The vision of the goat (Dan 8:5-8:5)

“As I was watching,

A male goat

Appeared

From the west.

It came across

The face

Of the whole earth,

Without touching

The ground.

The goat

Had a conspicuous horn

Between its eyes.”

While Daniel was watching the ram, a goat from the west appeared, maybe a reference to Alexander the Great (356-323 BCE). This goat was a like a flying animal, but there was no mention of any wings. This goat simply moved without touching the ground. However, it did have a horn between its eyes, like a unicorn.

The grain offerings (Ezek 46:11-46:11)

“At the festivals

Or the appointed seasons,

The grain offering

With a young bull

Shall be an ephah.

The grain offering

With a ram

Shall be an ephah.

The grain offering

With the lambs

Shall be as much

As one wished to give.

There shall be together

A hin of oil

With every ephah.”

At all the religious festivals, a grain offering of an ephah (2/3rds of a bushel) would accompany the young bull or the ram. However, as stated earlier, the prince could provide as much grain as he wanted to for the sacrifice of the lambs. However, with every ephah of grain, there had to be a gallon or hin of oil. It seems that the animals were cooked in oil with grains.
