Daniel
5
1 Belshazzar 1113 the king 4430 made 5648 a great 7227 feast 3900 to a thousand 506 of his lords 7261, and drank 8355 wine 2562 before 6903 the thousand 506.
2 Belshazzar 1113, whiles he tasted 2942 the wine 2562, commanded 560 to bring 858 the golden 1722 and silver 3702 vessels 3984 which 1768 his father 2 Nebuchadnezzar 5020 had taken 5312 out of the temple 1965 which 1768 was in Jerusalem 3390; that the king 4430, and his princes 7261, his wives 7695, and his concubines 3904, might drink 8355 therein.
3 Then 116 they brought 858 the golden 1722 vessels 3984 that were taken 5312 out of the temple 1965 of the house 1005 of God 426 which 1768 was at Jerusalem 3390; and the king 4430, and his princes 7261, his wives 7695, and his concubines 3904, drank 8355 in them.
4 They drank 8355 wine 2562, and praised 7624 the gods 426 of gold 1722, and of silver 3702, of brass 5174, of iron 6523, of wood 636, and of stone 69.
5 ¶ In the same hour 8160 came 5312 forth 5312 fingers 677 of a man's 606 hand 3028, and wrote 3790 over 6903 against 6903 the candlestick 5043 upon the plaister 1528 of the wall 3797 of the king's 4430 palace 1965: and the king 4430 saw 2370 the part 6447 of the hand 3028 that wrote 3790.
6 Then 116 the king's 4430 countenance 2122 was changed 8133, and his thoughts 7476 troubled 927 him, so that the joints 7001 of his loins 2788 were loosed 8271, and his knees 755 smote 5368 one 1668 against another 1668.
7 The king 4430 cried 7123 aloud 2429 to bring 5924 in the astrologers 826, the Chaldeans 3779, and the soothsayers 1505. And the king 4430 spake 6032, and said 560 to the wise 2445 men of Babylon 895, Whosoever 3605 shall read 7123 this 1836 writing 3792, and shew 2324 me the interpretation 6591 thereof, shall be clothed 3848 with scarlet 711, and have a chain 2002 of gold 1722 about 5922 his neck 6676, and shall be the third 8523 ruler 7981 in the kingdom 4437.
8 Then 116 came 5954 in all 3606 the king's 4430 wise 2445 men: but they could 3546 not read 7123 the writing 3792, nor make known 3046 to the king 4430 the interpretation 6591 thereof.
9 Then 116 was king 4430 Belshazzar 1113 greatly 7690 troubled 927, and his countenance 2122 was changed 8133 in him, and his lords 7261 were astonied 2672.
10 Now the queen 4433 by reason 6903 of the words 4406 of the king 4430 and his lords 7261 came 5954 into the banquet 4961 house 1005: and the queen 4433 spake 6032 and said 560, O king 4430, live 2414 for ever 5957: let not thy thoughts 7476 trouble 927 thee, nor 408 let thy countenance 2122 be changed 8133:
11 There is a man 1400 in thy kingdom 4437, in whom 1768 is the spirit 7308 of the holy 6922 gods 426; and in the days 3118 of thy father 2 light 5094 and understanding 7924 and wisdom 2452, like the wisdom 2452 of the gods 426, was found 7912 in him; whom the king 4430 Nebuchadnezzar 5020 thy father 2, the king 4430, I say, thy father 2, made master 729 of the magicians 2749, astrologers 826, Chaldeans 3779, and soothsayers 1505;
12 Forasmuch as an excellent 3493 spirit 7308, and knowledge 998, and understanding 7924, interpreting 6591 of dreams 2493, and shewing 263 of hard 280 sentences 280, and dissolving 8271 of doubts 7001, were found 7912 in the same Daniel 1841, whom 1768 the king 4430 named 8036 Belteshazzar 1096: now 3705 let Daniel 1841 be called 7123, and he will shew 5046 the interpretation 6591.
13 Then 116 was Daniel 1841 brought 5954 in before 6925 the king 4430. And the king 4430 spake 6032 and said 560 unto Daniel 1841, Art thou that Daniel 1841, which 1768 art of the children 1123 of the captivity 1547 of Judah 3061, whom 1768 the king 4430 my father 2 brought 858 out of Jewry 3061?
14 I have even heard 8086 of thee, that the spirit 7308 of the gods 426 is in thee, and that light 5094 and understanding 7924 and excellent 3493 wisdom 2452 is found 7912 in thee.
