RSTNE 8th Edition Online – Daniel-Daniyel


To Our Forefathers Yisrael

1 In the third year of the malchut of Yahuyakim melech of Yahudah came Nevuchadnetzar melech of Bavel to Yahrushalayim and besieged it.

2 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gave Yahuyakim melech of Yahudah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the Bayit of Ahloha: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the bayit of his Ahloha; and he brought the vessels into the treasure bayit of his Ahloha.

3 And the melech spoke to Ashpenaz the master of his officers, that he should bring certain of the children of Yisrael and of the melech’s zera and of the nobles;

4 Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored and skillful in all chochmah and skilled in da’at and the binah of science and such as had the ability to stand in the melech’s palace, in order that they might teach them the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

5 And the melech appointed for them a daily provision of the melech’s food and of the wine which he drank: nourishing them for three years, so that at the end of that time they might stand before the melech.

6 Now among these were of the children of Yahudah, Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha-El and Azaryah:

7 To whom the sar of the officers gave names: for he gave to Daniyel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananyah, he gave the name of Shadrach; and to Misha-El, he gave the name of Meshach; and to Azaryah, he gave the name of Aved-Nego.

8 But Daniyel purposed in his lev that he would not defile himself with the portion of the melech’s food, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested to the sar of the officers permission to abstain that he might not defile himself.

9 Now Ahloha had brought Daniyel into chen and tender ahava with the sar of the officers.

10 And the sar of the officers said to Daniyel, I fear my master the melech, who has appointed your food and your drink: for why should he see your faces looking more sad than the other children your age? Then you would make me risk my chayim before the melech.

11 Then said Daniyel to Menezar, whom the sar of the officers had set over Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha-El and Azaryah,

12 Test your avadim for ten yamim I ask you; and let them give us vegetables to eat, and mayim to drink.

13 Then let our faces be looked upon before you and the faces of the rest of children of Yisrael that eat of the portion of the melech’s food: and then as you see fit, deal with your avadim.

14 So he consented to them in this matter and tested them ten yamim.

15 And at the end of ten yamim their faces appeared more beautiful and fuller than all the children who did eat the portion of the melech’s food.

16 So Menezar took away the portion of their food and the wine that they should drink; and gave them daily vegetables.

17 As for these four children, Ahloha gave them da’at and skill in all learning and chochmah: and Daniyel had binah in all visions and dreams.

18 Now at the end of those yamim at the time that the melech had said he would bring them in, then the sar of the officers brought them in before Nevuchadnetzar.

19 And the melech communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniyel, Hananyah, Misha-El and Azaryah: therefore they stood and served before the melech.

20 And in all matters of chochmah and binah, that the melech asked them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his malchut.

21 And Daniyel continued to serve in that capacity even to the first year of melech Koresh.

2 And in the second year of the malchut of Nevuchadnetzar, he dreamed dreams, by which his ruach was troubled and his sleep left him.

2 Then the melech commanded a call to be made to all the magicians and the astrologers and the sorcerers and the Chaldeans, to explain to the melech his dreams. So they came and stood before the melech.

3 And the melech said to them, I have dreamed a dream and my ruach was anxious to know the dream.

4 Then spoke the Chaldeans to the melech in Aramaic, O melech, live le-olam-va-ed: tell your avadim the dream and we will explain the interpretation.

5 The melech answered and said to the Chaldeans, I have forgotten the dream: if you will not make known to me the dream, along with the interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made into dunghills.

6 But if you explain the dream and the interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great kavod: therefore explain to me the dream and its interpretation.

7 They answered again and said, Let the melech tell his avadim the dream and we will explain the interpretation.

8 The melech answered and said, I know of certainty that you are buying time because you see the dream has gone from my memory.

9 But if you will not make known to me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for you have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, until the time has changed: therefore tell me the dream and I shall know that you can also explain the interpretation of it.

10 The Chaldeans answered before the melech and said, There is not a man upon the olam that can explain the melech’s matter: therefore there is no melech, master, or ruler, that has asked such things at any time from any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.

11 And it is a rare thing that the melech requires and there is no other person that can explain it before the melech, except the emet Ahloha, whose dwelling is not with flesh.

12 For this cause the melech was angry and very furious and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Bavel.

13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniyel and his companions to be slain.

14 Then Daniyel answered with counsel and chochmah to Ariyoch the captain of the melech’s guard, who had gone forth to kill the wise men of Bavel:

15 He answered and said to Ariyoch the melech’s captain, Why is the decree given in such haste from the melech? Then Ariyoch made the thing known to Daniyel.

16 Then Daniyel went in and desired of the melech that he would give him time and that he would explain to the melech the interpretation.

17 Then Daniyel went to his bayit and made the thing known to Hananyah, Misha-El and Azaryah, his companions:

18 That they would desire rachamim of the Ahloha of the shamayim concerning this secret; that Daniyel and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Bavel.

19 Then was the secret revealed to Daniyel in a lyla vision. Then Daniyel blessed the Ahloha of the shamayim.

20 Daniyel answered and said, Blessed be the Name of Ahloha le-olam-va-ed: for chochmah and might are His:

21 And He changes the times and the moadem: He removes melechim and sets up melechim: He gives chochmah to the wise and da’at to them that have binah:

22 He reveals the deep and secret things: He knows what is in the darkness and the Ohr dwells with Him.

23 I thank You and hallel You, O Ahloha of my ahvot, who has given me chochmah and might and has made known to me now what we have desired of You: for You have now made known to us the melech’s matter.

