UNTO REVELATION OF JOHN
1 Jesus Christ’s revelation which :God gave him to show to his
:bondmen things which must come to pass with speed: and he sent and signified it through his :angel to his :bondman John; 2 who witnessed to the word of :God and to the witness of Jesus Christ, all things that he saw. 3 Blessed who readeth, and who hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things written therein: for the season is nigh.
4 JOHN to the seven churches :in :Asia: Grace to you and peace, from him who is and who was and who †is to come; and from the seven Spirits †:before his :throne; 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful :witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him that loveth us, and loosed us from our :sins in his :blood;—6 and he made us a kingdom, priests to :God and his Father;—to him the glory and the might unto the ages. Amen. 7 Lo, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Yea, Amen.
8 I am the Alpha and the †Ōmega, saith the Lord :God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
9 I John, your :brother and partaker with you in the tribulation and kingdom and patience in Jesus, was in the isle :called Patmos, for the word of :God and the witness of Jesus. 10 I became in Spirit on the †Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trump 11 saying, What thou seest, write in a booklet and send to the seven churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardeis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and amidst the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed down to the foot, and girt about at the breasts with a golden girdle. 14 And his :head and his :hair white as white wool, as snow; and his :eyes as a flame of fire; 15 and his :feet like burnished brass, as refined in a furnace; and his :voice as the voice of many waters; 16 and having in his :right hand seven stars: and proceeding out of his :mouth a sharp two-edged sword: and his :countenance as the sun shineth in his :strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his :feet as one dead. And he laid his :right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last, 18 and the Living one; and I became dead, and lo, I am alive unto the ages of the ages, and have the keys of :death and of :Hades. 19 Write therefore what things thou sawest, and those which are, and those which shall come to pass hereafter; 20 the mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my :right, and the seven :golden lampstands. The seven stars are angels of the seven churches: and the seven :lampstands are seven churches.
1 To the angel :of the church in Ephesus write: These things saith he who holdeth the seven stars in his :right, who walketh midst the seven :golden lampstands: 2 I know thy :works, and thy :toil and :patience, and that thou canst not bear evil men, and didst try them that call themselves apostles, and they are not, and didst find them false; 3 and thou hast patience and didst bear for my :name’s sake, and hast not grown weary. 4 But I have this against thee, that thou didst leave thy first :love. 5 Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works; else I come to thee, and will move thy :lampstand out of its :place, except thou repent. 6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of :life, which is in the Paradise of :God.
8 And to the angel :of the church in Smyrna write: These things saith the first and the last, who became dead, and lived: 9 I know thy :tribulation, and :poverty (but thou art rich), and the blasphemy from them that say they are Jews, and are not, but are :Satan’s synagogue. 10 Fear not what things thou art about to suffer: lo, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried and have a tribulation of ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of :life. 11 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
Who overcometh shall in nowise be hurt of the second death.
12 And to the angel :of the church in Pergamos write:
These things saith he that hath the sharp :two-edged :sword: 13 I know where thou dwellest, where the throne of Satan is; and thou holdest fast my :name, and didst not deny my :faith, even in the days of Antipas my :witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where :Satan dwelleth. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there some holding the teaching of Balaam, who taught :Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication. 15 Thus hast thou also some holding the teaching of Nicolaitans likewise. 16 Repent therefore; else I come to thee quickly, and I will war against them with the sword of my :mouth. 17 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden :manna, and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it.
