In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchad. nezzar King of Babel unto Jerusalem and besieged it. And ye Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand with part of the. vessels of the house of God which he carried into the land of Shinar to the. house of his god and he brought the vessels into his gods treasury. And the King spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his Eunuchs that he should. bring certain of the children of Israel of the King s seed and of the princes. Children in whom was no blemish but well favored and instruct in all wisdom. and well seen in knowledge and able to utter knowledge and such as were able. to stand in the king s palace and whom they might teach the learning and the. tongue of the Chaldeans, And the King appointed them provision every day of a portion of the King s. meat and of the wine which he drank so nourishing them three years that at. the end thereof they might stand before the King, Now among these were certain of the children of Judah Daniel Hananiah. Mishael and Azariah, Unto whom the chief of the Eunuchs gave other names for he called Daniel. Belteshazzar and Hananiah Shadrach and Mishael Meshach and Azariah. But Daniel had determined in his heart that he would not defile himself with the. portion of the King s meat nor with the wine which he drank therefore he. required the chief of the Eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Now God had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the chief of the. And the chief of the Eunuchs said unto Daniel I fear my lord the King who. hath appointed your meat and your drink therefore if he see your faces worse. liking than the other children which are of your sort then shall you make me lose. mine head unto the King, Then said Daniel to Melzar whom the chief of the Eunuchs had set over. Daniel Hananiah Mishael and Azariah, Prove thy servants I beseech thee ten days and let them give us pulse to.
eat and water to drink, Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee and the countenances. of the children that eat of the portion of the King s meat and as thou seest deal. with thy servants, So he consented to them in this matter and proved them ten days. And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and in better. liking than all the childrens which did eat the portion of the King s meat. Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat and the wine that they should. drink and gave them pulse, As for these four children God gave them knowledge and understanding in all. learning and wisdom also he gave Daniel understanding of all visions and. Now when the time was expired that the King had appointed to bring them in. the chief of the Eunuchs brought them before Nebuchad nezzar. And the King communed with them and among them all was found none like. Daniel Hananiah Mishael and Azariah therefore stood they before the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding that the King enquired of. them he found them ten times better than all the enchanters and astrologians. that were in all his realm,And Daniel was unto the first year of king Cyrus. And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchad nezzar Nebuchad nezzar. dreamed dreams wherewith his spirit was troubled and his sleep was upon him. Then the King commanded to call the enchanters and the astrologians and the. sorcerers and the Chaldeans for to shew the King his dreams so they came and. stood before the King, And the King said unto them I have dreamed a dream and my spirit was.
troubled to know the dream, Then spake the Chaldeans to the King in the Aramites language O King live. forever shew thy servants thy dream and we shall shew the interpretation. And the King answered and said to the Chaldeans The thing is gone from me. If ye will not make me understand the dream with the interpretation thereof ye. shall be drawn in pieces and your houses shall be made a jakes. But if ye declare the dream and the interpretation thereof ye shall receive of. me gifts and rewards and great honor therefore shew me the dream and the. interpretation of it, They answered again and said Let the King shew his servants the dream and. we will declare the interpretation thereof, Then the King answered and said I know certainly that ye would gain the time. because ye see the thing is gone from me, But if ye will not declare me the dream there is but one judgment for you for. ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me till the time be. changed therefore tell me the dream that I may know if ye can declare me the. interpretation thereof, Then the Chaldeans answered before the King and said There is no man.
upon earth that can declare the King s matter yea there is neither king nor. prince nor lord that asked such things at an enchanter or astrologian or. For it is a rare thing that the King requireth and there is none other that can. declare it before the King except the gods whose dwelling is not with flesh. For this cause the king was angry and in great fury and commanded to. destroy all the wise men of Babel, And when sentence was given the wise men were slain and they sought. Daniel and his fellows to be put to death, Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the King s chief. steward which was gone forth to put to death the wise men of Babel. Yea he answered and said unto Arioch the king s captain Why is the. sentence so hasty from the king Then Arioch declared the thing to Daniel. So Daniel went and desired the king that he would give him leisure and that he. would shew the king the interpretation thereof, Then Daniel went to his house and shewed the matter to Hananiah Mishael. and Azariah his companions, That they should beseech the God of heaven for grace in this secret that. Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of ye wise men of Babel. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a vision by night therefore Daniel. praised the God of heaven, And Daniel answered and said The Name of God be praised forever and.
ever for wisdom and strength are his, And he changeth the times and seasons he taketh away kings he setteth up. kings he giveth wisdom unto the wise and understanding to those that. understand, He discovereth the deep and secret things he knoweth what is in darkness. and the light dwelleth with him, I thank thee and praise thee O thou God of my fathers that thou hast given. me wisdom and strength and hast shewed me now the thing that we desired of. thee for thou hast declared unto us the king s matter. Therefore Daniel went unto Arioch whom the King had ordained to destroy. the wise men of Babel he went and said thus unto him Destroy not the wise. men of Babel but bring me before the King and I will declare unto the King the. interpretation, Then Arioch brought Daniel before the King in all haste and said thus unto. him I have found a man of the children of Judah that were brought captives that. will declare unto the King the interpretation, Then answered the King and said unto Daniel whose name was.
