A Simple Chronological List
of the Events in Revelation
Addendum: Origins and Destinations
The page below is just an academic exercise with no direct
bearing on interpretations. Instead, the text below actually
flows out of an examination of scripture and functions as
an afterthought. So, what is the text below? The text below
is simply the full text of the book of Revelation, only the
chapter and verses have been renumbered to better reflect
where we believe the text actually breaks into various segments.
It should be noted that the chapter and verse numbers in scripture
are not part of the original, inspired texts. Instead, chapter
and verse numbers, particularly as they exist in modern Bible,
were added in the Middle Ages to aid in citation.
Concerning this historical fact, Wikipedia explains
"Bible, Chapters and verses - The current division
of the Bible into chapters and the verse numbers within the
chapters have no basis in any ancient textual tradition. Rather,
they are medieval Christian inventions …The division of
the Bible into chapters and verses has often elicited severe
criticism from traditionalists and modern scholars alike.
Critics charge that the text is often divided into chapters
in an incoherent way, or at inappropriate points within the
narrative, and that it encourages citing passages out of context,
in effect turning the Bible into a kind of textual quarry
for clerical citations. Nevertheless, even the critics admit
that the chapter divisions and verse numbers have become indispensable
as technical references for Bible study. Stephen Langton
is reputed to have been the first to put the chapter divisions
into a Vulgate edition of the Bible, in 1205. They were then
inserted into Greek manuscripts of the New Testament in the
1400s. Robert Estienne (Robert Stephanus) was the first to
number the verses within each chapter, his verse numbers
entering printed editions in 1565 (New Testament) and 1571
(Hebrew Bible)." - Wikipedia
A second article on the topic by Wikipedia includes
the following details:
"Chapters and verses of the Bible - Chapters came about
after the Bible had been divided into verses. Chapters were
added by Cardinal Hugo de Sancto Caro between 1244 and 1248
A.D. He did this when he was preparing a concordance of the
Bible. Before the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D., the New Testament
was divided into paragraphs which were different from our
current divisions. The modern chapter divisions came about
through Stephen Langton, a professor at the University of
Paris and afterwards an Archbishop of Canterbury. He put the
modern divisions into place around 1227 A.D. Since the
Wycliffe English Bible of 1382 this pattern has been followed.
In the New Testament, the verse divisions were first added
by Robert Estienne in his 1551 edition of the Greek New testament.
In 1557, the first English New Testament with verse divisions
were used in a translation by William Whittingham (c. 1524-1579).
These divisions have been used by nearly all English Bibles
since then. The first Bible in English to use both chapters
and verses was the Geneva Bible in 1560." - Wikipedia
Given the fact that the chapter and verse divisions in the
Bible are products of the Middle Ages created for the purpose
of making citation more convenient, it should not raise alarm
that we have renumbered the text of Revelation ourselves according
to what we believe Revelation's own text indicates are more
proper section breaks. Doing so does not constitute any tampering
with sacred text or alteration of inspired scripture.
With that said, just for fun, below is the full text of Revelation
with renumbered chapter and verse divisions according to the
clues provided by the text itself. The reader may notice that
our divisions contain only 22 chapters, the same number of
chapters as the standard division found in any Bible. However,
this is coincidental. The text just happened to divide fairly
ideally into 22 chapters, even according to our understanding
of where the segments of the text break.
1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him,
to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to
pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant
1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony
of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words
of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written
therein: for the time is at hand.
1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be
unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and
which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before
1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and
the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings
of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our
sins in his own blood,
1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;
to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1:7 Behold, he cometh 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.
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith
the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the
1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation,
and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the
isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the
testimony of Jesus Christ.
2:1 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind
me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
2:2 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:
and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the
seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna,
and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and
unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
2:3 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And
being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
2:4 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto
the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and
girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
2:5 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white
as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
2:6 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in
a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
2:7 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his
mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was
as the sun shineth in his strength.
2:8 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he
laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am
the first and the last:
2:9 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive
for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
2:10 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things
which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
2:11 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
which thou sawest are the seven churches.
3:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things
saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who
walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
3:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and
how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast
tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast
found them liars:
3:3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake
hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
3:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou
hast left thy first love.
3:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent,
and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly,
and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou
3:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
3:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat
of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise
3:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These
things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is
3:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou
art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they
are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
3:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold,
the devil shall 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 a crown of life.
3:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of
the second death.
3:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These
things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
3:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where
Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not
denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my
faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
3:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast
there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac
to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to
eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
3:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
3:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
3:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; To him that overcometh 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 knoweth saving
he that receiveth it.
3:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These
things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a
flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
3:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith,
and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than
3:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because
thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a
prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication,
and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
3:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and
she repented not.
3:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit
adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent
of their deeds.
3:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the
churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins
and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according
to your works.
3:24 But unto you I say, and unto 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 upon you none other
3:25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
3:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the
end, to him will I give power over the nations:
3:27 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.
3:28 And I will give him the morning star.
3:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
3:30 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These
things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the
seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that
thou livest, and art dead.
3:31 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain,
that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect
3:32 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard,
and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch,
I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what
hour I will come upon thee.
3:33 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled
their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for
they are worthy.
3:34 He that overcometh, 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 angels.
3:35 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
3:36 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write;
These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that
hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth;
and shutteth, and no man openeth;
3:37 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open
door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength,
and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
3:38 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 thy feet, and to know
that I have loved thee.
3:39 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also
will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come
upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
3:40 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast,
that no man take thy crown.
3:41 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple
of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon
him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God,
which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from
my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
3:42 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches. 3:43 And unto the angel of the church of
the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful
and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
3:44 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:
I would thou wert cold or hot.
3:45 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor
hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
3:46 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods,
and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched,
and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
3:47 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that
thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be
clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
3:48 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore,
3:49 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.
3:50 To him that overcometh 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.
3:51 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in
heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of
a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and
I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne
was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine
stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in
sight like unto an emerald.
4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats:
and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed
in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings
and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before
the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto
crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the
throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
4:7 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.
4:8 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 God Almighty, which
was, and is, and is to come.
4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks
to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that
sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and
ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour
and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.
4:12 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
4:13 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice,
Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
4:14 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the
earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4:15 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open
and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
4:16 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold,
the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed
to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
4:17 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and
of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood
a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven
eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all
4:18 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of
him that sat upon the throne.
4:19 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 odours, which
are the prayers of saints.
4:20 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to
take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast
slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every
kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
4:30 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and
we shall reign on the earth.
4:31 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round
about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number
of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands
4:32 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was
slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength,
and honour, and glory, and blessing.
4:33 And every creature which is in heaven, 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 honour, and glory,
and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto
the Lamb for ever and ever.
4:34 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty
elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and
5:15 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.
5:16 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat
on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went
forth conquering, and to conquer.
5:17 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
beast say, Come and see.
5:18 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
unto him a great sword.
5:19 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third
beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse;
and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
5:20 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say,
A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley
for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
5:21 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice
of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
5:22 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 unto 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.
5:23 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the
altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God,
and for the testimony which they held:
5:24 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O
Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood
on them that dwell on the earth?
5:26 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and
it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little
season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren,
that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
5:27 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and,
lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black
as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
5:28 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as
a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of
a mighty wind.
5:29 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
5:30 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the
rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and
every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens
and in the rocks of the mountains;
5:31 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and
hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and
from the wrath of the Lamb:
5:32 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall
be able to stand?
6:1 And after these things I saw four angels 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.
6:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having
the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice
to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth
and the sea,
6:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
6:4 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.
6:5 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.
6:6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
6:7 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.
6:8 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.
7:1 After this I beheld, and, lo, 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;
7:2 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our
God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
7:3 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about
the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne
on their faces, and worshipped God,
7:4 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving,
and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever
and ever. Amen.
7:5 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are
these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
7:6 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. 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.
7:7 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve
him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the
throne shall dwell among them.
7:8 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:9 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall
feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters:
and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
7:10 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence
in heaven about the space of half an hour.
8:1 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and
to them were given seven trumpets.
8:2 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having
a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense,
that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon
the golden altar which was before the throne.
8:3 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers
of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
8:4 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire
of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices,
and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
9:1 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared
themselves to sound.
9:2 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire
mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and
the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass
was burnt up.
9:3 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain
burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part
of the sea became blood;
9:4 And the third part of the creatures which were in the
sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were
9:5 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star
from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the
third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
9:6 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.
9:7 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; so as the third part of them was darkened,
and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night
9:8 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst
of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the
inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the
trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
9:9 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from
heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the
9:10 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.
9:11 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth:
and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth
9:12 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 God in their
9:13 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 striketh a man.
9:14 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not
find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from
9:15 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared
unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like
gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
9:16 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth
were as the teeth of lions.
9:17 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.
9:18 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were
stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five
9:19 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of
the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon,
but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
9:20 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more
9:21 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from
the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
9:22 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose
the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
9:23 And the four angels 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.
9:24 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred
thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
9:25 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
9:26 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.
9:27 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails:
for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and
with them they do hurt.
