King James Bible
1The 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 John: 2Who
bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3Blessed [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.
John Greets the Seven Churches
4John 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 throne;
5And 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, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and
dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, 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,
8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was,
and which is to come, the Almighty.
John's Vision on Patmos
9I 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. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a
trumpet, 11Saying, 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.
12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden
candlesticks; 13And 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. 14His head and [his]
hairs [were] white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes [were] as a flame of fire; 15And his
feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16And 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.
17And 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: 18[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. 19Write the things which thou
hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The 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

Message to the Church in Ephesus
1Unto 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;
2I 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:
3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5Remember
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 repent. 6But this thou
hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He 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.
Message to the Church in Smyrna
8And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which
was dead, and is alive;
9I 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. 10Fear 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. 11He 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.
Message to the Church in Pergamum
12And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp
sword with two edges;
13I 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. 14But 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. 15So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my
mouth. 17He 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].
Message to the Church in Thyatira
18And 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;
19I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the
last [to be] more than the first. 20Notwithstanding 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. 21And I gave her space to
repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that
commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23And 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. 24But 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. 25But that which ye have
[already] hold fast till I come. 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to
him will I give power over the nations: 27And 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. 28And I will give him
the morning star. 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Message to the Church in Sardis
1And 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. 2Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not
found thy works perfect before God. 3Remember 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. 4Thou 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. 5He
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. 6He that hath
an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Message to the Church in Philadelphia
7And 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
8I 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. 9Behold, 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. 10Because
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. 11Behold, I come quickly:
hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him 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. 13He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Message to the Church in Laodicea
14And 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;
15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then
because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because
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: 18I 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. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
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. 21To 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. 22He
that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The Throne in Heaven
1After 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. 2And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was
set in heaven, and [one] sat on the throne. 3And 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.
4And 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.
Worship of the Creator
5And 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. 6And 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. 7And 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. 8And 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. 9And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to
him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10The 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, 11Thou 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.

The Book with Seven Seals
1And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the
backside, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is
worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth,
neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4And I wept much,
because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
The Lamb is Worthy
5And 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.
6And 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. 7And he came and took the book out of the right hand
of him that sat upon the throne. 8And 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. 9And 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; 10And hast made us unto our
God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
The Lamb Exalted
11And 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
thousands; 12Saying 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. 13And 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. 14And the four beasts said, Amen. And the
four [and] twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

The First Seal: Rider on a White Horse
1And 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. 2And 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
The Second Seal: War
3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And
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
The Third Seal: Famine
5And 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. 6And 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.
The Fourth Seal: Death
7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8And 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.
The Fifth Seal: Martyrs
9And 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: 10And 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? 11And 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.
The Sixth Seal: Terror
12And 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; 13And the stars of heaven
fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty
wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and
island were moved out of their places. 15And 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; 16And 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: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

God's People will Be Preserved
1And 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.
2And 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 sea, 3Saying,
Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in
4And 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.
5Of 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. 6Of the tribe of Aser [were] sealed
twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Manasses [were] sealed twelve thousand. 7Of 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. 8Of 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.
Praise from the Great Multitude
9After 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; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And 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, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour,
and power, and might, [be] unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white
robes? and whence came they? 14And 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 Lamb. 15Therefore 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. 16They shall
hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For
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.

The Seventh Seal
1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an
hour. 2And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven
3And 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. 4And the smoke of the incense, [which came] with the prayers of the
saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. 5And 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.
The First Four Trumpets
6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7The 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.
8And 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; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in
the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10And 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; 11And 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.
12And 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 likewise.
13And 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!

The Fifth Trumpet
1And 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 pit. 2And 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. 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them
was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And 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 foreheads. 5And 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. 6And in those days shall men seek death, and
shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7And 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. 8And they had hair
as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions. 9And 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. 10And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their
tails: and their power [was] to hurt men five months. 11And 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.
12One woe is past; [and], behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
The Sixth Trumpet
13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is
before God, 14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are
bound in the great river Euphrates. 15And 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. 16And the number of
the army of the horsemen [were] two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of
them. 17And 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 brimstone. 18By 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.
19For 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.
20And 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 walk: 21Neither repented they of their murders,
nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

The Angel and the Small Scroll
1And 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: 2And 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, 3And cried with a loud voice, as [when] a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven
thunders uttered their voices. 4And 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. 5And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon
the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6And 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: 7But 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.
8And 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 earth.
9And 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.
10And 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. 11And he said unto me, Thou must
prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

The Two Witnesses
1And 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. 2But 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. 3And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and
they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These
are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And 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. 6These 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.
The Witnesses Killed and Raised
7And 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. 8And 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. 9And 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.
10And 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.
11And 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. 12And 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. 13And 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.
14The second woe is past; [and], behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
The Seventh Trumpet
15And 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. 16And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces,
and worshipped God, 17Saying, 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. 18And 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.
19And 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

The Woman and the Dragon
1And 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: 2And she being with child cried,
travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven
heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4And 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.
5And 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. 6And 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]
The War in Heaven
7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon
fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And
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 him. 10And 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. 11And 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. 12Therefore 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.
The Dragon Persecutes the Woman
13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which
brought forth the man [child]. 14And 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. 15And 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 flood. 16And the earth helped
the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast
out of his mouth. 17And 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

The Beast Out of the Sea
1And 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. 2And
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. 3And 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. 4And 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? 5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and
blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. 6And he opened
his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that
dwell in heaven.
7And 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. 8And 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. 9If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10He 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.
The Beast Out of the Earth
11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he
spake as a dragon. 12And 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.
13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the
sight of men, 14And 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. 15And 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 killed.
The Mark of the Beast
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their
right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And 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. 18Here 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.

