8:1 In the third [H7969] year [H8141] of the reign [H4438] of king [H4428] Belshazzar [H1112] a vision [H2377] appeared [H7200] unto me, [even unto] me Daniel [H1840] , after [H310] that which appeared [H7200] unto me at the first [H8462] .
8:2 And I saw [H7200] in a vision [H2377] ; and it came to pass, when I saw [H7200] , that I [was] at Shushan [H7800] [in] the palace [H1002] , which [is] in the province [H4082] of Elam [H5867] ; and I saw [H7200] in a vision [H2377] , and I was by the river [H180] of Ulai [H195] .
8:3 Then I lifted up [H5375] mine eyes [H5869] , and saw [H7200] , and, behold, there stood [H5975] before [H6440] the river [H180] a [H259] ram [H352] which had [two] horns [H7161] : and the [two] horns [H7161] [were] high [H1364] ; but one [H259] [was] higher [H1364] than the other [H8145] , and the higher [H1364] came up [H5927] last [H314] .(the other: Heb. the second)
8:4 I saw [H7200] the ram [H352] pushing [H5055] westward [H3220] , and northward [H6828] , and southward [H5045] ; so that no beasts [H2416] might stand [H5975] before [H6440] him, neither [was there any] that could deliver [H5337] out of his hand [H3027] ; but he did [H6213] according to his will [H7522] , and became great [H1431] .
8:5 And as I was considering [H995] , behold, an he [H5795] goat [H6842] came [H935] from the west [H4628] on the face [H6440] of the whole earth [H776] , and touched [H5060] not the ground [H776] : and the goat [H6842] [had] a notable [H2380] horn [H7161] between his eyes [H5869] .(touched: or, none touched him in the earth)(a notable: Heb. a horn of sight)
8:6 And he came [H935] to the ram [H352] that had [H1167] [two] horns [H7161] , which I had seen [H7200] standing [H5975] before [H6440] the river [H180] , and ran [H7323] unto him in the fury [H2534] of his power [H3581] .
8:7 And I saw [H7200] him come [H5060] close unto [H681] the ram [H352] , and he was moved with choler [H4843] against him, and smote [H5221] the ram [H352] , and brake [H7665] his two [H8147] horns [H7161] : and there was no power [H3581] in the ram [H352] to stand [H5975] before [H6440] him, but he cast him down [H7993] to the ground [H776] , and stamped [H7429] upon him: and there was none that could deliver [H5337] the ram [H352] out of his hand [H3027] .
8:8 Therefore the he [H6842] goat [H5795] waxed very [H3966] great [H1431] : and when he was strong [H6105] , the great [H1419] horn [H7161] was broken [H7665] ; and for it came up [H5927] four [H702] notable ones [H2380] toward the four [H702] winds [H7307] of heaven [H8064] .
8:9 And out of one [H259] of them came forth [H3318] a little [H4704] horn [H7161] , which waxed exceeding [H3499] great [H1431] , toward the south [H5045] , and toward the east [H4217] , and toward the pleasant [H6643] [land].
8:10 And it waxed great [H1431] , [even] to the host [H6635] of heaven [H8064] ; and it cast down [H5307] [some] of the host [H6635] and of the stars [H3556] to the ground [H776] , and stamped [H7429] upon them.(to the host: or, against the host)
8:11 Yea, he magnified [H1431] [himself] even to the prince [H8269] of the host [H6635] , and by him the daily [H8548] [sacrifice] was taken away [H7311] [H7311] , and the place [H4349] of his sanctuary [H4720] was cast down [H7993] .(to: or, against)(by him: or, from him)
8:12 And an host [H6635] was given [H5414] [him] against the daily [H8548] [sacrifice] by reason of transgression [H6588] , and it cast down [H7993] the truth [H571] to the ground [H776] ; and it practised [H6213] , and prospered [H6743] .(an host: or, the host was given over for the transgression against the daily sacrifice)
8:13 Then I heard [H8085] one [H259] saint [H6918] speaking [H1696] , and another [H259] saint [H6918] said [H559] unto that certain [H6422] [saint] which spake [H1696] , How long [shall be] the vision [H2377] [concerning] the daily [H8548] [sacrifice], and the transgression [H6588] of desolation [H8074] , to give [H5414] both the sanctuary [H6944] and the host [H6635] to be trodden under foot [H4823] ?(that: or, the numberer of secrets, or, the wonderful numberer: Heb. Palmoni)(of: or, making desolate)
8:14 And he said [H559] unto me, Unto two thousand [H505] and three [H7969] hundred [H3967] days [H6153] [H1242] ; then shall the sanctuary [H6944] be cleansed [H6663] .(days: Heb. evening morning)(cleansed: Heb. justified)
8:15 And it came to pass, when I, [even] I Daniel [H1840] , had seen [H7200] the vision [H2377] , and sought [H1245] for the meaning [H998] , then, behold, there stood [H5975] before me as the appearance [H4758] of a man [H1397] .