15 And now 3705 the wise 2445 men, the astrologers 826, have been brought 5954 in before 6925 me, that they should read 7123 this 1836 writing 3792, and make known 3046 unto me the interpretation 6591 thereof: but they could 5346 not shew 2324 the interpretation 6591 of the thing 4406:
16 And I have heard 8086 of thee, that thou canst 3202 make interpretations 6591, and dissolve 8271 doubts 7001: now 3705 if 2006 thou canst 3202 read 7123 the writing 3792, and make known 3046 to me the interpretation 6591 thereof, thou shalt be clothed 3848 with scarlet 711, and have a chain 2002 of gold 1722 about 5922 thy neck 6676, and shalt be the third 8531 ruler 7981 in the kingdom 4437.
17 ¶ Then 116 Daniel 1841 answered 6032 and said 560 before 6925 the king 4430, Let thy gifts 4978 be to thyself, and give 3052 thy rewards 5023 to another 321; yet 1297 I will read 7123 the writing 3792 unto the king 4430, and make known 3046 to him the interpretation 6591.
18 O thou king 4430, the most 5943 high 5943 God 426 gave 3052 Nebuchadnezzar 5020 thy father 2 a kingdom 4437, and majesty 7238, and glory 3367, and honour 1923:
19 And for the majesty 7238 that he gave 3052 him, all 3606 people 5972, nations 524, and languages 3961, trembled 2112 and feared 1763 before him: whom 1768 he would 6634 he slew 6992; and whom 1768 he would 6634 he kept alive 2418; and whom 1768 he would 6634 he set 7313 up; and whom he would 6634 he put 8214 down 8214.
20 But when 1768 his heart 3825 was lifted 7313 up, and his mind 7307 hardened 8631 in pride 2103, he was deposed 5182 from his kingly 4437 throne 3764, and they took 5709 his glory 3367 from him:
21 And he was driven 2957 from the sons 1123 of men 606; and his heart 3825 was made 7737 like 5974 the beasts 2423, and his dwelling 4070 was with the wild 6167 asses 6167: they fed 2939 him with grass 8675 like oxen 8450, and his body 1655 was wet 6647 with the dew 2920 of heaven 8065; till 5704 he knew 3046 that the most 5943 high 5943 God 426 ruled 7990 in the kingdom 4437 of men 606, and that he appointeth 6966 over 5922 it whomsoever he will 6634.
22 And thou his son 1247, O Belshazzar 1113, hast not humbled 8214 thine heart 3825, though thou knewest 3046 all 3606 this 1836;
23 But hast lifted 7313 up thyself against 5922 the Lord 4756 of heaven 8065; and they have brought 858 the vessels 3984 of his house 1005 before 6925 thee, and thou, and thy lords 7261, thy wives 7695, and thy concubines 3904, have drunk 8355 wine 2562 in them; and thou hast praised 7624 the gods 426 of silver 3702, and gold 1722, of brass 5174, iron 6523, wood 636, and stone 69, which 1768 see 2370 not, nor 3809 hear 8086, nor 3809 know 3046: and the God 426 in whose 1768 hand 3028 thy breath 5396 is, and whose are all 3606 thy ways 735, hast thou not glorified 1922:
24 Then 116 was the part 6447 of the hand 3028 sent 7972 from him; and this 1836 writing 3792 was written 7560.
25 ¶ And this 1836 is the writing 3792 that was written 7560, MENE 4484, MENE 4484, TEKEL 8625, UPHARSIN 6537.
26 This 1836 is the interpretation 6591 of the thing 4406: MENE 4484; God 426 hath numbered 4483 thy kingdom 4437, and finished 8000 it.
27 TEKEL 8625; Thou art weighed 8625 in the balances 3976, and art found 7912 wanting 2627.
28 PERES 6537; Thy kingdom 4437 is divided 6537, and given 3052 to the Medes 4076 and Persians 6540.
29 Then 116 commanded 560 Belshazzar 1113, and they clothed 3848 Daniel 1841 with scarlet 711, and put a chain 2002 of gold 1722 about 5922 his neck 6676, and made a proclamation 3745 concerning 5922 him, that he should be the third 8531 ruler 7990 in the kingdom 4437.
30 ¶ In that night 3916 was Belshazzar 1113 the king 4430 of the Chaldeans 3779 slain 6992.
31 And Darius 1868 the Median 4077 took 6902 the kingdom 4437, being about threescore 8361 and two 8648 years 8140 old 1247.