24 Therefore Daniyel went in to Ariyoch, whom the melech had ordained to destroy the wise men of Bavel: he went and said to him; Destroy not the wise men of Bavel: bring me in before the melech and I will explain to the melech the interpretation.

25 Then Ariyoch brought in Daniyel before the melech in haste and said to him, I have found a man of the captives of Yahudah, that will make known to the melech the interpretation.

26 The melech answered and said to Daniyel, whose name was Belteshatzar, Are you able to make known to me the dream that I have seen and its interpretation?

27 Daniyel answered in the presence of the melech and said, The secret, which the melech has demanded, cannot be declared by the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, or the soothsayers.

28 But there is an Ahloha in the shamayim that reveals secrets and makes known to the melech Nevuchadnetzar what shall be in the latter-yamim. Your dreams and the visions of your head upon your bed, were these;

29 As for you, O melech, your thoughts came into your mind upon your bed, what should come to pass in the future: and He that reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass.

30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any chochmah that I may have more than any others, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the melech and that you might know the thoughts of your lev.

31 You, O melech, saw and saw a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form of it was awesome.

32 This image’s head was of fine gold, its breast and its strong ones of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass,

33 Its legs of iron, its feet part iron and part clay.

34 You saw it until a Stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon its feet that were of iron and clay and broke them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver and the gold, broken to pieces together and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the Stone that smote the image became a great har and filled the whole olam.

36 This is the dream; and now we will tell the interpretation of it to the melech.

37 You, O melech, are a melech of melechim: for the Ahloha of the shamayim has given you a malchut, power and strength and tifereth.

38 And wherever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the shamayim He has given all this into your hands and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold.

39 And after you shall arise another malchut inferior to yours, and another third malchut of brass, which shall bear rule over all the olam.

40 And the fourth malchut shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

41 And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay and part of iron, this fifth malchut shall be divided; but there shall be in it some of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with muddy clay.

42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so this malchut shall be partly strong and partly broken.

43 And whereas you saw iron mixed with muddy clay, they shall mix themselves with the zera of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

44 And in the yamim of these melechim shall the Ahloha of the shamayim set up a malchut, which shall never be destroyed: and the malchut shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these malchutim and it shall stand le-olam-va-ed.

45 For as much as you saw that the Stone was cut out of the har without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver and the gold; the great Ahloha has made known to the melech what shall come to pass in the future: and the dream is certain and the interpretation of it sure.

46 Then the melech Nevuchadnetzar fell upon his face and worshipped Daniyel and commanded that they should offer an offering and sweet incense to him.

47 The melech answered to Daniyel and said, Of an emet it is, that your Ahloha is the Ahloha of all ahlahim and a Master of Melechim and a revealer of secrets, seeing you could reveal this secret.

48 Then the melech made Daniyel a great man and gave him many great gifts and made him ruler over the whole province of Bavel and chief of the nobles over all the wise men of Bavel.

49 Then Daniyel requested of the melech and he set Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, over the affairs of the province of Bavel: but Daniyel sat in the very gate of the melech.

3 Nevuchadnetzar the melech made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and the breadth of it six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Bavel.

2 Then Nevuchadnetzar the melech sent to gather together the nobles, the governors and the captains, the shophtim, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nevuchadnetzar the melech had set up.

3 Then the nobles, the governors and captains, the shophtim, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together to the dedication of the image that Nevuchadnetzar the melech had set up; and they stood before the image that Nevuchadnetzar had set up.

4 Then a herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O peoples, goyim and languages,

5 That at the time you hear the sound of the trumpet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery and all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the golden image that Nevuchadnetzar the melech has set up:

6 And whoever does not fall down and worship; shall at that same hour be cast into the middle of a burning fiery furnace.

7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the trumpet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery and all kinds of music, all the peoples, goyim and languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nevuchadnetzar the melech had set up.

8 Then at that time certain Chaldeans came near and accused the Yahudim.

9 They spoke and said to the melech Nevuchadnetzar, O melech, live le-olam-va-ed.

10 You, O melech, have made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the trumpet, flute, harp and psaltery and all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image:

11 And whoever does not fall down and worship, that he should be cast into the middle of a burning fiery furnace.

12 There are certain Yahudim whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Bavel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego; these men, O melech, have not regarded you: they do not serve your Ahloha, nor worship the golden image which you have set up.

13 Then Nevuchadnetzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego to him. Then they brought these men before the melech.

14 Nevuchadnetzar spoke and said to them, Is it emet, O Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego that you do not serve my Ahloha, nor worship the golden image that I have set up?

15 Now if you are ready the next time you hear the sound of the trumpet, flute, harp, psaltery and all kinds of music, if you fall down and worship the image which I have made; all will be well: but if you worship not, you shall be cast in that same hour into the middle of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that Ahloha that shall deliver you out of my hands?

16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, answered and said to the melech, O Nevuchadnetzar, there is no need to answer you in this matter.

