Daniel 12 ©

The deliverance of God’s people, v. 1, etc. How long the troubles should yet last, 4. Daniel desires to know this, 5. The angel declares it to him, 7. But he understood it not, 8. He is commanded to be at rest, 13.


AND 1at that time shall 2Michael 3stand up, the great prince which standeth 4for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people 5shall be delivered, every one that shall be found 6written in the book.


And 7many of them that 8sleep 9in the dust of the earth shall awake, somea to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting 10contempt.


And 11they that be wise shall 12shineb as the brightness 13of the firmament; and they that turn many 14to righteousness as the stars 15for ever and ever.


But thou, O Daniel, 16shut up the words, and seal the book, even 17to the time of the end: many shall 18run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.


¶Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood 19other two, the one on this side of the 20bank of the river, and the other on that side of the 21bank of the 22river.


And 23one said to the 24man clothedc in linen, 25which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to 26the end of these wonders?


And Id heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever 27that it shall be for a time, times, and 28an half; and when 29he shall have accomplished 30to scatter 31the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.


And I heard, but 32I understood not: then said I, O my 33Lord, what shall be 34the end of these things?


And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for 35the words are closed up and sealed 36till the time of the end.


37Many shall be 38purified, and made white, and tried; 39but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the 40wise shall understand.


And from the time that 41the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate 42set up, 43there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.


Blessed is he that waiteth, and 44cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.


But go thou thy way 45till the end be: for thou shalt 46rest, and 47stand 48in thy lot 49at the end of the days.