9:28 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 devils, and idols of gold, and silver,
and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see,
nor hear, nor walk:
9:29 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their
sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven,
clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and
his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of
10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set
his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth:
and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices,
I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying
unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered,
and write them not.
10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon
the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created
heaven, 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:
10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when
he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished,
as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me
again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open
in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon
10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me
the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it
up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in
thy mouth sweet as honey.
10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand,
and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and
as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before
many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
10:12 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the
angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God,
and the altar, and them that worship therein.
10:13 But the court which is without the temple leave out,
and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and
the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
11:1 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they
shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth.
11:2 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
11:3 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of
their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will
hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
11:4 These have power to shut heaven, 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.
11:5 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the
beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make
war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
11:6 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.
11:7 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.
11:8 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over
them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another;
because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the
11:9 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from
God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and
great fear fell upon them which saw them.
11:10 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto
them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a
cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
11:11 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 God of heaven.
12:1 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh
12:2 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices
in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the
kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign
for ever and ever.
12:3 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God
on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
12:4 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which
art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to
thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
12:5 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and
the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that
thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets,
and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and
great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
12:6 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there
was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there
were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake,
and great hail.
13:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman
clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon
her head a crown of twelve stars:
13:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth,
and pained to be delivered.
13:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold
a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and
seven crowns upon his heads.
13:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven,
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.
13:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all
nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto
God, and to his throne.
13:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath
a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a
thousand two hundred and threescore days.
14:1 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought
against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
14:2 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any
more in heaven.
14:3 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out
14:4 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come
salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the
power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast
down, which accused them before our God day and night.
14:5 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by
the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives
unto the death.
14:6 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the
devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he
knoweth that he hath but a short time.
14:7 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth,
he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14:8 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.
14:9 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.
14:10 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.
14:11 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to
make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments
of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
14:12 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast
rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,
and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name
14:13 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
seat, and great authority.
14:14 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.
14:15 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto
the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like
unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
14:16 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great
things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue
forty and two months.
14:17 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell
14:18 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints,
and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds,
and tongues, and nations.
14:19 And all that dwell upon 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.
14:20 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
14:21 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity:
he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
14:22 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;
and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
14:23 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before
him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to
worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
14:24 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come
down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14:25 And deceiveth 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.
14:26 And he had power to give life unto 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.
14:27 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor,
free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in
14:28 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.
14:29 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count
the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and
his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
14:30 And I looked, and, lo, 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.
14:31 And I heard a voice from heaven, 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:
14:32 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.
14:33 These are they which were not defiled with women; for
they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever
he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits
unto God and to the Lamb.
14:34 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are
without fault before the throne of God.
15:1 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having
the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the
earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
15:2 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to
him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him
that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains
15:3 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is
fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations
drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
15:4 And the third angel 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,
15:5 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of 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 angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
15:6 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever
and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship
the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark
of his name.
15:7 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that
keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
15:8 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write,
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours;
and their works do follow them.
15:9 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the
cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head
a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15:10 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with
a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle,
and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest
of the earth is ripe.
15:11 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on
the earth; and the earth was reaped.
15:12 And another angel came out of the temple which is in
heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
15:13 And another angel 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 thy sharp sickle, and
gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes
are fully ripe.
15:14 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and
gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great
winepress of the wrath of God.
15:15 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and
blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles,
by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
16:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous,
seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is
filled up the wrath of God.
16:2 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 God.
16:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and
the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy
works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou
King of saints.
16:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name?
for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship
before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
17:1 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the
tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
17:2 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the
seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having
their breasts girded with golden girdles.
17:3 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels
seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for
ever and ever.
17:4 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of
God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into
the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were
17:5 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to
the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of
the wrath of God upon the earth.
17:6 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the
earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the
men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped
17:7 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea;
and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living
soul died in the sea.
17:8 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers
and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
17:9 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous,
O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast
17:10 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
17:11 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord
God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
17:12 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun;
and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
17:13 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed
the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and
they repented not to give him glory.
17:14 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat
of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they
gnawed their tongues for pain,
17:15 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains
and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
17:16 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great
river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that
the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
17:17 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.
17:18 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles,
which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole
world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God
17:19 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth,
and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see
17:20 And he gathered them together into a place called in
the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17:21 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air;
and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven,
from the throne, saying, It is done.
17:22 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings;
and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men
were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
17:23 And the great city was divided into three parts, and
the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in
remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine
of the fierceness of his wrath.
17:24 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not
17:25 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven,
every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed
God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof
was exceeding great.
18:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the
seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither;
I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that
sitteth upon many waters:
18:2 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.
18:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness:
and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full
of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
18:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,
and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having
a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness
of her fornication:
18:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON
THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
18:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints,
and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw
her, I wondered with great admiration.
18:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?
I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast
that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
18:8 The beast that thou sawest 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
18:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads
are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
18:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one
is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he
must continue a short space.
18:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth,
and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
18:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which
have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings
one hour with the beast.
18:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and
strength unto the beast.
18:14 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.
18:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest,
where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and
nations, and tongues.
18:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,
these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and
naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
18:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will,
and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until
the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,
which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
19:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down
from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened
with his glory.
19:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon
the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation
of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of
every unclean and hateful bird.
19:3 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.
19:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out
of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and
that ye receive not of her plagues.
19:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered
her iniquities. 19:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you,
and double unto her double according to her works: in the
cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
19:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously,
so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her
heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
19:8 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 God who judgeth her.
19:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication
and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament
for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
19:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying,
Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for
in one hour is thy judgment come.
19:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn
over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
19:12 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,
19:13 And cinnamon, and odours, 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
19:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed
from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are
departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
19:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich
by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment,
weeping and wailing,
19:16 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!
19:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And
every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors,
and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 19:18 And cried
when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city
is like unto this great city!
19:19 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.
19:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles
and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
19:21 And a mighty angel 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.
19:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers,
and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and
no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any
more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard
no more at all in thee;
19:23 And the light of a candle 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 great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all
19:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints,
and of all that were slain upon the earth.
19:25 And after these things I heard a great voice of much
people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory,
and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
19:26 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath
judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her
fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at
19:27 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up
for ever and ever.
19:28 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell
down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen;
20:1 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our
God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small
20:2 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
thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent
20:3 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for
the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself
20:4 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in
fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness
20:5 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are
called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith
unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
20:6 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto
me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy
brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for
the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
20:7 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and
he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in
righteousness he doth judge and make war.
20:8 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.
20:9 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and
his name is called The Word of God.
20:11 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
20:12 And out of his mouth goeth 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
and wrath of Almighty God.
20:13 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,
KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
20:14 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried
with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the
midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto
the supper of the great God;
20:15 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 on them, and the flesh of all men, both
free and bond, both small and great.
20:16 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.
20:17 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet
that wrought 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.
20:18 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that
sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth:
and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
20:19 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the
key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
20:20 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which
is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
20:21 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up,
and set a seal upon 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.
20:22 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment
was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were
beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God,
and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image,
neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in
their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand
20:23 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand
years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
20:24 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:
on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be
priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand
20:25 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall
be loosed out of his prison,
20:26 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
20:27 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 God out of heaven, and devoured them.
20:28 And the devil 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.
20:29 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on
it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and
there was found no place for them.
20:30 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before 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
20:31 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.
20:32 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
20:33 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.
21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first
heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was
no more sea.
21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her
21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold,
the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with
them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall
be with them, and be their God.
21:4 And 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.
21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make
all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words
are true and faithful.
21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst
of the fountain of the water of life freely.
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will
be his God, and he shall be my son.
21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable,
and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters,
and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth
with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
22:1 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which
had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked
with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride,
the Lamb's wife.
22:2 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high
mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem,
descending out of heaven from God,
22:3 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto
a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as
22:4 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates,
and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon,
which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of
22:5 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on
the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
22:6 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and
in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
22:7 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure
the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
22:8 And the city lieth 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.
22:9 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty
and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is,
of the angel.
22:10 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and
the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
22:11 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;
22:12 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh,
chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth,
a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
22:13 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.
22:14 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty
and the Lamb are the temple of it.
22:15 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the
moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it,
and the Lamb is the light thereof.
22:16 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 honour into it.
22:17 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day:
for there shall be no night there. 22:18 And they shall bring
the glory and honour of the nations into it.
22:19 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that
defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh
a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
22:20 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear
as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the
22:21 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side
of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve
manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the
leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
22:22 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of
God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall
22:23 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in
22:24 And there shall be no night there; and they need no
candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth
them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
22:25 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and
true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel
to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be
22:26 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the
sayings of the prophecy of this book.
22:27 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 angel which shewed me these things.
22:28 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am
thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of
them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
22:29 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy
of this book: for the time is at hand.
22:30 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
22:31 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me,
to give every man according as his work shall be.
22:32 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the
first and the last.
22:33 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.
22:34 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers,
and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh
22:35 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these
things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of
David, and the bright and morning star.
22:36 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him
that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
22:37For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of
the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these
things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written
in this book:
22:38 And if any man shall take away from the words of the
book of this prophecy, 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.
22:39 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come
quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
22:40 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
