Dan 1:1 In the third year of the reign of YahuYaqiym, sovereign of Yahudah, Nabukadnatsar, sovereign of Babal came to Yarushalam and besieged it.
Dan 1:2 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gave YahuYaqiym sovereign of Yahudah into his hand, with some of the utensils of the House of Alahiym, which he brought to the land of Shan'aur to the house of his mighty one. And he brought the utensils into the treasure house of his mighty one.
Dan 1:3 And the sovereign said to Ashphanaz, the chief of his eunuchs, to bring some of the children of Yashara'Al and some of the sovereign’s descendants and some of the nobles,
Dan 1:4 young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, having insight in all wisdom, having knowledge and understanding learning, capable to stand in the sovereign’s palace, and to teach them the writing and speech of the Kashdiym.
Dan 1:5 And the sovereign appointed for them a daily ration of the sovereign’s food and of the wine which he drank, and three years of training for them, so that at the end thereof they should stand before the sovereign.
Dan 1:6 Now among them were from the sons of Yahudah: Daniy'Al, ChananYahu, Misha’Al, and AuzarYahu.
Dan 1:7 And the chief of the eunuchs gave them names. For he called Daniy'Al, Baltashatsar; and ChananYahu, Shadrak; and Misha’Al, Miyshak; and AuzarYahu, Aubad-Nagu.
Dan 1:8 But Daniy'Al laid it upon his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the sovereign’s food, nor with the wine which he drank. So he asked permission from the chief of the eunuchs not to defile himself.
Dan 1:9 And Alahiym granted Daniy'Al kindness and compassion from the chief of the eunuchs,
Dan 1:10 but the chief of the eunuchs said to Daniy'Al, “I fear my master the sovereign, who has appointed your food and drink. For why should he see your faces looking worse than the young men who are your age? Then you would make my head guilty before the sovereign!”
Dan 1:11 And Daniy'Al said to the overseer whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniy'Al, ChananYahu, Misha’Al, and AuzarYahu,
Dan 1:12 “Please try your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.
Dan 1:13 “Then let our appearances be examined before you, and the appearances of the young men who eat the portion of the sovereign’s food. And do with your servants as you see fit.”
Dan 1:14 And he listened to them in this matter, and tried them ten days.
Dan 1:15 And at the end of ten days their appearances looked better and fatter in flesh than all the young men who ate the portion of the sovereign’s food.
Dan 1:16 And it came to be that the overseer took away their portion of food and the wine they were to drink, and gave them vegetables.
Dan 1:17 As for these four young men, Alah gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom. And Daniy'Al had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Dan 1:18 And at the end of the days, when the sovereign had said that they should be brought in, the chief of the eunuchs brought them in before Nabukadnatsar.
Dan 1:19 And the sovereign spoke with them, and none among them all were found like Daniy'Al, ChananYahu, Misha’Al, and AuzarYahu, so they stood before the sovereign.
Dan 1:20 And in any word of wisdom and understanding about which the sovereign examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians, the astrologers, who were in all his reign.
Dan 1:21 And Daniy'Al continued until the first year of Sovereign Kurash.
Dan 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nabukadnatsar, Nabukadnatsar had dreams. And his spirit was so troubled that his sleep left him.
Dan 2:2 And the sovereign gave orders to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the practicers of witchcraft, and the Kashdiym to declare to the sovereign his dreams. So they came and stood before the sovereign.
Dan 2:3 And the sovereign said to them, “I have had a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream.”
Dan 2:4 And the Kashdiym spoke to the sovereign in Aramaic, “O sovereign, live forever! Relate the dream to your servants, and we shall reveal the interpretation.”
Dan 2:5 The sovereign answered and said to the Kashdiya, “My decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream and its interpretation to me, your limbs shall be taken from you, and your houses made dunghills.
Dan 2:6 “But if you reveal the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive gifts, and rewards, and great esteem from me. So reveal to me the dream and its interpretation.”
Dan 2:7 They answered again and said, “Let the sovereign relate to his servants the dream, and we shall reveal its interpretation.”
Dan 2:8 The sovereign answered and said, “I know for certain that you would gain time, because you see that my decision is firm:
Dan 2:9 “If you do not make known the dream to me, there is only one decree for you! For you have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me till the time has changed. So relate the dream to me, then I shall know that you shall reveal its interpretation for me.”
Dan 2:10 The Kashdiya answered the sovereign, and said, “There is no one on earth who is able to reveal the matter of the sovereign. Because no sovereign, master, or ruler has ever asked a matter like this of any magician, or astrologer, or Kashdiy.
Dan 2:11 “And the matter that the sovereign is asking is difficult, and there is no other who is able to reveal it to the sovereign except the alahin, whose dwelling is not with flesh.”
Dan 2:12 Because of this the sovereign was enraged and very wroth, and gave orders to destroy all the wise ones of Babal.
Dan 2:13 So the decree went out, and they began killing the wise ones. And they sought Daniy'Al and his companions, to kill them.
Dan 2:14 Then with counsel and wisdom Daniy'Al answered Ariyuk, the chief of the sovereign’s guard, who had gone out to kill the wise ones of Babal –
Dan 2:15 he answered and said to Ariyuk the sovereign’s officer, “Why is the decree from the sovereign so urgent?” So Ariyuk made the decision known to Daniy'Al.
Dan 2:16 And Daniy'Al went in and asked the sovereign to give him time, and he would show the sovereign the interpretation.
Dan 2:17 Then Daniy'Al went to his house, and made the decision known to ChananYahu, Misha’Al, and AuzarYahu, his companions,
Dan 2:18 to seek compassion from the Alah of the Shamiya concerning this secret, so that Daniy'Al and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise ones of Babal.
Dan 2:19 Then the secret was revealed to Daniy'Al in a night vision, and Daniy'Al blessed the Alah of the Shamiya.
