King James Version 1611 - 1769





Daniel 1: 1-21

1  In the third7969 year8141 of the reign4438 of Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah3063 came935 Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon894 unto Jerusalem,3389 and besieged6696 5921 it.

2  And the Lord136 gave5414 853 Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah3063 into his hand,3027 with part4480 7117 of the vessels3627 of the house1004 of God:430 which he carried into935 the land776 of Shinar8152 to the house1004 of his god;430 and he brought935 the vessels3627 into the treasure214 house1004 of his god.430

3  And the king4428 spoke559 unto Ashpenaz828 the master7227 of his eunuchs,5631 that he should bring935 certain of the children4480 1121 of Israel,3478 and of the king's seed,4480 2233 4410 and of4480 the princes;6579

4  Children3206 in whom834 was no369 3605 blemish,3971 but well favored,2896 4758 and skillful7919 in all3605 wisdom,2451 and cunning3045 in knowledge,1847 and understanding995 science,4093 and such834 as had ability3581 in them to stand5975 in the king's4428 palace,1964 and whom they might teach3925 the learning5612 and the tongue3956 of the Chaldeans.3778

5  And the king4428 appointed4487 them a daily3117 3117 provision1697 of the king's meat,4480 6598 4428 and of the wine4480 3196 which he drank:4960 so nourishing1431 them three7969 years,8141 that at the end4480 7117 thereof they might stand5975 before6440 the king.4428

6  Now among these were1961 of the children4480 1121 of Judah,3063 Daniel,1840 Hananiah,2608 Mishael,4332 and Azariah:5838

7  Unto whom the prince8269 of the eunuchs5631 gave7760 names:8034 for he gave7760 unto Daniel1840 the name of Belteshazzar;1095 and to Hananiah,2608 of Shadrach;7714 and to Mishael,4332 of Meshach;4335 and to Azariah,5838 of Abed-nego.5664

8  But Daniel1840 purposed7760 in5921 his heart3820 that834 he would not3808 defile himself1351 with the portion of the king's meat,6598 4428 nor with the wine3196 which he drank:4960 therefore he requested1245 of the prince4480 8269 of the eunuchs5631 that834 he might not3808 defile himself.1351

9  Now God430 had brought5414 853 Daniel1840 into favor2617 and tender love7356 with6440 the prince8269 of the eunuchs.5631

10  And the prince8269 of the eunuchs5631 said559 unto Daniel,1840 I589 fear3372 853 my lord113 the king,4428 who834 hath appointed4487 853 your meat3978 and your drink:4960 for834 why4100 should he see7200 853 your faces6440 worse liking2196 than4480 the children3206 which834 are of your sort?1524 then shall ye make me endanger2325 853 my head7218 to the king.4428

11  Then said559 Daniel1840 to413 Melzar,4453 whom834 the prince8269 of the eunuchs5631 had set4487 over5921 Daniel,1840 Hananiah,2608 Mishael,4332 and Azariah,5838

12  Prove5254 853 thy servants,5650 I beseech thee,4994 ten6235 days;3117 and let them give5414 us pulse2235 to eat,398 and water4325 to drink.8354

13  Then let our countenances4758 be looked upon7200 before6440 thee, and the countenance4758 of the children3206 that eat398 853 of the portion of the king's meat:6598 4428 and as834 thou seest,7200 deal6213 with5973 thy servants.5650

14  So he consented8085 to them in this2088 matter,1697 and proved5254 them ten6235 days.3117

15  And at the end4480 7117 of ten6235 days3117 their countenances4758 appeared7200 fairer2896 and fatter1277 in flesh1320 than4480 all3605 the children3206 which did eat398 853 the portion of the king's meat.6598 4428

16  Thus Melzar4453 took away5375 853 the portion of their meat,6598 and the wine3196 that they should drink;4960 and gave5414 them pulse.2235

17  As for these428 four702 children,3206 God430 gave5414 them knowledge4093 and skill7919 in all3605 learning5612 and wisdom:2451 and Daniel1840 had understanding995 in all3605 visions2377 and dreams.2472

18  Now at the end4480 7117 of the days3117 that834 the king4428 had said559 he should bring them in,935 then the prince8269 of the eunuchs5631 brought them in935 before6440 Nebuchadnezzar.5019

19  And the king4428 communed1696 with854 them; and among them all4480 3605 was found4672 none3808 like Daniel,1840 Hananiah,2608 Mishael,4332 and Azariah:5838 therefore stood5975 they before6440 the king.4428

20  And in all3605 matters1697 of wisdom2451 and understanding,998 that834 the king4428 inquired1245 of4480 them, he found4672 them ten6235 times3027 better than5921 all3605 the magicians2748 and astrologers825 that834 were in all3605 his realm.4438

21  And Daniel1840 continued1961 even unto5704 the first259 year8141 of king4428 Cyrus.3566

Daniel 2: 1-49

1  And in the second8147 year8141 of the reign4438 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 Nebuchadnezzar5019 dreamed2492 dreams,2472 wherewith his spirit7307 was troubled,6470 and his sleep8142 broke1961 from5921 him.

2  Then the king4428 commanded559 to call7121 the magicians,2748 and the astrologers,825 and the sorcerers,3784 and the Chaldeans,3778 for to show5046 the king4428 his dreams.2472 So they came935 and stood5975 before6440 the king.4428

3  And the king4428 said559 unto them, I have dreamed2492 a dream,2472 and my spirit7307 was troubled6470 to know3045 853 the dream.2472

4  Then spoke1696 the Chaldeans3778 to the king4428 in Syriac,762 O king,4430 live2418 forever:5957 tell560 thy servants5649 the dream,2493 and we will show2324 the interpretation.6591

5  The king4430 answered6032 and said560 to the Chaldeans,3779 The thing4406 is gone230 from4481 me: if2006 ye will not3809 make known3046 unto me the dream,2493 with the interpretation6591 thereof, ye shall be cut5648 in pieces,1917 and your houses1005 shall be made7761 a dunghill.5122

6  But if2006 ye show2324 the dream,2493 and the interpretation6591 thereof, ye shall receive6902 of4481 6925 me gifts4978 and rewards5023 and great7690 honor:3367 therefore3861 show2324 me the dream,2493 and the interpretation6591 thereof.

7  They answered6032 again8579 and said,560 Let the king4430 tell560 his servants5649 the dream,2493 and we will show2324 the interpretation6591 of it.

8  The king4430 answered6032 and said,560 I576 know3046 of4481 certainty3330 that1768 ye608 would gain2084 the time,5732 because3606 6903 1768 ye see2370 1768 the thing4406 is gone230 from4481 me.

9  But1768 if2006 ye will not3809 make known3046 unto me the dream,2493 there is but one2298 decree1882 for you: for ye have prepared2164 lying3538 and corrupt7844 words4406 to speak560 before6925 me, till5705 1768 the time5732 be changed:8133 therefore3861 tell560 me the dream,2493 and I shall know3046 that1768 ye can show2324 me the interpretation6591 thereof.

10  The Chaldeans3779 answered6032 before6925 the king,4430 and said,560 There is383 not3809 a man606 upon5922 the earth3007 that1768 can3202 show2324 the king's4430 matter:4406 therefore3606 6903 1768 there is no3809 3606 king,4430 lord,7229 nor ruler,7990 that asked7593 such things1836 at any3606 magician,2749 or astrologer,826 or Chaldean.3779

11  And it is a rare3358 thing4406 that1768 the king4430 requireth,7593 and there is383 none3809 other321 that1768 can show2324 it before6925 the king,4430 except3861 the gods,426 whose1768 dwelling4070 is383 not3809 with5974 flesh.1321

12  For this cause3606 6903 1836 the king4430 was angry1149 and very7690 furious,7108 and commanded560 to destroy7 all3606 the wise2445 men of Babylon.895

13  And the decree1882 went forth5312 that the wise2445 men should be slain;6992 and they sought1156 Daniel1841 and his fellows2269 to be slain.6992

14  Then116 Daniel1841 answered8421 with counsel5843 and wisdom2942 to Arioch746 the captain7229 of1768 the king's4430 guard,2877 which1768 was gone forth5312 to slay6992 the wise2445 men of Babylon:895

15  He answered6032 and said560 to Arioch746 the king's1768 4430 captain,7990 Why5922 4101 is the decree1882 so hasty2685 from4481 6925 the king?4430 Then116 Arioch746 made the thing known3046 4406 to Daniel.1841

16  Then Daniel1841 went in,5954 and desired1156 of4481 the king4430 that1768 he would give5415 him time,2166 and that he would show2324 the king4430 the interpretation.6591

17  Then116 Daniel1841 went236 to his house,1005 and made the thing known3046 4406 to Hananiah,2608 Mishael,4333 and Azariah,5839 his companions:2269

18  That they would desire1156 mercies7359 of4481 6925 the God426 of heaven8065 concerning5922 this1836 secret;7328 that1768 Daniel1841 and his fellows2269 should not3809 perish7 with5974 the rest7606 of the wise2445 men of Babylon.895

19  Then116 was the secret7328 revealed1541 unto Daniel1841 in a night1768 3916 vision.2376 Then116 Daniel1841 blessed1289 the God426 of heaven.8065

20  Daniel1841 answered6032 and said,560 Blessed1289 be1934 the name8036 of1768 God426 forever and ever:4481 5957 5705 5957 for1768 wisdom2452 and might1370 are his:

21  And he1932 changeth8133 the times5732 and the seasons:2166 he removeth5709 kings,4430 and setteth up6966 kings:4430 he giveth3052 wisdom2452 unto the wise,2445 and knowledge4486 to them that know3046 understanding:999

22  He1932 revealeth1541 the deep5994 and secret things:5642 he knoweth3046 what4101 is in the darkness,2816 and the light5094 dwelleth8271 with5974 him.

23  I576 thank3029 thee, and praise7624 thee, O thou God426 of my fathers,2 who1768 hast given3052 me wisdom2452 and might,1370 and hast made known3046 unto me now3705 what1768 we desired1156 of4481 thee: for1768 thou hast now made known3046 unto us the king's4430 matter.4406

24  Therefore3606 6903 1836 Daniel1841 went in5954 unto5922 Arioch,746 whom1768 the king4430 had ordained4483 to destroy7 the wise2445 men of Babylon:895 he went236 and said560 thus3652 unto him; Destroy7 not409 the wise2445 men of Babylon:895 bring me in5924 before6925 the king,4430 and I will show2324 unto the king4430 the interpretation.6591

25  Then116 Arioch746 brought in5954 Daniel1841 before6925 the king4430 in haste,927 and said560 thus3652 unto him, I have found7912 a man1400 of4481 the captives1123 1547 of1768 Judah,3061 that1768 will make known3046 unto the king4430 the interpretation.6591

26  The king4430 answered6032 and said560 to Daniel,1841 whose1768 name8036 was Belteshazzar,1096 Art383 thou able3546 to make known3046 unto me the dream2493 which1768 I have seen,2370 and the interpretation6591 thereof?

