Daniel 10 (WEBP)

[1] In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the message was true, even a great warfare. He understood the message, and had understanding of the vision.
[2] In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three whole weeks.
[3] I ate no pleasant food. No meat or wine came into my mouth. I didn’t anoint myself at all, until three whole weeks were fulfilled.
[4] In the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel,§
[5] I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man clothed in linen, whose waist was adorned with pure gold of Uphaz.
[6] His body also was like beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as flaming torches. His arms and his feet were like burnished bronze. The voice of his words was like the voice of a multitude.
[7] I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me didn’t see the vision, but a great quaking fell on them, and they fled to hide themselves.
[8] So I was left alone and saw this great vision. No strength remained in me; for my face grew deathly pale, and I retained no strength.
[9] Yet I heard the voice of his words. When I heard the voice of his words, then I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face toward the ground.
[10] Behold, a hand touched me, which set me on my knees and on the palms of my hands.
[11] He said to me, “Daniel, you greatly beloved man, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have been sent to you, now.” When he had spoken this word to me, I stood trembling.
[12] Then he said to me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard. I have come for your words’ sake.
[13] But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me because I remained there with the kings of Persia.
[14] Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision is yet for many days.”
[15] When he had spoken these words to me, I set my face toward the ground and was mute.
[16] Behold, one in the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips. Then I opened my mouth, and spoke and said to him who stood before me, “My lord, by reason of the vision my sorrows have overtaken me, and I retain no strength.
[17] For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? For as for me, immediately there remained no strength in me. There was no breath left in me.”
[18] Then one like the appearance of a man touched me again, and he strengthened me.
[19] He said, “Greatly beloved man, don’t be afraid. Peace be to you. Be strong. Yes, be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”
[20] Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Now I will return to fight with the prince of Persia. When I go out, behold, the prince of Greece will come.
[21] But I will tell you that which is inscribed in the writing of truth. There is no one who holds with me against these but Michael your prince.

Daniel 10 (KJVS)

[1] In the third H7969 year H8141 of Cyrus H3566 king H4428 of Persia H6539 a thing H1697 was revealed H1540 (8738) unto Daniel H1840, whose name H8034 was called H7121 (8738) Belteshazzar H1095; and the thing H1697 [was] true H571, but the time appointed H6635 [was] long H1419: and he understood H995 (8804) the thing H1697, and had understanding H998 of the vision H4758.
[2] In those days H3117 I Daniel H1840 was mourning H56 (8693) three H7969 full H3117 weeks H7620.
[3] I ate H398 (8804) no pleasant H2532 bread H3899, neither came H935 (8804) flesh H1320 nor wine H3196 in my mouth H6310, neither did I anoint H5480 (8804) myself at all H5480 (8800), till three H7969 whole H3117 weeks H7620 were fulfilled H4390 (8800).
[4] And in the four H702 and twentieth H6242 day H3117 of the first H7223 month H2320, as I was by the side H3027 of the great H1419 river H5104, which [is] Hiddekel H2313;
[5] Then I lifted up H5375 (8799) mine eyes H5869, and looked H7200 (8799), and behold a certain H259 man H376 clothed H3847 (8803) in linen H906, whose loins H4975 [were] girded H2296 (8803) with fine gold H3800 of Uphaz H210:
[6] His body H1472 also [was] like the beryl H8658, and his face H6440 as the appearance H4758 of lightning H1300, and his eyes H5869 as lamps H3940 of fire H784, and his arms H2220 and his feet H4772 like in colour H5869 to polished H7044 brass H5178, and the voice H6963 of his words H1697 like the voice H6963 of a multitude H1995.
[7] And I Daniel H1840 alone saw H7200 (8804) the vision H4759: for the men H582 that were with me saw H7200 (8804) not the vision H4759; but H61 a great H1419 quaking H2731 fell H5307 (8804) upon them, so that they fled H1272 (8799) to hide H2244 (8736) themselves.
[8] Therefore I was left alone H7604 (8738), and saw H7200 (8799) this great H1419 vision H4759, and there remained H7604 (8738) no strength H3581 in me: for my comeliness H1935 was turned H2015 (8738) in me into corruption H4889, and I retained H6113 (8804) no strength H3581.
[9] Yet heard H8085 (8799) I the voice H6963 of his words H1697: and when I heard H8085 (8800) the voice H6963 of his words H1697, then was I in a deep sleep H7290 (8737) on my face H6440, and my face H6440 toward the ground H776.
[10] And, behold, an hand H3027 touched H5060 (8804) me, which set H5128 (8686) me upon my knees H1290 and [upon] the palms H3709 of my hands H3027.
[11] And he said H559 (8799) unto me, O Daniel H1840, a man H376 greatly beloved H2532, understand H995 (8685) the words H1697 that I speak H1696 (8802) unto thee, and stand H5975 (8798) upright H5977: for unto thee am I now sent H7971 (8795). And when he had spoken H1696 (8763) this word H1697 unto me, I stood H5975 (8804) trembling H7460 (8688).
[12] Then said H559 (8799) he unto me, Fear H3372 (8799) not, Daniel H1840: for from the first H7223 day H3117 that thou didst set H5414 (8804) thine heart H3820 to understand H995 (8687), and to chasten H6031 (8692) thyself before H6440 thy God H430, thy words H1697 were heard H8085 (8738), and I am come H935 (8804) for thy words H1697.
[13] But the prince H8269 of the kingdom H4438 of Persia H6539 withstood H5975 (8802) me one H259 and twenty H6242 days H3117: but, lo, Michael H4317, one H259 of the chief H7223 princes H8269, came H935 (8804) to help H5826 (8800) me; and I remained H3498 (8738) there with H681 the kings H4428 of Persia H6539.
[14] Now I am come H935 (8804) to make thee understand H995 (8687) what shall befall H7136 (8799) thy people H5971 in the latter H319 days H3117: for yet the vision H2377 [is] for [many] days H3117.
[15] And when he had spoken H1696 (8763) such words H1697 unto me, I set H5414 (8804) my face H6440 toward the ground H776, and I became dumb H481 (8738).
[16] And, behold, [one] like the similitude H1823 of the sons H1121 of men H120 touched H5060 (8802) my lips H8193: then I opened H6605 (8799) my mouth H6310, and spake H1696 (8762), and said H559 (8799) unto him that stood H5975 (8802) before me, O my lord H113, by the vision H4759 my sorrows H6735 are turned H2015 (8738) upon me, and I have retained H6113 (8804) no strength H3581.
[17] For how H1963 can H3201 (8799) the servant H5650 of this my lord H113 talk H1696 (8763) with this my lord H113? for as for me, straightway H6258 there remained H5975 (8799) no strength H3581 in me, neither is there breath H5397 left H7604 (8738) in me.
[18] Then there came again H3254 (8686) and touched H5060 (8799) me [one] like the appearance H4758 of a man H120, and he strengthened H2388 (8762) me,
[19] And said H559 (8799), O man H376 greatly beloved H2532, fear H3372 (8799) not: peace H7965 [be] unto thee, be strong H2388 (8798), yea, be strong H2388 (8798). And when he had spoken H1696 (8763) unto me, I was strengthened H2388 (8694), and said H559 (8799), Let my lord H113 speak H1696 (8762); for thou hast strengthened H2388 (8765) me.
[20] Then said H559 (8799) he, Knowest H3045 (8804) thou wherefore I come H935 (8804) unto thee? and now will I return H7725 (8799) to fight H3898 (8736) with the prince H8269 of Persia H6539: and when I am gone forth H3318 (8802), lo, the prince H8269 of Grecia H3120 shall come H935 (8804).
[21] But H61 I will shew H5046 (8686) thee that which is noted H7559 (8803) in the scripture H3791 of truth H571: and [there is] none H259 that holdeth H2388 (8693) with me in these things, but Michael H4317 your prince H8269.

