Chapter 10

Old Greek Theodotion

1  In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniēl, 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.

בִּשְׁנַ֣ת שָׁלֹ֗ושׁ לְכֹ֙ורֶשׁ֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ פָּרַ֔ס דָּבָר֙ נִגְלָ֣ה לְדָֽנִיֵּ֔אל אֲשֶׁר־נִקְרָ֥א שְׁמֹ֖ו בֵּלְטְשַׁאצַּ֑ר וֶאֱמֶ֤ת הַדָּבָר֙ וְצָבָ֣א גָדֹ֔ול וּבִין֙ אֶת־הַדָּבָ֔ר וּבִ֥ינָה לֹ֖ו בַּמַּרְאֶֽה׃

1 ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ πρώτῳ Κύρου τοῦ βασιλέως Περσῶν πρόσταγμα ἐδείχθη τῷ Δανιήλ, ὃς ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα Βαλτασάρ, καὶ ἀληθὲς τὸ ὅραμα καὶ τὸ πρόσταγμα, καὶ τὸ πλῆθος τὸ ἰσχυρὸν διανοηθήσεται τὸ πρόσταγμα, καὶ διενοήθην αὐτὸ ἐν ὁράματι. 1 ἐν ἔτει τρίτῳ Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν λόγος ἀπεκαλύφθη τῷ Δανιήλ, οὗ τὸ ὄνομα ἐπεκλήθη Βαλτασάρ· καὶ ἀληθινὸς λόγος, καὶ δύναμις μεγάλη καὶ σύνεσις ἐδόθη αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ ὀπτασίᾳ.
1 In the first year of King Cyrus of the Persians a word was revealed to Daniēl, whose name was called Baltasar. And the word was genuine, and great power and understanding was given to him by the vision. 1 In the third year of Cyrus king of the Persians a thing was revealed to Daniēl, whose name was called Baltasar; and the thing was true, and great power and understanding in the vision was given to him.

2  In those days I Daniēl was mourning three full weeks.

בַּיָּמִ֖ים הָהֵ֑ם אֲנִ֤י דָֽנִיֵּאל֙ הָיִ֣יתִי מִתְאַבֵּ֔ל שְׁלֹשָׁ֥ה שָׁבֻעִ֖ים יָמִֽים׃

2 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐγὼ Δανιὴλ ἤμην πενθῶν τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας· 2 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἐγὼ Δανιὴλ ἤμην πενθῶν τρεῖς ἑβδομάδας ἡμερῶν,
2 In those days I, Daniēl, was in mourning. 2 In those days I Daniēl was mourning three full weeks.

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.

לֶ֣חֶם חֲמֻדֹ֞ות לֹ֣א אָכַ֗לְתִּי וּבָשָׂ֥ר וָיַ֛יִן לֹא־בָ֥א אֶל־פִּ֖י וְסֹ֣וךְ לֹא־סָ֑כְתִּי עַד־מְלֹ֕את שְׁלֹ֥שֶׁת שָׁבֻעִ֖ים יָמִֽים׃

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. 3 ἄρτον ἐπιθυμιῶν οὐκ ἔφαγον, καὶ κρέας καὶ οἶνος οὐκ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ στόμα μου, καὶ ἄλειμμα οὐκ ἠλειψάμην, ἕως πληρώσεως τριῶν ἑβδομάδων ἡμερῶν.
3 I had not eaten food of desire, and no meat or wine had entered my mouth. I had not anointed myself with oil until I completed three weeks of days. 3 I ate no pleasant bread, and no flesh or wine entered into my mouth, neither did I anoint myself with oil, until three whole weeks were accomplished.

