Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of deepness, and a great chain in his hand. 1 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.
2 And he caught the dragon, the old serpent, that is the Devil and Satan; and he bound him by a thousand years. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
3 And he sent him into deepness, and closed, and marked on him, that he deceive no more the folks, till a thousand years be filled [And he sent him into deepness, and closed, and signed, or sealed, upon him, that he deceive no more folks, till a thousand years be fulfilled]. After these things it behooveth him to be unbound a little time. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
4 And I saw seats, and they sat on them, and doom was given to them. And the souls of men beheaded for the witnessing of Jesus, and for the word of God, and them that worshipped not the beast, neither the image of it, neither took the character of it in their foreheads, neither in their hands [or in their hands]. And they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 And others of dead men lived not [The others of dead lived not], till a thousand years were ended. This is the first again-rising. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he, that hath part in the first again-rising. In these men the second death hath not power [In these the second death hath no power]; but they shall be priests of God, and of Christ, and they shall reign with him a thousand years. 6 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.
7 And when a thousand years shall be ended, Satan shall be unbound of his prison; 7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison
8 and he shall go out, and shall deceive folks, that be on four corners of the earth [that be in four corners of the earth], Gog and Magog. And he shall gather them [together] into battle, whose number is as the gravel of the sea. 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth--Gog and Magog--to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
9 And they ascended up on the broadness of the earth, and environed the castles of saints, and the loved city. And fire came down of God from heaven, and devoured them [And fire came down from God from heaven, and devoured them]. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.
10 And the devil, that deceived them, was sent into the pool of fire and brimstone, where both the beast and false prophets shall be tormented day and night, into worlds of worlds. Amen. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and one sitting on it, from whose sight earth fled and heaven [from whose sight earth flew away and heaven]; and the place is not found of them. 11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.
12 And I saw dead men, great and small, standing in the sight of the throne; and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and dead men were deemed of these things that were written in the books, after the works of them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.
13 And the sea gave his dead men, that were in it; and death and hell gave their dead men [and death and hell gave their dead], that were in them. And it was deemed of each [And it is deemed of all], after the works of them. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done.
14 And hell and death were sent into the pool of fire [And death and hell be sent into pool of fire]. This is the second death. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.
15 And he that was not found written in the book of life, was sent into the pool of fire. 15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
