Daniel 5:1-31

1 King Baltasar made a great supper for his thousand grandees and wine was set before the thousand. 2 And as he was drinking, Baltasar gave an order upon tasting the wine, to bring the vessels of gold and silver which Nabuchodonosar his father had brought out of the temple at Jerusalem; and that the king and his nobles, and his concubines and his wives should drink out of them. 3 Accordingly the vessels of gold and silver which had been taken out of the temple of God at Jerusalem were brought, and the king and his nobles and his concubines and his wives drank out of them. 4 And having drunk wine they praised the gods of gold and silver and brass and wood and stone. 5 At that very hour there came forth fingers of a man's hand and wrote over against the lamp, on the plaistering of the wall of the king's palace. And the king beheld with astonishment the joint of the hand that was writing. 6 Whereupon the king's countenance changed and his thoughts troubled him and the joints of his loins were loosened and his knees smote one against another. 7 And the king cried aloud to bring in the magians, Chaldees, gazarenes. And he said to the wise men of Babylon, Whoever shall read this writing and explain to me the meaning, he shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold for his neck and shall be a chief, third in rank, in my kingdom. 8 And when all the king's wise men came in and could neither read the writing nor explain the meaning to the king, 9 king Baltasar was agitated and his countenance changed, and his nobles were in like trepidation. 10 Then the queen came to the banquet house and said, king, live forever! Let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor thy countenance change. 11 There is in thy kingdom a man, in whom is a spirit of a god, and in the clays of thy father, light and knowledge were found in him, and the king Nabuchodonosar thy father appointed him chief of the soothsayers, Chaldees, gazarenes, 12 because of the extraordinary spirit in him, and of his understanding and knowledge in the interpretation of dreams, and explaining hard sentences and solving difficulties; namely Daniel whom the king surnamed Baltasar. Now therefore let him be called in and he will tell thee the meaning of this. 13 Thereupon Daniel was brought in before the king. And the king said to Daniel, Thou art Daniel? One of the captives of Juda whom the king my father brought hither? 14 I have heard of thee that there is in thee a spirit of a god, and that light and knowledge and extraordinary wisdom have been found in thee. 15 Now the wise men, magians, gazarenes have come in before me to read that writing and make known to me the meaning of it, but they are not able to tell me. 16 But I have heard of thee that thou canst solve difficulties. Now therefore if thou canst read that writing and explain to me the meaning of it, thou shalt be clothed in purple and have a chain of gold for thy neck and be a chief, third in rank, in my kingdom. 17 Then Daniel said before the king, Let thy gifts be thine own, and give to another the honour of thy household; but the writing I will read, and I will explain to thee the meaning of it. 18 O king, God, the Most High gave to Nabuchodonosar thy father this kingdom and majesty and glory and honour. 19 And because of the majesty which he gave him, all the peoples, tribes and languages trembled and were struck with awe at his presence. Whom he would he slew, and whom he would he smote, and whom he would he set up, and whom he would he put down. 20 But when his heart became elated and his spirit emboldened to shew its arrogance, he was deposed from the throne of his kingdom and his glory was taken from him; 21 and he was driven from among men; and his heart was disposed to associate with the beasts; and his dwelling was with the wild asses; and he was fed with grass like an ox; and his body was bathed with the dew of heaven, till he was made to know that the Most High God ruleth over the kingdom of men and can give it to whom he will. 22 Now thou, Baltasar, his son, hast not therefore humbled thy heart before this God. Hast thou not known all these things? 23 Yet thou hast exalted thyself against the Lord God of heaven. And the vessels of his house have been brought before thee, and thou and thy nobles and thy concubines and thy wives have drunk wine out of them, and thou hast praised the gods of gold and silver and brass and iron and wood and stone which neither see nor hear, nor understand: but the God in whose hand is thy breath and all thy ways; him thou hast not glorified. 24 For this cause a joint of a hand hath been sent from his presence, and it hath sketched this writing. 25 Now this is what is written, Mane, Thekel, Phares. 26 The interpretation of the decree is this. Mane; God hath measured thy kingdom and brought it to a conclusion. 27 Thekel; It hath been weighed in a balance and found wanting. 28 Phares; Thy kingdom is taken away and given to Medes and Persians. 29 Then Baltasar gave orders and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold about his neck, and proclamation was made concerning him that he was a chief, third in rank, in the kingdom. 30 And that very night Baltasar the Chaldean king was slain, 31 and Darius the Mede assumed the kingdom, being sixty two years of age.

Micah 5:2

2 But as for thee, Bethlehem, thou house of Ephratha, art thou too little to be one of the chiliads of Juda? Out of thee one shall come forth for me to be the chief of Israel. His goings forth have been from the beginning; from the days of an age.

Revelation 1:1-20

1 A REVELATION of Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to shew to his servants things which must shortly come to pass, and which he sent by his angel, and signified to his servant John, 2 who hath testified the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, and what he saw. 3 Happy he who readeth, and they who hear the words of this prophecy; and keep the things that are written therein! For the time is at hand! 4 John to the seven congregations which are in Asia; favour be to you, and peace from him who is, and who was, and who is to come; and from the seven spirits which are before his throne; 5 and from Jesus Christ who is the faithful witness, the first born from the dead, and the sovereign of the kings of the earth. To him who hath loved us, and washed us from our sins with his blood, 6 and made us kings and priests to God, even his father to him be the glory and dominion for the ages of the ages. Amen. 7 Behold he is coming with clouds, and every eye shall see him, even they who pierced him; and for him all the tribes of the earth shall mourn. Yes, be it so. 8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end," saith the Lord, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." 9 I John, who am your brother, and a partaker in this affliction, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the island which is called Patmos, on the account of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, like the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, "I am the Alpha and the Omega; the first and the last," and "what thou seest, write in a book, and send it to the seven congregations which are in Asia, to Ephesus and to Smyrna, and to Pergamus, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea." 12 Whereupon I turned to look towards the voice which spake to me; and upon turning about, I saw seven golden candlesticks, 13 and in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks one like a son of man, clothed with a robe down to the feet, and girded about the breast with a golden girdle; 14 and as for his head, the hairs like wool were glittering white as snow, and his eyes were like a flame of fire; 15 and his feet were like fine brass, as if they were glowing in a furnace; and his voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword. And his countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw him I fell at his feet as one dead. Whereupon he laid his right hand on me, and said to me, "Fear not. I am the first and the last, 18 even he who liveth. Though I was dead yet behold I am alive, and live for the ages of the ages, Amen. And I have the keys of the mansion of the dead, and of death. 19 Write what thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which are about to be hereafter. 20 With respect to the hidden meaning of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks; the seven stars are the angels of the seven congregations and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven congregations.

Jeremiah 13:1-7

1 Thus saith the Lord, Go and get thee a linen girdle and gird it about thy loins; but it must not be washed with water. 2 And when I had procured the girdle according to the word of the Lord and had girded it about my loins, 3 a word of the Lord came to me saying, 4 Take the girdle which is about thy loins, and arise and go to the Euphrates and hide it there in the hole of the rock. 5 So I went and hid it by the Euphrates as the Lord commanded me. 6 And after many days the Lord said to me, "Arise and go to the Euphrates and take thence the girdle, which I commanded thee to hide there." 7 So I went to the river Euphrates and digged and took the girdle out of the place where I had buried it; and behold it was rotten and good for nothing.
