After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude1 in heaven shouting: "Hallelujah!2 Salvation3 and glory and power4 belong to our God,
for true and just are his judgments.5 He has condemned the great prostitute6 who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants."73
And again they shouted: "Hallelujah!8 The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever."94
The twenty-four elders10 and the four living creatures11 fell down12 and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: "Amen, Hallelujah!"135
Then a voice came from the throne, saying: "Praise our God, all you his servants,14 you who fear him, both small and great!"156
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude,16 like the roar of rushing waters17 and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah!18 For our Lord God Almighty19 reigns.207
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!21 For the wedding of the Lamb22 has come, and his bride23 has made herself ready.
Fine linen,24 bright and clean, was given her to wear."
Then the angel said to me,25 "Write:26 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' "27 And he added, "These are the true words of God."2810
At this I fell at his feet to worship him.29 But he said to me, "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!30 For the testimony of Jesus31 is the spirit of prophecy."
I saw heaven standing open32 and there before me was a white horse, whose rider33 is called Faithful and True.34 With justice he judges and makes war.3512
His eyes are like blazing fire,36 and on his head are many crowns.37 He has a name written on him38 that no one knows but he himself.3913
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood,40 and his name is the Word of God.4114
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen,42 white43 and clean.
Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword44 with which to strike down45 the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter."a46 He treads the winepress47 of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:48 KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.4917
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds50 flying in midair,51 "Come,52 gather together for the great supper of God,5318
so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people,54 free and slave,55 small and great."5619
Then I saw the beast57 and the kings of the earth58 and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse59 and his army.
But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet60 who had performed the miraculous signs61 on his behalf.62 With these signs he had deluded63 those who had received the mark of the beast64 and worshiped his image.65 The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake66 of burning sulfur.6721
The rest of them were killed with the sword68 that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse,69 and all the birds70 gorged themselves on their flesh.
