Persia and Greece1 And I in [2year 1the first] of Cyrus stood for might and strength. 2 And now [2truth 1I shall announce] to you, Behold, still three kings shall arise in Persia; and the fourth shall be rich [2riches 1in great], more than all. And after his prevailing by his riches, he shall rise up against all the kingdoms of the Greeks. 3 And [3shall rise up 2king 1a mighty], and he shall lord over [2dominion 1a great], and he shall do according to his will. 4 And when ever [2should stand 1his kingdom], it shall be broken, and shall be divided into the four winds of the heaven; and not unto his latter end, nor according to his dominion which he lorded over. For [3was plucked up 2kingdom 1his], and to others outside of these it shall be given.
The Kings of the North and South5 And [5grew in strength 1the 2king 3of the 4south]; and one of his rulers shall grow in strength over him, and shall lord over [2dominion 1a great] by his authority. 6 And after his years they shall be mixed together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall enter in to the king of the north to make treaties with him. And she shall not hold strength of arm; and [2shall not 3stand 1his seed], and she shall be delivered up, and the ones bringing her, and the young woman, and the one strengthening her in the times. 7 And one shall rise up from out of the flower of her root unto his preparation; and he shall come against the force, and shall enter unto the supporters of the king of the north, and shall deal with them, and shall prevail. 8 And indeed their gods with their molten images, and every [2item 1desirable] of theirs of silver and of gold, with the captivity, he shall bring into Egypt. And he shall stand over the king of the north. 9 And he shall enter into the kingdom of the king of the south, and shall return unto his land. 10 And his sons shall gather a multitude [2forces 1of many]. And [2shall come 1one coming], even inundating, and shall go by. And he shall settle, and shall grapple together unto his strength. 11 And [5shall be wild 1the 2king 3of the 4south], and shall come forth and wage war with the king of the north. And he shall establish [2multitude 1a great]; but there shall be delivered up a multitude in his hand. 12 And he shall take the multitude, and [2shall be exalted 1his heart]; and he shall throw down myriads, and he shall not prevail. 13 And [5shall return 1the 2king 3of the 4north], and shall lead [2multitude 1a great] more than the former. And in the end of the times he shall come upon an entrance in [2power 1great], and in [2substance 1much]. 14 And in those times many shall rise up against the king of the south. And the sons of the pestilent ones of your people shall be lifted up to establish the vision; and they shall weaken. 15 And [4shall enter 1the king 2of the 3north], and shall discharge a mound, and shall seize [2cities 1fortified]. And the arms of the king of the south shall not stand, and [2shall rise up 1his chosen ones], and there will not be strength to stand. 16 And [3shall do 1the one 2entering] to him according to his will, and there is not one standing against his face. And he shall stand in the land of glory, and it shall be finished off entirely by his hand. 17 And he shall arrange his face to enter in the strength of all his kingdom, and [2upright 1all] with him; thus he shall do. And the daughter of women he will give to him to corrupt her. But in no way shall she remain, and [2not 4to him 1she will 3be]. 18 And he shall turn his face unto the islands, and shall seize many. And he will cause [2to cease 1rulers] their scorning, only his scorning shall return to him. 19 And he shall turn his face unto the strength of his land. And he shall weaken, and shall fall, and shall not be found. 20 And shall rise up from out of his root a plant of a kingdom, unto his preparation, casting aside, exacting glory of the kingdom. And in those days he shall be broken, and not in faces, nor in war. 21 One shall stand upon his preparation, who was treated with contempt, and they did not give unto him glory of the kingdom. And he shall come in prosperity, and he shall prevail over a kingdom by a slip. 22 And the arms of the one inundating shall be flooded from his face, and they shall be broken; even the one taking the lead of the covenant. 23 And because of the interminglings with him he shall deal in treachery. And he shall ascend, and shall excel in strength over him by a little nation. 24 And in prosperity and in plentiful places he shall come; and he shall do what [2did not do 1his fathers], and the fathers of his fathers. Plunder, and spoils, and substance, [2to them 1he will disperse]. And against Egypt he will devise his devices for a time. 25 And [2shall be awakened 1his strength], and his heart against the king of the south with [2force 1a great]; and the king of the south shall join together in war, and in [2power 1a great], even in strength exceedingly. And he shall not stand, for they shall devise [2against 3him 1devices]. 26 And they shall eat the things necessary of his, and they shall break him, and forces shall break up, and [3shall fall 2slain 1many]. 27 And both the kings -- their hearts are for wickedness, and at [2table 1one 4lies 3they shall speak], and it shall not straighten out, for the end is for a time. 28 And he shall return unto his land with [2substance 1much], and his heart against [2covenant 1holy]. And he shall act, and he shall return unto his land. 29 In the time he shall return, and he shall come in the south, and it will not be as the first and the last. 30 And they shall enter in it, even the ones coming forth, the Chittim. And he shall be humbled, and he shall return, and he shall be enraged against [2covenant 1holy]; and he shall act, and he shall return, and he shall perceive with the ones forsaking [2covenant 1holy].
The Sanctuary of the Might Profaned31 And [3arms 1from 2him] shall rise up, and shall profane the sanctuary of the might. And they shall change over the perpetual sacrifice, and shall offer [2abomination 1an obliterating]. 32 And the ones acting lawlessly [2a covenant 1shall bring upon] by a slip. And a people knowing his God shall grow strong, and shall act. 33 And the discerning of the people shall perceive in many things, and they shall be weak by the broadsword, and by flame, and by captivity, and by ravaging of days. 34 And in the weakening of them they shall be helped [2help 1with a little], and [2shall be added 3unto 4them 1many] by a slip. 35 And of the ones perceiving shall weaken, to purify them by fire, and to choose, and to be uncovered until the time of the end. For it is still for a time.
The Wicked King36 And he shall do according to his will; and the king shall be exalted, and magnified over every god, and over the God of gods. And he shall speak pompous words, and shall prosper until of which time [3should be completed 1the 2wrath]. For unto completion it is coming to pass. 37 And unto all gods of his fathers he will not take notice, nor the desire of women; and concerning every god he will not take notice; for above all he will be magnified. 38 And [2a god 3of fortress 4at 5his place 1he will glorify]. And a god whom [2knew not 1his fathers] he shall glorify with gold, and silver, and [2stone 1precious], and with desirable things. 39 And he shall act in the fortresses of refuge with a strange god, of which ever he should recognize. And he shall multiply glory, and shall submit to them many; and the land he shall divide by gifts. 40 And in [2time 1end] he will mix horns with the king of the south; and [4shall be gathered together 5unto 6him 1the king 2of the 3north] with chariots, and with horsemen, and with [2ships 1many]. And he shall enter into the land, and he shall break and go by. 41 And he shall enter into the land of glory, and many shall be weakened. And these shall be delivered from out of his hand -- Edom and Moab, and the sovereignty of the sons of Ammon. 42 And he shall stretch out his hand upon the land; and the land of Egypt will not be for deliverance. 43 And he shall dominate by the concealed things of gold and of silver, and in all the desirable things of Egypt, and of the Libyans, and Ethiopians, in their fortresses. 44 And hearings shall disturb him from out of the east, and the north. And he shall come in rage with many to obliterate, and to devote [2to consumption 1many]. 45 And he shall pitch his tent of a royal pavilion between the seas, in [2mountain 3of glory 1the holy]. And he shall come unto his parts, and there shall be the one rescuing him.
