Daniel 4:25

Context
4:25 You will be driven 1  from human society, 2  and you will live 3  with the wild animals. You will be fed 4  grass like oxen, 5  and you will become damp with the dew of the sky. Seven periods of time will pass by for you, before 6  you understand that the Most High is ruler over human kingdoms and gives them to whomever he wishes.

Daniel 4:34-35

Context

4:34 But at the end of the appointed time 7  I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked up 8  toward heaven, and my sanity returned to me.

I extolled the Most High,

and I praised and glorified the one who lives forever.

For his authority is an everlasting authority,

and his kingdom extends from one generation to the next.

4:35 All the inhabitants of the earth are regarded as nothing. 9 

He does as he wishes with the army of heaven

and with those who inhabit the earth.

No one slaps 10  his hand

and says to him, ‘What have you done?’

1 tn The Aramaic indefinite active plural is used here like the English passive. So also in v. 28, 29,32.

2 tn Aram “from mankind.” So also in v. 32.

3 tn Aram “your dwelling will be.” So also in v. 32.

4 tn Or perhaps “be made to eat.”

5 sn Nebuchadnezzar’s insanity has features that are associated with the mental disorder known as boanthropy, in which the person so afflicted imagines himself to be an ox or a similar animal and behaves accordingly.

6 tn Aram “until.”

7 tn Aram “days.”

8 tn Aram “lifted up my eyes.”

9 tc The present translation reads כְּלָא (kÿla’), with many medieval Hebrew MSS, rather than כְּלָה (kÿlah) of BHS.

10 tn Aram “strikes against.”
