Daniel 2 Text (WEB)
  1. In the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams; and his spirit was troubled, and his sleep went from him.
  2. Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the enchanters, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king.
  3. The king said to them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream.
  4. Then spoke the Chaldeans to the king in the Syrian language, O king, live forever: tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.
  5. The king answered the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if you don't make known to me the dream and its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
  6. But if you show the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honor: therefore show me the dream and its interpretation.
  7. They answered the second time and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.
  8. The king answered, I know of a certainty that you would gain time, because you see the thing is gone from me.
  9. But if you don't make known to me the dream, there is but one law for you; for you have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, until the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me its interpretation.
  10. The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man on the earth who can show the king's matter, because no king, lord, or ruler, has asked such a thing of any magician, or enchanter, or Chaldean.
  11. It is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is no other who can show it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
  12. For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
  13. So the decree went forth, and the wise men were to be slain; and they sought Daniel and his companions to be slain.
  14. Then Daniel returned answer with counsel and prudence to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, who was gone forth to kill the wise men of Babylon;
  15. he answered Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so urgent from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
  16. Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would appoint him a time, and he would show the king the interpretation.
  17. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
  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.
  19. Then was the secret revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
  20. Daniel answered, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever; for wisdom and might are his.
  21. He changes the times and the seasons; he removes kings, and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to those who have understanding;
  22. he reveals the deep and secret things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.
  23. I thank you, and praise you, you God of my fathers, who have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we desired of you; for you have made known to us the king's matter.
  24. Therefore Daniel went in to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wise men of Babylon; he went and said thus to him: Don't destroy the wise men of Babylon; bring me in before the king, and I will show to the king the interpretation.
  25. Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus to him, I have found a man of the children of the captivity of Judah, who will make known to the king the interpretation.
  26. The king answered Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen, and its interpretation?
  27. Daniel answered before the king, and said, The secret which the king has demanded can neither wise men, enchanters, magicians, nor soothsayers, show to the king;
  28. but there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has made known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head on your bed, are these:
  29. as for you, O king, your thoughts came [into your mind] on your bed, what should happen hereafter; and he who reveals secrets has made known to you what shall happen.
  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 you may know the thoughts of your heart.
  31. You, O king, saw, and behold, a great image. This image, which was mighty, and whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and its aspect was awesome.
  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,
  33. its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay.
  34. You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.
  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 struck the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
  36. This is the dream; and we will tell its interpretation before the king.
  37. You, O king, are king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, and the strength, and the glory;
  38. and wherever the children of men dwell, the animals of the field and the birds of the sky has he given into your hand, and has made you to rule over them all: you are the head of gold.
  39. After you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you; and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
  40. The fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, because iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things; and as iron that crushes all these, shall it break in pieces and crush.
  41. Whereas you saw 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, because you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.
  42. As the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
  43. Whereas you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not cling to one another, even as iron does not mingle with clay.
  44. In the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty be left to another people; but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
  45. Because you saw 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 has made known to the king what shall happen hereafter: and the dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.
  46. Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, and worshiped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an offering and sweet odors to him.
  47. The king answered to Daniel, and said, Of a truth your God is the God of gods, and the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you have been able to reveal this secret.
  48. Then the king made Daniel great, and gave him many great gifts, and made him to rule over the whole province of Babylon, and to be chief governor over all the wise men of Babylon.
  49. Daniel requested of the king, and he appointed Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel was in the gate of the king.

