2:1 And in the second [H8147] year [H8141] of the reign [H4438] of Nebuchadnezzar [H5019] Nebuchadnezzar [H5019] dreamed [H2492] dreams [H2472] , wherewith his spirit [H7307] was troubled [H6470] , and his sleep [H8142] brake [H1961] from him.

2:2 Then the king [H4428] commanded [H559] to call [H7121] the magicians [H2748] , and the astrologers [H825] , and the sorcerers [H3784] , and the Chaldeans [H3778] , for to shew [H5046] the king [H4428] his dreams [H2472] . So they came [H935] and stood [H5975] before [H6440] the king [H4428] .

2:3 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto them, I have dreamed [H2492] a dream [H2472] , and my spirit [H7307] was troubled [H6470] to know [H3045] the dream [H2472] .

2:4 Then spake [H1696] the Chaldeans [H3778] to the king [H4428] in Syriack [H762] , O king [H4430] , live [H2418] for ever [H5957] : tell [H560] thy servants [H5649] the dream [H2493] , and we will shew [H2324] the interpretation [H6591] .

2:5 The king [H4430] answered [H6032] and said [H560] to the Chaldeans [H3779] , The thing [H4406] is gone [H230] from me [H4481] : if [H2006] ye will not [H3809] make known [H3046] unto me the dream [H2493] , with the interpretation [H6591] thereof, ye shall be cut [H5648] in pieces [H1917] , and your houses [H1005] shall be made [H7761] a dunghill [H5122] .(cut: Cald. made pieces)

2:6 But if [H2006] ye shew [H2324] the dream [H2493] , and the interpretation [H6591] thereof, ye shall receive [H6902] of [H4481] me [H6925] gifts [H4978] and rewards [H5023] and great [H7690] honour [H3367] : therefore [H3861] shew [H2324] me the dream [H2493] , and the interpretation [H6591] thereof.(rewards: or, fee)

2:7 They answered [H6032] again [H8579] and said [H560] , Let the king [H4430] tell [H560] his servants [H5649] the dream [H2493] , and we will shew [H2324] the interpretation [H6591] of it.

2:8 The king [H4430] answered [H6032] and said [H560] , I [H576] know [H3046] of [H4481] certainty [H3330] that ye [H608] would gain [H2084] the time [H5732] , because [H6903] [H3606] ye see [H2370] the thing [H4406] is gone [H230] from [H4481] me.(gain: Cald. buy)

2:9 But if [H2006] ye will not [H3809] make known [H3046] unto me the dream [H2493] , [there is but] one [H1932] [H2298] decree [H1882] for you: for ye have prepared [H2164] lying [H3538] and corrupt [H7844] words [H4406] to speak [H560] before [H6925] me, till [H5705] the time [H5732] be changed [H8133] : therefore [H3861] tell [H560] me the dream [H2493] , and I shall know [H3046] that [H1768] ye can shew [H2324] me the interpretation [H6591] thereof.

2:10 The Chaldeans [H3779] answered [H6032] before [H6925] the king [H4430] , and said [H560] , There is [H383] not [H3809] a man [H606] upon [H5922] the earth [H3007] that can [H3202] shew [H2324] the king's [H4430] matter [H4406] : therefore [H6903] [H1768] [there is] no [H3809] king [H4430] , lord [H7229] , nor ruler [H7990] , [that] asked [H7593] such [H1836] things [H4406] at any [H3606] magician [H2749] , or astrologer [H826] , or Chaldean [H3779] .

2:11 And [it is] a rare [H3358] thing [H4406] that the king [H4430] requireth [H7593] , and there is [H383] none [H3809] other [H321] that can shew [H2324] it before [H6925] the king [H4430] , except [H3861] the gods [H426] , whose dwelling [H4070] is [H383] not [H3809] with [H5974] flesh [H1321] .

2:12 For [H6903] this [H1836] cause [H3606] the king [H4430] was angry [H1149] and very [H7690] furious [H7108] , and commanded [H560] to destroy [H7] all [H3606] the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] .

2:13 And the decree [H1882] went forth [H5312] that the wise [H2445] [men] should be slain [H6992] ; and they sought [H1156] Daniel [H1841] and his fellows [H2269] to be slain [H6992] .

