Scene One

King: YOU! Servant! Bring me the records of my reign!

Nutesh: yes, of course! your majesty

(they leave the throne room)

Arwia: why does always want to hear the historical records over and over??

Nutesh: he likes to hear about himself

Arwia: Pride at its worst… there are the scrolls, grab them Nutesh

(they re-enter the throne room, Nutesh walks up to a table and opens one of the scrolls)

Nutesh: your majesty, on the second day of the month of Araḫ Kislimu your greatness ordered to be set over all the great land of Babylon 120 straps, and three governors to rule the satraps, these three men were Ugurnaszir, son of Demeetheresu, Ekurzakir, son of Apuulluunideeszu and Daniel, a Hebrew

King: We never did find out his fathers name didn’t we?

Arwia: Your majesty, If I do say so myself, Daniel was certainly wise choice!

King: I do agree, I must confess I have been thinking along the lines of setting him over the whole realm! As sort of a…

All princes: NO!!!!

Rihat: no your majesty you can not!

King: And who are you to tell me If I can or can not do anything?? What basis do you have for your disagreement

Seluku: Daniel Is not… Trustworthy!

King: I have not seen any deceitfulness in him!

Rihat: that may be so, but Daniel is definitely…

Tattannu: Lazy!!

King: where did you get this …faulty… information?

Seluku: but, but, but, he is so ugly!

Tattannu: yeah! He is right your majesty!

Rihat: you cant have an ugly man set over the whole realm!!!!!! Daniel is sooo UGLY!!

Seluku: Fat too!

(Rihat and Tattannu stare at Seluku)

King: Excuse me? You jealous fools! Get out!

Rihat, Seluku, Tattannu: Yes your majesty
Scene Two

(a week later)

King: That’s enough for today. Let’s move on to other business

Rihat: Well great king. We feel like you are not getting enough adoration

King: Oh Really? This is extremely serious! What do you suggest??

Seluku: we have a proposition for you that you our great king should make a kingdom wide decree that states that anyway who prays to any man or god except for our great king within the next thirty days should be thrown into a pit of snakes!

Tattannu: Wait I don’t think that snakes actually eat people, what about a fiery furnace?

Rihat: Been there, done that, the people are desperate for something new.

Seluku: Wait I got it! What about a Den of Lions?

Tattannu: Perfect!

King: Whatever the punishment is, it does not matter to me I will seal this decree with my official ring!

Scene Three

(Guards storm in, dragging Daniel)

King: what is the meaning of this!?

Rihat: Your Majesty, last week you signed a royal decree…his majesty knows the one, and this very morning we found this man, that you call Daniel kneeling, towards the broken city of Jerusalem, praying to God of the Hebrews!

Seluku: this is clearly a violation of your most sacred law

Tattannu: So the law states that this man, must be thrown into a den of lions, right away!

Seluku: for at least 12 hours (the other two smirk)

King: Daniel I.,..

Daniel: your majesty you must do what you must do.

King: take him away and do to him as my decree states. Daniel, pray to your God, and if your God can protect You until morning, you shall walk a free man.

Daniel: Yes my king.

Scene Four

King: (running up to the den) Daniel, servant of the living God had your God whom you serve piously, been able to protect you from the den of lions?

Daniel: May you oh king live forever! My God sent his angel and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done anything wrong before you your majesty.

King: Praise be to the God of Daniel! Let us go back and celebrate your protection!

Scene Five

King: You foolish princes, you all must die! You, your children, your children’s children, and all your wives! Guards throw them all into the den of lions!
To all my people, may you all prosper greatly! I issue a decree that in ever part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end. He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.”
And to Daniel, May you proper greatly as long as you live!

Good job! I really enjoyed reading this.

Could we add a little extra after the scene between Daniel and Darius - the one where Daniel is about to be thrown into the den? I think it would add to the drama of the scene to show how agonized Darius is over what he has allowed.

My concern here is the same as on "Azog's" chapter; choppy. Lots of short scenes.

Great job with the dialogue!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again Rolling Eyes I'm not a very good script writer Sad I'm not a dialog person much to speak of.

Okay Georgie, I will try to work something out with that, I can bring a copy to bibleclass/vollyball, and maybe you can give me some ideas.
