1Then I saw1an angelcomingdown from heaven, holding the 2key of the abyss and a greatchainain his hand.
And he laidhold of the 3dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and 4bound him for a thousandyears ;
and he threw him into the 5abyss, and shut it and 6sealed it over him, so that he would 7not deceive the nationsanylonger, until the thousandyears were completed ; afterthesethings he must be released for a shorttime.
4Then I saw8thrones, and 9they sat on them, and 10judgment was given to them. And I saw 11the souls of those who had been beheadedbecause of btheir 12testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not 13worshiped the beastor his image, and had not received the 14mark on their forehead and on their hand ; and they 15came to life and 16reigned with Christ for a thousandyears.
The rest of the dead did not come to lifeuntil the thousandyears were completed. 17This is the firstresurrection.
618Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the firstresurrection ; overthese the 19seconddeathhasnopower, but they will be 20priests of God and of Christ and will 21reign with Him for a thousandyears.
7When the thousandyears are completed, Satan will be 22released from his prison,
and will come out to 23deceive the nations which are in the 24fourcorners of the earth, 25Gog and Magog, to 26gather them together for the war ; the number of them is like the 27sand of the cseashore.
And they 28came up on the dbroadplain of the earth and surrounded the 29camp of the esaints and the 30belovedcity, and 31firecamedown from heaven and devoured them.
And 32the devil who 33deceived them was thrown into the 34lake of fire and fbrimstone, where the 35beast and the 36falseprophet are also ; and they will be 37tormentedday and nightforever and ever.
11Then I saw a greatwhite38throne and Him who sat upon it, from whosegpresence39earth and heavenfledaway, and 40noplace was found for them.
And I saw the dead, the 41great and the small, standingbefore the throne, and h42books were opened ; and anotheribook was opened, which is 43the book of life ; and the dead44were judged from the things which were written in the jbooks, 45according to their deeds.
And the seagave up the dead which were in it, and 46death and Hades47gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, everyone of them 48according to their deeds.
14Then49death and Hades were thrown into 50the lake of fire. This is the 51seconddeath, the lake of fire.
And ifkanyone's name was not foundwritten in 52the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
