What immediately followed this complete apostasy?


"In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom,
being about threescore and two years old." Verses 30, 31.
NOTE-The gospel of the kingdom was preached in Babylon by Daniel and by other faithful and
God-fearing Jews, and Nebuchadnezzar was brought to acknowledge and to worship the true God. But
after the death of Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon relapsed into idolatry again, and this apostasy was rendered
hopeless when Belshazzar used the sacred vessels from the house of God, dedicated to the worship of
,God, in which to drink the wine of Babylon while worship was offered to the false gods. Then came the
handwriting on the wall, and the fall of ancient Babylon.
