Dead Sea Scrolls

[Also his son] will be called The Great
and be designated by his name.
He will be called the Son of God,
they will call him the son of the Most High.
But like the meteors that you saw in your vision,
so will be their kingdom.
They will reign only a few years over the land,
while people tramples people and nation tramples nation. [4Q246]