2:14 Then [H116] Daniel [H1841] answered [H8421] with counsel [H5843] and wisdom [H2942] to Arioch [H746] the captain [H7229] of [H1768] the king's [H4430] guard [H2877] , which was gone forth [H5312] to slay [H6992] the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] :(answered: Cald. returned)(captain: or, chief marshal: Cald. chief of the executioners, or, slaughtermen)

2:15 He answered [H6032] and said [H560] to Arioch [H746] the king's [H4430] captain [H7990] , Why [H4101] [H5922] [is] the decree [H1882] [so] hasty [H2685] from [H4481] [H6925] the king [H4430] ? Then [H116] Arioch [H746] made the thing [H4406] known [H3046] to Daniel [H1841] .

2:16 Then Daniel [H1841] went in [H5954] , and desired [H1156] of [H4481] the king [H4430] that he would give [H5415] him time [H2166] , and that he would shew [H2324] the king [H4430] the interpretation [H6591] .

2:17 Then [H116] Daniel [H1841] went [H236] to his house [H1005] , and made the thing [H4406] known [H3046] to Hananiah [H2608] , Mishael [H4333] , and Azariah [H5839] , his companions [H2269] :

2:18 That they would desire [H1156] mercies [H7359] of [H4481] [H6925] the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] concerning [H5922] this [H1836] secret [H7328] ; that Daniel [H1841] and his fellows [H2269] should not [H3809] perish [H7] with [H5974] the rest [H7606] of the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] .(of the God: Cald. from before God)(that Daniel: or, that they should not destroy Daniel, etc)

2:19 Then [H116] was the secret [H7328] revealed [H1541] unto Daniel [H1841] in a night [H3916] vision [H2376] . Then [H116] Daniel [H1841] blessed [H1289] the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] .

2:20 Daniel [H1841] answered [H6032] and said [H560] , Blessed [H1289] be [H1934] the name [H8036] of God [H426] for [H4481] ever [H5957] and ever [H5705] [H5957] : for wisdom [H2452] and might [H1370] are [H1932] his:

2:21 And he changeth [H8133] the times [H5732] and the seasons [H2166] : he removeth [H5709] kings [H4430] , and setteth up [H6966] kings [H4430] : he giveth [H3052] wisdom [H2452] unto the wise [H2445] , and knowledge [H4486] to them that know [H3046] understanding [H999] :

2:22 He revealeth [H1541] the deep [H5994] and secret things [H5642] : he knoweth [H3046] what [H4101] [is] in the darkness [H2816] , and the light [H5094] dwelleth [H8271] with him [H5974] .

2:23 I [H576] thank [H3029] thee, and praise [H7624] thee, O thou God [H426] of my fathers [H2] , who hast given [H3052] me wisdom [H2452] and might [H1370] , and hast made known [H3046] unto me now [H3705] what we desired [H1156] of thee [H4481] : for thou hast [now] made known [H3046] unto us the king's [H4430] matter [H4406] .

2:24 Therefore [H3606] [H6903] [H1836] Daniel [H1841] went in [H5954] unto [H5922] Arioch [H746] , whom the king [H4430] had ordained [H4483] to destroy [H7] the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] : he went [H236] and said [H560] thus [H3652] unto him; Destroy [H7] not [H409] the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] : bring me in [H5954] before [H6925] the king [H4430] , and I will shew [H2324] unto the king [H4430] the interpretation [H6591] .

2:25 Then [H116] Arioch [H746] brought in [H5954] Daniel [H1841] before [H6925] the king [H4430] in haste [H927] , and said [H560] thus [H3652] unto him, I have found [H7912] a man [H1400] of the captives [H1123] [H1547] of [H4481] Judah [H3061] , that will make known [H3046] unto the king [H4430] the interpretation [H6591] .(I have: Cald. That I have found)(captives: Cald. children of the captivity of Judah)

2:26 The king [H4430] answered [H6032] and said [H560] to Daniel [H1841] , whose name [H8036] [was] Belteshazzar [H1096] , Art [H383] thou able [H3546] to make known [H3046] unto me the dream [H2493] which I have seen [H2370] , and the interpretation [H6591] thereof?

