Book 63 – 2 John
63:001:001 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in
the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known
63:001:002 For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with
us for ever.
63:001:003 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and
from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth
63:001:004 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in
truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
63:001:005 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new
commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the
beginning, that we love one another.
63:001:006 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is
the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye
should walk in it.
63:001:007 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not
that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and
63:001:008 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we
have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
63:001:009 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of
Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of
Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
63:001:010 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine,
receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
63:001:011 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil
63:001:012 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with
paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to
face, that our joy may be full.
63:001:013 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
Book 64 – 3 John
64:001:001 The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the
64:001:002 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and
be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
64:001:003 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified
of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the
64:001:004 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in
64:001:005 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the
brethren, and to strangers;
64:001:006 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church:
whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly
sort, thou shalt do well:
64:001:007 Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking
nothing of the Gentiles.
64:001:008 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be
fellowhelpers to the truth.
64:001:009 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have
the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
64:001:010 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he
doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not
content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the
brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out
of the church.
64:001:011 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is
good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil
hath not seen God.
64:001:012 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth
itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our
record is true.
64:001:013 I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen
write unto thee:
64:001:014 But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face
to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the
friends by name.
Book 65 – Jude
65:001:001 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to
them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in
Jesus Christ, and called:
65:001:002 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
65:001:003 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the
common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and
exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith
which was once delivered unto the saints.
65:001:004 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before
of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the
grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only
Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
65:001:005 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew
this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the
land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
65:001:006 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left
their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains
under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
65:001:007 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like
manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after
strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire.
65:001:008 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise
dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
65:001:009 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he
disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him
a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
65:001:010 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but
what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things
they corrupt themselves.
65:001:011 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran
greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in
the gainsaying of Core.
65:001:012 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast
with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are
without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit
withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
65:001:013 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame;
wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness
65:001:014 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these,
saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his
65:001:015 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are
ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have
ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which
ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
65:001:016 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own
lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having
men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
65:001:017 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before
of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
65:001:018 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last
time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
65:001:019 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the
65:001:020 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy
faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
65:001:021 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of
our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
65:001:022 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
65:001:023 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire;
hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
65:001:024 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to
present you faultless before the presence of his glory with
65:001:025 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty,
dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Book66 – Revelation
66:001:001 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to
shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant
66:001:002 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of
Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
66:001:003 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of
this prophecy, and keep those things which are written
therein: for the time is at hand.
66:001:004 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 his
66:001:005 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,
66:001:006 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to
him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
66:001:007 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.
66:001:008 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the
Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the
66:001:009 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.
66:001:010 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a
great voice, as of a trumpet,
66:001:011 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.
66:001:012 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being
turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
66:001:013 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.
66:001:014 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;
and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
66:001:015 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
66:001:016 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth
went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the
sun shineth in his strength.
66:001:017 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:
66:001:018 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for
evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
66:001:019 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which
are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
66:001:020 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right
hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are
the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks
which thou sawest are the seven churches.
66:002:001 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things
saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who
walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
66:002:002 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how
thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried
them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found
66:002:003 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast
laboured, and hast not fainted.
66:002:004 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast
left thy first love.
66:002:005 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
66:002:006 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the
Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
66:002:007 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the
tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
66:002:008 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things
saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
66:002:009 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.
66:002:010 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the
devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be
tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou
faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
66:002:011 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
66:002:012 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things
saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
66:002:013 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.
66:002:014 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there
them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to
cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
66:002:015 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
66:002:016 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight
against them with the sword of my mouth.
66:002:017 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the
hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the
stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that
66:002:018 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;
66:002:019 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy
patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the
66:002:020 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.
66:002:021 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she
66:002:022 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit
adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent
of their deeds.
66:002:023 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches
shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts:
and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
66:002:024 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.
66:002:025 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
66:002:026 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to
him will I give power over the nations:
66:002:027 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
66:002:028 And I will give him the morning star.
66:002:029 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:001 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.
66:003:002 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are
ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before
66:003:003 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.
66:003:004 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled
their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they
66:003:005 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white
raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of
life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before
66:003:006 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:007 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;
66:003:008 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.
66:003:009 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.
66:003:010 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.
66:003:011 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that
no man take thy crown.
66:003:012 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my
God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him
the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which
is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God:
and I will write upon him my new name.
66:003:013 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:014 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;
66:003:015 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot.
66:003:016 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I
will spue thee out of my mouth.
66:003:017 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:
66:003:018 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou
mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be
clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
66:003:019 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore,
66:003:020 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.
