Those 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. Bible see other translations

“wise will shine.” Wise people get saved and serve God, and in the future Kingdom of Christ on earth will shine and stand out from those who were barely saved but did not live a wise and obedient life. Part of what it means to be wise is to share the Good News of salvation and obedience with others, and that is highlighted in the second part of Daniel 12:3.
