Daniel 2:1-13
  • 1In the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his spirit was troubled, and his sleep left him.
  • 2Then the king commanded that the magicians, the enchanters, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans be summoned to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king.
  • 3And the king said to them, "I had a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream."
  • 4Then the Chaldeans said to the king in Aramaic, "O king, live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation."
  • 5The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, "The word from me is firm: if you do not make known to me the dream and its interpretation, you shall be torn limb from limb, and your houses shall be laid in ruins.
  • 6But if you show the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. Therefore show me the dream and its interpretation."
  • 7They answered a second time and said, "Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show its interpretation."
  • 8The king answered and said, "I know with certainty that you are trying to gain time, because you see that the word from me is firm--
  • 9if you do not make the dream known to me, there is but one sentence for you. You have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me till the times change. Therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me its interpretation."
  • 10The Chaldeans answered the king and said, "There is not a man on earth who can meet the king's demand, for no great and powerful king has asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean.
  • 11The thing that the king asks is difficult, and no one can show it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh."
  • 12Because of this the king was angry and very furious, and commanded that all the wise men of Babylon be destroyed.
  • 13So the decree went out, and the wise men were about to be killed; and they sought Daniel and his companions, to kill them.
