Revelation of John 7

CHAPTER 7

Four Angels

And after this, I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that they should not blow wind upon the earth, nor upon the sea, nor upon any tree. And I saw another angel having ascended from the rising of the sun, having the seal of the living God. And he cried out [2voice 1with a great] to the four angels, to the ones whom it was given to them to injure the earth and the sea, saying, Injure not the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, until we seal the bondmen of our God upon their foreheads.

144,000 Sealed

And I heard the numbers of the ones having been sealed -- a hundred and forty four thousand having been sealed, from out of every tribe of the sons of Israel. From out of the tribe of Judah -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Reuben -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Gad -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Asher -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Naphtali -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Manasseh -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Simeon -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Levi -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Issachar -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe Zebulun -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Joseph -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon; from out of the tribe of Benjamin -- twelve thousand having been set seal upon.

A Great Multitude from the Great Affliction

After these things I saw, and behold, [2multitude 1a great] which [3to count 1no one 2was able] from out of every nation, and tribes, and peoples, and languages, standing before the throne, and before the lamb, wearing [2robes 1white], and palms in their hands. 10 And they cry out [2voice 1a great], saying, Deliverance to our God, to the one sitting upon the throne, and to the lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and the elders, and the four living creatures. And they fell before the throne upon their faces, and they did obeisance to God, 12 saying, Amen; the blessing, and the glory, and the wisdom, and the thankfulness, and the honor, and the power, and the strength to our God into the eons of the eons. Amen. 13 And answered one of the elders, saying to me, These wearing the [2robes 1white], who are they, and from where came they? 14 And I said to him, O my Lord, you know. And he said to me, These are the ones coming from out of the [2affliction 1great], and they washed their robes, and whitened them in the blood of the lamb. 15 Because of this they are before the throne of God, and they serve to him day and night in his temple; and the one sitting upon the throne shall encamp over them. 16 They shall not hunger any more, nor thirst any more, nor in any way shall [3fall 4upon 5them 1the 2sun], nor any sweltering heat. 17 For the lamb, the one in the midst of the throne, shall tend them. And he shall guide them unto [3of life 1springs 2of waters]. And [2will wipe away 1God] every tear from their eyes.
