Abstract

In chapter 6 of the book of Daniel, we read about a plot on the part of some ministers in King Darius’s court to deprive Daniel of the king’s favor (according to the Septuagint, there were only two such ministers) by asking the king to declare that anyone in the kingdom who addresses a petition to any god or man besides the king during the following thirty days will be thrown into a lions’ den. (From the article).
