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.    

      3.        Blessed (is) he that readeth,      
                 And they that hear the words of this prophecy,
                 And keep the things which are written therein:
                 For the time (is) at hand.

      4.  John to the Seven summoned-out communites that are in
               Asia -

           Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which
               was, and which is to come;
           And from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
      5.  And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness,
           The firstborn of the dead, and the prince of the kings of
               the earth.

         Unto him that loved us, and loosed us from our sins by
             his blood,

      6.  And hath made us to be a kingdom, priests unto his
               God and Father -
           Unto him be glory and the dominion for ever and
               ever.  Amen.

      7.  Behold, he cometh with clouds;
           And every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him.
           And all the tribes of the earth shall wail because of him.
               Even so.  Amen.

      9.  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:

      11.  What thou seest, write in a book,
             And send it to the seven summoned-out communities;
             Unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum,
             And unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
                 Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

      12.  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.

             And having turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
      13.  And in the midst of the candlesticks One like unto a son
                 of man,
             Clothed with a garment down to the foot,
             And girt about the breasts with a golden girdle.

      14.  And his head and his hair were white as white wool,
             And his eyes were as a flame of fire;

      15.  And his feet like unto burnished brass, as when refined
                 in a  furnace,
             And his voice as the voice of many waters.

      16.  And he had in his right hand seven stars:
             And out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword:
             And his countenance was as the sun shineth in his
      17.  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.  And he
laid his right hand upon me, saying,

             Fear not; I am the first and the last:
      18.  And he that liveth, and was dead:
             And, behold, I am alive for evermore;
             And have the keys of death and Hades.

      19.  Write therefore the things which thou hast seen,
             And the things which are,
             And the things which shall be hereafter.

      20.  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 summoned-out communities;
and the candlesticks are the seven summoned-out communities.

C H A P T E R S   I I .

      1.  To the angel of the summoned-out community in Ephesus

           These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his
               right hand,
           That walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

      2.  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 are
           And hast found them false.

      3.  And hast endurance,
           And didst bear for my name's sake,
           And hast not grown weary.

      4.  But I have (this) against thee, that thou hast left thy first

      5.  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.

      6.  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

      7.          He that hath an ear, let him hear
                   What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out
      To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,
which is in the Paradise of God.

      8.  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):

      9.  I know thy tribulation, and poverty,
           But thou art rich;
           And the blasphemy of certain of those which say they
               are Jews and are not,
           But are a synagogue of Satan.

    10.  Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer:
           Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into
           That ye may be tempted, and have tribulation for ten

           Be thou faithful unto death,
           And I will give thee the crown of life.

    11.  He that hath an ear, let him hear
           What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out
           He that overcometh shall not be hurt by the second

    12.  And to the angel of the summoned-out community in
               Pergamum write:

           These things saith he that hath the two-edged the sharp

    13.  I know where thou dwellest,
           (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.

    14.  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 before the
               children of Israel,
           To eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication.    

    15.  Thus thou too in like manner hast some who hold the
               teaching of the Nicolaitans.    

    16.  Repent; therefore,
           Or else I will come unto thee quickly,
           And I will make war against them with the sword of my

    17.  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 hidden manna,
            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 thee,
           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

    21.  And I have given her time that she should repent:
           But she hath refused to repent of her fornication.    

    22.  Behold, I will cast her upon a bed of suffering,
           And those who commit adultery with her into great
    23.  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

    25.  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
              works unto the end -
           To him will I give authority over the nations:   
  27c.  As I 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
           What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out

C H A P T E R   I I I.

      1.  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.

      2.  Be watchful, and strengthen the things that remain, (but)
               which are ready to die:
           For I have found no works of thine fulfilled before my

      3.  Remember therefore how thou hast received and didst
           And keep (them), and repent.

XVI. 15.  Behold, I come as a thief:
                 Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his
                  So that he may not walk naked,
                  And his shame be seen.

    III. 3c.  If therefore thou dost not watch
                  I will come as a thief,
                  And thou shalt not know
                  At what hour I shall come to thee.

      4.  But 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.
      5.  He that overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white
           And I will in no wise blot his name out of the book of life,
           But I will confess his name before my Father,
           And before his angels.
      6.  He that hath an ear, let him hear
           What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out communities.
      7.  And to the angel of the summoned-out community in
               Philadelphia write:

           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;
    8b.  Behold I have set before thee an open door,
    8c.  Which none can shut.

    8a.  I know thy works,
           That thou hast a little power,
           And yet thou hast kept my word
           And hast not denied my name.

      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,
           Which shall come upon all the world,
           To tempt 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 heaven
               from my God,
           And mine own new name. 

    13.  He that hath an ear, let him hear
           What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out communities.

    14.  And unto the angel of the summoned-out community in
               Laodicea write:

           These things saith the Amen,
           The faithful and true witness,
           The beginning of the creation of God:

    15.  I know thy works
           That thou art neither cold nor hot:
           I would thou wert cold or hot.

    16.  So because thou art lukewarm,
           And neither 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) the
               (most) wretched, and miserable
           And poor, and blind, and naked:

    18.  I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that
               thou mayest be rich;
           And white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself,
           And that the shame of thy nakedness be not made
           And eyesalve to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see.

