Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 In the third year of the reign of Belshazzar the king appeared to me, Daniel, a vision after that which had appeared to me before.
2 And I saw in a vision, and when I saw, I was in Susa, the patron city in the region of Elam, and I saw in a vision - as if I were by the river Ulai.
3 I raised my eyes and saw: behold, one ram is standing by the river; he has two horns, and the horns are high, but one is higher than the other, and the highest rose after.
4 I saw this ram ramming west and north and south, and no beast could stand against it, and no one could save from it; he did what he wanted and dignified.
5 I carefully looked at it, and now, from the west a goat walked across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground; this goat had a prominent horn between his eyes.
6 He went to that ram, which had horns, which I saw standing by the river, and rushed at him in his great fury.
7 And I saw how, approaching the ram, he was angry with him and struck the ram, and broke both his horns; and the ram lacked the strength to stand against him, and he threw him to the ground and trampled him, and there was no one who could save the ram from him.
eight Then the goat was extremely magnified; but when he was strengthened, a big horn broke, and four came to his place, facing the four winds of heaven.
nine From one of them came a small horn, which has grown tremendously to the south and east and to a beautiful country,
ten and ascended to the host of heaven, and brought down to earth part of this host and stars, and trampled them,
eleven and even ascended to the Leader of this army, and daily sacrifice was taken from him, and the place of his relic was cursed.
12 And the army was betrayed along with the daily sacrifice for wickedness, and he, casting the truth to the earth, acted and succeeded.
13 And I heard one holy speaker, and this saint said to someone asking: `How long does this vision of daily sacrifice and devastating wickedness stretch when the shrine and the army are violated? '
fourteen And he said to me: `for two thousand three hundred evenings and mornings; and then the sanctuary will be cleansed. ”

fifteen And it came to pass: when I, Daniel, saw this vision and looked for its meanings, behold, I stood before me as the face of a husband.
16 And I heard from the middle of Ulai a human voice that called out and said: `Gabriel! explain this vision to him! '
17 And he went to the place where I stood, and when he came, I was horrified and fell on my face; and he said to me: `Know, son of man, that vision refers to the end of time! '
18 And when he spoke to me, I lay without feelings with my face on the ground; but he touched me and put me in my place,
19 and said: `` behold, I reveal to you what will be in the last days of anger; for it refers to the end of a certain time.
20 The Aries you saw with two horns is the kings of Media and Persia.
21 And the shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the big horn that is between his eyes is her first king;
22 he broke, and four others came out instead: these are the four kingdoms that will arise from this nation, but not with its power.
23 At the end of their kingdom, when the apostates fulfill the measure of their iniquities, the king will arise arrogant and skilled in treachery;
24 and his strength will be strengthened, although not by his strength, and he will produce amazing devastations and keep pace and act and destroy the powerful and the people of saints,
25 and in his mind even the cunning will succeed in his hand, and he will be exalted with his heart, and will destroy many in the world, and will rise up against the Lord of the lords, but will be crushed - not with his hand.
26 The vision of the evening and morning that is spoken of is true; but you hide this vision, for it refers to distant times. "
27 And I, Daniel, was exhausted, and was sick for several days; then he got up and began to engage in royal affairs; I was amazed at the vision of the sim and did not understand it.
