The reuelacion of Iesus Christ, which God gaue vnto him, for to shewe vnto his

his angel vnto his seruaunt Ihon
2 which bare recorde of the worde of God, and of the testimony of Iesus
Christe, and of all thinges that he sawe.
3 Happy is he yt readeth, and they that heare the wordes of the prophesy
and kepe thoo thinges which are wrytten therin. For the tyme is at honde.
4 Ihon to the seuen cogregacions in
. Grace be with you & peace, fro him which is and which was, and which is to
come, & fro the seuen spretes which are present before his trone,
5 and from Iesus Christ which is a faithfull witnes, and first begotten of
the deed: & LORDE ouer ye kinges of the earth. Vnto him that loued vs and
wesshed vs fro synnes in his awne bloud,
6 and made vs kinges & Prestes vnto God his father, be glory, and
dominion for euer more. Amen.
7 Beholde, he commeth with cloudes, and all eyes shall se him: & they

8 I am Alpha and Omega, the begynninge and the endinge, sayteh ye LORDE
almighty, which is and which was and which is to come.
9 I Ihon youre brother and copanyon in tribulacion, and in the kyngdome
and paciece which is in Iesu Christe, was in the yle of Pathmos for the worde of
God, and for ye witnessynge of Iesu Christe.
10 I was in the sprete on a sondaye, and herde behynde me, a gret voyce,
as it had bene of a trompe,
11 sayenge: I am Alpha and Omega, the fyrst and ye laste. That thou seist,
write in a boke, and sende it vnto the cogregacions which are in Asia, vnto
Ephesus and vnto Smyrna, and vnto Pargamos, and vnto Thiatira, and vnto Sardis,
and vnto Philadelphia, and vnto Laodicia.
12 And I turned backe to se the voyce that spake to me. And whe I was
turned: I sawe seue golde candestyckes,
13 and in the myddes of the candelstyckes, one like vnto the sonne of man
clothed with a lynnin garmet downe to the ground, and gyrd aboute the brest with
a golden gyrdle.
14 His heed, and his heares were whyte, as whyte woll, & as snowe: and
his eyes were as a flamme of fyre:
15 and his fete like vnto brasse, as though they bret in a fornace: and
his voyce as the sounde of many waters.
16 And he had in his right honde seue starres. And out of his mouth went a
sharpe two edged swearde. And his face shone euen as the sonne in his strength.
17 And when I sawe him, I fell at his fete, euen as deed. And he layde his
right honde vpon me, sayenge vnto me: feare not. I am the fyrst, and the laste,
18 and am alyue, and was deed. And beholde, I am alyue for euer more and
haue the kayes of hell & of deth.
19 Wryte therfore the thinges which thou hast sene, and the thinges which
are, and ye thinges which shalbe fulfylled here after:
20 & the mistery of the seuen starres which thou sawest in my right
honde, and the seuen golden candelstickes. The seuen starres are the angels of
the seue congregacions: And the seuen candelstyckes which thou sawest, are the
1 Vnto the angell of the congregacion of Ephesus wryte: These thinges
sayth he that holdeth the seuen starres in his righthonde, and walketh in the
myddes of the seuen golde candelstickes:
2 I knowe thy workes, and thy labour, and thy pacience, & howe thou
cannest not forbeare them which are euell: and examinest them which saye they
are Apostles, and are not: & hast founde the lyars
3 and hast suffred. And hast paciece: and for my names sake hast laboured
and hast not faynted.
4 Neuerthelesse I haue somwhat agaynst the, for thou hast lefte thy fyrst loue.
5 Remember therfore fro whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the
fyrst workes. Or elles I wyl come vnto the shortly, and wil remoue thy
cadelstycke out of his place, excepte thou repent.
6 But this thou hast because thou hatest ye dedes of the Nicolaitans,
which dedes I also hate.
7 Let him yt hath eares, heare, what ye sprete saith vnto the
congregacions. To him that ouercommeth, will I geue to eate of the tree of life,
which is in the myddes of ye paradise of God.
8 And vnto the angell of the congregacion of Smyrna wryte: These thinges
saith he that is fyrst, and the last, which was deed, and is aliue:
9 I knowe thy workes and tribulacion and pouerte, but thou art ryche: And
I knowe the blaspheny of them which call them selues Iewes and are not: but are
the cogregacion of Sathan.
10 Feare none of tho thinges which thou shalt soffre. Beholde, ye deuell
shal cast of you in to preson, to tempte you, and ye shal haue tribulacion x.
dayes. Be faithfull vnto the deeth, and I wil geue ye a crowne of life.
11 Let him that hath ears, heare, what the sprete saith to the
congregacions: He that ouercometh, shal not be hurte of the seconde deeth.
12 And to the angell of the congregacion in Pergamos wryte: This sayth he
which hath the sharpe swearde with two edges:
13 I knowe thy workes, and where thou dwellest, euen where Sathans seat
is, and thou kepest my name, & hast not denyed my faith. And in my dayes
Antipas was a faithfull witnes of myne, which was slayne amonge you, where
14 But I haue a fewe thinges agaynst the: that thou hast there, the that
manyntayne the doctryne of Balaam, which taught in Balak, to put occasion of syn

ydoles, and to commyt fornicacion.
15 Euen so hast thou them that mayntayne ye doctryne of the Nicolaytans,
which thinge I hate.
16 But be couerted, or elles I wil come vnto the shortly, and wil fight
agaynste the with the swearde of my mouth.
17 Let him yt hath eares, heare, what the sprete saith vnto the
cogregacions: To him that ouercommeth, wil I geue to eate mana that is hyd, and
wil geue him a whyte stone, & in the stone a newe name wrytte, which no man
knoweth, sauinge he that receaueth it.
18 And vnto the angell of the cogregacion of Theatira write: This saith
the sonne of God, which hath his eyes lyke vnto a flame of fyre, whose fete are
19 I knowe thy workes and thy loue, seruice, and faith and thy pacience,
and thy dedes, which are mo at the last then at the firste
20 Not withstondinge I haue a feawe thinges agaynst the, that thou
sufferest that woman Iesabell (which called her selfe a prophetisse) to teache
and to deceaue my seruauntes, to make them committ fornicacion, and to eate
meates offered vp vnto ydoles.
21 And I gaue her space to repet of her fornicacion, and she repented not.
22 Beholde, I wil cast her into a bed, and them that commit fornicacion
with her, in to gret aduersite, excepte they turne from their dedes.
23 And I wil kyll her childre with deeth. And all the cogregacios shal
knowe, yt I am he which searcheth the reynes and hertes. And I wil geue vnto
euery one of you acordynge vnto youre workes.
24 Vnto you I saye, and vnto other of the of Thiatyra, as many as haue not
this lernynge and which haue not knowen the depnes of Sathan (as they saye) I
wil put vpo you none other burthen,
25 but yt which ye haue already. Holde fast tyll I come,
26 and whosoeuer ouercometh and kepeth my workes vnto ye ende, to him wil
I geue power ouer nacions,
27 and he shal rule them with a rodde of yron: and as the vessels of a
potter, shal he breake them to sheuers. Eue as I receaued of my father,
28 so wil I geue him ye mornynge starre.
29 Let him yt hath eares, heare, what the sprete sayth to the cogregacions.
1 And wryte vnto the angell of the congregacion off

knowe thy workes, thou hast a name that thou lyuest, and thou art deed.
