The Book of Daniel of the Christian Holy Bible

Daniel 1:1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of  Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto  Jerusalem, and besieged it. 

Daniel 1:2 And the Lord gave  Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the  vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land  of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels  into the treasure house of his god.  

Daniel 1:3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his  eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of  Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; 

Daniel 1:4  Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and  skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and  understanding science, and such as had ability in them to  stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the  learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. 

Daniel 1:5 And the  king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat,  and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three  years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the  king. 
Daniel 1:6 Now among these were of the children of Judah,  Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: 
Daniel 1:7 Unto whom  the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto  Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of  Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of  Abed-nego.  
Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not  defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with  the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the  prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. 
Daniel 1:9  Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love  with the prince of the eunuchs. 
Daniel 1:10 And the prince of the  eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath  appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see  your faces worse liking than the children which are of  your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the  king. 
Daniel 1:11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince  of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and  Azariah, 
Daniel 1:12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten  days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.  

Holy Bible



Daniel 1:13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before  thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the  portion of the king’s meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy  servants. 
Daniel 1:14 So he consented to them in this matter, and  proved them ten days. 
Daniel 1:15 And at the end of ten days  their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than  all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat.  
Daniel 1:16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat,  and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.  
Daniel 1:17 As for these four children, God gave them  knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel  had understanding in all visions and dreams. 
Daniel 1:18 Now at  the end of the days that the king had said he should bring  them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in  before Nebuchadnezzar. 
Daniel 1:19 And the king communed  with them; and among them all was found none like 
Daniel,  Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they  before the king. 
Daniel 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom and  understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found  them ten times better than all the magicians and  astrologers that were in all his realm. 
Daniel 1:21 And Daniel  continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.  
Daniel 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of  Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams,  wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from  him. 
Daniel 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians,  and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans,  for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood  before the king. 
Daniel 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have  dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the  dream. 
Daniel 2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in  Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream,  and we will shew the interpretation. 
Daniel 2:5 The king  answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from  me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the  interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your  houses shall be made a dunghill. 
Daniel 2:6 But if ye shew the  dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me  gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the  dream, and the interpretation thereof. 
Daniel 2:7 They answered  again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and  we will shew the interpretation of it. 
Daniel 2:8 The king  answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain  the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me. 
Daniel 2:9  But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is  but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and  corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed:  therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can  shew me the interpretation thereof.   
Daniel 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said,  There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king’s  matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that  asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or  Chaldean. 
Daniel 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king  requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the  king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.  
Daniel 2:12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious,  and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.  
Daniel 2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise men  should be slain; and they sought 
Daniel and his fellows to  be slain.  
Daniel 2:14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to  Arioch the captain of the king’s guard, which was gone  forth to slay the wise men of Babylon: 
Daniel 2:15 He  answered and said to Arioch the king’s captain, Why is  the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the  thing known to Daniel. 
Daniel 2:16 Then Daniel went in, and  desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he  would shew the king the interpretation. 
Daniel 2:17 Then 
Daniel  went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah,  Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: 
Daniel 2:18 That they  would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this  secret; that 
Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the  rest of the wise men of Babylon.  
Daniel 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a  night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.  
Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of  God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:  
Daniel 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he  removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom  unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know  understanding: 
Daniel 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret  things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light  dwelleth with him. 
Daniel 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O  thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and  might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired  of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s  matter.  
Daniel 2:24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the  king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he  went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of  Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto  the king the interpretation. 
Daniel 2:25 Then Arioch brought in  Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I  have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make  known unto the king the interpretation. 
Daniel 2:26 The king  answered and said to Daniel, whose name was  Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the  dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?  
Daniel 2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and  said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the  wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers,  shew unto the king; 
Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven  that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king  Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream,  and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these; 
Daniel 2:29  As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon  thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that  revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to  pass. 
Daniel 2:30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me  for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for  their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the  king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.  
Daniel 2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image.  This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood  before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. 
Daniel 2:32 This  image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of  silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 
Daniel 2:33 His legs of  iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 
Daniel 2:34 Thou  sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which  smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay,  and brake them to pieces. 
Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the  clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces  together, and became like the chaff of the summer  threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no  place was found for them: and the stone that smote the  image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.  
Daniel 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the  interpretation thereof before the king. 
Daniel 2:37 Thou, O king,  art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee  a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 
Daniel 2:38 And  wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the  field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine  hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this  head of gold. 
Daniel 2:39 And after thee shall arise another  kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of  brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. 
Daniel 2:40 And  the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as  iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron  that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.  
Daniel 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of  potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided;  but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch  as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 
Daniel 2:42 And  as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay,  so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.  