    19.  As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous
               therefore, and repent.

    20.  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.

    21.  To him that overcometh, I will grant to sit with me on
               my throne,
            As I also have overcome, and sat down with my Father
                on his throne.

    22.  He that hath an ear, let him hear
           What the Spirit saith unto the summoned-out communities.

C H A P T E R   I V .

      1.  After 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;

      3.  And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper stone and
               a sardine,
           And there (was) a rainbow round about the throne, like
               an emerald to look upon.

      4.  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.

      5.  And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and voices
               and thunders:
           And seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne,
      6.  And 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.

      7. 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.

      8.  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.

      9.  And when the living creatures give glory and honour
               and thanks
           To him that sitteth on the throne,
           Who liveth for ever and ever,

     10.  The four and twenty elders fall down before him that
                sitteth on the throne,
            And worship him that liveth for ever and ever,
            And cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

     11.  Worthy art thou our Lord and God,
             To receive the honour and the glory and the power:
             For thou didst create all things,
             And because of thy will they were, and were created. 

C H A P T E R   V .

      1.      And I saw upon the right hand of him that sat on the
           throne a book written within and on the back, sealed
      2.  with seven seals.  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming
           with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and
      3.  to loose the seals thereof?  And no one in heaven, or on
           earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to
      4.  look thereon.  And I wept much, because no one was
      5.  found 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
      6.  prevailed to open the book, and its seven seals.  And I
           saw between the throne and the four living creatures and
           the elders, a Lamb standing as though it had been slain,
           having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven
      7.  spirits of God sent out into all the earth.  And he came
           and took (it) out of the right hand of him that sat on
      8.  the throne.  And when he had taken the book, the
           four living creatures and the four and twenty elders fell
      9.  down before the Lamb, having each of them a harp and
           golden bowels full of incense.  And they sang a new
           song, saying,
                 Worthy art thou to take the book,
                  And to open the seals thereof;
                  For thou wast slain,

                  And hast redeemed unto God with thy blood
                  Men of every tribe and tongue, and people, and nation,
    10.         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
           about the throne; and the number of them was ten
           thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands,
    12.  Saying with a loud voice:
                   Worthy is the Lamb that hath been slain
                   To receive the power, and riches, and wisdom,
                   And might, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

    13.  And every created thing which is in heaven, and on the
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 ever.
    14.    And the four living creatures said
             And the elders fell down and worshipped. 

C H A P T E R   V I .

      1.  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven
               seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures
               saying as with a voice of thunder, Come.

      2.  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.

      3.  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
               living creature saying, Come.

      4.  And another horse, a red one, went forth:
           And to him that sat thereon was given to take away the
               peace of the earth,
           And there was given unto him a great sword.

      5.  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.

      6.  And I heard as itwere a voice in the midst of the four
               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.

      7.  And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of
               the fourth living creature saying, Come.

      8.  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 part of
               the earth.

      9.  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 held:      

    10.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying,

                 How long, O Master, holy and true,
                 Dost thou not judge and avenge our blood
                 On them that dwell on the earth?

    11.  And there was given to each one of them a white robe;
           And they were bidden to rest yet for a little season,
           Until their fellow-servants also and their brethren should
               be fulfilled,
           That should be killed even as they.

    12.  And I saw when he opened the sixth seal:

           And there was a great earthquake;
           And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair,
           And the whole moon became as blood;

    13.  And the stars of heaven fell to the earth,
           As a fig tree casteth her unripe figs,
           When shaken of a mighty wind.

    14.  And the heaven was parted,
           Being rolled up as a scroll;
           And every mountain and island were moved out of their
    15.  And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the
           chief captains, and the rich, and the strong, and every
           bondman and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and
    16.  in 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:

    17.  For the great day of his wrath is come;
           And who is able to stand? 

C H A P T E R   V I I .

      1.  After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners
           of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that no
           wind should blow on the earth, or on the sea, or upon any
      2.  tree.  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 have sealed
      4.  the servants of our God in their foreheads.  And I heard
           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.

      5.  Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand:
           Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand:
      7.  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:
      8.  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:
    5c.  Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand:
      6.  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.

      9.  After these things I saw,
           And behold, a great multitude, which no man could
           Out of every nation, and (all) tribes and peoples and
           Standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
           Clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
    10.  And cried with a loud voice, saying,
           Salvation to our God
           That sitteth on the throne,
                  And to the Lamb.

    11.  And 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,
    12.                                       Amen:
                   Blessing, and glory, and wisdom,
                    And thanksgiving, and honour, and power,
                    And might, be unto our God for ever and ever.

    13.  And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, These
           who are clothed in white robes, who are they, and
    14.  whence 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.

    15.  Therefore 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 upon them.

    16.  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more;
           Neither shall the sun smite them any more, nor any heat.

