The Ancient of Days Reigns
9 “I kept looking
11 Then I kept looking because of the sound of the [b]boastful words which the horn was speaking; I kept looking until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to the burning [c]fire. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but an extension of life was granted to them for an appointed period of time.

13 “I kept looking in the night visions,
The Vision Interpreted
15 “As for me, Daniel, my spirit was distressed [f]within me, and the visions [g]in my mind kept alarming me. 16 I approached one of those who were standing by and began asking him the [h]exact meaning of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things: 17 ‘These great beasts, which are four in number, are four kings who will arise from the earth. 18 But the [i]saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, [j]for all ages to come.’
19 “Then I desired to know the [k]exact meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all [l]the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its claws of bronze, and which devoured, crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet, 20 and the meaning of the ten horns that were on its head and the other horn which came up, and before which three of them fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth uttering great boasts and [m]which was larger in appearance than its associates. 21 I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the [n]saints and overpowering them 22 until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was [o]passed in favor of the [p]saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the [q]saints took possession of the kingdom.
23 “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. 24 As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak [r]out against the Most High and wear down the [s]saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and [t]they will be given into his hand for a [u]time, [v]times, and half a [w]time. 26 But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, [x]annihilated and destroyed [y]forever. 27 Then the [z]sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the [aa]saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.’
