And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
 Then King Darius wrote:
To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth:
Peace be multiplied to you.
 I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.
For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
 He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.  He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,  in whom we have redemption through His blood,* the forgiveness of sins.
 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
 Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
 Who is like the LORD our God,
Who dwells on high,
 Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
 He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
 That He may seat him with princes—
With the princes of His people.
 He grants the barren woman a home,
Like a joyful mother of children.
Praise the LORD!
