Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:9 - But if ye make not known unto me the dream, there is but one law for you; for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can show me the interpretation thereof.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:10 - The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can show the king’s matter, forasmuch as no king, lord, or ruler, hath asked such a thing of any magician, or enchanter, or Chaldean.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:13 - So the decree went forth, and the wise men were to be slain; and they sought Daniel and his companions to be slain.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:14 - Then Daniel returned answer with counsel and prudence to Arioch the captain of the king’s guard, who was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon;

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:18 - that they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:19 - Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a vision of the night. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:20 - Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever; for wisdom and might are his.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:21 - And he changeth the times and the seasons; he removeth kings, and setteth up kings; he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that have understanding;

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:22 - he revealeth the deep and secret things; he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:23 - I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast now made known unto me what we desired of thee; for thou hast made known unto us the king’s matter.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:28 - but there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and he hath made known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these:

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:29 - as for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter; and he that revealeth secrets hath made known to thee what shall come to pass.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:30 - But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but to the intent that the interpretation may be made known to the king, and that thou mayest know the thoughts of thy heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:31 - Thou, O king, sawest, and, behold, a great image. This image, which was mighty, and whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the aspect thereof was terrible.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:32 - As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:33 - its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:34 - Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon its feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:35 - Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing-floors; and the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:36 - This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:39 - And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee; and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:40 - And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things; and as iron that crusheth all these, shall it break in pieces and crush.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:41 - And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:42 - And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:43 - And whereas thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron doth not mingle with clay.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:44 - And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall the sovereignty thereof be left to another people; but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:45 - Forasmuch as thou sawest that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
