Daniel 11 - World English Bible with Hebrew
1 "As for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to confirm and strengthen him.
1 וַאֲנִי֙ בִּשְׁנַ֣ת אַחַ֔ת לְדָרְיָ֖וֶשׁ הַמָּדִ֑י עָמְדִ֛י לְמַחֲזִ֥יק וּלְמָעֹ֖וז לֹֽו׃
2 Now will I show you the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and when he has grown strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.
2 וְעַתָּ֕ה אֱמֶ֖ת אַגִּ֣יד לָ֑ךְ הִנֵּה־עֹוד֩ שְׁלֹשָׁ֨ה מְלָכִ֜ים עֹמְדִ֣ים לְפָרַ֗ס וְהָֽרְבִיעִי֙ יַעֲשִׁ֤יר עֹֽשֶׁר־גָּדֹול֙ מִכֹּ֔ל וּכְחֶזְקָתֹ֣ו בְעָשְׁרֹ֔ו יָעִ֣יר הַכֹּ֔ל אֵ֖ת מַלְכ֥וּת יָוָֽן׃
3 A mighty king shall stand up, who shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.
3 וְעָמַ֖ד מֶ֣לֶךְ גִּבֹּ֑ור וּמָשַׁל֙ מִמְשָׁ֣ל רַ֔ב וְעָשָׂ֖ה כִּרְצֹונֹֽו׃
4 When he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of the sky, but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others besides these.
4 וּכְעָמְדֹו֙ תִּשָּׁבֵ֣ר מַלְכוּתֹ֔ו וְתֵחָ֕ץ לְאַרְבַּ֖ע רוּחֹ֣ות הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם וְלֹ֣א לְאַחֲרִיתֹ֗ו וְלֹ֤א כְמָשְׁלֹו֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר מָשָׁ֔ל כִּ֤י תִנָּתֵשׁ֙ מַלְכוּתֹ֔ו וְלַאֲחֵרִ֖ים מִלְּבַד־אֵֽלֶּה׃
5 The king of the south shall be strong, and [one] of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.
5 וְיֶחֱזַ֥ק מֶֽלֶךְ־הַנֶּ֖גֶב וּמִן־שָׂרָ֑יו וְיֶחֱזַ֤ק עָלָיו֙ וּמָשָׁ֔ל מִמְשָׁ֥ל רַ֖ב מֶמְשַׁלְתֹּֽו׃
6 At the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and those who brought her, and he who became the father of her, and he who strengthened her in those times.
6 וּלְקֵ֤ץ שָׁנִים֙ יִתְחַבָּ֔רוּ וּבַ֣ת מֶֽלֶךְ־הַנֶּ֗גֶב תָּבֹוא֙ אֶל־מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֔ון לַעֲשֹׂ֖ות מֵישָׁרִ֑ים וְלֹֽא־תַעְצֹ֞ר כֹּ֣וחַ הַזְּרֹ֗ועַ וְלֹ֤א יַעֲמֹד֙ וּזְרֹעֹ֔ו וְתִנָּתֵ֨ן הִ֤יא וּמְבִיאֶ֙יהָ֙ וְהַיֹּ֣לְדָ֔הּ וּמַחֲזִקָ֖הּ בָּעִתִּֽים׃
7 But out of a shoot from her roots shall one stand up in his place, who shall come to the army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail.
7 וְעָמַ֛ד מִנֵּ֥צֶר שָׁרָשֶׁ֖יהָ כַּנֹּ֑ו וְיָבֹ֣א אֶל־הַחַ֗יִל וְיָבֹא֙ בְּמָעֹוז֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֔ון וְעָשָׂ֥ה בָהֶ֖ם וְהֶחֱזִֽיק׃
8 Also their gods, with their molten images, [and] with their goodly vessels of silver and of gold, shall he carry captive into Egypt; and he shall refrain some years from the king of the north.
8 וְגַ֣ם אֱֽלֹהֵיהֶ֡ם עִם־נְסִֽכֵיהֶם֩ עִם־כְּלֵ֨י חֶמְדָּתָ֜ם כֶּ֧סֶף וְזָהָ֛ב בַּשְּׁבִ֖י יָבִ֣א מִצְרָ֑יִם וְהוּא֙ שָׁנִ֣ים יַעֲמֹ֔ד מִמֶּ֖לֶךְ הַצָּפֹֽון3׃
9 He shall come into the realm of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land.
9 וּבָ֗א בְּמַלְכוּת֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּ֔גֶב וְשָׁ֖ב אֶל־אַדְמָתֹֽו׃
10 His sons shall war, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces, which shall come on, and overflow, and pass through; and they shall return and war, even to his fortress.