4  And in the 24th day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel;

וּבְיֹ֛ום עֶשְׂרִ֥ים וְאַרְבָּעָ֖ה לַחֹ֣דֶשׁ הָרִאשֹׁ֑ון וַאֲנִ֗י הָיִ֛יתִי עַ֣ל יַ֧ד הַנָּהָ֛ר הַגָּדֹ֖ול ה֥וּא חִדָּֽקֶל׃

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, 4 ἐν ἡμέρᾳ εἰκοστῇ καὶ τετάρτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου, καὶ ἐγὼ ἤμην ἐχόμενα τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου, αὐτός ἐστιν Ἐδδεκέλ.
4 And it happened on the twenty-fourth day of the first month, and as I was on the bank of the great river, which is the Tigris, 4 On the 24th day of the first month, I was near the great river, which is Tigris Eddekel.

5  Then I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

וָאֶשָּׂ֤א אֶת־עֵינַי֙ וָאֵ֔רֶא וְהִנֵּ֥ה אִישׁ־אֶחָ֖ד לָב֣וּשׁ בַּדִּ֑ים וּמָתְנָ֥יו חֲגֻרִ֖ים בְּכֶ֥תֶם אוּפָֽז׃

5 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος εἷς ἐνδεδυμένος βύσσινα καὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν περιεζωσμένος βυσσίνῳ, καὶ ἐκ μέσου αὐτοῦ φῶς, 5 καὶ ἦρα τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου, καὶ εἶδον, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ εἷς ἐνδεδυμένος βαδδιν, καὶ ὀσφὺς αὐτοῦ περιεζωσμένη ἐν χρυσίῳ Ὠφάζ,
5 and I raised my eyes and saw, and lo, there was one person clothed in linen and girded with gold around the waist and a light from his middle. 5 And I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold a man clothed in linen, and his loins were girt with gold of Ōphaz:

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 copper-alloy, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.

וּגְוִיָּתֹ֣ו כְתַרְשִׁ֗ישׁ וּפָנָ֞יו כְּמַרְאֵ֤ה בָרָק֙ וְעֵינָיו֙ כְּלַפִּ֣ידֵי אֵ֔שׁ וּזְרֹֽעֹתָיו֙ וּמַרְגְּלֹתָ֔יו כְּעֵ֖ין נְחֹ֣שֶׁת קָלָ֑ל וְקֹ֥ול דְּבָרָ֖יו כְּקֹ֥ול הָמֹֽון׃

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. 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 φωνὴ τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ ὡς φωνὴ ὄχλου.
6 And his body was like tharsis, and his face like an appearance of lightning, and his eyes like torches of fire, and his arms and feet like dazzling bronze, and the sound of his talking like the sound of a throng. 6 and his body was as Tharsis, and his face was a the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his legs as the appearance of shining copper-alloy, and the voice of his words as the voice of a multitude.

7  And I Daniēl alone saw the vision: for the men who were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.

וְרָאִיתִי֩ אֲנִ֨י דָנִיֵּ֤אל לְבַדִּי֙ אֶת־הַמַּרְאָ֔ה וְהָאֲנָשִׁים֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הָי֣וּ עִמִּ֔י לֹ֥א רָא֖וּ אֶת־הַמַּרְאָ֑ה אֲבָ֗ל חֲרָדָ֤ה גְדֹלָה֙ נָפְלָ֣ה עֲלֵיהֶ֔ם וַֽיִּבְרְח֖וּ בְּהֵחָבֵֽא׃

7 καὶ εἶδον ἐγὼ Δανιὴλ 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· 7 καὶ εἶδον ἐγὼ Δανιὴλ μόνος τὴν ὀπτασίαν, καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ οὐκ εἶδον τὴν ὀπτασίαν, ἀλλ᾿ ἔκστασις μεγάλη ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς, καὶ ἔφυγον ἐν φόβῳ.
7 And I, Daniēl, saw this great vision, and the persons who were with me saw this vision, and a mighty fear fell on them, and they ran away in haste. 7 And I Daniēl only saw the vision: and the men who were with me saw not the vision; but a great amazement fell upon them, and they fled in fear.

