Head Of Gold

Daniel explicitly told Nebuchadnezzar that he was the "head of Gold" in the dream.  Since Daniel identified the other parts of the image as representing kingdoms, it is evident that the head of gold symbolized Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom, Babylon.  In this and later chapters the terms "king" and "kingdom" are used interchangeably.  The head of gold fitly represented Babylon, "the golden city" (Isaiah 14:4).  Jeremiah called the city "a golden cup," abundant in treasures" (Jeremiah 51:7,13).  Surrounded by massive fortified walls, the city lay on both sides of the Euphrates river, which watered its gardens and supported its commerce.

Daniel 2:36 - This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

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

Verse 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.
