7 Also, seek(A) the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray(B) to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
13 Then they said to the king, “Daniel, who is one of the exiles from Judah,(A) pays no attention(B) to you, Your Majesty, or to the decree you put in writing. He still prays three times a day.”