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 no strength.

וַאֲנִי֙ נִשְׁאַ֣רְתִּי לְבַדִּ֔י וָֽאֶרְאֶ֗ה אֶת־הַמַּרְאָ֤ה הַגְּדֹלָה֙ הַזֹּ֔את וְלֹ֥א נִשְׁאַר־בִּ֖י כֹּ֑ח וְהֹודִ֗י נֶהְפַּ֤ךְ עָלַי֙ לְמַשְׁחִ֔ית וְלֹ֥א עָצַ֖רְתִּי כֹּֽחַ׃

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. 8 καὶ ἐγὼ ὑπελείφθην μόνος, καὶ εἶδον τὴν ὀπτασίαν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην, καὶ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς, καὶ δόξα μου μετεστράφη εἰς διαφθοράν· καὶ οὐκ ἐκράτησα ἰσχύος.
8 And I remained alone, and I saw this great vision. And no strength remained in me, and I saw a spirit turned toward me in order to corrupt, and I did not prevail. 8 So I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there was no strength left in me, and my glory was turned into corruption, and I retained no strength.

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.

וָאֶשְׁמַ֖ע אֶת־קֹ֣ול דְּבָרָ֑יו וּכְשָׁמְעִי֙ אֶת־קֹ֣ול דְּבָרָ֔יו וַאֲנִ֗י הָיִ֛יתִי נִרְדָּ֥ם עַל־פָּנַ֖י וּפָנַ֥י אָֽרְצָה׃

9 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν λαλιᾶς αὐτοῦ, ἐγὼ ἤμην πεπτωκὼς ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. 9 καὶ ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαί με αὐτοῦ, ἤμην κατανενυγμένος, καὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν.
9 And as I heard the sound of his talking, I fell on my face to the ground. 9 Yet I heard the voice of his words: and when I heard him I was pricked in the heart, and I fell with my face to the earth.

10  And, behold, a hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.

וְהִנֵּה־יָ֖ד נָ֣גְעָה בִּ֑י וַתְּנִיעֵ֥נִי עַל־בִּרְכַּ֖י וְכַפֹּ֥ות יָדָֽי׃

10 καὶ ἰδοὺ χεῖρα προσήγαγέ μοι καὶ ἤγειρέ με ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων ἐπὶ τὰ ἴχνη τῶν ποδῶν μου. 10 καὶ ἰδοὺ χεὶρ ἁπτομένη μου, καὶ ἤγειρέν με ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατά μου.
10 And lo, he reached out a hand to me and roused me on my knees to the soles of my feet. 10 And, behold, a hand touched me, and it raised me on my knees.

11  And he said unto me, Oh Daniēl, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto you, and stand upright: for unto you am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלַ֡י דָּנִיֵּ֣אל אִישׁ־חֲ֠מֻדֹות הָבֵ֨ן בַּדְּבָרִ֜ים אֲשֶׁר֩ אָנֹכִ֨י דֹבֵ֤ר אֵלֶ֙יךָ֙ וַעֲמֹ֣ד עַל־עָמְדֶ֔ךָ כִּ֥י עַתָּ֖ה שֻׁלַּ֣חְתִּי אֵלֶ֑יךָ וּבְדַבְּרֹ֥ו עִמִּ֛י אֶת־הַדָּבָ֥ר הַזֶּ֖ה עָמַ֥דְתִּי מַרְעִֽיד׃

11 καὶ εἶπέν μοι Δανιήλ, 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.
11 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με, Δανιὴλ 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.
11 And he said to me, “Daniēl, you are a person shown mercy. Ponder the ordinances that I am going to speak to you. And stand in your place, for I have just been sent to you.” And while he spoke this decree to me, I stood trembling. 11 And he said to me, Oh Daniēl, man greatly beloved, understand the words which I speak to you, and stand upright: for I am now sent to you. And when he had spoken to me this word, I stood trembling.

