Daniel 1:12 Parallel
CommentaryDaniel 1:12 Parallel Commentaries
Don't be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.
Daniel spoke with the attendant who had been appointed by the chief of staff to look after Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah.
"At the end of the ten days, see how we look compared to the other young men who are eating the king's food. Then make your decision in light of what you see."
So after that, the attendant fed them only vegetables instead of the food and wine provided for the others.
