24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten Kings that shall rise: and another shall rise after them, and he shall be unlike to the first, and he shall subdue [a]three Kings,

25 And shall speak words against [b]the most High, and shall consume the Saints of the most High, and think that he may [c]change times and laws, and they shall be given into his hand until a [d]time, and times, and the dividing of time.
