Daniel 11:19-21 Living Bible (TLB)

19 He will turn homeward again but will have trouble on the way and disappear.

20 “His successor[a] will be remembered as the king who sent a tax collector into Israel, but after a very brief reign, he will die mysteriously, though neither in battle nor in riot.

21 “Next to come to power will be an evil man not directly in line for royal succession.[b] But during a crisis he will take over the kingdom by flattery and intrigue.