Dan 2:20 Daniy'Al responded and said, “Blessed be the Name of Alaha forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His.
Dan 2:21 “And He changes the times and the seasons. He removes sovereigns and raises up sovereigns. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who possess understanding.
Dan 2:22 “He reveals deep and secret matters. He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
Dan 2:23 “I thank You and praise You, O Alah of my fathers. You have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of You, for You have made known to us the sovereign’s matter.”
Dan 2:24 So Daniy'Al went to Ariyuk, whom the sovereign had appointed to destroy the wise ones of Babal. He went and said this to him, “Do not destroy the wise ones of Babal. Bring me in before the sovereign, and I shall show the interpretation to the sovereign.”
Dan 2:25 Then Ariyuk brought Daniy'Al in a hurry before the sovereign, and said thus to him, “I have found a man among the sons of the exile of Yahudah, who does make known to the sovereign the interpretation.”
Dan 2:26 The sovereign answered and said to Daniy'Al, whose name was Baltashatsar, “Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen, and its interpretation?”
Dan 2:27 Daniy'Al answered before the sovereign, and said, “The secret which the sovereign is asking – the wise ones, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers are unable to show it to the sovereign.
Dan 2:28 “But there is an Alah in the Shamiya who reveals secrets, and He has made known to Sovereign Nabukadnatsar what is to be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, were these:
Dan 2:29 “As for you, O sovereign, on your bed your thoughts came up: What is going to take place after this. And He who reveals secrets has made known to you what shall be after this.
Dan 2:30 “As for me, this secret has not been revealed to me because I have more wisdom than anyone living, but for our sakes who make known the interpretation to the sovereign, and that you should know the thoughts of your heart.
Dan 2:31 “You, O sovereign, were looking on, and saw a great image! This great image, and its brightness excellent, was standing before you, and its form was awesome.
Dan 2:32 “This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze,
Dan 2:33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
Dan 2:34 “You were looking on, until a stone was cut out without hands, and it smote the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.
Dan 2:35 “Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing-floors. And the wind took them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled all the earth.
Dan 2:36 “This is the dream, and its interpretation we declare before the sovereign.
Dan 2:37 “You, O sovereign, are a sovereign of sovereigns. For the Alah of the Shamiya has given you a reign, power, and strength, and preciousness,
Dan 2:38 and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the Shamiya, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are the head of gold.
Dan 2:39 “And after you rises up another reign lower than yours, and another third reign of bronze that rules over all the earth.
Dan 2:40 “And the fourth reign is as strong as iron, because iron crushes and shatters all. So, like iron that breaks in pieces, it crushes and breaks all these.
Dan 2:41 “Yet, as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the reign is to be divided. But some of the strength of the iron is to be in it, because you saw the iron mixed with muddy clay.
Dan 2:42 “And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the reign is partly strong and partly brittle.
Dan 2:43 “And as you saw iron mixed with muddy clay, they are mixing themselves with the seed of men, but they are not clinging to each other, even as iron does not mix with clay.
Dan 2:44 “And in the days of these sovereigns the Alah of the Shamiya shall set up a reign which shall never be destroyed, nor the reign pass on to other people – it crushes and puts to an end all these reigns, and it shall stand forever.
Dan 2:45 “Because you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great Alah has made known to the sovereign what shall be after this. And the dream is true, and its interpretation is trustworthy.”
Dan 2:46 Then Sovereign Nabukadnatsar fell on his face, and did obeisance before Daniy'Al, and gave orders to present to him an offering and incense.
Dan 2:47 The sovereign answered Daniy'Al, and said, “Truly your Alah is the Alah of alahin, the Master of sovereigns, and a revealer of secrets, since you were able to reveal this secret.”
Dan 2:48 Then the sovereign made Daniy'Al great and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over all the province of Babal, and chief of the nobles, over all the wise ones of Babal.
Dan 2:49 And Daniy'Al asked of the sovereign, and he set Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu over the work of the province of Babal, and Daniy'Al in the gate of the sovereign.
Dan 3:1 Nabukadnatsar the sovereign made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and its width six cubits. He set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babal.
Dan 3:2 And Sovereign Nabukadnatsar sent word to gather together the viceroys, the nobles, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Sovereign Nabukadnatsar had set up.
Dan 3:3 Then the viceroys, the nobles, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces gathered together for the dedication of the image that Sovereign Nabukadnatsar had set up. And they stood before the image that Nabukadnatsar had set up.
Dan 3:4 Then a herald loudly proclaimed, “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages,
Dan 3:5 that as soon as you hear the sound of the horn, the flute, the zither, the lyre, the harp, the pipes, and all kinds of instruments, you shall fall down and do obeisance to the gold image that Sovereign Nabukadnatsar has set up.
Dan 3:6 “And whoever does not fall down and do obeisance is immediately thrown into the midst of a burning furnace of fire.”
Dan 3:7 So as soon as all the people heard the sound of the horn, the flute, the zither, the lyre, the harp, all kinds of instruments, all the people, nations, and languages fell down and did obeisance to the gold image that Sovereign Nabukadnatsar had set up.
Dan 3:8 Thereupon, at that time, certain Kashdain came forward and accused the Yahudiya.
Dan 3:9 They spoke and said to Sovereign Nabukadnatsar, “O sovereign, live forever!
Dan 3:10 “You, O sovereign, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, the flute, the zither, the lyre, the harp, the pipes, and all kinds of instruments, shall fall down and do obeisance to the gold image,
Dan 3:11 and whoever does not fall down and do obeisance is thrown into the midst of a burning furnace of fire.
Dan 3:12 “There are certain Yahudain whom you have set over the work of the province of Babal: Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu. These men, O sovereign, pay no heed to you. They do not serve your alah, and they are not doing obeisance to the gold image which you have set up.”
