Daniel 10


1  In the third7969 year8141 of Cyrus3566 king4428 of Persia6539 a thing1697 was revealed1540 unto Daniel,1840 whose834 name8034 was called7121 Belteshazzar;1095 and the thing1697 was true,571 but the time appointed6635 was long:1419 and he understood995 853 the thing,1697 and had understanding998 of the vision.4758

2  In those1992 days3117 I589 Daniel1840 was1961 mourning56 three7969 full3117 weeks.7620

3  I ate398 no3808 pleasant2530 bread,3899 neither3808 came935 flesh1320 nor wine3196 in413 my mouth,6310 neither3808 did I anoint myself at all,5480 5480 till5704 three7969 whole3117 weeks7620 were fulfilled.4390

4  And in the four702 and twentieth6242 day3117 of the first7223 month,2320 as I589 was1961 by5921 the side3027 of the great1419 river,5104 which1931 is Hiddekel;2313

5  Then I lifted up5375 853 mine eyes,5869 and looked,7200 and behold2009 a certain259 man376 clothed3847 in linen,906 whose loins4975 were girded2296 with fine gold3800 of Uphaz:210

6  His body1472 also was like the beryl,8658 and his face6440 as the appearance4758 of lightning,1300 and his eyes5869 as lamps3940 of fire,784 and his arms2220 and his feet4772 like in color5869 to polished7044 brass,5178 and the voice6963 of his words1697 like the voice6963 of a multitude.1995

7  And I589 Daniel1840 alone905 saw7200 853 the vision:4759 for the men376 that834 were1961 with5973 me saw7200 not3808 853 the vision;4759 but61 a great1419 quaking2731 fell5307 upon5921 them, so that they fled1272 to hide themselves.2244

8  Therefore I589 was left7604 alone,905 and saw7200 853 this2063 great1419 vision,4759 and there remained7604 no3808 strength3581 in me: for my comeliness1935 was turned2015 in5921 me into corruption,4889 and I retained6113 no3808 strength.3581

9  Yet heard8085 I 853 the voice6963 of his words:1697 and when I heard8085 853 the voice6963 of his words,1697 then was1961 I589 in a deep sleep7290 on5921 my face,6440 and my face6440 toward the ground.776

10  And, behold,2009 a hand3027 touched5060 me, which set5128 me upon5921 my knees1290 and upon the palms3709 of my hands.3027

11  And he said559 unto413 me, O Daniel,1840 a man376 greatly beloved,2530 understand995 the words1697 that834 I595 speak1696 unto413 thee, and stand5975 upright:5921 5977 for3588 unto413 thee am I now6258 sent.7971 And when he had spoken1696 853 this2088 word1697 unto5973 me, I stood5975 trembling.7460

12  Then said559 he unto413 me, Fear3372 not,408 Daniel:1840 for3588 from4480 the first7223 day3117 that834 thou didst set5414 853 thine heart3820 to understand,995 and to chasten thyself6031 before6440 thy God,430 thy words1697 were heard,8085 and I589 am come935 for thy words.1697

13  But the prince8269 of the kingdom4438 of Persia6539 withstood5975 5048 me one259 and twenty6242 days:3117 but, lo,2009 Michael,4317 one259 of the chief7223 princes,8269 came935 to help5826 me; and I589 remained3498 there8033 with681 the kings4428 of Persia.6539

14  Now I am come935 to make thee understand995 853 what834 shall befall7136 thy people5971 in the latter319 days:3117 for3588 yet5750 the vision2377 is for many days.3117

15  And when he had spoken1696 such428 words1697 unto5973 me, I set5414 my face6440 toward the ground,776 and I became dumb.481

16  And, behold,2009 one like the similitude1823 of the sons1121 of men120 touched5060 5921 my lips:8193 then I opened6605 my mouth,6310 and spoke,1696 and said559 unto413 him that stood5975 before5048 me, O my lord,113 by the vision4758 my sorrows6735 are turned2015 upon5921 me, and I have retained6113 no3808 strength.3581

17  For how1963 can3201 the servant5650 of this2088 my lord113 talk1696 with5973 this2088 my lord?113 for as for me,589 straightway4480 6258 there remained5975 no3808 strength3581 in me, neither3808 is there breath5397 left7604 in me.

18  Then there came again3584 and touched5060 me one like the appearance4758 of a man,120 and he strengthened2388 me,

19  And said,559 O man376 greatly beloved,2530 fear3372 not:408 peace7965 be unto thee, be strong,2388 yea, be strong.2388 And when he had spoken1696 unto5973 me, I was strengthened,2388 and said,559 Let my lord113 speak;1696 for3588 thou hast strengthened2388 me.

