4Q521 or the 4QMessianic Apocalypse is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls found in the Cave 4 near Qumran. From https://www.wikiwand.com/en/4Q521

The text:

[the hea]vens and the earth will listen to His Messiah [“anointed one”], and none therein will stray from the commandments of the holy ones.
Seekers of the Lord, strengthen yourselves in His service!
All you hopeful in (your) heart, will you not find the Lord in this?
For the Lord will consider the pious (hasidim) and call the righteous by name.
Over the poor His spirit will hover and will renew the faithful with His power.
And He will glorify the pious on the throne of the eternal Kingdom.
He who liberates the captives, restores sight to the blind, straightens the b[ent]
And f[or] ever I will cleav[ve to the h]opeful and in His mercy…
And the fr[uit…] will not be delayed for anyone.
And the Lord will accomplish glorious things which have never been as [He…]
For He will heal the wounded, and revive the dead and bring good news to the poor
…He will lead the uprooted and knowledge…and smoke (?)
— Michael O. Wise, translation[4]
