24 cThe ten horns are ten kings
Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings.
25 dHe shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
And shall fintend to change times and law.
Then gthe saints shall be given into his hand
hFor a time and times and half a time.
26 ‘But ithe court shall be seated,
And they shall jtake away his dominion,
To consume and destroy it forever.
27 Then the kkingdom and dominion,
And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven,
Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High.
lHis kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
mAnd all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’
