XIL. 8 And I heerd, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shell be the end of these things? . And I, Daniel, beard, but I did not distinctly and clearly enough Ederstand, the answer that was given : then I besought Christ, the Word of his father, that he would be pleased to give me a Dore clear and full understanding of these things.

XII. 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel : for the words are cased up and sealed till the time of the end. Asd be said, Go thy ways, Daniel ; and content thyself with so sech as is already revealed unto thee: for the particularities of these prophecies are not to be fully conceived, till the time of the felblag of them.

XII. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the micked shall do Tickedly : and none of the wicked shall understand; but the six shall understand. la tbe mean time, know, that this general affliction, which shall befel my Charch, sball bare different issues; for many, who are God's elect, shall be bettered thereby, and made more holy and perfect; but others again shall rather be hardened in their wickedfess: and none of the wicked shall regard either the judgments or mercies of God, or take heed to these promises or threatenings; but the godly sise will lay both of them to heart, accordingly.

XII. il And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken coy, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand and two hundred and ninety days. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away by Astrochas Epiphanes, and that abominable army of his shall seize upon the temple and all the holds of Judea, until the time that the same Antiochus shall be forced to yield to and confirm the reforration made by Judas Maccabeus, shall be three years, seven booths, and thirteen days; which shall be seven months and three dars, after the banishing of that shameful idolatry of Antiochus, and the beginnings of his happy restoration of God's true worship.

XII. 12 Blaard is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and fre and thirty days. Yet, even after this blessing, there is another worth your expecting, which is the death of this cruel tyrant, Epiphanes; that shall fall about two months after this later period : happy is he, therefore, that waiteth patiently upon God, and lives to see this effected, at the end of three years and about nine months, from the first erection of that his detestable idolatry.

XII. 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, od stand in thy lot at the end of the days. But go thou thy way, and rest in peace; contenting thyself with so much, as is revealed to thee: and quietly hold that station,

herein God bath placed thee, in an humble and silent expectation of these events, till the very end of thy days.
