- 1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image R107 of gold, the height of which was sixty cubits F77 and its width six cubits; F77 he set it up on the plain of Dura in the province R108 of Babylon. 2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent word to assemble the satraps, R109 the prefects and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates and all the rulers of the provinces to come to the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. 3 Then the satraps, the prefects and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates and all the rulers of the provinces were assembled for the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 4 Then the herald loudly proclaimed: "To you the F78 command is given, O R110 peoples, nations and men of every language, F79 5 that at the moment you hear R111 the sound of the horn, flute, lyre, F80 trigon, F81 psaltery, F82 bagpipe and all kinds of music, you are to fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up. 6 "But whoever does not fall down and worship shall immediately F83 be cast R112 into the midst of a furnace R113 of blazing fire." 7 Therefore at that time, when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, flute, lyre, F84 trigon, psaltery, bagpipe and all kinds of music, all the peoples, nations and men of every language F85 fell down and worshiped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
