1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, to show to his
servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified
it by his angel to his servant John:
1:2 Who bore 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 to you, and
peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from
the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
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. To him that loved
us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
1:6 And has made us kings and priests to God and his Father; to him be
glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1:7 Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they
also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because
of him. Even so, Amen.
1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord,
which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
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 you
see, write in a book, and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia;
to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis,
and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And being turned,
I saw seven golden candlesticks;
1:13 And in the middle of the seven candlesticks one like to the Son of
man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the breasts
with a golden girdle.
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 to 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 shines in his
1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right
hand on me, saying to me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
1:18 I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for ever
more, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
1:19 Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and
the things which shall be hereafter;
1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you 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 you saw are the seven churches.
2:1 To 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 middle of the
seven golden candlesticks;
2:2 I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can
not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are
apostles, and are not, and have found them liars:
2:3 And have borne, and have patience, and for my name's sake have labored,
and have not fainted.
2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your
2:5 Remember therefore from where you are fallen, and repent, and do the
first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick
out of his place, except you repent.
2:6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which
I also hate.
2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches;
To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is
in the middle of the paradise of God.
2:8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things said the
first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich)
and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not,
but are the synagogue of Satan.
2:10 Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the devil
shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you shall
have tribulation ten days: be you faithful to death, and I will give you
a crown of life.
2:11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches;
He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.
2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things said
he which has the sharp sword with two edges;
2:13 I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is:
and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those
days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where
2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that
hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block
before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to
2:15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes,
which thing I hate.
2:16 Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against
them with the sword of my mouth.
2:17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches;
To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will
give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man
knows saving he that receives it.
2:18 And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things said
the Son of God, who has his eyes like to a flame of fire, and his feet
are like fine brass;
2:19 I know your works, and charity, and service, and faith, and your patience,
and your works; and the last to be more than the first.
2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, because you suffer
that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce
my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented
2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery
with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall
know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give
to every one of you according to your works.
2:24 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not
this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak;
I will put on you none other burden.
2:25 But that which you have already hold fast till I come.
2:26 And he that overcomes, and keeps my works to 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 has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
3:1 And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things said he
that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works,
that you have a name that you live, and are dead.
3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready
to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God.
3:3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast,
and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief,
and you shall not know what hour I will come on you.
3:4 You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments;
and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
3:5 He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and
I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess
his name before my Father, and before his angels.
3:6 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things
said he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he
that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
3:8 I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and
no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word,
and have not denied my name.
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 your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
3:10 Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you
from the hour of temptation, which shall come on all the world, to try
them that dwell on the earth.
3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man
take your crown.
3:12 Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and
he shall go no more out: and I will write on him the name of my God, and
the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down
out of heaven from my God: and I will write on him my new name.
3:13 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
3:14 And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things
said the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation
3:15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you
were cold or hot.
3:16 So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will
spew you out of my mouth.
3:17 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need
of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor,
and blind, and naked:
3:18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be
rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of
your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that
you may see.
3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and
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
3:21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even
as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
3:22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to 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 here, and I will show you things which must be
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 on like a jasper and a sardine stone: and
there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like to an emerald.
4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and on the seats
I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they
had on their heads crowns of gold.
4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightning and thunder and voices: and
there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the
seven Spirits of God.
4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like to crystal: and
in the middle of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts
full of eyes before and behind.
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 honor and thanks to him that sat
on the throne, who lives for ever and ever,
4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne,
and worship him that lives for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before
the throne, saying,
4:11 You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for
you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.
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 seals.
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 said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the
tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to
loose the seven seals thereof.
5:6 And I beheld, and, see, in the middle of the throne and of the four
beasts, and in the middle of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain,
having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of 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
on 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 odors, which are the prayers of saints.
5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us
to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and
5:10 And have made us to 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 thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive
power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and
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 honor, and glory, and power, be to him that sits
on the throne, and to 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 lives for ever and ever.
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 to 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 to 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 see 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 middle of the four beasts say, A measure
of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see
you hurt not the oil and the wine.
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 to them over
the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and
with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
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
6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and
true, do you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
6:11 And white robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to
them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow
servants also and their brothers, that should be killed as they were, should
6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, see, there was
a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and
the moon became as blood;
6:13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree casts
her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and
every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
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 slave, 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 sits 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 sea,
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
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 Nephthalim
were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve
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
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
7:9 After this I beheld, and, see, a great multitude, which no man could
number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before
the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in
7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits
on the throne, and to 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
7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and
honor, and power, and might, be to our God for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying to me, What are these which
are arrayed in white robes? and from where came they?
