1 但以理再見異象伯沙撒在位第年,在先前顯給我的異象,再有一個異象向我但以理顯現。

2 我在異象中觀見自己在以攔省書珊城裡;我在異象中繼續觀見自己在烏萊河的岸邊。

3 公綿我舉目觀隻公綿,站在河邊;牠有兩個角,兩角都很,但低不;那較的角是較遲長出來的。

4 見那公綿向西、向北向南撞去,沒有走獸能在牠面前站立得住,也沒有能拯救脫離牠的;牠任意而行,狂妄自大。

5 山羊我正在思考的時候,忽然有一隻公山羊從西而,走遍全地,快得腳不沾塵;這山羊兩眼之間有一個顯眼的角。

6 牠走到我先前所見站在河邊、那有兩個角的公綿那裡去,忿怒地向公綿猛力衝去。

7 見公山走近公綿,向牠發怒,撞擊牠,折斷牠的兩個角;公綿在牠面前站立不住,牠把公綿撞倒在地上,又用腳踐踏牠,沒有能拯救公綿脫離牠的。

8 這公山羊非常狂妄自;但在牠強盛的時候,那角被折斷了;在角原來的地方,有個顯眼的角向方長出來。

9 從這四個角中的個角,又長出個小角來,這小角向南、向東和向榮美之地,不斷強大起來。

10 牠漸漸長大,象,把一些象和星星摔落在地上,用腳踐踏。

11 牠狂妄自大,要高及天象之君;牠除掉獻給天象之君的常獻祭,又拆毀他的聖所。

12 因罪過的緣故,聖民(“聖民”和8:10、11的“天象”原文是同一個字)連同常獻的祭都交牠;牠把真理丟在地上,任意而行,凡事順利。

13 者在說話,又有者問他:“這個關於除掉常獻的祭,和引致毀壞的罪過,以及踐踏所和民(“民”和8:10、11的“天象”原文是同個字)的異象,要到幾時呢?”

14 他對我:“要到二晚上早晨所才得潔淨。”

15 加百列解釋異象的意義我但以理見了這異象以後,就想明白它的意義;忽然有一位外貌像人的,站在我面前。

16 我又見從烏萊河兩岸之間,有人的聲音呼叫:“加百列啊!你要使這人明白這異象。”

17 他就到我所站的地方;他到的時候,我就害怕,臉伏在地;他對我:“人子啊,你要明白!這異象是關於末後的時期的。”

18 他和我說話的時候,我沉睡了,臉伏在地;他撫摩我,使我兩腳站起來。

19 :“看哪!我要告訴你在神忿怒審判的後期必要發生的事,因為這是有關那末後的定期的。

20 你所見那有兩個角的公綿,就是瑪代和波斯

21 那多毛的公山羊就是希臘;那兩眼之間的角就是第一

22 至於代替那折斷了的角,在牠原來的地方長出來的個角,就是個要從他的國中興起的王國,只是沒有他的權勢。

23 “在這四國的後期,犯罪的人惡貫滿盈的時候,必有一個面貌兇惡的興起,他詭計多端。

24 他的權勢強大,卻不是出於自己的能力;他必造成驚人的毀滅;他任意而行,凡事順利;他必毀滅有強力的,又毀滅聖民。

25 他運用詭計,行騙無往而不利;他心裡狂妄自大;他必乘人不備的時候,毀滅許多人;他要起來攻擊萬君之君,最後卻非因人的被毀滅。

26 關於所說二千三百個晚上早晨異象是真的,但你要把這異象封住,因為那是關於將來許多的年日的。”

27 我但以理精疲力竭,病了幾,後來我起來,辦理的事務,但我仍因這異象驚駭不已,不明白它的意思。
