Revelation of John 14

The Lamb and the 144,000 on Mount Zion

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. 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. And 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.
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.
And v no lie was found in their mouth; they are w blameless.

Vision of the Angel with the Gospel

And 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;
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.”

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 wrath
passion of her immorality.”

Doom for Worshipers of the Beast

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 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.”
12 Here 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.

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 Reapers

14 Then 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.
15 And 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.”
16 Then He who sat on the cloud
Lit cast
swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.

17 And another angel bx came out of the
Or sanctuary
temple 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 of
from the vine of the earth ce because her grapes are ripe.”
19 So 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.
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,
Lit from
for a distance of
Lit sixteen hundred stadia; a stadion was approx 600 ft
two hundred miles.
