Daniel 10

ECB(i) 1
In the third year of Koresh sovereign of Persia a word is exposed to Dani El, whose name is called Belte Shats Tsar; and the word is truth and the hostility is great: and he discerns the word and discernment of the vision. 2 In those days I, Dani El mourn three weeks of days: 3 I neither eat bread of desire nor flesh and wine come into my mouth; and in anointing, I anoint not myself until the fulfilling of three weeks of days: 4 and in the twenty-fourth day of the first month, I am by the hand of the great river Hiddeqel; 5 and I lift my eyes and see; and behold, one man enrobed in linen, with loins girded with fine ore of Uphaz: 6 and his body as the beryl; and his face as the visage of lightning; and his eyes as flambeaus of fire; and his arms and his feet as the eye of burnished copper; and the voice of his words as the voice of a multitude. 7 And I, Dani El alone see the vision; and the men with me see not the vision: and a great trembling falls on them; so that they flee to hide themselves: 8 and I alone remain and see this great vision; and no force remains in me: for the majesty in me turns into ruin and I retain no force: 9 yet I hear the voice of his words: and I hear the voice of his words, and I sleep soundly on my face with my face toward the earth: 10 and behold, a hand touches me, which staggers my knees and the palms of my hands. 11 And he says to me, O Dani El, a man desired, discern the words I word to you, in standing, stand: for I am now sent to you. - and when he words this word to me, I stand trembling. 12 And he says to me, Awe not, Dani El: for from the first day you gave your heart to discern and to humble yourself at the face of your Elohim, I heard your words; and I come because of your words: 13 and the governor of the sovereigndom of Persia stands against me twenty-one days: and behold, Michah El, one of the head governors, comes to help me; and I remain there beside the sovereigns of Persia. 14 I come so that you discern what befalls your people in the latter days: for the vision is yet for days. 15 And he words such words to me, and I give my face toward the earth, and I am mute: 16 and behold, a likeness of the sons of humanity touches my lips: and I open my mouth and word, and say to him standing in front of me, O my adoni, because of the vision, my pangs turn on me and I retain no force. 17 For how can the servant of my adoni word this with my adoni? For as for me, at this time, neither force stands in me, yes, nor breath remains in me. 18 And as the visage of a human comes again and touches me and strengthens me, 19 and says, O man desired, awe not; shalom to you: be strong; yes, be strong. And when he words to me, I strengthen, and say, My adoni, word; for you strengthened me. 20 And he says, Know you why I come to you? And now I return to fight with the governor of Persia: and when I go, behold, the governor of Yavan comes: 21 but I tell you what is signified in the inscribing of truth: and no one holds with me in these except Michah El your governor.
