Book of Revelation
(Green's Modern King James Version)
1A Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to Him to declare to His servants things which must shortly come to pass. And He signified it by sending His angel to His servant John, 2who bore record of the Word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ and of all the things that he saw.
3Blessed is the one who reads and hears the words of this prophecy, and the ones keeping the things written in it, for the time is near. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia. Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is coming; and from the seven spirits which are before His throne; 5even from Jesus Christ the faithful Witness, the First-born from the dead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6and made us kings and priests to God and His Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, He comes with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, and those who pierced Him will see Him, and all the kindreds of the earth will wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. 8I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
9I, John, who also am your brother and companion in the affliction, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the island that is called Patmos, for the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I came to be in the Spirit in the Lord's day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11saying, I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. Also, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. 13And having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands. And in the midst of the seven lampstands I saw One like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet, and tied around the breast with a golden band. 14His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15And His feet were like burnished brass having been fired in a furnace. And His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16And He had seven stars in His right hand, and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. And His face was like the sun shining in its strength. 17And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying to me, Do not fear, I am the First and the Last, 18and the Living One, and I became dead, and behold, I am alive for ever and ever, Amen. And I have the keys of hell and of death. 19Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be after this, 20the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.
1To the angel of the Church of Ephesus write: He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says these things. 2I know your works and your labor and your patience, and how you cannot bear those who are evil. And you tried those pretending to be apostles, and are not, and have found them liars. 3And you have borne, and have patience, and for My name's sake you have labored and have not fainted. 4But I have against you that you left your first love. 5Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent. 6But you have this, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give him to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
8And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: The First and the Last, who became dead and lived, says these things: 9I know your works and tribulation and poverty (but you are rich), and I know the blasphemy of those saying themselves to be Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10Do not at all fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the Devil will cast some of you into prison, so that you may be tried. And you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.
12And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: He who has the sharp sword with two edges says these things. 13I know your works, and where you live, even where Satan's seat is . And you hold fast My name and have not denied My faith, even in those days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells. 14But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the teachings of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication. 15So you also have those who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16Repent! But if not I will come to you quickly, and will fight with them by the sword of My mouth. 17He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give to him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows except he who receives it .
18And to the angel of the church at Thyatira write: The Son of God, He who has His eyes like a flame of fire and His feet like burnished metal, says these things: 19I know your works and love and service and faith and your patience, and your works; and the last to be more than the first. 20But I have a few things against you because you allow that woman Jezebel to teach, she saying herself to be a prophetess, and to cause My servants to go astray, and to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices. 21And I gave her time that she might repent of her fornication, and she did not repent. 22Behold, I am throwing her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their deeds. 23And I will kill her children with death. And all the churches will know that I am He who searches the reins and hearts, and I will give to every one of you according to your works. 24But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak, I will put on you no other burden. 25But that which you have, hold fast until I come. 26And he who overcomes and keeps My works to the end, to him I will give power over the nations. 27And he will rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of a potter they will be broken to pieces, even as I received from My Father. 28And I will give him the Morning Star. 29He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
1And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars says these things. I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead. 2Be watchful and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die. For I have not found your works being fulfilled before God. 3Remember then how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. 4You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5The one who overcomes, that one will be clothed in white clothing. And I will not blot out his name out of the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts; and shuts and no one opens, says these things: 8I know your works. Behold, I have given before you an open door, and no one can shut it. For you have a little strength and have kept My word and have not denied My name. 9Behold, I will give out of those of the synagogue of Satan, those saying themselves to be Jews and are not, but lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which will come upon all the world, to try those who dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly. Hold fast to that which you have, so that no one may take your crown. 12Him who overcomes I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will go out no more. And I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God, and My new name. 13He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
14And to the angel of the church of the Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Head of the creation of God, says these things: 15I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. 16So because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17Because you say, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing, and do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18I counsel you to buy from Me gold tried in the fire, so that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be clothed, and so that the shame of your nakedness does not appear. And anoint your eyes with eye salve, so that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; therefore be zealous and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him and he with Me. 21To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame and have sat down with My Father in His throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
1After these things I looked, and behold, a door was opened in Heaven. And the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me, saying, Come up here, and I will show you what must occur after these things. 2And immediately I became in spirit. And behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and One sat upon the throne. 3And He who sat there looked like a jasper stone and a sardius. And a rainbow was around the throne, looking like an emerald. 4And around the throne I saw twenty-four thrones. And on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white clothing. And they had crowns of gold on their heads. 5And out of the throne came lightnings and thunderings and voices. And seven lamps of fire were burning in front of the throne, which are the seven spirits of God. 6And a sea of glass was in front of the throne, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind. 7And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a calf, and the third living creature had the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle.
