King James Bible
O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know57 that the spirit of the holy gods [is] in thee, and no 3809 secret troubleth61 thee, tell59 me the visions of my dream that I have seen,57 and the interpretation thereof.
The leaves thereof [were] fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it [was] meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow88 under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt60 in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed82 of it.
He cried62 aloud, and said61 thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off67 his branches, shake off87 his leaves, and scatter67 his fruit: let the beasts get away60 from under it, and the fowls from his branches:
Nevertheless leave59 the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet75 with the dew of heaven, and [let] his portion [be] with the beasts in the grass of the earth:
This matter [is] by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know60 that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth60 it to whomsoever he will,60 and setteth up88 over it the basest of men.
This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen.57 Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare59 the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as 6903 1768 all the wise [men] of my kingdom are not able61 to make known86 unto me the interpretation: but thou [art] able;62 for the spirit of the holy gods [is] in thee.
Then Daniel, whose name [was] Belteshazzar, was astonied126 for one hour, and his thoughts troubled29 him. The king spake,61 and said,61 Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble29 thee. Belteshazzar answered61 and said,61 My lord, the dream [be] to them that hate61 thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.
Whose leaves [were] fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it [was] meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt,60 and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:60
And whereas the king saw57 a watcher and an holy one coming down61 from heaven, and saying,61 Hew the tree down, and destroy69 it; yet leave59 the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet75 with the dew of heaven, and [let] his portion [be] with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him;
That they shall drive62 thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be60 with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat60 grass as oxen, and they shall wet71 thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know60 that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth60 it to whomsoever he will.60
Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable60 unto thee, and break off59 thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy58 to the poor;61 if it may be60 a lengthening of thy tranquillity.
And they shall drive62 thee from men, and thy dwelling [shall be] with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat60 grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know60 that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth60 it to whomsoever he will.60
The same hour was the thing fulfilled57 upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven63 from men, and did eat60 grass as oxen, and his body was wet75 with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown57 like eagles' [feathers], and his nails like birds' [claws].
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up57 mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned60 unto me, and I blessed67 the most High, and I praised67 and honoured67 him that liveth for ever, whose dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom [is] from generation to generation:
And all the inhabitants61 of the earth [are] reputed63 as nothing: and he doeth62 according to his will58 in the army of heaven, and [among] the inhabitants61 of the earth: and none can stay70 his hand, or say60 unto him, What doest57 thou?
At the same time my reason returned60 unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned60 unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought60 unto me; and I was established90 in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added90 unto me.
