Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 12:3

_ _ wise — (Proverbs 11:30). Answering to “they that understand” (Daniel 11:33, Daniel 11:35), the same Hebrew, Maskilim; Israelites who, though in Jerusalem when wickedness is coming to a head, are found intelligent witnesses against it. As then they appeared worn out with persecutions (typically, of Antiochus; antitypically, of Antichrist); so now in the resurrection they “shine as the brightness of the firmament.” The design of past afflictions here appears “to make them white” (Matthew 13:43; Revelation 7:9, Revelation 7:14).

_ _ turn ... to righteousness — literally, “justify,” that is, convert many to justification through Christ (James 5:20).

_ _ stars — (1 Corinthians 15:41, 1 Corinthians 15:42).
