Daniel 8

RHE 1 In the third year of the reign of king Baltasar, a vision appeared to me. I, Daniel, after what I had seen in the beginning, NIV 1 In the third year of King Belshazzar’s reign, I, Daniel, had a vision, after the one that had already appeared to me. RHE 2 Saw in my vision when I was in the castle of Susa, which is in the province of Elam: and I saw in the vision that I was over the gate of Ulai. NIV 2 In my vision I saw myself in the citadel of Susa in the province of Elam; in the vision I was beside the Ulai Canal. RHE 3 And I lifted up my eyes, and saw: and behold a ram stood before the water, having two high horns, and one higher than the other, and growing up. Afterward NIV 3 I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. RHE 4 I saw the ram pushing with his horns against the west, and against the north, and against the south: and no beasts could withstand him, nor be delivered out of his hand: and he did according to his own will, and became great. NIV 4 I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great. RHE 5 And I understood: and behold a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and he touched not the ground, and the he goat had a notable horn between his eyes. NIV 5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. RHE 6 And he went up to the ram that had the horns, which I had seen standing before the gate, and he ran towards him in the force of his strength. NIV 6 It came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at it in great rage. RHE 7 And when he was come near the ram, he was enraged against him, and struck the ram: and broke his two horns, and the ram could not withstand him: and when he had cast him down on the ground, he stamped upon him, and none could deliver the ram out of his hand. NIV 7 I saw it attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against it; the goat knocked it to the ground and trampled on it, and none could rescue the ram from its power. RHE 8 And the he goat became exceeding great: and when he was grown, the great horn was broken, and there came up four horns under it towards the four winds of heaven. NIV 8 The goat became very great, but at the height of its power the large horn was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven. RHE 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn: and it became great against the south, and against the east, and against the strength. NIV 9 Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. RHE 10 And it was magnified even unto the strength of heaven: and it threw down of the strength, and of the stars, and trod upon them. NIV 10 It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. RHE 11 And it was magnified even to the prince of the strength: and it took away from him the continual sacrifice, and cast down the place of his sanctuary. NIV 11 It set itself up to be as great as the commander of the army of the LORD; it took away the daily sacrifice from the LORD, and his sanctuary was thrown down. RHE 12 And strength was given him against the continual sacrifice, because of sins: and truth shall be cast down on the ground, and he shall do and shall prosper. NIV 12 Because of rebellion, the LORD’s people and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground. RHE 13 And I heard one of the saints speaking, and one saint said to another I know not to whom, that was speaking: How long shall be the vision, concerning the continual sacrifice, and the sin of the desolation that is made: and the sanctuary, and the strength be trodden under foot? NIV 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, “How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled—the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, the surrender of the sanctuary and the trampling underfoot of the LORD’s people?” RHE 14 And he said to him: Unto evening and morning two thousand three hundred days: and the sanctuary shall be cleansed. NIV 14 He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.” RHE 15 And it came to pass when I, Daniel, saw the vision, and sought the meaning, that behold there stood before me as it were the appearance of a man. NIV 15 While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there before me stood one who looked like a man. RHE 16 And I heard the voice of a man between Ulai: and he called, and said: Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. NIV 16 And I heard a man’s voice from the Ulai calling, “Gabriel, tell this man the meaning of the vision.” RHE 17 And he came, and stood near where I stood: and when he was come, I fell on my face, trembling, and he said to me: Understand, O son of man, for in the time of the end the vision shall be fulfilled. NIV 17 As he came near the place where I was standing, I was terrified and fell prostrate. “Son of man,” he said to me, “understand that the vision concerns the time of the end.” RHE 18 And when he spoke to me, I fell flat on the ground: and he touched me, and set me upright. NIV 18 While he was speaking to me, I was in a deep sleep, with my face to the ground. Then he touched me and raised me to my feet. RHE 19 And he said to me: I will shew thee what things are to come to pass in the end of the malediction: for the time hath its end. NIV 19 He said: “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end. RHE 20 The ram, which thou sawest with horns, is the king of the Medes and Persians. NIV 20 The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia. RHE 21 And the he goat, is the king of the Greeks, and the great horn that was between his eyes, the same is the first king. NIV 21 The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king. RHE 22 But whereas when that was broken, there arose up four for it, four kings shall rise up of his nation, but not with his strength. NIV 22 The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power. RHE 23 And after their reign, when iniquities shall be grown up, there shall arise a king of a shameless face, and understanding dark sentences. NIV 23 “In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise. RHE 24 And his power shall be strengthened, but not by his own force: and he shall lay all things waste, and shall prosper, and do more than can be believed. And he shall destroy the mighty, and the people of the saints, NIV 24 He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people. RHE 25 According to his will, and craft shall be successful in his hand: and his heart shall be puffed up, and in the abundance of all things he shall kill many: and he shall rise up against the prince of princes, and shall be broken without hand. NIV 25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power. RHE 26 And the vision of the evening and the morning, which was told, is true: thou, therefore, seal up the vision, because it shall come to pass after many days. NIV 26 “The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.” RHE 27 And I, Daniel, languished, and was sick for some days: and when I was risen up, I did the king’s business, and I was astonished at the vision, and there was none that could interpret it. NIV 27 I, Daniel, was worn out. I lay exhausted for several days. Then I got up and went about the king’s business. I was appalled by the vision; it was beyond understanding.
