12 “And during that time Mi′cha·el*+ will stand up,+ the great prince*+ who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people.+ And there will certainly occur a time of distress such as has not been made to occur since there came to be a nation until that time.+ And during that time your people will escape,+ every one who is found written down in the book.+ 2 And there will be many of those asleep in the ground of dust who will wake up,+ these to indefinitely lasting life+ and those to reproaches [and] to indefinitely lasting abhorrence.+
5 And I saw, I Daniel, and, look! there were two others standing,+ one on the bank here of the stream* and the other on the bank there of the stream.+ 6 Then one said to the man clothed with the linen,+ who was up above the waters of the stream: “How long will it be to the end of the wonderful things?”+ 7 And I began to hear the man* clothed with the linen, who was up above the waters of the stream, as he proceeded to raise his right [hand] and his left [hand] to the heavens and to swear+ by the One who is alive for time indefinite:+ “It will be for an appointed time, appointed times and a half.*+ And as soon as there will have been a finishing of the dashing of the power* of the holy people to pieces,+ all these things will come to their finish.”
9 And he went on to say: “Go, Daniel, because the words are made secret and sealed up until the time of [the] end.+ 10 Many will cleanse themselves+ and whiten themselves+ and will be refined.+ And the wicked ones will certainly act wickedly,+ and no wicked ones at all will understand;+ but the ones having insight will understand.+
11 “And from the time that the constant [feature]*+ has been removed+ and there has been a placing of the disgusting thing+ that is causing desolation,* there will be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.
