A Beast of Daniel 

A connection with the Apocalypse.  John knows Daniel.  Both have a beast with “ten horns” which should fit with history in the same way.  This requires a close look at the King of the North and the King of the South.  The fourth beast of Daniel was diverse from all the beasts and must show up somewhere in history.

A Prince 

A general or other?  Good luck if you are looking for the king of the north.  The translators can’t agree on Daniel 11:5.  24 think he was a prince and 28 think he was anything but a prince.  princes 24, commanders 11, officers 7, officials 5, generals 2, leaders 2, subordinates 1 – Go figure.  Who can you trust?  What can you trust?  Numbers and history.

a translation 

A Big Problem 

A word can be misleading if you are looking for the king of the north. There are eight different words in 52 different translations: princes 24, commanders 10, officers 7, officials 5, generals 2, leaders 2, principalities 1, subordinates 1. The word prince suggests a family member unlike the other seven words which have a common meaning. Makes you wonder about words used in other parts of the bible. These are major differences in words used before you get to the problem of interpreting them. Reader beware.
