You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.
This was the substance of the dream of the king. Some of the major points of what the king saw are:
- A large statue. Enormous, Dazzling, Awesome
- Head of pure gold
- Chest and arms of silver
- Belly and thighs of bronze
- Legs of iron, feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay
The entire statue exists at the time of Nebuchadnezzar seeing it. It has four parts, and they all comprise the same statue.
