¶ Daniel 1 v1-7

{ heart }   [DA] 1v1

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim,
king of Judah,
came Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon,
unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v2

And the LORD gave Jehoiakim, king of Judah,
into his hand,
with part of the vessels of the house of GOD,
which he carried into the land of Shinar
to the house of his god;
and he brought the vessels
into the treasure house of his god.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v3

And the king spake unto Ashpenaz,
the master of his eunuchs,

That he should bring certain of the children of Israel,
and of the king's seed, and of the princes,

{ heart }   [DA] 1v4

Children in whom was no blemish,
but well favored, and skilful in all wisdom,
and skillful in knowledge, and understanding science,
and such as had ability in them
to stand in the king's palace,
and whom they might teach
the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v5

And the king appointed them
a daily provision of the king's meat,
and of the wine which he drank;
so nourishing them three years,
that at the end thereof
they might stand before the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v6

Now among these were of the children of Judah,
and Azariah,

{ heart }   [DA] 1v7

Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names;
for he gave unto Daniel the name of


And to Hananiah, of


And to Mishael, of


And to Azariah, of


¶ Daniel 1 v8-16

{ heart }   [DA] 1v8

But Daniel purposed in his heart

That he would not defile himself
with the portion of the king's meat,
nor with the wine which he drank;

he requested of the prince of the eunuchs

That he might not defile himself.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v9

Now GOD had brought Daniel into favor
and tender love
with the prince of the eunuchs.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v10

And the prince of the eunuchs
said unto Daniel,

I fear my lord, the king,
who hath appointed your meat and your drink;
for why should he see your faces worse liking
than the children which are of your sort?
then shall ye make me endanger my head
to the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v11

Then said Daniel to Melzar,
whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over
Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

{ heart }   [DA] 1v12

Prove thy servants, I beseech thee,

 ‘Ten days,
and let them give us pulse to eat,
and water to drink’.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v13

Then let our countenances be looked upon
before thee,
and the countenance of the children
that eat of the portion of the king's meat;
and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v14

So he consented to them in this matter,
and proved them ten days.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v15

And at the end of ten days
their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh
than all the children
which did eat the portion of the king's meat.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v16

Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat,
and the wine that they should drink,
and gave them pulse.

¶ Daniel 1 v17-21

{ heart }   [DA] 1v17

As for these four children,
GOD gave them knowledge and skill
in all learning and wisdom;
and Daniel had understanding
in all visions and dreams.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v18

Now, at the end of the days
that the king had said

He should bring them in,

Then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in
before Nebuchadnezzar.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v19

And the king communed with them;
and among them all was found none like
Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah;
therefore stood they before the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v20

And in all matters of wisdom and understanding,
that the king enquired of them,
he found them ten times better
than all the magicians and astrologers
that were in all his realm.

{ heart }   [DA] 1v21

And Daniel continued
even unto the first year of king Cyrus.

» Daniel 2

¶ Daniel 2 v1-12

{ heart }   [DA] 2v1

And in the second year
of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar,
Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams,
and wherewith his spirit was troubled,
and his sleep broke from him.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v2

Then the king commanded

To call

 ‘The magicians, and the astrologers,
and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans,’ 

For to show the king his dreams.

So they came and stood before the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v3

And the king said unto them,

I have dreamed a dream,
and my spirit was troubled to know

 ‘The dream’.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v4

Then spake the Chaldeans to the king
in Aramaic,

O king, live for ever;
tell thy servants the dream,
and we will show the interpretation.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v5

The king answered
and said to the Chaldeans,

The thing is gone from me.
If ye will not make known unto me

 ‘The dream,
with the interpretation thereof,’ 

Ye shall be cut in pieces,
and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v6

But if ye show the dream,
and the interpretation thereof,
ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards
and great honor;
therefore, show me the dream,
and the interpretation thereof.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v7

They answered again and said,

Let the king tell his servants the dream,
and we will show the interpretation of it.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v8

The king answered and said,

I know of certainty

 ‘That ye would gain the time,
because ye see the thing is gone from me’.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v9

But if ye will not make known unto me

 ‘The dream’ 

There is but one decree for you;
for ye have prepared lying
and corrupt words to speak before me,
till the time be changed;
therefore tell me the dream,
and I shall know

 ‘That ye can
show me the interpretation thereof’.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v10

The Chaldeans answered before the king,
and said,

There is not a man upon the earth
that can show the king's matter;
therefore, there is no king, lord, nor ruler,
that asked such things
at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v11

And it is a rare thing that the king requireth,
and there is none other that can show it
before the king,
except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v12

For this cause
the king was angry and very furious,
and commanded

To destroy all the wise men of Babylon.

¶ Daniel 2 v13-16

{ heart }   [DA] 2v13

And the decree went forth

That the wise men should be slain;

And they sought Daniel and his fellows
to be slain.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v14

Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom
to Arioch, the captain of the king's guard,
which was gone forth
to slay the wise men of Babylon.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v15

He answered
and said to Arioch, the king's captain,

Why is the decree so hasty
from the king?

Then Arioch made the thing known
to Daniel.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v16

Then Daniel went in,
and desired of the king

That he would give him time,
that he would show the king the interpretation.

¶ Daniel 2 v17-23

{ heart }   [DA] 2v17

Then Daniel went to his house,
and made the thing known
to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,
his companions;

{ heart }   [DA] 2v18

That they would desire

 ‘Mercies of the GOD of heaven
concerning this secret,’ 

That Daniel and his fellows should not perish
with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v19

Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel
in a night vision:
then Daniel blessed the GOD of heaven.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v20

Daniel answered and said,

Blessed be the NAME of GOD forever and ever;
for wisdom and might are HIS,

{ heart }   [DA] 2v21

And HE changeth the times and the seasons;
HE removeth kings, and setteth up kings;
HE giveth wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them that know


{ heart }   [DA] 2v22

HE revealeth the deep and secret things;
HE knoweth

 ‘What is in the darkness,’ 

And the light dwelleth with HIM.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v23

I thank THEE, and praise THEE,
O THOU GOD of my fathers,
WHO hast given me wisdom and might,
and hast made known unto me now

 ‘What we desired of THEE;’ 

For THOU hast now made known unto us

 ‘The king's matter’.

¶ Daniel 2 v24-30

{ heart }   [DA] 2v24

Therefore, Daniel went in unto Arioch,
whom the king had ordained

To destroy the wise men of Babylon

He went and said thus unto him,

Destroy not the wise men of Babylon:
bring me in before the king,
and I will show unto the king the interpretation.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v25

Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king
in haste,
and said thus unto him,

I have found a man of the captives of Judah,
that will make known unto the king

 ‘The interpretation’.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v26

The king answered and said to Daniel,
whose name was


Art thou able to make known unto me

 ‘The dream which I have seen,
and the interpretation thereof’?

{ heart }   [DA] 2v27

Daniel answered in the presence of the king,
and said,

 ‘The secret’ 

Which the king hath demanded
cannot the wise men,
the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers,
show unto the king;

{ heart }   [DA] 2v28

But there is a GOD in heaven
THAT revealeth secrets,
and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar

What shall be in the latter days.

Thy dream,
and the visions of thy head upon thy bed,
are these:

{ heart }   [DA] 2v29

As for thee, O king,
thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed,

 ‘What should come to pass hereafter;’ 

And HE THAT revealeth secrets
maketh known to thee

What shall come to pass.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v30

But as for me,
this secret is not revealed to me
for any wisdom that I have more than any living,
but for their sakes that shall make known

 ‘The interpretation’ 

To the king,
and that thou mightest know

 ‘The thoughts of thy heart’.

