The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)
Daniel 9 - No mention of any women.
Daniel 10 - No mention of any women.
11:6-7 - "After some years [the kings of the north and south] shall make an alliance, and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to ratify the agreement. But she shall not retain her power and his offspring shall not endure. She shall be given up, she and her attendants and her child and the one who supported her. In those times, a branch from her roots shall rise up in his place. He shall come against the army and enter the fortress of the king of the north, and he shall take action against them and prevail."
11:17 - "In order to destroy the kingdom, [the king of the south] shall give him a woman in marriage; but it shall not succeed or be to his advantage."
Daniel 12 - No mention of any women.
Oh, women. How they just can't do anything. Gotta leave it to a man to save them and fix their mess. Though WHY the daughter of the king was sent to ratify an agreement with an enemy king is just weird. So when she's alone, without a man, her power is taken. It's not until a male "branch from her roots" comes up that the south was able to prevail against the north.
And then we get a trickster woman to top it all off who is part of the plan to take down the kingdom of the north! So wait, a woman can't take care of negotiations by herself but a woman can most definitely take down a kingdom through use of sex and marriage? Once again, our power lies solely with our sexuality which is capable of taking down ANY man. Female sexuality is something to be feared and cautious about, lest a woman be the reason our lives and good future crumble before our eyes. A smart and capable woman, no worried there, but the power we hold between our legs is definitely something that, if left to its own devices and left unchecked, could destroy any man.
Anyone see how that basic idea is still around today?
