And [2ability 1great] and understanding was given to him in the apparition. 2In those days, I Daniel was mourning three periods of seven of days. 3[2bread 1Of desirable] I ate not, and meat and wine did not go into my mouth, and an anointing I did not anoint with until the fullness of the three period of sevens of days. 4On the [3day 1twentieth 2and fourth] of the [2month 1first], and I was next to the [2river 1great] -- it is the Tigris. 5And I lifted my eyes and looked. And behold, a man, one being clothed with linen clothes, and his loin being girded in gold of Uphaz. 6And his body was as Tharsis stone, and his face as a sight of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his legs as the sight of brass shining, and the sound of his words as a sound of a multitude. 7And [4beheld 1I 2Daniel 3alone] the apparition. And the men, the ones with me, beheld not the apparition, but [2change of state 1a great] fell upon them, and they fled in fear. 8And I was left behind alone. And I beheld [2apparition 1this great], and there was not left in me strength, and my glory converted into corruption, and I held no strength. 9And I heard the voice of his words. And in my hearing the sound of his discourses, I was being vexed, and my face was upon the ground. 10And behold, a hand was touching me, and raised me upon my knees and palms of my hands. 11And he said to me, Daniel, man desired; perceive by the words which I speak to you, and stand at your position! for now I am sent to you. And in his speaking to me this word, I rose up trembling. 12And he said to me, Fear not Daniel! for from the [2day 1first] of which you gave your heart to perceive, and to afflict yourself before the lord your God, [2were heard 1your words], and I came because of your words.

And behold, Michael, one of the rulers of the ones foremost, came to help me; and I left him there with the ruler of the kingdom of the Persians. 14And I came to bring understanding to you as much as shall meet your people in last of the days. For [3is still 1the 2vision] for days. 15And in his speaking with me according to these words, I put my face unto the ground, and was vexed. 16And behold, as a likeness of a son of man touched my lips, and I opened my mouth, and I spoke, and said to the one standing before me, O lord, at the apparition of you [2turned 1my within] in me, and I had not strength. 17And how shall [2be able 1your servant], O lord, to speak after [2my lord 1this]? And I, from the present shall not stand with strength in me, and there is no breath left in me. 18And proceeded and touched me as it were a vision of a man. And he strengthened me. 19And he said to me, Fear not, man desired! Peace to you, be manly and strong! And in his speaking with me, I strengthened, and I said, Speak, my lord! for you strengthened me. 20And he said, Do you know why I came to you? And now, I shall return to wage war with the ruler of the Persians. And I coming forth, and the ruler of the Greeks came. 21But I will announce to you the arranging in the writing of truth.
