1 H1113 Belshazzar H4430 the king H5648 [H8754] made H7229 a great H3900 feast H506 to a thousand H7261 of his lords, H8355 [H8750] and drank H2562 wine H6903 before H506 the thousand.
2 H1113 Belshazzar, H2942 while he tasted H2562 the wine, H560 [H8754] commanded H858 [H8682] to bring H1722 the golden H3702 and silver H3984 vessels H2 which his father H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H5312 [H8684] had taken H4481 out of H1965 the temple H3390 which was in Jerusalem; H4430 that the king, H7261 and his princes, H7695 his consorts, H3904 and his concubines, H8355 [H8748] might drink in them.
3 H116 Then H858 [H8684] they brought H1722 the golden H3984 vessels H5312 [H8684] that were taken H4481 out of H1965 the temple H1005 of the house H426 of God H3390 which was at Jerusalem; H4430 and the king, H7261 and his princes, H7695 his consorts, H3904 and his concubines, H8355 [H8754] drank in them.
4 H8355 [H8754] They drank H2562 wine, H7624 [H8745] and praised H426 the gods H1722 of gold, H3702 and of silver, H5174 of brass, H6523 of iron, H636 of wood, H69 and of stone.
5 H8160 In the same hour H5312 [H8754] came forth H677 fingers H606 of a man's H3028 hand, H3790 [H8751] and wrote H6903 opposite H5043 the lampstand H5922 upon H1528 the plaster H3797 of the wall H4430 of the king's H1965 palace: H4430 and the king H2370 [H8751] saw H6447 the part H3028 of the hand H3790 [H8751] that wrote.
6 H116 Then H4430 the king's H2122 countenance H8133 [H8754] was changed, H7476 and his thoughts H927 [H8792] troubled H7001 him, so that the joints H2783 of his loins H8271 [H8723] were loosed, H755 and his knees H5368 [H8750] smote H1668 one H1668 against another.
7 H4430 The king H7123 [H8748] called H2429 aloud H5954 [H8682] to bring H826 in the astrologers, H3779 the Chaldeans, H1505 [H8750] and the soothsayers. H4430 And the king H6032 [H8750] spoke, H560 [H8750] and said H2445 to the wise H895 men of Babylon, H606 H3606 Whoever H7123 [H8751] shall read H1836 this H3792 writing, H2324 [H8741] and show H6591 me the interpretation H3848 [H8748] of it, shall be clothed H711 with scarlet, H2002 and have a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 his neck, H8523 and shall be the third H7981 [H8748] ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
8 H116 Then H5954 [H8750] came H3606 in all H4430 the king's H2445 wise H3546 [H8751] men: but they could H3809 not H7123 [H8749] read H3792 the writing, H3046 [H8682] nor make known H4430 to the king H6591 the interpretation of it.
9 H116 Then H4430 was the king H1113 Belshazzar H7690 greatly H927 [H8727] troubled, H2122 and his countenance H8133 [H8750] was changed H5922 in him, H7261 and his lords H7672 [H8723] were confused.
10 H4433 Now the queen, H6903 by reason H4406 of the words H4430 of the king H7261 and his lords, H5954 [H8754] came H4961 into the banquet H1005 house: H4433 and the queen H6032 [H8754] spoke H560 [H8754] and said, H4430 O king, H2418 [H8747] live H5957 for ever: H409 let not H7476 thy thoughts H927 [H8792] trouble H2122 thee, nor let thy countenance H8133 [H8721] be changed:
11 H383 There is H1400 a man H4437 in thy kingdom, H7308 in whom is the spirit H6922 of the holy H426 gods; H3118 and in the days H2 of thy father H5094 light H7924 and understanding H2452 and wisdom, H2452 like the wisdom H426 of the gods, H7912 [H8728] was found H4430 in him; whom the king H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H2 thy father, H4430 the king, H2 I say, thy father, H6966 [H8684] made H7229 master H2749 of the magicians, H826 astrologers, H3779 Chaldeans, H1505 [H8750] and soothsayers;
12 H6903 H3606 Forasmuch as H3493 an excellent H7308 spirit, H4486 and knowledge, H7924 and understanding, H6590 [H8743] the interpreting H2493 of dreams, H263 and declaring H280 of hard sentences, H8271 [H8743] and dissolving H7001 of doubts, H7912 [H8728] were found H1841 in the same Daniel, H4430 whom the king H7761 H8036 [H8754] named H1096 Belteshazzar: H3705 now H1841 let Daniel H7123 [H8729] be called, H2324 [H8681] and he will show H6591 the interpretation.
13 H116 Then H1841 was Daniel H5954 [H8717] brought in H6925 before H4430 the king. H4430 And the king H6032 [H8750] spoke H560 [H8750] and said H1841 to Daniel, H607 Art thou H1841 that Daniel, H4481 who art of H1123 the children H1547 of the captivity H3061 of Judah, H4430 whom the king H2 my father H858 [H8684] brought H4481 out of H3061 Judah?
14 H8086 [H8754] I have even heard H7308 of thee, that the spirit H426 of the gods H5922 is in thee, H5094 and that light H7924 and understanding H3493 and excellent H2452 wisdom H7912 [H8728] is found in thee.
