Also I in the firstH259 yearH8141 of DariusH1867 the Mede,H4075 even I, stoodH5975 to confirmH2388 and to strengthenH4581 him.
And nowH6258 will I showH5046 you the truth.H571 Behold,H2009 there shall standH5975 up yetH5750 threeH7969 kingsH4428 in Persia;H6539 and the fourthH7243 shall be farH1419 richerH6238 than they all:H3605 and by his strengthH2394 through his richesH6239 he shall stirH5782 up allH3605 against the realmH4438 of Grecia.H3120
And a mightyH1368 kingH4428 shall standH5975 up, that shall ruleH4910 with greatH7227 dominion,H4474 and doH6213 according to his will.H7522
And when he shall standH5975 up, his kingdomH4438 shall be broken,H7665 and shall be dividedH2673 toward the fourH702 windsH7307 of heaven;H8064 and not to his posterity,H319 norH3808 according to his dominionH4915 whichH834 he ruled:H4910 for his kingdomH4438 shall be pluckedH5428 up, even for othersH312 besideH905 those.H428
And the kingH4428 of the southH5045 shall be strong,H2388 and one of his princes;H8269 and he shall be strongH2388 aboveH5921 him, and have dominion;H4910 his dominionH4474 shall be a greatH7227 dominion.H4475
And in the endH7093 of yearsH8141 they shall joinH2266 themselves together; for the king'sH4428 daughterH1323 of the southH5045 shall comeH935 to the kingH4428 of the northH6828 to makeH6213 an agreement:H4339 but she shall not retainH6113 the powerH3581 of the arm;H2220 neitherH3808 shall he stand,H5975 nor his arm:H2220 but she shall be givenH5414 up, and they that broughtH935 her, and he that begatH3205 her, and he that strengthenedH2388 her in these times.H6256
But out of a branchH5342 of her rootsH8328 shall one standH5975 up in his estate,H3653 which shall comeH935 with an army,H2428 and shall enterH935 into the fortressH4581 of the kingH4428 of the north,H6828 and shall dealH6213 against them, and shall prevail:H2388
And shall alsoH1571 carryH935 captivesH7628 into EgyptH4714 their gods,H430 with their princes,H5257 and with their preciousH2532 vesselsH3627 of silverH3701 and of gold;H2091 and he shall continueH5975 more yearsH8141 than the kingH4428 of the north.H6828
So the kingH4428 of the southH5045 shall comeH935 into his kingdom,H4438 and shall returnH7725 intoH413 his own land.H127
But his sonsH1121 shall be stirredH1624 up, and shall assembleH622 a multitudeH1995 of greatH7227 forces:H2428 and one shall certainly come,H935 and overflow,H7857 and passH5674 through: then shall he return,H7725 and be stirredH1624 up, even to his fortress.H4581
And the kingH4428 of the southH5045 shall be moved with choler,H4843 and shall comeH3318 forthH3318 and fightH3898 with him, even with the kingH4428 of the north:H6828 and he shall setH5975 forthH5975 a greatH7227 multitude;H1995 but the multitudeH1995 shall be givenH5414 into his hand.H3027
And when he has takenH5375 away the multitude,H1995 his heartH3824 shall be liftedH7311 up; and he shall castH5307 downH5307 many tenH7239 thousands:H7239 but he shall not be strengthenedH5810 by it.
For the kingH4428 of the northH6828 shall return,H7725 and shall setH5975 forth a multitudeH1995 greaterH7227 thanH4480 the former,H7223 and shall certainly comeH935 afterH7093 certainH6256 yearsH8141 with a greatH1419 armyH2428 and with much riches.H7399
And in thoseH1992 timesH6256 there shall manyH7227 standH5975 up againstH5921 the kingH4428 of the south:H5045 also the robbersH6530 of your peopleH5971 shall exaltH5375 themselves to establishH5975 the vision;H2377 but they shall fall.H3782
So the kingH4428 of the northH6828 shall come,H935 and castH8210 up a mount,H5550 and takeH3920 the most fencedH4013 cities:H5892 and the armsH2220 of the southH5045 shall not withstand,H5975 neitherH369 his chosenH4005 people,H5971 neitherH369 shall there be any strengthH3581 to withstand.H5975
But he that comesH935 againstH413 him shall doH6213 according to his ownH7522 will,H7522 and noneH369 shall standH5975 beforeH6440 him: and he shall standH5975 in the gloriousH6643 land,H776 which by his handH3027 shall be consumed.H3615
He shall also setH7760 his faceH6440 to enterH935 with the strengthH8633 of his wholeH3605 kingdom,H4438 and uprightH3477 ones with him; thus shall he do:H6213 and he shall giveH5414 him the daughterH1323 of women,H802 corruptingH7843 her: but she shall not standH5975 on his side, neitherH3808 be for him.
After this shall he turnH7725 his faceH6440 to the isles,H339 and shall takeH3920 many:H7227 but a princeH7101 for his own behalf shall cause the reproachH2781 offered by him to cease;H7673 withoutH1115 his own reproachH2781 he shall cause it to turnH7725 on him.
Then he shall turnH7725 his faceH6440 toward the fortH4581 of his own land:H776 but he shall stumbleH3782 and fall,H5307 and not be found.H4672
Then shall standH5975 up in his estateH3653 a raiserH5674 of taxesH5065 in the gloryH1925 of the kingdom:H4438 but within fewH259 daysH3117 he shall be destroyed,H7665 neitherH3808 in anger,H639 norH3808 in battle.H4421
And in his estateH3653 shall standH5975 up a vileH959 person, to whomH5921 they shall not giveH5414 the honorH1935 of the kingdom:H4438 but he shall comeH935 in peaceably,H7962 and obtainH2388 the kingdomH4438 by flatteries.H2519
And with the armsH2220 of a floodH7858 shall they be overflowedH7857 from beforeH6440 him, and shall be broken;H7665 yes,H1571 alsoH1571 the princeH5057 of the covenant.H1285
And after the leagueH2266 made with him he shall workH6213 deceitfully:H4820 for he shall comeH5927 up, and shall becomeH6105 strongH6105 with a smallH4592 people.H1471
He shall enterH935 peaceablyH7962 even on the fattestH4924 places of the province;H4082 and he shall doH6213 that whichH834 his fathersH1 have not done,H6213 nor his fathers'H1 fathers;H1 he shall scatterH967 among them the prey,H961 and spoil,H7998 and riches:H7399 yes, and he shall forecastH2803 his devicesH4284 againstH5921 the strongH4013 holds,H4013 even for a time.H6256
And he shall stirH5782 up his powerH3581 and his courageH3824 againstH5921 the kingH4428 of the southH5045 with a greatH1419 army;H2428 and the kingH4428 of the southH5045 shall be stirredH1624 up to battleH4421 with a veryH5704 H3960 greatH1419 and mightyH6099 army;H2428 but he shall not stand:H5975 for they shall forecastH2803 devicesH4284 againstH5921 him.
Yes, they that feedH398 of the portionH6598 of his meatH6598 shall destroyH7665 him, and his armyH2428 shall overflow:H7857 and manyH7227 shall fallH5307 down slain.H2491
And bothH8147 of these kings'H4428 heartsH3824 shall be to do mischief,H4827 and they shall speakH1696 liesH3576 atH5921 oneH259 table;H7979 but it shall not prosper:H6743 for yetH5750 the endH7093 shall be at the time appointed.H4150
Then shall he returnH7725 into his landH776 with greatH1419 riches;H7399 and his heartH3824 shall be againstH5921 the holyH6944 covenant;H1285 and he shall doH6213 exploits, and returnH7725 to his own land.H776
At the time appointedH4150 he shall return,H7725 and comeH935 toward the south;H5045 but it shall not be as the former,H7223 or as the latter.H314
For the shipsH6716 of ChittimH3794 shall comeH935 against him: therefore he shall be grieved,H3512 and return,H7725 and have indignationH2194 againstH5921 the holyH6944 covenant:H1285 so shall he do;H6213 he shall even return,H7725 and have intelligenceH995 with them that forsakeH5800 the holyH6944 covenant.H1285
And armsH2220 shall standH5975 on his part, and they shall polluteH2490 the sanctuaryH4720 of strength,H4581 and shall takeH5493 awayH5493 the dailyH8548 sacrifice, and they shall placeH5414 the abominationH8251 that makes desolate.H8074
And such as do wickedlyH7561 against the covenantH1285 shall he corruptH2610 by flatteries:H2514 but the peopleH5971 that do knowH3045 their GodH430 shall be strong,H2388 and doH6213 exploits.
