Book 66        Revelation

66:001:001 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to
           shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
           and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant

66:001:002 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of
           Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

66:001:003 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of
           this prophecy, and keep those things which are written
           therein: for the time is at hand.

66:001:004 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto
           you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is
           to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his

66:001:005 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the
           first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the
           earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in
           his own blood,

66:001:006 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to
           him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

66:001:007 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him,
           and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth
           shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

66:001:008 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the
           Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the

66:001:009 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in
           tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ,
           was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God,
           and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

66:001:010 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a
           great voice, as of a trumpet,

66:001:011 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and,
           What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven
           churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and
           unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
           Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

66:001:012 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being
           turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

66:001:013 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the
           Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt
           about the paps with a golden girdle.

66:001:014 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;
           and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

66:001:015 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
           furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

66:001:016 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth
           went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the
           sun shineth in his strength.

66:001:017 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid
           his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the
           first and the last:

66:001:018 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for
           evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

66:001:019 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which
           are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

66:001:020 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right
           hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are
           the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks
           which thou sawest are the seven churches.

66:002:001 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things
           saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who
           walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

66:002:002 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how
           thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried
           them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found
           them liars:

66:002:003 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast
           laboured, and hast not fainted.

66:002:004 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast
           left thy first love.

66:002:005 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent,
           and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly,
           and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou

66:002:006 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the
           Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

66:002:007 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the
           tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

66:002:008 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things
           saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

66:002:009 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art
           rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are
           Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

66:002:010 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the
           devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be
           tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou
           faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

66:002:011 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
           second death.

66:002:012 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things
           saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

66:002:013 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's
           seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my
           faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful
           martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

66:002:014 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there
           them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to
           cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat
           things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

66:002:015 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
           Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

66:002:016 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight
           against them with the sword of my mouth.

66:002:017 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the
           hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the
           stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that
           receiveth it.

66:002:018 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These
           things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a
           flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

66:002:019 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy
           patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the

66:002:020 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou
           sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a
           prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit
           fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

66:002:021 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she
           repented not.

66:002:022 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit
           adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent
           of their deeds.

66:002:023 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches
           shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts:
           and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

66:002:024 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as
           have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of
           Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

66:002:025 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

66:002:026 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to
           him will I give power over the nations:

66:002:027 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a
           potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of
           my Father.

66:002:028 And I will give him the morning star.

66:002:029 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches.

66:003:001 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things
           saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven
           stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou
           livest, and art dead.

66:003:002 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are
           ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before

66:003:003 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold
           fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will
           come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I
           will come upon thee.

66:003:004 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled
           their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they
           are worthy.

66:003:005 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white
           raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of
           life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before
           his angels.

66:003:006 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches.

66:003:007 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These
           things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath
           the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and
           shutteth, and no man openeth;

66:003:008 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door,
           and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and
           hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

66:003:009 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say
           they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make
           them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I
           have loved thee.

66:003:010 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will
           keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon
           all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

66:003:011 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that
           no man take thy crown.

66:003:012 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my
           God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him
           the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which
           is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God:
           and I will write upon him my new name.

66:003:013 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches.

66:003:014 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;
           These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness,
           the beginning of the creation of God;

66:003:015 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
           thou wert cold or hot.

66:003:016 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I
           will spue thee out of my mouth.

66:003:017 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and
           have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched,
           and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

66:003:018 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou
           mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be
           clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;
           and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

66:003:019 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore,
           and repent.

66:003:020 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my
           voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup
           with him, and he with me.

66:003:021 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my
           throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my
           Father in his throne.

66:003:022 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
           the churches.

66:004:001 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven:
           and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet
           talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew
           thee things which must be hereafter.

66:004:002 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was
           set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

66:004:003 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine
           stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in
           sight like unto an emerald.

