Susanna and the Elders is a Biblical story described in Daniel, Chapter 13. Susanna is a victorious and beautiful woman who refused the lascivious demands of the two unscrupulous elders. The elders attempted to force her into it stating that If she didn't, they would testify that they observer her in the act of adultery. Susanna would not sin. In court with the help of Daniel, Susanna was saved and the elders suffered the same fate the court would have metered out to Susanna, death.
