Daniel 8:8

Context
8:8 The male goat acted even more arrogantly. But no sooner had the large horn become strong than it was broken, and there arose four conspicuous horns 1  in its place, 2  extending toward the four winds of the sky. 3 

Daniel 8:22

Context
8:22 The horn that was broken 4  and in whose place there arose four others stands for four kingdoms that will arise from his nation, though they will not have his strength.

1 tn The word “horns” is not in the Hebrew text, but is implied.

2 sn The four conspicuous horns refer to Alexander’s successors. After his death, Alexander’s empire was divided up among four of his generals: Cassander, who took Macedonia and Greece; Lysimachus, who took Thrace and parts of Asia Minor; Seleucus, who took Syria and territory to its east; and Ptolemy, who took control of Egypt.

3 tn Or “the heavens.” The Hebrew term שָׁמַיִם (shamayim) may be translated “heavens” or “sky” depending on the context.

4 tn Heb “the broken one.” The word “horn” has been supplied in the translation to clarify the referent.
