Daniel 5:4-5

Context
5:4 As they drank wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone.

5:5 At that very moment the fingers of a human hand appeared 1  and wrote on the plaster of the royal palace wall, opposite the lampstand. 2  The king was watching the back 3  of the hand that was writing.

1 tn Aram “came forth.”

2 sn The mention of the lampstand in this context is of interest because it suggests that the writing was in clear view.

3 tn While Aramaic פַּס (pas) can mean the palm of the hand, here it seems to be the back of the hand that is intended.
