The Revelation to John

15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for with them the wrath of God is completed.

15:2 And I saw, as it were, a sea of glass mingled with fire: and those who had won the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding the harps of God.

15:3 And they sang the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, O King of the ages.

15:4 Who shall not fear you, O Lord, and glorify your name? for you alone are holy: all nations shall come and worship before you; for your righteous acts have been revealed.

15:5 And after that I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened:

15:6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

15:7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever.

15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended.

16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God upon the earth.

16:2 And the first went, and poured out his bowl upon the earth; and foul and malignant sores fell upon the men who had the mark of the beast, and upon those who worshipped his image.

16:3 And the second angel poured out his bowl upon the sea; and it became like the blood of a dead man: and every living thing in the sea died.

16:4 And the third angel poured out his bowl upon the rivers and springs of water; and they became blood.

16:5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, you who are, and were, O Holy One, because you have judged thus.

16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink; for such is their due.

16:7 And I heard the altar say, Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given power to scorch men with fire.

16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, who has power over these plagues: and they did not repent and give him glory.

16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was filled with darkness; and they gnawed their tongues in pain,

16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.

16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his bowl upon the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way for the kings of the east might be prepared.

16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miraculous signs, who go forth to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for battle on the great day of God Almighty.

16:15 Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who stays awake, and keeps his garments with him, lest he walk naked and ashamed for all to see.

16:16 And they gathered them together at the place which in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple [of heaven], from the throne, saying, It is done.

16:18 And there were flashes of lightning, and rumblings, and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as had never been since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake it was, and so great.

16:19 And the great city was broken into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and God remembered Babylon the great, to give her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.

16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of hail; for the plague was exceedingly great.

17:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, came and spoke to me, saying, Come here; I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits upon many waters.

17:2 With her the kings of the earth have committed acts of adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her adulteries.

17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast, which was full of names of blasphemy, and had seven heads and ten horns.

17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and of the filthiness of her adulteries:


17:6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered greatly.

17:7 And the angel said to me, Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.

17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go to perdition: and those who live on the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, shall marvel when they behold the beast, because he was, and is not, and is to come.

17:9 This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.

17:10 And there are seven kings: five have fallen, and one is, and the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain for a short time.

17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, is the eighth; and yet is one of the seven, and he goes to perdition.

17:12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, who have received no kingdom as yet; but receive authority as kings for one hour, along with the beast.

17:13 These are of one mind, and shall give their power and authority to the beast.

17:14 They shall make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and those who are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

17:15 And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

17:16 And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, they shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17:17 For God has put in their hearts to accomplish his purpose, by agreeing to give their sovereignty to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

17:18 And the woman you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was illuminated by his glory.

18:2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great. It has become the dwelling place of devils, and the haunt of every foul spirit, and a haunt of every unclean and loathsome bird.

18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her adulteries, and the kings of the earth have committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with her excessive luxuries.

18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive her plagues.

18:5 For her sins have piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

18:6 Repay her as she has paid, and double, according to her works: in the cup which she has mixed for others, mix for her a double portion.

18:7 As she glorified herself and lived in luxury, give to her that measure of torment and grief: for she says in her heart, I sit as a queen, and am no widow, and shall never see sorrow.

18:8 Therefore her plagues shall come in one day, pestilence, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed adultery and lived luxuriously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning;

18:10 They shall stand far off in fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, the great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour your judgment has come.

18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their cargoes any more:

18:12 Cargoes of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all citron wood, and all articles of ivory, and all articles of precious wood, and of bronze, and iron, and marble,

18:13 And cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and myrrh, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and the souls of men.

18:14 And the fruits that your soul longed for have departed from you, and all the luxuries and splendour have vanished, never to be found again.

18:15 The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand far off in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,

18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, the great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

18:17 For in one hour such great wealth has come to ruin. And every shipmaster, and all voyagers in ships, and sailors, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood far off,

18:18 And cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city was ever like this great city!

18:19 And they cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, Alas, alas, the great city, by which all who had ships on the sea were made rich by her wealth! for in one hour she has been laid waste.

18:20 Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets; for God has judged her for what she did to you.

18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, With such violence shall the great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall never be found again.

18:22 And the sound of harpists, and musicians, and of flute players, and trumpeters, shall never be heard in you again; and no craftsman, of whatever craft, shall be found in you any more; and the sound of a millstone shall never be heard in you again;

18:23 And the light of a lamp shall never shine in you again; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall never be heard in you again: your merchants were the great men of the earth; and by your sorceries all nations were deceived.

