And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.
It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.
So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;
Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.
