In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel saw a dream and visions in his mind as he lay on his bed; then he wrote the dream down and related the following summary of it. (Daniel 7:1)

Daniel said, "I was looking in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the great sea. (Daniel 7:2)

"And four great beasts were coming up from the sea, different from one another. (Daniel 7:3)

"The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle. I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human mind also was given to it. (Daniel 7:4)