66:004:004 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and
           upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed
           in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

66:004:005 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and
           voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the
           throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

66:004:006 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto
           crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the
           throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

66:004:007 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like
           a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the
           fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

66:004:008 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and
           they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and
           night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was,
           and is, and is to come.

66:004:009 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him
           that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

66:004:010 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on
           the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and
           cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

66:004:011 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and
           power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
           they are and were created.

66:005:001 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a
           book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven

66:005:002 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is
           worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

66:005:003 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
           was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

66:005:004 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and
           to read the book, neither to look thereon.

66:005:005 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the
           Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed
           to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

66:005:006 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the
           four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as
           it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which
           are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

66:005:007 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
           that sat upon the throne.

66:005:008 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and
           twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of
           them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the
           prayers of saints.

66:005:009 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the
           book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and
           hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and
           tongue, and people, and nation;

66:005:010 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall
           reign on the earth.

66:005:011 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about
           the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of
           them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of

66:005:012 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to
           receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and
           honour, and glory, and blessing.

66:005:013 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and
           under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are
           in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and
           power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the
           Lamb for ever and ever.

66:005:014 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders
           fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

66:006:001 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard,
           as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts
           saying, Come and see.

66:006:002 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him
           had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth
           conquering, and to conquer.

66:006:003 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
           beast say, Come and see.

66:006:004 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was
           given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth,
           and that they should kill one another: and there was given
           unto him a great sword.

66:006:005 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast
           say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he
           that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

66:006:006 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A
           measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for
           a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

66:006:007 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of
           the fourth beast say, Come and see.

66:006:008 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat
           on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was
           given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill
           with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the
           beasts of the earth.

66:006:009 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar
           the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for
           the testimony which they held:

66:006:010 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord,
           holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on
           them that dwell on the earth?

66:006:011 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was
           said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season,
           until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that
           should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

66:006:012 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there
           was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth
           of hair, and the moon became as blood;

66:006:013 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig
           tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty

66:006:014 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
           together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
           their places.

66:006:015 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich
           men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every
           bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in
           the rocks of the mountains;

66:006:016 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us
           from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the
           wrath of the Lamb:

66:006:017 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able
           to stand?

66:007:001 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four
           corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth,
           that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea,
           nor on any tree.

66:007:002 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the
           seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the
           four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the

66:007:003 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
           till we have sealed the servants of our God in their

66:007:004 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there
           were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the
           tribes of the children of Israel.

66:007:005 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
           of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad
           were sealed twelve thousand.

66:007:006 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
           of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
           Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

66:007:007 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
           tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
           Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

66:007:008 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
           tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
           Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

66:007:009 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man
           could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and
           tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed
           with white robes, and palms in their hands;

66:007:010 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
           which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

66:007:011 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the
           elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on
           their faces, and worshipped God,

66:007:012 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
           thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our
           God for ever and ever. Amen.

66:007:013 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these
           which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

66:007:014 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,
           These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have
           washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the

66:007:015 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day
           and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne
           shall dwell among them.

66:007:016 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
           shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

66:007:017 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed
           them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and
           God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

66:008:001 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in
           heaven about the space of half an hour.

66:008:002 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them
           were given seven trumpets.

66:008:003 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden
           censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he
           should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden
           altar which was before the throne.

66:008:004 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of
           the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

66:008:005 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the
           altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and
           thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

66:008:006 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared
           themselves to sound.

66:008:007 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire
           mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the
           third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was
           burnt up.

66:008:008 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain
           burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of
           the sea became blood;

66:008:009 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and
           had life, died; and the third part of the ships were

66:008:010 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from
           heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third
           part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

66:008:011 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third
           part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the
           waters, because they were made bitter.

66:008:012 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun
           was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third
           part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened,
           and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night

66:008:013 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of
           heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the
           inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the
           trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

66:009:001 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven
           unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless

66:009:002 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out
           of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and
           the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

66:009:003 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and
           unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have

66:009:004 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass
           of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but
           only those men which have not the seal of God in their

66:009:005 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but
           that they should be tormented five months: and their torment
           was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

66:009:006 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it;
           and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

66:009:007 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared
           unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like
           gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

66:009:008 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were
           as the teeth of lions.

