Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
made a huge gold idol. It was 90 feet tall and 9 feet wide. The king
told the people, "When you hear the music play, everyone must bow down
to the idol. If you don't bow down, you will be thrown into a blazing
The people of Israel had been taken captive and some of them were now
living in the land of Babylon. Among them were three young men who had
become leaders in the land of Babylon. They were Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego. These three young men believed in and worshiped the true God,
and they would not bow down to an idol.
They said, "Our God will deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and
even if He doesn't deliver us, O king, we will not serve your gods, nor
will we worship the golden image which you have set up." What bravery!
The king had the furnace heated 7 times hotter than usual. He had the
men tied up and thrown into the furnace. The fire was so hot, it killed
the men who threw them in. When the king looked into the fire, he was
amazed. The men were untied, walking around, and there was a fourth
person in the fire with them! He said, "Didn't we throw three men in
the fire? I see four men loose, walking around, and they are not hurt."
The fourth person looked like a heavenly being .
The king called their names and ordered them to come out of the fire.
When they came out, they were not hurt at all. Their hair had not been
burned, and they didn't even smell like smoke.
The king made a law that everyone should honor the God of Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego because no other God could deliver like he could.
