Daniel 12

The Time of the End

1Now at that time a  Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a b  time of distress c  such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the d  book, will be rescued. 2 e  Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake f  these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting
Lit abhorrence
Or The instructors will
Those who have i  insight will j  shine brightly like the brightness of the
Or firmament
expanse of heaven, and those who l  lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
4But as for you, Daniel, m  conceal these words and n  seal up the book until the o  end of time; p  many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

5Then 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. 6And q  one said to the man r  dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, s  How long will it be until the end of these wonders?” 7I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river

power of the holy people, all these events will be completed.
8As for me, I heard but could not understand; so I said, “My lord, what will be the
Or final end
outcome of these events?”
9He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and ae  sealed up until the end time. 10 af  Many will be purged

11From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the

12“How am  blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the an  1,335 days! 13But as for you, go your way to the
