Daniel 5:21 NAS

21 "He was also 1driven away from mankind, and his heart was made like that of beasts, and his dwelling place was with the 2wild donkeys. He was given grass to eat like cattle, and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven until * he recognized that the 3Most High God is ruler over the realm of mankind and that He sets over it whomever * He wishes.
