11:30

...and have indignation against the holy covenant

... and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.


Understanding




11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall

12:4 many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased

12:10 ... but the wise shall understand

Indignation



8:19 ... what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be

9:24 ... to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation

11:36 and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished

Mark on forehead?? 11:38 But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

I say this might be related to the mark since it seems Josephus described people having to bow before the statue of Caesar to buy stuff – they were honoring the god –relating to gold – in the sense of purchasing and commerce are related to gold.


11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries – this sounds like those who expected peace --


11:29-39 are likely about the horn that overcomes the three kings


verses 11:40-45 may apply to a later portion of the Roman empire in order to complete the promised destruction, the end.
