Daniel 7:17–27

17 ‘These great beasts, which are four in number, are four kings who will arise from the earth.

18 ‘But the 1asaints of the Highest One will breceive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, 2for all ages to come.’

19 “Then I desired to know the 1exact meaning of the afourth beast, which was different from all 2the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its claws of bronze, and which devoured, crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet,

20 and the meaning of the ten horns that were on its head and the other horn which came up, and before which three of them fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth uttering great boasts and 1which was larger in appearance than its associates.

21 “I kept looking, and that horn was awaging war with the 1saints and overpowering them

22 until the Ancient of Days came and ajudgment was 1passed in favor of the 2saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the 2saints took possession of the kingdom.

23 “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.

24 ‘As for the aten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.

25 ‘He will aspeak 1out against the bMost High and cwear down the 2saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make dalterations in times and in law; and 3they will be given into his hand for a 4etime, 4times, and half a 4time.

26 ‘But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be ataken away, 1annihilated and destroyed 2forever.

27 ‘Then the 1asovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the 2saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an beverlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will cserve and obey Him.’
