Some few words more were uttered, as a Propheticall admonition unto humility and meekneſſe, diſſolving within theſe dayes, former ambiguity.

Eleanor Avedelev Reveale O Daniel. VII. Chap.In the firſt yeere of Belſhacer, King of Babylon, Daniel had dreames and viſions, and hee wrote the dreame and declared the ſumme of the matters. I ſaw in my viſions by night, and behold the fower windes of heaven ſtrove upon the great ſea, and fower great Beaſtes came up from the ſea, divers one from another &c.
Windes are the ſpirit, purgeth all things, the ſwelling ſea are the rebellious nations, of the fower parts of the earth, looſed windes, threating a wracke, diſſolution of the world.
Fower Beaſts times and ſeaſons diſplaying.
The firſt as a Lyon, Revel. beginneth from the birth of Jeſus Chriſt, perſecuted by the Dragon, Lyon of the Tribe of Juda, unto the watchfull ſhepheards in the field proclaimed by Angells, wiſe men by a ſtarre, by no inferior Prophet cryed in the wilderneſſe, to pull of his ſhoow, yet unworthy, in triumph received with Hoſanna, in the city, to witneſſe whoſe Baptiſme the holy Ghoſt deſcended, was by the Roman Monarchie (over all the world ſpreading her eagles winges) put to death, roote and ſeed of David, is recorded amongſt theſe kings, King of kings, &c. whoſe enemies ſhall feele his hand, and his right hand, &c. Pſalm 21.A2 The 006 A2v
The ſecond beaſt like a Beare, and ſtood upon the one ſide, ſignifying their election by voyces, and power of the Senat, had three ribbs in the mouth betweene the teeth, the approximately 3 lettersflawed-reproduction to this. And they ſaid unto him, ariſe and devoure much fleſh, are three hundred yeeres, armes of the heathen Romane devouring times, whoſe raging raigne laſted ſo longe. In the infancy of which Empire, the maſſacred innocents, & Meſſiah ſuffered, Jeruſalem was deſtroyed, that in Rome might be found the blood of Prophets & Saints, and of all that were ſlaine upon the earth, dronken with the blood of Martyrs of Jesus.
The third Beaſt like a Leopard, that had upon the backe of it fower winges, are fower hundred yeeres, beginning with the Beaſt, whoſe deadly wound was healed, raigne of Conſtantine the Great, ſo ſoone after ſpotted with Arrian leporiſme, bearing fower heads, ſhewing the diviſion of the Empire into ſo many parts when hee ſtood up; held then too large and great for the government of one man.
The laſt Beaſt, the fourth, dreadfull, terrible, and ſtrong exceedingly; had yron teeth, devoured & bracke in pieces, and ſtamped the reſidue with the feet thereof. Divers from all the Beaſts before it, is Eccleſiaſtice Tyranny, pride of Prelats drawn from head to foote; had tenn hornes, ſhewing Antiquity of Antichriſt, ſo many hundred yeeres, till the Ancient of dayes did ſit.
The hornes farther conſidered (mother of harlots her coate) amongſt which came up another little horne, before whom three of the firſt were pluckt up by the rootes; in this horne were eyes like the eyes of a man (watchfull in his owne behalfe) and a mouth (of an ungratefull ghueſt) ſpeaking preſumtious things. The tenn Kings horns riſing out of the head of the Beaſt, to know the trueth of them. The firſt Charles the Great, ſtiled Chriſtianißimi Romanorum Imperatoris, the whole race of Childric pulled up by the rootes made Rome for him, about a thouſandſand 007 A3r ſand yeeres ſince, abſolute Monarche of the Empire and all the dependances northward, for fower generations. The reſidue Spaniſh horns, ſince Charles the fiſtfirſt in defence of Romes (devourſed ſpowſe) no little champions.
The little horne, more ſtoute then his fellowes, whoſe mouth or language bewrayeth them, are the united French and Sweden forces, ſlaying the Antichriſtian Beaſt, and giving his body to the burning flame, concerning the other Beaſts, though they injoyed their lines; had their dominion taken away, the reſidue ſtamped by Rome, under his feete, this little horne excepted.
Laſtly ſheweth the reſtoration of the kingdome of Chriſt, before the end of the world, and hee gave him dominion and honor, and a Kingdome, that all people, nations, languages, ſhould ſerve him, his dominion is an everlaſting Dominion, and ſhall never be taken away, and his Kingdome ſhall Antichriſt no more deſtroy.
