Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 12:2

_ _ many ... that sleep — “many from among the sleepers ... these shall be unto everlasting life; but those (the rest of the sleepers who do not awake at this time) shall be unto shame” [Tregelles]. Not the general resurrection, but that of those who share in the first resurrection; the rest of the dead being not to rise till the end of the thousand years (Revelation 20:3, Revelation 20:5, Revelation 20:6; compare 1 Corinthians 15:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16). Israel’s national resurrection, and the first resurrection of the elect Church, are similarly connected with the Lord’s coming forth out of His place to punish the earth in Isaiah 26:19, Isaiah 26:21; Isaiah 27:6. Compare Isaiah 25:6-9. The Jewish commentators support Tregelles. Auberlen thinks the sole purpose for which the resurrection is introduced in this verse is an incitement to faithful perseverance in the persecutions of Antiochus; and that there is no chronological connection between the time of trouble in Daniel 12:1 and the resurrection in Daniel 12:2; whence the phrase, “at that time,” twice occurs in Daniel 12:1, but no fixing of time in Daniel 12:2, Daniel 12:3; 2 Maccabees 7:9, 14, 23, shows the fruit of this prophecy in animating the Maccabean mother and her sons to brave death, while confessing the resurrection in words like those here. Compare Hebrews 11:35. Newton’s view that “many” means all, is not so probable; for Romans 5:15, Romans 5:19, which he quotes, is not in point, since the Greek is “the many,” that is, all, but there is no article in the Hebrew here. Here only in the Old Testament is “everlasting life” mentioned.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 12:2

And many (b) of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.

(b) Meaning all will rise at the general resurrection, which thing he here names because the faithful should always consider that: for in the earth there will be no sure comfort.
