Chapter 12 23 In his last days shall the most High raise up three kingdoms, and renew many things therein, and they shall have the dominion of the earth,24 And of those that dwell therein, with much oppression, above all those that were before them: therefore are they called the heads of the eagle.25 For these are they that shall accomplish his wickedness, and that shall finish his last end.26 And whereas thou sawest that the great head appeared no more, it signifieth that one of them shall die upon his bed, and yet with pain.27 For the two that remain shall be slain with the sword.28 For the sword of the one shall devour the other: but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself.29 And whereas thou sawest two feathers under the wings passing over the head that is on the right side;30 It signifieth that these are they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is the small kingdom and full of trouble, as thou sawest.31 And the lion, whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking to the eagle, and rebuking her for her unrighteousness with all the words which thou hast heard;32 This is the anointed, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and shall upbraid them with their cruelty.33 For he shall set them before him alive in judgment, and shall rebuke them, and correct them.34 For the rest of my people shall he deliver with mercy, those that have been pressed upon my borders, and he shall make them joyful until the coming of the day of judgment, whereof I have spoken unto thee from the the beginning.35 This is the dream that thou sawest, and these are the interpretations.36 Thou only hast been meet to know this secret of the Highest.37 Therefore write all these things that thou hast seen in a book, and hide them:38 And teach them to the wise of the people, whose hearts thou knowest may comprehend and keep these secrets.39 But wait thou here thyself yet seven days more, that it may be shewed thee, whatsoever it pleaseth the Highest to declare unto thee. And with that he went his way.40 And it came to pass, when all the people saw that the seven days were past, and I not come again into the city, they gathered them all together, from the least unto the greatest, and came unto me, and said,41 What have we offended thee? and what evil have we done against thee, that thou forsakest us, and sittest here in this place?42 For of all the prophets thou only art left us, as a cluster of the vintage, and as a candle in a dark place, and as a haven or ship preserved from the tempest.43 Are not the evils which are come to us sufficient?44 If thou shalt forsake us, how much better had it been for us, if we also had been burned in the midst of Sion?45 For we are not better than they that died there.