¶ Daniel 2 v31-35

{ heart }   [DA] 2v31

Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image.
This great image,
whose brightness was excellent,
stood before thee;
and the form thereof was terrible.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v32

This image's head was of fine gold,
his breast and his arms of silver,
his belly and his thighs of brass,

{ heart }   [DA] 2v33

His legs of iron,
his feet part of iron and part of clay.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v34

Thou sawest
until a stone was cut out without hands,
which smote the image upon his feet
that were of iron and clay,
and broke them to pieces.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v35

Then was the iron, the clay,
the brass, the silver, and the gold,
broken to pieces together,
and became like the chaff
of the summer threshing floors;
and the wind carried them away,
that no place was found for them;
and the stone that smote the image
became a great mountain,
and filled the whole earth.

¶ Daniel 2 v36-45

{ heart }   [DA] 2v36

This is the dream,
and we will tell the interpretation thereof
before the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v37

Thou, O king, art a king of kings;
for the GOD of heaven
hath given thee a kingdom,
power, and strength, and glory.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v38

And wheresoever the children of men dwell,
the beasts of the field
and the fowls of the heaven
hath HE given into thine hand,
and hath made thee ruler over them all.
thou art this head of gold.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v39

And after thee shall arise another kingdom
inferior to thee,
and another third kingdom of brass,
which shall bear rule over all the earth.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v40

And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron,
forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces
and subdueth all things;
and, as iron that breaketh all these,
shall it break in pieces and bruise.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v41

And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes,
part of potters' clay, and part of iron,
the kingdom shall be divided;
but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron,
forasmuch as thou sawest
the iron mixed with miry clay.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v42

And as the toes of the feet
were part of iron, and part of clay,
so the kingdom
shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v43

And whereas thou sawest
iron mixed with miry clay,
they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men;
but they shall not cleave one to another,
even as iron is not mixed with clay.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v44

And in the days of these kings
shall the GOD of heaven set up a kingdom,
which shall never be destroyed;
and the kingdom shall not be left to other people,
but it shall break in pieces
and consume all these kingdoms,
and it shall stand forever.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v45

Forasmuch as thou sawest
that the stone was cut out of the mountain
without hands,
and that it broke in pieces
the iron,
the brass,
the clay,
the silver,
and the gold,
the great GOD hath made known to the king

What shall come to pass hereafter;

And the dream is certain,
and the interpretation thereof sure.

¶ Daniel 2 v46-49

{ heart }   [DA] 2v46

Then the king, Nebuchadnezzar,
fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel,
and commanded

That they should offer an oblation
and sweet odors unto him.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v47

The king answered unto Daniel,
and said,

Of a truth it is,

 ‘That your GOD is a GOD of gods,
and a LORD of kings,
and a revealer of secrets,’ 

Seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v48

Then the king made Daniel a great man,
and gave him many great gifts,
and made him ruler
over the whole province of Babylon,
and chief of the governors
over all the wise men of Babylon.

{ heart }   [DA] 2v49

Then Daniel requested of the king,
and he

Set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego
over the affairs of the province of Babylon;

But Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

» Daniel 3

¶ Daniel 3 v1-7

{ heart }   [DA] 3v1

Nebuchadnezzar, the king,
made an image of gold,
whose height was threescore cubits,
and the breadth thereof six cubits;
he set it up in the plain of Dura,
in the province of Babylon.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v2

Then Nebuchadnezzar, the king,
sent to gather together
the princes,
the governors,
and the captains,
the judges,
the treasurers,
the counselors,
the sheriffs,
and all the rulers of the provinces,

To come to the dedication of the image

Which Nebuchadnezzar, the king, had set up.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v3

Then the princes,
the governors,
and captains,
the judges,
the treasurers,
the counselors,
the sheriffs,
and all the rulers of the provinces,
were gathered together
unto the dedication of the image
that Nebuchadnezzar, the king, had set up;
and they stood before the image
that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v4

Then an herald cried aloud,

To you it is commanded,
O people, nations, and languages,

{ heart }   [DA] 3v5

That at what time ye hear
the sound of the cornet,
and all kinds of music,
ye fall down and worship the golden image
that Nebuchadnezzar, the king, hath set up:

{ heart }   [DA] 3v6

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth,
shall the same hour be cast
into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v7

at that time, when all the people heard
the sound of the cornet,
and all kinds of music,
all the people, the nations, and the languages,
fell down and worshipped the golden image
that Nebuchadnezzar, the king, had set up.

¶ Daniel 3 v8-12

{ heart }   [DA] 3v8

at that time certain Chaldeans came near,
and accused the Jews.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v9

They spake
and said to the king, Nebuchadnezzar,

O king, live for ever.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v10

Thou, O king, hast made a decree,

 ‘That every man that shall hear
the sound of the cornet,
and dulcimer,
and all kinds of music,
shall fall down and worship the golden image’;

{ heart }   [DA] 3v11

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth,
that he should be cast
into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v12

There are certain Jews
whom thou hast set over the affairs
of the province of Babylon,
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego;
these men, O king, have not regarded thee;
they serve not thy gods,
nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

¶ Daniel 3 v13-18

{ heart }   [DA] 3v13

Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury

To bring
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

Then they brought these men
before the king.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v14

Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them,

Is it true,
O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,

 ‘Do not ye serve my gods,
nor worship the golden image
which I have set up’?

{ heart }   [DA] 3v15

Now if ye be ready
that at what time ye hear
the sound of the cornet,
and dulcimer,
and all kinds of music,
ye fall down and worship the image
which I have made,
but if ye worship not,
ye shall be cast the same hour
into the midst of a burning fiery furnace,
THAT shall deliver you out of my hands?

{ heart }   [DA] 3v16

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego
and said to the king,

O Nebuchadnezzar,
we are not careful to answer thee
in this matter.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v17

If it be so,
our GOD, WHOM we serve,
is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace,
and HE will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v18

But if not,
be it known unto thee, O king,

 ‘That we will not serve thy gods,
nor worship the golden image
which thou hast set up’.

¶ Daniel 3 v19-25

{ heart }   [DA] 3v19

Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury,
and the form of his visage was changed
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego;
he spake, and commanded

That they should heat the furnace
one seven times more
than it was wont to be heated.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v20

And he commanded
the most mighty men that were in his army

To bind
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
and to cast them
into the burning fiery furnace.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v21

Then these men were bound
in their coats, their hosen,
and their hats, and their other garments,
and were cast
into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v22

because the king's commandment was urgent,
and the furnace exceeding hot,
the flame of the fire slew those men
that took up
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v23

And these three men,
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
fell down bound
into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v24

Then Nebuchadnezzar, the king, was astounded,
and rose up in haste,
and spake,
and said unto his counselors,

Did not we cast three men, bound,
into the midst of the fire?

They answered and said unto the king,

True, O king.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v25

He answered and said,

Lo, I see four men loose, walking
in the midst of the fire,
and they have no hurt;
and the form of the FOURTH
is like the SON of GOD.

