  • S Munyemanzi for verse 11
    The world "sacrifice" does not belong to the text of Daniel 8:11, because it is not there in the Hebrew original text. It was added there by the translators and that is why it is italised. Daniel 8:11 should therefore read: "Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down."