8:16 And I heard [H8085] a man's [H120] voice [H6963] between [the banks of] Ulai [H195] , which called [H7121] , and said [H559] , Gabriel [H1403] , make this [H1975] [man] to understand [H995] the vision [H4758] .
8:17 So he came [H935] near [H681] where I stood [H5977] : and when he came [H935] , I was afraid [H1204] , and fell [H5307] upon my face [H6440] : but he said [H559] unto me, Understand [H995] , O son [H1121] of man [H120] : for at the time [H6256] of the end [H7093] [shall be] the vision [H2377] .
8:18 Now as he was speaking [H1696] with me, I was in a deep sleep [H7290] on my face [H6440] toward the ground [H776] : but he touched [H5060] me, and set [H5975] me upright [H5977] .(set: Heb. made me stand upon my standing)
8:19 And he said [H559] , Behold, I will make thee know [H3045] what shall be in the last end [H319] of the indignation [H2195] : for at the time appointed [H4150] the end [H7093] [shall be].
8:20 The ram [H352] which thou sawest [H7200] having [H1167] [two] horns [H7161] [are] the kings [H4428] of Media [H4074] and Persia [H6539] .
8:21 And the rough [H8163] goat [H6842] [is] the king [H4428] of Grecia [H3120] : and the great [H1419] horn [H7161] that [is] between his eyes [H5869] [is] the first [H7223] king [H4428] .
8:22 Now that being broken [H7665] , whereas four [H702] stood up [H5975] for it, four [H702] kingdoms [H4438] shall stand up [H5975] out of the nation [H1471] , but not in his power [H3581] .
8:23 And in the latter time [H319] of their kingdom [H4438] , when the transgressors [H6586] are come to the full [H8552] , a king [H4428] of fierce [H5794] countenance [H6440] , and understanding [H995] dark sentences [H2420] , shall stand up [H5975] .(are: Heb. are accomplished)
8:24 And his power [H3581] shall be mighty [H6105] , but not by his own power [H3581] : and he shall destroy [H7843] wonderfully [H6381] , and shall prosper [H6743] , and practise [H6213] , and shall destroy [H7843] the mighty [H6099] and the holy [H6918] people [H5971] .(holy: Heb. people of the holy ones)
8:25 And through his policy [H7922] also he shall cause craft [H4820] to prosper [H6743] in his hand [H3027] ; and he shall magnify [H1431] [himself] in his heart [H3824] , and by peace [H7962] shall destroy [H7843] many [H7227] : he shall also stand up [H5975] against the Prince [H8269] of princes [H8269] ; but he shall be broken [H7665] without [H657] hand [H3027] .(peace: or, prosperity)
8:26 And the vision [H4758] of the evening [H6153] and the morning [H1242] which was told [H559] [is] true [H571] : wherefore shut thou up [H5640] the vision [H2377] ; for it [shall be] for many [H7227] days [H3117] .
8:27 And I Daniel [H1840] fainted [H1961] , and was sick [H2470] [certain] days [H3117] ; afterward I rose up [H6965] , and did [H6213] the king's [H4428] business [H4399] ; and I was astonished [H8074] at the vision [H4758] , but none understood [H995] [it].