17 If it be so, our Ahloha whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and He will deliver us out of your hand, O melech.

18 But if not, be it known to you, O melech, that we will not serve your Ahloha, nor worship the golden image that you have set up.

19 Then was Nevuchadnetzar full of fury and the expression on his face was changed against Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego: therefore he spoke and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was normally heated.

20 And he commanded the mightiest men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.

21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers and their head coverings, and their other garments and were cast into the middle of the burning fiery furnace.

22 Therefore because the melech’s commandment was urgent and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego.

23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the middle of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then Nevuchadnetzar the melech was astonished and rose up in haste and spoke and said to his counselors, Did not we cast three men bound into the middle of the fire? They answered and said to the melech, Emet, O melech.

25 He answered and said, Look, I see four men loose, walking in the middle of the fire and they are not hurt; and the form of the fourth is like The Bar-Ahloha.

26 Then Nevuchadnetzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke and said, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, you avadim of the Most High Ahloha, come forth and come here. Then Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, came forth from the middle of the fire.

27 And the nobles, governors and captains and the melech’s counselors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was a hair of their head singed, nor were their garments changed, nor had the smell of fire come on them.

28 Then Nevuchadnetzar spoke and said, Blessed be the Ahloha of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, who has sent His Heavenly Malach and delivered His avadim that trusted in Him and have changed the melech’s word and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any Ahloha, except their own Ahloha.

29 Therefore I make a new decree, That every people, nation and language, that speaks anything wrong against the Ahloha of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, shall be cut in pieces and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other Ahloha that can deliver in this manner.

30 Then the melech promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, in the province of Bavel.

4 Nevuchadnetzar the melech, to all peoples, goyim and languages, that dwell in all the olam; Shalom be multiplied to you.

2 I thought it tov to explain the signs and wonders that the Most High Ahloha has worked for me.

3 How great are His signs! And how mighty are His wonders! His malchut is an everlasting malchut and His dominion is from generation to generation.

4 I Nevuchadnetzar was at rest in my bayit and flourishing in my palace:

5 I saw a dream that made me afraid and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions in my head troubled me.

6 Therefore I made a decree to bring in all the wise men of Bavel before me that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream.

7 Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans and the soothsayers: and I told the dream to all of them; but they did not make known to me the interpretation of it.

8 But lastly Daniyel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my Ahloha and in whom is The Ruach of the kadosh Ahloha: and in his presence I told him the dream, saying,

9 O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians because I know that The Ruach of the kadosh Ahloha is in you and no secret is too difficult for you, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen and its interpretation.

10 This then was the vision of my head on my bed; I saw an eytz in the middle of the olam and the height of it was great.

11 The eytz grew and was strong and the height of it reached to the shamayim and the sight of it to the ends of all the olam:

12 The leaves of it were beautiful and the fruit of it abundant and in it was food for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it and the fowls of the shamayim dwelt in its branches and all flesh was fed by it.

13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed and, see, a Watcher and a Kadosh-One came down from the shamayim;

14 He cried aloud and said this, Cut down the eytz and cut off its branches, shake off its leaves and scatter its fruit: let the beasts get away from under it and the fowls from its branches:

15 Nevertheless leave the stump of its roots in the olam, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of the shamayim and let its portion be with the beasts in the grass of the olam:

16 Let his lev be changed from a man’s lev and let a beast’s lev be given to him; and let seven times pass over him.

17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers and the demand by the word of the kadosh ones: to the intent that the living may know that the Most High rules in the malchut of men and gives it to whoever He desires and sets up over it the lowest of men.

18 This dream I melech Nevuchadnetzar have seen. Now you, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation of it because all the wise men of my malchut are not able to make known to me the interpretation: but you are able; for The Ruach of the kadosh Ahloha is in you.

19 Then Daniyel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonished for one hour and his thoughts troubled him. The melech spoke and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation of it, alarm you. Belteshazzar answered and said, My master, the dream is for them that hate you and the interpretation of it is for your enemies.

20 The eytz that you saw, which grew and was strong, whose height reached to the shamayim and the sight of it to all the olam;

21 Whose leaves were beautiful and the fruit of it abundant and in it was food for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt and upon whose branches the fowls of the shamayim had their dwelling:

22 It is you, O melech, that are grown and become strong: for your greatness is grown and reaches to the shamayim and your dominion to the ends of the olam.

23 And whereas the melech saw a watcher and a kadosh one coming down from the shamayim and saying, Cut the eytz down and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots of it in the olam, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of the shamayim and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, until seven times pass over him;

24 This is the interpretation, O melech and this is the decree of the Most High, which is come upon my master the melech:

25 That they shall drive you from men and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field and they shall make you to eat grass as oxen and they shall wet you with the dew of the shamayim and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the malchut of men and He gives it to whoever He desires.

26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the eytz roots; your malchut will remain yours, after you come to know that the shamayim do rule.

27 So, O melech, let my counsel be acceptable to you and break off your sins by tzedakah and your iniquities by showing rachamim to the poor; if it may lead to a lengthening of your shalom and prosperity.

28 All this came upon the melech Nevuchadnetzar.

29 At the end of twelve chodashem he walked in the palace of the malchut of Bavel.

30 The melech spoke and said, Is not this great Bavel, that I have built for the bayit of the malchut by the might of my power and for the kavod of my greatness?

