Bible: Daniel 7:9-14

7:9While I was watching,

thrones were set up,

and the Ancient of Days 1  took his seat.

His attire was white like snow;

the hair of his head was like lamb’s 2  wool.

His throne was ablaze with fire

and its wheels were all aflame. 3 

7:10 A river of fire was streaming forth

and proceeding from his presence.

Many thousands were ministering to him;

Many tens of thousands stood ready to serve him. 4 

The court convened 5 

and the books were opened.

7:11Then I kept on watching because of the arrogant words of the horn that was speaking. I was watching 6  until the beast was killed and its body destroyed and thrown into 7  the flaming fire. 7:12 As for the rest of the beasts, their ruling authority had already been removed, though they were permitted to go on living 8  for a time and a season. 7:13 I was watching in the night visions,

And with 9  the clouds of the sky 10 

one like a son of man 11  was approaching.

He went up to the Ancient of Days

and was escorted 12  before him.

7:14 To him was given ruling authority, honor, and sovereignty.

All peoples, nations, and language groups were serving 13  him.

His authority is eternal and will not pass away. 14 

His kingdom will not be destroyed. 15
