The Revelation to John.
C H A P T E R I .
1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which
God gave unto him,
to show unto his servants - even
the things which must shortly
come to pass; and (which) he
sent and signified by his angel
unto his servant John: 2.
Who bare witness of the word of God,
and to the testimony of Jesus
Christ - (even) of all things
which he saw.
Blessed (is) he that readeth,
that hear the words of this prophecy,
And keep the things
which are written therein:
For the time (is) at hand.
John to the Seven summoned-out communites that are in
Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and
was, and which is to come;
And from the seven Spirits which are before his
And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness,
The firstborn of the dead, and the prince of the
Unto him that loved us, and loosed us from our sins by
And hath made us to be a kingdom, priests unto his
God and Father -
Unto him be glory and the dominion for ever and
Behold, he cometh with clouds;
And every eye shall see him, and they that pierced
And all the tribes of the earth shall wail because
Even so. Amen.
I John, your brother and companion in the tribulation
and kingdom and endurance (which
is) in Jesus, was in the isle
which is called Patmos, because
of the word of God, and the
testimony of Jesus. 10.
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day,
and I heard a great voice behind
me, as of a trumpet, saying:
What thou seest, write in a book,
And send it to the seven summoned-out communities;
Unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto
And unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and
Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.
And having turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
And in the midst of the candlesticks One like unto a
Clothed with a garment down to the foot,
And girt about the breasts with a golden
And his head and his hair were white as white wool,
And his eyes were as a flame of fire;
And his feet like unto burnished brass, as when refined
in a furnace,
And his voice as the voice of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars:
And out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged
And his countenance was as the sun shineth
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.
laid his right hand upon me, saying,
Fear not; I am the first and the last:
And he that liveth, and was dead:
And, behold, I am alive for evermore;
And have the keys of death and Hades.
Write therefore the things which thou hast seen,
And the things which are,
And the things which shall be hereafter.
As for the mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest
in my right hand, and the seven
golden candlesticks - the seven
stars are the angels of the seven
and the candlesticks are the seven
C H A P T E R S I I .
To the angel of the summoned-out community in Ephesus
These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars
That walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know thy works, even thy toil and endurance,
And that thou canst not bear evil men;
But hast tried them which say they are apostles
And hast found them false.
And hast endurance,
And didst bear for my name's sake,
And hast not grown weary.
But I have (this) against thee, that thou hast left thy
Remember therefore from whence thou hast fallen,
And repent and do the first works;
Or else I will come unto thee,
And remove thy candlestick out of his place.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
He that hath an ear, let him
What the Spirit saith
unto the summoned-out
him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of
which is in the Paradise of God.
And to the angel of the summond-out community
in Smyrna write:
These things saith the first and the last
Which was dead, and is alive (again):
I know thy tribulation, and poverty,
But thou art rich;
And the blasphemy of certain of those which say
are Jews and are not,
But are a synagogue of Satan.
Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer:
Behold, the devil is about to cast some of
That ye may be tempted, and have tribulation
Be thou faithful unto death,
And I will give thee the crown of life.
11. He that hath an ear, let

summoned-out community in
These things saith he that hath the two-edged the
13. I know where thou
(Even) where Satan's throne is:
And thou holdest fast my name,
And didst not deny (thy) faith in me,
Even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness,
Who was slain among you,
Where Satan dwelleth.
But I have a few things against thee,
Because thou hast there them some who hold
the teaching of
Who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-block
children of Israel,
To eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit
Thus thou too in like manner hast some who hold the
teaching of the Nicolaitans.
Or else I will come unto thee quickly,
And I will make war against them with the sword of my
He that hath an ear, let him hear
What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out
To him that overcometh will I give of the
And I will give him a white stone,
And upon the stone a new name written,
Which none knoweth but he that receiveth it.
18. And to the angel of
the summoned-out community
in Thyatira write:
These things saith the Son of God,
Whose eyes are like a flame of fire,
And whose feet are like unto burnished brass:
19. I know thy works -
(Even) thy love, and faith, and ministry, and endurance;
And thy last works are more than the first.
20. But I have (this) against
That thou sufferest the woman Jezebel, who calleth
herself a prophetess,
And teacheth and seduceth my servants,
To commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to
And I have given her time that she should repent:
But she hath refused to repent of her fornication.
Behold, I will cast her upon a bed of suffering,
And those who commit adultery with her into great
But her children I will slay with pestilence:
And so all the summoned-out communities shall know
That I am he that searcheth the reins and hearts,
And giveth unto each one of you according to your works.
24. But to you I say, and
to the rest that are in Thyatira,
As many as have not this doctrine,
That know not the deep things of Satan, as they call
I will cast upon you none other burden:
Only hold fast what ye have till I come.
26. And he that overcometh,
even he that keepeth my

