"One of the most vivid illustrations of [pride taking credit for what God alone does] is the case of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon."[Nebuchadnezzar said], 'Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?' 31 While the word was in the king's mouth, a voice came from heaven, saying, 'King Nebuchadnezzar . . . sovereignty has been removed from you . . . 32 until you recognize that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, and bestows it on whomever He wishes.' (Daniel 4:30-32)(Piper, John. "Are You Humble Enough to Be Care-Free?". 1994.)
"Then, after his season of humiliation grazing in the fields like an ox, Nebuchadnezzar is restored and confesses,
"Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise, exalt, and honor the King of heaven, for all His works are true and His ways just, and He is able to humble those who walk in pride. (Daniel 4:37; cf. Isaiah 10:12)"
