A variation of the biblical name Daniel. He was honest and hard working, and was always given the most important jobs which made the other workers of King Darius jealous
. If an effort to get Daniel in trouble, the workers tricked the king
into making a law that anyone that prays to another should be thrown into the lions' den to die. The workers then brought Daniel to the king
to be punished because he broke the law. The king
tried to reverse the law because he didn’t want Daniel to die, but he had to act on the order by the end of the day. He told Daniel, "I hope your God who you serve and pray to will rescue you! and the king
cried. He couldn’t eat or sleep because he was so worried. The next morning
, the king
ran to the lions' den and shouted, "Daniel, has your God who you serve and pray to rescued you from the lions?" Daniel responded, "O king, live forever
! My God sent an angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me because I have done nothing
wrong." The king
was so happy, ordered Daniel be removed from the den, punished the workers, and made a new law and he said, "Daniel's God is great, and I order that everyone in my kingdom must respect
the Lord God, who rescued Daniel from the hungry lions."
God sent Tanniel an angel to save him from the lions' den.
