10:11 He said to me, “Daniel, you are of great value. 1 Understand the words that I am about to 2 speak to you. So stand up, 3 for I have now been sent to you.” When he said this 4 to me, I stood up shaking. 10:12 Then he said to me, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel, for from the very first day you applied your mind 5 to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard. I have come in response to your words.
10:19 He said to me, “Don’t be afraid, you who are valued. 6 Peace be to you! Be strong! Be really strong!” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened. I said, “Sir, you may speak now, 7 for you have given me strength.”