The curſ’t Beaſt hath a ſhorte horne, I beheld and the ſame horne made warre with the Saints, and prevailed againſt them, but the ancient of dayes came &c. the hayre of whoſe head like pure wolle, ſheweth his dayes infinite to be accounted, and the Kingdome, and the Dominion, and the greatneſſe of the Kingdome &c. And all powers ſhall ſerve & obey him. This is the end of the matter, and the contents of that which followeth.
Chapt. VII.In the firſt yeere of Belſhazzar King of Babel, Daniel ſaw a dream, and there were viſions in his head, upon his bedde: then he wrote the dreame, and the declared the ſumme of the matter. 2 Daniel ſpake and ſaid, I ſaw in my viſion by night, & behold, the foure windes of the heaven ſtrove upon In the dayes of Noah to frame a new the microcoſme, a hundred and twenty yeeres the ſpirit of God did ſtrive no longer reſted as it were. the great ſea: 3 And foure great beaſtes came up from the The nativity or riſing of theſe fower beaſts, or Kings upon recorde one and twenty hundred yeeres compleat, added unto the age of the World before, maketh a weeke of ſix thouſand yeeres current. ſea one divers from another. 4 The firſt was a lion, Sheweth when perſecutiōperſecution for the Word began, the Ußher voyce leading the waye, John beheaded for the word of God, firſt witneße of Jeſus, worſhipped not the beaſt nor his image Herod, whoſe dauncing woman her picture is taken arrayed ſo in purple and pearle, in her hãdhand a cup of gold &c. and had eagels wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were pluckt off, and it was lifted up from the earth, and ſet upon his feet as a man, and a mans heart was given him. 5 And behold, another beaſt which was the ſecond, was like a beare, Called ten perſecutions, continuing three hundred yeeres, firſt combat fought againſt the Martyrs of Jeſus by the reed Dragon with ſevẽſeven heads, whoſe crownes mount unto Romes foundation or Kings. & ſtood upon the one ſide: and he had three ribs in his mouth betweene his teeth, and they ſaid thus unto him, Ariſe, and devoure much fleſh. 6 After this, I beheld, and loe, there was another like a leopard, The mungrell beaſt ſpoted with Arrian hereſie ſo lately healed, ſignifying fower hundred yeeres his being on the wing. which had upon his backe foure wings of a foule: the beaſt had alſo foure heads, and dominion was given him. 7 After this, I ſaw in the viſions by night, and behold, the fourth beaſt Fourth beaſt (Antichriſt) having ſerved his apprentiſhip of ſeven hundred yeeres, is free of the great city, ſetteth up for himſelf ten horns his ſigne, yet not ſo groſely deceiving the World, till a thouſand yeeres were fullfilled. was fearefull and terrible and very ſtrong. It had great yron teeth: it devoured & brake in pieces, and ſtamped the reſidue under his feet: and it was unlike to the beaſts that were before it: for it had ten hornes. 8 As I conſidered the hornes, beholde, there B came 010 B1v came up among them another little horne, before whom there were three of the firſt hornes pluckt away: and behold, in his borne were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth ſpeaking preſumptuous things. 9 I beheld till the thrones were ſet up, and the Ancient of dayes did ſit, whoſe garment was white as ſnow, and the haire of his head like the pure wooll: his throne was like the fiery flame and his wheeles, as burning fire. 10 A fierie ſtreame iſſued, and came foorth from before him: thouſand thouſands miniſtred unto him, and ten thouſand thouſands ſtood before him: the judgement was ſet, and the bookes opened. 11 Then I beheld, becauſe of the voyce of the preſumptuous words which the horne ſpake: I beheld, even till the beaſt was ſlaine, and his body deſtroyed, and given to the burning fire. 12 As concerning the other beaſts, they had taken away their dominion: yet their lives were prolonged for a certaine time and ſeaſon. 13 As I beheld in viſions by night, behold, one like the ſonne of man came in the cloudes of heaven, and approched unto the Ancient of dayes, and they brought him before him. 14 And he gave him dominion, and honour, and a kingdome, that all people, nations and languages ſhould ſerve him: his dominion is an everlaſting dominion, which ſhall never be taken away: and his dominion ſhall never be deſtroyed. 