    17.  For the Lamb that is in the midst of the throne shall be
               their shepherd,
           And shall guide them unto the fountains of the waters of
               of life:

           And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

      1.      And when he had opened the seventh seal, there followed a
      3.  silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.  And
           another angel came and stood by the altar, having a golden
           censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he
           should offer it upon the prayers of all saints upon the
      4.  golden altar which was before the throne.  And the smoke
           of the incense, went up from the angel's hand before God
      5.  on behalf of the prayers of the saints.  And the angel took
           the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast
           it upon the earth: and there followed lightnings, and
           voices, and thunders, and an earthquake.

      2.  And I saw three angels; and unto them were given three
      6.  And the three angels which had the three trumpets prepared
               to sound.
    13.  And I saw, and I heard an eagle flying in the midst of
           heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to
           them that dwell on the earth,  because of the voices
           of the trumpet of the three angels, which are about to

      7.        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.

      8.        And the second angel sounded:
           And as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast
               into the sea:
           And the third part of the sea became blood;
      9.  And 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.

    10.        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
               of waters,
    11.  And the third part of the waters became like wormwood;
           And many men died of the waters, because they had
               become bitter.

    12.        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 .

      1.        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 of the

      2.  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 of
               the pit.

      3.  And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth;
           And power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth
               have power.

      4.  And it was said unto them that they should not hurt the
               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.

      5.  And it was given given them that they should not kill them,
           But that they should be tormented five months:
           And their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when
               it striketh a man.

      6.  And in those days men shall seek death,
           And shall not find it;
           And they shall desire to die,
           But death shall flee from them.

      7.  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.

      8.  And they had hair as the hair of women,
           And their teeth were as those of lions.

      9.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron.
           And the sound of their wings was as the sound of
           (Yea) of many horses rushing to war.

    10.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and stings;
            And in their tails is their power
            To hurt men five months.

    11.  They 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

    13.        And the second angel sounded:
           And I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar
               which is before God,
    14.  Saying to the second angel who had the trumpet,
           Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river

    15.  And 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.

    16.  And the numbers of the armies of the horsemen were
               twice ten thousand times ten thousand:

    17.  I heard the numbers of them: and so I saw the horses in
               the vision,
           And them that sat on them.

           And they that sat on them had breastplates of fire and
               and brimstone:
           And the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions;
           And from their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

    18.  By 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
               these plagues,
           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 of
           Which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21.  And 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 .

      1.  And I saw another strong angel coming down from
           heaven clothed with a cloud, and the rainbow was upon
           his head, and his face was as the sun, and the legs were
      2.  as pillars of fire.  And he had in his hand a little book
           open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his legs were
      3.  left foot on the earth; And he cried with a loud voice, as
           a lion roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders
      4.  uttered their voices.  And when the seven thunders
           uttered (their voices), I was about to write: and I heard
           a voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the
      5.  seven thunders uttered, and write them not.  And
           the angel that I saw standing upon the sea and upon the
      6.  earth lifted up his right hand to heaven, And sware by
           him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heaven
           and the things that are therein, and the earth and the
           things that are therein, and the sea, and the things
           that are therein, that there shall be time no longer.
      7.  But in the days of the voice of the third angel, when
           he shall sound, then is the mystery of God finished,
           according to the good tydings which he hath declared to his
      8.  servants 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
      9.  the sea and upon the earth.  And I went unto the angel
           and bade him give me the little book.  And he saith
           unto me, Take it, and eat it up, and it shall make thy belly
    10.  bitter, but in thy mouth it shall be sweet as honey.  And
           I took the little book out of the hand of the angel and ate
           it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey, and when I
    11.  had eaten it my belly was made bitter. And they said
           unto me, Thou must prophesy again concerning many
           peoples and nations, and tongues, and kings. 

C H A P T E R   X I .

      1.        And he gave me a reed like unto a rod, saying, Rise
           and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them
      2.  that worship therein.  But the court that is without the
           temple leave out, and measure it not; for it hath been
           given unto the nations: and the holy city they shall
      3.  tread under foot forty and two months.  And I will
           appoint my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a
           thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in
      4.  sackcloth.  These are the two olive trees, and the two
           candlesticks, which stand before the Lord of the earth.
      5.  And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of
      6.  their mouth, and devoureth their enemies.  These
           have 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
      7.  the 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, and
      8.  shall overcome them, and kill them.  And their dead
           bodies (shall lie) in the street of the great city, that
           spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their
      9.  Lord 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.
    10.        And they that dwell in the land rejoice over them, and
           make merry; and they shall send gifts one to another;
           because these two prophets had tormented them that
    11.  dwell in the land.  And after the three days and an half
           the breath of life from God entered into them, and they
           stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon them that
    12.  beheld them.  And they heard a great voice from heaven
           saying unto them, Come up hither.  And they went up
           into heaven in the cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 
    13.  And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and
           the tenth part of the city fell; and there were killed
           in the earthquake seven thousand persons: and the
           rest were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of
    14.        The second Woe is past: behold, the third Woe
           cometh quickly.

