of St John the Divine
1:1: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave
unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly
come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his
1:2: Who bare record of the word of God, and of
the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1:3: Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear
the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written
therein: for the time is at hand.
1:4: John to the seven churches which 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
1:5: And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful
witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of
the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us
from our sins in his own blood,
1:6: And hath made us kings and priests unto God
and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.
1:7: Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye
shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds
of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
1:8: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the
ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is
to come, the Almighty.
1:9: I John, who also am your brother, and companion
in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ,
was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and
for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
1:10: I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and
heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
1:11: Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and
the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto
the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna,
and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
1:12: And I turned to see the voice that spake with
me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
1:13: And in the midst of the seven candlesticks
one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the
foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
1:14: His head and his hairs were white like wool,
as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
1:15: And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they
burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
1:16: And he had in his right hand seven stars:
and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance
was as the sun shineth in his strength.
1:17: And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as
dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear
not; I am the first and the last:
1:18: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold,
I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of
1:19: Write the things which thou hast seen, and
the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
1:20: 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 churches: and the seven
candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
2:1: Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write;
These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right
hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2:2: I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience,
and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast
tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast
found them liars:
2:3: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for
my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
2:4: Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee,
because thou hast left thy first love.
2:5: Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen,
and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee
quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except
2:6: But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds
of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
2:7: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I
give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the
paradise of God.
2:8: And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna
write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead,
and is alive;
2:9: I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty,
(but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say
they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
2:10: Fear none of those things which thou shalt
suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison,
that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days:
be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
2:11: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be
hurt of the second death.
2:12: And to the angel of the church in Pergamos
write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two
2:13: I know thy works, and where thou dwellest,
even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and
hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was
my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
2:14: But I have a few things against thee, because
thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught
Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel,
to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
2:15: So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine
of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
2:16: Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly,
and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
2:17: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I
give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone,
and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving
he that receiveth it.
2:18: And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira
write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like
unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
2:19: I know thy works, and charity, and service,
and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be
more than the first.
2:20: Notwithstanding I have a few things against
thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth
herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit
fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
2:21: And I gave her space to repent of her fornication;
and she repented not.
2:22: Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them
that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they
repent of their deeds.
2:23: And I will kill her children with death; and
all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins
and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to
2:24: But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira,
as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the
depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other
2:25: But that which ye have already hold fast till
2:26: And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works
unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
2:27: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron;
as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even
as I received of my Father.
2:28: And I will give him the morning star.
2:29: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:1: And unto the angel of the church in Sardis
write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God,
and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that
thou livest, and art dead.
3:2: Be watchful, and strengthen the things which
remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works
perfect before God.
3:3: Remember therefore how thou hast received and
heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not
watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know
what hour I will come upon thee.
3:4: Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which
have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in
white: for they are worthy.
3:5: He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed
in white raiment; 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.
3:6: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:7: And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia
write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he
that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth;
and shutteth, and no man openeth;
3:8: I know thy works: behold, I have set before
thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little
strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
3:9: Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of
Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold,
I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know
that I have loved thee.
3:10: Because thou hast kept the word of my patience,
I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall
come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
3:11: Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which
thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
3:12: Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in
the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will
write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of
my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven
from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
3:13: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:14: And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans
write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness,
the beginning of the creation of God;
3:15: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold
nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
3:16: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither
cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
3:17: Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou
art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
3:18: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in
the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou
mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not
appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest
3:19: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be
zealous therefore, and repent.
3:20: 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.
3:21: To him that overcometh will I grant to sit
with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down
with my Father in his throne.
3:22: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches.
4:1: After this 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; which said, Come up hither,
and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
4:2: And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold,
a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
4:3: And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper
and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne,
in sight like unto an emerald.
4:4: And round about the throne were four and twenty
seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting,
clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of
4:5: And out of the throne proceeded lightnings
and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire
burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
4:6: And before the throne there was a sea of glass
like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about
the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
4:7: And the first beast was like a lion, and the
second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a
man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
4:8: And the four beasts had each of them six wings
about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not
day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which
was, and is, and is to come.
4:9: And when those beasts give glory and honour
and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever
4:10: The four and twenty elders fall down before
him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever
and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
4:11: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory
and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for
thy pleasure they are and were created.
5:1: And I saw in the right hand of him that sat
on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed
with seven seals.
5:2: And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a
loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals
5:3: And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither
under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
5:4: And I wept much, because no man was found worthy
to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5:5: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not:
behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath
prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
5:6: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the
throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders,
stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven
eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the
5:7: And he came and took the book out of the right
hand of him that sat upon the throne.
