The Book of
Daniel
___________________

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

DAN 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 Shinar
to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house
of his god.

DAN 1:3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he
should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and
of the princes;

DAN 1:4 Children in whom was no blemish, but well 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
learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

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

DAN 1:6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah,
Mishael, and Azariah:

DAN 1:7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs 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.

DAN 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not 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.

DAN 1:9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince
of the eunuchs.

DAN 1:10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, 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.

DAN 1:11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set
over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

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

DAN 1:13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the
countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and
as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

DAN 1:14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

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

DAN 1:16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that
they should drink; and gave them pulse.

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

DAN 1:18 Now at the 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.

DAN 1:19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none
like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the
king.

DAN 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king
enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and
astrologers that were in all his realm.

DAN 1:21 And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.

DAN 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar
dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from
him.

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

DAN 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was
troubled to know the dream.

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

DAN 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 shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

DAN 2:6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall
receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the
dream, and the interpretation thereof.

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

DAN 2:8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the
time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.

DAN 2:9 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one
decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before
me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know
that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.

DAN 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man
upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king,
lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or
Chaldean.

DAN 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none
other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is
not with flesh.

DAN 2:12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to
destroy all the wise men of Babylon.

DAN 2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they
sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.

DAN 2:14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain
of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:

DAN 2:15 He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree
so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.

DAN 2:16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him
time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.

DAN 2:17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah,
Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:

DAN 2:18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this
secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the
wise men of Babylon.

DAN 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then
Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

DAN 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and
ever: for wisdom and might are his:

DAN 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and
setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that
know understanding:

DAN 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the
darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

DAN 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast
given me wisdom and 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.

DAN 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
the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto
the king the interpretation.

DAN 2:25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus
unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known
unto the king the interpretation.

DAN 2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar,
Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the
interpretation thereof?

DAN 2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret
which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the
magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;

DAN 2:28 But there is a God in 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;

DAN 2:29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed,
what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh
known to thee what shall come to pass.

DAN 2:30 But as 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.

DAN 2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image,
whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was
terrible.

DAN 2:32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of
silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

DAN 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

DAN 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote
the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

DAN 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold,
broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer
threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for
them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled
the whole earth.

DAN 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before
the king.

DAN 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given
thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

DAN 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 this head of gold.

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

DAN 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 pieces and bruise.

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

DAN 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so
the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

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

DAN 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a
kingdom, which 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.

DAN 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the 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.

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

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

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

DAN 2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the
gate of the king.

DAN 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made 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.

DAN 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 dedication
of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

DAN 3:3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the
treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the
provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that
Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that
Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

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

DAN 3:5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp,
sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and
worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:

DAN 3:6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast
into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

DAN 3:7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the
cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the
people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden
image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

DAN 3:8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the
Jews.

DAN 3:9 They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever.

DAN 3:10 Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the
sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all
kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image:

DAN 3:11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast
into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

DAN 3:12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the
province of Babylon, 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.

DAN 3:13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king.

DAN 3:14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image
which I have set up?

DAN 3:15 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?

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

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

DAN 3:18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy
gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

DAN 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 times more than it was
wont to be heated.

DAN 3:20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery
furnace.

DAN 3:21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their
hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning
fiery furnace.

DAN 3:22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace
exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego.

DAN 3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound
into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

DAN 3:24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and
spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into
the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.

DAN 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
Son of God.

DAN 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, came forth of the midst of the fire.

DAN 3:27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors,
being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no
power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats
changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

DAN 3:28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, 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.

DAN 3:29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language,
which speak 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.

DAN 3:30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the
province of Babylon.

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

DAN 4:2 I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath
wrought toward me.

DAN 4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom
is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.

DAN 4:4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my
palace:

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

DAN 4:6 Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon
before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the
dream.

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

DAN 4:8 But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was 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,

DAN 4:9 O Belteshazzar, 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.

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

DAN 4:11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto
heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:

DAN 4:12 The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it
was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls
of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.

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

DAN 4:14 He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his
branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get
away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:

DAN 4:15 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots 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 in the grass
of the earth:

DAN 4:16 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.

DAN 4:17 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.

DAN 4:18 This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar,
declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my
kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art
able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.