27  Daniel1841 answered6032 in the presence of6925 the king,4430 and said,560 The secret7328 which1768 the king4430 hath demanded7593 cannot3202 3809 the wise2445 men, the astrologers,826 the magicians,2749 the soothsayers,1505 show2324 unto the king;4430

28  But1297 there is383 a God426 in heaven8065 that revealeth1541 secrets,7328 and maketh known3046 to the king4430 Nebuchadnezzar5020 what4101 1768 shall be1934 in the latter320 days.3118 Thy dream,2493 and the visions2376 of thy head7217 upon5922 thy bed,4903 are these;1836

29  As for thee,607 O king,4430 thy thoughts7476 came5559 into thy mind upon5922 thy bed,4903 what4101 1768 should come to pass1934 hereafter:311 1836 and he that revealeth1541 secrets7328 maketh known3046 to thee what4101 1768 shall come to pass.1934

30  But as for me,576 this1836 secret7328 is not3809 revealed1541 to me for any wisdom2452 that1768 I have383 more than4481 any3606 living,2417 but3861 for their sakes5922 1701 that1768 shall make known3046 the interpretation6591 to the king,4430 and that thou mightest know3046 the thoughts7476 of thy heart.3825

31  Thou,607 O king,4430 sawest,2370 1934 and behold431 a2298 great7690 image.6755 This1797 great7229 image,6755 whose brightness2122 was excellent,3493 stood6966 before6903 thee; and the form7299 thereof was terrible.1763

32  This1932 image's6755 head7217 was of1768 fine2869 gold,1722 his breast2306 and his arms1872 of1768 silver,3702 his belly4577 and his thighs3410 of1768 brass,5174

33  His legs8243 of1768 iron,6523 his feet7271 part4481 of1768 iron6523 and part4481 of1768 clay.2635

34  Thou sawest2370 1934 till5705 that1768 a stone69 was cut out1505 without1768 3809 hands,3028 which smote4223 the image6755 upon5922 his feet7271 that were of1768 iron6523 and clay,2635 and broke them to pieces.1855 1994

35  Then116 was the iron,6523 the clay,2635 the brass,5174 the silver,3702 and the gold,1722 broken to pieces1751 together,2298 and became1934 like the chaff5784 of4481 the summer7007 threshingfloors;147 and the wind7308 carried them away,5376 1994 that no3809 3606 place870 was found7912 for them: and the stone69 that1768 smote4223 the image6755 became1934 a great7229 mountain,2906 and filled4391 the whole3606 earth.772

36  This1836 is the dream;2493 and we will tell560 the interpretation6591 thereof before6925 the king.4430

37  Thou,607 O king,4430 art a king4430 of kings:4430 for1768 the God426 of heaven8065 hath given3052 thee a kingdom,4437 power,2632 and strength,8632 and glory.3367

38  And wheresoever3606 1768 the children1123 of men606 dwell,1753 the beasts2423 of the field1251 and the fowls5776 of the heaven8065 hath he given3052 into thine hand,3028 and hath made thee ruler7981 over them all.3606 Thou607 art this1932 head7217 of1768 gold.1722

39  And after870 thee shall arise6966 another317 kingdom4437 inferior772 to4481 thee, and another317 third8523 kingdom4437 of1768 brass,5174 which1768 shall bear rule7981 over all3606 the earth.772

40  And the fourth7244 kingdom4437 shall be1934 strong8624 as iron:6523 forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 iron6523 breaketh in pieces1855 and subdueth2827 all3606 things: and as iron6523 that1768 breaketh7490 all3606 these,459 shall it break in pieces1855 and bruise.7490

41  And whereas1768 thou sawest2370 the feet7271 and toes,677 part4481 of1768 potters'6353 clay,2635 and part4481 of iron,6523 the kingdom4437 shall be1934 divided;6386 but there shall be1934 in it of4481 the strength5326 of1768 the iron,6523 forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 thou sawest2370 the iron6523 mixed6151 with miry2917 clay.2635

42  And as the toes677 of the feet7271 were part4481 of iron,6523 and part4481 of clay,2635 so the kingdom4437 shall be1934 partly4481 7118 strong,8624 and partly4481 broken.8406

43  And whereas1768 thou sawest2370 iron6523 mixed6151 with miry2917 clay,2635 they shall1934 mingle themselves6151 with the seed2234 of men:606 but they shall1934 not3809 cleave1693 one1836 to5974 another,1836 even as1888 1768 iron6523 is not3809 mixed6151 with5974 clay.2635

44  And in the days3118 of1768 these581 kings4430 shall the God426 of heaven8065 set up6966 a kingdom,4437 which1768 shall never3809 5957 be destroyed:2255 and the kingdom4437 shall not3809 be left7662 to other321 people,5972 but it shall break in pieces1855 and consume5487 all3606 these459 kingdoms,4437 and it1932 shall stand6966 forever.5957

45  Forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 thou sawest2370 that1768 the stone69 was cut out1505 of the mountain4481 2906 without1768 3809 hands,3028 and that it broke in pieces1855 the iron,6523 the brass,5174 the clay,2635 the silver,3702 and the gold;1722 the great7229 God426 hath made known3046 to the king4430 what4101 1768 shall come to pass1934 hereafter:311 1836 and the dream2493 is certain,3330 and the interpretation6591 thereof sure.540

46  Then116 the king4430 Nebuchadnezzar5020 fell5308 upon5922 his face,600 and worshiped5457 Daniel,1841 and commanded560 that they should offer5260 an oblation4061 and sweet odors5208 unto him.

47  The king4430 answered6032 unto Daniel,1841 and said,560 Of4481 a truth7187 it is, that1768 your God426 is a God426 of gods,426 and a Lord4756 of kings,4430 and a revealer1541 of secrets,7328 seeing1768 thou couldest3202 reveal1541 this1836 secret.7328

48  Then116 the king4430 made Daniel a great man,7236 1841 and gave3052 him many7690 great7260 gifts,4978 and made him ruler7981 over5922 the whole3606 province4083 of Babylon,895 and chief7229 of the governors5460 over5922 all3606 the wise2445 men of Babylon.895

49  Then Daniel1841 requested1156 of4481 the king,4430 and he set4483 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 over5922 the affairs5673 of1768 the province4083 of Babylon:895 but Daniel1841 sat in the gate8651 of the king.4430

Daniel 3: 1-30

1  Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 made5648 an image6755 of1768 gold,1722 whose height7314 was threescore8361 cubits,521 and the breadth6613 thereof six8353 cubits:521 he set it up6966 in the plain1236 of Dura,1757 in the province4083 of Babylon.895

2  Then Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 sent7972 to gather together3673 the princes,324 the governors,5460 and the captains,6347 the judges,148 the treasurers,1411 the counselors,1884 the sheriffs,8614 and all3606 the rulers7984 of the provinces,4083 to come858 to the dedication2597 of the image6755 which1768 Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 had set up.6966

3  Then116 the princes,324 the governors,5460 and captains,6347 the judges,148 the treasurers,1411 the counselors,1884 the sheriffs,8614 and all3606 the rulers7984 of the provinces,4083 were gathered together3673 unto the dedication2597 of the image6755 that1768 Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 had set up;6966 and they stood6966 before6903 the image6755 that1768 Nebuchadnezzar5020 had set up.6966

4  Then a herald3744 cried7123 aloud,2429 To you it is commanded,560 O people,5972 nations,524 and languages,3961

5  That at what1768 time5732 ye hear8086 the sound7032 of the cornet,7162 flute,4953 harp,7030 sackbut,5443 psaltery,6460 dulcimer,5481 and all3606 kinds2178 of music,2170 ye fall down5308 and worship5457 the golden1722 image6755 that1768 Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 hath set up:6966

6  And whoso4479 1768 falleth not down5308 3809 and worshipeth5457 shall the same hour8160 be cast7412 into the midst1459 of a burning3345 fiery5135 furnace.861

7  Therefore3606 6903 1836 at that time,2166 when1768 all3606 the people5972 heard8086 the sound7032 of the cornet,7162 flute,4953 harp,7030 sackbut,5443 psaltery,6460 and all3606 kinds2178 of music,2170 all3606 the people,5972 the nations,524 and the languages,3961 fell down5308 and worshiped5457 the golden1722 image6755 that1768 Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 had set up.6966

8  Wherefore3606 6903 1836 at that time2166 certain1400 Chaldeans3779 came near,7127 and accused399 7170 the Jews.1768 3062

9  They spoke6032 and said560 to the king4430 Nebuchadnezzar,5020 O king,4430 live2418 forever.5957

10  Thou,607 O king,4430 hast made7761 a decree,2942 that1768 every3606 man606 that1768 shall hear8086 the sound7032 of the cornet,7162 flute,4953 harp,7030 sackbut,5443 psaltery,6460 and dulcimer,5481 and all3606 kinds2178 of music,2170 shall fall down5308 and worship5457 the golden1722 image:6755

11  And whoso4479 1768 falleth not down5308 3809 and worshipeth,5457 that he should be cast7412 into the midst1459 of a burning3345 fiery5135 furnace.861

12  There are383 certain1400 Jews3062 whom1768 thou hast set4483 over5922 the affairs5673 of the province4083 of Babylon,895 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego;5665 these479 men,1400 O king,4430 have not3809 regarded7761 2942 5922 thee: they serve6399 not3809 thy gods,426 nor3809 worship5457 the golden1722 image6755 which1768 thou hast set up.6966

13  Then116 Nebuchadnezzar5020 in his rage7266 and fury2528 commanded560 to bring858 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego.5665 Then116 they brought858 these479 men1400 before6925 the king.4430

14  Nebuchadnezzar5020 spoke6032 and said560 unto them, Is it true,6656 O Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 do383 not3809 ye serve6399 my gods,426 nor3809 worship5457 the golden1722 image6755 which1768 I have set up?6966

15  Now3705 if2006 ye be383 ready6263 that1768 at what1768 time5732 ye hear8086 the sound7032 of the cornet,7162 flute,4953 harp,7030 sackbut,5443 psaltery,6460 and dulcimer,5481 and all3606 kinds2178 of music,2170 ye fall down5308 and worship5457 the image6755 which1768 I have made;5648 well: but if2006 ye worship5457 not,3809 ye shall be cast7412 the same hour8160 into the midst1459 of a burning3345 fiery5135 furnace;861 and who4479 is that1932 God426 that1768 shall deliver7804 you out of4481 my hands?3028

16  Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 answered6032 and said560 to the king,4430 O Nebuchadnezzar,5020 we586 are not3809 careful2818 to answer8421 thee in5922 this1836 matter.6600

17  If2006 it be383 so, our God426 whom1768 we586 serve6399 is able3202 to deliver7804 us from4481 the burning3345 fiery5135 furnace,861 and he will deliver7804 us out of4481 thine hand,3028 O king.4430

18  But if2006 not,3809 be1934 it known3046 unto thee, O king,4430 that1768 we will383 not3809 serve6399 thy gods,426 nor3809 worship5457 the golden1722 image6755 which1768 thou hast set up.6966

19  Then116 was Nebuchadnezzar5020 full4391 of fury,2528 and the form6755 of his visage600 was changed8133 against5922 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego:5665 therefore he spoke,6032 and commanded560 that they should heat228 the furnace861 one2298 seven times7655 more5922 than1768 it was wont2370 to be heated.228

20  And he commanded560 the most mighty1401 2429 men1400 that1768 were in his army2429 to bind3729 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 and to cast7412 them into the burning3345 fiery5135 furnace.861

21  Then116 these479 men1400 were bound3729 in their coats,5622 their hosen,6361 and their hats,3737 and their other garments,3831 and were cast7412 into the midst1459 of the burning3345 fiery5135 furnace.861

22  Therefore3606 6903 1836 because4481 1768 the king's4430 commandment4406 was urgent,2685 and the furnace861 exceeding3493 hot,228 the flame7631 of1768 the fire5135 slew6992 those479 men1400 that1768 took up5267 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego.5665

23  And these479 three8532 men,1400 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 fell down5308 bound3729 into the midst1459 of the burning3345 fiery5135 furnace.861

24  Then116 Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king4430 was astonished,8429 and rose up6966 in haste,927 and spoke,6032 and said560 unto his counselors,1907 Did not3809 we cast7412 three8532 men1400 bound3729 into the midst1459 of the fire?5135 They answered6032 and said560 unto the king,4430 True,3330 O king.4430

25  He answered6032 and said,560 Lo,1888 I576 see2370 four703 men1400 loose,8271 walking1981 in the midst1459 of the fire,5135 and they have383 no3809 hurt;2257 and the form7299 of1768 the fourth7244 is like1821 the Son1247 of God.426

26  Then116 Nebuchadnezzar5020 came near7127 to the mouth8651 of the burning3345 fiery5135 furnace,861 and spoke,6032 and said,560 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 ye servants5649 of1768 the most high5943 God,426 come forth,5312 and come858 hither. Then116 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 came forth5312 of4481 the midst1459 of the fire.5135

27  And the princes,324 governors,5460 and captains,6347 and the king's4430 counselors,1907 being gathered together,3673 saw2370 these479 men,1400 upon whose1768 bodies1655 the fire5135 had no power,7981 3809 nor3809 was a hair8177 of their head7217 singed,2761 neither3809 were their coats5622 changed,8133 nor3809 the smell7382 of fire5135 had passed5709 on them.

