The condemnation (Dan 13:41-13:41)

“Because they were

Elders of the people,

The assembly

Believed them.

They condemned her

To death.”

These two old judges were convincing, since they were the chosen elders of the people. Thus, they issued a condemnation of death for Susanna, since a stoning death was the common punishment for adultery. Noticeably absent from this story was her husband, the good Joakim.