To him will I give authority over the nations:

also have received from my Father,
27. And he shall break
them with a rod of iron;
As the potter's
vessels shall they be dashed to pieces:
28. And I will give him
the morning star.
29. He that hath an ear,
let him hear
Spirit saith unto the summoned-out
C H A P T E R I I I.
And unto the angel of the summoned-out community in Sardis
These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God,
And the seven stars:
I know thy works,
That thou hast a name to live, but art dead.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things that remain,
which are ready to die:
For I have found no works of thine fulfilled before
Remember therefore how thou hast received and didst
And keep (them), and repent.
XVI. 15. Behold, I come as a
Blessed is he that watcheth,
and keepeth his
So that he may not walk naked,
And his shame be seen.
If therefore thou dost not watch
I will come as a thief,
And thou shalt not know
At what hour I shall come to
thou hast a few names in Sardis
Which have not defiled their garments,
And they shall walk with me in white;
For they are worthy.
He that overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white
And I will in no wise blot his name out of the book
But I will confess his name before my Father,
And before his angels.
He that hath an ear, let him hear
What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out communities.
And to the angel of the summoned-out community in
These things saith
he that is holy, he that is true,
He that hath the key of David,
That openeth and none closeth,
And closeth and none openeth;
I have set before thee an open door,

8a. I know
That thou hast
a little power,
And yet thou hast
kept my word
And hast not denied
9. Behold, I will cause
them of the synagogue of Satan
Who say they are Jews and are not,
But do lie:
Behold, I will make them to come
And worship before thy feet,
And know that I have loved thee.
10. Because thou hast
kept the word of my endurance,
I also will
keep thee from the hour of tribulation,
come upon all the world,
them that dwell upon the earth.
11. I come quickly: hold
fast what thou hast;
Let none take thy crown.
12. He that overcometh - I will
make him a pillar in the
temple of my God,
And he shall go out 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
from my God,
own new name.
13. He that hath an ear,
let him hear
What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out
unto the angel of the summoned-out community in
These things saith the Amen,
The faithful and true witness,
The beginning of the creation of God:
15. I know thy works
thou art neither cold nor hot:
thou wert cold or hot.
because thou art lukewarm,
cold nor hot,
I will spue
thee out of my mouth.
17. Because thou sayest,
I am rich,
And have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;
And knowest not that thou art (of all creatures)
(most) wretched, and miserable
And poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire,
thou mayest be rich;
And white garments, that thou mayest clothe
And that the shame of thy nakedness be not
And eyesalve to anoint thine eyes, that thou
As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous
therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:
If any man hear my voice and open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup with him,
And he with me.
him that overcometh, I will grant to sit with me on
As I also
have overcome, and sat down with my Father
on his throne.

