Daniel
From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes

 

Da 1:1

1:1 In the {a} third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.

The Argument - The great providence of God, and his singular mercy towards his Church are set forth here most vividly, who never leaves his own destitute, but now in their greatest miseries and afflictions gives them Prophets, such as Ezekiel and Daniel, whom he adorned with special graces of his Holy Spirit. And Daniel above all others had most special revelations of such things as would come to the Church, even from the time that they were in captivity, to the last end of the world, and to the general resurrection, as of the four Monarchies and empires of all the world, that is, of the Babylonians, Persians, Grecians, and Romans. Also of the certain number of the times even until Christ, when all ceremonies and sacrifices would cease, because he would be the accomplishment of them: moreover he shows Christ's office and the reason of his death, which was by his sacrifice to take away sins, and to bring everlasting life. And as from the beginning God always exercised his people under the cross, so he teaches here, that after Christ is offered, he will still leave this exercise to his Church, until the dead rise again, and Christ gathers his own into his kingdom in the heavens.

Da 1:2

1:2 And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of {b} Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.

Da 1:3

1:3 And the king spake unto {c} Ashpenaz the master of his {d} eunuchs, that he should bring [certain] of the children of Israel, and of the {e} king's seed, and of the princes;

Da 1:4

1:4 Children in whom [was] no blemish, but well {f} favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as [had] ability in them to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the {g} learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

Da 1:5

1:5 And the king appointed them a {h} daily provision of the king's meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them {i} three years, that at the end thereof they might stand {k} before the king.

Da 1:7

1:7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs {l} gave names: for he gave unto Daniel [the name] of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

Da 1:8

1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not {m} defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Da 1:10

1:10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, {n} I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which [are] of your sort? then shall ye make [me] endanger my head to the king.

Da 1:12

1:12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, {o} ten days; and let them give us {p} pulse to eat, and water to drink.

Da 1:15

1:15 And at the end of ten days their {q} countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat.

Da 1:17

1:17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning {r} and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all {s} visions and dreams.

Da 1:18

1:18 Now at the {t} end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.

Da 1:21

1:21 And Daniel continued [even] unto {u} the first year of king Cyrus.

Da 2:1

2:1 And in the {a} second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed {b} dreams, wherewith his spirit was {c} troubled, and {d} his sleep brake from him.

Da 2:2

2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the {e} Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.

Da 2:4

2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in {f} Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.

Da 2:5

2:5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye {g} shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

Da 2:7

2:7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell {h} his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.

Da 2:13

2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise [men] should be slain; and they {i} sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.

Da 2:22

2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and the {k} light dwelleth with him.

Da 2:23

2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my {l} fathers, who hast given me wisdom and {m} might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast [now] made known unto us the king's matter.

Da 2:24

2:24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise [men] of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not {n} the wise [men] of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

Da 2:28

2:28 But there is a God in {o} heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

Da 2:30

2:30 But as {p} for me, this secret is not revealed to me for [any] wisdom that I have more than any living, but for [their] sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

Da 2:32

2:32 This image's head [was] of fine {q} gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

Da 2:38

2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou [art] {r} this head of gold.

Da 2:39

2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom {s} inferior to thee, and another {t} third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Da 2:40

2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all [things]: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in {u} pieces and bruise.

Da 2:41

2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be {x} divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Da 2:43

2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with {y} the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Da 2:44

2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which {z} shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Da 2:45

2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the {a} stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Da 2:46

2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and {b} worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

Da 2:47

2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth [it is], that your {c} God [is] a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

Da 2:48

2:48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great {d} gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise [men] of Babylon.

Da 2:49

2:49 Then Daniel {e} requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel [sat] in the {f} gate of the king.

Da 3:1

3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made {a} an image of gold, whose height [was] threescore cubits, [and] the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Da 3:2

3:2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the {b} dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the {c} king had set up.

Da 3:4

3:4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, {d} nations, and languages,

Da 3:12

3:12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, {e} Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Da 3:15

3:15 {f} Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; [well]: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who [is] that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?

Da 3:16

3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we {g} [are] not careful to answer thee in this matter.

Da 3:17

3:17 If it be [so], our God whom we serve is {h} able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver [us] out of thine hand, O king.

Da 3:19

3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: [therefore] he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven {i} times more than it was wont to be heated.

Da 3:25

3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the {k} Son of God.

Da 3:26

3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, [and] spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come [hither]. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, {l} came forth of the midst of the fire.

Da 3:28

3:28 [Then] Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, {m} Blessed [be] the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

Da 3:29

3:29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak {n} any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

Da 4:1

4:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the {o} earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.

