In this passage the king made a law that " Obedience to the king's decree would have caused Daniel to sin against a direct command of God: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" Exodus Therefore, it was necessary for Daniel to disobey the king's law.
However, was his disobedience an act of self-righteous rebellion, or was it submissive noncompliance? It is imperative that we examine Daniel's attitude toward his king for the answer to this question. In the first place, Daniel maintained a close personal relationship with God, even though it meant that he had to disobey his king.
He previously submitted to the king's authority in all things, and he did not disobey until the king passed a new law that directly An Dro / Romanian Air - Various - Riverdance/Lord Of The Dance (CD) God's expressed will: that believers worship Him alone, praying and giving thanks.
Although Daniel knew the dire consequences of choosing to disobey in this instance, he did not do so defiantly, nor did he run away from those consequences. Daniel continued to recognize the king's right as a duly appointed authority to execute punishment. An Dro / Romanian Air - Various - Riverdance/Lord Of The Dance (CD) was free from all rebellious or self-righteous attitudes before, during, and after his disobedience.
Daniel's speech after God delivered him from the lions is a perfect example of willing submission to an authority in a situation requiring submissive noncompliance. My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me, forasmuch as before Him innocence was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
Daniel's example of submission is a far cry from the defiant "I'll never let a man tell me what to do," that we hear many women say today. Such outcries usually come from women who try to justify their refusal to obey God's command to submit to their husbands by claiming that he "might" ask them to do something that would violate their personal rights.
Such women lie in wait, expecting their husbands to err, so that their before-the-fact attitude of non-submission will be vindicated. They often fabricate "what if's" and treat the rare misuses of their husbands' authority as if they were common, everyday events. I believe, the percentage of husbands who actually ask their godly wives to sin is very, very small. Therefore, for most women this is a moot point, born more from a desire to escape submission entirely, than a true concern over wronging God.
The attitude of women who attempt to pre-justify non-submission is a continuation of the garden-variety rebelliousness that has existed since the fall of mankind. By contrast, Daniel's example is a testimony of what is possible when a believer obeys God by submitting to human authorities who actually do act unrighteously. No, obedience and submission are not synonymous. The difference, however, is not necessarily seen in one's overt actions. Obedience is an external act of compliance, while submission toward any authority is a respectful attitude that comes before, during, and after all actions.
Where a list of rules and commands must precede obedience, submission precedes rules and supersedes law. Submission includes a woman's freedom. Trending News.

Update: Thanks. Now I get it. The way they play it, the bouzouki comes in on the e3, so I might have some of the pickup notes in the tune, but this is the only way it seemed to fit, unless the first phrase gets cut off at the An Dro / Romanian Air - Various - Riverdance/Lord Of The Dance (CD). The tune following it was titled "Romanian Rollick", no doubt by the lads themselves, not having the original title.
The company who made it apparently licenced it out to other companies, along with recordings by Brendan Larrissey and "Moher", who have tracks on your CD, but, along with "Cran", are given no credit for their musicianship. The title of "Riverdance" is sheer opportunism to cash in on the success of that show. It is not unique to this tune if it applies at all….