12  Then said he unto me, Don’t fear, Daniēl: for from the first day that you did set your heart to understand, and to chasten yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I am come for your words.

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלַי֮ אַל־תִּירָ֣א דָנִיֵּאל֒ כִּ֣י ׀ מִן־הַיֹּ֣ום הָרִאשֹׁ֗ון אֲשֶׁ֨ר נָתַ֧תָּ אֶֽת־לִבְּךָ֛ לְהָבִ֧ין וּלְהִתְעַנֹּ֛ות לִפְנֵ֥י אֱלֹהֶ֖יךָ נִשְׁמְע֣וּ דְבָרֶ֑יךָ וַאֲנִי־בָ֖אתִי בִּדְבָרֶֽיךָ׃

12 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με μὴ φοβοῦ, Δανιήλ· 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. 12 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με, μὴ φοβοῦ Δανιήλ, 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.
12 And he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniēl, for from the first day that you gave your mind to gain knowledge and to be humble before your Lord, your word has been heeded, and I have come because of your word. 12 And he said to me, Don’t fear, Daniēl: for from the first day that you did set your heart to understand, and to afflict yourself before the Lord your God, they words were heard, and I am come because of your words.

13  But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and 20 days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

וְשַׂ֣ר ׀ מַלְכ֣וּת פָּרַ֗ס עֹמֵ֤ד לְנֶגְדִּי֙ עֶשְׂרִ֣ים וְאֶחָ֣ד יֹ֔ום וְהִנֵּ֣ה מִֽיכָאֵ֗ל אַחַ֛ד הַשָּׂרִ֥ים הָרִאשֹׁנִ֖ים בָּ֣א לְעָזְרֵ֑נִי וַאֲנִי֙ נֹותַ֣רְתִּי שָׁ֔ם אֵ֖צֶל מַלְכֵ֥י פָרָֽס׃

13 καὶ στρατηγὸς βασιλέως Περσῶν ἀνθειστήκει ἐναντίον μου εἴκοσι καὶ μίαν ἡμέραν, καὶ ἰδοὺ Μιχαὴλ εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν πρώτων ἐπῆλθε βοηθῆσαί μοι, καὶ αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ κατέλιπον μετὰ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ τοῦ βασιλέως Περσῶν. 13 καὶ ἄρχων βασιλείας Περσῶν εἱστήκει ἐξ ἐναντίας μου εἴκοσι καὶ μίαν ἡμέραν· καὶ ἰδοὺ Μιχαὴλ εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν πρώτων ἦλθεν βοηθῆσαί μοι, καὶ αὐτὸν κατέλιπον ἐκεῖ μετὰ τοῦ ἄρχοντος βασιλείας Περσῶν,
13 And the general of the king of the Persians opposed me twenty and one day. Loc, one of the holy angels approached to help me, and I left him there with the general of the king of the Persians.” 13 But the prince of the kingdom of the Persians withstood me 21 days: and behold, Michael, one of the princes, came to help me; and I left him there with the chief of the kingdom of the Persians:

14  Now I am come to make you understand what shall befall your people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

וּבָ֙אתִי֙ לַהֲבִ֣ינְךָ֔ אֵ֛ת אֲשֶׁר־יִקְרָ֥ה לְעַמְּךָ֖ בְּאַחֲרִ֣ית הַיָּמִ֑ים כִּי־עֹ֥וד חָזֹ֖ון לַיָּמִֽים׃

14 καὶ εἶπέν μοι ἦλθον ὑποδεῖξαί σοὶ τί ὑπαντήσεται τῷ λαῷ σου ἐπ᾿ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν, ἔτι γὰρ ὅρασις εἰς ἡμέρας. 14 καὶ ἦλθον συνετίσαι σὲ ὅσα ἀπαντήσεται τῷ λαῷ σου ἐπ᾿ ἐσχάτων τῶν ἡμερῶν, ὅτι ἔτι ὅρασις εἰς ἡμέρας.
14 And he said to me, “I have come to explain to you that it will come upon your people at the end of days, for a vision is yet for days.” 14 and I have come to inform you of all that shall befall your people in the last days: for the vision is yet for many days.

