1 H8147 In the second H8141 year H4438 of the reign H5019 of Nebuchadnezzar, H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H2492 dreamed H2472 dreams; H7307 and his spirit H6470 was troubled, H8142 and his sleep H1961 went from him.
2 H4428 Then the king H559 commanded H7121 to call H2748 the magicians, H825 and the enchanters, H3784 and the sorcerers, H3778 and the Chaldeans, H5046 to tell H4428 the king H2472 his dreams. H935 So they came H5975 in and stood H6440 before H4428 the king.
3 H4428 The king H559 said H2492 to them, I have dreamed H2472 a dream, H7307 and my spirit H6470 is troubled H3045 to know H2472 the dream.
4 H1696 Then spoke H3778 the Chaldeans H4428 to the king H762 in the Syrian language, H4430 O king, H2418 live H5957 forever: H560 tell H5649 your servants H2493 the dream, H2324 and we will show H6591 the interpretation.
5 H4430 The king H6032 answered H3779 the Chaldeans, H4406 The thing H230 is gone H4481 from me: H2006 if H3809 you don't H3046 make known H2493 to me the dream H6591 and its interpretation, H5648 you shall be cut H1917 in pieces, H1005 and your houses H7761 shall be made H5122 a dunghill.
6 H2006 But if H2324 you show H2493 the dream H6591 and its interpretation, H6902 you shall receive H4481 of H6925 me H4978 gifts H5023 and rewards H7690 and great H3367 honor: H3861 therefore H2324 show H2493 me the dream H6591 and its interpretation.
7 H6032 They answered H8579 the second H560 time and said, H4430 Let the king H560 tell H5649 his servants H2493 the dream, H2324 and we will show H6591 the interpretation.
8 H4430 The king H6032 answered, H576 I H3046 know H4481 of H3330 a certainty H608 that you H2084 would gain H5732 time, H6903 because H2370 you see H4406 the thing H230 is gone H4481 from me.
9 H2006 But if H3809 you don't H3046 make known H2493 to me the dream, H1932 there is but one H1882 law H2164 for you; for you have prepared H3538 lying H7844 and corrupt H4406 words H560 to speak H6925 before H5705 me, until H5732 the time H8133 be changed: H3861 therefore H560 tell H2493 me the dream, H3046 and I shall know H1768 that H2324 you can show H6591 me its interpretation.
10 H3779 The Chaldeans H6032 answered H6925 before H4430 the king, H560 and said, H383 There is H3809 not H606 a man H5922 on H3007 the earth H3202 who can H2324 show H4430 the king's H4406 matter, H6903 because H3809 no H4430 king, H7229 lord, H7990 or ruler, H7593 has asked H1836 such H4406 a thing H3606 of any H2749 magician, H826 or enchanter, H3779 or Chaldean.
11 H3358 It is a rare H4406 thing H4430 that the king H7593 requires, H383 and there is H3809 no H321 other H2324 who can show H6925 it before H4430 the king, H3861 except H426 the gods, H4070 whose dwelling H383 is H3809 not H5974 with H1321 flesh.
12 H6903 For H1836 this H3606 cause H4430 the king H1149 was angry H7690 and very H7108 furious, H560 and commanded H7 to destroy H3606 all H2445 the wise H895 men of Babylon.
13 H1882 So the decree H5312 went forth, H2445 and the wise H6992 men were to be slain; H1156 and they sought H1841 Daniel H2269 and his companions H6992 to be slain.
14 H116 Then H1841 Daniel H8421 returned answer H5843 with counsel H2942 and prudence H746 to Arioch H7229 the captain H1768 of H4430 the king's H2877 guard, H5312 who was gone forth H6992 to kill H2445 the wise H895 men of Babylon;
15 H6032 he answered H746 Arioch H4430 the king's H7990 captain, H4101 Why H1882 is the decree H2685 so urgent H4481 from H4430 the king? H116 Then H746 Arioch H4406 made the thing H3046 known H1841 to Daniel.
16 H1841 Daniel H5954 went in, H1156 and desired H4481 of H4430 the king H5415 that he would appoint H2166 him a time, H2324 and he would show H4430 the king H6591 the interpretation.
17 H116 Then H1841 Daniel H236 went H1005 to his house, H4406 and made the thing H3046 known H2608 to Hananiah, H4333 Mishael, H5839 and Azariah, H2269 his companions:
18 H1156 that they would desire H7359 mercies H4481 of H426 the God H8065 of heaven H5922 concerning H1836 this H7328 secret; H1841 that Daniel H2269 and his companions H3809 should not H7 perish H5974 with H7606 the rest H2445 of the wise H895 men of Babylon.