The Lamb and the 144,000
1And 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. 2And 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: 3And 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. 4These 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. 5And in their
mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
The Three Angels and Babylon's Fall
6And 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 people, 7Saying
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.
8And 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.
9And 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, 10The 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: 11And 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. 12Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God,
and the faith of Jesus.
13And 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.
The Harvest of the Earth
14And 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. 15And 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. 16And he that sat on the
cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
17And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18And 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 ripe. 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.
20And 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.

Seven Angels with Seven Plagues
1And 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.
2And 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.
3And 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 saints.
4Who 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.
5And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was
opened: 6And 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. 7And one of the four beasts
gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and
ever. 8And 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 fulfilled.

The First Six Bowls of Wrath
1And 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.
2And 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
3And 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.
4And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became
blood. 5And 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. 6For they have shed the blood of saints and
prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 7And I heard another out
of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous [are] thy judgments.
8And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch
men with fire. 9And 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.
10And 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, 11And blasphemed the God of heaven because
of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12And 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.
13And 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. 14For 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. 15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he
that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16And he
gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
The Seventh Bowl of Wrath
17And 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. 18And 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. 19And 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. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains
were not found. 21And 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.

The Woman on the Beast
1And 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: 2With 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. 3So 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. 4And 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: 5And upon her forehead [was] a name written,
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE
EARTH. 6And 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.
The Mystery Explained
7And 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.
8The 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. 9And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on
which the woman sitteth. 10And 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. 11And the beast that was,
and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12And 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. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength
unto the beast.
The Victory of the Lamb
14These 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.
15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and
multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16And 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. 17For 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. 18And the woman which thou
sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Babylon is Fallen
1And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the
earth was lightened with his glory. 2And 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. 3For 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.
4And 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. 5For her sins have reached unto
heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6Reward 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.
7How 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. 8Therefore
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.
Lament over Babylon
9And 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, 10Standing 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.
11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their
merchandise any more: 12The 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, 13And
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. 14And 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. 15The merchants of these things,
which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16And 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! 17For 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, 18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What [city is] like
unto this great city! 19And 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.
The Saints Rejoice
20Rejoice over her, [thou] heaven, and [ye] holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you
21And 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.
22And 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; 23And 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 deceived. 24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were
slain upon the earth.

Rejoicing in Heaven
1And 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: 2For 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 hand. 3And again they said, Alleluia. And her
smoke rose up for ever and ever. 4And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down
and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. 5And a voice came out of the
throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
The Marriage of the Lamb
6And 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 reigneth.
7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his
wife hath made herself ready. 8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen,
clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9And 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. 10And 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.
The Rider on the White Horse
11And 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. 12His 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 himself. 13And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The
Word of God. 14And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in
fine linen, white and clean. 15And 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. 16And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name
written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Defeat of the Beast and False Prophet
17And 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; 18That 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.
19And 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.
20And 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. 21And 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.

Satan Bound the Thousand Years
1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great
chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan,
and bound him a thousand years, 3And 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.
4And 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 years. 5But the rest
of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This [is] the first resurrection.
6Blessed 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.
Satan Cast into the Lake of Fire
7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8And 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. 9And 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. 10And 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.
The Final Judgment
11And 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. 12And 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. 13And 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. 14And death
and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

A New Heaven and a New Earth
1And 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 sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And 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. 4And 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 away.
5And 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. 6And 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.
7He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8But 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:

The New Jerusalem
9And 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.
10And 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, 11Having the glory of God: and her
light [was] like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12And 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: 13On the east three
gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14And the
wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the
wall thereof. 16And 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. 17And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred [and] forty [and] four
cubits, [according to] the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18And the building of the wall of
it was [of] jasper: and the city [was] pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19And 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; 20The fifth,
sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the
tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21And 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.
22And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23And
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. 24And 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. 25And the gates of it
shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26And they shall bring the glory
and honour of the nations into it. 27And 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.

King James Bible
The River of Life
1And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of
God and of the Lamb. 2In 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. 3And 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: 4And they shall see
his face; and his name [shall be] in their foreheads. 5And 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.
Jesus is Coming
6And 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.
7Behold, I come quickly: blessed [is] he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8And 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. 9Then 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.
10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11He 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 still.
12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his
work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14Blessed [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. 15For without [are] dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16I 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.
17And 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.
Nothing May Be Added
18For 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 book: 19And 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
20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.