DAN 4:19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was 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.

DAN 4:20 The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height
reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth;

DAN 4:21 Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was
meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose
branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:

DAN 4:22 It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy
greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end
of the earth.

DAN 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, till seven times pass over him;

DAN 4:24 This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the
most High, which is come upon my lord the king:

DAN 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 oxen, and
they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over
thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and
giveth it to whomsoever he will.

DAN 4:26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy
kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the
heavens do rule.

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

DAN 4:28 All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.

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

DAN 4:30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have
built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the
honour of my majesty?

DAN 4:31 While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from
heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is
departed from thee.

DAN 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with
the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven
times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the
kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

DAN 4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was
driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew
of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails
like birds' claws.

DAN 4:34 And at the end of the 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:

DAN 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he
doeth according to his 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?

DAN 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
my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent
majesty was added unto me.

DAN 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar 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.

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

DAN 5:2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden
and silver vessels which his 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.

DAN 5:3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple
of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes,
his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.

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

DAN 5:5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over
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.

DAN 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 knees smote one
against another.

DAN 5:7 The king cried aloud to bring in 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.

DAN 5:8 Then came in all the king's wise men: but they could not read the
writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof.

DAN 5:9 Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his countenance was
changed in him, and his lords were astonied.

DAN 5:10 Now the 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:

DAN 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 magicians,
astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers;

DAN 5:12 Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding,
interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of
doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now
let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.

DAN 5:13 Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and
said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of the
captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry?

DAN 5:14 I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is
in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found
in thee.

DAN 5:15 And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before
me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the
interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the
thing:

DAN 5:16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and
dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the
interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain
of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.

DAN 5:17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to
thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto
the king, and make known to him the interpretation.

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

DAN 5:19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and
languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he
would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put
down.

DAN 5:20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he
was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:

DAN 5:21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like
the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass
like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the
most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it
whomsoever he will.

DAN 5:22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though
thou knewest all this;

DAN 5:23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have
brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy
wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the
gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor
hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all
thy ways, hast thou not glorified:

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

DAN 5:25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL,
UPHARSIN.

DAN 5:26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy
kingdom, and finished it.

DAN 5:27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

DAN 5:28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

DAN 5:29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and
put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him,
that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.

DAN 5:30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.

DAN 5:31 And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and
two years old.

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

DAN 6:2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the
princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.

DAN 6:3 Then this Daniel 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.

DAN 6:4 Then the presidents and princes 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.

DAN 6:5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this
Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.

DAN 6:6 Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and
said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.

DAN 6:7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the
counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal
statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of
any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into
the den of lions.

DAN 6:8 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be
not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth
not.

DAN 6:9 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.

DAN 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his
house; and his 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.

DAN 6:11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making
supplication before his God.

DAN 6:12 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's
decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a
petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be
cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true,
according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.

DAN 6:13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is
of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor
the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.

DAN 6:14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with
himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the
going down of the sun to deliver him.

DAN 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 changed.

DAN 6:16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into
the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou
servest continually, he will deliver thee.

DAN 6:17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the
king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that
the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.

DAN 6:18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting:
neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went
from him.

DAN 6:19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto
the den of lions.

DAN 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, able to deliver thee
from the lions?

DAN 6:21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

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

DAN 6:23 Then was the king exceedingly 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 believed in his
God.

DAN 6:24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused
Daniel, and they 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.

DAN 6:25 Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that
dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.

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

DAN 6:27 He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in
heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.

DAN 6:28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of
Cyrus the Persian.

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

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

DAN 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

DAN 7:4 The first was like a 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.

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

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

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

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

DAN 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the 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.

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

DAN 7:11 I beheld then 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.

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

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

DAN 7:14 And there was given him 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.

DAN 7:15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the
visions of my head troubled me.

DAN 7:16 I came near unto 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.

DAN 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise
out of the earth.

DAN 7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess
the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

DAN 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was 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 residue with
his feet;

DAN 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 look was more stout than his
fellows.

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

DAN 7:22 Until 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.

DAN 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon
earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole
earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

DAN 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 three kings.

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

DAN 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to
consume and to destroy it unto the end.