15 I Daniel was troubled in my ſpirit, in the middes 011 B2r middes of my body, and the viſions of mine head made me afraid. 16 Therefore I came unto one of them that ſtood by, and aſked him the trueth of all this: ſo he told me, and ſhewed me the interpretation of theſe things. 17 Theſe great beaſts which are foure, are foure kings, which ſhall ariſe out of the earth. 18 And they ſhall take the kingdome of the Saints of the moſt High, which ſhall poſſeſſe the kingdome for ever, even for ever and ever. 19 After this, I would know the trueth of the fourth beaſt That Balam loving the wages of unrighteouſneſſe Biſhops (of Rome) their predeceſſor ſpurring the Beaſt, on whoſe progreße to attend, Satan is looſed, called for a little ſeaſon, about ſeven hundred yeeres a goe. which was ſo unlike to all the others, very fearefull, whoſe teeth were of yron, and his nailes of braſſe: which devoured, brake in pieces, and ſtamped the reſidue under his feet. 20 Alſo to know of the ten hornes that were in his head, and of the other which came up, before whom three fell, and of the horne that had eyes, and of the mouth that ſpake preſumptuous things, whoſe looke was more ſtout than his fellowes. 21 I beheld, and the ſame horne made battell againſt the Saints, yea, and prevailed againſt them. 22 Untill the Ancient of dayes came, and judgement was given to the Saints of the moſt High: and the time approched, that the Saints poſſeſſed the kingdome. 23 Then he ſaid, The fourth beaſt ſhall be the foorth kingdome in the earth, which ſhallbe unlike to all the kingdomes, and ſhall devoure the whole earth, and I ſhall tread it downe and breake it in pieces. B2 And 012 B2v 24 And the ten hornes out of this kingdome are ten Kings that ſhall riſe: and another ſhall riſe after them, and he ſhallbe unlike to the firſt, and he ſhall ſubdue three Kings. 25 And ſhall ſpeake words againſt the moſt High, and ſhall conſume the Saints of the moſt High, Compaßeth the tents of the ſaints, and fower quarters of the World, from Rochell to America. and thinke that he may change times and lawes, and they ſhallbe given into his hand untill time, and times, and the dividing of time. 26 But the judgement ſhall ſit, and they ſhall take away his dominion to conſume and deſtroy it unto the end. Ten hundred yeers writen in his horned fore head, expired, the Beaſt & the falſe prophet ſhallbe caſt into the lake &c. 27 And the kingdome, and dominion, and the greatneſſe of the kingdome under the whole heaven ſhallbe given to the holy people of the moſt High, whoſe kingdome is an everlaſting kingdome, and all powers ſhall ſerve and obey him. In his kingdome before the end of the world in earth raigning evẽeven as in heaven. Daniel I end al. 28 Even this is the ende of the matter, I Daniel had many cogitations which troubled mee, and my countenance changed in mee: but I kept the matter in mine heart.
Chap. VIII.In the third yeere of the reigne of king Belſhazzar, The reigne of Belſhacer about the age of the World 3425. a viſion appeared unto mee, even unto mee Daniel, after that which appeared unto mee at the firſt. 2 And I ſaw in a viſion, and when I ſaw it, I was in the palace of Shuſhan, which is the province of Elam, and in a viſion me thought I was by the river of Ulai. 3 Then 013 B3r 3 Then I looked up and ſaw, and behold, there ſtood before the river a ramme Ramme, leader of the flocke, goeing up from waſhing. The Ramme ſignifieth the Romane Empire, the Empire of the Turks and Goths ſignified by the Gote, the two hornes Conſtantine & Rome. which had two hornes, and theſe two hornes were high: but one was higher then another, and the higheſt came up laſt. 4 I ſaw the ramme puſhing againſt the Weſt, and againſt the North, and againſt the South: ſo that no beaſts might ſtand before him, nor could deliver out of his hand, but he did what he liſted and became great. 5 And as I conſidered, behold, a goat came from the Weſt over the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and this goate had an horne that appeared betweene his eyes. 6 And he came unto the ramme that had the two hornes, whom I had ſeene ſtanding by the river, and ran unto him in his fierce rage. 7 And I ſaw him come unto the ramme, and being moved againſt him, he ſmote the ramme, and brake his two hornes: and there was no power in the ramme to ſtand againſt him, but he caſt him downe to the ground, and ſtamped upon him, and there was none that could deliver the ramme out of his power. 