4:11 The tree grew large and strong.
Its top reached far into the sky;
4:22 it is you, 3 O king! For you have become great and strong. Your greatness is such that it reaches to heaven, and your authority to the ends of the earth.
2 tn Or “to the end of all the earth” (so KJV, ASV); NCV, CEV “from anywhere on earth.”
3 sn Much of modern scholarship views this chapter as a distortion of traditions that were originally associated with Nabonidus rather than with Nebuchadnezzar. A Qumran text, the Prayer of Nabonidus, is often cited for parallels to these events.
