The king replied to Daniel, “Certainly your God is a God of gods and Lord of kings and revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery!”
He asked them to pray for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery so that he 1 and his friends would not be destroyed along with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
Daniel replied to the king, “The mystery that the king is asking about is such that no wise men, astrologers, magicians, or diviners can possibly disclose it to the king.
