Daniel 10:6-8

10:6 His body resembled yellow jasper, 1  and his face had an appearance like lightning. His eyes were like blazing torches; 2  his arms and feet had the gleam of polished bronze. His voice 3  thundered forth like the sound of a large crowd.

10:7 Only I, Daniel, saw the vision; the men who were with me did not see it. 4  On the contrary, they were overcome with fright 5  and ran away to hide. 10:8 I alone was left to see this great vision. My strength drained from 6  me, and my vigor disappeared; 7  I was without energy. 8 

1 tn The Hebrew word translated “yellow jasper” is תַּרשִׁישׁ (tarshish); it appears to be a semiprecious stone, but its exact identity is somewhat uncertain. It may be the yellow jasper, although this is conjectural. Cf. NAB, NIV “chrysolite”; NASB, NRSV “beryl.”

2 tn Heb “torches of fire.”

3 tn Heb “The sound of his words” (cf. v. 9).

4 tn Heb “the vision.”

5 tn Heb “great trembling fell on them.”

6 tn Heb “did not remain in.”

7 tn Heb “was changed upon me for ruin.”

8 tn Heb “strength.”
