Chapter 10

1.1
In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, even a great warfare.
1.2
He understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.
2.1
In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three whole weeks.
3.1
I ate no pleasant bread. No meat or wine came into my mouth.
3.2
I didn’t anoint myself at all, until three whole weeks were fulfilled.
4.1
In the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel,
5.1
I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold, there was a man clothed in linen, whose thighs were adorned with pure gold of Uphaz. His body also was like beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as flaming torches.
6.1
His arms and his feet were like burnished bronze. The voice of his words was like the voice of a multitude. I, Daniel, alone saw the vision;
7.1
for the men who were with me didn’t see the vision; but a great quaking fell on them, and they fled to hide themselves.
8.1
So I was left alone, and saw this great vision.
9.1
Yet I heard the voice of his words. When I heard the voice of his words, then I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face toward the ground. Behold, a hand touched me, which set me on my knees and on the palms of my hands.
11.1
He said to me, “Daniel, you greatly beloved man, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright; for I have been sent to you, now.” When he had spoken this word to me, I stood trembling.
12.1
Then he said to me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard.
12.2
I have come for your words’ sake. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me because I remained there with the kings of Persia.
14.1
Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for many days.”
15.1
When he had spoken these words to me, I set my face toward the ground, and was mute.
16.1
Behold, one in the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips. Then I opened my mouth, and spoke and said to him who stood before me, “My lord, by reason of the vision my sorrows have overtaken me, and I retain no strength. For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord?
17.1
For as for me, immediately there remained no strength in me. There was no breath left in me.” Then one like the appearance of a man touched me again, and he strengthened me.
19.1
He said, “Greatly beloved man, don’t be afraid. Peace be to you. Be strong. Yes, be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak; for you have strengthened me.”

Chapter 11

31.1
“Forces will stand on his part, and they will profane the sanctuary, even the fortress, and will take away the continual burnt offering.
31.2
Then they will set up the abomination that makes desolate.
32.1
He will corrupt those who do wickedly against the covenant by flatteries;
32.2
but the people who know their God will be strong, and take action.
33.1
“Those who are wise among the people will instruct many; yet they will fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by plunder, many days.
34.1
Now when they fall, they will be helped with a little help;
34.2
but many will join themselves to them with flatteries.
35.1
Some of those who are wise will fall, to refine them, and to purify, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed.
36.1
“The king will do according to his will. He will exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and will speak marvelous things against the God of gods.
36.2
He will prosper until the indignation is accomplished; for that which is determined will be done.

Chapter 10

1

In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, even a great warfare. He understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.

In[H8141] the[H7121] third[H7969] year[H8141] of[H4428] Cyrus[H3566] king[H4428] of[H4428] Persia[H6539] a[H7121] message[H1697] was[H8034] revealed[H1540] to[H4428] Daniel,[H1840] whose[H8034] name[H8034] was[H8034] called[H7121] Belteshazzar;[H1095] and[H4428] the[H7121] message[H1697] was[H8034] true,[H571] even[H1840] a[H7121] great[H1419] warfare.[H6635] He[H8141] understood[H995] the[H7121] message,[H1697] and[H4428] had[H4428] understanding[H998] of[H4428] the[H7121] vision.[H4758]

2

In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three whole weeks.

In[H3117] those[H1992] days[H3117] I,[H3117] Daniel,[H1840] was[H1961] mourning[H60] three[H7969] whole[H3117] weeks.[H7620]
3

I ate no pleasant bread. No meat or wine came into my mouth. I didn’t anoint myself at all, until three whole weeks were fulfilled.

