7:1 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.
7:2 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
7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
7:4 And I heard the number of them who were sealed: [and there
were] sealed a hundred [and] forty four thousand of all the
tribes of the children of Israel.
7:5 Of the tribe of Judah [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Reuben [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Gad [were] sealed twelve thousand.
7:6 Of the tribe of Asher [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Naphtalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Manasses [were] sealed twelve thousand.
7:7 Of the tribe of Simeon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Levi [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Isachar [were] sealed twelve thousand.
7:8 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.
7:9 After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man
could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and
languages, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb,
clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
who sitteth upon the throne, and to the Lamb.
7:11 And all the angels stood around the throne, and [about] the
elders and the four living beings, and fell before the throne
on their faces, and worshiped God,
7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, [be] to our God
for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying to me, Who are these
that are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
7:14 And I said to him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,
These are they who came out of great tribulation, and have
washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the
7:15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him
day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne
will dwell among them.
7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:17 For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will feed
them, and will lead them to living fountains of waters: and God
will wipe away all tears from their eyes.
