Daniel 11


1  Also I589 in the first259 year8141 of Darius1867 the Mede,4075 even I, stood5975 to confirm2388 and to strengthen4581 him.

2  And now6258 will I show5046 thee the truth.571 Behold,2009 there shall stand up5975 yet5750 three7969 kings4428 in Persia;6539 and the fourth7243 shall be far richer6238 1419 6239 than they all:4480 3605 and by his strength2393 through his riches6239 he shall stir up5782 all3605 against854 the realm4438 of Greece.3120

3  And a mighty1368 king4428 shall stand up,5975 that shall rule4910 with great7227 dominion,4474 and do6213 according to his will.7522

4  And when he shall stand up,5975 his kingdom4438 shall be broken,7665 and shall be divided2673 toward the four702 winds7307 of heaven;8064 and not3808 to his posterity,319 nor3808 according to his dominion4915 which834 he ruled:4910 for3588 his kingdom4438 shall be plucked up,5428 even for others312 beside4480 905 those.428

5  And the king4428 of the south5045 shall be strong,2388 and one of4480 his princes;8269 and he shall be strong2388 above5921 him, and have dominion;4910 his dominion4474 shall be a great7227 dominion.4474

6  And in the end7093 of years8141 they shall join themselves together;2266 for the king's4428 daughter1323 of the south5045 shall come935 to413 the king4428 of the north6828 to make6213 an agreement:4339 but she shall not3808 retain6113 the power3581 of the arm;2220 neither3808 shall he stand,5975 nor his arm:2220 but she1931 shall be given up,5414 and they that brought935 her, and he that begot3205 her, and he that strengthened2388 her in these times.6256

7  But out of a branch4480 5342 of her roots8328 shall one stand up5975 in his estate,3653 which shall come935 with413 an army,2428 and shall enter935 into the fortress4581 of the king4428 of the north,6828 and shall deal6213 against them, and shall prevail:2388

8  And shall also1571 carry935 captives7628 into Egypt4714 their gods,430 with5973 their princes,5257 and with5973 their precious2532 vessels3627 of silver3701 and of gold;2091 and he1931 shall continue5975 more years8141 than the king4480 4428 of the north.6828

9  So the king4428 of the south5045 shall come935 into his kingdom,4438 and shall return7725 into413 his own land.127

10  But his sons1121 shall be stirred up,1624 and shall assemble622 a multitude1995 of great7227 forces:2428 and one shall certainly come,935 935 and overflow,7857 and pass through:5674 then shall he return,7725 and be stirred up,1624 even to5704 his fortress.4581

11  And the king4428 of the south5045 shall be moved with anger,4843 and shall come forth3318 and fight3898 with5973 him, even with5973 the king4428 of the north:6828 and he shall set forth5975 a great7227 multitude;1995 but the multitude1995 shall be given5414 into his hand.3027

12  And when he hath taken away5375 the multitude,1995 his heart3824 shall be lifted up;7311 and he shall cast down5307 many ten thousands:7239 but he shall not3808 be strengthened5810 by it.

13  For the king4428 of the north6828 shall return,7725 and shall set forth5975 a multitude1995 greater7227 than4480 the former,7223 and shall certainly come935 935 after7093 certain6256 years8141 with a great1419 army2428 and with much7227 riches.7399

14  And in those1992 times6256 there shall many7227 stand up5975 against5921 the king4428 of the south:5045 also the robbers1121 6530 of thy people5971 shall exalt themselves5375 to establish5975 the vision;2377 but they shall fall.3782

15  So the king4428 of the north6828 shall come,935 and cast up8210 a mount,5550 and take3920 the most fenced4013 cities:5892 and the arms2220 of the south5045 shall not3808 withstand,5975 neither his chosen4005 people,5971 neither369 shall there be any strength3581 to withstand.5975

16  But he that cometh935 against413 him shall do6213 according to his own will,7522 and none369 shall stand5975 before6440 him: and he shall stand5975 in the glorious6643 land,776 which by his hand3027 shall be consumed.3615

17  He shall also set7760 his face6440 to enter935 with the strength8633 of his whole3605 kingdom,4438 and upright ones3477 with5973 him; thus shall he do:6213 and he shall give5414 him the daughter1323 of women,802 corrupting7843 her: but she shall not3808 stand5975 on his side, neither3808 be1961 for him.

18  After this shall he turn7725 his face6440 unto the isles,339 and shall take3920 many:7227 but a prince7101 for his own behalf shall cause the reproach2781 offered by him to cease;7673 without1115 his own reproach2781 he shall cause it to turn7725 upon him.

19  Then he shall turn7725 his face6440 toward the fort4581 of his own land:776 but he shall stumble3782 and fall,5307 and not3808 be found.4672

20  Then shall stand up5975 in5921 his estate3653 a raiser5674 of taxes5065 in the glory1925 of the kingdom:4438 but within few259 days3117 he shall be destroyed,7665 neither3808 in anger,639 nor3808 in battle.4421

21  And in5921 his estate3653 shall stand up5975 a vile person,959 to5921 whom they shall not3808 give5414 the honor1935 of the kingdom:4438 but he shall come in935 peaceably,7962 and obtain2388 the kingdom4438 by flatteries.2519

22  And with the arms2220 of a flood7858 shall they be overflown7857 from before4480 6440 him, and shall be broken;7665 yea, also1571 the prince5057 of the covenant.1285

23  And after4480 the league2266 made with413 him he shall work6213 deceitfully:4820 for he shall come up,5927 and shall become strong6105 with a small4592 people.1471

24  He shall enter935 peaceably7962 even upon the fattest places4924 of the province;4082 and he shall do6213 that which834 his fathers1 have not3808 done,6213 nor his fathers'1 fathers;1 he shall scatter967 among them the prey,961 and spoil,7998 and riches:7399 yea, and he shall forecast2803 his devices4284 against5921 the strongholds,4013 even for5704 a time.6256

25  And he shall stir up5782 his power3581 and his courage3824 against5921 the king4428 of the south5045 with a great1419 army;2428 and the king4428 of the south5045 shall be stirred up1624 to battle4421 with a very5704 3966 great1419 and mighty6099 army;2428 but he shall not3808 stand:5975 for3588 they shall forecast2803 devices4284 against5921 him.