8And each one of the four living creatures had six wings about him , and within being full of eyes. And they had no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God, the Almighty, who was and is and is to come. 9And whenever the living creatures gave glory and honor and thanks to Him who sat on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10the twenty-four elders fell down before the One sitting on the throne. And they worshiped Him who lives for ever and ever, and threw their crowns before the throne, saying, 11O Lord, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power, because You created all things, and for Your will they are and were created.
1And I saw a book on the right of Him sitting on the throne, written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loosen its seals? 3And no one in Heaven, nor on the earth, nor under the earth, was able to open the book or to look at it. 4And I wept very much, because no one was found worthy to open and to read the book, nor to look at it. 5And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book and to loose the seven seals of it.
6And I looked, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, amidst the elders, a Lamb stood, as if it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne. 8And when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having harps and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals, for You were slain and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation. 10And You made us kings and priests to our God, and we will reign over the earth. 11And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and the living creatures and the elders. And the number of them was myriads and myriads, and thousands of thousands, 12saying with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing. 13And I heard every creature which is in the Heaven and on the earth, and under the earth, and those that are in the sea, and all who are in them, saying, Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb forever and ever. 14And the four living creatures said, Amen. And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped the One living forever and ever.
1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures like a sound of thunder, saying, Come and see. 2And I saw. And behold a white horse! And he sitting on it had a bow. And a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer.
3And when He had opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, Come and see. 4And another, a red horse, went out. And power was given to him sitting on it, to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. And there was given to him a great sword. 5And when He had opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. And I looked, and lo, a black horse. And he sitting on it had a balance in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures say, A choenix of wheat for a denarius, and three choenixes of barley for a denarius. And do not hurt the oil and the wine. 7And when He had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him sitting on it was Death, and Hell followed with him. And authority was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with the sword and with hunger and with death and by the beasts of the earth.
9And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Until when, Master, holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given to each one of them. And it was said to them that they should rest yet for a little time, until both their fellow servants and their brothers (those about to be killed as they were ) should have their number made complete. 12And when He had opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs when she is shaken by a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed like a scroll when it is rolled together. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains. 16And they said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17for the great day of His wrath has come, and who will be able to stand?
1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth so that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3saying, Do not hurt the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousands, having been sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel. 5Out of the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed. Out of the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand were sealed. Out of the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand had been sealed. 6Out of the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Manasseh, twelve thousand had been sealed. 7Out of the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand had been sealed. 8Out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand had been sealed. Out of the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand had been sealed. 9After these things I looked, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of all nations and kindreds and people and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palms in their hands. 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood around the throne, and the elders, and the four living creatures, and they fell before the throne on their faces and worshiped God, 12saying, Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
13And one of the elders answered, saying to me, Who are these who are arrayed in white robes, and from where do they come? 14And I said to him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are the ones who came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes, and have whitened them in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His temple. And He sitting on the throne will dwell among them. 16They will not hunger any more, nor thirst any more, nor will the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will feed them and will lead them to the fountains of living waters. And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.
1And when He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour. 2And I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. 3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer. And many incenses were given to him, so that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar before the throne. 4And the smoke of the incense which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God from the angel's hand. 5And the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it into the earth. And voices and thunderings and lightnings and an earthquake occurred. 6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, and they were cast on the earth. And the third part of trees was burned up, and all green grass was burned up. 8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea. And the third part of the sea became blood. 9And the third part of the creatures in the sea, those having souls, died; and the third part of the ships was destroyed. 10And the third angel sounded, and a great star burning like a lamp fell from the heaven, and it fell on the third part of the rivers and on the fountains of waters. 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood, and a third part of the waters became wormwood. And many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was stricken, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars, so that the third part of them was darkened, and the day did not appear for a third part of it, and the night also. 13And I saw and I heard one angel flying in mid-heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, from the rest of the voices of the trumpet of the three angels being about to sound!
