Quote from the book, "Nebuchadnezza ordered an officer to bring a number of Israelite boys back to Babylon. Among those taken was a boy named Daniel. Each day, as the king had commanded, the boys were served the choicest food and wine. But Daniel asked permission to eat only vegetables and drink only water. He did not want to eat the king's food because doing so was against God's law. God caused the king's officer to look kindly on Daniel."