26  Yea, they that feed398 of the portion of his meat6598 shall destroy7665 him, and his army2428 shall overflow:7857 and many7227 shall fall down5307 slain.2491

27  And both8147 these kings'4428 hearts3824 shall be to do mischief,4827 and they shall speak1696 lies3577 at5921 one259 table;7979 but it shall not3808 prosper:6743 for3588 yet5750 the end7093 shall be at the time appointed.4150

28  Then shall he return7725 into his land776 with great1419 riches;7399 and his heart3824 shall be against5921 the holy6944 covenant;1285 and he shall do6213 exploits, and return7725 to his own land.776

29  At the time appointed4150 he shall return,7725 and come935 toward the south;5045 but it shall not3808 be1961 as the former,7223 or as the latter.314

30  For the ships6716 of Chittim3794 shall come935 against him: therefore he shall be grieved,3512 and return,7725 and have indignation2194 against5921 the holy6944 covenant:1285 so shall he do;6213 he shall even return,7725 and have intelligence995 with5921 them that forsake5800 the holy6944 covenant.1285

31  And arms2220 shall stand5975 on his part,4480 and they shall pollute2490 the sanctuary4720 of strength,4581 and shall take away5493 the daily8548 sacrifice, and they shall place5414 the abomination8251 that maketh desolate.8074

32  And such as do wickedly against7561 the covenant1285 shall he corrupt2610 by flatteries:2514 but the people5971 that do know3045 their God430 shall be strong,2388 and do6213 exploits.

33  And they that understand7919 among the people5971 shall instruct995 many:7227 yet they shall fall3782 by the sword,2719 and by flame,3852 by captivity,7628 and by spoil,961 many days.3117

34  Now when they shall fall,3782 they shall be helped5826 with a little4592 help:5828 but many7227 shall cleave3867 to5921 them with flatteries.2519

35  And some of4480 them of understanding7919 shall fall,3782 to try6884 them, and to purge,1305 and to make them white,3835 even to5704 the time6256 of the end:7093 because3588 it is yet5750 for a time appointed.4150

36  And the king4428 shall do6213 according to his will;7522 and he shall exalt himself,7311 and magnify himself1431 above5921 every3605 god,410 and shall speak1696 marvelous things6381 against5921 the God410 of gods,410 and shall prosper6743 till5704 the indignation2195 be accomplished:3615 for3588 that that is determined2782 shall be done.6213

37  Neither shall he regard5921 3808 995 the God430 of his fathers,1 nor the desire2532 of women,802 nor regard any3605 3808 995 god:433 for3588 he shall magnify himself1431 above5921 all.3605

38  But in5921 his estate3653 shall he honor3513 the God433 of forces:4581 and a god433 whom834 his fathers1 knew3045 not3808 shall he honor3513 with gold,2091 and silver,3701 and with precious3368 stones,68 and pleasant things.2530

39  Thus shall he do6213 in the most strong holds4013 4581 with5973 a strange5236 god,433 whom834 he shall acknowledge5234 and increase7235 with glory:3519 and he shall cause them to rule4910 over many,7227 and shall divide2505 the land127 for gain.4242

40  And at the time6256 of the end7093 shall the king4428 of the south5045 push5055 at5973 him: and the king4428 of the north6828 shall come against him like a whirlwind,8175 5921 with chariots,7393 and with horsemen,6571 and with many7227 ships;591 and he shall enter935 into the countries,776 and shall overflow7857 and pass over.5674

41  He shall enter935 also into the glorious6643 land,776 and many7227 countries shall be overthrown:3782 but these428 shall escape4422 out of his hand,4480 3027 even Edom,123 and Moab,4124 and the chief7225 of the children1121 of Ammon.5983

42  He shall stretch forth7971 his hand3027 also upon the countries:776 and the land776 of Egypt4714 shall not3808 escape.1961 6413

43  But he shall have power4910 over the treasures4362 of gold2091 and of silver,3701 and over all3605 the precious things2530 of Egypt:4714 and the Libyans3864 and the Ethiopians3569 shall be at his steps.4703

44  But tidings8052 out of the east4480 4217 and out of the north4480 6828 shall trouble926 him: therefore he shall go forth3318 with great1419 fury2534 to destroy,8045 and utterly to make away2763 many.7227

45  And he shall plant5193 the tabernacles168 of his palace643 between996 the seas3220 in the glorious6643 holy6944 mountain;2022 yet he shall come935 to5704 his end,7093 and none369 shall help5826 him.


