Daniel 12:1-3

Context

12:1 “At that time Michael,

the great prince who watches over your people, 1 

will arise. 2

unlike any other from the nation’s beginning 3 

up to that time.

But at that time your own people,

all those whose names are 4  found written in the book,

will escape.

12:2 Many of those who sleep

in the dusty ground will awake –

some to everlasting life,

and others to shame and everlasting abhorrence. 5 

12:3 But the wise will shine

like the brightness of the heavenly expanse.

And those bringing many to righteousness

will be like the stars forever and ever.
