    The fourth man was The Angel of the Lord. The New American Bible makes this clear, but you can't tell from the KJV because a large section has been edited out.

    Through all the mistakes King Neb did the Lord Thy YHWH still loved him. He gave him a heart of a beast and claws on his hands and feet and the dew from Heaven made his hair like eagles feathers and he ate grass for 7 years until King Neb confessed with his heart, mind that YHWH is the most High God over all. The Lord restored Him and have Him back his place and Kingdom what a lovely God we serve.

    I love how God used this opportunity to show how great and powerful he is ! king neb had gathered all kinds of people to bow down to his great statue and they did except the 3 Hebrew but ...all that were there witnessed the men not being burnt up imagine the curiosity it must have stirred in the hearts and minds of the non believers there. Talk about seizing the moment!

    When you serve God and believe on his words
    No weapon form against you can hurst you. God have promise to protect his children and he came through . The great king saw for himself
    That indeed there is a God for all even for him .

    The three Hebrew men were bold for the Lord. They did not allow the enemy to distract them from worshiping the true and living God.They refused to bow down and worship the idol god. The Lord said, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Nebuchadnezzar was convinced that God was real and powerful.The Lord will change the heart of the enemy.
