1 H259 In the first H8141 year H1867 of Darius H1121 the son H325 of Ahasuerus, H2233 of the seed H4074 of the Medes, H4427 [H8717] who was made king H4438 over the realm H3778 of the Chaldeans;
2 H259 In the first H8141 year H4427 [H8800] of his reign H1840 I Daniel H995 [H8804] understood H5612 by books H4557 the number H8141 of the years, H1697 concerning which the word H3068 of the LORD H3414 came to Jeremiah H5030 the prophet, H4390 [H8763] that he would accomplish H7657 seventy H8141 years H2723 in the dryness H3389 of Jerusalem.
3 H5414 [H8799] And I set H6440 my face H136 to the Lord H430 God, H1245 [H8763] to seek H8605 by prayer H8469 and supplications, H6685 with fasting, H8242 and sackcloth, H665 and ashes:
4 H6419 [H8691] And I prayed H3068 to the LORD H430 my God, H3034 [H8691] and made my confession, H559 [H8799] and said, H577 O H136 Lord, H1419 the great H3372 [H8737] and dreadful H410 God, H8104 [H8802] keeping H1285 the covenant H2617 and mercy H157 [H8802] to them that love H8104 [H8802] him, and to them that keep H4687 his commandments;
5 H2398 [H8804] We have sinned, H5753 [H8804] and have committed crookedness, H7561 [H8689] and have done wickedly, H4775 [H8804] and have rebelled, H5493 [H8800] even by departing H4687 from thy commandments H4941 and from thy judgments:
6 H8085 [H8804] Neither have we hearkened H5650 to thy servants H5030 the prophets, H1696 [H8765] who spoke H8034 in thy name H4428 to our kings, H8269 our princes, H1 and our fathers, H5971 and to all the people H776 of the land.
7 H136 O Lord, H6666 righteousness H1322 belongeth to thee, but to us shame H6440 of faces, H3117 as at this day; H376 to the men H3063 of Judah, H3427 [H8802] and to the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H3478 and to all Israel, H7138 that are near, H7350 and that are far off, H776 through all the lands H5080 [H8689] to which thou hast driven H4604 them, because of their treachery H4603 [H8804] that they have trespassed against thee.
8 H136 O Lord, H1322 to us belongeth shame H6440 of face, H4428 to our kings, H8269 to our princes, H1 and to our fathers, H2398 [H8804] because we have sinned against thee.
9 H136 To the Lord H430 our God H7356 belong compassions H5547 and forgivenesses, H4775 [H8804] though we have rebelled against him;
10 H8085 [H8804] Neither have we obeyed H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 our God, H3212 [H8800] to walk H8451 in his laws, H5414 [H8804] which he set H6440 at the face of H3027 us by H5650 his servants H5030 the prophets.
11 H3478 And all Israel H5674 [H8804] have transgressed H8451 thy law, H5493 [H8800] even by departing, H8085 [H8800] that they might not obey H6963 thy voice; H423 therefore the curse H5413 [H8799] is poured H7621 upon us, and the oath H3789 [H8803] that is written H8451 in the law H4872 of Moses H5650 the servant H430 of God, H2398 [H8804] because we have sinned against him.
12 H6965 [H8686] And he hath raised H1697 his words, H1696 [H8765] which he spoke H8199 [H8802] against us, and against our judges H8199 [H8804] that judged H935 [H8687] us, by bringing H1419 upon us a great H7451 evil: H8064 for under the whole heaven H6213 [H8738] it hath not been done H6213 [H8738] as it hath been done H3389 upon Jerusalem.
13 H3789 [H8803] As it is written H8451 in the law H4872 of Moses, H7451 all this evil H935 [H8804] is come H2470 [H8765] upon us: yet we have not made our prayer H6440 at the face of H3068 the LORD H430 our God, H7725 [H8800] that we might turn H5771 from our perversities, H7919 [H8687] and understand H571 thy truth.
14 H3068 Therefore hath the LORD H8245 [H8799] watched H7451 upon the evil, H935 [H8686] and brought H3068 it upon us: for the LORD H430 our God H6662 is righteous H4639 in all his works H6213 [H8804] which he doeth: H8085 [H8804] for we have not obeyed H6963 his voice.
15 H136 And now, O Lord H430 our God, H3318 [H8689] that hast brought H5971 thy people H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt H2389 with a mighty H3027 hand, H6213 [H8799] and hast made H8034 thee renown, H3117 as at this day; H2398 [H8804] we have sinned, H7561 [H8804] we have done wickedly.
