Daniel 11


11:1 Also I, in the first year of Darius the Mede, [even] I,
 stood to confirm and to strengthen him.
11:2 And now will I show thee the truth. Behold, there shall
 stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far
 richer than [they] all: and by his strength through his riches
 he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
11:3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with
 great dominion, and do according to his will.
11:4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken,
 and shall be divided towards the four winds of heaven; and not
 to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled:
 for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside
 those.
11:5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and [one] of his
 princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion;
 his dominion [shall be] a great dominion.
11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves
 together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to
 the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not
 retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his
 arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and
 he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in [these]
 times.
11:7 But out of a branch of her roots shall [one] stand up in
 his estate, who shall come with an army, and shall enter into
 the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against
 them, and shall prevail:
11:8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with
 their princes, [and] with their precious vessels of silver and
 of gold; and he shall continue [more] years than the king of
 the north.
11:9 So the king of the south shall come into [his] kingdom, and
 shall return into his own land.
11:10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a
 multitude of great forces: and [one] shall certainly come, and
 overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be
 stirred up, [even] to his fortress.
11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with wrath, and
 shall come forth and fight with him, [even] with the king of
 the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the
 multitude shall be given into his hand.
11:12 [And] when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart
 shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down [many] ten
 thousands: but he shall not be strengthened [by it].
11:13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set
 forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly
 come after certain years with a great army and with much
 riches.
11:14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the
 king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt
 themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.
11:15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount,
 and take the most fortified cities: and the arms of the south
 shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither [shall
 there be any] strength to withstand.
11:16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his
 own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand
 in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.
11:17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of
 his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do:
 and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her:
 but she shall not stand [on his side], neither be for him.
11:18 After this shall he turn his face to the isles, and shall
 take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the
 reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he
 shall cause [it] to turn upon him.
11:19 Then he shall turn his face towards the fort of his own
 land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.
11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes [in]
 the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be
 destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.
11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom
 they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come
 in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflowed from
 before him, and shall be broken; yes, also the prince of the
 covenant.
11:23 And after the league [made] with him he shall work
 deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with
 a small people.
11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of
 the province; and he shall do [that] which his fathers have not
 done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the
 prey, and spoil, and riches: [yes], and he shall forecast his
 devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
11:25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the
 king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south
 shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty
 army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices
 against him.
11:26 Yes, they that feed of the portion of his provisions shall
 destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall
 down slain.
11:27 And both these kings hearts [shall be] to do mischief, and
 they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper:
 for yet the end [shall be] at the time appointed.
11:28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and
 his heart [shall be] against the holy covenant; and he shall do
 [exploits], and return to his own land.
11:29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come towards
 the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
11:30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore
 he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against
 the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and
 have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.
11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute
 the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily
 [sacrifice], and they shall place the abomination that maketh
 desolate.
11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he
 corrupt by flatteries: but the people that know their God shall
 be strong, and do [exploits].
11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct
 many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by
 captivity, and by spoil, [many] days.
11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be assisted with a
 little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
11:35 And [some] of them of understanding shall fall, to try
 them, and to purge, and to make [them] white, [even] to the
 time of the end: because [it is] yet for a time appointed.
11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall
 exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall
 speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall
 prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that which is
 determined shall be done.
11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the
 desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify
 himself above all.
11:38 But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a
 god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and
 silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange
 god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and
 he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the
 land for gain.
11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south
 push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him
 like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with
 many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall
 overflow and pass over.
11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many
 [countries] shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of
 his hand, [even] Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children
 of Ammon.
11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries:
 and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of
 silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the
 Libyans and the Cushites [shall be] at his steps.
11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall
 trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to
 destroy, and utterly to make away many.
11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between
 the seas in the glorious holy mountain: yet he shall come to
 his end, and none shall help him.
