Daniel 3:23-90  Prayer in the Fiery Furnace (Praising God)


23 But these three men, that is, Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, fell down bound in the midst of the furnace of burning fire.

 

And they walked in the midst of the flame, praising God, and blessing the Lord. 25 Then Azarias standing up, prayed in this manner, and opening his mouth in the midst of the fire, he said: 26 Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our fathers, and your name is worthy of praise, and glorious for ever: 27 For you are just in all that you have done to us, and all your works are true, and your ways right, and all your judgments true. 28 For you have executed true judgments in all the things that you have brought upon us, and upon Jerusalem, the holy city of our fathers: for according to truth and judgment, you have brought all these things upon us for our sins. 29 For we have sinned, and committed iniquity, departing from you: and we have trespassed in all things: 30 And we have not hearkened to your commandments, nor have we observed nor done as you had commanded us, that it might go well with us. 31 Wherefore, all that you have brought upon us, and everything that you have done to us, you have done in true judgment: 32 And you have delivered us into the hands of our enemies that are unjust, and most wicked, and prevaricators, and to a king unjust, and most wicked beyond all that are upon the earth. 33 And now we cannot open our mouths: we have become a shame, and a reproach to your servants, and to them that worship you. 34 Deliver us not up for ever, we beseech you, for your name's sake, and abolish not your covenant. 35 And take not away your mercy from us, for the sake of Abraham, your beloved, and Isaac, your servant, and Israel, your holy one: 36 To whom you have spoken, promising that you would multiply their seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand that is on the sea shore. 37 For we, O Lord, are diminished more than any nation, and are brought low in all the earth this day for our sins. 38 Neither is there at this time prince, or leader, or prophet, or holocaust, or sacrifice, or oblation, or incense, or place of first fruits before you, 39 that we may find your mercy: nevertheless, in a contrite heart and humble spirit let us be accepted. 40 As in holocausts of rams, and bullocks, and as in thousands of fat lambs: so let our sacrifice be made in your sight this day, that it may please you: for there is no confusion to them that trust in you. 41 And now we follow you with all our heart, and we fear you, and seek your face. 42 Put us not to confusion, but deal with us according to your meekness, and according to the multitude of your mercies. 43 And deliver us, according to your wonderful works, and give glory to your name, O Lord: 44 And let all them be confounded that show evils to your servants, let them be confounded in all your might, and let their strength be broken: 45 And let them know that you are the Lord, the only God, and glorious over all the world.

 

46 Now the king's servants that had cast them in, ceased not to heat the furnace with brimstone and tow, and pitch, and dry sticks, 47 and the flame mounted up above the furnace nine and forty cubits: 48 And it broke forth, and burnt such of the Chaldeans as it found near the furnace. 49 But the angel of the Lord went down with Azarias and his companions into the furnace: and he drove the flame of the fire out of the furnace, 50 and made the midst of the furnace like the blowing of a wind bringing dew, and the fire touched them not at all, nor troubled them, nor did them any harm. 51 Then these three, as with one mouth, praised and glorified and blessed God, in the furnace, saying: 52 Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our fathers; and worthy to be praised, and glorified, and exalted above all for ever: and blessed is the holy name of your glory: and worthy to be praised and exalted above all, in all ages. 53 Blessed are you in the holy temple of your glory: and exceedingly to be praised, and exceeding glorious for ever. 54 Blessed are you on the throne of your kingdom, and exceedingly to be praised, and exalted above all for ever. 55 Blessed are you, that behold the depths, and sit upon the cherubims: and worthy to be praised and exalted above all for ever. 56 Blessed are you in the firmament of heaven: and worthy of praise, and glorious for ever. 57 All you works of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 58 O you angels of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 59 O you heavens, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 60 O all you waters that are above the heavens, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 61 O all you powers of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 62 O you sun and moon, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 63 O you stars of heaven, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 64 O every shower and dew, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 65 O all you spirits of God, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 66 O you fire and heat, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 67 O you cold and heat, bless the Lord, praise and exalt him above all for ever. 68 O you dews and hoar frosts, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 69 O you frost and cold, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 70 O you ice and snow, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 71 O you nights and days, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 72 O you light and darkness, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 73 O you lightnings and clouds, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 74 O let the earth bless the Lord: let it praise and exalt him above all for ever. 75 O you mountains and hills, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 76 O all you things that spring up in the earth, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 77 O you fountains, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 78 O you seas and rivers, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 79 O you whales, and all that move in the waters, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 80 O all you fowls of the air, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 81 O all you beasts and cattle, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 82 O you sons of men, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 83 O let Israel bless the Lord: let them praise and exalt him above all for ever. 84 O you priests of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 85 O you servants of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 86 O you spirits and souls of the just, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 87 O you holy and humble of heart, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. 88 O Ananias, Azarias, and Misael, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. For he has delivered us from hell, and saved us out of the hand of death, and delivered us out of the midst of the burning flame, and saved us out of the midst of the fire. 89 O give thanks to the Lord, because he is good: because his mercy endures for ever and ever. 90 O all you religious, bless the Lord, the God of gods: praise him, and give him thanks, because his mercy endures for ever and ever.
