Daniel 10:21

10:21 However, I will first tell you what is written in a dependable book. (There is no one who strengthens me against these princes, except Michael your prince.

tn Heb “a book of truth.” Several English versions treat this as a title of some sort (cf. NIV, NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT), although the NAB’s rendering “the truthful book” regards “truth” as an attributive adjective, as does the present translation.

tn The word “princes” is supplied for clarity.

tn The pronoun is plural in Hebrew, suggesting that Michael is the angelic prince of Daniel and his people.
