    "I beheld, and lo! that horn made battle against holy men, and had mastery of them, till the Eld of days came, and high God gave doom to holy men; and lo! time came, and holy men got realm." (Wycliffe Bible) What things we bear up under for the just now is but the token of the doom (judgment) that God makes upon the world through us: and we are made in Christ for the standard and measuring of all.

    Verse 15 shows that even though Daniel was a prophet used by Jehovah God, he still found things troubling. He received a great amount of God given knowledge and because he could not fully understand these things he found them troubling.

    "As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time." Daniel 7:12 This is one of several Scriptures which alludes to the Lord NOT coming to destroy men's lives, but to SAVE them; and of a time to come when the world will be able to enjoy life under the glorious reign of the Lord Jesus Christ with all His Saints.

    The earth will be divided into 10 divisions. In Rev.17:12 these 10 rulers will destroy Babylon the great which is a very strong spiritual force who alighted down off of the beast and took control of all of man's endeavors in the areas of economics ,politics, religion, and social media. The 11th king will appear when this is done and take control.

    Because Ancient of days is capitalized, one might assume this to be referring to God. The saints of the most High must also be referring to the saints of God for the very same reason that High is also capitalized.
