Revelation 14:9–18:24

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man cworship the beast and his image, and receive chis mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same dshall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is epoured out fwithout mixture into dthe cup of his indignation; and ghe shall be tormented with ghfire and ghbrimstone in the presence of ithe holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And kthe smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and lthey have no rest day nor night, cwho worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth cthe mark of his name. 12 mHere is the patience of the saints: here are nthey that keep the commandments of God, and othe faith of Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, pWrite, qBlessed are the dead rwhich die in the Lord ||sfrom henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, tthat they may rest from their labours; and utheir works do follow them.

14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and vupon the cloud one sat wlike unto the Son of man, xhaving on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came yout of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in zthy sickle, and reap: for athe time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ||ripe. 16 And bhe that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

17 And another angel came cout of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from dthe altar, ewhich had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; ffor her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great gwinepress of the wrath of God. 20 And ghthe winepress was trodden iwithout kthe city, and blood came out of the winepress, even lunto mthe horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred nfurlongs.

15 And I saw aanother sign in heaven, great and marvellous, bseven angels having the seven last plagues; cfor in them is filled up the wrath of God. And I saw as it were da sea of glass emingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over fthe beast, and over fhis image, and over gghis mark, and over hthe number of his name, stand on dthe sea of glass, ihaving the harps of God. And they sing kthe song of Moses lthe servant of God, and mthe song of the Lamb, saying, nGreat and marvellous are thy works, oLord God Almighty; pqjust and qtrue are thy ways, thou King of ||saints. rsWho shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art ptholy: for uall nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy vjudgments are made manifest.

And after that I looked, and, behold, wthe temple of xthe tabernacle of the testimony yin heaven was opened: And bthe seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, zclothed in zzpure and white linen, and ahaving their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of bthe four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven dgolden vials full of the wrath of God, ewho liveth for ever and ever. And fthe temple was filled with smoke gfrom the glory of God, and gfrom his power; and hno man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying ato the seven angels, Go your ways, and bpour out the vials cof the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial dupon the earth; and there fell a noisome and egrievous efsore upon the men gwhich had the mark of the beast, and upon them hwhich worshipped his image.

And the second angel poured out his vial iupon the sea; and iit became as the blood of a dead man: and kevery living soul died in the sea.

And the third angel poured out his vial lupon the rivers and fountains of waters; and mthey became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, nThou art righteous, O Lord, owhich art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For pthey have shed the blood of qsaints and prophets, and rthou hast given them blood to drink; for sthey are worthy. And tI heard another out of uthe altar say, Even so, vLord God wAlmighty, xtrue and nrighteous are thy judgments.

And the fourth angel poured out his vial yupon the sun; and zpower was given unto him ato scorch men with fire. And men were ||bscorched with great heat, and cblasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and dthey repented not eto give him glory.

10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon fthe seat of the beast; and ghis kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 And cblasphemed hthe God of heaven because of their pains and itheir sores, and drepented not of their deeds.

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon jthe great river Euphrates; and kthe water thereof was dried up, that lthe way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three munclean spirits like nfrogs come out of the mouth of othe dragon, and out of the mouth of pthe beast, and out of the mouth of qsthe false prophet. 14 For they are rthe spirits of devils, stworking miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of uthe whole world, vto gather them to the battle of wthat great day of God xAlmighty. 15 Behold, I come yas a thief. zBlessed is he that zwatcheth, and akeepeth his garments, blest he walk naked, and bcthey see dhis shame. 16 And ehe gathered them together into a place called fin the Hebrew tongue gArmageddon.

17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into hthe air; and ithere came a great voice kout of the temple of heaven, from lthe throne, saying, mIt is done. 18 And nthere were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and othere was a great earthquake, psuch as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And qthe great city was divided rinto three parts, and the cities of sthe nations fell: and qgreat Babylon tcame in remembrance before God, uto give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And vevery island fled away, and vthe mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a wgreat hail out of heaven, every stone xabout the weight of a talent: and men yblasphemed God because of zthe plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

17 And there came aone of aathe seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, aCome hither; bI will shew unto thee the judgment of cthe great whore dthat sitteth upon many waters: eWith whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and fthe inhabitants of the earth ghave been hmade drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away iin the spirit kinto the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a lscarlet coloured beast, full of mnames of blasphemy, mnhaving seven heads and moten horns. And the woman was parrayed in qpurple and lscarlet colour, and decked rwith gold and rprecious stones and spearls, thaving a golden cup in her hand gfull of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, uMYSTERY, gBABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF ||HARLOTS AND vABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw wthe woman hdrunken xwith the blood of the saints, and with the blood of ythe martyrs zof Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee uthe mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath nthe seven heads and oten horns. The beast that thou sawest awas, and is not; and bshall ascend out of cthe bottomless pit, and dgo into perdition: and ethey that dwell on the earth fshall wonder, gwhose names were not written in the book of life gfrom the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And hhere is the mind which hath wisdom. iThe seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And athe beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and dgoeth into perdition. 12 And ikthe ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings lone hour with the beast. 13 These mhave one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These nshall make war with the Lamb, and othe Lamb shall overcome them: for he is pqLord of lords, and prKing of kings: and rrthey that are with him are stcalled, and suchosen, and vfaithful. 15 And he saith unto me, wThe waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are xpeoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And ythe ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, zthese shall hate the whore, and ashall make her desolate and bnaked, and bbshall eat her flesh, and cburn her with fire. 17 For God hath dput in their hearts to fulfil his will, and mto agree, and egive their kingdom unto the beast, funtil the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is gthat great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

18 And after these things I saw aanother angel come down from heaven, having great power; and bthe earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried cmightily with a strong voice, saying,

dBabylon the great is fallen, is fallen,

And is become ethe habitation of devils,

And the hold of fevery foul spirit,

And a cage of gevery unclean and hateful bird.

For hall nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication,

And ithe kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,

And kthe merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the ||abundance of
