Tring to find complaints against Daniel (Dan 6:4-6:5)

“Then the presidents,

As well as the satraps,

Tried to find

Grounds

For complaint

Against Daniel,

In connection

With the kingdom.

But they could not find

Any grounds

For complaint

Or any corruption,

Because he was faithful.

No negligence,

No corruption,

Could be found

In him.

Then these men said.

‘We shall not find

Any ground

For complaint

Against this Daniel.

Unless we find it

In connection

With the law

Of his God.’”

Apparently, the other presidents and satraps were not happy about Daniel. They tried to find grounds to complain against Daniel in connection with his rulings in the kingdom. However, they were not able to find any grounds for complaints because of corruption or negligence, because Daniel was a faithful servant of the kingdom. Finally, they said, they might complain about his connection to the law of God, rather than the kingdom.
