King Belshazzar sets a feast for 1000 of his nobles that have fled into Babylon ahead of the encroached Medo-Persian Armies. The King orders the gold and silver goblets taken from Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem to be used in the orgy. Suddenly, a hand appears and writes 4 words on the wall. The King is terrified, his magicians fail to read or interpret the words. Daniel is summoned to the room to read and interpret the handwriting on the wall. Bottom line, Belshazzar has been weighed int he balances and found wanting. He will die at the hand of Medo-Persian warriors that very night for defying Yahweh, and living a profligate life.
