In Ziegler's critical edition of 1954 Dan 4 OG has only 34 verses and  
the same is true for Munnich's reworked edition (1999). Only in  
Rahlfs  edition does the chapter have 37 verses.
Only Rahlfs reads OG as you do. Ziegler (1954) has hOTI hEIS ESTI  
QEOS while Munnich has hOTI hEIS ESTIN hO QEOS.
