11“Then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North, who will raise a large army,
but it will be defeated.
12When the army is carried off, the king of the South will be
filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands, yet he
will not remain triumphant.
13For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a
huge army fully equipped.
14“In those times many will rise against the king of the South.
Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success.
15Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South
will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have
the strength to stand.
16The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to
stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful
Land and will have the power to destroy it.
17He will determine to come with the might of his entire
kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South.
And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plans will not succeed or help
18Then he will turn his attention to the coastlands
and will take many of them, but a commander will put an end
to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him.
19After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own
country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more.
20“His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the
or in battle.
21“He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has
not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it
22Then an overwhelming army will be swept away before
him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed.
23After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully, and with only a few people he will rise to power.
24When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did.
He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers. He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.
25“With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South.
The king of the South will wage war with a large and very
powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the
plots devised against him.
26Those who eat from the king’s provisions will try to destroy
him; his army will be swept away, and many will fall in battle.
27The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time.
28The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth,
but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take
action against it
29“At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but
this time the outcome will be different from what it was before.
30Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will
Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake
the holy covenant.
31“His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple
fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set
up the abomination that causes desolation.
32With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the
covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist
33“Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered.
34When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who
are not sincere will join them.
35Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined,
purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
