Here's the entire passage, Daniel 8:8-14 with the phonetic Hebrew and the
direct English translation. I hope this is informative to anyone having an
interest in these great time prophecies.
To me they are enigmatic in the extreme, and I can not see how these can
be at all useful, other than as this nice story about a Jew named Daniel who
was so devout and concerned about there being a restoration of truth and
justice, enough to have prevailed with the most important of God's own
direct manipulators of world events.
Probably the lesson to be learned is that; a person who is naturally talented
to be potentially the most intelligent person on Earth and possibly of all human
history, and then trained his mind to focus on the will of God, and then was
thrust into the very heart of all knowledge and learning, and he was given
access to the mightiest of all the angels, then he can almost know the future.
