    THE TARRYING NIGHT

    In the same article in the Midnight Cry, we read: “But how came we into this tarrying night?-Because we commenced the vision [vision of the 2,300 days] in the spring, instead of the fall, 457 B. C., we fell short of reaching the destined port six months and a few days over. It threw us into the tarrying night six months.”LDT 169.2

    Another writer, in the Midnight Cry of August 22, 1844, said of the twenty-three hundred days: “They began at the going forth of the decree to restore and build Jerusalem. The decree was made at the first by Cyrus, renewed by Darius, and completed by Artaxerxes Longimanus in the seventh year of his reign. It was fully promulgated, and went into effect in the autumn of the year B. C. 457, when Ezra, having arrived at Jerusalem by the good hand of the Lord, restored the Jewish commonwealth, appointed magistrates and judges, and commenced the building of the wall.” 5See Daniel 9:25; Ezra 7:21-26; 9:9; Nehemiah 1:3; 2:12-17.LDT 170.1