Da 4:3

4:3 How great [are] his signs! and how mighty [are] his wonders! {p} his kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion [is] from generation to generation.

Da 4:4

4:4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at {a} rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace:

Da 4:5

4:5 I saw a {b} dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of my head troubled me.

Da 4:7

4:7 Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but {c} they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof.

Da 4:8

4:8 But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name [was] {d} Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god, and in whom [is] the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, [saying],

Da 4:9

4:9 O Belteshazzar, {e} master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods [is] in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.

Da 4:10

4:10 Thus [were] the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a {f} tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof [was] great.

Da 4:13

4:13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a {g} watcher and an holy one came down from heaven;

Da 4:16

4:16 {h} Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.

Da 4:17

4:17 {i} This matter [is] by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Da 4:19

4:19 Then Daniel, whose name [was] Belteshazzar, was {k} astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream [be] to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.

Da 4:23

4:23 And whereas the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and [let] his portion [be] with the beasts of the field, {l} till seven times pass over him;

Da 4:25

4:25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as {m} oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that {n} the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

Da 4:27

4:27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and {o} break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a {p} lengthening of thy tranquillity.

Da 4:29

4:29 At the end of twelve {q} months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.

Da 4:34

4:34 And at the end of the {r} days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom [is] from generation to generation:

Da 4:35

4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth [are] reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his {s} will in the army of heaven, and [among] the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Da 4:36

4:36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and {t} my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

Da 4:37

4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar {u} praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Da 5:1

5:1 {a} Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine {b} before the thousand.

Da 5:2

5:2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his {c} father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which [was] in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.

Da 5:4

5:4 They drank wine, and praised the {d} gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.

Da 5:5

5:5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over {e} against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

Da 5:6

5:6 Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his {f} knees smote one against another.

Da 5:7

5:7 The king cried aloud to bring in {g} the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. [And] the king spake, and said to the wise [men] of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and [have] a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.

Da 5:10

5:10 [Now] the {h} queen, by reason of the words of the king and his lords, came into the banquet house: [and] the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed:

Da 5:11

5:11 There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom [is] the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, [I say], thy father, made master of the {i} magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, [and] soothsayers;

Da 5:14

5:14 I have even heard of thee, that {k} the spirit of the gods [is] in thee, and [that] light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee.

Da 5:18

5:18 O thou king, the most high God gave {l} Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:

Da 5:24

5:24 {m} Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.

Da 5:25

5:25 And this [is] the writing that was written, {n} MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

Da 5:31

5:31 And Darius {o} the Median took the kingdom, [being] about threescore and two years old.

Da 6:1

6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom {a} an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;

Da 6:3

6:3 Then this Daniel {b} was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit [was] in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.

Da 6:4

6:4 Then the presidents and princes {c} sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he [was] faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.

Da 6:9

6:9 Wherefore king Darius {d} signed the writing and the decree.

Da 6:10

6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his {e} windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

Da 6:15

6:15 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians [is], That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be {f} changed.

Da 6:20

6:20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: [and] the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, {g} able to deliver thee from the lions?

Da 6:22

6:22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him {h} innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done {i} no hurt.

Da 6:23

6:23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he {k} believed in his God.

Da 6:24

6:24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they {l} cast [them] into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

Da 6:26

6:26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear {m} before the God of Daniel: for he [is] the {n} living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion [shall be even] unto the end.

Da 7:1

7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: {a} then he wrote the dream, [and] told the sum of the matters.

Da 7:2

7:2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon {b} the great sea.

Da 7:4

7:4 The first [was] like a {c} lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

Da 7:5

7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a {d} bear, and it raised up itself on {e} one side, and [it had] three ribs in the {f} mouth of it between the teeth of it: {g} and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

Da 7:6

7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a {h} leopard, which had upon the back of it {i} four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and {k} dominion was given to it.

Da 7:7

7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a {l} fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great {m} iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped {n} the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had {o} ten horns.

Da 7:8

7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little {p} horn, before whom there were {q} three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn [were] {r} eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Da 7:9

7:9 I beheld till the {s} thrones were cast down, and the {t} Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire.

Da 7:10

7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand {u} times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the {x} books were opened.

Da 7:11

7:11 I beheld then {y} because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld [even] till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

Da 7:12

7:12 As {z} concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

Da 7:13

7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, {a} [one] like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and {b} came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Da 7:14

7:14 And there was given him {c} dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.