I[H3117] ate[H398] no[H3808] pleasant[H2530] food.[H3899] No[H3808] meat[H1320] or[H3808] wine[H3196] came[H1320] into[H5704] my[H4390] mouth.[H6310] I[H3117] didn’t[H3808] anoint[H5480] myself[H1320] at[H3117] all,[H5704] until[H5704] three[H7969] whole[H3117] weeks[H7620] were[H3117] fulfilled.[H4390]
4
In the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel,
In[H5921] the[H5921] twenty-fourth[H6242] day[H3117] of[H3117] the[H5921] first[H7223] month,[H2320] as[H3117] I[H3117] was[H1961] by[H3027] the[H5921] side[H3027] of[H3117] the[H5921] great[H1419] river,[H5104] which[H1931] is[H1931] Hiddekel,[H2313]
5

I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold, there was a man clothed in linen, whose thighs were adorned with pure gold of Uphaz.

I[H2009] lifted[H5375] up[H5375] my[H7200] eyes[H5869] and[H5869] looked,[H7200] and[H5869] behold,[H2009] there[H2009] was[H4975] a[H5375] man[H5375] clothed[H3847] in[H3847] linen,[H8336] whose[H834] waist[H4975] was[H4975] adorned[H5710] with[H3847] pure[H3800] gold[H3800] of[H5869] Uphaz.[H210]
6

His body also was like beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as flaming torches. His arms and his feet were like burnished bronze. The voice of his words was like the voice of a multitude.

His[H6440] body[H1472] also[H5869] was[H1697] like[H4758] beryl,[H8658] and[H6963] his[H6440] face[H6440] as[H1697] the[H6440] appearance[H4758] of[H1697] lightning,[H1300] and[H6963] his[H6440] eyes[H5869] as[H1697] flaming[H3852] torches.[H3940] His[H6440] arms[H2220] and[H6963] his[H6440] feet[H4772] were[H5869] like[H4758] burnished[H7044] bronze.[H5178] The[H6440] voice[H6963] of[H1697] his[H6440] words[H1697] was[H1697] like[H4758] the[H6440] voice[H6963] of[H1697] a[H6440] multitude.[H1995]
7

I, Daniel, alone saw the vision; for the men who were with me didn’t see the vision; but a great quaking fell on them, and they fled to hide themselves.

I,[H5921] Daniel,[H1840] alone[H905] saw[H7200] the[H5921] vision,[H4759] for[H5921] the[H5921] men[H1419] who[H3808] were[H1961] with[H5973] me[H7200] didn’t[H3808] see[H7200] the[H5921] vision,[H4759] but[H3808] a[H1961] great[H1419] quaking[H2731] fell[H5307] on[H5921] them,[H5921] and[H1419] they[H3808] fled[H1272] to[H1961] hide[H2244] themselves.[H2244]
8

So I was left alone, and saw this great vision. No strength remained in me; for my face grew deathly pale, and I retained no strength.

So[H3808] I[H5921] was[H3808] left[H7604] alone[H905] and[H1419] saw[H7200] this[H2063] great[H1419] vision.[H4759] No[H3808] strength[H3581] remained[H7604] in[H5921] me;[H7200] for[H5921] my[H7200] face[H7200] grew[H1431] deathly[H4889] pale,[H6289] and[H1419] I[H5921] retained[H6113] no[H3808] strength.[H3581]
9

Yet I heard the voice of his words. When I heard the voice of his words, then I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face toward the ground.

Yet[H5921] I[H5921] heard[H8085] the[H6440] voice[H6963] of[H1697] his[H8085] words.[H1697] When[H1961] I[H5921] heard[H8085] the[H6440] voice[H6963] of[H1697] his[H8085] words,[H1697] then[H1961] I[H5921] fell[H1961] into[H5921] a[H1961] deep[H7290] sleep[H7290] on[H5921] my[H8085] face,[H6440] with[H5921] my[H8085] face[H6440] toward[H6440] the[H6440] ground.[H6440]
10
Behold, a hand touched me, which set me on my knees and on the palms of my hands.
Behold,[H2009] a[H5921] hand[H3027] touched[H5060] me,[H5921] which[H834] set[H5128] me[H5921] on[H5921] my[H5921] knees[H1290] and[H3027] on[H5921] the[H5921] palms[H3709] of[H3027] my[H5921] hands.[H3027]
11

He said to me, “Daniel, you greatly beloved man, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright; for I have been sent to you, now.” When he had spoken this word to me, I stood trembling.

