After this I saw in the visions by night a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth and was devouring, breaking in pieces, and stamping what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that preceded it, and it had ten horns. I was considering the horns, when another horn appeared, a little one coming up among them; to make room for it, three of the earlier horns were plucked up by the roots. There were eyes like human eyes in this horn, and a mouth speaking arrogantly.

Judgement before the Ancient One

As I watched,
thrones were set in place,
    and an Ancient One[a] took his throne;
his clothing was white as snow,
    and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames,
    and its wheels were burning fire.

  1. Daniel 7:9 Aram an Ancient of Days

“After that, in my vision(A) at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron(B) teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled(C) underfoot whatever was left.(D) It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.(E)

“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little(F) one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being(G) and a mouth that spoke boastfully.(H)

“As I looked,

“thrones were set in place,
    and the Ancient of Days(I) took his seat.(J)
His clothing was as white as snow;(K)
    the hair of his head was white like wool.(L)
His throne was flaming with fire,
    and its wheels(M) were all ablaze.