18 And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: †These things saith the Son of :God, who hath his :eyes as a flame of fire, and his :feet like burnished brass: 19 I know thy :works, and the love and the faith and the ministry and thy :patience, and thy :last :works are more than the first. 20 But I have against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel, who calleth herself prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my :bondmen to commit fornication, and to eat idol sacrifices. 21 And I gave her time to repent; and she willeth not to repent of her :fornication. 22 Lo, I cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of her :works. 23 And I will kill her :children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he that searcheth reins and hearts: and I will give to each of you according to your :works. 24 But to you I say, to the rest :in Thyatira, as many as have not this :teaching, who know not the depths of :Satan, as they are saying, I lay on you no other burden. 25 Nevertheless what ye have, hold fast till I come. 26 And who overcometh, and who keepeth my :works unto the end, to him will I give authority over the nations: 27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels are broken to shivers; as I also have received of my :Father: 28 and I will give him the morning :star. 29 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
1 And to the angel :of the church in Sardis write: These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of :God, and the seven stars: I know thy :works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Become watchful, and establish the things remaining, which were about to die: for I have not found thy works perfected before my :God. 3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and didst hear; and keep it, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come as a thief, and thou shalt in nowise know what hour I will come upon thee. 4 But thou hast a few names in Sardis that did not defile their :garments: and they shall walk with me in †white; because they are worthy. 5 Who overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white garments; and I will in nowise blot his :name out of the book of :life, and I will confess his :name before my :Father, and before his :angels. 6 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
7 And to the angel :of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith the holy one, the true, that hath the key of David, who openeth and none shall shut, and who shutteth and none openeth: 8 I know thy :works (lo, I have †set before thee a door opened, which none can shut it), that thou hast a little power, and didst keep my :word, and didst not deny my :name. 9 Lo, I give of the synagogue of :Satan, of them that say they are Jews, and are not, but lie; lo, I will make them to come and worship before thy :feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of the trial, which hour is to come upon the whole inhabited earth, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 I come quickly: hold fast what thou hast, that no one take thy :crown. 12 Who overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my :God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of my :God, and the name of the city of my :God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of the heaven from my :God, and my :new :name. 13 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and the true :witness, the beginning of the creation :of God: 15 I know thy :works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am about to spew thee out of my :mouth. 17 Because thou sayest [that], I am rich, and have become rich, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that thou be rich; and white garments, that thou be clothed and the shame of thy :nakedness be not manifested, :and eye salve to anoint thine :eyes, that thou see. 19 As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Lo, I stand at the door and knock: if any hear my :voice and open the door, I will come in unto him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 Who overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my :throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my :Father in his :throne. 22 Who hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
1 After these things I saw, and lo, a door opened in the heaven, and the first :voice that I heard, as a trump speaking with me, one saying, Come up hither, and I will show thee what things must come to pass. 2 After these things I was straightway in the Spirit: and lo, a throne was set in the heaven, and one sitting upon the throne; 3 and who sat was to look upon like a jasper stone and a sardius: and a rainbow round the throne, like an emerald to look upon. 4 And round the throne four and twenty thrones: and upon the thrones I saw four and twenty elders sitting, arrayed in white garments; and upon their :heads golden crowns. 5 And out of the throne proceed lightnings and voices and thunders. And seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of :God; 6 and before the throne, as if a glassy sea like crystal; and midst the throne, and round the throne, four living beings full of eyes before and behind. 7 And the first :living being was like a lion, and the second living being like a calf, and the third living being had a face as of a man, and the fourth living being was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four †living beings having each one of them six wings, are full of eyes around and within: and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord :God, :Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming.
9 And whenever the living beings shall give glory and honor and thanks to him that sitteth on the throne, to him that liveth unto the ages of the ages, 10 the twenty-four elders shall fall down before him that sitteth on the throne, and shall worship him that liveth unto the ages of the ages, and shall cast their :crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Worthy art thou, our :Lord and :God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power: because thou didst create :all things, and because of thy :will they were, and were created.
1 And I saw on the right hand of him that sat on the throne a booklet written within and on the back, close sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a great voice, Who is worthy to open the booklet, and to break its seals? 3 And no one in the heaven, or on the earth, or under the earth could open the booklet, or look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the booklet, or to look thereon: 5 and one of the elders saith to me, Weep not; lo, the Lion, he of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath overcome to open the booklet and the seven seals thereof. 6 And I saw amidst the throne and the four living beings, and amidst the elders, a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of :God, sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him that sat on the throne. 8 And when he had taken the booklet, the four living beings and the four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having each a harp, and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sing a new song, saying; Worthy art thou to take the booklet, and to open the seals thereof; because thou wast slain, and didst purchase to :God with thy :blood men of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation, 10 and madest them a kingdom and priests to our :God; and they reign upon the earth.
11 And I saw, and I heard a voice of many angels round the throne and the living beings and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands;
12 saying with a great voice,
Worthy is the Lamb :slain to receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
13 And everything created which is in the heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and on the sea, and all the things in them, heard I saying,
To him that sitteth on the throne, and to the Lamb, the blessing, and the honor, and the glory, and the might unto the ages of the ages.
