Daniel 2:8-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)

The king replied, “I know for sure that you are attempting to gain time, because you see that my decision is firm. If you don’t inform me of the dream, there is only one thing that is going to happen to you.[a] For you have agreed among yourselves to report to me something false and deceitful[b] until such time as things might change. So tell me the dream, and I will have confidence[c] that you can disclose its interpretation.”

10 The wise men replied to the king, “There is no man on earth who is able to disclose the king’s secret,[d] for no king, regardless of his position and power, has ever requested such a thing from any magician, astrologer, or wise man.
