OUR FATHER WHO KNOWS THE HIDDEN THINGS
Daniel chapter 2 verse 4 says this;
Then the astrologers answered the king,“May the king live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will interpret it.”
This verse captures the response that the astrologers in King Nebuchadnezzar's court gave when he asked them to interprete a dream that had troubled him.
Nebuchadnezzar told the astrologers to interprete his dream and they naturally asked him to first tell them the dream and then they would give him its interpretation..
But the king was not satisfied with their request because he had correctly surmised that if someone claimed to have access to the meaning of dreams, they should also have access to the dreams themselves.
If someone presented an answer sheet to an upcoming test, it would be reasonable to presume that the person claiming to have the answer sheet would also have access to the test itself.
The astrologers could not meet the king's demands and he was so angry that he pronounced a death sentence over them.
The prophet Daniel, upon learning what the king was asking, undertook to save the lives of the astrologers as well as his own. He and three companions prayed to the Lord in the night and the king's dream and its meaning was given to Daniel in a vision.
Daniel praised the Lord with these words.
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.