2 Be awake, and strength the thinges which remayne, that are redy to dye.
For I haue not founde thy workes perfecte before God.
3 Remember therfore how thou hast receaued and hearde, and holde fast, and
repent. Yf thou shalt not watche, I wil come on the as a thefe, and thou shalt
not knowe what houre I wil come vpon ye
4 Thou hast a fewe names in
, which haue not defyled their garmentes: and they shal walke with me in whyte,
for they are worthy.
5 He that ouercommeth, shalbe clothed in whyte araye, and I wil not put
out his name out of the boke of life, and I wil cofesse his name before my
father, and before his angels.
6 Let him yt hath eares, heare, what the sprete sayth vnto the congregacions.
7 And wryte vnto ye angell of the cogregacio of

and noman shutteth, and shutteth and no man openeth.
8 I knowe thy workes. Beholde, I haue set before the an open doore, and no
man can shut it, for thou hast a lyttell strength and hast not denyed my name.
9 Beholde, I shal geue some of the congregacion of Sathan, which call them
selues Iewes and are not, but do lye: Beholde: I wil make them, that they shal
come & worshippe before thy fete: and shal knowe that I haue loued the.
10 Because thou hast kept the wordes of my pacience, therfore wil I kepe
the from the houre of temptacion, which will come vpon all the worlde, to tempte
them that dwell vpo the earth.
11 Beholde, I come shortly. Holde that which thou hast, that no ma take
awaye thy crowne.
12 Him that ouer commeth, will I make a pyllar in the temple of my God,
and he shal goo no more out. And I will wryte vpon him, the name of my God, and
the name of ye cite of my God, newe Ierusalem, which cometh downe out of heauen
from my God, and I will wryte vpo him my newe name.
13 Let him that hath eares, heare, what the sprete saith vnto the congregacions.
14 And vnto the angell of the cogregacion, which is in Laodicia wryte:
This sayth Amen the faithfull and true witnes, the begynnynge of ye creatures of

colde or hote.
16 So then because thou art bitwene bothe, and nether colde ner hote I
wyll spew the out off my mouth:
17 because thou saist thou art riche and incresyd with goodes and hast
nede of nothinge, and knowest not how thou art wretched & miserable, poore,
blynde, and nakyd.
18 I counsell the to bye of me golde tryed in the fyre, that thou mayste
be riche: and whyte rayment, that thou mayste be clothed, that thy fylthy
nakednes do not apere: anoynt thine eyes with eye salue, yt thou mayste se.
19 As many as I loue, I rebuke & chasten. Be feruent therfore and
20 Beholde, I stonde at the doore & knocke. Yf eny man heare my voyce
and vpen the dore, I wil come in vnto him and will suppe with him, & he with

as I ouercam and haue sytte with my father on his seate.
22 Let him that hath eares, heare, what the sprete saith vnto the
1 After this I loked, and beholde, a dore was open in heaue, and the
fyrste voyce which I harde, was as it were of a trompet talkinge with me, which
sayde: come vp hydder, and I wil shewe the thinges which must be fulfylled her
2 And immediatly I was in the sprete: & beholde, a seate was set in
heauen, and one sat on the seate.
3 And he that sat, was to loke vpon like vnto a iaspar stone, and a
sardyne stone: And there was a rayne bowe aboute the seate, in syght like to a
4 And aboute the seate were xxiiij. seates. And vpon the seates xxiiij.
elders syttinge clothed in whyte rayment, and had on their heades crownes of
5 And out of ye seate proceded lightnynges, and thundrynges, & voyces,
and there wer seuen lapes of fyre, burninge before the seate, which are the
seuen spretes of God.
6 And before the seate there was a see of glasse like vnto crystall, and
in the mydes off the seate, and rounde aboute the seate, were foure beastes full
of eyes before and behynde.
7 And the first beest was like a lion, the seconde beest like a calfe, and
the thyrde beest had a face as a man and the fourth beest was like a flyenge
8 And the foure beestes had eche one off them vj. wynges aboute him, and
they were full of eyes with in. And they had no rest daye nether night, sayenge:
holy, holy, holy, is the LORDE God almyghty, which was, and is, and is to come.
9 And when those beestes gaue glory and honour and thankes to him that sat
on the seate, which lyueth for euer and euer:
10 ye xxiiij. elders fell downe before him that sat on the trone, and
worshipped him yt lyueth for euer, and cast their crounes before ye trone,
11 thou art worthy LORDE to receaue glory, and honor, and power, for thou
hast created all thinges, and for thy willes sake they are, and were created.
1 And I sawe in the right hode of him, that sat in the trone, a boke
wrytten with in & on the backside, sealed with seue seales.
2 And I sawe a stroge angell preachinge with a loude voyce: Who is worthy
to open the boke, and to loose the seales therof?
3 And no ma in heaue ner in earth, nether vnder ye earth, was able to ope
ye boke, nether to loke thereon.
4 And I wepte moch, because no man was founde worthy to open and to rede
the boke, nether to loke thereon.
5 And one of the elders sayde vnto me: wepe not: Beholde, the lyon which
is off the trybe of Iuda, ye rote of Dauid, hath obtayned to ope the boke, and
to lowse the seue seales therof.
6 And I behelde, & lo, in the myddes of the seate, and of ye foure
beastes, and in the myddes of ye elders, stode a lambe as though he had bene
kylled, which had seuen hornes and seue eyes, which are the seue spretes of God,
sent in to all the worlde.
7 And he came and toke the boke out of the right hode of him that sat vpon
8 And when he had taken the boke, the foure beestes and the xxiiij. elders
fell downe before the lambe, hauinge harpes and golden vialles full of odoures
(which are ye prayers of the sayntes)
9 and they songe a newe songe saynge: thou art worthy to take the boke
& to ope the seales therof: for thou wast kylled, and hast redemed vs by thy
bloud, out of all kynreddes, and toges, and people, and nacions,
10 & hast made vs vnto or God, kynges and prestes, and we shal raygne
on ye earth.
11 And I behelde, and I herd the voyce of many angilles aboute the trone,
and aboute the beestes and ye elders, and I herde thousand thousandes,
12 sayenge with a loude voyce: Worthy is the lambe that was killed, to
receaue power, and riches & wissdome, and strength, and honoure and glory,
13 And all creatures, which are in heaue, & on the earth, & vnder
the earth, & in the see, & all yt are in the, herd I sayenge: blessinge,
honoure, glory, & power, be vnto him, yt sytteth vpo the seate, and vnto the
14 And the foure beestes saide: Ame. And ye xxiiij. elders fell vpon their
faces, and worshipped him that lyueth for euermore.
1 And I sawe when the labe opened one of the seales, & I herde one of
the foure beestes saye, as it wer the noyse off thonder: come and se.
2 And I sawe, and beholde there was a whyte horsse, and he yt sat on him
had a bowe, and a crowne was geuen vnto him, and he went forth conquerynge and
for to ouercome.
3 And whe he opened the seconde seale, I herde the seconde beeste saye:
come and se.
4 And there went out another horsse that was reed, & power was geuen
to him that sat there on, to take peace from the earth, and that they shulde
kyll one another. And there was geue vnto him a gret swearde.
5 And when he opened the thyrde seale, I herde the thyrde beeste saye:
come & se. And I behelde, and lo, a blacke horsse: and he that sate on him,
had a payre of balances in his honde.
6 And I herde a voyce in the myddes of the foure beastes saye: a measure
of whete for a peny, and thre measures of barly for a peny: and oyle and wyne se
thou hurte not.