20  Then said559 he, Knowest3045 thou wherefore4100 I come935 unto413 thee? and now6258 will I return7725 to fight3898 with5973 the prince8269 of Persia:6539 and when I589 am gone forth,3318 lo,2009 the prince8269 of Greece3120 shall come.935

21  But61 I will show5046 thee 853 that which is noted7559 in the Scripture3791 of truth:571 and there is none369 259 that holdeth2388 with5973 me in5921 these things,428 but3588 518 Michael4317 your prince.8269


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

2 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐγὼ Δανιηλ ἤμην πενθῶν τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας

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

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

5 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος εἷς ἐνδεδυμένος βύσσινα καὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν περιεζωσμένος βυσσίνῳ καὶ ἐκ μέσου αὐτοῦ φῶς

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

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

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

9 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν λαλιᾶς αὐτοῦ ἐγὼ ἤμην πεπτωκὼς ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

10 καὶ ἰδοὺ χεῖρα προσήγαγέ μοι καὶ ἤγειρέ με ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων ἐπὶ τὰ ἴχνη τῶν ποδῶν μου

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

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

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

14 καὶ εἶπέν μοι ἦλθον ὑποδεῖξαί σοι τί ὑπαντήσεται τῷ λαῷ σου ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν ἔτι γὰρ ὅρασις εἰς ἡμέρας

15 καὶ ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν λαλῆσαι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ τὰ προστάγματα ταῦτα ἔδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐσιώπησα

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

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

18 καὶ προσέθηκε καὶ ἥψατό μου ὡς ὅρασις ἀνθρώπου καὶ κατίσχυσέ με

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

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

21 καὶ μάλα ὑποδείξω σοι τὰ πρῶτα ἐν ἀπογραφῇ ἀληθείας καὶ οὐθεὶς ἦν ὁ βοηθῶν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ὑπὲρ τούτων ἀλλ᾽ ἢ Μιχαηλ ὁ ἄγγελος


1 ἐν ἔτει τρίτῳ Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν λόγος ἀπεκαλύφθη τῷ Δανιηλ οὗ τὸ ὄνομα ἐπεκλήθη Βαλτασαρ καὶ ἀληθινὸς ὁ λόγος καὶ δύναμις μεγάλη καὶ σύνεσις ἐδόθη αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ ὀπτασίᾳ

2 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐγὼ Δανιηλ ἤμην πενθῶν τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας ἡμερῶν

3 ἄρτον ἐπιθυμιῶν οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ κρέας καὶ οἶνος οὐκ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ στόμα μου καὶ ἄλειμμα οὐκ ἠλειψάμην ἕως πληρώσεως τριῶν ἑβδομάδων ἡμερῶν

4 ἐν ἡμέρᾳ εἰκοστῇ καὶ τετάρτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου καὶ ἐγὼ ἤμην ἐχόμενα τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου αὐτός ἐστιν Εδδεκελ

5 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ εἷς ἐνδεδυμένος βαδδιν καὶ ἡ ὀσφὺς αὐτοῦ περιεζωσμένη ἐν χρυσίῳ Ωφαζ

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 τὰ σκέλη ὡς ὅρασις χαλκοῦ στίλβοντος καὶ ἡ φωνὴ τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ ὡς φωνὴ ὄχλου

7 καὶ εἶδον ἐγὼ Δανιηλ μόνος τὴν ὀπτασίαν καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ οὐκ εἶδον τὴν ὀπτασίαν ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἔκστασις μεγάλη ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς καὶ ἔφυγον ἐν φόβῳ

8 καὶ ἐγὼ ὑπελείφθην μόνος καὶ εἶδον τὴν ὀπτασίαν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην καὶ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς καὶ ἡ δόξα μου μετεστράφη εἰς διαφθοράν καὶ οὐκ ἐκράτησα ἰσχύος

9 καὶ ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαί με αὐτοῦ ἤμην κατανενυγμένος καὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

10 καὶ ἰδοὺ χεὶρ ἁπτομένη μου καὶ ἤγειρέν με ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατά μου

11 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με Δανιηλ ἀνὴρ ἐπιθυμιῶν σύνες ἐν τοῖς λόγοις οἷς ἐγὼ λαλῶ πρὸς σέ καὶ στῆθι ἐπὶ τῇ στάσει σου ὅτι νῦν ἀπεστάλην πρὸς σέ καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν πρός με τὸν λόγον τοῦτον ἀνέστην ἔντρομος

12 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με μὴ φοβοῦ Δανιηλ ὅτι ἀπὸ τῆς πρώτης ἡμέρας ἧς ἔδωκας τὴν καρδίαν σου τοῦ συνιέναι καὶ κακωθῆναι ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ σου ἠκούσθησαν οἱ λόγοι σου καὶ ἐγὼ ἦλθον ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου

13 καὶ ὁ ἄρχων βασιλείας Περσῶν εἱστήκει ἐξ ἐναντίας μου εἴκοσι καὶ μίαν ἡμέραν καὶ ἰδοὺ Μιχαηλ εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν πρώτων ἦλθεν βοηθῆσαί μοι καὶ αὐτὸν κατέλιπον ἐκεῖ μετὰ τοῦ ἄρχοντος βασιλείας Περσῶν

14 καὶ ἦλθον συνετίσαι σε ὅσα ἀπαντήσεται τῷ λαῷ σου ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτων τῶν ἡμερῶν ὅτι ἔτι ἡ ὅρασις εἰς ἡμέρας

15 καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ κατὰ τοὺς λόγους τούτους ἔδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ κατενύγην