14 And the four living beings said, Amen. And the elders fell down and worshiped.
1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living beings saying as with a voice of thunder, Come. 2 And I saw, and lo, a white horse, and who sat thereon had a bow; and a crown was given him: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer. 3 And when he opened the second :seal, I heard the second living being saying, Come. 4 And another came forth, a red horse: and to the one sitting thereon it was given [him] to take the peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and a great sword was given him. 5 And when he opened the third :seal, I heard the third living being saying, Come. And I saw, and lo, a black horse; and who sat thereon had a balance in his :hand. 6 And I heard as a voice amidst the four living beings saying, A quart of wheat for a shilling, and three quarts of barley for a shilling, and the oil and the wine hurt thou not. 7 And when he opened the fourth :seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living being saying, Come. 8 And I saw, and lo, a pale horse: and who sat upon him, his name was †:Death; and :Hades followed with him. And authority was given them over the fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the beasts of the earth. 9 And when he opened the fifth :seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of the slain for the word of :God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 and they cried with a great voice, saying, How long, :Master, the holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our :blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And to each of them a white robe was given; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet a little time, until their :fellow-bondmen also and their :brethren, who are to be killed even as they, be fulfilled in number. 12 And I saw when he opened the sixth :seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole moon became as blood; 13 and the stars of the heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree shaken of a great wind casteth her unripe figs. 14 And the heaven was removed as a †scroll when rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of their :places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the magnates, and the †chief captains, and the rich, and the strong, and every one bond and free, hid themselves into the caves and into the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of the one sitting on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 because the great :day of their :wrath is come; and who can stand?
1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that no wind blow on the earth, or on the sea, or upon any tree. 2 And I saw another angel ascend from the sunrising, having the living God’s seal: and he cried with a great voice to the four angels to whom it was given to [them] to hurt the earth and the sea, 3 saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we shall have sealed the bondmen of our :God on their :foreheads. 4 And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of Israel’s sons:
5 Of Judah’s tribe were sealed twelve thousand;
Of Reuben’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Gad’s tribe twelve thousand;
6 Of Asher’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of †Naphtali’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Manasseh’s tribe twelve thousand;
7 Of Simeon’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Levi’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Issachar’s tribe twelve thousand;
8 Of Zebulun’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Joseph’s tribe twelve thousand;
Of Benjamin’s tribe were sealed twelve thousand.
9 After these things I saw, and lo, a great multitude, which no one could number [it] out of every nation and of all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, arrayed in white robes, and palms in their :hands; 10 and they cry with a great voice, saying,
The salvation to our :God who sitteth on the throne, and to the Lamb.
11 And all the angels were standing round the throne, and the elders and the four living beings; and fell before the throne on
their :faces, and worshiped :God,
Amen: The blessing, and the glory, and the wisdom, and the thanksgiving, and the honor, and the power, and the strength, unto our :God unto the ages of the ages. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying to me, These arrayed in the white :robes, who are they, and whence came they? 14 And I said to him, My lord, THOU knowest. And he spake to me, These are they that come out of the great :tribulation, and they washed their :robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of :God and serve him day and night in his :sanctuary: and who sitteth on the throne shall tabernacle over them. 16 They shall hunger no more, nor thirst anymore; neither shall the sun strike upon them, nor any heat: 17 because the Lamb that is amidst the throne shall shepherd them, and guide them unto fountains of waters of life: and :God shall wipe away every tear from their :eyes.
1 And when he opened the seventh :seal, silence was in the heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels that stand before :God; and seven trumpets were given them. 3 And another angel came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer; and much †incense was given him that he should †add it to the prayers of all the saints upon the golden :altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense for the prayers of the saints went up before :God out of the angel’s hand. 5 And the angel took the censer; and filled it from the fire of the altar, and cast it unto the earth: and thunders came, and voices, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 6 And the seven angels that had the seven trumps prepared themselves to trump.
7 And the first trumped, and there was hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast unto the earth: and the third of the earth was burnt up, and the third of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8 And the second angel trumped, and as if a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third of the sea became blood; 9 and the third of the creatures which were in the sea died, they that had †souls; and the third of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel trumped, and a great star fell from the heaven, burning as a torch, and fell upon the third of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters; 11 and the name of the star is called :Wormwood: and the third of the waters became wormwood; and many :men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel trumped, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third of the moon, and the third of the stars; that the third of them should be darkened, and the day should not shine for the third of it, and the night likewise.
