18 Now the Lord appeared to him by the [a]oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.2 When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold, three men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the earth,3 and said, “[b]My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, please do not [c]pass Your servant by.
2 And He spoke to the man clothed in linen and said, “Enter between the whirling wheels under the [a]cherubim and fill your hands with coals of fire from between the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” And he entered in my sight.
3 Now the cherubim were standing on the right side of the [b]temple when the man entered, and the cloud filled the inner court.
7 Then the cherub stretched out his hand from between the cherubim to the fire which was between the cherubim, took some and put it into the hands of the one clothed in linen, who took it and went out.
4 But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
5 Then I, Daniel, looked and behold, two others were standing, one on this bank of the river and the other on that bank of the river.6 And one said to the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be until the end of these wonders?”
9 He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time.10 Many will be purged, [a]purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but [b]those who have insight will understand.11 From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the [c]abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.12 How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!13 But as for you, go your way to the [d]end; then you will enter into rest and rise again for your allotted portion at the end of the [e]age.”
9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.10 And as they were gazing intently into [a]the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them.
