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