the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of
brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up,
and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that
spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the
most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus he

diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it
down, and break it in pieces.
And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and
another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he
shall subdue three kings.
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the
saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be
given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