28  Then Nebuchadnezzar5020 spoke,6032 and said,560 Blessed1289 be the God426 of1768 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 who1768 hath sent7972 his angel,4398 and delivered7804 his servants5649 that1768 trusted7365 in5922 him, and have changed8133 the king's4430 word,4406 and yielded3052 their bodies,1655 that1768 they might not3809 serve6399 nor3809 worship5457 any3606 god,426 except3861 their own God.426

29  Therefore I make4481 7761 a decree,2942 That1768 every3606 people,5972 nation,524 and language,3961 which1768 speak560 any thing amiss7955 against5922 the God426 of1768 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 shall be cut5648 in pieces,1917 and their houses1005 shall be made7739 a dunghill:5122 because3606 6903 1768 there is383 no3809 other321 God426 that1768 can3202 deliver5338 after this sort.1836

30  Then116 the king4430 promoted6744 Shadrach,7715 Meshach,4336 and Abed-nego,5665 in the province4083 of Babylon.895

Daniel 4: 1-37

1  Nebuchadnezzar5020 the king,4430 unto all3606 people,5972 nations,524 and languages,3961 that1768 dwell1753 in all3606 the earth;772 Peace8001 be multiplied7680 unto you.

2  I thought it good8232 6925 to show2324 the signs852 and wonders8540 that1768 the high5943 God426 hath wrought5648 toward5974 me.

3  How4101 great7260 are his signs!852 and how4101 mighty8624 are his wonders!8540 his kingdom4437 is an everlasting5957 kingdom,4437 and his dominion7985 is from5974 generation1859 to generation.1859

4  I576 Nebuchadnezzar5020 was1934 at rest7954 in mine house,1005 and flourishing7487 in my palace:1965

5  I saw2370 a dream2493 which made me afraid,1763 and the thoughts2031 upon5922 my bed4903 and the visions2376 of my head7217 troubled927 me.

6  Therefore made4481 7761 I a decree2942 to bring in5924 all3606 the wise2445 men of Babylon895 before6925 me, that1768 they might make known3046 unto me the interpretation6591 of the dream.2493

7  Then116 came in5954 the magicians,2749 the astrologers,826 the Chaldeans,3779 and the soothsayers:1505 and I576 told560 the dream2493 before6925 them; but they did not3809 make known3046 unto me the interpretation6591 thereof.

8  But at5705 the last318 Daniel1841 came in5954 before6925 me, whose1768 name8036 was Belteshazzar,1096 according to the name8036 of my god,426 and in whom1768 is the spirit7308 of the holy6922 gods:426 and before6925 him I told560 the dream,2493 saying,

9  O Belteshazzar,1096 master7229 of the magicians,2749 because1768 I576 know3046 that1768 the spirit7308 of the holy6922 gods426 is in thee, and no3809 3606 secret7328 troubleth598 thee, tell560 me the visions2376 of my dream2493 that1768 I have seen,2370 and the interpretation6591 thereof.

10  Thus were the visions2376 of mine head7217 in5922 my bed;4903 I saw,1934 2370 and behold431 a tree363 in the midst1459 of the earth,772 and the height7314 thereof was great.7690

11  The tree363 grew,7236 and was strong,8631 and the height7314 thereof reached4291 unto heaven,8065 and the sight2379 thereof to the end5491 of all3606 the earth:772

12  The leaves6074 thereof were fair,8209 and the fruit4 thereof much,7690 and in it was meat4203 for all:3606 the beasts2423 of the field1251 had shadow2927 under8460 it, and the fowls6853 of the heaven8065 dwelt1753 in the boughs6056 thereof, and all3606 flesh1321 was fed2110 of4481 it.

13  I saw1934 2370 in the visions2376 of my head7217 upon5922 my bed,4903 and, behold,431 a watcher5894 and a holy one6922 came down5182 from4481 heaven;8065

14  He cried7123 aloud,2429 and said560 thus,3652 Hew down1414 the tree,363 and cut off7113 his branches,6056 shake off5426 his leaves,6074 and scatter921 his fruit:4 let the beasts2423 get away5111 from4481 under8479 it, and the fowls6853 from4481 his branches:6056

15  Nevertheless1297 leave7662 the stump6136 of his roots8330 in the earth,772 even with a band613 of1768 iron6523 and brass,5174 in the tender grass1883 of1768 the field;1251 and let it be wet6647 with the dew2920 of heaven,8065 and let his portion2508 be with5974 the beasts2423 in the grass6211 of the earth:772

16  Let his heart3825 be changed8133 from4481 man's,606 and let a beast's2423 heart3825 be given3052 unto him; and let seven7655 times5732 pass2499 over5922 him.

17  This matter6600 is by the decree1510 of the watchers,5894 and the demand7595 by the word3983 of the holy ones:6922 to5705 the intent1701 that1768 the living2417 may know3046 that1768 the most High5943 ruleth7990 in the kingdom4437 of men,606 and giveth5415 it to whomsoever4479 1768 he will,6634 and setteth up6966 over5922 it the basest8215 of men.606

18  This1836 dream2493 I576 king4430 Nebuchadnezzar5020 have seen.2370 Now thou,607 O Belteshazzar,1096 declare560 the interpretation6591 thereof, forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 all3606 the wise2445 men of my kingdom4437 are not able3202 3809 to make known3046 unto me the interpretation:6591 but thou607 art able;3546 for1768 the spirit7308 of the holy6922 gods426 is in thee.

19  Then116 Daniel,1841 whose1768 name8036 was Belteshazzar,1096 was astonished8075 for one2298 hour,8160 and his thoughts7476 troubled927 him. The king4430 spoke,6032 and said,560 Belteshazzar,1096 let not409 the dream,2493 or the interpretation6591 thereof, trouble927 thee. Belteshazzar1096 answered6032 and said,560 My lord,4756 the dream2493 be to them that hate8131 thee, and the interpretation6591 thereof to thine enemies.6146

20  The tree363 that1768 thou sawest,2370 which1768 grew,7236 and was strong,8631 whose height7314 reached4291 unto the heaven,8065 and the sight2379 thereof to all3606 the earth;772

21  Whose leaves6074 were fair,8209 and the fruit4 thereof much,7690 and in it was meat4203 for all;3606 under8460 which the beasts2423 of the field1251 dwelt,1753 and upon whose branches6056 the fowls6853 of the heaven8065 had their habitation:7932

22  It1932 is thou,607 O king,4430 that1768 art grown7236 and become strong:8631 for thy greatness7238 is grown,7236 and reacheth4291 unto heaven,8065 and thy dominion7985 to the end5491 of the earth.772

23  And whereas1768 the king4430 saw2370 a watcher5894 and a holy one6922 coming down5182 from4481 heaven,8065 and saying,560 Hew the tree down,1414 363 and destroy2255 it; yet1297 leave7662 the stump6136 of the roots8330 thereof in the earth,772 even with a band613 of1768 iron6523 and brass,5174 in the tender grass1883 of1768 the field;1251 and let it be wet6647 with the dew2920 of heaven,8065 and let his portion2508 be with5974 the beasts2423 of the field,1251 till5705 1768 seven7655 times5732 pass2499 over5922 him;

24  This1836 is the interpretation,6591 O king,4430 and this1932 is the decree1510 of the most High,5943 which1768 is come4291 upon5922 my lord4756 the king:4430

25  That they shall drive2957 thee from4481 men,606 and thy dwelling4070 shall be1934 with5974 the beasts2423 of the field,1251 and they shall make thee to eat2939 grass6211 as oxen,8450 and they shall wet6647 thee with the dew4481 2920 of heaven,8065 and seven7655 times5732 shall pass2499 over5922 thee, till5705 1768 thou know3046 that1768 the most High5943 ruleth7990 in the kingdom4437 of men,606 and giveth5415 it to whomsoever4479 1768 he will.6634

26  And whereas1768 they commanded560 to leave7662 the stump6136 of1768 the tree363 roots;8330 thy kingdom4437 shall be sure7011 unto thee, after that4481 1768 thou shalt have known3046 that1768 the heavens8065 do rule.7990

27  Wherefore,3861 O king,4430 let my counsel4431 be acceptable8232 unto5922 thee, and break6562 off thy sins2408 by righteousness,6665 and thine iniquities5758 by showing mercy2604 to the poor;6033 if2006 it may be1934 a lengthening754 of thy tranquillity.7963

28  All this3606 came4291 upon5922 the king4430 Nebuchadnezzar.5020

29  At the end7118 of twelve8648 6236 months3393 he walked1934 1981 in5922 the palace1965 of the kingdom4437 of1768 Babylon.895

30  The king4430 spoke,6032 and said,560 Is not3809 this1668 great7229 Babylon,895 that1768 I576 have built1124 for the house1005 of the kingdom4437 by the might8632 of my power,2632 and for the honor3367 of my majesty?1923

31  While5751 the word4406 was in the king's4430 mouth,6433 there fell5308 a voice7032 from4481 heaven,8065 saying, O king4430 Nebuchadnezzar,5020 to thee it is spoken;560 The kingdom4437 is departed5709 from4481 thee.

32  And they shall drive2957 thee from4481 men,606 and thy dwelling4070 shall be with5974 the beasts2423 of the field:1251 they shall make thee to eat2939 grass6211 as oxen,8450 and seven7655 times5732 shall pass2499 over5922 thee, until5705 1768 thou know3046 that1768 the most High5943 ruleth7990 in the kingdom4437 of men,606 and giveth5415 it to whomsoever4479 1768 he will.6634

33  The same hour8160 was the thing4406 fulfilled5487 upon5922 Nebuchadnezzar:5020 and he was driven2957 from4481 men,606 and did eat399 grass6211 as oxen,8450 and his body1655 was wet6647 with the dew4481 2920 of heaven,8065 till5705 1768 his hairs8177 were grown7236 like eagles'5403 feathers, and his nails2953 like birds'6853 claws.

