Daniel 6:7
Good News Translation
All of us who administer your empire--the supervisors, the governors, the lieutenant governors, and the other officials--have agreed that Your Majesty should issue an order and enforce it strictly. Give orders that for thirty days no one be permitted to request anything from any god or from any human being except from Your Majesty. Anyone who violates this order is to be thrown into a pit filled with lions.

Contemporary English Version