7 And when he opened the fourth seale, I herde the voyce of the fourthe
beaste saye: come and se.
8 And I loked, and beholde a pale horsse, and his name that sat on him was
deeth, and hell folowed after him, & power was geue vnto them ouer the
fourthe parte of the earth, to kyll with swearde, and wt honger, and with deeth,
of the vermen of the earth.
9 And when he opened the fyfte seale, I sawe vnder the aultre, the soules
of them yt were kylled for the worde of God, and for ye testimony which they
10 and they cryed with a lowde voyce sayege: How loge tariest thou LORDE
holy and true, to iudge & to auenge oure bloude on them that dwell on the
11 And longe whyte garmentes were geuen vnto euery one of them. And it was
sayde vnto them, that they shulde reste for a lyttle season, vntyll the nomber
of their felowes, and brethre, and of them that shulde be killed as they were,
12 And I behelde when he opened the sixte seale, and loo, there was a
grett earthquake, and ye sonne was as blacke as sacke cloth made of heare. And
the mone wexed eue as bloude:
13 and the starres of heauen fell vnto the earth, euen as a fygge tree
castith from her her fygges, when she is shaken off a mighty wynde.
14 And heauen vanysshed awaye, as a scroll when it is rolled togedder. And
all mountayns and yles, were moued out of their places.
15 And the kynges of ye earth, and the grete men, and the riche men, and
the chefe captaynes, and the myghte men, and euery free man, hyd them selues in
dennes, and in rockes of ye hylles,
16 and sayde to the hylles, and rockes: fall on vs, and hyde vs from the
presence of him that sytteth on the seate, and from the wrath of the lambe,
17 for the grete daye of his wrath is come. And who can endure it?
1 And after that sawe I foure angels stode on ye foure corners of the
earth, holdinge ye foure wyndes of ye earth, yt ye wyndes shulde not blowe on ye
earth, nether on ye see, nether on eny tree.
2 And I sawe another angel ascende fro the rysinge of the sonne: which had
the seale of ye lyuinge God and he cryed with a loude voyce to the foure
angelles (to whom power was geuen to hurt the earth and the see)
3 sayenge: Hurt not the earth nether the see, nether the trees, till we
haue sealed the seruautes of oure God in their forheddes.
4 And I herde the nombre of them which were sealed, and there were sealed
an c. and xliiij. M. of all the trybes of the children of Israell.
5 Of ye trybe of Iuda were sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Ruben were
sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Gad were sealed xij. M.
6 Of the trybe of Asser were sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Neptalym were
sealed xij. M. Of ye trybe of Manasses were sealed xij. M.
7 Of the trybe of Symeon were sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Leui were
sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Isacar were sealed xij. M.
8 Of the trybe of Zabulon were sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Ioseph were
sealed xij. M. Of the trybe of Beniamin were sealed xij. thousande.
9 After this I behelde, and lo, a gret multitude (which no man coulde
nombre) of all nacions and people, and tonges, stode before the seate, and
before the lambe, clothed wt longe whyte garmetes, and palmes in their hondes,
10 and cryed with a loude voyce, sayenge: saluacion be asscribed to him yt
sytteth vpon the seate of oure God, and vnto the lambe.
11 And all the angels stode in the compase of the seate, and of the elders
and of the foure beastes, and fell before ye seat on their faces, and worshipped
12 sayenge, amen: Blessynge and glory, wissdome and thakes, and honour,
and power and might, be vnto oure God for euermore Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, sayenge vnto me: what are these which
are arayed in longe whyte garmetes, and whence cam they?
14 And I sayde vnto him: LORDE thou wotest. And he sayde vnto me: these
are they which cam out of gret tribulacion, and made their garmentes large, and
made the whyte in the bloude of the lambe:
15 therfore are they in the presence of the seate of God and serue him
daye and night in his temple, and he that sytteth in the seate, wyll dwell
16 They shal honger nomore nether thyrst, nether shal the sonne lyght on
them, nether eny heate:
17 For the
which is in the myddes of the seate, shal fede them, and shal leade them vnto
fountaynes of lyuynge water, and God shal wype awaye all teares from their eyes.
1 And when he had opened the seuenth seale, there was silece in heauen
aboute the space of halfe an houre.
2 And I sawe seue angels stondinge before God, and to them were geuen
3 And another angell cam and stode before the aultre, hauynge a golden
senser, and moch of odoures was geuen vnto him, that he shulde offre of the
prayers of all sayntes vpon the golden aultre, which was before the seate.
4 And the smoke of the odoures which came of the prayers of all sayntes,
ascended vppe before God out of the angelles honde.
5 And the angell toke the senser, and fylled it with fyre of the aultre,
and caste it into the earth, and voyces were made, and thodrynges and
lightnynges, and earthquake.
6 And the seuen angels which had the seuen trompettes, prepared them
selues to blowe.
7 The first angel blewe, and there was made hayle and fyre, which were
myngled with bloud, & they were cast in to the earth: and the thyrd parte of
trees was burnt, and all grene
8 And the seconde angell blewe: and as it were a greate mountayne burnynge
with fyre was cast in to the see, and the thyrde parte of the see turned to
9 and the thyrde parte of the creatures which had life, dyed, and the
thyrde part of shippes were destroyed.
10 And the thyrde angell blewe, and there fell a greate starre from heauen,
burnynge as it were a lampe, and it fell in to the thyrde parte of the ryuers,
and in to fountaynes of waters,
11 and the name of the starre is called Wormwod. And the thyrde parte of
the waters was turned to Wormwod. And many men dyed of the waters, because they
were made bytter.
12 And the fourth angel blew, and the thyrde parte of ye Sonne was smytten,
and ye thyrde parte of the mone, & the thyrde parte of starres: so that the
thyrde parte of them was darckned. And the daye was smytte, that the thyrde
parte of it shulde not shyne, and lyke wyse the nyght.
13 And I behelde, and herde an angel flyenge thorowe the myddes of heaue,
and sayege with a lowde voyce: Wo, wo, wo to the inhabiters of the earth,
because of the voyces to come of the trompe of the thre angels which were yet to
1 And the fyfte angell blewe, & I sawe a starre fall from heaue vnto
ye earth. And to him was geue the kaye of the bottomlesse pytt.
2 And he opened the bottomlesse pytt, and there arose the smoke of a
greate fornace. And the Sonne, and ye ayer were darkned by the reason of the
smoke of the pytt.
3 And there came out of the smoke locustes vpon the earth: and vnto the
was geuen power as the scorpions of the earth haue power.
4 And it was sayde vnto them, that they shulde not hurt the grasse of the
earth: nether eny grene thinge: nether eny tre: but onely those men which haue
not the seale in their forhedes,
5 and to them was comaunded, that they shulde not kyll the, but that they
shulde be vexed fyue monethes, and their payne was as the payne that cometh of a
scorpion, when he hath stonge a man.
6 And in those dayes shal me seke deeth, and shal not fynde it: and shal
desyre to dye, and death shal flye from them.
7 And the similitude of the locustes was lyke vnto horses prepared vnto
battayll, and on their heades were as it were crownes, lyke vnto golde: and
their faces were as it had bene the faces of men.
8 And they had heere as the heere of wemen. And their tethe were as the
9 And they had habbergions, as it were habbergions of yron. And the sounde
of their wynges, was as ye sounde of charettes whe many horsses runne together
10 And they had tayles lyke vnto scorpions, and there were stynges in
their tayles. And their power was to hurt me fyue monethes.
