Revelation of John 14
The Lamb and the 144,000 on Mount Zion1 Then I looked, and behold a the Lamb was standing on b Mount Zion, and with Him c one hundred and forty-four thousand, having d His name and the e name of His Father written f on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like g the sound of many waters and like the h sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of i harpists playing on their harps. 3 And they ▼
▼ Two early mss read sing something like a new songsang k a new song before the throne and before the l four living creatures and the m elders; and n no one could learn the song except the o one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been p purchased from the earth. 4 q These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they ▼
▼ Lit are chaste menhave kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who s follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been t purchased from among men u as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. 5 And v no lie was found in their mouth; they are w blameless.
Vision of the Angel with the Gospel6 And I saw another angel flying in x midheaven, having y an eternal gospel to preach to z those who ▼
▼ Lit sitlive on the earth, and to ab every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 and he said with a loud voice ac “Fear God, and ad give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who ae made the heaven and the earth and sea and af springs of waters.” 8 And another angel, a second one, followed, saying ▼
▼ Lit Babylon...fell, fell, she who, ah “Fallen, fallen is ai Babylon the great, she who has aj made all the nations drink of the ak wine of the ▼
▼ Or wrathpassion of her immorality.”
Doom for Worshipers of the Beast9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone am worships the beast and his an image, and receives a ao mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the ap wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed ▼
▼ Lit unmixed; in ancient times wine was usually diluted with waterin full strength ar in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with as fire and ▼
▼ I.e. burning sulphurbrimstone in the presence of the au holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 “And the av smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; aw they have no rest day and night, those who ax worship the beast and his ay image, and ▼
▼ Lit if anyonewhoever receives the ba mark of his name.” 12 Here is bb the ▼
▼ Or steadfastnessperseverance of the ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints who be keep the commandments of God and ▼
▼ Lit the faith of, bg their faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Write, ‘ bh Blessed are the dead who bi die in the Lord from now on!’” “Yes,” bj says the Spirit, “so that they may bk rest from their labors, for their bl deeds follow with them.”
The Reapers14 Then I looked, and behold, a bm white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one bn like ▼
▼ Or the Son of Mana son of man, having a golden bp crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15 And another angel bq came out of the ▼
▼ Or sanctuarytemple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud ▼
▼ Lit Send forth, bt “Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the bu harvest of the earth ▼
▼ Lit has become dryis ripe.” 16 Then He who sat on the cloud ▼
▼ Lit castswung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel bx came out of the ▼
▼ Or sanctuarytemple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel bz the one who has power over fire, came out from ca the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying ▼
▼ Lit Send forth, cc “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters ▼
▼ Lit offrom the vine of the earth ce because her grapes are ripe.” 19 So the angel ▼
▼ Lit castswung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into cg the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And ch the wine press was trodden ci outside the city, and cj blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, ▼
