Then he said to the man who was clothed in linen who was above[a] the water of the stream,[b]How long until[c] the end of the wonders?” And I heard the man who was clothed in linen who was above[d] the water of the stream,[e] and he raised his right hand and his left hand to heaven and he swore by the one who lives forever[f] that an appointed time, appointed times, and half an appointed time would pass when the shattering of the power of the holy people[g] would be completed;[h] then all these things will be accomplished.

Daniel 12:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?”

The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time.[a] When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.

I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”

Daniel 12:6-8 King James Version (KJV)

And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?

And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
