Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations,
and languages that dwell in all the earth:
"Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree,
that in all my royal dominion
people are to tremble and fear
before the God of Daniel,
for he is the living God,
his kingdom shall never be destroyed,
and his dominion shall be to the end.
He delivers and rescues;
he works signs and wonders
in heaven and on earth,
he who has saved Daniel
from the power of the lions."
