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; who bare witness of the word of
God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, even of all things that
he saw. 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. 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; 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 loves us, and loosed us from our sins
by his blood; 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.
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. I am the
Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to
come, the Almighty. 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. I was in the Spirit on
the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet
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. And I turned to see the voice
that spake with me. And having turned I saw seven golden candlesticks;
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. And his
head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; and his
eyes were as a flame of fire; 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. 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. 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, 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. Write therefore the things
which thou sawest, and the things which are, and the things which shall
come to pass hereafter; 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.
To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
These things says he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, he
that walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks:
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;
and thou hast patience and didst bear for my
name's sake, and hast not grown weary. But I have
this against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love.
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.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of
the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath
an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says 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. And to the angel of the church
in Smyrna write: These things says the first and the last, who was dead,
and lived again: 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.
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.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit says to the churches. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
second death. and to the angel of the church in
Pergamum write: These things says he that hath the sharp two-edged sword:
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. 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. So hast thou also some that hold
the teaching of the Nicolaitans in like manner.
Repent therefore; or else I come to thee
quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of my mouth.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit says 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.
And to the angel of the church in Thyatira
write: These things says the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame
of fire, and his feet are like unto burnished brass:
I know thy works, and thy love and faith and
ministry and patience, and that thy last works are more than the first.
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. And I gave her time that
she should repent; and she willeth not to repent of her fornication.
Behold, I cast her into a bed, and them that
commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of her
works. 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.
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.
Nevertheless that which ye have, hold fast till
I come. And he that overcometh, and he that
keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give authority over the
nations: 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: and I will give him the
morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear
what the Spirit says to the churches.
And to the angel of the church in Sardis write:
These things says 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. 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. Remember therefore
how thou hast received and didst hear; and keep it, and repent. If
therefore thou will not watch, I will come as a thief, and thou will not
know what hour I will come upon thee. 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.
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.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
says to the churches. And to the angel of the
church in Philadelphia write: These things says 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: 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. 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. 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. I come quickly: hold fast
that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown.
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. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit says to the churches. And to the angel
of the church in Laodicea write: These things says the Amen, the faithful
and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God:
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor
hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So because
thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my
mouth. 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:
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.
As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be
zealous therefore, and repent. 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.
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. He that hath an ear, let him hear
what the Spirit says to the churches.
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.
Straightway I was in the Spirit: and behold,
there was a throne set in heaven, and one sitting upon the throne;
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. 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. 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; 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.
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.
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.
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, 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
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.
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. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with
a great voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals
thereof? And no one in the heaven, or on the
earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look thereon.
And I wept much, because no one was found worthy
to open the book, or to look thereon: and one of
the elders says 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. 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.
And he came, and he taketh it out of the
right hand of him that sat on the throne. 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.
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, and
madest them to be unto our God a kingdom and priests; and they
reign upon earth.
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; 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.
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
And the four living creatures said, Amen. And
the elders fell down and worshipped.
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. 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.
And when he opened the second seal, I heard the
second living creature saying, Come. 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. And
when he opened the third 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. 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. And when he opened
the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying,
Come. 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. 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:
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? 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. 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;
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.
And the heaven was removed as a scroll when it
is rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of their
places. 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; 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: for
the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?
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.
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, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea,
nor the trees, till we shall have sealed the servants of our God on their
foreheads. 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:
Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve
Of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand;
Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
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;
and they cry with a great voice, saying,
Salvation unto our God who sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb.
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,
Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and
power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me,
These that are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and whence came they?
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.
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.
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any
more; neither shall the sun strike upon them, nor any heat:
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.
And when he opened the seventh seal, there
followed a silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
And I saw the seven angels that stand before God;
and there were given unto them seven trumpets.
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. And the smoke of the
incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the
angel's hand. 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. And the seven angels that had the
seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 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. 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; 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. 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;
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. 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.
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.
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. 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. And out of the smoke came forth
locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the
earth have power. 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. 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.
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. 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.
And they had hair as the hair of women, and their
teeth were as teeth of lions. 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.
And they have tails like unto scorpions, and
stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men five months.
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. The first Woe is past:
behold, there come yet two Woes hereafter. And
the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the horns of the golden
altar which is before God, one saying to the
sixth angel that had one trumpet, Loose the four angels that are bound at
the great river Euphrates. 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.
And the number of the armies of the horsemen was
twice ten thousand times ten thousand: I heard the number of them.
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. 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.
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. 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: and they
repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their
fornication, nor of their thefts.
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;
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;
and he cried with a great voice, as a lion
roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.
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.
And the angel that I saw standing upon the sea
and upon the earth lifted up his right hand to heaven,
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: 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. 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. And I
went unto the angel, saying unto him that he should give me the little
book. And he says 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.
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. And they
say unto me, Thou must prophesy again over many peoples and nations and
tongues and kings.
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. 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. And I will give unto my
two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and
threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are
the two olive trees and the two candlesticks, standing before the Lord of
the earth. 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.
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. 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.
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. 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. 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. 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.
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. 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.
