As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver,
its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay.
You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.
Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors.

You, O king, are king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, the strength, and the glory.
Wherever the children of men dwell, he has given the animals of the field and the birds of the sky into your hand, and has made you rule over them all. You are the head of gold.