11 And they had a kinge ouer them, which is the angel of the bottomlesse
pyt, whose name in the hebrew tonge, is Abadon: but in the greke tonge, Apollion.
12 One wo is past, and beholde two woes come yet after this.
13 And the sixte angel blewe, and I herde a voyce from the foure corners
of the golden aultre which is before God,
14 sayenge to the sixte angel, which had the trompe: Lowse the foure
angels, which are bounde in the greate ryuer Eufrates.
15 And ye foure angels were lowsed, which were prepared for an houre, for
a daye, for a moneth, and for a yeare, for to slee the thyrde parte of men.
16 And the nombre of horsmen of warre, were twenty tymes x M. And I herde
ye nombre of them.
17 And thus I sawe the horses in a vision, and them that sat on the
hauynge fyry habbergions of a yalowe and brymstony color, and the heades of ye
horses werre as the heades of lyons. And out of their mouthes went forth fyre,
and smoke, and brymstone.
18 And of these thre was the thirde parte of men kylled: that is to saye,
of fyre, smoke, and brymstone, which proceded out of the mouthes of the:
19 For their power was in their mouthes and in their tayles: for their
tayles were like vnto serpetes, and had heades, and with the they dyd hurt:
20 And the remnaunt of the me which were not kylled by these plages,
repeted not of the dedes of their hondes, yt they shulde not worshippe deuels,
and ymages of golde, and syluer, and brasse, & stone, and of wod, which
nether can se, nether heare, nether go.
21 Also they repented not of their murthur, and of their witchcraft,
nether of their whordome, nether of their thefte.
1 And I sawe another mightye angell come doune fro heauen, clothed with a
cloude, and the rayne bowe vpon his heed. And his face as it were ye Sonne, and
his fete as it were pyllars of fyre:
2 and he had in his honde a lytell boke opyn: and he put his right fote
vpon ye see, and his lifte fote on ye earth.
3 And cryed with a lowde voyce, as when a
roreth. And when he had cryed, seue thondres spake their voyces.
4 And when the seue thodres had spoke their voyces, I was aboute to wryte.
And I herde a voyce from heauen sayenge vnto me: seale vp those thinges which
the seuen thondres spake, and wryte them not.
5 And the angel which I sawe stonde vpo the see, and vpon the earth,
lifte vppe his honde to heauen,
6 and swore by him that liueth for euermore, which created heauen, and
the thinges that there in are, and ye see, and the thinges which are therin:
that there shalbe nomore tyme:
7 but in the dayes of the voyce of the seueth angel, when he shal begynne
to blowe, the mistery of God shalbe fynisshed, as he preached by his seruauntes
8 And the voyce which I herde from heaue, spake vnto me agayne, and sayde:
go and take the lytle boke which is open in the honde of the angel, which
stondeth vpo the see, and vpon the earth.
9 And I went vnto the angel, and sayde vnto him: geue me the lytle boke.
And he sayde vnto me: Take it, and eate it vp, and it shal make thy belly bytter,
but it shalbe in thy mouth as swete as hony.
10 And I toke the lytle boke out of his honde, and ate it vp, and it was
in my mouth as swete as hony, and as sone as I had eaten it, my belly was bytter.
11 And he sayde vnto me: thou muste prophesy agayne vnto the people, and
to the Heythen, and tonges, and to many kynges.
1 And there was geuen me a rede lyke vnto a rodd, and it was sayde vnto
me: Ryse and mete the teple of God, and the aultre, and them that worshippe
2 and the quyre which is within the temple, cast out, and mete it not:
for it is geuen vnto the Gentyles, and ye holy cite shal they treade vnderfote
3 And I wil geue power vnto my two wytnesses, and they shal prophesy .M.ijc.
and lx. dayes clothed in sacke cloth.
4 These are two olyue trees, and two candelstyckes, stondinge before the
God of the earth.
5 And if eny man wil hurt them, fyre shal procede out of their mouthes,
and consume their enemyes. And yf eny ma wil hurt the, this wyse muste he be
6 These haue power to shut heauen, that it rayne not in the dayes of
their prophesyinge: and haue power ouer waters, to turne them to bloud, and to
smyte the earth with all maner plages, as often as they will.
7 And when they haue fynisshed their testimony, the beest that cam out of
the bottomlesse pytt, shal make warre agaynst the, and shal ouer come them, and
8 And their bodies shal lye in the stretes of the greate cite, which
spiritually is called zodom and Egypte, where oure LORDE is crucified.
9 And some of the people and kynredes, and tonges, & of the nacios,
shal se their bodies, thre dayes, and an halfe, and shal not suffre their bodies
to be put in graues.
10 And they that dwell vpo the earth, shal reioyce ouer them and be glad,
and shal send giftes one to another: for these two prophetes vexed them that
dwelt on the earth.
11 And after thre dayes and an halfe the sprete of life from God, entred
in to them. And they stode vp vpon their fete: & greate feare came vpon them
which sawe them.
12 And they herde a greate voyce from heaue, sayenge vnto them: Come vp
hidder. And they ascended vp in to heaue in a cloude, and their enemyes sawe
13 And the same houre was there a greate earthquake, & the tenth
parte of the cite fell, and in the earthquake were slayne names of men seuen M.
and the remnaunt were feared, and gaue glory to God of heauen.
14 The seconde wo is past, and beholde, the thyrd wo wyl come anone.
15 And the seuenth angel blewe, and ther were made greate voyces in
heauen, sayege: the kyngdoms of this worlde are oure LORDES and his Christes,
and he shal reigne for eurmore.
16 And the foure and twentye Elders, which sat before God on their seatts,
fell vpon their faces, and worshipped God
17 sayenge: we geue the thankes LORDE God allmyghte: which art and wast,
and art to come, for thou hast receaued thy greate might, and hast raygned.
18 And the Heythen were angry, & thy wrath is come, and the tyme of
the deed that they shulde be iudged, and that thou shuldest geue rewarde vnto
thy seruautes the prophettes and saynctes, and to the that feare thy name, small
& greate: and shuldest destroye them which destroye the earth.
19 And the
was opened in heauen, and there was sene in his temple the arcke of his
testament: and there folowed lightnynges, and voyces, and thondrynges and earth
quake, and a greate hayle.
1 And there appeared a greate token in heauen. A woman clothed with the
Sonne, and the mone vnder her fete, and vpon her heed a crowne of twolue starres.
2 And she was with childe, and cryed trauaillinge in byrth, and payned
redy to be delyuered.
3 And there appeared another token in heauen, and beholde a greate reed
dragon, hauinge seuen heades, and ten hornes and seue crownes vpo his heades:
4 and his tayle drue the thyrde parte of the starres, and cast them to
the earth. And the dragon stode before the woma, which was ready to be delyuered:
for to devoure her childe as sone as it were borne.
5 And she brought forth a man childe, which shulde rule all nacions with
a rod of yron. And her sonne was taken vp vnto God, and to his seate.
6 And the woman fled in to wyldernes, where she had a place prepared off
God, that they shulde fede her there a M.ij.C. and lx. dayes.
7 And there was a greate batayll in heaue Michael and his angels foughte
with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 and preuayled not, nether was their place founde eny more in heauen.
9 And the greate dragon that olde serpent (called the deuell and Sathanas)
was cast out. Which disceaued all the worlde. And he was cast in to the earth,
and his angelles were cast out with him also.
