Daniel 12
Holman Christian Standard Bible

1At that time

Michaela the great prince

who stands watch over your people will rise up.

There will be a time of distressb

such as never has occurredc

since nations came into being until that time.d

But at that time all your people

who are found written in the booke will escape.f

2Many of those who sleep in the dustg

of the earth will awake,

some to eternal life,h

and some to shame and eternal contempt.i

3Those who are wise will shine

like the bright expanse of the heavens,j

and those who lead many to righteousness,k

like the stars forever and ever.

4But you, Daniel, keep these words secretl and seal the bookm until the time of the end.n Many will roam about,o and knowledge will increase.”p

5Then I, Daniel, looked, and two others were standing there, one on this bank of the river and one on the other. 6One of them said to the man dressed in linen,q who was above the waters of the river,rHow long until the ends of these extraordinary things? ” 7Then I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river. He raised both his handst, u toward heaven and swore by Him who lives eternallyv that it would be for a time, times, and half a time.w When the power of the holy people is shattered, all these things will be completed.

8I heard but did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will be the outcome of these things? ”x

9He said, “Go on your way, Daniel, for the words are secrety and sealed until the time of the end.z 10Many will be purified,aa cleansed, and refined,ab but the wicked will act wickedly;ac none of the wicked will understand, but the wise will understand.ad 11From the time the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolationae is set up,af there will be 1,290 days. 12The one who waitsag for and reaches 1,335 days is blessed. 13But as for you, go on your way to the end;ah you will rest, then riseai to your destiny at the end of the days.”
