**In the third year of the reign of king aBelshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me bat the first. And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at cShushan in cdthe palace, which is in the province of eElam; and fI saw in a vision, and I was by gthe river of hUlai. Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before gthe river ia ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last. I saw the ram kpushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no lbeasts mmight stand before him, mneither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he ndid according to his will, and became great. And as I was considering, behold, oan he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and ||ptouched not the ground: and the goat had qa notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before gthe river, and rran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and she was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and mthere was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down tto the ground, and tstamped upon him: and mthere was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. Therefore othe he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn uwas broken; and for it came up vfour notable ones toward wthe four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth xa little horn, which waxed exceeding great, ytoward the south, and ztoward the east, and toward athe pleasant land. 10 And bit waxed great, even ||cto the host of heaven; and dit cast down some of the host and of the stars eto the ground, and estamped upon them. 11 Yea, fhe magnified himself even ||to gthe prince of the host, and ||by him hithe daily sacrifice hwas taken away, and jthe place of his sanctuary kwas cast down. 12 And ||lan host was given him against ithe daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and kmit cast down nthe truth to the ground; and it opractised, and oprospered. 13 Then I heard pone saint speaking, and qanother saint said unto ||that certain saint which spake, rHow long shall be the vision concerning ithe daily sacrifice, and rrthe transgression ||of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and sthe host tto be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, uUnto two thousand and three hundred days; uthen shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