Dan 3:13 Then Nabukadnatsar, in rage and wrath, gave orders to bring Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu. Then they brought these men before the sovereign.
Dan 3:14 Nabukadnatsar spoke and said to them, “Is it true, Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, that you do not serve my alah, and you do not do obeisance to the gold image which I have set up?
Dan 3:15 “Now if you are ready when you hear the sound of the horn, the flute, the zither, the lyre, the harp, the pipes, and all kinds of instruments, and you fall down and do obeisance to the image which I have made, good! But if you do not do obeisance, you are immediately thrown into the midst of a burning furnace of fire. And who is the Alah who does deliver you from my hands?”
Dan 3:16 Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu answered and said to the sovereign, “O Nabukadnatsar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
Dan 3:17 “For if so, our Alah whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning furnace of fire and from your hand, O sovereign – He does deliver!
Dan 3:18 “But if not, let it be known to you, O sovereign, that we do not serve your alah, nor do we do obeisance to the gold image which you have set up.”
Dan 3:19 Then Nabukadnatsar was filled with wrath, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu. He responded and gave orders that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usual to heat it.
Dan 3:20 And he commanded some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, and throw them into the burning furnace of fire.
Dan 3:21 So these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, and their turbans, and their other garments, and were thrown into the midst of the burning furnace of fire.
Dan 3:22 Thereupon, because the sovereign’s order was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu.
Dan 3:23 And these three men, Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, fell down bound into the midst of the burning furnace of fire.
Dan 3:24 Then Sovereign Nabukadnatsar was amazed, and stood up in haste and spoke and said to his counselors, “Did we not throw three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the sovereign, “Certainly, O sovereign.”
Dan 3:25 He answered and said, “Look! I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire. And they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of Alah.”
Dan 3:26 Then Nabukadnatsar went near the mouth of the burning furnace of fire. He spoke and said, “Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, servants of the Most High Alah, come out, and come here.” Then Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu came from the midst of the fire.
Dan 3:27 And the viceroys, the nobles, and the governors, and the sovereign’s counselors gathered together, seeing these men on whose bodies the fire had no power, and the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments changed, nor did the smell of fire come on them.
Dan 3:28 Nabukadnatsar responded and said, “Blessed be the Alah of Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, who sent His Messenger and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and changed the sovereign’s order, and gave up their bodies, that they should not serve nor do obeisance to any alah except their own Alah!
Dan 3:29 “Therefore I make a decree that whoever of any people, nation, or language who speaks any wrong against the Alah of Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu, his limbs shall be taken, and his house made a dunghill, because there is no other Alah who is able to deliver like this.”
Dan 3:30 Then the sovereign promoted Shadrak, Miyshak, and Aubad-Nagu in the province of Babal.
Dan 4:1 Nabukadnatsar the sovereign, to all peoples, nations and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be increased to you.
Dan 4:2 I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders which the Most High Alah has worked for me.
Dan 4:3 How great are His signs, and how mighty His wonders! His reign is an everlasting reign, and His rulership is from generation to generation.
Dan 4:4 I, Nabukadnatsar, was at rest in my house, and prospering in my palace.
Dan 4:5 I saw a dream and it frightened me, and the thoughts on my bed and the visions of my head alarmed me.
Dan 4:6 So I issued a decree to bring in all the wise ones of Babal before me, to make known to me the interpretation of the dream.
Dan 4:7 So the magicians, the astrologers, the Kashdiya, and the soothsayers came in, and I related the dream to them, but its interpretation they did not make known to me.
Dan 4:8 And at last Daniy'Al, whose name is Baltashatsar, according to the name of my alah, came before me. In him is the Spirit of the Set-apart Alahin. So I related the dream to him, saying,
Dan 4:9 “Baltashatsar, chief of the magicians, because I know that the Spirit of the Set-apart Alahin is in you, and no secret is too difficult for you, explain to me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and its interpretation.
Dan 4:10 “Now the visions of my head on my bed were these: I looked, and saw a tree in the midst of the earth, and its height great.
Dan 4:11 “The tree became great and strong, and its height reached to the Shamiya, and it was visible to the ends of all the earth.
Dan 4:12 “Its leaves were lovely, and its fruit plenty, and in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, and the birds of the Shamiya dwelt in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it.
Dan 4:13 “In the visions of my head on my bed, I looked and saw a Watcher, even a set-apart one, coming down from the Shamiya.
Dan 4:14 “He cried aloud and said this, ‘Hew down the tree and cut off its branches, strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the beasts flee from under it, and the birds from its branches.
Dan 4:15 ‘But leave the stump of its roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and bronze, in the tender grass of the field. And let it be wet with the dew of the Shamiya, and let his portion be with the beasts on the grass of the earth.
Dan 4:16 ‘Let his heart be changed from man’s, let him be given the heart of a beast, and seven times pass over him.
Dan 4:17 ‘This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the command by the word of the set-apart ones, so that the living know that the Most High is ruler in the reign of men, and gives it to whomever He wishes, and sets over it the lowest of men.’
Dan 4:18 “This dream have I seen, I, Sovereign Nabukadnatsar. And you, Baltashatsar, reveal its interpretation, since all the wise ones of my reign are unable to make known to me the interpretation. But you are able, for the Spirit of the Set-apart Alahin is in you.”
Dan 4:19 Then Daniy'Al, whose name was Baltashatsar, was stunned for a short time, and his thoughts alarmed him. The sovereign responded and said, “Baltashatsar, do not let the dream or its interpretation alarm you.” Baltashatsar answered and said, “My master, the dream is to those who hate you, and its interpretation to your enemies!
Dan 4:20 “The tree you saw, which became great and strong, whose height reached to the Shamiya and was visible to all the earth,
Dan 4:21 whose leaves were lovely and its fruit plenty, and in it was food for all, under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and on whose branches the birds of the Shamiya sat –
Dan 4:22 it is you, O sovereign, for you have become great and strong. And your greatness has grown, and has reached to the Shamiya and your rulership to the end of the earth.
Dan 4:23 “And as the sovereign saw a Watcher, even a set-apart one, coming down from the Shamiya, and he said, ‘Hew down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump of its roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and bronze in the tender grass of the field. And let it be wet with the dew of the Shamiya, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him’ –
Dan 4:24 this is the interpretation, O sovereign, and this is the decree of the Most High, which has come upon my master the sovereign:
Dan 4:25 “That you are going to be driven away from men, and your dwelling be with the beasts of the field, and you be given grass to eat like oxen, and you be wetted with the dew of the Shamiya, and seven times pass over you, till you know that the Most High is ruler in the reign of men, and that He gives it to whomever He wishes.
Dan 4:26 “And they that gave the command to leave the stump of its roots of the tree: your reign remains yours, from the time you come to know that the Shamiya are ruling.
Dan 4:27 “Therefore, O sovereign, let my counsel be acceptable to you, and break off your sins by righteousness, and your crookednesses by showing favor to the poor – your prosperity might be extended.”
Dan 4:28 All this came upon Sovereign Nabukadnatsar.
Dan 4:29 At the end of the twelve months he was walking about the palace of the reign of Babal.
Dan 4:30 The sovereign spoke and said, “Is not this great Babal, which I myself have built, for the house of the reign, by the might of my power and for the esteem of my splendor?”
Dan 4:31 The word was still in the sovereign’s mouth, when a voice fell from the Shamiya, “Sovereign Nabukadnatsar, to you it is spoken: the reign has been taken away from you,
Dan 4:32 and you are driven away from men, and your dwelling is to be with the beasts of the field. You are given grass to eat like oxen, and seven seasons shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High is ruler in the reign of men, and He gives it to whomever He wishes.”
Dan 4:33 In that hour the word was executed on Nabukadnatsar, and he was driven from men and he ate grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of the Shamiya till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.
Dan 4:34 And at the end of the days I, Nabukadnatsar, lifted my eyes to the Shamiya, and my understanding returned to me. And I blessed the Most High and praised and made Him great who lives forever, whose rule is an everlasting rule, and His reign is from generation to generation.
Dan 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are of no account, and He does as He wishes with the host of the Shamiya and among the inhabitants of the earth. And there is none to strike against His hand or say to Him, “What have You done?”
Dan 4:36 At the same time my understanding returned to me, and for the preciousness of my reign, my esteem and splendor were returning to me. And my counselors and nobles sought me out, and I was re-established to my reign, and excellent greatness was added to me.
Dan 4:37 Now I, Nabukadnatsar, am praising and exalting and esteeming the Sovereign of the Shamiya, for all His works are truth, and His ways right. And those who walk in pride He is able to humble.
Dan 5:1 Baltashatsar the sovereign made a great feast for a thousand of his great men, and drank wine in the presence of the thousand.
Dan 5:2 While tasting the wine, Baltashatsar gave orders to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nabukadnatsar had taken from the Hikal which had been in Yarushalam, that the sovereign and his great men, his wives, and his concubines could drink from them.
Dan 5:3 Then they brought the gold vessels that had been taken from the Hikal of the House of Alaha which had been in Yarushalam. And the sovereign and his great men, his wives, and his concubines drank out of them.
Dan 5:4 They drank wine, and praised the alahiy of gold, and of silver, of bronze, of iron, of wood and of stone.
Dan 5:5 At that moment the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the sovereign’s palace. And the sovereign saw the part of the hand that wrote.
Dan 5:6 Then the sovereign’s color changed, and his thoughts alarmed him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other.
Dan 5:7 The sovereign called loudly to bring in the astrologers, the Kashdiya, and the soothsayers. The sovereign spoke and said to the wise ones of Babal, “Whoever reads this writing, and shows me its interpretation, is robed in purple and has a chain of gold around his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the reign.”
Dan 5:8 So all the sovereign’s wise ones came, but they were unable to read the writing, or to make known its interpretation to the sovereign.
Dan 5:9 Then Sovereign Baltashatsar was greatly alarmed, and his color changed, and his great men were puzzled.
Dan 5:10 The sovereigness, because of the words of the sovereign and his great men, came to the banquet hall. And the sovereigness spoke and said, “O sovereign, live forever! Do not let your thoughts alarm you, nor let your color change.
Dan 5:11 “There is a man in your reign in whom is the Spirit of the Set-apart Alahin. And in the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the alahin, were found in him. And Sovereign Nabukadnatsar your father, your father the sovereign, made him chief of the magicians, astrologers, Kashdiym, and soothsayers,
Dan 5:12 because an excellent spirit, knowledge and understanding, interpreting dreams, and explaining riddles, and solving difficult problems were found in this Daniy'Al, whom the sovereign named Baltashatsar. Now let Daniy'Al be called, and let him show the interpretation.”
Dan 5:13 So Daniy'Al was brought in before the sovereign. The sovereign spoke and said to Daniy'Al, “Are you that Daniy'Al who is one of the sons of the exile from Yahudah, whom my father the sovereign brought from Yahudah?
Dan 5:14 “I have heard of you, that the Spirit of Alahin is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.
Dan 5:15 “And the wise ones, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing and make known to me its interpretation, but they were unable to show the interpretation of the word.
Dan 5:16 “And I myself have heard of you, that you are able to give interpretations and to solve difficult problems. Now if you are able to read the writing and make known its interpretation to me, you are to be robed in purple and have a chain of gold around your neck, and shall be the third ruler in the reign.”
Dan 5:17 Then Daniy'Al answered and said before the sovereign, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another. Yet I shall read the writing to the sovereign, and make known the interpretation to him.
Dan 5:18 “O sovereign, the Auliya Alaha gave Nabukadnatsar your father a reign and greatness, and preciousness and esteem.
Dan 5:19 “And because of the greatness which He gave him, all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him. Whomever he wished he executed, and whomever he wished he kept alive, and whomever he wished he raised up, and whomever he wished he made low.
Dan 5:20 “But when his heart was lifted up, and his spirit was so strong as to act proudly, he was put down from his throne of reign, and they took his preciousness from him.
Dan 5:21 “Then he was driven from the sons of men, and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys. He was given grass to eat like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of the Shamiya, till he knew that Auliya Alaha is ruler in the reign of men, and He sets up over it whomever He wishes.
Dan 5:22 “And you his son, Baltashatsar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this.
Dan 5:23 “And you have lifted yourself up against the Master of the Shamiya. And they brought before you the vessels of His house, and you and your great men, your wives and your concubines, have been drinking wine from them. And you have praised the alahiy of silver, and of gold, of bronze, of iron, of wood, and of stone, which neither see nor hear nor know. But the Alaha who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not made great.
Dan 5:24 “Then the part of the hand was sent from Him, and this writing was inscribed.
Dan 5:25 “And this is the writing that was inscribed: MANA, MANA, TAQAL, UPHARSIN.
Dan 5:26 “This is the interpretation of each word: MANA – Alaha has numbered your reign, and put an end to it.
Dan 5:27 “TAQAL – You have been weighed on the scales, and found lacking.
Dan 5:28 “PHARSA – Your reign has been divided, and given to the Madiy and Pharsa.”
Dan 5:29 Then Baltashatsar gave orders, and they robed Daniy'Al in purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and they proclaimed concerning him that he is the third ruler in the reign.
Dan 5:30 In that night Baltashatsar, sovereign of the Kashdiya, was slain.
Dan 5:31 And Dariush the Madiya took over the reign, being about sixty-two years old.
Dan 6:1 It pleased Dariush to appoint over the reign one hundred and twenty viceroys, to be over all the reign,
Dan 6:2 and over them three governors, of whom Daniy'Al was one, so that these viceroys should give account to them, and the sovereign suffer no loss.
Dan 6:3 Then this Daniy'Al distinguished himself above the governors and viceroys, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the sovereign planned to appoint him over all the reign.
Dan 6:4 Then the governors and viceroys sought to find occasion against Daniy'Al concerning the reign. But they were unable to find occasion or corruption, because he was steadfast, and no negligence or corruption was found in him.
Dan 6:5 Then these men said, “We shall not find any occasion against this Daniy'Al unless we find it against him concerning the law of his Alahah.”
Dan 6:6 Then these governors and viceroys tumultuously gathered before the sovereign, and said this to him, “Sovereign Dariush, live forever!
Dan 6:7 “All the governors of the reign, the nobles and viceroys, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal decree and to make a strong interdict, that whoever petitions any alah or man for thirty days, except you, O sovereign, is thrown into the den of lions.
Dan 6:8 “Now, O sovereign, establish the interdict and sign the writing, so that it is not to be changed, according to the law of the Madiy and Pharsa, which does not pass away.”
Dan 6:9 So Sovereign Dariush signed the written interdict.
Dan 6:10 And Daniy'Al, when he knew that the writing was signed, went home and in his upper room with his windows open toward Yarushalam he knelt down on his knees three times a day, and prayed and gave thanks before his Alahah, as he had done before.
Dan 6:11 Then these men tumultuously gathered and found Daniy'Al praying and entreating before his Alahah.
Dan 6:12 Then they approached the sovereign, and spoke concerning the sovereign’s interdict, “Have you not signed a interdict that every man who petitions any alah or man within thirty days, except you, O sovereign, is thrown into the den of lions?” The sovereign answered and said, “The word is certain, according to the law of the Madiy and Pharsa, which does not pass away.”
Dan 6:13 Then they answered and said before the sovereign, “Daniy'Al, who is one of the sons of the exile from Yahudah, pays no heed to you, O sovereign, nor for the interdict that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.”
Dan 6:14 Then the sovereign, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniy'Al to deliver him. And he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Dan 6:15 Then these men tumultuously gathered before the sovereign, and said to the sovereign, “Know, O sovereign, that it is the law of the Madiy and Pharsa that any interdict or decree which the sovereign establishes is not to be changed.”
Dan 6:16 Then the sovereign gave orders, and they brought Daniy'Al and threw him into the den of lions. But the sovereign spoke and said to Daniy'Al, “Your Alah, whom you serve continually, He Himself delivers you.”
Dan 6:17 And a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the sovereign sealed it with his own signet and with the signets of his great men, that the situation concerning Daniy'Al might not be changed.
Dan 6:18 And the sovereign went to his palace and spent the night fasting. And no entertainment was brought before him, and his sleep fled from him.
Dan 6:19 Then the sovereign rose up very early in the morning and hurried to the den of lions.
Dan 6:20 And when he came to the den, he called with a grieved voice to Daniy'Al. The sovereign spoke and said to Daniy'Al, “Daniy'Al, servant of the living Alaha, has your Alah, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
Dan 6:21 Then Daniy'Al said to the sovereign, “O sovereign, live forever!
Dan 6:22 “My Alah has sent His messenger and has shut the lions’ mouths, and they did not harm me, because I was found innocent before Him. And also before you, O sovereign, I have done no harm.”
Dan 6:23 Then the sovereign was very glad and gave orders that Daniy'Al be taken up out of the den. And Daniy'Al was taken up out of the den, and no harm was found on him, because he trusted in his Alahah.
Dan 6:24 And the sovereign gave orders and they brought those men who had accused Daniy'Al, and they threw them, their children, and their wives into the den of lions. And the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they reached the floor of the den.
Dan 6:25 Then Sovereign Dariush wrote to all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: “Peace be increased to you.
Dan 6:26 “From before me is made a decree that throughout every rule of my reign men are to tremble and fear before the Alahah of Daniy'Al, for He is the living Alaha, and steadfast forever. And His reign is one which is not destroyed, and His rule is unto the end.
Dan 6:27 “He delivers and rescues, and He works signs and wonders in the Shamiya and on earth, for He has delivered Daniy'Al from the power of the lions.”
Dan 6:28 And this Daniy'Al prospered in the reign of Dariush and in the reign of Kurash the Pharsia.
Dan 7:1 In the first year of Baltashatsar sovereign of Babal, Daniy'Al had a dream and visions of his head on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, giving a summary of the matters.
Dan 7:2 Daniy'Al spoke and said, “I was looking in my vision by night and saw the four winds of the Shamiya stirring up the Great Sea.
Dan 7:3 “And four great beasts came up from the sea, different from one another.
Dan 7:4 “The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I was looking until its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and it was given a man’s heart.
Dan 7:5 “And see, another beast, a second, like a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said this to it, ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
Dan 7:6 “After this I looked and saw another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and rule was given to it.
Dan 7:7 “After this I looked in the night visions and saw a fourth beast, fearsome and burly, exceedingly strong. And it had great iron teeth. It devoured and crushed, and trampled down the rest with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
Dan 7:8 “I was thinking about the horns, then saw another horn, a little one, coming up among them, and three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots before it. And see, eyes like the eyes of a man were in this horn, and a mouth speaking great words.
Dan 7:9 “I was looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like clean wool, His throne was flames of fire, its wheels burning fire.
Dan 7:10 “A stream of fire was flowing and coming forth from His presence, and a thousand thousands served Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him, the Judge was seated, and the books were opened.
Dan 7:11 “I was looking. Then, because of the sound of the great words which the horn was speaking, I was looking until the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning fire,
Dan 7:12 and the rest of the beasts had their rule taken away. But a lengthening of life was given to them, for a season and a time.
Dan 7:13 “I was looking in the night visions and saw One like the Son of Anash, coming with the clouds of the Shamiya! And He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
Dan 7:14 “And to Him was given rulership and preciousness and a reign, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His rule is an everlasting rule which shall not pass away, and His reign that which shall not be destroyed.
Dan 7:15 “As for me, Daniy'Al, my spirit was pierced within my body, and the visions of my head alarmed me.
Dan 7:16 “I drew near to one of those who stood by, and asked him the certainty of all this. And he spoke to me and made known to me the interpretation of the matters:
Dan 7:17 ‘These great beasts, which are four, are four sovereigns which rise up from the earth.
Dan 7:18 ‘Then the set-apart ones of the Most High shall receive the reign, and possess the reign forever, even forever and ever.’
Dan 7:19 “Then I desired for certainty concerning the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, very fearsome, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, crushed, and trampled down the rest with its feet,
Dan 7:20 and concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and of the other horn that came up, before which three fell – this horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke great words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.
Dan 7:21 “I was looking, and this horn was fighting against the set-apart ones, and was prevailing against them,
Dan 7:22 until the Ancient of Days came, and right-ruling was given to the set-apart ones of the Most High, and the time came and the set-apart ones took possession of the reign.
Dan 7:23 “This is what he said, ‘The fourth beast is the fourth reign on earth, which is different from all other reigns, and it devours all the earth, tramples it down and crushes it.
Dan 7:24 ‘And the ten horns are ten sovereigns from this reign. They shall rise, and another shall rise after them, and it is different from the first ones, and it humbles three sovereigns,
Dan 7:25 and it speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High, and it intends to change appointed times and law, and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time.
Dan 7:26 ‘But the Judgement shall sit, and they shall take away its rule, to cut off and to destroy, until the end.
Dan 7:27 ‘And the reign, and the rulership, and the greatness of the reigns under all the Shamiya, shall be given to the people, the set-apart ones of the Most High. His reign is an everlasting reign, and all rulerships shall serve and obey Him.’
Dan 7:28 “This is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniy'Al, my thoughts greatly alarmed me, and my color changed. And I kept the matter in my heart.”
Dan 8:1 In the third year of the reign of Baltashatsar the sovereign, a vision appeared to me, Daniy'Al, after the one that appeared to me the first time.
Dan 8:2 And I looked in the vision, and it came to be while I was looking, that I was in the citadel of Shushan, which is in the province of Auilam. And I looked in the vision, and I was by the River A'uliy.
Dan 8:3 And I lifted my eyes and looked and saw a ram standing beside the river, and it had two horns, and the two horns were high. And the one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.
Dan 8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward, so that no beast could stand before him, and there was no one to deliver from his hand, while he did as he pleased and became great.
Dan 8:5 And I was observing and saw a male goat came from the west, over the surface of all the earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.
Dan 8:6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him in the rage of his power.
Dan 8:7 And I saw him come close to the ram, and he became embittered against him, and smote the ram, and broke his two horns. And there was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he threw him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one to deliver the ram from his hand.
Dan 8:8 And the male goat became very great. But when he was strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four conspicuous ones came up toward the four winds of the shamiym.
Dan 8:9 And from one of them came a little horn which became exceedingly great toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the Splendid Land.
Dan 8:10 And it became great, up to the host of the shamiym. And it caused some of the host and some of the stars to fall to the earth, and trampled them down.
Dan 8:11 It even exalted itself as high as the Prince of the host. And it took that which is continual away from Him, and threw down the foundation of His set-apart place.
Dan 8:12 And because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose that which is continual. And it threw the truth down to the ground, and it acted and prospered.
Dan 8:13 Then I heard a certain set-apart one speaking. And another set-apart one said to that certain one who was speaking, “Till when is the vision, concerning that which is continual, and the transgression that lays waste, to make both the set-apart place and the host to be trampled under foot?”
Dan 8:14 And he said to me, “For two thousand three hundred days, then that which is set-apart shall be made right.”
