旧约 但以理书 第6章

第1段

大流士随心所愿,立一百二十个总督,治理通国。
It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;

第2段

又在他们以上立总长三人(但以理在其中),使总督在他们三人面前回覆事务,免得王受亏损。
And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.

第3段

因这但以理有美好的灵性,所以显然超乎其馀的总长和总督,王又想立他治理通国。
Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.

第4段

那时,总长和总督寻梢但以理误国的把柄,为要叁他。只是找不着他的错误过失,因他忠心办事,毫无错误过失。
Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.

第5段

那些人便说,我们要找叁这但以理的把柄,除非在他神的律法中就寻不着。
Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.

第6段

于是,总长和总督纷纷聚集来见王,说,愿大流士王万岁。
Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.

第7段

国中的总长,钦差,总督,谋士,和巡抚彼此商议,要立一条坚定的禁令(或作求王下旨要立一条云云),三十日内,不拘何人,若在王以外,或向神或向人求什么,就必扔在狮子坑中。
All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.

第8段

王阿,现在求你立这禁令,加盖玉玺,使禁令决不更改。照玛代和波斯人的例是不可更改的。
Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.

第9段

于是大流士王立这禁令,加盖玉玺。
Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.

第10段

但以理知道这禁令盖了玉玺,就到自己家里(他楼上的窗户开向耶路撒冷),一日三次,双膝跪在他神面前,祷告感谢,与素常一样。
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

第11段

那些人就纷纷聚集,见但以理在他神面前祈祷恳求。
Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.

第12段

他们便进到王前,提王的禁令,说,王阿,三十日内不拘何人,若在王以外,或向神或向人求什么,必被扔在狮子坑中。王不是在这禁令上盖了玉玺吗。王回答说,实有这事,照玛代。
Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.

第13段

他们对王说,王阿,那被掳之犹大人中的但以理不理你,也不遵你盖了玉玺的禁令,他竟一日三次祈祷。
Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.

第14段

王听见这话,就甚愁烦,一心要救但以理,筹划解救他,直到日落的时候。
Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.

第15段

那些人就纷纷聚集来见王,说,王阿,当知道玛代人和波斯人有例,凡王所立的禁令和律例都不可更改。
Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.

第16段

王下令,人就把但以理带来,扔在狮子坑中。王对但以理说,你所常事奉的神,他必救你。
Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.

第17段

有人搬石头放在坑口,王用自己的玺和大臣的印,封闭那坑,使惩办但以理的事毫无更改。
And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.

第18段

王回宫,终夜禁食,无人拿乐器到他面前,并且睡不着觉。
Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.

第19段

次日黎明,王就起来,急忙往狮子坑那里去。
Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.

第20段

临近坑边,哀声呼叫但以理,对但以理说,永生神的仆人但以理阿,你所常事奉的神能救你脱离狮子吗。
And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

第21段

但以理对王说,愿王万岁。
Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

第22段

我的神差遣使者,封住狮子的口,叫狮子不伤我。因我在神面前无辜,我在王面前也没有行过亏损的事。
My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

第23段

王就甚喜乐,吩咐人将但以理从坑里系上来。于是但以理从坑里被系上来,身上毫无伤损,因为信靠他的神。
Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.

第24段

王下令,人就把那些控告但以理的人,连他们的妻子儿女都带来,扔在狮子坑中。他们还没有到坑底,狮子就抓住(原文作胜了)他们,咬碎他们的骨头。
And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

第25段

那时,大流士王传旨,晓谕住在全地各方,各国,各族的人说,愿你们大享平安。
Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.

第26段

现在我降旨晓谕我所统辖的全国人民,要在但以理的神面前,战兢恐惧。因为他是永远长存的活神,他的国永不败坏。他的权柄永存无极。
I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.

第27段

他护庇人,搭救人,在天上地下施行神迹奇事,救了但以理脱离狮子的口。
He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.

第28段

如此,这但以理当大流士王在位的时候,和波斯王居鲁士在位的时候,大享亨通。
So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
