Afterthis I saw in the nightvisions, and behold a fourthbeast, dreadful and terrible, and strongexceedingly; and it had greatironteeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residuewith the feet of it: and it was diversefrom all the beaststhatwerebefore it; and it had ten horns.
I considered the horns, and, behold, therecame up amongthemanotherlittlehorn, beforewhomtherewerethree of the firsthornsplucked up by the roots: and, behold, in thishornwereeyeslike the eyes of man, and a mouthspeakinggreatthings.
I beheldtill the throneswerecastdown, and the Ancient of days did sit, whosegarment was white as snow, and the hair of his headlike the purewool: his throne was like the fieryflame, and his wheels as burningfire.
And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, shouldserve him: his dominion is an everlastingdominion, whichshall not passaway, and his kingdomthatwhichshall not be destroyed.
Then I wouldknow the truth of the fourthbeast, which was diversefrom all the others, exceedingdreadful, whoseteethwere of iron, and his nails of brass; whichdevoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residuewith his feet;
And of the ten hornsthatwere in his head, and of the otherwhichcame up, and beforewhomthreefell; even of thathornthat had eyes, and a mouththatspakeverygreatthings, whoselook was morestoutthan his fellows.
And he shallspeakgreatwordsagainst the mostHigh, and shallwear out the saints of the mostHigh, and think to changetimes and laws: and theyshall be giveninto his handuntil a time and times and the dividing of time.
And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdomunder the wholeheaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the mostHigh, whosekingdom is an everlastingkingdom, and all dominionsshallserve and obey him.
