All this came upon King Nebuchadnezzar.
At the end of twelve months he was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon,
and the king answered and said, 1"Is not this great Babylon, which I have built by 2my mighty power as a royal residence and for 3the glory of my majesty?"
314While the words were still in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, "O King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: The kingdom has departed from you,
325and you shall be driven from among men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. And you shall be made to eat grass like an ox, and seven periods of time shall pass over you, 6until you know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will."
Immediately the word was fulfilled against Nebuchadnezzar. 7He was driven from among men and ate grass like an ox, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair grew as long as eagles' feathers, and his nails were like birds' claws.
