31 “You, O king, were looking and also see, there was a solitary terrific sculpture; that sculpture, which was huge and also of phenomenal elegance, was standing in front of you, and also its look was outstanding. 32 The head of that sculpture was constructed from great gold, its bust and also its arms of silver, its stomach and also its upper legs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partially of iron and also partially of clay. 34 You proceeded looking till a rock was removed without hands, and also it struck the sculpture on its feet of iron and also clay and also squashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and also the gold were squashed all at the very same time and also ended up being like chaff from the summer season threshing floorings; and also the wind lugged them away to make sure that not a trace of them was discovered. But the rock that struck the sculpture ended up being a fantastic hill and also loaded the entire planet.
The Interpretation–Babylon the FirstKingdom
36 “This was the desire; currently we will certainly inform its analysis prior to the king. 37 You, O king, are the king of kings, to whom the God of paradise has actually offered the kingdom, the power, the toughness and also the magnificence; 38 and also any place the kids of guys stay, or the monsters of the area, or the birds of the skies, He has actually provided right into your hand and also has actually created you to subjugate them all. You are the head of gold.

39 After you there will certainly occur one more kingdom substandard to you, after that one more 3rd kingdom of bronze, which will certainly subjugate all the planet.
40 Then there will certainly be a 4th kingdom as solid as iron; because iron crushes and also shatters all points, so, like iron that barges in items, it will certainly squash and also damage all these in items. 41 In that you saw the feet and also toes, partially of potter’s clay and also partially of iron, it will certainly be a split kingdom; yet it will certainly have in it the durability of iron, because you saw the iron blended with typical clay. 42 As the toes of the feet were partially of iron and also partially of ceramic, so a few of the kingdom will certainly be solid and also component of it will certainly be breakable. 43 And because you saw the iron blended with typical clay, they will certainly incorporate with each other in the seed of guys; yet they will certainly not stick to each other, also as iron does not incorporate with ceramic.
44 In the days of those kings the God of paradise will certainly establish a kingdom which will certainly never ever be damaged, which kingdom will certainly not be left for one more individuals; it will certainly squash and also place an end to all these kingdoms, yet it will certainly itself sustain permanently. 45 Inasmuch as you saw that a rock was removed of the hill without hands which it squashed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and also the gold, the terrific God has actually made recognized to the king what will certainly happen in the future; so the desire holds true and also its analysis is credible.”.
46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar dropped on his face and also did tribute to Daniel, and also provided orders to offer to him an offering and also great smelling scent. 47 The king responded to Daniel and also stated, “Surely your God is a God of gods and also a Lord of kings and also a revealer of enigmas, given that you have actually had the ability to expose this secret.” 48 Then the king advertised Daniel and also provided him lots of terrific presents, and also he made him leader over the entire district of Babylon and also primary prefect over all the sensible guys ofBabylon 49 And Daniel made demand of the king, and also he selected Shadrach, Meshach and also Abed- nego over the management of the district of Babylon, while Daniel went to the king’s court.