¶ Daniel 3 v26-27

{ heart }   [DA] 3v26

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near
to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace,
and spake, and said,

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
ye servants of the MOST HIGH GOD,
come forth, and come hither.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
came forth of the midst of the fire.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v27

And the princes, governors,
and captains, and the king's counselors,
being gathered together,
saw these men,
upon whose bodies the fire had no power,
nor was an hair of their head singed,
neither were their coats changed,
nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

¶ Daniel 3 v28-30

{ heart }   [DA] 3v28

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said,

Blessed be the GOD
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
WHO hath sent HIS ANGEL,
and delivered HIS servants that trusted in HIM,
and have changed the king's word,
and yielded their bodies,
that they might not serve nor worship any god,
except their own GOD.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v29

Therefore, I make a decree,

 ‘That every people, nation, and language,
which speak any thing amiss against the GOD
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
shall be cut in pieces,
and their houses shall be made a dunghill;
because there is no other GOD
THAT can deliver after this sort.

{ heart }   [DA] 3v30

Then the king promoted
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,
in the province of Babylon.

» Daniel 4

¶ Daniel 4 v1-3

{ heart }   [DA] 4v1

Nebuchadnezzar, the king,
unto all people, nations, and languages,
that dwell in all the earth;

 ‘Peace be multiplied unto you’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v2

I thought it good
to show the signs and wonders
that the HIGH GOD hath wrought
toward me.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v3

How great are HIS signs?
and how mighty are HIS wonders?
HIS kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and HIS dominion is from generation to generation.

¶ Daniel 4 v4-8

{ heart }   [DA] 4v4

I, Nebuchadnezzar, was at rest in mine house,
and flourishing in my palace.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v5

I saw a dream which made me afraid,
and the thoughts upon my bed
and the visions of my head troubled me.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v6

Therefore made I a decree

 ‘To bring in all the wise men of Babylon
before me,’ 

That they might make known unto me

 ‘The interpretation of the dream’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v7

Then came in the magicians, the astrologers,
the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers;
and I told the dream before them;
but they did not make known unto me

 ‘The interpretation thereof’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v8

But at the last Daniel came in before me,
(whose name was


According to the name of my god,
and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods)
and before him I told the dream,

¶ Daniel 4 v9-18

{ heart }   [DA] 4v9

Belteshazzar, master of the magicians,
because I know

 ‘That the spirit of the holy gods is in thee,
and no secret troubleth thee,’ 

Tell me the visions of my dream
that I have seen,
and the interpretation thereof.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v10

Thus were the visions of mine head
in my bed:
I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth,
and the height thereof was great.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v11

The tree grew, and was strong,
and the height thereof reached unto heaven,
and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:

{ heart }   [DA] 4v12

The leaves thereof were fair,
and the fruit thereof much,
and in it was meat for all;
the beasts of the field had shadow under it,
and the fowls of the heaven
dwelt in the boughs thereof,
and all flesh was fed of it.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v13

I saw in the visions of my head
upon my bed,
and, behold, a watcher and an holy one
came down from heaven;

{ heart }   [DA] 4v14

He cried aloud, and said thus:

 ‘Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches,
shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit;
let the beasts get away from under it,
and the fowls from his branches’:

{ heart }   [DA] 4v15

leave 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 wet with the dew of heaven,
and let his portion be with the beasts
in the grass of the earth.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v16

Let his heart be changed from man's,
and let a beast's heart be given unto him;
and let seven times pass over him.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v17

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 know

That the MOST HIGH ruleth
in the kingdom of men,
and giveth it to whomsoever HE will,
and setteth up over it the basest of men’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v18

This dream I, king Nebuchadnezzar, have seen.
Now thou, O Belteshazzar,
declare the interpretation thereof,
forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom
are not able to make known unto me

 ‘The interpretation;’ 

But thou art able;
for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.

¶ Daniel 4 v19-27

{ heart }   [DA] 4v19

Then Daniel, whose name was


Was astounded for one hour,
and his thoughts troubled him:
The king spake, and said,

let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof,
trouble thee.’ 

Belteshazzar answered and said,

 ‘My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee,
and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v20

The tree that thou sawest,
which grew, and was strong,
whose height reached unto the heaven,
and the sight thereof to all the earth;

{ heart }   [DA] 4v21

Whose leaves were fair,
and the fruit thereof much,
and in it was meat for all;
under which the beasts of the field dwelt,
and upon whose branches
the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:

{ heart }   [DA] 4v22

It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong;
for thy greatness is grown,
and reacheth unto heaven,
and thy dominion to the end of the earth.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v23

And whereas the king saw
a watcher and an holy one
coming down from heaven,
and saying,

 ‘Hew the tree down, and destroy it;
yet leave 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 wet with the dew of heaven,
and let his portion be with the beasts of the field,
till seven times pass over him’;

{ heart }   [DA] 4v24

This is the interpretation, O king,
and this is the decree of the MOST HIGH,
which is come upon my lord, the king:

{ heart }   [DA] 4v25

That they shall drive thee from men,
and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field,
and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen,
and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven,
and seven times shall pass over thee,
till thou know

 ‘That the MOST HIGH ruleth
in the kingdom of men,
and giveth it to whomsoever HE will’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v26

And whereas they commanded

 ‘To leave the stump of the tree roots;’ 

Thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee,
after that thou shalt have known

 ‘That the heavens do rule’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v27

Wherefore, O king,
let my counsel be acceptable unto thee,
and break off thy sins by righteousness,
and thine iniquities
by showing mercy to the poor;
if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.

¶ Daniel 4 v28-33

{ heart }   [DA] 4v28

All this came upon the king,

{ heart }   [DA] 4v29

At the end of twelve months
he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v30

The king spake, and said,

 ‘Is not this great Babylon,
that I have built
for the house of the kingdom
by the might of my power,
and for the honor of my majesty’?

{ heart }   [DA] 4v31

While the word was in the king's mouth,
there fell a Voice from heaven,

O king Nebuchadnezzar,
to thee it is spoken;

 ‘The kingdom is departed from thee’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v32

And they shall drive thee from men,
and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field;
they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen,
and seven times shall pass over thee,
until thou know

 ‘That the MOST HIGH ruleth
in the kingdom of men,
and giveth it to whomsoever HE will’.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v33

The same hour was the thing fulfilled
upon Nebuchadnezzar;
and he was driven from men,
and did eat grass as oxen,
and his body was wet with the dew of heaven,
till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers,
and his nails like birds' claws.

¶ Daniel 4 v34-37

{ heart }   [DA] 4v34

And at the end of the days
I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted up mine eyes unto heaven,
and mine understanding returned unto me,
and I blessed the MOST HIGH,
and I praised and honored HIM THAT liveth forever,
WHOSE dominion is an everlasting dominion,
and HIS kingdom is from generation to generation.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v35

And all the inhabitants of the earth
are reputed as nothing;
and HE doeth according to HIS will
in the army of heaven,
and among the inhabitants of the earth,
and none can stay HIS hand,
or say unto HIM,

 ‘What doest THOU’?

{ heart }   [DA] 4v36

At the same time
my reason returned unto me;
and for the glory of my kingdom,
mine honor and brightness returned unto me;
and my counselors and my lords sought unto me;
and I was established in my kingdom,
and excellent majesty was added unto me.

{ heart }   [DA] 4v37

Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol
and honor the KING of heaven,
all WHOSE works are truth,
and HIS ways judgment;
and those that walk in pride HE is able to abase.

