Daniel 8:14-27

MSG 14 "The other answered, 'Over the course of 2,300 sacrifices, evening and morning. Then the Sanctuary will be set right again.' NIV 14 He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.” MSG 15 "While I, Daniel, was trying to make sense of what I was seeing, suddenly there was a humanlike figure standing before me. NIV 15 While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there before me stood one who looked like a man. MSG 16 "Then I heard a man's voice from over by the Ulai Canal calling out, 'Gabriel, tell this man what is going on. Explain the vision to him.' NIV 16 And I heard a man’s voice from the Ulai calling, “Gabriel, tell this man the meaning of the vision.” MSG 17 He came up to me, but when he got close I became terrified and fell facedown on the ground. 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.” MSG 18 As soon as he spoke, I fainted, my face in the dirt. But he picked me up and put me on my feet. 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. MSG 19 "And then he continued, 'I want to tell you what is going to happen as the judgment days of wrath wind down, for there is going to be an end to all this. 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. MSG 20 "'The double-horned ram you saw stands for the two kings of the Medes and Persians. NIV 20 The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia. MSG 21 The billy goat stands for the kingdom of the Greeks. The huge horn on its forehead is the first Greek king. NIV 21 The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king. MSG 22 The four horns that sprouted after it was broken off are the four kings that come after him, but without his power. 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. MSG 23 "'As their kingdoms cool down and rebellions heat up, A king will show up, hard-faced, a master trickster. 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. MSG 24 His power will swell enormously. He'll talk big, high-handedly, Doing whatever he pleases, knocking off heroes and holy ones left and right. 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. MSG 25 He'll plot and scheme to make crime flourish - and oh, how it will flourish! He'll think he's invincible and get rid of anyone who gets in his way. But when he takes on the Prince of all princes, he'll be smashed to bits - but not by human hands. 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. MSG 26 This vision of the 2,300 sacrifices, evening and morning, is accurate but confidential. Keep it to yourself. It refers to the far future.' 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.” MSG 27 "I, Daniel, walked around in a daze, unwell for days. Then I got a grip on myself and went back to work taking care of the king's affairs. But I continued to be upset by the vision. I couldn't make sense of 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.
