Daniel 2

LXX 1 In the second year of reign Nabuchodonosor dreamed a dream, and his spirit was amazed, and his sleep departed from him. NIV 1 In the second year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his mind was troubled and he could not sleep. LXX 2 And the king gave orders to call the enchanters, and the magicians, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, to declare to the king his dreams. And they came and stood before the king. NIV 2 So the king summoned the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers to tell him what he had dreamed. When they came in and stood before the king, LXX 3 And the king said to them, I have dreamed, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream. NIV 3 he said to them, “I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means. ” LXX 4 And the Chaldeans spoke to the king in the Syrian language, , O king, live for ever: do thou tell the dream to thy servants, and we will declare the interpretation. NIV 4 Then the astrologers answered the king, “May the king live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will interpret it.” LXX 5 The king answered the Chaldeans, The thing has departed from me: if ye do not make known to me the dream and the interpretation, ye shall be destroyed, and your houses shall be spoiled. NIV 5 The king replied to the astrologers, “This is what I have firmly decided: If you do not tell me what my dream was and interpret it, I will have you cut into pieces and your houses turned into piles of rubble. LXX 6 But if ye make known to me the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and presents and much honour: only tell me the dream, and the interpretation thereof. NIV 6 But if you tell me the dream and explain it, you will receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. So tell me the dream and interpret it for me.” LXX 7 They answered the second time, and said, Let the king tell the dream to his servants, and we will declare the interpretation. NIV 7 Once more they replied, “Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will interpret it.” LXX 8 And the king answered and said, I verily know that ye are trying to gain time, because ye see that the thing has gone from me. NIV 8 Then the king answered, “I am certain that you are trying to gain time, because you realize that this is what I have firmly decided: LXX 9 If then ye do not tell me the dream, I know that ye have concerted to utter before me a false and corrupt tale, until the time shall have past: tell me my dream, and I shall know that ye will also declare to me the interpretation thereof. NIV 9 If you do not tell me the dream, there is only one penalty for you. You have conspired to tell me misleading and wicked things, hoping the situation will change. So then, tell me the dream, and I will know that you can interpret it for me.” LXX 10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is no man upon the earth, who shall be able to make known the king's matter: forasmuch as no great king or ruler asks such a question of an enchanter, magician, or Chaldean. NIV 10 The astrologers answered the king, “There is no one on earth who can do what the king asks! No king, however great and mighty, has ever asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or astrologer. LXX 11 For the question which the king asks is difficult, and there is no one else who shall answer it before the king, but the gods, whose dwelling is not with any flesh. NIV 11 What the king asks is too difficult. No one can reveal it to the king except the gods, and they do not live among humans.” LXX 12 Then the king in rage and anger commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. NIV 12 This made the king so angry and furious that he ordered the execution of all the wise men of Babylon. LXX 13 So the decree went forth, and they began to slay the wise men; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to slay . NIV 13 So the decree was issued to put the wise men to death, and men were sent to look for Daniel and his friends to put them to death. LXX 14 Then Daniel answered counsel and prudence to Arioch the captain of the royal guard, who was gone forth to kill the wise men of Babylon; , NIV 14 When Arioch, the commander of the king’s guard, had gone out to put to death the wise men of Babylon, Daniel spoke to him with wisdom and tact. LXX 15 Chief magistrate of the king, wherefore has the preemptory command proceeded from the king? So Arioch made known the matter to Daniel. NIV 15 He asked the king’s officer, “Why did the king issue such a harsh decree?” Arioch then explained the matter to Daniel. LXX 16 And Daniel intreated the king to give him time, and that he might declare to the king the interpretation of it. NIV 16 At this, Daniel went in to the king and asked for time, so that he might interpret the dream for him. LXX 17 So Daniel went into his house, and made known the matter to Ananias, and Misael, and Azarias, his friends. NIV 17 Then Daniel returned to his house and explained the matter to his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. LXX 18 And they sought mercies from the God of heaven concerning this mystery; that Daniel and his friends might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. NIV 18 He urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that he and his friends might not be executed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. LXX 19 Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night; and Daniel blessed the God of heaven, and said, NIV 19 During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven LXX 20 May the name of God be blessed from everlasting and to everlasting: for wisdom and understanding are his. NIV 20 and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. LXX 21 And he changes times and seasons: he appoints kings, and removes , giving wisdom to the wise, and prudence to them that have understanding: NIV 21 He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. LXX 22 he reveals deep and secret ; knowing what is in darkness, and the light is with him. NIV 22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. LXX 23 I give thanks to thee, and praise , O God of my fathers, for thou has given me wisdom and power, and has made known to me the things which we asked of thee; and thou has made known to me the king's vision. NIV 23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.” LXX 24 And Daniel came to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wise men of Babylon, and said to him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon, but bring me in