And I saw an angel come down from heaven, ahaving the key of bthe bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on cthe dragon, dthat old serpent, which is ethe Devil, and fSatan, and gbound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into bthe bottomless pit, and shut him up, and hset a seal upon him, that dihe should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw kthrones, and lthey sat upon them, and mjudgment was given unto them: and I saw nthe souls of othem that were beheaded for pthe witness of Jesus, and for pthe word of God, and qwhich had not worshipped the beast, neither rhis image, neither shad received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and treigned with Christ ua thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead vlived not again until uthe thousand years were finished. This is wthe first resurrection. 6 xBlessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such ythe second death hath no power, but they shall be zpriests of God and of Christ, and tshall reign with him ua thousand years.
