Daniel 9:17-19

Context

9:17 “So now, our God, accept 1  the prayer and requests of your servant, and show favor to 2  your devastated sanctuary for your own sake. 3  9:18 Listen attentively, 4  my God, and hear! Open your eyes and look on our desolated ruins 5  and the city called by your name. 6  For it is not because of our own righteous deeds that we are praying to you, 7  but because your compassion is abundant. 9:19 O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, pay attention, and act! Don’t delay, for your own sake, O my God! For your city and your people are called by your name.” 8
