Revelation 1

1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, to show to his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel to his servant John: 2Who bore record of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ and of all things that he saw.

3Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written here: for the time is at hand. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be to you and peace, from him who is and who was and who is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten from the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth. To him who loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And has made us kings and priests to God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him and they also who pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

9I am John, who is also your brother and companion in trouble and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day and heard a great voice as of a trumpet behind me, 11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia; to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamos and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.12And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned, I saw seven golden lamp stands; 13And in the midst of the seven lamp stood one like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like fine brass, as if they were burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And he had seven stars in his right hand: and a sharp two edged sword went out of his mouth: and his countenance was as the sun shining in its strength. 17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand on me, saying to me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he who lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and I have the keys of Hades and death. 19Write the things which you have seen and the things which are and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lamp stands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven lamp stands which you saw are the seven churches.

Chapter 2

1To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things says he who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lamp stands; 2I know your works, and your labor and your patience and how you can not bear those who are evil: and you have tried those who say they are apostles and are not and have found them liars: 3And have borne, and have patience and for my name's sake have labored and have not fainted. 4Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love. 5Remember therefore from where you are fallen and repent and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your lamp stand out of its place, except you repent. 6But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

8And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things says the first and the last, who was dead and is alive; 9I know your works and trouble and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, so that you may be tried; and you shall have trouble ten days: be faithful to death and I will give you a crown of life. 11He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; He who overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.

12And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things says he who has the sharp sword with two edges; 13I know your works and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is: and you hold fast my name and have not denied my faith, even in those days in which Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication. 15So you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16Repent; or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna and will give him a white stone and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows except he who receives it.

18And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things says the Son of God, who has his eyes like to a flame of fire and his feet are like fine brass; 19I know your works and love, and service and faith and your patience and your works; and the last is more than the first. 20But I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols. 21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she did not repent. 22Behold, I will cast her into a bed and those who commit adultery with her into great trouble, except they repent of their deeds. 23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he who searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works. 24But I say to you and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put on you no other burden. 25But that which you have already, hold fast till I come. 26And he who overcomes and keeps my works to the end, to him I will give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be broken to shivers as the vessels of a potter: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star. 29He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Chapter 3

1And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, but are dead. 2Be watchful and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God. 3Remember therefore how you have received and heard and hold fast and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you. 4You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 5He who overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white clothing; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. 6He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things says he who is holy, he who is true, he who has the key of David, he who opens and no man shuts; and shuts and no man opens; 8I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength and have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet and to know that I have loved you. 10Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come on all the world, to try those who dwell on the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold fast what you have, so that no man takes your crown. 12He who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall go out no more: and I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write on him my new name. 13He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

14And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. 16So then because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth. 17Because you say, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing; and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked: 18I counsel you to buy gold tried in the fire from me, so that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be clothed and so that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, so that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him and he with me. 21To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Chapter 4

1After this I looked and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up here and I will show you things which must be hereafter. 2And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven and one sat on the throne. 3And he who sat was to look on like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like an emerald. 4And round about the throne were twenty four seats: and on the seats I saw twenty four elders sitting, clothed in white clothing; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 5And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: and in the midst of the throne and round about the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind. 7And the first living creature was like a lion and the second living creature like a calf and the third living creature had a face like a man and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.

8And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. 9And when those living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who sat on the throne, who lives for ever and ever, 10The twenty four elders fall down before him who sat on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.

Chapter 5

1And I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loose its seals? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, nor under the earth, was able to open the book, nor to look in it. 4And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, nor to look in it. 5And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book and to loose its seven seals.

6And I beheld and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been killed, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne. 8And when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. 9And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals: for you were killed and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation; 10And have made us kings and priests to our God: and we shall reign on the earth. 11And I beheld and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the living creatures and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands; 12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb who was killed to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing. 13And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea and all who are in them, I heard saying, Blessing and honor and glory and power, be to him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb for ever and ever. 14And the four living creatures said, Amen. And the twenty four elders fell down and worshipped him who lives for ever and ever.