8 Therefore the goate waxed exceeding great, and when he was at the ſtrongeſt, his great horne was broken: and for it came up foure that appeared toward the foure winds of the heaven. The fower kingdoms towards the fower winds of heaven, are the Weſtren Ilands of Great- Brittain, France, Spayne and the Turckesh Empire. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horne, which waxed The little horne coming forth of one of them, waxing great, is the forces of the French, ſhall thinke to change times & lawes, &c. very great toward the South, and toward the Eaſt, and toward the pleaſant land. 10 Yea, it grew up unto the hoſte of heaven, B3 and 014 B3v and it caſt downe ſome of the hoſte, and of the starres to the ground, and trode upon them. 11 And extolled himſelfe againſt the prince of the hoſte, from whom the dayly ſacrifice was taken away, and the place of his Sanctuarie was caſt downe. 12 And a time ſhall be given him over the dayly ſacrifice for the iniquitie: and it ſhall caſt downe the trueth to the ground, and thus ſhall it doe, and proſper. 13 Then I heard one of the Saints ſpeaking, Two ſaints, ſo called for gifts of the holy Ghoſt, precious in theſe dayes, the certain ſaint ſpeaking, or wonderfull numberer of ſecrets, was a certaine childe about the age of 13 yeers in the yeere 16251625 called Carr, of the nation of Great- Brittain, that for certaine mounths by ſignes E numbering foretold all things, beyonde relatiōrelation, but being terrified and provoked to ſpeake, loſt the wonderfull gifegift for that time, after went beyonde ſea. and one of the Saints ſpake unto a certaine one, ſaying, How long ſhall endure the viſion of the dayly ſacrifice, and the iniquitie of the deſolation to tread both the Sanctuary and the armie under foote? 14 And he anſwered me, Unto the evening and the morning two thouſand and three hundreth: The dayes be ſo many yeeres to the end of the world, beginning frōfrom the viſion was about the yeere of the world 3425. then ſhall the Sanctuary be cleanſed. 15 Now when I Daniel had ſeene the viſion, and ſought for the meaning, beholde, there ſtood before me like the ſimilitude of a man. 16 And I heard a mans voyce betweene the banks of Ulai, which called, and ſaide, Gabriel, make this man to underſtand the viſion. 17 So he came where I ſtood: and when hee came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he ſaid unto me, Underſtand, O ſonne of man: for in the laſt time ſhalbe the viſion. 18 Now as he was ſpeaking unto me, I being aſleepe fell on my face to the ground, but he touched me, and ſet me up in my place. 19 And he ſaid, Behold, I will ſhew thee what ſhallbe 015 B4r ſhallbe in the laſt wrath: for the ende of the time appointed it ſhall come. 20 The ramme which thou ſaweſt having two hornes, are the Kings of the Medes and Perſians. 21 And the goate is the King of Grecia, and the great horne that is betweene his eyes, is the firſt king. 22 And that that is broken, and foure ſtood up for it, are foure kingdomes, which ſhall ſtand up of that nation, but not in his ſtrength. 23 And in the end of their kingdome, when the rebellious ſhallbe conſumed, a King of Guſtavus Adolphus, king of Sweden, Goths & Wendals, making peace with Poland, came into Germany. fierce countenance, and underſtanding darke ſentences, ſhall ſtand up. 24 And his power ſhallbe mightie, but not in his ſtrength: and hee ſhall deſtroy wonderfully, and ſhall proſper, and practiſe, and ſhall deſtroy the mightie, and the people of the holy ones. 25 And through his policie alſo he ſhall cauſe craft to proſper in his hand, and hee ſhall extoll himſelfe in his heart, and by peace ſhall deſtroy many: hee ſhall alſo ſtand up againſt the prince of princes, Emperour, Prince of free Princes. but he ſhall be broken down without hand. 26 And the viſion of the evening, and the morning, which is declared, is true: therefore ſeale thou up the viſion, for it ſhallbe after many dayes. 27 And I Daniel was ſtricken and ſicke certaine dayes: but when I roſe up, I did the kings buſineſſe, and I was aſtoniſhed at the viſion, but none underſtood it.
