Daniel in the Lions’ den


There was a new king of Babylon. His name was Darius. King Darius chose men to help him. Daniel was their leader. The other men did not like Daniel. They did not want him to be their leader

The men knew Daniel prayed to God. They went to the king. They asked him to make a new law. The king made the new law. It said people could not pray to God. People who did not obey the law would be put in a lions’ den. The lions would eat them.



Daniel prayed to God three times a day. The wicked men saw Daniel praying. They told the king.


The king knew Daniel must be put in the lions’ den. The king tried to think of a way to save him. But the law could not be changed. The king told his servants to put Daniel in the lions’ den. King Darius told Daniel God would save him.

In the morning the king went to the lions’ den. He called to Daniel. Daniel answered. The lions had not hurt him. He said God had shut the lions’ mouths.

The king was very happy. Daniel was safe because God had helped him.
