但以理書 6:10-28 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
10 但以理知道這文告簽署了以後，就上到自己家裡樓頂上的房間，這房間的窗戶朝向耶路撒冷開著；他一日三次雙膝跪下，在他的 神面前禱告稱謝，像往日一樣。 11 那些人相約前來，看見但以理在他的 神面前祈禱懇求。 12 他們就來到王面前，提起王的禁令，說：“你豈不是簽署了禁令，無論何人，在三十天內，王啊！除了向你以外，若向任何神或任何人求甚麼，就必扔在獅子坑中？”王回答說：“確有此事。按照瑪代和波斯的律法，這樣的禁令是不能廢除的。” 13 於是他們對王說：“王啊，在被擄的猶大人中的但以理不理會你的命令，也不理會你簽署的禁令，竟仍一日三次向他的 神祈求。” 14 王聽見了這話，就非常愁煩；他定意要搭救但以理，直到日落的時候，他還在設法營救但以理。 15 那些人就相約前來見王，對他說：“王啊，你該知道，根據瑪代和波斯的律法，王所立的禁令和法例，都是不能更改的。”
16 於是王下令，人就把但以理帶來，扔在獅子坑中。王對但以理說：“你常常事奉的 神，他必搭救你！” 17 有人搬了一塊石頭，放在坑口，王又蓋上自己的印鑒和眾大臣的印鑒，使懲辦但以理的事不得更改。 18 王回到宮裡，整夜沒有吃東西，也不要任何娛樂解悶，並且睡不著覺。
19 次日黎明，天一亮，王就起來，急忙到獅子坑那裡去。 20 他走近坑邊的時候，就用哀痛的聲音呼叫但以理，對但以理說：“永活 神的僕人但以理啊！你常常事奉的 神能搭救你脫離獅子嗎？”
21 但以理對王說：“願王萬歲！ 22 我的 神差遣了他的使者，封住獅子的口，使牠們沒有傷害我，因為我在 神面前是清白的；王啊！在你面前我也沒有作過任何錯事。” 23 王就非常高興，吩咐人把但以理從坑裡拉上來。於是但以理從坑裡被拉上來，他身上一點損傷也沒有，因為他信靠他的 神。
25 後來大利烏王寫信給住在全地的各國、各族和說各種語言的人，說：“願你們大享平安！26 現在我下令，我所統治的全國人民都要在但以理的 神面前戰兢恐懼。
但以理书 10: 1-21 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
2 那時，我但以理悲傷了三個星期。 3 美味的食物我沒有吃，肉和酒沒有入我的口，我也沒有用膏油抹身，整整三個星期。
4 正月二十四日，我在底格里斯大河邊的時候， 5 我舉目觀看，看見有一個人身穿細麻衣，腰束烏法純金的帶。 6 他的身像水蒼玉，面貌像閃電的樣子，眼睛像火把，手臂和腿像擦亮的銅那麼閃耀，說話的聲音像群眾喊叫的聲音。 7 獨有我但以理看見這異象，那些和我在一起的人都沒有看見，不過他們卻大大驚慌，逃跑躲藏起來了。 8 因此，只有我一人留下來；我看見了這大異象，就全身無力，臉色大變，一點力氣都沒有。 9 我卻仍聽見他說話的聲音；我一聽見他說話的聲音，就沉睡了，臉伏在地。
10 忽然有一隻手按在我身上，使我用膝和手掌勉強支持著要站起來。 11 他對我說：“大蒙眷愛的但以理啊！你應當留意我要對你說的話。你只管站起來，因為我現在奉差遣到你這裡來。”他和我說這話的時候，我就戰戰兢兢地站起來。 12 他又對我說：“但以理啊！不要懼怕，因為自從你第一天決心要明白這些事，又在你的 神面前謙卑自己，你禱告的話已蒙垂聽了；我就是因你禱告的話而來的。 13 但波斯國的護衛天使攔阻我二十一天；後來有護衛天使長中的一位米迦勒來幫助我，我就留他在那裡（按照《馬索拉文本》，“我就留他在那裡”作“我就被留在那裡”；現參照《七十士譯本》翻譯），和波斯眾王在一起。 14 現在我來是要使你明白日後所要發生在你的同胞身上的事，因為這異象是關於將來許多的年日的。” 15 他和我說這些話的時候，我就臉伏在地，默默無聲。 16 忽然有一位像人的，摸我的嘴唇，我就開口和那站在我面前的交談，說：“我主啊！因著這異象，我非常痛苦，毫無氣力。 17 我主的僕人怎能和我主說話呢？我現在全身無力，沒有氣息。”
18 那位像人的再摸我，使我有力量。 19 他說：“大蒙眷愛的人哪！不要懼怕，願你平安，你要大大剛強。”他和我說話的時候，我就剛強起來；於是我說：“我主請說，因為你剛強了我。” 20 他說：“現在我要回去和波斯的護衛天使作戰；我一離去，希臘的護衛天使就要來。但你知道我為甚麼到你這裡來嗎？ 21 我來是要把那記錄在真理書上的事告訴你。除了你們的護衛天使米迦勒之外，沒有一個幫助我，和我一起抵擋他們。”
但以理书 11:2-45 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
2 現在我要把真理告訴你。看哪！在波斯還有三個王要興起；第四個王必非常富有，遠超過所有的王；他因富足成為強盛以後，就必煽動眾民攻擊希臘國。 3 後來必有一個英勇的王興起，他必執掌大權，任意而行。 4 他興起的時候，他的國就破裂，向天的四方（“四方”原文作“四風”）分開，卻不歸給他的後代，國勢也不及他掌權的時候；因為他的國必被拔出，歸給他後代以外的人。
5 “南方的王必強盛，他的將領中必有一個比他更強盛的，這人必掌權，他的權勢很大。6 過了多年，南方王的女兒必到北方王那裡去修好，他們必互相結盟。但這女子的勢力必存留不住；王和他的勢力也站立不住；她連同那些帶她來的、那生她的，和那幫助她的，都被交出處死。 7 但這女子的本家（“本家”原文作“根”）必另有一個兒子（“兒子”原文作“枝子”）興起，繼承父位；他必來攻擊北方王的軍隊，進入北方王的堡壘，攻打他們，而且得勝。 8 他又把他們的神像、鑄成的偶像，連同金銀的寶器，都一起擄掠到了埃及去。此後數年之久，他不再去攻擊北方王。 9 後來北方王必侵入南方王的國土，然後撤退歸回本國。
10 “北方王的眾子必備戰，招集大軍；這大軍前進，如洪水氾濫，橫掃南方王的國土；之後他又再去爭戰，直到南方王的堡壘。 11 南方王必發大怒，出來和北方王交戰；北方王必擺列大軍，但這大軍必交在南方王的手裡。 12 這大軍被掃除以後，南方王就心高氣傲；他雖然使千萬人倒斃，他的勝利卻不能持久。 13 北方王必再招聚大軍，比先前的更多；時機成熟的時候（“時機成熟的時候”直譯是“過了一些時候，一些年”），他就率領裝備好了的大軍而來。