Dan 8:15 And it came to be, when I, Daniy'Al, had seen the vision, that I sought understanding, and see, before me stood one having the appearance of a mighty man.
Dan 8:16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of A'uliy, who called, and said, “Gabriy'Al, make this man understand the vision.”
Dan 8:17 He then came near where I stood. And when he came I feared and I fell on my face, but he said to me, “Understand, son of man, for the vision is for the time of the end.”
Dan 8:18 And, as he was speaking with me, I fell stunned upon my face to the ground, but he touched me, and made me stand up straight,
Dan 8:19 and said, “Look, I am making known to you what shall take place in the latter time of the wrath, for at the appointed time shall be the end.
Dan 8:20 “The ram which you saw, having two horns, are the sovereigns of Madiy and Pharsa.
Dan 8:21 “And the male goat is the sovereign of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first sovereign.
Dan 8:22 “And that it was broken and four stood up in its place: are four rulerships arising out of that nation, but not in its power.
Dan 8:23 “And in the latter time of their rule, when the transgressors have filled up their measure, a sovereign, fierce of face and skilled at intrigues, shall stand up.
Dan 8:24 “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power, and he shall destroy incredibly, and shall prosper and thrive, and destroy mighty men, and the set-apart people.
Dan 8:25 “And through his skill he shall make deceit prosper in his hand, and hold himself to be great in his heart, and destroy many who are at ease, and even stand against the Prince of princes – yet without hand he shall be broken.
Dan 8:26 “And what was said in the vision of the evenings and mornings is truth. And hide the vision, for it is after many days.”
Dan 8:27 And I, Daniy'Al, was stricken and became sick for days. Then I rose up and went about the sovereign’s work. And I was amazed at the vision, but there was no understanding.
Dan 9:1 In the first year of Dariush the son of Achashurush, of the seed of the Madiy, who was set up as sovereign over the reign of the Kashdiym –
Dan 9:2 in the first year of his reign I, Daniy'Al, observed from the Scriptures the number of the years, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 given to YaramYahu the prophet, for the completion of the wastes of Yarushalam would be seventy years.
Dan 9:3 So I set my face toward 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 the Alahiym to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.
Dan 9:4 And I prayed to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, and made confession, and said, “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, great and awesome Al, guarding the covenant and the kindness to those who love Him, and to those who guard His commands.
Dan 9:5 “We have sinned and did crookedness, and did wrong and rebelled, to turn aside from Your commands and from Your right-rulings.
Dan 9:6 “And we have not listened to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your Name to our sovereigns, our heads, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
Dan 9:7 “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to You is the righteousness, and to us the shame of face, as it is this day – to the men of Yahudah, to the inhabitants of Yarushalam and all Yashara'Al, those near and those far off in all the lands to which You have driven them, because of their trespass which they have trespassed against You.
Dan 9:8 “O Master, to us is the shame of face, to our sovereigns, to our heads, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against You.
Dan 9:9 “To 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym are the compassions and forgivenesses, for we have rebelled against Him.
Dan 9:10 “And we have not obeyed the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym, to walk in His Torat, which He set before us through His servants the prophets.
Dan 9:11 “And all Yashara'Al have transgressed Your Torat, and turned aside, so as not to obey Your voice. So the curse and the oath written in the Torat of Mashah the servant of Alahiym have been poured out on us, for we have sinned against Him.
Dan 9:12 “And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our rulers who judged us, by bringing upon us great evil. For under all the shamiym there has not been done like what was done to Yarushalam.
Dan 9:13 “As it is written in the Torat of Mashah, all this evil has come upon us, and we have not entreated the face of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym, to turn back from our crookednesses, and to study Your truth.
Dan 9:14 “Hence 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has watched over the evil and has brought it upon us. For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym is righteous in all the works which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice.
Dan 9:15 “And now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym, who brought Your people out of the land of Matsriym with a strong hand, and made Yourself a Name, as it is this day – we have sinned, we have done wrong!
Dan 9:16 “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your displeasure and Your wrath be turned away from Your city Yarushalam, Your set-apart mountain. For, because of our sins, and because of the crookednesses of our fathers, Yarushalam and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us.
Dan 9:17 “And now, our Alahiym, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, and for the sake of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 cause Your face to shine on Your set-apart place, which is laid waste.
Dan 9:18 “O my Alahiym, incline Your ear and hear. Open Your eyes and see our wastes, and the city which is called by Your Name. For we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great compassions.
Dan 9:19 “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, hear! O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, forgive! O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my Alahiym, for Your city and Your people are called by Your Name.”
Dan 9:20 And while I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Yashara'Al, and presenting my supplication before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym for the set-apart mountain of my Alahiym,
Dan 9:21 while I was still speaking in prayer, the man Gabriy'Al, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, came close to me, in swift flight about the time of the evening offering.
Dan 9:22 And he made me understand, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniy'Al, I have now come forth to make you wise concerning understanding.
Dan 9:23 “At the beginning of your supplications a word went out, and I have come to make it known, for you are greatly appreciated. So consider the word and understand the vision:
Dan 9:24 “Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your set-apart city, to put an end to the transgression, and to seal up sins, and to cover crookedness, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Most Set-apart.
Dan 9:25 “Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yarushalam until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction.
Dan 9:26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end.
Dan 9:27 “And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. And on the wing of abominations he shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed is poured out on the one who lays waste.”
Dan 10:1 In the third year of Kurash sovereign of Pharsa a word was revealed to Daniy'Al, whose name was called Baltashatsar. And the word was true, and the conflict great. And he understood the word, and had understanding of the vision.
Dan 10:2 In those days I, Daniy'Al, was mourning three weeks of days.
Dan 10:3 I did not eat desirable food, and meat and wine did not come into my mouth, and I did not anoint myself at all, till the completion of three weeks of days.
