Many Shall Run To and Fro and Knowledge Shall be Increased

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (Daniel 12:4)

The Hebrew word translated “shall run to and fro” is shuwt and can also be translated to rove about, or go eagerly or quickly to and fro. The advent of cars and planes around 1900 has certainly made this possible on a massive scale.

The Hebrew word translated knowledge is daath and can be translated perception, skill, discernment, understanding, learning, insight, or wisdom. The obvious application is that of science, technology, and human learning that has exploded exponentially over the last 100 years.
