Daniel 2:20-23

2:20 saying, 1 

“Let the name of God 2  be praised 3  forever and ever,

for wisdom and power belong to him.

2:21 He changes times and seasons,

deposing some kings

and establishing others. 4 

He gives wisdom to the wise;

he imparts knowledge to those with understanding; 5 

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 6  requested from you.

For you have enabled me to understand the king’s dilemma.” 7 

1 tn Aram “Daniel answered and said.”

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

3 tn Or “blessed.”

4 tn Aram “kings.”

5 tn Aram “the knowers of understanding.”

6 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.

7 tn Aram “the word of the king.”
