“These great beasts, which are foure, are foure Kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)
14. And there was giuen him dominion and glory, and a kingdome, that all people, nations, and languages should serue him: his dominion is an euerlasting dominion, which shall not passe away; and his kingdome that, which shall not be destroyed. 15. ¶ I Daniel was grieued in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. 16. I came neere vnto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this: so he told mee, and made me know the interpretation of the things. 17. These great beasts, which are foure, are foure Kings, which shall arise out of the earth. 18. But the Saints of the most high shall take the kingdome, & possesse the kingdome for euer, euen for euer & euer. 19. Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diuerse from al the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of yron, and his nailes of brasse, which deuoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feete, 20. And of the ten hornes that were in his head, and of the other, which came vp, and before whom three fell, euen of that horne that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose looke was more stout then his fellowes.