before the king, and I will declare the interpretation to the king. NIV 24 Then Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to execute the wise men of Babylon, and said to him, “Do not execute the wise men of Babylon. Take me to the king, and I will interpret his dream for him.” LXX 25 Then Arioch in haste brought in Daniel before the king, and said to him, I have found a man of the children of the captivity of Judea, who will declare the interpretation to the king. NIV 25 Arioch took Daniel to the king at once and said, “I have found a man among the exiles from Judah who can tell the king what his dream means.” LXX 26 And the king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Baltasar, Canst thou declare to me the dream which I saw, and the interpretation thereof? NIV 26 The king asked Daniel (also called Belteshazzar), “Are you able to tell me what I saw in my dream and interpret it?” LXX 27 And Daniel answered before the king, and said, The mystery which the king asks is not of the wise men, magicians, enchanters, soothsayers to declare to the king. NIV 27 Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, LXX 28 But there is a God in heaven revealing mysteries, and he has made known to king Nabuchodonosor what things must come to pass in the last days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are as follows, NIV 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these: LXX 29 O king: thy thoughts upon thy bed arose what must come to pass hereafter: and he that reveals mysteries has made known to thee what must come to pass. NIV 29 “As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. LXX 30 Moreover, this mystery has not been revealed to me by reason of wisdom which is in me beyond all living, but for the sake of making known the interpretation to the king, that thou mightest know the thoughts of thine heart. NIV 30 As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind. LXX 31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold an image: that image was great, and the appearance of it excellent, standing before thy face; and the form of it was terrible. NIV 31 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. LXX 32 an image, the head of which was of fine gold, its hands and breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, NIV 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, LXX 33 its legs of iron, its feet, part of iron and part of earthenware. NIV 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. LXX 34 Thou sawest until a stone was cut out of a mountain without hands, and it smote the image upon its feet of iron and earthenware, and utterly reduced them to powder. 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. LXX 35 Then once for all the earthenware, the iron, the brass, the silver, the gold, were ground to powder, and became as chaff from the summer threshingfloor; and the violence of the wind carried them away, and no place was found for them: and the stone which had smitten the image became a great mountain, and filled all the earth. NIV 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces 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. LXX 36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. NIV 36 “This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. LXX 37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given a powerful and strong and honourable kingdom, NIV 37 Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; LXX 38 in every place where the children of men dwell: and he has given into thine hand the wild beasts of the field, and the birds of the sky and the fish of the sea, and he has made thee lord of all. NIV 38 in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold. LXX 39 Thou art the head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, an a third kingdom which is the brass, which shall have dominion over all the earth; NIV 39 “After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. LXX 40 and a fourth kingdom, which shall be strong as iron: as iron beats to powder and subdues all things, so shall it beat to powder and subdue. 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. LXX 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and the toes, part of earthenware and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet there shall be in it of the strength of iron, as thou sawest the iron mixed with earthenware. 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. LXX 42 And the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of earthenware, part of the kingdom shall be strong, and of it shall be broken. NIV 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. LXX 43 Whereas thou sawest the iron mixed with earthenware, they shall be mingled with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave together, as the iron does not mix itself with earthenware. 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. LXX 44 And in the days of those kings the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and his kingdom shall not be left to another people, it shall beat to pieces and grind to powder all kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. NIV 44 “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. LXX 45 Whereas thou sawest that a stone was cut out of a mountain without hands, and it beat to pieces the earthenware, the iron, the brass, the silver, the gold; the great God has made known to the king what must happen hereafter: and the dream is true, and the interpretation thereof sure. NIV 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. “The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.” LXX 46 Then king Nabuchodonosor fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and gave orders to offer to him gifts and incense. NIV 46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. LXX 47 And the king answered and said to Daniel, Of a truth your God is a God of gods, and Lord of kings, who reveals mysteries; for thou has been able to reveal this mystery. NIV 47 The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.” LXX 48 And the king promoted Daniel, and gave him great and abundant gifts, and set him over the whole province of Babylon, and chief satrap over all the wise men of Babylon. NIV 48 Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men. LXX 49 And Daniel asked of the king, and he appointed Sedrach, Misach, and Abdenago, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel was in the king's palace. NIV 49 Moreover, at Daniel’s request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel himself remained at the royal court.