34  And at the end7118 of the days3118 I576 Nebuchadnezzar5020 lifted up5191 mine eyes5870 unto heaven,8065 and mine understanding4486 returned8421 unto5922 me, and I blessed1289 the most High,5943 and I praised7624 and honored1922 him that liveth2417 forever,5957 whose1768 dominion7985 is an everlasting5957 dominion,7985 and his kingdom4437 is from5974 generation1859 to generation:1859

35  And all3606 the inhabitants1753 of the earth772 are reputed2804 as nothing:3809 and he doeth5648 according to his will6634 in the army2429 of heaven,8065 and among the inhabitants1753 of the earth:772 and none3809 can383 stay4223 his hand,3028 or say560 unto him, What4101 doest5648 thou?

36  At the same time2166 my reason4486 returned8421 unto5922 me; and for the glory3367 of my kingdom,4437 mine honor1923 and brightness2122 returned8421 unto5922 me; and my counselors1907 and my lords7261 sought1156 unto me; and I was established8627 in5922 my kingdom,4437 and excellent3493 majesty7238 was added3255 unto me.

37  Now3705 I576 Nebuchadnezzar5020 praise7624 and extol7313 and honor1922 the King4430 of heaven,8065 all3606 whose1768 works4567 are truth,7187 and his ways735 judgment:1780 and those1768 that walk1981 in pride1467 he is able3202 to abase.8214

Daniel 5: 1-31

1  Belshazzar1113 the king4430 made5648 a great7229 feast3900 to a thousand506 of his lords,7261 and drank8355 wine2562 before6903 the thousand.506

2  Belshazzar,1113 while he tasted2942 the wine,2562 commanded560 to bring858 the golden1722 and silver3702 vessels3984 which1768 his father2 Nebuchadnezzar5020 had taken out5312 of4481 the temple1965 which1768 was in Jerusalem;3390 that the king,4430 and his princes,7261 his wives,7695 and his concubines,3904 might drink8355 therein.

3  Then116 they brought858 the golden1722 vessels3984 that1768 were taken out5312 of4481 the temple1965 of1768 the house1005 of God426 which1768 was at Jerusalem;3390 and the king,4430 and his princes,7261 his wives,7695 and his concubines,3904 drank8355 in them.

4  They drank8355 wine,2562 and praised7624 the gods426 of gold,1722 and of silver,3702 of brass,5174 of iron,6523 of wood,636 and of stone.69

5  In the same hour8160 came forth5312 fingers677 of1768 a man's606 hand,3028 and wrote3790 over against6903 the candlestick5043 upon5922 the plaster1528 of1768 the wall3797 of1768 the king's4430 palace:1965 and the king4430 saw2370 the part6447 of the hand3028 that1768 wrote.3790

6  Then116 the king's4430 countenance2122 was changed,8133 and his thoughts7476 troubled927 him, so that the joints7001 of his loins2783 were loosed,8271 and his knees755 smote5368 one1668 against another.1668

7  The king4430 cried7123 aloud2429 to bring in5924 the astrologers,826 the Chaldeans,3779 and the soothsayers.1505 And the king4430 spoke,6032 and said560 to the wise2445 men of Babylon,895 Whosoever3606 606 1768 shall read7123 this1836 writing,3792 and show2324 me the interpretation6591 thereof, shall be clothed3848 with scarlet,711 and have a chain2002 of1768 gold1722 about5922 his neck,6676 and shall be the third ruler7981 8523 in the kingdom.4437

8  Then116 came in5954 all3606 the king's4430 wise2445 men: but they could3546 not3809 read7123 the writing,3792 nor make known3046 to the king4430 the interpretation6591 thereof.

9  Then116 was king4430 Belshazzar1113 greatly7690 troubled,927 and his countenance2122 was changed8133 in5922 him, and his lords7261 were astonished.7672

10  Now the queen,4433 by reason of6903 the words4406 of the king4430 and his lords,7261 came5954 into the banquet4961 house:1005 and the queen4433 spoke6032 and said,560 O king,4430 live2418 forever:5957 let not409 thy thoughts7476 trouble927 thee, nor409 let thy countenance2122 be changed:8133

11  There is383 a man1400 in thy kingdom,4437 in whom1768 is the spirit7308 of the holy6922 gods;426 and in the days3118 of thy father2 light5094 and understanding7924 and wisdom,2452 like the wisdom2452 of the gods,426 was found7912 in him; whom the king4430 Nebuchadnezzar5020 thy father,2 the king,4430 I say, thy father,2 made6966 master7229 of the magicians,2749 astrologers,826 Chaldeans,3779 and soothsayers;1505

12  Forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 an excellent3493 spirit,7308 and knowledge,4486 and understanding,7924 interpreting6591 of dreams,2493 and showing263 of hard sentences,280 and dissolving8271 of doubts,7001 were found7912 in the same Daniel,1841 whom1768 the king4430 named7761 8036 Belteshazzar:1096 now3705 let Daniel1841 be called,7123 and he will show2324 the interpretation.6591

13  Then116 was Daniel1841 brought in5954 before6925 the king.4430 And the king4430 spoke6032 and said560 unto Daniel,1841 Art thou607 that1932 Daniel,1841 which1768 art of4481 the children1123 of the captivity1547 of1768 Judah,3061 whom1768 the king4430 my father2 brought out858 of4481 Jewry?3061

14  I have even heard8086 of5922 thee, that1768 the spirit7308 of the gods426 is in thee, and that light5094 and understanding7924 and excellent3493 wisdom2452 is found7912 in thee.

15  And now3705 the wise2445 men, the astrologers,826 have been brought in5954 before6925 me, that1768 they should read7123 this1836 writing,3792 and make known3046 unto me the interpretation6591 thereof: but they could3546 not3809 show2324 the interpretation6591 of the thing:4406

16  And I576 have heard8086 of5922 thee, that1768 thou canst3202 make6590 interpretations,6591 and dissolve8271 doubts:7001 now3705 if2006 thou canst3202 read7123 the writing,3792 and make known3046 to me the interpretation6591 thereof, thou shalt be clothed3848 with scarlet,711 and have a chain2002 of1768 gold1722 about5922 thy neck,6676 and shalt be the third ruler7981 8531 in the kingdom.4437

17  Then116 Daniel1841 answered6032 and said560 before6925 the king,4430 Let thy gifts4978 be1934 to thyself, and give3052 thy rewards5023 to another;321 yet1297 I will read7123 the writing3792 unto the king,4430 and make known3046 to him the interpretation.6591

18  O thou607 king,4430 the most high5943 God426 gave3052 Nebuchadnezzar5020 thy father2 a kingdom,4437 and majesty,7238 and glory,3367 and honor:1923

19  And for4481 the majesty7238 that1768 he gave3052 him, all3606 people,5972 nations,524 and languages,3961 trembled1934 2112 and feared1763 before4481 6925 him: whom1768 he would1934 6634 he slew;1934 6992 and whom1768 he would1934 6634 he kept alive;1934 2418 and whom1768 he would1934 6634 he set up;1934 7313 and whom1768 he would1934 6634 he put down.1934 8214

20  But when1768 his heart3825 was lifted up,7313 and his mind7308 hardened8631 in pride,2103 he was deposed5182 from4481 his kingly4437 throne,3764 and they took5709 his glory3367 from4481 him:

21  And he was driven2957 from4481 the sons1123 of men;606 and his heart3825 was made7739 like5974 the beasts,2423 and his dwelling4070 was with5974 the wild asses:6167 they fed2939 him with grass6211 like oxen,8450 and his body1655 was wet6647 with the dew4481 2920 of heaven;8065 till5705 1768 he knew3046 that1768 the most high5943 God426 ruled7990 in the kingdom4437 of men,606 and that he appointeth6966 over5922 it whomsoever4479 1768 he will.6634

22  And thou607 his son,1247 O Belshazzar,1113 hast not3809 humbled8214 thine heart,3825 though3606 6903 1768 thou knewest3046 all3606 this;1836

23  But hast lifted up thyself7313 against5922 the Lord4756 of heaven;8065 and they have brought858 the vessels3984 of1768 his house1005 before6925 thee, and thou,607 and thy lords,7261 thy wives,7695 and thy concubines,3904 have drunk8355 wine2562 in them; and thou hast praised7624 the gods426 of silver,3702 and gold,1722 of brass,5174 iron,6523 wood,636 and stone,69 which1768 see2370 not,3809 nor3809 hear,8086 nor3809 know:3046 and the God426 in whose1768 hand3028 thy breath5396 is, and whose are all3606 thy ways,735 hast thou not3809 glorified:1922

24  Then116 was the part6447 of1768 the hand3028 sent7972 from4481 6925 him; and this1836 writing3792 was written.7560

25  And this1836 is the writing3792 that1768 was written,7560 MENE,4484 MENE,4484 TEKEL,8625 UPHARSIN.6537

26  This1836 is the interpretation6591 of the thing:4406 MENE;4484 God426 hath numbered4483 thy kingdom,4437 and finished8000 it.

27  TEKEL;8625 Thou art weighed8625 in the balances,3977 and art found7912 wanting.2627

28  PERES;6537 Thy kingdom4437 is divided,6537 and given3052 to the Medes4076 and Persians.6540

29  Then116 commanded560 Belshazzar,1113 and they clothed3848 Daniel1841 with scarlet,711 and put a chain2002 of1768 gold1722 about5922 his neck,6676 and made a proclamation3745 concerning5922 him, that1768 he should be1934 the third8531 ruler7990 in the kingdom.4437

30  In that night3916 was Belshazzar1113 the king4430 of the Chaldeans3779 slain.6992

31  And Darius1868 the Median4077 took6902 the kingdom,4437 being about threescore8361 and two8648 years8140 old.1247

Daniel 6: 1-28

1  It pleased8232 6925 Darius1868 to set6966 over5922 the kingdom4437 a hundred3969 and twenty6243 princes,324 which1768 should be1934 over the whole3606 kingdom;4437

2  And over5924 4481 these three8532 presidents;5632 of whom4481 1768 Daniel1841 was first:2298 that1768 the459 princes324 might1934 give3052 accounts2941 unto them, and the king4430 should have1934 no3809 damage.5142

3  Then116 this1836 Daniel1841 was1934 preferred5330 above5922 the presidents5632 and princes,324 because3606 6903 1768 an excellent3493 spirit7308 was in him; and the king4430 thought6246 to set6966 him over5922 the whole3606 realm.4437

4  Then116 the presidents5632 and princes324 sought1934 1156 to find7912 occasion5931 against Daniel1841 concerning4481 6655 the kingdom;4437 but they could3202 find7912 none3809 3606 occasion5931 nor fault;7844 forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 he1932 was faithful,540 neither3809 was there any3606 error7960 or fault7844 found7912 in5922 him.

