Breast of Silver


The Breast of silver is the same as the Bear and the Ram.

(Daniel 2:32, 39)

Nevertheless, "another kingdom" inferior to Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom, represented by the breast and arms of silver, would conquer and supplant the golden kingdom.  Darius, by a masterful maneuver of turning aside the waters the Euphrates, led his Medo-Persian forces through the riverbed to take Babylon by complete surprise in 539 B.C.

Daniel 2:32 - This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

Daniel 2:37 - Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 

Daniel 2:38 - And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given unto thine hands, and hath made thee ruler over them all.  Thou art this head of gold.

Daniel - 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Daniel spoke these words to King Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon.  Babylon fell in 539 B.C when the Medes and the Persians conquered the kingdom.  The Medo-Persian Empire lasted until Alexander the Great defeated them in battle in 331 B.C.
