▼ Or warfareconflict, but he understood the ▼ message and had an h understanding of the vision. 2 In those days, I, Daniel, had been i mourning for three entire weeks. 3 I j did not eat any ▼
▼ Lit bread of desirabilitytasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed. 4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great l river, that is, the ▼
▼ Heb HiddekelTigris, 5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man n dressed in linen, whose waist was o girded with a belt of pure p gold of Uphaz. 6 His body also was like ▼
▼ Or yellow serpentineberyl, his face ▼
▼ Lit likehad the appearance of lightning s 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 ▼
▼ Or roaringtumult. 7 Now I, Daniel u alone saw the vision, while the v men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great w dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves. 8 So I was x left alone and saw this great vision; yet y no strength was left in me, for my ▼