Chapter 6

1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard, as the noise of thunder, one of the four living creatures saying, Come and see. 2And I saw and behold a white horse: and he who sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering and to conquer.

3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, Come and see. 4And another horse went out that was red: and power was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that they should kill one another: and there was given to him a great sword.

5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. And I beheld and lo a black horse; and he who sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures say, A measure of wheat for a penny and three measures of barley for a penny; and see that you do not hurt the oil and the wine.

7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, Come and see. 8And I looked and behold a pale horse: and his name who sat on him was Death and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with disease and with the beasts of the earth.

9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who were killed for the word of God and for the testimony which they held: 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brothers, who would be killed as they were, would be fulfilled.

12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth and the great men and the rich men and the chief captains and the mighty men and every bondman and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that the wind would not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3Saying, Do not hurt the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4And I heard the number of those who were sealed: a hundred forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed. 5Of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed. 6Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Napthali twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Manassah twelve thousand were sealed. 7Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed. 8Of the tribe of Zebulon twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed. 9After this I beheld and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations and kindreds and people and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne and about the elders and the four living creatures and fell before the throne on their faces and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13And one of the elders answered, saying to me, Who are these who are arrayed in white robes? and where did they come from? 14And I said to him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are those who came out of great trouble and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple: and he who sits on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall not hunger any more, nor thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall feed them and shall lead them to fountains of living waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Chapter 8

1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and seven trumpets were given to them . 3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he would offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. 4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar and cast it into the earth: and there were voices and thunderings and lightnings and an earthquake. 6And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 The first angel sounded and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood and they were cast on the earth: and the third part of trees was burned up and all green grass was burned up.

8And the second angel sounded and as a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10And the third angel sounded and a great star from heaven fell, burning as a lamp, and it fell on the third part of the rivers and on the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

12And the fourth angel sounded and the third part of the sun was struck and the third part of the moon and the third part of the stars; so as if the third part of them was darkened and the day did not shine for a third part of it and the night likewise.

13And I beheld and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to sound!

1And the fifth angel sounded and I saw a star fall from heaven to the earth: and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3And locusts came out of the smoke on the earth: and to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And it was commanded to them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; but only those men who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads. 5And it was given to 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 he strikes a man. 6And in those days shall men seek death and shall not find it; and shall desire to die and death shall flee from them. 7And the shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads were even as crowns like gold and their faces were as the faces of men. 8And they had hair like the hair of women and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9And they had breastplates, even as breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10And they had tails like scorpions and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11And they had a king over them, who is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has his name Apollyon. 12One woe is past; and, behold, two woes more come after this.

13And the sixth angel sounded and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, for killing the third part of men. 16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fire and of jacinth and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19For their power is in their mouth and in their tails: for their tails were like serpents, and had heads and with them they hurt. 20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils and idols of gold and silver and brass and stone and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk: 21Nor did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

1And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was on his head and his face was even as the sun and his feet like pillars of fire: 2And he had a little book open in his hand and he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the earth, 3And cried with a loud voice, even as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered and do not write them. 5And the angel whom I saw stand on the sea and on the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6And swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it and the earth and the things that are it and the sea and the things which are in it, that time should be no longer: 7But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.

8And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth. 9And I went to the angel and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me, Take it and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be sweet as honey in your mouth. 10And I took the little book out of the angel's hand and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 11And he said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.

1And there was given me a reed like a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there. 2But the court which is outside the temple leave out and do not measure it; for it is given to the Gentiles: and they shall tread the holy city under foot forty two months.

3And I will give power to my two witnesses and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6These have power to shut heaven, so that it does not rain in the days of their prophecy: and they have power over waters to turn them to blood and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them and shall overcome them and kill them. 8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And those of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half and shall not allow their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10And those who dwell on the earth shall rejoice over them and make merry and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth. 11And after three and a half days the Spirit of life from God entered into them and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13And the same hour there was a great earthquake and the tenth part of the city fell and in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed : and the remnant were frightened and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14The second woe is past; behold, the third woe comes quickly.

