New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
5 Then I looked up and saw two other angels. One was on this side of the Tigris River. And one was on the other side. 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.
6 The man who was dressed in linen was above the waters of the river. One of the angels said to him, "How long will it be before these amazing things come true?" 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 raised both hands toward heaven. I heard him take an oath in the name of the One who lives forever. He answered me, "Three and a half years. Then the power of the holy people will be broken at last. And all of those things will come true." 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 didn't understand it. So I asked, "My master, what will come of all of this?" 8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, "My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?"
9 He answered, "Go on your way, Daniel. The scroll is rolled up. It is sealed until 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.
10 Many people will be made pure in the fire. They will be made spotless. But sinful people will continue to be evil. Not one sinful person will understand. But those who are wise will. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
11 "The daily sacrifices will be stopped. And the hated thing that destroys will be set up. After that, there will be 1,290 days. 11 "From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.
12 Blessed are those who wait for the 1,335 days and reach the end of them. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the "1,335 days.
13 "Daniel, go on your way until the end. Your body will rest in the grave. Then at the end of the days you will rise from the dead. And you will receive what God has appointed for you." 13 "As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance."
