1“At that time Michael, the great leader who stands watch over your people, will rise up, and there will be a time of trouble such as never has occurred since there was a nation even until that time; and at that time your people will be delivered, that is, everyone who is found written in the book.
2And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven; and those who turn many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever and ever.
4But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many will run back and forth, and knowledge will be increased.”
5Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on the river bank on this side, and the other on the river bank on that side.
6One said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be to the end of these wonders?”
7I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by him who lives forever that it will be for a time, times, and half a time; and when they have finished shattering the power of the holy people, all these things will be finished.
8I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what will be the outcome of these things?”
9And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.
10Many will purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked will act wickedly. And none of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
11From the time that the regular burnt offering will be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there will be 1,290 days.
12Blessed is the one who waits for, and reaches the 1,335 days.
13But you, go your way until the end; and you will rest, then you will stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.”
