NLT Footnotes
The third year of Cyrus’s reign was 536 B.C.
Hebrew On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, of the ancient Hebrew lunar calendar. This date in the book of Daniel can be cross-checked with dates in surviving Persian records and can be related accurately to our modern calendar. This event occurred on April 23, 536 B.C.
Hebrew the prince; also in 10:13c, 20.
Hebrew the chief princes.
As in one Greek version; Hebrew reads and I was left there with the kings of Persia. The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.
As in most manuscripts of the Masoretic Text; one manuscript of the Masoretic Text and one Greek version read Then something that looked like a human hand.
Hebrew of Javan.
Hebrew against these except Michael, your prince.
