The Seventy-Weeks Prophecy

20 Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, 21 yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man dGabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, 3being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. 22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. 23 At the beginning of your supplications the 4command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly ebeloved; therefore fconsider the matter, and understand the vision:

24 “Seventy 5weeks are determined

For your people and for your holy city,

To finish the transgression,

6To make an end of sins,

gTo make reconciliation for iniquity,

hTo bring in everlasting righteousness,

To seal up vision and prophecy,

iAnd to anoint 7the Most Holy.

25 “Know therefore and understand,

That from the going forth of the command

To restore and build Jerusalem

Until jMessiah kthe Prince,

There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;

The 8street shall be built again, and the 9wall,

Even in troublesome times.

26 “And after the sixty-two weeks

lMessiah shall 1be cut off, mbut not for Himself;

And nthe people of the prince who is to come

oShall destroy the city and the sanctuary.

The end of it shall be with a flood,

And till the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 Then he shall confirm pa 2covenant with qmany for one week;

But in the middle of the week

He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.

And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,

rEven until the consummation, which is determined,

Is poured out on the 3desolate.”
