Revelation of John 14



1And I saw, and behold, a lamb standing upon mount Zion, and with him a hundred forty four thousand, having his name and the name of his father being written upon their foreheads. 2And I heard a sound from out of the heaven, as a sound [2waters 1of many], and as a sound [2thunder 1of great]; and [2the sound 3which 1I heard] was as harpists harping with their harps. 3And they sing [2ode 1a new] before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders. And no one is able to learn the ode, except the hundred forty four thousand, the ones being bought from the earth. 4These are the ones [3with 4women 1not 2tainted]; [3virgins 1for 2they are]. These are the ones following the lamb where ever he should go. These [2by 3Jesus 1were bought] from men as first-fruit to God, and to the lamb. 5And in their mouth was not found a lie, [3unblemished 1for 2they are].

Judgment on Those Who Receive the Imprint

6And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven having [2good news 1eternal] to announce good news for the ones being settled upon the earth, and unto every nation, and tribe, and language, and people, 7saying with [2voice 1a great], Fear God, and give to him glory! for [4came 1the 2hour 3of his judgment]; and do obeisance to the one having made the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and springs of waters! 8And another angel, a second followed, saying, Is fallen, is fallen, Babylon the great; because [6of the 7wine 8of the 9wrath 10of her harlotry 1she has given 5to drink 2all 3the 4nations]. 9And another angel, a third followed them, saying with [2voice 1a great], If any does obeisance to the beast and its image, and receives an imprint upon his forehead or upon his hand; 10even he shall drink of the wine of the rage of God, the one being mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath; and he shall be tormented by fire and sulphur before the holy angels, and before the lamb. 11And the smoke of their torment [2into 3the eons 4of eons 1ascends]; and they have not rest day and night, the ones doing obeisance to the beast and his image, and if anyone takes the imprint of its name. 12Here [2the 3endurance 4of the 5holy ones 1is]. Here are the ones keeping the commandments of God, and the belief, of the one of Jesus. 13And I heard a voice from out of the heaven saying to me, Write! Blessed are the dead, the ones [2in 3the Lord 1dying] from now on. [3says 4yes 1The 2spirit], for they shall rest from their toils, and their works shall follow after them.

The Angel with the Sickle

14And I saw, and behold, [2cloud 1a white], and upon the cloud sitting was one likened to son of man, having upon his head [2crown 1a golden], and in his hand [2sickle 1a sharp]. 15And another angel came forth from out of the temple, crying out with [2voice 1a great] to the one sitting upon the cloud, Send forth your sickle and reap! for [3came 1the 2hour] to reap, for [5is dried 1the 2harvest 3of the 4earth]. 16And [6put 1the one 2sitting 3upon 4the 5cloud] his sickle unto the earth, and [3was reaped 1the 2earth]. 17And another angel came forth from out of the temple, of the one in the heaven, having also himself [2sickle 1a sharp]. 18And another angel came forth from the altar, having authority over the fire. And he called [2cry 1with a great] to the one having the [2sickle 1sharp], saying, Send forth your [2sickle 1sharp], and gather the vintage of the clusters of grapes of the grapevine of the earth! for [2are ripened 1her grapes]. 19And [3put 1the 2angel] his sickle to the earth, and gathered the vintage -- the grapevine of the earth. And he cast into the wine vat of the rage of the great God. 20And [3was trodden 1the 2wine vat] outside the city. And came forth blood from out of the wine vat as far as the bridle of the horses, from [3stadiums 1a thousand 2six hundred].