13 And I saw, and I heard one eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a great voice, Woe, woe, woe, for the earth-dweller by reason of the remaining voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to trump.
1 And the fifth angel trumped, and I saw a star from :heaven fallen unto the earth: and the key of the pit of the abyss was given him. 2 And he opened the pit of the abyss; and smoke went up out of the pit, as smoke of a great furnace; and the sun was darkened and the air by the smoke of the pit. 3 And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was said to them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither aught green, neither any tree, but only such :men as have not the seal of :God on their foreheads. 5 And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their :torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when it striketh a man. 6 And in those :days :men shall seek :death, and shall in nowise find it; and they shall desire to die, and :death fleeth from them. 7 And the likenesses of the locusts were like horses prepared for war; and upon their :heads as if crowns like gold, and their :faces were as men’s faces. 8 And they had hair as hair of women, and their :teeth were as of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as if breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as a sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to war. 10 And they have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their :tails is their :power to hurt :men five months. 11 They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddōn, and in the Greek he hath the name Destroyer. 12 The one :Woe is gone: lo, yet two Woes come hereafter.
13 And the sixth angel trumped, and I heard one voice from the horns of the golden :altar :before :God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel that had the trumpet, Loose the four angels :bound at the great :river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, those prepared for the hour and day and month and year, that they should kill the third of :men. 16 And the number of the armies of the horsemen was twice ten thousands of ten thousands: I heard their :number. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates as of fire and hyacinth and brimstone: and the heads of the horses are as heads of lions; and out of their :mouths proceedeth fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three :plagues was the third of :men killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which proceeded out of their :mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their :mouth, and in their :tails: for their :tails are like serpents, and have heads; and with them they hurt. 20 And the rest of :men who were not killed with these :plagues repented not of the works of their :hands, that they should not worship the demons, and the idols :of gold, and :of silver, and :of brass, and :of stone, and of :wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 and they repented not of their :murders, nor of their :sorceries, nor of their :fornication, nor of their :thefts.
1 And I saw another strong angel coming down out of :heaven, arrayed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his :head, and his :face as the sun, and his :feet as pillars of fire; 2 and he had in his :hand a little book open: and he set his :right :foot upon the sea, and the left upon the earth; 3 and he cried with a great voice, just as a lion roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders spake their :voices. 4 And when the seven thunders spake, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from :heaven saying, Seal what things the seven thunders spake, and write them not. 5 And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the earth lifted up his :right :hand to :heaven, 6 and sware by him that liveth unto the ages of the ages, who created the heaven and the things therein, and the earth and those therein, and the sea and those therein, that there shall not be a time anymore: 7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to trump, then is also finished the mystery of :God, according to the good tidings which he declared to his :bondmen the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from :heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, Go, take the booklet which is open in the hand of the angel that standeth on the sea and on the earth. 9 And I went unto the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he saith to me, Take, and eat it up; and it shall make thy :belly bitter, but in thy :mouth it shall be sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the hand of the angel, and ate it up; and it was in my :mouth as sweet as honey: and when I had eaten it, my: belly was made bitter. 11 And they say to me, Thou must prophesy again over many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.
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.
