This:

“And you, Daniel, be faithful to the end. Then you will die, but you will rise to receive your reward at the end of time.”” (Daniel 12:13, GNB)

Sounds exactly the same as this:

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7–8, ESV)

Both the Old and New Testaments speak with one voice when it concerns those who have “fallen asleep” in Jesus.
