Gabriel Brings an Answer

20 While I was still (A)speaking and praying, and (B)confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and [a]presenting my plea before the Lord my God in behalf of the holy mountain of my God, 21 while I was still speaking in prayer, the man (C)Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision [b]previously, [c]came to me [d]in my extreme weariness about the time of the (D)evening offering. 22 And he instructed me and talked with me and said, “Daniel, I have come now to give you insight with (E)understanding. 23 At the (F)beginning of your pleas the [e]command was issued, and I have come to tell you, because you are [f](G)highly esteemed; so pay attention to the message and gain (H)understanding of the vision.
