"He will help, won't He?"

In the biblical story of Daniel, See Dan., Chap. 6; King Darius, who was outside the den of lions, reassured Daniel, who by now was inside: "Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee."

But apparently the king's faith in God's deliverance easily wavered. He spent a sleepless night, and early the next morning "went in haste" to find out what had happened, crying: "O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?"

It's almost as if he had been pleading, "He will help you, won't He?" Then Darius saw with his own eyes how well God had delivered Daniel, for "no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God." And the whole heathen kingdom heard about this "God of Daniel," who "delivereth and rescueth."
