(3-98) Nabuchodonosor, the king, to all peoples, nations, and tongues, that dwell in all the earth, peace be multiplied unto you.
(3-99) The most high God hath wrought signs and wonders towards me. It hath seemed good to me, therefore, to publish
(3-100) His signs, because they are great: and his wonders, because they are mighty: and his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his power to all generations.
(4-1) I, Nabuchodonosor, was at rest in my house, and flourishing in my palace:
(4-2) I saw a dream that affrighted me: and my thoughts in my bed, and the visions of my head, troubled me.
(4-3) Then I set forth a decree, that all the wise men of Babylon should be brought in before me, and that they should shew me the interpretation of the dream.
(4-4) Then came in the diviners, the wise men, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers, and I told the dream before them: but they did not shew me the interpretation thereof.
(4-5) Till their colleague, Daniel, came in before me, whose name is Baltassar, according to the name of my god, who hath in him the spirit of the holy gods: and I told the dream before him.
(4-6) Baltassar, prince of the diviners, because I know that thou hast in thee the spirit of the holy gods, and that no secret is impossible to thee, tell me the visions of my dreams that I have seen, and the interpretation of them?