The second Woe is past: behold, the third Woe
cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded;
and there followed great voices in heaven, and they said,
The kingdom of the world is become the kingdom of our Lord, and of
his Christ: and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, who sit before
God on their thrones, fell upon their faces and worshipped God,
We give thee thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who art and who wast;
because thou hast taken thy great power, and didst reign.
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
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.
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; and she was the child;
and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in pain to be delivered.
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. 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. 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. 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. And
there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war
with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels;
And they prevailed not, neither was their place
found any more in heaven. 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. 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.
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. 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.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast down
to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the man
child. 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. 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.
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. 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:
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.
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. 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;
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?
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. And he opened his
mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his
tabernacle, even them that dwell in the heaven.
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.
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.
If any man hath an ear, let him hear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. 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; 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. 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
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.
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:
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.
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. And
in their mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.
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;
and he says 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.
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.
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,
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: 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. Here is the patience of the
saints, they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard the voice from heaven saying,
Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth: yea,
says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works
follow with them. 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.
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. And he that sat on the cloud
cast his sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped.
Another angel came out from the temple which is
in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 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. 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. 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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
And after these things I saw, and the temple of
the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
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.
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. 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
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. 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. 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.
And the third poured out his bowl into the
rivers and the fountains of the waters; and it became blood.
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: for they poured out the blood
of the saints and the prophets, and blood hast thou given them to drink:
they are worthy. And I heard the altar saying,
Yea, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun;
and it was given unto it to scorch men with fire.
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. 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,
and they blasphemed the God of heaven because
of their pains and their sores; and they repented not of their works.
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. 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:
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.
(Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that
watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walked naked, and they see his
shame.) And they gathered them together into
the place which is called in Hebrew Har-magedon.
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: 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. And the great city was
divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and Babylon
the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give unto her the cup of
the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And
every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
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
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;
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. 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. 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, and upon her forehead a name
written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE
ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 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.
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.
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.
Here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven
heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth:
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. And the beast that
was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he
goeth into perdition. 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.
These have one mind, and they give their power
and authority unto the beast. 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. And
he says unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth,
are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
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.
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. And
the woman whom thou sawest is the great city, which reigneth over the
kings of the earth.
After these things I saw another angel coming
down out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened
with his glory. 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. 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.
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:
for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and
God hath remembered her iniquities. 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.
How much soever she glorified herself, and waxed
wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she says in her
heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning.
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.
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,
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. And the merchants of
the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth their merchandise any
more; 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;
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. 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. The merchants of these things, who
were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment,
weeping and mourning; 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!
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,
and cried out as they looked upon the smoke of
her burning, saying, What city is like the great city?
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. Rejoice over
her, thou heaven, and ye saints, and ye apostles, and ye prophets; for God
hath judged your judgment on her. 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.
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;
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.
And in her was found the blood of prophets and
of saints, and of all that have been slain upon the earth.
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:
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.
And a second time they say, Hallelujah. And her
smoke goeth up for ever and ever. And the four
and twenty elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped
God that sitteth on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah.
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.
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
Hallelujah: for the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigneth.
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. 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.
And he says unto me, Write, Blessed are they
that are bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he says unto me,
These are true words of God. And I fell down
before his feet to worship him. And he says 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. 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.
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. And he is
arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his name is called The Word
of God. And the armies which are in heaven
followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and
pure. 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. And he hath on his
garment and on his thigh a name written, KINGS OF KINGS, AND LORD OF
LORDS. 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;
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. 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.
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: 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.
And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven,
having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent,
which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
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. 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.
The rest of the dead lived not until the
thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection.
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. And when the thousand years are finished,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. And death and Hades were cast into the
lake of fire. This is the second death, even the lake of fire.
And if any was not found written in the book of
life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
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.
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming
down out of heaven of God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
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: 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. And he that sitteth on the throne
said, Behold, I make all things new. And he says, Write: for these words
are faithful and true. 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. He that overcometh shall inherit these
things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
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.
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. 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, having the glory
of God: her light was like unto a stone most precious, as it were a jasper
stone, clear as crystal: 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: on the east were three
gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on
the west three gates. And the wall of the city
had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of
the Lamb. 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. 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. 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.
And the building of the wall thereof was
jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto pure glass.
The foundations of the wall of the city were
adorned with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was
jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;
the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the
seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth,
chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.
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. And I
saw no temple therein: for the Lord God the Almighty, and the Lamb, are
the temple thereof. 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.
And the nations shall walk amidst the light
thereof: and the kings of the earth bring their glory into it.
And the gates thereof shall in no wise be shut
by day (for there shall be no night there): and
they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it:
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.
And he showed me a river of water of life,
bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,
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.
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; and they shall see his face; and his
name shall be on their foreheads. 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. 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. And behold, I come
quickly. Blessed is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this
book. 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. And he
says 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. And he says unto me, Seal
not up the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand.
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.
Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with
me, to render to each man according as his work is.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the
last, the beginning and the end. 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.
Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and
the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that
loves and maketh a lie. 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.
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.
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:
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.
He who testifieth these things says, Yea: I
come quickly. Amen: come, Lord Jesus. The grace
of the Lord Jesus be with the saints. Amen.