1 And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her :feet, and on her :head a crown of twelve stars; 2 and she was with child; and she crieth out, travailing, and in pain to be delivered. 3 And another sign was seen in the heaven: and lo, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his :heads seven diadems. 4 And his :tail draweth the third of the stars of the heaven, and he cast them to the earth: and the dragon standeth before the woman :about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her :child. 5 And she was delivered of a son, a male, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her :child was caught up unto :God, and unto his :throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath there a place prepared of :God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred threescore days. 7 And war was in the heaven: :Michael and his :angels going to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his :angels; 8 and he prevailed not, neither was their :place found anymore in the heaven. 9 And the great :dragon was cast down, the old :serpent, the one called Devil and :Satan, who deceiveth of the whole inhabited earth; he was cast down to the earth, and his :angels were cast down with him. 10 And I heard a great voice in the heaven, saying,
Now is the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom, become our God’s, and the authority is become his Christ’s: for the accuser of our :brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our :God day and night. 11 And THEY overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their :testimony; and they loved not their :life even unto death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that tabernacle in them. Woe for the earth and the sea, because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short season.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the male. 14 And the two wings of the great :eagle were given to the woman that she fly to the wilderness to her :place, where she is nourished there for a season, and seasons, and half a season, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his :mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her :mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his :mouth. 17 And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her :seed, that keep the commandments of :God, and hold the testimony of Jesus:
1 and he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his :horns ten diadems, and upon his :heads names of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his :feet as a bear’s, and his :mouth as a lion’s mouth, and the dragon gave him his :power, and his :throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his :heads as though it had been smitten unto death; and his :stroke of :death was healed: and the whole earth wondered after the beast; 4 and they worshiped the dragon, because he gave the authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? and who can war with him? 5 and a mouth was given him, speaking great things and blasphemies; and authority was given him to †continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his :mouth for blasphemies against :God, to blaspheme his :name, and his :tabernacle, them that tabernacle in the heaven. 7 And it was given him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and authority was given him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And all the earth-dwellers shall worship him, every one whose :name hath not been written in the book of :life of the Lamb :slain from the world’s foundation. 9 If any hath an ear, let him hear. 10 If any is unto captivity, unto captivity he goeth: if any shall kill with the sword, with the sword must he be killed. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them that dwell therein to worship the first :beast, whose :stroke of :death was healed. 13 And he doeth great signs, that he should make even fire to come down out of :heaven upon the earth in men’s sight. 14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth with the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived. 15 And it was given to her to give a spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that they give them a mark on their :right :hand, or upon their :forehead; 17 and that no one be able to buy or sell, save who hath the mark, the name of the beast or the number of his :name. 18 Here is the wisdom. Who hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his :number is Six hundred sixty six.
1 And I saw, and lo, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his :name, and the name of his :Father, written on their :foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from :heaven, as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of a great thunder: and the voice which I heard was as of harpers harping with their :harps: 3 and they sing as if a new song before the throne, and before the four living beings and the elders: and no one could learn the song save the hundred and forty-four thousand, the purchased out of the earth. 4 These are who were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are who follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among :men, firstfruit to :God and to the Lamb. 5 And in their :mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.
6 And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal gospel to proclaim over the earth-dwellers, and over every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 saying with a great voice, Fear :God, and give him glory; for the hour of his :judgment is come: and worship him that made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters. 8 And another, second angel, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, that hath made all the nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her :fornication. 9 And another, third angel, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any worshipeth the beast and his :image, and receiveth a mark on his :forehead, or upon his :hand, 10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of :God, mingled unmixed in the cup of his :anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in presence of holy angels, and in presence of the Lamb: 11 and the smoke of their :torment goeth up unto the ages of the ages; and they have no rest day and night who worship the beast and his :image, and whoso receiveth the mark of his :name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints, those keeping the commandments of :God, and the faith of Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from the heaven saying, Write, Blessed the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth. Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their :labors; for their :works follow with them.
14 And I saw, and lo, a white cloud; and on the cloud one sitting like a son of man, having on his :head a golden crown, and in his :hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out from the temple, crying with a great voice to him that sat on the cloud, Send forth thy :sickle, and reap: because the hour to reap is come; because the harvest of the earth is become dry. 16 And who sat on the cloud cast his :sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel came out from the temple :in the heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, the one having power over :fire; and he called with a great voice to him that had the sharp :sickle, saying, Send forth thy sharp :sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; because her :grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel cast his :sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage of the earth, and cast it into the †winepress, the †great, of the wrath of :God. 20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out from the winepress, even unto the bridles of the horses, as far as a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
1 And I saw another sign in :heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having seven plagues, the last, for in them is finished the wrath of :God. 2 And I saw as if a glassy sea mingled with fire; and those victorious from the beast and from his image and from the number of his :name, standing †by the glassy sea, having harps of :God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the bondman of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvelous thy :works, Lord :God, the Almighty; righteous and true thy :ways, :King of the ages. 4 Who shall not fear, Lord, and glorify thy :name? for thou only art holy; for all the nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy righteous acts have been manifested.
5 And after these things I saw, and the sanctuary of the tabernacle of the testimony in the heaven was opened: 6 and out came from the sanctuary the seven angels that had the seven plagues, arrayed with precious stone pure, bright, and girt about their breasts with golden girdles. 7 And one of the four living beings gave the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of the God who liveth unto the ages of the ages. 8 And the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of :God, and from his :power; and none was able to enter into the sanctuary, till the seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished.
