"...he shall stir up his power..."

  • [Picking up the thread of time from Daniel 11:24], this verse refers to the struggle between Augustus and Antony, which culminated in the Battle of Actium, and the defeat of Antony. (4BC 871)

"...to battle..."

  • August the King of the North and Anthony the King of the South, fought in the battle of Actium. Cleopatra, who could not be depended upon, was frightened by the din of battle and withdrew, taking with her sixty ships supplied by the Egyptian navy. Anthony followed her and thereby conceded the victory to
    Augustus. His supporters went over to Augustus. Finally, he committed suicide. (KC 131)