     15.  And the third angel sounded; and there followed
                great voices in heaven, saying,

                  The kingdoms of this world are become the
                      kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ;
                   And he shall reign for ever and ever.

     16.  And the four and twenty elders, which sit before God
                on their thrones, fell on their faces, and worshipped
                God, saying,

     17.        We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
                        Which art, and which wast;
                  Because thou hast taken thy great power,
                         And hast become King.

     18.  a.  And the nations have waxed wroth,
            b.  And thy wrath hath come,
            h.  And < the time > to destroy them that destroy the
            c.  And the time for the dead to be judged -
            g.  The small and the great.
            d.  And for giving their reward to thy servants,
            e.  The prophets and to the saints,
             f.  And them that fear thy name.

     19.  And there was opened the temple of God that is in
                heaven; and there was seen in his temple the ark of
                his covenant; and there followed lightnings, and voices,
                and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. 

C H A P T E R   X I I .

      1.        And a great sign was seen in heaven; a woman
           clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
      2.  upon her head a crown of twelve stars.  And she was
           with child, and cried out in her travail and pain to be
      3.  delivered.  And there was seen another sign in heaven;
           and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and
      4.  ten horns, and upon his head seven diadems.  And
           his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and
           did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before
           the woman that was ready to be delivered, that he might
      5.  devour her child when she was delivered.  And she
           was delivered of a son, a man child, who shall break
           all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was
      6.  caught up to God and to his throne.  And the woman
           fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared
           of God, that there they should nourish her a thousand
           two hundred and threescore days.
      7.  And war burst forth in heaven:
           Michael and his angels had to war with the dragon;
           And the dragon warred and his angels; and he prevailed
      8.  Neither was their place found any more in heaven.
      9.  And the great dragon was cast down, that old serpent,
           - He that is called the Devil and Satan,
           That deceiveth the whole world -
           He was cast down to the earth,
           And his angels were cast down with him.

    10.  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 authority of
                     his Christ:
                 For the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
                 Which accuseth them before our God day and night.

     11.  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.

     12.  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them:
                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.

     13.  And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the
            earth, he persecuted the woman that had brought forth
     14.  the 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.
     15.  And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman
            water as a river, that he might cause her to be swept away
     16.  by the flood.  But the earth helped the woman, and the
            earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river which
     17.  the 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
     18.  And he stood upon the sand of the sea. 

C H A P T E R   X I I I .

      1.  And from the sea I saw a beast coming up
           With ten horns and seven heads,
           And on his heads name of blasphemy.

      2.  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard,
           And his feet were as the feet of a bear,
           And his mouth as the mouth of a lion:

           And the dragon gave him his power,
           And his throne, and great authority.
      3.  And (I saw) one of his heads slain as it were unto death;
           And his deadly wound was healed:

           And the whole earth wondered * after the beast * ;
      4.  And they worshipped the dragon
           Because he had given his power to the beast;

           And they worshipped the beast, saying,
                 Who is like unto the beast?
                 And who can war with him?

    5a.  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great
               things and blasphemies;
      6.  And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God,

     5b.  And there was given unto him authority to act with effect
               forty and two months.
      7.  And there was given unto him authority to make war with the
               saints, and to overcome them;
           And there was given unto him authority over every tribe
               and people and language and nation.

      8.  And all that dwelt on the earth worship ped him,
           Whose names are not written in the book of life
           Of the Lamb that hath been slain from the foundation of
               the world.

      9.  If any man have an ear, let him hear.

    10.  If any man is for captivity,
           Into captivity he goeth:
           If any man is to be slain with the sword,
           With the sword must he be slain.

           Here is the patience
           And the faith of the saints.

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

    12.  And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in
               his sight,
           And he maketh the earth and them that dwell in it to
               worship the first beast,
           Whose deadly wound had been healed.

    13.  And he doeth great signs, so that he maketh fire to
           come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of
    14.  men.  And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth
           by reason of the signs that it was given him to do in
           the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the
           earth, that they should set up an image to the beast,
    15.  who had the wound of the sword, and yet lived.  And
           it was given unto him to give breath to the image
           of the beast, that the image of the beast should also
           speak, and to cause that as many as should not worship
    16.  the image of the beast should be killed.  And he causeth
           all, the small and great, and the rich and the poor,
           and the free and the bond, to receive a mark on their
    17.  right hand, or upon their foreheads: and that no man
           should be able to buy or sell, save he that hath the mark,
           the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
    18.  Here is wisdom.  Let him that hath understanding
           count the number of the beast: for it is the number of
           a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty-six. 

XIV. 12.    Here is the patience of the saints, who keep the
           commanments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

    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 their
               labours; and their works go with them.

C H A P T E R   X I V .

      1.  And I saw, and behold the Lamb standing on Mount
           And with him a hundred forty and four thousand,
           Having his name and the name of his Father written on
               their foreheads.

      2.  And I heard a voice from heaven,
           As the voice of many waters,
           And as the voice of a great thunder.

           And the voice which I heard (was) as (the voice) of harpers
      3.  harping with their harps, and singing as it were a new
           Before the throne, and before the four living creatures and
               the elders.

