31Thou, O king,sawest ,a and behold a greatimage.Thisgreatimage, whose brightness was excellent,stoodbefore thee; and the form thereof was terrible .
This image'shead was of finegold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighsb of brass,33
His legs of iron, his feetpart of iron and part of clay.34
Thou sawesttill that a stone was cut outwithoutchands, which smote the imageupon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brakethem to pieces .
35Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to piecestogether, and became like the chaffof the summerthreshingfloors; and the windcarriedthemaway , thatnoplace was found for them: and the stone that smote the imagebecame a greatmountain, and filled the wholeearth.36This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.37Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom,power, and strength, and glory.38
And wheresoever the children of mendwell , the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all.Thou art this head of gold.39
And after thee shall ariseanotherkingdominferior to thee, and anotherthirdkingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.40
And the fourthkingdom shall bestrong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subduethall things: and asiron that breakethallthese, shall it break in pieces and bruise .
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes,part of potters'clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall bedivided ; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch asthousawest the ironmixed with miryclay.42
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall bepartlystrong, and partlybroken .d43
And whereas thou sawestironmixed with miryclay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shallnotcleaveoneetoanother,even as iron is notmixed with clay.44
And in the daysf of thesekings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall neverbedestroyed : and the kingdom shall not be left to otherpeople, but it shall break in pieces and consumeallthesekingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.45
Forasmuch asthousawest that the stone was cut out of the mountainwithoutghands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the greatGod hath made known to the kingwhat shall come to passhereafter : and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure .
