And he shall do according to his will, and the king shall exalt and magnify himself against every god, and shall speak great swelling words, and shall prosper until the indignation shall be accomplished: for it is coming to an end.
And he shall not regard any gods of his fathers, nor the desire of women, neither shall he regard any deity: for he shall magnify himself above all.
And he shall honour the god of forces on his place: and a god whom his fathers knew not he shall honour with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and desirable things.
And he shall do in the strong places of refuge with a strange god, and shall increase his glory: and he shall subject many to them, and shall distribute the land in gifts.
And at the end of the time he shall conflict with the king of the south: and the king of the north shall come against him with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and they shall enter into the land: and he shall break in pieces, and pass on:
and he shall enter into the land of beauty, and many shall fail: but these shall escape out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
And he shall stretch forth hand over the land; and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
And he shall have the mastery over the secret of gold and silver, and over all the desirable of Egypt, and of the Libyans and Ethiopians in their strongholds.
But rumors and anxieties out of the east and from the north shall trouble him; and he shall come with great wrath to destroy many.
And he shall pitch the tabernacle of his palace between the seas in the holy mountain of beauty: he shall come to his portion, and there is none to deliver him.