           And no one could learn the song
           Save the hundred and forty and four thousand:
    4c.  These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he

    4d.  These have been redeemed from among men (to be) a
              sacrifice to God,

      5.  And in their mouth hath no falsehood been found;
               for they are blameless.

      6.  And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having an
               an eternal gospel to proclaim unto them that dwell on the
      7.      earth, and unto every nation and tribe and tongue and
               people, saying with a loud voice,
                     Fear God, and give him glory;
                     For the hour of his judgment is come:
                     And worship him that made the heaven
                     And the earth and sea and fountains of waters.

      8.  And another, a second angel, followed, saying,
                 Fallen, fallen is Babylon, the great,
                 Which had made all the nations to drink the wine
                     [of the wrath] of her fornication.

      9.  And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a
               great voice,
                   If any man worshippeth the beast and his image,
                   And receiveth the mark on his forehead, or upon
                       his hand,

     10.         He shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God,
                   Which is mingled sheer in the cup of his anger,
                   And he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone
                   In the presence of the angels and of the Lamb.

     11.         And the smoke of their torment goeth up for ever
                       and ever;
                   And they have no rest day nor night,
                   That worship the beast and his image,
                   And whoso receiveth the mark of his name.

    14.  And I saw, and behold, a white cloud;
           And on the cloud one seated like unto a son of man,
           Having on his head a golden crown,
           And in his hand a sharp sickle.

    18.  And another angel 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.
    19.  And 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.

    20.  And the winepress was trodden without the city,
           And blood came out of the winepress, even unto the
               horse's bridles -
           To 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;
           and them that had been victorious over the beast, and
           over his image, and over the number of his name,
           standing by the sea of glass, having the harps of God,
      3.  and singing the song of the Lamb, saying,

                   Great and marvellous are thy works,
                       Lord God Almighty:
                   Righteous and true are thy ways,
                       Thou King of the nations.

      4.          Who shall not fear thee, O Lord,
                   And glorify thy name?
                   For thou alone art holy;
                   For all the nations shall come
                   And worship before thee;
           For thy righteous acts shall have been made manifest.

      5.  And after these things I saw, and *, behold, the temple of the
      6.  tabernacle of the testimony in heaven * was opened: and
           seven angels came forth from the temple, clothed in fine
           linen, pure, bright, and girt about the breasts with golden
      7.  girdles.  And one of the four living creatures gave unto
           the seven angels seven golden bowels full of the wrath of
           God who liveth for ever and ever.

      8.  And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of
           God, and from his power; and none could enter the temple
           till the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished. 

C H A P T E R   X V I .

      1.        And I heard a great voice from the temple saying
           to the seven angels, Go and pour out the seven bowels of
      2.  the wrath of God upon the earth.  And the first went
           and poured out his bowl upon the earth; and it became
      3.  a noisome and grievous sore upon men.  And the
           second poured out his bowl upon the sea; and it became
           blood as of a dead man: and every living soul died, (even)
      4.  the thing that were in the sea.  And the third poured
           out his bowl upon the rivers and the fountains of waters,
      8.  and they became blood.  And the fourth poured out
           his bowl upon the sun; and it was given unto him to
      9.  scorch 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
    10.  to give him glory.  And the fifth poured his bowel upon
           the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was darkened;
    11.  ... and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And they
           blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains
           and of their sores, and they repented not of their works.
    12.        And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river,
           the Euphrates, and its waters were dried up, that the way
           might be prepared for the kings that (come) from the sun-
    13.  rising.  And I saw from the mouth of the dragon, and
           from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the
    14.  false prophet.  three unclean spirits going forth unto
           the kings of the whole world to gather them together
    16.  unto the war of the great day of God Almighty.  And
           he gathered them together to the place which is called
    17.  in Hebrew Har-Magedon.  And the seventh poured out
           his bowel upon the air; and there came a great
           voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It
    18.  is done.  And there followed lightnings, and voices and
           thunders, and there followed a great earthquake, such as
           there has not been since men were upon the earth, so
    19.  mighty an earthquake, so great.  And the cities of the
           nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered
           before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the
    20.  fierceness of his wrath.  And every island fled away, and
    21.  the mountains were not found.  And great hail, (every
           stone) about the weight of a talent, came down from
           heaven upon men: and men blasphemed God because
           of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was
           exceeding great. 

C H A P T E R   X V I I .

      1.  And there came one of the seven angels which had
           the seven bowels, and he spake with me, saying, Come
           hither; I will show thee

           The judgment of the great harlot
           That sitteth upon many waters:
      2.  With whom the kings of the earth have committed
           And with the wine of whose fornication they that dwell
               upon the earth have become drunken.

      3.  And he carried me away in the spirit into a wilderness:
           and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-coloured beast,
           full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten
      4.  horns.  And the woman was arrayed in purple and
           scarlet, and adourned with gold and precious stones and
           pearls, having in her hand a golden full of abominations
      5.  and filthiness of her fornication.  And upon her forehead
           was a name written, a mystery -
                   Babylon the great,
                   The mother of harlotries
                   And of the abominations of the earth.

