Daniel 9:1-3 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Daniel Prays for His People

In the first year of Darius son of Ahasuerus, who was of Median descent and who had been appointed king over the Babylonian empire— in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, came to understand from the sacred books that, according to the word of the Lord disclosed to the prophet Jeremiah, the years for the fulfilling of the desolation of Jerusalem were seventy in number. So I turned my attention to the Lord God to implore him by prayer and requests, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.
