And after these things I heard a great voice of a great
multitude in the heaven, saying, 'Alleluia! the salvation, and the glory, and
the honour, and the power, is to the Lord our God;
because true and righteous are His judgments, because
He did judge the great whore who did corrupt the earth in her whoredom, and He
did avenge the blood of His servants at her hand;'
and a second time they said, 'Alleluia;' and her smoke doth
come up -- to the ages of the ages!
And fall down did the elders -- the twenty and four -- and
the four living creatures, and they did bow before God who is sitting upon the
throne, saying, 'Amen, Alleluia.'
And a voice out of the throne did come forth, saying,
'Praise our God, all ye His servants, and those fearing Him, both the small and
and I heard as the voice of a great multitude, and as the
voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying,
'Alleluia! because reign did the Lord God -- the Almighty!
may we rejoice and exult, and give the glory to Him, because
come did the marriage of the Lamb, and his wife did make herself ready;
and there was given to her that she may be arrayed with fine
linen, pure and shining, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the
And he saith to me, 'Write: Happy are they who to the
supper of the marriage of the Lamb have been called;' and he saith to me,
'These are the true words of God;'
and I fell before his feet, to bow before him, and he saith
to me, 'See -- not! fellow servant of thee am I, and of thy brethren, those
having the testimony of Jesus; bow before God, for the testimony of Jesus is
the spirit of the prophecy.'
And I saw the heaven having been opened, and lo, a white
horse, and he who is sitting upon it is called Faithful and True, and in
righteousness doth he judge and war,
and his eyes are as a flame of fire, and upon his
head are many diadems -- having a name written that no one hath known,
and he is arrayed with a garment covered with blood, and his
name is called, The Word of God.
And the armies in the heaven were following him upon white
horses, clothed in fine linen -- white and pure;
and out of his mouth doth proceed a sharp sword, that with
it he may smite the nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he
doth tread the press of the wine of the wrath and the anger of God the
and he hath upon the garment and upon his thigh the name
written, 'King of kings, and Lord of lords.'
And I saw one messenger standing in the sun, and he cried, a
great voice, saying to all the birds that are flying in mid-heaven, 'Come and
be gathered together to the supper of the great God,
that ye may eat flesh of kings, and flesh of chiefs of
thousands, and flesh of strong men, and flesh of horses, and of those sitting
on them, and the flesh of all -- freemen and servants -- both small and great.'
And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their
armies, having been gathered together to make war with him who is sitting upon
the horse, and with his army;
and the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who
did the signs before him, in which he led astray those who did receive the mark
of the beast, and those who did bow before his image; living they were cast --
the two -- to the lake of the fire, that is burning with brimstone;
and the rest were killed with the sword of him who is
sitting on the horse, which sword is proceeding out of his mouth, and
all the birds were filled out of their flesh.
