Daniel 11:29-35 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 “At the appointed time he will return and come into the South, but [a]this last time it will not turn out the way it did before. 30 For ships of [b]Kittim will come against him; therefore he will be disheartened and will return and become enraged at the holy covenant and take action; so he will come back and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination [c]of desolation. 32 By smooth words he will [d]turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action. 33 [e]Those who have insight among the people will give understanding to the many; yet they will fall by sword and by flame, by captivity and by plunder for many days. 34 Now when they fall they will be granted a little help, and many will join with them in hypocrisy. 35 Some of [f]those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them [g]pure until the end time; because it is still to come at the appointed time.