5  Then116 said560 these479 men,1400 We shall not3809 find7912 any3606 occasion5931 against this1836 Daniel,1841 except3861 we find7912 it against5922 him concerning the law1882 of his God.426

6  Then116 these459 presidents5632 and princes324 assembled together7284 to5922 the king,4430 and said560 thus3652 unto him, King4430 Darius,1868 live2418 forever.5957

7  All3606 the presidents5632 of the kingdom,4437 the governors,5460 and the princes,324 the counselors,1907 and the captains,6347 have consulted together3272 to establish6966 a royal4430 statute,7010 and to make a firm8631 decree,633 that1768 whosoever3606 1768 shall ask1156 a petition1159 of4481 any3606 God426 or man606 for5705 thirty8533 days,3118 save3861 of4481 thee, O king,4430 he shall be cast7412 into the den1358 of lions.744

8  Now,3705 O king,4430 establish6966 the decree,633 and sign7560 the writing,3792 that1768 it be not3809 changed,8133 according to the law1882 of the Medes4076 and Persians,6540 which1768 altereth5709 not.3809

9  Wherefore3606 6903 1836 king4430 Darius1868 signed7560 the writing3792 and the decree.633

10  Now when1768 Daniel1841 knew3046 that1768 the writing3792 was signed,7560 he went5954 into his house;1005 and his windows3551 being open6606 in his chamber5952 toward5049 Jerusalem,3390 he1932 kneeled1289 upon5922 his knees1291 three8532 times2166 a day,3118 and prayed,6739 and gave thanks3029 before6925 his God,426 as3606 6903 1768 he did1934 5648 formerly.4481 6928 1836

11  Then116 these479 men1400 assembled,7284 and found7912 Daniel1841 praying1156 and making supplication2604 before6925 his God.426

12  Then116 they came near,7127 and spoke560 before6925 the king4430 concerning5922 the king's4430 decree;633 Hast thou not3809 signed7560 a decree,633 that1768 every3606 man606 that1768 shall ask1156 a petition of4481 any3606 God426 or man606 within5705 thirty8533 days,3118 save3861 of4481 thee, O king,4430 shall be cast7412 into the den1358 of lions?744 The king4430 answered6032 and said,560 The thing4406 is true,3330 according to the law1882 of the Medes4076 and Persians,6540 which1768 altereth5709 not.3809

13  Then116 answered6032 they and said560 before6925 the king,4430 That1768 Daniel,1841 which1768 is of4481 the children1123 of the captivity1547 of1768 Judah,3061 regardeth7761 2942 5922 not3809 thee, O king,4430 nor the decree633 that1768 thou hast signed,7560 but maketh1156 his petition1159 three8532 times2166 a day.3118

14  Then116 the king,4430 when1768 he heard8086 these words,4406 was sore7690 displeased888 with5922 himself, and set7761 his heart1079 on5922 Daniel1841 to deliver7804 him: and he labored1934 7712 till5705 the going down4606 of the sun8122 to deliver5338 him.

15  Then116 these479 men1400 assembled7284 unto5922 the king,4430 and said560 unto the king,4430 Know,3046 O king,4430 that1768 the law1882 of the Medes4076 and Persians6540 is, That1768 no3809 3606 decree633 nor statute7010 which1768 the king4430 establisheth6966 may be changed.8133

16  Then116 the king4430 commanded,560 and they brought858 Daniel,1841 and cast7412 him into the den1358 of1768 lions.744 Now the king4430 spoke6032 and said560 unto Daniel,1841 Thy God426 whom1768 thou607 servest6399 continually,8411 he1932 will deliver7804 thee.

17  And a2298 stone69 was brought,858 and laid7761 upon5922 the mouth6433 of the den;1358 and the king4430 sealed2857 it with his own signet,5824 and with the signet5824 of his lords;7261 that1768 the purpose6640 might not3809 be changed8133 concerning Daniel.1841

18  Then116 the king4430 went236 to his palace,1965 and passed the night956 fasting:2908 neither3809 were instruments of music1761 brought5954 before6925 him: and his sleep8139 went5075 from5922 him.

19  Then116 the king4430 arose6966 very early in the morning,8238 5053 and went236 in haste927 unto the den1358 of1768 lions.744

20  And when he came7127 to the den,1358 he cried2200 with a lamentable6088 voice7032 unto Daniel:1841 and the king4430 spoke6032 and said560 to Daniel,1841 O Daniel,1841 servant5649 of the living2417 God,426 is thy God,426 whom1768 thou607 servest6399 continually,8411 able3202 to deliver7804 thee from4481 the lions?744

21  Then116 said4449 Daniel1841 unto5974 the king,4430 O king,4430 live2418 forever.5957

22  My God426 hath sent7972 his angel,4398 and hath shut5463 the lions'744 mouths,6433 that they have not3809 hurt2255 me: forasmuch as3606 6903 1768 before6925 him innocency2136 was found7912 in me; and also638 before6925 thee, O king,4430 have I done5648 no3809 hurt.2248

23  Then116 was the king exceeding glad4430 7690 2868 for5922 him, and commanded560 that they should take Daniel up5267 1841 out of4481 the den.1358 So Daniel1841 was taken up5267 out of4481 the den,1358 and no manner3809 3606 of hurt2257 was found7912 upon him, because1768 he believed540 in his God.426

24  And the king4430 commanded,560 and they brought858 those479 men1400 which1768 had accused399 7170 Daniel,1768 1841 and they cast7412 them into the den1358 of lions,744 them,581 their children,1123 and their wives;5389 and the lions744 had the mastery7981 of them, and broke all their bones in pieces1855 3606 1635 or ever they came5705 1768 3809 4291 at the bottom773 of the den.1358

25  Then116 king4430 Darius1868 wrote3790 unto all3606 people,5972 nations,524 and languages,3961 that1768 dwell1753 in all3606 the earth;772 Peace8001 be multiplied7680 unto you.

26  I make4481 6925 7761 a decree,2942 That1768 in every3606 dominion7985 of my kingdom4437 men tremble1934 2112 and fear1763 before4481 6925 the God426 of1768 Daniel:1841 for1768 he1932 is the living2417 God,426 and steadfast7011 forever,5957 and his kingdom4437 that which1768 shall not3809 be destroyed,2255 and his dominion7985 shall be even unto5705 the end.5491

27  He delivereth7804 and rescueth,5338 and he worketh5648 signs852 and wonders8540 in heaven8065 and in earth,772 who1768 hath delivered7804 Daniel1841 from4481 the power3028 of the lions.744

28  So this1836 Daniel1841 prospered6744 in the reign4437 of Darius,1868 and in the reign4437 of Cyrus3567 the Persian.6543

Daniel 7: 1-28

1  In the first2298 year8140 of Belshazzar1113 king4430 of Babylon895 Daniel1841 had2370 a dream2493 and visions2376 of his head7217 upon5922 his bed:4903 then116 he wrote3790 the dream,2493 and told560 the sum7217 of the matters.4406

2  Daniel1841 spoke6032 and said,560 I saw1934 2370 in my vision2376 by5974 night,3916 and, behold,718 the four703 winds7308 of the heaven8065 strove1519 upon the great7229 sea.3221

3  And four703 great7260 beasts2423 came up5559 from4481 the sea,3221 diverse8133 one1668 from another.4481 1668

4  The first6933 was like a lion,744 and had eagle's1768 5403 wings:1611 I beheld1934 2370 till5705 1768 the wings1611 thereof were plucked,4804 and it was lifted up5191 from4481 the earth,772 and made stand6966 upon5922 the feet7271 as a man,606 and a man's606 heart3825 was given3052 to it.

5  And behold718 another317 beast,2423 a second,8578 like1821 to a bear,1678 and it raised up6966 itself on one2298 side,7859 and it had three8532 ribs5967 in the mouth6433 of it between997 the teeth8128 of it: and they said560 thus3652 unto it, Arise,6966 devour399 much7690 flesh.1321

6  After870 this1836 I beheld,1934 2370 and lo718 another,317 like a leopard,5245 which had upon5922 the back1355 of it four703 wings1611 of1768 a fowl;5776 the beast2423 had also four703 heads;7217 and dominion7985 was given3052 to it.

7  After870 this1836 I saw1934 2370 in the night3916 visions,2376 and behold718 a fourth7244 beast,2423 dreadful1763 and terrible,574 and strong8624 exceedingly;3493 and it had great7260 iron1768 6523 teeth:8128 it devoured399 and broke in pieces,1855 and stamped7512 the residue7606 with the feet7271 of it: and it1932 was diverse8133 from4481 all3606 the beasts2423 that1768 were before6925 it; and it had ten6236 horns.7162

8  I considered1934 7920 the horns,7162 and, behold,431 there came up5559 among997 them another317 little2192 horn,7162 before4481 6925 whom there were three8532 of4481 the first6933 horns7162 plucked up by the roots:6132 and, behold,431 in this1668 horn7162 were eyes5870 like the eyes5870 of man,606 and a mouth6433 speaking4449 great things.7260

9  I beheld1934 2370 till5705 1768 the thrones3764 were cast down,7412 and the Ancient6268 of days3118 did sit,3488 whose garment3831 was white2358 as snow,8517 and the hair8177 of his head7217 like the pure5343 wool:6015 his throne3764 was like the fiery1768 5135 flame,7631 and his wheels1535 as burning1815 fire.5135

10  A fiery1768 5135 stream5103 issued5047 and came forth5312 from4481 before6925 him: thousand506 thousands506 ministered8120 unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand7240 7240 stood6966 before6925 him: the judgment1780 was set,3488 and the books5609 were opened.6606

11  I beheld1934 2370 then116 because of4481 the voice7032 of the great7260 words4406 which1768 the horn7162 spoke:4449 I beheld1934 2370 even till5705 1768 the beast2423 was slain,6992 and his body1655 destroyed,7 and given3052 to the burning3346 flame.785

12  As concerning the rest7606 of the beasts,2423 they had their dominion7985 taken away:5709 yet their lives2417 were prolonged754 3052 for5705 a season2166 and time.5732

13  I saw1934 2370 in the night3916 visions,2376 and, behold,718 one like the Son1247 of man606 came1934 858 with5974 the clouds6050 of heaven,8065 and came4291 to5705 the Ancient6268 of days,3118 and they brought him near7127 before6925 him.

14  And there was given3052 him dominion,7985 and glory,3367 and a kingdom,4437 that all3606 people,5972 nations,524 and languages,3961 should serve6399 him: his dominion7985 is an everlasting5957 dominion,7985 which1768 shall not3809 pass away,5709 and his kingdom4437 that which1768 shall not3809 be destroyed.2255

15  I576 Daniel1841 was grieved3735 in my spirit7308 in the midst1459 of my body,5085 and the visions2376 of my head7217 troubled927 me.