  23. לך אלה אבהתי מהודא ומשבח אנה די חכמתא וגבורתא יהבת לי וכען הודעתני די־בעינא מנך די־מלת מלכא הודעתנא׃
  24. כל־קבל דנה דניאל על על־אריוך די מני מלכא להובדה לחכימי בבל אזל וכן אמר־לה לחכימי בבל אל־תהובד העלני קדם מלכא ופשרא למלכא אחוא׃ ס
  25. אדין אריוך בהתבהלה הנעל לדניאל קדם מלכא וכן אמר־לה די־השכחת גבר מן־בני גלותא די יהוד די פשרא למלכא יהודע׃
  26. ענה מלכא ואמר לדניאל די שמה בלטשאצר כהל להודעתני חלמא די־חזית ופשרה׃
  27. ענה דניאל קדם מלכא ואמר רזה די־מלכא שאל לא חכימין אשפין חרטמין גזרין יכלין להחויה למלכא׃

Daniel 2 Text (Greek)
  1. και εν τω ετει τω δευτερω της βασιλειας ναβουχοδονοσορ συνεβη εις οραματα και ενυπνια εμπεσειν τον βασιλεα και ταραχθηναι εν τω ενυπνιω αυτου και ο υπνος αυτου εγενετο απ'
  2. και επεταξεν ο βασιλευς εισενεχθηναι τους επαοιδους και τους μαγους και τους φαρμακους των χαλδαιων αναγγειλαι τω βασιλει τα ενυπνια αυτου και παραγενομενοι εστησαν παρα τω
  3. και ειπεν αυτοις ο βασιλευς ενυπνιον εωρακα και εκινηθη μου το πνευμα επιγνωναι ουν θελω το
  4. και ελαλησαν οι χαλδαιοι προς τον βασιλεα συριστι κυριε βασιλευ τον αιωνα ζηθι αναγγειλον το ενυπνιον σου τοις παισι σου και ημεις σοι φρασομεν την συγκρισιν
  5. αποκριθεις δε ο βασιλευς ειπε τοις χαλδαιοις οτι εαν μη απαγγειλητε μοι επ' αληθειας το ενυπνιον και την τουτου συγκρισιν δηλωσητε μοι παραδειγματισθησεσθε και αναληφθησεται υμων τα υπαρχοντα εις το
  6. εαν δε το ενυπνιον διασαφησητε μοι και την τουτου συγκρισιν αναγγειλητε ληψεσθε δοματα παντοια και δοξασθησεσθε υπ' εμου δηλωσατε μοι το ενυπνιον και
  7. απεκριθησαν δε εκ δευτερου λεγοντες βασιλευ το οραμα ειπον και οι παιδες σου κρινουσι προς
  8. και ειπεν αυτοις ο βασιλευς επ' αληθειας οιδα οτι καιρον υμεις εξαγοραζετε καθαπερ εωρακατε οτι απεστη απ' εμου το πραγμα καθαπερ ουν προστεταχα ουτως
  9. εαν μη το ενυπνιον απαγγειλητε μοι επ' αληθειας και την τουτου συγκρισιν δηλωσητε θανατω περιπεσεισθε συνειπασθε γαρ λογους ψευδεις ποιησασθαι επ' εμου εως αν ο καιρος αλλοιωθη νυν ουν εαν το ρημα ειπητε μοι ο την νυκτα εωρακα γνωσομαι οτι και την τουτου κρισιν
  10. και απεκριθησαν οι χαλδαιοι επι του βασιλεως οτι ουδεις των επι της γης δυνησεται ειπειν τω βασιλει ο εωρακε καθαπερ συ ερωτας και πας βασιλευς και πας δυναστης τοιουτο πραγμα ουκ επερωτα παντα σοφον και μαγον και
  11. και ο λογος ον ζητεις βασιλευ βαρυς εστι και επιδοξος και ουδεις εστιν ος δηλωσει ταυτα τω βασιλει ει μητι αγγελος ου ουκ εστι κατοικητηριον μετα πασης σαρκος οθεν ουκ ενδεχεται γενεσθαι καθαπερ
  12. τοτε ο βασιλευς στυγνος γενομενος και περιλυπος προσεταξεν εξαγαγειν παντας τους σοφους της
  13. και εδογματισθη παντας αποκτειναι εζητηθη δε ο δανιηλ και παντες οι μετ' αυτου χαριν του
  14. τοτε δανιηλ ειπε βουλην και γνωμην ην ειχεν αριωχη τω αρχιμαγειρω του βασιλεως ω προσεταξεν εξαγαγειν τους σοφιστας της
  15. και επυνθανετο αυτου λεγων περι τινος δογματιζεται πικρως παρα του βασιλεως τοτε το προσταγμα εσημανεν ο αριωχης τω