31 While the word was in the melech’s mouth, there fell a voice from the shamayim, saying, O melech Nevuchadnetzar, to you it is spoken; The malchut has departed from you.

32 And they shall drive you from men and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make you to eat grass as oxen and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the malchut of men and He gives it to whomever He desires.

33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nevuchadnetzar: and he was driven from men and did eat grass as oxen and his gooff was wet with the dew of the shamayim, until his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.

34 And at the end of those yamim I Nevuchadnetzar lifted up my eyes to the shamayim and my binah returned to me and I blessed the Most High and I praised and honored Him that lives le-olam-va-ed, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion and His malchut is from generation to generation:

35 And all the inhabitants of the olam are counted as nothing: and He does according to His will in the armies of the shamayim and among the inhabitants of the olam: and no one can stop His hand, or say to Him, What are You doing?

36 At the same time my reasoning returned to me; and for the tifereth of my malchut, my kavod and brightness returned to me; and my counselors and my masters sought me again; and I was established in my malchut and excellent greatness was even added to me.

37 Now I Nevuchadnetzar hallel and extol and esteem The Melech of the shamayim because all His works are all emet and all His halachot are tzadik: and those that walk in pride He is able to humble.

5 Belshatzar the melech made a great feast to a thousand of his masters and drank wine before the thousands.

2 Belshatzar, while he tasted the wine, commanded to bring in the golden and silver vessels that his abba Nevuchadnetzar had taken out of the Hekal that was in Yahrushalayim; so that the melech and his nobles, his wives and his concubines, might drink from them.

3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the Hekal of the Bayit of Ahloha which was at Yahrushalayim; and the melech and his nobles, his wives and his concubines, drank from them.

4 They drank wine and praised the Ahloha of gold and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood and of stone.

5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a Man’s hand and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the melech’s palace: and the melech saw the part of the hand that wrote.

6 Then the melech’s face was changed and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosed and his knees knocked one against another.

7 The melech cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans and the soothsayers. And the melech spoke and said to the wise men of Bavel, Whoever shall read this writing and explain to me the interpretation of it, shall be clothed with scarlet and have a chain of gold around his neck and shall be the third ruler in the malchut.

8 Then came in all the melech’s wise men: but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the melech its interpretation.

9 Then was melech Belshatzar greatly troubled and his face was changed and his nobles were astonished.

10 Now the queen, by reason of the words of the melech and his masters, came into the banquet bayit: and the queen spoke and said, O melech, live le-olam-va-ed: let not your thoughts trouble you, nor let your face be changed:

11 There is a man in your malchut, in whom is the ruach of the kadosh Ahloha; and in the yamim of your abba ohr and binah and chochmah, like the chochmah of the Ahloha, was found in him; whom the melech Nevuchadnetzar your abba made master over all the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans and soothsayers;

12 Since an excellent Ruach and da’at and binah, interpreting of dreams and solving difficult problems and explaining things, were found in the same Daniyel, whom the melech named Belteshazzar: now let Daniyel be called and he will explain the interpretation.

13 Then was Daniyel brought in before the melech. And the melech spoke and said to Daniyel, Are you that same Daniyel, who is from the children of the captivity of Yahudah, whom the melech my abba brought out of Yahudah?

14 I have even heard about you, that The Ruach of the Ahloha is in you and that ohr and binah and excellent chochmah is found in you.

15 And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing and make known to me the interpretation of it: but they could not explain the interpretation of the thing:

16 And I have heard about you, that you can make interpretations and dissolve doubts: now if you can read the writing and make known to me the interpretation of it, you shall be clothed with scarlet and have a chain of gold around your neck and shall be the third ruler in the malchut.

17 Then Daniyel answered and said before the melech, Let your gifts be for yourself and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the melech and make known to him the interpretation.

18 O you melech, the Most High Ahloha gave Nevuchadnetzar your abba a malchut and greatness and tifereth and kavod:

19 And for the greatness that He gave him, all peoples, goyim and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he killed; and whom he would, he kept alive; and whom he would, he set up; and whom he would, he put down.

20 But when his lev was lifted up and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from the melech’s kesay and they took his tifereth from him:

21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his lev was made like the beasts and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys: they fed him with grass like oxen and his gooff was wet with the dew of the shamayim; until he knew that the Most High Ahloha ruled in the malchut of men and that He appoints over it whomever He desires.

22 And you his son, O Belshatzar, have not humbled your lev, though you knew all this;

23 But have lifted up yourself against The Master of the shamayim; and they have brought the vessels of His Bayit before you and you and your masters, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine in them; and you have praised the mighty ones of silver and gold, of brass, iron, wood and stone, which see not, nor hear and know nothing: and to the Ahloha in whose hand your breath is and who owns all your halachot, have you not given tifereth:

24 Then was the palm of the hand sent from Him; with this writing:

25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of these words: MENE; Ahloha has numbered your malchut and finished it.

27 TEKEL; You are weighed in the balances and are found wanting.

28 PERES; your malchut is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

29 Then commanded Belshatzar, to clothe Daniyel with scarlet and put a chain of gold around his neck and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the malchut.