He[H3588] said[H1696] to[H1696] me,[H7971] “Daniel,[H1840] you[H3588] greatly[H3966] beloved[H1730] man,[H2088] understand[H995] the[H5921] words[H1697] that[H3588] I[H3588] speak[H1696] to[H1696] you,[H3588] and[H7971] stand[H5975] upright,[H5975] for[H3588] I[H3588] have[H1697] been[H6258] sent[H7971] to[H1696] you,[H3588] now.”[H6258] When[H3588] he[H3588] had[H3588] spoken[H1696] this[H2088] word[H1697] to[H1696] me,[H7971] I[H3588] stood[H5975] trembling.[H7460]
12

Then he said to me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard. I have come for your words’ sake.

Then[H5414] he[H3588] said[H1697] to[H5414] me,[H5414] “Don’t[H408] be[H1697] afraid,[H3372] Daniel;[H1840] for[H3588] from[H4480] the[H6440] first[H7223] day[H3117] that[H3588] you[H3588] set[H5414] your[H5414] heart[H3820] to[H5414] understand,[H8085] and[H3117] to[H5414] humble[H6031] yourself[H6031] before[H6440] your[H5414] God,[H5414] your[H5414] words[H1697] were[H3117] heard.[H8085] I[H3588] have[H1697] come[H935] for[H3588] your[H5414] words’ sake.[H1697]
13
But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me because I remained there with the kings of Persia.
But[H2009] the[H3117] prince[H8269] of[H4428] the[H3117] kingdom[H4438] of[H4428] Persia[H6539] withstood[H5975] me[H5048] twenty-one[H6242] days;[H3117] but,[H2009] behold,[H2009] Michael,[H4317] one[H7223] of[H4428] the[H3117] chief[H8269] princes,[H8269] came[H7223] to[H3117] help[H5826] me[H5048] because[H3117] I[H3117] remained[H3498] there[H8033] with[H3117] the[H3117] kings[H4428] of[H4428] Persia.[H6539]
14

Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for many days.”

Now[H3117] I[H3588] have[H5971] come[H7136] to[H3117] make[H7136] you[H3588] understand[H995] what[H3588] will[H5971] happen[H7136] to[H3117] your[H3588] people[H5971] in[H3117] the[H3588] latter[H319] days,[H3117] for[H3588] the[H3588] vision[H2377] is[H3117] yet[H5750] for[H3588] many[H7227] days.”[H3117]
15

When he had spoken these words to me, I set my face toward the ground, and was mute.

When[H1696] he[H5414] had[H5414] spoken[H1696] these[H1696] words[H1697] to[H1696] me,[H6440] I[H5414] set[H5414] my[H5414] face[H6440] toward[H6440] the[H6440] ground[H6440] and[H6440] was[H1697] mute.[H483]
16

Behold, one in the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips. Then I opened my mouth, and spoke and said to him who stood before me, “My lord, by reason of the vision my sorrows have overtaken me, and I retain no strength.