1And the fifth angel sounded. And I saw a star fall from the heaven to the earth, and it was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2And it opened the bottomless pit. And there arose a smoke out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun and air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3And out of the smoke came forth locusts onto the earth. And authority was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have authority. 4And they were commanded not to hurt the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads. 5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months. And their torment was like a scorpion's torment when he stings a man. 6And in those days men will seek death and will not find it. And they will long to die, and death will flee from them. 7And the shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for battle. And on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8And they had hairs like the hairs of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron. And the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10And they had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. And their authority was to hurt men five months. 11And they had a king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in Greek his name is Apollyon. 12The first woe is past. Behold, after these things yet come two woes.
13And the sixth angel sounded his trumpet. And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Loose the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates. 15And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, in order to slay the third part of men. 16And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two myriads of myriads. And I heard their number. 17And so I saw the horses in the vision, and those sitting on them, having breastplates of fire, even dusky red and brimstone. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions. And out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three the third part of men was killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone which issued out of their mouths. 19For their authority is in their mouth and in their tails. For their tails were like serpents with heads, and with them they do harm. 20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and golden, and silver, and bronze, and stone, and wooden idols (which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk). 21And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
1And I saw another mighty angel coming down out of the heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. 2And he had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the earth. 3And he cried with a loud voice, like a lion roaring. And when he had cried, seven thunders spoke their sounds. 4And when the seven thunders spoke their sounds, I was about to write. And I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me, Seal up what things the seven thunders spoke, and do not write these things. 5And the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the earth lifted his hand to the heaven, 6and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created the heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that there should no longer be time. 7But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he will begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets.
8And the voice which I heard from Heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth. 9And I went to the angel and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me, Take it and eat it up, and it will make your belly bitter, but it will be sweet as honey in your mouth. 10And I took the little book out of the angel's hand and ate it up. And it was sweet as honey in my mouth, and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was made bitter. 11And he said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.
1And a reed like a rod was given to me. And the angel stood, saying, Rise up and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and those who worship in it. 2But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it was given to the nations. And they will trample the holy city forty-two months.
3And I will give power to My two witnesses, and they will prophesy a thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. 5And if anyone will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone will hurt them, so it is right for him to be killed. 6These have authority to shut up the heaven, that it may not rain in the days of their prophecy. And they have authority over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire. 7And when they complete their testimony, the beast coming up out of the abyss will make war against them and will overcome them and kill them. 8And their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And many of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will see their dead bodies three days and a half, and they will not allow their dead bodies to be put in tombs. 10And the ones who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, and will make merry, and will send one another gifts, because these two prophets tormented those living on the earth. 11And after three days and a half, a spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet. And great fear fell on those seeing them. 12And they heard a great voice from Heaven saying to them, Come up here. And they went up to Heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them. 13And in that hour a great earthquake occurred, and the tenth part of the city fell. And seven thousand names of men were slain in the earthquake. And the rest were frightened and gave glory to the God of Heaven.
14The second woe passed away. Behold, the third woe comes quickly. 15And the seventh angel sounded. And there were great voices in Heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. And He will reign forever and ever. 16And the twenty-four elders sitting before God on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17saying, We thank You, O Lord God Almighty, who are, and who was, and who is coming, because You took Your great power and reigned. 18And the nations were full of wrath, and Your wrath came, and the time of the judging of the dead, and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to the ones fearing Your name, to the small and to the great, and to destroy those destroying the earth. 19And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His covenant, and occurred lightnings and voices, and thunders and an earthquake, and a great hail.