19 H116 Then H7328 was the secret H1541 revealed H1841 to Daniel H2376 in a vision H3916 of the night. H116 Then H1841 Daniel H1289 blessed H426 the God H8065 of heaven.
20 H1841 Daniel H6032 answered, H1289 Blessed H1934 be H8036 the name H426 of God H5705 forever H5957 and ever; H4481 for H2452 wisdom H1370 and might H1932 are his.
21 H8133 He changes H5732 the times H2166 and the seasons; H5709 he removes H4430 kings, H6966 and sets up H4430 kings; H3052 he gives H2452 wisdom H2445 to the wise, H4486 and knowledge H3046 to those who have H999 understanding;
22 H1541 he reveals H5994 the deep H5642 and secret things; H3046 he knows H4101 what H2816 is in the darkness, H5094 and the light H8271 dwells H5974 with him.
23 H576 I H3029 thank H7624 you, and praise H426 you, you God H2 of my fathers, H3052 who have given H2452 me wisdom H1370 and might, H3705 and have now H3046 made known H1156 to me what we desired H4481 of you; H3046 for you have made known H4430 to us the king's H4406 matter.
24 H6903 Therefore H1841 Daniel H5954 went in H5922 to H746 Arioch, H4430 whom the king H4483 had appointed H7 to destroy H2445 the wise H895 men of Babylon; H236 he went H560 and said H3652 thus H409 to him: Don't H7 destroy H2445 the wise H895 men of Babylon; H5954 bring me in H6925 before H4430 the king, H2324 and I will show H4430 to the king H6591 the interpretation.
25 H116 Then H746 Arioch H5954 brought in H1841 Daniel H6925 before H4430 the king H927 in haste, H560 and said H3652 thus H7912 to him, I have found H1400 a man H1123 of the children of the captivity H4481 of H3061 Judah, H3046 who will make known H4430 to the king H6591 the interpretation.
26 H4430 The king H6032 answered H1841 Daniel, H8036 whose name H1096 was Belteshazzar, H383 Are H3546 you able H3046 to make known H2493 to me the dream H2370 which I have seen, H6591 and its interpretation?
27 H1841 Daniel H6032 answered H6925 before H4430 the king, H560 and said, H7328 The secret H4430 which the king H7593 has demanded H3202 can neither H2445 wise H826 men, enchanters, H2749 magicians, H1505 nor soothsayers, H2324 show H4430 to the king;
28 H1297 but H383 there is H426 a God H8065 in heaven H1541 who reveals H7328 secrets, H3046 and he has made known H4430 to the king H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H4101 what H1934 shall be H320 in the latter H3118 days. H2493 Your dream, H2376 and the visions H7217 of your head H5922 on H4903 your bed, H1836 are these:
29 H607 as for you, H4430 O king, H7476 your thoughts H5559 came H5922 into your mind on H4903 your bed, H4101 what H1934 should happen H311 hereafter; H1541 and he who reveals H7328 secrets H3046 has made known H4101 to you what H1934 shall happen.
30 H576 But as for me, H1836 this H7328 secret H3809 is not H1541 revealed H576 to me H2452 for any wisdom H383 that I have H4481 more than H3606 any H2417 living, H3861 but H5922 to the intent that H6591 the interpretation H3046 may be made known H4430 to the king, H3046 and that you may know H7476 the thoughts H3825 of your heart.
31 H607 You, H4430 O king, H1934 saw, H431 and behold, H2298 a great H6755 image. H1797 This H6755 image, H7229 which was mighty, H2122 and whose brightness H3493 was excellent, H6966 stood H6903 before H7299 you; and its aspect H1763 was awesome.
32 H6755 As for this image, H7217 its head H2869 was of fine H1722 gold, H2306 its breast H1872 and its arms H3702 of silver, H4577 its belly H3410 and its thighs H5174 of brass,
33 H8243 its legs H6523 of iron, H7271 its feet H4481 part H6523 of iron, H4481 and part H2635 of clay.
34 H2370 You saw H5705 until H69 a stone H1505 was cut out H3809 without H3028 hands, H4223 which struck H6755 the image H5922 on H7271 its feet H6523 that were of iron H2635 and clay, H1855 and broke H1994 them H1855 in pieces.
