King James VersionDaniel12


1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for 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 shall be de­liv­ered, ev­ery one that shall be found writ­ten in the book. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to ev­er­last­ing life, and some to shame and ev­er­last­ing con­tempt. 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the bright­ness of the fir­ma­ment; and they that turn many to righ­teous­ness as the stars for ever and ev­er. 4 But thou, 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 oth­er two, the one on this side of the bank of the riv­er, and the oth­er on that side of the bank of the riv­er. 6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the wa­ters of the riv­er, How long shall it be to the end of these won­ders? 7 And I 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 that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have ac­com­plished to scat­ter the pow­er of the holy peo­ple, all these things shall be fin­ished. 8 And I heard, but I un­der­stood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 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 abom­i­na­tion that maketh des­o­late set up, there shall be a thou­sand two hun­dred and nine­ty days. 12 Blessed is he that wait­eth, and cometh to the thou­sand three hun­dred and five and thir­ty days. 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
