11I have been standing beside Michael to support and strengthen him since the first year of the reign of Darius the Mede.)H259H8141H1867H4075H5977H2388H4581

Kings of the South and North

2“Now then, I will reveal the truth to you. Three more Persian kings will reign, to be succeeded by a fourth, far richer than the others. He will use his wealth to stir up everyone to fight against the kingdom of Greece.H5046H571H5975H7969H4428H6539H7243H6239H6238H1419H2393H6239H5782H4438H3120 3“Then a mighty king will rise to power who will rule with great authority and accomplish everything he sets out to do.H1368H4428H5975H4910H7227H4474H6213H7522 4But at the height of his power, his kingdom will be broken apart and divided into four parts. It will not be ruled by the king’s descendants, nor will the kingdom hold the authority it once had. For his empire will be uprooted and given to others.H5975H4438H7665H2673H702H7307H8064H319H4915H4910H4438H5428H312 5“The king of the south will increase in power, but one of his own officials will become more powerful than he and will rule his kingdom with great strength.H4428H5045H2388H8269H2388H4910H4475H7227H4474 6“Some years later an alliance will be formed between the king of the north and the king of the south. The daughter of the king of the south will be given in marriage to the king of the north to secure the alliance, but she will lose her influence over him, and so will her father. She will be abandoned along with her supporters.H7093H8141H2266H4428H1323H5045H935H4428H6828H6213H4339H6113H3581H2220H5975H2220H5414H935H3205H2388H6256 7But when one of her relatives becomes king of the south, he will raise an army and enter the fortress of the king of the north and defeat him.H5342H8328H5975H3653H935H2428H935H4581H4428H6828H6213H2388 8When he returns to Egypt, he will carry back their idols with him, along with priceless articles of gold and silver. For some years afterward he will leave the king of the north alone.H935H7628H4714H430H5257H2532H3627H3701H2091H5975H8141H4428H6828 9“Later the king of the north will invade the realm of the king of the south but will soon return to his own land.H4428H5045H935H4438H7725H127 10However, the sons of the king of the north will assemble a mighty army that will advance like a flood and carry the battle as far as the enemy’s fortress.H1121H1624H622H1995H7227H2428H935H935H7857H5674H7725H1624H4581 11“Then, in a rage, the king of the south will rally against the vast forces assembled by the king of the north and will defeat them.H4428H5045H4843H3318H3898H4428H6828H5975H7227H1995H1995H5414H3027 12After the enemy army is swept away, the king of the south will be filled with pride and will execute many thousands of his enemies. But his success will be short lived.H5375H1995H3824H7311H7311H5307H7239H5810 13“A few years later the king of the north will return with a fully equipped army far greater than before.H4428H6828H7725H5975H1995H7227H7223H935H935H7093H6256H8141H1419H2428H7227H7399 14At that time there will be a general uprising against the king of the south. Violent men among your own people will join them in fulfillment of this vision, but they will not succeed.H6256H7227H5975H4428H5045H1121H6530H5971H5375H5975H2377H3782 15Then the king of the north will come and lay siege to a fortified city and capture it. The best troops of the south will not be able to stand in the face of the onslaught.H4428H6828H935H8210H5550H3920H4013H5892H2220H5045H5975H4005H5971H3581H5975 16“The king of the north will march onward unopposed; none will be able to stop him. He will pause in the glorious land of Israel, intent on destroying it.H935H6213H7522H5975H6440H5975H6643H776H3027H3617 17He will make plans to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will form an alliance with the king of the south. He will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom from within, but his plan will fail.H7760H6440H935H8633H4438H3477H6213H5414H1323H802H7843H5975 18“After this, he will turn his attention to the coastland and conquer many cities. But a commander from another land will put an end to his insolence and cause him to retreat in shame.H7760H7725H6440H339H3920H7227H7101H2781H7673H1115H2781H7725 19He will take refuge in his own fortresses but will stumble and fall and be seen no more.H7725H6440H4581H776H3782H5307H4672 20“His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. But after a very brief reign, he will die, though not from anger or in battle.H5975H3653H5674H5065H1925H4438H259H3117H7665H639H4421 21“The next to come to power will be a despicable man who is not in line for royal succession. He will slip in when least expected and take over the kingdom by flattery and intrigue.H3653H5975H959H5414H1935H4438H935H7962H2388H4438H2519 22Before him great armies will be swept away, including a covenant prince.H2220H7858H7857H6440H7665H5057H1285 