10 וּבְנֹו וּבָנָ֣יו יִתְגָּר֗וּ וְאָסְפוּ֙ הֲמֹון֙ חֲיָלִ֣ים רַבִּ֔ים וּבָ֥א בֹ֖וא וְשָׁטַ֣ף וְעָבָ֑ר וְיָשֹׁ֥ב וְיִתְגָּרוּ וְיִתְגָּרֶ֖ה עַד־ מָעֻזָּה מָעֻזֹּֽו׃
11 The king of the south shall be moved with anger, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, and the multitude shall be given into his hand.
11 וְיִתְמַרְמַר֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּ֔גֶב וְיָצָ֕א וְנִלְחַ֥ם עִמֹּ֖ו עִם־מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֑ון וְהֶעֱמִיד֙ הָמֹ֣ון רָ֔ב וְנִתַּ֥ן הֶהָמֹ֖ון בְּיָדֹֽו׃
12 The multitude shall be lifted up, and his heart shall be exalted; and he shall cast down tens of thousands, but he shall not prevail.
12 וְנִשָּׂ֥א הֶהָמֹ֖ון יָרוּם וְרָ֣ם לְבָבֹ֑ו וְהִפִּ֛יל3 רִבֹּאֹ֖ות וְלֹ֥א יָעֹֽוז׃
13 The king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, [even of] years, with a great army and with much substance.
13 וְשָׁב֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֔ון וְהֶעֱמִ֣יד הָמֹ֔ון רַ֖ב מִן־הָרִאשֹׁ֑ון וּלְקֵ֨ץ הָֽעִתִּ֤ים שָׁנִים֙ יָ֣בֹוא בֹ֔וא בְּחַ֥יִל גָּדֹ֖ול וּבִרְכ֥וּשׁ רָֽב׃
14 In those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the children of the violent among your people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall fall.
14 וּבָעִתִּ֣ים הָהֵ֔ם רַבִּ֥ים יַֽעַמְד֖וּ עַל־מֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּ֑גֶב וּבְנֵ֣י׀ פָּרִיצֵ֣י עַמְּךָ֗ יִֽנַּשְּׂא֛וּ לְהַעֲמִ֥יד חָזֹ֖ון וְנִכְשָֽׁלוּ׃
15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take a well-fortified city: and the forces of the south shall not stand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to stand.
15 וְיָבֹא֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֔ון וְיִשְׁפֹּךְ֙ סֹֽולֲלָ֔ה וְלָכַ֖ד עִ֣יר מִבְצָרֹ֑ות וּזְרֹעֹ֤ות הַנֶּ֙גֶב֙ לֹ֣א יַעֲמֹ֔דוּ וְעַם֙ מִבְחָרָ֔יו וְאֵ֥ין כֹּ֖חַ לַעֲמֹֽד׃
16 But he who comes against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the glorious land, and in his hand shall be destruction.
16 וְיַ֨עַשׂ הַבָּ֤א אֵלָיו֙ כִּרְצֹונֹ֔ו וְאֵ֥ין עֹומֵ֖ד לְפָנָ֑יו וְיַעֲמֹ֥ד בְּאֶֽרֶץ־הַצְּבִ֖י וְכָלָ֥ה בְיָדֹֽו׃
17 He shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and with him equitable conditions; and he shall perform them: and he shall give him the daughter of women, to corrupt her; but she shall not stand, neither be for him.
17 וְיָשֵׂ֣ם׀ פָּ֠נָיו לָבֹ֞וא בְּתֹ֧קֶף כָּל־מַלְכוּתֹ֛ו וִישָׁרִ֥ים עִמֹּ֖ו וְעָשָׂ֑ה וּבַ֤ת הַנָּשִׁים֙ יִתֶּן־לֹ֣ו לְהַשְׁחִיתָ֔הּ וְלֹ֥א תַעֲמֹ֖ד וְלֹא־לֹ֥ו תִהְיֶֽה׃
18 After this shall he turn his face to the isles, and shall take many: but a prince shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yes, moreover, he shall cause his reproach to turn on him.