DAN 7:27 And the 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 dominions shall serve
and obey him.

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

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

DAN 8:2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at
Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a
vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.

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

DAN 8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that
no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver
out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.

DAN 8:5 And as I was considering, behold, 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 horn between his eyes.

DAN 8:6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing
before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.

DAN 8:7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler
against him, and 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.

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

DAN 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding
great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

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

DAN 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him
the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast
down.

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

DAN 8:13 Then I heard one 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 desolation, to give both the sanctuary
and the host to be trodden under foot?

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

DAN 8:15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and
sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance
of a man.

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

DAN 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 at the
time of the end shall be the vision.

DAN 8:18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face
toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.

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

DAN 8:20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and
Persia.

DAN 8:21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is
between his eyes is the first king.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DAN 9:2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by 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.

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

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

DAN 9:5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done
wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy
judgments:

DAN 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake
in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people
of the land.

DAN 9:7 O LORD, 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.

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

DAN 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have
rebelled against him;

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

DAN 9:11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that
they might not obey thy voice; therefore the 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.

DAN 9:12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and
against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for
under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

DAN 9:13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us:
yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from
our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

DAN 9:14 Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon
us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we
obeyed not his voice.

DAN 9:15 And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out
of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at
this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

DAN 9:16 O LORD, according to all thy 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.

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

DAN 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 righteousnesses, but for thy
great mercies.

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

DAN 9:20 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the
sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my
God for the holy mountain of my God;

DAN 9:21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I
had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched
me about the time of the evening oblation.

DAN 9:22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now
come forth to give thee skill and understanding.

DAN 9:23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and
I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand
the matter, and consider the vision.

DAN 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,
to finish the 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.

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

DAN 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not
for himself: and the people of the 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.

DAN 9:27 And he 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 cease, and
for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until
the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

DAN 10:1 In the 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 long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding
of the vision.

DAN 10:2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.

DAN 10:3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth,
neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

DAN 10:4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the
side of the great river, which is Hiddekel;

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

DAN 10:6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of
lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in
colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a
multitude.

DAN 10:7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw
not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide
themselves.

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

DAN 10:9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his
words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.

DAN 10:10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon
the palms of my hands.

DAN 10:11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the
words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent.
And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.

DAN 10:12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that
thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy
God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.

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

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

DAN 10:15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the
ground, and I became dumb.

DAN 10:16 And, behold, 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, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have
retained no strength.

DAN 10:17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for
as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there
breath left in me.

DAN 10:18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a
man, and he strengthened me,

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

DAN 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 prince of Grecia shall come.

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

DAN 11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm
and to strengthen him.

DAN 11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet
three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and
by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of
Grecia.

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

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

DAN 11:5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes;
and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a
great dominion.

DAN 11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the
king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an
agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he
stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and
he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.

DAN 11:7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate,
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:

DAN 11:8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their
princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall
continue more years than the king of the north.

DAN 11:9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall
return into his own land.

DAN 11:10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of
great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through:
then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress.

DAN 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 multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

DAN 11:12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted
up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be
strengthened by it.

DAN 11:13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a
multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain
years with a great army and with much riches.

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

DAN 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 not withstand,
neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

DAN 11:16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own
will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious
land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

DAN 11:17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole
kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him
the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side,
neither be for him.

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

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

DAN 11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory
of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger,
nor in battle.

DAN 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a 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.

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

DAN 11:23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he
shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

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

DAN 11:25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king
of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up
to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they
shall forecast devices against him.

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

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

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

DAN 11:29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south;
but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.

DAN 11:30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall
be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so
shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that
forsake the holy covenant.

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

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

DAN 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet
they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many
days.

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

DAN 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to
purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet
for a time appointed.

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

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

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

DAN 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom
he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule
over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

DAN 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him:
and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with
chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the
countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

DAN 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall
be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and
Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

DAN 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the
land of Egypt shall not escape.

DAN 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of
silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the
Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

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

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

DAN 12:1 And at that 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.

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

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

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

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

DAN 12:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters
of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?

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

DAN 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall
be the end of these things?

DAN 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and
sealed till the time of the end.

DAN 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked
shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise
shall understand.

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

DAN 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred
and five and thirty days.

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