My question stems from the third chapter of the book of Daniel. When the three Hebrews addressed the King in verses 17 and 18. Were they saying; If you throw us in the fire God will deliver us, and if you don't throw us into the fire we will not bow to worship you? or are they saying If you throw us into the fire God can deliver us, but if he does not deliver us we will not worship you? I have always thought that the IF statement went with God delivering them but my Brother In-law said he thinks it goes with being thrown into the fire. After going back and reading the verses, I not 100% convienced either way. Which is correct and why? I'm not sure which forum this belongs in so if a Mod want's to move it, go ahead.
