Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:37

_ _ praise ... extol ... honour — He heaps word on word, as if he cannot say enough in praise of God.

_ _ all whose works ... truth ... judgment — that is, are true and just (Revelation 15:3; Revelation 16:7). God has not dealt unjustly or too severely with me; whatever I have suffered, I deserved it all. It is a mark of true contrition to condemn one’s self, and justify God (Psalms 51:4).

_ _ those that walk in pride ... abase — exemplified in me. He condemns himself before the whole world, in order to glorify God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:34-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 4:37

Now I praise — Thus can the Lord make the stoutest hearts to stoop, and do him homage. This doxology proceeds from his heart. Are truth — God is truth essentially: he is the rule and standard of truth, his words are truth, his ways are truth, and they are judgment: he is wise, and hath dealt justly with me for my pride, and in very faithfulness hath afflicted me, and in very tenderness hath restored me; I do, and ever shall adore him for it. Able to abase — As he hath declared upon me, in stupendous changes, which I proclaim to all the world. He had a just controversy with me, and I have no ground to quarrel with him, but to give him glory by this confession. What authority had any one to say, That this man "was no convert?" We can no more doubt of his salvation than of Solomon's.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 4:37

Now I Nebuchadnezzar (u) praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

(u) He not only praises God for his deliverance, but also confesses his fault, so that God alone may have the glory, and man the shame, and so that God may be exalted and man cast down.
