Daniel 12: 1-3

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Daniel

In those days, I, Daniel, mourned
     and heard this word of the Lord:
At that time there shall arise
     Michael, the great prince,
     guardian of your people;
It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress
     since nations began until that time.
At that time your people shall escape,
     everyone who is found written in the book.

Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;
Some shall live forever,
     others shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace.
But the wise shall shine brightly
     like the splendor of the firmament,
And those who lead the many to justice
     shall be like the stars forever.

The word of the Lord.
