Daniel 4:34-37

God makes Nebuchadnezzar better

34 At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked up towards heaven. My own mind returned to me again. I praised the powerful God above who lives for ever. I worshipped him as a great God.

His kingdom will continue for ever.

He will always have the authority to rule.

35 All the people on the earth seem like nothing to him.

He does whatever he wants among the angels in heaven,

and among the people on the earth too.

Nobody can stop him.

Nobody can ask him, ‘Why are you doing that?’

36 When my own mind returned to me, I also received my authority again as king. People respected me as a great king again. My officers and important men came back to work with me. I ruled again over my kingdom. And I became even greater than I was before. 37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise the King of heaven as a great God. He always does what is right and fair. When people are proud, he can cause them to become humble.
