The Revelation of Jesus the anointed, which the god gave to him, to show to his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his messenger to his servant John:
Who bore record of the word of the god, and of the testimony of Jesus the anointed, and of all things that he saw.
Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
John to the seven assemblies which are in Asia: Grace be to you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
And from Jesus the anointed, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. To him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And has made us kings and priests to the god and his father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus the anointed, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of the god, and for the testimony of Jesus the anointed.
I was in the Spirit on the lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book, and send it to the seven assemblies which are in Asia; to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
And in the middle of the seven candlesticks one like to the son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the breasts with a golden girdle.
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
And his feet like to fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand on me, saying to me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for ever more, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the messengers of the seven assemblies: and the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven assemblies.
To the messenger of the assembly of Ephesus write; These things said he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the middle of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are envoys, and are not, and have found them liars:
And have borne, and have patience, and for my name’s sake have labored, and have not fainted.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love.
Remember therefore from where you are fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of his place, except you repent.
But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the middle of the paradise of the god.
And to the messenger of the assembly in Smyrna write; These things said the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the slanderer shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you shall have tribulation ten days: be you faithful to death, and I will give you a crown of life.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies; He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.
And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write; These things said he which has the sharp sword with two edges;
I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan’s seat is: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.
But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication.
So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it.
And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira write; These things said the son of the god, who has his eyes like to a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
I know your works, and love, and service, and faith, and your patience, and your works; and the last to be more than the first.
Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, because you suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
And I will kill her children with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.
But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put on you none other burden.
But that which you have already hold fast till I come.
And he that overcomes, and keeps my works to the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my father.
And I will give him the morning star.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies.
And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write; These things said he that has the seven Spirits of the god, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before the god.
Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you.
You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my father, and before his messengers.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies.
And to the messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write; These things said he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come on all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown.
Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my the god, and he shall go no more out: and I will write on him the name of my the god, and the name of the city of my the god, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of the sky from my the god: and I will write on him my new name.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies.
And to the messenger of the assembly of the Laodiceans write; These things said the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of the god;
I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot.
So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke 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.
To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my father in his throne.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the assemblies.
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in the sky: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in the sky, and one sat on the throne.
And he that sat was to look on like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like to an emerald.
And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and on the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the throne proceeded lightning and thunder and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of the god.
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like to crystal: and in the middle of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, lord the god Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who lives for ever and ever,
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that lives for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
You are worthy, O lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
And I saw a strong messenger proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
And no man in the sky, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
And I beheld, and, see, in the middle of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the middle of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of the god sent forth into all the earth.
And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat on the throne.
And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints.
And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to the god by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
And have made us to our god kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many messengers round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
And every creature which is in the sky, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be to him that sits on the throne, and to the Lamb for ever and ever.
And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that lives for ever and ever.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given to him a great sword.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and see a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the middle of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see you hurt not the oil and the wine.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of the god, and for the testimony which they held:
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O lord, holy and true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And white robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brothers, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, see, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
And the stars of the sky fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the sky departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every slave, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
And after these things I saw four messengers standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
And I saw another messenger ascending from the east, having the seal of the living the god: and he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers, 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 have sealed the servants of our god in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
After this I beheld, and, see, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our god which sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.
And all the messengers stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped the god,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be to our god for ever and ever. Amen.
And one of the elders answered, saying to me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and from where came they?
And I said to him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Therefore are they before the throne of the god, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them.
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb which is in the middle of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them to living fountains of waters: and the god shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in the sky about the space of half an hour.
And I saw the seven messengers which stood before the god; and to them were given seven trumpets.
And another messenger came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before the god out of the messenger’s hand.
And the messenger took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunder, and lightning, and an earthquake.
And the seven messengers which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The first messenger sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast on the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
And the second messenger 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 the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
And the third messenger sounded, and there fell a great star from the sky, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and on the fountains of 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 messenger sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
And I beheld, and heard a messenger flying through the middle of the sky, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three messengers, which are yet to sound!
And the fifth messenger sounded, and I saw a star fall from the sky to the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose 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 there came out of the smoke locusts on the earth: and to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of the god in their foreheads.
And to them it was given 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 he strikes a man.
And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
And the shapes of the locusts were like to horses prepared to battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the 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 running to battle.
And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
And they had a king over them, which is the messenger of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has his name Apollyon.
One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
And the sixth messenger sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before the god,
Saying to the sixth messenger which had the trumpet, Loose the four messengers which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
And the four messengers were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like to serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
And I saw another mighty messenger come down from the sky, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was on his head, and his face was as it were 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 on the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from the sky saying to me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
And the messenger which I saw stand on the sea and on the earth lifted up his hand to the sky,
And swore by him that lives for ever and ever, who created the sky, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
But in the days of the voice of the seventh messenger, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of the god should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.
And the voice which I heard from the sky spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the messenger which stands on the sea and on the earth.
And I went to the messenger, and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.
And I took the little book out of the messenger’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
And he said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
And there was given me a reed like to a rod: and the messenger stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of the god, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given to the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three score days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the the god of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut the sky, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell on the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelled on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from the god entered into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell on them which saw them.
And they heard a great voice from the sky saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended up to the sky in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the the god of the sky.
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe comes quickly.
And the seventh messenger sounded; and there were great voices in the sky, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our lord, and of his the anointed; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, which sat before the god on their seats, fell on their faces, and worshipped the god,
Saying, We give you thanks, O lord the god Almighty, which are, and were, and are to come; because you have taken to you your great power, and have reigned.
