1 Svide se Dariju te postavi nad carstvom sto i pedeset upravitelja da budu nad svim carstvom;

2 A nad njima tri starešine, od kojih jedan beše Danilo, kojima će upravitelji davati račune da ne bi caru bilo štete.

3 A taj Danilo nadvišivaše starešine i upravitelje, jer u njemu beše velik duh i car mišljaše da ga postavi nad svim carstvom svojim.

4 Tada starešine i upravitelji gledahu kako bi našli šta da zamere Danilu radi carstva; ali ne mogahu naći zabave ni pogreške, jer beše veran, i ne nalažaše se u njega pogreške ni mane.

5 Tada rekoše oni ljudi: Nećemo naći na tog Danila ništa, ako ne nađemo šta na nj radi zakona Boga njegovog.

6 Tada dođoše starešine i upravitelji k caru, i rekoše mu ovako: Darije care, da si živ doveka!

7 Sve starešine u carstvu, poglavari i upravitelji, većnici i vojvode dogovoriše se da se postavi carska naredba i oštra zabrana da ko bi se god zamolio za šta kome god bogu ili čoveku za trideset dana osim tebi, care, da se baci u jamu lavovsku.

8 Zato, care, postavi tu zabranu i napiši da se ne može promeniti, po zakonu midskom i persijskom, koji je nepromenljiv.

9 I car Darije napisa knjigu i zabranu.

10 A Danilo kad dozna da je knjiga napisana, otide svojoj kući, gde behu otvoreni prozori u njegovoj sobi prema Jerusalimu, i padaše na kolena svoja tri puta na dan i moljaše se i hvalu davaše Bogu svom kao šta činjaše pre.

11 Tada se sabraše oni ljudi, i nađoše Danila gde se moli i pripada Bogu svom.

12 I otidoše te rekoše caru za carsku zabranu: Nisi li napisao zapovest, da ko bi se god zamolio kome god bogu ili čoveku za trideset dana, osim tebi, care, da se baci u jamu lavovsku? Car odgovori i reče: Tako je po zakonu midskom i persijskom, koji je nepromenljiv.

13 Tada odgovoriše i rekoše caru: Danilo, koji je između roblja Judina, ne haje za te, care, ni za zabranu koju si napisao, nego se moli tri puta na dan svojom molitvom.

14 Tada car čuvši to ožalosti se vrlo, i naumi da izbavi Danila, i truđaše se do zahoda sunčanog da ga izbavi.

15 Tada oni ljudi sabraše se kod cara i rekoše caru: Znaj, care, da je zakon u Midijana i Persijana da se nikakva zabrana i naredba koju postavi car, ne menja.

16 Tada car reče te dovedoše Danila i baciše ga u jamu lavovsku; i car progovori i reče Danilu: Bog tvoj, kome bez prestanka služiš, neka te izbavi.

17 I donesoše kamen i metnuše jami na vrata, i car ga zapečati svojim prstenom i prstenom svojih knezova da se ništa ne promeni za Danila.

18 Tada otide car u svoj dvor, i prenoći ne jedavši niti dopustivši da mu se donese šta čim bi se razveselio, i ne može zaspati.

19 Potom car usta ujutro rano i otide brže k jami lavovskoj.

20 I kad dođe k jami, viknu Danila žalosnim glasom; i progovori car i reče Danilu: Danilo, slugo Boga Živoga, Bog tvoj, kome služiš bez prestanka, može li te izbaviti od lavova?

21 Tada Danilo reče caru: Care, da si živ doveka!

22 Bog moj posla anđela svog i zatvori usta lavovima, te mi ne naudiše; jer se nađoh čist pred Njim, a ni tebi care, ne učinih zla.

23 Tada se car veoma obradova tom, i zapovedi da izvade Danila iz jame. I izvadiše Danila iz jame, i ne nađe se rane na njemu, jer verova Bogu svom.

24 Potom zapovedi car, te dovedoše ljude koji behu optužili Danila, i baciše u jamu lavovsku njih, decu njihovu i žene njihove; i još ne dođoše na dno jami, a lavovi ih zgrabiše i sve im kosti potrše.

25 Tada car Darije pisa svim narodima i plemenima i jezicima što življahu u svoj zemlji: Mir da vam se umnoži.

26 Od mene je zapovest da se u svoj državi carstva mog svak boji i straši Boga Danilovog, jer je On Bog živi, koji ostaje doveka, i carstvo se Njegovo neće rasuti, i vlast će Njegova biti do kraja;

27 On izbavlja i spasava, i čini znake i čudesa na nebu i na zemlji, On je izbavio Danila od sile lavovske.

28 I taj Danilo beše srećan za carovanja Darijevog i za carovanja Kira Persijanca.
