Daniel in the Lions' Den (1615)


Daniel in the Lions' Den (1615)
Peter Paul Rubens 1577 – 1640
oil on canvas (224 × 330 cm) — 1615
Daniel 6:23 - Then was the king exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
Daniel had been thrown into the lions' den because he continued to pray to his own god, even though king Darius had forbidden it. One day later the king came to inspect the lions. As the stone covering the den was rolled away, Daniel thanked God for letting him live. When the king saw Daniel still alive, he immediately set him free.
