1 H1113 Belshazzar H4430 the king H5648 made H7229 a great H3900 feast H506 to a thousand H7261 of his lords, H8355 and drank H2562 wine H6903 before H506 the thousand.
2 H1113 Belshazzar, H2942 while he tasted H2562 the wine, H560 commanded H858 to bring H1722 the golden H3702 and silver H3984 vessels H5020 which Nebuchadnezzar H2 his father H5312 had taken H4481 out of H1965 the temple H3390 which was in Jerusalem; H4430 that the king H7261 and his lords, H7695 his wives H3904 and his concubines, H8355 might drink therefrom.
3 H116 Then H858 they brought H1722 the golden H3984 vessels H5312 that were taken H4481 out of H1965 the temple H1005 of the house H426 of God H3390 which was at Jerusalem; H4430 and the king H7261 and his lords, H7695 his wives H3904 and his concubines, H8355 drank from them.
4 H8355 They drank H2562 wine, H7624 and praised H426 the gods H1722 of gold, H3702 and of silver, H5174 of brass, H6523 of iron, H636 of wood, H69 and of stone.
5 H8160 In the same hour H5312 came forth H677 the fingers H606 of a man's H3028 hand, H3790 and wrote H6903 over against H5043 the candlestick H5922 upon H1528 the plaster H3797 of the wall H4430 of the king's H1965 palace: H4430 and the king H2370 saw H6447 the part H3028 of the hand H3790 that wrote.
6 H116 Then H4430 the king's H2122 countenance H8133 was changed H7476 in him, and his thoughts H927 troubled H7001 him; and the joints H2783 of his loins H8271 were loosed, H755 and his knees H5368 smote H1668 one H1668 against another.
7 H4430 The king H7123 cried H2429 aloud H5954 to bring H826 in the enchanters, H3779 the Chaldeans, H1505 and the soothsayers. H4430 The king H6032 spake H560 and said H2445 to the wise H895 men of Babylon, H606 Whosoever H7123 shall read H1836 this H3792 writing, H2324 and show H6591 me the interpretation H3848 thereof, shall be clothed H711 with purple, H2002 and have a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 his neck, H8523 and shall be the third H7981 ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
8 H116 Then H5954 came H3606 in all H4430 the king's H2445 wise H3546 men; but they could H3809 not H7123 read H3792 the writing, H3046 nor make known H4430 to the king H6591 the interpretation.
9 H116 Then H4430 was king H1113 Belshazzar H7690 greatly H927 troubled, H2122 and his countenance H8133 was changed H5922 in him, H7261 and his lords H7672 were perplexed.
10 H4433 Now the queen H6903 by reason H4406 of the words H4430 of the king H7261 and his lords H5954 came H4961 into the banquet H1005 house: H4433 the queen H6032 spake H560 and said, H4430 O king, H2418 live H5957 for ever; H409 let not H7476 thy thoughts H927 trouble H2122 thee, nor let thy countenance H8133 be changed.
11 H383 There is H1400 a man H4437 in thy kingdom, H7308 in whom is the spirit H6922 of the holy H426 gods; H3118 and in the days H2 of thy father H5094 light H7924 and understanding H2452 and wisdom, H2452 like the wisdom H426 of the gods, H7912 were found H4430 in him; and the king H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H2 thy father, H4430 the king, H2 I say, thy father, H6966 made H7229 him master H2749 of the magicians, H826 enchanters, H3779 Chaldeans, H1505 and soothsayers;
12 H6903 forasmuch as H3493 an excellent H7308 spirit, H4486 and knowledge, H7924 and understanding, H6590 interpreting H2493 of dreams, H263 and showing H280 of dark sentences, H8271 and dissolving H7001 of doubts, H7912 were found H1841 in the same Daniel, H4430 whom the king H7761 named H1096 Belteshazzar. H3705 Now H1841 let Daniel H7123 be called, H2324 and he will show H6591 the interpretation.
13 H116 Then H1841 was Daniel H5954 brought in H6925 before H4430 the king. H4430 The king H6032 spake H560 and said H1841 unto Daniel, H607 Art thou H1841 that Daniel, H4481 who art of H1123 the children H1547 of the captivity H3061 of Judah, H4430 whom the king H2 my father H858 brought H4481 out of H3061 Judah?
14 H8086 I have heard H7308 of thee, that the spirit H426 of the gods H5922 is in thee, H5094 and that light H7924 and understanding H3493 and excellent H2452 wisdom H7912 are found in thee.
