Daniel and the Writing on the Wall

Get the Full Version

Sunday School Lady explains the origins of the saying “the writing’s on the wall” – it comes from the book of Daniel! From Buck Denver Asks What’s in the Bible? Volume 9: God Speaks! [Isaiah, Jeremiah & The Prophets].

Later on when King Belshazzar, the very last king of Babylon was having a huge feast in his palace, a hand appeared in mid-air and wrote a message on the wall! They were terrified and they couldn’t figure out what it said! Finally they called in Daniel – who explained that the message said Belshazzar’s rein as king was ending. And that very night Belshazzar was killed and the Persians and Medes took over Babylon!

Is that where the saying “I’ve seen the writin’ on the wall” comes from?
