“After this, I saw in the visions by night, and behold, the fourth beast was fearful and terrible and very strong. It had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue under his feet: and it was unlike to the beasts that were before it: for it had ten horns.”

Daniel 7:7

“And I saw a beast rise out of the sea, having seven heads, and ten horns, and upon his horns were ten crowns, and upon his head the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet like a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power and his throne, and great authority.”

Rev 13:1-2

“Here is the mind that hath wisdom, The seven heads are seven mountains, whereon the woman sitteth: they are also seven Kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come: and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”

Rev 17:9-10
