A messenger tells Daniel about the ‘end times’ and future kings of the north and south. Darius becomes king of Persia: Daniel 10:1–12:13; Ezra 4:24–5:1

Daniel was ‘very precious to God’ and was given visions that terrified him (they scare more than a few people who read them now), but he was also given this promise:

Daniel 12:13 As for you, go your way until the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days, you will rise again to receive the inheritance set aside for you.
