Daniel 12

Chapter 12

The Time of the End

1 “Now at that time aMichael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a btime of distress csuch as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the dbook, will be rescued.

2 aMany of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, bthese to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting 1contempt.

3 1Those who have ainsight will bshine brightly like the brightness of the 2expanse of heaven, and those who clead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

4 “But as for you, Daniel, aconceal these words and bseal up the book until the cend of time; dmany will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

5 Then I, Daniel, looked and behold, two others were standing, one on this bank of the river and the other on that bank of the river.

6 And aone said to the man bdressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “cHow long will it be until the end of these wonders?”

7 I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, 1as he araised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by bHim who lives forever that it would be for a 2ctime, 2times, and half a 2time; and as soon as 3they finish dshattering the 4power of the holy people, all these events will be completed.

8 As for me, I heard but could not understand; so I said, “My lord, what will be the 1outcome of these events?

9 He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and asealed up until the end time.

10 aMany will be purged, 1purified and refined, but the bwicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but 2those who chave insight will understand.

11 “From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the 1aabomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.

12 “How ablessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the b1,335 days!

13 “But as for you, go your way to the 1end; then you will enter into arest and rise again for your ballotted portion at the end of the 2age.”
