Daniel 3:6
Parallel Verses
New International Version
Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace."

King James Bible
And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

Darby Bible Translation
and whosoever doth not fall down and worship shall that same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

World English Bible
and whoever doesn't fall down and worship shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

Young's Literal Translation
and whoso doth not fall down and do obeisance, in that hour he is cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.'

Daniel 3:6 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Shall the same hour - This is the first place in the Old Testament where we find the division of time into hours. The Greeks say that Anaximander was the inventor. He had it probably from the Chaldeans, among whom this division was in use long before Anaximander was born.

Be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace - This was an ancient mode of punishment among the Chaldeans, if we may credit the tradition that Abram was cast into such a fire by this idolatrous people because he would not worship their idols.

DANIEL iii. 16, 17, 18. O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. We read this morning, instead of the Te Deum, the Song of the Three Children, beginning, 'Oh all ye works of the Lord, bless ye the Lord: praise

Daniel
Daniel is called a prophet in the New Testament (Matt. xxiv. 15). In the Hebrew Bible, however, the book called by his name appears not among the prophets, but among "the writings," between Esther and Ezra. The Greek version placed it between the major and the minor prophets, and this has determined its position in modern versions. The book is both like and unlike the prophetic books. It is like them in its passionate belief in the overruling Providence of God and in the sure consummation of His
