1Then I looked, and behold, 1the Lamb was standing on 2MountZion, and with Him 3onehundred and forty-fourthousand, having4His name and the 5name of His Fatherwritten6on their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, like7the sound of manywaters and like the 8sound of loudthunder, and the voicewhich I heard was like the sound of 9harpistsplaying on their harps.
And they asang10a newsongbefore the throne and before the 11fourlivingcreatures and the 12elders; and 13noonecouldlearn the songexcept the 14onehundred and forty-fourthousand who had been 15purchased from the earth.
416These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they bhave kept themselveschaste. These are the ones who 17follow the Lambwherever He goes. These have been 18purchased from amongmen19as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
And 20nolie was found in their mouth; they are 21blameless.
And I sawanotherangelflying in 22midheaven, having23an eternalgospel to preach to 24those who clive on the earth, and to 25everynation and tribe and tongue and people;
and he said with a loudvoice, "26FearGod, and 27give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who 28made the heaven and the earth and sea and 29springs of waters."
And anotherangel, a secondone, followed, saying, "d30Fallen, fallen is 31Babylon the great, she who has 32madeall the nationsdrink of the 33wine of the epassion of her immorality."
9Thenanotherangel, a thirdone, followed them, saying with a loudvoice, "Ifanyone34worships the beast and his 35image, and receives a 36mark on his foreheador on his hand,
he also will drink of the 37wine of the wrath of God, which is mixedfin fullstrength38in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with 39fire and gbrimstone in the presence of the 40holyangels and in the presence of the Lamb.
"And the 41smoke of their tormentgoes up forever and ever; 42they havenorestday and night, those who 43worship the beast and his 44image, and hwhoeverreceives the 45mark of his name."
12Here is 46the iperseverance of the jsaints who 47keep the commandments of God and k48their faith in Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, "Write, '49Blessed are the dead who 50die in the Lord from now on!' " "Yes," 51says the Spirit, "so that they may 52rest from their labors, for their 53deedsfollow with them."
14Then I looked, and behold, a 54whitecloud, and sitting on the cloud was one55likela son of man, having a golden56crown on His head and a sharpsickle in His hand.
And anotherangel57came out of the mtemple, crying out with a loudvoice to Him who sat on the cloud, "n58Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the 59harvest of the earthois ripe."
16Then He who sat on the cloudpswung His sickleover the earth, and the earth was reaped.
And anotherangel60came out of the qtemplewhich is in heaven, and he alsohad a sharpsickle.
18Thenanotherangel, 61the one who haspoweroverfire, came out from 62the altar; and he called with a loudvoice to him who had the sharpsickle, saying, "r63Put in your sharpsickle and gather the clusterssfrom the vine of the earth, 64because her grapes are ripe."
19So the angeltswung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into 65the greatwinepress of the wrath of God.
And 66the winepress was trodden67outside the city, and 68bloodcame out from the winepress, up to the horses'bridles, ufor a distance of vtwo hundred miles.