66:009:009 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron;
           and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of
           many horses running to battle.

66:009:010 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings
           in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

66:009:011 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the
           bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon,
           but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

66:009:012 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more

66:009:013 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four
           horns of the golden altar which is before God,

66:009:014 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the
           four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

66:009:015 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an
           hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the
           third part of men.

66:009:016 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred
           thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

66:009:017 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on
           them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and
           brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of
           lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and

66:009:018 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire,
           and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of
           their mouths.

66:009:019 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for
           their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with
           them they do hurt.

66:009:020 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues
           yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should
           not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass,
           and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor

66:009:021 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their
           sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

66:010:001 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed
           with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face
           was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

66:010:002 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his
           right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

66:010:003 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when
           he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

66:010:004 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was
           about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto
           me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and
           write them not.

66:010:005 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the
           earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

66:010:006 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created
           heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and
           the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which
           are therein, that there should be time no longer:

66:010:007 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he
           shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished,
           as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

66:010:008 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again,
           and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the
           hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the

66:010:009 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the
           little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and
           it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth
           sweet as honey.

66:010:010 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it
           up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I
           had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

66:010:011 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many
           peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

66:011:001 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel
           stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the
           altar, and them that worship therein.

66:011:002 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and
           measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the
           holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

66:011:003 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall
           prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed
           in sackcloth.

66:011:004 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
           standing before the God of the earth.

66:011:005 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their
           mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt
           them, he must in this manner be killed.

66:011:006 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days
           of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to
           blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as
           they will.

66:011:007 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast
           that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war
           against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

66:011:008 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great
           city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also
           our Lord was crucified.

66:011:009 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations
           shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall
           not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

66:011:010 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them,
           and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because
           these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

66:011:011 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God
           entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great
           fear fell upon them which saw them.

66:011:012 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them,
           Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and
           their enemies beheld them.

66:011:013 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth
           part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men
           seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave
           glory to the God of heaven.

66:011:014 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh

66:011:015 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in
           heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the
           kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign
           for ever and ever.

66:011:016 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their
           seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

66:011:017 Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art,
           and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy
           great power, and hast reigned.

66:011:018 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the
           time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou
           shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to
           the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and
           shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

66:011:019 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen
           in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were
           lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake,
           and great hail.

66:012:001 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed
           with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a
           crown of twelve stars:

66:012:002 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and
           pained to be delivered.

66:012:003 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a
           great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven
           crowns upon his heads.

66:012:004 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and
           did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the
           woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child
           as soon as it was born.

66:012:005 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations
           with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and
           to his throne.

66:012:006 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place
           prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand
           two hundred and threescore days.

66:012:007 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought
           against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

66:012:008 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in

66:012:009 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called
           the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was
           cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with

66:012:010 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come
           salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the
           power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast
           down, which accused them before our God day and night.

66:012:011 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the
           word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto
           the death.

66:012:012 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe
           to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil
           is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth
           that he hath but a short time.

66:012:013 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he
           persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

66:012:014 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that
           she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she
           is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the
           face of the serpent.

66:012:015 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after
           the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the

66:012:016 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her
           mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of
           his mouth.

66:012:017 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war
           with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of
           God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

66:013:001 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up
           out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his
           horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

66:013:002 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his
           feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of
           a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and
           great authority.

66:013:003 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and
           his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after
           the beast.

66:013:004 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the
           beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto
           the beast? who is able to make war with him?

66:013:005 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and
           blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty
           and two months.

66:013:006 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme
           his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

66:013:007 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to
           overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and
           tongues, and nations.

66:013:008 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose
           names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain
           from the foundation of the world.

