for true and just are his judgments.1 He has condemned the great prostitute2 who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants."33
And again they shouted: "Hallelujah!4 The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever."54
The twenty-four elders6 and the four living creatures7 fell down8 and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: "Amen, Hallelujah!"95
Then a voice came from the throne, saying: "Praise our God, all you his servants,10 you who fear him, both small and great!"116
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude,12 like the roar of rushing waters13 and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah!14 For our Lord God Almighty15 reigns.167
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!17 For the wedding of the Lamb18 has come, and his bride19 has made herself ready.
Fine linen,20 bright and clean, was given her to wear."
Then the angel said to me,21 "Write:22 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' "23 And he added, "These are the true words of God."2410
At this I fell at his feet to worship him.25 But he said to me, "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!26 For the testimony of Jesus27 is the spirit of prophecy."
I saw heaven standing open28 and there before me was a white horse, whose rider29 is called Faithful and True.30 With justice he judges and makes war.3112
His eyes are like blazing fire,32 and on his head are many crowns.33 He has a name written on him34 that no one knows but he himself.3513
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood,36 and his name is the Word of God.3714
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen,38 white39 and clean.
Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword40 with which to strike down41 the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter."a42 He treads the winepress43 of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:44 KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.4517
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds46 flying in midair,47 "Come,48 gather together for the great supper of God,4918
so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people,50 free and slave,51 small and great."5219
Then I saw the beast53 and the kings of the earth54 and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse55 and his army.
But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet56 who had performed the miraculous signs57 on his behalf.58 With these signs he had deluded59 those who had received the mark of the beast60 and worshiped his image.61 The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake62 of burning sulfur.6321
The rest of them were killed with the sword64 that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse,65 and all the birds66 gorged themselves on their flesh.
