Dan. 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was
his sleep brake from him.
Dan. 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for
to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
Dan. 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
Dan. 2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriac, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we
will show the interpretation.
Dan. 2:5 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.
Dan. 2:6 But if ye show the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great
honour: therefore show me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
Dan. 2:7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation
Dan. 2:8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone
Dan. 2:9 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
show me the interpretation thereof.
Dan. 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can show the king's
matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
Dan. 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can show it before the king,
except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
Dan. 2:12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
Dan. 2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be
|(Link to more secrets of Daniel)
Rev 1:16And he had in his right hand seven stars:
|"In his hand seven stars"...
Dan. 2:14 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:
Dan. 2:15 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.
Dan. 2:16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the
king that he would give him time, and that he would show the king the interpretation.
Dan. 2:17 Then Daniel went to
his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
Dan. 2:18 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.
Dan. 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel
blessed the God of heaven.
Dan. 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom
and might are his:
Dan. 2:21 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:
Dan. 2:22 He revealeth the deep
and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness (of our ancient phylogenetic Unconscious Mind), and the light
(that manifests into our Consciousness) dwelleth (previously) with him.
Dan. 2:23 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.
Dan. 2:24 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 show unto the king the interpretation.
Dan. 2:25 Then Arioch, (the king's man and daniel's mentor
before the court), 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.
