Revelation 20:1; Revelation 20:3 (New International Version)
And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.
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.