And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward to your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.
And the temple of the god was opened in the sky, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightning, and voices, and thunder, and an earthquake, and great hail.
And there appeared a great wonder in the sky; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
And there appeared another wonder in the sky; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of the sky, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up to the god, and to his throne.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of the god, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three score days.
And there was war in the sky: Michael and his messengers fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his messengers,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in the sky.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the slanderer, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his messengers were cast out with him.
And I heard a loud voice saying in the sky, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our god, and the power of his the anointed: for the accuser of our brothers is cast down, which accused them before our god day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.
Therefore rejoice, you skies, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the slanderer is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into 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 water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of the god, and have the testimony of Jesus the anointed.
And I stood on the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads the name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like to 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 seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like to the beast? who is able to make war with him?
And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty and two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against the god, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in the sky.
And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear.
He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
And he excercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from the sky on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power 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, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three score and six.
And I looked, and, see, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his father’s name written in their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from the sky, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits to the god and to the Lamb.
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of the god.
And I saw another messenger fly in the middle of the sky, having the everlasting good message to proclaim to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, Fear the god, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made the sky, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And there followed another messenger, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
And the third messenger followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of the god, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy messengers, and in the presence of the Lamb:
And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of the god, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from the sky saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the lord from now on: Yes, said the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and on the cloud one sat like to the son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another messenger came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
And another messenger came out of the temple which is in the sky, he also having a sharp sickle.
And another messenger came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
And the messenger thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great wine press of the wrath of the god.
And the wine press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the wine press, even to the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
And I saw another sign in the sky, great and marvelous, seven messengers having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of the god.
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of the god.
And they sing the song of Moses the servant of the god, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, lord the god Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints.
Who shall not fear you, O lord, and glorify your name? for you only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments are made manifest.
And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in the sky was opened:
And the seven messengers came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
And one of the four beasts gave to the seven messengers seven golden vials full of the wrath of the god, who lives for ever and ever.
And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of the god, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven messengers were fulfilled.
And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven messengers, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of the god on the earth.
And the first went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image.
And the second messenger poured out his vial on the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
And the third messenger poured out his vial on the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
And I heard the messenger of the waters say, You are righteous, O lord, which are, and were, and shall be, because you have judged thus.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, lord the god Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.
And the fourth messenger poured out his vial on the sun; and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of the god, which has power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
And the fifth messenger poured out his vial on the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
And blasphemed the the god of the sky because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
And the sixth messenger poured out his vial on the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of the god Almighty.
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
And the seventh messenger poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of the sky, from the throne, saying, It is done.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightning; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were on the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before the god, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And there fell on men a great hail out of the sky, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed the god because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
And there came one of the seven messengers which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying to me, Come here; I will show to you the judgment of the great whore that sits on many waters:
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit on a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND 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 great admiration.
And the messenger said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.
The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast.
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
For the god has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of the god shall be fulfilled.
And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
And after these things I saw another messenger come down from the sky, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from the sky, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached to the sky, and the god has remembered her iniquities.
Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double to her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double.
How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she said in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the lord the god who judges her.
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall mourn her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is your judgment come.
And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their merchandise any more:
The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
And the fruits that your soul lusted after are departed from you, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from you, and you shall find them no more at all.
The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
For in one hour so great riches is come to nothing. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like to this great city!
And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
Rejoice over her, you the sky, and you holy envoys and prophets; for the god has avenged you on her.
And a mighty messenger took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in you; and no craftsman, of whatever craft he be, shall be found any more in you; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in you;
And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived.
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain on the earth.
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in the sky, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, to the lord our god:
For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped the god that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our god, all you his servants, and you that fear him, both small and 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 thunder, saying, Alleluia: for the lord the god omnipotent reigns.
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.
And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
And he said to me, Write, Blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of the god.
And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See you do it not: I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers that have the testimony of Jesus: worship the god: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
And I saw the sky opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a clothing dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of the god.
And the armies which were in the sky followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty the god.
And he has on his clothing and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND lord OF lordS.
And I saw a messenger standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the middle of the sky, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great the god;
That you 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 on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both 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 on the horse, and against his army.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that worked miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat on the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
And I saw a messenger come down from the sky, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the slanderer, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of the god, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark on their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with the anointed a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of the god and of the anointed, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from the god out of the sky, and devoured them.
And the slanderer that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the sky fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before the god; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
And I saw a new the sky and a new earth: for the first the sky and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from the god out of the sky, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of the sky saying, Behold, the tabernacle of the god is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and the god himself shall be with them, and be their the god.
And the god shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his the god, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
And there came to me one of the seven messengers which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of the sky from the god,
Having the glory of the god: and her light was like to a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve envoys of the Lamb.
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the messenger.
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like to clear glass.
And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate 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 the god Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of the god did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of the god and of the Lamb.
In the middle of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bore twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of the god and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the lord the god gives them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
And he said to me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the lord the god of the holy prophets sent his messenger to show to his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger which showed me these things.
Then said he to me, See you do it not: for I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship the god.
And he said to me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.
I Jesus have sent my messenger to testify to you these things in the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, the god shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, the god shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifies these things said, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, lord Jesus.
The grace of our lord Jesus the anointed be with you all. Amen.
