14:1 And I looked, and lo, a lamb stood on the mount Sion, and
with him a hundred [and] forty four thousand, having his
Father's name written in their foreheads.
14:2 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:
14:3 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 four thousand, who were
redeemed from the earth.
14:4 These are they who were not defiled with women; for they
are virgins. These are they who follow the Lamb whithersoever
he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, [being] the
first-fruits to God and to the Lamb.
14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without
fault before the throne of God.
14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having
the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the
earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and language, and
14:7 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.
14:8 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 lewdness.
14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud
voice, If any man worshipeth the beast and his image, and
receiveth [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
14:10 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
14:11 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 whoever receiveth the mark of his
14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that
keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven, saying to me, Write,
Blessed [are] the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth:
Verily, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors;
and their works follow them.
14:14 And I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and upon the
cloud [one] sat like the Son of man, having on his head a
golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
14:15 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.
14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the
earth; and the earth was reaped.
14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in
heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, who 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
14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and
gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great
wine-press of the wrath of God.
14:20 And the wine-press was trodden without the city, and blood
came out of the wine-press, even to the horses' bridles, by the
space of a thousand [and] six hundred furlongs.
