Daniel 12
International Standard Version

The End Times

1“‘At that time, Michaela will arise, the great prince who will stand up on behalf of your people, and a time of trouble will come like there has never been since nations began until that time. Also at that time, your people will be delivered—everyone who will have been written in the book. 2Many of those who are sleeping in the dust of the earth will awaken—some to life everlasting, and some to disgrace and everlasting contempt. 3Those who manifest wisdom will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who turn many to righteousness will shineb like the stars for ever and ever. 4Now as for you, Daniel, roll up your scroll and seal your words until the time of the end. Many will rush around, while knowledge increases.’”

The Vision of the Two Speakers

5“Then while I, Daniel, continued watching, suddenly two others stood there, one on this side of the river bank and one on the other side. 6One asked the man dressed in linen clothes, who was standingc above the waters of the river, ‘How long until the fulfillment of the wonders?’

7“I heard the man dressed in linen clothes, who was standingd above the waters of the river as he lifted his right and left hands to heaven and swore by the one who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and a half. When the shattering of the power of the holy people has occurred, all these things will conclude.”

Daniel’s Unanswered Question

8“I heard, but I didn’t understand. So I asked, ‘Sir,e what happens next?’

9“He answered, ‘Go on your way, Daniel, because these mattersf are wrapped up and sealed until the time of the end. 10Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined, though the wicked will continue to act wickedly, and none of the wicked will understand. Nevertheless, the insightfulg will understand. 11There will beh 1,290 days from the time the regular burnt offeringi is rescinded and the destructive desolation established. 12Blessed is the one who perseveres and attains to the 1,335 days. 13Now as for you, keep on going until the end—you’ll rest and then rise to receive your reward at the end of the age.’”j
