Daniel 9:2

Context
9:2 in the first year of his reign 1  I, Daniel, came to understand from the sacred books 2  that, according to the word of the LORD 3  disclosed to the prophet Jeremiah, the years for the fulfilling of the desolation of Jerusalem 4  were seventy in number.

1 tc This phrase, repeated from v. 1, is absent in Theodotion.

2 tn The Hebrew text has “books”; the word “sacred” has been added in the translation to clarify that it is Scriptures that are referred to.

3 sn The tetragrammaton (the four Hebrew letters which constitute the divine Name, YHWH) appears eight times in this chapter, and nowhere else in the book of Daniel.
