King Nebuchadnezzar questions Daniel (Dan 2:26-2:26)

“The king said to Daniel,

Whose name was Belteshazzar.

‘Are you able

To tell me

The dream

That I have seen

With its interpretation?’”

The king then turned to Daniel, whose Babylonian name was Belteshazzar. He wanted to know if Daniel was able to tell him his dream and its interpretation. The palace master had given Daniel this new Babylonian name of Belteshazzar in the preceding chapter, when he began his Babylonian court studies.
