    RECAPITULATION OF THE FOREGOING ARGUMENT

    1. The vision. It begins with the ram having two horns, while both horns were high, but the last of the two the highest. And also, while no beast could stand before the ram. This is said (verse 20) to be the kings of Media and Persia. It includes the goat; his great horn between his eyes his conquest of the ram, and the breaking of his great horn. It also presents the four notable horns which came up for the great horn; also the little horn which came out of one of the four horns. The goat is said (verse 21) to be the king of Grecia; the great horn between his eyes, the first king. That being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation. And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance shall stand up, understanding dark sentences. This power is to stand up against the prince of princes, and be broken without hand. All these events could not take place either in 1150 or 2300 literal days; and hence, the time must be understood figuratively, a day for a year, 2300 years.PREX1 125.2

    2. The sanctuary, is mount Zion, or Jerusalem, the capital of the kingdom of God, where David’s throne was established; but which in Daniel’s day, and ever since, was and is desolate, and in the hands of the Gentiles. It is now under condemnation, but will be justified or pardoned, and built up at the end of the 2300 years. It is yet desolate; therefore the period is not expired.PREX1 126.1

    3. The “indignation,” is God’s manifested displeasure against his people, by which he has broken up their civil polity and dispersed and scattered them abroad among all nations, from the land of promise. The vision extends to “the last end of the indignation.” But they are yet scattered and oppressed; therefore the indignation has not ended. But it will end with the 2300 years; “for at the time appointed, the end” of the indignation “shall be.”PREX1 126.2