» Daniel 5

¶ Daniel 5 v1-4

{ heart }   [DA] 5v1

Belshazzar, the king,
made a great feast to a thousand of his lords,
and drank wine before the thousand.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v2

Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine,

To bring the golden and silver vessels
which his father, Nebuchadnezzar,
had taken out of the temple
which was in Jerusalem;

That the king, and his princes,
his wives, and his concubines,
might drink therein.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v3

Then they brought the golden vessels
that were taken out
of the temple of the house of GOD,
which was at Jerusalem;
and the king, and his princes,
his wives, and his concubines,
drank in them.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v4

They drank wine, and praised the gods
of gold,
and of silver,
of brass,
of iron,
of wood,
and of stone.

¶ Daniel 5 v5-8

{ heart }   [DA] 5v5

In the same hour
came forth fingers of a MAN'S HAND,
and wrote over against the lampstick
upon the plaster of the king's palace;
and the king saw the part of the HAND that wrote.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v6

Then the king's countenance was changed,
and his thoughts troubled him,
so that the joints of his loins were loosed,
and his knees smote one against another.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v7

The king cried aloud

To bring in the astrologers,
the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers.

And the king spake,
and said to the wise men of Babylon,

Whosoever shall read this writing,
and show me the interpretation thereof,
shall be clothed with scarlet,
and have a chain of gold about his neck,
and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v8

Then came in all the king's wise men;
but they could not read the writing,
nor make known to the king

The interpretation thereof.

¶ Daniel 5 v9-12

{ heart }   [DA] 5v9

Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled,
and his countenance was changed in him,
and his lords were astounded.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v10

Now the queen,
by reason of the words of the king and his lords,
came into the banquet house;
and the queen spake and said,

O king, live forever;
let not thy thoughts trouble thee,
nor let thy countenance be changed:

{ heart }   [DA] 5v11

There is a man in thy kingdom,
in whom is the spirit of the holy gods;
and in the days of thy father
light and understanding and wisdom,
like the wisdom of the gods,
was found in him,
whom the king, Nebuchadnezzar,
thy father, the king,
I say,

 ‘Thy father, made master of the magicians,
astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers’;

{ heart }   [DA] 5v12

Forasmuch as an excellent spirit,
and knowledge and understanding,
interpreting of dreams,
and showing of hard sentences,
and dissolving of doubts,
were found in the same Daniel,
whom the king named


Now let Daniel be called,
and he will show the interpretation.

¶ Daniel 5 v13-16

{ heart }   [DA] 5v13

Then was Daniel brought in before the king.
And the king spake and said unto Daniel,

Art thou that Daniel,
which art of the children of the captivity of Judah,
whom the king, my father, brought out of Jewry?

{ heart }   [DA] 5v14

I have even heard of thee,
that the spirit of the gods is in thee,
and that light and understanding
and excellent wisdom is found in thee.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v15

And now the wise men, the astrologers,
have been brought in before me,
that they should read this writing,
and make known unto me

 ‘The interpretation thereof;’ 

But they could not show
the interpretation of the thing:

{ heart }   [DA] 5v16

And I have heard of thee,
that thou canst make interpretations,
and dissolve doubts;
now, if thou canst read the writing,
and make known to me

 ‘The interpretation thereof,’ 

Thou shalt be clothed with scarlet,
and have a chain of gold about thy neck,
and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.

¶ Daniel 5 v17-28

{ heart }   [DA] 5v17

Then Daniel answered
and said before the king,

Let thy gifts be to thyself,
and give thy rewards to another;
yet I will read the writing unto the king,
and make known to him

 ‘The interpretation’.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v18

O thou king,
gave Nebuchadnezzar, thy father,
a kingdom,
and majesty,
and glory,
and honor;

{ heart }   [DA] 5v19

And for the majesty that HE gave him,
all people, nations, and languages,
trembled and feared before him.
Whom he would he slew;
and whom he would he kept alive;
and whom he would he set up;
and whom he would he put down.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v20

But when his heart was lifted up,
and his mind hardened in pride,
he was deposed from his kingly throne,
and they took his glory from him.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v21

And he was driven from the sons of men;
and his heart was made like the beasts,
and his dwelling was with the wild asses;
they fed him with grass like oxen,
and his body was wet with the dew of heaven;
till he knew

 ‘That the MOST HIGH GOD ruled
in the kingdom of men,
and that HE appointeth over it
whomsoever HE will’.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v22

And thou, his son, O Belshazzar,
hast not humbled thine heart,
though thou knewest

 ‘All this’,

{ heart }   [DA] 5v23

But hast lifted up thyself
against the LORD of heaven;
and they have brought the vessels of HIS house
before thee,
and thou, and thy lords,
thy wives, and thy concubines,
have drunk wine in them;
and thou hast praised the gods
of silver,
and gold,
of brass,
and stone,
which see not, nor hear, nor know;
and the GOD in WHOSE hand thy breath is,
and WHOSE are all thy ways,
hast thou not glorified.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v24

Then was the part of the HAND sent
from HIM,
and this writing was written.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v25

And this is the writing that was written,


{ heart }   [DA] 5v26

This is the interpretation of the thing:


GOD hath numbered thy kingdom,
and finished it.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v27


Thou art weighed in the balances,
and art found wanting.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v28


Thy kingdom is divided,
and given to the Medes and Persians.

¶ Daniel 5 v29-31

{ heart }   [DA] 5v29

Then commanded Belshazzar,
and they clothed Daniel with scarlet,
and put a chain of gold about his neck,
and made a proclamation concerning him,

That he should be the third ruler
in the kingdom.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v30

In that night
was Belshazzar, the king of the Chaldeans, slain.

{ heart }   [DA] 5v31

And Darius, the Median took the kingdom,
being about threescore and two years old.

» Daniel 6

¶ Daniel 6 v1-9

{ heart }   [DA] 6v1

It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom
an hundred and twenty princes,
which should be over the whole kingdom;

{ heart }   [DA] 6v2

And over these, three presidents,
(of whom Daniel was first)
that the princes might give accounts unto them,
and the king should have no damage.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v3

Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents,
and princes,
because an excellent spirit was in him;
and the king thought

To set him over the whole realm.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v4

Then the presidents and princes

To find occasion against Daniel
concerning the kingdom;

But they could find none occasion, nor fault;
forasmuch as he was faithful,
neither was there any error or fault found in him.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v5

Then said these men,

We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel,
except we find it against him
concerning the law of his GOD.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v6

Then these presidents and princes
assembled together to the king,
and said thus unto him,

King Darius, live forever.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v7

All the presidents of the kingdom,
the governors,
and the princes,
the counselors,
and the captains,
have consulted together

 ‘To establish a royal statute,
and to make a firm decree,

That whosoever
shall ask a petition of any god or man
for thirty days,
save of thee, O king,
he shall be cast into the den of lions’.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v8

Now, O king,
establish the decree, and sign the writing,
that it be not changed,
according to the law of the Medes and Persians,
which altereth not.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v9

Wherefore, king Darius
signed the writing and the decree.

¶ Daniel 6 v10-13

{ heart }   [DA] 6v10

Now when Daniel knew

That the writing was signed,

He went into his house;
and his windows being open in his chamber
toward Jerusalem,
he kneeled upon his knees three times a day,
and prayed, and gave thanks before his GOD,
as he did aforetime.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v11

Then these men assembled,
and found Daniel praying
and making supplication before his GOD.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v12

Then they came near, and spake before the king
concerning the king's decree,

Hast thou not signed a decree,

 ‘That every man
that shall ask a petition of any god or man
within thirty days,
save of thee, O king,
shall be cast into the den of lions’?

