1 In the 3rd year of the regime of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon involved Jerusalem as well as besieged it. 2 The Lord provided Jehoiakim king of Judah right into his hand, together with a few of the vessels of your home of God; as well as he brought them to the land of Shinar, to your home of his god, as well as he brought the vessels right into the treasury of his god.
3 Then the king purchased Ashpenaz, the principal of his authorities, to generate a few of the children of Israel, consisting of a few of the royal household as well as of the nobles, 4 young people in whom was no issue, that were fine-looking, revealing knowledge in every branch of knowledge, gifted with understanding as well as critical understanding, as well as that had capability for offering in the king’s court; as well as he bought him to educate them the literary works as well as language of theChaldeans 5 The king designated for them an everyday assignment from the king’s selection food as well as from the red wine which he consumed alcohol, as well as designated that they need to be informed 3 years, at the end of which they were to get in the king’s individual solution. 6 Now amongst them from the children of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael as well asAzariah 7 Then the leader of the authorities appointed brand-new names to them; as well as to Daniel he appointed the name Belteshazzar, to Hananiah Shadrach, to Mishael Meshach as well as to Azariah Abed- nego.
8 But Daniel comprised his mind that he would certainly not taint himself with the king’s selection food or with the red wine which he consumed alcohol; so he looked for consent from the leader of the authorities that he could not taint himself. 9 Now God given Daniel support as well as empathy in the view of the leader of the authorities, 10 as well as the leader of the authorities stated to Daniel, “I hesitate of my lord the king, that has designated your food as well as your beverage; for why should he see your faces looking even more haggard than the young people that are your very own age? Then you would certainly make me waive my head to the king.” 11 But Daniel stated to the movie director whom the leader of the authorities had actually designated over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael as well as Azariah, 12 “Please examination your slaves for 10 days, as well as allow us be provided some veggies to consume as well as water to consume. 13 Then allow our look be observed in your existence as well as the look of the young people that are consuming the king’s selection food; as well as handle your slaves according to what you see.”.
14 So he paid attention to them in this issue as well as checked them for 10 days. 15 At completion of 10 days their look appeared far better as well as they were fatter than all the young people that had actually been consuming the king’s selection food. 16 So the movie director remained to keep their selection food as well as the red wine they were to consume, as well as maintained providing veggies.
17 As for these 4 young people, God provided understanding as well as knowledge in every branch of literary works as well as knowledge; Daniel also recognized all type of visions as well as desires.
18 Then at the end of the days which the king had actually defined for offering them, the leader of the authorities offered them prior toNebuchadnezzar 19 The king spoke with them, as well as out of them all not one was located like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael as well as Azariah; so they got in the king’s individual solution. 20 As for each issue of knowledge as well as comprehending regarding which the king consulted them, he located them 10 times far better than all the illusionists as well as magicians that remained in all his world. 21 And Daniel proceeded up until the very first year of Cyrus the king.
