Daniel 9:1-3 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

Daniel Prays to the Lord

It was the first year that Darius was king of Babylon. He was from Media and was the son of Xerxes. In that year I learned from the Scriptures that Jerusalem would remain destroyed for 70 years. That was what the Lord had told Jeremiah the prophet. So I prayed to the Lord God. I begged him. I made many appeals to him. I didn’t eat anything. I put on the rough clothing people wear when they’re sad. And I sat down in ashes.
