2 ¶ In those days, I, Daniel, had been amourning for three entire weeks. 3 I adid not eat any Itasty 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 ariver, that is, the ITigris, 5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man adressed in linen, whose waist was bgirded with [a belt of] pure cgold of Uphaz. 6 His body also [was] like Iberyl, his face IIhad the appearance of lightning, ahis 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 IIItumult. 7 Now I, Daniel, aalone saw the vision, while the bmen who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great cdread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves. 8 So I was aleft alone and saw this great vision; yet bno strength was left in me, for my Inatural color turned to IIa 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 afell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.

Daniel Comforted

10 ¶ Then behold, a hand atouched me and set me trembling on my Ihands and knees. 11 He said to me, “O aDaniel, man of Ihigh esteem, bunderstand the words that I am about to tell you and cstand IIupright, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up dtrembling. 12 Then he said to me, “aDo not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding [this] and on bhumbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response cto your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was Iwithstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, aMichael, 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 agive you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the Iblatter days, for the vision pertains to cthe days yet [future].”

As for me, there remains just now bno strength in me, nor has any breath been left in me.”

Peace IIbe with you; take bcourage and be courageous!” Now as soon as he spoke to me, I received strength and said, “May my lord speak, for you have cstrengthened me.” 20 Then he said, “Do you Iunderstand why I came to you?

Daniel having humbled himself seeth a vision.

1 ¶ In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing [was] true, but the time appointed [was] long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision. 2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. 4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which [is] Hiddekel; 5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins [were] girded with fine gold of Uphaz: 6 His body also [was] like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. 7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. 8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. 9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.

Being troubled with fear he is comforted by the angel.

10 ¶ And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and [upon] the palms of my hands. 11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. 12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision [is] for [many] days. 15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb. 16 And, behold, [one] like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength. 17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me. 18 Then there came again and touched me [one] like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, 19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace [be] unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. 20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. 21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and [there is] none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
