:4 "Now on the twenty fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, that is, the Ti'gris,
:5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of U'phaz!
:6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.
:7 And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision; but a great terror fell upon them, so that they fled and hid themselves.
:8 Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength,
:9 Yet I heard the sound of his words; and while I heard the sound of his words I was in a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground..."
:5 "Then, I Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.
:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, 'How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?'
:7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
:8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, 'My Lord, what shall be the end of these things?'
:9 And he said, 'Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end'..."
Verses 10: 4-9 sound amazingly close to the account given in Rev. 1:13-17, where John first meets Jesus in the opening vision of the Book of Revelation. Dan. 12:7, is also very close to the words uttered by the angel in Rev. 10:5-6.
