Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:1 - In the third year of the reign of King Belshaz'zar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:2 - And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the capital, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in the vision, and I was at the river U'lai.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:3 - I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the river. It had two horns; and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:4 - I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward; no beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power; he did as he pleased and magnified himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:5 - As I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:6 - He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the river, and he ran at him in his mighty wrath.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:7 - I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns; and the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled upon him; and there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:8 - Then the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly; but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:9 - Out of one of them came forth a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:10 - It grew great, even to the host of heaven; and some of the host of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled upon them.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:11 - It magnified itself, even up to the Prince of the host; and the continual burnt offering was taken away from him, and the place of his sanctuary was overthrown.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:12 - And the host was given over to it together with the continual burnt offering through transgression; and truth was cast down to the ground, and the horn acted and prospered.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:13 - Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to the one that spoke, "For how long is the vision concerning the continual burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled under foot?"

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:14 - And he said to him, "For two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:15 - When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it; and behold, there stood before me one having the appearance of a man.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:16 - And I heard a man's voice between the banks of the U'lai, and it called, "Gabriel, make this man understand the vision."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:17 - So he came near where I stood; and when he came, I was frightened and fell upon my face. But he said to me, "Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:18 - As he was speaking to me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face to the ground; but he touched me and set me on my feet.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:19 - He said, "Behold, I will make known to you what shall be at the latter end of the indignation; for it pertains to the appointed time of the end.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:20 - As for the ram which you saw with the two horns, these are the kings of Media and Persia.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:21 - And the he-goat is the king of Greece; and the great horn between his eyes is the first king.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:22 - As for the horn that was broken, in place of which four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise from his nation, but not with his power.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:23 - And at the latter end of their rule, when the transgressors have reached their full measure, a king of bold countenance, one who understands riddles, shall arise.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:24 - His power shall be great, and he shall cause fearful destruction, and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people of the saints.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:25 - By his cunning he shall make deceit prosper under his hand, and in his own mind he shall magnify himself. Without warning he shall destroy many; and he shall even rise up against the Prince of princes; but, by no human hand, he shall be broken.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:26 - The vision of the evenings and the mornings which has been told is true; but seal up the vision, for it pertains to many days hence."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 8:27 - And I, Daniel, was overcome and lay sick for some days; then I rose and went about the king's business; but I was appalled by the vision and did not understand it.
