Daniel Relates The dream
"Dear King you behold a great image. Whose brightness was excellent, It stood before you. The form was terrible.
The head was gold, his breast and his arms silver, his belly and his thighs of brass his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. You saw a large stone smite the image on the feet, that were of iron and clay the brass the silver and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors. The wind carried them away, that no place was found for them. this was your dream! O King!
