但以理见异象-Daniel’s Apocalyptic Visions

It has been perhaps ten to twelve years since anything has been heard from Daniel, God’s captive servant who was put into the service of King Nebuchadnezzar as a young man. During this time Daniel has achieved great respect in the royal palace, primarily due to his successful interpretation of various dreams and riddles. Now in his later years, Daniel has served a succession of Babylonian leaders. After Nebuchadnezzar came his son, Awel-Marduk, who reigned only about two years (ca. 561–559 B.C.) before being assassinated by his brother-in-law, Neriglissar. Neriglissar ruled for four years (ca. 559–555 B.C.). His reign was followed very briefly by Labashi-Marduk (ca. 555 B.C.) before a usurper named Nabonidus took the throne (ca. 555 B.C.). Although Nabonidus will technically be the ruler of Babylonia until about 539 B.C., he earlier removed himself to northern Arabia when he was strongly opposed by priests of Marduk, who objected to his introduction of the moon-god, Sin. In 552 B.C. his son Belshazzar became a co-regent and now rules the rapidly declining empire.

During the first and third years of Belshazzar’s rule, Daniel has two of the most amazing prophetic dreams since Ezekiel’s vision of the great battle against Gog and the hordes of evil. Interestingly, there are events and characters in Daniel’s dreams which seem to correspond with things Ezekiel saw in his great temple vision. The first dream shows four beasts which, as Daniel is told, represent the four kingdoms prior to the kingdom of the Most High. The second dream pictures a battle between a ram and a goat. It apparently has to do with the time when one will challenge the Prince of Princes.

Various themes are evident. Throughout the universe, just as between warring nations, there is an ongoing battle between the forces of good and evil, between God and Satan, between justice and injustice, between morality and immorality. And the same battle is waged within every individual. While evil brings about its own destruction even now, there will come a time when the great destruction of evil and its champions will take place. It will be a final destruction, giving way to a permanent state of peace and righteousness in the eternal kingdom of God.

Daniel himself did not know exactly what to make of all that he had seen, and any difficult questions which the visions may raise should not obscure the more obvious message of hope which the visions clearly bring.

# 但以理书(DAN)
## 但以理见异象 -
[7:1] 巴比伦王伯沙撒元年,但以理在床上作梦,见了脑中的异象,就记录这梦,述说其中的大意。
[7:2] 但以理说:「我夜里见异象,看见天的四风陡起,刮在大海之上。
## 见四巨兽
[7:3] 有四个大兽从海中上来,形状各有不同,
[7:4] 头一个像狮子,有鹰的翅膀。我正观看的时候,兽的翅膀被拔去,兽从地上得立起来,用两脚站立,像人一样,又得了人心。
[7:5] 又有一兽如熊,就是第二兽,旁跨而坐,口齿内啣着三根肋骨,有吩咐这兽的说:『起来吞吃多肉。』
[7:6] 此后我观看,又有一兽如豹,背上有鸟的四个翅膀;这兽有四个头,又得了权柄。
[7:7] 其后,我在夜间的异象中观看,见第四兽甚是可怕,极其强壮,大有力量。有大铁牙,吞吃嚼碎,所剩下的用脚践踏。这兽与前三兽大不相同,头有十角。
[7:8] 我正观看这些角,见其中又长起一个小角,先前的角中有三角在这角前,连根被他拔出来。这角有眼,像人的眼,有口说夸大的话。
[7:9] 我观看,见有宝座设立,上头坐着亘古常在者,他的衣服洁白如雪,头发如纯净的羊毛,宝座乃火燄,其轮乃烈火。
[7:10] 从他面前有火,像河发出,事奉他的有千千,在他面前侍立的有万万。他坐着要行审判,案卷都展开了。
[7:11] 那时我观看,见那兽因小角说夸大话的声音被杀,身体损坏,扔在火中焚烧。
[7:12] 其余的兽,权柄都被夺去,生命却仍存留,直到所定的时候和日期。
[7:13] 我在夜间的异象中观看,见有一位像人子的,驾着天云而来,被领到亘古常在者面前;
[7:14] 得了权柄、荣耀、国度,使各方、各国、各族的人都事奉他。他的权柄是永远的,不能废去,他的国必不败坏。
## 解异象之义
[7:15] 至于我但以理,我的灵在我里面愁烦,我脑中的异象使我惊惶。
[7:16] 我就近一位侍立者,问他这一切的真情。他就告诉我,将那事的讲解给我说明:
[7:17] 『这四个大兽就是四王将要在世上兴起,
[7:18] 然而,至高者的圣民,必要得国享受,直到永永远远。』
[7:19] 那时我愿知道第四兽的真情,牠为何与那三兽的真情大不相同,甚是可怕,有铁牙铜爪,吞吃嚼碎,所剩下的用脚践踏。
[7:20] 头有十角和那另长的一角,在这角前有三角被他打落。这角有眼,有说夸大话的口,形状强横,过于他的同类。
[7:21] 我观看,见这角与圣民争战,胜了他们,
[7:22] 直到亘古常在者来给至高者的圣民伸冤,圣民得国的时候就到了。
[7:23] 那侍立者这样说:『第四兽就是世上必有的第四国,与一切国大不相同,必吞吃全地,并且践踏嚼碎。
[7:24] 至于那十角,就是从这国中必兴起的十王,后来又兴起一王,与先前的不同,他必制伏三王。
[7:25] 他必向至高者说夸大的话,必折磨至高者的圣民,必想改变节期和律法。圣民必交付他手一载、二载、半载。
[7:26] 然而,审判者必坐着行审判,他的权柄必被夺去,毁坏,灭绝,一直到底。
[7:27] 国度、权柄和天下诸国的大权,必赐给至高者的圣民。他的国是永远的,一切掌权的都必事奉他、顺从他。』
[7:28] 那事至此完毕。至于我但以理,心中甚是惊惶,脸色也改变了,却将那事存记在心。」