2:27 Daniel [H1841] answered [H6032] in the presence [H6925] of the king [H4430] , and said [H560] , The secret [H7328] which the king [H4430] hath demanded [H7593] cannot [H3202] [H3809] the wise [H2445] [men], the astrologers [H826] , the magicians [H2749] , the soothsayers [H1505] , shew [H2324] unto the king [H4430] ;

2:28 But [H1297] there is [H383] a God [H426] in heaven [H8065] that revealeth [H1541] secrets [H7328] , and maketh known [H3046] to the king [H4430] Nebuchadnezzar [H5020] what [H4101] shall be [H1934] in the latter [H320] days [H3118] . Thy dream [H2493] , and the visions [H2376] of thy head [H7217] upon [H5922] thy bed [H4903] , are these [H1836] ;(maketh: Cald. hath made known)

2:29 As for thee [H607] , O king [H4430] , thy thoughts [H7476] came [H5559] [into thy mind] upon [H5922] thy bed [H4903] , what [H4101] should come to pass [H1934] hereafter [H311] [H1836] : and he that revealeth [H1541] secrets [H7328] maketh known [H3046] to thee what [H4101] shall come to pass [H1934] .(came: Cald. came up)

2:30 But as for me [H576] , this [H1836] secret [H7328] is not [H3809] revealed [H1541] to me for [any] wisdom [H2452] that I have [H383] more than [H4481] any [H3606] living [H2417] , but [H3861] for [their] sakes [H1701] that [H5922] shall make known [H3046] the interpretation [H6591] to the king [H4430] , and that thou mightest know [H3046] the thoughts [H7476] of thy heart [H3825] .(but for: or, but for the intent that the interpretation may be made known to the king)

2:31 Thou [H607] , O king [H4430] , sawest [H1934] [H2370] , and behold [H431] a great [H2298] [H7690] image [H6755] . This [H1797] great [H7229] image [H6755] , whose brightness [H2122] [was] excellent [H3493] , stood [H6966] before [H6903] thee; and the form [H7299] thereof [was] terrible [H1763] .(sawest: Cald. wast seeing)

2:32 This image's [H6755] head [H7217] [was] of fine [H2869] gold [H1722] , his breast [H2306] and his arms [H1872] of silver [H3702] , his belly [H4577] and his thighs [H3410] of brass [H5174] ,(thighs: or, sides)

2:33 His legs [H8243] of iron [H6523] , his feet [H7271] part [H4481] of iron [H6523] and part [H4481] of clay [H2635] .

2:34 Thou sawest [H2370] [H1934] till [H5705] that a stone [H69] was cut out [H1505] without [H3809] hands [H3028] , which smote [H4223] the image [H6755] upon [H5922] his feet [H7271] [that were] of iron [H6523] and clay [H2635] , and brake [H1855] them [H1994] to pieces [H1855] .(without: or, which was not in hands)

2:35 Then [H116] was the iron [H6523] , the clay [H2635] , the brass [H5174] , the silver [H3702] , and the gold [H1722] , broken to pieces [H1855] [H1751] together [H2298] , and became [H1934] like the chaff [H5784] of [H4481] the summer [H7007] threshingfloors [H147] ; and the wind [H7308] carried [H5376] them [H1994] away [H5376] , that [H3606] no [H3809] place [H870] was found [H7912] for them: and the stone [H69] that smote [H4223] the image [H6755] became [H1934] a great [H7229] mountain [H2906] , and filled [H4391] the whole [H3606] earth [H772] .

2:36 This [H1836] [is] the dream [H2493] ; and we will tell [H560] the interpretation [H6591] thereof before [H6925] the king [H4430] .

2:37 Thou [H607] , O king [H4430] , [art] a king [H4430] of kings [H4430] : for the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] hath given [H3052] thee a kingdom [H4437] , power [H2632] , and strength [H8632] , and glory [H3367] .

2:38 And wheresoever [H3606] the children [H1123] of men [H606] dwell [H1753] , the beasts [H2423] of the field [H1251] and the fowls [H5776] of the heaven [H8065] hath he given [H3052] into thine hand [H3028] , and hath made thee ruler [H7981] over them all [H3606] . Thou [H607] [art] this head [H7217] of gold [H1722] .

2:39 And after [H870] thee shall arise [H6966] another [H317] kingdom [H4437] inferior [H772] to thee [H4481] , and another [H317] third [H8523] kingdom [H4437] of brass [H5174] , which shall bear rule [H7981] over all [H3606] the earth [H772] .

