Daniel 5:20-22

5:20 And when his mind 1  became arrogant 2  and his spirit filled with pride, he was deposed from his royal throne and his honor was removed from him. 5:21 He was driven from human society, his mind 3  was changed to that of an animal, he lived 4  with the wild donkeys, he was fed grass like oxen, and his body became damp with the dew of the sky, until he came to understand that the most high God rules over human kingdoms, and he appoints over them whomever he wishes.

5:22 “But you, his son 5  Belshazzar, have not humbled yourself, 6  although you knew all this.

1 tn Aram “heart.”

2 sn The point of describing Nebuchadnezzar as arrogant is that he had usurped divine prerogatives, and because of his immense arrogance God had dealt decisively with him.

3 tn Aram “heart.”

4 tn Aram “his dwelling.”

5 tn Or “descendant”; or “successor.”

6 tn Aram “your heart.”
