    Dan 6:1-3

    Daniel 6:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

    6 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
    2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
    3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
    Daniel 6:1-3

    CLV 1 Seemly is it before Darius to set up over the kingdom a hundred and twenty-seven satraps who shall be in all the kingdom. 2 Over them are three chancellors, Daniel being one of them. These satraps shall be reporting on their decrees to the three of them, so no damage will be done to the king's administration." 3 Then this Daniel is set permanently over the chancellors and satraps, forasmuch as an excellent spirit is in him; moreover the king reflects whether to set him up over all the kingdom."
    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    1 So Darius has this plan to people these men in charge to aid him they would answer to him but have a control of things for him. The kingdom of Babylon had fallen away so Daniel being third in charge no longer mattered and may have even been a negative to the new king.

    2 Daniel even though he should not have had favor he was one of three men that answered directly to the king for the satraps. For Daniel to gain this favor was because of the Lord to allow him to be used.

    3 The king even thinks of moving him from there Daniel tries to hide who he is because he did not want tot hated by the others but he could not it and they were seeing thru him, if we are truly servants of the Lord then we can’t hide it people will know that something is different about us.

    What we can learn from Daniel's experiences is that God can use us wherever we are to lead many to righteousness. We have no excuses for failing to be the salt of the earth. Despite being a slave, Daniel's righteousness is what got him real power not only in the Babylonian's kingdom but also in the Medo-Persian empire but that was not all . . . many of Darius' subjects converted to Judaism when they were convinced that the God Daniel worshipped was all-powerful. Of course that bit isn't in the bible but we can make an inference from what happened during Nebuchanezzar's reign.
    Nebuchadnezzar responded and said, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego, who has sent His angel and delivered His servants who put their trust in Him, violating the king's command, and yielded up their bodies so as not to serve or worship any god except their own God. 29"Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation or tongue that speaks anything offensive against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego shall be torn limb from limb and their houses reduced to a rubbish heap, inasmuch as there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way."
    And to lead many to righteousness, all Daniel had done was — obey the commandments of God.
