1 And a reed was given me like a rod: one saying, Rise, and measure the temple of :God, and the altar, and those wor- shiping therein. 2 And the court :without the temple †leave without, and measure it not; because it hath been given to the nations: and the holy :city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give to my two :witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloths. 4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands, :standing before the Lord of the earth. 5 And if any desireth to hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their :mouth and devoureth their :enemies; and if any shall desire to hurt them, he must thus be killed. 6 These have the authority to shut the heaven, that it rain not during the days of their :prophecy: and they have authority over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they shall desire. 7 And when they shall have finished their :testimony, the beast that cometh up out of the abyss shall make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead :body is on the street of the great :city, the which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their :Lord was crucified. 9 And from among the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations they look upon their dead :body three days and a half, and suffer not their dead :bodies to be laid in a tomb. 10 And the dwellers on the earth rejoice over them, and make merry; and they shall send gifts one to another; because these two :prophets tormented the dwellers on the earth. 11 And after the three days and a half the spirit of life from :God entered in them, and they stood upon their :feet; and great fear fell upon them that beheld them. 12 And they heard a great voice from the heaven saying to them, Come up hither. And they went up into :heaven in the cloud; and their :enemies beheld them. 13 And a great earthquake came in that :hour, and the tenth of the city fell; and seven thousand names of men were killed in the earthquake: and the rest were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of :heaven. 14 The second :Woe is gone: lo, the third :Woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel trumped: and great voices in heaven came, saying,
The kingdom of the world is become our :Lord’s and his :Christ’s, and he shall reign unto the ages of the ages.
16 And the twenty-four elders, who sit before :God on their :thrones, fell upon their :faces and worshiped :God, 17 saying, We thank thee, Lord :God, the Almighty, who is and who was; because thou hast taken thy :great :power, and didst reign. 18 And the nations were wroth, and thy :wrath came, and the season of the dead to be judged, and to give their reward to thy :bondmen the prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy :name, the small and the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.
19 And the sanctuary of God :in :heaven was opened, and in his sanctuary the ark of his :covenant was seen; and lightnings came, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail.
