New International Version
22 Then an overwhelming army will be swept away(A) before him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed.(B) 23 After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully,(C) and with only a few people he will rise to power. 24 When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers.(D) He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.
