The final three chapters of the book of Daniel record an extensive revelation of the prophetic future which is without parallel anywhere else in Scripture. There is hardly anything in the Bible that is just like these chapters, especially like chapter 11. The word, the vision, and minute prediction are combined in a manner that is found nowhere else in the Scriptures.”The entire content of chapter 10, for instance, is introductory, indicating the extensive character of the prophecy to follow. The introduction actually extends through the first verse of chapter 11. The next section, 11:2-12:4, is divided into two major divisions. The first, 11:2-35, deals with the immediate future, from Darius to Antiochus; and the second, 11:36-12:4, with the far future, the end times just before the second advent of Christ. A final message and revelation is given to Daniel in 12:5-13. The last three chapters constitute the fourth vision of Daniel which gathers together the significant threads of prophecy, especially as they relate to the Holy Land and to the people of Israel.

V. Verse Examination. Dr. Charles C. Ryrie (Th. M., Th. D., Ph. D., Litt. D.,1925-2016) Ryrie Study Bible.
A. 10:1. “the third year of Cyrus.” 536 B.C.
B. 10: 2. “three entire weeks.” Lit., weeks of years.
C. 10:4. Obviously Daniel was not among those who returned to build the Temple in Jerusalem in connection with Cyrys’s decree (9:25). His age (mid 80’s) and governmental duties prevented him.
D. 10:12. Daniel’s prayer was heard on the first day of the three-week period, but the answer was delayed because of angelic warfare.
E. 10:13. “the prince of the kingdom of Persia.” A supernatural creature who tried to direct the human rulers of Persia to oppose God’s plan. Evil angels seek to influence the affairs of nations. “Michael,” which means “who is like God?” (v 21; 12:1; Jude 9; Rev 12:7), is the special guardian of the affairs of Israel (12:1) and is designated the archangel (Jude 9). “one of the chief princes” shows a hierarchy among the angels (cf Eph 1:21). “I had been left there with the kings of Persia.” The good angel (cf vv 5-6), with Michael’s help, was left in place of preeminence in influencing Persia. But the battle between good and evil angels over the control of nations continues (see v 20 and Rev 20:3).
F. 10:14. “the latter days.” Future days culminating in the events surrounding the second coming of Christ (cf 2:28; Gen 49:1).
