720-Daniel Seeks the Interpretation of the Ten
Horns and Little Horn of the Fourth Beast Lesson

Please turn in your Bibles to Daniel 71.
4
Daniel 71 During Belshazzars, Babylons king,
first year, Daniel saw a dream specifically
visions in his mind on his bed. Then, he wrote
down the dream. He declares the beginning of the
account. 2 Daniel began to speak and said, I was
in a trance like state, staring because of my
vision during the night as behold the heavens
four winds were blowing violently against the
great sea.
5
3 Then, four great beasts, one different from the
other, came up out from the sea. 4 The first
beast was like a lion with eagles wings attached
to it. I was in a trance like state staring when
its wings were torn off. Then it was lifted up
from the ground for the purpose of it standing on
two feet like a human being. A human mind was
also given to it.
6
5 Next, another beast, a second one, resembling a
bear with it raised up to one side with three
ribs in its mouth between its teeth. Then, they
issued orders to it, Arise, devour much flesh!
6 After this, I was staring in a trance like
state as behold, another one, was like a leopard
with it having four birds wings on its back.
Also, the beast had four heads. Indeed,
governmental dominion was given to it.
7
7 After this, I was continuing to stare in a
trance like state because of these night visions
as behold, a fourth beast, intimidating, yes even
terrifying as well as extremely powerful,
possessing two large rows of iron teeth. It
devoured as well as crushed. Specifically, it
violently crushed the rest with its feet. Indeed,
it was characterized as different from all the
beasts which were before it in the sense of
possessing ten horns.
8
8 I was contemplating in a trance like state
because of these horns as behold, another little
horn emerged out from among them. Then, the first
three originating from the horns was torn out by
being in the presence of it. In fact, behold, on
this horn, were eyes like a human beings eyes as
well as a mouth speaking boastfully.
9
9 I was continuing to stare in a trance like
state when thrones were set up. Then, the One
Ancient in Days sat. His clothing was white like
snow. Also, the hair of His head was like lambs
wool. His throne was fiery flames. Its wheels
were a blazing fire.
10
10 A river composed of fire was flowing, yes
issuing forth from His presence. A thousand times
a thousand were continually rendering worshipful
service to Him. In fact, ten thousand times ten
thousand were continually standing in His
presence. The court convened resulting in scrolls
being opened.
11
11 I was continuing to stare in a trance like
state at that time because of the sound coming
from the boastful words which the horn was making
a habit of speaking. I was continuing to stare in
a trance like state when the beast was killed. In
fact, its body was destroyed. Specifically, it
was given over to the consuming fire.
12
12 On the other hand, the rest of the beasts,
their governmental dominion was taken away,
though for their benefit an extension of life was
granted for a period of time, yes an appointed
period of time. 13 I was continuing to stare in a
trance like state because of these visions as
behold One like a Son of Man was coming upon the
clouds of heaven. Specifically, He went up to the
One Ancient in Days in the sense that He
approached His presence.
13
14 Then, governmental dominion was given to Him
as well as honor and in addition sovereignty in
order that each and every person belonging to the
nations, ethnicities as well as language groups
would serve Him. His governmental dominion is an
eternal governmental dominion which can never be
taken away so that His kingdom is one which can
never be destroyed.
14
15 As for me, Daniel, my soul was distressed in
the midst of my body. Specifically, the visions
in my mind caused me to be terrified. 16 I went
up to one from those standing nearby in order to
request from him the truth regarding all this.
Consequently, he spoke to me in order to make
known to me the interpretation of these events.
15
17 These great beasts, which are four in number
are four kings who will arise from the earths
inhabitants. 18 However, the saints belonging to
the Most High will receive the kingdom. Indeed,
they will possess the kingdom throughout
eternity, yes throughout eternity, the ages.
16
19 Then, I desired to know the meaning concerning
the fourth beast which was different from all the
others, extraordinarily intimidating, its two
rows of teeth composed of iron as well as its
claws composed of bronze. It devoured as well as
crushed. Specifically, it violently crushed the
rest with its feet. (My translation)
17
Daniel 720 and the meaning of the ten horns
that were on its head and the other horn which
came up, and before which three of them fell,
namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth
uttering great boasts and which was larger in
appearance than its associates. (NASB95)
18
Before which three of them fell is composed of
the third person masculine plural pe?al (Hebrew
qal) active perfect form of the verb nepal
(?????) (nef-al), fell which is followed by
the preposition min (???) (min) which is followed
by the preposition qo?am (?????) (kod-awm),
before and its object is the third person
feminine singular pronominal suffix hî(?) (????)
