This one is nice and easy. I played a little fast and loose with extrahi. “Lifted out” is not a strictly literal translation of the verb, but it’s close and it captions the illustration more accurately.

The king, seeing Daniel protected by the God of Israel amidst the lions, orders that he be lifted out.

We’re getting close to the end of Bel and the Dragon. This illustrates Daniel 14:39-40.