these things I saw, and behold, a door was opened
in heaven: and the former voice,
which I had heard as of a trumpet
speaking with me, said, Come up
hither, and I will show thee
the things which must come to pass
hereafter. 2. Straightway
I was in the spirit:
And behold a throne was set in heaven,
And on the throne (was) one seated;
And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper stone
And there (was) a rainbow round about the throne,
an emerald to look upon.
And round about the throne (were) four and twenty
And on the thrones four and twenty elders sitting,
Clothed in white garments;
And on their heads (were) crowns of gold.
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and voices
And seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne,
before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass
like unto crystal;
And round about the throne (were) four living creatures,
full of eyes before and behind.
And the first creature (was) like a lion,
And the second creature like a calf,
And the third creature had a face as of a man,
And the fourth creature (was) like a flying eagle.
And the four living creatures had each of them six
And they rest not day and night, saying:
Holy, holy, holy (is) the Lord God Almighty,
Which was, and is, and which is to come.
And when the living creatures give glory and honour
To him that sitteth on the throne,
Who liveth for ever and ever,
The four and twenty elders fall down before him
sitteth on the throne,
And worship him that liveth for ever and ever,
And cast their crowns before the throne,
11. Worthy art thou
our Lord and God,
receive the honour and the glory and the power:
thou didst create all things,
because of thy will they were, and were created.
C H A P T E R V .
And I saw upon the right hand of him that sat on
throne a book written within and on the back, sealed
with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming
with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book,
loose the seals thereof? And no one in heaven,
earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or
thereon. And I wept much, because no one was
worthy to open the book, or to look thereon. And
one of the Elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the
Lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath
prevailed to open the book, and its seven seals. And
saw between the throne and the four living creatures and
the elders, a Lamb standing as though it had been
having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven
of God sent out into all the earth. And he came
and took (it) out of the right hand of him that sat
throne. And when he had taken the book, the
four living creatures and the four and twenty elders
before the Lamb, having each of them a harp and
golden bowels full of incense. And they sang a new
Worthy art thou to take the
And to open the seals thereof;
For thou wast slain,
And hast redeemed unto God with
Men of every tribe and tongue,
and people, and nation,
And hast made them unto our God a kingdom and
And they reign upon the earth.
11. And I saw, and
heard the voice of many angels round
the throne; and the number of them was ten
times ten thousand and thousands of thousands,
12. Saying with a
Worthy is the Lamb that
hath been slain
To receive the power, and
riches, and wisdom,
And might, and honour,
and glory, and blessing.
And every created thing which is in heaven, and
earth, and under the earth, and
on the sea, and all things that
are therein, heard I saying,
Unto him that sitteth
upon the throne, and unto the Lamb,
Be the blessing, and the
honour, and the glory,
And the power, for ever
And the four living creatures said
And the elders fell down and worshipped.
C H A P T E R V I .
I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven
seals, and I heard one of the four living
saying as with a voice of thunder, Come.
And I saw, and behold a white horse,
And he that sat thereon had a bow;
And there was given unto him a crown:
And he went forth conquering and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the
living creature saying, Come.
And another horse, a red one, went forth:
And to him that sat thereon was given to take away
peace of the earth,
And there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third
living creature saying, Come.
And I saw, and beheld, a black horse;
And he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand.
And I heard as itwere a voice in the midst of the
living creatures saying,
A measure of wheat
for a penny,
And three measures
of barley for a penny;
But to the oil and
the wine do not hurt.
And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice
the fourth living creature saying, Come.
And I saw, and behold, a pale horse:
And he that sat thereon was named Pestilence,
And authority was given unto him over the fourth
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath
the altar the souls of them that had
been slain for the
word of God, and for the testimony which
they cried with a loud voice, saying,
How long, O Master, holy and
Dost thou not judge and
avenge our blood
On them that dwell on the
11. And there was
given to each one of them a white robe;
were bidden to rest yet for a little season,
fellow-servants also and their brethren should
be killed even as they.
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;
And the stars of heaven fell to the earth,
As a fig tree casteth her unripe figs,
When shaken of a mighty wind.
the heaven was parted,
Being rolled up as a scroll;
And every mountain and island were moved out of their
the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the
chief captains, and the rich, and the strong, and
bondman and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and
the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains
and to the rocks,
Fall on us, and hide us from the presence of him that
sitteth on the throne,
