1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto his
servants, [even] the things which must shortly come to pass: and he sent
and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John;
2 who bare witness of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus
Christ, [even] of all things that he saw.
3. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of the
prophecy, and keep the things that are written therein: for the time is at
4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace,
from him who is and who was and who is to come; and from the seven Spirits
that are before his throne;
5 and from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, the firstborn of
the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loveth us,
and loosed us from our sins by his blood;
6 and he made us [to be] a kingdom, [to be] priests unto his God and
Father; to him [be] the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and
they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over
him. Even so, Amen.
8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was
and who is to come, the Almighty.
9. I John, your brother and partaker with you in tribulation and kingdom
and patience [which are] in Jesus, was in the isle that is called Patmos,
for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a great
voice, as of a trumpet
11 saying, What thou seest, write in a book and send [it] to the seven
churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, and unto
Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And having turned I
saw seven golden candlesticks;
13 and in the midst of the candlesticks one like unto a son of man,
clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about at the breasts with
a golden girdle.
14 And his head and his hair were white as white wool, [white] as snow;
and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 and his feet like unto burnished brass, as if it had been refined in a
furnace; and his voice as the voice of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth
proceeded a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun
shineth in his strength.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his
right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last,
18 and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for
evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
19 Write therefore the things which thou sawest, and the things which
are, and the things which shall come to pass hereafter;
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 are seven churches.
1. To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These things saith he that
holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, he that walketh in the midst of
the seven golden candlesticks:
2 I know thy works, and thy toil and patience, and that thou canst not
bear evil men, and didst try them that call themselves apostles, and they
are not, and didst find them false;
3 and thou hast patience and didst bear for my name's sake, and hast not
4 But I have [this] against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love.
5 Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first
works; or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its
place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nicolaitans,
which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of
life, which is in the Paradise of God.
8. And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These things saith the
first and the last, who was dead, and lived [again]:
9 I know thy tribulation, and thy poverty (but thou art rich), and the
blasphemy of them that say they are Jews, and they art not, but are a
synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: behold, the devil
is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye
shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will
give thee the crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
churches. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
12. and to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These things saith
he that hath the sharp two-edged sword:
13 I know where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan's throne is; and thou
holdest fast my name, and didst not deny my faith, even in the days of
Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there some
that hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock
before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to
15 So hast thou also some that hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans in
16 Repent therefore; or else I come to thee quickly, and I will make war
against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna,
and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written,
which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it.
18. And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith
the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are
like unto burnished brass:
19 I know thy works, and thy love and faith and ministry and patience,
and that thy last works are more than the first.
20 But I have [this] against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel,
who calleth herself a prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my servants
to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
21 And I gave her time that she should repent; and she willeth not to
repent of her fornication.
22 Behold, I cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her
into great tribulation, except they repent of her works.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall
know that I am he that searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto
each one of you according to your works.
24 But to you I say, to the rest that are in Thyatira, as many as have
not this teaching, who know not the deep things of Satan, as they are wont
to say; I cast upon you none other burden.
25 Nevertheless that which ye have, hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and he that keepeth my works unto the end, to
him will I give authority over the nations:
27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the
potter are broken to shivers; as I also have received of my Father:
28 and I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
1. And to 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 thou art dead.
2 Be thou watchful, and establish the things that remain, which were
ready to die: for I have found no works of thine perfected before my God.
3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and didst hear; and keep
[it], and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come as a
thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 But thou hast a few names in Sardis that did not defile their garments:
and they shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white garments; and I will
in no wise blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his
name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
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 none shall shut, and that shutteth and none openeth:
8 I know thy works (behold, I have set before thee a door opened, which
none can shut), that thou hast a little power, and didst keep my word, and
didst not deny my name.
9 Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are
Jews, and they 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.
10 Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee
from the hour of trial, that [hour] which is to come upon the whole world,
to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy
12 He that overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God,
and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of
my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh
down out of heaven from my God, and mine own new name.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
14. And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith
the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou
wert cold or hot.
16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew
thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need
of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched one and miserable
and poor and blind and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that thou mayest
become rich; and white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself, and
[that] the shame of thy nakedness be not made manifest; and eyesalve to
anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous therefore, and
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
21 He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my
throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the
1. After these things I saw, and behold, a door opened in heaven, and the
first voice that I heard, [a voice] as of a trumpet speaking with me, one
saying, Come up hither, and I will show thee the things which must come to
2 Straightway I was in the Spirit: and behold, there was a throne set in
heaven, and one sitting upon the throne;
3 and he that sat [was] to look upon like a jasper stone and a sardius:
and [there was] a rainbow round about the throne, like an emerald to look
4 And round about the throne [were] four and twenty thrones: and upon the
thrones [I saw] four and twenty elders sitting, arrayed in white garments;
and on their heads crowns of gold.
