  • Destruction of the envious: Dan. 6:24
    • Job 5:2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one. (Eliphaz)
    • Prov 27:4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
the problem from pride
The Problem from Pride
  • Darius manipulated by the united effort of the administration (Dan. 6:6-9)
  • The law suggested he was supreme (30 days)
  • Irrevocable law showed he was not: 8, 12, 15
  • Nebuchadnezzar: 4:29-32

  • Create conflict (Dan. 6:5)
  • Two sources of authority: Matt. 21:25
