Daniel 11:42

He shall stretch forth his hand also against the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Read Chapter 11


AD 420
We read that Antiochus partially accomplished this. But as for the added detail, "He shall pass through the Libyans and Ethiopians," our school insists that this is more appropriate to the Antichrist. For Antiochus never held Libya, which most writers understand to be North Africa, nor Ethiopia; unless, of course, his capture of Egypt involved the harrassment of those provinces of Egypt which lay in the same general region as Ethiopia, and which lay as distant neighbors to it, on the other side of the deserts. Hence there is no assertion of his conquering them, but only the statement that he passed through the Libyans and the Ethiopians.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