Belteshazzar Art thou able to shew me the dream which I have seen and the. interpretation thereof, Daniel answered in the presence of the King and said The secret which the. King hath demanded can neither the wise the astrologians the enchanters nor. the soothsayers declare unto the King, But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets and sheweth the King. Nebuchad nezzar what shall be in the latter days Thy dream and the things. which thou hast seen in thine head upon thy bed is this. O King when thou wast in thy bed thoughts came into thy mind what should. come to pass hereafter and he that revealeth secrets telleth thee what shall. As for me this secret is not shewed me for any wisdom that I have more than. any other living but only to shew the King the interpretation and that thou. mightest know the thoughts of thine heart, O King thou sawest and behold there was a great image this great image. whose glory was so excellent stood before thee and the form thereof was. This image s head was of fine gold his breast and his arms of silver his belly. and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron and his feet were part of iron and part of clay. Thou beheldest it till a stone was cut without hands which smote the image. upon his feet that were of iron and clay and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron the clay the brass the silver and the gold broken all. together and became like the chaff of the summer flowers 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. This is the dream and we will declare before the King the interpretation. O King thou art a king of Kings for the God of heaven hath given thee a. kingdom power and strength and glory, And in all places where 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, And after thee shall rise another kingdom inferior to thee of silver and. another third kingdom shall be of brass which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron for as iron breaketh in pieces. and subdueth all things and as iron bruiseth all these things so shall it break in. pieces and bruise all, Where as 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 as. thou sawest the iron mixed with the clay and earth. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay so shall the. kingdom be partly strong and partly broken, And where as thou sawest iron mixed with clay and earth they shall mingle. themselves with the seed of men but they shall not join one with another as iron. cannot be mixed with clay, And in the days of these Kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom. which shall never be destroyed and this kingdom shall not be given to another. people but it shall break and destroy all these kingdoms and it shall stand. Where as thou sawest that the stone was cut of the mountain without hands. and that it brake in pieces the iron the brass the clay the silver and the gold so. the great God hath shewed the King what shall come to pass hereafter and the. dream is true and the interpretation thereof is sure. Then the King Nebuchad nezzar fell upon his face and bowed himself unto. Daniel and commanded that they should offer meat offerings and sweet odors. Also the King answered unto Daniel and said I know of a truth that your God. is a God of gods and the Lord of Kings and the revealer of secrets seeing thou. couldest open this secret, So the King made Daniel a great man and gave him many and great gifts He.
made him governor over the whole province of Babel and chief of the rulers and. above all the wise men of Babel, Then Daniel made request to the King and he set Shadrach Meshach and. Abednego over the charge of the province of Babel but Daniel sat in the gate of. Nebuchad nezzar the King made an image of gold whose height was three. score cubits and the breadth thereof six cubits he set it up in the plain of Dura. in the province of Babel, Then Nebuchad nezzar ye King sent forth to gather together the nobles the. princes and the dukes the judges the receivers the counselors the officers and. all the governors of the provinces that they should come to the dedication of the. image which Nebuchad nezzar the King had set up, So the nobles princes and dukes the judges the receivers the counselors. the officers and all the governors of the provinces were assembled unto the. dedicating of the image that Nebuchad nezzar the King had set up and they. stood before the image which Nebuchad nezzar had set up. Then an herald cried aloud Be it known to you O people nations and. That when ye hear the sound of the cornet trumpet harp sackbut psaltery. dulcimer and all instruments of music ye fall down and worship the golden. image that Nebuchad nezzar the King hath set up, And whosoever falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast. into the midst of an hot fiery furnace, Therefore as soon as all the people heard the sound of the cornet trumpet.
harp sackbut psaltery and all instruments of music all the people nations and. languages fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchad nezzar. the King had set up, By reason whereof at that same time came men of the Chaldeans and. grievously accused the Jews, For they spake and said to the King Nebuchad nezzar O King live forever. Thou O King hast made a decree that every man that shall hear the sound. of the cornet trumpet harp sackbut psaltery and dulcimer and all instruments. of music shall fall down and worship the golden image. And whosoever falleth not down and worshippeth that he should be cast into. the midst of an hot fiery furnace, There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the charge of ye province of. Babel Shadrach Meshach and Abednego these men O King have not. regarded thy commandment neither will they serve thy gods nor worship the. golden image that thou hast set up, Then Nebuchad nezzar in his anger and wrath commanded that they should. bring Shadrach Meshach and Abednego so these men were brought before the. And Nebuchad nezzar spake and said unto them What disorder will not. Daniel whom he adorned with such graces of his holy Spirit that Daniel above all others had most special revelations of such things as should come to the Church even from the time that they were in captivity to the last end of the world and to the general resurrection as of the four Monarchies and Empires of all the world to wit of the Babylonians Persians Grecians and Romans Also