66:013:009 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

66:013:010 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he
           that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.
           Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

66:013:011 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he
           had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

66:013:012 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,
           and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship
           the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

66:013:013 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down
           from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

66:013:014 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of
           those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the
           beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they
           should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a
           sword, and did live.

66:013:015 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast,
           that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that
           as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be

66:013:016 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
           and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their

66:013:017 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark,
           or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

66:013:018 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the
           number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
           number is Six hundred threescore and six.

66:014:001 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and
           with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his
           Father's name written in their foreheads.

66:014:002 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters,
           and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of
           harpers harping with their harps:

66:014:003 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and
           before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn
           that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which
           were redeemed from the earth.

66:014:004 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are
           virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he
           goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the
           firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

66:014:005 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without
           fault before the throne of God.

66:014:006 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the
           everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the
           earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and

66:014:007 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for
           the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made
           heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

66:014:008 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen,
           is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink
           of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

66:014:009 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,
           If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his
           mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

66:014:010 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is
           poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation;
           and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the
           presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

66:014:011 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:
           and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and
           his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

66:014:012 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep
           the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

66:014:013 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed
           are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith
           the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their
           works do follow them.

66:014:014 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one
           sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden
           crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

66:014:015 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud
           voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and
           reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest
           of the earth is ripe.

66:014:016 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the
           earth; and the earth was reaped.

66:014:017 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven,
           he also having a sharp sickle.

66:014:018 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power
           over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp
           sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the
           clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully

66:014:019 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and
           gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great
           winepress of the wrath of God.

66:014:020 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came
           out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the
           space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

66:015:001 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven
           angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up
           the wrath of God.

66:015:002 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and
           them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his
           image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name,
           stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

66:015:003 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the
           song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works,
           Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of

66:015:004 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for
           thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship
           before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

66:015:005 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the
           tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:

66:015:006 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.

66:015:007 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven
           golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and

66:015:008 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God,
           and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the
           temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were

66:016:001 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the
           seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the
           wrath of God upon the earth.

66:016:002 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth;
           and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which
           had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his

66:016:003 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it
           became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died
           in the sea.

66:016:004 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and
           fountains of waters; and they became blood.

66:016:005 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O
           Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast
           judged thus.

66:016:006 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou
           hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

66:016:007 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God
           Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

66:016:008 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and
           power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

66:016:009 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name
           of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented
           not to give him glory.

66:016:010 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the
           beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed
           their tongues for pain,

66:016:011 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and
           their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

66:016:012 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river
           Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of
           the kings of the east might be prepared.

66:016:013 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.

66:016:014 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go
           forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to
           gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

66:016:015 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and
           keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his

66:016:016 And he gathered them together into a place called in the
           Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

66:016:017 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and
           there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the
           throne, saying, It is done.

66:016:018 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there
           was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon
           the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

66:016:019 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the
           cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in
           remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine
           of the fierceness of his wrath.

66:016:020 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

66:016:021 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 the hail; for the plague thereof was
           exceeding great.

66:017:001 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven
           vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will
           shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth
           upon many waters:

66:017:002 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,
           and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the
           wine of her fornication.

66:017:003 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I
           saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names
           of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

66:017:004 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and
           decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a
           golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of
           her fornication:

66:017:005 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE

66:017:006 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and
           with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I
           wondered with great admiration.

66:017:007 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I
           will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that
           carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

66:017:008 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend
           out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they
           that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not
           written in the book of life from the foundation of the world,
           when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

66:017:009 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are
           seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

66:017:010 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and
           the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must
           continue a short space.

66:017:011 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and
           is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

66:017:012 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have
           received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one
           hour with the beast.

66:017:013 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength
           unto the beast.

66:017:014 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall
           overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and
           they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

66:017:015 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the
           whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and

66:017:016 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these
           shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked,
           and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

66:017:017 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to
           agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words
           of God shall be fulfilled.

66:017:018 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which
           reigneth over the kings of the earth.

66:018:001 And after these things I saw another angel come down from
           heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with
           his glory.