Chap. IX.In the firſt yeere of Darius the ſonne of Ahaſhueroſh, of the ſeede of the Medes, which was made king over the realme of the Caldeans. 2 Even in the firſt yeere of his reigne, I Daniel underſtood by bookes the number of the yeeres, Bookes informing Daniel, concerning the yeeres of the captivity. So the Angell by the ſame numbers, or words, giveth him underſtanding. whereof the Lord had ſpoken unto Jeremiah the Prophet, that he would accompliſh ſeventie yeeres Firſt that ſeventy weeks are determined &c. ſhewing ſeventy hundred yeeres, (or a weeke of thouſands) from the beginning to the end of the world, had not the dayes being ſhortned for the elects ſake. in the deſolation of Jeruſalem. 3 And I turned my face unto the Lord God, and ſought by prayer and ſupplications with faſting and ſackcloth and aſhes. 4 And I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confeſſion, ſaying, O Lord God which art great and fearefull, and keepeſt covenant and mercie toward them which love thee, and towarde them that keepe thy commandements. 5 Wee have ſinned and have committed iniquitie, and have done wickedly, yea, we have rebelled, and have departed from thy precepts, and from thy judgements. 6 For wee would not obey thy ſervants the Prophets, which ſpake in thy name to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, and to all the people of the land. 7 O Lord, righteouſnes belongeth unto thee, and unto us open ſhame, as appeareth this day unto every man of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jeruſalem, yea, unto all Iſrael, both neere and farre off, through all the countreys, whither thou haſt driven them, becauſe of their offences, that they have committed againſt thee. 8 O Lord, 017 C1r 8 O Lord, unto us apperteineth open ſhame, to our Kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, becauſe wee have ſinned againſt thee. 9 Yet compaſſion & forgiveneſſe is in the Lord our God, albeit wee have rebelled againſt him. 10 For we have not obeyed the voyces of the Lord our God, to walke in his lawes, which hee hath laid before us by the miniſtery of his ſervants the Prophets. 11 Yea, all Iſrael have tranſgreſſed thy Law, and are turned backe, and have not heard thy voyce: therefore the curſe is powred upon us, and the oathe that is written in the Law of Moſes the ſervant of God, becauſe wee have ſinned againſt him. 12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he ſpake againſt us, and againſt our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great plague: for under the whole heaven hath not beene the like, as hath beene brought upon Jeruſalem. 13 All this plague is come upon us, as it is written in the Law of Moſes: yet made wee not our prayer before the Lord our God, that wee might turne frōfrom our iniquities & underſtand thy trueth. 14 Therefore hath the Lord made readie the plague, and brought it upon us: for the Lord our God is righteous in all his works which he doth: for we would not heare his voyce. 15 And now, O Lord our God, that haſt brought thy people out of the lande of Egypt with a mightie hand, and haſt gotten thee renowne, as appeareth this day, we have ſinned, wee have done wickedly. C O Lord, 018 C1v 16 O Lord, according to all thy righteouſnes, I beſeech thee, let thine anger and thy wrath be turned away from the citie Jeruſalem thine holy Mountaine: becauſe of our ſinnes, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jeruſalem and thy people are a reproach to all that are about us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, heare the prayer of thy ſervant, and his ſupplications, and cauſe thy face to ſhine upon thy Sanctuarie, that lieth waſte for the Lords ſake. 18 O my God, encline thine eare and heare: open thine eyes, and behold our deſolations, and the citie whereupon thy Name is called: for wee do not preſent our ſupplications before thee for our owne righeouſnes, but for thy great tender mercies. 19 O Lord heare, O Lord forgive, O Lord conſider, and do it: deferre not, for thine owne ſake, O my God: for thy Name is called upon thy citie, and thy people. 20 And whiles I was ſpeaking and praying, and confeſſing my ſinne, and the ſinne of my people Iſrael, and did preſent my ſupplication before the Lord my God, for the holy Mountaine of my God. 21 Yea, while I was ſpeaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had ſeene before in the viſion came flying, and touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 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 019 C2r 23 At the beginning of thy ſupplications the commandement came forth, and I am come to ſhew thee, for thou art greatly beloved: therefore underſtand the matter and conſider the viſion. 