The king answered and said,

The thing is true,
according to the law of the Medes and Persians,
which altereth not.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v13

Then answered they and said before the king,

That Daniel,
which is of the children of the captivity of Judah,
regardeth not thee, O king,
nor the decree that thou hast signed,
but maketh his petition three times a day.

¶ Daniel 6 v14-17

{ heart }   [DA] 6v14

Then the king, when he heard these words,
was sore displeased with himself,
and set his heart on Daniel

To deliver him;

And he labored till the going down of the sun
to deliver him.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v15

Then these men assembled unto the king,
and said unto the king,

Know, O king,

 ‘That the law of the Medes and Persians is,

That no decree nor statute
which the king establisheth
may be changed’.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v16

Then the king commanded,
and they brought Daniel,
and cast him into the den of lions:
now the king spake and said unto Daniel,

Thy GOD, WHOM thou servest continually,
HE will deliver thee.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v17

And a stone was brought,
and laid upon the mouth of the den;
and the king sealed it with his own signet,
and with the signet of his lords;
that the purpose might not be changed
concerning Daniel.

¶ Daniel 5 v18-24

{ heart }   [DA] 6v18

Then the king went to his palace,
and passed the night fasting;
neither were instruments of music brought before him;
and his sleep went from him.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v19

Then the king arose very early in the morning,
and went in haste unto the den of lions.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v20

And when he came to the den,
he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel;
and the king spake and said to Daniel,

O Daniel, servant of the living GOD,
is thy GOD, WHOM thou servest continually,
able to deliver thee from the lions?

{ heart }   [DA] 6v21

Then said Daniel unto the king,

O king, live forever.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v22

My GOD hath sent HIS Angel,
and hath shut the lions' mouths,
that they have not hurt me;
forasmuch as before HIM
innocency was found in me;
and also before thee, O king,
have I done no hurt.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v23

Then was the king exceedingly glad for him,
and commanded

That they should take Daniel up
out of the den.

So Daniel was taken up out of the den,
and no manner of hurt was found upon him,
because he believed in his GOD’.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v24

And the king commanded,
and they brought those men
which had accused Daniel,
and they cast them into the den of lions,
them, their children, and their wives;
and the lions had the mastery of them,
and broke all their bones in pieces
or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

¶ Daniel 6 v25-28

{ heart }   [DA] 6v25

Then king Darius wrote
unto all people, nations, and languages,
that dwell in all the earth:

Peace be multiplied unto you.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v26

I make a decree,

 ‘That in every dominion of my kingdom
men tremble and fear before the GOD of Daniel;
for HE is the living GOD,
and steadfast forever,
and HIS kingdom
that which shall not be destroyed,
and HIS dominion shall be even unto the end’.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v27

HE delivereth and rescueth,
and HE worketh signs and wonders
in heaven and in earth,
WHO hath delivered Daniel
from the power of the lions.

{ heart }   [DA] 6v28

So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius,
and in the reign of Cyrus, the Persian.

» Daniel 7

¶ Daniel 7 v1-8

{ heart }   [DA] 7v1

In the first year of Belshazzar, king of Babylon,
Daniel had a dream and visions of his head
upon his bed;
then he wrote the dream,
and told the sum of the matters.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v2

Daniel spake and said,

I saw in my vision by night,

 ‘And, behold, the four winds of the heaven
strove upon the great sea’.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v3

And four great beasts came up from the sea,
diverse one from another.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v4

The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings;
I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked,
and it was lifted up from the earth,
and made stand upon the feet as a man,
and a man's heart was given to it.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v5

And, behold, another beast, a second, like to a bear,
and it raised up itself on one side,
and it had three ribs in the mouth of it
between the teeth of it;
and they said thus unto it,

 ‘Arise, devour much flesh’.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v6

After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard,
which had upon the back of it
four wings of a fowl;
the beast had also four heads;
and dominion was given to it.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v7

After this I saw in the night visions,

 ‘And, behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible,
and strong exceedingly;
and it had great iron teeth;
it devoured and broke in pieces,
and stamped the residue with the feet of it;
and it was diverse
from all the beasts that were before it;
and it had ten horns’.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v8

I considered the horns,
and, behold, there came up among them
another little horn,
before which there were three of the first horns
plucked up by the roots;
and, behold, in this horn were eyes
like the eyes of man,
and a mouth speaking great things.

¶ Daniel 7 v9-10

{ heart }   [DA] 7v9

I beheld till the thrones were cast down,
and the ANCIENT OF DAYS did sit,
WHOSE garment was white as snow,
and the hair of HIS head like the pure wool;
HIS throne was like the fiery flame,
and HIS wheels as burning fire.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v10

A fiery stream issued
and came forth from before HIM;
thousand thousands ministered unto HIM,
and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before HIM;
the judgment was set,
and the books were opened.

¶ Daniel 7 v11-14

{ heart }   [DA] 7v11

I beheld then
because of the voice of the great words
which the horn spake;
I beheld even till the beast was slain,
and his body destroyed,
and given to the burning flame.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v12

As concerning the rest of the beasts,
they had their dominion taken away;
yet their lives were prolonged
for a season and time.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v13

I saw in the night visions,

 ‘And, behold, ONE like the SON of MAN
came with the clouds of heaven,
and came to the ANCIENT OF DAYS,
and They brought HIM near before HIM’.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v14

And there was given HIM dominion, and glory,
and a kingdom,
that all people, nations, and languages,
should serve HIM;
HIS dominion is an everlasting dominion,
which shall not pass away,
and HIS kingdom
that, which shall not be destroyed.

¶ Daniel 7 v15-22

{ heart }   [DA] 7v15

I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit
in the midst of my body,
and the visions of my head troubled me.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v16

I came near unto One of Them That stood by,
and asked Him the truth of all this.
So He told me, and made me know

The interpretation of the things.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v17

These great beasts, which are four,
are four kings,
which shall arise out of the earth.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v18

But the Saints of the MOST HIGH
shall take the kingdom,
and possess the kingdom forever,
even forever and ever.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v19

Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast,
which was diverse from all the others,
exceedingly dreadful,
whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass;
which devoured, broke in pieces,
and stamped the residue with his feet;

{ heart }   [DA] 7v20

And of the ten horns that were in his head,
and of the other which came up,
and before whom three fell;
even of that horn that had eyes,
and a mouth that spake very great things,
whose look was more stout than his fellows.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v21

I beheld, and the same horn made war
with the Saints,
and prevailed against them,

{ heart }   [DA] 7v22

Until the ANCIENT OF DAYS came,
and judgment was given
to the Saints of the MOST HIGH;
and the time came
that the Saints possessed the kingdom.

¶ Daniel 7 v23-27

{ heart }   [DA] 7v23

Thus He said,

The fourth beast
shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth,
which shall be diverse from all kingdoms,
and shall devour the whole earth,
and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v24

And the ten horns out of this kingdom
are ten kings that shall arise;
and another shall rise after them;
and he shall be diverse from the first,
and he shall subdue three kings.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v25

And he shall speak great words
against the MOST HIGH,
and shall wear out
the Saints of the MOST HIGH,
and think to change times and laws;
and they shall be given into his hand
until a time and times and the dividing of time.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v26

But the judgment shall sit,
and they shall take away his dominion,
to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

{ heart }   [DA] 7v27

And the kingdom and dominion,
and the greatness of the kingdom
under the whole heaven,
shall be given to the people
of the Saints of the MOST HIGH,
WHOSE kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and all dominions shall serve and obey HIM.