30 In that lyla was Belshatzar the melech of the Chaldeans killed.

31 And Daryawesh the Mede took the malchut, being about sixty-two years old.

6 It pleased Daryawesh to set over the malchut a hundred twenty nobles, who would be over the whole malchut;

2 And over these three governors; of whom Daniyel was one: so that the nobles might give account to them and the melech should suffer no loss.

3 So Daniyel excelled above the governors and nobles because an excellent Ruach was in him; and the melech thought about setting him over the whole malchut.

4 Then the governors and nobles sought to find an occasion against Daniyel concerning the malchut; but they could find no occasion nor fault; because he was faithful, neither was there any error, or fault found in him.

5 Then said these men, We shall not find any wrongdoing in Daniyel, except we find it against him concerning the Torah of his Ahloha.

6 Then these governors and nobles assembled together to the melech and said this to him, Melech Daryawesh, live le-olam-va-ed.

7 All the governors of the malchut, the governors and the nobles, the counselors and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal decree and to make a firm decree, that whoever shall ask a petition from any Ahloha, or man for thirty yamim, except you, O melech, he shall be cast into a den of lions.

8 Now, O melech, establish the decree and sign the edict, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which changes not.

9 So melech Daryawesh signed the writing and the decree.

10 Now when Daniyel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his bayit; and his windows being open in his room toward Yahrushalayim, he kneeled upon his knees three times a yom, and made tefillah and gave hodu before his Ahloha, as he did before.

11 Then these men assembled and found Daniyel praying and making supplication before his Ahloha.

12 Then they came near and spoke before the melech concerning the melech’s decree; Did you not sign a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any Ahloha, or man within thirty yamim, except you, O melech, shall be cast into the den of lions? The melech answered and said, The thing is emet, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which changes not.

13 Then they answered and said before the melech, That Daniyel, which is of the children of the captivity of Yahudah, does not regard you, O melech, nor the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a yom.

14 Then the melech, when he heard these words, was very displeased within himself and set his lev against Daniyel to deliver him: and he labored until the going down of the shemesh to deliver him.

15 Then these men assembled to the melech and said to the melech, Know, O melech, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree which the melech establishes can be changed.

16 Then the melech gave the command and they brought Daniyel and cast him into a den of lions. Now the melech spoke and said to Daniyel, your Ahloha whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.

17 And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the melech sealed it with his own signet and with the signet of his nobles; that the situation concerning Daniyel may not be changed.

18 Then the melech went to his palace and passed the lyla fasting: neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep left him.

19 Then the melech arose very early in the boker and went in a hurry to the den of lions.

20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a pained voice to Daniyel: and the melech spoke and said to Daniyel, O Daniyel, eved of the living Ahloha, is your Ahloha, whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions?

21 Then said Daniyel to the melech, O melech, live le-olam-va-ed.

22 My Ahloha has sent His Heavenly Messenger and has shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before Him my innocence was found; and also before you, O melech, have I done no harm.

23 Then was the melech exceedingly in simcha for him and commanded that they should take Daniyel up out of the den. So Daniyel was taken up out of the den and no manner of hurt was found upon him because he believed in his Ahloha.

24 And the melech commanded and they brought those men who had accused Daniyel and they cast them into the den of lions, with their children and their wives; and the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces before they reached the bottom of the den.

25 Then melech Daryawesh wrote to all peoples, goyim and languages, that dwell in all the olam; Shalom be multiplied to you.

26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my malchut men tremble and fear before the Ahloha of Daniyel: for He is the living Ahloha, steadfast le-olam-va-ed and His malchut shall not be destroyed and His dominion shall be even to the end of time.

27 He delivers and rescues and He works signs and wonders in the shamayim and in the olam and He has delivered Daniyel from the power of the lions.

28 So Daniyel prospered in the malchut of Daryawesh and in the malchut of Koresh the Persian.

7 In the first year of Belshatzar melech of Bavel Daniyel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, giving a summary of the matters.

2 Daniyel spoke and said, I saw in my vision by lyla and, see, the four winds of the shamayim strove upon the Great Sea.

3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, different one from another.

4 The first was like a lion and had eagle’s wings: I saw until the wings of it were plucked and it was lifted up from the olam and made to stand upon the feet as a man and a man’s lev was given to it.

5 And see another beast, a second, like a bear and it raised up itself on one side and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said this to it, Arise, devour much flesh.

6 After this I saw and see another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

7 After this I saw in the lyla visions and see a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and exceedingly strong; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and broke in pieces and trampled down the residue with its feet: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

8 I considered the horns and, see, there came up among them another little horn, before whom three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots: and, see, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man and a mouth speaking proud things.

9 I saw until the thrones were cast down and the Ancient of Yamim did sit, whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like the pure wool: His kesay was like the fiery flame and His wheels as burning fire.

10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: a thousand thousands served Him and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him: the Shophet was seated and the scrolls were opened.

11 Then because of the voice of the proud words that the horn spoke: I saw even until the beast was slain and his gooff destroyed and given to the burning flame.

12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

13 I saw in the lyla visions and, see, one looking like The Bar Enosh came with the clouds of the shamayim and came to the Ancient of Yamim, and they brought Him near before Him.

