Daniel 5-8

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

5:2-4 - "Under the influence of the wine, Belshazzar commanded that they bring in the vessels of gold and silver that his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them. So they brought in the vessels of gold and silver that had been taken out of the temple, the house of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines drank from them. They drank the wine and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone."
5:10-12 - "The queen, when she heard the discussion [about the writing on the wall] of the king and his lords, came into the banqueting hall. The queen said, 'O king, live forever! Do not let your thoughts terrify you or your face grow pale. There is a man in your kingdom who is endowed with a spirit of the holy gods. In the days of your father he was found to have enlightenment, understanding, and wisdom like the wisdom of the gods. Your father, King Nebuchadnezzar, made him chief of the magicians, enchanters, Chaldeans, and diviners, because an excellent spirit, knowledge, and understanding to interpret dreams, explain riddles, and solve problems were found in Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar. Now let Daniel be called, and he will give the interpretation.'"
5:23 - "You have exalted yourself against the Lord of heaven! The vessels of his temple have been brought in before you, and you and your lords, your wives, and your concubines have been drinking wine from them."

6:24 - "The king gave a command, and those who had accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the den of lions - they, their children, and their wives. Before they reached the bottom of the den the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces."

Daniel 7 - No mention of any women.

Daniel 8 - No mention of any women.

My Comments

More women being punished for something their husbands did. Yay. X<

Sorry, my analysis isn't gonna go much further than that. There isn't really a whole lot here and I've had a wicked headache for the better part of the day. Word to the wise: wigs are just not good to wear during the summer with highs in the triple digits. Think I'm gonna stick with head wraps and bandannas until it cools off...

Friday: More Daniel
