It stopped, but I could not tell what it was. A form stood before my eyes, and I heard a hushed voice:
He said, "Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you." And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.
