The Rise as well as Fall of the World, Part 3.
Daniel 2: 44–49 December 9,1979
31 “You, O king, were looking as well as see, there was a solitary excellent sculpture; that sculpture, which was big as well as of amazing elegance, was standing in front of you, as well as its look was amazing. 32 The head of that sculpture was made from great gold, its bust as well as its arms of silver, its stomach as well as its upper legs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partially of iron as well as partially of clay. 34 You proceeded looking up until a rock was removed without hands, as well as it struck the sculpture on its feet of iron as well as clay as well as squashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver as well as the gold were squashed all at the very same time as well as came to be like chaff from the summertime threshing floorings; as well as the wind lugged them away to make sure that not a trace of them was located. But the rock that struck the sculpture came to be a wonderful hill as well as 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 as well as the magnificence; 38 as well as 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 as well as has actually triggered you to subjugate them all. You are the head of gold.

39 After you there will certainly emerge 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 as well as shatters all points, so, like iron that barges in items, it will certainly squash as well as damage all these in items. 41 In that you saw the feet as well as toes, partially of potter’s clay as well as partially of iron, it will certainly be a separated kingdom; yet it will certainly have in it the sturdiness of iron, because you saw the iron blended with typical clay. 42 As the toes of the feet were partially of iron as well as partially of ceramic, so several of the kingdom will certainly be solid as well as component of it will certainly be weak. 43 And because you saw the iron blended with typical clay, they will certainly integrate with each other in the seed of guys; yet they will certainly not stick to each other, also as iron does not integrate 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 as well as place an end to all these kingdoms, yet it will certainly itself withstand for life. 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 as well as the gold, the excellent God has actually made recognized to the king what will certainly happen in the future; so the desire holds true as well as its analysis is reliable.”.
46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar dropped on his face as well as did tribute to Daniel, as well as offered orders to provide to him an offering as well as great smelling scent. 47 The king addressed Daniel as well as stated, “Surely your God is a God of gods as well as a Lord of kings as well as a revealer of enigmas, considering that you have actually had the ability to disclose this enigma.” 48 Then the king advertised Daniel as well as offered him numerous excellent presents, as well as he made him leader over the entire district of Babylon as well as primary prefect over all the sensible guys ofBabylon 49 And Daniel made demand of the king, as well as he designated Shadrach, Meshach as well as Abed- nego over the management of the district of Babylon, while Daniel went to the king’s court.
