The Ancient of Days Reigns

“As I looked,

(A)thrones were placed,
    and the (B)Ancient of Days took his seat;
(C)his clothing was white as snow,
    and (D)the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames;
    (E)its wheels were burning fire.
10 (F)A stream of fire issued
    and came out from before him;
(G)a thousand thousands (H)served him,
    (I)and ten thousand times ten thousand (J)stood before him;
the (K)court sat in judgment,
    and (L)the books were opened.

11 “I looked then because of the sound of (M)the great words that the horn was speaking. And as I looked, (N)the beast was killed, and its body destroyed (O)and given over to be burned with fire. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, (P)their dominion was taken away, but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.

The Son of Man Is Given Dominion

13 “I saw in the night visions,

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