There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods in him. In the days of your predecessor he was found to have insight, intelligence, and wisdom like the wisdom of the gods. Your predecessor, King Nebuchadnezzar, appointed him chief of the diviners, mediums, Chaldeans, and astrologers. Your own predecessor, the king,
the spirit

Finally Daniel, named Belteshazzar after the name of my god-- and the spirit of the holy gods is in him-- came before me. I told him the dream:
Genesis 41:38
Then Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find anyone like this, a man who has the spirit of God in him?"

I had a dream, and it frightened me; while in my bed, the images and visions in my mind alarmed me.

he said to them, "I have had a dream and am anxious to understand it."
Genesis 11:6-8
6
The LORD said, "If, as one people all having the same language, they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.
7
Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another's speech."
8
So the LORD scattered them from there over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city.

Yes, you are wiser than Daniel; no secret is hidden from you!
tell
Daniel 4:18
This is the dream that I, King Nebuchadnezzar, had. Now, Belteshazzar, tell me the interpretation, because none of the wise men of my kingdom can make the interpretation known to me. But you can, because you have the spirit of the holy gods.
Daniel 2:4
The Chaldeans spoke to the king (Aramaic begins here): "May the king live forever. Tell your servants the dream, and we will give the interpretation."
Daniel 2:5
The king replied to the Chaldeans, "My word is final: If you don't tell me the dream and its interpretation, you will be torn limb from limb, and your houses will be made a garbage dump.
Genesis 40:9-19
9
So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph: "In my dream there was a vine in front of me.
10
On the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded, its blossoms came out and its clusters ripened into grapes.
11
Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes, squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand."
12
"This is its interpretation," Joseph said to him. "The three branches are three days.
13
In just three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your position. You will put Pharaoh's cup in his hand the way you used to when you were his cupbearer.
14
But when all goes well for you, remember that I was with you. Please show kindness to me by mentioning me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this prison.
15
For I was kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should put me in the dungeon."
16
When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was positive, he said to Joseph, "I also had a dream. Three baskets of white bread were on my head.
17
In the top basket were all sorts of baked goods for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head."
18
"This is its interpretation," Joseph replied. "The three baskets are three days.
19
In just three days Pharaoh will lift up your head-- from off you-- and hang you on a tree. Then the birds will eat the flesh from your body."
Genesis 41:15-36
15
Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said about you that you can hear a dream and interpret it."
16
"I am not able to," Joseph answered Pharaoh. "It is God who will give Pharaoh a favorable answer."
17
So Pharaoh said to Joseph: "In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile,
18
when seven well-fed, healthy-looking cows came up from the Nile and began to graze among the reeds.
19
After them, seven other cows-- ugly, very sickly, and thin-- came up. I've never seen such ugly ones as these in all the land of Egypt.
20
Then the thin, ugly cows ate the first seven well-fed cows.
21
When they had devoured them, you could not tell that they had devoured them; their appearance was as bad as it had been before. Then I woke up.
22
In my dream I had also seen seven heads of grain, full and good, coming up on one stalk.
23
After them, seven heads of grain-- withered, thin, and scorched by the east wind-- sprouted up.
24
The thin heads of grain swallowed the seven full ones. I told this to the magicians, but no one can tell me what it means."
25
Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's dreams mean the same thing. God has revealed to Pharaoh what He is about to do.
26
The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven years. The dreams mean the same thing.
27
The seven thin, ugly cows that came up after them are seven years, and the seven worthless, scorched heads of grain are seven years of famine.
28
"It is just as I told Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do.
29
Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt.
30
After them, seven years of famine will take place, and all the abundance in the land of Egypt will be forgotten. The famine will devastate the land.
31
The abundance in the land will not be remembered because of the famine that follows it, for the famine will be very severe.
32
Because the dream was given twice to Pharaoh, it means that the matter has been determined by God, and He will soon carry it out.
33
"So now, let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and set him over the land of Egypt.
34
Let Pharaoh do this: Let him appoint overseers over the land and take one-fifth [of the harvest] of the land of Egypt during the seven years of abundance.
35
Let them gather all the [excess] food during these good years that are coming, store the grain under Pharaoh's authority as food in the cities, and preserve [it].
36
The food will be a reserve for the land during the seven years of famine that will take place in the land of Egypt. Then the country will not be wiped out by the famine."
Judges 7:13-15
13
When Gideon arrived, there was a man telling his friend [about] a dream. He said, "Listen, I had a dream: a loaf of barley bread came tumbling into the Midianite camp, struck a tent, and it fell. The loaf turned the tent upside down so that it collapsed."
14
His friend answered: "This is nothing less than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has handed the entire Midianite camp over to him."
15
When Gideon heard the account of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship. He returned to Israel's camp and said, "Get up, for the LORD has handed the Midianite camp over to you."
