1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.
6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.
12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
16 And, behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.
20Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.

Matthew Henry's Daniel Chapter 10 Bible commentary...
Daniel's vision near the river Hiddekel. (1-9) He is to expect a discovery of future events. (10-21)1-9. This chapter relates the beginning of Daniel's last vision, which is continued to the end of the book. The time would be long before all would be accomplished; and much of it is not yet fulfilled. Christ appeared to Daniel in a glorious form, and it should engage us to think highly and honourably of him. Let us admire his condescension for us and our salvation. There remained no strength in Daniel. The greatest and best of men cannot bear the full discoveries of the Divine glory; for no man can see it, and live; but glorified saints see Christ as he is, and can bear the sight. How dreadful soever Christ may appear to those under convictions of sin, there is enough in his word to quiet their spirits.
10-21 Whenever we enter into communion with God, it becomes us to have a due sense of the infinite distance between us and the holy God. How shall we, that are dust and ashes, speak to the Lord of glory? Nothing is more likely, nothing more effectual to revive the drooping spirits of the saints, than to be assured of God's love to them. From the very first day we begin to look toward God in a way of duty, he is ready to meet us in the way of mercy. Thus ready is God to hear prayer. When the angel had told the prophet of the things to come, he was to return, and oppose the decrees of the Persian kings against the Jews. The angels are employed as God's ministering servants, #Heb 1:14|. Though much was done against the Jews by the kings of Persia, God permitting it, much more mischief would have been done if God had not prevented it. He would now more fully show what were God's purposes, of which the prophecies form an outline; and we are concerned to study what is written in these Scriptures of truth, for they belong to our everlasting peace. While Satan and his angels, and evil counsellors, excite princes to mischief against the church, we may rejoice that Christ our Prince, and all his mighty angels, act against our enemies; but we ought not to expect many to favour us in this evil world. Yet the whole counsel of God shall be established; and let each one pray, Lord Jesus, be our righteousness now, and thou wilt be our everlasting confidence, through life, in death, at the day of judgment, and for evermore.

When Jesus said "paradise" while he was on the cross, he was not referring to heaven. Remember, 3 days later, he told Mary not to touch him because he had not yet ascended to his father. You see, death or Hades would be paradise to a person being tortured! I sure hope no one is getting lost in the details I donít think God would wants us incapacitated like Daniel, but with this being said in response is Jesus. Daniel I have a theory, maybe after death we are no longer singular but one like Christ, GOD, and the holy spirit. Love, LOVE.

V13 was on of Satans Angels. Or demon. Michael comes to help Gabriel.

Doesn't this chapter along with 11 & 12 seem like it should be part of the Apocrypha, or is it just me. These three chapters read differently than the entire rest of the Bible. They look like they were written at the end of the Machabeean period.

Daniel referred in verse 17 to him as my lord.
In verse 21 he made it plain to Daniel that michael was Daniels prince.
Andre's Daniel Chapter 10 comment about verse 13 on 8/05/2011, 2:17am...
You said in the notes in v5 that the messenger was Christ. How can this be Christ also...
This was a demon trying to stop Gabriel or one of the other messanger angels to get to Daniel.
Micheal is one of the Chief angels.
