Daniel 9:1-3 Living Bible (TLB)

It was now the first year of the reign of King Darius, the son of Ahasuerus. (Darius was a Mede but became king of the Chaldeans.) In that first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from the book of Jeremiah the prophet that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years.[a] So I earnestly pleaded with the Lord God to end our captivity and send us back to our own land.[b]

As I prayed, I fasted and wore rough sackcloth, and I sprinkled myself with ashes
