Bible Commentary for Daniel 4:16

Wesley's Notes for Daniel 4:16


4:17 Of the holy ones - The decree was God's, and the demand was of the holy angels; if God enact it, the angels had the dispensation of it put into their hands, and they all consent to it as a just judgment of God to be executed by them according to the will of God. The most high ruleth - Nebuchadnezzar and his flatterers conceded he was a god in earth unaccountable to any. But the great God will make all men know he rules all in earth too, and sets up at his pleasure whom he will, and plucks them down again.


Discussion for Daniel 4:16

  • Jeanette Campbell /Warner on Daniel 4:16
    To change a heart you must know it, and the word asks us who can know this wicked and perverse miracle that God has given us? Jeremiah 17:9. Only God can know our hearts because He created us in His own image, and not only that, He is the Holy and awesome one that changes what He wishes, whatever He desires He is God; maker of heaven and earth.
  • Justina ekpen orukpe on Daniel 4:16
    That man is nothing but a pencil in the hands of God.
