Revelation 9:12–14:8

12 yOne woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from zthe four horns of athe golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose bthe four angels which are bound in cthe great river Euphrates. 15 And bthe four angels were loosed, which were prepared ||for dan hour, and efa day, and ga month, and fa year, for to slay ffthe third part of men. 16 And hthe number of the army iof the horsemen were htwo hundred thousand thousand: kand I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and lof jacinth, and brimstone: and mthe heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued nfire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, nby the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet nnrepented not of othe works of their hands, that they should not worship pdevils, and qidols rsof gold, and rssilver, and sbrass, and sstone, and sof wood: rswhich neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their tmurders, nor of their tusorceries, nor of their tvfornication, nor of their thefts.

10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, aclothed with a cloud: and ba rainbow was upon his head, and chis face was as it were the sun, and dhis feet as epillars of fire: And fhe had in his hand a little book open: and ghe set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when ha lion iroareth: and when he had cried, seven jthunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and kI heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, lSeal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and llwrite them not. And the angel which I saw gstand upon the sea and upon the earth mlifted up his hand to heaven, And msware by nhim that liveth for ever and ever, owho created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, pthat there should be time no longer: But qin the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, qqthe mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

And kthe voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take fthe little book which is open in the hand of the angel gwhich standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and reat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and sate it up; and tit was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, umy belly was bitter. 11 And he said unto me, vThou must prophesy again before many wpeoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

11 And there was given me aa reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and bthe altar, and them that worship therein. But cthe dcourt which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto ethe Gentiles: and fthe holy city shall they etread under foot gforty and two months. And ||I will give power unto my two hwitnesses, and hthey shall prophesy gia thousand two hundred and threescore days, kclothed in sackcloth. These are lthe two olive trees, and mthe two candlesticks nstanding before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, ofire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, phe must in this manner be killed. These have power qto shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters rto turn them to blood, and sto smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have finished their ttestimony, uthe beast that ascendeth out of vthe bottomless pit wshall make war against them, and wshall overcome them, and kill them. And their xdead bodies shall lie in the street of ythe great city, which spiritually is called zSodom and aEgypt, bwhere also our Lord was crucified. And they of cthe people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their xdead bodies three days and an half, and dshall not suffer their xdead bodies to be put in graves. 10 And ethey that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and fshall send gifts one to another; because gthese two prophets htormented ethem that dwelt on the earth. 11 And after ithree days and an half kthe Spirit of life from God entered into them, and lthey stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, mCome up hither. And nthey ascended up to heaven oin a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour pwas there a great earthquake, and qthe tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and rgave glory to sthe God of heaven. 14 tThe second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And uthe seventh angel sounded; and vthere were great voices in heaven, saying, wThe kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of xhis Christ; and yhe shall reign for ever and ever. 16 And zthe four and twenty elders, which sat before God zon their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God aAlmighty, bwhich art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and chast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and dthy wrath is come, and ethe time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants eethe prophets, and to the saints, and fthem that fear thy name, fgsmall and great; and shouldest destroy them which ||destroy the earth.

19 And hthe temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple ithe ark of his ktestament: and there lwere lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and man earthquake, and ngreat hail.

12 And there appeared a great ||wonder in heaven; a woman aclothed with bthe sun, and cthe moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of dtwelve stars: And eshe being with child cried, ftravailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another ||wonder in heaven; and behold a great gred hdragon, ihaving seven heads and ijten horns, and seven kcrowns upon his heads. And his tail ldrew mthe third part of the stars of heaven, and ndid cast them to the earth: and hthe dragon stood before othe woman which was ready to be delivered, pfor to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to qrule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was rcaught up unto God, and to his throne. And othe woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there sa thousand two hundred and threescore days.

And there was war in heaven: tMichael and his angels fought against hthe dragon; and the dragon fought and uhis angels, And prevailed not; vneither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great hdragon wwas cast out, xthat old yserpent, called the Devil, and zSatan, yawhich deceiveth bthe whole world: che was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come dsalvation, and ddstrength, and ethe kingdom of our God, and the power of ehis Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, fwhich accused them before our God gday and night. 11 And hthey overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by ithe word of their testimony; and kthey loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore lrejoice, ye heavens, and ye that mdwell in them. nWoe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for othe devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, pbecause he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast qunto the earth, he persecuted rthe woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given stwo wings of a great eagle, tthat she might fly uinto the wilderness, tinto her place, where she is nourished vfor a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water was a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went xto make war with the remnant of her seed, ywhich keep the commandments of God, and zhave ithe testimony of Jesus Christ.

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw aa beast rise up aout of the sea, bhaving seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten bcrowns, and upon his heads the ||name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was clike unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of da bear, and his mouth as the mouth of ea lion: and fthe dragon gave him his power, and ghis seat, and great hauthority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and ihis deadly wound was healed: and kall the world wondered lafter the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave hpower unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, mWho is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him na mouth speaking great …
