because we have sinned against thee.

I) 'To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

10 k Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Loud our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

11 Yea, 'all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the "'law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

12 And he hath "confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: 0 for under the whole heaven bath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

18 Pas it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: ".yet tmade we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

14 Therefore hath the Lord 'watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for 'the Lord our God ft righteous in all his works which he doeth: 'for we obeyed not his voic e.

15 And now, O Lord our God, "that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast t gotten thee 1 renown, as at this day; rwe have sinned, we have done wickedly.

10 \ O Lord, 1 according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, ■thy holy mountain: because for our sins, band for the iniquities of our fathers, c Jerusalem and thy people *art Intuitu: a reproach to all that are about us.

17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications,»and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary 'that is desolate, sfor the Lord's sake.

| IS hO my God, incline thine

ear, and hear; open thine eyes, 'and behold our desolations, and the city k t which is called by thy name: for we do not tpresent our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies. 1!) O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, 1 for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

20 1 mAnd while I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God;

21 Yea, while I vas speaking In prayer, even the man "Gabriel, whom' I had seen in the vision at the beginning, beinfr caused to fly tswiftly, "touched me Pabout the time of the evening oblation.

1 Daniel having hmnhleil himself seeth a i virion. 10 living trovtded with fear he ia comforted by the angel.

IN the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was rej vealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; b and 'the thing was true, c but the time appointed was tlong: and ''he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.

2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three t full weeks.

3 I ate no t pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my

I mouth, neither did I anoint my-
l, self at all, till three whole weeks
i were fulfilled.

'4 And in the four and twentieth
■ day of the first month, as I was
| liv the side of the great river,
1 which is f Hiddekcl;
5 Then si lifted up mine eyes,
and looked, and behold ta cer-
tain man clothed in linen, whose
'loins were girded with kfiue gold
, of Uphaz:

i 6 Ilis body also was 'like the
beryl, and his face "as the ap-
pearance of lightning, "and his
eyes as lamps of fire, and his
arms "and his feet like in colour
to polished brass, Pand the voice
of his words like the voice of a
multitude.

? And I Daniel I alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, i so that they fled to hide them: selves.

I 8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, r and there I remained no strength in me: for I my 11 comeliness was turned in

13 Then said he unto me, ,Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, zthy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.

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

14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people cin the latter days: dfor yet the vision is for many days.

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

lb' And, behold, 'one like the u.1.1 similitude of the sons of men' * touched my lips: then I opened \ *>er. 10 my mouth, and spake, and said j Jer'L unto him that stood before me, | O my lord, by the vision hmyl.rer.8. sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.

17 For how can I the servant of ] 1 Or. ttii this my lord talk with this my W^SSc lord? for as for me, straightway

there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.

18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appear-1 ance of a man, and he strength- j ened me,

19 1 And said, O man greatly be-; 1 ver. 11. loved, k fear not: peace be unto ; i Jude. 6.23. thee; be strong, yea, be strong.'

CHAPTER XI.

1 The overthrow of Persia by the king of Grecia. 5 Leagues and ronfttrts between j the kings of the wttth and of the north. 30 The titration and tyranny of the Haitians.

ALSO I 'in the first year of b Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand

I up yet three kings in Persia; and
the fourth shall be far richer
than they all: and by his strength
through Ilia riches he shall stir
'up all against the realm of
. Grecia.

3 And ca mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and d do according to his will.

4 And when he shall stand up, ehis kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, 'nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others besides those.

5 If And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

6 And in the end of years they tshall join themselves together; for the king's- daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make tan agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and I he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.

7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up II in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the

fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:

8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with t their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.

9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shallI return into his own land.

10 But his sons I shall be stirred ' lor. up, and shall assemble a multi-. tude of great forces: and oneshall certainly come, sand over- iij.s.8. How, and pass through: I then 'j',', shall he return, and be stirred timiih'be up, even to his fortress. j JjJISI"*

11 And the king of the south 1 bver.7. shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and tight with

him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come I t after certain years with a great army and with much riches.

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also t the ; t Heb. Me robbers of thy people shall exalt j ffiXSn. themselves to establish the vi-'

18 After this shall he turn his! face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince t for his own behalf shall cause tthe reproach ottered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.

10 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: hut he shall stumble and fall, "and not be found.

20 Then shall stand up I in his estate ta raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in t anger, nor in battle.

21 And I in his estate 0 shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall conic in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

22 PAnd with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; iyea, also the prince of the covenant.

23 And after the league made with him rhe shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and j shall become strong with a small people.

24 He shall enter I peaceably | even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that "which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yrn, and he shall t forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; hut lie shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.

26 Tea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall •overflow: and many shall fall down slain.

27 And both these kings' thearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for 'yet the end shall he at the time appointed.

28 Then shall he return into his

land with great riches; and "his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and lie shall do explaits, and return to his own land.

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; *but it shall not be as the former, r or as the latter.

30 *I * For the ships of (Jhittim shall come against him: therefore ho shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation 'against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, "and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sarrijlre, and they shall place the abomination that Imaketh desolate.

32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he I corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall lie strong, and do exploits.

33 "And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: dyet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

34 Now when they BhiUl fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

85 And stime of them of understanding shall fall, Mo try I them, and to purge, and to make them white, 'ei'rii to the time of the end: e because it is yet for a time appointed.

30 And the king "shall do according to his will; mid he shall 'exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things * against the God of gods, and shall prosper 'till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, ">nor the desire of women, "nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

there shall be a time of trouble,

was a nation even to that same
time: and at that time thy peo-

4 "But thou, O Daniel, "shut up the words, and seal the book, even to "the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

5 IT Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the thank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank "of the river.

6 And one said to v the man clothed in linen, which vas I upon the waters of the river, i How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?

7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he rheld up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him "that liveth for ever, 'that it sliall be for a time, times, and la half; "and when ho shall have accomplished to scatter the power of "the holy people, all these thing* shall be finished.

8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed y till the time of the end.

10 1 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; M>ut the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but bthe wise sliall understand.

11 And from the time 'thai the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and tthe abomination that hnakcth desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