14 And there was given to Him dominion and tifereth and a malchut that all peoples, goyim and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away and His malchut that shall not be destroyed.

15 I Daniyel was grieved in my ruach in the middle of my gooff and the visions of my head troubled me.

16 I came near to one of them that stood by, and asked him the emet of all this. So he told me and made me understand the interpretation of these things.

17 These great beasts, which are four, are four melechim, which shall arise out of the olam.

18 But the kidushim of the Most High shall take the malchut and possess the malchut, le-olam-va-ed.

19 Then I desired to know the emet of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, whose teeth were of iron and his nails of brass; who devoured, broke in pieces and trampled the others with his feet;

20 And of the ten horns that were in his head and of the others that came up and before whom the three fell; even that horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more proud than his companions.

21 I saw and the same horn makes war with the kidushim and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of Yamim came and mishpat was given to the kidushim of the Most High; and the time came that the kidushim possessed the malchut.

23 This he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth malchut upon the olam, which shall be diverse from all malchutim and shall devour the whole olam and shall tread it down and break it in pieces.

24 And the ten horns out of this malchut are ten melechim that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be different from the first and he shall subdue three melechim.

25 And he shall speak proud words against the Most High and shall wear out the kidushim of the Most High and intends to change the appointed times and Torot: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and half a time.

26 But his mishpat shall be established and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it at the end of the age.

27 And the malchut and dominion and the greatness of the malchut under the whole shamayim, shall be given to the people of the kidushim of the Most High, whose malchut is an everlasting malchut and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.

28 This is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniyel, my thoughts much troubled me and my face changed: but I kept the matter in my lev.

8 In the third year of the malchut of melech Belshatzar a vision appeared to me, Daniyel, like what appeared to me the first time.

2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Eylam; and I saw in a vision and I was by the river of Ulai.

3 Then I lifted up my eyes and saw and, see, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other and

the higher came up last.

4 I saw the ram pushing westward and northward and southward; so that no beasts could stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will and became great.

5 And as I was considering, see, a male goat came from the west on the face of the whole olam and touched not the ground: and the goat had a very noticeable horn between his eyes.

6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had there seen standing before the river and ran in to him with the fury of his power.

7 And I saw him come close to the ram and he was moved by bitterness against him and smote the ram and broke his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.

8 Therefore the male goat grew very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and in its place came up four very noticeable ones toward the four winds of the shamayim.

9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which grew exceedingly great, toward the south and toward the east and toward the pleasant land.

10 And it grew great, even to the hosts of the shamayim; and it cast down some of the hosts and of the cochavim to fall to the olam and trampled upon them.

11 Yes, he magnified himself even to the Sar of the host, and he took the daily sacrifice away and His Kadosh-Place was cast down.

12 And an army was given to him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression and it cast down the eternal emet to the ground; and it acted and prospered.

13 Then I heard one kadosh speaking and another kadosh said to the one who spoke, When shall this vision come to be concerning the daily sacrifice and the abomination of desolation, to give both the Kadosh-Place and the army to be trampled under foot?

14 And he said to me, Until two thousand three hundred yamim; then shall the Kadosh-Place be cleansed.

15 And it came to pass, when I, Daniyel, had seen the vision and sought for the meaning, then, see; there stood before me the appearance of a Man.

16 And I heard a Man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called and said, Gavriel, make this man to understand the vision.

17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid and fell upon my face: but he said to me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall the vision be done.

18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me and set me upright.

19 And he said, Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the end times of wrath: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

20 The ram which you saw having two horns are the melechim of Media and Persia.

21 And the rough goat is the melech of Greece: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first melech.

22 Now that being broken, where the four stood up in its place, four malchutim shall stand up out of the nation, but not in its power.

23 And in the latter time of their malchut, when the transgressors have filled their measure with sin, a melech of fierce purpose, skilled in the hidden things, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy with intensity and shall prosper and act and shall seek to destroy the mighty and the kadosh people.

25 And through his skilled policies he shall cause deception to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his lev and by shalom shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Sar of all Princes; but he shall be broken and defeated easily.

26 And the vision of the mornings and the evenings that was told is emet: Therefore seal the vision; for it shall come to pass after many yamim.

27 And I Daniyel fainted and was sick certain yamim; afterwards I rose up and did the melech’s business; and I was still amazed at the vision, but no one else understood it.

9 In the first year of Daryawesh the son of Achashverosh, of the zera of the Medes, who was made melech over the realm of the Chaldeans;

2 In the first year of his malchut I Daniyel understood by the Katuv scrolls, the number of the years, stated in The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that came to Yirmeyahu the navi, to accomplish the seventy years regarding the desolation of Yahrushalayim.

3 And I set my face to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Ahloha, to seek by tefillah and supplication, with fasting and sackcloth and ashes:

4 And I made tefillah to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Ahloha and made my confession and said, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the great and dreadful El, keeping the brit and rachamim to them that love Him and to them that keep His mitzvoth;

5 We have sinned and have committed iniquity and have done wickedly and have rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and from Your tzadik mishpatim:

6 Neither have we listened to Your avadim the neviim, who spoke in Your Name to our melechim, our nobles and our ahvot and to all the people of the land.

7 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, tzedakah belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as at this yom; to the men of Yahudah and to the inhabitants of Yahrushalayim, and to kol Yisrael, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries where You have driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against You.

