Kabbalah?
This verse is also important, because the Hand of God is mentioned.
This idea is very important to Christians, that God is shielded from our view by the hand, that we can not see His face.
But, we may know his "back parts."
Such ritual is and has been practiced by the Jews ever since. The Kohanim, or priest, have a service before their congregation, the back of the hand is available to the view of the priest, but the palms, facing to the congregation are not seen by him. Even the congregation is blinded by their shawls over their heads

Dan. 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

Dan. 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

Dan. 2:38 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, (Babylon).

Dan. 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, (the Persian/Medes), and another third kingdom of brass, (Greece), which shall bear rule (through Alexander the Great) over all the earth.

Dan. 2:40 And the fourth kingdom, (Rome), shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as (brittle,cold) iron that breaketh all these, shall it (self) break in (a dozen) pieces and bruise.

Dan. 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet (of the divided Catholic Church: Eastern, [1054 AD], and Roman, [590 AD]), and (the ten other Major Christian Denominations: [World Almanac]), toes, (the Lutherans, [1517]; Episcopalians, [1534]; Presbyterians, [1560;] Baptists, [1609]; Methodists, [1738]; Church of Christ Disciples, [1804]; Mormons, [1820]; Jehovah's Witnesses, [1884]; Pentacostals, [1901]; The United Church of Christ, [1957]), part of potters' clay (of Universal Catholicism), and part (secular:[Rev. 17:16]) of iron, the kingdom (of the Universal Roman Empire) shall be divided; but there shall be in it (the Western Culture of Rome), of the strength of the iron:[Rev. 17:16], forasmuch as thou sawest the (secular:[Rev. 17:16]) iron mixed with miry (Christian) clay.

Dan. 2:42 And as the (ten Major Christian Denominations), toes of the (two) feet, (The Universal Roman and Catholic Church/Empire), were (secular), part of iron:[Rev. 17:16], and (Christian), part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong (in culture), and partly broken (by inter-denominational Christianity and political re-alignments).

Dan. 2:43 And whereas thou sawest (secular) iron mixed with miry (Christian) clay, they shall mingle themselves (in a common Christianity) with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another (in
Nationalism), even as (secular) iron is not mixed with (religious) clay.

Dan. 2:44 And in the days of these kings, (after the Protestant Movement), shall the God of heaven set up a (true) kingdom (of heaven upon the earth), which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom (of heaven to come) shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these (inter-denominational) kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever [Rev 5:5].

Dan. 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone (of the New Testament) was cut out of the mountain (of Holy Hebrew Scripture), without hands (but by the deed of the crucifixion), and that it brake in pieces the iron (of Rome), the brass (of Greece), the clay (of Greek and
Roman Catholicism), the silver (of the Persian/Medes), and the gold (of Babylonian empires); the great God, (Shin, almighty), hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Dan. 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

Dan. 2:47 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.

Dan. 2:48 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.

Dan. 2:49 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.

Rev. 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings,  

(European nations:

1. Undivided Empire: Diocletian::capital Rome: [305 AD], 

2. Western Roman Empire: (Romulus Augustus): [to 476 AD], 

3. Eastern Roman: Byzantine Empire, [1453 AD], 

]4. Charlemagne, [800 - 1000 AD], 

5. Holy Roman Empire, [1200 AD-1492 AD], 

6. Italy, [Renaissance, [16th century], 

7. Spain, [17th century], 

8. France, [18th-19th Century], 

9. Britain, [19th-20th century], 

10. Nazi Germany), [20th century]).

which have received no kingdom as yet (in 90 AD); but receive power, (in a succession, one after the next), as kings one hour, (@ 150 years for each), with the beast, (Economic Empire: [Dan 3:1-5])
