In the first year of Dareyawesh the son of Ahashwerosh, of the seed of the Medes, who was set up as sovereign over the reign of the Kasdim – in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, observed from the Scriptures the number of the years, according to the word of YHWH given to Yirmeyah the prophet, for the completion of the wastes of Yerushalayim would be seventy years.
while I was still speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, came close to me, in swift flight about the time of the evening offering. And he made me understand, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to make you wise concerning understanding. “At the beginning of your supplications a word went out, and I have come to make it known, for you are greatly appreciated. So consider the word and understand the vision:
"Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your set-apart city, to put an end to the transgression, and to seal up sins, and to cover crookedness, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Most Set-apart.
"Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yerushalayim until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction. "And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught.
And the Yehudim answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You are doing these?” YHWSO answered and said to them, “Destroy this Dwelling Place [temple], and in three days I shall raise it.” Then the Yehudim said, “It took forty-six years to build this Dwelling Place [temple], and You are going to raise it in three days?” But He spoke about the Dwelling Place [temple] of His body.
The seventieth week
“And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end. "And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. And on the wing of abominations he shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed is poured out on the one who lays waste."
