Daniel 9:18-19

Context
9:18 Listen attentively, 1  my God, and hear! Open your eyes and look on our desolated ruins 2  and the city called by your name. 3  For it is not because of our own righteous deeds that we are praying to you, 4  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.” 5 

1 tn Heb “turn your ear.”

2 tn Heb “desolations.” The term refers here to the ruined condition of Judah’s towns.

3 tn Heb “over which your name is called.” Cf. v. 19. This expression implies that God is the owner of his city, Jerusalem. Note the use of the idiom in 2 Sam 12:28; Isa 4:1; Amos 9:12.

4 tn Heb “praying our supplications before you.”