14 “那時，必有許多人起來攻擊南方王，並且你同胞中的強暴人必挺身而起，要使那異象應驗，但他們必失敗。 15 北方王必來，堆土築壘攻取堅固城。南方的軍力必抵擋不住，甚至精銳的部隊也無力抵抗。 16 那來攻擊南方王的，必任意而行；沒有人能在他面前站立得住；他必站在那榮美之地，手握毀壞之權。 17 他決意傾全國的力量而來，但他先和南方王修好，把自己的女兒給南方王為妻，好毀滅南國；可是他的計劃沒有成功，他自己也得不到甚麼好處。 18 後來他必轉向沿海的島嶼，奪取了許多海島。但有一個將領要制止他的驕橫，並且使他的驕橫歸回他身上。 19 於是他轉向自己國中的堡壘，終於絆跌仆倒，不再存在了。
20 “那時，必有一個人興起來代替他；這人要派一個橫征暴斂的人，為了王國的榮華，走遍全地；可是不多幾日，這人就必被毀滅，不是因為忿怒，也不是因為戰爭。 21 必另有一個卑鄙的人興起來代替他；雖然人未曾把王國的尊榮給這人，這人卻乘人不備的時候來到，用奉承的話奪得了王國。 22 必有無數的軍兵在他面前像洪水沖沒，並且潰敗；立約的君也必這樣。 23 他結盟以後，就必行詭詐；他雖然只有少數的國民，卻漸漸強盛起來。 24 他必乘人不備的時候，侵入省內最富庶的地區，行他列祖和他列祖的祖先所未曾行過的；他把擄掠之物和財物分給自己的部屬；又必設下計謀攻打堡壘，只是這都是暫時的。 25 他必竭盡己力，鼓起勇氣，率領大軍攻擊南方王；南方王也必帶領極強大的軍隊奮起還擊，卻抵擋不住，因為有人設下計謀陷害南方王。 26 那些吃王膳的必毀滅他；他的軍隊必被沖沒，受重傷而倒斃的很多。 27 至於那兩個王，他們都存心不良；他們同桌吃飯，也彼此說謊；他們的陰謀卻不成功，因為要到了指定的時候，結局才會來到。
29 “到了指定的時候，他必回來，再侵入南方的王國，不過這次的情況卻不像前一次。 30 因為基提的戰船必來攻擊他，他就喪膽而回；他又惱恨聖約，任意而行；他必回來，聽取那些背棄聖約的人的建議。 31 他的軍隊必起來，褻瀆聖殿，就是那堡壘，廢除常獻祭，又在殿裡設立了那使地荒涼的可憎的像。 32 那些作惡違背聖約的人，他必用奉承的話敗壞他們；但認識 神的人民，必剛強行事。 33 民中的智慧人必使許多人明白是非；但他們必有很多日子倒在刀劍之下，或被火燒，或被擄去，或被搶掠。 34 他們仆倒的時候，必得到一些援助，必有許多人用奉承的話要和他們聯盟。 35 智慧人中有些仆倒的，為要鍛煉他們，潔淨他們，使他們成為雪白，直到末了，因為要到了指定的時候，結局才會來到。
36 “那王必任意而行，自高自大，超過所有的神，又說一些怪誕的話攻擊萬神之 神。他必行事順利，直到 神的忿怒完畢；因為所定的事必會實現。 37 他必不尊重他列祖所拜的神，也不尊重婦女所愛慕的神，無論甚麼神他都不尊重，因為他必自大，高過一切。 38 他倒要敬拜堡壘的神，用金銀寶石和各樣珍寶去敬拜他列祖所不認識的神。 39 他必得著外族神的幫助，攻破堅固的堡壘；凡承認他的，他必使他們大得尊榮，又使他們管轄許多人，並且把土地分給他們作賞賜。
40 “到了末期，南方王要和他交戰；北方王必帶著戰車、騎兵和大批戰船，像暴風一般來到他那裡；他必侵入列國，如洪水氾濫，橫掃而過。 41 他也必侵入那榮美之地；必有許多國傾覆；但那些以東人、摩押人和亞捫人的首領，必被拯救脫離他的手。 42 他必伸手攻擊列國，埃及地也不能逃脫。 43 他必掌管埃及的金銀寶藏和一切珍寶；呂彼亞人和古實人都必追隨他。 44 但從東方和北方必有消息傳來，使他驚惶，他就在烈怒之下出兵，要把許多人殺盡滅絕。 45 他必在海和榮美的聖山之間支搭如宮殿一般的帳幕；然而他們的結局來到，必沒有人能幫助他。”
Daniel 6:10-28 American Standard Version (ASV)
10 And when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house (now his windows were open in his chamber toward Jerusalem); and he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.11 Then these men assembled together, and found Daniel making petition and supplication before his God. 12 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king’s interdict: Hast thou not signed an interdict, that every man that shall make petition unto any god or man within thirty days, save unto thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which [a]altereth not. 13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, who is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the interdict that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day. 14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to rescue him. 15 Then these men assembled together unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians, that no interdict nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.
16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. 17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; [b]that nothing might be changed concerning Daniel. 18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting; neither were [c]instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep fled from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.20 And when he came near unto the den to Daniel, he cried with a lamentable voice; the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? 21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. 22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not hurt me; forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. 23 Then was the king exceeding glad, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he had trusted in his God.
24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men that had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces, before they came to the bottom of the den.
25 Then king Darius wrote unto all the peoples, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied unto you. 26 I make a decree, that in all the dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel; for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, And his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed; and his dominion shall be even unto the end. 27 He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
Daniel 10: 1-21 American Standard Version (ASV)
10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, even a great warfare: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision. 2 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three whole weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine into my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. 4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is [a]Hiddekel, 5 I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, a man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with pure gold of Uphaz: 6 his body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as flaming torches, and his arms and his feet like unto burnished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. 7 And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision; for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, and they fled to hide themselves. 8 So I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me; for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. 9 Yet heard I the voice of his words; and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I fallen into a deep sleep on my face, with my face toward the ground.
