“I, Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace: I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions in my head troubled me. Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream … but they did not make known to me the interpretation thereof … Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.
The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached to the end of all the earth: The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it … and, behold , a watcher and a Holy One came down from Heaven; He cried aloud, and said thus, HEW DOWN THE TREE, AND CUT OFF HIS BRANCHES, SHAKE OFF HIS LEAVES, AND SCATTER HIS FRUIT: LET THE BEASTS GET AWAY FROM UNDER IT, AND THE FOWLS FROM HIS BRANCHES. NEVERTHELESS LEAVE THE STUMP OF HIS ROOTS IN THE EARTH … LET HIS HEART BE CHANGED FROM MAN’S, AND LET A BEAST’S HEART BE GIVEN UNTO HIM; AND LET SEVEN TIMES PASS OVER HIM.
This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the Word of the Holy Ones: to the intent that the living may know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He Will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.” (Daniel 4: 4-17) KJV
