of Daniel 8
Daniel at the time that this
vision was given to him?
"And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I
was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw
in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai." Daniel 8:2.
In this vision, what did Daniel see
"Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood
before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high;
but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last."
What was shown to
"And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west
on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat
had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two
horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the
fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved
with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and
there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to
the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver
the ram out of his hand. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when
he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable
ones toward the four winds of heaven." Daniel 8:5-8.
notable horn was broken, what came up next?
"Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong,
the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the
four winds of heaven." Daniel 8:8.
horn came out of one of these winds?
"And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed
exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the
pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast
down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon
them." Daniel 8:9,10.
was then given to an angel that stood nearby?
"And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which
called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision."
What were the
first words that the angel then spoke to the prophet?
"So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid,
and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for
at the time of the end shall be the vision." Daniel 8:17.
Did the angel
then explain about the ram and the he-goat?
"The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of
Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great
horn that is between his eyes is the first king." Daniel 8:20,21.
What is represented by the four
horns that come up in place of the broken one?
"Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four
kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power."
What is the
meaning of the "little horn" in verse 9?
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors
are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark
sentences, shall stand up." Daniel 8:23.
What was this
little horn to do to God's sanctuary?
"Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by
him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was
cast down." Daniel 8:11.
finally to happen to this persecuting power?
"But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his
dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end." Daniel 7:26.
At what time,
according to this important prophecy, was the sanctuary to be cleansed?
"And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days;
then shall the sanctuary be cleansed." Daniel 8:14.
How did this
view of desolation and persecution by the little horn power affect the
"And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days;
afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at
the vision, but none understood it." Daniel 8:27.
