Daniel 4

LXX 1 I Nabuchodonosor was thriving in my house, and prospering. NIV 1 King Nebuchadnezzar, To the nations and peoples of every language, who live in all the earth: May you prosper greatly! LXX 2 I saw a vision, and it terrified me, and I was troubled on my bed, and the visions of my head troubled me. NIV 2 It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me. LXX 3 And I made a decree to bring in before me all the wise men of Babylon, that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream. NIV 3 How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; his dominion endures from generation to generation. LXX 4 So the enchanters, magicians, soothsayers, Chaldeans came in: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known to me the interpretation thereof; NIV 4 I, Nebuchadnezzar, was at home in my palace, contented and prosperous. LXX 5 until Daniel came, whose name is Baltasar, according to the name of my God, who has within him the Holy Spirit of God; to whom I said, NIV 5 I had a dream that made me afraid. As I was lying in bed, the images and visions that passed through my mind terrified me. LXX 6 O Baltasar, chief of the enchanters, of whom I know that the Holy Spirit of God is in thee, and no mystery is too hard for thee, hear the vision of my dream which I had, and tell me the interpretation of it. NIV 6 So I commanded that all the wise men of Babylon be brought before me to interpret the dream for me. LXX 7 I had a vision upon my bed; and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and its height was great. NIV 7 When the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners came, I told them the dream, but they could not interpret it for me. LXX 8 The tree grew large and strong, and its height reached to the sky, and its extent to the extremity of the whole earth: NIV 8 Finally, Daniel came into my presence and I told him the dream. (He is called Belteshazzar, after the name of my god, and the spirit of the holy gods is in him.) LXX 9 its leaves were fair, and its fruit abundant, and in it was meat for all; and under it the wild beasts of the field took shelter, and the birds of the sky lodged in the branches of it, and all flesh was fed of it. NIV 9 I said, “Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in you, and no mystery is too difficult for you. Here is my dream; interpret it for me. LXX 10 I beheld in the night vision upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven and cried aloud, and thus he said, NIV 10 These are the visions I saw while lying in bed: I looked, and there before me stood a tree in the middle of the land. Its height was enormous. LXX 11 Cut down the tree, and pluck off its branches, and shake off its leaves, and scatter its fruit: let the wild beasts be removed from under it, and the birds from its branches. NIV 11 The tree grew large and strong and its top touched the sky; it was visible to the ends of the earth. LXX 12 Only leave the stump of its roots in the earth, and with an iron and brass band; and it shall lie in the grass that is without and in the dew of heaven, and its portion with the wild beasts in the grass of the field. NIV 12 Its leaves were beautiful, its fruit abundant, and on it was food for all. Under it the wild animals found shelter, and the birds lived in its branches; from it every creature was fed. LXX 13 His heart shall be changed from that of man, and the heart of a wild beast shall be given to him; and seven times shall pass over him. NIV 13 “In the visions I saw while lying in bed, I looked, and there before me was a holy one, a messenger, coming down from heaven. LXX 14 The matter is by the decree of the watcher, and the demand is a word of the holy ones; that the living may known that the Lord is most high the kingdom of men, and he will give it to whomsoever he shall please, and will set up over it that which is set at nought of men. NIV 14 He called in a loud voice: ‘Cut down the tree and trim off its branches; strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the animals flee from under it and the birds from its branches. LXX 15 This is the vision which I king Nabuchodonosor saw: and do thou, Baltasar, declare the interpretation, for none of the wise men of my kingdom are able to shew me the interpretation of it: but thou, Daniel, art able; for the Holy Spirit of God is in thee. NIV 15 But let the stump and its roots, bound with iron and bronze, remain in the ground, in the grass of the field. “ ‘Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven, and let him live with the animals among the plants of the earth. LXX 16 Then Daniel, whose name is Baltasar, was amazed about one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. And Baltasar answered and said, lord, let the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation of it to thine enemies. NIV 16 Let his mind be changed from that of a man and let him be given the mind of an animal, till seven times pass by for him. LXX 17 The tree which thou sawest, that grew large and strong, whose height reached to the sky and its extent to all the earth; NIV 17 “ ‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.’ LXX 18 and whose leaves were flourishing, and its fruit abundant, (and it was meat for all; under it the wild beasts lodged, and the birds of the sky took shelter in its branches:) NIV 18 “This is the dream that I, King Nebuchadnezzar, had. Now, Belteshazzar, tell me what it means, for none of the wise men in my kingdom can interpret it for me. But you can, because the spirit of the holy gods is in you.” LXX 19 is thyself, O king; for thou art grown great and powerful, and thy greatness has increased and reached to heaven, and thy dominion to the ends of the earth. NIV 19 Then Daniel (also called Belteshazzar) was greatly perplexed for a time, and his thoughts terrified him. So the king said, “Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its meaning alarm you.” Belteshazzar answered, “My lord, if only the dream applied to your enemies and its meaning to your adversaries! LXX 20 And whereas the king saw a watcher and a holy one coming down from heaven, and he said, Strip the tree, and destroy it; only leave the stump of its roots in the ground, and with a band of iron and brass; and it shall lie in the grass that is without, and in the dew of heaven, and its portion shall be with wild beasts, until seven times have passed over it; NIV 20 The tree you saw, which grew large and strong, with its top touching the sky, visible to the whole earth, LXX 21 this is the interpretation of it, O king, and it is a decree of the Most High, which has come upon my lord the king. NIV 21 with beautiful leaves and abundant fruit, providing food for all, giving shelter to the wild animals, and having nesting places in its branches for the birds— LXX 22 And they shall drive thee forth from men, and thy dwelling shall be with wild beasts, and they shall feed thee with grass as an ox, and thou shall have thy lodging under the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou known that the Most High is Lord of the kingdom of men, and will give it to whom he shall please. NIV 22 Your Majesty, you are that tree! You have become great and strong; your greatness has grown until it reaches the sky, and your dominion extends to distant parts of the earth. LXX 23 And whereas they said, Leave the stumps of the roots of the tree; thy kingdom abides to thee from the time that thou shalt know the power of the heavens. NIV 23 “Your Majesty saw a holy one, a messenger, coming down from heaven and saying, ‘Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump, bound with iron and bronze, in the grass of the field, while its roots remain in the ground. Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven; let him live with the wild animals, until seven times pass by for him.’ LXX 24 Therefore, O king, let my counsel please thee, and atone for thy sins by alms, and iniquities by compassion on the poor: it may be God will be long-suffering to thy trespasses. NIV 24 “This is the interpretation, Your Majesty, and this is the decree the Most High has issued against my lord the king: LXX 25 All these things came upon king Nabuchodonosor. NIV 25 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox and be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes. LXX 26 After a twelvemonth, as he walked in his palace in Babylon, NIV 26 The command to leave the stump of the tree with its roots means that your kingdom will be restored to you when you acknowledge that Heaven rules. LXX 27 the king answered and said, Is not this great Babylon, which I have built for a royal residence, by the might of my power, for the honour of my glory? NIV 27 Therefore, Your Majesty, be pleased to accept my advice: Renounce your sins by doing what is right, and your wickedness by being kind to the oppressed. It may be that then your prosperity will continue.” LXX 28 While the word was yet in the king's mouth, there came a voice from heaven, , To thee, king Nabuchodonosor, they say, The kingdom has departed from thee. NIV 28 All this happened to King Nebuchadnezzar. LXX 29 And they drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the wild beasts of the field, and they shall feed thee with grass as an ox: and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the Most High is Lord of the kingdom of men, and he will give it to whomsoever he shall please. NIV 29 Twelve months later, as the king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, LXX 30 In the same hour the word was fulfilled upon Nabuchodonosor: and he was driven forth from men, and he ate grass as an ox, and his body was bathed with the dew of heaven, until his hairs were grown like lions' , and his nails as birds' . NIV 30 he said, “Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” LXX 31 And at the end of the time I Nabuchodonosor lifted up mine eyes to heaven, and my reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High, and praised him that lives for ever, and gave glory; for his dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom to all generations: NIV 31 Even as the words were on his lips, a voice came from heaven, “This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar: Your royal authority has been taken from you. LXX 32 and all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he does according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and there is none who shall withstand his power, and say to him, What has thou done? NIV 32 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.” LXX 33 At the same time my reason returned to me, and I came to the honour of my kingdom; and my form returned to me, and my princes, and my nobles, sought me, and I was established in my kingdom, and more abundant majesty was added to me. NIV 33 Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like the ox. His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird. LXX 34 Now therefore I Nabuchodonosor praise and greatly exalt and glorify the King of heaven; for all his works are true, and his paths are judgment: and all that walk in pride he is able to abase. NIV 34 At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.
