Daniel 2: 16-23
And Daniel went in and desired of the king that he would set a date and give him time, and he would show the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, So that they would desire and request mercy of the God of heaven concerning this secret, that Daniel and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever ! For wisdom and might are His !
He changes the times and the seasons ; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding ! He reveals the deep and secret things ; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him ! I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers, Who has given me wisdom and might and has made known to me now what we desired of You, for You have made known to us the solution to the king’s problem.