Dan 10:4 And on the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the side of the great river, that is Chadaqal,
Dan 10:5 then I lifted my eyes and looked and saw a certain man dressed in linen, whose loins were girded with gold of A'uphaz!
Dan 10:6 And his body was like beryl, and his face like the appearance of lightning, and his eyes like torches of fire, and his arms and feet like polished bronze in appearance, and the sound of his words like the sound of a crowd.
Dan 10:7 And I, Daniy'Al, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them, and they ran away to hide themselves.
Dan 10:8 So I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me, for my comeliness was destroyed in me, and I retained no strength.
Dan 10:9 But I heard the sound of his words. And while I heard the sound of his words I was stunned lying with my face to the ground.
Dan 10:10 And see, a hand touched me, and set me trembling on my knees and on the palms of my hands.
Dan 10:11 And he said to me, “O Daniy'Al, man greatly appreciated, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” And while he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling.
Dan 10:12 And he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniy'Al, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to humble yourself before your Alahiym, your words were heard, and I have come because of your words.
Dan 10:13 “But the head of the rule of Pharsa withstood me twenty-one days. And see, Miyka'Al, one of the chief heads, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the sovereigns of Pharsa.
Dan 10:14 “And I have come to make you understand what is to befall your people in the latter days. For the vision is yet for days to come.”
Dan 10:15 And when he had spoken such words to me, I turned my face toward the ground and kept silent.
Dan 10:16 And see, one who looked like the sons of men touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and spoke and said to him who stood before me, “My master, because of the vision I have been seized with pains, and I have retained no strength.
Dan 10:17 “So how was this servant of my master able to speak with you, my master? As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.”
Dan 10:18 And again the one who looked like a man touched me and strengthened me.
Dan 10:19 And he said, “Do not fear, O man greatly appreciated! Peace be to you, be strong now, be strong!” So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my master speak, for you have strengthened me.”
Dan 10:20 And he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I return to fight with the head of Pharsa. And when I have left, see, the head of Greece shall come.
Dan 10:21 “But let me declare to you what is written in the Scripture of Truth, and there is no one supporting me against these, except Miyka'Al your head.
Dan 11:1 “And in the first year of Dariush the Madiy, I myself stood up to support and protect him.
Dan 11:2 “And now I declare the truth to you: See, three more sovereigns are to arise in Pharsa, and the fourth is to become far richer than them all. And by his power, through his riches, he stirs up all against the rulership of Greece.
Dan 11:3 “And a mighty sovereign shall arise, and he shall rule with great authority, and do as he pleases.
Dan 11:4 “But when he has arisen, his rule shall be broken up and divided toward the four winds of the shamiym, but not among his descendants nor according to his authority with which he ruled, because his rule shall be uprooted, even for others besides these.
Dan 11:5 “And a sovereign of the South shall become strong, along with one of his princes who gains power over him and shall rule – his rule being a great rule.
Dan 11:6 “And at the end of years they shall join themselves together, and a daughter of the sovereign of the South shall come to the sovereign of the North to make an alliance. But she shall not retain the strength of her power, nor would he or his power stand. And she shall be given up, with those who brought her, and he who brought her forth, and he who supported her in those times.
Dan 11:7 “But from a branch of her roots one shall arise in his place, and he shall come into the defense and come into a stronghold of the sovereign of the North, and shall act against them, and shall prevail,
Dan 11:8 and also their mighty ones, with their princes and their precious utensils of silver and gold he shall seize and bring to Matsriym. And he shall stand more years than the sovereign of the North.
Dan 11:9 “Then he shall enter the reign of the sovereign of the South, but shall return to his own land.
Dan 11:10 “But his sons shall stir themselves up, and assemble a great army. And he shall certainly come and overflow and pass through, then return to his stronghold, and be stirred up.
Dan 11:11 “Then the sovereign of the South shall be enraged and go out to fight with him, with the sovereign of the North, who shall raise a large army. But the army shall be given into the hand of his enemy,
Dan 11:12 and he shall capture the army, his heart being exalted. And he shall cause tens of thousands to fall, but not prevail.
Dan 11:13 “And the sovereign of the North shall return and raise an army greater than the former, and certainly come at the end of some years with a great army and much supplies.
Dan 11:14 “And in those times many shall rise up against the sovereign of the South, while some violent ones among your people exalt themselves to establish the vision, but they shall stumble.
Dan 11:15 “Then the sovereign of the North shall come in and build a siege mound, and capture a city of strongholds. And the arms of the South shall not stand, nor his choice people, for there is no strength to stand.
Dan 11:16 “So his opponent shall do as he pleases – with no one standing against him – and stand in the Splendid Land with destruction in his hand.
Dan 11:17 “And he shall set his face to enter with the strength of his entire rule, and make an alliance with him. And he shall do so, and give him the daughter of women to corrupt her. But she shall not stand, neither be for him.
Dan 11:18 “Then he shall turn his face to the coastlands and capture many. But a ruler shall bring the reproach against them to an end. And with the reproach removed, he shall turn back on him.
Dan 11:19 “Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land, but shall stumble and fall, and not be found.
Dan 11:20 “And in his place one shall stand up who imposes taxes on the adorned city of the rule, but within a few days he is destroyed, but not in wrath or in battle.
Dan 11:21 “And in his place shall arise a despised one, to whom they shall not give the excellency of the rule. But he shall come in peaceably, and seize the rule by flatteries.
Dan 11:22 “And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him and be broken, and also the prince of the covenant.
Dan 11:23 “And after they joined him, he shall work deceit, and shall come up and become strong with a small nation.
Dan 11:24 “He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province, and do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: distribute among them plunder and spoil and supplies, and devise his plots against the strongholds, but only for a time.
Dan 11:25 “And he shall stir up his power and his heart against the sovereign of the South with a great army, and the sovereign of the South shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army, but not stand, for they shall devise plots against him.
