Revelation
Chapter 1

1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto his

servants, [even] the things which must shortly come to pass: and he sent

and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John;

2 who bare witness of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus

Christ, [even] of all things that he saw.

3. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of the

prophecy, and keep the things that are written therein: for the time is at

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, Amen.

8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was

and who is to come, the Almighty.

9. I John, your brother and partaker with you in tribulation and kingdom

and patience [which are] in Jesus, was in the isle that is called Patmos,

for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a great

voice, as of a trumpet

11 saying, What thou seest, write in a book and send [it] to the seven

churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, and unto

Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And having turned I

saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 and in the midst of the candlesticks one like unto a son of man,

clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about at the breasts with

a golden girdle.

14 And his head and his hair were white as white wool, [white] as snow;

and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 and his feet like unto burnished brass, as if it had been refined in a

furnace; and his voice as the voice of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth

proceeded a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun

shineth in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his

right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last,

18 and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for

evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

19 Write therefore the things which thou sawest, and the things which

are, and the things which shall come to pass hereafter;

20 the mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and

the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven

churches: and the seven candlesticks are seven churches.



Revelation
Chapter 2

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 weary.

4 But I have [this] against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love.

5 Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first

works; or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its

place, except thou repent.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nicolaitans,

which I also hate.

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the

churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of

life, which is in the Paradise of God.

8. And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These things saith the

first and the last, who was dead, and lived [again]:

9 I know thy tribulation, and thy poverty (but thou art rich), and the

blasphemy of them that say they are Jews, and they art not, but are a

synagogue of Satan.

10 Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: behold, the devil

is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye

shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will

give thee the crown of life.

11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the

churches. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

12. and to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These things saith

he that hath the sharp two-edged sword:

13 I know where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan's throne is; and thou

holdest fast my name, and didst not deny my faith, even in the days of

Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan

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 fornication.

15 So hast thou also some that hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans in

like manner.

16 Repent therefore; or else I come to thee quickly, and I will make war

against them with the sword of my mouth.

17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the

churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna,

and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written,

which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it.

18. And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith

the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are

like unto burnished brass:

19 I know thy works, and thy love and faith and ministry and patience,

and that thy last works are more than the first.

20 But I have [this] against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel,

who calleth herself a prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my servants

to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.

21 And I gave her time that she should repent; and she willeth not to

repent of her fornication.

22 Behold, I cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her

into great tribulation, except they repent of her works.

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall

know that I am he that searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto

each one of you according to your works.

24 But to you I say, to the rest that are in Thyatira, as many as have

not this teaching, who know not the deep things of Satan, as they are wont

to say; I cast upon you none other burden.

25 Nevertheless that which ye have, hold fast till I come.

26 And he that overcometh, and he that keepeth my works unto the end, to

him will I give authority over the nations:

27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the

potter are broken to shivers; as I also have received of my Father:

28 and I will give him the morning star.

29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the

churches.

 



Revelation
Chapter 3

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 my name.

9 Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are

Jews, and they are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and

worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee

from the hour of trial, that [hour] which is to come upon the whole world,

to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy

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 or hot.

16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew

thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need

of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched one and miserable

and poor and blind and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that thou mayest

become rich; and white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself, and

[that] the shame of thy nakedness be not made manifest; and eyesalve to

anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous therefore, and

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.



Revelation
Chapter 4

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 of God;

6 and before the throne, as it were a sea of glass like a crystal; and in

the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, four living creatures

full of eyes before and behind.

7 And the first creature [was] like a lion, and the second creature like

a calf, and the third creature had a face as of a man, and the fourth

creature [was] like a flying eagle.

8. and the four living creatures, having each one of them six wings, are

full of eyes round about and within: and they have no rest day and night,

saying, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who

is and who is to come.

9 And when the living creatures shall give glory and honor and thanks to

him that sitteth on the throne, to him that liveth for ever and ever,

10 the four and twenty elders shall fall down before him that sitteth on

the throne, and shall worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and shall

cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11 Worthy art thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the

honor and the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy

will they were, and were created.



