Daniel 2:8-10 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

The king answered and said, “Certainly[a] I know that you are trying to gain time[b] because[c] you have seen that this matter is firmly decreed by me,[d] for if you do not make the dream known to me, your verdict is fixed,[e] and you have conspired to say a lying and deceitful word to me until the circumstances[f] will change. Therefore, tell me the dream, and I will know that you can tell me its explanation.” 10 The astrologers[g] answered the king and said, “There is not a man on earth that is able to reveal the word of the king; in fact,[h] no great and powerful king has ever asked a thing like this of any magician[i] or conjurer[j] or astrologer.[k]
