persistent: enduring with a firm hold of something in an unwavering manner; continuing in spite of opposition, obstacles or discouragement

Then he said to me, “Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was standing in opposition to me for twenty one days” (Daniel 10:12-13, AMP).
“Do not be afraid, Daniel. From the very first day that you began to pursue understanding and humble yourself before your God, your words have been heard. I have been sent in response to what you’ve said. I would have been here sooner; however, for the past 21 days the spirit prince of Persia opposed me and prevented my coming to you” (Daniel 10:12-13, VOICE).
