Daniel considered his body the Temple of the Holy Spirit,
thus refused to defile it with foods or drink not ordained by God.
He believed pulse & water ordained as health-building.
The test Daniel requested proved he & his 3 friends
were TEN TIMES WISER & HEALTIER
than any of the magicians, wizards and astrologers in the whole kingdom.
The following is an account from the Bible Book of Daniel 1: 3-20 (circa 607 B.C.)
"The king (Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia) ordered Ashpenaz, his chief official, to select from among the Israelite prisoners seized from Jerusalem, some young men of the royal family and of the noble families. They had to be handsome, free from physical defects, intelligent, skilled in all wisdom, cunning in knowledge, understanding science, and quick to learn; so that they would be qualified to serve in the royal court. Ashpenaz was to teach them to read and write the Babylonian Chaldeans language. The king also gave orders that every day they were to be given the same food and wine as the members of the royal court. After three years of this training they were to appear before the king. Among those chosen were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, all of whom were from the tribe of Judah. The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel he gave the name Belteshazzar, to Hananiah the name Shadrach, to Mishael the name Meshach, and to Azariah the name Abednego.
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself by eating the food and drinking the wine of the royal court. He asked Ashpenaz to help him so he would not be defiled, and God made Ashpenaz sympathetic to Daniel. However, Aspenaz was afraid of the king, so he said to Daniel: "The king has decided what you are to eat and drink, and if you don't look as fit as the other young men, he may kill me."
So Daniel went to the guard Melzar whom Ashpenaz had placed in charge of him and his three friends, saying:. "Test us for ten days. Give us pulse to eat and water to drink. Then compare us with the young men who are eating the food of the royal court, and base your decision of how we look."
He agreed to let them try it for ten days. At the end of ten days, they looked healthier and stronger than all those who had been eating the royal food. So from then on the guard let them continue to eat pulse and drink water.
God gave the four young men knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom. In addition, God gave Daniel skill in interpreting visions and dreams.
At the end of the three years set by the king, Aspenaz took all the young men to Nebucahdnezzar. The king talked with them all and Daniel-Belteshazzar, Hananiah-Shadrach, Mishael-Meshach, and Azariah-Abednego impressed him more than any of the others. So they became members of the king's court. No matter what question he raised, these four knew ten times more than any of his magicians, wizards and astrologers in his whole kingdom."