  16. ο δε δανιηλ εισηλθε ταχεως προς τον βασιλεα και ηξιωσεν ινα δοθη αυτω χρονος παρα του βασιλεως και δηλωση παντα επι του
  17. τοτε απελθων δανιηλ εις τον οικον αυτου τω ανανια και μισαηλ και αζαρια τοις συνεταιροις υπεδειξε
  18. και παρηγγειλε νηστειαν και δεησιν και τιμωριαν ζητησαι παρα του κυριου του υψιστου περι του μυστηριου τουτου οπως μη εκδοθωσι δανιηλ και οι μετ' αυτου εις απωλειαν αμα τοις σοφισταις
  19. τοτε τω δανιηλ εν οραματι εν αυτη τη νυκτι το μυστηριον του βασιλεως εξεφανθη ευσημως τοτε δανιηλ ευλογησε τον κυριον τον
  20. και εκφωνησας ειπεν εσται το ονομα του κυριου του μεγαλου ευλογημενον εις τον αιωνα οτι η σοφια και η μεγαλωσυνη αυτου
  21. και αυτος αλλοιοι καιρους και χρονους μεθιστων βασιλεις και καθιστων διδους σοφοις σοφιαν και συνεσιν τοις εν επιστημη
  22. ανακαλυπτων τα βαθεα και σκοτεινα και γινωσκων τα εν τω σκοτει και τα εν τω φωτι και παρ' αυτω
  23. σοι κυριε των πατερων μου εξομολογουμαι και αινω οτι σοφιαν και φρονησιν εδωκας μοι και νυν εσημανας μοι οσα ηξιωσα του δηλωσαι τω βασιλει προς
  24. εισελθων δε δανιηλ προς τον αριωχ τον κατασταθεντα υπο του βασιλεως αποκτειναι παντας τους σοφιστας της βαβυλωνιας ειπεν αυτω τους μεν σοφιστας της βαβυλωνιας μη απολεσης εισαγαγε δε με προς τον βασιλεα και εκαστα τω βασιλει
  25. τοτε αριωχ κατα σπουδην εισηγαγεν τον δανιηλ προς τον βασιλεα και ειπεν αυτω οτι ευρηκα ανθρωπον σοφον εκ της αιχμαλωσιας των υιων της ιουδαιας ος τω βασιλει δηλωσει
  26. αποκριθεις δε ο βασιλευς ειπε τω δανιηλ επικαλουμενω δε χαλδαιστι βαλτασαρ δυνηση δηλωσαι μοι το οραμα ο ειδον και την τουτου
  27. εκφωνησας δε ο δανιηλ επι του βασιλεως ειπεν το μυστηριον ο εωρακεν ο βασιλευς ουκ εστι σοφων και φαρμακων και επαοιδων και γαζαρηνων η
  28. αλλ' εστι θεος εν ουρανω ανακαλυπτων μυστηρια ος εδηλωσε τω βασιλει ναβουχοδονοσορ α δει γενεσθαι επ' εσχατων των ημερων βασιλευ εις τον αιωνα ζηθι το ενυπνιον και το οραμα της κεφαλης σου επι της κοιτης σου τουτο
  29. συ βασιλευ κατακλιθεις επι της κοιτης σου εωρακας παντα οσα δει γενεσθαι επ' εσχατων των ημερων και ο ανακαλυπτων μυστηρια εδηλωσε σοι α δει
  30. καμοι δε ου παρα την σοφιαν την ουσαν εν εμοι υπερ παντας τους ανθρωπους το μυστηριον τουτο εξεφανθη αλλ' ενεκεν του δηλωθηναι τω βασιλει εσημανθη μοι α υπελαβες τη καρδια σου εν
  31. και συ βασιλευ εωρακας και ιδου εικων μια και ην η εικων εκεινη μεγαλη σφοδρα και η προσοψις αυτης υπερφερης εστηκει εναντιον σου και η προσοψις της εικονος
  32. και ην η κεφαλη αυτης απο χρυσιου χρηστου το στηθος και οι βραχιονες αργυροι η κοιλια και οι μηροι
  33. τα δε σκελη σιδηρα οι ποδες μερος μεν τι σιδηρου μερος δε τι
  34. εωρακας εως οτου ετμηθη λιθος εξ ορους ανευ χειρων και επαταξε την εικονα επι τους ποδας τους σιδηρους και οστρακινους και κατηλεσεν
  35. τοτε λεπτα εγενετο αμα ο σιδηρος και το οστρακον και ο χαλκος και ο αργυρος και το χρυσιον και εγενετο ωσει λεπτοτερον αχυρου εν αλωνι και ερριπισεν αυτα ο ανεμος ωστε μηδεν καταλειφθηναι εξ αυτων και ο λιθος ο παταξας την εικονα εγενετο ορος μεγα και επαταξε πασαν την
