His eyes are like blazing fire,1 and on his head are many crowns.2 He has a name written on him3 that no one knows but he himself.413
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood,5 and his name is the Word of God.614
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen,7 white8 and clean.
Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword9 with which to strike down10 the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter."a11 He treads the winepress12 of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:13 KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.1417
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds15 flying in midair,16 "Come,17 gather together for the great supper of God,1818
so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people,19 free and slave,20 small and great."2119
Then I saw the beast22 and the kings of the earth23 and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse24 and his army.
But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet25 who had performed the miraculous signs26 on his behalf.27 With these signs he had deluded28 those who had received the mark of the beast29 and worshiped his image.30 The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake31 of burning sulfur.3221
The rest of them were killed with the sword33 that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse,34 and all the birds35 gorged themselves on their flesh.
