1And there was givenme a reedlike unto a rod:and the angelstood , saying , Rise , andmeasure the temple of God,and the altar,and them that worshiptherein .
2But the courtwhich is withoutthetempleleaveout,aandmeasureitnot;for it is given unto the Gentiles:and the holycity shall they tread under footforty and twomonths.3And I will giveb power unto mytwowitnesses,and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescoredays, clothed insackcloth.4Theseare the twoolive trees, and the twocandlesticksstandingbefore the God of the earth.5And if any manwillhurtthem,fireproceedeth out oftheirmouth,anddevoureththeirenemies:and if any manwillhurtthem, he must in this manner be killed .
