Daniel 8:7

Context
8:7 I saw it approaching the ram. It went into a fit of rage against the ram 1  and struck it 2  and broke off its two horns. The ram had no ability to resist it. 3  The goat hurled the ram 4  to the ground and trampled it. No one could deliver the ram from its power. 5 

Daniel 8:17

Context
8:17 So he approached the place where I was standing. As he came, I felt terrified and fell flat on the ground. 6  Then he said to me, “Understand, son of man, 7  that the vision pertains to the time of the end.”

1 tn Heb “him.”

2 tn Heb “the ram.”

3 tn Heb “stand before him.”

4 tn Heb “he hurled him.” The referents of both pronouns (the male goat and the ram) have been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 sn The goat of Daniel’s vision represents Greece; the large horn represents Alexander the Great. The ram stands for Media-Persia. Alexander’s rapid conquest of the Persians involved three battles of major significance which he won against overwhelming odds: Granicus (334 B.C.), Isus (333 B.C.), and Gaugemela (331 B.C.).

6 tn Heb “on my face.”

7 tn Or “human one.”
