Daniel 14:27-42

In those days, the Babylonians went to
the king and demanded: Hand over to
us Daniel, who has destroyed Bel and
killed the dragon, or we will kill you
and your family. When he saw himself
threatened with violence, the king was
forced to hand Daniel over to them.
They threw Daniel into a lions’ den,
where he remained six days. In the
den were seven lions, and two
carcasses and two sheep had been
given to them daily. But now they were
given nothing, so that they would
devour Daniel. In Judea there was a
prophet, Habacuc; he mixed some
bread in a bowl with the stew he had
boiled, and was going to bring it to
the reapers in the field, when an Angel
of the Lord told him, Take the lunch
you have to Daniel in the lions’ den at
Babylon. But Habacuc answered,
Babylon, sir, I have never seen, and I
do not know the den! The Angel of the Lord seized him by the crown of his
head and carried him by the hair; with
the speed of the wind, he set him
down in Babylon above the den.
Daniel, servant of God, cried
Habacuc, take the lunch God has sent
you. Thou hast remembered me, O
God, said Daniel; Thou hast not
forsaken those who love Thee. While
Daniel began to eat, the Angel of the
Lord at once brought Habacuc back to
his own place. On the seventh day the
king came to mourn for Daniel. As he
came to the den and looked in, there
was Daniel, sitting in the midst of the
lions! The king cried aloud, Thou art
great, O Lord, the God of Daniel!
Daniel he took out of the lions’ den,
but those who had tried to destroy him
he threw into the den, and they were
devoured in a moment before his
eyes. Then the king said: Let all the
inhabitants of the whole earth fear the
God of Daniel; for He is the Savior,
working signs and wonders in the
earth, Who has delivered Daniel out of
the lions’ den.

Psalm 9:11-13

They trust in Thee who cherish Thy
Name, O Lord, for Thou forsake not
those who seek Thee. Sing praise to
the Lord enthroned in Sion, for He has
not forgotten the cry of the afflicted.
