4:6 So I issued an order 1 for all the wise men of Babylon to be brought 2 before me so that they could make known to me the interpretation of the dream.
4:8 Later Daniel entered (whose name is Belteshazzar after the name of my god, 3 and in whom there is a spirit of the holy gods). I recounted the dream for him as well,
4:18 “This is the dream that I, King Nebuchadnezzar, saw. Now you, Belteshazzar, declare its 4 interpretation, for none of the wise men in 5 my kingdom are able to make known to me the interpretation. But you can do so, for a spirit of the holy gods is in you.”
