Daniel's Prayer for His People

1 In the first year of Darius R411 the son of Ahasuerus, of Median descent, who was made king over the kingdom of the Chaldeans-- 2 in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, observed in the books the number of the years which was revealed as the word of the LORD to Jeremiah R412 the prophet for the completion of the desolations of Jerusalem, namely, seventy R412 years. 3 So I gave F263 my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. 4 I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed and said, "Alas, O Lord, the great R413 and awesome God, who keeps R414 His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, 5 we R415 have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, R416 even turning R417 aside from Your commandments and ordinances. 6 "Moreover, we have not listened R418 to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers and all the people of the land.

7 "Righteousness R419 belongs to You, O Lord, but to us open R420 F264 shame, as it is this day--to the men of Judah, the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those who are nearby and those who are far away in all R421 the countries to which You have driven them, because of their unfaithful deeds which they have committed against You. 8 "Open F265 shame belongs to us, O Lord, to our kings, our princes and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. 9 "To the Lord our God belong compassion R422 and forgiveness, for F266 we have rebelled R423 against Him; 10 nor have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His teachings F267 which He set R424 before us through His servants the prophets. 11 "Indeed all R425 Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse R426 has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him. 12 "Thus He has confirmed R427 His words which He had spoken against us and against our rulers R428 F268 who ruled us, to bring on us great calamity; for under the whole heaven there has not R429 been done anything like what was done to Jerusalem. 13 "As it is written in the law R430 of Moses, all this calamity has come on us; yet we have not R431 sought F269 the favor of the LORD our God by turning R432 from our iniquity and giving F270 attention to Your truth. 14 "Therefore the LORD has kept R433 F271 the calamity in store and brought it on us; for the LORD our God is righteous R434 with respect to all His deeds which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice.

15 "And now, O Lord our God, who have brought R435 Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and have made R436 a name for Yourself, as it is this day--we have sinned, we have been wicked. 16 "O Lord, in accordance with all Your righteous F272 acts, let now Your anger R437 and Your wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy R438 mountain; for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach R439 to all those around us. 17 "So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your F273 sake, O Lord, let R440 Your face shine on Your desolate R441 sanctuary. 18 "O my God, incline R442 Your ear and hear! Open Your eyes and see R443 our desolations and the city which is called R444 by Your name; for we are not presenting R445 F274 our supplications before You on account of any F275 merits of our own, but on account of Your great compassion. 19 "O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my God, do R446 not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name."

Gabriel Brings an Answer

20 Now while I was speaking R447 and praying, and confessing R448 my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting F276 my supplication before the LORD my God in behalf of the holy mountain of my God, 21 while I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, R449 whom I had seen in the vision previously, F277 came F278 to me in F279 my extreme weariness about the time of the evening R450 offering. 22 He gave me instruction and talked with me and said, "O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you insight with understanding. R451 23 "At the beginning R452 of your supplications the command F280 was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly R453 F281 esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding R454 of the vision.

Seventy Weeks and the Messiah

24 "Seventy weeks R455 F282 have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish F283 the transgression, to make F284 an end of sin, to make R456 atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting R457 righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy F285 and to anoint the most holy place. 25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree R458 F286 to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah R459 F287 the Prince R460 there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza F288 and moat, even in times of distress. 26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah F289 will be cut R461 off and have nothing, F290 and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy R462 the city and the sanctuary. And its F291 end will come with a flood; R463 even to the end there F292 will be war; desolations are determined. 27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations R464 F293 will come one who makes F294 desolate, even until a complete R465 destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes F294 desolate."
