Lee’s Addition:

Its leaves were lovely, Its fruit abundant, And in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, The birds of the heavens dwelt in its branches, And all flesh was fed from it. (Daniel 4:12 NKJV)

The chapters may have words modified to help our readers better understand. The changes will be added by placing the new word in (parenthesis).