1 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ πρώτῳ Κύρου τοῦ βασιλέως εἶπέν μοι ἐνισχῦσαι καὶ ἀνδρίζεσθαι

2 καὶ νῦν ἦλθον τὴν ἀλήθειαν ὑποδεῖξαί σοι ἰδοὺ τρεῖς βασιλεῖς ἀνθεστήκασιν ἐν τῇ Περσίδι καὶ ὁ τέταρτος πλουτήσει πλοῦτον μέγαν παρὰ πάντας καὶ ἐν τῷ κατισχῦσαι αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ πλούτῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπαναστήσεται παντὶ βασιλεῖ Ἑλλήνων

3 καὶ στήσεται βασιλεὺς δυνατὸς καὶ κυριεύσει κυριείας πολλῆς καὶ ποιήσει καθὼς ἂν βούληται

4 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀναστῆναι αὐτὸν συντριβήσεται ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ καὶ μερισθήσεται εἰς τοὺς τέσσαρας ἀνέμους τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐ κατὰ τὴν ἀλκὴν αὐτοῦ οὐδὲ κατὰ τὴν κυριείαν αὐτοῦ ἣν ἐδυνάστευσε ὅτι ἀποσταθήσεται ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ καὶ ἑτέρους διδάξει ταῦτα

5 καὶ ἐνισχύσει βασιλείαν Αἰγύπτου καὶ εἷς ἐκ τῶν δυναστῶν κατισχύσει αὐτὸν καὶ δυναστεύσει δυναστεία μεγάλη ἡ δυναστεία αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ εἰς συντέλειαν ἐνιαυτῶν ἄξει αὐτούς καὶ εἰσελεύσεται βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τὴν βορρᾶ ποιήσασθαι συνθήκας καὶ οὐ μὴ κατισχύσῃ ὅτι ὁ βραχίων αὐτοῦ οὐ στήσει ἰσχύν καὶ ὁ βραχίων αὐτοῦ ναρκήσει καὶ τῶν συμπορευομένων μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ μενεῖ εἰς ὥρας

7 καὶ ἀναστήσεται φυτὸν ἐκ τῆς ῥίζης αὐτοῦ καθ᾽ ἑαυτόν καὶ ἥξει ἐπὶ τὴν δύναμιν αὐτοῦ ἐν ἰσχύι αὐτοῦ βασιλεὺς βορρᾶ καὶ ποιήσει ταραχὴν καὶ κατισχύσει

8 καὶ τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν καταστρέψει μετὰ τῶν χωνευτῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ὄχλους αὐτῶν μετὰ τῶν σκευῶν τῶν ἐπιθυμημάτων αὐτῶν τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ ἀποίσουσιν εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ ἔσται ἔτος βασιλεῖ βορρᾶ

9 καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς βασιλείαν Αἰγύπτου ἡμέρας καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐρεθισθήσεται καὶ συνάξει συναγωγὴν ὄχλου πολλοῦ καὶ εἰσελεύσεται κατ᾽ αὐτὴν κατασύρων παρελεύσεται καὶ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ παροξυνθήσεται ἐπὶ πολύ

11 καὶ ὀργισθήσεται βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου καὶ πολεμήσει μετὰ βασιλέως βορρᾶ καὶ παραδοθήσεται ἡ συναγωγὴ εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ

12 καὶ λήψεται τὴν συναγωγήν καὶ ὑψωθήσεται ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ καὶ ταράξει πολλοὺς καὶ οὐ μὴ φοβηθῇ

13 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει βασιλεὺς βορρᾶ καὶ συνάξει πόλεως συναγωγὴν μείζονα παρὰ τὴν πρώτην κατὰ συντέλειαν καιροῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς αὐτὴν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἐν ὄχλῳ πολλῷ καὶ ἐν χρήμασι πολλοῖς

14 καὶ ἐν τοῖς καιροῖς ἐκείνοις διάνοιαι ἀναστήσονται ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀνοικοδομήσει τὰ πεπτωκότα τοῦ ἔθνους σου καὶ ἀναστήσεται εἰς τὸ ἀναστῆσαι τὴν προφητείαν καὶ προσκόψουσι

15 καὶ ἐπελεύσεται βασιλεὺς βορρᾶ καὶ ἐπιστρέψει τὰ δόρατα αὐτοῦ καὶ λήψεται τὴν πόλιν τὴν ὀχυράν καὶ οἱ βραχίονες βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου στήσονται μετὰ τῶν δυναστῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται αὐτῷ ἰσχὺς εἰς τὸ ἀντιστῆναι αὐτῷ

16 καὶ ποιήσει ὁ εἰσπορευόμενος ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν κατὰ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἀνθεστηκὼς ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ καὶ στήσεται ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ καὶ ἐπιτελεσθήσεται πάντα ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ δώσει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπελθεῖν βίᾳ πᾶν τὸ ἔργον αὐτοῦ καὶ συνθήκας μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ποιήσεται καὶ θυγατέρα ἀνθρώπου δώσει αὐτῷ εἰς τὸ φθεῖραι αὐτήν καὶ οὐ πείσεται καὶ οὐκ ἔσται

18 καὶ δώσει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ λήψεται πολλοὺς καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ὀργὴν ὀνειδισμοῦ αὐτῶν ἐν ὅρκῳ κατὰ τὸν ὀνειδισμὸν αὐτοῦ

19 ἐπιστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ κατισχῦσαι τὴν χώραν αὐτοῦ καὶ προσκόψει καὶ πεσεῖται καὶ οὐχ εὑρεθήσεται

