Context Readings

The Vision Of A Small Horn That Oppresses Israel And Threatens The Temple

7 I saw him approaching the ram, and infuriated with him, he struck the ram, shattering his two horns, and the ram was not strong enough to stand against him. The goat threw him to the ground and trampled him, and there was no one to rescue the ram from his power. 8 Then the male goat became very great, but when he became powerful, the large horn was shattered. Four conspicuous horns came up in its place, pointing toward the four winds of heaven. 9 From one of them a little horn emerged and grew extensively toward the south and the east and toward the beautiful land.
