    In this passage from the book of Daniel, the king is speaking to the Chaldeans and demanding that they interpret his dream.

      Valley

    • C.

    Explanation
    The passage from Daniel 2:35 describes a vision in which a stone strikes an image made of different materials (iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold) and breaks them into pieces. The broken pieces are then carried away by the wind. However, the stone that struck the image becomes a great mountain and fills the whole earth. This suggests that the correct answer is "mountain" because it is the only option that aligns with the description given in the passage.

    42 And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as ____.  Dan. 2:42-43, ESV

    • A.

      Law does not mix with grace

    • B.

      Condemnation does not mix with forgiveness

    • C.

      Iron does not mix with clay

    Correct Answer
    C. Iron does not mix with clay
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "iron does not mix with clay." This is because the passage from Daniel 2:42-43 describes a vision where the toes of a statue were made of a mixture of iron and clay. The interpretation of the vision is that this represents a kingdom that will be partly strong (iron) and partly brittle (clay). The analogy is then made that just as iron does not mix with clay, the different elements within the kingdom will not hold together. Therefore, the correct answer reflects the analogy presented in the passage.