(he), it which is followed by the feminine
singular cardinal number tela? (??????)
(tel-ath), three.
19
The cardinal number tela? means three referring
to three of the ten horns on the head of the
fourth beast.
20
The third person feminine singular pronominal
suffix hî(?) means it referring to the little
horn and is the object of the prepositions min
and qo?am.
21
The former is a marker of agency indicating the
agent who causes the action of a passive
construction.
22
This indicates that the first three horns of the
fourth beast were destroyed by the little horn
in that he was the causative agent in the
destruction of the three horns which refers to
three kings and their kingdoms according to the
interpretation later on in the chapter.
23
The prepositions qo?am on the other hand
indicates that the first three horns of the
fourth beast were destroyed by being in the
presence of of the little horn.
24
The verb nepal means to fall in the sense of
being killed or destroyed by physical violence
and specifically it refers to suffering defeat
militarily resulting in destruction indicating
that three horns suffered defeat militarily
resulting in their destruction by being in the
presence of the little horn.
25
This interpretation is indicated by Daniel 78
which records Daniel telling the reader that the
first three of the ten horns of the fourth beast
were torn out by being in the presence of the
little horn, which speaks of the three horns
being destroyed by the little horn.
26
Therefore, this verb does not mean that these
three horns prostrated themselves before the
little horn.
27
And which was larger in appearance than its
associates is advancing upon and intensifying
the previous descriptions of the little horn in
that it destroyed three of the ten horns of the
fourth beast and it possessed a mouth habitually
speaking arrogantly.
28
Larger in appearance is composed of the
masculine singular construct form of the noun
?ezû (?????) (khay-zev), in appearance which
is modified by the third person feminine singular
pronominal suffix hî(?)(????) (he), which is not
translated and followed by the masculine singular
form of the adjective ra? (???) (rab), larger.
29
The noun ?ezû means an appearance of something
which distinguishes it from other objects.
30
Here it is used of the appearance of the little
horn which based upon Daniels description in
Daniel 78 and 20 served to distinguish it from
the other ten horns.
31
The adjective ra? means more distinguished and
is making the assertion that the appearance of
the little horn was more distinguished than the
other ten horns because it possessed eyes like a
human being and a mouth like a human being
speaking arrogantly.
32
It does not describe the appearance of the little
horn as being larger than the other ten horns
since there is nothing in the context which
indicates that this little horn became larger
than the other ten horns.
33
However, the context does support the
interpretation that the little horns appearance
was more distinguished since it possessed human
attributes unlike the other ten horns.
34
Daniel 720 Also, I desired to know the meaning
concerning the ten horns which were on its head
as well as the one which emerged and in addition
three fell by being in the presence of it.
Specifically, that horn possessing eyes as well
as a mouth making it a habit of speaking
boastfully. Indeed, its appearance was more
distinguished than its contemporaries. (My
translation)
35
Daniel describes this fourth beast as having ten
horns, which makes this beast different from the
previous three.
36
These ten horns refer to ten kings according to
Daniel 724.
37
These ten horns correspond to the ten toes of
Nebuchadnezzars image in Daniel chapter two that
referred to the Revived Roman Empire that will
consist of a ten nation confederation during
Daniels Seventieth Week.
38
The ten horns do not represent a fifth kingdom
but rather they grow out of the head of the
fourth kingdom and are the last development of
the fourth beast, which corresponds to the ten
toes on the image in Nebuchadnezzars dream in
Daniel chapter two.
39
Daniel 240 records this fourth kingdom is
compared to iron because it would crush and
shatter other kingdoms just as iron shatters and
crushes all things.
40
This comparison indicates that this fourth
kingdom will be more powerful and destructive
than the previous three empires which were
represented on the statue by the gold head, the
silver arms and chest and bronze belly and
thighs, which history records as Babylon,
Medo-Persia and Greece respectively.
41
This verse also says that this fourth kingdom,
which history records as the Roman Empire will
crush as well as break in pieces every kingdom it
confronts in war just like iron breaks into
pieces gold, silver and bronze.
