The Holy Bible - The Book of Daniel, Chapter 11 (Latin)
1Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.
2And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
3And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.
4And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.
5And 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.
6And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to the king 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.
7But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:
8And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.
9So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.
10But 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 fortress.
11And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.
12And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.
13For the king 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.
14And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.
15So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.
16But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.
17He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus 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.
18After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.
19Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.
20Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.
21And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
22And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.
23And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.
24He shall enter peaceably even upon 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 the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
25And 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 be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.
26Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.
27And both of these kings' 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.
28Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.
29At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
30For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.
31And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
32And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33And 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 days.
34Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
35And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
36And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
39Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
40And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at 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 over.
41He shall enter also into the glorious 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.
42He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43But 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.
44But 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 make away many.
45And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
1ego autem ab anno primo Darii Medi stabam ut confortaretur et roboraretur
2et nunc veritatem annuntiabo tibi Ecce adhuc tres reges stabunt in Perside et quartus ditabitur opibus nimiis super omnes et cum invaluerit divitiis suis concitabit omnes adversum regnum Graeciae
3surget vero rex fortis et dominabitur potestate multa et faciet quod placuerit ei
4et cum steterit conteretur regnum eius et dividetur in quattuor ventos caeli sed non in posteros eius neque secundum potentiam illius qua dominatus est lacerabitur enim regnum eius etiam in externos exceptis his
5et confortabitur rex Austri et de principibus eius praevalebit super eum et dominabitur ditione multa enim dominatio eius
6et post finem annorum foederabuntur filiaque regis Austri veniet ad regem Aquilonis facere amicitiam et non obtinebit fortitudinem brachii nec stabit semen eius et tradetur ipsa et qui adduxerunt eam adolescentes eius et qui confortabant eam in temporibus
7et stabit de germine radicum eius plantatio et veniet cum exercitu et ingredietur provinciam regis Aquilonis et abutetur eis et obtinebit
8insuper et deos eorum et sculptilia vasa quoque pretiosa argenti et auri captiva ducet in aegyptum ipse praevalebit adversus regem Aquilonis
9et intrabit in regnum rex Austri et revertetur ad terram suam
10filii autem eius provocabuntur et congregabunt multitudinem exercituum plurimorum et veniet properans et inundans et revertetur et concitabitur et congredietur cum robere eius
11et provocatus rex Austri egredietur et pugnabit adversus regem Aquilonis et praeparabit multitudinem nimiam et dabitur multitudo in manu eius
12et capiet multitudinem et exaltabitur cor eius et deiiciet multa millia sed non praevalebit
13convertetur enim rex Aquilonis et praeparabit multitudinem multo maiorem quam prius et in fine temporum annorumque veniet properans cum exercitu magno et opibus nimiis
14et in temporibus illis multi consurgent adversus regem Austri filii quoque praevaricatorum populi tui extollentur ut impleant visionem et corruent
15et venit rex Aquilonis et comportabit aggerem et capiet urbes munitissimas et brachia Austri non sustinebunt et consurgent electi eius ad resistendum et non erit fortitudo
16et faciet veniens super eum iuxta placitum suum et non erit qui stet contra faciem eius et stabit in terra inclyta et consumetur in manu eius
17et ponet faciem suam ut veniat ad tenendum universum regnum eius et recta faciet cum eo et filiam feminarum dabit ei ut evertat illud et non stabit nec illius erit
18et convertet faciem suam ad insulas et capiet multas et cessare faciet principem opprobrii sui et opprobrium eius convertetur in eum
19et convertet faciem suam ad imperium terrae suae et impinget et corruet et non invenietur
20et stabit in loco eius vilissimus et indignus decore regio et in paucis diebus conteretur non in furore nec in praelio
21et stabit in loco eius despectus et non tribuetur ei honor regius et veniet clam et obtinebit regnum in fraudulentia
22et brachia pugnantis expugnabuntur a facie eius et conterentur insuper et dux foederis
23et post amicitias cum eo faciet dolum et ascendet et superabit in modico populo
24et abundantes et uberes urbes ingredietur et faciet quae non fecerunt patres eius et patres patrum eius rapinas et praedam et divinitas eorum dissipabit et contra firmissimas cogitationes inibit et hoc usque ad tempus
25et concitabitur fortitudo eius et cor eius adversum regem Austri in exercitu magno et rex Austri provocabitur ad bellum multis auxiliis et fortibus nimis et non stabunt quia inibunt adversus eum consilia
26et comedentes panem cum eo conterent illum exercitusque eius opprimetur et cadent interfecti plurimi
27duorum quoque regnum cor erit ut malefaciant et ad mensam unam mendacium loquentur et non proficient quia adhuc finis in aliud tempus
28et revertetur in terram suam cum opibus multis et cor eius adversum testamentum sanctum et faciet et revertetur in terram suam
29statuto tempore revertetur et veniet ad Austrum et non erit priori simile novissimum
30et veniet super eum Trieres et Romani et percutietur et revertetur et indignabitur contra testamentum sanctuarii et faciet reverteturque et cogitabit adversum eos qui dereliquerunt testamentum sanctuarii
31et brachia ex eo stabunt et polluent sanctuarium fortitudinis et auferent iuge sacrificium et dabunt abominationem in desolationem
32et impii in testamentum simulabunt fraudulenter populus autem sciens Deum suum obtinebit et faciet
33et docti in populo docebunt plurimos et ruent in gladio et in flamma et in captivitate et in rapina dierum
34cumque corruerint sublevabuntur auxilio parvulo et applicabuntur eis plurimi fraudulenter
35et de eruditis ruent ut conflentur et eligantur et dealbentur usque ad tempus praefinitum quia adhuc aliud tempus erit
36et faciet iuxta voluntatem suam rex et elevabitur et magnificabitur adversus omnem deum et adversus Deum deorum loquetur magnifica et dirigetur donec compleatur iracundia perpetrata quippe est definitio
37et Deum patrum suorum non reputabit et erit in concupiscentiis feminarum nec quemquam deorum curabit quia adversum universa consurget
38deum autem Maozim in loco suo venerabitur et Deum quem ignoraverunt patres eius colet auro et argento et lapide pretioso rebusque pretiosis
39et faciet ut muniat Maozim cum Deo alieno quem cognovit et multiplicabit gloriam et dabit eis potestatem in multis et terram dividet gratuito
40et in tempore praefinito praeliabitur adversus eum rex Austri et quasi tempestas veniet contra illum rex Aquilonis in curribus et in equitibus et in classe magna et ingredietur terras et conteret et pertransiet
41et introibit in terram gloriosam et multae corruent hae autem solae salvabuntur de manu eius Edom et Moab et principium filiorum Ammon
42et mittet manum suam in terras et terra aegypti non effugiet
43et dominabitur thesaurorum auri et argenti et in omnibus pretiosis aegypti per Libyam quoque et aethiopiam transibit
44et fama turbabit eum ab Oriente et ab Aquilone et veniet in multitudine magna ut conterat et interficiat plurimos
45et figet tabernaculum suum Apadno inter maria super montem inclytum et sanctum et veniet usque ad summitatem eius et nemo auxiliabitur ei
