1 王制造金像并下令全国敬拜

2 尼布甲尼撒王派人召集总督、总监、省长、参谋、财政大臣、法官、裁判官和各省所有的官员,要他们参加尼布甲尼撒王为所立的像举行的揭幕典礼。

3 于是总督、总监、省长、参谋、财政大臣、法官、裁判官和省内所有其他的官员,都聚集起来,参加尼布甲尼撒王为所立的像举行的揭幕典礼;他们都站在尼布甲尼撒所立的像前。

4 那时,传令官大声呼叫说:“各国、各族、说各种语言的人哪!这是传给你们的命令:

5 你们一听见角、笛、琵琶、弦琴、竖琴、风笛和各种乐器的声音,就要俯伏,向尼布甲尼撒王所立的金像下拜。

6 凡不俯伏下拜的,就必立刻扔在烈火的窑中。”

7 因此,各国、各族和说各种语言的人,一听见角、笛、琵琶、弦琴、竖琴和各种乐器的声音,就都俯伏,向尼布甲尼撒王所立的金像下拜。

8 迦勒底人指控但以理之三友那时,有几个迦勒底人前来,诬蔑控告犹大人。

9 他们对尼布甲尼撒王说:“愿王万岁!

10 王啊,你曾下令,凡听见角、笛、琵琶、弦琴、竖琴、风笛和各种乐器声音的人,都要俯伏,向金像下拜。

11 凡不俯伏下拜的,就必被扔在烈火的窑中。

12 但有几个犹大人,就是王所派管理巴比伦省政务的沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌,王啊!这些人不理会你的命令,不事奉你的神,也不向你所立的金像下拜。”

13 王怒责三人当时尼布甲尼撒勃然大怒,吩咐人把沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌带来;他们就被带到王面前。

14 尼布甲尼撒问他们说:“沙得拉、米煞、亚伯尼歌啊!你们真的不事奉我的神,也不向我所立的金像下拜吗?

15 现在,如果你们想清楚,一听见角、笛、琵琶、弦琴、竖琴、风笛和各种乐器的声音,就俯伏向我所做的像下拜,那还可以。如果你们不下拜,就必立刻扔在烈火的窑中。哪里有神能救你们脱离我的手呢?”

16 拒绝拜金像沙得拉、米煞、亚伯尼歌回答王说:“尼布甲尼撒啊!这件事我们无需回答你。

17 如果我们被扔在火窑里,我们所事奉的 神必能拯救我们;王啊!他必拯救我们脱离烈火的窑和你的手。(本节或译:“如果我们所事奉的 神能拯救我们,王啊!他必拯救我们脱离烈火的窑和你的手。”)

18 即或不然,王啊!你要知道,我们决不事奉你的神,也不向你所立的金像下拜。”

19 三人在烈火的窑中毫无损伤当时尼布甲尼撒向沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌大发烈怒,连脸色也变了,吩咐人把窑烧热,比平常猛烈七倍。

20 又吩咐他军队中几个最精壮的士兵,把沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌绑起来,扔在烈火的窑中。

21 于是这三个人穿着外袍、长裤、头巾和身上其他的衣服,被绑起来,扔在烈火的窑中。

22 由于王的命令紧急,窑又烧得非常猛烈,那些把沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌抬起来的人,都被火焰烧死了。

23 而沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌这三个人仍被绑着,落入烈火的窑中。

24 王亲历其境就称颂 神那时尼布甲尼撒王非常惊奇,急忙起来,问他的谋臣说:“我们绑起来扔在火里的,不是三个人吗?”他们回答王说:“王啊!是的。”

25 王说:“但我见有四个人,并没有绑着,在火中走来走去,也没有受伤,并且那第四个的样貌好像神子。”

26 于是尼布甲尼撒走近烈火的窑口,说:“至高 神的仆人沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌啊!你们出来,到这里来吧。”沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌就从火中出来。

27 那些总督、总监、省长和王的谋臣,都聚拢来看这三个人,见火无力伤他们的身体;他们的头发没有烧焦,衣服没有烧坏,身上也没有火烧的气味。

28 尼布甲尼撒说:“沙得拉、米煞、亚伯尼歌的 神是应当称颂的,他差遣使者拯救那些倚靠他的仆人;他们违抗王的命令,宁愿舍命,除了自己的 神以外,不肯事奉敬拜任何其他的神。

29 我现在下令:无论各国、各族、说各种语言的人,凡说话得罪沙得拉、米煞、亚伯尼歌的 神的,必被碎尸万段,他的家也必成为废墟,因为没有别的神能这样施行拯救。”

30 于是王在巴比伦省提升了沙得拉、米煞和亚伯尼歌。
