Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream and prophetic visions of his head on his bed. Then he recorded this dream, setting out the essence of the matter.
2 Having begun the speech, Daniel said: I saw in my night vision, and, behold, the four winds of heaven fought on the great sea,
3 and four great beasts came out of the sea, unlike one another.
4 The first is like a lion, but it has eagle wings; I watched until his wings were pulled out, and he was lifted from the ground, and stood on his feet like a man, and a human heart was given to him.
5 And then there was a beast, the second, looking like a bear, stood on one side, and three fangs in his mouth, between his teeth; he was told this: `get up, eat a lot of meat! '
6 Then I saw, here is another beast, like a leopard; he has four bird wings on his back, and four heads were with this beast, and power was given to him.
7 After this I saw in night visions, and behold the fourth beast, terrible and terrible and very strong; he has big iron teeth; he devours and crushes, but tramples the remains with his feet; he was different from all previous animals, and he had ten horns.
eight I looked at these horns, and, behold, there was still a small horn between them, and three of the former horns were uprooted before him, and, in this horn were eyes like human eyes, and a mouth speaking arrogantly.

nine I finally saw that thrones were set, and the Ancient of Days sat down; His robe was white as snow, and the hair of his head like a pure wave; His throne is like a flame of fire, His wheels are a blazing fire.
ten A river of fire went out and passed before Him; Thousands of thousands served Him and darkness came before Him; the judges sat down and the books opened.
eleven I saw then that for the utterance of the arrogant words that the horn spoke, the beast was killed in my eyes, and his body was crushed and put on fire.
12 And their power was taken away from other animals, and the continuation of life was given to them only temporarily and temporarily.
13 I saw in night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven came the Son of man, as it were, came to the Ancient of days, and was brought to Him.
fourteen And He has been given power, glory, and a kingdom, so that all nations, tribes, and languages ​​serve Him; His dominion is eternal dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom will not be destroyed.

fifteen My spirit trembled in me, Daniel, in my body, and the visions of my head confused me.
16 I went to one of the upcoming ones and asked him about the true meaning of all this, and he began to speak with me, and explained to me the meaning of what was said:
17 `these four great beasts [mean] that the four kings will arise from the earth.
18 Then the saints of the Most High will accept the kingdom and will possess the kingdom forever and ever. ”
19 Then I wished for an accurate explanation of the fourth beast, which was different from everyone and very scary, with iron teeth and copper claws, devoured and crushed, and trampled the remains with his feet,
20 and about the ten horns that were on his head, and about the other, who came out again, in front of whom three fell out, about that same horn, which had eyes and lips speaking arrogantly, and which in appearance became more than others.
21 I saw how this horn fought with the saints and overcame them,
22 until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to seize the kingdom.
23 He said this: the fourth beast - the fourth kingdom will be on earth, different from all kingdoms, which will devour the whole earth, trample and crush it.
24 And ten horns mean that ten kings will arise from this kingdom, and after them will arise another, different from the former, and will destroy three kings,
25 and against the Almighty He will utter words and oppress the saints of the Almighty; even dreams of abolishing their [holiday] times and the law, and they will be betrayed into his hand until time and time and half time.
26 Then the judges will sit down and rob him of the power to destroy and destroy to the end.
27 The kingdom and kingdom power and greatness in all under heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an eternal kingdom, and all the rulers will serve and obey Him.
28 Here is the end of the word. My thoughts greatly embarrassed me, Daniel, and my face changed on me; but I have kept the word in my heart.