7:14 And I said to him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they
which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made
them white in the blood of the Lamb.
7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and
night in his temple: and he that sits 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 middle of the throne shall feed them,
and shall lead them to 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 to him much incense, that he should offer it with the
prayers of all saints on 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 thunder, and lightning,
and an earthquake.
8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves
8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with
blood, and they were cast on the earth: and the third part of trees was
burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
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 destroyed.
8:10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven,
burning as it were a lamp, and it fell on the third part of the rivers,
and on 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 likewise.
8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the middle of heaven,
saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth
by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which
are yet to sound!
9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven to the
earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
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 on the earth: and to them was
given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
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 foreheads.
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 strikes 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 to horses prepared to battle;
and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were
as the faces of men.
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
9:10 And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their
tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
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
has his name Apollyon.
9:12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
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 brimstone.
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 to 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, nor walk:
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 on his head, and his face was as it were the
sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot
on the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: 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 to me, Seal up those things
which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
10:5 And the angel which I saw stand on the sea and on the earth lifted
up his hand to heaven,
10:6 And swore by him that lives 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 has declared to
his servants the prophets.
10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said,
Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which
stands on the sea and on the earth.
10:9 And I went to the angel, and said to him, Give me the little book.
And he said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly
bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.
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 to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and
nations, and tongues, and kings.
11:1 And there was given me a reed like to a rod: and the angel stood,
saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that
11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it
not; for it is given to the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread
under foot forty and two months.
11:3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy
a thousand two hundred and three score 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 proceeds out of their mouth, and
devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner
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 they will.
11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that
ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall
overcome them, and kill them.
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 on the earth shall rejoice over them, and make
merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets
tormented them that dwelled on the earth.
11:11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered
into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell on them which
11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying to them, Come up
here. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld
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 comes quickly.
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 on their faces, and worshipped God,
11:17 Saying, We give you thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which are, and were,
and are to come; because you have taken to you your great power, and have
11:18 And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time
of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward
to your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your
name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.
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 lightning, and voices,
and thunder, and an earthquake, and great hail.
12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with
the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve
12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to
12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red
dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on 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 to God, and to his throne.
12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared
of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three
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 in heaven.
12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil,
and Satan, which deceives 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 brothers 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 to the death.
12:12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to
the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down
to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.
12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast to 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 the flood.
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 his mouth.
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 on the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of
the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns,
and on his heads the name of blasphemy.
13:2 And the beast which I saw was like to a leopard, and his feet were
as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon
gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
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 the beast.
13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and
they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like to the beast? who is able
to make war with him?
13:5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;
and power was given to him to continue forty and two months.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his
name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
13:7 And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome
them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
13:8 And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, whose names are
not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of
13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
13:10 He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills
with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and
the faith of the saints.
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had
two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
13:12 And he excercises all the power of the first beast before him, and
causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose deadly wound was healed.
13:13 And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven
on the earth in the sight of men,
13:14 And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles
which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that
dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which
had the wound by a sword, and did live.
13:15 And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the
image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not
worship the image of the beast should be killed.
13:16 And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and
bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
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 has understanding count the number of
the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred
three score and six.
14:1 And I looked, and, see, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him
an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in
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 wherever he goes. These were redeemed
from among men, being the first fruits to 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 middle of heaven, having the everlasting
gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation,
and kindred, and tongue, and people,
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 Lamb:
14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and
they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and
whoever receives the mark of his name.
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 to me, Write, Blessed are
the dead which die in the Lord from now on: Yes, said the Spirit, that
they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and on the cloud one sat
like to the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand
a sharp sickle.
14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice
to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the
time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
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 your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth;
for her grapes are fully ripe.
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 wine press of the wrath of
14:20 And the wine press was trodden without the city, and blood came out
of the wine press, even to the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand
and six hundred furlongs.
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 your works, Lord God Almighty;
just and true are your ways, you King of saints.
15:4 Who shall not fear you, O Lord, and glorify your name? for you only
are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments
are made manifest.
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
15:7 And one of the four beasts gave to the seven angels seven golden vials
full of the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever.
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 fulfilled.
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 on the earth.
