Daniel 8


8:1 In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision
 appeared to me, [even to] me, Daniel, after that which appeared
 to me at the first.
8:2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that
 I [was] at Shushan [in] the palace, which [is] in the province
 of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river Ulai.
8:3 Then I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, there stood
 before the river a ram which had [two] horns: and the [two]
 horns [were] high; but one [was] higher than the other, and the
 higher came up last.
8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and
 southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither
 [was there any] that could deliver out of his hand; but he did
 according to his will, and became great.
8:5 And as I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the
 west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the
 ground: and the goat [had] a notable horn between his eyes.
8:6 And he came to the ram that had [two] horns, which I had
 seen standing before the river, and ran to him in the fury of
 his power.
8:7 And I saw him come close to the ram, and he was moved with
 anger against him, and smote the ram, and broke his two horns:
 and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he
 cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there
 was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
8:8 Therefore the he-goat became very great: and when he was
 strong, the great horn was broken; and in its stead came up
 four notable ones towards the four winds of heaven.
8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which
 became exceeding great, towards the south, and towards the
 east, and towards the pleasant [land].
8:10 And it grew great, [even] to the host of heaven; and it
 cast down [some] of the host and of the stars to the ground,
 and stamped upon them.
8:11 Yes, he magnified [himself] even to the prince of the host,
 and by him the daily [sacrifice] was taken away, and the place
 of his sanctuary was cast down.
8:12 And a host was given [him] against the daily [sacrifice] by
 reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the
 ground; and it practiced, and prospered.
8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said to
 that certain [saint] who spoke, How long [shall be] the vision
 [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of
 desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be
 trodden under foot?
8:14 And he said to me, Until two thousand and three hundred
 days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
8:15 And it came to pass, when I, [even] I Daniel, had seen the
 vision, and sought for the meaning, then behold, there stood
 before me as the appearance of a man.
8:16 And I heard a man's voice between [the banks of] Ulai,
 which called, and said, Gabriel, make this [man] to understand
 the vision.
8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was
 afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said to me, Understand, O
 son of man: for at the time of the end [shall be] the vision.
8:18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my
 face towards the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.
8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in
 the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the
 end [shall be].
8:20 The ram which thou sawest having [two] horns [are] the
 kings of Media and Persia.
8:21 And the rough goat [is] the king of Grecia: and the great
 horn that [is] between his eyes [is] the first king.
8:22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up in its place,
 four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his
 power.
8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the
 transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce
 countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power:
 and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and
 practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper
 in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and
 by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the
 Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was
 told [is] true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it
 [shall be] for many days.
8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick [certain] days;
 afterward I rose, and did the king's business; and I was
 astonished at the vision, but none understood [it].
