No. Belshazzar, his son, became king when God wrote the message on the wall. The message said: MENE (mai-nai), MENE, TEKEL (tai-kel), UPHARSIN (ue-fair-sin). MENE means 'numbered', TEKEL means 'weighed', UPHARSIN means 'divided'. So MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN means 'numbered, numbered, weighed, divided.'

What does 'The handwriting is on the wall' mean?

It means that it seems (somewhat) obvious that something (usually something bad) is about to happen.This is from the book of Daniel in the Bible when a hand appeared and wrote on the wall of king Belshazzar as he in a drunken party praised the gods of gold, silver, brass and wood.Daniel was brought and translated the writing of as "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN."This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.So it means basically, "Judgment is at near."

What were the words written on the walls in the bible?

If you are referring to the account of Daniel in the Jewish Talmud and Old Testament of the standard version of the Christian Bible, the words were: "mene, mene, tekel, parsin".They mean, loosely: "Your reign is coming to an end because you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Your kingdom will fall and be given to the Medes and Persians." Dan. 5:25-26.

Where did graffiti originate?

In the book of Daniel there is a story about some magical writing on the wall of the royal palace of King Belshazzar. When translated the term "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin" is taken to mean "Beware, your kingdom is falling towars the Persians". The same night King Belshazzar was killed and Darius the Mede became King. Apart from the magic, this is recognised as the first instance of written graffiti.

What language is Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin?

mene mene tekel upharsin comes from the story of the fall of Babylon to the Persian empire in 539 BCE as related in chapter 5 of the book of Daniel in the Old Testament of the Bible. It is a version of the legendary "(hand)writing on the wall." There is no universal agreement among scholars as to what language the inscription would actually have been written in, but this version is presumably Aramaic, transliterated into the English version of the Latin alphabet.There has long been considerable debate about exactly how the inscription might have been written and how it should be interpreted, since Daniel says the Babylonian scholars couldn't interpret it (which is why the Babylonian king Belshazzar summoned Daniel to interpret it), and since, superficially, the meanings of proposed versions of the inscription, including this one, are anything but obvious. Word for word, mene mene tekel u pharsin is mina mina shekel andhalf-mina, where mina and shekel are names of units of weight, like US pound or ounce, or of currency, like US dollar or cent. Substituting these US units gives: "pound pound ounce and half pound" or "dollar dollar cent and half dollar", hardly any clearer than the original. But mene is derived from a word meaning count, tekel from one meaning weigh, and pharsin from one meaning divide. A standard interpretation of the inscription, based on these etymological relationships, goes something like: "the days of Belshazzar's reign are numbered [count count] - he has been weighed and found wanting [weigh (note that a shekel was only a fiftieth or sixtieth of a mina)] - his kingdom will be divided (between the Median kingdom and the Persian empire, two rivals of Babylon) [divide (note that a pharsin was half a mina and that the word pharsin resembles the word for Persia)]." In any case, Daniel says that Daniel interpreted the inscription as a prediction of the imminent end of Belshazzar's reign.
