Daniel falls into a trance (Dan 8:18-8:18)

“As Gabriel

Was speaking

To me,

I fell into a trance,

Face to the ground.

Then he touched me.

He set me

On my feet.”

Daniel continued his first person singular recounting of this story. As the archangel Gabriel was speaking to him, he fell into a trance or deep sleep with his face to the ground. Then Gabriel touched him, as if to wake him. Then Gabriel put him on his feet.