35 H116 Then H6523 was the iron, H2635 the clay, H5174 the brass, H3702 the silver, H1722 and the gold, H1855 broken in pieces H2298 together, H1934 and became H5784 like the chaff H4481 of H7007 the summer H147 threshing floors; H7308 and the wind H5376 carried H1994 them H5376 away, H3606 so that H3809 no H870 place H7912 was found H69 for them: and the stone H4223 that struck H6755 the image H1934 became H7229 a great H2906 mountain, H4391 and filled H3606 the whole H772 earth.
36 H1836 This H2493 is the dream; H560 and we will tell H6591 its interpretation H6925 before H4430 the king.
37 H607 You, H4430 O king, H4430 are king H4430 of kings, H426 to whom the God H8065 of heaven H3052 has given H4437 the kingdom, H2632 the power, H8632 and the strength, H3367 and the glory;
38 H3606 and wherever H1123 the children H606 of men H1753 dwell, H2423 the animals H1251 of the field H5776 and the birds H8065 of the sky H3052 has he given H3028 into your hand, H7981 and has made you to rule H3606 over them all: H607 you H7217 are the head H1722 of gold.
39 H870 After H6966 you shall arise H317 another H4437 kingdom H772 inferior H4481 to you; H317 and another H8523 third H4437 kingdom H5174 of brass, H7981 which shall bear rule H3606 over all H772 the earth.
40 H7244 The fourth H4437 kingdom H1934 shall be H8624 strong H6523 as iron, H6523 because iron H1855 breaks in pieces H2827 and subdues H3606 all H6903 things; and as H6523 iron H7490 that crushes H3606 all H459 these, H1855 shall it break in pieces H7490 and crush.
41 H2370 Whereas you saw H7271 the feet H677 and toes, H4481 part H6353 of potters' H2635 clay, H4481 and part H6523 of iron, H1934 it shall be H6386 a divided H4437 kingdom; H4481 but H1934 there shall be H4481 in it of H5326 the strength H4481 of H6523 the iron, H2370 because you saw H6523 the iron H6151 mixed H2917 with miry H2635 clay.
42 H677 As the toes H7271 of the feet H4481 were part H6523 of iron, H4481 and part H2635 of clay, H4437 so the kingdom H1934 shall be H4481 partly H8624 strong, H4481 and partly H8406 broken.
43 H1768 Whereas H2370 you saw H6523 the iron H6151 mixed H2917 with miry H2635 clay, H1934 they shall mingle themselves H2234 with the seed H606 of men; H1934 but they shall H3809 not H1693 cling H5974 to H1836 one H1836 another, H1888 even H6523 as iron H3809 does not H6151 mingle H2635 with clay.
44 H3118 In the days H581 of those H4430 kings H426 shall the God H8065 of heaven H6966 set up H4437 a kingdom H5957 which shall never H2255 be destroyed, H3809 nor H4437 shall its sovereignty H7662 be left H321 to another H5972 people; H1855 but it shall break in pieces H5487 and consume H3606 all H459 these H4437 kingdoms, H1932 and it H6966 shall stand H5957 forever.
45 H3606 Because H2370 you saw H69 that a stone H1505 was cut out H2906 of the mountain H3809 without H3028 hands, H1855 and that it broke in pieces H6523 the iron, H5174 the brass, H2635 the clay, H3702 the silver, H1722 and the gold; H7229 the great H426 God H3046 has made known H4430 to the king H4101 what H1934 shall happen H311 hereafter: H2493 and the dream H3330 is certain, H6591 and its interpretation H540 sure.
46 H116 Then H4430 the king H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H5308 fell H5922 on H600 his face, H5457 and worshiped H1841 Daniel, H560 and commanded H5260 that they should offer H4504 an offering H5208 and sweet odors to him.
47 H4430 The king H6032 answered H1841 to Daniel, H560 and said, H4481 Of H7187 a truth H1768 your H426 God H426 is the God H426 of gods, H4756 and the Lord H4430 of kings, H1541 and a revealer H7328 of secrets, H3202 since you have been able to H1541 reveal H1836 this H7328 secret.
48 H116 Then H4430 the king H7236 made H1841 Daniel H7260 great, H3052 and gave H7236 him many H7260 great H4978 gifts, H7981 and made him to rule H5922 over H3606 the whole H4083 province H895 of Babylon, H7229 and to be chief H5460 governor H5922 over H3606 all H2445 the wise H895 men of Babylon.
