During the captivity of the Jews in Babylon, in the sixth century b.c., the prophet Daniel continued to pray to his God against the express command of the king. As a result, Daniel was thrown into a lions' den to be devoured. But God sent an angel to protect him, and he emerged miraculously unharmed the next day.
Note: Daniel's situation is an image for an impossibly hostile environment.
