1At that time
who stands watch over your people, will rise up.
since nations came into being until that time.12:1 Rv 16:18
But at that time all your people
who are found written in the book12:1 Dn 7:10; 10:21; Rv 20:12 will escape.12:1 Php 4:3; Rv 20:12; 21:27
of the earth will awake,
and some to disgrace and eternal contempt.12:2 Is 66:24
3Those who have insight will shine
like the stars forever and ever.
4“But you, Daniel, keep these words secret12:4 Dn 8:26; 12:9; Rv 10:4 and seal the book12:4 Is 8:16; Jr 32:9–12; Rv 22:10 until the time of the end.12:4 Dn 8:17; 12:9,13 Many will roam about,12:4 2Ch 16:9; Jr 5:1; Am 8:12 and knowledge will increase.”12:4 LXX reads and the earth will be filled with unrighteousness
5Then I, Daniel, looked, and two others were standing there, one on this bank of the river and one on the other.
6One of them said to the man dressed in linen,12:6 Ezk 9:2; Dn 10:5 who was above the water of the river,12:6 Dn 8:16 “How long until the end12:6 Dn 8:13; Mt 24:3; Mk 13:4 of these wondrous things?”
7Then I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the water of the river. He raised both his hands12:7 Lit raised his right and his left12:7 Ezk 20:5; Rv 10:5–6 toward heaven and swore by him who lives eternally12:7 Dn 4:34 that it would be for a time, times, and half a time.12:7 Dn 7:25; Rv 11:2; 12:14 When the power of the holy people is shattered, all these things will be completed.
9He said, “Go on your way, Daniel, for the words are secret12:9 Rv 10:4 and sealed until the time of the end.12:9 Dn 12:4
10Many will be purified,12:10 Zch 13:9; Ac 1:6–7; 2Th 2:7–12 cleansed, and refined,12:10 Dn 11:35 but the wicked will act wickedly;12:10 Is 32:6–7; Rv 22:11 none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.12:10 Dn 12:3; Hs 14:9; Jn 7:17; 8:47
11From the time the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation12:11 Dn 9:27 is set up,12:11 Dn 11:31; Mt 24:15; Mk 13:14 there will be 1,290 days.
