Daniel continues to pray…
in accordance with all Your righteous acts,
let now Your anger and Your wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain;
for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers,
Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us.
Daniel asks the Lord to turn His anger and wrath away from His city Jerusalem.
He asks based upon the righteous acts of the Lord.
He asks based upon the character of the Lord.
Daniel acknowledges that due to the sin and inquity of their fathers Jerusalem and the people of the Lord had become a reproach to all those around them.
All the nations knew what they had done.
All the nations knew of the judgment of the Lord.
All heaven and earth knew.
Daniel was now asking the Lord to turn away His anger/wrath.
