Daniel 11:4, Page 1

Re-evaluation Translation:
Daniel 11:4  And when he [Kim Jong-Il] increases in power, his government will burst [send out pieces (people and/or missiles)] and will [by this very act] cut loose the four winds of the heavens [global warfare, famine, oppressive governments, and pestilence], but his offspring cannot govern with his authority, and the scorching [of responsive international nuclear attack] tears apart his government and infrastructure.

Bible, KJV Translation:
Daniel 11:4  And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

Significant Words and Comments:

Commentary on Daniel 11:4 (2 November 2007):  The English translations of Daniel 11:4 omit some crucial words present in the Hebrew text which make this verse read very differently from the K.J.V. version. Just as it reads, the raw text says: “And when [he] stands up [he] will burst his kingdom and shall be divided by the four winds of the heavens and not to his end/extremities/borders, nor according to his dominion which [he] ruled, for/scorches torn-apart kingdoms and [gives] to others these fragments.”
Kim Jong-Il arises and is established as an international leader, his kingdom bursts [scattering parts from a central location—not necessarily parts of government, but anything, potentially missiles or radical activists] and disperses these parts in all directions in the sky, but, of course, not within his own borders.
        As clearly described in
Zechariah 5, flying cylinders, missiles or rockets, hit all the world. The explosives on these missiles scorch cities around the globe, disrupting lives and nations, and tearing apart the global economy--all branches of it. The United States, thus disabled, can no longer back Israel in their struggle for survival, leading to the prophesied emptying of that land.
day of vengeance of our Elohim,” comes on the heals of this global devastation in the latter part of the seventh or Sabbatical Year and fits exactly with the information presented in Daniel 11:4. See Jeremiah 39:2; 52:6-7; Zephaniah 1:1-6; Isaiah 24:1-3 [compare 2 Kings 21:13; 22:16, 17; 2 Chronicles 36:21; Psalms 146:9 Isaiah 1:7-9; 5:6; 6:11, 12; 7:17-25; 27:10; 29:16; 32:13, 14; 42:15; Jeremiah 4:7; 6:8, 9; 24:8-10; 34:22; 36:29; Ezekiel 5:14; 6:6; 12:20; 24:11; 33:27-29; 35:14; Micah 7:13; Nahum 2:10].

Signifiicant Words in Daniel 11:4 (2 November 2007): 
Stand up [from James Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary entry H5975], to physically stand up, or to take a stand morally or militarily, as discussed in notes on Daniel 11:1.
