Revelation of John 7:9-14

A Great Multitude from Every Nation

9After this I looked, and behold j  a great multitude that no one could number k  from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb l  clothed in white robes, with m  palm branches in their hands, 10and crying out with a loud voice n  Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and o  the four living creatures, and they p  fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 q  saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

13Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these r  clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of s  the great tribulation. t  They have washed their robes and u  made them white v  in the blood of the Lamb.