5 And out of the throne proceed lightnings and voices and thunders. And
[there was] seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the
seven Spirits of God;
6 and before the throne, as it were a sea of glass like a crystal; and in
the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, four living creatures
full of eyes before and behind.
7 And the first creature [was] like a lion, and the second creature like
a calf, and the third creature had a face as of a man, and the fourth
creature [was] like a flying eagle.
8. and the four living creatures, having each one of them six wings, are
full of eyes round about and within: and they have no rest day and night,
saying, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who
is and who is to come.
9 And when the living creatures shall give glory and honor and thanks to
him that sitteth on the throne, to him that liveth for ever and ever,
10 the four and twenty elders shall fall down before him that sitteth on
the throne, and shall worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and shall
cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Worthy art thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the
honor and the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy
will they were, and were created.
1. And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book
written within and on the back, close sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a great voice, Who is worthy
to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no one in the heaven, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able
to open the book, or to look thereon.
4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or
to look thereon:
5 and one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion that is
of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath overcome to open the book
and the seven seals thereof.
6. And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures,
and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been
slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of
God, sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came, and he taketh [it] out of the right hand of him that sat
on the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the four
and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having each one a harp, and
golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
9 And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy art thou to take the book, and
to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and didst purchase unto God
with thy blood [men] of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation,
10 and madest them [to be] unto our God a kingdom and priests; and they
reign upon earth.
11 And I saw, and I heard a voice of many angels round about the throne
and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was ten
thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12 saying with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb that hath been slain to
receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might and honor, and glory,
13 And every created thing which is in the heaven, and on the earth, and
under the earth, and on the sea, and all things are in them, heard I
saying, Unto him that sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb, [be] the
blessing, and the honor, and the glory, and the dominion, for ever and
14 And the four living creatures said, Amen. And the elders fell down and
1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one
of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, Come.
2 And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a
bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering,
and to conquer.
3. And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature
4 And another [horse] came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat
thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should
slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he opened the first seal, I heard the third living creature
saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon
had a balance in his hand.
6 And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living
creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of
barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.
7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth
living creature saying, Come.
8 And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name
was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them
authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with
famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
9. And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls
of them that had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony
which they held:
10 and they cried with a great voice, saying, How long, O Master, the
holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell
on the earth?
11 And there was given them to each one a white robe; and it was said
unto them, that they should rest yet for a little time, until their
fellow-servants also and their brethren, who should be killed even as they
were, should have fulfilled [their course].
12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great
earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole
moon became as blood;
13 and the stars of the heaven fell unto the earth, as a fig tree casteth
her unripe figs when she is shaken of a great wind.
14 And the heaven was removed as a scroll when it is rolled up; and every
mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the chief captains,
and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman and freeman, hid themselves
in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide
us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of
17 for the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?
1. After his I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth,
holding the four winds of the earth, that no wind should blow on the earth,
or on the sea, or upon any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascend from the sunrising, having the seal of
the living God: and he cried with a great voice to the four angels to whom
it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we
shall have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them that were sealed, a hundred and forty
and four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel:
5 Of the tribe of Judah [were] sealed twelve thousand: Of the tribe of
Reuben twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand;
6 Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Naphtali twelve
thousand; Of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand;
7 Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Levi twelve
thousand; Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand;
8 Of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Joseph twelve
thousand; Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand.
9 After these things I saw, and behold, a great multitude, which no man
could number, out of every nation and of [all] tribes and peoples and
tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, arrayed in white
robes, and palms in their hands;
10 and they cry with a great voice, saying, Salvation unto our God who
sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels were standing round about the throne, and [about]
the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell before the throne
on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and
honor, and power, and might, [be] unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, These that are arrayed
in white robes, who are they, and whence came they?
14 And I say unto him, My lord, thou knowest. And he said to me, These
are they that come of the great tribulation, and they washed their robes,
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God; and they serve him day
and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall spread his
tabernacle over them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the
sun strike upon them, nor any heat:
17 for the Lamb that is in the midst of the throne shall be their
shepherd, and shall guide them unto fountains of waters of life: and God
shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.
