Daniel 11:36–45

36 “Then the king will ado as he pleases, and he will exalt and bmagnify himself above every god and will cspeak 1monstrous things against the dGod of gods; and he will prosper until the eindignation is finished, for that which is fdecreed will be done.

37 “He will show no regard for the 1gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all.

38 “But 1instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures.

39 “He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to 1those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.

40 “At the aend time the bking of the South will collide with him, and the cking of the North will dstorm against him with chariots, with horsemen and with many ships; and he will enter countries, eoverflow them and pass through.

41 “He will also enter the 1aBeautiful Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, bMoab and the foremost of the sons of cAmmon.

42 “Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape.

43 “But he will 1gain control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and aLibyans and bEthiopians will follow at his 2heels.

44 “But rumors from the East and from the North will disturb him, and he will go forth with great wrath to destroy and 1annihilate many.

45 “He will pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful aHoly Mountain; yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.
