Daniel Is Terrified by a Vision

1 In the third year of Cyrus R466 king of Persia a message F295 was revealed to Daniel, R467 who was named Belteshazzar; and the message R468 F295 was true and one of great conflict, F296 but he understood the message F295 and had an understanding R469 of the vision.

2 In those days, I, Daniel, had been mourning R470 for three entire weeks. 3 I did R471 not eat any tasty F297 food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed. 4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great river, R472 that is, the Tigris, F298 5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed R473 in linen, whose waist was girded R474 with a belt of pure gold R475 of Uphaz. 6 His body also was like beryl, F299 his face had F300 the appearance of lightning, his R476 eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult. F301 7 Now I, Daniel, alone R477 saw the vision, while the men R478 who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread R479 fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves. 8 So I was left R480 alone and saw this great vision; yet no R481 strength was left in me, for my natural F302 color turned to a F303 deathly pallor, and I retained no strength. 9 But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell R482 into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.

Daniel Comforted

10 Then behold, a hand touched R483 me and set me trembling on my hands F304 and knees. 11 He said to me, "O Daniel, R484 man of high F305 esteem, understand R485 the words that I am about to tell you and stand R486 upright, F306 for I have now been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. R487 12 Then he said to me, "Do R488 not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling R489 yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to R490 your words. 13 "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding F307 me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, R491 one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. 14 "Now I have come to give R492 you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter R493 F308 days, for the vision pertains to the R494 days yet future."

15 When he had spoken to me according to these words, I turned F309 my face toward the ground and became speechless. R495 16 And behold, one R496 F310 who resembled a human being was touching R497 my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke and said to him who was standing before me, "O my lord, as a result of the vision anguish R498 F311 has come upon me, and I have retained no strength. 17 "For how R499 can such a servant of my lord talk with such as my lord? As for me, there remains just now no R500 strength in me, nor has any breath been left in me."

18 Then this one with human appearance touched me again and strengthened R501 me. 19 He said, "O man of high F312 esteem, do R502 not be afraid. Peace be F313 with you; take courage R503 and be courageous!" Now as soon as he spoke to me, I received strength and said, "May my lord speak, for you have strengthened R504 me." 20 Then he said, "Do you understand F314 why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince F315 of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince R505 F315 of Greece F316 is about to come. 21 "However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. R506 Yet there is no one who stands F317 firmly with me against these forces except Michael R507 your prince.
