Then Daniel began distinguishing himself[a] above the administrators and the satraps because[b] an exceptional spirit was in him, and so the king planned to appoint him over the whole kingdom. Then the other administrators and satraps began to seek[c] to find a pretext against Daniel in connection with the kingdom,[d] but they were not able to find any pretext and corruption[e] because[f] he was trustworthy, and no[g] negligence or corruption[h] could be found in him.[i]