1. And when he opened the seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven
about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels that stand before God; and there were given
unto them seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood over the altar, having a golden
censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should add it
unto the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before
4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up
before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel taketh the censer; and he filled it with the fire of the
altar, and cast it upon the earth: and there followed thunders, and voices,
and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels that had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to
7. And the first sounded, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with
blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of the earth
was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green
grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning
with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became
9 and there died the third part of the creatures which were in the sea,
[even] they that had life; and the third part of the ships was destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell from heaven a great star,
burning as a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon
the fountains of the waters;
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
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;
that the third part of them should be darkened, and the day should not
shine for the third part of it, and the night in like manner.
13 And I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a
great voice, Woe, woe, woe, for them that dwell on the earth, by reason of
the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to sound.
1. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven fallen unto
the earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss.
2 And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up a smoke out of
the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were
darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was
given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was said unto them that they should not hurt the grass of the
earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only such men as have
not the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they
should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a
scorpion, when it striketh a man.
6 And in those days men shall seek death, and shall in no wise find it;
and they shall desire to die, and death fleeth from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for war;
and upon their heads as it were crowns like unto gold, and their faces were
as men's faces.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [teeth]
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 rushing
10 And they have tails like unto scorpions, and stings; and in their
tails is their power to hurt men five months.
11 They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew
is Abaddon, and in the Greek [tongue] he hath the name Apollyon.
12 The first Woe is past: behold, there come yet two Woes hereafter.
13. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the horns of the
golden altar which is before God,
14 one saying to the sixth angel that had one trumpet, Loose the four
angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four angels were loosed, that had been prepared for the hour
and day and month and year, that they should kill the third part of men.
16 And the number of the armies of the horsemen was twice ten thousand
times ten thousand: I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them,
having breastplates [as] of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone: and the
heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceedeth fire and smoke and
18 By these three plagues was the third part of men killed, by the fire
and the smoke and the brimstone, which proceeded out of their mouths.
19 For the power of the horses is in their mouth, and in their tails: for
their tails are like unto serpents, and have heads; and with them they
20 And the rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues,
repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship
demons, and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone,
and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 and they repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of
their fornication, nor of their thefts.
1. And I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, arrayed with
a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as the sun,
and his feet as pillars of fire;
2 and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot
upon the sea, and his left upon the earth;
3 and he cried with a great voice, as a lion roareth: and when he cried,
the seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders uttered [their voices], I was about to
write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the
seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel that I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth
lifted up his right hand to heaven,
6 and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heaven
and the things that are therein, and the earth and the things that are
therein, and the sea and the things that are therein, that there shall be
delay no longer:
7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to
sound, then is finished they mystery of God, according to the good tidings
which he declared to his servants the prophets.
8. And the voice which I heard from heaven, [I heard it] again speaking
with me, and saying, Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the
angel that standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, saying unto him that he should give me the
little book. And he saith unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall
make thy belly bitter, but in thy mouth it shall be sweet as honey.
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 when I had eaten it, my belly was
11 And they say unto me, Thou must prophesy again over many peoples and
nations and tongues and kings.
1. And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and one said, Rise, and
measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 And the court which is without the temple leave without, and measure it
not; for it hath been given unto the nations: and the holy city shall they
tread under foot forty and two months.
3. And I will give unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a
thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks, standing before
the Lord of the earth.
5 And if any man desireth to hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their
mouth and devoureth their enemies; and if any man shall desire to hurt
them, in this manner must he be killed.
6 These have the power to shut the heaven, that it rain not during the
days of their prophecy: and they have power over the waters to turn them
into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that
cometh up out of the abyss shall make war with them, and overcome them, and
8 And their dead bodies [lie] in the street of the great city, which
spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
9 And from among the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations do [men]
look upon their dead bodies three days and a half, and suffer not their
dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.
10 And they that dwell on the earth rejoice over them, and make merry;
and they shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets
tormented them that dwell on the earth.
11 And after the three days and a half the breath of life from God
entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon
them that beheld them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up
hither. And they went up into heaven in the cloud; and their enemies beheld
13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and the tenth part of
the city fell; and there were killed in the earthquake seven thousand
persons: and the rest were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14. The second Woe is past: behold, the third Woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there followed great voices in
heaven, and they said, The kingdom of the world is become [the kingdom] of
out Lord, and of his Christ: and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty elders, who sit before God on their thrones,
fell upon their faces and worshipped God,
17 saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who art and who
wast; because thou hast taken thy great power, and didst reign.