66:003:021 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my
throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my
Father in his throne.
66:003:022 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:004:001 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.
66:004:002 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was
set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
66:004:003 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.
66:004:004 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.
66:004:005 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.
66:004:006 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.
66:004:007 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.
66:004:008 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.
66:004:009 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him
that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
66:004:010 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,
66:004:011 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and
power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.
66:005:001 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
66:005:002 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is
worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
66:005:003 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
66:005:004 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and
to read the book, neither to look thereon.
66:005:005 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.
66:005:006 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.
66:005:007 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
that sat upon the throne.
66:005:008 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.
66:005:009 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;
66:005:010 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall
reign on the earth.
66:005:011 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
66:005:012 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.
66:005:013 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.
66:005:014 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders
fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
66:006:001 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.
66:006:002 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.
66:006:003 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
beast say, Come and see.
66:006:004 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.
66:006:005 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.
66:006:006 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.
66:006:007 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of
the fourth beast say, Come and see.
66:006:008 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat
on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was
given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill
with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the
beasts of the earth.
66:006:009 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:
66:006:010 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?
66:006:011 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was
said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season,
until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that
should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
66:006:012 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;
66:006:013 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
66:006:014 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
66:006:015 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;
66:006:016 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:
66:006:017 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able
66:007:001 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.
66:007:002 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
66:007:003 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their
66:007:004 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.
66:007:005 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.
66:007:006 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
66:007:007 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.
66:007:008 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.
66:007:009 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;
66:007:010 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
66:007:011 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,
66:007:012 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our
God for ever and ever. Amen.
66:007:013 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these
which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
66:007:014 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
66:007:015 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.
66:007:016 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
66:007:017 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.
66:008:001 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in
heaven about the space of half an hour.
66:008:002 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them
were given seven trumpets.
66:008:003 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.
66:008:004 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of
the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
66:008:005 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.
66:008:006 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared
themselves to sound.
66:008:007 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
66:008:008 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;
66:008:009 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and
had life, died; and the third part of the ships were
66:008:010 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;
66:008:011 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.
66:008:012 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
66:008:013 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!
66:009:001 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 bottomless
66:009:002 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.
66:009:003 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and
unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have
66:009:004 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
66:009:005 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.
66:009:006 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it;
and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
66:009:007 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.
66:009:008 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were
as the teeth of lions.
66:009:009 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.
66:009:010 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings
in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
66:009:011 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.
66:009:012 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more
66:009:013 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four
horns of the golden altar which is before God,
66:009:014 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the
four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
66:009:015 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.
66:009:016 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred
thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
66:009:017 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
66:009:018 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
66:009:019 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.
66:009:020 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
66:009:021 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their
sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
66:010:001 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 fire:
66:010:002 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,
66:010:003 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when
he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
66:010:004 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.
66:010:005 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the
earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
66:010:006 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:
66:010:007 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.
66:010:008 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
66:010:009 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.
66:010:010 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.
66:010:011 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many
peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
66:011:001 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.
66:011:002 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.
66:011:003 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall
prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed
66:011:004 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
66:011:005 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.
66:011:006 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
66:011:007 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.
66:011:008 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.
66:011:009 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.
66:011:010 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 earth.
66:011:011 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.
66:011:012 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.
66:011:013 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.
66:011:014 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh
66:011:015 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.
66:011:016 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their
seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
66:011:017 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.
66:011:018 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.
66:011:019 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen
in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were
lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake,
and great hail.
66:012:001 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:
66:012:002 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and
pained to be delivered.
66:012:003 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.
66:012:004 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.
66:012:005 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.
66:012:006 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.
66:012:007 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought
against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
66:012:008 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in
66:012:009 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
66:012:010 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.
66:012:011 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the
word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto
66:012:012 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.
66:012:013 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he
persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
66:012:014 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.
66:012:015 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
66:012:016 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her
mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of
66:012:017 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.
66:013:001 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.
66:013:002 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
66:013:003 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
66:013:004 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?
66:013:005 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.
66:013:006 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme
his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
66:013:007 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.
66:013:008 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.
66:013:009 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
66:013:010 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.
66:013:011 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.
66:013:012 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.
66:013:013 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down
from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
66:013:014 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of
those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the
beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they
should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a
sword, and did live.
66:013:015 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
66:013:016 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their
66:013:017 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.
66:013:018 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.
66:014:001 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.
66:014:002 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:
66:014:003 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.
66:014:004 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are
virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he
goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the
firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
66:014:005 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without
fault before the throne of God.
66:014:006 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
66:014:007 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.
66:014:008 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.
