Daniel 11:2-4

Darius and the kings of Persia and of Greece

2 ‘Now I will explain to you the things that will happen,’ the messenger said. ‘There will be three more kings in Persia and then a fourth king will come. He will be richer than all the other kings. He will become powerful because he is so rich. Then he will cause everybody to become angry with the kingdom called Greece.’

3 ‘Then a very strong king will come,’ he told me. ‘He will rule with great power. And he will do whatever he wants to do. 4 After he comes, his kingdom will break into 4 parts. Those parts will be in the north, south, east and west. His children and grandchildren will not rule his kingdom. Other people will rule his kingdom, but they will not be as powerful.’