Daniel 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay,  they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they  shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed  with clay. 
Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the  God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be  destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people,  but it shall break in pieces and consume all these  kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 
Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as  thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain  without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass,  the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made  known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and  the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.   
Daniel 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face,  and worshipped 
Daniel, and commanded that they should  offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him. 
Daniel 2:47 The  king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that  your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a  revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldst reveal this secret.  
Daniel 2:48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave  him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole  province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the  wise men of Babylon. 
Daniel 2:49 Then Daniel requested of  the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego,  over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat  in the gate of the king.  
Daniel 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold,  whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth  thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the  province of Babylon. 
Daniel 3:2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king  sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the  captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the  sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the  dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had  set up. 
Daniel 3:3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains,  the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and  all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto  the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king  had set up; and they stood before the image that  Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 
Daniel 3:4 Then an herald cried  aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and  languages, 
Daniel 3:5 That at what time ye hear the sound of  the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all  kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image  that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: 
Daniel 3:6 And whoso  falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be  cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 
Daniel 3:7  Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound  of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of  musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell  down and worshipped the golden image that  Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.  
Daniel 3:8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came  near, and accused the Jews. 
Daniel 3:9 They spake and said to  the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever. 
Daniel 3:10  Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall  hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery,  and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and  worship the golden image: 
Daniel 3:11 And whoso falleth not  down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the  midst of a burning fiery furnace. 
Daniel 3:12 There are certain  Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of  Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O  king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor  worship the golden image which thou hast set up.  
Daniel 3:13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury  commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.  Then they brought these men before the king. 
Daniel 3:14  Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye serve my  gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?  
Daniel 3:15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the  sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and  dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship    Page 515 
Daniel   the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not,  ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning  fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you  out of my hands? 
Daniel 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,  answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we  are not careful to answer thee in this matter. 
Daniel 3:17 If it be  so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the  burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine  hand, O king. 
Daniel 3:18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O  king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the  golden image which thou hast set up.   
Daniel 3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the  form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach,  and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that  they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it  was wont to be heated. 
Daniel 3:20 And he commanded the most  mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach,  Meshach, and Abed-nego, and to cast them into the  burning fiery furnace. 
Daniel 3:21 Then these men were bound  in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other  garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery  furnace. 
Daniel 3:22 Therefore because the king’s  commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot,  the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach,  Meshach, and Abed- nego. 
Daniel 3:23 And these three men,  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into  the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 
Daniel 3:24 Then  Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in  haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we  cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They  answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 
Daniel 3:25 He  answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the  midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the  fourth is like the Son of God.  
Daniel 3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of  the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach,  Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God,  come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach,  and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire. 
Daniel 3:27  And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s  counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon  whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their  head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell  of fire had passed on them. 
Daniel 3:28 Then Nebuchadnezzar  spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach,  Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and  delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed  the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might  not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.  
Daniel 3:29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people,  nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against  the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, shall be cut  in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill:  because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.  
Daniel 3:30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and  Abed-nego, in the province of Babylon.  
Daniel 4:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations,  and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be  multiplied unto you. 
Daniel 4:2 I thought it good to shew the  signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward  me. 
Daniel 4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are  his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and  his dominion is from generation to generation.  
Daniel 4:4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and  flourishing in my palace: 
Daniel 4:5 I saw a dream which made  me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of  my head troubled me. 
Daniel 4:6 Therefore made I a decree to  bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they  might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream.   
Daniel 4:7 Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the  Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before  them; but they did not make known unto me the  interpretation thereof.  
Daniel 4:8 But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose  name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god,  and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I  told the dream, saying, 
Daniel 4:9 O Belteshazzar, master of  the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy  gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the  visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation  thereof. 
Daniel 4:10 Thus were the visions of mine head in my  bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and  the height thereof was great. 
Daniel 4:11 The tree grew, and  was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and  the sight thereof to the end of all the earth: 
Daniel 4:12 The  leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in  it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow  under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs  thereof, and all flesh was fed of it. 
Daniel 4:13 I saw in the  visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher  and an holy one came down from heaven; 
Daniel 4:14 He cried  aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his  branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the  beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his  branches: 
Daniel 4:15 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots  in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the  tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of  heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass  of the earth: 
Daniel 4:16 Let his heart be changed from man’s,  and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven  times pass over him. 
Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree  of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy  ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most  High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to  whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of  men. 
Daniel 4:18 This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen.  Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation  thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are  not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou  art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.  
Daniel 4:19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was  astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The  king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the  interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered  and said, My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and  the interpretation thereof to thine enemies. 
