Daniel 9:1-2

Daniel reads something in the Book of Jeremiah

1 This is what happened in the first year that Darius ruled the country. He was the son of Xerxes and he came from the country called Media. He became king of Babylon. 2 In his first year as king, I, Daniel, was studying God's book. I read what the Lord had told his prophet, Jeremiah. He said that Jerusalem would continue to be empty for 70 years. Nobody would live there.
