Judgment before the Ancient One

As I watched,
thrones were set in place,
    and an Ancient One[a] took his throne,
his clothing was white as snow,
    and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames,
    and its wheels were burning fire.
10 A stream of fire issued
    and flowed out from his presence.
A thousand thousands served him,
    and ten thousand times ten thousand stood attending him.
The court sat in judgment,
    and the books were opened.

  1. Daniel 7:9 Aram an Ancient of Days

13 As I watched in the night visions,

I saw one like a human being[a]
    coming with the clouds of heaven.
And he came to the Ancient One[b]
    and was presented before him.
14 To him was given dominion
    and glory and kingship,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not pass away,
and his kingship is one
    that shall never be destroyed.
