was a nation even to that same time, [when all the tribes of the earth shall wail because of him.] And at that time thy people [all who are of the faith of Abraham] shall be delivered [from the dominion of death and the curse,] every one that shall be found written in the [Lamb's] book [of life.] And many [or the multitude] of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine [in the kingdom of the Lord] as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end [of papacy, when] many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased [respecting these things.]

Then I, Daniel, looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. 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 forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [that the supremacy of papacy shall continue;] and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people [at the end of the seven times or 2520 years from Manasseh's captivity, when the Gentiles had the dominion over them, till the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled,] 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? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end [of papal supremacy, when it will be understood.] Many shall be purified and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand [how long it will be to the end of all these wonders,] but the wise, [they who are to shine as the brightness of the firmament at that tune,] shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice [of Paganism, about A. D. 508,] shall be taken away, and the abomination [of papacy] that maketh desolate shall be set up [to the time of the end, when knowledge shall be increased on this subject,] there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days [1290 years.] Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days, [1335 years from about A. D. 508. But go thou thy way till the end [of these wonders] be: for thou shalt rest and stand in [for] thy lot, [in the resurrection] at the end of the [1335] days.
