Daniel’s Prayer for His People
17 Behold, cI am stirring up the Medes against them,
who have no regard for silver
and do not delight in gold.
2 A stern vision is told to me;
wthe traitor betrays,
and the destroyer destroys.
Go up, O xElam;
lay siege, O yMedia;
all the zsighing she has caused
I bring to an end.
and every mland under their dominion.
