Daniel 5:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

King Belshazzar was very afraid. His face became white from fear, and his knees were shaking and knocking together. He could not stand up because his legs were too weak. The king called for the men of magic and the Chaldeans to be brought to him. He said to these wise men, “I will give a reward to anyone who can read this writing and explain to me what it means. I will give him purple robes[a] to wear and will put a gold chain around his neck. I will make him the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”

So all the king’s wise men came in, but they could not read the writing or understand what it meant.


  1. Daniel 5:7 purple robes These clothes showed that a person was rich and powerful, like a king. Also in verses 16, 29.