5:8: And when he had taken the book, the four beasts
and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every
one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are
the prayers of saints.
5:9: And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art
worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou
wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every
kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth.
5:11: And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many
angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and
the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands
5:12: Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb
that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength,
and honour, and glory, and blessing.
5:13: And every creature which is in heaven, and
on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea,
and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour,
and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
5:14: And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four
and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for
ever and ever.
6:1: And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals,
and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four
beasts saying, Come and see.
6:2: And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he
that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and
he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
6:3: And when he had opened the second seal, I heard
the second beast say, Come and see.
6:4: And there went out another horse that was red:
and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from
the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was
given unto him a great sword.
6:5: And when he had opened the third seal, I heard
the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black
horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6:6: And I heard a voice in the midst of the four
beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures
of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
6:7: And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard
the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
6:8: And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and
his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth,
to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with
the beasts of the earth.
6:9: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw
under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word
of God, and for the testimony which they held:
6:10: And they cried with a loud voice, saying,
How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge
our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
6:11: And white robes were given unto every one
of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet
for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their
brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
6:12: And I beheld when he had opened the sixth
seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became
black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
6:13: And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth,
even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken
of a mighty wind.
6:14: And the heaven departed as a scroll when it
is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out
of their places.
6:15: And the kings of the earth, and the great
men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty
men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in
the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
6:16: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall
on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne,
and from the wrath of the Lamb:
6:17: For the great day of his wrath is come; and
who shall be able to stand?
7:1: And after these things I saw four angels standing
on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the
earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the
sea, nor on any tree.
7:2: And 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,
7:3: Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea,
nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in
7:4: And I heard the number of them which were sealed:
and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of
all the tribes of the children of Israel.
7:5: Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
7:6: 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.
7:7: 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.
7:8: 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.
7:9: After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude,
which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people,
and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed
with white robes, and palms in their hands;
7:10: And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation
to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
7:11: And all the angels stood round about the throne,
and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the
throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
7:12: Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom,
and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our
God for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13: And one of the elders answered, saying unto
me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence
7:14: And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And
he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation,
and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood
of the Lamb.
7:15: Therefore are they before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth
on the throne shall dwell among them.
7:16: They shall hunger no more, neither thirst
any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:17: For the Lamb which is in the midst of the
throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains
of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
8:1: And when he had opened the seventh seal, there
was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
8:2: And I saw the seven angels which stood before
God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
8:3: And another angel came and stood at the altar,
having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense,
that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the
golden altar which was before the throne.
8:4: And the smoke of the incense, which came with
the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's
8:5: And the angel took the censer, and filled it
with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there
were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
8:6: And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets
prepared themselves to sound.
8:7: 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 trees was burnt up, and all green
grass was burnt up.
8:8: 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;
8:9: And the third part of the creatures which were
in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships
8:10: And the third angel sounded, and there fell
a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell
upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
8:11: And the name of the star is called Wormwood:
and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men
died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
8:12: 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 stars; so as the third part of them was
darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the
8:13: And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through
the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe,
to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of
the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
9:1: And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star
fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key
of the bottomless pit.
9:2: And he opened the bottomless pit; and there
arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace;
and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of
9:3: And there came out of the smoke locusts upon
the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of
the earth have power.
9:4: And it was commanded them that they should
not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither
any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in
9:5: And to them it was given that they should not
kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and
their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh
9:6: And in those days shall men seek death, and
shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee
9:7: And the shapes of the locusts were like unto
horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were
crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
9:8: And they had hair as the hair of women, and
their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9:9: And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates
of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots
of many horses running to battle.
9:10: And they had tails like unto scorpions, and
there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt
men five months.
9:11: And they had a king over them, which is the
angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is
Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
9:12: One woe is past; and, behold, there come two
woes more hereafter.
9:13: And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a
voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before
9:14: Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet,
Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
9:15: And the four angels were loosed, which were
prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for
to slay the third part of men.
9:16: And the number of the army of the horsemen
were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of
9:17: And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and
them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth,
and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of
lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
9:18: By these three was the third part of men killed,
by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued
out of their mouths.
9:19: For their power is in their mouth, and in
their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had
heads, and with them they do hurt.
9:20: And the rest of the men which were not killed
by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands,
that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver,
and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor
hear, nor walk:
9:21: Neither repented they of their murders, nor
of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
10:1: And I saw another mighty angel come down from
heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head,
and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of
10:2: And he had in his hand a little book open:
and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the
10:3: And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion
roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
10:4: And when the seven thunders had uttered their
voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven
saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders
uttered, and write them not.