1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, Go, and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of :God unto the earth. 2 And the first went, and poured out his :bowl unto the earth; and there came a noisome and grievous sore upon the men that had the mark of the beast, and that worshiped his :image. 3 And the second poured out his :bowl into the sea; and it became blood as of one dead; and every living soul died, the things in the sea. 4 And the third poured out his :bowl into the rivers and the fountains of the waters; and it became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying, Righteous art thou, who is and who was, the Holy One, because thou didst thus judge: 6 because they poured out blood of saints and prophets, and blood hast thou given them to drink; they deserve it. 7 And I heard the altar saying, Yea, Lord :God, the Almighty, true and righteous thy judgments. 8 And the fourth poured out his :bowl upon the sun; and it was given him to scorch :men with fire. 9 And :men were scorched with great heat: and they blasphemed the name of the God who hath the power over these :plagues; and they repented not to give him glory. 10 And the fifth poured out his :bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his :kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their :tongues for pain, 11 and they blasphemed the God of the heaven for their :pains and for their :sores; and they repented not of their :works. 12 And the sixth poured out his :bowl upon the river, the great, the Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way be made ready for the kings :from the sunrising. 13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, as if frogs: 14 for they are spirits of demons, working signs; which go forth over the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together unto the war of the great :day of God, the Almighty. 15 (Lo, I come as a thief. Blessed who watcheth, and keepeth his :garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his :shame.) 16 And they gathered them together into the place :called in Hebrew Har Magedōn. 17 And the seventh poured out his :bowl upon the air; and a great voice came forth out of the temple, from the throne, saying: Done: 18 and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty. 19 And the great :city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered before :God, to give her the cup of the wine of the anger of his :wrath. 20 And every island fled, and mountains were not found. 21 And great hail, stones about a talent weight, cometh down out of :heaven upon :men: and :men blasphemed :God for the plague of the hail; because the plague thereof is exceeding great.
1 And one out of the seven angels that had the seven bowls came and spake with me, saying, Hither, I will show thee the judgment of the great :harlot that sitteth upon many waters; 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the dwellers on the earth were made drunken with the wine of her :fornication. 3 And he carried me away in Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy, he having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and gilded with gold and precious stone and pearls, having in her :hand a golden cup full of abominations, and the unclean things of her :fornication, 5 and upon her :forehead a name written, a mystery, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered with a great wonder. 7 And the angel said to me, Wherefore didst thou wonder? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss, and he goeth unto destruction. And the dwellers on the earth shall wonder, they whose name hath not been written upon the little book of :life from the world’s foundation, when they behold the beast, how that he was, and is not, and shall be present. 9 Here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, where the woman sitteth on them: 10 and the kings are seven; the five are fallen, the one is, the other is not yet come; and when he do come, he must continue a little while. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth unto destruction. 12 And the ten horns that thou sawest are ten kings, who have received no kingdom as yet; but receive authority as kings with the beast one hour. 13 These have one mind, and they give their :power and authority to the beast. 14 These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and they with him called and chosen and faithful. 15 And he saith to me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and crowds, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her †:flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire. 17 For :God did put in their :hearts to do his :mind, and to come to one mind, and to give their :kingdom to the beast, until the words of :God should be accomplished. 18 And the woman whom thou sawest is the great :city, which hath kingship over the kings of the earth.
