14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen,l whitem and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp swordn with which to strike downo the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”a p He treads the winepressq of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:r
king of kings and lord of lords.s
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birdst flying in midair,u “Come,v gather together for the great supper of God,w 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people,x free and slave,y great and small.”z
19 Then I saw the beasta and the kings of the earthb and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horsec and his army. 20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophetd who had performed the signse on its behalf.f With these signs he had deludedg those who had received the mark of the beasth and worshiped its image.i The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lakej of burning sulfur.k 21 The rest were killed with the swordl coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse,m and all the birdsn gorged themselves on their flesh.