18 And the nations were wroth, and thy wrath came, and the time of the
dead to be judged, and [the time] to give their reward to thy servants the
prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, the small and
the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.
19 And there was opened the temple of God that is in heaven; and there
was seen in his temple the ark of his covenant; and there followed
lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail.
1. And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman arrayed with the sun, and
the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars;
2 and she was the child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in
pain to be delivered.
3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red
dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems.
4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did
cast them to the earth: and the dragon standeth before the woman that is
about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her child.
5 And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the
nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared
of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels [going forth] to
war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels;
8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in
9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called
the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to
the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the
salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of
his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them
before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of
the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.
12. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the
earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having
great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he
persecuted the woman that brought forth the man [child].
14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle,
that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is
nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a
river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and
swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war
with the rest of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and hold the
testimony of Jesus:
1. and he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out
of the sea, having ten horns, and seven heads, and on his horns ten
diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as
[the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon
gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority.
3 And [I saw] one of his heads as though it had been smitten unto death;
and his death-stroke was healed: and the whole earth wondered after the
4 and they worshipped the dragon, because he gave his authority unto the
beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?
And who is able to war with him?
5 and there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and
blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty and two
6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his
name, and his tabernacle, [even] them that dwell in the heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome
them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe and people and
tongue and nation.
8 And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, [every one] whose
name hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of
life of the Lamb that hath been slain.
9 If any man hath an ear, let him hear.
10 If any man [is] for captivity, into captivity he goeth: if any man
shall kill with the sword, with the sword must he be killed. Here is the
patience and the faith of the saints.
11. And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two
horns like unto lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight.
And he maketh the earth and them dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose death-stroke was healed.
13 And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down
out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs
which it was given him 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 who hath
the stroke of the sword and lived.
15 And it was given [unto him] to give breath to it, [even] to the image
to the breast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause
that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the
poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their
right hand, or upon their forehead;
17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath
the mark, [even] the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number
of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred
and sixty and six.
1. And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with
him a hundred and forty and four thousand, having his name, and the name of
his Father, written on their foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as
the voice of a great thunder: and the voice which I heard [was] as [the
voice] of harpers harping with their harps:
3 and they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the
four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn the song save
the hundred and forty and four thousand, [even] they that had been
purchased out of the earth.
4 These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins.
These [are] they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were
purchased from among men, [to be] the firstfruits unto God and unto the
5 And in their mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.
6. And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having eternal good
tidings to proclaim unto them that dwell on the earth, and unto every
nation and tribe and tongue and people;
7 and he saith with a great voice, Fear God, and give him glory; for the
hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made the heaven and the
earth and sea and fountains of waters.
8 And another, a second angel, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is
Babylon the great, that hath made all the nations to drink of the wine of
the wrath of her fornication.
9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice,
If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his
forehead, or upon his hand,
10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared
unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and
brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the
11 and the smoke of their torment goeth up for ever and ever; and they
have no rest day and night, they that worship the beast and his image, and
whoso receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints, they that keep the commandments of
God, and the faith of Jesus.
13. And I heard the voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead
who die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may
rest from their labors; for their works follow with them.
14 And I saw, and behold, a white cloud; and on the cloud [I saw] one
sitting like unto a son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in
his hand sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out from the temple, crying with a great voice
to him that sat on the cloud, Send forth thy sickle, and reap: for the hour
to reap is come; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud cast his sickle upon the earth; and the
earth was reaped.
17 Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also
having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, he that hath power over
fire; and he called with a great voice to him that had the sharp sickle,
saying, Send forth thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of
the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And the angel cast his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage
of the earth, and cast it into the winepress, the great [winepress], of the
wrath of God.
20 And the winepress are trodden without the city, and there came out
blood from the winepress, even unto the bridles of the horses, as far as a
thousand and six hundred furlongs.
1. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels
having seven plagues, [which are] the last, for in them is finished the
wrath of God.
2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and them that
come off victorious from the beast, and from his image, and from the number
of his name, standing by the sea of glass, having harps of God.
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, O Lord God, the Almighty;
righteous and true are thy ways, thou King of the ages.
4 Who shall not fear, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art
holy; for all the nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy
righteous acts have been made manifest.
5. And after these things I saw, and the temple of the tabernacle of the
testimony in heaven was opened:
6 and there came out from the temple the seven angels that had the seven
plagues, arrayed with [precious] stone, pure [and] bright, and girt about
their breasts with golden girdles.
7 And one of the four living creatures gave unto the seven angels seven
golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from
his power; and none was able to enter into the temple, till the seven
plagues of the seven angels should be finished.