And they that understandH7919 among the peopleH5971 shall instructH995 many:H7227 yet they shall fallH3782 by the sword,H2719 and by flame,H3852 by captivity,H7628 and by spoil,H961 manyH7227 days.H3117
Now when they shall fall,H3782 they shall be helpedH5826 with a littleH4592 help:H5828 but manyH7227 shall joinH3867 to them with flatteries.H2519
And some of them of understandingH7919 shall fall,H3782 to tryH6884 them, and to purge,H1305 and to make them white,H3835 even to the timeH6256 of the end:H7093 becauseH3588 H5750 it is yetH5750 for a time appointed.H4150
And the kingH4428 shall doH6213 according to his will;H7522 and he shall exaltH7311 himself, and magnifyH1431 himself aboveH5921 everyH3605 god,H410 and shall speakH1696 marvelousH6381 things againstH5921 the GodH410 of gods,H410 and shall prosperH6743 tillH5704 the indignationH2195 be accomplished:H3615 for that that is determinedH2782 shall be done.H6213
NeitherH3808 shall he regardH995 the GodH430 of his fathers,H1 nor the desireH2532 of women,H802 norH3808 regardH995 anyH3605 god:H433 for he shall magnifyH1431 himself aboveH5921 all.H3605
But in his estateH3653 shall he honorH3513 the GodH433 of forces:H4581 and a godH433 whomH834 his fathersH1 knewH3045 not shall he honorH3513 with gold,H2091 and silver,H3701 and with preciousH3368 stones,H68 and pleasantH2530 things.
Thus shall he doH6213 in the mostH4581 strongH4581 holdsH4013 with a strangeH5236 god,H433 whomH834 he shall acknowledgeH5234 and increaseH7235 with glory:H3519 and he shall cause them to ruleH4910 over many,H7227 and shall divideH2505 the landH127 for gain.H4242
And at the timeH6256 of the endH7093 shall the kingH4428 of the southH5045 pushH5055 at him: and the kingH4428 of the northH6828 shall comeH8175 againstH5921 him like a whirlwind,H8175 with chariots,H7393 and with horsemen,H6571 and with manyH7227 ships;H591 and he shall enterH935 into the countries,H776 and shall overflowH7857 and passH5674 over.H5674
He shall enterH935 also into the gloriousH6643 land,H776 and manyH7227 countries shall be overthrown:H3782 but theseH428 shall escapeH4422 out of his hand,H3027 even Edom,H123 and Moab,H4124 and the chiefH7225 of the childrenH1121 of Ammon.H5983
He shall stretchH7971 forth his handH3027 also on the countries:H776 and the landH776 of EgyptH4714 shall not escape.H6413
But he shall have powerH4910 over the treasuresH4362 of goldH2091 and of silver,H3701 and over allH3605 the preciousH2530 things of Egypt:H4714 and the LibyansH3864 and the EthiopiansH3569 shall be at his steps.H4703
But tidingsH8052 out of the eastH4217 and out of the northH6828 shall troubleH926 him: therefore he shall goH3318 forthH3318 with greatH1419 furyH2534 to destroy,H8045 and utterly to make awayH2763 many.H7227
And he shall plantH5193 the tabernaclesH168 of his palaceH643 betweenH996 the seasH3220 in the gloriousH6643 holyH6944 mountain;H2022 yet he shall comeH935 to his end,H7093 and noneH369 shall helpH5826 him.
