Daniel Chapter 9 tells how Daniel was trying to ascertain when the time of the Jewish captivity would be over based on what God told the prophet Jeremiah. First Daniel went to the scripture and read the words of Jeremiah.
Daniel 9: 3-6 I turned to the LORD God, pleading in earnest prayer, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. I prayed to the LORD, my God, and confessed, “Ah, LORD, great and awesome God, You who keep Your merciful covenant toward those who love You and observe Your commandments! We have sinned, been wicked and done evil; we have rebelled and departed from Your commandments and Your laws. We have not obeyed Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your Name to our kings, our princes, our fathers, and all the people of the land.
verse 15 “Now, O LORD, our God, who led Your people out of the land of Egypt with a strong hand, and made a Name for Yourself even to this day, we have sinned, we are guilty.”
verses 18-19 “Give Ear, O my God, and listen; open Your Eyes and see our ruins and the city which bears Your Name. When we present our petition before You, we rely not on our just deeds, but on Your great mercy. O LORD, hear! O LORD, pardon! O LORD be attentive and act without delay, for Your own sake, O my God, because this city and Your people bear Your Name!”
Those were the passages from Daniel with respect to the Name of the LORD, however Daniel chapter 12 is prophetic for the end times and it is something that one should read and be familiar with.
