Daniel 2:1-13 [ Verse 4 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Now in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had R33 F24 dreams; and his spirit was troubled and his sleep R34 left F25 him. 2 Then the king gave F26 orders to call in the magicians, R35 F27 the conjurers, the sorcerers and the Chaldeans F28 to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king. 3 The king said to them, "I had R36 F29 a dream and my spirit is F30 anxious to understand F31 the dream." 4 Then the Chaldeans spoke to the king in Aramaic: R37 F32 "O R38 king, live forever! Tell R39 the dream to your servants, and we will declare the interpretation." 5 The king replied to the Chaldeans, "The F33 command from me is firm: if you do not make known to me the dream and its interpretation, you will be torn R40 F34 limb from limb and your houses will be made a rubbish heap. 6 "But if you declare the dream and its interpretation, you will receive from me gifts R41 and a reward and great honor; therefore declare to me the dream and its interpretation." 7 They answered a second time and said, "Let the king tell R42 the dream to his servants, and we will declare the interpretation." 8 The king replied, "I know for certain that you are bargaining F35 for time, inasmuch as you have seen that the F36 command from me is firm, 9 that if you do not make the dream known to me, there is only one R43 decree F37 for you. For you have agreed together to speak lying and corrupt words F38 before me until the situation F39 is changed; therefore tell me the dream, that I may know R44 that you can declare to me its interpretation." 10 The Chaldeans answered the F40 king and said, "There is not a man on earth who could declare the matter for F41 the king, inasmuch as no great king or ruler has ever asked anything like this of any magician, R45 F42 conjurer or Chaldean. 11 "Moreover, the thing which the king demands is difficult, F43 and there is no one else who could declare it to F44 the king except gods, R46 whose dwelling R47 place is not with mortal flesh." 12 Because of this the king became indignant R48 and very furious and gave orders to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. 13 So the decree F45 went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they looked for Daniel R49 and his friends to kill F46 them.
