1 And at that time Michael shall stand up, the great ruler who stands for the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation; until that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.
3 And those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars forever and ever.
4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
5 Then I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood another two, the one on this [side], and the one on that [side] of the bank of the river.
6 And [one] said to the man clothed in linen on the waters of the river: Until when [shall be] the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who [was] on the waters of the river, when he held up his right and his left [hand] to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it [shall be] for a time, times, and a half. And when they have made an end of scattering the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
8 And I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, O my lord, what [shall be] the end of these things?
9 And He said, Go, Daniel! For the words [are] closed up and sealed until the end-time.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried. But the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the desolating abomination set up, a thousand two hundred and ninety days [shall occur].
12 Blessed [is] he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
13 But you go on to the end, for you shall rest and stand in your lot at the end of the days.
