Daniel explains to the king his dream (Dan 2:29-2:30)

“‘To you!

O king!

As you lay in bed,

Thoughts came

Of what would be

Hereafter.

The revealer

Of the mysteries

Disclosed to you

What is to be.

But as for me,

This mystery

Has not been revealed

To me,

Because of any wisdom

That I have

More than any other living being.

But rather

That the interpretation

May be made known

To the king.

Thus,

You may understand

The thoughts

Of your mind.’”

Daniel addressed the king directly. As the king was laying in his bed, these thoughts from the revealer of all mysteries were disclosed to him. Now Daniel was not any wiser than anyone else, but God had revealed to him this mystery. Thus, the interpretation of the king’s dreams might be made known to him. The king then could understand his own thoughts.
