Daniel 11:25

Context
11:25 He will rouse his strength and enthusiasm 4  against the king of the south 5  with a large army. The king of the south will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to prevail because of the plans devised against him.

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

4 tn Heb “heart.”

5 sn This king of the south was Ptolemy Philometer (ca. 181-145 B.C.).