And from the wrath of the Lamb:
the great day of his wrath is come;
And who is able to stand?
C H A P T E R V I I .
this I saw four angels standing at the four corners
of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that
wind should blow on the earth, or on the sea, or upon
And I saw another angel ascend from the sun-
rising, having a 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, saying, Hurt not
the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we
the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I
the number of them that were sealed: a hundred and
forty and four thousand were sealed out of every tribe of
the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand:
the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand:
Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
these things I saw,
And behold, a great multitude, which no man could
Out of every nation, and (all) tribes and peoples
Standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
Clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying,
Salvation to our God
That sitteth on the throne,
And to the Lamb.
all the angels stood round about the throne and
the elders and the four living
creatures; and they fell
before the throne on their faces,
and worshipped God,
Blessing, and glory,
and honour, and power,
And might, be unto
our God for ever and ever.
one of the elders answered, saying unto me, These
who are clothed in white robes, who are they,
came they? And I said unto him, My Lord,
thou knowest. And he said unto me,
These are they that have come out of the great tribulation,
And they have washed their robes,
And made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
they are before the throne of God;
And they serve him day and night in his temple:
And he that sitteth on the throne shall abide
shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more;
Neither shall the sun smite them any more, nor any
the Lamb that is in the midst of the throne shall be
And shall guide them unto the fountains of the waters
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
C H A P T E R V I I I
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there followed
silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
another angel came and stood by the altar, having
censer; and there was given to him much incense,
should offer it upon the prayers of all saints upon the
golden altar which was before the throne. And the
of the incense, went up from the angel's hand before God
on behalf of the prayers of the saints. And
the angel took
the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar,
it upon the earth: and there followed lightnings, and
voices, and thunders, and an earthquake.
I saw three angels; and unto them were given three
the three angels which had the three trumpets prepared
And I saw, and I heard an eagle flying in the midst
heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe,
them that dwell on the earth, because of the
of the trumpet of the three angels, which are about
And the first (angel) sounded,
And there followed hail and fire, mingled
with blood, and
they were cast upon the earth:
And the third part of earth was burnt up,
And the third part of trees was burnt up,
And all green grass was burnt up.
And the second angel sounded:
And as it were a great mountain burning with fire
into the sea:
And the third part of the sea became blood;
there died the third part of the creatures which were
in the sea - that had life;
And the third part of the ships were destroyed.
And the third angel sounded:
And there fell from heaven a great star, burning
as a torch,
And it fell on a third part of the waters,
and on the fountains
the third part of the waters became like wormwood;
And many men died of the waters, because they
And the fourth angel sounded:
And the third part of the sun was smitten,
And the third part of the moon, and the third
part of the
So that the third part of them was darkened,
And the day did not shine for the third part
of it, nor
likewise the night.
C H A P T E R I X .
And the first angel sounded:
And I saw a star fall from heaven to the earth,
And there was given unto him the key of the pit
And he opened the pit of the abyss;
And there went up a smoke from the pit,
As the smoke of a great furnace;
And the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke
And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the
And power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth
And it was said unto them that they should not hurt
grass of the earth,
Nor any green thing, nor any tree; but only the men
That had not the seal of God on their foreheads.
And it was given given them that they should not
But that they should be tormented five months:
And their torment was as the torment of a scorpion,
it striketh a man.
And in those days men shall seek death,
And shall not find it;
And they shall desire to die,
But death shall flee from them.
And the forms of the locusts were like unto horses
prepared for war;
And on their heads were as it were crowns like gold,
And their faces were as the faces of men.
And they had hair as the hair of women,
teeth were as those of lions.
And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of
the sound of their wings was as the sound of
of many horses rushing to war.
And they had tails like unto scorpions, and stings;
And in their tails is their power
To hurt men five months.
have a king over them as king the angel of the abyss:
His name in Hebrew is Abaddon.
12. The first
Woe is past; behold, there come yet two Woes
And the second angel sounded:
And I heard a voice from the horns of the golden
which is before God,
to the second angel who had the trumpet,
Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river
the four angels were loosed,
Which had been prepared for an hour and a day and
month and year,
In order to kill the third part of mankind.

