The court was seated, and the books were opened. 11 “Then I con tin ued to watch be cause of the boast ful words the horn was speak ing. I kept look­ ing un til the beast was slain and its body de stroyed and thrown into the blaz ing fire. 12 (The oth er beasts had been stripped of their au thor i ty, but were al lowed to live for a pe ri od of time.) 13 “In my vi sion at night I looked, and there be­ fore me was one like a son of man, a com ing with the clouds of heav en. He ap proached the An cient of Days and was led into his pres ence. 14 He was giv en au thor i ty, glo ry and sov er eign pow er; all na tions and peo ples of ev ery lan guage wor shiped him. His do min ion is an ever last ing do min ion that will not pass away, and his king dom is one that will nev er be de stroyed. a 13 The Aramaic phrase bar enash means human being. The phrase son of man is retained here because of its use in the New Testament as a title of Jesus, probably based largely on this verse. 7:13–14 Following the judgment by the Ancient of Days, a human Messianic figure appears. He is presented before the Ancient One and given a dominion that will never pass away. 7:13 one like a son of man The Aramaic phrase used here is an idiom that can be translated as “one like a human being.” Jesus adopts this phrase as a title (“Son of Man”). “One like a son of man” is probably best under- stood as a Messianic reference—which makes the most sense in light of Da 7:14. If the vision of ch. 7 parallels that of ch. 2, the figure refers to the fifth kingdom (2:44). Mes- sianic expectations of the time anticipated one who would drive out foreign enemies, legitimize the temple religion and usher in a period of utopia for the people of Israel. 7:15–28 For the first time in the book, Daniel could not make sense of a vision and needed someone to explain it to him. He questions one of the throne room attendants, who clarifies the meaning of the beasts and the little horn. The account ends with the anticipation of God’s kingdom and a glimmer of hope. The vision will be expanded upon in later chapters. 7:16 I approached one of those standing there Perhaps Gabriel (see 9:21). 7:17 four great beasts are four kings The four kings represent four kingdoms (see v. 3 and note). 7:18 the holy people of the Most High The Aramaic word used here is probably an inclusive term referring to saints and angels.
