Revelation of John 11

The Two Witnesses

Then there was given me a
Lit reed
,
b measuring rod like a staff;
Lit saying
and d someone said, “Get up and measure the
Or sanctuary
temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it.
Lit throw out
Leave out the g court which is outside the
Or sanctuary
temple and do not measure it, for i it has been given to the nations; and they will j tread under foot k the holy city for l forty-two months.
And I will grant authority to my two m witnesses, and they will prophesy for n twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in o sackcloth.” These are the p two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, q fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, r he must be killed in this way. These have the power to s shut up the sky, so that rain will not fall during t the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to u turn them into blood, and v to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.

When they have finished their testimony w the beast that comes up out of the x abyss will y make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the z great city which
Lit spiritually
mystically is called ab Sodom and ac Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
Those from ad the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their dead
Lit body
bodies for three and a half days, and
Lit do not permit
,
ag will not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.
10 And ah those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will ai send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented aj those who dwell on the earth.

11 But after the three and a half days ak the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, al Come up here.” Then they am went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them. 13 And in that hour there was a great an earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell;
Lit names of people, seven thousand
seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and ap gave glory to the aq God of heaven.

14 The second ar woe is past; behold, the third woe is coming quickly.

The Seventh Trumpet— Christ’s Reign Foreseen

15 Then the as seventh angel sounded; and there were at loud voices in heaven, saying,

au The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of av His
I.e. Messiah
Christ; and ax He will reign forever and ever.”
16 And the twenty-four elders, who ay sit on their thrones before God az fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying,

We give You thanks ba O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to bb reign.
18 “And bc the nations were enraged, and bd Your wrath came, and be the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to
Lit give the reward to
reward Your bg bond-servants the prophets and the
Or holy ones
saints and those who fear Your name, bi the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

19 And bj the
Or sanctuary
temple of God which is in heaven was opened; and bl the ark of His covenant appeared in His
Or sanctuary
temple, and there were flashes of bn lightning and sounds and peals of thunder and an earthquake and a bo great
Lit hail
hailstorm.