      6.  And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the
           saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.  And
      7.  when I saw her I wondered with great wonder.  And
           the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou wonder?
           I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the
           beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and
           the ten horns.
      8.  The beast that thou sawest was, and is not, and is about
           to come up out of the abyss, and he goeth his way into
           perdition.  And they that dwell on the earth will wonder
           - (all) whose names have not been written in the book of
           life since the foundation of the world, when they behold
           the beast that was, and is not, and yet is to come.
      9.  Here (is needed) the mind which hath wisdom.   The
    10.  seven heads are seven kings: five of them have fallen,
           the one is, the other is not yet come, and when he
    11.  cometh, he must continue a short time. And the beast
           that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of
           the seven; and he goeth his way into perdition.
    12.  And the ten horns, which thou sawest, are ten kings, that
           have received no kingdom as yet; but they will receive
           authority as kings for one hour along with the beast.
    13.  These have one purpose, and they give their power and
    17.  authority unto the beast.  For God hath put into their
           hearts to do his purpose, and to give their kingdom unto
    16.  the beast, until the words of God should be fulfilled. And
           the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast,

                   These shall hate the harlot,
                   And make her desolate and naked,
                   And they shall eat her flesh,
                   And burn her with fire.

    14.  These shall war against the Lamb,
           And the Lamb shall overcome them:
           For he is Lord of lords, and King of kings;
           And they that are with him, called and elect and
               faithful, (shall overcome).

    18.  And the woman, whom thou sawest, is the great city,
               which reigneth over the kings of the earth. 

C H A P T E R   X V I I I .

      1.        After these things I saw another angel coming down
           from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was
      2.  lighted up by his glory.  And he cried with a mightily
           voice, saying,

                   Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great,
                   And has become a habitation for demons,
                   And a hold of every unclean and hateful spirit,
                   And a hold of every unclean and hateful bird.

      3.  For of the wine of her fornication hath she caused all
               the nations to drink;
           For the kings of the earth committed fornication with her,
           And the merchants of the earth waxed rich through the
               wealth of her wantoness.

      4.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,

                   Come forth from her, my people,
                   That ye may have no fellowship with her sins,
                   And that ye receive not of her plagues.

      5.          For her sins have reached unto heaven,
                   And God hath remembered her iniquities.

      6.          Render unto her even as she rendered,
                   And double (unto her) double according to her works:
                   In the cup which she hath mingled, mingle unto
                       her double.

      7.          In the measure in which she hath glorified herself
                       and played the wanton,
                   In that measure give her torment and * mourning *.

                           Because she saith in her heart,
                           I sit as a queen,
                           And am no widow,
                           And I shall not see * mourning *.

      8.  Therefore in one day shall her plagues come,
           * pestilence and mourning and famine *
           And she shall be burnt with fire;
           For strong is the God who hath judged her.

      9.  And the kings of the earth who committed fornication
               and lived wantonly with her shall weep andwail over
               her, when they look upon the smoke of her burning,
    10.  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying,

                    Woe, woe to the great city,
                    Babylon the strong city! for,
                    For in one hour is thy judgment come.

     11.  And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn
                over her,
            For no man buyeth their merchandise any more -
     12.  Merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stone and
            And fine linen, and purple, and silk and scarlet,
            And all thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every
                vessel of most precious wood,
            And brass, and iron, and marble, 

     13.  And cinnamon, and spice, and incense,
            And ointment, and frankincense, and wine,
            And oil, and fine flour, and wheat,
            And beasts, and sheep, and souls of men.

     15.  The merchants of these things, who were made rich by
                her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment,
     16.  weeping and mourning, Saying,
                Woe, woe to the great city,
                That was clothed in fine linen and purple and
                And adorned with gold, and precious stone, and
                For in one hour are so great riches laid waste.

     17.  And every ship master, and every one that saileth any
            whither, and mariners, and as many as gain there
     18.  living by the sea, stood afar off,  And cried as they looked
            upon the smoke of her burning, saying, What (city) is like
     19.  the great city!  And they cast dust on their heads, and
            they cried, weeping and mourning, saying,

                    Woe, woe to the great city,
                    Wherein were made rich all that had their ships at
                    For in one hour are her precious things laid waste.

     21.  And a strong angel took up a stone, as it were a great
                millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying,

                    Thus with violence shall be cast down
                    Babylon, the great city,
                    And shall no more be found.

     14.          And the fruits which thy soul lusted after
                        Are gone from thee:
                     And all the dainties and the splendours
                         Are perished from thee.

22a-d.          And the voice of the harpers and singers
                          < Shall be heard no more in thee>;
                    And <the voice> of the flute players and
                          Shall be heard no more in thee.

23c.d.          And the voice of the bridegroom and the bride
                          Shall be heard no more in thee;
22e.f.           And no craftsmen of whatever craft
                          Shall be found any more in thee.
22g.h.          And the voice of the millstone
                          Shall be heard no more in thee:
23a.b.          And the light of the lamp
                          Shall shine no more in thee.

