In the thirdH7969 yearH8141 of CyrusH3566 kingH4428 of PersiaH6539 a thingH1697 was revealedH1540 to Daniel,H1840 whoseH834 nameH8034 was calledH7121 Belteshazzar;H1095 and the thingH1697 was true,H571 but the time appointedH6635 was long:H1419 and he understoodH995 the thing,H1697 and had understandingH998 of the vision.H4758
In thoseH1992 daysH3117 I DanielH1840 was mourningH56 threeH7969 fullH3117 weeks.H7620
I ateH398 noH3808 pleasantH2530 bread,H3899 neitherH3808 cameH935 fleshH1320 norH3808 wineH3196 in my mouth,H6310 neitherH3808 did I anointH5480 myself at all, tillH5704 threeH7969 wholeH3117 weeksH7620 were fulfilled.H4390
And in the fourH702 and twentiethH6242 dayH3117 of the firstH7223 month,H2320 as I was by the sideH3027 of the greatH1419 river,H5104 whichH1931 is Hiddekel;H2313
Then I liftedH5375 up my eyes,H5869 and looked,H7200 and beholdH2009 a certainH259 manH376 clothedH3847 in linen,H906 whose loinsH4975 were girdedH2296 with fine goldH3800 of Uphaz:H210
His bodyH1472 also was like the beryl,H8658 and his faceH6440 as the appearanceH4758 of lightning,H1300 and his eyesH5869 as lampsH3940 of fire,H784 and his armsH2220 and his feetH4772 like in colorH5869 to polishedH7044 brass,H5178 and the voiceH6963 of his wordsH1697 like the voiceH6963 of a multitude.H1995
And I DanielH1840 aloneH905 sawH7200 the vision:H4759 for the menH582 that were with me sawH7200 not the vision;H4759 but a greatH1419 quakingH2731 fellH5307 on them, so that they fledH1272 to hideH2244 themselves.
Therefore I was leftH7604 alone,H905 and sawH7200 this greatH1419 vision,H4759 and there remainedH7604 noH3808 strengthH3581 in me: for my comelinessH1935 was turnedH2015 in me into corruption,H4889 and I retainedH6113 noH3808 strength.H3581
Yet heardH8085 I the voiceH6963 of his words:H1697 and when I heardH8085 the voiceH6963 of his words,H1697 then was I in a deepH7290 sleepH7290 onH5921 my face,H6440 and my faceH6440 toward the ground.H776
And, behold,H2009 an handH3027 touchedH5060 me, which setH5128 me on my kneesH1290 and on the palmsH3709 of my hands.H3027
And he saidH559 to me, O Daniel,H1840 a manH376 greatly beloved,H2530 understandH995 the wordsH1697 that I speakH1696 to you, and standH5975 upright:H5977 for to you am I nowH6258 sent.H7971 And when he had spokenH1696 thisH2088 wordH1697 to me, I stoodH5975 trembling.H7460
Then saidH559 he to me, FearH3372 not, Daniel:H1840 for from the firstH7223 dayH3117 that you did setH5414 your heartH3820 to understand,H995 and to chastenH6031 yourself beforeH6440 your God,H430 your wordsH1697 were heard,H8085 and I am comeH935 for your words.H1697
But the princeH8269 of the kingdomH4438 of PersiaH6539 withstoodH5975 me oneH259 and twentyH6242 days:H3117 but, see,H2009 Michael,H4317 oneH259 of the chiefH7223 princes,H8269 cameH935 to helpH5826 me; and I remainedH3498 thereH8033 with the kingsH4428 of Persia.H6539
Now I am comeH935 to make you understandH995 whatH853 H834 shall befallH7136 your peopleH5971 in the latterH319 days:H3117 for yetH5750 the visionH2377 is for many days.H3117
And when he had spokenH1696 suchH428 wordsH1697 to me, I setH5414 my faceH6440 toward the ground,H776 and I becameH481 dumb.H481
And, behold,H2009 one like the similitudeH1823 of the sonsH1121 of menH120 touchedH5060 my lips:H8193 then I openedH6605 my mouth,H6310 and spoke,H1696 and saidH559 to him that stoodH5975 beforeH5048 me, O my lord,H113 by the visionH4758 my sorrowsH6735 are turnedH2015 on me, and I have retainedH6113 noH3808 strength.H3581
For howH1963 canH3201 the servantH5650 of thisH2088 my lordH113 talkH1696 with thisH2088 my lord?H113 for as for me, straightwayH6258 there remainedH5975 noH3808 strengthH3581 in me, neitherH3808 is there breathH5397 leftH7604 in me.
Then there came againH3254 and touchedH5060 me one like the appearanceH4758 of a man,H120 and he strengthenedH2388 me,
And said,H559 O manH376 greatly beloved,H2530 fearH3372 not: peaceH7965 be to you, be strong,H2388 yes, be strong.H2388 And when he had spokenH1696 to me, I was strengthened,H2388 and said,H559 Let my lordH113 speak;H1696 for you have strengthenedH2388 me.
Then saidH559 he, KnowH3045 you whyH4100 I comeH935 to you? and nowH6258 will I returnH7725 to fightH3898 with the princeH8269 of Persia:H6539 and when I am goneH3318 forth,H3318 see,H2009 the princeH8269 of GreciaH3120 shall come.H935
But I will showH5046 you that which is notedH7559 in the scriptureH3791 of truth:H571 and there is noneH369 that holdsH2388 with me in theseH428 things, but MichaelH4317 your prince.H8269
