Jehoiakim's captivity.

Daniel 1:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it. Daniel 1:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Ashpenaz taketh Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah.

Daniel 1:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king spoke 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; Daniel 1:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Daniel 1:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Daniel 1:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: Daniel 1:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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 Abed-nego.

They refusing the king's portion do prosper with pulse and water.

Daniel 1:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Daniel 1:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Daniel 1:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Daniel 1:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Daniel 1:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days. Daniel 1:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Daniel 1:21 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Daniel continued [even] unto the first year of king Cyrus.
