Daniel 7


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.
7:2 Daniel spoke and said, I saw in my vision by night, and
 behold, the four winds of heaven strove upon the great sea.
7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from
 another.
7:4 The first [was] like a lion, and had eagles' wings: I beheld
 till its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the
 earth, and made to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's
 heart was given to it.
7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like a bear, and it
 raised itself on one side, and [it had] three ribs in the mouth
 of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus to it, Arise,
 devour much flesh.
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.
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 broke in pieces, and
 stamped the residue with its feet: and it [was] diverse from
 all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had ten horns.
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 a man, and a mouth speaking great things.
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.
7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him:
 thousand thousands ministered to him, and ten thousand times
 ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set and the
 books were opened.
7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which
 the horn spoke: I beheld [even] till the beast was slain, and
 his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
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.
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.
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.
7:15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of [my]
 body, and the visions of my head troubled me.
7:16 I came near to 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.
7:17 These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings,
 [which] shall arise out of the earth.
7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and
 possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
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,
 broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
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 spoke very great things,
 whose look [was] more stout than his fellows.
7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and
 prevailed against them;
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.
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.
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.
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.
7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his
 dominion to consume and to destroy [it] to the end.
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.
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.
