Daniel 4:17

Context

4:17 This announcement is by the decree of the sentinels;

this decision is by the pronouncement of the holy ones,

so that 1  those who are alive may understand

that the Most High has authority over human kingdoms, 2 

and he bestows them on whomever he wishes.

He establishes over them even the lowliest of human beings.’

Daniel 4:30

Context
4:30 The king uttered these words: “Is this not the great Babylon that I have built for a royal residence 3  by my own mighty strength 4  and for my majestic honor?”

1 tc The present translation follows an underlying reading of עַל־דִּבְרַת (’al-divrat, “so that”) rather than MT עַד־דִּבְרַת (’ad-divrat, “until”).

2 tn Aram “the kingdom of man”; NASB “the realm of mankind”; NCV “every kingdom on earth.”

3 tn Aram “house.”

4 tn Aram “by the might of my strength.”
