Daniel 5:10-29 [ Verse 19 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
10 The queen entered the banquet hall F149 because of the words of the king and his nobles; the queen spoke and said, "O R238 king, live forever! Do not let your thoughts alarm you or your face F150 be pale. 11 "There is a man R239 in your kingdom in whom is a F151 spirit R240 of the holy gods; and in the days of your father, illumination, insight and wisdom like the wisdom of the gods were found in him. And King Nebuchadnezzar, your father, your father the R241 F152 king, appointed him chief of the magicians, F153 conjurers, Chaldeans F154 and diviners. 12 "This was because an extraordinary R242 spirit, knowledge and insight, interpretation of dreams, explanation of enigmas and solving of difficult problems were found in this Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar. R243 Let Daniel now be summoned and he will declare the interpretation." 13 Then Daniel was brought in before the king. The king spoke and said to Daniel, "Are you that Daniel who is one of the exiles R244 F155 from Judah, whom my father the king brought R245 from Judah? 14 "Now I have heard about you that a F156 spirit of the gods is in you, and that illumination, insight and extraordinary wisdom have been found in you. 15 "Just now the wise R246 men and the conjurers were brought in before me that they might read this inscription and make its interpretation known to me, but they could R247 not declare the interpretation of the message. F157 16 "But I personally have heard about you, that you are able to give interpretations and solve difficult problems. Now if you are able to read the inscription and make its interpretation R248 known to me, you will be clothed R249 with purple and wear a necklace of gold around your neck, and you will have authority as the third F158 ruler in the kingdom." 17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, "Keep F159 your gifts R250 for yourself or give your rewards to someone else; however, I will read the inscription to the king and make the interpretation known to him. 18 "O F160 king, the Most R251 High God granted R252 sovereignty, F161 grandeur, R253 glory and majesty to Nebuchadnezzar your father. 19 "Because of the grandeur which He bestowed on him, all the peoples, nations and men of every language F162 feared and trembled before him; whomever R254 he wished he killed and whomever he wished he spared alive; and whomever he wished he elevated and whomever he wished he humbled. 20 "But when his heart was lifted R255 up and his spirit became so proud R256 F163 that he behaved arrogantly, he was deposed R257 from his royal throne and his glory was taken away from him. 21 "He was also driven R258 away from mankind, F164 and his heart was made like that of beasts, and his dwelling place was with the wild R259 donkeys. He was given grass to eat like cattle, and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven until he recognized that the Most R260 High God is ruler over the realm of mankind and that He sets over it whomever He wishes. 22 "Yet you, his son, F165 Belshazzar, have not R261 humbled your heart, even F166 though you knew all this, 23 but you have exalted R262 yourself against the Lord R263 of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines have been drinking wine from them; and you have praised the gods R264 of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or understand. But the God in R265 whose hand are your life-breath and all your ways, R266 you have not glorified. 24 "Then the hand R267 F167 was sent from Him and this inscription was written out. 25 "Now this is the inscription that was written out: `MENE, F168 MENE, F168 TEKEL, F169 UPHARSIN.' F170 26 "This is the interpretation of the message: F171 `MENE'--God has numbered your kingdom and put R268 an end to it. 27 " `TEKEL'--you have been weighed R269 on the scales and found deficient. 28 " `PERES'--your kingdom has been divided and given over to the Medes R270 and Persians." F172 29 Then Belshazzar gave orders, and they clothed R271 Daniel with purple and put a necklace of gold around his neck, and issued a proclamation concerning him that he now had authority as the third F173 ruler in the kingdom.
