'I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.'
Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, 'Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.'
