Daniel 7:24

ESV As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall put down three kings.
NIV The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.
NASB As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will humble three kings.
CSB The ten horns are ten kings who will rise from this kingdom. Another king, different from the previous ones, will rise after them and subdue three kings.
NLT Its ten horns are ten kings who will rule that empire. Then another king will arise, different from the other ten, who will subdue three of them.
KJV And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

What does Daniel 7:24 mean?

Daniel's prophetic dream included a bizarre beast with ten horns, three of which were overcome by the appearance of a new, smaller horn (Daniel 7:7–8). This beast has been explained as a unique kingdom that will dominate the entire world (Daniel 7:23). Here, an angelic interpreter (Daniel 7:16) further explains the symbolism of the horns.

The ten horns on the ferocious beast represent ten kings, national leaders, or emperors. Another horn would imply another ruler. This one usurps the rule of three of the kings. This eleventh horn is different from all the others. These ten kings are prominent in the end times (Revelation 13:1; 17:12). The eleventh king, the little horn of Daniel's vision (Daniel 7:8), will have much more authority than the ten kings. He will extend his rule over the entire world, and he will be more hateful than the ten. He will pour out his hatred on God's people: the saints.

Many expositors identify this horn as "the Antichrist," while others see the false prophet of Revelation 13:11–17 as that figure. The little horn, the eleventh horn, holds political sway over the world, whereas the false prophet exercises religious control over others. References to the Antichrist in the New Testament denounce his religious crimes (1 John 2:18–22; 4:3; 2 John 1:7). For this reason, many expositors identify "the Antichrist" with the apostate false prophet.