1. And I heard a great voice out of the temple, saying to the seven
angels, Go ye, and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God into the
2 And the first went, and poured out his bowl into the earth; and it
became a noisome and grievous sore upon the men that had the mark of the
beast, and that worshipped his image.
3 And the second poured out his bowl into the sea; and it became blood as
of a dead man; and every living soul died, [even] the things that were in
4 And the third poured out his bowl into the rivers and the fountains of
the waters; and it became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying, Righteous art thou, who art
and who wast, thou Holy One, because thou didst thus judge:
6 for they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, and blood
hast thou given them to drink: they are worthy.
7 And I heard the altar saying, Yea, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and
righteous are thy judgments.
8. And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given unto
it to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched men with great heat: and they blasphemed the name
of God who hath the power over these plagues; and they repented not to give
10 And the fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and
his kingdom was darkened; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their
sores; and they repented not of their works.
12. And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river, the [river]
Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way might by made
ready for the kings that [come] from the sunrising.
13 And I saw [coming] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the
mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three
unclean spirits, as it were frogs:
14 for they are spirits of demons, working signs; which go forth unto the
kings of the whole world, to gather them together unto the war of the great
day of God, the Almighty.
15 (Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth
his garments, lest he walked naked, and they see his shame.)
16 And they gathered them together into the place which is called in
17. And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air; and there came forth
a great voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It is done:
18 and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a
great earthquake, such as was not since there were men upon the earth, so
great an earthquake, so mighty.
19 And the great city was divided into into three parts, and the cities
of the nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of
God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And great hail, [every stone] about the weight of a talent, cometh
down out of heaven upon men: and men blasphemed God because of the plague
of the hail; for the plague thereof is exceeding great.
1. And there came one of the seven angels that had the seven bowls, and
spake with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the judgment of the
great harlot that sitteth upon many waters;
2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and they that
dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her fornication.
3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a
woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy,
having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold
and precious stone and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of
abominations, even the unclean things of her fornication,
5 and upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE
MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the
blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered with a great
7. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou wonder? I will tell
thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which
hath the seven heads and the ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and is about to come up out
of the abyss, and to go into perdition. And they that dwell on the earth
shall wonder, [they] whose name hath not been written in the book of life
from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast, how that he
was, and is not, and shall come.
9 Here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains,
on which the woman sitteth:
10 and they are seven kings; the five are fallen, the one is, the other
is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a little while.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is
of the seven; and he goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns that thou sawest are ten kings, who have received no
kingdom as yet; but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for
13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority unto the
14. These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them,
for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and they [also shall overcome]
that are with him, called and chosen and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot
sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate
the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh,
and shall burn her utterly with fire.
17 For God did put in their hearts to do his mind, and to come to one
mind, and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God
should be accomplished.
18 And the woman whom thou sawest is the great city, which reigneth over
the kings of the earth.
1. After these things I saw another angel coming down out of heaven,
having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the
great, and is become a habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean
spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For by the wine of the wrath of her fornication all the nations are
fallen; and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the
merchants of the earth waxed rich by the power of her wantonness.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people,
out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues:
5 for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and God hath remembered her
6 Render unto her even as she rendered, and double [unto her] the double
according to her works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle unto her
7 How much soever she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give
her of torment and mourning: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and
am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning.
8 Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and
famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord
God who judged her.
9. And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived
wantonly with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they look upon the
smoke of her burning,
10 standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the
great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man
buyeth their merchandise any more;
12 merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and
fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; and all thyine wood, and
every vessel of ivory, and every vessel made of most precious wood, and of
brass, and iron, and marble;
13 and cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and ointment, and frankincense,
and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep; and
[merchandise] of horses and chariots and slaves; and souls of men.
14 And the fruits which thy soul lusted after are gone from thee, and all
things that were dainty and sumptuous are perished from thee, and [men]
shall find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand
afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;
16 saying, Woe, woe, the great city, she that was arrayed in fine linen
and purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearl!
17 for in an hour so great riches is made desolate. And every shipmaster,
and every one that saileth any wither, and mariners, and as many as gain
their living by sea, stood afar off,
18 and cried out as they looked upon the smoke of her burning, saying,
What [city] is like the great city?
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning,
saying, Woe, woe, the great city, wherein all that had their ships in the
sea were made rich by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye saints, and ye apostles, and ye
prophets; for God hath judged your judgment on her.
