Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:26

_ _ thou shalt have known, etc. — a promise of spiritual grace to him, causing the judgment to humble, not harden, his heart.

_ _ heavens do rule — The plural is used, as addressed to Nebuchadnezzar, the head of an organized earthly kingdom, with various principalities under the supreme ruler. So “the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 4:17; Greek, “kingdom of the heavens”) is a manifold organization, composed of various orders of angels, under the Most High (Ephesians 1:20, Ephesians 1:21; Ephesians 3:10; Colossians 1:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:19-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 4:26

The heavens do rule — That God, who sits in heaven rules over all.
