AzariYAH Prays In The Fiery Furnace
1 [In Babylon, in the fiery-furnace, AzariYah and his two Hebrew friends] walk in the middle of the fire, praising Elohim, kneeling to the Adonai [YHVH].
This is probably a man-made work of fiction, but it is lovely, and it expresses wholly biblical themes.
2 Then AzariYah stands up, and prays, (opening his mouth in the middle of the fire:)
3 "[I] kneel [beneath] you, O Adonai [YHVH] Elohim of our fathers: your name is worthy to be praised and glorified for evermore:
4 Everything you've ever done to us has been righteous. Yes, all your actions are reliable, your ways are right, and all your judgments truthful.
5 In all the [punishments] you've brought on us, and on the holy city of our fathers, Jerusalem, you've executed flawless judgment. Judging by the facts, you sent all these [disasters] on us, [to wake us up from] our sins.
6 For we've [repeatedly] sinned and committed acts of unfairness, departing from you.
7 We trespassed and disobeyed your commandments in everything we did. We failed to guard your [laws.] We [ignored everything you] commanded us, even though your laws are for our own good!
This needs to be prayed in modern churches, because it's true.
8 So all [the pain] you brought upon us, and everything that you have done to us, you did in flawless justice.
9 You delivered us into the fists of lawless enemies, most hateful forsakers of [you,] Elohim, to an unjust king, the most wicked [tyrant] in all the world.
10 Now we can't open our mouths [to defend ourselves.] We've become a shame, an insult to your servants; and to all who worship you.
11 Yet please don't irrevocably surrender us. For your own reputation, don't annul your covenant [with us.]
12 Don't let your mercy depart from us. [Keep the promise you made to] your beloved Abraham {Father-Of-Billions}, [and to] your servant Issac. [Don't exterminate] your holy people [who you said could rule with you one day.]
Israel = those who will rule with EL.
13 [Save us, to whom] you spoke and promised, that you would multiply [our] seed-children like the stars of heaven, like the sand lying on the seashore.
14 For we, Adonai [YHVH], have [dwindled] to less than [the most insignificant] beast-nation. We're kept down all over the world today, because of our sins.
15 We now have no prince, or prophet, or leader, or ascension-feast, or [animals to] slaughter, or qurban [present to offer you], or incense, or place to [hold sacred feasts] before you, and to find mercy.
16 But please accept our repentant heart[s] and humble spirit[s].
17 Like the ascending [smoke-roast] of rams and young bulls and 10 thousand fat lambs [donated for a sacred feast], accept our [outpouring of praise] in your sight today. Grant [us the power to] wholly follow you. For no one who puts their trust in you'll remain confounded.
18 From now [on] we follow you with all our heart; we fear you, and seek your face.
19 Don't put us to shame. Deal with us with your loving-kindness, lavishing on us your endless mercies.
20 And rescue us with your marvelous miracles, to give glory to your name, Adonai [YHVH], so shame [fills] everyone who hurts your servants.
21 Trap everyone [who hurts your people] in their own power and might. Break their strength.
22 And let [our persecutors] know that you are Elohim, the only Eloah, glorious over the whole world.”
The Babylonian Torturers Heat The Fire To Melt Steel
23 [As the 3 young Hebrews pray,] the king's servants, who threw [AzariYah and his friends] in the fire, keep on making the oven hotter, [throwing in] rosin, pitch, rope, and fire-wood.
The Fire Kills The Torturers
24 So that the flame shoots up, 49 cubits [73 feet] above the furnace.
25 [The flame] passes through [the furnace openings] and burns every Chaldean it finds near the furnace.
YAH's Supernatural Fire-Fighter Protects The Hebrews
26 But the angel of Adonai [YHVH] descends into the oven, and joins AzariYah and his fellows, and swats the flames of the fire out of the oven.
Possibly the Messiah coming back through a time-portal.
27 [Then Yah] makes a moist whistling wind [rush] out of the middle of the furnace, so the fire doesn't touch [AzariYah and his friends] at all. It doesn't hurt even bother them!
The 3 Young Men Praise Their Creator As One
28 Then, in the furnace, the 3 [young men] kneel to Elohim, and as one voice, praise, glorify [Him]:
29 "[We] kneel [beneath] you, O Adonai [YHVH,] Elohim of our fathers. [Angels will] praise and exalt [you] above all forever.

66 AnaniYah, AzariYah, and MisaEL, kneel [beneath] the Adonai. Praise and exalt him above all for ever. For he's delivered us from the grave. [He's] saved us from the fist of death. [He] rescued us out of the middle of the furnace's burning flame. He snatched us right out of the middle of the fire!
The 3 Young Men Speak To You
67 [So] give thanks to the Adonai, because he is gracious: for his mercy [lasts] forever.
68 All you who worship the Adonai [YHVH], kneel to the Eloah over [all] Elohim. Praise him, and thank him, because his mercy [lasts] forever.”
