Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not worried about what will happen to us. If we are thrown into the flaming furnace, our God is able to deliver us; and he will deliver us out of your hand, Your Majesty.
But even if he doesn’t, please understand, sir, that even then we will never under any circumstances serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have erected. “
“O King Nebuchadnezzar, listen to me – stop sinning; do what you know is right; be merciful to the poor. Perhaps even yet God will spare you.”
Daniel 3:16, and 4:27