20 καὶ ἀναστήσεται ἐκ τῆς ῥίζης αὐτοῦ φυτὸν βασιλείας εἰς ἀνάστασιν ἀνὴρ τύπτων δόξαν βασιλέως καὶ ἐν ἡμέραις ἐσχάταις συντριβήσεται καὶ οὐκ ἐν ὀργῇ οὐδὲ ἐν πολέμῳ

21 καὶ ἀναστήσεται ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ εὐκαταφρόνητος καὶ οὐ δοθήσεται ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν δόξα βασιλέως καὶ ἥξει ἐξάπινα κατισχύσει βασιλεὺς ἐν κληροδοσίᾳ αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ τοὺς βραχίονας τοὺς συντριβέντας συντρίψει ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ

23 καὶ μετὰ τῆς διαθήκης καὶ δήμου συνταγέντος μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ποιήσει ψεῦδος καὶ ἐπὶ ἔθνος ἰσχυρὸν ἐν ὀλιγοστῷ ἔθνει

24 ἐξάπινα ἐρημώσει πόλιν καὶ ποιήσει ὅσα οὐκ ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ οὐδὲ οἱ πατέρες τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ προνομὴν καὶ σκῦλα καὶ χρήματα αὐτοῖς δώσει καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν τὴν ἰσχυρὰν διανοηθήσεται καὶ οἱ λογισμοὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς μάτην

25 καὶ ἐγερθήσεται ἡ ἰσχὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου ἐν ὄχλῳ πολλῷ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου ἐρεθισθήσεται εἰς πόλεμον ἐν ὄχλῳ ἰσχυρῷ σφόδρα λίαν καὶ οὐ στήσεται ὅτι διανοηθήσεται ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν διανοίᾳ

26 καὶ καταναλώσουσιν αὐτὸν μέριμναι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀποστρέψουσιν αὐτόν καὶ παρελεύσεται καὶ κατασυριεῖ καὶ πεσοῦνται τραυματίαι πολλοί

27 καὶ δύο βασιλεῖς μόνοι δειπνήσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ καὶ ἐπὶ μιᾶς τραπέζης φάγονται καὶ ψευδολογήσουσι καὶ οὐκ εὐοδωθήσονται ἔτι γὰρ συντέλεια εἰς καιρόν

28 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει εἰς τὴν χώραν αὐτοῦ ἐν χρήμασι πολλοῖς καὶ ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν διαθήκην τοῦ ἁγίου ποιήσει καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ἐπὶ τὴν χώραν αὐτοῦ

29 εἰς καιρόν καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὡς ἡ πρώτη καὶ ἡ ἐσχάτη

30 καὶ ἥξουσι Ῥωμαῖοι καὶ ἐξώσουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐμβριμήσονται αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ ὀργισθήσεται ἐπὶ τὴν διαθήκην τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ ποιήσει καὶ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ διανοηθήσεται ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπον τὴν διαθήκην τοῦ ἁγίου

31 καὶ βραχίονες παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ στήσονται καὶ μιανοῦσι τὸ ἅγιον τοῦ φόβου καὶ ἀποστήσουσι τὴν θυσίαν καὶ δώσουσι βδέλυγμα ἐρημώσεως

32 καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις διαθήκης μιανοῦσιν ἐν σκληρῷ λαῷ καὶ ὁ δῆμος ὁ γινώσκων ταῦτα κατισχύσουσι καὶ ποιήσουσι

33 καὶ ἐννοούμενοι τοῦ ἔθνους συνήσουσιν εἰς πολλούς καὶ προσκόψουσι ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ παλαιωθήσονται ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ καὶ ἐν προνομῇ ἡμερῶν κηλιδωθήσονται

34 καὶ ὅταν συντρίβωνται συνάξουσιν ἰσχὺν βραχεῖαν καὶ ἐπισυναχθήσονται ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς πολλοὶ ἐπὶ πόλεως καὶ πολλοὶ ὡς ἐν κληροδοσίᾳ

35 καὶ ἐκ τῶν συνιέντων διανοηθήσονται εἰς τὸ καθαρίσαι ἑαυτοὺς καὶ εἰς τὸ ἐκλεγῆναι καὶ εἰς τὸ καθαρισθῆναι ἕως καιροῦ συντελείας ἔτι γὰρ καιρὸς εἰς ὥρας

36 καὶ ποιήσει κατὰ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ παροργισθήσεται καὶ ὑψωθήσεται ἐπὶ πάντα θεὸν καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν θεὸν τῶν θεῶν ἔξαλλα λαλήσει καὶ εὐοδωθήσεται ἕως ἂν συντελεσθῇ ἡ ὀργή εἰς αὐτὸν γὰρ συντέλεια γίνεται

37 καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς θεοὺς τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ προνοηθῇ καὶ ἐν ἐπιθυμίᾳ γυναικὸς οὐ μὴ προνοηθῇ ὅτι ἐν παντὶ ὑψωθήσεται καὶ ὑποταγήσεται αὐτῷ ἔθνη ἰσχυρά

38 ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ κινήσει καὶ θεόν ὃν οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ τιμήσει ἐν χρυσίῳ καὶ ἀργυρίῳ καὶ λίθῳ πολυτελεῖ καὶ ἐν ἐπιθυμήμασι

39 ποιήσει πόλεων καὶ εἰς ὀχύρωμα ἰσχυρὸν ἥξει μετὰ θεοῦ ἀλλοτρίου οὗ ἐὰν ἐπιγνῷ πληθυνεῖ δόξαν καὶ κατακυριεύσει αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πολὺ καὶ χώραν ἀπομεριεῖ εἰς δωρεάν

