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)
