10:8 I alone was left to see this great vision. My strength drained from 1 me, and my vigor disappeared; 2 I was without energy. 3 10:9 I listened to his voice, 4 and as I did so 5 I fell into a trance-like sleep with my face to the ground.
10:17 How, sir, am I able to speak with you? 6 My strength is gone, 7 and I am breathless.” 10:18 Then the one who appeared to be a human being touched me again 8 and strengthened me. 10:19 He said to me, “Don’t be afraid, you who are valued. 9 Peace be to you! Be strong! Be really strong!” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened. I said, “Sir, you may speak now, 10 for you have given me strength.”
