    Art - "Are"; second person singular.

    Barnes' Notes on Daniel 4:22

    It is thou, O king - It is a representation of thyself. Compare Daniel 2:38.

    That art grown and become strong - Referring to the limited extent of his dominion when he came to the throne, and the increase of his power by a wise administration and by conquest.

    For thy greatness is grown - The majesty and glory of the monarch had increased by all his conquests, and by the magnificence which he had thrown around his court.

    And reacheth unto heaven - An expression merely denoting the greatness of his authority. The tree is said to have reached unto heaven Daniel 4:11, and the stateliness and grandeur of so great a monarch might be represented by language which seemed to imply that he had control over all things.

    And thy dominion to the end of the earth - To the extent of the world as then known. This was almost literally true.

    Wesley's Notes on Daniel 4:22

    4:22 Reacheth unto heaven - Thou art high and mighty in the in majesty which God hath given thee. To the end of the earth - To the Caspian sea north, to the Euxine and Aegean sea west, to the Mediterranean south.