15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16And the twenty four elders, who sat before God on their seats, fell on their faces and worshipped God, 17Saying, We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who is, and was and is to come; because you have taken to you your great power and have reigned. 18And the nations were angry and your wrath is come and the time of the dead, that they should be judged and the time that you should destroy those who destroy the earth and should give a reward to your servants the prophets and to the saints and those small and great who fear your name;. 19And the temple of God was opened in heaven and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings and voices and thunderings and an earthquake and great hail.

Chapter 12

1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars: 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth and pained to be delivered. 3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up to God and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, so that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred sixty days. 7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8And did not prevail; nor was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him. 10And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them day and night before our God. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.

12Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. 13And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child. 14And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15And the serpent cast water out of his mouth as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was angry with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

1And I stood on the sand of the sea and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns and on his horns ten crowns and on his heads the name of blasphemy. 2And the beast which I saw was like a leopard and his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power and his seat and great authority. 3And I saw one of his heads as wounded to death; but his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4And they worshipped the dragon who gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty two months. 6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle and those who dwell in heaven. 7And it was given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them: and power was given to him over all kindreds and tongues and nations. 8And all who dwell on the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb killed from the foundation of the world. 9If any man has an ear, let him hear. 10He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceives those who dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword and lived. 15And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, except he who had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred sixty six.

Chapter 14

1And I looked and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion and with him a hundred forty four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3And they sang even as a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred forty four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth. 4These are those who were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb whereever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. 5And no guile was found in their mouth: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

6And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth and to every nation and kindred and tongue and people, 7Saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him who made heaven and earth and the sea and the fountains of waters. 8And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worships the beast and his image and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb: 11And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image and who ever receives the mark of his name. 12Here is the patience of the saints: here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

13And I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on: Yes, the Spirit says, that they may rest from their labors; and their works follow them. 14And I looked and behold a white cloud and on the cloud one sat like the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle and reap: for the time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16And he who sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. 17And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20And the winepress was trodden without the city and blood came out of the winepress, even to the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand six hundred furlongs.

Chapter 15

1And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2And I saw even as a sea of glass mingled with fire: and those who had gotten the victory over the beast and over his image and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3And they sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints. 4Who shall not fear you, O Lord and glorify your name? for you only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments are made manifest.

5And after that I looked and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever. 8And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Chapter 16

1And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways and pour out the vials of the wrath of God on the earth.

2And the first went and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men who had the mark of the beast and on those who worshipped his image.

3And the second angel poured out his vial on the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

4And the third angel poured out his vial on the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5And I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, O Lord, who is and was and shall be, because you have judged thus. 6For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets and you have given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 7And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

8And the fourth angel poured out his vial on the sun; and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9And men were scorched with great heat and blasphemed the name of God, who has power over these plagues: and they did not repent to give him glory.

10And the fifth angel poured out his vial on the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but did not repent of their deeds.

12And the sixth angel poured out his vial on the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, who go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he who watches and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame. 16And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

17And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18And there were voices and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were on the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19And the great city was divided into three parts and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20And every island fled away and the mountains were not found. 21And there fell on men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague of the hail was exceedingly great.

Chapter 17

1And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven vials and talked with me, saying to me, Come here; I will show to you the judgment of the great whore who sits on many waters: 2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit on a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet color and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE Earth. 6And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

7And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast who carries her, who has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that you saw was and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition: and those who dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was and is not and yet is. 9And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. 10And they are seven kings: five are fallen and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was and is not, even he is the eighth and is of the seven and goes into perdition. 12And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but they receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind and shall give their power and strength to the beast.