15 H3705 And now H2445 the wise H826 men, the astrologers, H5954 [H8717] have been brought H6925 in before H7123 [H8748] me, that they should read H1836 this H3792 writing, H3046 [H8682] and make known H6591 to me the interpretation H3546 [H8751] of it: but they could H3809 not H2324 [H8682] show H6591 the interpretation H4406 of the thing:
16 H576 And I H8086 [H8754] have heard H5922 of thee, H3202 [H8748] that thou canst H6590 [H8749] make H6591 interpretations, H8271 [H8749] and dissolve H7001 doubts: H3705 now H2006 if H3202 [H8748] thou canst H7123 [H8749] read H3792 the writing, H3046 [H8682] and make known H6591 to me the interpretation H3848 [H8748] of it, thou shalt be clothed H711 with scarlet, H2002 and have a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 thy neck, H8531 and shalt be the third H7981 [H8748] ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
17 H116 Then H1841 Daniel H6032 [H8750] answered H560 [H8750] and said H6925 before H4430 the king, H4978 Let thy gifts H1934 [H8748] be H3052 [H8747] to thyself, and give H5023 thy rewards H321 to another; H1297 yet H7123 [H8748] I will read H3792 the writing H4430 to the king, H3046 [H8681] and make known H6591 to him the interpretation.
18 H607 O thou H4430 king, H5943 the most high H426 God H3052 [H8754] gave H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H2 thy father H4437 a kingdom, H7238 and majesty, H3367 and glory, H1923 and honour:
19 H4481 And for H7238 the majesty H3052 [H8754] that he gave H3606 him, all H5972 people, H524 nations, H3961 and languages, H1934 H2112 [H8754] trembled H1763 [H8751] and feared H4481 before H6925 him: H1934 H6634 [H8754] whom he would H1934 H6992 [H8754] he slew; H1934 H6634 [H8754] and whom he would H1934 H2418 [H8754] he kept alive; H1934 H6634 [H8754] and whom he would H1934 H7313 [H8754] he set up; H1934 H6634 [H8754] and whom he would H1934 H8214 [H8754] he put down.
20 H3825 But when his heart H7313 [H8752] was lifted up, H7308 and his mind H8631 [H8748] hardened H2103 [H8682] in pride, H5182 [H8717] he was deposed H4481 from H4437 his kingly H3764 throne, H5709 [H8684] and they took H3367 his glory H4481 from him:
21 H2957 [H8752] And he was driven H4481 from H1123 the sons H606 of men; H3825 and his heart H7739 [H8745] was made H5974 like H2423 the beasts, H4070 and his dwelling H6167 was with the wild donkeys: H2939 [H8748] they fed H6211 him with grass H8450 like oxen, H1655 and his body H6647 [H8721] was wet H2920 with the dew H8065 of heaven; H5705 till H3046 [H8754] he knew H5943 that the most high H426 God H7990 ruleth H4437 in the kingdom H606 of men, H6966 [H8681] and that he appointeth H5922 over H4479 it whomever H6634 [H8748] he will.
22 H607 And thou H1247 his son, H1113 O Belshazzar, H3809 hast not H8214 [H8684] humbled H3825 thy heart, H6903 though H3046 [H8754] thou knewest H3606 all H1836 this;
23 H7313 [H8712] But hast lifted up H5922 thyself against H4756 the Lord H8065 of heaven; H858 [H8684] and they have brought H3984 the vessels H1005 of his house H6925 before H607 thee, and thou, H7261 and thy lords, H7695 thy consorts, H3904 and thy concubines, H8355 [H8750] have drunk H2562 wine H7624 [H8745] in them; and thou hast praised H426 the gods H3702 of silver, H1722 and gold, H5174 of brass, H6523 iron, H636 wood, H69 and stone, H2370 [H8751] which see H3809 not, H3809 nor H8086 [H8750] hear, H3809 nor H3046 [H8751] know: H426 and the God H3028 in whose hand H5396 thy breath H3606 is, and whose are all H735 thy ways, H3809 thou hast not H1922 [H8745] glorified:
24 H116 Then H6447 was the part H3028 of the hand H7972 [H8750] sent H4481 from H6925 him; H1836 and this H3792 writing H7560 [H8752] was written.
25 H1836 And this H3792 is the writing H7560 [H8752] that was written, H4484 [H8752] MENE, H4484 [H8752] MENE, H8625 [H8752] TEKEL, H6537 [H8751] UPHARSIN.
26 H1836 This H6591 is the interpretation H4406 of the thing: H4484 [H8752] MENE; H426 God H4483 [H8754] hath numbered H4437 thy kingdom, H8000 [H8684] and finished it.
27 H8625 [H8752] TEKEL; H8625 [H8760] Thou art weighed H3977 in the balances, H7912 [H8728] and art found H2627 wanting.
28 H6537 [H8752] PERES; H4437 Thy kingdom H6537 [H8752] is divided, H3052 [H8753] and given H4076 to the Medes H6540 and Persians.
29 H116 Then H560 [H8754] commanded H1113 Belshazzar, H3848 [H8684] and they clothed H1841 Daniel H711 with scarlet, H2002 and put a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 his neck, H3745 [H8684] and made a proclamation H5922 concerning H1934 [H8748] him, that he should be H8531 the third H7990 ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
30 H3916 In that night H1113 was Belshazzar H4430 the king H3779 of the Chaldeans H6992 [H8752] slain.
