Nebuchadnezzar asked them, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, is it true that you don’t serve my gods or worship the gold statue I have set up? Now if you’re ready, when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, drum, and every kind of music, fall down and worship the statue I made. But if you don’t worship it, you will immediately be thrown into a furnace of blazing fire—and who is the god who can rescue you from my power?” – Daniel 3:14-15 <HCSB>

  

 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego Summary

After Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah, he took captive several youths and deported them back to Babylon to serve in his government. Among these were Daniel and his three friends, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego). They first refused to defile themselves with the king’s food and successfully negotiated an alternative. Daniel also mentions that God blessed all four with wisdom that far surpassed the rest of the king’s advisors.

Nebuchadnezzar then decided to build a giant golden statue and ordered everyone to bow and worship it. If anyone refused, they were to be thrown into a fiery furnace. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego boldly professed faith in God’s ability to protect them. Whether the king tossed them in the fire or not, they would not bow. Nebuchadnezzar was angry and ordered them into the fire after heating it seven times hotter. But to his amazement, there were now four people in the fire, walking around unharmed. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were ordered out and examined by the king’s servants. They were not singed and did not even smell like smoke. Nebuchadnezzar decreed that anyone who spoke against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would be killed, because “…there is no other God who is able to deliver in this way.” (Daniel 3:29)

Nebuchadnezzar then approached the door of the furnace of blazing fire and called: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, you servants of the Most High God—come out!” So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire. When the satraps, prefects, governors, and the king’s advisers gathered around, they saw that the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men: not a hair of their heads was singed, their robes were unaffected, and there was no smell of fire on them. Nebuchadnezzar exclaimed, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent His angel and rescued His servants who trusted in Him. They violated the king’s command and risked their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.” – Daniel 3:26-28 <HCSB>

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – Key Events In Their Lives

Daniel 1 – Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego taken captive.

Daniel 2 – Daniel interprets the king’s dream and promotes his friends.

Daniel 3 – The Hebrew boys refuse to bow or burn.

Why Didn’t The Hebrew Boys Burn?
We don’t know a lot about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, but what we do know is that they loved God and continually put their faith in Him. They refused the food offered them and we are told that God had given them greater wisdom than their peers. Wisdom comes from spending time with God and His Word, so they obviously were familiar with God’s miracles and promises throughout the Old Testament.

The reason they could confidently refuse to bow is that they knew God would deliver them. They could see their deliverance by faith. They knew God’s Word including Isaiah 43:1-7 where God promises to bring His people safely through water and fire.
