out of one of them [out of the four divisions of the Grecian Empire (vs. 5-8)] came forth
[a.] a little horn [out of the Seleucid division of Syria, came Antiochus Epiphanes: who in many respects is a composite drawing of the Antichrist yet to come; see How To Quickly Locate the Antichrist in Scripture; see also Dan. 7:8; Dan. 7:11; Dan. 7:20; Dan. 7:24-25; Dan. 8:9],
[11.] which waxed exceeding great,
[aa.] toward the south, and
[bb.] toward the east, and
[cc.] toward the pleasant [land] [of Israel].
 it [he] waxed great,
[a.] [even] to the host of heaven; and
 it [he] cast down [some]
[a.] of the host and
[b.] of the stars
[11.] to the ground, and
[12.] stamped upon them.
 he magnified [himself]
[a.] even to the prince of the host [the Lord, Jehovah], and
[b.] by him the daily [sacrifice]
[11.] was taken away, and
[c.] [by him] the place of his sanctuary [the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem where the nation Israel has restored temple worship and animal sacrifices under the re-instituted Law of Moses]
[11.] was cast down [like Antiochus Epiphanes, the Antichrist will offer a swine upon the alter in Jerusalem (Dan. 9:27; c/p. 1 Maccabees 1:44-50).
 an host was given [him]
[a.] against the daily [sacrifice]
[11.] by reason of transgression, and
 it [he] cast down the truth [the Word of God]
[a.] to the ground; and
 it [he] practiced, and
 [he] prospered [moved forward with dispatch].
8:13 Then [after the daily sacrifice was taken away] I heard
 one saint speaking, and
 another saint said
[a.] unto that certain [saint] which spake,
[11.] the daily [sacrifice], and
[12.] the transgression of desolation,
to give both
[aa.] the sanctuary and
[bb.] the host to be trodden under foot?
 then shall the sanctuary be cleansed [through some miraculous and supernatural event which God has kept hidden (from the Devil) a remnant of Israel will regain control of the temple in Jerusalem: 1150 days after the Antichrist: breaks his covenant with Israel and seizes and desecrates the temple (Dan. 9:27).]