    20.        Rejoice over her, thou heaven,
           And ye saints, and ye apostles, and ye prophets;
           For God hath given judgment in your cause against her.
   23f.  For with her sorcery were all the nations deceived.
    24.  And in her was found the blood of the prophets and
           And of all that had been slain upon the earth.  
C H A P T E R   X I X .

      1.  After these things I heard as it were a great voice of a
               a mighty multitude in heaven, saying,

                   Salvation, and glory, and power, belong to our God:
      2.          For true and righteous are his judgments;

                   For he hath judged the great harlot,
                   That corrupted the earth with her fornication,
                   And he hath avenged the blood of his servants at
                       her hand.

      3.  And again they said:

                   For her smoke goeth up for ever and ever.

      4.  And the four and twenty elders and the four living
               creatures fell down and worshipped God that sitteth on
               the throne, saying,

                                      Amen; Hallelujah;
XVI.5b.c.  Righteous art thou, which art and which wast.
                   Holy, in that thou hast thus judged:
      6.          Because they poured out the blood of saints and
                   Thou hast given them blood also to drink:
                   They are worthy.
      7.           And I heard the altar saying,
                    Yea, O Lord God Almighty,
                    True and righteous are thy judgments.

XIX.5.        And a voice came forth from the throne, saying,
                    Praise our God, all ye his servants,
                    And ye who fear him, small and great.

      6.  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and
               as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty
               thunders, saying,
                    For the Lord God Almighty hath become King.
      7.           Let us be glad and rejoice,
                    And give unto him the glory:
                    For the marriage of the Lamb hath come,
                    And his bride hath made herself ready.

      8.  Yea, it hath been given unto her to clothe herself
           In fine linen, bright, pure.

      9.  And he saith unto me, Blessed are they which are called
               to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
        .            .            .            .            .            .            .            .
        .            .            .            .            .            .            .            .       

     11.  And I saw the heaven opened;
            And behold a white horse,

            And he that sat thereon -  Faithful and True;
            And in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

     12.  And his eyes are as a flame of fire,
            And on his head are many diadems; 

     13.  And he is clothed with a garment dipped in blood:
            And his name is called The Word of God.

     14.  And the armies which are in heaven follow him on
                white horses,
            Being clothed in fine linen, white, pure.

     15.  And from his mouth proceedeth a sharp sword,
            That with it he should smite the nations:
            And he shall break them with a rod of iron:
            And he treadeth the winepress of the fierce wrath of
                God Almighty.

     16.  And he hath on his thigh a name written,

     17.        And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried
            with a great voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the
            mid heaven, Come, gather yourselves together to the
     18.  great supper of God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings,
            and the flesh of horses and of them that sit thereon, and
            the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small
            and great.
     19.        And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and
            their armies, gathered together to make war against him
     20.  that sat upon the horse, and against his army.  And the
            beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
            wrought the signs before him, wherewith he deceived
            them that had received the mark of the beast, and them
            that worshipped his image: They twain were cast alive
     21.  into a lake of fire that burneth with brimstone.  And
            the rest were slain with with the sword of him that sat upon
            the horse, (even the sword) which came forth out of his
            mouth: and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

      1.  And I saw an angel come down from heaven,
           Having the key of the abyss
           And a great chain in his hand.

      2.  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
           Which is the Devil and Satan,
           And bound him for a thousand years,

      3.  And cast him into the abyss
           And shut and sealed (it) over him,
           That he should no more deceive the nations
           Till the thousand years should be fulfilled:

           After that he must be loosed for a little time.

      9.       And there came one of the seven angels who had
           the seven bowels, which were full of the seven last
           plagues; and he spake with me, saying, Come hither,
           I will shew thee the bride[, wife] of the Lamb.
    10.  And he carried me away in the spirit to a mountain
           great and high, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem,
    11.  coming down out of heaven from God, Having the
           glory of God: her light was like unto a stone most
           precious, as it were a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
    12.  She had a wall great and high; and had twelve gates,
           and at the gates twelve angels; and names written
           thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of
    13.  the children of Israel: On the east were three gates;
           and on the north three gates; on the south three
    14.  gates; and on the west three gates.  And the wall of
           the city had twelve foundations, and on them the
    15.  twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.  And
           he that spake with me had for a measure a golden reed
           to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the
    16.  wall thereof.  And the city lieth foursquare, and the
           length is as great also as the breadth; and he
           measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand
           furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height
    17.  thereof are equal. And he measured the wall thereof,
           a hundred and forty and four cubits, according to
           the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
    18.        And the building of the wall of it was of jasper:
           And the city was pure gold, like unto pure glass.
    19.  And the foundations of the wall of the city were
           adorned with all manner of precious stones.

           The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire;
               the third, chalcedony;
    20.  The fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth,
           The seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth,
           The tenth, a chrysoprase; the eleventh, a jacinth; the
               twelfth, amethyst.

    21.  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls;
           Each one of the gates was of one pearl:
           And the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as

    22.  And I saw no temple therein:
           For the Lord God Almighty is the temple thereof,
           And the Lamb < is the ark of the covenant thereof > .

