Daniel 5:24-29New King James Version (NKJV)

24 Then the fingers[a] of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written.

25 “And this is the inscription that was written:

MENE,[b] MENE, TEKEL,[c] UPHARSIN.[d]

26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”[e] 29 Then Belshazzar gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
