1 In the third year of Persia's King Cyrus, a message was revealed to Daniel, who was called Belteshazzar. The message was true: there would be a great conflict. Daniel understood the message, having discerned the meaning of the vision. 1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. The understanding of the message came to him in a vision.
2 During that time, I, Daniel, had been mourning for three weeks. 2 At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks.
3 I didn't eat any rich foods. Neither meat nor wine passed my lips, and I didn't clean up at all until the three weeks were up. 3 I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.
