Daniel 7:9–27

I beheld till ythe thrones were cast down, and zthe Ancient of days did sit, awhose garment was bwhite as snow, and athe hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like cthe fiery flame, and dhis wheels as burning fire. 10 eA fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: fthousand thousands gministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand ggstood before him: hthe judgment was set, and ithe books were opened. 11 I beheld then because of the voice of kthe great words which the horn spake: I beheld even ltill the beast was slain, and lhis body destroyed, and mgiven to the burning flame. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, nthey had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. 13 pI saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like qrthe Son of man rcame with the clouds of heaven, and came to sthe Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And tthere was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, uthat all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: vhis dominion is an everlasting dominion, nwhich shall not pass away, and vhis kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

15 I Daniel wwas grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and xthe visions of my head troubled me. 16 I came near unto yone of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

17 zThese great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. 18 But athe saints of the most High bshall take the kingdom, and bpossess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 19 Then I would know the truth of cthe fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, cexceeding dreadful, cwhose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which cdevoured, cbrake in pieces, and cstamped the residue with his feet; 20 And of cthe ten horns that were in his head, and of dthe other which came up, and dbefore whom three fell; even of dthat horn that had eyes, and da mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 21 I beheld, and the same horn emade war with athe saints, and eprevailed against them; 22 Until fthe Ancient of days came, and gjudgment was given to hthe saints of the most High; and the time came that hithe saints possessed the kingdom. 23 Thus he said, cThe fourth beast shall be cthe fourth kingdom upon earth, cwhich shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and cshall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and cbreak it in pieces. 24 And cthe ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and danother shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and dhe shall subdue three kings. 25 And djhe shall speak kgreat words against lthe most High, and ejshall wear out hthe saints of the most High, and think mto change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand nuntil a time and times and the dividing of time. 26 But othe judgment shall sit, and pthey shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it qunto the end. 27 And hthe kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of hthe saints of the most High, rwhose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all ||dominions shall serve and obey him.