1 After these things I saw another angel coming down out of :heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his :glory. 2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and is become a habitation of demons, and prison of every unclean spirit, and prison of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For by the wine of the wrath of her :fornication all the nations are fallen, and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth waxed rich by the power of her :luxury. 4 And I heard another voice from :heaven, saying Come forth, my :people, out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her :sins, and that ye receive not of her :plagues: 5 for her :sins are heaped up even unto :heaven, and :God hath remembered her :iniquities. 6 Render to her even as she rendered, and redouble to her according to her :works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle to her double. 7 However much she glorified herself, and waxed luxurious, so much give her of torment and mourning: because she saith in her heart [that], I sit as queen, and am no widow, and shall in nowise see mourning. 8 Therefore in one day shall her plagues :come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord :God who judged her. 9 And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication with her and lived luxuriously, shall weep and wail over her, when they shall see the smoke of her :burning, 10 standing afar off for the fear of her :torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great :city, Babylon, the strong :city! for in one hour is thy :judgment come. 11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no one buyeth their :cargo anymore; 12 cargo of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; and all thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon, and spice, and incenses, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and grain, and cattle, and sheep; and of horses and chariots and bodies; and souls of men. 14 And the fruits of the lust of thy soul are gone from thee, and all the dainty and the sumptuous are perished from thee, and men shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her :torment, weeping and mourning; 16 saying, Woe, woe, the great :city, the one arrayed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and gilded with gold and precious stone and pearl! 17 because in one hour so great :riches is made desolate. And every shipmaster, and every one that saileth †any whither, and mariners, and as many as work on the sea, stood afar off, 18 and cried as they looked upon the smoke of her :burning, saying, What city is like the great :city? 19 And they did cast dust upon their :heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe, woe, the great :city, wherein all that had their ships in the sea became rich from her :costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, O heaven, and ye the saints, and the apostles, and the prophets; for :God hath judged your :judgment on her. 21 And one strong angel took up a stone as if a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with a mighty rush shall Babylon, the great city, be cast down, and shall be found no more at all. 22 And the voice of harpers and minstrels and flute players and trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatever craft, shall be found anymore at all in thee; and the †noise of a mill shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23 and the light of a lamp shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: because thy :merchants were the princes of the earth; because with thy :sorcery were all the nations deceived. 24 And in her was found blood of prophets and of saints, and of all the slain upon the earth.
1 After these things I heard as if a loud voice of a great crowd in the heaven, saying,
Hallēlujah; the salvation and the glory, and the power are our :God’s: 2 because true and righteous are his :judgments; because he hath judged the great harlot, she that corrupted the earth with her :fornication, and he hath avenged the blood of his :bondmen at her hand.
3 And a second time they said, Hallelujah. And her :smoke goeth up unto the ages of the ages. 4 And the twenty-four :elders and the four living beings fell down and worshiped the God that sitteth on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah. 5 And a voice came forth from the throne, saying,
Praise our :God, all ye his :bondmen that fear him, the small and the great.
6 And I heard as if a voice of a great crowd, and as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of mighty thunders, saying,
Hallelujah: for the Lord our :God, the Almighty, †reigneth. 7 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and we will give him the glory: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his :wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given her that she array herself in fine linen bright, pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 And he saith to me, Write, Blessed those bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith to me, These are the true words of :God. 10 And I fell down before his :feet to worship him. And he saith to me, See, not so: I am a fellow-bondman with thee and thy :brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship :God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of :prophecy. 11 And I saw the heaven opened; and lo, a white horse, and he that sat thereon is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness doth he judge and war. 12 And his :eyes are flame of fire, and on his :head are many diadems; having a name written which no one knoweth but he. 13 And he is arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his :name is called The Word of :God. 14 And the armies which are in the heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white, pure. 15 And out of his :mouth proceedeth a sharp sword, wherewith to smite the nations: and HE shall rule them with a rod of iron: and HE treadeth the press of the wine of the fierceness of the wrath of :God, the Almighty. 16 And he hath upon the garment and upon his :thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw one angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid heaven, Come and be gathered together unto the great supper of :God; 18 that ye may eat †flesh of kings, and †flesh of †captains, and †flesh of mighty men, and †flesh of horses and their riders, and †flesh of all, both free and bond, and small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their :armies, gathered to make :war against him that sat upon the horse, and against his :army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought the signs in his sight, wherewith he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshiped his :image: they two were cast alive into the lake of :fire that burneth with brimstone: 21 and the rest were killed with the horseman’s sword, which came forth out of his :mouth: and all the birds were filled with their †:flesh.
1 And I saw an angel coming down out of the heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain over his :hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, the old :serpent, who is the Devil and :Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be finished: thereafter he must be loosed for a little time. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of those beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of :God, and such as worshiped not the beast, neither his :image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their :hand; and they lived, and reigned with the Christ a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first :resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy who hath part in the first :resurrection: over these the second death hath no authority; but they shall be priests of :God and of the Christ, and shall reign with him the thousand years. 7 And when the thousand years are finished, :Satan shall be loosed out of his :prison, 8 and shall come forth to deceive the nations, those in the four corners of the earth, :Gōg and Magōg, to gather them together to the war: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved :city: and fire came down out of the heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of :fire and :brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet; and they shall be tormented day and night unto the ages of the ages.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat thereon, from whose :face the earth and the heaven fled away; and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne; and booklets were opened: and another booklet was opened, which is that of :life: and the dead were judged out of the things written in the booklets, according to their :works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and :death and :Hades gave up the dead :in them: and they were judged each according to their :works. 14 And :death and :Hades were cast into the lake of :fire. This is the second :death, the lake of :fire. 15 And if any was not found written in the book of :life, he was cast into the lake of :fire.
