Daniel 9:20-27 NKJV

20Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, 21yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man #Dan. 8:16; Luke 1:19, 26Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. 22And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. 23At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly #Dan. 10:11, 19beloved; therefore #Matt. 24:15consider the matter, and understand the vision: 24“Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, #2 Chr. 29:24; (Is. 53:10); Acts 10:43; (Rom. 5:10); Heb. 9:12, 14To make reconciliation for iniquity, #Rev. 14:6To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, #Ps. 45:7And to anoint the Most Holy. 25“Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until #Luke 2:1, 2; John 1:41; 4:25Messiah #Is. 55:4the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. 26“And after the sixty-two weeks #(Is. 53:8); Matt. 27:50; Mark 9:12; 15:37; (Luke 23:46; 24:26); John 19:30; Acts 8:32Messiah shall be cut off, #(1 Pet. 2:21)but not for Himself; And #Matt. 22:7the people of the prince who is to come #Matt. 24:2; Mark 13:2; Luke 19:43, 44Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27Then he shall confirm #Is. 42:6a covenant with #(Matt. 26:28)many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, #Dan. 11:36Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
