The king asks Daniel to interpret this dream (Dan 4:18-4:18)

“‘This is the dream

That I,

King Nebuchadnezzar,

Saw.

Now you!

O Belteshazzar!

Declare the interpretation!

All the wise men

Of my kingdom

Are unable

To tell me

The interpretation.

However,

You are able!

You are endowed

With a spirit

Of the holy gods!’”

King Nebuchadnezzar had described his dream to Daniel. Now, he wanted Belteshazzar, Daniel, to given him an interpretation. All the wise men of his kingdom of Babylon were not able to give him an interpretation. However, Daniel, or Belteshazzar, was an able man endowed with the spirit of the holy gods. Daniel had some sort of divine power to interpret dreams, as was seen earlier in this work.