40 καὶ καθ᾽ ὥραν συντελείας συγκερατισθήσεται αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐποργισθήσεται αὐτῷ βασιλεὺς βορρᾶ ἐν ἅρμασι καὶ ἐν ἵπποις πολλοῖς καὶ ἐν πλοίοις πολλοῖς καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς χώραν Αἰγύπτου

41 καὶ ἐπελεύσεται εἰς τὴν χώραν μου

42 καὶ ἐν χώρᾳ Αἰγύπτου οὐκ ἔσται ἐν αὐτῇ διασῳζόμενος

43 καὶ κρατήσει τοῦ τόπου τοῦ χρυσίου καὶ τοῦ τόπου τοῦ ἀργυρίου καὶ πάσης τῆς ἐπιθυμίας Αἰγύπτου καὶ Λίβυες καὶ Αἰθίοπες ἔσονται ἐν τῷ ὄχλῳ αὐτοῦ

44 καὶ ἀκοὴ ταράξει αὐτὸν ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν καὶ βορρᾶ καὶ ἐξελεύσεται ἐν θυμῷ ἰσχυρῷ καὶ ῥομφαίᾳ ἀφανίσαι καὶ ἀποκτεῖναι πολλούς

45 καὶ στήσει αὐτοῦ τὴν σκηνὴν τότε ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν θαλασσῶν καὶ τοῦ ὄρους τῆς θελήσεως τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ ἥξει ὥρα τῆς συντελείας αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ βοηθῶν αὐτῷ


1 καὶ ἐγὼ ἐν ἔτει πρώτῳ Κύρου ἔστην εἰς κράτος καὶ ἰσχύν

2 καὶ νῦν ἀλήθειαν ἀναγγελῶ σοι ἰδοὺ ἔτι τρεῖς βασιλεῖς ἀναστήσονται ἐν τῇ Περσίδι καὶ ὁ τέταρτος πλουτήσει πλοῦτον μέγαν παρὰ πάντας καὶ μετὰ τὸ κρατῆσαι αὐτὸν τοῦ πλούτου αὐτοῦ ἐπαναστήσεται πάσαις βασιλείαις Ἑλλήνων

3 καὶ ἀναστήσεται βασιλεὺς δυνατὸς καὶ κυριεύσει κυριείας πολλῆς καὶ ποιήσει κατὰ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ ὡς ἂν στῇ ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ συντριβήσεται καὶ διαιρεθήσεται εἰς τοὺς τέσσαρας ἀνέμους τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ οὐκ εἰς τὰ ἔσχατα αὐτοῦ οὐδὲ κατὰ τὴν κυριείαν αὐτοῦ ἣν ἐκυρίευσεν ὅτι ἐκτιλήσεται ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ καὶ ἑτέροις ἐκτὸς τούτων

5 καὶ ἐνισχύσει ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ νότου καὶ εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων αὐτοῦ ἐνισχύσει ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν καὶ κυριεύσει κυριείαν πολλὴν ἐπ᾽ ἐξουσίας αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ μετὰ τὰ ἔτη αὐτοῦ συμμειγήσονται καὶ θυγάτηρ βασιλέως τοῦ νότου εἰσελεύσεται πρὸς βασιλέα τοῦ βορρᾶ τοῦ ποιῆσαι συνθήκας μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κρατήσει ἰσχύος βραχίονος καὶ οὐ στήσεται τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ καὶ παραδοθήσεται αὐτὴ καὶ οἱ φέροντες αὐτὴν καὶ ἡ νεᾶνις καὶ ὁ κατισχύων αὐτὴν ἐν τοῖς καιροῖς

7 καὶ στήσεται ἐκ τοῦ ἄνθους τῆς ῥίζης αὐτῆς τῆς ἑτοιμασίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἥξει πρὸς τὴν δύναμιν καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὰ ὑποστηρίγματα τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ βορρᾶ καὶ ποιήσει ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ κατισχύσει

8 καί γε τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν μετὰ τῶν χωνευτῶν αὐτῶν πᾶν σκεῦος ἐπιθυμητὸν αὐτῶν ἀργυρίου καὶ χρυσίου μετὰ αἰχμαλωσίας οἴσει εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ αὐτὸς στήσεται ὑπὲρ βασιλέα τοῦ βορρᾶ

9 καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ νότου καὶ ἀναστρέψει εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ συνάξουσιν ὄχλον δυνάμεων πολλῶν καὶ ἐλεύσεται ἐρχόμενος καὶ κατακλύζων καὶ παρελεύσεται καὶ καθίεται καὶ συμπροσπλακήσεται ἕως τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ

11 καὶ ἀγριανθήσεται βασιλεὺς τοῦ νότου καὶ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ πολεμήσει μετὰ βασιλέως τοῦ βορρᾶ καὶ στήσει ὄχλον πολύν καὶ παραδοθήσεται ὁ ὄχλος ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ

12 καὶ λήμψεται τὸν ὄχλον καὶ ὑψωθήσεται ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ καὶ καταβαλεῖ μυριάδας καὶ οὐ κατισχύσει

13 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει βασιλεὺς τοῦ βορρᾶ καὶ ἄξει ὄχλον πολὺν ὑπὲρ τὸν πρότερον καὶ εἰς τὸ τέλος τῶν καιρῶν ἐνιαυτῶν ἐπελεύσεται εἰσόδια ἐν δυνάμει μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν ὑπάρξει πολλῇ

