11:35 And I beheld, and, lo, the head upon the right side devoured it that was upon the left side.

11:36 Then I heard a voyce, which said vnto me, Looke before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest.

11:36 Then I head a voice, which said unto me, Look before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest.

11:37 And I beheld, and lo, as it were a roaring lion chased out of the wood: and I saw that he sent out a man's voice unto the eagle, and said,

11:38 Heare thou, I will talke with thee, and the highest shall say vnto thee,

11:38 Hear thou, I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee,

11:39 Art not thou it that remainest of the foure beasts, whom I made to raigne in my world, that the end of their times might come through them?

11:39 Art not thou it that remainest of the four beasts, whom I made to reign in my world, that the end of their times might come through them?

11:40 And the fourth came and ouercame all the beasts that were past, and had power ouer the world with great fearefulnesse, and ouer the whole compasse of the earth with much wicked oppression, and so long time dwelt he vpon the earth with deceit.

11:40 And the fourth came, and overcame all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with much wicked oppression; and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit.

11:41 For the earth hast thou not iudged with trueth.

11:41 For the earth hast thou not judged with truth.

11:42 For thou hast afflicted the meeke, thou hast hurt the peaceable, thou hast loued lyers, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruite, and hast cast downe the walles of such, as did thee no harme.

11:42 For thou hast afflicted the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable, thou hast loved liars, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm.

11:43 Therefore is thy wrongfull dealing come vp vnto the Highest, and thy pride vnto the Mighty.

11:43 Therefore is thy wrongful dealing come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty.

11:44 The Highest also hath looked vpon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and his abominations are fulfilled.

11:44 The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and, behold, they are ended, and his abominations are fulfilled.

11:45 And therefore appeare no more thou Eagle, nor thy horrible wings, nor thy wicked feathers, nor thy malitious heads, nor thy hurtfull clawes, nor all thy vaine body:

11:45 And therefore appear no more, thou eagle, nor thy horrible wings, nor thy wicked feathers nor thy malicious heads, nor thy hurtful claws, nor all thy vain body:

11:46 That all the earth may be refreshed, and may returne, being deliuered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the iudgement, and mercy of him that made her.

11:46 That all the earth may be refreshed, and may return, being delivered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the judgment and mercy of him that made her.
