Revelation of John 14

The Lamb and the 144,000 on Mount Zion

1Then 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. 2And 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. 3And they
Two early mss read sing something like a new song
sang 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 men
have 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.
5And v  no lie was found in their mouth; they are w  blameless.

Vision of the Angel with the Gospel

6And I saw another angel flying in x  midheaven, having y  an eternal gospel to preach to z  those who
Lit sit
live on the earth, and to ab  every nation and tribe and tongue and people;
7and 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.”

8And 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 wrath
passion of her immorality.”

Doom for Worshipers of the Beast

9Then 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, 10he 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 water
in full strength ar  in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with as  fire and
I.e. burning sulphur
brimstone 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 anyone
whoever receives the ba  mark of his name.”
12Here is bb  the
Or steadfastness
perseverance of the
Or holy ones
saints who be  keep the commandments of God and
Lit the faith of
,
bg  their faith in Jesus.

13And 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 Reapers

14Then I looked, and behold, a bm  white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one bn  like
Or the Son of Man
a son of man, having a golden bp  crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.
15And another angel bq  came out of the
Or sanctuary
temple, 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 dry
is ripe.”
16Then He who sat on the cloud
Lit cast
swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.

17And another angel bx  came out of the
Or sanctuary
temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle.
18Then 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 of
from the vine of the earth ce  because her grapes are ripe.”
19So the angel
Lit cast
swung 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.
20And ch  the wine press was trodden ci  outside the city, and cj  blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles,
Lit from
for a distance of
Lit sixteen hundred stadia; a stadion was approx 600 ft
two hundred miles.
