1 "At that time Michael, the archangel who stands guard over your nation, will arise. Then there will be a time of anguish greater than any since nations first came into existence. But at that time every one of your people whose name is written in the book will be rescued. 1 "At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise.

6 One of them asked the man dressed in linen, who was now standing above the river, "How long will it be until these shocking events happen?" 6 One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, "How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?"
7 The man dressed in linen, who was standing above the river, raised both his hands toward heaven and took this solemn oath by the one who lives forever: "It will go on for a time, times, and half a time. When the shattering of the holy people has finally come to an end, all these things will have happened." 7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed."
8 I heard what he said, but I did not understand what he meant. So I asked, "How will all this finally end, my lord?" 8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, "My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?"
9 But he said, "Go now, Daniel, for what I have said is for the time of the end. 9 He replied, "Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.

None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