15  And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.

וּבְדַבְּרֹ֣ו עִמִּ֔י כַּדְּבָרִ֖ים הָאֵ֑לֶּה נָתַ֧תִּי פָנַ֛י אַ֖רְצָה וְנֶאֱלָֽמְתִּי׃

15 καὶ ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν λαλῆσαι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ τὰ προστάγματα ταῦτα ἔδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐσιώπησα. 15 καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ κατὰ τοὺς λόγους τούτους, ἔδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καὶ κατενύγην.
15 And as he spoke with me these decrees, I gave my face toward the ground and was silent. 15 And when he had spoken with me according to these words, I turned my face to the ground, and was pricked in the heart.

16  And, behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spoke, and said unto him who stood before me, Oh my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.

וְהִנֵּ֗ה כִּדְמוּת֙ בְּנֵ֣י אָדָ֔ם נֹגֵ֖עַ עַל־שְׂפָתָ֑י וָאֶפְתַּח־פִּ֗י וָאֲדַבְּרָה֙ וָאֹֽמְרָה֙ אֶל־הָעֹמֵ֣ד לְנֶגְדִּ֔י אֲדֹנִ֗י בַּמַּרְאָה֙ נֶהֶפְכ֤וּ צִירַי֙ עָלַ֔י וְלֹ֥א עָצַ֖רְתִּי כֹּֽחַ׃

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· 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.
16 And lo, as it were a likeness of a human hand touched my lips, and I opened my mouth, and I spoke and said to the one who stood in front of me, “Sir, as the vision turned to me, to my flank, there was not even strength in me. 16 And, behold, as it were the likeness of a son of man touched my lips; and I opened my mouth, and spoke, and said to him who stood before me, Oh my lord, at the sight of you my bowels were turned within me, and I had no strength.

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.

וְהֵ֣יךְ יוּכַ֗ל עֶ֤בֶד אֲדֹנִי֙ זֶ֔ה לְדַבֵּ֖ר עִם־אֲדֹ֣נִי זֶ֑ה וַאֲנִ֤י מֵעַ֙תָּה֙ לֹֽא־יַעֲמָד־בִּ֣י כֹ֔חַ וּנְשָׁמָ֖ה לֹ֥א נִשְׁאֲרָה־בִֽי׃

17 καὶ πῶς δυνήσεται παῖς λαλῆσαι μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ;
καὶ ἐγὼ ἠσθένησα, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς, καὶ πνεῦμα οὐ κατελείφθη ἐν ἐμοί.
17 καὶ πῶς δυνήσεται παῖς σου κύριε λαλῆσαι μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τούτου;
καὶ ἐγώ, ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν οὐ στήσεται ἐν ἐμοὶ ἰσχύς, καὶ πνοὴ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη ἐν ἐμοί.
17 And how will the servant be able to talk with his lord?” And as for me, I became weak, and no strength stayed in me, and no breath remained in me. 17 And how shall your servant be able, Oh my lord, to speak with this my lord? and as for me, from henceforth strength won’t remain in me, and there is no breath left in me.

18  Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,

וַיֹּ֧סֶף וַיִּגַּע־בִּ֛י כְּמַרְאֵ֥ה אָדָ֖ם וַֽיְחַזְּקֵֽנִי׃

18 καὶ προσέθηκε καὶ ἥψατό μου ὡς ὅρασις ἀνθρώπου καὶ κατίσχυσέ με 18 καὶ προσέθετο, καὶ ἥψατό μου ὡς ὅρασις ἀνθρώπου, καὶ ἐνίσχυσέν με,
18 And a specter of a human continued and touched me and gave me strength. 18 And there touched me again as it were the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,

19  And said, Oh man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto you, be strong, yes, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for you have strengthened me.