16 H136 O Lord, H6666 according to all thy righteousness, H639 I beseech thee, let thy anger H2534 and thy hot anger H7725 [H8799] be turned away H5892 from thy city H3389 Jerusalem, H6944 thy holy H2022 mountain: H2399 because for our sins, H5771 and for the perversities H1 of our fathers, H3389 Jerusalem H5971 and thy people H2781 have become a reproach H5439 to all that are about us.
17 H430 Now therefore, O our God, H8085 [H8798] hear H8605 the prayer H5650 of thy servant, H8469 and his supplications, H6440 and cause thy face H215 [H8685] to shine H4720 upon thy sanctuary H8076 that is desolate, H136 for the Lord's sake.
18 H430 O my God, H5186 [H8685] incline H241 thine ear, H8085 [H8798] and hear; H6491 [H8798] open H5869 thine eyes, H7200 [H8798] and behold H8074 [H8802] our desolations, H5892 and the city H7121 [H8738] which is called H8034 by thy name: H5307 [H8688] for we do not present H8469 our supplications H6440 at the face of H6666 thee for our righteousnesses, H7227 but for thy great H7356 compassions.
19 H136 O Lord, H8085 [H8798] hear; H136 O Lord, H5545 [H8798] forgive; H136 O Lord, H7181 [H8685] hearken H6213 [H8798] and do; H309 [H8762] defer H408 not, H430 for thy own sake, O my God: H5892 for thy city H5971 and thy people H7121 [H8738] are called H8034 by thy name.
20 H1696 [H8764] And while I was speaking, H6419 [H8693] and praying, H3034 [H8693] and confessing H2403 my sin H2403 and the sin H5971 of my people H3478 Israel, H5307 [H8688] and presenting H8467 my supplication H6440 at the face of H3068 the LORD H430 my God H6944 for the holy H2022 mountain H430 of my God;
21 H1696 [H8764] Yea, while I was speaking H8605 in prayer, H376 even the man H1403 Gabriel, H7200 [H8804] whom I had seen H2377 in the vision H8462 at the beginning, H3286 [H8716] being caused to fly H3288 swiftly, H5060 [H8802] touched H6256 me about the time H6153 of the evening H4503 oblation.
22 H995 [H8799] And he informed H1696 [H8762] me, and talked H559 [H8799] with me, and said, H1840 O Daniel, H3318 [H8804] I am now come forth H7919 [H8687] to give thee skill H998 and understanding.
23 H8462 At the beginning H8469 of thy supplications H1697 the commandment H3318 [H8804] came forth, H935 [H8804] and I am come H5046 [H8687] to show H2532 thee; for thou art greatly beloved: H995 [H8798] therefore understand H1697 the matter, H995 [H8685] and consider H4758 the vision.
24 H7657 Seventy H7620 weeks H2852 [H8738] are determined H5971 upon thy people H6944 and upon thy holy H5892 city, H3607 [H8763] to finish H6588 the revolt, H8552 H2856 [H8687] and to make an end H2403 of sins, H3722 [H8763] and to make reconciliation H5771 for perversity, H935 [H8687] and to bring in H5769 everlasting H6664 righteousness, H2856 [H8800] and to seal up H2377 the vision H5030 and prophecy, H4886 [H8800] and to anoint H6944 the most H6944 Holy.
25 H3045 [H8799] Know H7919 [H8686] therefore and understand, H4161 that from the going forth H1697 of the commandment H7725 [H8687] to restore H1129 [H8800] and to build H3389 Jerusalem H4899 to the Messiah H5057 the Prince H7651 shall be seven H7620 weeks, H8346 and sixty H8147 and two H7620 weeks: H7339 the street H1129 [H8738] shall be built H7725 [H8799] again, H2742 and the wall, H6695 even in troublous H6256 times.
26 H310 And after H8346 sixty H8147 and two H7620 weeks H4899 shall Messiah H3772 [H8735] be cut off, H5971 but not for himself: and the people H5057 of the prince H935 [H8802] that shall come H7843 [H8686] shall decay H5892 the city H6944 and the sanctuary; H7093 and its end H7858 shall be with a flood, H7093 and to the end H4421 of the war H8074 [H8802] desolations H2782 [H8737] are determined.
27 H1396 [H8689] And he shall confirm H1285 the covenant H7227 with many H259 for one H7620 week: H2677 and in the midst H7620 of the week H2077 he shall cause the sacrifice H4503 and the oblation H7673 [H8686] to cease, H3671 and for the overspreading H8251 of abominations H8074 [H8789] he shall make it desolate, H3617 even until the consummation, H2782 [H8737] and that determined H5413 [H8799] shall be poured H8074 [H8802] upon the desolate.
