The Three Hebrew Children

The three Hebrew children: Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah
known also as Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego
refused to bow down and worship the golden image
whose height was sixty cubits and breadth was six cubits
when the six instruments played as decreed of Nebuchadnezzer
So the king had them thrown into a fire seven times hotter than needed
But God protected Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego from the fire
Not even a hair on their heads was singed

(Dan 1: 7,3: 1-30)

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
