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
