"And now I will show you 1the truth. Behold, three more kings shall arise in Persia, and a fourth shall be far richer than all of them. And when he has become strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the kingdom of Greece.
Then 2a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion and 3do as he wills.
And as soon as he has arisen, 4his kingdom shall be broken and divided 5toward the 6four winds of heaven, but 7not to his posterity, nor according to the authority with which he ruled, for his kingdom shall be plucked up and go to others besides these.