14These shall make war with the Lamb and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords and King of kings: and those who are with him are called and chosen and faithful. 15And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. 16And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17For God has put in their hearts to fulfil his will and to agree and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

Chapter 18

1And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lit up with his glory. 2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen and is become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, so that you are not partakers of her sins and so that you do not receive of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached to heaven and God has remembered her iniquities. 6Reward her even as she rewarded you and double to her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled, fill to her double. 7As much as she has glorified herself and lived deliciously, give her so much torment and sorrow: for she said in her heart, I sit a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. 8Therefore her plagues shall come in one day, death and mourning and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for the Lord God is strong who judges her.

9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is your judgment come. 11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their merchandise any more: 12The merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stones and of pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet and all sweet wood and all manner vessels of ivory and all manner vessels of most precious wood and of brass and iron and marble, 13And cinnamon and odors and ointments and frankincense and wine and oil and fine flour and wheat and beasts and sheep and horses and chariots and slaves and souls of men. 14And the fruits that your soul lusted after are departed from you and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from you and you shall find them no more at all. 15The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17For in one hour so great riches is come to nothing. And every shipmaster and all the company in ships and sailors and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like to this great city! 19And they cast dust on their heads and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her costliness! for in one hour she is made desolate. 20Rejoice over her, you heaven and you holy apostles and prophets; for God has avenged you on her. 21And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down and shall be found no more at all. 22And the voice of harpers and musicians and of pipers and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in you; and no craftsman, of what ever craft, shall be found any more in you; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in you; 23And the light of a lamp shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived. 24And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all that were killed on the earth.

Chapter 19

1And after these things I heard a great voice of many people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation and glory and honor and power, to the Lord our God: 2For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, who corrupted the earth with her fornication and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 3And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. 4And the twenty four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

5And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants and you who fear him, both small and great. 6And I heard even as the voice of a great multitude and as the voice of many waters and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. 7Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come and his wife has made herself ready. 8And it was granted to her that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of God. 10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See that you do not do it: I am your fellowservant and of your brothers who have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

11And I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse; and he who sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies which were in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, so that with it he should strike the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS. 17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God; 18That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse and against his army.

20And the beast was taken and with him the false prophet who wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21And the remnant were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Chapter 20

1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan and bound him a thousand years, 3And cast him into the bottomless pit and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he would deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years would be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4And I saw thrones and they sat on them and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God and who had not worshipped the beast, nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years. 7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9And they went up on the breadth of the earth and compassed the camp of the saints about and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10And the devil who deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11And I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead who were in it; and death and hades delivered up the dead who were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15And who ever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Chapter 21

1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5And he who sat on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him who thirsts of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7He who overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God and he shall be my son. 8But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

9And one of the seven angels came to me who had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11Having the glory of God: and her light was like a most precious stone, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12And it had a great and high wall, and had twelve gates and at the gates twelve angels and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 Three gates on the east ; three gates on the north; three gates on the south; and three gates on the west. 14And the wall of the city had twelve foundations and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15And he who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city and its gates and its wall. 16And the city lies foursquare and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17And he measured its wall, a hundred forty four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18And the building of its wall was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, even as transparent glass. 22And I saw no temple there: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its templet. 23And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God lightened it and the Lamb is its light. 24And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light: and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25And its gates shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. 27And in no way shall there enter into it any thing that defiles nor what ever works abomination, or makes a lie: but those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Chapter 22

1And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the midst of its street and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bears twelve kinds of fruits, and yields her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there; and they need no lamp, nor light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

6And he said to me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show to his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he who keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9Then he said to me, See you do it not: for I am your fellowservant and of your brothers the prophets and of those who keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he said to me, Do not seal the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He who is unjust, let him still be unjust: and he who is filthy, let him still be filthy: and he who is righteous, let him still be righteous: and he who is holy, let him still be holy . 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are those who do his commandments, so that they may have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For outside are dogs and sorcerers and whoremongers and murderers and idolaters and whoever loves and makes a lie. 16I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him who hears say, Come. And let him who is athirst come. And who ever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18For I testify to every man who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life and out of the holy city and from the things which are written in this book.

20He who testifies these things said, Surely I come quickly.Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. <
