The name of Babylon stands for the oldest of earthly cities and the first and most illustrious of earthly empires. It filled a large place in the early history of our present world, and possibly may figure again in its final years. According to its native etymology ("Bab-El"), it means "The Gate of God." Gates, in Oriental times, were the places of judgment. It was in the gates that authority spoke, whence the laws and ordinances were given out, and where causes were heard and decided. As the places of public concourse, they were also used by prophets and sages for the delivery of their messages to the people. And it is a singular fact that the great prophetic judgment upon the succession, career and final termination of worldly sovereignty was given out from the original head of world-empires, and from a primal capital whose very name denotes "The Gate of God." Equally striking is the further fact that the holy prophet through whom these divine decisions and fore-announcements were made was not only an illustrious sage and courtier in this Gate of God, but that his name ("Dan-i-El") means "God’s Judge." Thus, by a group of coincidences which could hardly have been accidental, we have God’s judge in the Gate of God giving forth the pre-determinations and decrees of God with regard to the whole course of earthly political power. These Voices of God from the Gate of God, through the judge of God, it is the object of this book to describe. [From the Preface] Content presented in the form of fourteen Lectures, followed by "A Critically-Revised Translation" of the Book of Daniel by the author’s "friend and co-laborer," Rev. R. F. Weidner.
