Then Daniel praised the God of heaven, 20 saying,
"Blessed be the Name of God forever and ever,
for He alone has all wisdom and all power.
21 World events are under His control.
He removes kings and sets others on their thrones.
He gives wise men their wisdom and scholars their intelligence.
22 He reveals profound mysteries beyond man's understanding.
He knows all hidden things, for He is light, and darkness is no obstacle to Him.
23 I thank and praise You, O God of my fathers,
for You have given me wisdom and glowing health,
and now even this vision of the king's dream and the understanding of what it means."