14 καὶ ἐν τοῖς καιροῖς ἐκείνοις πολλοὶ ἐπαναστήσονται ἐπὶ βασιλέα τοῦ νότου καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν λοιμῶν τοῦ λαοῦ σου ἐπαρθήσονται τοῦ στῆσαι ὅρασιν καὶ ἀσθενήσουσιν

15 καὶ εἰσελεύσεται βασιλεὺς τοῦ βορρᾶ καὶ ἐκχεεῖ πρόσχωμα καὶ συλλήμψεται πόλεις ὀχυράς καὶ οἱ βραχίονες τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ νότου οὐ στήσονται καὶ ἀναστήσονται οἱ ἐκλεκτοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἰσχὺς τοῦ στῆναι

16 καὶ ποιήσει ὁ εἰσπορευόμενος πρὸς αὐτὸν κατὰ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἑστὼς κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ στήσεται ἐν γῇ τοῦ σαβι καὶ συντελεσθήσεται ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ τάξει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰσελθεῖν ἐν ἰσχύι πάσης τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐθεῖα πάντα μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ποιήσει καὶ θυγατέρα τῶν γυναικῶν δώσει αὐτῷ τοῦ διαφθεῖραι αὐτήν καὶ οὐ μὴ παραμείνῃ καὶ οὐκ αὐτῷ ἔσται

18 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰς νήσους καὶ συλλήμψεται πολλὰς καὶ καταπαύσει ἄρχοντας ὀνειδισμοῦ αὐτῶν πλὴν ὀνειδισμὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπιστρέψει αὐτῷ

19 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν ἰσχὺν τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀσθενήσει καὶ πεσεῖται καὶ οὐχ εὑρεθήσεται

20 καὶ ἀναστήσεται ἐκ τῆς ῥίζης αὐτοῦ φυτὸν βασιλείας ἐπὶ τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν αὐτοῦ παραβιβάζων πράσσων δόξαν βασιλείας καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις συντριβήσεται καὶ οὐκ ἐν προσώποις οὐδὲ ἐν πολέμῳ

21 στήσεται ἐπὶ τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν αὐτοῦ ἐξουδενώθη καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν δόξαν βασιλείας καὶ ἥξει ἐν εὐθηνίᾳ καὶ κατισχύσει βασιλείας ἐν ὀλισθρήμασιν

22 καὶ βραχίονες τοῦ κατακλύζοντος κατακλυσθήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ καὶ συντριβήσονται καὶ ἡγούμενος διαθήκης

23 καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν συναναμείξεων πρὸς αὐτὸν ποιήσει δόλον καὶ ἀναβήσεται καὶ ὑπερισχύσει αὐτοῦ ἐν ὀλίγῳ ἔθνει

24 καὶ ἐν εὐθηνίᾳ καὶ ἐν πίοσιν χώραις ἥξει καὶ ποιήσει ἃ οὐκ ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ πατέρες τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ προνομὴν καὶ σκῦλα καὶ ὕπαρξιν αὐτοῖς διασκορπιεῖ καὶ ἐπ᾽ Αἴγυπτον λογιεῖται λογισμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕως καιροῦ

25 καὶ ἐξεγερθήσεται ἡ ἰσχὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ βασιλέα τοῦ νότου ἐν δυνάμει μεγάλῃ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ νότου συνάψει πόλεμον ἐν δυνάμει μεγάλῃ καὶ ἰσχυρᾷ σφόδρα καὶ οὐ στήσεται ὅτι λογιοῦνται ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν λογισμούς

26 καὶ φάγονται τὰ δέοντα αὐτοῦ καὶ συντρίψουσιν αὐτόν καὶ δυνάμεις κατακλύσει καὶ πεσοῦνται τραυματίαι πολλοί

27 καὶ ἀμφότεροι οἱ βασιλεῖς αἱ καρδίαι αὐτῶν εἰς πονηρίαν καὶ ἐπὶ τραπέζῃ μιᾷ ψευδῆ λαλήσουσιν καὶ οὐ κατευθυνεῖ ὅτι ἔτι πέρας εἰς καιρόν

28 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ ἐν ὑπάρξει πολλῇ καὶ ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ διαθήκην ἁγίαν καὶ ποιήσει καὶ ἐπιστρέψει εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ

29 εἰς τὸν καιρὸν ἐπιστρέψει καὶ ἥξει ἐν τῷ νότῳ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὡς ἡ πρώτη καὶ ὡς ἡ ἐσχάτη

30 καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ἐν αὐτῷ οἱ ἐκπορευόμενοι Κίτιοι καὶ ταπεινωθήσεται καὶ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ θυμωθήσεται ἐπὶ διαθήκην ἁγίαν καὶ ποιήσει καὶ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ συνήσει ἐπὶ τοὺς καταλιπόντας διαθήκην ἁγίαν

31 καὶ σπέρματα ἐξ αὐτοῦ ἀναστήσονται καὶ βεβηλώσουσιν τὸ ἁγίασμα τῆς δυναστείας καὶ μεταστήσουσιν τὸν ἐνδελεχισμὸν καὶ δώσουσιν βδέλυγμα ἠφανισμένον

32 καὶ οἱ ἀνομοῦντες διαθήκην ἐπάξουσιν ἐν ὀλισθρήμασιν καὶ λαὸς γινώσκοντες θεὸν αὐτοῦ κατισχύσουσιν καὶ ποιήσουσιν

