Unchecked Copy BoxDan 7:8 - “I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

Its wheels a burning fire;

A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.

Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;

And shall subdue three kings.

Shall persecute[fn] the saints of the Most High,
And shall intend to change times and law.

For a time and times and half a time.

And they shall take away his dominion,
To consume and destroy it forever.

Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High.
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’