10 And I harde a lowde voyce, which sayde in heauen: Now is saluacion,
and strength and the kyngdome become oure Gods, and ye power his Christes: For
he is cast downe, which accused them before God daye and night.
11 And they ouercame him by the bloude of the lambe, and by the worde of
their testimony, and they loued not their lyues vnto the deeth.
12 Therfore reioyce ye heauens, and ye that dwell in them. Wo to the
inhabiters of the earth, and of the see: for the deuell is come downe vnto you,
which hath greate wrath, because he knoweth, that he hath but a short tyme.
13 And when the dragon sawe, that he was cast vnto the earth, he
persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man childe.
14 And to the woman were geue two wynges of a greate egle that she might
flye in to the wyldernes, in to her place, where she is norysshed for a tyme,
two tymes, and halffe a tyme, from the presence of the serpet.
15 And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woma, as it had
bene a ryuer, that he might cause her to be caught of ye floud.
16 And the earth holpe the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and
swalowed vp the ryuer which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woma: and went and made warre with
the remnaunt of hyr sede, which kepe the comaundementes of God, and haue the
testimony of Iesus Christ. And I stode on the see sonde.
1 And I sawe a beest rise out of the see, hauinge seuen heades, and x.
hornes, and vpon his hornes x. crownes, and vpo his heed, the names of
2 And the beest which I sawe was lyke a catt of the mountayne, and his
fete were as the fete of a bear, and his mouth as the mouthe of a
. And ye drago gaue him his power and his seate, and greate auctorite:
3 and I sawe one of his heades as it were wounded to death, and his dedly
wounde was healed. And all the worlde wodred at the beest,
4 and they worshipped the dragon which gaue power vnto the beest, and
they worshipped the beest, sayenge: who is like vnto the beest? who is able to
warre with him?
5 And there was geuen vnto him a mouth to speake greate thinges &
blasphemies, and power was geuen vnto him, to do xlij. monethes.
6 And he opened his mouth vnto blasphemy agaynst God, to blaspheme his
name, and his tabernacle and them that dwell in heauen.
7 And it was geuen vnto him to make warre with the sayntes, and to
ouercome them. And power was geuen him ouer all kynred, tonge, and nacion:
8 and all that dwell vpon the earth worshipt him: whose names are not
wrytten in the boke of life of the lambe, which was kylled from the beginnynge
of the worlde.
9 Yf eny man haue an eare, let him heare.
10 He that leadeth in to captiuite, shal go in to captiuite: he that
killeth with a swearde, must be killed with ye swearde. Heare is the pacience,
and the faith of the saynctes.
11 And I behelde another beest commynge vp out of the earth, and he had
two hornes like a lambe, and he spake as dyd the drago.
12 And he dyd all that the first beest coulde do in his presence, and he
caused the earth, and them which dwell therin, to worshippe the fyrst beest,
whose deedly woude was healed.
13 And he dyd greate wonders, so that he made fyre come downe from heaue
in the sight of men.
14 And deceaued them that dwelt on the earth by ye meanes of those signes
which he had power to do in the sight of the beest, sayenge to them that dwelt
on the earth: that they shulde make an ymage vnto the beest, which had the
wounde of a swearde and dyd liue.
15 And he had power to geue a sprete vnto the ymage of the beest, and
that the ymage of the beest shulde speake, and shulde cause, that as many as
wolde not worshippe the ymage of the beest, shulde be kylled.
16 And he made all bothe smale and greate, ryche and poore, fre and bond,
to receaue a marke in their right hondes, or in their forheades.
17 And that no man might by or sell, saue he yt had ye marke, or the name
of the beest, ether the nombre of his name.
18 Here is wissdome. Let him that hath wyt, count the nombre of the beest.
For it is the nombre of a man, and his nombre is sixe hondred, thre score and
1 And I loked, and lo, a lambe stode on the mout Syon, and with him .C.
and xliiij. thousande hauynge his fathers name wrytten in their forheades.
2 And I herde a voyce from heauen, as the sounde of many waters, and as
the voyce of a greate thondre. And the voyce that I herde, was as the harpers
that playe vpon their harpers.
3 And they songe as it were a newe songe, before the seate, & before
ye foure beestes, and the elders, and no man coulde learne yt songe, but the
hondred and xliiij.M. which were redemed from the earth.
4 These are they, which were not defyled with wemen, for they are virgyns.
These folowe the lambe whither soeuer he goeth. These were redemed from men,
beynge the fyrst frutes vnto God and to the lambe,
5 and in their mouthes was founde no gyle. For they are withoute spot
before the trone of God.
6 And I sawe an angell flye in the myddes of heauen hauinge an
euerlastinge Gospell, to preache vnto them that syt and dwell on the earth, and
to all nacions, kinreddes, and toges and people,
7 sayege with a lowde voyce: Feare God, and geue honour to him, for the
houre of his iudgement is come: and worshippe him that made heauen and earth,
and the see, and the fountaynes off water.
8 And there folowed another angell, sayenge: She is fallen, she is
fallen: eue Babilon that greate cite, for she made all nacions drynke off the
wyne off hyr whordome.
9 And the thyrde angel folowed the, sayenge with a loude voyce: Yf eny
man worshippe the beest and his ymage, and receaue his marke in his forhed, or
on his honde,
10 the same shall drynke of the wyne of the wrath of God, which is powred
in the cuppe of his wrath. And he shalbe punysshed in fyre and brymstone, before
the holy Angels, and before the lambe.
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth vp euermore. And they haue no
rest daye ner nyght, which worshippe the beast and his ymage, and whosoeuer
receaueth the prynt of his name.
12 Here is the pacience of sayntes. Heare are they that kepe the
commaundementes and the faith off Iesu.
13 And I herde a voyce from heauen, sayenge vnto me: wryte: Blessed are
ye deed, which here after dye in the LORDE. Yee the sprete sayeth, that they
rest from their laboures, for their workes folowe them.
14 And I loked and beholde, a whyte cloude, and vpo ye cloude one
syttynge like vnto the sonne of man, hauinge on his heed a golden crowne, and in
his hode a sharpe sykle.
15 And another angell came out of the temple, cryenge with a loude voyce
to him that sat on the cloude: Thruste in thy sycle and reepe: for the tyme is
come to reepe, for the corne of the earth is rype.
16 And he that sat on ye cloude thrust in his sykle on the earth, and the
earth was reeped.
17 And another angell came out of the temple, which is in heauen, hauinge
also a sharpe sykle.
18 And another angel came out from the aultre, which had power ouer fyre,
and cryed with a loude crye vnto hym that had the sharpe syckle, and sayde:
Thruste in thy sharpe syckle, and gather the clusters of ye earth, for hir
grapes are rype.
19 And the angell thrust in his syckle on the erthe, and cut downe the
grapes of the vynyarde of the earth, and cast them in to the greate wynefat of
ye wrath of God:
20 & the wynefat was trodden without the cite, and bloude came out of
the fat, euen vnto the horsse brydles by the space of a thousande and sixe
1 And I sawe another signe in heuen grett & mervellous .vii. angells
havinge the seven laste plages, for in the is fulfylled the wrath of god.
2 And I sawe as it were a glassye see, mingled with fyre, and them that
had gotten victory of the beest, and of his ymage, and of his marke, and of the
nombre of his name, stonde on the glassye see, hauinge ye harpes of God:
3 and they songe the songe of Moses the seruaunt of God, and the songe of
the lambe, saynge: Greate and maruellous are thy workes LORDE God almyghty, iust
and true are thy wayes, thou kynge of sayntes.
