"...Nebuchadnezzar thy father..."

  • Before Daniel read and interpreted the writing he reminded the king of what Nebuchadnezzar had experienced as a result of his refusal to fulfill the divine destiny with regard to himself and his nation. Besides, Nebuchadnezzar had been mightier and more prudent than the wretched Belshazzar. The prophet showed Belshazzar how he, the (grand) son, had acted wickedly toward God, the Lord of his life, and had learned nothing from the experience of Nebuchadnezzar. (4BC 804)