10 And, behold, a hand touched me, which [b]set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. 11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, thou man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright; for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. 12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel; for from the first day that thou didst set thy heart to understand, and to humble thyself before thy God, thy words were heard: and I am come for thy words’ sake. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days; but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I [c]remained there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for many days. 15 And when he had spoken unto me according to these words, I set my face toward the ground, and was dumb. 16 And, behold, one in the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by reason of the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I retain no strength. 17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither was there breath left in me.
18 Then there touched me again one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me. 19 And he said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he spake unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. 20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I am come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I go forth, lo, the prince of [d]Greece shall come. 21 But I will tell thee that which is inscribed in the writing of truth: and there is none that [e]holdeth with me [f]against these, but Michael your prince.
Daniel 11:2-45 American Standard Version (ASV)
2 And now will I show thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and when he is waxed strong through his riches, [a]he shall stir up all against the realm of [b]Greece. 3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion wherewith he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others besides these.
5 And the king of the south [c]shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion. 6 And at the end of years they shall join themselves together; and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make [d]an agreement: but she shall not retain the strength of her arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm; but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in those times.
7 But out of a shoot from her roots shall one stand up in his [e]place, who shall come[f]unto the army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail. 8 And also their gods, with their [g]molten images, andwith their goodly vessels of silver and of gold, shall he carry captive into Egypt; and he shall [h]refrain some years from the king of the north. 9 And he shall come into the realm of the king of the south, but he shall return into his own land.
10 And his sons shall war, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces, [i]which shall come on, and overflow, and pass through; and [j]they shall return and war, even to his fortress. 11 And the king of the south shall be moved with anger, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north; and he shall set forth a great multitude, and the multitude shall be given into his hand. 12 And the multitude shall [k]be lifted up, and his heart shall be exalted; and he shall cast down tens of thousands, but he shall not prevail. 13 And the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former; and he shall come on at the end of the times, even [l]of years, with a great army and with much substance. 14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the children of the violent among thy people shall lift themselves up to establish the vision; but they shall fall. 15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mound, and take [m]a well-fortified city: and the forces of the south shall not stand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to stand.16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the glorious land, and in his hand shall be destruction. 17 And he shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and with him [n]equitable conditions; and he shall perform them: and he shall give him the daughter of women, [o]to corrupt her; but [p]she shall not stand, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he turn his face unto the [q]isles, and shall take many: but a [r]prince shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; yea, moreover, he shall cause his reproach to turn upon him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fortresses of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found.
20 Then shall stand up in his place one that shall cause an exactor to pass through the glory of the kingdom; but within few days he shall be [s]destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. 21 And in his [t]place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. 22 And the overwhelming forces shall be overwhelmed from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of [u]the covenant. 23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; for he shall come up, and shall become strong, with a small people. 24 In time of security shall he come even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them prey, and spoil, and substance: yea, he shall devise his devices against the strongholds, even for a time. 25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall war in battle with an exceeding great and mighty army; but he shall not stand; for they shall devise devices against him. 26 Yea, they that eat of his dainties shall[v]destroy him, and his army shall overflow; and many shall fall down slain. 27 And as for both these kings, their hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table: but it shall not prosper; for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.
28 Then shall he return into his land with great substance; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do his pleasure, and return to his own land. 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter time as it was in the former. 30 For ships of Kittim shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and shall return, and have indignation against the holy covenant, and shall dohis pleasure: he shall even return, and have regard unto them that forsake the holy covenant. 31 And forces shall stand on his part, and they shall profane the sanctuary, even the fortress, and shall take away the continual burnt-offering, and they shall set up the abomination that maketh desolate. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he [w]pervert by flatteries; but the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. 33 And [x]they that are wise among the people shall instruct many; yet they shall fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by spoil, many days. 34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help; but many shall join themselves unto them with flatteries. 35 And some of [y]them that are wise shall fall, to refine them, and to purify, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed.
36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods; and he shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done. 37 Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his [z]place shall he honor the god of fortresses; and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god: [aa]whosoever acknowledgeth him[ab]he will increase with glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price.
40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [ac]contend with him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass through. 41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries; and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. 44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him; and he shall go forth with great fury to destroy and [ad]utterly to sweep away many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace [ae]between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