16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there
fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast,
and on them which worshipped his image.
16:3 And the second angel poured out his vial on the sea; and it became
as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial on the rivers and fountains
of waters; and they became blood.
16:5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, O Lord,
which are, and were, and shall be, because you have judged thus.
16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have
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 your judgments.
16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial on the sun; and power was
given to him to scorch men with fire.
16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of
God, which has power over these plagues: and they repented not to give
16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial on the seat of the beast;
and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for
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 on 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
to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the
battle of that great day of God Almighty.
16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps
his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue
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 lightning; and there was
a great earthquake, such as was not since men were on 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 to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
16:21 And there fell on 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.
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,
and talked with me, saying to me, Come here; I will show to you the judgment
of the great whore that sits on many waters:
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 on a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having
seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked
with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand
full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
17:5 And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
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
17:7 And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell you the
mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the
seven heads and ten horns.
17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the
bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth
shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the
foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not,
and yet is.
17:9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains,
on which the woman sits.
17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other
is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is
of the seven, and goes into perdition.
17:12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received
no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the
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 said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits,
are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
17:16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the
whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh,
and burn her with fire.
17:17 For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree,
and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
17:18 And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns 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 his glory.
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 you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not
of her plagues.
18:5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double to her double according
to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double.
18:7 How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much
torment and sorrow give her: for she said in her heart, I sit a queen,
and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
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 judges her.
18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived
deliciously with her, shall mourn her, and lament for her, when they shall
see the smoke of her burning,
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 your judgment
18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for
no man buys 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 odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine,
and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses,
and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
18:14 And the fruits that your soul lusted after are departed from you,
and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from you, and
you shall find them no more at all.
18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall
stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
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,
18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nothing. And every shipmaster,
and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea,
stood afar off,
18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city
is like to 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
18:20 Rejoice over her, you heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets;
for God has 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 you; and no craftsman, of whatever craft
he be, shall be found any more in you; and the sound of a millstone shall
be heard no more at all in you;
18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and
the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at
all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by
your sorceries were all nations deceived.
18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of
all that were slain on the earth.
19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven,
saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, to the Lord
19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great
whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged
the blood of his servants at her hand.
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; Alleluia.
19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you
his servants, and you that fear him, both small and great.
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 thunder, saying, Alleluia:
for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.
19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage
of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.
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 of saints.
19:9 And he said to me, Write, Blessed are they which are called to the
marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings
19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See you
do it not: I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers that have the
testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit
19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat
on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge
and make war.
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 he himself.
19:13 And he was clothed with a clothing dipped in blood: and his name
is called The Word of God.
19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him on white horses,
clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
19:15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite
the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the
wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
19:16 And he has on his clothing 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 middle of heaven, Come and
gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God;
19:18 That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and
the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit
on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
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
19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that worked
miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the
mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were
cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat on the
horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled
with their flesh.
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
on him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to
them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of
Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image, neither had received his mark on their foreheads, or
in their hands; and they lived and reigned with 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 has part in the first resurrection: on
such the second death has 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 sea.
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
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 works.
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
20:15 And whoever 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 husband.
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 on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And he said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
21:6 And he said to me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning
and the end. I will give to him that is thirsty of the fountain of the
water of life freely.
21:7 He that overcomes 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 fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have
their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the
21:9 And there came to me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials
full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come here,
I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.
21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain,
and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven
21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like to a stone most precious,
even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
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 lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth:
and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs.
The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
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 to 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, chrysolyte;
the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh,
a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
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
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 honor 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 honor of the nations into it.
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles,
neither whatever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are
written in the Lamb's book of life.
22:1 And he showed 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 middle of the street of it, and on either side of the river,
was there the tree of life, which bore twelve manner of fruits, and yielded
her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing
of the nations.
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 their foreheads.
22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither
light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light: and they shall reign
for ever and ever.
22:6 And he said to me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord
God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show to his servants the things
which must shortly be done.
22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps 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 showed
me these things.
22:9 Then said he to me, See you do it not: for I am your fellow servant,
and of your brothers the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of
this book: worship God.
22:10 And he said to 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 holy still.
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
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 fornicators, and murderers,
and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.
22:16 I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the
churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and
22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say,
Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take
the water of life freely.
22:18 For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of
this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the
plagues that are written in this book:
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 testifies these things said, Surely I come quickly. Amen.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