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth are gone; and the sea is no more. 2 And I saw the holy :city Jerusalem new coming down out of :heaven from :God, made ready as a bride adorned for her :husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Lo, the tabernacle of :God is with :men, and he shall tabernacle with them, and THEY shall be his peoples, and :God himself shall be with them: 4 and he shall wipe away every tear from their :eyes; and: death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, anymore: the first things are gone. 5 And who sitteth on the throne said, Lo, I make all things new. And he saith, Write: because these :words are faithful and true. 6 And he said to me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the †Ōmega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one athirst of the fountain of the water of :life freely. 7 Who overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be God to him, and he shall be son to me. 8 But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all :liars, their :part is in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
9 And one of the seven angels came who had the seven bowls, who were laden with the seven :last plagues; and spake with me, saying, Hither, I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb. 10 And he carried me away in Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the holy :city Jerusalem, coming down out of the heaven from :God, 11 having the glory of :God: her luminary was like unto a stone most precious, as a jasper stone, clear as crystal: 12 having a wall great and high; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written thereon, which are those of the twelve tribes, of Israel’s sons. 13 On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city †had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And who spake with me had for a measure a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth four-square, and the length thereof is as great as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty-four cubits by man’s measure, that is, an angel’s. 18 And the building of the wall thereof was jasper; and the city was pure gold like unto pure glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every precious stone. The first :foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, gold stone; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, gold leek; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the several gates was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass. 22 And I saw no sanctuary therein: for the Lord :God the Almighty is the sanctuary thereof, and the Lamb. 23 And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine upon it: for the glory of :God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the lamp thereof. 24 And the nations shall walk by the :light thereof: and the kings of the earth bring their :glory into it. 25 And the gates thereof shall in nowise be shut by day (for no night shall be there): 26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it: 27 and in nowise shall enter into it anything unclean, or who maketh an abomination and a lie: but only those written in the Lamb’s :book of :life.
1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of :God and of the Lamb, 2 amidst the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was a tree of life, bearing twelve fruits, yielding its :fruit each month: and the leaves of the tree were for curing the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, and the throne of :God and of the Lamb shall be therein: and his :bondmen shall serve him, 4 and shall see his :face; and his :name shall be on their :foreheads. 5 And night shall be no more; and they have no need of light of lamp, nor light of sun; for the Lord :God shall give them light: and they shall reign unto the ages of the ages.
6 And he said to me, These :words are faithful and true: and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his :angel to show to his :bondmen what things must come to pass with speed. 7 And lo, I come speedily. Blessed who keepeth the words of the prophecy of this :book. 8 And I John am he who heareth and seeth these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that showed me these things. 9 And he saith to me, See, not so. I am fellow-bondman of thee and thy :brethren the prophets, and them that keep the words of this :booklet: worship :God. 10 And he saith to me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this :booklet; for the season is nigh. 11 Who is unrighteous, let him be unrighteous still: and who is filthy, let him be made filthy still: and who is righteous, let him do righteousness still: and who is holy, let him be made holy still. 12 Lo, I come speedily; and my :reward is with me, to render to each according as his :work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the †Ōmega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 14 Blessed they that wash their :robes, that theirs shall be the authority over the tree of :life, and they may enter by the gates into the city. 15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine :angel to witness to you these things over the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright, the morning :star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And who heareth, let him say, Come. And who thirsteth, let him come: who willeth, let him take water of life freely.
18 I testify unto every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this :booklet, If any shall add to them, God shall add †to him the plagues :written in this :booklet: 19 and if any shall take away from the words of the booklet of this :prophecy :God shall take away his :part from the tree of :life, and out of the holy :city, which are written in this :booklet.
20 Who testifieth these things saith, Yea: I come quickly. Amen: come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with the saints.