2:40 And the fourth [H7244] kingdom [H4437] shall be [H1934] strong [H8624] as iron [H6523] : forasmuch as iron [H6523] breaketh in pieces [H1855] and subdueth [H2827] all [H3606] [things]: and as [H6903] iron [H6523] that breaketh [H7490] all [H3606] these [H459] , shall it break in pieces [H1855] and bruise [H7490] .

2:41 And whereas thou sawest [H2370] the feet [H7271] and toes [H677] , part [H4481] of potters' [H6353] clay [H2635] , and part [H4481] of iron [H6523] , the kingdom [H4437] shall be [H1934] divided [H6386] ; but [H4481] there shall be [H1934] in it of [H4481] the strength [H5326] of the iron [H6523] , forasmuch as [H3606] [H6903] thou sawest [H2370] the iron [H6523] mixed [H6151] with miry [H2917] clay [H2635] .

2:42 And [as] the toes [H677] of the feet [H7271] [were] part [H4481] of iron [H6523] , and part [H4481] of clay [H2635] , [so] the kingdom [H4437] shall be [H1934] partly [H4481] [H7118] strong [H8624] , and partly [H4481] [H7118] broken [H8406] .(broken: or, brittle)

2:43 And whereas [H1768] thou sawest [H2370] iron [H6523] mixed [H6151] with miry [H2917] clay [H2635] , they shall mingle themselves [H1934] [H6151] with the seed [H2234] of men [H606] : but they shall [H1934] not [H3809] cleave [H1693] one [H1836] to [H5974] another [H1836] , even [H1888] as iron [H6523] is not [H3809] mixed [H6151] with clay [H2635] .(one: Cald. this with this)

2:44 And in the days [H3118] of these [H581] kings [H4430] shall the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] set up [H6966] a kingdom [H4437] , which shall never [H5957] [H3809] be destroyed [H2255] : and the kingdom [H4437] shall not [H3809] be left [H7662] to other [H321] people [H5972] , [but] it shall break in pieces [H1855] and consume [H5487] all [H3606] these [H459] kingdoms [H4437] , and it [H1932] shall stand [H6966] for ever [H5957] .(the days: Cald. their days)(the kingdom: Cald the kingdom thereof)

2:45 Forasmuch as [H3606] [H6903] thou sawest [H2370] that the stone [H69] was cut out [H1505] of the mountain [H2906] without [H3809] hands [H3028] , and that it brake in pieces [H1855] the iron [H6523] , the brass [H5174] , the clay [H2635] , the silver [H3702] , and the gold [H1722] ; the great [H7229] God [H426] hath made known [H3046] to the king [H4430] what [H4101] shall come to pass [H1934] hereafter [H311] [H1836] : and the dream [H2493] [is] certain [H3330] , and the interpretation [H6591] thereof sure [H540] .(without: or, which was not in hands)(hereafter: Cald. after this)

2:46 Then [H116] the king [H4430] Nebuchadnezzar [H5020] fell [H5308] upon [H5922] his face [H600] , and worshipped [H5457] Daniel [H1841] , and commanded [H560] that they should offer [H5260] an oblation [H4504] and sweet odours [H5208] unto him.

2:47 The king [H4430] answered [H6032] unto Daniel [H1841] , and said [H560] , Of [H4481] a truth [H7187] [it is], that [H1768] your God [H426] [is] a God [H426] of gods [H426] , and a Lord [H4756] of kings [H4430] , and a revealer [H1541] of secrets [H7328] , seeing thou couldest [H3202] reveal [H1541] this [H1836] secret [H7328] .

2:48 Then [H116] the king [H4430] made [H7236] Daniel [H1841] a great man [H7236] , and gave [H3052] him many [H7690] great [H7260] gifts [H4978] , and made him ruler [H7981] over [H5922] the whole [H3606] province [H4083] of Babylon [H895] , and chief [H7229] of the governors [H5460] over [H5922] all [H3606] the wise [H2445] [men] of Babylon [H895] .

2:49 Then Daniel [H1841] requested [H1156] of [H4481] the king [H4430] , and he set [H4483] Shadrach [H7715] , Meshach [H4336] , and Abednego [H5665] , over [H5922] the affairs [H5673] of the province [H4083] of Babylon [H895] : but Daniel [H1841] [sat] in the gate [H8651] of the king [H4430] .
