Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 After these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding [the] four winds of the earth, that they blew not on the earth [that they blow not on the earth], neither on the sea, neither on any tree. 1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending up from the rising of the sun, that had a sign of the living God [And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having a sign of quick God]. And he cried with a great voice to the four angels, to which it was given [to whom it is given] to harm the earth, and the sea, 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
3 and said [saying], Do not ye harm the earth, and the sea, neither [to] trees, till we mark [till we sign, or mark] the servants of our God in the foreheads of them. 3 "Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God."
4 And I heard the number of men that were marked, an hundred thousand and four and forty thousand marked [And I heard the number of them signed, or marked, an hundred and four and forty thousand signed], of every lineage of the sons of Israel; 4 Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
5 of the lineage of Juda, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Reuben, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Gad, twelve thousand marked [signed]; 5 From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
6 of the lineage of Aser, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Nephthalim, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Manasses, twelve thousand marked [signed]; 6 from the tribe of Asher 12,000, from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000, from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
7 of the lineage of Simeon, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Levi, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Issachar, twelve thousand marked [signed]; 7 from the tribe of Simeon 12,000, from the tribe of Levi 12,000, from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
8 of the lineage of Zabulon, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Joseph, twelve thousand marked [signed]; of the lineage of Benjamin, twelve thousand marked [signed]. 8 from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000, from the tribe of Joseph 12,000, from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.
9 After these things I saw a great people, whom no man might number, of all folks, and lineages, and peoples, and languages, standing before the throne, in the sight of the lamb; and they were clothed with white stoles, and palms were in the hands of them. [After these things I saw a great company, whom no man might number, of all folks and lineages, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, in the sight of the lamb, covered, or clothed, with white stoles, and palms in the hands of them.] 9 After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
10 And they cried with a great voice, and said [saying], Health to our God, that sitteth on the throne, and to the lamb. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb."
11 And all the angels stood all about the throne, and of the elder men, and the four beasts [And all angels stood in compass of the throne, and of the seniors, or elders, and four beasts]. And they fell down in the sight of the throne, on their faces, and worshipped God, 11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
12 and said [saying], Amen! blessing, and clearness, and wisdom, and doing of thankings, and honour, and virtue, and strength to our God, into worlds of worlds. Amen. 12 saying: "Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!"
13 And one of the elder men answered [And one of the seniors answered], and said to me, Who be these, that be clothed with white stoles? and from whence came they [and of whence came they]? 13 Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes--who are they, and where did they come from?"
14 And I said to him, My lord, thou knowest. And he said to me, These be they, that came from great tribulation, and washed their stoles, and made them white in the blood of the lamb. 14 I answered, "Sir, you know." And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore they be before the throne of God, and serve to him day and night [and serve him day and night], in his temple. And he that sitteth in the throne, dwelleth on [upon] them. 15 Therefore, "they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.
16 They shall no more hunger, neither thirst, neither [the] sun shall fall on them, nor any heat. 16 Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.
17 For the lamb, that is in the middle of the throne, shall govern them, and shall lead forth them [and shall lead them forth] to the wells of [the] waters of life; and God shall wipe away each tear from the eyes of them. 17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