  36. τουτο το οραμα και την κρισιν δε ερουμεν επι του
  37. συ βασιλευ βασιλευς βασιλεων και σοι ο κυριος του ουρανου την αρχην και την βασιλειαν και την ισχυν και την τιμην και την δοξαν
  38. εν παση τη οικουμενη απο ανθρωπων και θηριων αγριων και πετεινων ουρανου και των ιχθυων της θαλασσης παρεδωκεν υπο τας χειρας σου κυριευειν παντων συ ει η κεφαλη η
  39. και μετα σε αναστησεται βασιλεια ελαττων σου και τριτη βασιλεια αλλη χαλκη η κυριευσει πασης της
  40. και βασιλεια τεταρτη ισχυρα ωσπερ ο σιδηρος ο δαμαζων παντα και παν δενδρον εκκοπτων και σεισθησεται πασα η
  41. και ως εωρακας τους ποδας αυτης μερος μεν τι οστρακου κεραμικου μερος δε τι σιδηρου βασιλεια αλλη διμερης εσται εν αυτη καθαπερ ειδες τον σιδηρον αναμεμειγμενον αμα τω πηλινω
  42. και οι δακτυλοι των ποδων μερος μεν τι σιδηρουν μερος δε τι οστρακινον μερος τι της βασιλειας εσται ισχυρον και μερος τι εσται
  43. και ως ειδες τον σιδηρον αναμεμειγμενον αμα τω πηλινω οστρακω συμμειγεις εσονται εις γενεσιν ανθρωπων ουκ εσονται δε ομονοουντες ουτε ευνοουντες αλληλοις ωσπερ ουδε ο σιδηρος δυναται συγκραθηναι τω
  44. και εν τοις χρονοις των βασιλεων τουτων στησει ο θεος του ουρανου βασιλειαν αλλην ητις εσται εις τους αιωνας και ου φθαρησεται και αυτη η βασιλεια αλλο εθνος ου μη εαση παταξει δε και αφανισει τας βασιλειας ταυτας και αυτη στησεται εις τον
  45. καθαπερ εωρακας εξ ορους τμηθηναι λιθον ανευ χειρων και συνηλοησε το οστρακον τον σιδηρον και τον χαλκον και τον αργυρον και τον χρυσον ο θεος ο μεγας εσημανε τω βασιλει τα εσομενα επ' εσχατων των ημερων και ακριβες το οραμα και πιστη η τουτου
  46. τοτε ναβουχοδονοσορ ο βασιλευς πεσων επι προσωπον χαμαι προσεκυνησε τω δανιηλ και επεταξε θυσιας και σπονδας ποιησαι
  47. και εκφωνησας ο βασιλευς προς τον δανιηλ ειπεν επ' αληθειας εστιν ο θεος υμων θεος των θεων και κυριος των βασιλεων ο εκφαινων μυστηρια κρυπτα μονος οτι εδυνασθης δηλωσαι το μυστηριον
  48. τοτε ο βασιλευς ναβουχοδονοσορ δανιηλ μεγαλυνας και δους δωρεας μεγαλας και πολλας κατεστησεν επι των πραγματων της βαβυλωνιας και απεδειξεν αυτον αρχοντα και ηγουμενον παντων των σοφιστων
  49. και δανιηλ ηξιωσε τον βασιλεα ινα κατασταθωσιν επι των πραγματων της βαβυλωνιας σεδραχ μισαχ αβδεναγω και δανιηλ ην εν τη βασιλικη
Daniel 2 Text (Latin)
  1. In anno secundo regni Nabuchodonosor, vidit Nabuchodonosor somnium, et conterritus est spiritus ejus, et somnium ejus fugit ab eo.
  2. Præcepit autem rex ut convocarentur arioli, et magi, et malefici, et Chaldæi, ut indicarent regi somnia sua. Qui cum venissent, steterunt coram rege.
  3. Et dixit ad eos rex : Vidi somnium, et mente confusus ignoro quid viderim.
  4. Responderuntque Chaldæi regi syriace : Rex, in sempiternum vive ! dic somnium servis tuis, et interpretationem ejus indicabimus.
