#3: Feet of Clay
A king dreamed, a prophet interpreted, a phrase was born.
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylonia, dreamed of a huge statue with a head of gold, silver torso, bronze belly ... and feet of iron and clay.
The prophet Daniel deciphered the king's vision, observing that the feet of clay signified weakness. (Daniel 2:42)
Daniel's revelation gave feet of clay its current sense: a character flaw not readily apparent.
For example, as one blogger pointed out, "Like the rest of us, Tiger Woods has feet of clay."