18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all who have been slain upon the earth.

19:1 And after these things I heard the roar of a great multitude in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and power belong to our God:

19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great harlot, who corrupted the earth with her adulteries, and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.

19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. Her smoke rises up forever and ever.

19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

19:5 And a voice came from the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both small and great.

19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters, like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord our God omnipotent reigns.

19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give glory to him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

19:8 And it was granted to her to be clothed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

19:9 And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true words of God.

19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, Do not do that: I am a fellow servant with you and your brethren, who hold to the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse; and he who sat upon it was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.

19:12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written upon him, that no man knew, but he himself.

19:13 And he was clothed with a robe dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

19:14 And the armies of heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

19:15 And out of his mouth comes a sharp sword, with which he may strike the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of Almighty God.

19:16 And he has on his robe and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, Come and gather yourselves together for the great supper of God;

19:18 That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of those who sit upon them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.

19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat upon the horse, and against his army.

19:20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed miraculous signs in his presence, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast, and those who worshipped his image. They were both cast alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur.

19:21 And the rest were slain with the sword that came out of the mouth of him who sat upon the horse: and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

20:2 And he laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,

20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and sealed it over him, that he should no longer deceive the nations, until the thousand years should be ended: and after that he must be released for a short time.

20:4 And I saw thrones, on which were seated those to whom judgment had been given: and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness for Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast, nor his image, nor had they received his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands; and they lived again and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

20:5 But the rest of the dead did not come to life again until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.

20:6 Blessed and holy is he who takes part in the first resurrection: over these the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him for a thousand years.

20:7 And when the thousand years have expired, Satan shall be released from his prison,

20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for battle: the number of them is like the sand of the sea.

20:9 And they marched across the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet were, and they shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.

20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him who sat upon it, from whose face earth and heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

20:12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged by those things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

20:13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it; and death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them: and they were judged, every man according to his deeds.

20:14 And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

20:15 And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away; and there was no more sea.

21:2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

21:3 And I heard a great voice from the throne saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall live among them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

21:4 And he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain: for the former things have passed away.

21:5 And he who sits upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are faithful and true.

21:6 And he said to me, It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him who is thirsty, without cost, from the spring of the water of life.

21:7 He who overcomes shall inherit all these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

21:8 But the cowardly, and unbelieving, and the vile, and murderers, and the sexually immoral, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur: which is the second death.

21:9 And there came to me one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues, and spoke to me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.

21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

21:11 Having the glory of God: and her radiance was like a stone most precious, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

21:12 It had a great and high wall, and twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.

21:13 On the east were three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

21:15 And he who spoke to me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, and its gates, and its wall.

21:16 And the city was laid out in a square, its length equal to its breadth: and he measured the city with the rod, twelve thousand stadia. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

21:17 And he measured its wall, a hundred and forty-four cubits, according to man's measurement, which the angel was using.

21:18 And the wall was made of jasper: and the city of pure gold, like clear glass.

21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;

21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.

21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each gate made of a single pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

21:22 And I saw no temple in it: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, or the moon, to shine upon it: for the glory of God is its light, and the Lamb its lamp.

21:24 And the nations shall walk by its light: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory into it.

21:25 And its gates shall never be shut by day: and there shall be no night there.

21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

21:27 But nothing impure shall enter into it, nor shall any man who commits shameful acts, or who lies: but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

22:1 And he showed me the river of the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb,

22:2 Down the middle of the street of the city. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, which bore twelve kinds of fruits, and yielded its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

22:3 And there shall no longer be any curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be upon their foreheads.

22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they shall need no lamp, nor light from the sun; for the Lord God shall give them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

22:6 And he said to me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show to his servants the things which must shortly come to pass.

22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.

22:8 I, John, heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things.

22:9 Then he said to me, Do not do that: I am a fellow servant with you and your brethren the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book: worship God.

22:10 And he said to me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

22:11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he who is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he who is holy, let him be holy still.

22:12 Behold, I am coming quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according to what he has done.

22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

22:15 Outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and the sexually immoral, and murderers, and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

22:16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to you to testify of these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.

22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him who hears say, Come. And let him who is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life without cost.

22:18 For I testify to every man who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book:

22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part in the tree of life, and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

22:20 He who testifies to these things says, Surely I am coming quickly. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

22:21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all. Amen.
