CHAPTER 12

1 Moreover, at that time shall Michael the mighty prince stand up, standing for the sons of thy people; And there shall be a time of affliction, such as was not from the existence of nations until that period. Yet at this period thy people shall escape, every one who shall be found written in the book.

2 And many of those who sleep, and have been reduced to earth and dust, shall awake; some to perpetual life, and others to shame and continued abomination.

3 Then the wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; And those who have turned many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

4 And thou, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal up the book, till the time appointed. Many shall investigate, and knowledge shall be increased.

5 Then I Daniel was gazing, and behold two others standing, One on this side, and the other on that of the river’s bank.

6 And one of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be to the end of these wonders?”

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river; He raised his right hand and his left towards the heavens, and swore by him who liveth for ever, That it should be for the appointed time, times, and half a time; And at the completion of the dispersion of the holy people, All these things shall be accomplished.

8 Then I heard, but I did not understand; and I said, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these events?

9 Then he said, Depart, Daniel, because the words are closed and sealed up to the time appointed.

10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; Yet the impious shall act impiously: And the impious will not understand, but the prudent will understand.

11 From the time of taking away the continual sacrifice, to the setting up of the desolating abomination, shall be 1290 days.

12 Blessed is he who shall have waited, and shall have arrived at the 1335 days.

13 And do thou go until the end, and rest; And thou shalt stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

END OF CONNECTED TRANSLATION OF DANIEL
