requesting exemption

Daniel 1


But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Here's an excellent example of standing firm for what's right, but still meekly entreating your authorities. Daniel was still determined to not do what he knew was wrong, but he wasn't belligerent. We should be meek, but firm, like that.
