Conflicts to Come

1 "In the first R508 year of Darius the Mede, I F318 arose to be an F319 encouragement and a protection for him. 2 "And now I will tell you the truth. R509 Behold, three more kings are going to arise in F320 Persia. Then a fourth will gain far more riches than all of them; as soon as he becomes strong through his riches, he F321 will arouse the whole empire against the realm of Greece. R510 F322 3 "And a mighty R511 king will arise, and he will rule with great authority and do R512 as he pleases. 4 "But as soon as he has arisen, his kingdom will be broken up and parceled out toward R513 the four R514 points F323 of the compass, though not to his own descendants, nor according to his authority which he wielded, for his sovereignty will be uprooted R515 and given to others besides them. F324

5 "Then the king R516 of the South will grow strong, along F325 with one of his princes who F326 will gain ascendancy over him and obtain dominion; his domain will be a great dominion indeed. 6 "After some years they will form an alliance, and the daughter of the king of the South will come to the king R517 of the North to carry out a F327 peaceful arrangement. But she will not retain her position F328 of power, nor will he remain with his power, F329 but she will be given up, along with those who brought her in and the one who sired her as well as he who supported her in those times. 7 "But one of the descendants F330 of her line will arise in his place, and he will come against their army and enter the fortress R518 of the king of the North, and he will deal with them and display great strength. 8 "Also their gods R519 with their metal F331 images and their precious vessels of silver and gold he will take into captivity to Egypt, and he on his part will refrain F332 from attacking the king of the North for some years. 9 "Then the F333 latter will enter the realm of the king of the South, but will return to his own land.

10 "His sons will mobilize F334 and assemble a multitude of great forces; and one of them will keep on coming and overflow R520 and pass through, that he may again F335 wage war up to his very fortress. 11 "The king R521 of the South will be enraged and go forth and fight with F336 the king of the North. Then the latter will raise a great multitude, but that multitude will be given into the F337 hand of the former. 12 "When the multitude is carried away, his heart will be lifted up, and he will cause tens of thousands to fall; yet he will not prevail. 13 "For the king of the North will again raise a greater multitude than the former, and after F338 an interval R522 of some years he will press F339 on with a great army and much equipment.

14 "Now in those times many will rise up against the king of the South; the violent ones among your people will also lift themselves up in order to fulfill the vision, but they will fall F340 down. 15 "Then the king of the North will come, cast up a siege R523 ramp and capture a well-fortified city; and the forces of the South will not stand their ground, not even their F341 choicest troops, for there will be no strength to make a stand. 16 "But he who comes against him will do R524 as he pleases, and no R525 one will be able to withstand him; he will also stay for a time in the Beautiful R526 F342 Land, with destruction in his hand. 17 "He will set R527 his face to come with the power of his whole kingdom, bringing F343 with him a F344 proposal of peace which he will put into effect; he will also give him the daughter of women to ruin it. But she will not take a stand for him or be on F345 his side. 18 "Then he will turn his face to the coastlands R528 and capture many. But a commander will put a stop to his scorn against him; moreover, he will repay R529 him for his scorn. 19 "So he will turn his face toward the fortresses of his own land, but he will stumble R530 and fall and be found R531 no more.

20 "Then in his place one will arise who will send R532 an oppressor F346 through the Jewel F347 of his kingdom; yet within a few days he will be shattered, though not in anger nor in battle. 21 "In his place a despicable person will arise, on whom the honor of kingship has not been conferred, but he will come in a time of tranquility and seize R533 the kingdom by intrigue. 22 "The overflowing forces R534 will be flooded away before him and shattered, and also the prince of the covenant. 23 "After an alliance is made with him he will practice deception, and he will go up and gain power with a small force of people. 24 "In F348 a time of tranquility he will enter the richest R535 parts of the realm, F349 and he will accomplish what his fathers never did, nor his ancestors; F350 he will distribute plunder, booty and possessions among them, and he will devise his schemes against strongholds, but only for a time. 25 "He will stir up his strength and courage F351 against the king R536 of the South with a large army; so the king of the South will mobilize an extremely large and mighty army for war; but he will not stand, for schemes will be devised against him. 26 "Those who eat his choice food will destroy F352 him, and his army will overflow, R537 F353 but many will fall down slain. 27 "As for both kings, their hearts will be intent on evil, R538 and they will speak R539 lies to each other at the same table; but it will not succeed, for the end R540 is still to come at the appointed time. 28 "Then he will return to his land with much plunder; F354 but his heart will be set against the holy covenant, and he will take action and then return to his own land.

29 "At the appointed time he will return and come into the South, but this F355 last time it will not turn out the way it did before. 30 "For ships of Kittim R541 F356 will come against him; therefore he will be disheartened and will return and become enraged at the holy covenant and take action; so he will come back and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 "Forces from him will arise, desecrate R542 the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination R543 of F357 desolation. 32 "By smooth R544 words he will turn F358 to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength R545 and take action. 33 "Those R546 F359 who have insight among the people will give understanding to the many; yet they will fall R547 by sword and by flame, by captivity and by plunder for many days. 34 "Now when they fall they will be granted a little help, and many will join R548 with them in hypocrisy. R549 35 "Some of those F360 who have insight will fall, in order to refine, R550 purge R551 and make them pure R552 F361 until the end R553 time; because it is still to come at the appointed time.

36 "Then the king will do R554 as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify R555 himself above every god and will speak R556 monstrous F362 things against the God R557 of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation R558 is finished, for that which is decreed R559 will be done. 37 "He will show no regard for the gods F363 of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. 38 "But instead F364 he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures. 39 "He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those F365 who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.

40 "At the end R560 time the king R561 of the South will collide with him, and the king R562 of the North will storm R563 against him with chariots, with horsemen and with many ships; and he will enter countries, overflow R564 them and pass through. 41 "He will also enter the Beautiful R565 F366 Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, Moab R566 and the foremost of the sons of Ammon. R567 42 "Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape. 43 "But he will gain F367 control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and Libyans R568 and Ethiopians R569 will follow at his heels. F368 44 "But rumors from the East and from the North will disturb him, and he will go forth with great wrath to destroy and annihilate F369 many. 45 "He will pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy R570 Mountain; yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.
