Daniel Daily Reading

Daily Reading: Daniel 5:13-31
No one has been able to interpret the writing on the wall so Daniel is brought before the king to bring the interpretation. In contrast to Daniel’s earlier responses to Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel pronounces judgement rather than an exhortation to change. Although Belshazzar didn’t receive the dreams his father Nebuchadnezzar had, he knew what had happened to his father. Belshazzar knew that God was King and that he should live humbly before Him. At the end of chapter 5 we see the judgement come to be as the Babylonian Empire falls to the Persian Empire (539BC)