4 Who shal not feare the O LORDE and gloryfie thy name? For thou only art
holy, for all getiles shall come and worshippe before the, for thy iudgmentes
are made manyfest.
5 And after that, I loked, and beholde, the temple of the Tabernacle of
testimony was open in heauen,
6 and the seuen angelles came out of the temple, which had the seuen
plages, clothed in pure and bryght lynne, and hauynge their brestes gyrded with
7 And one of the foure beestes gaue vnto the seuen angelles seuen golden
vialles, full of the wrath of God which liueth for euermore.
8 And the temple was full of smoke for the glory off God, and for his
power, and no man was able to entre in to the temple, tyll the seuen plages of
the seue angels were fulfilled.
1 And I herde a greate voyce out of the temple, sayenge to the seuen
angels: go youre wayes, poure out youre vialles of wrath vpon the earth.
2 And the fyrst went, and poured out his viall vpon the earth, and there
fell a noysom & a sore botch vpon the men which had the marke of the beest,
and vpon them that worshipped his ymage.
3 And the seconde angel shed out his viall vpo the see, and it turned as
it were in to the bloud of a deed man: and euery lyuinge thinge dyed in the see,
4 And the thyrde angel shed out his vyall vpon the ryuers and fountaynes
of waters, and they turned to bloude.
5 And I herde an angel saye: LORDE which art and wast, thou art righteous
and holy, because thou hast geue soche iudgmentes,
6 for they shed the bloude of sayntes, and prophetes, and therfore hast
thou geuen them bloude to drynke: for they are worthy.
7 And I herde another angell out of the aulter, saye: euen so LORDE God
almighty, true and righteous are thy iudgmentes.
8 And the fourth angell poured out his viall on the Sonne, and power was
geuen vnto him to vexe men with heate of fyre.
9 And the men raged in gret heate, and spake euell of the name of God,
which had power ouer those plages, and they repented not, to geue him glory.
10 And the fifte angell poured out his vyall vpon the seate of the beest,
and his kyngdome wexed derke, and they gnewe their tonges for sorowe,
11 and blasphemed the God of heaue for sorowe, and payne of their sores,
and repented not of their dedes.
12 And the sixte angell poured out his vyall vpon the gret ryuer
, and the water dryed vp, that the waye of the kynges of the Easte shulde be
13 And I sawe thre vncleane spretes kike frogges come out of the mouth of
the dragon, and out off the mouth off the beest, and out off the mouth of the
14 For they are the spretes of deuels workynge myracles, to go out vnto
the kynges of the earth and of the whole worlde, to gaddre them to the battayle
of that gret daye of God allmighty.
15 Beholde, I come as a thefe. Happy is he that watcheth and kepeth his
garmentes, lest he be founde naked, and men se his filthynes.
16 And he gaddered them togedder in to a place, called in the hebrue tonge,
17 And the seuenth angell poured out his viall in to the ayre. And there
came a greate voyce out of heauen from the seate, sayenge: It is done.
18 And there folowed voyces, thondringes, and lightnynges, and there was
a gret earthquake, soch as was not sence me were vpon the earth, so myghty an
earthquake and so greate.
19 And the greate cite was deuyded in to thre parties. And the cities of
nacions fell. And greate Babilon came in remembraunce before God, to geue vnto
hyr the cuppe of wyne of the fearcenes of his wrath.
20 And euery yle fled awaye, and the mountaynes were not founde.
21 And there fell a greate hayle, as it had bene talentes, out of heaue
vpon the men, and the men blasphemed God, because of the plage of the hayle, for
it was greate, and the plage of it sore.
1 And there cam one of the seue angels, which had the seuen vialles, and
talked with me, sayenge vnto me: Come, I wil shewe the the iugdment of the
greate whore, that sytteth vpon many waters,
2 with whom the kynges of the earth haue commytted whordome, and the
inhabiters of the earth are dronken with the wyne of her fornicacion.
3 And he caryed me awaye into the wildernes in ye sprete. And I sawe a
woman syt vpon a rose colored beest, full of names of blasphemie, which had seue
heades & ten hornes.
4 And ye woman was arayed in purple and rose color, and decked with golde,
precious stone, and pearles, and had a cupp of golde in her honde, full of
abhominacions, and fylthines of her wordome.
5 And in her forhed was a name wrytte, a mistery; greate Babilon the
mother of whordome, and abominacios of the earth.
6 And I sawe the wyfe dronke with the bloude of sayntes, and with the
bloud of the witnesses of Iesu. And when I sawe her, I wondred with greate
7 And the angell sayde vnto me: wherfore meruayllest thou? I wyl shewe
the the mistery of the woman, and of the beest that beerith her, which hath
seuen heades, and ten hornes.
8 The beest that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascende out of
the bottomlesse pytt, and shal go in to perdicion, and they that dwell on the
earth shal wondre (whose names are not wrytten in the boke of life from the
begynnynge of the worlde) when they beholde the beest that was, and is not.
9 And here is a mynde, that hath wissdome. The seuen heades are seuen
mountanes, on which the woman sytteth:
10 they are also seuen kynges. Fyue are fallen, and one is, and the other
is not yet come. When he commeth, he muste continue a space.
11 And the beest that was, and is not, is eue the eyght, and is of the
seuen, and shal go in to destruccion.
12 And ye ten hornes which thou sawest, are ten kynges, which haue not
yet receaued the kyngdome, but shal receaue power as kynges at one houre with ye
13 These haue one mynde, and shal geue their power and stregth vnto ye beeste.
14 These shal fyght with the lambe, and the
shal ouercome them: For he is LORDE of all lordes, and kinge of all kinges: and
they that are on his syde, are called, and chosen and faithfull.
15 And he saide vnto me: The waters which thou sawest, where ye whore
sytteth, are people, and folke, and nacions, and tonges.
16 And the ten hornes, which thou sawest vpon the beest, are they that
shal hate the whore, and shal make her desolate, and naked, and shall eate hir
flesshe, and burne her with fyre.
17 For God hath put in their hertes, to fulfill his wyll, and to do with
one consent, for to geue hir kyngdome vnto the beest, vntill the wordes of God
18 And the woma which thou sawest, is that greate cite, which raigneth
ouer the kynges of the earth.
1 And after that I sawe another angel come downe fro heaue, hauinge
greate power, and ye earth was lyghtned with his bryghtnes.
2 And he cryed mightely with a stronge voyce, sayenge: She is fallen, she
is fallen, euen greate Babilon, and is become the habitacion of deuels, and ye
holde of all fowle spretes, and a cage of all vncleane and hatefull byrdes:
3 for all nacios haue dronken of the wyne of the wrath of her whordome.
And the kynges of the earth haue committed fornicacion with her, and her
marchauntes are wexed ryche of the abundaunce of her pleasures.
4 And I herde another voyce from heauen saye: come awaye from her my
people, that ye be not partakers of her synnes, lest ye receaue of her plages.
5 For her synnes are gone vp to heauen, and the LORDE hath remembred her
6 Rewarde her euen as she rewarded you, and geue her dubble acordinge to
her workes. And poure in dubble to her in the same cuppe, which she fylled vnto
7 And as moche as she gloryfied her selfe and lyued wantanly, so moch
poure ye in for her of punysshmet, and sorowe, for she sayeth in her herte: I
syt beinge a quene, and am no wyddowe, and shall se no sorowe.
