of St. John the Divine
1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to
show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
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 reads, 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.
1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me
a great voice, as of a trumpet,
1:11 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.
1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being
turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
1:13 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.
1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white
as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
1:16 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 shineth in his strength.
1:17 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:
1:18 I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am
alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of
1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which
are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou saw 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 saw are the seven churches.
2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things
said he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who
walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2:2 I know thy works, and thy labor, 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
2:3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake
hast labored, and hast not fainted.
2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou
hast left thy first love.
2:5 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
2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hates the deeds of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto
the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the
tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These
things says the first and the last, which was dead, and is
2:9 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.
2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shall 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.
2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These
things says he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
2:13 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.
2:14 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 stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; To him that over cometh 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
2:18 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;
2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and
thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the
2:20 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.
2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she
2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit
adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of
2:23 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
2:24 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 burden.
2:25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
2:26 And he that over cometh, and keepeth my works unto the end,
to him will I give power over the nations:
2:27 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.
2:28 And I will give him the morning star.
2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
3:1 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.
3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that
are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before
3:3 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.
3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled
their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they
3:5 He that over cometh, 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
3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These
things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the
key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and
shutteth, and no man openeth;
3:8 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.
3:9 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.
3:10 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.
3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast,
that no man take thy crown.
3:12 Him that over cometh 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.
3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches.
3:14 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;
3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I
would thou wert cold or hot.
3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor
hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
3:17 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:
3:18 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 eye salve, that thou mayest see.
3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous
therefore, and repent.
3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me.
3:21 To him that over cometh 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.
3:22 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 honor and
power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.
5:1 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
5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who
is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and
to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5:5 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.
5:6 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 the earth.
5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
that sat upon the throne.
5:8 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.
5:9 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;
5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we
shall reign on the earth.
5:11 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 of
5:12 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.
5:13 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.
5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four [and] twenty
elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and
6:1 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.
6:2 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.
6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
beast say, Come and see.
6:4 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.
6:5 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.
6:6 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.
6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of
the fourth beast say, Come and see.
6:8 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
6:9 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:
6:10 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?
6:11 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 fellow servants also and their brethren,
that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
6:12 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;
6:13 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
6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their
6:15 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;
6:16 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:
6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be
able to stand?
7:1 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.
7:2 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
7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
7:4 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.
7:5 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.
7:6 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.
7:7 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.
7:8 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.
7:9 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;
7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
7:11 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,
7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our
God for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are
these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
7:14 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
7:15 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.
7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:17 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.
8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence
in heaven about the space of half an hour.
8:2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to
them were given seven trumpets.
8:3 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.
8:4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers
of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
8:5 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.
8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared
themselves to sound.
8:7 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
8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great
mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third
part of the sea became blood;
8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea,
and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were
8:10 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;
8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third
part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the
waters, because they were made bitter.
8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun
was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part
of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and
the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night
8:13 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!
9:1 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
9:2 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.
9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and
unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have
9:4 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
9:5 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.
9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find
it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
9:7 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.
9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were
as the teeth of lions.
9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron;
and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of
many horses running to battle.
9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were
stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five
9:11 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.
9:12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more
9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the
four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the
four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
9:15 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.
9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two
hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
9:17 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
9:18 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.
9:19 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.
9:20 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,
9:21 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 the
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.
11:1 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.
11:2 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.
11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they
shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth.
11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
11:5 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.
11:6 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
11:7 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.
11:8 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.
11:9 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.
11:10 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
11:11 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.
11:12 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.
11:13 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.
11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe
11:15 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.
11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on
their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
11:17 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.
11:18 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.
11:19 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
12:1 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:
12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and
pained to be delivered.
12:3 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.
12:4 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.
12:5 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.
12:6 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.
12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought
against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more
12:9 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 with him.
12:10 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.
12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the
word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto
12:12 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.
12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth,
he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
12:14 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.
12:15 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
12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her
mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of
12:17 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.
