And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;
With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.
Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men
He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is
the decree so
hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men
of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men
of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.
Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
