Daniel 8

In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.
I te toru o nga tau o te kingitanga o Kingi Perehatara ka puta mai he kite ki ahau, ara ki ahau, ki a Raniera, i muri i tera i puta ra ki ahau i te timatanga.
And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.
I kite moemoea ahau: na i toku kitenga, i Huhana ahau, i te kainga kingi, i tera i te kawanatanga o Erama: na ka kite moemoea ahau, a i te taha ahau o te awa o Urai.
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.
Na ko te marangatanga ake o oku kanohi, ka kite ahau, na, ko tetahi hipi toa e tu ana i te ritenga o te awa, e rua ona haona, roa noa atu nga haona ki runga, kei runga atu ia tetahi i tetahi: na, ko tera i purero ra, no muri rawa i puta ai.
I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.
I kite ano ahau i te hipi toa e aki ana whaka te hauauru, whaka te raki, whaka te tonga; a kore noa iho tetahi kararehe i tu ki tona aroaro, kahore hoki he tangata hei whakaora i roto i tona ringa; heoi mahia ana e ia tana i pai ai, a nui haere a na ia.
And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.
Na i ahau e whakaaroaro ana, na ko te putanga mai o tetahi koati toa i te hauauru, i te mata o te whenua katoa, kihai ano ia i pa ki te whenua: a he haona to te koati i waenganui i ona kanohi, he mea e whakamaua e te titiro.
And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.
Na ka haere mai ia ki te hipi toa e rua nei ona haona, i kitea atu ra e ahau e tu ana i te ritenga o te awa, rere atu ana ki a ia, me te weriweri katoa o tona kaha.
And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
I kite ano ahau i a ia e whakatata ana ki te hipi toa, riri tonu ki a ia, patua iho e ia te hipi toa, whatiia ana e ia ona haona e rua, kahore hoki he kaha o te hipi toa ki te tu ki tona aroaro; kei te turaki ia i a ia ki te whenua, takatakahia a na ia e ia; kahore hoki he kaiwhakaora mo te kipi toa i roto i tona ringa.
Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
Na kua nui noa atu te koati toa, kua kaha, na ka whati te haona nui, a e wha nga mea e whakamaua atu e te titiro i puta ake i tona turanga, he mea e anga ana ki nga hau e wha o te rangi.
And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
Na kua puta ake i roto i tetahi o era tetahi haona iti; kua nui noa atu whaka te tonga, whaka te rawhiti, whaka te whenua ahuareka.
And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
I nui haere ano a tae tonu ki te ope o te rangi, whakataka ana e ia ki te whenua etahi o te ope, o nga whetu hoki, takatakahia ana e ia.
Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
Ae ra, i tae ano tana whakanui i a ia ki te rangatira o te ope, whakakorea iho e ia i a ia te patunga tapu, te mea tuturu, turakina iho tona wahi tapu.
And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
I homai ano te ope ki a ia me te patunga tapu tuturu, na te kino hoki, na turakina iho e ia te pono ki te whenua; a mahi ana, kake ana.
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Katahi ka rongo ahau i tetahi anahera tapu e korero ana, a ka mea tetahi atu anahera tapu ki tera i korero ra; Kia pehea te roa o te kitenga mo te patunga tapu tuturu, mo te he whakangaro e tukua ai te wahi tapu me te ope kia takatakahia?
And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
Na ka mea ia ki ahau, Kia taka nga ahiahi me nga ata e rua mano e toru rau, ko reira te wahi tapu purea ai.
And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.
Na ka kite ahau, a Raniera, i taua kite; ka rapua e ahau te tikanga, na me te mea he ahua tangata e tu ana i toku aroaro.
And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.
I rongo ano ahau i te reo tangata i te takiwa o nga tahatika o Urai e karanga ana, e mea ana, E Kapariera, kia mohio te tangata nei ki te tikanga o te kite.
So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.
Heoi ka haere mai tera ki te wahi i tu ai ahau; a, i tona taenga mai ka wehi ahau, tapapa ana ahau. Na ka mea ia ki ahau, Kia mohio koe, e te tama a te tangata: mo nga wa hoki o te mutunga te kite ra.
Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.
Na, i a ia e korero ana ki ahau, ka riro ahau i te moe, he moe reka, me toku mata e anga ana ki te whenua: otiia i pa ia ki ahau, a whakaturia ana ahau ki runga.
And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.
Na ka mea ia, Nana, ka meinga e ahau kia mohio koe ki nga mea e puta mai i te mutunga o te riri: no te wa hoki tera i whakaritea o te mutunga.
The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.
Ko te hipi toa i kitea ra e koe i nga haona e rua, ko nga kingi era o Meria, o Pahia.
And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.
Ko te koati toa puhuruhuru, ko te kingi tera o Kariki: a ko te haona nui i waenganui i ona kanohi, ko te kingi tuatahi tera.
Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.
Na, mo te mea i whati ra, i puta ake ra e wha ki tona turanga, tera e ara ake e wha nga kingitanga i roto i te iwi, e kore ia e rite te kaha ki tona.
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Na, i te mutunga o to ratou kingitanga, i te mea ka tae ta nga poka ke ki te tutukitanga, ka ara ake he kingi he kanohi hinana tona, e matau ana ki nga kupu ngaro.
And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
A tera e nui tona kaha, otiia ehara i te mea na tona kaha ake: he hanga whakamiharo tana whakangaro; ka kake ano ia, ka mahi i tana e pai ai, ka whakangaro i nga tangata nunui ratou ko te iwi tapu.
And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Ma tana ngarahu mohio ano ka meinga ai e ia te tinihanga o tona ringa kia kake; ka whakanui ano ia i a ia i roto i tona ngakau, he tokomaha hoki e ngaro i a ia i runga i to ratou noho warea; ka whakatika ano ia ki te rangatira o nga rangatira; o tiia ka wawahia ia, ehara ano i te mea na te ringa.
And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
Na, ko te kite o nga ahiahi, o nga ata, ko tera i korerotia ra, pono tonu: engari kopia atu e koe te kite; he mea hoki ia mo nga ra maha kei te haere mai.
And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.
Na kua iwikore noa iho ahau, a Raniera, he maha nga ra oku e mate ana; muri iho ka maranga ahau, a mahia ana e ahau te mahi a te kingi; miharo tonu ano ki taua kite, kihai ia i matauria e tetahi.
