Daniel spoke and said, “I saw in my vision at night. Behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea” (Daniel 7:2).
The sea is specifically called “the Great Sea,” a term which is used elsewhere in the OT (in Hebrew) to refer to the Mediterranean Sea (Num 34:6-7, Josh 1:4, Ezek 47:10). Each of the kingdoms in this vision dominated the Mediterranean region. This photograph was taken near Fort Qaitbay, site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria.
