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 hand.
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,
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
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 grown
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
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nicolaitans, which I
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 dwelleth.
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 commit
15 So hast thou also some that hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans in like
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
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
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 churches.
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 churches.
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
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 crown.
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 churches.
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 God:
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold
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 repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the
door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 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 churches.
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 pass hereafter.
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 upon.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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, and blessing.
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 ever.
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 saying,
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
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
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 the Lamb:
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
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 the throne.
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 sound.
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 blood;
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 made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and
the third part of the moon, and the third part of the 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
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as `teeth' of
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 to war.
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 brimstone.
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 hurt.
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 made bitter.
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 shall desire.
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 kill them.
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
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 them.
13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city
fell; and there were killed in the earthquake seven thousand persons: and the
rest were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of 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 our 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 with 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 his throne.
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 threescore days.
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 heaven.
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
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 serpent.
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
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 beast;
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 months.
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
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
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
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 Lamb.
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
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 Lamb:
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
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
17 Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also having a
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
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
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 earth.
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 the sea.
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 him glory.
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 Hebrew
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 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 wonder.
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
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 one
13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority unto the beast.
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
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
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 double.
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
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,
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 desolate.
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
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 and
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 ready.
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 God.
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
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 make war.
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
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 his
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
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 them.
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 their works.
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 second death.
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;
20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth,
beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the several gates was of
one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God the Almighty, and the Lamb, are
the temple thereof.
23 And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine upon it:
