Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:1 - [fn]Nebuchadnezzar the king to all the peoples, nations, and men of every [fn]language that live in all the earth: “May your [fn]peace abound!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:2 - “It has seemed good to me to declare the signs and wonders which the Most High God has done for me.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:3 - “How great are His signs
And how mighty are His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom
And His dominion is from generation to generation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:4 - [fn]I, Nebuchadnezzar, was at ease in my house and flourishing in my palace.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:5 - “I saw a dream and it made me fearful; and these fantasies as I lay on my bed and the visions [fn]in my mind kept alarming me.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:6 - “So I gave orders to bring into my presence all the wise men of Babylon, that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:7 - “Then the [fn]magicians, the conjurers, the [fn]Chaldeans and the diviners came in and I related the dream [fn]to them, but they could not make its interpretation known to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:8 - “But finally Daniel came in before me, whose name is Belteshazzar according to the name of my god, and in whom is [fn]a spirit of the holy gods; and I related the dream [fn]to him, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:9 - ‘O Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, since I know that a spirit of the holy gods is in you and no mystery baffles you, tell me the visions of my dream which I have seen, along with its interpretation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:10 - ‘Now these were the visions [fn]in my mind as I lay on my bed: I was looking, and behold, there was a tree in the midst of the [fn]earth and its height was great.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:11 - ‘The tree grew large and became strong
And its height reached to the sky,
And it was visible to the end of the whole earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:12 - ‘Its foliage was beautiful and its fruit abundant,
And in it was food for all.
The beasts of the field found shade under it,
And the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches,
And all [fn]living creatures fed themselves from it.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:13 - ‘I was looking in the visions [fn]in my mind as I lay on my bed, and behold, an angelic watcher, a holy one, descended from heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:14 - ‘He shouted out and spoke as follows:
“Chop down the tree and cut off its branches,
Strip off its foliage and scatter its fruit;
Let the beasts flee from under it
And the birds from its branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:15 - “Yet leave the stump [fn]with its roots in the ground,
But with a band of iron and bronze around it
In the new grass of the field;
And let him be drenched with the dew of heaven,
And let [fn]him share with the beasts in the grass of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:16 - “Let his [fn]mind be changed from that of a man
And let a beast’s [fn]mind be given to him,
And let seven [fn]periods of time pass over him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:17 - “This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers
And the decision is a command of the holy ones,
In order that the living may know
That the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind,
And bestows it on whom He wishes
And sets over it the lowliest of men.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:18 - ‘This is the dream which I, King Nebuchadnezzar, have seen. Now you, Belteshazzar, tell me its interpretation, inasmuch as none of the wise men of my kingdom is able to make known to me the interpretation; but you are able, for a spirit of the holy gods is in you.’

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:19 - “Then Daniel, whose name is Belteshazzar, was appalled for a while as his thoughts alarmed him. The king responded and said, ‘Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its interpretation alarm you.’ Belteshazzar replied, ‘My lord, if only the dream applied to those who hate you and its interpretation to your adversaries!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:20 - ‘The tree that you saw, which became large and grew strong, whose height reached to the sky and was visible to all the earth

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:21 - and whose foliage was beautiful and its fruit abundant, and in which was food for all, under which the beasts of the field dwelt and in whose branches the birds of the sky lodged—

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:22 - it is you, O king; for you have become great and grown strong, and your [fn]majesty has become great and reached to the sky and your dominion to the end of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:23 - ‘In that the king saw an angelic watcher, a holy one, descending from heaven and saying, “Chop down the tree and destroy it; yet leave the stump [fn]with its roots in the ground, but with a band of iron and bronze around it in the new grass of the field, and let him be drenched with the dew of heaven, and let [fn]him share with the beasts of the field until seven [fn]periods of time pass over him,”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:24 - this is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High, which has come upon my lord the king:

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:25 - that you be driven away from mankind and your dwelling place be with the beasts of the field, and you be given grass to eat like cattle and be drenched with the dew of heaven; and seven [fn]periods of time will pass over you, until you recognize that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:26 - ‘And in that it was commanded to leave the stump [fn]with the roots of the tree, your kingdom will be [fn]assured to you after you recognize that it is Heaven that rules.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:27 - ‘Therefore, O king, may my advice be pleasing to you: [fn]break away now from your sins by doing righteousness and from your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor, in case there may be a prolonging of your prosperity.’

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:28 - “All this happened to Nebuchadnezzar the king.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:29 - “Twelve months later he was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:30 - “The king [fn]reflected and said, ‘Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal [fn]residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?’

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:31 - “While the word was in the king’s mouth, a voice [fn]came from heaven, saying, ‘King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: [fn]sovereignty has been removed from you,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:32 - and you will be driven away from mankind, and your dwelling place will be with the beasts of the field. You will be given grass to eat like cattle, and seven [fn]periods of time will pass over you until you recognize that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes.’

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:33 - “Immediately the word concerning Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled; and he was driven away from mankind and began eating grass like cattle, and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:34 - “But at the end of [fn]that period, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven and my [fn]reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever;
For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom endures from generation to generation.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:35 - “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing,
But He does according to His will in the host of heaven
And among the inhabitants of earth;
And no one can [fn]ward off His hand
Or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:36 - “At that time my [fn]reason returned to me. And my majesty and splendor were [fn]restored to me for the glory of my kingdom, and my counselors and my nobles began seeking me out; so I was reestablished in my [fn]sovereignty, and surpassing greatness was added to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 4:37 - “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise, exalt and honor the King of heaven, for all His works are [fn]true and His ways [fn]just, and He is able to humble those who walk in pride.”
