& Daniel said, "Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him.
& "It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding.
& "It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.
& "To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us the king's matter."
