of Daniel 8
*** Where was
Daniel at the time that this
vision was given to him?
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
lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a
ram which had two horns.” Verse 3.
*** What was next
shown to him?
“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.” Verses 5-8.
*** When the
notable horn was broken, what came up next?
“When he was strong, the
great horn was broken; and for it came up
four notable ones toward the four winds.” Verse 8.
*** What important
horn came out of one of these horns?
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.” Verses 9-10.
*** What command
was then given to an angel that stood nearby?
“I heard a man’s voice
between the banks of Ulai, which called, and
said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.” Verse 16.
*** What were the
first words that the angel then spoke to the prophet?
a son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.” Verse 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.” Verses 20-21.
*** What is represented by the four
horns that come up in place of the broken one?
that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand
up out of the nation, but not in his power.” Verse 22.
*** What is the
meaning of the “little horn” in verse 9?
latter time of their [successors of Alexander] kingdom, when the
transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and
understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” Verse 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.
*** What was
finally to happen to this persecuting power?
“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?
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
“I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose
up, and did the king’s business.” Daniel 8:27.