8 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to us belongs shame of face, to our melechim, to our nobles and to our ahvot because we have sinned against You.

9 To 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahloha belong rachamim and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him;

10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahloha, to have our halacha in His Torot, which He set before us by His avadim the neviim.

11 Yes, kol Yisrael has transgressed Your Torah, even by departing, that they might not obey Your voice; therefore the curse-ha Allah is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the Torah of Moshe the eved of Ahloha because we have sinned against Him.

12 And He has confirmed His Words, which He spoke against us and against our leaders that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole shamayim has not been done such destruction as has been done upon Yahrushalayim.

13 As it is written in the Torah of Moshe, all this evil has come upon us: yet we did not make our tefillot before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahloha, that we might make teshuvah from our iniquities and understand Your emet.

14 Therefore has 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 watched over the evil and brought it upon us: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahloha is tzadik in all His works which He does: for we did not obey His voice.

15 And now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahloha, that has brought your people forth out of the land of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand and has gotten great fame for Your Name, as at this yom; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

16 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, according to all Your tzedakah, I ask You, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Yahrushalayim, Your kadosh har: because for our sins and for the iniquities of our ahvot, Yahrushalayim and your people have become a reproach to all that are around us.

17 Now therefore, O our Ahloha, hear the tefillah of Your eved and his supplications and cause Your face to shine upon Your Kadosh-Place that is desolate, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s sake.

18 O my Ahloha, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your Name: for we do not present our supplications before You because of our tzedakah, but because of Your great rachamim.

19 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, hear; O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, forgive; O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, listen and do not wait, for Your own sake, O my Ahloha: for Your city and Your people are called by Your Name.

20 And while I was still speaking and praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Yisrael, and presenting my supplication before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Ahloha for the kadosh har of my Ahloha;

21 Yes, while I was still speaking in tefillah, even the man Gavriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, came close to me and touched me, around the time of the maariv offering.

22 And he informed me and talked with me and said, O Daniyel, I am now come forth to give you skill and binah.

23 At the beginning of your supplications the commandment came forth and I am come to explain things to you; for you are greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter and consider the vision.

24 Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your kadosh city to finish the transgression and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting tzedakah, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Kadosh.

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of thecommandment to restore and to rebuild Yahrushalayim until The Moshiach The Nagid shall be seven weeks plus sixty two weeks: the street shall be built again and the wall, even in troubled times.

26 And after sixty-two weeks ye-karet Moshiach; shall Moshiach be cut off, but not for Himself: and the anointing destroyed and the people of the sar that shall come, shall destroy the city and the Kadosh-Place; and the end of it shall be with a flood, and to the end of the war, desolations are determined.

27 And he shall confirm the brit with many for one week: and in the middle of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease and on the wing/corner of abominations shall be the one who makes it desolate, even until the complete end of the olam hazeh, which has been determined and shall be poured upon the one who lays waste.

10 In the third year of Koresh melech of Persia a thing was revealed to Daniyel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was emet, but the time appointed was a long time in the future: and he understood the thing and had binah of the vision.

2 In those yamim I Daniyel was mourning three full weeks.

3 I ate no desirable lechem, neither came meat, or wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, until three whole weeks were fulfilled.

4 And in the twenty-fourth yom of the first chodesh, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Tigris;

5 Then I lifted up my eyes and looked and see a certain Man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

6 His gooff also was like the beryl and His face as the appearance of lightning and His eyes as lamps of fire and His strong ones and His feet like polished brass and the voice of His Words like the voice of a multitude.

7 And I Daniyel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great fear fell upon them, so that they ran away to hide themselves.

8 Therefore I was left alone and saw this great vision and there remained no strength in me: for my tifereth was destroyed in me and I retained no strength.

9 Yet I heard the voice of His Words: and when I heard the voice of His Words, then I was stunned lying with my face towards the ground.

10 And, see, a hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.

11 And He said to me, O Daniyel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you and stand up: for to you I am now sent. And when He had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling.

12 Then He said to me, Fear not, Daniyel: for from the first yom that you did set your lev to understand and to humble yourself before your Ahloha, your words were heard and I have come in response to your words.

13 But the sar of Persia withstood Me twenty-one yamim: but, see, Micha-El, one of the chief heavenly malachim, came to help Me; since I had been all alone with the sar of Persia.

14 Now I have come to make you understand what shall befall your people in the latter yamim: for the vision is yet for many yamim.

15 And when He had spoken such words to me, I set my face toward the ground and I became silent.

16 And, see, one who looked like the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth and spoke and said to Him that stood before me, O my Master because of the vision my pains are within me and I have retained no strength.

17 For how can the eved of this my Master talk with You my Master? As for me, there remains no strength left in me; neither is there breath left in me.

18 Then there came again the One with the appearance of a Man; who touched me and strengthened me,

19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: shalom aleichem, be strong, yes, be strong. And when He had spoken to me, I was strengthened and said, Let My Master speak; for you have strengthened me.

20 Then said He, Do you now know why I have come to you? And now will I return to fight with the sar of Persia: and when I am gone, see, the sar of Greece shall come.

21 But I will explain to you that which is noted in The Katuv of Emet: and there is none that stands with Me in these things, but Micha-El your sar.