66:014:009 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,
66:014:010 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:
66:014:011 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:
and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and
his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
66:014:012 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep
the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
66:014:013 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.
66:014:014 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.
66:014:015 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.
66:014:016 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the
earth; and the earth was reaped.
66:014:017 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven,
he also having a sharp sickle.
66:014:018 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
66:014:019 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.
66:014:020 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.
66:015:001 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven
angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up
the wrath of God.
66:015:002 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.
66:015:003 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the
song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works,
Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of
66:015:004 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.
66:015:005 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the
tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
66:015:006 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.
66:015:007 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
66:015:008 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
66:016:001 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.
66:016:002 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
66:016:003 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.
66:016:004 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and
fountains of waters; and they became blood.
66:016:005 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O
Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast
66:016:006 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou
hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
66:016:007 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God
Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
66:016:008 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and
power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
66:016:009 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.
66:016:010 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,
66:016:011 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and
their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
66:016:012 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.
66:016:013 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.
66:016:014 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 Almighty.
66:016:015 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and
keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his
66:016:016 And he gathered them together into a place called in the
Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
66:016:017 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.
66:016:018 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.
66:016:019 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.
66:016:020 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
66:016:021 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
66:017:001 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:
66:017:002 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.
66:017:003 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.
66:017:004 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
66:017:005 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE
GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
66:017:006 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.
66:017:007 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.
66:017:008 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.
66:017:009 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are
seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
66:017:010 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.
66:017:011 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and
is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
66:017:012 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.
66:017:013 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength
unto the beast.
66:017:014 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.
66:017:015 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the
whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and
66:017:016 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.
66:017:017 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.
66:017:018 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which
reigneth over the kings of the earth.
66:018:001 And after these things I saw another angel come down from
heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with
66:018:002 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.
66:018:003 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.
66:018:004 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.
66:018:005 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered
66:018:006 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.
66:018:007 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.
66:018:008 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.
66:018:009 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,
66:018:010 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.
66:018:011 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her;
for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
66:018:012 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,
66:018:013 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.
66:018:014 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.
66:018:015 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her,
shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and
66:018:016 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!
66:018:017 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,
66:018:018 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What
city is like unto this great city!
66:018:019 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.
66:018:020 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and
prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
66:018:021 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
66:018:022 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;
66:018:023 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
66:018:024 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and
of all that were slain upon the earth.
66:019:001 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:
66:019:002 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
66:019:003 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever
66:019:004 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down
and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen;
66:019:005 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God,
all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and
66:019:006 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
66:019:007 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
66:019:008 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.
66:019:009 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.
66:019:010 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me,
See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy
brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for
the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
66:019:011 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.
66:019:012 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
66:019:013 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his
name is called The Word of God.
66:019:014 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white
horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
66:019:015 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.
66:019:016 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,
KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
66:019:017 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;
66:019:018 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.
66:019:019 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.
66:019:020 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.
66:019:021 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.
66:020:001 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
66:020:002 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the
Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
66:020:003 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.
66:020:004 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
66:020:005 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand
years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
66:020:006 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.
66:020:007 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed
out of his prison,
66:020:008 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.
66:020:009 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.
66:020:010 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.
66:020:011 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.
66:020:012 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.
66:020:013 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.
66:020:014 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death.
66:020:015 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.
66:021:001 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
66:021:002 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from
God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her
66:021:003 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.
66:021:004 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
66:021:005 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.
66:021:006 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.
66:021:007 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his
God, and he shall be my son.
66:021:008 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.
66:021:009 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
66:021:010 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,
66:021:011 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone
most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
66:021:012 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:
66:021:013 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the
south three gates; and on the west three gates.
66:021:014 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them
the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
66:021:015 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the
city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
66:021:016 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.
66:021:017 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and
four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of
66:021:018 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city
was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
66:021:019 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;
66:021:020 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
66:021:021 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.
66:021:022 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the
Lamb are the temple of it.
66:021:023 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.
66:021:024 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.
66:021:025 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there
shall be no night there.
66:021:026 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into
66:021:027 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.
66:022:001 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.
66:022:002 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.
66:022:003 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:
66:022:004 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their
66:022:005 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.
66:022:006 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.
66:022:007 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings
of the prophecy of this book.
66:022:008 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.
66:022:009 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy
fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them
which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
66:022:010 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of
this book: for the time is at hand.
66:022:011 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
66:022:012 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give
every man according as his work shall be.
66:022:013 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and
66:022:014 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.
66:022:015 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and
murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a
66:022:016 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.
66:022:017 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.
66:022:018 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
66:022:019 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.
66:022:020 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
66:022:021 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