8 Therfore shal her plages come at one daye, death, and sorowe, and
honger, and she shalbe bret with fyre: for stronge is the LORDE God which shal
9 And the kynges of the earth shal bewepe her and wayle ouer her, which
haue committed fornicacion and lyued wantanly with her, when they shal se the
smoke of her burnynge,
10 and shal stonde a farre of for feare of her punysshment, sayenge:
Alas, Alas, that greate cite Babylon, that mighty cite: For at one houre is thy
11 And the marchauntes off the earth shall wepe and wayle in them selues,
because no man will bye their ware eny more,
12 the ware of golde, and syluer, and of precious stones, off pearle,
& sylke, and purple, and skarlet, & all Thynen wod, and all manner
vessels of yuery, and all manner vessels of most precious wod, and of brasse,
and of yron,
13 & synomom and odours, and oyntmentes, and frankynsence, and wyne,
and oyle, and fyne floure, and wheate, and catell, and shepe, and horses, and
charrettes, and bodies and soules of men.
14 And the apples that thy soule lusted after, are departed from the. And
all thinges which were deyntie, and had in pryce, are departed from the, and
thou shalt fynde them no more.
15 The marchauntes of these thinges which were wexed ryche by her, shall
stonde afarre of for feare of the punysshment of her, wepynge and waylinge,
16 and sayenge: alas alas, that greate cite, that was clothed in sylke,
and purple, and scarlet, and decked with golde, and precious stone, and pearles:
17 for at one houre so greate ryches is come to naught. And euery shippe
gouerner, and all they that occupie shippes, and shippmen which worke in the
see, stode a farre of,
18 and cryed, when they sawe the smoke of her burnynge, and sayde: what
cite is like vnto this greate cite?
19 And they cast dust on their heades, and cryed wepynge, and waylinge,
and sayde: Alas, Alas the greate cite, wherin were made ryche all that had
shippes in the see, by the reason of her wares: for at one houre is she made
20 Reioyce ouer her thou heaue, and ye holy Apostles, and prophetes: for
God hath geuen youre iudgmet on her.
21 And a mighty angell toke vp a greate stone lyke a mylstone, and cast
it in to the see, sayenge: with suche violece shal that greate cite Babylon be
cast, and shalbe founde no more.
22 And the voyce of harpers, and musicions, and of pypers, and
trompetters, shalbe herde no more in the: and no craftes man (of what soeuer
craft he be) shalbe founde eny more in the: and the sounde of a myll shalbe
herde no more in the:
23 and the voyce of the brydegrome and of the bryde, shalbe herde no more
in the for thy marchauntes were prynces of the earth. And with thyne inchautment
were deceaued all nacions:
24 and in her was founde the bloude of the prophetes, and of the sayntes,
and of all that were slayne vpo the earth.
1 And after that, I herde the voyce of moch people in heauen, sayenge:
Alleluia. Saluacion and glory and honour, and power be ascribed to the LORDE or
2 for true and righteous are his iudgmentes, because he hath iudged the
greate whore (which did corrupt ye earth with her fornicacion) and hath auenged
the bloud of his seruautes of her hond.
3 And agayne they sayde: Alleluia. And smoke rose vp for euermore.
4 And ye xxiiij: elders, & the foure beestes fell downe, and
worshipped God that sat on the seate, sayenge: Amen: Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the seate, sayenge: prayse or LORDE God all ye
that are his seruautes, & ye that feare him both small and greate.
6 And I herde the voyce of moch people, eue as ye voyce of many waters,
& as ye voyce of stronge thondrynges, sayenge: Alleluia, for God omnipotent
7 Let vs be glad and reioyce, and geue honour to him: for the mariage of
is come, and his wife made her selfe ready.
8 And to her was graunted, that she shulde be arayed with pure and goodly
sylke. (As for the sylke, it is the rightewesnes of sayntes.)
9 And he sayde vnto me: Blessed are they which are called vnto the Lambes
supper. And he sayde vnto me: these are the true sayenges of God.
10 And I fell at his fete, to worshippe him. And he sayde vnto me: Se
thou do it not. For I am thy felowe seruaunt, and one of thy brethren, and of
them that haue the testimony of Iesus. Worshippe God. For the testimony of Iesus
is ye sprete of prophesy.
11 And I sawe heaue open, & beholde, a whyte horsse and he yt sat
vpon him, was called faithfull and true, & in rightewesnes dyd iudge and
12 His eyes were as a flame of fyre, and on his heade were many crounes:
& he had a name wrytten, that noman knewe but him selfe.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipt in bloude, and his name is
called, ye worde of God.
14 And ye warriers which were in heauen, folowed him vpon whyte horsses,
clothed with whyte and pure sylke
15 and out of his mouthe wente a sharppe swerde, that with it he shulde
smyte the Heithen: And he shall rule them with a rodde of yron, and he trode the
wynefatte of the fearcenesse and wrath of allmightye God.
16 And hath on his vesture and on his thyghe a name wrytten: Kynge of all
kinges, and LORDE of all lordes.
17 And I sawe an angell stonde in the Sonne, and he cryed with a lowde
voyce, sayenge to all the fowles that flye by the myddes vnder the heauen: Come
and gaddre youre selues togedder vnto the supper of the gret God,
18 that ye maye eate the flesshe of kynges, and of hye captaynes, and the
flesshe of mighty men, and the flesshe of horsses, and of the that syt on them,
and the flesshe of all free men and bond men, both of small and greate.
19 And I sawe the beeste and the kynges of ye earth, and their warriers
gadred togedder, to make battayle agaynste him that sat vpon the horsse, and
agaynst his sowdiers.
20 And the beeste was taken, and with him that false prophet that wrought
myracles before him, with which he disceaued them that receaued the beestes
marke, and them that worsshipped his ymage. These both were cast in to a ponde
of fyre burnynge wt brymstone:
21 and the remnaunte were slayne with the swearde of him that sat vpon
the horsse, which swearde proceded out of his mouth, and all the foules were
filled with their flesshe.
1 And I sawe an angell come downe from heauen, hauinge the keye of the
bottomlesse pyt, and a gret chayne in his honde.
2 And he toke the dragon that olde serpent (which is the deuell and
Satanas) and he bounde him a thousand yeares:
3 and cast him in to the bottomlesse pyt, and he bounde him, and set a
seale on him, that he shuld disceaue the people nomoare, tyll the thousand
yeares were fulfilled. And after that muste he be lowsed for a littell season.
4 And I sawe seates, and they sat vpon them, and the iudgement was geuen
vnto them: and I sawe the soules of them that were beheaded for the witnes of
Iesu, and for the worde of God: which had not worshipped the beest, nether his
ymage, nether had taken his marke vpon their forheades, or on their hondes: and
they lyued, and raygned with Christ a thousand yeare:
5 but the other of the deed men lyued not agayne, vntill the thousand
yeare were fynisshed. This is that fyrst resurreccion.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath parte in the fyrst resurreccion. On
soch hath the seconde deeth no power, but they shalbe the prestes of God and of
Christ, and shall raygne with him a thousand yeare.
7 And when the thousand yeares are expyred, Sathan shalbe lowsed out of
8 and shal go out to deceaue the people which are in the foure quarters
of the earth. Gog and Magog, to gadder them togedder to batayle, whose nombre is
as the sonde off the see:
9 and they went vp on the playne of the earth, and compased the tentes of
the sayntes aboute, and the beloued cite. And fyre cam doune from God out of
heauen, and deuoured them:
10 and the deuell that disceaued them, was cast in to a lake of fyre and
brymstone, where the beest and the false prophet were, and shalbe tormented daye
and night for euermore.
