Lesson 4: The Den of Lions

Readings: Daniel 6: 1-28

Now there was a new king called Darius. He appointed presidents and princes (or satraps) to take charge of the kingdom. Daniel was among them. It looks as though some of them were not honest. Daniel was always truthful, and the others hated him because he would do nothing dishonest. They tried to get him into trouble with the king, but could not find grounds for any charges against him. A wise king would have been suspicious of their plot, but it made Darius feel very important.
