Daniel 2:31-45 (SLV) - "You, O king, saw in your dream a great image....This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms were of silver, his belly and his thighs were of brass, his legs were made of iron, and his feet were composed of part iron and part clay. You saw it standing until a stone was cut out without hands, struck the image upon his feet that were made of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together....and the stone that struck the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."
DANIEL'S INTERPRETATION OF THE DREAM
"This is your dream....You are the head of gold. And after you, there shall arise another kingdom of silver which will be inferior to yours; it will be followed by a third kingdom of brass which shall rule over all the earth. And then there shall be a fourth kingdom, which shall be as strong as iron: forasmuch as iron is able to break into pieces and subdue all things: and it shall break them all into pieces. And you saw the feet and toes of the image, consisting part of potters' clay, and part of iron; the kingdom shall be divided, but it shall have the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were also part iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke into pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to you what shall later come to pass: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation is sure."
