36 “Then the king will (A)do as he pleases, and he will exalt himself and (B)boast against every god and will (C)speak [a]dreadful things against the (D)God of gods; and he will be successful until the (E)indignation is finished, because that which is (F)determined will be done. 37 And he will show no regard for the [b]gods of his fathers or for the [c]desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will boast against them all. 38 But [d]instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, precious stones, and treasures. 39 And he will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to [e]those who acknowledge him and will make them rulers over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.

40 “And at the (G)end time the (H)king of the South will wage war with him, and the (I)king of the North will (J)storm against him with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he will enter countries, (K)overflow them, and pass through.