23With deceitful promises, he will make various alliances. He will become strong despite having only a handful of followers.H2266H6213H4820H5927H6105H4592H1471 24Without warning he will enter the richest areas of the land. Then he will distribute among his followers the plunder and wealth of the rich—something his predecessors had never done. He will plot the overthrow of strongholds, but this will last for only a short while.H935H7962H4924H4082H6213H1H6213H1H1H967H961H7998H7399H2803H4284H4013H6256 25“Then he will stir up his courage and raise a great army against the king of the south. The king of the south will go to battle with a mighty army, but to no avail, for there will be plots against him.H5782H3581H3824H4428H5045H1419H2428H4428H5045H1624H4421H3966H1419H6099H2428H5975H2803H4284 26His own household will cause his downfall. His army will be swept away, and many will be killed.H398H6598H7665H2428H7857H7227H5307H2491 27Seeking nothing but each other’s harm, these kings will plot against each other at the conference table, attempting to deceive each other. But it will make no difference, for the end will come at the appointed time.H8147H4428H3824H4827H7451H1696H3577H259H7979H6743H7093H4150 28“The king of the north will then return home with great riches. On the way he will set himself against the people of the holy covenant, doing much damage before continuing his journey.H7725H776H1419H7399H3824H6944H1285H6213H7725H776 29“Then at the appointed time he will once again invade the south, but this time the result will be different.H4150H7725H935H5045H7223H314 30For warships from western coastlands will scare him off, and he will withdraw and return home. But he will vent his anger against the people of the holy covenant and reward those who forsake the covenant.H6716H3794H935H3512H7725H2194H6944H1285H6213H7725H995H5800H6944H1285 31“His army will take over the Temple fortress, pollute the sanctuary, put a stop to the daily sacrifices, and set up the sacrilegious object that causes desecration.H2220H5975H2490H4720H4581H5493H8548H5414H8251H8074 32He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him.H7561H1285H2610H2514H5971H3045H430H2388H6213 33“Wise leaders will give instruction to many, but these teachers will die by fire and sword, or they will be jailed and robbed.H7919H5971H995H7227H3782H2719H3852H7628H961H3117 34During these persecutions, little help will arrive, and many who join them will not be sincere.H3782H5826H4592H5828H7227H3867H2519 35And some of the wise will fall victim to persecution. In this way, they will be refined and cleansed and made pure until the time of the end, for the appointed time is still to come.H7919H3782H6884H1305H3835H6256H7093H4150 36“The king will do as he pleases, exalting himself and claiming to be greater than every god, even blaspheming the God of gods. He will succeed, but only until the time of wrath is completed. For what has been determined will surely take place.H4428H6213H7522H7311H1431H410H1696H6381H410H410H6743H2195H3615H2782H6213 37He will have no respect for the gods of his ancestors, or for the god loved by women, or for any other god, for he will boast that he is greater than them all.H995H430H1H2532H802H995H433H1431 38Instead of these, he will worship the god of fortresses—a god his ancestors never knew—and lavish on him gold, silver, precious stones, and expensive gifts.H3653H3513H433H4581H433H1H3045H3513H2091H3701H3368H68H2532 39Claiming this foreign god’s help, he will attack the strongest fortresses. He will honor those who submit to him, appointing them to positions of authority and dividing the land among them as their reward.H6213H4581H4013H5236H433H5234H5234H7235H3519H4910H7227H2505H127H4242 40“Then at the time of the end, the king of the south will attack the king of the north. The king of the north will storm out with chariots, charioteers, and a vast navy. He will invade various lands and sweep through them like a flood.H6256H7093H4428H5045H5055H4428H6828H8175H7393H6571H7227H591H935H776H7857H5674 41He will enter the glorious land of Israel, and many nations will fall, but Moab, Edom, and the best part of Ammon will escape.H935H6643H776H7227H3782H4422H3027H123H4124H7225H1121H5983 42He will conquer many countries, and even Egypt will not escape.H7971H3027H776H776H4714H6413 43He will gain control over the gold, silver, and treasures of Egypt, and the Libyans and Ethiopians will be his servants.H4910H4362H2091H3701H2532H4714H3864H3569H4703 44“But then news from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in great anger to destroy and obliterate many.H8052H4217H6828H926H3318H1419H2534H8045H2763H7227 45He will stop between the glorious holy mountain and the sea and will pitch his royal tents. But while he is there, his time will suddenly run out, and no one will help him.H5193H168H643H3220H6643H6944H2022H935H7093H5826