15 H3705 And now H2445 the wise H826 men, the enchanters, H5954 have been brought H6925 in before H7123 me, that they should read H1836 this H3792 writing, H3046 and make known H6591 unto me the interpretation H3546 thereof; but they could H3809 not H2324 show H6591 the interpretation H4406 of the thing.
16 H576 But I H8086 have heard H5922 of thee, H3202 that thou canst H6590 give H6591 interpretations, H8271 and dissolve H7001 doubts; H3705 now H2006 if H3202 thou canst H7123 read H3792 the writing, H3046 and make known H6591 to me the interpretation H3848 thereof, thou shalt be clothed H711 with purple, H2002 and have a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 thy neck, H8531 and shalt be the third H7981 ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
17 H116 Then H1841 Daniel H6032 answered H560 and said H6925 before H4430 the king, H4978 Let thy gifts H1934 be H3052 to thyself, and give H5023 thy rewards H321 to another; H1297 nevertheless H7123 I will read H3792 the writing H4430 unto the king, H3046 and make known H6591 to him the interpretation.
18 H607 O thou H4430 king, H5943 the Most High H426 God H3052 gave H5020 Nebuchadnezzar H2 thy father H4437 the kingdom, H7238 and greatness, H3367 and glory, H1923 and majesty:
19 H4481 and because H7238 of the greatness H3052 that he gave H3606 him, all H5972 the peoples, H524 nations, H3961 and languages H1934 trembled H1763 and feared H4481 before H6925 him: H1934 whom he would H1934 he slew, H1934 and whom he would H1934 he kept alive; H1934 and whom he would H1934 he raised up, H1934 and whom he would H1934 he put down.
20 H3825 But when his heart H7313 was lifted up, H7308 and his spirit H8631 was hardened H2103 so that he dealt proudly, H5182 he was deposed H4481 from H4437 his kingly H3764 throne, H5709 and they took H3367 his glory H4481 from him:
21 H2957 and he was driven H4481 from H1123 the sons H606 of men, H3825 and his heart H7739 was made H5974 like H2423 the beasts', H4070 and his dwelling H6167 was with the wild asses; H2939 he was fed H6211 with grass H8450 like oxen, H1655 and his body H6647 was wet H2920 with the dew H8065 of heaven; H5705 until H3046 he knew H5943 that the Most High H426 God H7990 ruleth H4437 in the kingdom H606 of men, H6966 and that he setteth H5922 up over H4479 it whomsoever H6634 he will.
22 H607 And thou H1247 his son, H1113 O Belshazzar, H3809 hast not H8214 humbled H3825 thy heart, H6903 though H3046 thou knewest H3606 all H1836 this,
23 H7313 but hast lifted up H5922 thyself against H4756 the Lord H8065 of heaven; H858 and they have brought H3984 the vessels H1005 of his house H6925 before H607 thee, and thou H7261 and thy lords, H7695 thy wives H3904 and thy concubines, H8355 have drunk H2562 wine H7624 from them; and thou hast praised H426 the gods H3702 of silver H1722 and gold, H5174 of brass, H6523 iron, H636 wood, H69 and stone, H2370 which see H3809 not, H3809 nor H8086 hear, H3809 nor H3046 know; H426 and the God H3028 in whose hand H5396 thy breath H3606 is, and whose are all H735 thy ways, H3809 hast thou not H1922 glorified.
24 H116 Then H6447 was the part H3028 of the hand H7972 sent H4481 from H6925 before him, H1836 and this H3792 writing H7560 was inscribed.
25 H1836 And this H3792 is the writing H7560 that was inscribed: H4484 MENE, H4484 MENE, H8625 TEKEL, H6537 UPHARSIN.
26 H1836 This H6591 is the interpretation H4406 of the thing: H4484 MENE; H426 God H4483 hath numbered H4437 thy kingdom, H8000 and brought it to an end;
28 H6537 PERES; H4437 thy kingdom H6537 is divided, H3052 and given H4076 to the Medes H6540 and Persians.
29 H116 Then H560 commanded H1113 Belshazzar, H3848 and they clothed H1841 Daniel H711 with purple, H2002 and put a chain H1722 of gold H5922 about H6676 his neck, H3745 and made proclamation H5922 concerning H1934 him, that he should be H8531 the third H7990 ruler H4437 in the kingdom.
