    Eliyahu's last post in the "Daniel 11:37" thread made me think, and, not wanting to derail that thread, I have started a new one.

    We know Jerusalem & the sanctuary was destroyed by the Romans, and that there were desolations occurring until that war ended. However, what was the "flood" that brought those events to their end? The Hebrew word word here for 'flood' is 'sheteph', which, I am told, has several meanings, but the main usage in Scripture is 'flood.

    Is there a Hebrew meaning for sheteph that my rabbi friend overlooked? Does it mean a 'flood' of Roman soldiers? (I have noticed it's used for 'outrageous' once in the KJV.)

    It's a simile. "The end will come like a flood."

    Which version?

    ah, here it is:

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]Daniel 9:26 (NIV):
    After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will
    be cut off and will have nothing.
    The people of the ruler who will come will destroy
    the city and the sanctuary.
    The end will come like a flood: War will continue
    until the end, and desolations have been decreed.
    [/FONT]