Young’s Literal Translation

Daniel 10 (YLT)

[1] In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a thing is revealed to Daniel, whose name is called Belteshazzar, and the thing is true, and the warfare is great: and he hath understood the thing, and hath understanding about the appearance.
[2] ‘In those days, I, Daniel, have been mourning three weeks of days;
[3] desirable bread I have not eaten, and flesh and wine hath not come in unto my mouth, and I have not anointed myself at all, till the completion of three weeks of days.
[4] ‘And in the twenty and fourth day of the first month, I have been by the side of the great river, that is Hiddekel:
[5] and I lift up mine eyes, and look, and lo, a certain one clothed in linen, and his loins girt with pure gold of Uphaz,
[6] and his body as a beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet as the aspect of bright brass, and the voice of his words as the voice of a multitude.
[7] ‘And I have seen-I, Daniel, by myself-the appearance: and the men who have been with me have not seen the appearance, but a great trembling hath fallen on them, and they flee to be hidden;
[8] and I have been left by myself, and I see this great appearance, and there hath been no power left in me, and my honour hath been turned in me to corruption, yea, I have not retained power.
[9] ‘And I hear the voice of his words, and when I hear the voice of his words, then I have been in a trance on my face, and my face is to the earth;
[10] and lo, a hand hath come against me, and shaketh me on my knees and the palms of my hands.
[11] ‘And he saith unto me: Daniel, man greatly desired, attend to the words that I am speaking unto thee, and stand on thy station, for now I have been sent unto thee. ‘And when he speaketh with me this word, I have stood trembling.
[12] And he saith unto me: Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that thou didst give thy heart to understand, and to humble thyself before thy God, thy words have been heard, and I have come because of thy words.
[13] ‘And the head of the kingdom of Persia is standing over-against me twenty and one days, and lo, Michael, first of the chief heads, hath come in to help me, and I have remained there near the kings of Persia;
[14] and I have come to cause thee to understand that which doth happen to thy people in the latter end of the days, for yet the vision is after days.
[15] ‘And when he speaketh with me about these things, I have set my face toward the earth, and have been silent;
[16] and lo, as the manner of the sons of men, he is striking against my lips, and I open my mouth, and I speak, and say unto him who is standing over-against me: My lord, by the appearance turned have been my pangs against me, and I have retained no power.
[17] And how is the servant of this my lord able to speak with this my lord? as for me, henceforth there remaineth in me no power, yea, breath hath not been left in me.
[18] ‘And he addeth, and striketh against me, as the appearance of a man, and strengtheneth me,
[19] and he saith: Do not fear, O man greatly desired, peace to thee, be strong, yea, be strong; and when he speaketh with me, I have strengthened myself, and I say, Let my lord speak, for thou hast strengthened me.
[20] And he saith, Hast thou known why I have come unto thee? and now I turn back to fight with the head of Persia; yea, I am going forth, and lo, the head of Javan hath come;
[21] but I declare to thee that which is noted down in the Writing of Truth, and there is not one strengthening himself with me, concerning these, except Michael your head.