1And there appeared a great sign in the heavens, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head, 2and having a babe in womb, she cries, being in travail, having been distressed to bear. 3And another sign was seen in the heavens. And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads! 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them onto the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman being about to bear, so that when she bears he might devour her child. 5And she bore a son, a male, who is going to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and to His throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, so that they might nourish her there a thousand, two hundred and sixty days. 7And there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels warring against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels warred, 8but did not prevail. Nor was place found for them in Heaven any more. 9And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent called Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. 11And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul to the death.
12Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and those tabernacling in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and in the sea! For the Devil came down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a little time. 13And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who bore the man child . 14And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, so that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the serpent's face. 15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water like a flood after the woman, so that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. 16And the earth helped the woman. And the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was enraged over the woman, and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
1And I stood on the sand of the sea, and I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns. And on its horns were ten crowns, and on its heads was the name of blasphemy. 2And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and its feet like those of a bear, and its mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him its power and its seat and great authority. 3And I saw one of its heads as having been slain to death, and its deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marveled after the beast. 4And they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with it? 5And a mouth speaking great things was given to it, and blasphemies. And authority was given to it to continue forty-two months. 6And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, and those dwelling in Heaven. 7And it was given to it to war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given to it over every tribe and tongues and nation. 8And all dwelling on the earth will worship it, those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain, from the foundation of the world. 9If any man has an ear, let him hear. 10He who leads into captivity will go into captivity. If anyone will kill with the sword, he must be killed by a sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. And it had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon. 12And it exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and those dwelling in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And it does great wonders, so that it makes fire come down from the heaven onto the earth in the sight of men. 14And it deceives those dwelling on the earth, because of the miracles which were given to it to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth that they should make an image to the beast who had the wound by a sword and lived. 15And there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might both speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads, 17even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him having reason count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. And its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
1And I looked, and lo, the Lamb stood on Mount Zion. And with Him were a hundred and forty-four. thousands, having His Father's name written in their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice from Heaven, like the voice of many waters and like the voice of a great thunder. And I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps. 3And they sang as it were a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousands who were redeemed from the earth. 4These are those who were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb. 5And in their mouth was found no guile, for they were without blemish before the throne of God.
6And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and kindred and tongue and people, 7saying with a great voice, Fear God and give glory to Him! For the hour of His judgment has come. And worship Him who made the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 8And another angel followed, saying, The great city, Babylon, has fallen, has fallen; because of the wine of the anger of her fornication; she has made all nations to drink. 9And a third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark in his forehead or in his hand, 10he also will drink of the wine of the anger of God, having been mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented by fire and brimstone before the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. 11And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day or night, those who worship the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name. 12Here is the patience of the saints. Here are the ones who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13And I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they shall rest from their labors, and their works follow them. 14And I looked, and behold, a white cloud. And on the cloud sat one like the Son of man, having a golden crown on His head, and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying in a great voice to Him sitting on the cloud, Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth was dried. 16And He sitting on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17And another angel came out of the temple in Heaven, also having a sharp sickle. 18And another angel came out from the altar, who had authority over fire. And he spoke with a great cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe. 19And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the anger of God. 20And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, for the space of a thousand, six hundred stadia.
1And I saw another sign in Heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels with the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire. And those who had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty, just and true are Your ways, O King of saints. 4Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You only are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, for Your righteousnesses were made known.
5And after these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in Heaven. 6And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and were tied at the breasts with golden bands. 7And one of the four beasts gave to the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. 8And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His authority. And no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
1And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out the vials of the anger of God on the earth. 2And the first went and poured out his vial on the earth. And a bad and grievous sore fell on the men who had the mark of the beast, and on those who worshiped his image. 3And the second angel poured out his vial on the sea. And it became like the blood of a dead one, and every living soul died in the sea. 4And the third angel poured out his vial on the rivers and fountains of waters, and they became blood. 5And I heard the angel of the waters say, Righteous is the Lord, who is, and was, and who will be, because You have judged these things, 6since they have poured out the blood of the saints and prophets; and You gave them blood to drink, for they were deserving. 7And I heard another out of the altar saying, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.
