Daniel 9:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Daniel’s Prayer

These things happened during the first year that Darius son of Ahasuerus[a] was king. Darius was a Mede by birth, but he was appointed to be the king of Babylon. During his first year as king, I was studying the Scriptures[b] and noticed in the Lord’s message to Jeremiah that 70 years would pass before Jerusalem would be rebuilt.

Then I turned to the Lord God. I prayed to him and asked him for help. I did not eat any food. I put ashes on my head and put on the clothes that showed I was sad.
