Mene

Additional Links

Mene (me'ne), Tekel, Upharsin. This sentence, which appeared on the wall of Belshazzar's banqueting-hall to warn him of the impending destruction of Babylon, is in the Chaldee language. Translated literally, Mene, "he is numbered;" Mene, "he is numbered;" Tekel, "he is weighed;" Upharsin, "they are divided." "Peres," in the original language, is the same word with "Upharsin," but in a different case or number. It means "he was divided." Daniel 5:25.
