And they heard a loudvoice from heavensaying to them, "2Come up here." Then they 3went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemieswatched them.

The second7woe is past; behold, the thirdwoe is comingquickly.
15Then the 8seventhangelsounded; and there were 9loudvoices in heaven, saying, "10 The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of 11 His bChrist; and 12 He will reignforever and ever."
And the twenty-fourelders, who 13sit on their thronesbeforeGod, 14fell on their faces and worshipedGod,
17saying, "We give You thanks, 15O LordGod, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your greatpower and have begun to 16reign.
"And 17the nations were enraged, and 18Your wrathcame, and 19the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to creward Your 20bond-servants the prophets and the dsaints and those who fear Your name, 21the small and the great, and to destroythose who destroy the earth."
And 22the etemple of God which is in heaven was opened; and 23the ark of His covenantappeared in His ftemple, and there were flashes of 24lightning and sounds and peals of thunder and an earthquake and a 25greatghailstorm.
