23 At the beginning of your petitions an answer went out, and I have come to give it, for you are treasured by God.(A) So consider the message and understand the vision:(B)

24 Seventy weeks[a] are decreed(C)
about your people and your holy city—
to bring the rebellion to an end,
to put a stop to sin,
to wipe away iniquity,
to bring in everlasting righteousness,(D)
to seal up vision and prophecy,
and to anoint the most holy place.
25 Know and understand this:
From the issuing of the decree
to restore and rebuild Jerusalem(E)
until Messiah(F) the Prince[b]
will be seven weeks and 62 weeks.[c]
It will be rebuilt with a plaza and a moat,
but in difficult times.
