The Time of the End1 “At that time shall arise a Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And b there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered c everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. 2 And many of those who d sleep in e the dust of the earth shall f awake, g some to everlasting life, and h some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 i And those who are wise j shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; ▼
▼ Hebrew the expanse; compare Genesis 1:6–8and l those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, m shut up the words and n seal the book, until o the time of the end. p Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” 5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on q this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. 6 And someone said to r the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, ▼
▼ Or who was upstream; also verse 7t “How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?” 7 And I heard u the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; v he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and w swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a x time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of y the power of z the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished. 8 I heard aa but I did not understand. Then I said, “O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?” 9 He said, ab “Go your way, Daniel, ac for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 ad Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but ae the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand af but those who are wise shall understand. 11 And from the time that ag the regular burnt offering is taken away and ah the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. 12 ai Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days. 13 aj But go your way till the end. ak And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at al the end of the days.”