16 καὶ ἰδοὺ ὡς ὁμοίωσις υἱοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἥψατο τῶν χειλέων μου καὶ ἤνοιξα τὸ στόμα μου καὶ ἐλάλησα καὶ εἶπα πρὸς τὸν ἑστῶτα ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ κύριε ἐν τῇ ὀπτασίᾳ σου ἐστράφη τὰ ἐντός μου ἐν ἐμοί καὶ οὐκ ἔσχον ἰσχύν

17 καὶ πῶς δυνήσεται ὁ παῖς σου κύριε λαλῆσαι μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τούτου καὶ ἐγὼ ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν οὐ στήσεται ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς καὶ πνοὴ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη ἐν ἐμοί

18 καὶ προσέθετο καὶ ἥψατό μου ὡς ὅρασις ἀνθρώπου καὶ ἐνίσχυσέν με

19 καὶ εἶπέν μοι μὴ φοβοῦ ἀνὴρ ἐπιθυμιῶν εἰρήνη σοι ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἴσχυσα καὶ εἶπα λαλείτω ὁ κύριός μου ὅτι ἐνίσχυσάς με

20 καὶ εἶπεν εἰ οἶδας ἵνα τί ἦλθον πρὸς σέ καὶ νῦν ἐπιστρέψω τοῦ πολεμῆσαι μετὰ ἄρχοντος Περσῶν καὶ ἐγὼ ἐξεπορευόμην καὶ ὁ ἄρχων τῶν Ἑλλήνων ἤρχετο

21 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἀναγγελῶ σοι τὸ ἐντεταγμένον ἐν γραφῇ ἀληθείας καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν εἷς ἀντεχόμενος μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ περὶ τούτων ἀλλ᾽ ἢ Μιχαηλ ὁ ἄρχων ὑμῶν

1 Anno tertio Cyri regis Persarum, verbum revelatum est Danieli cognomento Baltassar, et verbum verum, et fortitudo magna: intellexitque sermonem: intelligentia enim est opus in visione.

2 In diebus illis ego Daniel lugebam trium hebdomadarum diebus:

3 panem desiderabilem non comedi, et caro et vinum non introierunt in os meum, sed neque unguento unctus sum, donec complerentur trium hebdomadarum dies.

4 Die autem vigesima et quarta mensis primi, eram juxta fluvium magnum, qui est Tigris.

5 Et levavi oculos meos, et vidi: et ecce vir unus vestitus lineis, et renes ejus accincti auro obrizo:

6 et corpus ejus quasi chrysolithus, et facies ejus velut species fulguris, et oculi ejus ut lampas ardens: et brachia ejus, et quæ deorsum sunt usque ad pedes, quasi species æris candentis: et vox sermonum ejus ut vox multitudinis.

7 Vidi autem ego Daniel solus visionem: porro viri qui erant mecum non viderunt, sed terror nimius irruit super eos, et fugerunt in absconditum.

8 Ego autem relictus solus vidi visionem grandem hanc: et non remansit in me fortitudo, sed et species mea immutata est in me, et emarcui, nec habui quidquam virium.

9 Et audivi vocem sermonum ejus: et audiens jacebam consternatus super faciem meam, et vultus meus hærebat terræ.

10 Et ecce manus tetigit me, et erexit me super genua mea, et super articulos manuum mearum.

11 Et dixit ad me: Daniel vir desideriorum, intellige verba quæ ego loquor ad te, et sta in gradu tuo: nunc enim sum missus ad te. Cumque dixisset mihi sermonem istum, steti tremens.

12 Et ait ad me: Noli metuere, Daniel: quia ex die primo, quo posuisti cor tuum ad intelligendum ut te affligeres in conspectu Dei tui, exaudita sunt verba tua: et ego veni propter sermones tuos.

13 Princeps autem regni Persarum restitit mihi viginti et uno diebus: et ecce Michaël, unus de principibus primis, venit in adjutorium meum, et ego remansi ibi juxta regem Persarum.

14 Veni autem ut docerem te quæ ventura sunt populo tuo in novissimis diebus, quoniam adhuc visio in dies.

15 Cumque loqueretur mihi hujuscemodi verbis, dejeci vultum meum ad terram, et tacui.

16 Et ecce quasi similitudo filii hominis tetigit labia mea: et aperiens os meum locutus sum, et dixi ad eum, qui stabat contra me: Domine mi, in visione tua dissolutæ sunt compages meæ, et nihil in me remansit virium.

17 Et quomodo poterit servus domini mei loqui cum domino meo? nihil enim in me remansit virium, sed et halitus meus intercluditur.

18 Rursum ergo tetigit me quasi visio hominis, et confortavit me,

19 et dixit: Noli timere, vir desideriorum: pax tibi: confortare, et esto robustus. Cumque loqueretur mecum, convalui, et dixi: Loquere, domine mi, quia confortasti me.

20 Et ait: Numquid scis quare venerim ad te? et nunc revertar ut prælier adversum principem Persarum. Cum ego egrederer, apparuit princeps Græcorum veniens.

21 Verumtamen annuntiabo tibi quod expressum est in scriptura veritatis: et nemo est adjutor meus in omnibus his, nisi Michaël princeps vester.
