The king leaves the food for Bel (Dan 14:14-14:15)

“After they had gone out,

The king set out

The food for Bel.

Then Daniel ordered

His servants

To bring ashes.

They scattered them

Throughout the whole temple,

In the presence

Of the king alone.

Then they went out.

He shut the door.

He sealed it

With the king’s signet.

Then they departed.

During the night,

The priests came,

As usual,

With their wives,

With their children.

They ate everything.

They drank everything.”

After the priests of the Bel temple had left, the king put out the food for the idol god Bel. Then Daniel ordered that the king’s servants scatter ashes throughout the whole temple, in the presence of the king alone. Then, they went out, shut the door, and then sealed it with the king’s insignia. After that, they left. During the night, as usual, the Bel priests came with their wives and children. They entered through the secret entrance to the temple, so that they were able to eat and drink everything in there.

The north gate entrance (Ezek 44:4-44:4)

“Then Yahweh

Brought me

By way

Of the north gate

To the front

Of the temple.

I looked!

Behold!

The glory of Yahweh

Filled the temple

Of Yahweh!

I fell upon my face.”

Yahweh then brought Ezekiel to the north gate in front of the Temple. Ezekiel looked up. Then, lo and behold, the bright glory of Yahweh filled the whole Temple. Ezekiel did what he always did. He fell on his face with respect.
