Daniel 9:22-24 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee knowledge and understanding.

23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show thee, for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter and consider the vision.

24 Seventy [a]weeks are determined upon [b]thy people and upon thine holy city, to finish the wickedness, and to seal up [c]the sins, and to reconcile the iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.


  1. Daniel 9:24 He alludeth to Jeremiah’s prophecy: who prophesied that their captivity should be seventy years: but now God’s mercy should sevenfold exceed his judgment, which should be four hundred and ninety years, even to the coming of Christ, and so then it should continue forever.
  2. Daniel 9:24 Meaning, Daniel’s nation, over whom he was careful.
  3. Daniel 9:24 To show mercy and to put sin out of remembrance.
