Daniel 2:40-41

Context
2:40 Then there will be a fourth kingdom, one strong like iron. Just like iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything, and as iron breaks in pieces 1  all of these metals, 2  so it will break in pieces and crush the others. 3  2:41 In that you were seeing feet and toes 4  partly of wet clay 5  and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom. Some of the strength of iron will be in it, for you saw iron mixed with wet clay. 6 

1 tc Theodotion and the Vulgate lack the phrase “and as iron breaks in pieces.”

2 tn The Aramaic text does not have this word, but it has been added in the translation for clarity.

3 tn The words “the others” are supplied from the context.

4 tc The LXX lacks “and toes.”

5 tn Aram “potter’s clay.”

6 tn Aram “clay of clay” (also in v. 43).
