17Then Daniel went to his house and made the matter known to aHananiah bMishael, and cAzariah, his companions, 18 dand told them to seek mercy from the eGod of heaven concerning this mystery, so that Daniel and his companions might not fbe destroyed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in ga vision of the night. Then Daniel hblessed the iGod of heaven. 20Daniel answered and said:

jBlessed be the name of God forever and ever,
kto whom belong wisdom and might.
21 lHe changes times and seasons;
mhe removes kings and sets up kings;
nhe gives wisdom to the wise
oand knowledge to those who have understanding;
22 phe reveals deep and hidden things;
qhe knows what is in the darkness,
rand the light dwells with him.
23To you, O sGod of my fathers,
tI give thanks and praise,
for uyou have given me wisdom and might,
and have now made known to me what vwe asked of you,
for you have made known to us the king’s matter.”
