The Time of the End

1 "At that time shall arise 1Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And 2there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, 3everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of those who 4sleep in 5the dust of the earth shall 6awake, 7some to everlasting life, and 8some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 9And those who are wise 10shall shine like the brightness of the sky above;a and 11those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
4 But you, Daniel, 12shut up the words and 13seal the book, until 14the time of the end. 15Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."
5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on 16this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream.
6 And someone said to 17the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream,b18"How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?"
7 And I heard 19the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; 20he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and 21swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a 22time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of 23the power of 24the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished.
8 I heard, 25but I did not understand. Then I said, "O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?"
9 He said, 26"Go your way, Daniel, 27for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.
10 28Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but 29the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, 30but those who are wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that 31the regular burnt offering is taken away and 32the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
12 33Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days.
13 34But go your way till the end. 35And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at 36the end of the days."
