Text Commentary

1Then shall arise kings to rule over them, and they shall be called priests of the Most High God (they will be responsible for much ungodliness in the holy of holies). 2And an insolent king will succeed them, who will not be of priestly stock, an arrogant and a shameless man; and he will judge them as they deserve. 3And he will put their leaders to death with the sword, and bury them secretly so that no one should know where their bodies are. 4He will kill both old and young and spare no one. 5He will be the object of universal dread and detestation. 1 Lit. ‘Then the fear of him will be bitter unto them in their land’. 6And he will treat them ruthlessly, as the Egyptians treated them, for thirty-four years, and make their lives unbearable. 7And he will produce children, who will succeed him and rule for shorter periods. 8Into their parts will come the cohorts and a powerful king of the west, who will conquer them, and take them captive, and burn a part of their temple with fire, and crucify some of them round their city. 2 Lit. ‘colony’. Cp. iii. 2; v. 6.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘Then the fear of him will be bitter unto them in their land’.

2 Lit. ‘colony’. Cp. iii. 2; v. 6.
