1 H7969 In the third H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia H1697 a thing H1540 was revealed H1840 unto Daniel, H8034 whose name H7121 was called H1095 Belteshazzar; H1697 and the thing H571 was true, H1419 even a great H6635 warfare: H995 and he understood H1697 the thing, H998 and had understanding H4758 of the vision.
3 H398 I ate H2532 no pleasant H3899 bread, H935 neither came H1320 flesh H3196 nor wine H6310 into my mouth, H5480 neither did I anoint H5480 myself at all, H7969 till three H3117 whole H7620 weeks H4390 were fulfilled.
4 H702 And in the four H6242 and twentieth H3117 day H7223 of the first H2320 month, H3027 as I was by the side H1419 of the great H5104 river, H2313 which is Hiddekel,
5 H5375 I lifted up H5869 mine eyes, H7200 and looked, H259 and, behold, a H376 man H3847 clothed H906 in linen, H4975 whose loins H2296 were girded H3800 with pure gold H210 of Uphaz:
6 H1472 his body H8658 also was like the beryl, H6440 and his face H4758 as the appearance H1300 of lightning, H5869 and his eyes H784 as flaming H3940 torches, H2220 and his arms H4772 and his feet H5869 like H7044 unto burnished H5178 brass, H6963 and the voice H1697 of his words H6963 like the voice H1995 of a multitude.
7 H1840 And I, Daniel, H7200 alone saw H4759 the vision; H582 for the men H7200 that were with me saw H4759 not the vision; H61 but H1419 a great H2731 quaking H5307 fell H1272 upon them, and they fled H2244 to hide themselves.
8 H7604 So I was left alone, H7200 and saw H1419 this great H4759 vision, H7604 and there remained H3581 no strength H1935 in me; for my comeliness H2015 was turned H4889 in me into corruption, H6113 and I retained H3581 no strength.
9 H8085 Yet heard H6963 I the voice H1697 of his words; H8085 and when I heard H6963 the voice H1697 of his words, H7290 then was I fallen into a deep sleep H6440 on my face, H6440 with my face H776 toward the ground.
10 H3027 And, behold, a hand H5060 touched H5128 me, which set H1290 me upon my knees H3709 and upon the palms H3027 of my hands.
11 H559 And he said H1840 unto me, O Daniel, H376 thou man H2532 greatly beloved, H995 understand H1697 the words H1696 that I speak H5975 unto thee, and stand H5977 upright; H7971 for unto thee am I now sent. H1696 And when he had spoken H1697 this word H5975 unto me, I stood H7460 trembling.
12 H559 Then said H3372 he unto me, Fear H1840 not, Daniel; H7223 for from the first H3117 day H5414 that thou didst set H3820 thy heart H995 to understand, H6031 and to humble H6440 thyself before H430 thy God, H1697 thy words H8085 were heard: H935 and I am come H1697 for thy words' sake.
13 H8269 But the prince H4438 of the kingdom H6539 of Persia H5975 withstood H259 me one H6242 and twenty H3117 days; H4317 but, lo, Michael, H259 one H7223 of the chief H8269 princes, H935 came H5826 to help H3498 me: and I remained H681 there with H4428 the kings H6539 of Persia.
14 H935 Now I am come H995 to make thee understand H7136 what shall befall H5971 thy people H319 in the latter H3117 days; H2377 for the vision H3117 is yet for many days:
15 H1696 and when he had spoken H1697 unto me according to these words, H5414 I set H6440 my face H776 toward the ground, H481 and was dumb.
16 H1823 And, behold, one in the likeness H1121 of the sons H120 of men H5060 touched H8193 my lips: H6605 then I opened H6310 my mouth, H1696 and spake H559 and said H5975 unto him that stood H113 before me, O my lord, H4759 by reason of the vision H6735 my sorrows H2015 are turned H6113 upon me, and I retain H3581 no strength.
17 H1963 For how H3201 can H5650 the servant H113 of this my lord H1696 talk H113 with this my lord? H6258 for as for me, straightway H5975 there remained H3581 no strength H5397 in me, neither was there breath H7604 left in me.
18 H5060 Then there touched H3254 me again H4758 one like the appearance H120 of a man, H2388 and he strengthened me.
19 H559 And he said, H376 O man H2532 greatly beloved, H3372 fear H7965 not: peace H2388 be unto thee, be strong, H2388 yea, be strong. H1696 And when he spake H2388 unto me, I was strengthened, H559 and said, H113 Let my lord H1696 speak; H2388 for thou hast strengthened me.
20 H559 Then said H3045 he, Knowest H935 thou wherefore I am come H7725 unto thee? and now will I return H3898 to fight H8269 with the prince H6539 of Persia: H3318 and when I go forth, H8269 lo, the prince H3120 of Greece H935 shall come.