11 And I sawe a gret whyte seate, and him that sat on it, from whose face
fled awaye both the earth and heauen, and their place was nomore founde.
12 And I sawe the deed, both gret and small stonde before God: And the
bokes were opened, and another boke was opened, which is (the boke) of life, and
the deed were iudged of tho thinges which were wrytten in the bokes accordinge
to their dedes:
13 and the see gaue vp her deed, which were in her, and deeth and hell
delyuered vp the deed, which were in them: and they were iudged euery man
accordynge to his dedes.
14 And deth and hell were cast in to the lake of fyre. This is that
15 And whosoeuer was not founde wrytten in the boke off life, was cast in
to the lake of fyre.
1 And I sawe a newe heauen and a newe earth. For the fyrst heauen, and
the fyrst earth were vanisshed awaye, and there was nomore See.
2 And I Ihon sawe that holy cite newe Ierusalem come downe from God out
of heauen, prepared as a bryde garnisshed for hyr hussband.
3 And I herde a greate voyce from the seate, sayenge: beholde, the
tabernacle of God is with men, and he wil dwell with them. And they shalbe his
people, and God himselfe shalbe with the, and shalbe their God.
4 And God shal wipe awaye all teares from their eyes. And there shalbe
nomore deeth, nether sorowe, nether shal there be eny more payne, for ye olde
thinges are gone.
5 And he that sat vpon the seate, sayde: Beholde, I make all thinges newe.
And he sayde vnto me: wryte for these wordes are faithfull and true,
6 And he sayde vnto me: it is done I am Alpha and Omega, the begynnynge,
and the ende. I wil geue to him that is a thyrst of the well of the water of
7 He that ouercommeth, shal inheret all thinges I wil be his God, and he
shalbe my sonne.
8 But the fearefull and vnbeleuynge, and the abhominable, and murthurers,
and whormongers, and sorcerers, and ydolaters, & all lyars, shal haue their
parte in the lake, that burneth with fyre and brymstone, which is the seconde
9 And there came vnto me one of the seuen angels, which had the seuen
vials full of the seuen last plages: and talked with me, sayenge: come hydder, I
wil shewe the the bryde, ye labes wyfe.
10 And he caryed me awaye in ye sprete to a greate and an hye moutayne,
and he shewed me the greate cite, holy Ierusale descendinge out of heauen from
11 hauynge the brightnes of God. And her shynynge was lyke vnto a stone
most precious, euen a Iaspar cleare as cristall:
12 & had greate and hye walles, and had twolue gates, and at ye gates
twolue angels: and names wrytten, which are the twolue trybes of Israel:
13 on the est parte thre gates, and on the north syde thre gates, and
towarde the south thre gates, and from the west thre gates:
14 and the wall of the cite had twolue foundacios, and in them the names
of the lambes twolue Apostles.
15 And he that talked with me, had a golden rede to measure the cite with
all, and the gates therof, and the wall therof.
16 And the cite was bylt foure square, and the length was as large as the
bredth of it, and he measured the cite with the rede twolue M. furlonges: and
the length and the bredth, and ye heyth of it, were equall.
17 And he measured the wall therof, an cxliiij. cubittes, after ye
measure of a man, which the angel had.
18 And the buyldinge of the wall of it was of Iaspar. And the cite was of
pure golde, like vnto cleare glasse:
19 and ye foundacios of the walles and of ye cite were garnysshed with
all maner of precious stones. The fyrst foundacion was a Iasper, the seconde a
Saphyre, ye thyrde a Calcedony, the fourth a Smaragde:
20 the fyft a Sardonix: the sixt a Sardeos: the seuenth a Crysolite, the
eyght berall: the nynth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleueth a Iacyncte:
the twelfte an Amatist.
21 And the twolue gates were twolue pearles, and euery gate was of one
pearle, and ye strete of the cite was pure golde, as a thoroweshyninge glasse.
22 And I sawe no
. For the LORDE God allmighty and the lambe is the temple of it,
23 and the cite hath no nede of the Sonne, nether of the mone to lyghten
it. For the bryghtnes of God doth light it: and the lambe is the lyght of it.
24 And ye people which are saued, shal walke in the light of it: and the
kynges of the earth shal brynge their glory vnto it.
25 And the gates of it shal not be shut by daye. For there shalbe no
27 And there shal entre in to it none vncleane thinge: nether what soeuer
worketh abhominacion: or maketh lyes: but they which are wrytten in the lambes
boke of life.
1 And he shewed me a pure ryuer of water of life clere as cristall:
proceadinge out of the seate of God and of ye lambe
2 in the myddes of the strete of it, and of ether syde of the ryuer was
there wod of life: which bare twolue maner of frutes: and gaue frute euery
moneth: and the leaues of the wodd serued to heale the people withall.
3 And there shalbe no more cursse, but the seate of God and ye
shalbe in it: and his seruauntes shal serue him:
4 And shal se his face, and his name shalbe in their for heades.
5 And there shalbe no night there, and they nede no candle, nether light
of the Sonne: for the LORDE God geueth the light, and they shal reygne for
6 And he sayde vnto me: these sayenges are faithfull, and true. And the
LORDE God of the holy prophetes sent his angell to shewe vnto his seruantes, the
thinges which muste shortly be fulfylled.
7 Beholde, I come shortly. Happy is he yt kepeth ye sayege of ye prophesy
of this boke.
8 I am Ihon, which sawe these thinges and herde them. And whe I had herde
and sene the, I fell downe to worshippe before the fete of the angell which
shewed me these thinges.
9 And he saide vnto me: se thou do it not, for I am thy felowe seruaunt
and the felowe seruaut of thy brethren the prophetes, and of them, which kepe
the sayenges of this boke. Worshippe God.
10 And he sayde vnto me: seale not the sayenges of the prophesy of this
boke. For the tyme is at hode.
11 He that doeth euell, let him do euell styll: and he which is filthy,
let him be filthy styll: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous:
and he that is holy, let him be more holy.
12 And beholde, I come shortly, and my rewarde with me, to geue euery ma
acordinge as his dedes shalbe.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, ye beginnynge and the ende: the first & the
14 Blessed are they that do his commaundementes, that their power maye be
in the tree of life, and maye entre in thorow the gates in to the cite.
15 For without are dogges and inchaunters and whormongers, and mortherers,
and ydolaters, and whosoeuer loueth or maketh lesinges.
16 I Iesus haue sent myne angell, to testifie vnto you these thinges in
the cogregacions. I am the rote and the generacion of Dauid, and the bright
17 And the sprete and the bryde saye: Come. And let him that heareth,
saye also: Come. And let him that is a thyrst, come. And let whosoeuer wyll,
take of the water of life fre.
18 I testifye vnto euery man that heareth the wordes of prophesy of this
boke yf eny man shal adde vnto these thinges, God shal adde vnto him the plages
that are wrytten in this boke.
19 And yf eny man shal mynishe of the wordes of the boke of this
prophesy, God shal take awaye his parte out of the boke of life, and out of the
holy citie, and fro tho thinges which are wrytten in this boke.
20 He which testifyeth these thinges, sayth: Yee I come quyckly, Amen.
Euen so: come LORDE Iesu.
21 The grace of oure LORDE Iesu Christ be with you all. Amen.