10:5: And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea
and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
10:6: And sware by him that liveth for ever and
ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and
the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the
things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
10:7: But in the days of the voice of the seventh
angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should
be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
10:8: And the voice which I heard from heaven spake
unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is
open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and
upon the earth.
10:9: And I went unto the angel, and said unto him,
Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat
it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in
thy mouth sweet as honey.
10:10: And I took the little book out of the angel's
hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and
as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
10:11: And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again
before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
11:1: And there was given me a reed like unto a
rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple
of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
11:2: But the court which is without the temple
leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles:
and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
11:3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses,
and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore
days, clothed in sackcloth.
11:4: These are the two olive trees, and the two
candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
11:5: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth
out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man
will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
11:6: These have power to shut heaven, that it rain
not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters
to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues,
as often as they will.
11:7: And when they shall have finished their testimony,
the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make
war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
11:8: And their dead bodies shall lie in the street
of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt,
where also our Lord was crucified.
11:9: And they of the people and kindreds and tongues
and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half,
and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
11:10: And they that dwell upon the earth shall
rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to
another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt
on the earth.
11:11: And after three days and an half the Spirit
of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their
feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
11:12: And they heard a great voice from heaven
saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven
in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
11:13: And the same hour was there a great earthquake,
and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were
slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted,
and gave glory to the God of heaven.
11:14: The second woe is past; and, behold, the
third woe cometh quickly.
11:15: And the seventh angel sounded; and there
were 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.
11:16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat
before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped
11:17: Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken
to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
11:18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath
is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets,
and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great;
and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
11:19: And the temple of God was opened in heaven,
and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and
there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake,
and great hail.
12:1: And there appeared a great wonder in heaven;
a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
12:2: And she being with child cried, travailing
in birth, and pained to be delivered.
12:3: And there appeared another wonder in heaven;
and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns,
and seven crowns upon his heads.
12:4: 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 which was ready to be delivered, for to devour
her child as soon as it was born.
12:5: And she brought forth a man child, who was
to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught
up unto God, and to his throne.
12:6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where
she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there
a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
12:7: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his
angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his
12:8: And prevailed not; neither was their place
found any more in heaven.
12:9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old
serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole
world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast
out with him.
12:10: And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God,
and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is
cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
12:11: And they overcame him by the blood of the
Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their
lives unto the death.
12:12: Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that
dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!
for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because
he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
12:13: And when the dragon saw that he was cast
unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the
12:14: And to the woman were given two wings of
a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her
place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half
a time, from the face of the serpent.
12:15: And the serpent cast out of his mouth water
as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried
away of the flood.
12:16: And the earth helped the woman, and the earth
opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon
cast out of his mouth.
12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman,
and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep
the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
13:1: And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and
saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten
horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name
13:2: 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 seat, and great authority.
13:3: And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded
to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered
after the beast.
13:4: And they worshipped the dragon which gave
power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who
is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
13:5: And there was given unto him a mouth speaking
great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to
continue forty and two months.
13:6: And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against
God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that
dwell in heaven.
13:7: And it was given unto him to make war with
the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over
all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
13:8: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship
him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world.
13:9: If any man have an ear, let him hear.
13:10: He that leadeth into captivity shall go into
captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with
the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
13:11: And I beheld another beast coming up out
of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as
13:12: And he exerciseth all the power of the first
beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein
to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13:13: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh
fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
13:14: And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth
by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the
sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that
they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by
a sword, and did live.
13:15: And he had power to give life unto the image
of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and
cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast
should be killed.
13:16: And he causeth all, both small and great,
rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right
hand, or in their foreheads:
13:17: And that no man might buy or sell, save he
that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of
13:18: 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 threescore and six.
14:1: And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the
mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having
his Father's name written in their foreheads.
14:2: And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice
of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard
the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
14:3: And they sung as it were a new song before
the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no
man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand,
which were redeemed from the earth.
14:4: These are they which were not defiled with
women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb
whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being
the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
14:5: And in their mouth was found no guile: for
they are without fault before the throne of God.
14:6: And I saw another angel fly in the midst of
heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that
dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue,
14:7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give
glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship
him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains
14:8: And there followed another angel, saying,
Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made
all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
14:9: And the third angel followed them, saying
with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image,
and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
14:10: The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath
of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his
indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone
in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the
14:11: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth
up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who
worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark
of his name.
14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here
are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
14:13: And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto
me, 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 do follow them.
14:14: And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and
upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his
head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
14:15: And another angel came out of the temple,
crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust
in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap;
for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
14:16: And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his
sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
14:17: And another angel came out of the temple
which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
14:18: And another angel came out from the altar,
which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that
had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and
gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are
14:19: And the angel thrust in his sickle into the
earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the
great winepress of the wrath of God.