18 וְיָשֵׁב וְיָשֵׂ֧ם3׀ פָּנָ֛יו לְאִיִּ֖ים וְלָכַ֣ד רַבִּ֑ים וְהִשְׁבִּ֨ית קָצִ֤ין חֶרְפָּתֹו֙ לֹ֔ו בִּלְתִּ֥י חֶרְפָּתֹ֖ו יָשִׁ֥יב לֹֽו׃
19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fortresses of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found.
19 וְיָשֵׁ֣ב פָּנָ֔יו לְמָעוּזֵּ֖י אַרְצֹ֑ו וְנִכְשַׁ֥ל וְנָפַ֖ל וְלֹ֥א יִמָּצֵֽא׃
20 Then shall stand up in his place one who shall cause a tax collector to pass through the kingdom to maintain its glory; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.
20 וְעָמַ֧ד עַל־כַּנֹּ֛ו מַעֲבִ֥יר נֹוגֵ֖שׂ הֶ֣דֶר מַלְכ֑וּת וּבְיָמִ֤ים אֲחָדִים֙ יִשָּׁבֵ֔ר וְלֹ֥א בְאַפַּ֖יִם וְלֹ֥א בְמִלְחָמָֽה׃
21 In his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
21 וְעָמַ֤ד עַל־כַּנֹּו֙ נִבְזֶ֔ה וְלֹא־נָתְנ֥וּ עָלָ֖יו הֹ֣וד מַלְכ֑וּת וּבָ֣א בְשַׁלְוָ֔ה וְהֶחֱזִ֥יק מַלְכ֖וּת בַּחֲלַקְלַקֹּֽות׃
22 The overwhelming forces shall be overwhelmed from before him, and shall be broken; yes, also the prince of the covenant.
22 וּזְרֹעֹ֥ות הַשֶּׁ֛טֶף יִשָּׁטְפ֥וּ מִלְּפָנָ֖יו וְיִשָּׁבֵ֑רוּ וְגַ֖ם נְגִ֥יד בְּרִֽית׃
23 After the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; for he shall come up, and shall become strong, with a small people.
23 וּמִן־הִֽתְחַבְּר֥וּת אֵלָ֖יו יַעֲשֶׂ֣ה מִרְמָ֑ה וְעָלָ֥ה וְעָצַ֖ם בִּמְעַט־גֹּֽוי׃
24 In time of security shall he come even on the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance: yes, he shall devise his devices against the strongholds, even for a time.
24 בְּשַׁלְוָ֞ה וּבְמִשְׁמַנֵּ֣י מְדִינָה֮ יָבֹוא֒ וְעָשָׂ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֨ר לֹא־עָשׂ֤וּ אֲבֹתָיו֙ וַאֲבֹ֣ות אֲבֹתָ֔יו בִּזָּ֧ה וְשָׁלָ֛ל וּרְכ֖וּשׁ לָהֶ֣ם יִבְזֹ֑ור וְעַ֧ל מִבְצָרִ֛ים יְחַשֵּׁ֥ב מַחְשְׁבֹתָ֖יו וְעַד־עֵֽת׃
25 He shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall war in battle with an exceeding great and mighty army; but he shall not stand; for they shall devise devices against him.
25 וְיָעֵר֩ כֹּחֹ֨ו וּלְבָבֹ֜ו עַל־מֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּגֶב֮ בְּחַ֣יִל גָּדֹול֒ וּמֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּ֗גֶב יִתְגָּרֶה֙ לַמִּלְחָמָ֔ה בְּחַֽיִל־גָּדֹ֥ול וְעָצ֖וּם עַד־מְאֹ֑ד וְלֹ֣א יַעֲמֹ֔ד כִּֽי־יַחְשְׁב֥וּ עָלָ֖יו מַחֲשָׁבֹֽות׃
26 Yes, they who eat of his dainties shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow; and many shall fall down slain.
26 וְאֹכְלֵ֧י פַת־בָּגֹ֛ו יִשְׁבְּר֖וּהוּ וְחֵילֹ֣ו יִשְׁטֹ֑וף וְנָפְל֖וּ חֲלָלִ֥ים רַבִּֽים׃
27 As for both these kings, their hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table: but it shall not prosper; for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.
