I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human [b]mind also was given to it.5 And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and thus they said to it, ‘Arise, devour much meat!’6 After this I kept looking, and behold, another one, like a leopard, which had on its [c]back four wings of a bird; the beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.7 After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.8 While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, [d]this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts.