16  I came near7127 unto5922 one2298 of4481 them that stood by,6966 and asked1156 4481 him the truth3330 of5922 all3606 this.1836 So he told560 me, and made me know3046 the interpretation6591 of the things.4406

17  These459 great7260 beasts,2423 which1768 are four,703 are four703 kings,4430 which shall arise6966 out of4481 the earth.772

18  But the saints6922 of the most High5946 shall take6902 the kingdom,4437 and possess2631 the kingdom4437 forever,5705 5957 even forever5705 5957 and ever.5957

19  Then116 I would6634 know3046 the truth3321 of5922 the fourth7244 beast,2423 which1768 was1934 diverse8133 from4481 all3606 the others, exceeding3493 dreadful,1763 whose teeth8128 were of1768 iron,6523 and his nails2953 of1768 brass;5174 which devoured,399 broke in pieces,1855 and stamped7512 the residue7606 with his feet;7271

20  And of5922 the ten6236 horns7162 that1768 were in his head,7217 and of the other317 which1768 came up,5559 and before4481 6925 whom three8532 fell;5308 even of that1797 horn7162 that had eyes,5870 and a mouth6433 that spoke4449 very great things,7260 whose look2376 was more stout7229 than4481 his fellows.2273

21  I beheld,1934 2370 and the same1797 horn7162 made5648 war7129 with5974 the saints,6922 and prevailed3202 against them;

22  Until5705 1768 the Ancient6268 of days3118 came,858 and judgment1780 was given3052 to the saints6922 of the most High;5946 and the time2166 came4291 that the saints6922 possessed2631 the kingdom.4437

23  Thus3652 he said,560 The fourth7244 beast2423 shall be1934 the fourth7244 kingdom4437 upon earth,772 which1768 shall be diverse8133 from4481 all3606 kingdoms,4437 and shall devour399 the whole3606 earth,772 and shall tread it down,1759 and break it in pieces.1855

24  And the ten6236 horns7162 out of4481 this kingdom4437 are ten6236 kings4430 that shall arise:6966 and another321 shall rise6966 after311 them; and he1932 shall be diverse8133 from4481 the first,6933 and he shall subdue8214 three8532 kings.4430

25  And he shall speak4449 great words4406 against6655 the most High,5943 and shall wear out1080 the saints6922 of the most High,5946 and think5452 to change8133 times2166 and laws:1882 and they shall be given3052 into his hand3028 until5705 a time5732 and times5732 and the dividing6387 of time.5732

26  But the judgment1780 shall sit,3488 and they shall take away5709 his dominion,7985 to consume8046 and to destroy7 it unto5705 the end.5491

27  And the kingdom4437 and dominion,7985 and the greatness7238 of1768 the kingdom4437 under8460 the whole3606 heaven,8065 shall be given3052 to the people5972 of the saints6922 of the most High,5946 whose kingdom4437 is an everlasting5957 kingdom,4437 and all3606 dominions7985 shall serve6399 and obey8086 him.

28  Hitherto5705 3542 is the end5491 of1768 the matter.4406 As for me576 Daniel,1841 my cogitations7476 much7690 troubled927 me, and my countenance2122 changed8133 in5922 me: but I kept5202 the matter4406 in my heart.3821

Daniel 8: 1-27

1  In the third7969 year8141 of the reign4438 of king4428 Belshazzar1112 a vision2377 appeared7200 unto413 me, even unto me589 Daniel,1840 after that310 which appeared7200 unto413 me at the first.8462

2  And I saw7200 in a vision;2377 and it came to pass,1961 when I saw,7200 that I589 was at Shushan7800 in the palace,1002 which834 is in the province4082 of Elam;5867 and I saw7200 in a vision,2377 and I589 was1961 by5921 the river180 of Ulai.195

3  Then I lifted up5375 mine eyes,5869 and saw,7200 and, behold,2009 there stood5975 before6440 the river180 a259 ram352 which had two horns:7161 and the two horns7161 were high;1364 but one259 was higher1364 than4480 the other,8145 and the higher1364 came up5927 last.314

4  I saw7200 853 the ram352 pushing5055 westward,3220 and northward,6828 and southward;5045 so that no3808 3605 beasts2416 might stand5975 before6440 him, neither369 was there any that could deliver5337 out of his hand;4480 3027 but he did6213 according to his will,7522 and became great.1431

5  And as I589 was1961 considering,995 behold,2009 a he goat6842 5795 came935 from4480 the west4628 on5921 the face6440 of the whole3605 earth,776 and touched5060 not369 the ground:776 and the goat6842 had a notable2380 horn7161 between996 his eyes.5869

6  And he came935 to5704 the ram352 that had1167 two horns,7161 which834 I had seen7200 standing5975 before6440 the river,180 and ran7323 unto413 him in the fury2534 of his power.3581

7  And I saw7200 him come close5060 unto681 the ram,352 and he was moved with anger4843 against413 him, and smote5221 853 the ram,352 and broke7665 853 his two8147 horns:7161 and there was1961 no3808 power3581 in the ram352 to stand5975 before6440 him, but he cast him down7993 to the ground,776 and stamped upon7429 him: and there was1961 none3808 that could deliver5337 the ram352 out of his hand.4480 3027

8  Therefore the he goat6842 5795 waxed very great:1431 5704 3966 and when he was strong,6105 the great1419 horn7161 was broken;7665 and for8478 it came up5927 four702 notable ones2380 toward the four702 winds7307 of heaven.8064

9  And out of4480 one259 of4480 them came forth3318 a259 little4480 4704 horn,7161 which waxed exceeding great,1431 3499 toward413 the south,5045 and toward413 the east,4217 and toward413 the pleasant6643 land.

10  And it waxed great,1431 even to5704 the host6635 of heaven;8064 and it cast down5307 some of4480 the host6635 and of4480 the stars3556 to the ground,776 and stamped upon7429 them.

11  Yea, he magnified1431 himself even to5704 the prince8269 of the host,6635 and by4480 him the daily8548 sacrifice was taken away,7311 and the place4349 of his sanctuary4720 was cast down.7993

12  And a host6635 was given5414 him against5921 the daily8548 sacrifice by reason of transgression,6588 and it cast down7993 the truth571 to the ground;776 and it practiced,6213 and prospered.6743

13  Then I heard8085 one259 saint6918 speaking,1696 and another259 saint6918 said559 unto that certain6422 saint which spoke,1696 How long5704 4970 shall be the vision2377 concerning the daily8548 sacrifice, and the transgression6588 of desolation,8074 to give5414 both the sanctuary6944 and the host6635 to be trodden under foot?4823

14  And he said559 unto413 me, Unto5704 two thousand505 and three7969 hundred3967 days;6153 1242 then shall the sanctuary6944 be cleansed.6663

15  And it came to pass,1961 when I, even I589 Daniel,1840 had seen7200 853 the vision,2377 and sought1245 for the meaning,998 then, behold,2009 there stood5975 before5048 me as the appearance4758 of a man.1397

16  And I heard8085 a man's120 voice6963 between996 the banks of Ulai,195 which called,7121 and said,559 Gabriel,1403 make this1975 man to understand995 853 the vision.4758

17  So he came935 near681 where I stood:5977 and when he came,935 I was afraid,1204 and fell5307 upon5921 my face:6440 but he said559 unto413 me, Understand,995 O son1121 of man:120 for3588 at the time6256 of the end7093 shall be the vision.4758

18  Now as he was speaking1696 with5973 me, I was in a deep sleep7290 on5921 my face6440 toward the ground:776 but he touched5060 me, and set5975 me upright.5921 5977

19  And he said,559 Behold,2009 I will make thee know3045 853 what834 shall be1961 in the last end319 of the indignation:2195 for3588 at the time appointed4150 the end7093 shall be.

20  The ram352 which834 thou sawest7200 having1167 two horns7161 are the kings4428 of Media4074 and Persia.6539

21  And the rough8163 goat6842 is the king4428 of Greece:3120 and the great1419 horn7161 that834 is between996 his eyes5869 is the first7223 king.4428

22  Now that being broken,7665 whereas four702 stood up5975 for8478 it, four702 kingdoms4438 shall stand up5975 out of the nation,4480 1471 but not3808 in his power.3581

23  And in the latter time319 of their kingdom,4438 when the transgressors6586 are come to the full,8552 a king4428 of fierce5794 countenance,6440 and understanding995 dark sentences,2420 shall stand up.5975

24  And his power3581 shall be mighty,6105 but not3808 by his own power:3581 and he shall destroy7843 wonderfully,6381 and shall prosper,6743 and practice,6213 and shall destroy7843 the mighty6099 and the holy6918 people.5971

25  And through5921 his policy7922 also he shall cause craft4820 to prosper6743 in his hand;3027 and he shall magnify1431 himself in his heart,3824 and by peace7962 shall destroy7843 many:7227 he shall also stand up5975 against5921 the Prince8269 of princes;8269 but he shall be broken7665 without657 hand.3027

26  And the vision4758 of the evening6153 and the morning1242 which834 was told559 is true:571 wherefore shut thou up859 5640 the vision;2377 for3588 it shall be for many7227 days.3117

27  And I589 Daniel1840 fainted,1961 and was sick2470 certain days;3117 afterward I rose up,6965 and did6213 853 the king's4428 business;4399 and I was astonished8074 at5921 the vision,4758 but none369 understood995 it.

Daniel 9: 1-27

1  In the first259 year8141 of Darius1867 the son1121 of Ahasuerus,325 of the seed4480 2233 of the Medes,4074 which834 was made king4427 over5921 the realm4438 of the Chaldeans;3778

2  In the first259 year8141 of his reign4427 I589 Daniel1840 understood995 by books5612 the number4557 of the years,8141 whereof834 the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 the prophet,5030 that he would accomplish4390 seventy7657 years8141 in the desolations2723 of Jerusalem.3389

3  And I set5414 853 my face6440 unto413 the Lord136 God,430 to seek1245 by prayer8605 and supplications,8469 with fasting,6685 and sackcloth,8242 and ashes:665

4  And I prayed6419 unto the LORD3068 my God,430 and made my confession,3034 and said,559 O577 Lord,136 the great1419 and dreadful3372 God,410 keeping8104 the covenant1285 and mercy2617 to them that love157 him, and to them that keep8104 his commandments;4687

5  We have sinned,2398 and have committed iniquity,5753 and have done wickedly,7561 and have rebelled,4775 even by departing5493 from thy precepts4480 4687 and from thy judgments:4480 4941

6  Neither3808 have we hearkened8085 unto413 thy servants5650 the prophets,5030 which834 spoke1696 in thy name8034 to413 our kings,4428 our princes,8269 and our fathers,1 and to413 all3605 the people5971 of the land.776

7  O Lord,136 righteousness6666 belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion1322 of faces,6440 as at this2088 day;3117 to the men376 of Judah,3063 and to the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 and unto all3605 Israel,3478 that are near,7138 and that are far off,7350 through all3605 the countries776 whither834 8033 thou hast driven5080 them, because of their trespass4604 that834 they have trespassed4603 against thee.

8  O Lord,3068 to us belongeth confusion1322 of face,6440 to our kings,4428 to our princes,8269 and to our fathers,1 because834 we have sinned2398 against thee.

9  To the Lord136 our God430 belong mercies7356 and forgivenesses,5547 though3588 we have rebelled4775 against him;

10  Neither3808 have we obeyed8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 our God,430 to walk1980 in his laws,8451 which834 he set5414 before6440 us by3027 his servants5650 the prophets.5030

11  Yea, all3605 Israel3478 have transgressed5674 853 thy law,8451 even by departing,5493 that they might not1115 obey8085 thy voice;6963 therefore the curse423 is poured5413 upon5921 us, and the oath7621 that834 is written3789 in the law8451 of Moses4872 the servant5650 of God,430 because3588 we have sinned2398 against him.