8And the fourth angel poured out his vial onto the sun. And it was given to him to burn men with fire. 9And men were burned with great heat. And they blasphemed the name of God, He having authority over these plagues. And they did not repent in order to give Him glory. 10And the fifth angel poured out his vial on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom became darkened. And they gnawed their tongues from the pain. 11And they blasphemed the God of Heaven because of their pains and their sores. And they did not repent of their deeds.
12And the sixth angel poured out his vial on the great river Euphrates. And its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the rising of the sun might be prepared. 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that day, the great day of God Almighty. 15Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is the one who watches and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame. 16And he gathered them into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air. And a great voice came out of the temple of Heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done! 18And voices and thunders and lightnings occurred. And there was a great earthquake, such as has not been since men were on the earth, so mighty and so great an earthquake. 19And the great city came to be into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the anger of His wrath. 20And every island fled away, and mountains were not found. 21And a great hail, as the size of a talent, came down out of the heaven on men. And men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague of it was exceedingly great.
1And one of the seven angels who had the seven vials came and talked with me, saying to me, Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot sitting on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and became drunk with the wine of her fornication, those inhabiting the earth. 3And he carried me away into a desert by the Spirit. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored beast, filled with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet. And she was gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. 5And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with a great marveling.
7And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, that has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to ascend out of the abyss and go into perdition. And those dwelling on the earth will marvel, those whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. 10And there are seven kings; five have fallen, and one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. 12And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, who have received no kingdom yet, but will receive authority as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
14These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them. For He is Lord of lords and King of kings. And those with Him are the called and elect and faithful ones. 15And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues, 16and the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked. And they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17For God gave into their hearts to do His mind, and to act with one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God will be fulfilled. 18And the woman whom you saw is the great city which has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.
1And after these things I saw another angel come down from Heaven, having great authority. And the earth was lighted up from his glory. 2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great has fallen, has fallen! And it has become the dwelling-place of demons, and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a cage of every unclean bird which has been hated, 3because of the wine of the anger of her fornication which all the nations have drunk. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. And the merchants of the earth became rich from the power of her luxury. 4And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues. 5For her sins joined together, even up to Heaven, and God has remembered her unjust deeds. 6Reward her as she has rewarded you, and double to her double, according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix double to her. 7As much as she has glorified herself and has lived in luxury, so much torment and sorrow give her. For she says in her heart, I sit as a queen, and I am not a widow; and I do not see mourning at all. 8Therefore her plagues will come in one day, death and mourning and famine. And she will be consumed with fire, for the Lord God who judges her is strong.
9And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived in luxury with her will weep for her, and will wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning; 10standing afar off for fear of her torment, saying, Woe! Woe to the great city, Babylon, that strong city! For in one hour your judgment came. 11And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their cargo any more; 12the cargo of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and every ivory vessel, and every vessel of very precious wood, and of bronze, and of iron, and of marble, 13and cinnamon, and incenses, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14And the fruits of the lust of your soul have departed from you, and all the fat things and the bright things departed from you, and you will find them no more, not at all. 15The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, will stand afar off because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning 16and saying, Woe! Woe to the great city which was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches was desolated. And every ship-pilot, and all the company on the ships, and sailors, and as many as work the sea, stood afar off. 18 And they cried out, seeing the smoke of her burning, saying, What is like the great city? 19 And they threw dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe! Woe to the great city, by which all who had ships in the sea were rich out of her costliness! For in one hour she was ruined. 20Rejoice over her, Heaven, and the holy apostles, and the prophets, since God judged your judgment on her. 21And one strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, So on an impulse the great city, Babylon, will be thrown down and not at all will be found any more. 22 And the voice of harpers, and of musicians. and flutists, and of trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. And every craftsman of any craft will not be found any more in you. And the sound of a mill will never more be heard at all in you. 23 And the light of a lamp will never more shine at all in you. And the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will never more be heard at all in you. For your merchants were the great ones of the earth; for by your sorceries all nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all those who were slain on the earth.
1And after these things I heard a great sound of a numerous crowd in Heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and honor and the power of the Lord our God! 2For true and righteous are His judgments. For He has judged the great harlot who defiled the earth with her fornication, and He has avenged the blood of His servants out of her hand. 3And secondly they said, Hallelujah! And her smoke rose up forever and ever. 4And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God sitting on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah!
