Dan. 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar,
 Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith
[a.] his spirit was troubled, and
[b.] his sleep brake from him.
 Daniel went in, and
[a.] desired of the king that he would give him time, and
[11.] that he would show the king the interpretation.
 Daniel went to his house, and
[a.] made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
2:18 [11.] That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven
[aa.] concerning this secret;
[12.] that Daniel and his fellows should not perish
[aa.] with the rest of the wise [men] of Babylon.
2:19 Then was [after prayer]
 the secret revealed unto Daniel
[a.] in a night vision.
 Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
2:20 Daniel answered and said,
 Blessed be the name of God
[a.] for ever and ever: for
 wisdom [is His] and
 might are [is] his:
 he changeth the times and
 [he changeth]the seasons [c/p. Dan. 7:25]:
 he removeth kings, and
 [he] setteth up kings:
 he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and
 [he giveth] knowledge to them that know understanding:
2:22  He revealeth the deep [things] and
 [he revealeth the] secret things:
 he knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and
 the light dwelleth with him.
 thank thee, and
 praise thee, O thou God of my fathers,
[a.] who hast given me wisdom and might, and
[b.] hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee [answered prayer]:
[11.] for thou hast [now] made known unto us the king's matter.
2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel,
 whose name [was] Belteshazzar,
[a.] Art thou able to make known unto me
[11.] the dream which I have seen, and
[12.] the interpretation thereof?
2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said,
 The secret which the king hath demanded
[a.] cannot [these cannot reveal the secret]
[11.] the wise [men],
[12.] the astrologers,
[13.] the magicians,
[14.] the soothsayers,
show unto the king;
 there is a God in heaven
[a.] that revealeth secrets, and
[b.] [that] maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar
[1.] what shall be in the latter days (vs. Dan. 10:14).
[a.] dream, and the
[b.] visions of thy head
[11.] upon thy bed,
are these [God will speak to a king about his kingdom] ;