12  And he hath confirmed6965 853 his words,1697 which834 he spoke1696 against5921 us, and against5921 our judges8199 that834 judged8199 us, by bringing935 upon5921 us a great1419 evil:7451 for834 under8478 the whole3605 heaven8064 hath not3808 been done6213 as834 hath been done6213 upon Jerusalem.3389

13  As834 it is written3789 in the law8451 of Moses,4872 853 all3605 this2063 evil7451 is come935 upon5921 us: yet made we not our prayer2470 3808 853 before6440 the LORD3068 our God,430 that we might turn7725 from our iniquities,4480 5771 and understand7919 thy truth.571

14  Therefore hath the LORD3068 watched8245 upon5921 the evil,7451 and brought935 it upon5921 us: for3588 the LORD3068 our God430 is righteous6662 in5921 all3605 his works4639 which834 he doeth:6213 for we obeyed8085 not3808 his voice.6963

15  And now,6258 O Lord136 our God,430 that834 hast brought thy people forth3318 853 5971 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 with a mighty2389 hand,3027 and hast gotten6213 thee renown,8034 as at this2088 day;3117 we have sinned,2398 we have done wickedly.7561

16  O Lord,136 according to all3605 thy righteousness,6666 I beseech thee,4994 let thine anger639 and thy fury2534 be turned away7725 from thy city4480 5892 Jerusalem,3389 thy holy6944 mountain:2022 because3588 for our sins,2399 and for the iniquities5771 of our fathers,1 Jerusalem3389 and thy people5971 are become a reproach2781 to all3605 that are about5439 us.

17  Now6258 therefore, O our God,430 hear8085 413 the prayer8605 of thy servant,5650 and his supplications,8469 and cause thy face6440 to shine215 upon5921 thy sanctuary4720 that is desolate,8076 for the Lord's sake.4616 136

18  O my God,430 incline5186 thine ear,241 and hear;8085 open6491 thine eyes,5869 and behold7200 our desolations,8074 and the city5892 which834 is called7121 by5921 thy name:8034 for3588 we587 do not3808 present5307 our supplications8469 before6440 thee for5921 our righteousnesses,6666 but3588 for5921 thy great7227 mercies.7356

19  O Lord,136 hear;8085 O Lord,136 forgive;5545 O Lord,136 hearken7181 and do;6213 defer309 not,408 for thine own sake,4616 O my God:430 for3588 thy city5892 and thy people5971 are called7121 by thy name.8034

20  And while5750 I589 was speaking,1696 and praying,6419 and confessing3034 my sin2403 and the sin2403 of my people5971 Israel,3478 and presenting5307 my supplication8467 before6440 the LORD3068 my God430 for5921 the holy6944 mountain2022 of my God;430

21  Yea, while5750 I589 was speaking1696 in prayer,8605 even the man376 Gabriel,1403 whom834 I had seen7200 in the vision2377 at the beginning,8462 being caused to fly3286 swiftly,3288 touched5060 413 me about the time6256 of the evening6153 oblation.4503

22  And he informed995 me, and talked1696 with5973 me, and said,559 O Daniel,1840 I am now6258 come forth3318 to give thee skill7919 and understanding.998

23  At the beginning8462 of thy supplications8469 the commandment1697 came forth,3318 and I589 am come935 to show5046 thee; for3588 thou859 art greatly beloved:2530 therefore understand995 the matter,1697 and consider995 the vision.2377

24  Seventy7657 weeks7620 are determined2852 upon5921 thy people5971 and upon5921 thy holy6944 city,5892 to finish3607 the transgression,6588 and to make an end2856 of sins,2403 and to make reconciliation3722 for iniquity,5771 and to bring in935 everlasting5769 righteousness,6664 and to seal up2856 the vision2377 and prophecy,5030 and to anoint4886 the most Holy.6944 6944

25  Know3045 therefore and understand,7919 that from4480 the going forth4161 of the commandment1697 to restore7725 and to build1129 Jerusalem3389 unto5704 the Messiah4899 the Prince5057 shall be seven7651 weeks,7620 and threescore8346 and two8147 weeks:7620 the street7339 shall be built1129 again,7725 and the wall,2742 even in troublous6695 times.6256

26  And after310 threescore8346 and two8147 weeks7620 shall Messiah4899 be cut off,3772 but not369 for himself: and the people5971 of the prince5057 that shall come935 shall destroy7843 the city5892 and the sanctuary;6944 and the end7093 thereof shall be with a flood,7858 and unto5704 the end7093 of the war4421 desolations8074 are determined.2782

27  And he shall confirm1396 the covenant1285 with many7227 for one259 week:7620 and in the midst2677 of the week7620 he shall cause the sacrifice2077 and the oblation4503 to cease,7673 and for5921 the overspreading3671 of abominations8251 he shall make it desolate,8074 even until5704 the consummation,3617 and that determined2782 shall be poured5413 upon5921 the desolate.8076

Daniel 10: 1-21

1  In the third7969 year8141 of Cyrus3566 king4428 of Persia6539 a thing1697 was revealed1540 unto Daniel,1840 whose834 name8034 was called7121 Belteshazzar;1095 and the thing1697 was true,571 but the time appointed6635 was long:1419 and he understood995 853 the thing,1697 and had understanding998 of the vision.4758

2  In those1992 days3117 I589 Daniel1840 was1961 mourning56 three7969 full3117 weeks.7620

3  I ate398 no3808 pleasant2530 bread,3899 neither3808 came935 flesh1320 nor wine3196 in413 my mouth,6310 neither3808 did I anoint myself at all,5480 5480 till5704 three7969 whole3117 weeks7620 were fulfilled.4390

4  And in the four702 and twentieth6242 day3117 of the first7223 month,2320 as I589 was1961 by5921 the side3027 of the great1419 river,5104 which1931 is Hiddekel;2313

5  Then I lifted up5375 853 mine eyes,5869 and looked,7200 and behold2009 a certain259 man376 clothed3847 in linen,906 whose loins4975 were girded2296 with fine gold3800 of Uphaz:210

6  His body1472 also was like the beryl,8658 and his face6440 as the appearance4758 of lightning,1300 and his eyes5869 as lamps3940 of fire,784 and his arms2220 and his feet4772 like in color5869 to polished7044 brass,5178 and the voice6963 of his words1697 like the voice6963 of a multitude.1995

7  And I589 Daniel1840 alone905 saw7200 853 the vision:4759 for the men376 that834 were1961 with5973 me saw7200 not3808 853 the vision;4759 but61 a great1419 quaking2731 fell5307 upon5921 them, so that they fled1272 to hide themselves.2244

8  Therefore I589 was left7604 alone,905 and saw7200 853 this2063 great1419 vision,4759 and there remained7604 no3808 strength3581 in me: for my comeliness1935 was turned2015 in5921 me into corruption,4889 and I retained6113 no3808 strength.3581

9  Yet heard8085 I 853 the voice6963 of his words:1697 and when I heard8085 853 the voice6963 of his words,1697 then was1961 I589 in a deep sleep7290 on5921 my face,6440 and my face6440 toward the ground.776

10  And, behold,2009 a hand3027 touched5060 me, which set5128 me upon5921 my knees1290 and upon the palms3709 of my hands.3027

11  And he said559 unto413 me, O Daniel,1840 a man376 greatly beloved,2530 understand995 the words1697 that834 I595 speak1696 unto413 thee, and stand5975 upright:5921 5977 for3588 unto413 thee am I now6258 sent.7971 And when he had spoken1696 853 this2088 word1697 unto5973 me, I stood5975 trembling.7460

12  Then said559 he unto413 me, Fear3372 not,408 Daniel:1840 for3588 from4480 the first7223 day3117 that834 thou didst set5414 853 thine heart3820 to understand,995 and to chasten thyself6031 before6440 thy God,430 thy words1697 were heard,8085 and I589 am come935 for thy words.1697

13  But the prince8269 of the kingdom4438 of Persia6539 withstood5975 5048 me one259 and twenty6242 days:3117 but, lo,2009 Michael,4317 one259 of the chief7223 princes,8269 came935 to help5826 me; and I589 remained3498 there8033 with681 the kings4428 of Persia.6539

14  Now I am come935 to make thee understand995 853 what834 shall befall7136 thy people5971 in the latter319 days:3117 for3588 yet5750 the vision2377 is for many days.3117

15  And when he had spoken1696 such428 words1697 unto5973 me, I set5414 my face6440 toward the ground,776 and I became dumb.481

16  And, behold,2009 one like the similitude1823 of the sons1121 of men120 touched5060 5921 my lips:8193 then I opened6605 my mouth,6310 and spoke,1696 and said559 unto413 him that stood5975 before5048 me, O my lord,113 by the vision4758 my sorrows6735 are turned2015 upon5921 me, and I have retained6113 no3808 strength.3581

17  For how1963 can3201 the servant5650 of this2088 my lord113 talk1696 with5973 this2088 my lord?113 for as for me,589 straightway4480 6258 there remained5975 no3808 strength3581 in me, neither3808 is there breath5397 left7604 in me.

18  Then there came again3584 and touched5060 me one like the appearance4758 of a man,120 and he strengthened2388 me,

19  And said,559 O man376 greatly beloved,2530 fear3372 not:408 peace7965 be unto thee, be strong,2388 yea, be strong.2388 And when he had spoken1696 unto5973 me, I was strengthened,2388 and said,559 Let my lord113 speak;1696 for3588 thou hast strengthened2388 me.

20  Then said559 he, Knowest3045 thou wherefore4100 I come935 unto413 thee? and now6258 will I return7725 to fight3898 with5973 the prince8269 of Persia:6539 and when I589 am gone forth,3318 lo,2009 the prince8269 of Greece3120 shall come.935

21  But61 I will show5046 thee 853 that which is noted7559 in the Scripture3791 of truth:571 and there is none369 259 that holdeth2388 with5973 me in5921 these things,428 but3588 518 Michael4317 your prince.8269

Daniel 11: 1-45

1  Also I589 in the first259 year8141 of Darius1867 the Mede,4075 even I, stood5975 to confirm2388 and to strengthen4581 him.

2  And now6258 will I show5046 thee the truth.571 Behold,2009 there shall stand up5975 yet5750 three7969 kings4428 in Persia;6539 and the fourth7243 shall be far richer6238 1419 6239 than they all:4480 3605 and by his strength2393 through his riches6239 he shall stir up5782 all3605 against854 the realm4438 of Greece.3120

3  And a mighty1368 king4428 shall stand up,5975 that shall rule4910 with great7227 dominion,4474 and do6213 according to his will.7522

4  And when he shall stand up,5975 his kingdom4438 shall be broken,7665 and shall be divided2673 toward the four702 winds7307 of heaven;8064 and not3808 to his posterity,319 nor3808 according to his dominion4915 which834 he ruled:4910 for3588 his kingdom4438 shall be plucked up,5428 even for others312 beside4480 905 those.428

5  And the king4428 of the south5045 shall be strong,2388 and one of4480 his princes;8269 and he shall be strong2388 above5921 him, and have dominion;4910 his dominion4474 shall be a great7227 dominion.4474

6  And in the end7093 of years8141 they shall join themselves together;2266 for the king's4428 daughter1323 of the south5045 shall come935 to413 the king4428 of the north6828 to make6213 an agreement:4339 but she shall not3808 retain6113 the power3581 of the arm;2220 neither3808 shall he stand,5975 nor his arm:2220 but she1931 shall be given up,5414 and they that brought935 her, and he that begot3205 her, and he that strengthened2388 her in these times.6256

7  But out of a branch4480 5342 of her roots8328 shall one stand up5975 in his estate,3653 which shall come935 with413 an army,2428 and shall enter935 into the fortress4581 of the king4428 of the north,6828 and shall deal6213 against them, and shall prevail:2388

8  And shall also1571 carry935 captives7628 into Egypt4714 their gods,430 with5973 their princes,5257 and with5973 their precious2532 vessels3627 of silver3701 and of gold;2091 and he1931 shall continue5975 more years8141 than the king4480 4428 of the north.6828

9  So the king4428 of the south5045 shall come935 into his kingdom,4438 and shall return7725 into413 his own land.127

10  But his sons1121 shall be stirred up,1624 and shall assemble622 a multitude1995 of great7227 forces:2428 and one shall certainly come,935 935 and overflow,7857 and pass through:5674 then shall he return,7725 and be stirred up,1624 even to5704 his fortress.4581

11  And the king4428 of the south5045 shall be moved with anger,4843 and shall come forth3318 and fight3898 with5973 him, even with5973 the king4428 of the north:6828 and he shall set forth5975 a great7227 multitude;1995 but the multitude1995 shall be given5414 into his hand.3027

12  And when he hath taken away5375 the multitude,1995 his heart3824 shall be lifted up;7311 and he shall cast down5307 many ten thousands:7239 but he shall not3808 be strengthened5810 by it.

