Daniel 2:32-43

MSG 32 The head of the statue was pure gold, the chest and arms were silver, the belly and hips 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, MSG 33 the legs were iron, and the feet were an iron-ceramic mixture. NIV 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. MSG 34 While you were looking at this statue, a stone cut out of a mountain by an invisible hand hit the statue, smashing its iron-ceramic feet. 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. MSG 35 Then the whole thing fell to pieces - iron, tile, bronze, silver, and gold, smashed to bits. It was like scraps of old newspapers in a vacant lot in a hot dry summer, blown every which way by the wind, scattered to oblivion. But the stone that hit the statue became a huge mountain, dominating the horizon. 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. MSG 36 This was your dream. NIV 36 “This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. MSG 37 You, O king, are the most powerful king on earth. The God of heaven has given you the works: rule, power, strength, and glory. NIV 37 Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; MSG 38 He has put you in charge of men and women, wild animals and birds, all over the world - you're the head ruler, you are the head of gold. 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. MSG 39 But your rule will be taken over by another kingdom, inferior to yours, and that one by a third, a bronze kingdom, but still ruling the whole land, NIV 39 “After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. MSG 40 and after that by a fourth kingdom, iron-like in strength. Just as iron smashes things to bits, breaking and pulverizing, it will bust up the previous kingdoms. 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. MSG 41 "But then the feet and toes that ended up as a mixture of ceramic and iron will deteriorate into a mongrel kingdom with some remains of iron in it. Just as the toes of the feet were part ceramic and part 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. MSG 42 it will end up a mixed bag of the breakable and unbreakable. NIV 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. MSG 43 That kingdom won't bond, won't hold together any more than iron and clay hold together. 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.
