15 And now, O Lord our God, "that hast
brought thy people forth out of the land of
Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast f gotten
thee ^renown, as at this day; ywe have sin-
ned, we have done wickedly.

16 HO Lord, '^ according to all thy right-
eousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and
thy fury be turned away from thy city Jeru-
salem, *thy holy mountain: because for our
sins, •> and for the iniquities of our fathers,
"Jerusalem and thy people ^are become a
reproach to all that are about us.

17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the
prayer of thy servant, and his supplications,
^ and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanc-
tuary ''that is desolate, sfor the Lord's sake.

18 "^ O my God, incline thine ear, and
hear; open thine eyes, 'and behold our deso-
lations, and the city "^f which is called by thy
name : for we do not f present our supplica-
tions before thee for our righteousnesses, but
for thy great mercies.

19 O Lord, hear ; O Lord, forgive ; O.
Lord, hearken and do ; defer not, ' for thine
own sake, O my God : for thy city and thy
people are called by thy name.

20 H " And while I was speaking, and
praying, and confessing my sin, and the sin of
my people Israel, and presenting my suppli-
cation before the Lord my God for the holy
mountain of my God ;

21 Yea, while I was speaking in prayer,
even the man "Gabriel, whom I had seen in
the vision at the beginning, being caused to
fly t swiftly, "touched me p about the time of
the evening oblation.

22 And he informed me, and talked with
me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth
fto give thee skill and understanding.

23. At the beginning of thy supplications
the t commandment came forth, and "3 1 am
come to shew thee ; ' for thou art f greatly
beloved : therefore " understand the matter,
and consider the vision.

24 * Seventy weeks are determined upon
thy people and upon thy holy city, || to finish
the transgression, and {| to make an end of
sins, *and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
" and to bring in everlasting righteousness,
and to seal up the vision and f prophecy,
''and to anoint the Most Holy.

25 yKnow therefore and understand, that
from the going forth of the commandment
I to restore and to build Jerusalem unto " the

Messiah •> the Prince shall be seven weeks,
and threescore and two weeks: the street
t shall be built again, and the ||wall, "even
fin troublous times.


Daniel seeth a vision.

26 And after threescore and two weeks
^ shall Messiah be cut off, « ||but not for him-
self: II and ^the people of the prince that
shall come e shall destroy the city ^ and the
sanctuary ; ' and the end thereof shall he
''with a flood, and unto the end of the war
II desolations are determined.

27 And he shall confirm || • the covenant
with "many for one week: and in the. midst
of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and
the oblation to cease, || and for the over-
spreading of " abominations, he shall make it
desolate, ° even until the consummation, and

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 f long :
.and ^ he understood the thing, and had under-
standing of the vision.

2 In those days I Daniel was mourning
three tfull weeks.

3 I ate no t 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 si lifted up mine eyes, and looked,
and "^ behold fa 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,
P and the voice of his words like the voice of
a multitude,

7 And I Daniel i 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.

12 Then said he unto me, ^Fear not,

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

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 under-

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 e 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 he unto thee,- be strong, yea, be
strong. And when he had spoken unto- me,
I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord

than they all : and by his strength through
his riches, he shall stir up all against the
realm of Grecia.

3 And "=a mighty king shall stand up,
that shall rule with great dominion, and ■' do
according to his will.

4 And when he shall stand up, .« his king-
dom shall be broken, and shall be divided
toward the four winds of heaven; and not to
his posterity, ^ nor according to his dominion
which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be
plucked up, even for others besides those.

5 1 And the king of the south shall be
strong, and one of his princes ; and he shall
be strong above him, and have dominion ; his
dominion shall be a great dominion.

6 And in the end of years they t shall join
themselves together; for the king's daughter
of the south shall come to the king of the
north to make fan agreement : but she shall
not retain the power of the arm ; neither
shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be
given up, and they that brought her, and
II he that begat her, and he that strengthened
her in these times.

7 But out of a branch of her roots shall
one stand up || in his estate, which shall come
with an army, and shall enter into the for-
tress of the king of the north, and shall deal
against them, arid shall prevail :

8 And shall alsp carry captives into Egypt
their gods, with their princes, and with
t their precious vessels of silver and of gold;
and he shall continue more years than the
king of the north.

9 So the king of the south shall come
into his kingdom, and shall return into his
own land.

10 But his sons || shall be stirred up, and
shall assemble a multitude of great forces :
and one shall certainly come, sand overflow,
and pass through : || then shall he return, and
be stirred up, ^even to his fortress.

11 And the king of the south shall be
moved with choler, and shall come forth and
fight with him, even with the king of the
north : and he shall set forth a great multi-
tude ; but the multitude shall be given into
his hand.

12 And when he hath taken away the
multitude, his heart shall be lifted up ; and
he shall cast down many ten thousands : Jjut
he shall not be strengthened hy it.

13 For the king of the north, shall return,
and shall set forth a multitude greater than
the former, and shall certainly come t after
certain years with a great army and with
much riches.
