Daniel 12:3

Hebrew Bible

1 “At that time Michael, the great prince who watches over your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress unlike any other from the nation’s beginning up to that time. But at that time your own people, all those whose names are found written in the book, will escape. 2 Many of those who sleep in the dusty ground will awake—some to everlasting life, and others to shame and everlasting abhorrence. 3 But the wise will shine like the brightness of the heavenly expanse. And those bringing many to righteousness will be like the stars forever and ever. 4 “But you, Daniel, close up these words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many will dash about, and knowledge will increase.”

4 Ezra 7:125

2 Esdras

123 What good is the revelation of paradise and its imperishable fruit, the source of perfect satisfaction and healing? 124 For we shall never enter it, since we have made depravity our home. 125 Those who have practiced self- discipline shall shine with faces brighter than the stars; but what good is that to us whose faces are darker than the night? 126 For during a lifetime of wickedness we have never given a thought to the sufferings awaiting us after death.’