14:20: And the winepress was trodden without the
city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse
bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
15:1: And I saw another sign in heaven, great and
marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in
them is filled up the wrath of God.
15:2: And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled
with fire: and them that 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.
15:3: And they sing the song of Moses the servant
of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous
are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways,
thou King of saints.
15:4: Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify
thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and
worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
15:5: And after that I looked, and, behold, the
temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
15:6: And the seven angels came out of the temple,
having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and
having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
15:7: And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven
angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth
for ever and ever.
15:8: And the temple was filled with smoke from
the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter
into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were
16:1: And I heard a great voice out of the temple
saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials
of the wrath of God upon the earth.
16:2: And the first went, and poured out his vial
upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon
the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped
16:3: And the second angel poured out his vial upon
the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living
soul died in the sea.
16:4: And the third angel poured out his vial upon
the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
16:5: And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou
art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because
thou hast judged thus.
16:6: For they have shed the blood of saints and
prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are
16:7: And I heard another out of the altar say,
Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
16:8: And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon
the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
16:9: And men were scorched with great heat, and
blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues:
and they repented not to give him glory.
16:10: And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon
the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and
they gnawed their tongues for pain,
16:11: And blasphemed the God of heaven because
of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
16:12: And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon
the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up,
that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
16:13: And 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.
16:14: For they are the spirits of devils, working
miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the
whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of
16:15: Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he
that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and
they see his shame.
16:16: And he gathered them together into a place
called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
16:17: And the seventh angel poured out his vial
into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of
heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
16:18: And there were voices, and thunders, and
lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not
since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so
16:19: And the great city was divided into three
parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came
in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine
of the fierceness of his wrath.
16:20: And every island fled away, and the mountains
were not found.
16:21: And there fell upon men a great hail out
of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed
God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof
was exceeding great.
17:1: And there came one of the seven angels which
had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come
hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore
that sitteth upon many waters:
17:2: With whom the kings of the earth have committed
fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk
with the wine of her fornication.
17:3: So he carried me away in the spirit into the
wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast,
full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet
colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having
a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of
17:5: And upon her forehead was a name written,
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.
17:6: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood
of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and
when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
17:7: And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst
thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of
the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten
17:8: The beast that thou sawest was, and is not;
and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition:
and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were
not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world,
when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
17:9: And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The
seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
17:10: And there are seven kings: five are fallen,
and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh,
he must continue a short space.
17:11: And the beast that was, and is not, even
he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
17:12: And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten
kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power
as kings one hour with the beast.
17:13: These have one mind, and shall give their
power and strength unto the beast.
17:14: These shall make war with the Lamb, and the
Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of
kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and
17:15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou
sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes,
and nations, and tongues.
17:16: And the ten horns which thou sawest upon
the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate
and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17:17: For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil
his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast,
until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
17:18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great
city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
18:1: And after these things I saw another angel
come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened
with his glory.
18:2: And he cried mightily with a strong voice,
saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become
the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and
a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
18:3: For all nations have drunk of the wine of
the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have
committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth
are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins,
and that ye receive not of her plagues.
18:5: For her sins have reached unto heaven, and
God hath remembered her iniquities.
18:6: Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double
unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath
filled fill to her double.
18:7: How much she hath glorified herself, and lived
deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith
in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no
18:8: Therefore shall her plagues come in one day,
death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned
with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
18:9: And the kings of the earth, who have committed
fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her,
and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
18:10: Standing afar off for the fear of her torment,
saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city!
for in one hour is thy judgment come.
18:11: And the merchants of the earth shall weep
and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
18:12: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and
precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and
silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels
of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of
brass, and iron, and marble,
18:13: And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments,
and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat,
and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and
souls of men.
18:14: And the fruits that thy soul lusted after
are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly
are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
18:15: The merchants of these things, which were
made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment,
weeping and wailing,
18:16: And saying, Alas, alas, that great city,
that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked
with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
18:17: For in one hour so great riches is come to
nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and
sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18:18: And cried when they saw the smoke of her
burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
18:19: And they cast dust on their heads, and cried,
weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein
were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her
costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy
apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
18:21: And a mighty angel took up a stone like a
great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence
shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found
no more at all.
18:22: And the voice of harpers, and musicians,
and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in
thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found
any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard
no more at all in thee;
18:23: And the light of a candle shall shine no
more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the
bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants
were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all
18:24: And in her was found the blood of prophets,
and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
19:1: And after these things I heard a great voice
of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory,
and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
19:2: For true and righteous are his judgments:
for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth
with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants
at her hand.
