In his place a despised person will arise, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom, but he will come in during a time of peace and will obtain the kingdom by flatteries. Bible see other translations

“a despised person.” This is Antiochus Epiphanes, the Seleucid ruler. He is described in Daniel 8:9-13, and as a foreshadowing of the Antichrist in a doubly fulfilled prophecy in Daniel 8:23-25.
