Daniel 10


Dan 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar; and the message was true and one of great conflict, but he understood the message and had an understanding of the vision.
Dan 10:2 In those days, I, Daniel, had been mourning for three entire weeks.
Dan 10:3 I did not eat any tasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed.
Dan 10:4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great river, that is, the Tigris,
Dan 10:5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz.
Dan 10:6 His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his 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 tumult.
Dan 10:7 Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves.
Dan 10:8 So I was left alone and saw this great vision; yet no strength was left in me, for my natural color turned to a deathly pallor, and I retained no strength.
Dan 10:9 But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.
Dan 10:10 Then behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.
Dan 10:11 He said to me," O Daniel, man of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling.
Dan 10:12 Then he said to me," Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words.
Dan 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.
Dan 10:14 Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future."
Dan 10:15 When he had spoken to me according to these words, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless.
Dan 10:16 And behold, one who resembled a human being was touching my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke and said to him who was standing before me," O my lord, as a result of the vision anguish has come upon me, and I have retained no strength.
Dan 10:17 For how can such a servant of my lord talk with such as my lord? As for me, there remains just now no strength in me, nor has any breath been left in me."
Dan 10:18 Then this one with human appearance touched me again and strengthened me.
Dan 10:19 He said," O man of high esteem, do not be afraid. Peace be with you; take courage and be courageous!" Now as soon as he spoke to me, I received strength and said," May my lord speak, for you have strengthened me."
Dan 10:20 Then he said," Do you understand why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come.
Dan 10:21 However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. Yet there is no one who stands firmly with me against these forces except Michael your prince.

Dan 10:1 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. (kjv) Dan 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar; and the message was true and one of great conflict, but he understood the message and had an understanding of the vision. Dan 10:1 ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ πρώτῳ Κύρου τοῦ βασιλέως Περσῶν πρόσταγμα ἐδείχθη τῷ Δανιηλ ὃς ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα Βαλτασαρ καὶ ἀληθὲς τὸ ὅραμα καὶ τὸ πρόσταγμα καὶ τὸ πλῆθος τὸ ἰσχυρὸν διανοηθήσεται τὸ πρόσταγμα καὶ διενοήθην αὐτὸ ἐν ὁράματι
Dan 10:2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. (kjv) Dan 10:2 In those days, I, Daniel, had been mourning for three entire weeks. Dan 10:2 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐγὼ Δανιηλ ἤμην πενθῶν τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας
Dan 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. (kjv) Dan 10:3 I did not eat any tasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed. Dan 10:3 ἄρτον ἐπιθυμιῶν οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ κρέας καὶ οἶνος οὐκ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ στόμα μου ἔλαιον οὐκ ἠλειψάμην ἕως τοῦ συντελέσαι με τὰς τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας τῶν ἡμερῶν
Dan 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; (kjv) Dan 10:4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great river, that is, the Tigris, Dan 10:4 καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τετάρτῃ καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου καὶ ἐγὼ ἤμην ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου ὅς ἐστι Τίγρης
Dan 10:5 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: (kjv) Dan 10:5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz. Dan 10:5 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος εἷς ἐνδεδυμένος βύσσινα καὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν περιεζωσμένος βυσσίνῳ καὶ ἐκ μέσου αὐτοῦ φῶς
Dan 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 colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. (kjv) Dan 10:6 His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his 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 tumult. Dan 10:6 καὶ τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ θαρσις καὶ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ ὅρασις ἀστραπῆς καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ λαμπάδες πυρός καὶ οἱ βραχίονες αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ πόδες ὡσεὶ χαλκὸς ἐξαστράπτων καὶ φωνὴ λαλιᾶς αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ φωνὴ θορύβου
Dan 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. (kjv) Dan 10:7 Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves. Dan 10:7 καὶ εἶδον ἐγὼ Δανιηλ τὴν ὅρασιν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην καὶ οἱ ἄνθρωποι οἱ ὄντες μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ οὐκ εἴδοσαν τὴν ὅρασιν ταύτην καὶ φόβος ἰσχυρὸς ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς καὶ ἀπέδρασαν ἐν σπουδῇ
