Clichés endure because they are so often true to life. This applies to “truth is stranger than fiction.” Put another way, “this must be true because no one could make this up.”
These statements accurately capture the story in Daniel chapter 4, one of the most unusual chapters in the Bible. King Nebuchadnezzar had another dream. But this one proved to be his undoing and then his renewing. Prideful as a man, he became insane and lived like a beast until he humbled himself and praised God with some of the most eloquent words ever to fall from human lips.
