Daniel 4:17; Daniel 5:20; Job 12:18; Psalm 75:7; Romans 13:1
17 The sentence is by the decree of fthe watchers, the decision by the word of gthe holy ones, to the end that the living may know that the Most High mrules the kingdom of men nand gives it to whom he will and osets over it the lowliest of men.’
20 But xwhen his heart was lifted up and his spirit was hardened so that he dealt proudly, yhe was brought down from his kingly throne, and his glory was taken from him.
18 He slooses the bonds of kings
and binds a waistcloth on their hips.
7 but it is uGod who executes judgment,
vputting down one and lifting up another.
