Daniel 10


10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a thing was
 revealed to 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.
10:2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.
10:3 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.
10:4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I
 was by the side of the great river, which [is] Hiddekel;
10:5 Then I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold a certain
 man clothed in linen, whose loins [were] girded with fine gold
 of Uphaz:
10:6 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 color to polished brass, and the
 voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
10:7 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.
10:8 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.
10:9 Yet I heard the voice of his words: and when I heard the
 voice of his words, then I was in a deep sleep on my face, and
 my face toward the ground.
10:10 And behold, a hand touched me, which set me upon my knees
 and [upon] the palms of my hands.
10:11 And he said to me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved,
 understand the words that I speak to thee, and stand upright:
 for to thee I am now sent. And when he had spoken this word to
 me, I stood trembling.
10:12 Then said he to me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first
 day that thou didst set thy heart to understand, and to chasten
 thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for
 thy words.
10:13 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.
10:14 Now I have come to make thee understand what shall befall
 thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision [is] for many
 days.
10:15 And when he had spoken such words to me, I set my face
 towards the ground, and I became dumb.
10:16 And behold, [one] like the similitude of the sons of men
 touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spoke, and said to
 him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows
 are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
10:17 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, neither is there breath left in me.
10:18 Then there came again and touched me [one] like the
 appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,
10:19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace [be] to
 thee, be strong, yes, be strong. And when he had spoken to me,
 I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast
 strengthened me.
10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou for what cause I come to 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.
10:21 But I will show 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.
