Daniel 10:16-19

10:16 Then 1  one who appeared to be a human being 2  was touching my lips. I opened my mouth and started to speak, saying to the one who was standing before me, “Sir, 3  due to the vision, anxiety has gripped me and I have no strength. 10:17 How, sir, am I able to speak with you? 4  My strength is gone, 5  and I am breathless.” 10:18 Then the one who appeared to be a human being touched me again 6  and strengthened me. 10:19 He said to me, “Don’t be afraid, you who are valued. 7  Peace be to you! Be strong! Be really strong!” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened. I said, “Sir, you may speak now, 8  for you have given me strength.”

4 tn Heb “How is the servant of this my lord able to speak with this my lord?”

5 tn Heb “does not stand.”
