There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods1 in him. In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence and wisdom2 like that of the gods.3 King Nebuchadnezzar your father--your father the king, I say--appointed him chief of the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners.412
This man Daniel, whom the king called Belteshazzar,5 was found to have a keen mind and knowledge and understanding, and also the ability to interpret dreams, explain riddles6 and solve difficult problems.7 Call for Daniel, and he will tell you what the writing means.8"
So Daniel was brought before the king, and the king said to him, "Are you Daniel, one of the exiles my father the king brought from Judah?914
I have heard that the spirit of the gods10 is in you and that you have insight, intelligence and outstanding wisdom.11
