Dear John,

> God."  The verse reads "apodeixai umin kai tois sofistais umwn oti est

Where does NET Bible do this? The rendering NET Bible online gives for 
Dan 4:37 is the following:

4:37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of 
heaven, for all his deeds are right and his ways are just. He is able to 
bring down those who live in pride.

Yours,
Harold Holmyard
