14 And I looked, and, lo, aa Lamb stood on bthe mount Sion, and with him can hundred forty and four thousand, dhaving his Father’s name written in their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, eas the voice of many waters, and fas the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers gharping with their harps: 3 And they sung as it were ha new song before the throne, and before gthe four beasts, and the elders: and ino man could learn that song but cthe hundred and forty and four thousand, hwhich were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are they which jwere not defiled with women; for kthey are virgins. These are they jlwhich follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These †hwere redeemed from among men, being mthe firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. 5 And nin their mouth was found no guile: for they are owithout fault before the throne of God.
6 And I saw another pangel fly in the midst of heaven, having qthe everlasting gospel to preach unto rthem that dwell on the earth, and to severy nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, tFear God, and ugive glory to him; for vthe hour wof his judgment is come: and xworship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 8 And there followed another angel, saying, yzBabylon is fallen, is fallen, athat great city, because bshe made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man cworship the beast and his image, and receive chis mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same dshall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is epoured out fwithout mixture into dthe cup of his indignation; and ghe shall be tormented with ghfire and ghbrimstone in the presence of ithe holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And kthe smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and lthey have no rest day nor night, cwho worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth cthe mark of his name. 12 mHere is the patience of the saints: here are nthey that keep the commandments of God, and othe faith of Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, pWrite, qBlessed are the dead rwhich die in the Lord ||sfrom henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, tthat they may rest from their labours; and utheir works do follow them.
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and vupon the cloud one sat wlike unto the Son of man, xhaving on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came yout of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in zthy sickle, and reap: for athe time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ||ripe. 16 And bhe that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came cout of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from dthe altar, ewhich had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; ffor her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great gwinepress of the wrath of God. 20 And ghthe winepress was trodden iwithout kthe city, and blood came out of the winepress, even lunto mthe horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred nfurlongs.
