Daniel 12:1-3


OLD TESTAMENT READING (First Reading)

 

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