66:018:002 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the
           great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of
           devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every
           unclean and hateful bird.

66:018:003 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
           fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed
           fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed
           rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

66:018:004 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of
           her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that
           ye receive not of her plagues.

66:018:005 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered
           her iniquities.

66:018:006 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her
           double according to her works: in the cup which she hath
           filled fill to her double.

66:018:007 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so
           much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart,
           I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

66:018:008 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and
           mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with
           fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

66:018:009 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and
           lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for
           her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

66:018:010 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas,
           alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one
           hour is thy judgment come.

66:018:011 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her;
           for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

66:018:012 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and
           of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet,
           and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all
           manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron,
           and marble,

66:018:013 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and
           wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and
           sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

66:018:014 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from
           thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed
           from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

66:018:015 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her,
           shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and

66:018:016 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in
           fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and
           precious stones, and pearls!

66:018:017 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every
           shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as
           many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

66:018:018 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What
           city is like unto this great city!

66:018:019 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and
           wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made
           rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her
           costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

66:018:020 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and
           prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

66:018:021 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and
           cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that
           great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more
           at all.

66:018:022 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and
           trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no
           craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more
           in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more
           at all in thee;

66:018:023 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee;
           and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be
           heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great
           men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations

66:018:024 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and
           of all that were slain upon the earth.

66:019:001 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in
           heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour,
           and power, unto the Lord our God:

66:019:002 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged
           the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her
           fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her

66:019:003 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever
           and ever.

66:019:004 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down
           and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen;

66:019:005 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God,
           all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and

66:019:006 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as
           the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty
           thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent

66:019:007 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the
           marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself

66:019:008 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine
           linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the
           righteousness of saints.

66:019:009 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called
           unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me,
           These are the true sayings of God.

66:019:010 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me,
           See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy
           brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for
           the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

66:019:011 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that
           sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in
           righteousness he doth judge and make war.

66:019:012 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many
           crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he

66:019:013 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his
           name is called The Word of God.

66:019:014 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white
           horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

66:019:015 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he
           should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of
           iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and
           wrath of Almighty God.

66:019:016 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,

66:019:017 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a
           loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of
           heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of
           the great God;

66:019:018 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains,
           and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of
           them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and
           bond, both small and great.

66:019:019 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their
           armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on
           the horse, and against his army.

66:019:020 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
           wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that
           had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped
           his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire
           burning with brimstone.

66:019:021 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon
           the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the
           fowls were filled with their flesh.

66:020:001 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
           the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

66:020:002 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the
           Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

66:020:003 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set
           a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more,
           till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he
           must be loosed a little season.

66:020:004 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was
           given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were
           beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God,
           and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image,
           neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in
           their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand

66:020:005 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand
           years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

66:020:006 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first
           resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they
           shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with
           him a thousand years.

66:020:007 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed
           out of his prison,

66:020:008 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four
           quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together
           to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

66:020:009 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed
           the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire
           came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

66:020:010 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of
           fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are,
           and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

66:020:011 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from
           whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was
           found no place for them.

66:020:012 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the
           books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the
           book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things
           which were written in the books, according to their works.

66:020:013 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and
           hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were
           judged every man according to their works.

66:020:014 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
           the second death.

66:020:015 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
           cast into the lake of fire.

66:021:001 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven
           and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more

66:021:002 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from
           God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her

66:021:003 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the
           tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them,
           and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with
           them, and be their God.

66:021:004 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there
           shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither
           shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed

66:021:005 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all
           things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are
           true and faithful.

66:021:006 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the
           beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of
           the fountain of the water of life freely.

66:021:007 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his
           God, and he shall be my son.

66:021:008 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
           murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and
           all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth
           with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

66:021:009 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the
           seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with
           me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the
           Lamb's wife.

66:021:010 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high
           mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem,
           descending out of heaven from God,

66:021:011 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone
           most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

66:021:012 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at
           the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are
           the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

66:021:013 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the
           south three gates; and on the west three gates.

