“And ouer these, three Presidents, (of whom Daniel was first) that the Princes might giue accompts vnto them, and the King should haue no damage.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. It pleased Darius to set ouer the kingdome an hundred and twenty Princes, which should be ouer the whole kingdome. 2. And ouer these, three Presidents, (of whom Daniel was first) that the Princes might giue accompts vnto them, and the King should haue no damage. 3. Then this Daniel was preferred aboue the Presidents, and Princes, because an excellent spirit was in him, and the king thought to set him ouer the whole realme. 4. ¶ Then the Presidents and Princes sought to finde occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdome, but they could finde none occasion, nor fault: forasmuch as he was faithfull, neither was there any errour or fault found in him. 5. Then said these men, We shall not finde any occasion against this Daniel, except wee finde it against him concerning the Law of his God.
