Daniel 5:13-16

Belshazzar asks Daniel to explain the message

13 So they brought Daniel to stand in front of the king. The king said to him, ‘Are you one of the men that my father, the king, brought here from Judah? Is your name Daniel? 14 I have heard that the spirit of the gods is in you. You are very wise and clever. I have heard that you understand many things. 15 I told my wise men and enchanters to read these words. I asked them to tell me what the words mean. But they could not explain the message to me. 16 I have heard that you can tell people what their dreams mean. And I have heard that you can find the answer to difficult problems. So, can you read these words? And can you tell me what they mean? If you can do that, then I will put valuable purple clothes on you. You will have a gold chain round your neck. You will become the third ruler in the kingdom.’