11 And in the first year of Daryawesh the Mede, I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

2 And now will I explain to you the emet. Behold, there shall arise three melechim in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the rule of Greece.

3 And a mighty melech shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion and do according to his will.

4 And after he shall arise, his malchut shall be broken and shall be divided toward the four winds of the shamayim; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his malchut shall be plucked up, even for others beside these.

5 And the melech of the south shall be strong and one of his nobles; and he shall gain power over him and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

6 And at the end of some years they shall join themselves together; for the melech’s daughter of the south shall come to the melech of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up and they that brought her and he that begat her and he that strengthened her in these times.

7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one arise in his place, which shall come with an army and shall enter into the stronghold of the melech of the north and shall deal against them and shall prevail:

8 And shall also carry captive into Mitzrayim their Ahloha, with their nobles and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the melech of the north.

9 So the melech of the south shall come into his malchut and shall return into his own land.

10 But his sons shall be stirred up and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come and overflow and pass through: then shall he return and be stirred up, even to his stronghold.

11 And the melech of the south shall be moved with bitterness and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the melech of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

12 And when he has taken away the multitude, his lev shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

13 For the melech of the north shall return and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches.

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the melech of the south: also the robbers of your people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.

15 So the melech of the north shall come and build a siege and take the most protected cities: and the strong ones of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

16 But he that comes against him shall do according to his own will and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the Splendid Land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole malchut and upright ones with him; this shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

18 After this shall he turn his face to the coastlands and shall take many: but a ruler shall bring the reproach against him to an end; with the reproach removed he shall turn back upon him.

19 Then he shall turn his face toward the strongholds of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall and not be found.

20 Then shall stand up in his place a raiser of taxes in the tifereth of the malchut: but within a few yamim he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

21 And in his place shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the kavod of the malchut: but he shall come in shalom and obtain the malchut by flatteries.

22 And with the force of a flood shall they be swept away from before him and shall be broken; yes, also the sar of the brit.

23 And after the brit made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up and shall become strong with a small people.

24 He shall enter in shalom even upon the richest places of the province; and he shall do that which his ahvot have not done, nor his ahvot’s ahvot; he shall scatter among them the prey and spoil and riches: yes and he shall devise his plots against the strongholds, but only for a time.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the melech of the south with a great army; and the melech of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall devise plots against him.

26 Yes, those that ate of his food shall destroy him and his army shall be swept away: and many shall fall down slain.

27 And both these melechim’s levavot shall desire to do mischief and they shall speak lies at the same shulchan; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his lev shall be against the kadosh brit; and he shall act and return to his own land.

29 At the appointed time he shall return and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter times.

30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved and return and have indignation against the kadosh brit: and shall act; he shall even return and consider and favor them that forsake the kadosh brit.

31 And forces shall be mustered by him and they shall pollute the Kadosh-Place of strength and shall take away the daily sacrifice and they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate.

32 And such as do wickedly against the brit shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their Ahloha shall be strong and do mighty acts.

33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many yamim.

34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be assisted with a little help: but many shall join them with flatteries.

35 And some of them of binah shall fall, to test them and to purge them and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

36 And the melech shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every el and shall speak awful things against El-Eliym, and shall prosper until the indignation be accomplished: for what is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the elohai of his ahvot, nor the desire of women, nor regard any Ahloha: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his place, shall he esteem Ahloha of force: and an Ahloha whom his ahvot knew not shall he esteem with gold and silver and with precious stones and pleasant things.

39 This shall he do in the best strongholds with a strange Ahloha, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with tifereth: and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for gain.

40 And at the time of the end shall the melech of the south push at him: and the melech of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with mirkavot and with horsemen and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries and shall overflow and pass over.

41 He shall enter also into the Splendid Land and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom and Moab and the chief of the children of Ammon.

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Mitzrayim shall not escape.

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver and over all the precious things of Mitzrayim: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be found at his feet.

44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to do away with many.

45 And he shall pitch the tents of his palace between the seas in the splendid kadosh har; yet he shall come to his end and none shall be able to help him.

12 And at that time shall Micha-El stand still, the great sar of battle who stands over the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the scroll.

2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the olam shall awake, some to everlasting chayim and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that perceive tzedakah as the cochavim le-olam-va-ed.

4 But you, O Daniyel, hide the words and seal the scroll, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro and da’at shall be increased.

5 Then I Daniyel looked and, see, there stood two others, the one on this side of the bank of the river and the other on that side of the bank of the river.

6 And one said to the Man clothed in linen, who was upon the mayim of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?

7 And I heard the Man clothed in linen, who was upon the mayim of the river, when He held up His right hand and His left hand to the shamayim and swore by Him that lives le-olam-va-ed that it shall be for a time, times and a half a time; and when He shall have accomplished the scattering and the restored power of the kadosh people, all these things shall be finished.

8 And I heard, but I understood not: then I said, O my Master, what shall be the end of these matters?

9 And he said, Go your derech, Daniyel: for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.

10 Many shall be purified and made white, through Tribulation; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred ninety yamim.

12 Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred thirty fifth yom.

13 But go you your derech until the end of the age: for you shall rest and stand up in your portion at the end of the age.
