What portion of the 2300 days (years) mentioned in the vision, was allotted to the Jews?


"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city." Dan. 9: 24, first clause.'
NOTES. - 'As both the 2300 years of chapter 8 and the 'seventy weeks' of chapter 9 start from the
Persian period of Jewish history, in other words, as they both date from the restoration era which followed
the Babylonian captivity, their starting-points must be either identical or closely related chronologically.' "Light for the Last Days," by H. Grattan Guinness, London, Hodder and Stoughton, 1893, page 183.
"There is plainly a close correspondence between the two visions of Daniel 8 and Daniel 9. The
seventy weeks are said to be cut off for certain distinct objects; and this implies a longer period from which
they are separated, either the course of time in general, or some period distinctly revealed. Now the
previous period (the 2300 days) includes two events-the restoration of the sacrifice, and the desolation. The
fast of these is identical in character with the seventy weeks, which are a period of the restored polity of
Jerusalem; and hence the most natural explanation of the cutting off is that which refers to the whole period
of the former vision.' - "First Elements of Sacred Prophecy," by T. R. Birks, London, 1843, pages 359, 36o.