66:021:014 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them
           the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

66:021:015 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the
           city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

66:021:016 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as
           the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve
           thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height
           of it are equal.

66:021:017 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and
           four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of
           the angel.

66:021:018 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city
           was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

66:021:019 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished
           with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was
           jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the
           fourth, an emerald;

66:021:020 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh,
           chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth,
           a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an

66:021:021 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate
           was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as
           it were transparent glass.

66:021:022 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the
           Lamb are the temple of it.

66:021:023 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to
           shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb
           is the light thereof.

66:021:024 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the
           light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory
           and honour into it.

66:021:025 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there
           shall be no night there.

66:021:026 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into

66:021:027 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that
           defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a
           lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

66:022:001 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as
           crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

66:022:002 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the
           river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of
           fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of
           the tree were for the healing of the nations.

66:022:003 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of
           the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

66:022:004 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their

66:022:005 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle,
           neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light:
           and they shall reign for ever and ever.

66:022:006 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and
           the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto
           his servants the things which must shortly be done.

66:022:007 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings
           of the prophecy of this book.

66:022:008 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had
           heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the
           angel which shewed me these things.

66:022:009 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy
           fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them
           which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

66:022:010 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of
           this book: for the time is at hand.

66:022:011 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is
           filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let
           him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy

66:022:012 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give
           every man according as his work shall be.

66:022:013 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and
           the last.

66:022:014 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have
           right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates
           into the city.

66:022:015 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and
           murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a

66:022:016 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things
           in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and
           the bright and morning star.

66:022:017 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that
           heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And
           whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

66:022:018 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the
           prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things,
           God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this

66:022:019 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of
           this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of
           life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are
           written in this book.

66:022:020 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
           Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

66:022:021 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Project Gutenberg eBooks are often created from several printed
editions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the US
unless a copyright notice is included.  Thus, we usually do not
keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition.

We are now trying to release all our eBooks one year in advance
of the official release dates, leaving time for better editing.
Please be encouraged to tell us about any error or corrections,
even years after the official publication date.

Please note neither this listing nor its contents are final til
midnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement.
The official release date of all Project Gutenberg eBooks is at
Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month.  A
preliminary version may often be posted for suggestion, comment
and editing by those who wish to do so.

Most people start at our Web sites at: or

These Web sites include award-winning information about Project
Gutenberg, including how to donate, how to help produce our new
eBooks, and how to subscribe to our email newsletter (free!).

Those of you who want to download any eBook before announcement
can get to them as follows, and just download by date.  This is
also a good way to get them instantly upon announcement, as the
indexes our cataloguers produce obviously take a while after an
announcement goes out in the Project Gutenberg Newsletter. or

Or /etext02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90

Just search by the first five letters of the filename you want,
as it appears in our Newsletters.

Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)

We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work.  The
time it takes us, a rather conservative estimate, is fifty hours
to get any eBook selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyright
searched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc.   Our
projected audience is one hundred million readers.  If the value
per text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $2
million dollars per hour in 2002 as we release over 100 new text
files per month:  1240 more eBooks in 2001 for a total of 4000+
We are already on our way to trying for 2000 more eBooks in 2002
If they reach just 1-2% of the world's population then the total
will reach over half a trillion eBooks given away by year's end.

The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away 1 Trillion eBooks!
This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers,
which is only about 4% of the present number of computer users.

Here is the briefest record of our progress (* means estimated):

**The Legal Small Print**

(Three Pages)

Why is this "Small Print!" statement here? You know: lawyers.
They tell us you might sue us if there is something wrong with
your copy of this eBook, even if you got it for free from
someone other than us, and even if what's wrong is not our
fault. So, among other things, this "Small Print!" statement
disclaims most of our liability to you. It also tells you how
you may distribute copies of this eBook if you want to.