Behold,[H2009] one[H3808] in[H5921] the[H5921] likeness[H1823] of[H1121] the[H5921] sons[H1121] of[H1121] men[H1121] touched[H5060] my[H5921] lips.[H8193] Then[H1696] I[H2009] opened[H6605] my[H5921] mouth,[H6310] and[H1121] spoke[H1696] and[H1121] said[H1696] to[H1696] him[H5921] who[H1121] stood[H5975] before[H5048] me,[H5921] “My[H5921] lord,[H3068] by[H5921] reason[H5921] of[H1121] the[H5921] vision[H4759] my[H5921] sorrows[H6735] have[H1121] overtaken[H5381] me,[H5921] and[H1121] I[H2009] retain[H6113] no[H3808] strength.[H3581]
17
For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? For as for me, immediately there remained no strength in me. There was no breath left in me.”
For[H5650] how[H1963] can[H3201] the[H5975] servant[H5650] of[H5650] this[H2088] my[H1696] lord[H3068] talk[H1696] with[H5973] this[H2088] my[H1696] lord?[H3068] For[H5650] as[H1696] for[H5650] me,[H1696] immediately[H6965] there[H2088] remained[H7604] no[H3808] strength[H3581] in[H1696] me.[H1696] There[H2088] was[H2088] no[H3808] breath[H5397] left[H7604] in[H1696] me.”[H1696]
18
Then one like the appearance of a man touched me again, and he strengthened me.
Then[H3254] one[H259] like[H4758] the[H2388] appearance[H4758] of[H4758] a[H2388] man[H376] touched[H5060] me[H3254] again,[H3254] and[H2388] he[H3254] strengthened[H2388] me.[H3254]
19
He said, “Greatly beloved man, don’t be afraid. Peace be to you. Be strong. Yes, be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak; for you have strengthened me.”
He[H3588] said,[H1696] “Greatly[H3966] beloved[H1730] man,[H376] don’t[H408] be[H3372] afraid.[H3372] Peace[H7965] be[H3372] to[H1696] you.[H3588] Be[H3372] strong.[H2388] Yes,[H3588] be[H3372] strong.”[H2388] When[H3588] he[H3588] spoke[H1696] to[H1696] me,[H1696] I[H3588] was[H3372] strengthened,[H2388] and[H2388] said,[H1696] “Let[H7971] my[H1696] lord[H3068] speak,[H1696] for[H3588] you[H3588] have[H7965] strengthened[H2388] me.”[H1696]
20
Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Now I will return to fight with the prince of Persia. When I go out, behold, the prince of Greece will come.
Then[H2009] he[H3318] said,[H3318] “Do[H4100] you[H7725] know[H3045] why[H4100] I[H2009] have[H3045] come[H3318] to[H7725] you?[H7725] Now[H6258] I[H2009] will[H4100] return[H7725] to[H7725] fight[H3898] with[H5973] the[H7725] prince[H8269] of[H8269] Persia.[H6539] When[H3318] I[H2009] go[H3318] out,[H3318] behold,[H2009] the[H7725] prince[H8269] of[H8269] Greece[H3120] will[H4100] come.[H3318]
21
But I will tell you that which is inscribed in the writing of truth. There is no one who holds with me against these, but Michael your prince.
But[H3588] I[H3588] will[H8269] tell[H5046] you[H3588] that[H3588] which[H8269] is[H3588] inscribed[H7559] in[H5921] the[H5921] writing[H3791] of[H8269] truth.[H571] There[H8033] is[H3588] no[H3808] one[H3588] who[H3588] holds[H2388] with[H5973] me[H5046] against[H5921] these[H5046] but[H3588] Michael[H4317] your[H5921] prince.[H8269]

Chapter 11

1
“As for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to confirm and strengthen him.
2
“Now I will show you the truth. Behold, three more kings will stand up in Persia; and the fourth will be far richer than all of them. When he has grown strong through his riches, he will stir up all against the realm of Greece.
3
A mighty king will stand up, who will rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.
4
When he stands up, his kingdom will be broken, and will be divided toward the four winds of the sky, but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom will be plucked up, even for others besides these.
5
“The king of the south will be strong. One of his princes will become stronger than him, and have dominion. His dominion will be a great dominion.
6
At the end of years they will join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south will come to the king of the north to make an agreement; but she will not retain the strength of her arm. He will also not stand, nor will his arm; but she will be given up, with those who brought her, and he who became the father of her, and he who strengthened her in those times.
7
“But out of a shoot from her roots one will stand up in his place, who will come to the army, and will enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and will deal against them, and will prevail.
8
He will also carry their gods, with their molten images, and with their goodly vessels of silver and of gold, captive into Egypt. He will refrain some years from the king of the north.
9
He will come into the realm of the king of the south, but he will return into his own land.
10
His sons will wage war, and will assemble a multitude of great forces, which will come on, and overflow, and pass through. They will return and wage war, even to his fortress.