27 וּשְׁנֵיהֶ֤ם הַמְּלָכִים֙ לְבָבָ֣ם לְמֵרָ֔ע וְעַל־שֻׁלְחָ֥ן אֶחָ֖ד כָּזָ֣ב יְדַבֵּ֑רוּ וְלֹ֣א תִצְלָ֔ח כִּי־עֹ֥וד קֵ֖ץ לַמֹּועֵֽד׃
28 Then shall he return into his land with great substance; and his heart [shall be] against the holy covenant; and he shall do [his pleasure], and return to his own land.
28 וְיָשֹׁ֤ב אַרְצֹו֙ בִּרְכ֣וּשׁ גָּדֹ֔ול וּלְבָבֹ֖ו עַל־בְּרִ֣ית קֹ֑דֶשׁ וְעָשָׂ֖ה וְשָׁ֥ב לְאַרְצֹֽו׃
29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former.
29 לַמֹּועֵ֥ד יָשׁ֖וּב וּבָ֣א בַנֶּ֑גֶב וְלֹֽא־תִהְיֶ֥ה כָרִאשֹׁנָ֖ה וְכָאַחֲרֹנָֽה׃
30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall do [his pleasure]: he shall even return, and have regard to those who forsake the holy covenant.
30 וּבָ֨אוּ בֹ֜ו צִיִּ֤ים כִּתִּים֙ וְנִכְאָ֔ה וְשָׁ֛ב וְזָעַ֥ם עַל־בְּרִֽית־קֹ֖ודֶשׁ וְעָשָׂ֑ה וְשָׁ֣ב וְיָבֵ֔ן עַל־עֹזְבֵ֖י בְּרִ֥ית קֹֽדֶשׁ׃
31 Forces shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the fortress, and shall take away the continual [burnt offering], and they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate.
31 וּזְרֹעִ֖ים מִמֶּ֣נּוּ יַעֲמֹ֑דוּ וְחִלְּל֞וּ הַמִּקְדָּ֤שׁ הַמָּעֹוז֙ וְהֵסִ֣ירוּ הַתָּמִ֔יד וְנָתְנ֖וּ הַשִּׁקּ֥וּץ מְשֹׁומֵֽם׃
32 Such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he pervert by flatteries; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and do [exploits].
32 וּמַרְשִׁיעֵ֣י בְרִ֔ית יַחֲנִ֖יף בַּחֲלַקֹּ֑ות וְעַ֛ם יֹדְעֵ֥י אֱלֹהָ֖יו יַחֲזִ֥קוּ וְעָשֽׂוּ׃
33 Those who are wise among the people shall instruct many; yet they shall fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, [many] days.
33 וּמַשְׂכִּ֣ילֵי עָ֔ם יָבִ֖ינוּ לָֽרַבִּ֑ים וְנִכְשְׁל֞וּ בְּחֶ֧רֶב וּבְלֶהָבָ֛ה בִּשְׁבִ֥י וּבְבִזָּ֖ה יָמִֽים׃
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves to them with flatteries.
34 וּבְהִכָּ֣שְׁלָ֔ם יֵעָזְר֖וּ עֵ֣זֶר מְעָ֑ט וְנִלְו֧וּ עֲלֵיהֶ֛ם רַבִּ֖ים בַּחֲלַקְלַקֹּֽות׃
35 Some of those who are wise shall fall, to refine them, and to purify, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed.
35 וּמִן־הַמַּשְׂכִּילִ֣ים יִכָּֽשְׁל֗וּ לִצְרֹ֥וף בָּהֶ֛ם וּלְבָרֵ֥ר וְלַלְבֵּ֖ן עַד־עֵ֣ת קֵ֑ץ כִּי־עֹ֖וד לַמֹּועֵֽד׃
36 The king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper until the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done.
36 וְעָשָׂ֨ה כִרְצֹונֹ֜ו הַמֶּ֗לֶךְ וְיִתְרֹומֵ֤ם וְיִתְגַּדֵּל֙ עַל־כָּל־אֵ֔ל וְעַל֙ אֵ֣ל אֵלִ֔ים יְדַבֵּ֖ר נִפְלָאֹ֑ות וְהִצְלִ֙יחַ֙ עַד־כָּ֣לָה זַ֔עַם כִּ֥י נֶחֱרָצָ֖ה נֶעֱשָֽׂתָה׃
37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall magnify himself above all.
