Daniel 8 - AMP

2 And I saw in the vision and it seemed that I was at Shushan the palace or fortress , which is in the province of Elam, and I saw in the vision and I was by the river of Ulai. 3 And I lifted up my eyes and saw, and behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns ; and the two horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. 4 I looked and saw the ram pushing and charging westward and northward and southward; no beast could stand before him, neither could anyone rescue from his power, but he did according to his will and pleasure and magnified himself. 5 As I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth without touching the ground, and the goat had a conspicuous and remarkable horn between his eyes . 6 And he came to the ram that had the two horns which I had seen standing on the bank of the river and ran at him in the heat of his power. 7 I saw him come close to the ram , and he was moved with anger against him and he struck the ram and broke his two horns; and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but the goat threw him to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. 8 And the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly, and when he was strong, the Alexander the Great suddenly died at the height of his power, and his empire was divided into four parts--east, west, north, and south--ruled over by his four generals.great horn was broken; and instead of there came up four notable horns toward the four winds of the heavens. 9 Out of littleness and small beginnings one of them came forth , a This horn of Dan. 8:9-12 is not to be confused with the ``little horn" of Dan. 7:8. This one is a prophetic forecast of Antiochus Epiphanes, who came out of Syria, one of the four dynasties into which Alexander's empire was divided, and became a great conqueror. Hating God, he profaned the temple and persecuted the Jews terribly. However, he serves as a type of the ``little horn" of Dan. 7:8, the even more ruthless beast of the last days (Rev. 13:4-9).horn whose grew exceedingly great toward the south and toward the east and toward the ornament . 10 And grew great, even against the host of heaven , and some of the host and of the stars it cast down to the ground and trampled on them, 11 Yes, magnified itself, even against the Prince of the host ; and from Him the continual was taken away and the place of sanctuary was cast down and profaned. 12 And the host was given together with the continual burnt offering because of the transgression . And righteousness and truth were cast down to the ground, and it accomplished this and prospered. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the one that spoke, For how long is the vision concerning the continual offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot? 14 And he said to him and to me, For 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed and restored. 15 When I, even I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it; then behold, there stood before me one with the appearance of a man. 16 And I heard a man's voice between the banks of the Ulai which called and said, Gabriel, make this man understand the vision. 17 So he came near where I stood, and when he came, I was frightened and fell on my face. But he said to me, Understand, O son of man, for the vision belongs to the time of the end. 18 Now as he was speaking with me, I fell stunned and in deep unconsciousness with my face to the ground; but he touched me and set me upright . 19 And he said, Behold, I will make you know what will be in the latter time of the indignation , for it has to do with the time of the end. 20 The ram you saw having two horns, they are the kings of Media and Persia. 21 And the shaggy and rough he-goat is the king of Greece, and the great horn between his eyes is the first king . 22 And as for the horn which was shattered, in whose place four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise out of his nation but not having his power. 23 And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached the fullness , a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark trickery and craftiness shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; and he shall corrupt and destroy astonishingly and shall prosper and do his own pleasure, and he shall corrupt and destroy the mighty men and the holy people (the people of the saints). 25 And through his policy he shall cause trickery to prosper in his hand; he shall magnify himself in his heart and mind, and in their security he will corrupt and destroy many. He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes, but he shall be broken and that by no hand. 26 The vision of the evenings and the mornings which has been told you is true. But seal up the vision, for it has to do with and belongs to the distant future. 27 And I, Daniel, fainted and was sick days. Afterward I rose up and did the king's business; and I wondered at the vision, but there was no one who understood it or could make it understood.