  5. Et respondens rex ait Chaldæis : Sermo recessit a me : nisi indicaveritis mihi somnium, et conjecturam ejus, peribitis vos, et domus vestræ publicabuntur.
  6. Si autem somnium, et conjecturam ejus narraveritis, præmia, et dona, et honorem multum accipietis a me. Somnium igitur, et interpretationem ejus indicate mihi.
  7. Responderunt secundo, atque dixerunt : Rex somnium dicat servis suis, et interpretationem illius indicabimus.
  8. Respondit rex, et ait : Certe novi quod tempus redimitis, scientes quod recesserit a me sermo.
  9. Si ergo somnium non indicaveritis mihi, una est de vobis sententia, quod interpretationem quoque fallacem, et deceptione plenam composueritis, ut loquamini mihi donec tempus pertranseat. Somnium itaque dicite mihi, ut sciam quod interpretationem quoque ejus veram loquamini.
  10. Respondentes ergo Chaldæi coram rege, dixerunt : Non est homo super terram, qui sermonem tuum, rex, possit implere : sed neque regum quisquam magnus et potens verbum hujuscemodi sciscitatur ab omni ariolo, et mago, et Chaldæo.
  11. Sermo enim, quem tu quæris, rex, gravis est : nec reperietur quisquam qui indicet illum in conspectu regis, exceptis diis, quorum non est cum hominibus conversatio.
  12. Quo audito, rex, in furore et in ira magna, præcepit ut perirent omnes sapientes Babylonis.
  13. Et egressa sententia, sapientes interficiebantur : quærebanturque Daniel et socii ejus, ut perirent.
  14. Tunc Daniel requisivit de lege atque sententia ab Arioch principe militiæ regis, qui egressus fuerat ad interficiendos sapientes Babylonis.
  15. Et interrogavit eum, qui a rege potestatem acceperat, quam ob causam tam crudelis sententia a facie regis esset egressa. Cum ergo rem indicasset Arioch Danieli,
  16. Daniel ingressus rogavit regem ut tempus daret sibi ad solutionem indicandam regi.
  17. Et ingressus est domum suam, Ananiæque et Misaëli et Azariæ, sociis suis, indicavit negotium,
  18. ut quærerent misericordiam a facie Dei cæli super sacramento isto, et non perirent Daniel et socii ejus cum ceteris sapientibus Babylonis.
  19. Tunc Danieli mysterium per visionem nocte revelatum est : et benedixit Daniel Deum cæli,
  20. et locutus ait : Sit nomen Domini benedictum a sæculo et usque in sæculum : quia sapientia et fortitudo ejus sunt.
  21. Et ipse mutat tempora, et ætates : transfert regna, atque constituit : dat sapientiam sapientibus, et scientiam intelligentibus disciplinam.
  22. Ipse revelat profunda et abscondita, et novit in tenebris constituta : et lux cum eo est.
  23. Tibi, Deus patrum nostrorum, confiteor, teque laudo, quia sapientiam et fortitudinem dedisti mihi, et nunc ostendisti mihi quæ rogavimus te, quia sermonem regis aperuisti nobis.
  24. Post hæc Daniel ingressus ad Arioch, quem constituerat rex ut perderet sapientes Babylonis, sic ei locutus est : Sapientes Babylonis ne perdas : introduc me in conspectu regis, et solutionem regi narrabo.
  25. Tunc Arioch festinus introduxit Danielem ad regem, et dixit ei : Inveni hominem de filiis transmigrationis Juda, qui solutionem regi annuntiet.
  26. Respondit rex, et dixit Danieli, cujus nomen erat Baltassar : Putasne vere potes mihi indicare somnium, quod vidi, et interpretationem ejus ?
  27. Et respondens Daniel coram rege, ait : Mysterium, quod rex interrogat, sapientes, magi, arioli, et aruspices nequeunt indicare regi :
  28. sed est Deus in cælo revelans mysteria, qui indicavit tibi, rex Nabuchodonosor, quæ ventura sunt in novissimis temporibus. Somnium tuum, et visiones capitis tui in cubili tuo hujuscemodi sunt.
  29. Tu, rex, cogitare cœpisti in strato tuo, quid esset futurum post hæc : et qui revelat mysteria, ostendit tibi quæ ventura sunt.