twice ten thousand times ten thousand:
heard the numbers of them: and so I saw the horses in
And them that sat on them.
And they that sat on them had breastplates of fire and

And from their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
these three plagues was the third part of mankind
By the fire and the smoke and by the brimstone, which
issued from their mouths;
19. For their
power of the horses is in their mouths; and with
them they do hurt.
20. And the
rest of mankind, which had not been killed by
Did not even repent of the works of their hands,
So as not to worship demons, and the idols
Of gold, and silver, and brass, and of stone, and
Which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk:
they repented not of their murders, nor of their
Nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
C H A P T E R X .
I saw another strong angel coming down from
clothed with a cloud, and the rainbow was upon
his head, and his face was as the sun, and the legs were
pillars of fire. And he had in his hand a little book
open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his
foot on the earth; And he cried with a loud voice, as
lion roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders
their voices. And when the seven thunders
(their voices), I was about to write: and I heard
a voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the
thunders uttered, and write them not. And
the angel that I saw standing upon the sea and upon the
lifted up his right hand to heaven, And sware by
him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heaven
the things that are therein, and the earth and the
that are therein, and the sea, and the things
that are therein, that there shall be time no longer.
But in the days of the voice of the third angel,
he shall sound, then is the mystery of God finished,
to the good tydings which he hath declared to his
the prophets. And the voice which I heard from
heaven spake unto me again and said, Go, take the book
which is open in the hand of the angel that standeth upon
sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel
bade him give me the little book. And he saith
me, Take it, and eat it up, and it shall make thy belly
but in thy mouth it shall be sweet as honey. And
took the little book out of the hand of the angel and ate
up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey, and when I
eaten it my belly was made bitter. And they said
me, Thou must prophesy again concerning many
and nations, and tongues, and kings.
C H A P T E R X I .
And he gave me a reed like unto a rod, saying,
and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them
worship therein. But the court that is without the
temple leave out, and measure it not; for it hath been
unto the nations: and the holy city they shall
under foot forty and two months. And I will
appoint my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a
two hundred and threescore days, clothed in
These are the two olive trees, and the two
candlesticks, which stand before the Lord of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out

the power to shut the heaven, that it rain not
during the days of their prophecy: and they have power
over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite
earth with every plague, as often as they will. And
when they have finished their testimony, the beast that
cometh up out of the abyss shall make war with them,
overcome them, and kill them. And their dead
bodies (shall lie) in the street of the great city, that
is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their
was crucified. And some of the peoples and tribes
and tongues and nations look upon their dead bodies
three days and an half, and suffer not their dead bodies
to be put in graves.
And they that dwell in the land
rejoice over them, and
make merry; and they shall send gifts one to another;
these two prophets had tormented them that
in the land. And after the three days and an half
breath of life from God entered into them, and they
upon their feet, and great fear fell upon them that
them. And they heard a great voice from heaven
unto them, Come up hither. And they went up
heaven in the cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and
tenth part of the city fell; and there were killed
the earthquake seven thousand persons: and the
were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of
The second Woe is past: behold, the
the third angel sounded; and there followed
great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become
kingdoms of our Lord, and
of his Christ;
And he shall reign for ever and
And the four and twenty elders, which sit before
on their thrones, fell on their faces, and worshipped

And there was opened the temple of God that is in
heaven; and there was seen in his temple the
his covenant; and there followed lightnings,
and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great
C H A P T E R X I I .
And a great sign was seen in heaven; a woman
with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
her head a crown of twelve stars. And she was
with child, and cried out in her travail and pain to be
And there was seen another sign in heaven;
behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and
horns, and upon his head seven diadems. And
his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven,
cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before
the woman that was ready to be delivered, that he might
devour her child when she was delivered. And she
was delivered of a son, a man child, who shall break
the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was
up to God and to his throne. And the woman
into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared
of God, that there they should nourish her a thousand
hundred and threescore days.
And war burst forth in heaven:
and his angels had to war with the dragon;
the dragon warred and his angels; and he prevailed

