n that day the prayer of the holy and the righteous, and the blood of the righteous, shall ascend from the earth into the presence of the Lord of spirits.
In that day shall the holy ones assemble, who dwell above the heavens, and with united voice petition, supplicate, praise, laud, and bless the name of the Lord of spirits, on account of the blood of the righteous which has been shed; that the prayer of the righteous may not be intermitted before the Lord of spirits; that for them he would execute judgment; and that his patience may not endure for ever. (44)
(44) That his patience... endure for ever. Or, "(that) their patience may not have to last for ever" (Knibb, p. 133).
At that time I beheld the Ancient of days, while he sat upon the throne of his glory, while
the book of the living was opened in his presence, and while
all the powers which were above the heavens stood around and before him.
Then were the hearts of the saints full of joy, because the consummation of righteousness was arrived, the supplication of the saints heard, and the blood of the righteous appreciated by the Lord of spirits.
