Contemporary English Version
19 For a while, Daniel[a] was terribly confused and worried by what he was thinking. But I said, “Don’t be bothered either by the dream or by what it means.”
Your Majesty, I wish the dream had been against your enemies. 20 You saw a tree that grew so big and strong that it reached up to heaven and could be seen from anywhere on earth. 21 Its leaves were beautiful, and it produced enough fruit for all living creatures; animals lived in its shade, and birds nested in its branches.
- 4.18,19 Daniel: See the note at 2.26.