24 Seventie weekes Shewing ſeventy yeers after the going forth of the ſtarre, ſeene by the wiſe men, Jeruſalem ſhould be deſtroyed unto the ende (the weeke of weekes) for their bloody fact unto Meſiah their Prince, their pardon not ſealed till then, after in everlaſting righteouſneſſe remaining, having their eyes opened to underſtand the viſions of the Prophets, concerning Chriſt Jeſus the moſt Holy. are determined upon thy people, and upon thine holy citie, to finiſh the wickedneſſe, and to ſeale up the ſinnes, and to reconcile the iniquitie, and to bring in everlaſting righteouſnes, and to ſeale up the viſion and prophecie, and to anoint the moſt Holy. 25 Know therefore and underſtand that from the going foorth of the commaundement to bring againe the people, and to builde Jeruſalem, unto Meſſiah the Prince, ſhallbe ſeven weekes and threeſcore and two weekes, Informeth a ſecond ſtarre about ſevẽtyſeventy yeers before the ſecond coming of the Meſiah, the moſt high ſhould be ſent forth againe, appearing 15721572. and the ſtreete ſhallbe built againe, and the wall even in a troublous time. And that about threeſcore & two yeeres after Jeruſalem ſhould be reſtored againe, the ſtreet built in the ſtreits of a trouble ſome time, delivered from bloodguiltines, ſhould offer the ſacrifice of a troubled ſpirit, a contrite harte the true ſacrifice. 26 And after threeſcore and two weekes, ſhall Meſſiah be ſlaine, and ſhall have nothing, and the people of the prince that ſhall come, ſhall deſtroy the citie and the Sanctuary, and the ende thereof shallbe with a flood: and unto the ende of the battell it ſhallbe deſtroyed by deſolations. 27 And he ſhall confirme the covenant with many for one weeke: & in the mids of the weeke hee ſhall cauſe the ſacrifice and the oblation to ceaſe, In the middeſt of the great weeke the fourth thouſand yeere of the World (cauſed other oblation to ceaſe) the innocent Lambe of God was ſlaine. and for the overſpreading of the abominations he ſhall make it deſolate, even untill the conſumation determined ſhall be powred upon the deſolate.
Chap. X.Several notes in chapter 10 are labeled incorrectly; for example, the text has anchor “A,” but the corresponding note in the margin has “B.” We have recorded the anchoring letters as they appear in the text but pointed the notes to the correct textual segments. Revealing after one and twenty hundred yeeres compleat from the viſion, the myſtery of the Word of God ſhould be unſealed, when the ſeventh laſt trumpet ſhould begin to ſound, the myſtery of God ſhould be finiſhed. In the third yeere of Cyrus King of Perſia, a thing was revealed unto Daniel (whoſe name was called Belteſhazzar) and the word was true, but the time appoynted was long, and he underſtood the thing, and had underſtanding of the viſion. 2 At the ſame time I Daniel was in heavines for three weeks of dayes. 3 I ate no pleaſant bread, neither came fleſh nor wine into my mouth, neither did I anoynt my ſelfe at all, till three weeks of dayes were fulfilled. 4 And in the foure and twentieth day of the firſt moneth, as I was by the ſide of that great river, even Hiddekel. 5 And I lift mine eyes, and looked, and behold, there was a man cloatedcloathed in linnen, whoſe loynes were girded with fine gold of Uphaz. 6 His body alſo was like the Chryſolite, and his face (too looke upon) like the lightning, The word of God revealed, is as gold and precious ſtones, as lightning going through the world as the voyce of a multitude, or army. and his eyes as lampes of fire, and his armes and his feete were like in colour to poliſhed braſſe, and the voyce of his wordes was like the voyce of a multitude. 7 And I Daniel alone ſaw the viſion: for the men that were with me, ſaw not the viſion: but a great feare fell upon them, ſo that they fled away and hid themſelves. 8 Therefore I was left alone, and ſaw this great viſion, and there remained no ſtrength in me: for my ſtrength was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no power. Affliction allwayes companion of the word. 9 Yet 021 C3r 9 Yet heard I the voyce of his word, and when I heard the voyce of his words, I ſlept on my face, and my face was toward the ground. 10 And behold, an hand touched me, which ſet me up upon my knees, and upon the palmes of mine hands, 11 And hee ſaid unto mee, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, underſtand the words that I ſpeake unto thee, and ſtand in thy place: for unto thee am I now ſent.
