During the night the mystery1 was revealed to Daniel in a vision.2 Then Daniel praised the God of heaven320
and said: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;4 wisdom and power5 are his.
He changes times and seasons;6 he sets up kings7 and deposes8 them. He gives wisdom9 to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.1022
He reveals deep and hidden things;11 he knows what lies in darkness,12 and light13 dwells with him.
I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers:14 You have given me wisdom15 and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.16"
