Syrian Wars-Daniel 11

Daniel Chapter 11:4-35 is prophetic writing that covers about 133 years from 301-168 BC. These were the years of the six Syrian wars (274-168 BC) between the Seleucid Kingdom in the north (Syria) and the kingdom of the Ptolemies in the south (Egypt). The battles and cultural conflicts left serious and lasting marks on the land of Judah.

First Syrian War (274-271) - Daniel 11:5"The king of the South (Ptolemy I Soter) will become strong, but one of his commanders (Seleucis Nicator I) will rule his own kingdom with great power."
Secon Syrian War (260-253) - Daniel 11:6"After some years, they will become allies. The daughter (Berenice) of the king of the South (Ptolemy II Philadelphus) will go to the king of the North (Antiochus II Theos) to make an alliance, but she will not retain her power and he and his power will not last."
Third Syrian War (246-241) - Daniel 11:7-8"One (Ptolemy III Euergetes) from her family line will arise to take her place. He will attack the forces of the king of the North (Seleucus II Callinicus) and enter his fortress; he will fight against them and be victorious."
Fourth Syrian War (219-217) - Daniel 11:9"Then the king of the North (Antiochus III Great) will invade the realm of the king of the South (Ptolemy IV Philopator) but will retreat to his own country."
Fifth Syrian War (202-195) - Daniel 11:10-13His sons (Seleucus III and Antiochus III) will prepare for war and assemble a great army, which will sweep onlike an irresistible flood and carry the battle as far as his fortress. Then the king of the South (Ptolemy V Epiphanes) will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North (Antiochus III Great), who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated. "
Sixth Syrian War (170-168) - Daniel 11:25"With a large army he (Antiochus IV Epiphanes) will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South (Ptolemy VI Philometor). The king of the South (Ptolemy VI) will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him."
Alexander the Great"Then a mighty king will appear, who will rule with great power and do as he pleases. After he has appeared, his empire will be broken up and parceled out toward the four winds of heaven." Daniel 11:3
Maccabees"The people who know their God will firmly resist him. Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them." Daniel 11:32-33
