The Son of Man Is Given Dominion

13 “I saw in the night visions,

and (A)behold, with the clouds of heaven
    there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the (B)Ancient of Days
    and was presented before him.
14 (C)And to him was given dominion
    and glory and a kingdom,
that all (D)peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him;
(E)his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
    which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one
    that shall not be destroyed.

Daniel's Vision Interpreted

15 “As for me, Daniel, my spirit within me[a] was anxious, and (F)the visions of my head alarmed me. 16 I approached one of those who stood there and asked him the truth concerning all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of the things. 17 (G)‘These four great beasts are four kings who shall arise out of the earth. 18 But (H)the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, forever and ever.’
