Daniel 5:6-8 Living Bible (TLB)

His face blanched with fear, and such terror gripped him that his knees knocked together and his legs gave way beneath him.

“Bring the magicians and astrologers!” he screamed. “Bring the Chaldeans! Whoever reads that writing on the wall and tells me what it means will be dressed in purple robes of royal honor, with a gold chain around his neck, and he will become the third ruler in the kingdom!”[a]

But when they came, none of them could understand the writing or tell him what it meant.

Footnotes:

  1. Daniel 5:7 become the third ruler in the kingdom. Belshazzar was the second under Nabonidus, his father, who was out of town at the time.
