Daniel Deciphers And Interprets The Writing

17 Daniel answered, and said before the king, "As for thy rewards, keep them to thyself, or give thy rich gifts to another: yet not the less, I will read the writing unto the king, and show him the interpretation thereof. 18 O king, God the highest gave unto Nebuchadnezzar, thy father, the dignity of a king, with worship and honor: 19 So that all people, kindreds and tongues stood in awe and fear of him, by reason of the high estate that he had sent him. For why? He slew whom he would; he smote, whom it pleased him. Again: whom he would, he set up; and whom he list, he put down.