By using or reading any part of this PROJECT GUTENBERG-tm
eBook, you indicate that you understand, agree to and accept
this "Small Print!" statement. If you do not, you can receive
a refund of the money (if any) you paid for this eBook by
sending a request within 30 days of receiving it to the person
you got it from. If you received this eBook on a physical
medium (such as a disk), you must return it with your request.

This PROJECT GUTENBERG-tm eBook, like most PROJECT GUTENBERG-tm eBooks,
is a "public domain" work distributed by Professor Michael S. Hart
through the Project Gutenberg Association (the "Project").
Among other things, this means that no one owns a United States copyright
on or for this work, so the Project (and you!) can copy and
distribute it in the United States without permission and
without paying copyright royalties. Special rules, set forth
below, apply if you wish to copy and distribute this eBook
under the "PROJECT GUTENBERG" trademark.

Please do not use the "PROJECT GUTENBERG" trademark to market
any commercial products without permission.

To create these eBooks, the Project expends considerable
efforts to identify, transcribe and proofread public domain
works. Despite these efforts, the Project's eBooks and any
medium they may be on may contain "Defects". Among other
things, Defects may take the form of incomplete, inaccurate or
corrupt data, transcription errors, a copyright or other
intellectual property infringement, a defective or damaged
disk or other eBook medium, a computer virus, or computer
codes that damage or cannot be read by your equipment.

But for the "Right of Replacement or Refund" described below,
[1] Michael Hart and the Foundation (and any other party you may
receive this eBook from as a PROJECT GUTENBERG-tm eBook) disclaims
all liability to you for damages, costs and expenses, including

If you discover a Defect in this eBook within 90 days of
receiving it, you can receive a refund of the money (if any)
you paid for it by sending an explanatory note within that
time to the person you received it from. If you received it
on a physical medium, you must return it with your note, and
such person may choose to alternatively give you a replacement
copy. If you received it electronically, such person may
choose to alternatively give you a second opportunity to
receive it electronically.


Some states do not allow disclaimers of implied warranties or
the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so the
above disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you, and you
may have other legal rights.

You will indemnify and hold Michael Hart, the Foundation,
and its trustees and agents, and any volunteers associated
with the production and distribution of Project Gutenberg-tm
texts harmless, from all liability, cost and expense, including
legal fees, that arise directly or indirectly from any of the
following that you do or cause:  [1] distribution of this eBook,
[2] alteration, modification, or addition to the eBook,
or [3] any Defect.

You may distribute copies of this eBook electronically, or by
disk, book or any other medium if you either delete this
"Small Print!" and all other references to Project Gutenberg,

[1]  Only give exact copies of it.  Among other things, this
     requires that you do not remove, alter or modify the
     eBook or this "small print!" statement.  You may however,
     if you wish, distribute this eBook in machine readable
     binary, compressed, mark-up, or proprietary form,
     including any form resulting from conversion by word
     processing or hypertext software, but only so long as

     [*]  The eBook, when displayed, is clearly readable, and
          does *not* contain characters other than those
          intended by the author of the work, although tilde
          (~), asterisk (*) and underline (_) characters may
          be used to convey punctuation intended by the
          author, and additional characters may be used to
          indicate hypertext links; OR

     [*]  The eBook may be readily converted by the reader at
          no expense into plain ASCII, EBCDIC or equivalent
          form by the program that displays the eBook (as is
          the case, for instance, with most word processors);

     [*]  You provide, or agree to also provide on request at
          no additional cost, fee or expense, a copy of the
          eBook in its original plain ASCII form (or in EBCDIC
          or other equivalent proprietary form).

[2]  Honor the eBook refund and replacement provisions of this
     "Small Print!" statement.

[3]  Pay a trademark license fee to the Foundation of 20% of the
     gross profits you derive calculated using the method you
     already use to calculate your applicable taxes.  If you
     don't derive profits, no royalty is due.  Royalties are
     payable to "Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation"
     the 60 days following each date you prepare (or were
     legally required to prepare) your annual (or equivalent
     periodic) tax return.  Please contact us beforehand to
     let us know your plans and to work out the details.