Revelation
Chapter 5

1. And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book

written within and on the back, close sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a great voice, Who is worthy

to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And no one in the heaven, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able

to open the book, or to look thereon.

4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or

to look thereon:

5 and one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion that is

of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath overcome to open the book

and the seven seals thereof.

6. And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures,

and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been

slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of

God, sent forth into all the earth.

7 And he came, and he taketh [it] out of the right hand of him that sat

on the throne.

8 And when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the four

and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having each one a harp, and

golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

9 And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy art thou to take the book, and

to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and didst purchase unto God

with thy blood [men] of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation,

10 and madest them [to be] unto our God a kingdom and priests; and they

reign upon earth.

11 And I saw, and I heard a voice of many angels round about the throne

and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was ten

thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 saying with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb that hath been slain to

receive the power, and riches, and wisdom, and might and honor, and glory,

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

worshipped.



Revelation
Chapter 6

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, Come.

4 And another [horse] came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat

thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should

slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

5 And when he opened the first seal, I heard the third living creature

saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon

had a balance in his hand.

6 And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living

creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of

barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.

7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth

living creature saying, Come.

8 And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name

was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them

authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with

famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

9. And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls

of them that had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony

which they held:

10 and they cried with a great voice, saying, How long, O Master, the

holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell

on the earth?

11 And there was given them to each one a white robe; and it was said

unto them, that they should rest yet for a little time, until their

fellow-servants also and their brethren, who should be killed even as they

were, should have fulfilled [their course].

12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great

earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole

moon became as blood;

13 and the stars of the heaven fell unto the earth, as a fig tree casteth

her unripe figs when she is shaken of a great wind.

14 And the heaven was removed as a scroll when it is rolled up; and every

mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the chief captains,

and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman and freeman, hid themselves

in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide

us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of

the Lamb:

17 for the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?



Revelation
Chapter 7

1. After his I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth,

holding the four winds of the earth, that no wind should blow on the earth,

or on the sea, or upon any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascend from the sunrising, having the seal of

the living God: and he cried with a great voice to the four angels to whom

it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we

shall have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of them that were sealed, a hundred and forty

and four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel:

5 Of the tribe of Judah [were] sealed twelve thousand: Of the tribe of

Reuben twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand;

6 Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Naphtali twelve

thousand; Of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand;

7 Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Levi twelve

thousand; Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand;

8 Of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand; Of the tribe of Joseph twelve

thousand; Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand.

9 After these things I saw, and behold, a great multitude, which no man

could number, out of every nation and of [all] tribes and peoples and

tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, arrayed in white

robes, and palms in their hands;

10 and they cry with a great voice, saying, Salvation unto our God who

sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11 And all the angels were standing round about the throne, and [about]

the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell before the throne

on their faces, and worshipped God,

12 saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and

honor, and power, and might, [be] unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, These that are arrayed

in white robes, who are they, and whence came they?

14 And I say unto him, My lord, thou knowest. And he said to me, These

are they that come of the great tribulation, and they washed their robes,

and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 Therefore are they before the throne of God; and they serve him day

and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall spread his

tabernacle over them.

16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the

sun strike upon them, nor any heat:

17 for the Lamb that is in the midst of the throne shall be their

shepherd, and shall guide them unto fountains of waters of life: and God

shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.



Revelation
Chapter 8

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.



Revelation
Chapter 9

1. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven fallen unto

the earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss.

2 And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up a smoke out of

the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were

darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

3 And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was

given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

4 And it was said unto them that they should not hurt the grass of the

earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only such men as have

not the seal of God on their foreheads.

5 And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they

should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a

scorpion, when it striketh a man.

6 And in those days men shall seek death, and shall in no wise find it;

and they shall desire to die, and death fleeth from them.

7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for war;

and upon their heads as it were crowns like unto gold, and their faces were

as men's faces.