    23.  And the city hath no need of the sun, nor yet of the
               moon, to shine upon it:
           For the glory of the Lord doth lighten it,
           And the lamp therof is the Lamb.

    24.  And the nations shall walk by the light thereof:
           And the kings of the earth do bring their glory into it.
    25.  And the gates thereof shall not be shut day or night.

    26.  And they shall bring the glory and honour of the
               nations into it:
    27.  And there shall not enter into it * anything unclean or
               one  * that maketh an abomination or a lie:
           But only they that are written in the Lamb's book of

C H A P T E R   X X I I :

      1.  And he showed me a river of water of life, bright
               as crystal,
      2.  Proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, In
               the midst of the street thereof:
           And on this side of the river and on that was the tree
               of life,

           Bearing twelve (manner of) fruits,
           Yielding its fruit every month:
           And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the

    14.  Blessed are they that wash their robes,
           That they may have the right to the tree of life,
           And may enter in by the gates into the city.

    15.  Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers,
           And the fornicators, and the murderers, and the
           And every one that loveth and maketh a lie.

    17.  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.
           And let him that heareth say, Come.
           And let him that is athirst come.
           Whosoever willeth let him take the water of life freely.

4c-h.  And < I saw > the souls of them that had been
              beheaded for the witness of Christ,
          And for the word of God,

          And had not worshipped the beast,
          Nor yet his image,

          And had not received the mark upon their forehead
          And upon their hand;

       4a.b.i.  And I saw thrones, and they seated themselves thereon,
                    And judgment was given unto them.
          And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand
    5b.  This is the first resurrection.
      6.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first
           over these the second death hath no power;

           But they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
           And shall reign with him a thousand years.

           come forth to deceive the nations which are in the
           four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather
           them together to the war: the number of whom is as
      9.  the sand of the sea.  And they went up over the
           breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the
           saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down
    10.  out of heaven, and devoured them.  And the devil
           that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and
           brimstone, where are also the beast and the false
           prophet are, and they shall be tormented day and night
           for ever and ever.

    11.  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat
           And from his face the earth and the heaven fled away,
           And no place was found for them.

    12.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing
               before the throne,
           And books were opened: and another book was opened,
               which is (the book) of life:
           And the dead were judged out of the things written in
               the books.
    13.  And the treasuries gave up the dead which were in
           And death and hades gave up the dead which were in
           And they were judged every man according to their

    14.  And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.
    15.  And all that were not found written in the book of life
           Were cast into the lake of fire.

     5a.  And they that sat upon the throne said,

     4d.              The former things have passed away;
     5b.              Behold, I make all things new.

      1.  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth;
           For the first heaven and the first earth had passed
           Nor is there any more sea.

      2.  And the holy city, New Jerusalem, I saw,
           Coming down out of heaven from God,
           Made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

      3.  And I heard a great voice from the throne saying,
                     Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,
                     And he shall dwell with them,
                     And they shall be his people,
                     And he shall be their God.

     4a.           And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
       b.           And death shall be no more:
       c.           Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor
                         pain any more,
XXII.3.        Neither shall there be any more curse.

                     And the throne of God and of the Lamb shall
                         be in it;
                     And his servants shall serve him:
      4.            And they shall see his face,
                     And his name shall be on their foreheads.

      5.            And there shall be no more night,
                     And they have no need of light of lamp or light
                         of sun,
                     For the Lord God shall cause (his face) to shine
                         upon them:
                     And they shall reign for ever and ever.      

XXI.5c.  And He saith, Write; for these words are faithful
and true.

     6b.  I am the Alpha and Omega,
            The beginning and the end:
            I will give unto him that thirsteth of the fountain of the
                water of life freely.

      7.  He that overcometh shall inherit all things,
           And I will be his God,
           And he shall be my son.

      8.  But for the cravenhearted and unbelieving,
           And abominable and murderers,
           And fornicators and sorcerers,
           And idolaters and all liars -
           Their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire
               and brimstone:
           Which is the second death.

      6.        And he said unto me, These words are faithful and
           true: and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the
           prophets, sent his angel to show unto his servants the
      7.  things which must shortly come to pass.  And behold,
           I come quickly.  Blessed is he that keepeth the words
           of the prophecy of this book.
  18a.  To every one that heareth I testify the words of the
           prophecy of this book.

    16.  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify these things unto
               you in the summoned-out communities:

    13.  I am the Alpha and the Omega,
           The first and the last,
           The beginning and the end.

    12.  Behold, I come quickly;
           And my reward iswith me,
           To render to each man accoring as his work is.

    10.  And he saith unto me, Seal not up the words of the
               prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand.

      8.  And I John am he that heard and saw these things.
               And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship
               before the feet of the angel which showed me these
               things.  9.  And he saith unto me, See thou do it not:
               for I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren
               the prophets and of them which keep the words of
               this book: worship God.

    20.  He which testifieth these things saith,
           Yea: I come quickly.
           Amen: come, Lord Jesus.  

    21.  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints.
