King James Bible
1In the second year of the reign of Artexerxes the great, in the first day of the month Nisan, Mardocheus the son of Jairus, the son of Semei, the son of Cisai, of the tribe of Benjamin, had a dream; 2Who was a Jew, and dwelt in the city of Susa, a great man, being a servitor in the king's court. 3He was also one of the captives, which Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon carried from Jerusalem with Jechonias king of Judea; and this was his dream: 4Behold a noise of a tumult, with thunder, and earthquakes, and uproar in the land: 5And, behold, two great dragons came forth ready to fight, and their cry was great. 6And at their cry all nations were prepared to battle, that they might fight against the righteous people. 7And lo a day of darkness and obscurity, tribulation and anguish, affliction and great uproar, upon earth. 8And the whole righteous nation was troubled, fearing their own evils, and were ready to perish. 9Then they cried unto God, and upon their cry, as it were from a little fountain, was made a great flood, even much water. 10The light and the sun rose up, and the lowly were exalted, and devoured the glorious. 11Now when Mardocheus, who had seen this dream, and what God had determined to do, was awake, he bare this dream in mind, and until night by all means was desirous to know it.