33 καὶ οἱ συνετοὶ τοῦ λαοῦ συνήσουσιν εἰς πολλά καὶ ἀσθενήσουσιν ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ἐν φλογὶ καὶ ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ καὶ ἐν διαρπαγῇ ἡμερῶν

34 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀσθενῆσαι αὐτοὺς βοηθηθήσονται βοήθειαν μικράν καὶ προστεθήσονται ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς πολλοὶ ἐν ὀλισθρήμασιν

35 καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν συνιέντων ἀσθενήσουσιν τοῦ πυρῶσαι αὐτοὺς καὶ τοῦ ἐκλέξασθαι καὶ τοῦ ἀποκαλυφθῆναι ἕως καιροῦ πέρας ὅτι ἔτι εἰς καιρόν

36 καὶ ποιήσει κατὰ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ καὶ ὑψωθήσεται ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ μεγαλυνθήσεται ἐπὶ πάντα θεὸν καὶ λαλήσει ὑπέρογκα καὶ κατευθυνεῖ μέχρις οὗ συντελεσθῇ ἡ ὀργή εἰς γὰρ συντέλειαν γίνεται

37 καὶ ἐπὶ πάντας θεοὺς τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ οὐ συνήσει καὶ ἐπὶ ἐπιθυμίαν γυναικῶν καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶν θεὸν οὐ συνήσει ὅτι ἐπὶ πάντας μεγαλυνθήσεται

38 καὶ θεὸν μαωζιν ἐπὶ τόπου αὐτοῦ δοξάσει καὶ θεόν ὃν οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ δοξάσει ἐν χρυσῷ καὶ ἀργύρῳ καὶ λίθῳ τιμίῳ καὶ ἐν ἐπιθυμήμασιν

39 καὶ ποιήσει τοῖς ὀχυρώμασιν τῶν καταφυγῶν μετὰ θεοῦ ἀλλοτρίου καὶ πληθυνεῖ δόξαν καὶ ὑποτάξει αὐτοῖς πολλοὺς καὶ γῆν διελεῖ ἐν δώροις

40 καὶ ἐν καιροῦ πέρατι συγκερατισθήσεται μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ νότου καὶ συναχθήσεται ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν βασιλεὺς τοῦ βορρᾶ ἐν ἅρμασιν καὶ ἐν ἱππεῦσιν καὶ ἐν ναυσὶν πολλαῖς καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ συντρίψει καὶ παρελεύσεται

41 καὶ εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν γῆν τοῦ σαβι καὶ πολλοὶ ἀσθενήσουσιν καὶ οὗτοι διασωθήσονται ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ Εδωμ καὶ Μωαβ καὶ ἀρχὴ υἱῶν Αμμων

42 καὶ ἐκτενεῖ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ γῆ Αἰγύπτου οὐκ ἔσται εἰς σωτηρίαν

43 καὶ κυριεύσει ἐν τοῖς ἀποκρύφοις τοῦ χρυσοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἀργύρου καὶ ἐν πᾶσιν ἐπιθυμητοῖς Αἰγύπτου καὶ Λιβύων καὶ Αἰθιόπων ἐν τοῖς ὀχυρώμασιν αὐτῶν

44 καὶ ἀκοαὶ καὶ σπουδαὶ ταράξουσιν αὐτὸν ἐξ ἀνατολῶν καὶ ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἥξει ἐν θυμῷ πολλῷ τοῦ ἀφανίσαι καὶ τοῦ ἀναθεματίσαι πολλούς

45 καὶ πήξει τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ εφαδανω ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν θαλασσῶν εἰς ὄρος σαβι ἅγιον καὶ ἥξει ἕως μέρους αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ ῥυόμενος αὐτόν

1 Ego autem ab anno primo Darii Medi stabam ut confortaretur et roboraretur.

2 Et nunc veritatem annuntiabo tibi. Ecce adhuc tres reges stabunt in Perside, et quartus ditabitur opibus nimiis super omnes: et cum invaluerit divitiis suis, concitabit omnes adversum regnum Græciæ.

3 Surget vero rex fortis, et dominabitur potestate multa, et faciet quod placuerit ei.

4 Et cum steterit, conteretur regnum ejus, et dividetur in quatuor ventos cæli: sed non in posteros ejus, neque secundum potentiam illius, qua dominatus est: lacerabitur enim regnum ejus etiam in externos, exceptis his.

5 Et confortabitur rex austri: et de principibus ejus prævalebit super eum, et dominabitur ditione: multa enim dominatio ejus.

6 Et post finem annorum fœderabuntur: filiaque regis austri veniet ad regem aquilonis facere amicitiam, et non obtinebit fortitudinem brachii, nec stabit semen ejus: et tradetur ipsa, et qui adduxerunt eam adolescentes ejus, et qui confortabant eam in temporibus.

7 Et stabit de germine radicum ejus plantatio: et veniet cum exercitu, et ingredietur provinciam regis aquilonis: et abutetur eis, et obtinebit.

8 Insuper et deos eorum, et sculptilia, vasa quoque pretiosa argenti et auri, captiva ducet in Ægyptum: ipse prævalebit adversus regem aquilonis.

9 Et intrabit in regnum rex austri, et revertetur ad terram suam.

10 Filii autem ejus provocabuntur, et congregabunt multitudinem exercituum plurimorum: et veniet properans, et inundans: et revertetur, et concitabitur, et congredietur cum robore ejus.

