Daniel 2:32-43

NLT 32 The head of the statue was made of fine gold. Its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs were bronze, NIV 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, NLT 33 its legs were iron, and its feet were a combination of iron and baked clay. NIV 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. NLT 34 As you watched, a rock was cut from a mountain, but not by human hands. It struck the feet of iron and clay, smashing them to bits. NIV 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. NLT 35 The whole statue was crushed into small pieces of iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold. Then the wind blew them away without a trace, like chaff on a threshing floor. But the rock that knocked the statue down became a great mountain that covered the whole earth. NIV 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth. NLT 36 “That was the dream. Now we will tell the king what it means. NIV 36 "This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. NLT 37 Your Majesty, you are the greatest of kings. The God of heaven has given you sovereignty, power, strength, and honor. NIV 37 You, O king, are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; NLT 38 He has made you the ruler over all the inhabited world and has put even the wild animals and birds under your control. You are the head of gold. NIV 38 in your hands he has placed mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds of the air. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold. NLT 39 “But after your kingdom comes to an end, another kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to take your place. After that kingdom has fallen, yet a third kingdom, represented by bronze, will rise to rule the world. NIV 39 "After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. NLT 40 Following that kingdom, there will be a fourth one, as strong as iron. That kingdom will smash and crush all previous empires, just as iron smashes and crushes everything it strikes. NIV 40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. NLT 41 The feet and toes you saw were a combination of iron and baked clay, showing that this kingdom will be divided. Like iron mixed with clay, it will have some of the strength of iron. NIV 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. NLT 42 But while some parts of it will be as strong as iron, other parts will be as weak as clay. NIV 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. NLT 43 This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But they will not hold together, just as iron and clay do not mix. NIV 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.
