Daniel 12:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 12

The Resurrection

“At that time there shall arise Michael,
    the great prince,
    guardian of your people;
It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress
    since the nation began until that time.
At that time your people shall escape,
    everyone who is found written in the book.[a]
Many of those who sleep[b]
    in the dust of the earth shall awake;
Some to everlasting life,
    others to reproach and everlasting disgrace.
But those with insight shall shine brightly
    like the splendor of the firmament,
And those who lead the many to justice
    shall be like the stars[c] forever.


  1. 12:1 Written in the book: cf. 10:21.
  2. 12:2 Many of those who sleep: Daniel does not envisage the universal resurrection as later developed. Two groups are distinguished, one that rises to eternal life, the other to reproach and disgrace. Then “those with insight” (11:33–35) are singled out for special honor.
  3. 12:3 Like the stars: like the heavenly host, or angels. Cf. Mt 22:30.
