the Six Years of Returning (Darius)
|Daniel 11:6, Page 1|
Daniel 11:6 Following these [two] years, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-Il, and the radical Islamic organization, Al Qaeda unite and bring all the developments of their purposes against the leader of the Russian-Chinese coalition, to level all nations, and Russia and China will not retain their strength of arms nor withstand the affront, and loses their self-protection and self-provision, especially yielding up their agriculture [farmers, who produce and increase in cycles of years].
Bible, KJV Translation:
Daniel 11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king’s daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.
Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Daniel 11:6 (2 November 2007): Following these two years [“the third” (20 March 2007-6 April 2008) and “fourth” (7 April 2008-26 March 2009) Years of Returning (Darius), see Daniel 11:2] uniting and consolidating his conquests, the king of parched-land [the radical Islamic organization Al-Qaeda under Osama bin Laden] comes against the “king of the north” [the leader of the Russian-Chinese coalition] to establish international equality, and Russia and China will not be able to retain their strength of arms nor withstand the affront, and loses their self-protection and self-provision, especially yielding up their agricultural programs [farmers, who produce and increase in cycles of years].
Signifiicant Words in Daniel 11:6 (2 November 2007):
In the end of, or more correctly in this verse, following, is from the single-letter prefix, lamed with qets [from James Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary entry H7093, from the root verb H7112], meaning “an extremity, an outer limit; used as an adverb with proper prefix to mean after.” Qets is used eleven times in Daniel 11-12 [Daniel 11:6, 13, 27, 35, 40, 45; 12:4, 6, 9, 13 (twice)].
Years [H8141/H8138] as revolutions in time are discussed in the notes on Daniel 11:1 and Revelation 20:2.
Join is from the primary root verb chabar [H2266] meaning “to join or to unite; to form a league with,” and is used only in Daniel 11:6 and 11:23.
Daughter, in this context would more correctly be translated construct, from bath [H1323/H1129], is presented as simply meaning “a daughter,” because by becoming a mother she increases the size and structure of her family, but this meaning is tremendously much wider. Bath comes from the primary root verb banah, meaning “to build, to construct, to assemble,” and therefore should be given the wider definition of anything which increases and builds up something else. Bath is used twice in Daniel 11-12 [11:6, 17]. Bath, [like its masculine equivalent, son, ben] describe any other form of “building up or increasing”—that is, constructing, amassing, assembling, fashioning, rebuilding (restoring), establishing. In this context bath has very much more to do with amassed geography than with a royal marriage.
For full explanation of “the king . . . of the south” as the radical Islamic organization Al-Qaeda under Osama bin Laden, see the note following Daniel 11:5.
Come is from the primary verb bow’ [H0935], meaning either “to go or to come.” In the broader sense, bow’ describes movement and is translated, “come, brought, enter, carry.” Bow’ is used sixteen times in Daniel 11-12, all in Daniel 11 [6 (twice), 7 (twice), 8, 9, 10, 13, 15, 16, 17, 21, 24, 29, 30, 40, 41, 45].
