 13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said to that certain saint which spoke, "How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?"

 14 And he said to me, "Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed."2

2 And he said to me, "Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed. 2300 days is 2300 years by Bible numbering. Converting 2300 Jewish calendar years to our calendar (2300 years x 360 days per Jewish year / 365 days/year)= 2268 years. There is no agreement among scholars as to when the book of Daniel was written, with opinions varying from 100 BC to 600 BC. Therefore, considering the 2268 years to be the time from the vision to the restoration, the time of restoration is impossible to determine by arithmetic. However, in Daniel 12, Footnotes 1 and 3 reflect the times referenced by Steven Crisp and George Fox, both early Quakers who dwelled in the kingdom, both of whom wrote that the restoration time was taking place in the time of the Early Quakers. Regarding this specific verse, George Fox in his writing, A Looking Glass for the Jews, wrote to those of his time:

And Daniel heard one saint speak to another, ‘how long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? He said to me, unto two thousand three hundred days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.’ Dan 8:13-14. Now, compute this time, and number these days or years, and see in what time period you are. Dan 8.
