8.0 The Audition About the Sanctuary

Exegesis of Daniel 8:13-14

In these verses Daniel’s attention is directed to a conversation between two holy beings in the heavenly realms. “They speak about the vision, particularly about the horn’s attack upon the sanctuary” (both earthly and heavenly) “and God’s people.”(89) A brief exegetical synopsis will be presented on verse 13 which will be followed by an explanation of the audition in the context of the cultic language used throughout the vision. The exposition will conclude with the “thesis-antithesis” arrangement of verses 13 and 14 related to the trampling and the cleansing or “putting right” (sadaq) of the sanctuary.