¶ Daniel 7 v28

{ heart }   [DA] 7v28

Hitherto is the end of the matter.
As for me, Daniel,
my cogitations much troubled me,
and my countenance changed in me;
but I kept the matter in my heart.

» Daniel 8

¶ Daniel 8 v1-4

{ heart }   [DA] 8v1

In the third year
of the reign of king Belshazzar,

A vision appeared unto me, even unto me, Daniel,
after that which appeared unto me at the first.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v2

And I saw in a vision;
and it came to pass,
when I saw, that I was at Shushan
in the palace,
which is in the province of Elam;
and I saw in a vision,
and I was by the river of Ulai.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v3

Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw,
and, behold, there stood before the river
a ram which had two horns;
and the two horns were high;
but one was higher than the other,
and the higher came up last.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v4

I saw the ram pushing westward,
and northward, and southward,
so that no beasts might stand before him,
neither was there any
that could deliver out of his hand,
but he did according to his will,
and became great.

¶ Daniel 8 v5-7

{ heart }   [DA] 8v5

And as I was considering,
behold, an he-goat came from the west
on the face of the whole earth,
and touched not the ground;
and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v6

And he came to the ram that had two horns,
which I had seen standing before the river,
and ran unto him in the fury of his power.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v7

And I saw him come close unto the ram,
and he was moved with choler against him,
and smote the ram, and broke his two horns;
and there was no power in the ram
to stand before him,
but he cast him down to the ground,
and stamped upon him;
and there was none
that could deliver the ram out of his hand.

¶ Daniel 8 v8-12

{ heart }   [DA] 8v8

Therefore, the he-goat waxed very great;
and when he was strong,
the great horn was broken;
and for it came up four notable ones
toward the four winds of heaven.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v9

And out of one of them
came forth a little horn,
which waxed exceedingly great,
toward the south, and toward the east,
and toward the pleasant land.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v10

And it waxed great,
even to the host of heaven;
and it cast down some of the host and of the stars
to the ground,
and stamped upon them.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v11

Yea, he magnified himself
even to the PRINCE of the host,
and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away,
and the place of HIS sanctuary was cast down.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v12

And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice
by reason of transgression,
and it cast down the truth to the ground;
and it practiced, and prospered.

¶ Daniel 8 v13-14

{ heart }   [DA] 8v13

Then I heard one Saint speaking,
and another Saint said
unto That certain Saint Which spake,

How long shall be the vision
concerning the daily sacrifice,
and the transgression of desolation,
to give both the sanctuary and the host
to be trodden under foot?

{ heart }   [DA] 8v14

And He said unto me,

Unto two thousand and three hundred days;
then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

¶ Daniel 8 v15-26

{ heart }   [DA] 8v15

And it came to pass,
when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision,
and sought for the meaning,
then, behold, there stood before me
as the appearance of a MAN.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v16

And I heard a MAN'S voice
between the banks of Ulai,
WHICH called, and said,

make this man to understand the vision.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v17

So He came near where I stood;
and when He came,
I was afraid, and fell upon my face;
but He said unto me,

Understand, O son of man;
for at the time of the end
shall be the vision.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v18

Now as He was speaking with me,
I was in a deep sleep
on my face toward the ground;
but He touched me, and set me upright.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v19

And He said,

Behold, I will make thee know

 ‘What shall be
the last end of the indignation;
for at the time appointed
the end shall be.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v20

The ram which thou sawest,
having two horns,
are the kings of Media and Persia.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v21

And the rough goat
is the king of Greece,
and the great horn that is between his eyes
is the first king.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v22

Now that being broken,
whereas four stood up for it,
four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation,
but not in his power.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v23

And in the latter time of their kingdom,
when the transgressors are come to the full,
a king of fierce countenance,
and understanding dark sentences,
shall stand up.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v24

And his power shall be mighty,
but not by his own power;
and he shall destroy wonderfully,
and shall prosper, and practice,
and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v25

And through his policy
also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
and he shall magnify himself in his heart,
and by peace shall destroy many;
he shall also stand up
against the PRINCE of princes;
but he shall be broken without hand.

{ heart }   [DA] 8v26

And the vision of the evening and the morning
which was told
is true;
wherefore, shut thou up the vision;
for it shall be for many days.

¶ Daniel 8 v27

{ heart }   [DA] 8v27

And I, Daniel, fainted,
and was sick certain days;
afterward I rose up,
and did the king's business;
and I was astonished at the vision,
but none understood it.

» Daniel 9

¶ Daniel 9 v1-3

{ heart }   [DA] 9v1

In the first year of Darius, the son of Ahasuerus,
of the seed of the Medes,
which was made king
over the realm of the Chaldeans;

{ heart }   [DA] 9v2

In the first year of his reign
I, Daniel, understood by books
the number of the years,
whereof the word of the LORD
came to Jeremiah, the prophet,
that he would accomplish seventy years
in the desolations of Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v3

And I set my face unto the LORD GOD,
to seek by prayer and supplications,
with fasting,
and sackcloth, and ashes;

¶ Daniel 9 v4-14

{ heart }   [DA] 9v4

And I prayed unto the LORD, my GOD,
and made my confession,
and said,

 ‘O LORD, the great and dreadful GOD,
keeping the covenant and mercy
to them that love HIM,
and to them that keep HIS commandments’;

{ heart }   [DA] 9v5

We have sinned, and have committed iniquity,
and have done wickedly, and have rebelled,
even by departing from THY precepts
and from THY judgments;

{ heart }   [DA] 9v6

Neither have we hearkened
unto THY servants, the prophets,
which spake in THY NAME to our kings,
our princes, and our fathers,
and to all the people of the land.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v7

LORD, righteousness belongeth unto THEE,
but unto us confusion of faces,
as at this day;
to the men of Judah,
and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and unto all Israel,
that are near, and that are far off,
through all the countries
whither THOU hast driven them,
because of their trespass
that they have trespassed against THEE.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v8

LORD, to us belongeth confusion of face,
to our kings, to our princes,
and to our fathers,
because we have sinned against THEE.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v9

To the LORD, our GOD,
belong mercies and forgivenesses,
though we have rebelled against HIM;

{ heart }   [DA] 9v10

Neither have we obeyed the voice
of the LORD, our GOD,
to walk in HIS laws,
which HE set before us
by HIS servants, the prophets.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v11

Yea, all Israel have transgressed THY law,
even by departing,
that they might not obey THY voice;
therefore, the curse is poured upon us,
and the oath that is written in the law
of Moses, the servant of GOD,
because we have sinned against HIM.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v12

And HE hath confirmed HIS words,
which HE spake against us,
and against our judges that judged us,
by bringing upon us a great evil;
for under the whole heaven
hath not been done
as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v13

As it is written in the law of Moses,
all this evil is come upon us;
yet made we not our prayer
before the LORD, our GOD,
that we might turn from our iniquities,
and understand THY truth.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v14

Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil,
and brought it upon us;
for the LORD, our GOD, is righteous
in all HIS works which HE doeth;
for we obeyed not HIS voice.

