These were redeemedafrom among men, being the firstfruits unto Godand to the Lamb.5Andintheirmouth was foundnoguile:for they are without faultbefore the throne of God.6And I sawanotherangelflyin the midst of heaven,having the everlastinggospel to preach unto them that dwellon the earth,and to everynation,andkindred,andtongue,andpeople,7Sayingwith a loudvoice,FearGod,andgiveglory to him;for the hour of hisjudgment is come : andworship him that madeheaven,andearth,and the sea,and the fountains of waters.8And there followedanotherangel,saying , Babylon is fallen , is fallen , that greatcity,because she madeallnationsdrinkof the wine of the wrath of herfornication.9And the thirdangelfollowedthem,sayingwith a loudvoice, If any manworship the beastandhisimage,andreceive his markinhisforehead,orinhishand,10
The sameshalldrinkof the wine of the wrath of God,which is poured out without mixtureinto the cup of hisindignation;and he shall be tormentedwithfireandbrimstone in the presence of the holyangels,and in the presence of the Lamb:11And the smoke of theirtorment ascendeth upforever and ever:and they havenorestdaynornight,whoworship the beastandhisimage,andwhosoeverreceiveth the mark of hisname.12Hereis the patience of the saints:here are they that keep the commandments of God,and the faith of Jesus.13And I heard a voicefromheavensaying unto me,Write , Blessed are the deadwhichdiein the Lord from henceforth:bYea,saith the Spirit,that they may restfromtheirlabours;andtheirworks do followthem.14And I looked , andbehold a whitecloud,andupon the cloud one satlike unto the Son of man,havingonhishead a goldencrown,andinhishand a sharpsickle.15Andanotherangelcame out of the temple,cryingwith a loudvoice to him that saton the cloud, Thrust inthysickle,andreap : for the time is come for thee to reap ; for the harvest of the earth is ripe .c16And he that saton the cloud thrust inhissickleon the earth;and the earth was reaped .
