1. When did Daniel have the second vision?
Read: Daniel 7:1​
In the __________ year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters.
2. What did Daniel first see?
Read: Daniel 7:2
Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the __________ of the heaven strove upon the __________ .
3. What was the result of this strife?
Read: Daniel 7:3
And four great __________ came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
4. What did the beasts represent?
Read: Daniel 7:17​; Daniel 7:23
These great beasts, which are four, are four __________, which shall arise out of the earth. (7:17)
Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth __________ upon earth. (7:23) 
NOTE: The word 'king' in verse 17 means 'kingdom', as explained in verse 23. As a 'beast' in Bible prophecy represents a 'kingdom,' the vision portrays the rise of four great kingdoms that are different one from another.
5. What happened after the fourth beast [the fourth kingdom]?
Read: Daniel 7:12-14
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the __________ came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a __________ , that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his __________ that which shall not be destroyed. (7:13,14)
NOTE: In Daniel 2, after the fourth kingdom, came a kingdom 'that shall never be destroyed' (Daniel 2:44). In Daniel 7, after the fourth kingdom, came a kingdom 'that shall not be destroyed' (Daniel 7:14). Therefore, the four great kingdoms in Daniel 7 are identical with those in Daniel 2, namely Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.