Daniel 4:20 The tree  that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height  reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the  earth; 
Daniel 4:21 Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof  much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of  the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the  heaven had their habitation: 
Daniel 4:22 It is thou, O king, that  art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown,  and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of  the earth. 
Daniel 4:23 And whereas the king saw a watcher and  an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew  the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the  roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and  brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with  the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts  of the field, till seven times pass over him; 
Daniel 4:24 This is  the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king: 
Daniel 4:25  That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall  be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to  eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of  heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know  that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth  it to whomsoever he will. 
Daniel 4:26 And whereas they  commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy  kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have  known that the heavens do rule. 
Daniel 4:27 Wherefore, O king,  let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy  sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing  mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy  tranquility.   
Daniel 4:28 All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.  
Daniel 4:29 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace  of the kingdom of Babylon. 
Daniel 4:30 The king spake, and  said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house  of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the  honour of my majesty? 
Daniel 4:31 While the word was in the  king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O  king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is  departed from thee. 
Daniel 4:32 And they shall drive thee from  men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field:  they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times  shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High  ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever  he will. 
Daniel 4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon  Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat  grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of  heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles feathers, and  his nails like birds’ claws. 
Daniel 4:34 And at the end of the  days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven,  and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the  most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for  ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his  kingdom is from generation to generation: 
Daniel 4:35 And all  the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he  doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and  among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his  hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? 
Daniel 4:36 At the same  time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my  kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me;  and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was  established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was  added unto me. 
Daniel 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and  extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are  truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride  he is able to abase.  
Daniel 5:1 Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand  of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand. 
Daniel 5:2  Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring  the golden and silver vessels which his father  Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in  Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his  concubines, might drink therein. 
Daniel 5:3 Then they brought  the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the  house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and  his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.  
Daniel 5:4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of  silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.  
Daniel 5:5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s  hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the  plaister of the wall of the king’s palace: and the king saw  the part of the hand that wrote. 
Daniel 5:6 Then the king’s  countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so  that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote  one against another. 
Daniel 5:7 The king cried aloud to bring in  the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And  the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon,  Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the  interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and  have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third  ruler in the kingdom. 
Daniel 5:8 Then came in all the king’s wise  men: but they could not read the writing, nor make known  to the king the interpretation thereof. 
Daniel 5:9 Then was king  Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his countenance was  changed in him, and his lords were astonied.   
Daniel 5:10 Now the queen, by reason of the words of the  king and his lords, came into the banquet house: and the  queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy  thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed:  
Daniel 5:11 There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the  spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light  and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the  gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar  thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the  magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers;  
Daniel 5:12 Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge,  and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of  hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the  same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let  Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation. 
Daniel 5:13  Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king  spake and said unto 
Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which  art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the  king my father brought out of Jewry? 
Daniel 5:14 I have even  heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and  that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is  found in thee. 
Daniel 5:15 And now the wise men, the  astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they  should read this writing, and make known unto me the  interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the  interpretation of the thing: 
Daniel 5:16 And I have heard of thee,  that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts:  now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me  the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet,  and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the  third ruler in the kingdom.  
Daniel 5:17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king,  Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another;  yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to  him the interpretation. 
Daniel 5:18 O thou king, the most high  God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and  majesty, and glory, and honour: 
Daniel 5:19 And for the majesty  that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages,  trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew;  and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he  set up; and whom he would he put down. 
Daniel 5:20 But when  his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he  was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory  from him: 
Daniel 5:21 And he was driven from the sons of men;  and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling  was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen,  and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew  that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and  that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will. 
Daniel 5:22  And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine  heart, though thou knewest all this; 
Daniel 5:23 But hast lifted up  thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought  the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords,  thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them;  and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass,    Page 517 
Daniel   iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know:  and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are  all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: 
Daniel 5:24 Then was the  part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.   
Daniel 5:25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE,  MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. 
Daniel 5:26 This is the  interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy  kingdom, and finished it. 
Daniel 5:27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed  in the balances, and art found wanting. 
Daniel 5:28 PERES; Thy  kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.  
Daniel 5:29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed  Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck,  and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be  the third ruler in the kingdom.  
Daniel 5:30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the  Chaldeans slain. 
Daniel 5:31 And Darius the Median took the  kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.  
Daniel 6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an  hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the  whole kingdom; 
Daniel 6:2 And over these three presidents; of  whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give  accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.  
Daniel 6:3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents  and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and  the king thought to set him over the whole realm.  
Daniel 6:4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find  occasion against 
Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they  could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was  faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.  
Daniel 6:5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion  against this Daniel, except we find it against him  concerning the law of his God. 
Daniel 6:6 Then these presidents  and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus  unto him, King Darius, live for ever. 
