his spirit:
"And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they [were] sad." {Gen 40:6} + "And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. ... And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream." {Dan 2:1-3} + "I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of my head troubled me." {Dan 4:5} + "Then Daniel, whose name [was] Belteshazzar, was astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream [be] to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies." {Dan 4:19} + "Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another." {Dan 5:6} + "Hitherto [is] the end of the matter.

the magicians of Egypt:
The word here used (chartummim) may mean no more than interpreters of abstruse or difficult subjects; especially of dreams and visions, which formed a considerable part of the ancient pagan religion; and the Egyptian priests were the first who professed this art. The word may be of affinity with, or derived from, the Persian chiradmand, wise, learned, judicious, intelligent, from chirad, understanding, judgment, and mand, endowed with. They seem to have been such persons as Josephus calls sacred scribes; or professors of sacred learning. "Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments." {Exd 7:11} + "And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said." {Exd 7:22} + "And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt." {Exd 8:7} + "And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast. ... Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This [is] the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said." {Exd 8:18-19} + "And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians." {Exd 9:11} + "Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I [am] the LORD your God." {Lev 19:31} + "And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people." {Lev 20:6} + "When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. ... For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so [to do]." {Deu 18:9-14} + "And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?" {Isa 8:19} + "And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards." {Isa 19:3} + "Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid." {Isa 29:14} + "Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. ... Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come upon thee." {Isa 47:12-13} + "And in all matters of wisdom [and] understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians [and] astrologers that [were] in all his realm." {Dan 1:20} + "Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king." {Dan 2:2} + "Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof." {Dan 4:7} + "The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. [And] the king spake, and said to the wise [men] of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and [have] a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom." {Dan 5:7} + "There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom [is] the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, [I say], thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, [and] soothsayers;" {Dan 5:11} + "Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him.

the wise men:
"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem," {Mtt 2:1} + "And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds." {Act 7:22}
but there:
"And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and [there is] no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, [Do] not interpretations [belong] to God? tell me [them], I pray you." {Gen 40:8} + "He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform [their] enterprise. ... He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong." {Job 5:12-13} + "The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant." {Psa 25:14} + "Surely the princes of Zoan [are] fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I [am] the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? ... The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, [even they that are] the stay of the tribes thereof." {Isa 19:11-13} + "Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid." {Isa 29:14} + "Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation. ... And [it is] a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh." {Dan 2:4-11} + "Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise [men], the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; ...

Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;" {Dan 2:27-28} + "Then came in all the king's wise [men]: but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof." {Dan 5:8} + "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent." {1Co 1:19} + "Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. ... And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain." {1Co 3:18-20}
