12 “At that time Michael shall stand up,
The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
aAnd there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a nation,
Even to that time.
And at that time your people bshall be delivered,
Every one who is found cwritten in the book.
dSome to everlasting life,
3 Those who are wise shall fshine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
gAnd those who turn many to righteousness
hLike the stars forever and ever.
5 Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that kriverbank. 6 And one said to the man clothed in llinen, who was above the waters of the river, m“How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?”
7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he nheld up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him owho lives forever, pthat it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; qand when the power of rthe holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 sMany shall be purified, made white, and refined, tbut the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but uthe wise shall understand. 11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