13:1 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 of blasphemy.
13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his
feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth
of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and
13:3 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
13:4 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?
13:5 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.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in
13:7 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.
13:8 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.
13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
13:10 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.
13:11 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.
13:12 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.
13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come
down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
13:14 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
13:15 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
13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor,
free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in
13:17 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.
13:18 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.
14:1 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.
14:2 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:
14:3 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.
14:4 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
first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.
14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without
fault before the throne of God.
14:6 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
14:7 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 of waters.
14:8 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.
14:9 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,
14:10 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
14:11 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
14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that
keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
14:13 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.
14:14 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.
14:15 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.
14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the
earth; and the earth was reaped.
14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in
heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
14:18 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
14:19 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.
14:20 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.
15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous,
seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is
filled up the wrath of God.
15:2 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.
15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the
song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works,
Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of
15:4 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.
15:5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the
tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
15:6 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.
15:7 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
15:8 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
16:1 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.
16:2 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 his
16:3 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.
16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and
fountains of waters; and they became blood.
16:5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art
righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because
thou hast judged thus.
16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and
thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God
Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and
power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
16:9 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.
16:10 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,
16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains
and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
16:12 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.
16:13 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.
16:14 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
16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth,
and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his
16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the
Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
16:17 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.
16:18 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.
16:19 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.
16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not
16:21 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
17:1 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:
17:2 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.
17:3 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.
17:4 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
17:5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF
17:6 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.
17:7 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.
17:8 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 yet is.
17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads
are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
17:10 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.
17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth,
and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
17:12 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.
17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and
strength unto the beast.
17:14 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.
17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where
the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations,
17:16 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.
17:17 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.
17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which
reigneth over the kings of the earth.
18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from
heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with
18:2 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.
18:3 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.
18:4 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.
18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath
remembered her iniquities.
18:6 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.
18:7 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.
18:8 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.
18:9 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,
18:10 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.
18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over
her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
18:12 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,
18:13 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 of men.
18:14 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.
18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by
her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping
18:16 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!
18:17 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,
18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying,
What city is like unto this great city!
18:19 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.
18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles
and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
18:21 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.
18:22 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;
18:23 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 nations
18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints,
and of all that were slain upon the earth.
19:1 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:
19:2 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 her
19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for
ever and ever.
19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell
down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen;
19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God,
all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and
19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and
as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty
thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent
19:7 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
19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine
linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness
19:9 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.
19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto
me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy
brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the
testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
19:11 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.
19:12 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
19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and
his name is called The Word of God.
19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
19:15 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.
19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name
written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
19:17 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;
19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of
captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses,
and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all [men, both]
free and bond, both small and great.
19:19 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.
19:20 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.
19:21 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.
20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is
the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
20:3 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.
20:4 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 years.
20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand
years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
20:6 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 years.
20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be
loosed out of his prison,
20:8 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
20:9 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.
20:10 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.
20:11 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.
20:12 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
20:13 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.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This
is the second death.
20:15 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
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
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 over cometh 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.
21:9 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
21:10 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,
21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light [was] like unto a
stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as
21:12 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 Israel:
21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the
south three gates; and on the west three gates.
21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in
them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure
the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
21:16 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.
21:17 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.
21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and
the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
21:19 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;
21:20 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
21:21 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.
21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and
the Lamb are the temple of it.
21:23 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.
21:24 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.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for
there shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations
21:27 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.
22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as
crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
22:2 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.
22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and
of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in
22:5 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.
22:6 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 done.
22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is
he that keepeth the
sayings of the prophecy of this book.
22:8 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.
22:9 Then saith he unto me, See [hou do it not: for I am thy
fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them
which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy
of this book: for the time is at hand.
22:11 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
22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me,
to give every man according as his work shall be.
22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first
and the last.
22:14 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.
22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers,
and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a
22:16 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.
22:17 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.
22:18 For 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
22:19 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.
22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come
quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
