Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on 1this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream.
And someone said to 2the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream,a3"How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?"
And I heard 4the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; 5he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and 6swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a 7time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of 8the power of 9the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished.
I heard, 10but I did not understand. Then I said, "O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?"
He said, 11"Go your way, Daniel, 12for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.
1013Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but 14the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, 15but those who are wise shall understand.
And from the time that 16the regular burnt offering is taken away and 17the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
1218Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days.
1319But go your way till the end. 20And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at 21the end of the days."