Daniel 6:7 All the  presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes,  the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to  establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that  whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty  days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of  lions. 
Daniel 6:8 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the  writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the  Medes and Persians, which altereth not. 
Daniel 6:9 Wherefore  king Darius signed the writing and the decree.  

Daniel 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was  signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open  in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees  three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his  God, as he did aforetime. 
Daniel 6:11 Then these men  assembled, and found Daniel praying and making  supplication before his God. 
Daniel 6:12 Then they came near,  and spake before the king concerning the king’s decree;  Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask  a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of  thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king  answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of  the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. 
Daniel 6:13 Then  answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which  is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not  thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but  maketh his petition three times a day. 
Daniel 6:14 Then the king,  when he heard these words, was sore displeased with  himself, and set his heart on 
Daniel to deliver him: and he  laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.  
Daniel 6:15 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said  unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and  Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king  establisheth may be changed. 
Daniel 6:16 Then the king  commanded, and they brought 
Daniel, and cast him into  the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel,  Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver  thee. 
Daniel 6:17 And a stone was brought and laid upon the  mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet,  and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not  be changed concerning Daniel.   
Daniel 6:18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the  night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought  before him: and his sleep went from him. 
Daniel 6:19 Then the  king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto  the den of lions. 
Daniel 6:20 And when he came to the den, he  cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king  spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living  God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to  deliver thee from the lions? 
Daniel 6:21 Then said Daniel unto  the king, O king, live for ever. 
Daniel 6:22 My God hath sent his  angel, and hath shut the lions mouths, that they have not  hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in  me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.  
Daniel 6:23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and  commanded that they should take 
Daniel up out of the den.  So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of  hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.  
Daniel 6:24 And the king commanded, and they brought those  men which had accused 
Daniel, and they cast them into  the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and  the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones  in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.  
Daniel 6:25 Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations,  and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be  multiplied unto you. 
Daniel 6:26 I make a decree, That in every  dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the  God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for  ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed,  and his dominion shall be even unto the end. 
Daniel 6:27 He  delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders  in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the  power of the lions. 
Daniel 6:28 So this Daniel prospered in the  reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.  
Daniel 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon  Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed:  then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters.  
Daniel 7:2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night,  and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the  great sea. 
Daniel 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea,  diverse one from another. 
Daniel 7:4 The first was like a lion,  and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were  plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand  upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.  
Daniel 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear,  and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in  the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus  unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. 
Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld,  and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it  four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and  dominion was given to it. 
Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night  visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and  strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured  and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of  it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before  it; and it had ten horns. 
Daniel 7:8 I considered the horns, and,  behold, there came up among them another little horn,  before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up  by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the  eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.   
Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the  Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as  snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne  was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.  
Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before  him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten  thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment  was set, and the books were opened. 
Daniel 7:11 I beheld then  because of the voice of the great words which the horn  spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body  destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 
Daniel 7:12 As  concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion  taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and  time. 
Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one  like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and  came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near  before him. 
Daniel 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and  glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and  languages, should serve him: his dominion is an  everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his  kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.  
Daniel 7:15 I 
Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of  my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. 
Daniel 7:16  I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him  the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the  interpretation of the things. 
Daniel 7:17 These great beasts,  which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of  the earth. 
Daniel 7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take  the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for  ever and ever. 
Daniel 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the  fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others,  exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails  of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped  the residue with his feet; 
Daniel 7:20 And of the ten horns that  were in his head, and of the other which came up, and  before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes,  and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was  more stout than his fellows. 
Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same  horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;  
Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was  given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that  the saints possessed the kingdom. 
Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The  fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which  shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the  whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.  
Daniel 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten  kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and  he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three  kings. 
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the  most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High,  and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given  into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.  
Daniel 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away  his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.  
Daniel 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness  of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to  the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom  is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve  and obey him. 
Daniel 7:28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As  for me 
Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my  countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my  heart.  
Daniel 8:1 In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a  vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that  which appeared unto me at the first. 
Daniel 8:2 And I saw in a  vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at  Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam;  and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai. 
Daniel 8:3  Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there  stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the  two horns were high; but one was higher than the  other, and the higher came up last. 
Daniel 8:4 I saw the ram  pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that  no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any  that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to  his will, and became great. 
Daniel 8:5 And as I was considering,  behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the  whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had  a notable horn between his eyes. 
Daniel 8:6 And he came to the  ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before  the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. 
Daniel 8:7  And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved  with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his  two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand  before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and  stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver  the ram out of his hand. 
Daniel 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed  very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was  broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four  winds of heaven. 
Daniel 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a  little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south,  and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 
Daniel 8:10  And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast  down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and  stamped upon them. 
