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. 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.
And I will give power
unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two
hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are
the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before
the God of the earth. 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.
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. 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. 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.
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. 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.
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. 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.
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.
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
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
And the four and twenty
elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their
faces, and worshipped God, 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.
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. 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. (Revelation
