Why is the verb singular in Dan 9:24 "70 weeks are decided"? I looked at
other quotes with time periods and verbs, but honestly, I am not sure if
they are plural or singular. Exodus 7:25, Genesis 50:3, Dan 9:2, Dan 10:3,
Jeremiah 25:12, and Jeremiah 29:10. Someone told me that 70 weeks could be
treated as a singular for some reason, but I am wondering if it is just a
I think there is a one in a million chance that Dan 9:24 could say "70 weeks
an oppression (tav kaf) is resting (nun het) against your people..." The
word "oppression" is used three times in psalms.
