(1 Peter 5:5‑6)
 There cannot be a doubt that Nebuchadnezzar really bowed in conscience and heart to the testimony which reached him through the prophet Daniel, and that he thus became a servant of the “Most High.”....He thus justified God, a sure and unmistakable sign of conversion, and as he justified Him his lips were filled with praise and adoration. (Daniel 4 by E. Dennett)
 He now speaks of Him as the King of heaven; and this is also evidence of his having been divinely taught. When Jehovah had His throne in Jerusalem, He was God of the earth as well as of heaven; but when He had abandoned His throne there, and had committed the sovereignty of the world to the Gentile monarch, He would be known as the God of heaven, and it is to Him as such that Daniel bore testimony before the king (Dan. 2:37-44). But while God had now assumed this title, He in no way surrendered either His claims to the earth, or the present actings of His power in government; for His object in the judicial stroke that fell upon Nebuchadnezzar was, as we have seen, to teach him, “that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will.” (Daniel 4 by E. Dennett)

J. N. Darby Translation

Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of the heavens, all whose works are truth, and his paths judgmenta: and those that walk in pride he is able to abaseb.