Da 7:15

7:15 I Daniel was {d} grieved in my spirit in the midst of [my] body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

Da 7:16

7:16 I came near unto {e} one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

Da 7:18

7:18 But the saints of the {f} most High shall take the {g} kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

Da 7:19

7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was {h} diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth [were of] iron, and his nails [of] brass; [which] devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the {i} residue with his feet;

Da 7:20

7:20 And of the ten horns that [were] in his head, and [of] the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even [of] that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose {k} look [was] more stout than his fellows.

Da 7:21

7:21 I beheld, and the same {l} horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

Da 7:22

7:22 Until {m} the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Da 7:24

7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue {n} three kings.

Da 7:25

7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against {o} the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to {p} change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a {q} time and times and the dividing of time.

Da 7:26

7:26 But the {r} judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end.

Da 7:27

7:27 And the {s} kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all {t} dominions shall serve and obey him.

Da 7:28

7:28 Hitherto [is] the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my {u} cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Da 8:1

8:1 In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, [even unto] me Daniel, {a} after that which appeared unto me at the first.

Da 8:2

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 {b} of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.

Da 8:3

8:3 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a {c} ram which had [two] horns: and the [two] horns [were] high; but one [was] {d} higher than the other, and the higher came up last.

Da 8:4

8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no {e} 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.

Da 8:5

8:5 And as I was considering, behold, {f} an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat [had] a notable {g} horn between his eyes.

Da 8:7

8:7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and {h} smote the ram, and brake 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.

Da 8:8

8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great {i} horn was broken; and for it came up four {k} notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

Da 8:9

8:9 And out of one of them came forth a {l} little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the {m} south, and toward the {n} east, and toward the {o} pleasant [land].

Da 8:10

8:10 And it waxed great, [even] to the {p} host of heaven; and it cast down [some] of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

Da 8:11

8:11 Yea, he magnified [himself] even to the {q} prince of the host, and by him the {r} daily [sacrifice] was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

Da 8:12

8:12 And {s} an host was given [him] against the daily [sacrifice] by reason of transgression, and it {t} cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

Da 8:13

8:13 Then I heard one {u} saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain [saint] which spake, How long [shall be] the vision [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of {x} desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the {y} host to be trodden under foot?

Da 8:14

8:14 And {z} he said unto me, Unto {a} two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Da 8:15

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 {b} as the appearance of a man.

Da 8:16

8:16 And I heard a man's voice between [the banks of] Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, {c} make this [man] to understand the vision.

Da 8:17

8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for {d} at the time of the end [shall be] the vision.

Da 8:19

8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last {e} end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end [shall be].

Da 8:22

8:22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up {f} out of the nation, but not {g} in his power.

Da 8:23

8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of {h} fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

Da 8:24

8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not {i} by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the {k} mighty and the holy people.

Da 8:25

8:25 And through his {l} policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and by {m} peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the {n} Prince of princes; but he shall be broken {o} without hand.

Da 8:26

8:26 And the vision of the {p} evening and the morning which was told [is] true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it [shall be] for many days.

Da 8:27

8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick {q} [certain] days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood [it].

Da 9:1

9:1 In the first year of Darius the son of {a} Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the {b} realm of the Chaldeans;

Da 9:2

9:2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by {c} books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Da 9:3

9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to {d} seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

Da 9:4

9:4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the {e} great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

Da 9:7

9:7 O Lord, {f} righteousness [belongeth] unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, [that are] near, and [that are] far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

Da 9:8

9:8 O Lord, to us [belongeth] confusion of face, to our {g} kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

Da 9:10

9:10 Neither have we obeyed the {h} voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

Da 9:11

9:11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the {i} curse is poured upon us, and the oath that [is] written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

Da 9:16

9:16 O Lord, according to all thy {k} righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people [are become] a reproach to all [that are] about us.

Da 9:17

9:17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to {l} shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the {m} Lord's sake.

Da 9:18

9:18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our {n} righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.

Da 9:19

9:19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, {o} hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

Da 9:24

9:24 Seventy {p} weeks are determined upon {q} thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the {r} transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Da 9:25

9:25 Know therefore and understand, [that] from {s} the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven {t} weeks, and {u} threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

Da 9:26

9:26 And after threescore and two {x} weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but {y} not for himself: and the people of the {z} prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Da 9:27

9:27 And he {a} shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to {b} cease, {c} and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Da 10:1

10:1 In the {a} third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing [was] true, but the time appointed [was] {b} long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.

Da 10:4

10:4 And in the four and twentieth day of the {c} first month, as I {d} was by the side of the great river, which [is] Hiddekel;

Da 10:5

10:5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man {e} clothed in linen, whose loins [were] girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

Da 10:8

10:8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for {f} my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength.

Da 10:10

10:10 And, behold, an {g} hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and [upon] the palms of my hands.

