Jeremiah 4:5-8 Declare in Judah and proclaim in
Jerusalem, and say: "Blow the trumpet in the land; Cry,
'Gather together,' And say, 'Assemble yourselves, And
let us go into the fortified cities.' Set up the standard
toward Zion. Take refuge! Do not delay! For I will bring
disaster from the north, And great destruction." The
lion has come up from his thicket, And the destroyer
of nations is on his way. He has gone forth from his
place To make your land desolate. Your cities will be
laid waste, Without inhabitant. For this, clothe
yourself with sackcloth, Lament and wail. For the
fierce anger of the LORD Has not turned back from
us.

Daniel 1:1-21 In the third year of the reign of
Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of
Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it. And the Lord
gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part
of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried
into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he
brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.
And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his
eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children
of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes;
Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and
skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and
understanding science, and such as had ability in them
to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might
teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.
And the king appointed them a daily provision of the
king's meat, and of the wine which he drank: so
nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof
they might stand before the king. Now among these
were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah,
Mishael, and Azariah: Unto whom the prince of the
eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name
of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach;
and to Azariah, of Abednego. But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would
not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank:
therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Now God
had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the prince of the
eunuchs. And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord
the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he
see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort?
then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.Then said Daniel to
Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah,
Mishael, and Azariah, Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and
let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Then let our
countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the
children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest,
deal with thy servants. So he consented to them in this matter, and
proved them ten days. And at the end of ten days their countenances
appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat
the portion of the king's meat. Thus Melzar took away the portion of
their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse. As
for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning
and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. Now
at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in,
then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.
And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none
like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before
the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king
enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians
and astrologers that were in all his realm. And Daniel continued even unto
the first year of king Cyrus.
