    Daniel 7 - 12

    Thank you Brother Ed , for your kind words .

    7:11 __ great words
    boastful words

    7:12 __ for a season and a time
    a period of time

    7:28 __ my color changed
    my face turned pale

    8:23 __ of bold face
    fierce-looking

    9:16 __ have become a byword
    an object of scorn

    10:5 __ lifted up my eyes
    I looked up

    10:7 __ a great terror fell upon them ( In the Heb. )
    terror overwhelmed them

    10:8 __ my radiant appearance was fearfully changed
    my face turned deathy pale

    10:16 __ I retained no strength
    I feel very weak

    10:17 __ No breath is left in me
    I can hardly breathe

    11:17 __ He shall set his face to come
    He will determine to come

    11:20 __ an exactor of tribute for the glory of the kingdom
    a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor

    11:36 __ till the indignation is accomplished
    until the time of wrath is completed

    11:40 __ He shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through
    He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood
    Heb.= will overflow and pass over . But isn't the TNIV rendering a better way of conveying the thought ?

    12:10 __ Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined
    Many will be purified , made spotless and refined
    There is an important difference between these two wordings . Do the many purify themselves as the ESV has it ? In the TNIV rendering it allows God to be the agent of change , not man .

    12:13 __ shall stand in your allotted place
    will rise to receive your allotted inheritance