8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [teeth]

of lions.

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.



Revelation
Chapter 10

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.



Revelation
Chapter 11

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 them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up

hither. And they went up into heaven in the cloud; and their enemies beheld

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

out Lord, and of his Christ: and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16 And the four and twenty elders, who sit before God on their thrones,

fell upon their faces and worshipped God,

17 saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who art and who

wast; because thou hast taken thy great power, and didst reign.

18 And the nations were wroth, and thy wrath came, and the time of the

dead to be judged, and [the time] to give their reward to thy servants the

prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, the small and

the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.

19 And there was opened the temple of God that is in heaven; and there

was seen in his temple the ark of his covenant; and there followed

lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail.



Revelation
Chapter 12

1. And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman arrayed with the sun, and

the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars;

2 and she was the child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in

pain to be delivered.

3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red

dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems.

4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did

cast them to the earth: and the dragon standeth before the woman that is

about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her child.

5 And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the

nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto

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 night.

11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of

the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.

12. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the

earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having

great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he

persecuted the woman that brought forth the man [child].

14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle,

that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is

nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the

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 Jesus:



Revelation
Chapter 13

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 nation.

8 And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, [every one] whose

name hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of

life of the Lamb that hath been slain.

9 If any man hath an ear, let him hear.

10 If any man [is] for captivity, into captivity he goeth: if any man

shall kill with the sword, with the sword must he be killed. Here is the

patience and the faith of the saints.

11. And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two

horns like unto lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight.

And he maketh the earth and them dwell therein to worship the first beast,

whose death-stroke was healed.

13 And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down

out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men.

14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs

which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that

dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath

the stroke of the sword and lived.

15 And it was given [unto him] to give breath to it, [even] to the image

to the breast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause

that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the

poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their

right hand, or upon their forehead;

17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath

the mark, [even] the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number

of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred

and sixty and six.



Revelation
Chapter 14

1. And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with

him a hundred and forty and four thousand, having his name, and the name of

his Father, written on their foreheads.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as

the voice of a great thunder: and the voice which I heard [was] as [the

voice] of harpers harping with their harps:

3 and they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the

four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn the song save

the hundred and forty and four thousand, [even] they that had been

purchased out of the earth.

4 These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins.

These [are] they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were

purchased from among men, [to be] the firstfruits unto God and unto the

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 fornication.

9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice,

If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his

forehead, or upon his hand,

10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared

unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and

brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the

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 sickle.

15 And another angel came out from the temple, crying with a great voice

to him that sat on the cloud, Send forth thy sickle, and reap: for the hour

to reap is come; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

16 And he that sat on the cloud cast his sickle upon the earth; and the

earth was reaped.

17 Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also

having a sharp sickle.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, he that hath power over

fire; and he called with a great voice to him that had the sharp sickle,

saying, Send forth thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of

the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel cast his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage

of the earth, and cast it into the winepress, the great [winepress], of the

wrath of God.

20 And the winepress are trodden without the city, and there came out

blood from the winepress, even unto the bridles of the horses, as far as a

thousand and six hundred furlongs.



Revelation
Chapter 15

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.

 



Revelation
Chapter 16

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 Har-magedon.

17. And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air; and there came forth

a great voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It is done:

18 and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a

great earthquake, such as was not since there were men upon the earth, so

great an earthquake, so mighty.

19 And the great city was divided into into three parts, and the cities

of the nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of

God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 And great hail, [every stone] about the weight of a talent, cometh

down out of heaven upon men: and men blasphemed God because of the plague

of the hail; for the plague thereof is exceeding great.



Revelation
Chapter 17

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 come.

9 Here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains,

on which the woman sitteth:

10 and they are seven kings; the five are fallen, the one is, the other

is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a little while.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is

of the seven; and he goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns that thou sawest are ten kings, who have received no

kingdom as yet; but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for

one hour.

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 accomplished.

18 And the woman whom thou sawest is the great city, which reigneth over

the kings of the earth.



