Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword1 with which to strike down2 the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter."a3 He treads the winepress4 of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:5 KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.617
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds7 flying in midair,8 "Come,9 gather together for the great supper of God,1018
so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people,11 free and slave,12 small and great."1319
Then I saw the beast14 and the kings of the earth15 and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse16 and his army.
But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet17 who had performed the miraculous signs18 on his behalf.19 With these signs he had deluded20 those who had received the mark of the beast21 and worshiped his image.22 The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake23 of burning sulfur.2421
The rest of them were killed with the sword25 that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse,26 and all the birds27 gorged themselves on their flesh.