Da 10:13

10:13 But the {h} prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, {i} Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

Da 10:14

10:14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the {k} vision [is] for [many] days.

Da 10:16

10:16 And, behold, {l} [one] like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, {m} by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.

Da 10:19

10:19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: {n} peace [be] unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I {o} was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.

Da 10:20

10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the {p} prince of Grecia shall come.

Da 10:21

10:21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: {q} and [there is] none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

Da 11:1

11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, [even] I, {a} stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

Da 11:2

11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet {b} 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 {c} all against the realm of Grecia.

Da 11:3

11:3 And a {d} mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

Da 11:4

11:4 And when he shall stand up, {e} his kingdom shall be broken, {f} and shall be divided toward the {g} four winds of heaven; and not to his {h} posterity, nor according to {i} his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside {k} those.

Da 11:5

11:5 And the {l} king of the south shall be strong, and [one] of {m} his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion [shall be] a great dominion.

Da 11:6

11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's {n} 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 {o} arm; neither shall {p} he stand, nor his {q} arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he {r} that begat her, and he that strengthened her in [these] times.

Da 11:7

11:7 But out of a branch of her {s} roots shall [one] stand up in his estate, {t} which 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:

Da 11:8

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 {u} [more] years than the king of the north.

Da 11:10

11:10 But his {x} sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and [one] {y} shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he {z} return, and be stirred up, [even] to his fortress.

Da 11:11

11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, [even] with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great {a} multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

Da 11:13

11:13 For the king of the north {b} 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.

Da 11:14

11:14 And in those times there shall {c} many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy {d} people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.

Da 11:15

11:15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall {e} not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither [shall there be any] strength to withstand.

Da 11:16

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 {f} glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

Da 11:17

11:17 He shall also {g} 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 {h} daughter of women, corrupting {i} her: but {k} she shall not stand [on his side], neither be for him.

Da 11:18

11:18 After this shall he turn his face unto the {l} isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf {m} shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause [it] to turn upon {n} him.

Da 11:19

11:19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of {o} his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be {p} found.

Da 11:20

11:20 {q} 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 {r} anger, nor in battle.

Da 11:21

11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a {s} vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

Da 11:22

11:22 And with the {t} arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the {u} covenant.

Da 11:23

11:23 And after {x} the league [made] with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a {y} small people.

Da 11:24

11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do [that] which his fathers {z} have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: [yea], and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a {a} time.

Da 11:25

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 {b} stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.

Da 11:26

11:26 Yea, they that feed of the portion of {c} his meat shall destroy him, and his army {d} shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.

Da 11:27

11:27 And both these kings' hearts [shall be] to do {e} mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for {f} yet the end [shall be] at the time appointed.

Da 11:28

11:28 Then shall he return into his land with great {g} riches; and his heart [shall be] against the holy covenant; and he shall do [exploits], and return to his own land.

Da 11:30

11:30 For the ships {h} 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, {i} and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

Da 11:31

11:31 And arms {k} shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary {l} of strength, and shall take away the daily [sacrifice], and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Da 11:32

11:32 And such as do wickedly {m} against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do [exploits].

Da 11:33

11:33 And they that understand among the {n} people shall instruct many: {o} yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, [many] days.

Da 11:34

11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a {p} little help: but many shall cleave to them {q} with flatteries.

Da 11:35

11:35 And [some] of them {r} 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.

Da 11:36

11:36 And the {s} king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation {t} be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

Da 11:37

11:37 Neither shall he regard the {u} God of his fathers, nor the desire {x} of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

Da 11:38

11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the {y} God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with {z} gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

Da 11:39

11:39 Thus shall he do in {a} 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.

Da 11:40

11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the {b} 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.

Da 11:41

11:41 He shall enter also into the {c} 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.

Da 11:44

11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall {d} trouble him: therefore he shall go forth {e} with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

Da 11:45

11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles {f} of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Da 12:1

12:1 And at that {a} time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Da 12:2

12:2 And many {b} of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.

Da 12:3

12:3 And they that be {c} wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that {d} turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Da 12:4

12:4 But thou, O Daniel, {e} shut up the words, and seal the book, {f} [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Da 12:5

12:5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the {g} river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.

Da 12:7

12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which [was] upon the waters of the river, when he held up his {h} right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that [it shall be] for a {i} time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished {k} to scatter the power of the holy people, all these [things] shall be finished.

Da 12:11

12:11 And from the time [that] the {l} daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there {m} shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Da 12:12

12:12 Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and {n} five and thirty days.

Da 12:13

12:13 But go {o} thou thy way till the end [be]: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
