With what words did Daniel begin the interpretation of the dream?
"Thou, 0 king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength,
and glory. And where so ever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven
hath He given into your hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold." Verses
NOTE - The character of the Babylonian Empire is fittingly indicated by the nature of the material
composing that portion of the image by which it was symbolized-the head of gold. It was "the golden
kingdom of a golden age." The city of Babylon, its metropolis, according to history, towered to a height
never equaled by any of its later rivals. "Situated in the garden of the East; laid out in a perfect square sixty
miles in circumference, fifteen miles on each side, surrounded by a wall three hundred and fifty feet high
and eighty-seven feet thick, with a moat, or ditch, around this, of equal cubic capacity with the wall itself;
divided into six hundred and seventy-six squares, laid out in luxuriant pleasure-grounds and gardens,
interspersed with magnificent dwellings-this city, containing in itself many things which were themselves
wonders of the world, was itself another and still mightier wonder. . . . Such was Babylon, with
Nebuchadnezzar, youthfu1, bold, vigorous, and accomplished, seated upon its throne."
