Then the magicians,[b] the conjurers,[c] the astrologers[d] and the diviners came in and I told them the dream, but they could not make known to me its explanation.[e] Then at last[f] Daniel came before me whose name was[g] Belteshazzar, according to[h] the name of my god, and in whom was the spirit of the holy gods,[i] and I related the dream to him.[j]