13  For the king4428 of the north6828 shall return,7725 and shall set forth5975 a multitude1995 greater7227 than4480 the former,7223 and shall certainly come935 935 after7093 certain6256 years8141 with a great1419 army2428 and with much7227 riches.7399

14  And in those1992 times6256 there shall many7227 stand up5975 against5921 the king4428 of the south:5045 also the robbers1121 6530 of thy people5971 shall exalt themselves5375 to establish5975 the vision;2377 but they shall fall.3782

15  So the king4428 of the north6828 shall come,935 and cast up8210 a mount,5550 and take3920 the most fenced4013 cities:5892 and the arms2220 of the south5045 shall not3808 withstand,5975 neither his chosen4005 people,5971 neither369 shall there be any strength3581 to withstand.5975

16  But he that cometh935 against413 him shall do6213 according to his own will,7522 and none369 shall stand5975 before6440 him: and he shall stand5975 in the glorious6643 land,776 which by his hand3027 shall be consumed.3615

17  He shall also set7760 his face6440 to enter935 with the strength8633 of his whole3605 kingdom,4438 and upright ones3477 with5973 him; thus shall he do:6213 and he shall give5414 him the daughter1323 of women,802 corrupting7843 her: but she shall not3808 stand5975 on his side, neither3808 be1961 for him.

18  After this shall he turn7725 his face6440 unto the isles,339 and shall take3920 many:7227 but a prince7101 for his own behalf shall cause the reproach2781 offered by him to cease;7673 without1115 his own reproach2781 he shall cause it to turn7725 upon him.

19  Then he shall turn7725 his face6440 toward the fort4581 of his own land:776 but he shall stumble3782 and fall,5307 and not3808 be found.4672

20  Then shall stand up5975 in5921 his estate3653 a raiser5674 of taxes5065 in the glory1925 of the kingdom:4438 but within few259 days3117 he shall be destroyed,7665 neither3808 in anger,639 nor3808 in battle.4421

21  And in5921 his estate3653 shall stand up5975 a vile person,959 to5921 whom they shall not3808 give5414 the honor1935 of the kingdom:4438 but he shall come in935 peaceably,7962 and obtain2388 the kingdom4438 by flatteries.2519

22  And with the arms2220 of a flood7858 shall they be overflown7857 from before4480 6440 him, and shall be broken;7665 yea, also1571 the prince5057 of the covenant.1285

23  And after4480 the league2266 made with413 him he shall work6213 deceitfully:4820 for he shall come up,5927 and shall become strong6105 with a small4592 people.1471

24  He shall enter935 peaceably7962 even upon the fattest places4924 of the province;4082 and he shall do6213 that which834 his fathers1 have not3808 done,6213 nor his fathers'1 fathers;1 he shall scatter967 among them the prey,961 and spoil,7998 and riches:7399 yea, and he shall forecast2803 his devices4284 against5921 the strongholds,4013 even for5704 a time.6256

25  And he shall stir up5782 his power3581 and his courage3824 against5921 the king4428 of the south5045 with a great1419 army;2428 and the king4428 of the south5045 shall be stirred up1624 to battle4421 with a very5704 3966 great1419 and mighty6099 army;2428 but he shall not3808 stand:5975 for3588 they shall forecast2803 devices4284 against5921 him.

26  Yea, they that feed398 of the portion of his meat6598 shall destroy7665 him, and his army2428 shall overflow:7857 and many7227 shall fall down5307 slain.2491

27  And both8147 these kings'4428 hearts3824 shall be to do mischief,4827 and they shall speak1696 lies3577 at5921 one259 table;7979 but it shall not3808 prosper:6743 for3588 yet5750 the end7093 shall be at the time appointed.4150

28  Then shall he return7725 into his land776 with great1419 riches;7399 and his heart3824 shall be against5921 the holy6944 covenant;1285 and he shall do6213 exploits, and return7725 to his own land.776

29  At the time appointed4150 he shall return,7725 and come935 toward the south;5045 but it shall not3808 be1961 as the former,7223 or as the latter.314

30  For the ships6716 of Chittim3794 shall come935 against him: therefore he shall be grieved,3512 and return,7725 and have indignation2194 against5921 the holy6944 covenant:1285 so shall he do;6213 he shall even return,7725 and have intelligence995 with5921 them that forsake5800 the holy6944 covenant.1285

31  And arms2220 shall stand5975 on his part,4480 and they shall pollute2490 the sanctuary4720 of strength,4581 and shall take away5493 the daily8548 sacrifice, and they shall place5414 the abomination8251 that maketh desolate.8074

32  And such as do wickedly against7561 the covenant1285 shall he corrupt2610 by flatteries:2514 but the people5971 that do know3045 their God430 shall be strong,2388 and do6213 exploits.

33  And they that understand7919 among the people5971 shall instruct995 many:7227 yet they shall fall3782 by the sword,2719 and by flame,3852 by captivity,7628 and by spoil,961 many days.3117

34  Now when they shall fall,3782 they shall be helped5826 with a little4592 help:5828 but many7227 shall cleave3867 to5921 them with flatteries.2519

35  And some of4480 them of understanding7919 shall fall,3782 to try6884 them, and to purge,1305 and to make them white,3835 even to5704 the time6256 of the end:7093 because3588 it is yet5750 for a time appointed.4150

36  And the king4428 shall do6213 according to his will;7522 and he shall exalt himself,7311 and magnify himself1431 above5921 every3605 god,410 and shall speak1696 marvelous things6381 against5921 the God410 of gods,410 and shall prosper6743 till5704 the indignation2195 be accomplished:3615 for3588 that that is determined2782 shall be done.6213

37  Neither shall he regard5921 3808 995 the God430 of his fathers,1 nor the desire2532 of women,802 nor regard any3605 3808 995 god:433 for3588 he shall magnify himself1431 above5921 all.3605

38  But in5921 his estate3653 shall he honor3513 the God433 of forces:4581 and a god433 whom834 his fathers1 knew3045 not3808 shall he honor3513 with gold,2091 and silver,3701 and with precious3368 stones,68 and pleasant things.2530

39  Thus shall he do6213 in the most strong holds4013 4581 with5973 a strange5236 god,433 whom834 he shall acknowledge5234 and increase7235 with glory:3519 and he shall cause them to rule4910 over many,7227 and shall divide2505 the land127 for gain.4242

40  And at the time6256 of the end7093 shall the king4428 of the south5045 push5055 at5973 him: and the king4428 of the north6828 shall come against him like a whirlwind,8175 5921 with chariots,7393 and with horsemen,6571 and with many7227 ships;591 and he shall enter935 into the countries,776 and shall overflow7857 and pass over.5674

41  He shall enter935 also into the glorious6643 land,776 and many7227 countries shall be overthrown:3782 but these428 shall escape4422 out of his hand,4480 3027 even Edom,123 and Moab,4124 and the chief7225 of the children1121 of Ammon.5983

42  He shall stretch forth7971 his hand3027 also upon the countries:776 and the land776 of Egypt4714 shall not3808 escape.1961 6413

43  But he shall have power4910 over the treasures4362 of gold2091 and of silver,3701 and over all3605 the precious things2530 of Egypt:4714 and the Libyans3864 and the Ethiopians3569 shall be at his steps.4703

44  But tidings8052 out of the east4480 4217 and out of the north4480 6828 shall trouble926 him: therefore he shall go forth3318 with great1419 fury2534 to destroy,8045 and utterly to make away2763 many.7227

45  And he shall plant5193 the tabernacles168 of his palace643 between996 the seas3220 in the glorious6643 holy6944 mountain;2022 yet he shall come935 to5704 his end,7093 and none369 shall help5826 him.

Daniel 12: 1-13

1  And at that1931 time6256 shall Michael4317 stand up,5975 the great1419 prince8269 which standeth5975 for5921 the children1121 of thy people:5971 and there shall be1961 a time6256 of trouble,6869 such as834 never3808 was1961 since there was4480 1961 a nation1471 even to5704 that same1931 time:6256 and at that1931 time6256 thy people5971 shall be delivered,4422 every one3605 that shall be found4672 written3789 in the book.5612

2  And many7227 of them that sleep4480 3463 in the dust6083 of the earth127 shall awake,6974 some428 to everlasting5769 life,2416 and some428 to shame2781 and everlasting5769 contempt.1860

3  And they that be wise7919 shall shine2094 as the brightness2096 of the firmament;7549 and they that turn many to righteousness6663 7227 as the stars3556 forever5769 and ever.5703

4  But thou,859 O Daniel,1840 shut up5640 the words,1697 and seal2856 the book,5612 even to5704 the time6256 of the end:7093 many7227 shall run to and fro,7751 and knowledge1847 shall be increased.7235

5  Then I589 Daniel1840 looked,7200 and, behold,2009 there stood5975 other312 two,8147 the one259 on this side2008 of the bank8193 of the river,2975 and the other259 on that side2008 of the bank8193 of the river.2975

6  And one said559 to the man376 clothed3847 in linen,906 which834 was upon4480 4605 the waters4325 of the river,2975 How long5704 4970 shall it be to the end7093 of these wonders?6382

7  And I heard8085 853 the man376 clothed3847 in linen,906 which834 was upon4480 4605 the waters4325 of the river,2975 when he held up7311 his right hand3225 and his left hand8040 unto413 heaven,8064 and swore7650 by him that liveth2416 forever5769 that3588 it shall be for a time,4150 times,4150 and a half;2677 and when he shall have accomplished3615 to scatter5310 the power3027 of the holy6944 people,5971 all3605 these428 things shall be finished.3615

8  And I589 heard,8085 but I understood995 not:3808 then said559 I, O my Lord,113 what4100 shall be the end319 of these428 things?

9  And he said,559 Go thy way,1980 Daniel:1840 for3588 the words1697 are closed up5640 and sealed2856 till5704 the time6256 of the end.7093

10  Many7227 shall be purified,1305 and made white,3835 and tried;6884 but the wicked7563 shall do wickedly:7561 and none3808 3605 of the wicked7563 shall understand;995 but the wise7919 shall understand.995

11  And from the time4480 6256 that the daily8548 sacrifice shall be taken away,5493 and the abomination8251 that maketh desolate8074 set up,5414 there shall be a thousand505 two hundred3967 and ninety8673 days.3117

12  Blessed835 is he that waiteth,2442 and cometh5060 to the thousand505 three7969 hundred3967 and five2568 and thirty7970 days.3117

13  But go thou thy way859 1980 till the end7093 be: for thou shalt rest,5117 and stand5975 in thy lot1486 at the end7093 of the days.3117
