Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:36

_ _ An inscription in the East India Company’s Museum is read as describing the period of Nebuchadnezzar’s insanity [G. V. Smith]. In the so-called standard inscription read by Sir H. Rawlinson, Nebuchadnezzar relates that during four (?) years he ceased to lay out buildings, or to furnish with victims Merodach’s altar, or to clear out the canals for irrigation. No other instance in the cuneiform inscriptions occurs of a king recording his own inaction.

_ _ my counsellors ... sought unto me — desired to have me, as formerly, to be their head, wearied with the anarchy which prevailed in my absence (compare Note, see on Daniel 4:33); the likelihood of a conspiracy of the nobles is confirmed by this verse.

_ _ majesty was added — My authority was greater than ever before (Job 42:12; Proverbs 22:4; “added,” Matthew 6:33).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:34-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 4:36

Brightness — I had again the majesty of a king in my countenance. I was established — In wonted power and place, owned and obeyed, by all. Majesty was added — He was the most august and magnificient prince on earth, much more so than before.

At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and (t) my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

(t) By whom it seems that he had been put from his kingdom before.

my reason:
Every thing was fulfilled that was exhibited in the dream and its interpretation; and God so ordered it in his providence, that Nebuchadnezzar's counsellors and lords sought for him and gladly reinstated him in his kingdom. It is confidently believed that he was a true convert, and died in the faith of the God of Israel.
Daniel 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom [is] from generation to generation:

mine:

Daniel 4:15-16 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and [let] his portion [be] with the beasts in the grass of 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.
Daniel 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling [shall be] with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
2 Chronicles 33:12-13 And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, ... And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he [was] God.

added:

1 Samuel 2:30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed [that] thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
Job 13:12 Your remembrances [are] like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.
Proverbs 22:4 By humility [and] the fear of the LORD [are] riches, and honour, and life.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
