2:21 He changes times and seasons,
deposing some kings
and establishing others. 1
He gives wisdom to the wise;
he imparts knowledge to those with understanding; 2
2:23 O God of my fathers, I acknowledge and glorify you,
for you have bestowed wisdom and power on me.
Now you have enabled me to understand what I 3 requested from you.
For you have enabled me to understand the king’s dilemma.” 4
