4:34 But at the end of the appointed time 1 I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked up 2 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. 3
He does as he wishes with the army of heaven
and with those who inhabit the earth.
No one slaps 4 his hand
and says to him, ‘What have you done?’
