Blessed is your name, O God, forever and ever. To you belong all wisdom and might. You change times and seasons; you set up kings and depose them; you give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; you reveal deep and hidden things; you know what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with you. To you, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and might (Daniel 2:20-23).