  30. Mihi quoque non in sapientia, quæ est in me plus quam in cunctis viventibus, sacramentum hoc revelatum est : sed ut interpretatio regi manifesta fieret, et cogitationes mentis tuæ scires.
  31. Tu, rex, videbas, et ecce quasi statua una grandis : statua illa magna, et statura sublimis stabat contra te, et intuitus ejus erat terribilis.
  32. Hujus statuæ caput ex auro optimo erat, pectus autem et brachia de argento, porro venter et femora ex ære,
  33. tibiæ autem ferreæ : pedum quædam pars erat ferrea, quædam autem fictilis.
  34. Videbas ita, donec abscissus est lapis de monte sine manibus : et percussit statuam in pedibus ejus ferreis et fictilibus, et comminuit eos.
  35. Tunc contrita sunt pariter ferrum, testa, æs, argentum, et aurum, et redacta quasi in favillam æstivæ areæ, quæ rapta sunt vento, nullusque locus inventus est eis : lapis autem, qui percusserat statuam, factus est mons magnus, et implevit universam terram.
  36. hoc est somnium. Interpretationem quoque ejus dicemus coram te, rex.
  37. Tu rex regum es : et Deus cæli regnum, et fortitudinem, et imperium, et gloriam dedit tibi :
  38. et omnia, in quibus habitant filii hominum, et bestiæ agri : volucres quoque cæli dedit in manu tua, et sub ditione tua universa constituit : tu es ergo caput aureum.
  39. Et post te consurget regnum aliud minus te argenteum : et regnum tertium aliud æreum, quod imperabit universæ terræ.
  40. Et regnum quartum erit velut ferrum : quomodo ferrum comminuit, et domat omnia, sic comminuet, et conteret omnia hæc.
  41. Porro quia vidisti pedum, et digitorum partem testæ figuli, et partem ferream, regnum divisum erit : quod tamen de plantario ferri orietur, secundum quod vidisti ferrum mistum testæ ex luto.
  42. Et digitos pedum ex parte ferreos, et ex parte fictiles : ex parte regnum erit solidum, et ex parte contritum.
  43. Quod autem vidisti ferrum mistum testæ ex luto, commiscebuntur quidem humano semine, sed non adhærebunt sibi, sicut ferrum misceri non potest testæ.
  44. In diebus autem regnorum illorum suscitabit Deus cæli regnum, quod in æternum non dissipabitur, et regnum ejus alteri populo non tradetur : comminuet autem, et consumet universa regna hæc, et ipsum stabit in æternum.
  45. Secundum quod vidisti, quod de monte abscissus est lapis sine manibus, et comminuit testam, et ferrum, et æs, et argentum, et aurum, Deus magnus ostendit regi quæ ventura sunt postea : et verum est somnium, et fidelis interpretatio ejus.
  46. Tunc rex Nabuchodonosor cecidit in faciem suam, et Danielem adoravit, et hostias, et incensum præcepit ut sacrificarent ei.
  47. Loquens ergo rex, ait Danieli : Vere Deus vester Deus deorum est, et Dominus regum, et revelans mysteria : quoniam tu potuisti aperire hoc sacramentum.
  48. Tunc rex Danielem in sublime extulit, et munera multa et magna dedit ei : et constituit eum principem super omnes provincias Babylonis, et præfectum magistratuum super cunctos sapientes Babylonis.
  49. Daniel autem postulavit a rege, et constituit super opera provinciæ Babylonis Sidrach, Misach, et Abdenago : ipse autem Daniel erat in foribus regis.
Daniel 2 Text (KJV)
  1. And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
  2. Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
  3. And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
  4. Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
  5. The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
  6. But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
  7. They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.
  8. The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.
  9. But if ye will 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 the interpretation thereof.
  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, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
  11. And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
  12. For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
  13. And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.
  14. Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:
  15. He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
  16. Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.
  17. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
  18. That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
  19. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
  20. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
  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 know understanding:
  22. He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
  23. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
  24. Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained 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.
  25. Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
  26. The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
  27. Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
  28. But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh 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;
  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 maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
  30. But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
  31. Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
  32. This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
  33. His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
  34. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
  35. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
  36. This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
  37. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
  38. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
  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.
  40. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
  41. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' 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.
  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.
  43. And whereas thou sawest 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 is not mixed with clay.
  44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
  45. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the 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.
  46. Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
  47. The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
  48. Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
  49. Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.
