Someone touches Daniel’s lips to let him speak (Dan 10:16-10:17)

“Then one in human form

Touched my lips.

I opened

My mouth

To speak.

I said to the one

Who stood

Before me.

‘My lord!

Because of the vision,

Such pains

Have come upon me,

That I retain no strength.

How can

My lord’s servant

Talk with my lord?

I am shaking.

No strength remains

In me.

No breath

Is left in me.’”

The human form, probably the angel Gabriel, touched his lips, so that Daniel was able to speak. Then, Daniel told him, his lord, that he was in pain with no strength because of the vision. He was shaking and out of breath.
