INTRODUCTION. After Daniel had been in Babylonian captivity for nearly seventy years, Belshazzar, the last king of Babylon, hosted a drunken feast for a thousand lords. The king and his guests drank from the gold and silver vessels brought to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar from the temple in Jerusalem. Suddenly, a hand wrote the words

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

on the wall of the palace. When no one could understand the message, the queen (queen mother) remembered Daniel, and he was brought to Belshazzar to interpret.