¶ Daniel 9 v15-19

{ heart }   [DA] 9v15

And now, O LORD, our GOD,
THAT hast brought THY people forth
out of the land of Egypt
with a mighty hand,
and hast gotten THEE renown,
as at this day;
we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v16

LORD, according to all THY righteousness,
I beseech THEE,

 ‘Let THINE anger and THY fury
be turned away from thy city, Jerusalem,
THY holy mountain;’ 

for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers,
Jerusalem and THY people
are become a reproach to all that are about us.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v17

Now, therefore, O our GOD,
hear the prayer of THY servant,
and his supplications,
and cause THY face to shine
upon THY sanctuary that is desolate,
for the LORD'S sake.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v18

O my GOD,
incline THINE ear, and hear;
open THINE eyes, and behold our desolations,
and the city which is called by THY NAME;
for we do not present our supplications
before THEE
for our righteousnesses,
but for THY great mercies.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v19

O LORD, hear;
O LORD, forgive;
O LORD, hearken and do;
defer not,
for THINE OWN sake, O my GOD;
for THY city and THY people
are called by THY NAME.

¶ Daniel 9 v20-23

{ heart }   [DA] 9v20

And whiles I was speaking, and praying,
and confessing my sin
and the sin of my people Israel,
and presenting my supplication
before the LORD, my GOD,
for the holy mountain of my GOD;

{ heart }   [DA] 9v21

Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer,
even the Man, Gabriel,
Whom I had seen in the vision
at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly,
touched me
about the time of the evening oblation.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v22

And He informed me, and talked with me,
and said,

O Daniel, I Am now come forth
to give thee skill and understanding.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v23

At the beginning of thy supplications,
the commandment came forth,
and I Am come to show thee;
for thou art greatly beloved.
Therefore understand the matter,
and consider the vision.

¶ Daniel 9 v24-27

{ heart }   [DA] 9v24

Seventy weeks are determined
upon thy people and upon thy holy city,
to finish the transgression,
and to make an end of sins,
and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
and to bring in everlasting righteousness,
and to seal up the vision and prophecy,
and to anoint the MOST HOLY.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v25

Know, therefore, and understand,

 ‘That from the going forth of the commandment
to restore and to build Jerusalem
unto the MESSIAH the PRINCE,
shall be seven weeks,
and threescore and two weeks;
the street shall be built again, and the wall,
even in troublous times.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v26

And after threescore and two weeks
shall MESSIAH be cut off,
but not for HIMSELF;
and the people of the prince that shall come
shall destroy the city and the sanctuary;
and the end thereof shall be with a flood,
and unto the end of the war
desolations are determined.

{ heart }   [DA] 9v27

And he shall confirm the covenant with many
for one week;
and in the midst of the week
he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation
to cease,
and for the overspreading of abominations
he shall make it desolate,
even until the consummation,
and that determined
shall be poured upon the desolate.

» Daniel 10

¶ Daniel 10 v1

{ heart }   [DA] 10v1

In the third year of Cyrus, king of Persia,
a thing was revealed unto Daniel,
(whose name was called


And the thing was true,
but the time appointed was long;
and he understood the thing,
and had understanding of the vision.

¶ Daniel 10 v2-9

{ heart }   [DA] 10v2

In those days
I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v3

I ate no pleasant bread,
neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth,
neither did I anoint myself at all,
till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v4

And in the four and twentieth day
of the first month,
as I was by the side of the great river,
which is Hiddekel,

{ heart }   [DA] 10v5

Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked,
and, behold, a certain Man clothed in linen,
Whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz;

{ heart }   [DA] 10v6

His body also was like the beryl,
and His face as the appearance of lightning,
and His eyes as lamps of fire,
and His arms and His feet
like in color to polished brass,
and the voice of His words
like the voice of a multitude.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v7

And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision;
for the men that were with me
saw not the vision,
but a great quaking fell upon them,
so that they fled to hide themselves.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v8

Therefore, I was left alone,
and saw this great vision,
and there remained no strength in me;
for my comeliness was turned in me
into corruption,
and I retained no strength.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v9

Yet heard I the voice of His words;
and when I heard the voice of His words,
then was I in a deep sleep on my face,
and my face toward the ground.

¶ Daniel 10 v10-14

{ heart }   [DA] 10v10

And, behold, an Hand touched me,
Which set me upon my knees
and upon the palms of my hands.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v11

And He said unto me,

O Daniel, a man greatly beloved,
understand the words that I speak unto thee,
and stand upright;
for unto thee Am I now sent.

And when He had spoken this word unto me,
I stood trembling.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v12

Then said He unto me,

Fear not, Daniel;
for from the first day
that thou diddest set thine heart
to understand,
and to chasten thyself before thy GOD,
thy words were heard,
and I Am come for thy words.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v13

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia
withstood Me one and twenty days;
but, lo, Michael, One of the Chief Princes,
came to help Me;
and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v14

Now I Am come to make thee understand

 ‘What shall befall thy people
in the latter days;’ 

For yet the vision is for many days.

¶ Daniel 10 v15-21

{ heart }   [DA] 10v15

And when He had spoken such words unto me,
I set my face toward the ground,
and I became dumb.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v16

And, behold,
One like the similitude of the sons of men
touched my lips;
then I opened my mouth, and spake,
and said unto Him That stood before me,

 ‘O my Lord,
by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me,
and I have retained no strength’.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v17

For how can the servant of This my Lord,
talk with This my Lord?
For as for me,
straightway there remained no strength in me,
neither is there breath left in me.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v18

Then there came again and touched me
One like the appearance of a man,
and He strengthened me,

{ heart }   [DA] 10v19

And said,

O man greatly beloved, fear not:
peace be unto thee,
be strong, yea be strong.

And when He had spoken unto me,
I was strengthened, and said,

 ‘Let my Lord speak;
for Thou hast strengthened me’.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v20

Then said He,

Knowest thou

 ‘Wherefore I come unto thee?’ 

And now will I return
to fight with the prince of Persia;
and when I Am gone forth,
lo, the prince of Greece shall come.

{ heart }   [DA] 10v21

But I will show thee
that which is noted in the Scripture of truth;
and there is none that holdeth with Me
in these things,
but Michael, your Prince.

» Daniel 11

¶ Daniel 11 v1

{ heart }   [DA] 11v1

Also I,
in the first year of Darius, the Mede,
even I,
stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

¶ Daniel 11 v2-4

{ heart }   [DA] 11v2

And now will I show thee the truth.

 ‘Behold, there shall stand up yet
three kings in Persia;
and the fourth shall be far richer than they all,
and by his strength through his riches
he shall stir up all
against the realm of Greece’.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v3

And a mighty king shall stand up,
that shall rule with great dominion,
and do according to his will.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v4

And when he shall stand up,
his kingdom shall be broken,
and shall be divided
toward the four winds of heaven;
and not to his posterity,
nor according to his dominion
which he ruled;
for his kingdom shall be plucked up,
even for others beside those.

¶ Daniel 11 v5-9

{ heart }   [DA] 11v5

And the king of the south shall be strong,
and one of his princes;
and he shall be strong above him,
and have dominion;
his dominion shall be a great dominion.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v6

And in the end of years
they shall join themselves together;
for the king's daughter of the south
shall come to the king of the north
to make an agreement,
but she shall not retain the power of the arm,
neither shall he stand, nor his arm;
but she shall be given up,
and they that brought her,
and he that begot her,
and he that strengthened her in these times.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v7

But out of a branch of her roots
shall one stand up in his estate,
which shall come with an army,
and shall enter into the fortress
of the king of the north,
and shall deal against them,
and shall prevail;

{ heart }   [DA] 11v8

And shall also carry captives into Egypt
their gods, with their princes,
and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold;
and he shall continue more years
than the king of the north.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v9

So the king of the south
shall come into his kingdom,
and shall return into his own land.

