Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:5 - The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The command is gone forth from me: If ye do not make known unto me the dream, and its interpretation, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:9 - but if ye do not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree 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 shew me its interpretation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:10 - The Chaldeans answered before the king and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter; therefore there is no king, however great and powerful, that hath asked such a thing of any scribe, or magician, or Chaldean.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:12 - For this cause the king was irritated and very wroth, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:14 - Then Daniel answered with counsel and prudence to Arioch the chief of the king's bodyguard, who had gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:15 - he answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so rigorous from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:16 - And Daniel went in, and requested of the king that he would give him time, that he might shew the king the interpretation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:17 - Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions;

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:18 - that they would desire mercies of the God of the heavens 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 night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of the heavens.

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 it is he that changeth times and seasons; He deposeth kings, and setteth up kings; He giveth wisdom to the wise, And knowledge to them that know understanding.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:22 - It is he that 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 I praise thee, O God of my fathers, Who hast given me wisdom and might, And hast made known unto me already what we desired of thee; For thou hast made known unto us the king's matter.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:24 - Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wise men of Babylon; he went and said thus unto him: Destroy not the wise men of Babylon; bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:28 - but there is a God in the heavens, who revealeth secrets, and maketh known to king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be at the end of 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 arose 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 - And as for me, this secret is revealed to me, not by any wisdom that I have more than any living, but to the intent that the interpretation should be made known to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:31 - Thou, O king, sawest, and behold, a great image. This image was mighty and its brightness excellent; it stood before thee, and its appearance was terrible.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:32 - This image's head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:34 - Thou sawest till a stone was cut out without hands; and it smote the image upon its feet of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:35 - Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken in pieces together, and they became like the chaff of the summer threshing-floors; and the wind carried them away, and no place was found for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:39 - And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee; then 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 everything, and as iron that breaketh all these, so shall it break in pieces and bruise.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 2:41 - And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potter's clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; 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, the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.

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 these kings shall the God of the heavens set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the sovereignty thereof shall not be left to another people: it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, but itself 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 broke 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 of it sure.
