17 Then Daniel went to his house and made the matter known to eHananiah, eMishael, and eAzariah, his companions, 18 fand told them to seek mercy from the gGod of heaven concerning this mystery, so that Daniel and his companions might not hbe destroyed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in ia vision of the night. Then Daniel jblessed the gGod of heaven. 20 Daniel answered and said:
k“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
lto whom belong wisdom and might.
21 mHe changes times and seasons;
nhe removes kings and sets up kings;
ohe gives wisdom to the wise
oand knowledge to those who have understanding;
22 phe reveals deep and hidden things;
phe knows what is in the darkness,
qand the light dwells with him.
23 To you, O rGod of my fathers,
sI give thanks and praise,
for tyou have given me wisdom and might,
and have now made known to me what uwe asked of you,
for you have made known to us the king’s matter.”