וַיֹּ֜אמֶר אַל־תִּירָ֧א אִישׁ־חֲמֻדֹ֛ות שָׁלֹ֥ום לָ֖ךְ חֲזַ֣ק וַחֲזָ֑ק וּֽכְדַבְּרֹ֤ו עִמִּי֙ הִתְחַזַּ֔קְתִּי וָאֹ֥מְרָ֛ה יְדַבֵּ֥ר אֲדֹנִ֖י כִּ֥י חִזַּקְתָּֽנִי׃

19 καὶ εἶπέ μοι ἄνθρωπος ἐλεεινὸς εἶ, μὴ φοβοῦ, ὑγίαινε· ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε.
καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτὸν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἴσχυσα καὶ εἶπα λαλησάτω κύριός μου, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσέ 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 κύριός μου, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσάς με.
19 And he said to me, “You are a person shown mercy. Do not fear; be well. Be courageous and strong!” And when he spoke with me, I was strengthened and said, “Let my lord speak, for he has strengthened me.” 19 and said to me, Don’t fear, man greatly beloved: peace be to you, quit yourself like a man, and be strong. And when he had spoken with me, I received strength, and said, Let my lord speak; for you have strengthened me.

20  Then said he, Know you therefore I come unto you? 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.

וַיֹּ֗אמֶר הֲיָדַ֙עְתָּ֙ לָמָּה־בָּ֣אתִי אֵלֶ֔יךָ וְעַתָּ֣ה אָשׁ֔וּב לְהִלָּחֵ֖ם עִם־שַׂ֣ר פָּרָ֑ס וַאֲנִ֣י יֹוצֵ֔א וְהִנֵּ֥ה שַׂר־יָוָ֖ן בָּֽא׃

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.
20 καὶ εἶπεν, εἰ οἶδας, ἵνα τί ἦλθον πρὸς σέ;
καὶ νῦν ἐπιστρέψω τοῦ πολεμῆσαι μετὰ ἄρχοντος Περσῶν· καὶ ἐγὼ ἐξεπορευόμην, καὶ ἄρχων τῶν Ἑλλήνων ἤρχετο.
20 And he said to me, “Do you understand why I have come to you? And now I will return to contend with the general of the king of the Persians. And I was leaving, and lo, the commander of the Greeks was entering. 20 And he said, Know you, why I am come to you? and now I will return to fight with the prince of the Persians: and I was going in, and the prince of the Greeks came.

21  But I will show you what is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holds with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

אֲבָל֙ אַגִּ֣יד לְךָ֔ אֶת־הָרָשׁ֥וּם בִּכְתָ֖ב אֱמֶ֑ת וְאֵ֨ין אֶחָ֜ד מִתְחַזֵּ֤ק עִמִּי֙ עַל־אֵ֔לֶּה כִּ֥י אִם־מִיכָאֵ֖ל שַׂרְכֶֽם׃

21 καὶ μάλα ὑποδείξω σοὶ τὰ πρῶτα ἐν ἀπογραφῇ ἀληθείας, καὶ οὐθεὶς ἦν βοηθῶν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ ὑπὲρ τούτων ἀλλ᾿ Μιχαὴλ ἄγγελος· 21 ἀλλ᾿ ἀναγγελῶ σοὶ τὸ ἐντεταγμένον ἐν γραφῇ ἀληθείας, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν εἷς ἀντεχόμενος μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ περὶ τούτων, ἀλλ᾿ Μιχαὴλ ἄρχων ὑμῶν.
21 And the more I will explain to you the chief things that are in the register of truth. And there was no one with me who helped concerning these things except Michael, the mighty angel.” 21 But I will tell you what is ordained in the scripture of truth: and there is no one that holds with me in these matters but Michael your prince.
