Revelation of John 20

CHAPTER 20

Satan Bound a Thousand Years

And I saw an angel coming down from out of the heaven having the key of the abyss, and [2chain 1a great] in his hand. And he seized the dragon, the [2serpent 1ancient], who is the devil, and Satan, the one misleading the [2inhabitable world 1entire]. And he bound him a thousand years. And he cast him into the abyss, and locked, and set a seal upon him, that he should not mislead [3any more 1the 2nations] until [4be fulfilled 1the 2thousand 3years]. And after these things it is necessary to loose him a little time.

The Thousand Year Reign

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of the ones hewn with an axe on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God, and whoever did not do obeisance to the beast, nor to his image, and did not take the imprint upon their forehead, and upon their hand; and they lived and reigned with the Christ a thousand years. And the rest of the dead did not live until [4should be fulfilled 1the 2thousand 3years]; this is the [2resurrection 1first]. Blessed and holy is the one having part in the [2resurrection 1first]; over these the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Satan Loosed

And whenever [4should be fulfilled 1the 2thousand 3years], [2shall be loosed 1Satan] from out of his prison, and shall come forth to mislead the nations, the ones in the four corners of the earth -- Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war, which the number is as the sand of the sea. And they ascended upon the width of the earth, and encircled the camp of the holy ones, and the city being loved. And [2came down 1fire] from the heaven from God, and it devoured them. 10 And the devil, the one misleading them was cast into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet are. And they shall be tormented day and night into the eons of the eons.

The Great White Throne

11 And I saw [3throne 1a great 2white], and the one sitting upon it, from whose face [6fled 1the 2heaven 3and 4the 5earth], and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. And another scroll was opened, which is the one of life. And [3were judged 1the 2dead] from out of the things being written in the scrolls, according to their works. 13 And [3gave up 1the 2sea] the ones [2in 3her 1dead]; and death and Hades gave up the ones of their dead. And they were judged each according to their works. 14 And death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the [2death 1second] -- the lake of fire. 15 And if any should not be found [2in 3the 4book 5of life 1written] he was cast into the lake of fire.
