28 All this came upon King Nebuchadnezzar. 29 At the end of the twelve months he was walking 1 about the royal palace of Babylon. 30 The king n spoke, saying, "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?" 31 o While the word was still in the king's mouth, p a voice fell from heaven: "King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: the kingdom has departed from you! 32 And q they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven 2 times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses." 33 That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