And the great dragon was cast down, that old serpent,
He that is called the Devil and Satan,
deceiveth the whole world -
was cast down to the earth,
his angels were cast down with him.
And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying,
Now is come the salvation, and the power
And the kingdom of our God, and the
For the accuser of our brethren is cast
Which accuseth them before our God
day and night.
And they overcame him because of the blood of the
And because of the word of their testimony,
Seeing that they loved not their lives even unto death.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell
Woe unto the earth and the sea!;
For the devil is gone down to you with great wrath,
Knowing that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the
earth, he persecuted the woman that had brought forth
man child. And there was given to the woman the
two wings of the great eagle that she might fly into the
wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a
time, and times, and half a time, because of the serpent.
And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman
water as a river, that he might cause her to be swept away
by the flood. But the earth helped the woman,
earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river which
dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon waxed
wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with
the rest of her seed, which keep the commandments of
God, and hold the testimony of Jesus

upon the sand of the sea.

from the sea I saw a beast coming up
ten horns and seven heads,
on his heads name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard,
his feet were as the feet of a bear,
his mouth as the mouth of a lion:
the dragon gave him his power,
his throne, and great authority.
And (I saw) one of his heads slain as it were unto
his deadly wound was healed:
the whole earth wondered * after the beast * ;
And they worshipped the dragon
Because he had given his power to the beast;
they worshipped the beast, saying,
Who is like unto the beast?
And who can war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great
things and blasphemies;
And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God,
And there was given unto him authority to act with
forty and two months.
And there was given unto him authority to make war

there was given unto him authority over every tribe
and people and language and nation.

saw another beast coming up out of the earth;
he had two horns like a lamb,
But * he spake as a dragon *.

13. And I
heard a voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed
are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from
labours; and their works go with them.
1. And I saw, and behold the Lamb standing
with him a hundred forty and four thousand,

And I heard a voice from heaven,
the voice of many waters,

And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having
an eternal gospel to proclaim unto them that

earth, and unto every nation and tribe and tongue
people, saying with a loud voice,
Fear God, and give him
For the hour of his judgment
And worship him that made

Fallen, fallen is Babylon, the great,
Which had made all the nations to drink

And another angel, a third, followed them, saying

wrath of God,
Which is mingled sheer in the cup

went forth from the altar, and cried
with a great
voice to him that had the sharp sickle
Thrust in thy sickle,
And gather the clusters of the vine of the earth;
For her grapes are fully ripe.
he thrust his sickle into the earth,
And gathered the vintage of the earth,
And cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
the winepress was trodden without the city,
blood came out of the winepress, even unto the
horse's bridles -
a distance of one thousand six hundred furlongs.
C H A P T E R X V .
2. And I saw
as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire;
them that had been victorious over the beast, and
over his image, and over the number of his name,
by the sea of glass, having the harps of God,
and singing the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvellous

Who shall not fear thee,
And glorify thy name?
For thou alone art holy;
For all the nations shall come
And worship before thee;

And after these things I saw, and *, behold, the temple
of the testimony in heaven * was opened: and
angels came forth from the temple, clothed in fine
linen, pure, bright, and girt about the breasts with golden
And one of the four living creatures gave unto
seven angels seven golden bowels full of the wrath of
who liveth for ever and ever.
And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory
God, and from his power; and none could enter the temple

C H A P T E R X V I .
And I heard a great voice from the temple
to the seven angels, Go and pour out the seven bowels of
wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went
and poured out his bowl upon the earth; and it became
noisome and grievous sore upon men. And the
second poured out his bowl upon the sea; and it became
as of a dead man: and every living soul died, (even)
the thing that were in the sea. And the third
out his bowl upon the rivers and the fountains of waters,
they became blood. And the fourth poured out
bowl upon the sun; and it was given unto him to
men with fire. And men were scorched with
great heat, and blasphemed the name of God which
hath the power over these plagues, and they repented not

And the sixth poured out his bowl upon

he gathered them together to the place which is called

voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It
18. is done.
And there followed lightnings, and voices and
and there followed a great earthquake, such as
has not been since men were upon the earth, so
an earthquake, so great. And the cities of the

These have one purpose, and they give their power

After these things I saw another angel coming

up by his glory. And he cried with a mightily

And that ye receive not of her plagues.

her, when they look upon the smoke of her burning,

Woe, woe to the great city,