19:3: And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke
rose up for ever and ever.
19:4: And the four and twenty elders and the four
beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying,
19:5: And a voice came out of the throne, saying,
Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both
small and great.
19:6: 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 thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent
19:7: Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour
to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath
made herself ready.
19:8: And to her was granted that she should be
arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is
the righteousness of saints.
19:9: And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they
which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he
saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
19:10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And
he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and
of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God:
for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
19:11: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white
horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
19:12: His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on
his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no
man knew, but he himself.
19:13: And he was clothed with a vesture dipped
in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
19:14: And the armies which were in heaven followed
him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
19:15: And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword,
that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them
with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness
and wrath of Almighty God.
19:16: And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh
a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
19:17: And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and
he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in
the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto
the supper of the great God;
19:18: That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the
flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh
of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all
men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19:19: And I saw the beast, and the kings of the
earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against
him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
19:20: And the beast was taken, and with him the
false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he
deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them
that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake
of fire burning with brimstone.
19:21: And the remnant were slain with the sword
of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his
mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
20:1: And I saw an angel come down from heaven,
having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his
20:2: And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
20:3: And cast him into the bottomless pit, and
shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the
nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled:
and after that he must be loosed a little season.
20:4: And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them
that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word
of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image,
neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their
hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
20:5: But the rest of the dead lived not again until
the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
20:6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the
first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but
they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with
him a thousand years.
20:7: And when the thousand years are expired, Satan
shall be loosed out of his prison,
20:8: And shall go out to deceive the nations which
are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather
them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of
20:9: And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
20:10: And the devil that deceived them was cast
into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false
prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and
20:11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that
sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away;
and there was found no place for them.
20:12: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand
before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those
things which were written in the books, according to their works.
20:13: And the sea gave up the dead which were in
it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:
and they were judged every man according to their works.
20:14: And death and hell were cast into the lake
of fire. This is the second death.
20:15: And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
21:1: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for
the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there
was no more sea.
21:2: And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,
coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned
for her husband.
21:3: And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with
them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with
them, and be their God.
21:4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their
eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are
21:5: And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold,
I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words
are true and faithful.
21:6: And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha
and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that
is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
21:7: He that overcometh shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
21:8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and
idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which
burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
21:9: And there came unto me one of the seven angels
which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and
talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride,
the Lamb's wife.
21:10: And he carried me away in the spirit to a
great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy
Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
21:11: Having the glory of God: and her light was
like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear
21:12: And 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 the children of Israel:
21:13: On the east three gates; on the north three
gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
21:14: And the wall of the city had twelve foundations,
and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15: And he that talked with me had a golden reed
to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
21:16: And the city lieth foursquare, and the length
is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the
reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and
the height of it are equal.
21:17: And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred
and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man,
that is, of the angel.
21:18: And the building of the wall of it was of
jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
21:19: And the foundations of the wall of the city
were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation
was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the
fourth, an emerald;
21:20: The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius;
the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz;
the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth,
21:21: And the twelve gates were twelve pearls;
every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city
was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
21:22: And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord
God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23: And the city had no need of the sun, neither
of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten
it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24: And the nations of them which are saved shall
walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their
glory and honour into it.
21:25: And the gates of it shall not be shut at
all by day: for there shall be no night there.
21:26: And they shall bring the glory and honour
of the nations into it.
21:27: And there shall in no wise enter into it
any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination,
or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book
22:1: And he shewed me a pure river of water of
life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and
of the Lamb.
22:2: In the midst of the street of it, and on either
side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve
manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves
of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
22:3: And there shall be no more curse: but the
throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants
shall serve him:
22:4: And they shall see his face; and his name
shall be in their foreheads.
22:5: And there shall be no night there; and they
need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth
them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
22:6: And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful
and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel
to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
22:7: Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that
keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
22:8: And I John saw these things, and heard them.
And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the
feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
22:9: Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not:
for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets,
and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
22:10: And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings
of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
22:11: He that is unjust, let him be unjust still:
and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is
righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let
him be holy still.
22:12: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward
is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
22:13: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the
end, the first and the last.
22:14: Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in
through the gates into the city.
22:15: For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth
and maketh a lie.
22:16: I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto
you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring
of David, and the bright and morning star.
22:17: And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And
let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
22:18: For I testify unto every man that heareth
the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto
these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written
in this book:
22:19: And if any man shall take away from the words
of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out
of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things
which are written in this book.
22:20: He which testifieth these things saith, Surely
I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
22:21: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with
you all. Amen.
