Will the resurrection described in Daniel 12:2 be partial or universal?

2 And many of those who d sleep in the dust of the earth shall e awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

But the problem is that some scriptures leave the impression that only some will be raised from the dead. Daniel says “many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake” (Dan. 12:2). The NT often refers to resurrection “out from among” (Gk., ek) the dead, implying that not all will be raised (e.g., Luke 20:35; Acts 4:2; Rom. 1:4; 1 Cor. 15:12).

Daniel 12:2

NIV - 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
