"...like the similitude of the sons of men..."

  • Gabriel veiled his brightness and appeared in human form (SL 52). (4BC 861)

"...the vision my sorrows are turned upon me..."

  • In view of the fact that the term "vision" in both Daniel 10:1 and in Daniel 10:14 seem to apply to the revelation in Daniel 10:10-12, and also because Daniel's statement here in Daniel 10:16 is a logical continuation of his reaction (Daniel 10:15) to the angel's declaration concerning "the vision" (Daniel 10:14), it seems reasonable to conclude that the prophet is here speaking of the vision of divine glory he was witnessing. (4BC 861)
