Nebuchadnezzar
May Nebo protect the crown
Strong's #H5019

Nebuchadnezzar is the greatest of all the Babylonian kings. His forty-three year reign (605 to 562 B.C.) is dominated by extending the empire's power as far as possible. Biblically, he is known as the conquerer of Jerusalem who ultimately took Judah's king, Ezekiel, Daniel and many others captive.

In 586 B.C., Nebuchadnezzar destroys Jerusalem and completely burns its temple. God, after the king revels in his own glory and honor, causes him to have the mind of a beast for seven years in order to humble his proud heart (Daniel 4:30 - 34).
