9Now God had brought Daniel into fauour and tender loue with the Prince of the Eunuches. 10And the Prince of the Eunuches said vnto Daniel, I feare my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat, and your drinke: for why should he see your faces worse liking then the children which are of your sort? then shall yee make mee indanger my head to the King. 11Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the Prince of the Eunuches had set ouer Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,12Proue thy seruants, I beseech thee, ten dayes, and let them giue pulse to eat, and water to drinke. 13Then let our countenances be looked vpon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the Kings meate: and as thou seest, deale with thy seruants.
