Daniel 5

The phrase “handwriting on the wall” comes from this eerie story of a disembodied hand writing four words on the wall of King Belshazzar’s palace, spelling out his fate.  The reason for God’s judgment on him was that he had taken the sacred vessels captured by his father from the Temple in Jerusalem and used them for profane purposes.
