Bible: Daniel 11:36-40

11:36Then the king 1  will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every deity and he will utter presumptuous things against the God of gods. He will succeed until the time of 2  wrath is completed, for what has been decreed must occur. 3  11:37 He will not respect 4  the gods of his fathers – not even the god loved by women. 5  He will not respect any god; he will elevate himself above them all. 11:38 What he will honor is a god of fortresses – a god his fathers did not acknowledge he will honor with gold, silver, valuable stones, and treasured commodities. 11:39 He will attack 6  mighty fortresses, aided by 7  a foreign deity. To those who recognize him he will grant considerable honor. He will place them in authority over many people, and he will parcel out land for a price. 8 

11:40At the time of the end the king of the south will attack 9  him. Then the king of the north will storm against him 10  with chariots, horsemen, and a large armada of ships. 11  He 12  will invade lands, passing through them like an overflowing river. 13