21 And a strong angel took up a stone as it were a great millstone and
cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with a mighty fall shall Babylon, the
great city, be cast down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers and minstrels and flute-players and
trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of
whatsoever craft, shall be found any more at all in thee; and the voice of
a mill shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 and the light of a lamp 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 princes of the earth; for with thy sorcery
were all the nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all
that have been slain upon the earth.
1. After these things I heard as it were a great voice of a great
multitude in heaven, saying, Hallelujah; Salvation, and glory, and power,
belong to our God:
2 for true and righteous are his judgments; for he hath judged the great
harlot, her that corrupted the earth with her fornication, and he hath
avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And a second time they say, Hallelujah. And her smoke goeth up for ever
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four living creatures fell down
and worshipped God that sitteth on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah.
5. And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God,
all ye his servants, ye that fear him, the small and the great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice
of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah:
for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigneth.
7 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto
him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself
8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen,
bright [and] pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they that are bidden to the
marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are true words of
10 And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith unto me,
See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren
that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God; for the testimony of Jesus
is the spirit of prophecy.
11. And I saw the heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that
sat thereon called Faithful and True; and in righteous he doth judge and
12 And his eyes [are] a flame of fire, and upon his head [are] many
diadems; and he hath a name written which no one knoweth but he himself.
13 And he [is] arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his name is
called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses,
clothed in fine linen, white [and] pure.
15 And out of his mouth proceedeth 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 of the wrath of God, the Almighty.
16 And he hath on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KINGS OF
KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud
voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid heaven, Come [and] be
gathered together unto the great supper of God;
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 thereon,
and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies,
gathered together to make war against him that sat upon the horse, and
against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought
the signs in his sight, wherewith he deceived them that had received the
mark of the beast and them that worshipped his image: they two were cast
alive into the lake of fire that burneth with brimstone:
21 and the rest were killed with the sword of him that sat upon the
horse, [even the sword] which came forth out of his mouth: and all the
birds were filled with their flesh.
1. And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the
abyss and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the Devil and
Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut [it], and sealed [it] over him,
that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should
be finished: after this he must be loosed for a little time.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto
them: and [I saw] the souls of them that had been beheaded for the
testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as worshipped not the
beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and
upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be
finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: over
these the second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God and
of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are finished, Satan shall be loosed out of
8 and shall come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four
corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp
of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down out of
heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and
brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet; and they shall
be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose
face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for
12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the
throne; and books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the
book] of life: and the dead were judged out of the things which were
written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and Hades gave
up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to
14 And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death, [even] the lake of fire.
15 And if any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into
the lake of fire.
1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the
first earth are passed away; and the sea is no more.
2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven of
God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Behold, the
tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall dwell with them, and they shall
be his peoples, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God:
4 and he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be
no more; neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more:
the first things are passed away.
5 And he that sitteth on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And he saith, Write: for these words are faithful and true.
6 And he said unto me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the
Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of
the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be his God,
and he shall be my son.
8 But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers,
and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part
[shall be] in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the
9. And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who
were laden with the seven last plagues; and he spake with me, saying, Come
hither, I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and
showed me the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God: her light was like unto a stone most
precious, as it were a jasper stone, clear as crystal:
12 having a wall great and high; having 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:
13 on the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the
south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve
names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that spake with me had for a measure a golden reed to measure
the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length thereof is as great as
the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand
furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty and four cubits,
[according to] the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
18 And the building of the wall thereof was jasper: and the city was pure
gold, like unto pure glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all manner
of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire;
the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;

the earth bring their glory into it.
25 And the gates thereof shall in no wise be shut by day (for there shall
be no night there):
26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it:
27 and there shall in no wise enter into it anything unclean, or he that
maketh an abomination and a lie: but only they that are written in the
Lamb's book of life.

proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,

6. And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord,
the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angels to show unto his
servants the things which must shortly come to pass.
7 And behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he that keepeth the words of the
prophecy of this book.
8 And I John am he that heard and saw these things. And when I heard and
saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that showed me
9 And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with
thee and with thy brethren the prophets, and with them that keep the words
of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not up the words of the prophecy of this
book; for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unrighteous, let him do unrighteousness still: and he that
is filthy, let him be made filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him
do righteousness still: and he that is holy, let him be made holy still.
12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each
man according as his work is.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning

this book, if any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the
plagues which are written in this book:
19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of
the holy city, which are written in this book.
20. He who testifieth these things saith, Yea: I come quickly. Amen: come,
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with the saints. Amen.