Revelation
Chapter 18

1. After these things I saw another angel coming down out of heaven,

having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the

great, and is become a habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean

spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For by the wine of the wrath of her fornication all the nations are

fallen; and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the

merchants of the earth waxed rich by the power of her wantonness.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people,

out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive

not of her plagues:

5 for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and God hath remembered her

iniquities.

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 her.

9. And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived

wantonly with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they look upon the

smoke of her burning,

10 standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the

great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man

buyeth their merchandise any more;

12 merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and

fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; and all thyine wood, and

every vessel of ivory, and every vessel made of most precious wood, and of

brass, and iron, and marble;

13 and cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and ointment, and frankincense,

and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep; and

[merchandise] of horses and chariots and slaves; and souls of men.

14 And the fruits which thy soul lusted after are gone from thee, and all

things that were dainty and sumptuous are perished from thee, and [men]

shall find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand

afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;

16 saying, Woe, woe, the great city, she that was arrayed in fine linen

and purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearl!

17 for in an hour so great riches is made desolate. And every shipmaster,

and every one that saileth any wither, and mariners, and as many as gain

their living by sea, stood afar off,

18 and cried out as they looked upon the smoke of her burning, saying,

What [city] is like the great city?

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning,

saying, Woe, woe, the great city, wherein all that had their ships in the

sea were made rich by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made

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 nations deceived.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all

that have been slain upon the earth.



Revelation
Chapter 19

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 ever.

4 And the four and twenty elders and the four living creatures fell down

and worshipped God that sitteth on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah.

5. And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God,

all ye his servants, ye that fear him, the small and the great.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice

of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah:

for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigneth.

7 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto

him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself

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 prophecy.

11. And I saw the heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that

sat thereon called Faithful and True; and in righteous he doth judge and

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 their flesh.



Revelation
Chapter 20

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 prison,

8 and shall come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four

corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war:

the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

9 And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp

of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down out of

heaven, and devoured them.

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and

brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet; and they shall

be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose

face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for

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.



Revelation
Chapter 21

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 twelfth, amethyst.

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 glass.

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: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the lamp thereof [is] the

Lamb.

24 And the nations shall walk amidst the light thereof: and the kings of

the earth bring their glory into it.

25 And the gates thereof shall in no wise be shut by day (for there shall

be no night there):

26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it:

27 and there shall in no wise enter into it anything unclean, or he that

maketh an abomination and a lie: but only they that are written in the

Lamb's book of life.



Revelation
Chapter 22

1. And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal,

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

2 in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and

on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve [manner of] fruits, yielding

its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of

the nations.

3 And there shall be no curse any more: and the throne of God and of the

Lamb shall be therein: and his servants shall serve him;

4 and they shall see his face; and his name [shall be] on their

foreheads.

5 And there shall be night no more; and they need no light of lamp,

neither light of sun; for the Lord God shall give them light: and they

shall reign for ever and ever.

6. And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord,

the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angels to show unto his

servants the things which must shortly come to pass.

7 And behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he that keepeth the words of the

prophecy of this book.

8 And I John am he that heard and saw these things. And when I heard and

saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that showed me

these things.

9 And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with

thee and with thy brethren the prophets, and with them that keep the words

of this book: worship God.

10 And he saith unto me, Seal not up the words of the prophecy of this

book; for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unrighteous, let him do unrighteousness still: and he that

is filthy, let him be made filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him

do righteousness still: and he that is holy, let him be made holy still.

12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each

man according as his work is.

13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning

and the end.

14 Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right

[to come] to the tree of life, and my enter in by the gates into the city.

15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the

murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things for the

churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright, the morning

star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And he that heareth, let him

say, Come. And he that is athirst, let him come: he that will, let him take

the water of life freely.

18 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of

this book, if any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the

plagues which are written in this book:

19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this

prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of

the holy city, which are written in this book.

20. He who testifieth these things saith, Yea: I come quickly. Amen: come,

Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with the saints. Amen.