¶ Daniel 11 v10-20

{ heart }   [DA] 11v10

But his sons shall be stirred up,
and shall assemble a multitude of great forces;
and one shall certainly come,
and overflow, and pass through;
then shall he return,
and be stirred up, even to his fortress.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v11

And the king of the south
shall be moved with choler,
and shall come forth and fight with him,
even with the king of the north;
and he shall set forth a great multitude;
but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v12

And when he hath taken away the multitude,
his heart shall be lifted up;
and he shall cast down many ten thousands,
but he shall not be strengthened by it.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v13

For the king of the north shall return,
and shall set forth a multitude
greater than the former,
and shall certainly come, after certain years,
with a great army and with much riches.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v14

And in those times
there shall many stand up
against the king of the south;
also the robbers of thy people
shall exalt themselves to establish the vision;
but they shall fall.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v15

So the king of the north shall come,
and cast up a siege mount,
and take the most fenced cities;
and the arms of the south shall not withstand,
neither his chosen people,
neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v16

But he that cometh against him
shall do according to his own will,
and none shall stand before him;
and he shall stand in the glorious land,
which by his hand shall be consumed.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v17

He shall also set his face to enter
with the strength of his whole kingdom,
and upright ones with him;
thus shall he do;
and he shall give him the daughter of women,
corrupting her,
but she shall not stand on his side,
neither be for him.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v18

After this shall he turn his face unto the isles,
and shall take many,
but a prince for his own behalf
shall cause the reproach offered by him
to cease;
without his own reproach,
he shall cause it to turn upon him.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v19

Then he shall turn his face
toward the fort of his own land;
but he shall stumble and fall,
and not be found.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v20

Then shall stand up in his estate
a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom,
but within few days he shall be destroyed,
neither in anger, nor in battle.

¶ Daniel 11 v21-28

{ heart }   [DA] 11v21

And in his estate shall stand up a vile person,
to whom they shall not give
the honor of the kingdom;
but he shall come in peaceably,
and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v22

And with the arms of a flood
shall they be overflown from before him,
and shall be broken;
yea, also the prince of the covenant.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v23

And after the league made with him
he shall work deceitfully;
for he shall come up,
and shall become strong with a small people.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v24

He shall enter peaceably
even upon the fattest places of the province,
and he shall do
that which his fathers have not done,
nor his fathers' fathers;
he shall scatter among them
the prey,
and spoil,
and riches;
yea, and he shall forecast his devices
against the strongholds,
even for a time.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v25

And he shall stir up his power and his courage
against the king of the south
with a great army;
and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle
with a very great and mighty army,
but he shall not stand;
for they shall forecast devices against him.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v26

Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat
shall destroy him,
and his army shall overflow,
and many shall fall down slain.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v27

And both these kings' hearts shall be
to do mischief,
and they shall speak lies at one table,
but it shall not prosper;
for yet the end
shall be at the time appointed.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v28

Then shall he return into his land
with great riches,
and his heart shall be against the holy covenant;
and he shall do exploits,
and return to his own land.

¶ Daniel 11 v29-35

{ heart }   [DA] 11v29

At the time appointed
he shall return, and come toward the south;
but it shall not be as the former,
or as the latter.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v30

For the ships of Kittim shall come against him;
therefore, he shall be grieved, and return,
and have indignation against the holy covenant;
so shall he do;
he shall even return,
and have intelligence with them
that forsake the holy covenant.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v31

And arms shall stand on his part,
and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength,
and shall take away the daily sacrifice,
and they shall place the abomination
that maketh desolate.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v32

And such as do wickedly against the covenant
shall he corrupt by flatteries;
but the people that do know their GOD
shall be strong, and do exploits.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v33

And they that understand among the people
shall instruct many;
yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame,
by captivity, and by spoil,
many days.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v34

Now when they shall fall,
they shall be helped with a little help;
but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v35

And some of them of understanding shall fall,
to try them, and to purge,
and to make them white,
even to the time of the end,
because it is yet for a time appointed.

¶ Daniel 11 v36-39

{ heart }   [DA] 11v36

And the king shall do according to his will;
and he shall exalt himself,
and magnify himself above every god,
and shall speak marvelous things
against the GOD of gods,
and shall prosper
till the indignation be accomplished;
for that which is determined shall be done.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v37

Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers,
nor the desire of women,
nor regard any god;
for he shall magnify himself above all.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v38

But in his estate
shall he honor the god of forces;
and a god whom his fathers knew not
shall he honor with gold, and silver,
and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v39

Thus shall he do in the most strong holds
with a strange god,
whom he shall acknowledge
and increase with glory;
and he shall cause them to rule over many,
and shall divide the land for gain.

¶ Daniel 11 v40-45

{ heart }   [DA] 11v40

And at the time of the end
shall the king of the south push at him;
and the king of the north shall come against him
like a whirlwind,
with chariots, and with horsemen,
and with many ships;
and he shall enter into the countries,
and shall overflow and pass over.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v41

He shall enter also into the glorious land,
and many countries shall be overthrown,
but these shall escape out of his hand,
even Edom, and Moab,
and the chief of the children of Ammon.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v42

He shall stretch forth his hand
also upon the countries;
and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v43

But he shall have power
over the treasures of gold and of silver,
and over all the precious things of Egypt;
and the Libyans and the Ethiopians
shall be at his steps.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v44

But tidings out of the east and out of the north
shall trouble him;
therefore, he shall go forth with great fury
to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

{ heart }   [DA] 11v45

And he shall plant
the tabernacles of his palace
between the seas
in the glorious holy mountain;
yet he shall come to his end,
and none shall help him.

And at that time shall Michael stand up,
the Great Prince Which standeth
for the children of thy people,
and there shall be a time of trouble,
such as never was since there was a nation
even to that same time;
and at that time thy people shall be delivered,
every one that shall be found
written in the book.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v2

And many of them that sleep
in the dust of the earth
shall awake,
some to everlasting life,
and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

And they that be wise
shall shine as the brightness of the firmament;
and they that turn many to righteousness
as the stars forever and ever.

¶ Daniel 12 v4

{ heart }   [DA] 12v4

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book,
even to the time of the end;
many shall run to and fro,
and knowledge shall be increased.

¶ Daniel 12 v5-13

{ heart }   [DA] 12v5

Then I, Daniel, looked,
and, behold, there stood Other Two,
the One on this side of the bank of the river,
and the Other on that side of the bank of the river.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v6

And One said to the MAN clothed in linen,
WHICH was upon the waters of the river,

How long shall it be
to the end of these wonders?

{ heart }   [DA] 12v7

And I heard the MAN clothed in linen,
WHICH was upon the waters of the river,
when HE held up
HIS right hand and HIS left hand
unto heaven,
and swore by HIM THAT liveth forever,

That It shall be for
a time, times, and an half;
and when HE shall have accomplished
to scatter the power of the holy people,
all these things shall be finished.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v8

And I heard, but I understood not:
then said I,

 ‘O my LORD,
what shall be the end of these things’?

{ heart }   [DA] 12v9

And HE said,

Go thy way, Daniel;
for the words are closed up
and sealed till the time of the end.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v10

Many shall be purified,
and made white and tried,
but the wicked shall do wickedly;
and none of the wicked shall understand,
but the wise shall understand.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v11

And from the time
that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away,
and the abomination that maketh desolate set up,
there shall be
a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v12

Blessed is he that waiteth,
and cometh to the thousand three hundred
and five and thirty days.

{ heart }   [DA] 12v13

But go thou thy way till the end be;
for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot
at the end of the days.
