9 And out of one of them came forth a [a]little horn, which waxed very great toward the [b]South, and toward the [c]East, and toward the [d]pleasant land.
10 Yea, it grew up unto the [e]host of heaven, and it cast down some of the host, and of the stars to the ground, and trode upon them,
11 And extolled himself against the [f]prince of the host, from whom the [g]daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his Sanctuary was cast down.

Daniel 8:10Antiochus raged against the elect of God, and trode his precious stars under feet, which are so called, because they are separated from the world.
Daniel 8:11That is, God, who governeth and maintaineth his Church.
Daniel 8:11He labored to abolish all religion, and therefore cast God’s service out of his Temple, which God had chosen as a little corner from all the rest of the world to have his Name there truly called upon.
