Revelation 14:14–20

Harvesting the Earth and Trampling the Winepress

14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud,o and seated on the cloud was one like a son of manb p with a crownq of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the templer and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickles and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvestt of the earth is ripe.” 16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

17 Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.u 18 Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altarv and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sicklew and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.” 19 The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath.x 20 They were trampled in the winepressy outside the city,z and blooda flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.c
