11:28  Then shall he [the Antichrist] return into his land [Syria]
[a.] with great riches [the wealth of Egypt (Dan. 11:43)]; and
 his heart [shall be] against the holy covenant [the covenant of blessing that God made with Abraham (Gen. 12:1-3), and the restored Law of Moses]; and
 he shall do [exploits],
[a.] and return to his own land.
 he shall return, and
 [he shall] come toward the south [toward Israel];
[a.] but it shall not be as the former,
[11.] or as the latter.
 the ships of Chittim [Rome / the 10-nation confederacy]
[a.] shall come against him:
[b.] therefore he shall be grieved,
[11.] and return, and
 [he shall] have indignation [be furious]
[a.] against the holy covenant (vs. 28):
 so shall he do;
[a.] he shall even return, and
[b.] [he shall] have intelligence [he shall confer with]
[11.] with them that forsake
[aa.] the holy covenant [the compromising Jews].
11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and
 they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and
 shall take away the daily [sacrifice] [animal sacrifices under the restored Law of Moses], and
 they shall place the abomination
[a.] that maketh desolate [sacrifice a pig of the alter].
 shall he corrupt by flatteries [the compromising Jews]: but
[a.] the people that do know their God [Jews born again after the Rapture of the Church]
[11.] shall be strong, and
[12.] do [exploits].
 among the people (vs. 35)
[a.] shall instruct many:
[b.] yet they shall fall [the men of understanding and the people] by the
[11.] sword, and by
[12.] flame, by
[13.] captivity, and by
[14.] spoil, [many] days. [Those that understand among the people are born again Jews who, like Daniel (vs. 9:2), “understand by books” that they missed the first coming of their Messiah; and that they are in the middle of Daniel’s 70th week (Dan. 9:24-27). For this knowledge they are killed, but have their part in the kingdom at Messiah’s second coming (Dan. 12:10, Dan. 12:13).]
 when they shall fall [the men of understanding],
[a.] they shall be holpen [helped]
[11.] with a little help:
[b.] but many shall cleave to them
[11.] with flatteries [hypocrisy].
