1 H7969 In the third H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia H1697 a thing H1540 was revealed [H8738] H1840 unto Daniel H8034 , whose name H7121 was called [H8738] H1095 Belteshazzar H1697 ; and the thing H571 was true H6635 , but the time appointed H1419 was long H995 : and he understood [H8804] H1697 the thing H998 , and had understanding H4758 of the vision.
3 H398 I ate [H8804] H2532 no pleasant H3899 bread H935 , neither came [H8804] H1320 flesh H3196 nor wine H6310 in my mouth H5480 , neither did I anoint [H8804] H5480 myself at all [H8800] H7969 , till three H3117 whole H7620 weeks H4390 were fulfilled [H8800] .
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 Then I lifted up [H8799] H5869 mine eyes H7200 , and looked [H8799] H259 , and behold a certain H376 man H3847 clothed [H8803] H906 in linen H4975 , whose loins H2296 were girded [H8803] H3800 with fine 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 H3940 as lamps H784 of fire H2220 , and his arms H4772 and his feet H5869 like in colour H7044 to polished 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 [H8804] H4759 the vision H582 : for the men H7200 that were with me saw [H8804] H4759 not the vision H61 ; but H1419 a great H2731 quaking H5307 fell [H8804] H1272 upon them, so that they fled [H8799] H2244 to hide [H8736] themselves.
8 H7604 Therefore I was left alone [H8738] H7200 , and saw [H8799] H1419 this great H4759 vision H7604 , and there remained [H8738] H3581 no strength H1935 in me: for my comeliness H2015 was turned [H8738] H4889 in me into corruption H6113 , and I retained [H8804] H3581 no strength.
9 H8085 Yet heard [H8799] H6963 I the voice H1697 of his words H8085 : and when I heard [H8800] H6963 the voice H1697 of his words H7290 , then was I in a deep sleep [H8737] H6440 on my face H6440 , and my face H776 toward the ground.
10 H3027 And, behold, an hand H5060 touched [H8804] H5128 me, which set [H8686] H1290 me upon my knees H3709 and upon the palms H3027 of my hands.
11 H559 And he said [H8799] H1840 unto me, O Daniel H376 , a man H2532 greatly beloved H995 , understand [H8685] H1697 the words H1696 that I speak [H8802] H5975 unto thee, and stand [H8798] H5977 upright H7971 : for unto thee am I now sent [H8795] H1696 . And when he had spoken [H8763] H1697 this word H5975 unto me, I stood [H8804] H7460 trembling [H8688] .
12 H559 Then said [H8799] H3372 he unto me, Fear [H8799] H1840 not, Daniel H7223 : for from the first H3117 day H5414 that thou didst set [H8804] H3820 thine heart H995 to understand [H8687] H6031 , and to chasten [H8692] H6440 thyself before H430 thy God H1697 , thy words H8085 were heard [H8738] H935 , and I am come [H8804] H1697 for thy words.
13 H8269 But the prince H4438 of the kingdom H6539 of Persia H5975 withstood [H8802] H259 me one H6242 and twenty H3117 days H4317 : but, lo, Michael H259 , one H7223 of the chief H8269 princes H935 , came [H8804] H5826 to help [H8800] H3498 me; and I remained [H8738] H681 there with H4428 the kings H6539 of Persia.
14 H935 Now I am come [H8804] H995 to make thee understand [H8687] H7136 what shall befall [H8799] H5971 thy people H319 in the latter H3117 days H2377 : for yet the vision H3117 is for many days.
15 H1696 And when he had spoken [H8763] H1697 such words H5414 unto me, I set [H8804] H6440 my face H776 toward the ground H481 , and I became dumb [H8738] .
16 H1823 And, behold, one like the similitude H1121 of the sons H120 of men H5060 touched [H8802] H8193 my lips H6605 : then I opened [H8799] H6310 my mouth H1696 , and spake [H8762] H559 , and said [H8799] H5975 unto him that stood [H8802] H113 before me, O my lord H4759 , by the vision H6735 my sorrows H2015 are turned [H8738] H6113 upon me, and I have retained [H8804] H3581 no strength.
17 H1963 For how H3201 can [H8799] H5650 the servant H113 of this my lord H1696 talk [H8763] H113 with this my lord H6258 ? for as for me, straightway H5975 there remained [H8799] H3581 no strength H5397 in me, neither is there breath H7604 left [H8738] in me.
18 H3254 Then there came again [H8686] H5060 and touched [H8799] H4758 me one like the appearance H120 of a man H2388 , and he strengthened [H8762] me,
19 H559 And said [H8799] H376 , O man H2532 greatly beloved H3372 , fear [H8799] H7965 not: peace H2388 be unto thee, be strong [H8798] H2388 , yea, be strong [H8798] H1696 . And when he had spoken [H8763] H2388 unto me, I was strengthened [H8694] H559 , and said [H8799] H113 , Let my lord H1696 speak [H8762] H2388 ; for thou hast strengthened [H8765] me.
20 H559 Then said [H8799] H3045 he, Knowest [H8804] H935 thou wherefore I come [H8804] H7725 unto thee? and now will I return [H8799] H3898 to fight [H8736] H8269 with the prince H6539 of Persia H3318 : and when I am gone forth [H8802] H8269 , lo, the prince H3120 of Grecia H935 shall come [H8804] .