37 וְעַל־אֱלֹהֵ֤י אֲבֹתָיו֙ לֹ֣א יָבִ֔ין וְעַל־חֶמְדַּ֥ת נָשִׁ֛ים וְעַֽל־כָּל־אֱלֹ֖והַּ לֹ֣א יָבִ֑ין כִּ֥י עַל־כֹּ֖ל יִתְגַּדָּֽל׃
38 But in his place shall he honor the god of fortresses; and a god whom his fathers didn't know shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
38 וְלֶאֱלֹ֙הַּ֙ מָֽעֻזִּ֔ים עַל־כַּנֹּ֖ו יְכַבֵּ֑ד וְלֶאֱלֹ֜והַּ אֲשֶׁ֧ר לֹא־יְדָעֻ֣הוּ אֲבֹתָ֗יו יְכַבֵּ֛ד בְּזָהָ֥ב וּבְכֶ֛סֶף וּבְאֶ֥בֶן יְקָרָ֖ה וּבַחֲמֻדֹֽות׃
39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god: whoever acknowledges [him] he will increase with glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price.
39 וְעָשָׂ֞ה לְמִבְצְרֵ֤י מָֽעֻזִּים֙ עִם־אֱלֹ֣והַּ נֵכָ֔ר אֲשֶׁ֥ר הִכִּיר יַכִּ֖יר יַרְבֶּ֣ה כָבֹ֑וד וְהִמְשִׁילָם֙ בָּֽרַבִּ֔ים וַאֲדָמָ֖ה יְחַלֵּ֥ק3 בִּמְחִֽיר׃
40 At the time of the end shall the king of the south contend with him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass through.
40 וּבְעֵ֣ת קֵ֗ץ יִתְנַגַּ֤ח עִמֹּו֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ הַנֶּ֔גֶב וְיִשְׂתָּעֵ֨ר עָלָ֜יו מֶ֣לֶךְ הַצָּפֹ֗ון בְּרֶ֙כֶב֙ וּבְפָ֣רָשִׁ֔ים וּבָאֳנִיֹּ֖ות רַבֹּ֑ות וּבָ֥א בַאֲרָצֹ֖ות וְשָׁטַ֥ף וְעָבָֽר׃
41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many [countries] shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
41 וּבָא֙ בְּאֶ֣רֶץ הַצְּבִ֔י וְרַבֹּ֖ות יִכָּשֵׁ֑לוּ וְאֵ֙לֶּה֙ יִמָּלְט֣וּ מִיָּדֹ֔ו אֱדֹ֣ום וּמֹואָ֔ב וְרֵאשִׁ֖ית בְּנֵ֥י עַמֹּֽון׃
42 He shall stretch forth his hand also on the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
42 וְיִשְׁלַ֥ח יָדֹ֖ו בַּאֲרָצֹ֑ות וְאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֔יִם לֹ֥א תִהְיֶ֖ה לִפְלֵיטָֽה׃
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
43 וּמָשַׁ֗ל בְּמִכְמַנֵּי֙ הַזָּהָ֣ב וְהַכֶּ֔סֶף וּבְכֹ֖ל חֲמֻדֹ֣ות מִצְרָ֑יִם וְלֻבִ֥ים וְכֻשִׁ֖ים בְּמִצְעָדָֽיו׃
44 But news out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him; and he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and utterly to sweep away many.
44 וּשְׁמֻעֹ֣ות יְבַהֲלֻ֔הוּ מִמִּזְרָ֖ח וּמִצָּפֹ֑ון וְיָצָא֙ בְּחֵמָ֣א גְדֹלָ֔ה לְהַשְׁמִ֥יד וּֽלְהַחֲרִ֖ים רַבִּֽים׃
45 He shall plant the tents of his palace between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
45 וְיִטַּע֙ אָהֳלֶ֣י אַפַּדְנֹ֔ו בֵּ֥ין יַמִּ֖ים לְהַר־צְבִי־קֹ֑דֶשׁ וּבָא֙ עַד־קִצֹּ֔ו וְאֵ֥ין עֹוזֵ֖ר לֹֽו׃