42
The feet of the statue in Daniel chapter two and
the ten horns of the fourth beast in Daniel
chapter seven represent an empire, which has not
yet appeared on the pages of history.
43
The Scriptures indicate that it will be an
empire, which is connected to the Roman Empire
but inferior in character of authority in
rulership as well as power or strength.
44
In fact, the Scriptures teach that it will be a
Revived Form of the Roman Empire, which will be
composed of a ten-nation confederacy which can be
described as a United States of Europe, which is
indicated by several factors.
45
First of all, the feet of the image
Nebuchadnezzar saw were composed of a mixture of
iron and clay.
46
The iron in the feet indicates that the empire
represented by the feet is related to the lower
legs of the statue, which we noted were composed
of iron, which represented the Roman Empire.
47
Also, Daniel does not say that the feet represent
a fifth empire, which further indicates that the
feet represent an empire which is connected to
the Roman Empire.
48
The ten horns mentioned in Daniel 724 correspond
to the toes in Daniel 242 and were ten kingdoms,
out of which one horn will arise who will destroy
three of the other kingdoms and lead the other
seven and persecute believers in Jesus Christ.
49
Daniel 726 says that this one horn called the
little horn will be destroyed by God.
50
Daniel 244-45 teaches that this ten nation
confederation depicted as ten toes of the feet of
the statue will be destroyed by the Second Advent
of Christ, which is depicted as a stone cut of
the mountain without hands.
51
The ten toes of the image indicated that the
final stage of the Roman Empire will consist of a
ten-division federation.
52
Daniel 723-24 signifies that eventually the
Roman Empire will consist of a federation of ten
divisions with ten equal rulers (See Revelation
1712).
53
Since the Roman Empire has never in its history
consisted of a ten-division federation with ten
equal rulers, we can conclude that this stage of
the Empires existence will take place in the
future during the Tribulation period.
54
Also, Daniel 245 records that in the days of
those kings the God of heaven will set up a
kingdom, i.e. the millennial reign of Jesus
Christ, which has never taken place in history
but is yet future.
55
Therefore, sometime in the future, after the
rapture of the church, a revived form of the
Roman Empire will be established.
56
The iron of the feet of the statue in Daniel
chapter two denotes the strength of this stage of
this Revived Form of the Roman Empire during
Daniels Seventieth Week and the clay denotes its
fragility.
57
The mixing of iron with clay represents the
attempt to join the two distinct and separate
materials into one combined whole as in vain.
58
This weakness extends to both feet of the image
and, correspondingly, the division and fragility.

59
The divided stage of the fourth kingdom will
include diverse elements such as race, politics
and other interests, which will prevent this
stage of the fourth kingdom from achieving true
unity, thus, Daniel describes this divided stage
of the fourth kingdom as fragile.
60
The iron describes this divided and final stage
of the fourth kingdom as possessing some of the
character of authority in rulership of the Roman
Empire, depicted by the lower legs on the statue.

61
Also, the iron describes this divided and final
stage of the fourth kingdom as possessing some of
the power or strength of the fourth kingdom,
which represents Rome.
62
The description of the little horn and its
relationship to the other ten horns of the fourth
beast here in Daniel 719 is slightly different
than the description of it in Daniel 78.
63
The description of this little horn in Daniel 78
and 20 makes clear that it is symbolic of a human
being who is a ruler of a kingdom.
64
The little horn refers to the Antichrist since it
is identified with the Revived Roman Empire and
in Daniel 719-26, he is described as waging war
against Gods people up to the time of the Second
Advent of Christ, which corresponds to the
depiction of the Antichrist in Revelation (Daniel
711, 20-26 825 Revelation 131-10 1920).
65
The description of the little horn in Daniel 78
and 20 indicates that the Antichrist will start
off as an insignificant world ruler among ten
other rulers of kingdoms but will defeat three of
these ten kingdoms and emerge as a world ruler.
66
The eyes of the little horn speak of the faculty
of careful observation implying that the
Antichrist will be extremely intelligent.
67
The boastful speaking indicates that the
Antichrist will be a great speaker who in the
judgment of God is arrogant in his words.
68
In Daniel 725, the interpreter tells Daniel that
the little horn will speak out against God
Himself so when Daniel says that the little horn
was speaking boastfully in Daniel 78 and 20, it
is in relation to God.
