30 The king [a]reflected and said, ‘Is this not Babylon the (A)great, which I myself have built as a royal [b]residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?’ 31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, a voice [c]came from heaven, saying, ‘King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: [d]sovereignty has been removed from you, 32 and (B)you will be driven away from mankind, and your dwelling place will be with the beasts of the field. You will be given grass to eat like cattle, and (C)seven [e]periods of time will pass over you until you recognize that the (D)Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes.’