11 Et provocatus rex austri egredietur, et pugnabit adversus regem aquilonis, et præparabit multitudinem nimiam, et dabitur multitudo in manu ejus.

12 Et capiet multitudinem, et exaltabitur cor ejus, et dejiciet multa millia, sed non prævalebit.

13 Convertetur enim rex aquilonis, et præparabit multitudinem multo majorem quam prius: et in fine temporum annorumque veniet properans cum exercitu magno, et opibus nimiis.

14 Et in temporibus illis multi consurgent adversus regem austri: filii quoque prævaricatorum populi tui extollentur ut impleant visionem, et corruent.

15 Et venit rex aquilonis, et comportabit aggerem, et capiet urbes munitissimas: et brachia austri non sustinebunt, et consurgent electi ejus ad resistendum, et non erit fortitudo.

16 Et faciet veniens super eum juxta placitum suum, et non erit qui stet contra faciem ejus: et stabit in terra inclyta, et consumetur in manu ejus.

17 Et ponet faciem suam ut veniat ad tenendum universum regnum ejus, et recta faciet cum eo: et filiam feminarum dabit ei, ut evertat illud: et non stabit, nec illius erit.

18 Et convertet faciem suam ad insulas, et capiet multas: et cessare faciet principem opprobrii sui, et opprobrium ejus convertetur in eum.

19 Et convertet faciem suam ad imperium terræ suæ, et impinget, et corruet, et non invenietur.

20 Et stabit in loco ejus vilissimus, et indignus decore regio: et in paucis diebus conteretur, non in furore, nec in prælio.

21 Et stabit in loco ejus despectus, et non tribuetur ei honor regius: et veniet clam, et obtinebit regnum in fraudulentia.

22 Et brachia pugnantis expugnabuntur a facie ejus, et conterentur: insuper et dux fœderis.

23 Et post amicitias, cum eo faciet dolum: et ascendet, et superabit in modico populo.

24 Et abundantes, et uberes urbes ingredietur: et faciet quæ non fecerunt patres ejus, et patres patrum ejus: rapinas, et prædam, et divitias eorum dissipabit, et contra firmissimas cogitationes inibit: et hoc usque ad tempus.

25 Et concitabitur fortitudo ejus, et cor ejus adversum regem austri in exercitu magno: et rex austri provocabitur ad bellum multis auxiliis, et fortibus nimis: et non stabunt, quia inibunt adversus eum consilia.

26 Et comedentes panem cum eo, conterent illum, exercitusque ejus opprimetur: et cadent interfecti plurimi.

27 Duorum quoque regum cor erit ut malefaciant, et ad mensam unam mendacium loquentur: et non proficient, quia adhuc finis in aliud tempus.

28 Et revertetur in terram suam cum opibus multis: et cor ejus adversum testamentum sanctum, et faciet, et revertetur in terram suam.

29 Statuto tempore revertetur, et veniet ad austrum: et non erit priori simile novissimum.

30 Et venient super eum trieres, et Romani: et percutietur, et revertetur, et indignabitur contra testamentum sanctuarii, et faciet: reverteturque, et cogitabit adversum eos qui dereliquerunt testamentum sanctuarii.

31 Et brachia ex eo stabunt, et polluent sanctuarium fortitudinis, et auferent juge sacrificium: et dabunt abominationem in desolationem.

32 Et impii in testamentum simulabunt fraudulenter: populus autem sciens Deum suum, obtinebit, et faciet.

33 Et docti in populo docebunt plurimos: et ruent in gladio, et in flamma, et in captivitate, et in rapina dierum.

34 Cumque corruerint, sublevabuntur auxilio parvulo: et applicabuntur eis plurimi fraudulenter.

35 Et de eruditis ruent, ut conflentur, et eligantur, et dealbentur usque ad tempus præfinitum: quia adhuc aliud tempus erit.

36 Et faciet juxta voluntatem suam rex, et elevabitur, et magnificabitur adversus omnem deum: et adversus Deum deorum loquetur magnifica, et dirigetur, donec compleatur iracundia: perpetrata quippe est definitio.

37 Et Deum patrum suorum non reputabit: et erit in concupiscentiis feminarum, nec quemquam deorum curabit, quia adversum universa consurget.

38 Deum autem Maozim in loco suo venerabitur: et deum, quem ignoraverunt patres ejus, colet auro, et argento, et lapide pretioso, rebusque pretiosis.

39 Et faciet ut muniat Maozim cum deo alieno, quem cognovit, et multiplicabit gloriam, et dabit eis potestatem in multis, et terram dividet gratuito.

40 Et in tempore præfinito præliabitur adversus eum rex austri, et quasi tempestas veniet contra illum rex aquilonis in curribus, et in equitibus, et in classe magna, et ingredietur terras, et conteret, et pertransiet.

41 Et introibit in terram gloriosam, et multæ corruent: hæ autem solæ salvabuntur de manu ejus, Edom, et Moab, et principium filiorum Ammon.

42 Et mittet manum suam in terras: et terra Ægypti non effugiet.

43 Et dominabitur thesaurorum auri, et argenti, et in omnibus pretiosis Ægypti: per Libyam quoque, et Æthiopiam transibit.

44 Et fama turbabit eum ab oriente et ab aquilone: et veniet in multitudine magna ut conterat et interficiat plurimos.

45 Et figet tabernaculum suum Apadno inter maria, super montem inclytum et sanctum: et veniet usque ad summitatem ejus, et nemo auxiliabitur ei.