5And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all His servants, and the ones fearing Him, the small and great. 6And I heard as the sound of a great multitude, and as the sound of many waters, and as the sound of strong thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord God omnipotent reigns! 7Let us be glad and rejoice and we will give glory to Him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared herself. 8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white. For the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. 9And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of God. 10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, Stop! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12And His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns. And He had a name written, one that no one knew except Himself. 13And He had been clothed in a garment dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, so that with it He should strike the nations. And He will shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger and of the wrath of Almighty God. 16And He has on His garment, and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17And I saw one angel standing in the sun. And he cried with a great voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, Come and gather together to the supper of the great God, 18so that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of commanders, and the flesh of strong ones, and the flesh of horses, and those sitting on them, and the flesh of all, both free and slave, both small and great. 19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth and their armies, being gathered to make war against Him who sat on the horse, and against His army. 20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet doing signs before it, (by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast), and those who had worshiped his image. The two were thrown alive into the Lake of Fire burning with brimstone. 21And the rest were slain by the sword of Him who sat on the horse, it proceeding out of His mouth. And all the birds were filled from their flesh.
1And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. 3And he cast him into the abyss and shut him up and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the nations no more until the thousand years should be fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed a little time. 4And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, nor in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years. 7And when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison. 8And he will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle. The number of them is as the sand of the sea. 9And they went up over the breadth of the earth and circled around the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. 10And the Devil who deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were . And he will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11And I saw a great white throne, and Him sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And a place was not found for them. 12And I saw the dead, the small and the great, stand before God. And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and hell delivered up the dead in them. And each one of them was judged according to their works. 14And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. 15And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.
1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And the sea no longer is. 2And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband. 3And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there will be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying out, nor will there be any more pain; for the first things passed away. 5And He sitting on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write, for these words are true and faithful. 6And He said to me, It is done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who thirsts I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7He who overcomes will inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son. 8But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, will have their part in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
9And one of the seven angels who had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God, 11having the glory of God. And its light was like a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12And it had a great and high wall, with twelve gates. And at the gates ware twelve angels, and names inscribed, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel: 13From the east three gates, from the north three gates, from the south three gates, and from the west three gates. 14And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15And he who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city and its gates and its wall. 16And the city lies four-square, and the length is as large as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand stadia. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17And he measured its wall, a hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. 18And the foundation of its wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19And the foundations of the wall of the city had been adorned with every precious stone. The first foundation, jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; 20the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, hyacinch; the twelfth, amethyst. 21And the twelve gates were twelve pearls. Respectively, each one of the gates was one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass. 22And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, even the Lamb. 23And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24And the nations of those who are saved will walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25And its gates may not be shut at all by day, for there shall be no night there. 26And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. 27And there shall in no way enter into it anything that defiles, or any making an abomination or a lie; but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
1And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the midst of its street, and of the river, from here and from there, was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve fruits, each yielding its fruit according to one month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3And every curse will no longer be; but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will serve Him. 4And they will see His face, and His name will be in their foreheads. 5And there will be no night there. And they need no lamp, or light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light. And they will reign forever and ever.
6And he said to me, These sayings are faithful and true. And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show to His servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this Book. 8And I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel showing me these things. 9Then he said to me, Behold! Stop! For I am your fellow-servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of those who keep the sayings of this Book. Do worship to God. 10And he said to me, Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this Book; for the time is at hand. 11He acting unjustly, let him still act unjustly. And the filthy, let him be filthy still. And the righteous, let him be righteous still. And the holy, let him be holy still. 12And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each according as his work is. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. 14Blessed are they who do His commandments, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and they may enter in by the gates into the city. 15But outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and makes a lie. 16I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify these things to you over the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright and Morning Star. 17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let the one hearing say, Come! And let him who is thirsty come. And he willing, let him take of the water of life freely. 18For I testify together to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this Book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add on him the plagues that have been written in this Book. 19And if anyone takes away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which have been written in this Book.
20He who testifies these things says, Yes, I am coming quickly, Amen. Yes, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you. Amen.