Dan 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. (kjv) Dan 10:8 So I was left alone and saw this great vision; yet no strength was left in me, for my natural color turned to a deathly pallor, and I retained no strength. Dan 10:8 καὶ ἐγὼ κατελείφθην μόνος καὶ εἶδον τὴν ὅρασιν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην καὶ οὐκ ἐγκατελείφθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς καὶ ἰδοὺ πνεῦμα ἐπεστράφη ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ εἰς φθοράν καὶ οὐ κατίσχυσα
Dan 10:9 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. (kjv) Dan 10:9 But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground. Dan 10:9 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν λαλιᾶς αὐτοῦ ἐγὼ ἤμην πεπτωκὼς ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν
Dan 10:10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. (kjv) Dan 10:10 Then behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. Dan 10:10 καὶ ἰδοὺ χεῖρα προσήγαγέ μοι καὶ ἤγειρέ με ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων ἐπὶ τὰ ἴχνη τῶν ποδῶν μου
Dan 10:11 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. (kjv) Dan 10:11 He said to me," O Daniel, man of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Dan 10:11 καὶ εἶπέν μοι Δανιηλ ἄνθρωπος ἐλεεινὸς εἶ διανοήθητι τοῖς προστάγμασιν οἷς ἐγὼ λαλῶ ἐπὶ σέ καὶ στῆθι ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου σου ἄρτι γὰρ ἀπεστάλην ἐπὶ σέ καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ τὸ πρόσταγμα τοῦτο ἔστην τρέμων
Dan 10:12 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. (kjv) Dan 10:12 Then he said to me," Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. Dan 10:12 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με μὴ φοβοῦ Δανιηλ ὅτι ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς πρώτης ἧς ἔδωκας τὸ πρόσωπόν σου διανοηθῆναι καὶ ταπεινωθῆναι ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου εἰσηκούσθη τὸ ῥῆμά σου καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσῆλθον ἐν τῷ ῥήματί σου
Dan 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. (kjv) Dan 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Dan 10:13 καὶ ὁ στρατηγὸς βασιλέως Περσῶν ἀνθειστήκει ἐναντίον μου εἴκοσι καὶ μίαν ἡμέραν καὶ ἰδοὺ Μιχαηλ εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν πρώτων ἐπῆλθε βοηθῆσαί μοι καὶ αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ κατέλιπον μετὰ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ τοῦ βασιλέως Περσῶν
Dan 10:14 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. (kjv) Dan 10:14 Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future." Dan 10:14 καὶ εἶπέν μοι ἦλθον ὑποδεῖξαί σοι τί ὑπαντήσεται τῷ λαῷ σου ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν ἔτι γὰρ ὅρασις εἰς ἡμέρας
Dan 10:15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb. (kjv) Dan 10:15 When he had spoken to me according to these words, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless. Dan 10:15 καὶ ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν λαλῆσαι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ τὰ προστάγματα ταῦτα ἔδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐσιώπησα
Dan 10:16 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. (kjv) Dan 10:16 And behold, one who resembled a human being was touching my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke and said to him who was standing before me," O my lord, as a result of the vision anguish has come upon me, and I have retained no strength. Dan 10:16 καὶ ἰδοὺ ὡς ὁμοίωσις χειρὸς ἀνθρώπου ἥψατό μου τῶν χειλέων καὶ ἤνοιξα τὸ στόμα μου καὶ ἐλάλησα καὶ εἶπα τῷ ἑστηκότι ἀπέναντί μου κύριε καὶ ὡς ὅρασις ἀπεστράφη ἐπὶ τὸ πλευρόν μου ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς
Dan 10:17 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. (kjv) Dan 10:17 For how can such a servant of my lord talk with such as my lord? As for me, there remains just now no strength in me, nor has any breath been left in me." Dan 10:17 καὶ πῶς δυνήσεται ὁ παῖς λαλῆσαι μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγὼ ἠσθένησα καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς καὶ πνεῦμα οὐ κατελείφθη ἐν ἐμοί
Dan 10:18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, (kjv) Dan 10:18 Then this one with human appearance touched me again and strengthened me. Dan 10:18 καὶ προσέθηκε καὶ ἥψατό μου ὡς ὅρασις ἀνθρώπου καὶ κατίσχυσέ με
Dan 10:19 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. (kjv) Dan 10:19 He said," O man of high esteem, do not be afraid. Peace be with you; take courage and be courageous!" Now as soon as he spoke to me, I received strength and said," May my lord speak, for you have strengthened me." Dan 10:19 καὶ εἶπέ μοι ἄνθρωπος ἐλεεινὸς εἶ μὴ φοβοῦ ὑγίαινε ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἴσχυσα καὶ εἶπα λαλησάτω ὁ κύριός μου ὅτι ἐνίσχυσέ με
Dan 10:20 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. (kjv) Dan 10:20 Then he said," Do you understand why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come. Dan 10:20 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με γινώσκεις τί ἦλθον πρὸς σέ καὶ νῦν ἐπιστρέψω διαμάχεσθαι μετὰ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ βασιλέως τῶν Περσῶν καὶ ἐγὼ ἐξεπορευόμην καὶ ἰδοὺ στρατηγὸς Ἑλλήνων εἰσεπορεύετο
Dan 10:21 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.(kjv) Dan 10:21 However, I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth. Yet there is no one who stands firmly with me against these forces except Michael your prince. Dan 10:21 καὶ μάλα ὑποδείξω σοι τὰ πρῶτα ἐν ἀπογραφῇ ἀληθείας καὶ οὐθεὶς ἦν ὁ βοηθῶν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ὑπὲρ τούτων ἀλλ᾽ ἢ Μιχαηλ ὁ ἄγγελος
