 Daniel 9:27Eschatology

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [4]

kon - su - mā´shun ( כּלּיון , killāyōn from כּלה , kālāh ): The word, meaning destruction, completion, or failing ( Isaiah 10:23;  Isaiah 28:22;  Daniel 9:27 ) is translated interchangeably in the King James Version for another Hebrew word referring to a physical disease, and best translated "consumption"; compare  Leviticus 26:16;  Deuteronomy 28:22 . Not used in the Revised Version (British and American). The Hebrew variously but more accurately translated "full end"; compare  Daniel 9:27;  Isaiah 10:23; and "destruction"; compare  Isaiah 10:22;  Isaiah 28:22 . There seems therefore to be an inconsistency on the part of both the Authorized and Revised translations.
