Significant Words and Comments:

Signifiicant Words in Daniel 11:22 (7 November 2007): 
Arms, from zerowa` [from James Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary entry H2220, from the primary root verb H2232], meaning “the arm; figuratively, force,” as discussed in notes on Daniel 11:6. However, zerowa` is from the primary root zara` [H2232], meaning “to sow; to disseminate, plant, fructify.” Hosea says, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek Yehuveh, till He come and rain righteousness upon you.” The Book of Jasher says that in the time of Enoch and under his kingship, all the world served Yehuveh and lived righteously and peaceably with each other. This appointed leader will restore that global peace and righteousness. Hosea 10:12; The Book of Jasher 3:7-12.
Flood is from shateph [H7858/H7857] meaning, “a deluge; an inundation, a cleansing,” and is used only here in Daniel 11-12. This righteous leader initiates a national cleansing. Himself a guardian of Yehuveh’s instructions, he impresses faithfulness upon all under his influence. He doesn’t have to do a lot of house-cleaning, because the people who are gathered out of the nations love Yehuveh, but he will establish a righteous government.
Overflow, to gush, is from shataph [H7857] meaning, “to gush; by implication, to inundate, to cleanse,” as discussed by Daniel 11:10. Notice, be overflown is shataph, the root for flood, above. Using the two words together indicates the certainty of this cleansing. Duplication, in Hebrew, always establishes certainty (see Genesis 41:32).
Before him, paniym [H6440], is discussed in notes on Daniel 11:16.
Broken, literally burst forth, is from the primary root verb shabar [H7665] and discussed in notes on Daniel 11:4. Shabar is used in Isaiah 14:5, “Yehuveh hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.” and Ezekiel 34:27, “The tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am Yehuveh, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.” This righteous leader breaks the power of anything unrighteous that remains among those who have come home.
Yea, also is from gam [H1571], as discussed in notes on Daniel 11:8.
Prince, literally anything elevated or exalt, is from nagiyd [H5057H5046], from the primary root nagad [H5046], meaning “to front, stand boldly out opposite; to manifest; to announce; to expose, predict, explain, praise.” Here it is the covenant, not the prince, which is elevated. The humble, powerful leader cleanses the kingdom by making “the covenant” foremost to the people. Simply: Yehuveh’s everlasting covenant is made exceedingly prominent before the people. Nagiyd is used only here in Daniel 11-12
Covenant is from beriyth [H1285/H1262], meaning “a compact.” In Daniel 11-12, beriyth is used five times in Daniel 11:22, 28, 30 (twice), 32. What is the everlasting covenant? “As for Me, this is My covenant with them, saith Yehuveh; My spirit that is upon thee, and My words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith Yehuveh, from henceforth and for ever.” “Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.” At its simplest, Yehuveh’s covenant is: Do as I instruct; I’ll care for you! Isaiah 59:21; Deuteronomy 29:9.