Daniel 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself  even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily  sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary  was cast down. 
Daniel 8:12 And an host was given him against  the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast  down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.  
Daniel 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint  said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall  be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the  transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and  the host to be trodden under foot? 
Daniel 8:14 And he said unto  me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall  the sanctuary be cleansed.  
Daniel 8:15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had  seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold,  there stood before me as the appearance of a man. 
Daniel 8:16  And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai,  which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to  understand the vision. 
Daniel 8:17 So he came near where I  stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my  face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at  the time of the end shall be the vision. 
Daniel 8:18 Now as he  was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face  toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.  
Daniel 8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what  shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time  appointed the end shall be. 
Daniel 8:20 The ram which thou  sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and  Persia. 
Daniel 8:21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia:  and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first  king. 
Daniel 8:22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up  for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not  in his power. 
Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom,  when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce  countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand    Page 519 
Daniel   up. 
Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his  own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall  prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the  holy people. 
Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall  cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify  himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he  shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall  be broken without hand. 
Daniel 8:26 And the vision of the  evening and the morning which was told is true:  wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many  days. 
Daniel 8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain  days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I  was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.   
Daniel 9:1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of  the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm  of the Chaldeans; 
Daniel 9:2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel  understood by books the number of the years, whereof the  word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he  would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of  Jerusalem.   
Daniel 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by  prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and  ashes: 
Daniel 9:4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and  made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and  dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that  love him, and to them that keep his commandments; 
Daniel 9:5  We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have  done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from  thy precepts and from thy judgments: 
Daniel 9:6 Neither have  we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake  in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to  all the people of the land. 
Daniel 9:7 O Lord, righteousness  belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at  this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of  Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are  far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven  them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed  against thee. 
Daniel 9:8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of  face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because  we have sinned against thee. 
Daniel 9:9 To the Lord our God  belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have  rebelled against him; 
Daniel 9:10 Neither have we obeyed the  voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he  set before us by his servants the prophets. 
Daniel 9:11 Yea, all  Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that  they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured  upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses  the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.  
Daniel 9:12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake  against us, and against our judges that judged us, by  bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven  hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.  
Daniel 9:13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is  come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the  LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and  understand thy truth. 
Daniel 9:14 Therefore hath the LORD  watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the  LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he  doeth: for we obeyed not his voice. 
Daniel 9:15 And now, O  Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the  land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee  renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done  wickedly.  
Daniel 9:16 O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I  beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away  from thy city Jerusalem, 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.   
Daniel 9:17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy  servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine  upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.  
Daniel 9:18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine  eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is  called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications  before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great  mercies. 
Daniel 9:19 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.  
Daniel 9:20 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and  confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and  presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for  the holy mountain of my God; 
Daniel 9:21 Yea, whiles I was  speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen  in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly,  touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 
Daniel 9:22  And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O  Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and  understanding. 
Daniel 9:23 At the beginning of thy supplications  the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew  thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand  the matter, and consider the vision. 
Daniel 9:24 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 prophecy, and  to anoint the most Holy. 
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and  understand, that from the going forth of the commandment  to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the  Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two  weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in  troublous times. 
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks  shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people  of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the  sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and  unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 
Daniel 9:27  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 overspreading of  abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the  consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon  the desolate.  
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 10:2 In those days I Daniel  was mourning three full weeks. 
Daniel 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.  
Daniel 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;  
Daniel 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: 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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    
Daniel Page 520   no strength. 
Daniel 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.   
Daniel 10:10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me  upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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.  
Daniel 10:15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set  my face toward the ground, and I became dumb. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 10:18 Then there came again and touched me one  like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,  
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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. 
Daniel 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.  
Daniel 11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even  I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him. 
Daniel 11:2 And now  will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet  three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than  they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir  up all against the realm of Grecia. 
Daniel 11:3 And a mighty  king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and  do according to his will. 
Daniel 11:4 And when he shall stand  up, his kingdom 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 beside those.  
Daniel 11:5 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.  
Daniel 11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves  together; for the king’s daughter of the south shall come to  the king of the north to make an 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 he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these  times. 
Daniel 11:7 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 fortress of the king of the north, and  shall deal against them, and shall prevail: 
Daniel 11:8 And shall  also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes,  and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and  he shall continue more years than the king of the north.   
Daniel 11:9 So the king of the south shall come into his  kingdom, and shall return into his own land. 
Daniel 11:10 But  his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude  of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and  overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be  stirred up, even to his fortress. 
Daniel 11:11 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 multitude; but the multitude shall be  given into his hand. 
Daniel 11:12 And when he hath taken  away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall  cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be  strengthened by it.
