The holy ones 1 of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will take possession of the kingdom forever and ever.’
“How great are his signs! How mighty are his wonders! His kingdom will last forever, 1 and his authority continues from one generation to the next.”
The trees of the field will yield their fruit and the earth will yield its crops. They will live securely on their land; they will know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hand of those who enslaved them.
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.
To him was given ruling authority, honor, and sovereignty. All peoples, nations, and language groups were serving 1 him. His authority is eternal and will not pass away. 2 His kingdom will not be destroyed. 3
Then the kingdom, authority, and greatness of the kingdoms under all of heaven will be delivered to the people of the holy ones 1 of the Most High. His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; all authorities will serve him and obey him.’