## 复见异象
[8:1] 伯沙撒王在位第三年,有异象现与我但以理,是在先前所见的异象之后。
[8:2] 我见了异象的时候,我以为在以拦省书珊城中,我见异象又如在乌莱河边。
## 见公绵羊
[8:3] 我举目观看,见有双角的公绵羊站在河边,两角都高,这角高过那角,更高的是后长的。
[8:4] 我见那公绵羊往西、往北、往南牴触,兽在他面前都站立不住,也没有能救护脱离他手的,但他任意而行,自高自大。
## 见公山羊
[8:5] 我正思想的时候,见有一只公山羊从西而来,遍行全地,脚不沾尘。这山羊两眼当中有一非常的角。
[8:6] 牠往我所看见站在河边有双角的公绵羊那里去,大发忿怒,向牠直闯。
[8:7] 我见公山羊就近公绵羊,向他发烈怒、牴触牠.折断他的两角。绵羊在他面前站立不住,他将绵羊触倒在地,用脚践踏,没有能救绵羊脱离他手的。
[8:8] 这山羊极其自高自大,正强盛的时候,那大角折断了,又在角根上向天的四方长出四个非常的角来。
[8:9] 四角之中,有一角长出一个小角,向南、向东、向荣美之地,渐渐成为强大。
[8:10] 牠渐渐强大,高及天象,将些天象和星宿抛落在地,用脚践踏。
[8:11] 并且他自高自大,以为高及天象之君,除掉常献给君的燔祭,毁坏君的圣所。
[8:12] 因罪过的缘故,有军旅和常献的燔祭交付牠。牠将真理抛在地上,任意而行,无不顺利。
[8:13] 我听见有一位圣者说话,又有一位圣者问那说话的圣者说:「这除掉常献的燔祭和施行毁坏的罪过,将圣所与军旅践踏的异象要到几时才应验呢?」
[8:14] 他对我说:「到二千三百日,圣所就必洁净。」
## 加百列为释异象之义
[8:15] 我但以理见了这异象,愿意明白其中的意思,忽有一位形状像人的站在我面前。
[8:16] 我又听见乌莱河两岸中有人声呼叫说:「加百列啊,要使此人明白这异象。」
[8:17] 他便来到我所站的地方。他一来,我就惊慌俯伏在地,他对我说:「人子啊,你要明白,因为这是关乎末后的异象。」
