Daniel 12:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake:1 some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.2 3 Those who are wisea3 will shine4 like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness,5 like the stars for ever and ever.6 4 But you, Daniel, close up and seal7 the words of the scroll until the time of the end.8 Many will go here and there9 to increase knowledge." 5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and there before me stood two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank.10 6 One of them said to the man clothed in linen,11 who was above the waters of the river, "How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?"12 7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand13 and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever,14 saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time.b15 When the power of the holy people16 has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.17" 8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, "My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?" 9 He replied, "Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed18 until the time of the end.19 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined,20 but the wicked will continue to be wicked.21 None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.22 11 "From the time that the daily sacrifice23 is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation24 is set up, there will be 1,290 days.25 12 Blessed is the one who waits26 for and reaches the end of the "1,335 days.27
