Daniel 2:19-23

2:19 Then in a night vision the mystery was revealed to Daniel. So Daniel praised 1  the God of heaven, 2:20 saying, 2 

“Let the name of God 3  be praised 4  forever and ever,

for wisdom and power belong to him.

2:21 He changes times and seasons,

deposing some kings

and establishing others. 5 

He gives wisdom to the wise;

he imparts knowledge to those with understanding; 6 

2:22 he reveals deep and hidden things.

He knows what is in the darkness,

and light resides with him.

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 7  requested from you.

For you have enabled me to understand the king’s dilemma.” 8 

1 tn Or “blessed.”

2 tn Aram “Daniel answered and said.”

3 sn As is often the case in the Bible, here the name represents the person.

4 tn Or “blessed.”

5 tn Aram “kings.”

6 tn Aram “the knowers of understanding.”

7 tn Aram “we.” Various explanations have been offered for the plural, but it is probably best understood as the editorial plural; so also with “me” later in this verse.

8 tn Aram “the word of the king.”
