The Lamb and the 144,000 on Mount Zion

1 Then I looked, and behold, athe Lamb was standing on bMount Zion, and with Him cone hundred and forty-four thousand, having dHis name and the dname of His Father written eon their foreheads.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like athe sound of many waters and like the bsound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of charpists playing on their harps.

3 And they * 1sang aa new song before the throne and before the bfour living creatures and the celders; and dno one could learn the song except the eone hundred and forty-four thousand who had been apurchased from the earth.

4 aThese are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they 1have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who bfollow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been cpurchased from among men das first fruits to God and to the Lamb.

5 And ano lie was found in their mouth; they are bblameless.

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
