Modern Literal Version
[Revelation 1]



     1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his bondservants; the things which are essential to happen shortly and he signified it, having sent it through his messenger to his bondservant John; 1:2 who testifies of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ; as many things as he saw. 1:3 The fortunate one reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy and are keeping the things which have been written in it; for* the time is near.



     1:4 John to the seven congregations* which are in Asia: grace to you° and peace from God who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits that are in the sight of his throne; 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To the one who loves* us and washed us away from our sins in his blood; 1:6 and he made* us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father; the glory and the dominion is to him, forevermore. Amen. {Rev 5:10, 20:6}


     1:7 Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will be seeing him and those who stabbed him, and all the tribes of the earth will be grieving over him. Yes he comes, Amen.


     1:8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, Who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.


     1:9 I John, your° brother and partner in the affliction and the kingdom and the endurance which are in Christ Jesus, happened to be on the island called Patmos, because of the word of God and because of the testimony of Jesus Christ. 1:10 I became in the spirit on the Lord's day and I heard behind me a loud voice, like that of a trumpet 1:11 saying, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven congregations*: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamus and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. 1:12 And I turned there to see the voice which was speaking with me and having turned, I saw seven golden lamp-stands. 1:13 And one similar to a son of man was in the middle of the seven lamp-stands. He has clothed himself with a long-robe and the breasts are girded around with a golden belt. 1:14 Now his head and his hair were white like white wool, like snow, and his eyes were like a flame of fire; 1:15 and his feet similar to polished brass, like what has been refined in a furnace, and his voice like the voice of many waters. 1:16 And he has in his right hand seven stars and a sharp two edged long-sword traveled out from his mouth and his appearance was as the sun appears in its power. 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell like one dead at his feet. And he placed his right hand upon me, saying, Do not fear; I am the first and the last, 1:18 and the Living One, and I became dead and behold, I am living forevermore and I have the keys of death and of Hades. Amen. 1:19 Therefore write the things which you saw, and the things which are, and the things which are about to happen after these things. 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lamp-stands is this: the seven stars are the messengers of the seven congregations* and the seven lamp-stands are seven congregations*.



[Revelation 2]



     2:1 Write to the messenger of the congregation* in Ephesus:


     He who is holding-fast the seven stars in his right hand and who is walking in the middle of the seven golden lamp-stands says these things: 2:2 I know your works and your labor and endurance and that you are not able to bear evil men and you tested those who are saying about themselves, They are apostles and are not and you have found them false; 2:3 and you have endurance and did bear because of my name and have not fatigued. 2:4 But I have this against you; that you left your first love*. 2:5 Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and practice the first works; otherwise if you do not repent, I am coming to you shortly and will move your lamp-stand out of its place. 2:6 But this you have, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.


     2:7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*. To the one who overcomes, I will be giving to him to eat from the Tree of Life, which is in the Paradise of God.



     2:8 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Smyrna:


     The first and the last, who became dead and lived again says these things: 2:9 I know your works, your affliction and your poverty (but you are rich) and the blasphemy of those who saying about themselves they are Jews and they are not, but are a synagogue of the Adversary. 2:10 Let no one fear the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some from you° into prison, in order that you° may be tested and you° will have affliction ten days. Become faithful to death and I will be giving you the crown of life.


     2:11 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*. He who overcomes may never* be hurt from the second death.



     2:12 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Pergamus:


     He who has the sharp two edged long-sword says these things: 2:13 I know your works and where you dwell– where the Adversary's throne is, and you are holding-fast my name and did not deny my faith in the days, in which my witness, the faithful Antipas was killed beside you°, where the Adversary is dwelling. 2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there some holding-fast the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast an offense in the sight the sons of Israel, even to eat idol-sacrifices and to fornicate. 2:15 So you also have some holding-fast the similar teaching of the Nicolaitans. 2:16 Therefore repent; otherwise I am coming to you shortly and make war with them with* the long-sword of my mouth.


     2:17 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*. To the one who overcomes, I will be giving to him to eat from the manna which has been hidden and I will be giving him a white voting-pebble and a new name that has been written upon the voting-pebble, which no one knows except he who receives it.



     2:18 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Thyatira:


     The Son of God, who has his eyes like a flame of fire and his feet are similar to polished brass says these things: 2:19 I know your works and love* and faith and service and endurance and that your last works are more-than the first ones. 2:20 But I have this against you, that you are allowing your woman {Or: wife} Jezebel, she who calls herself a prophetess, and she who is teaching and misleading my bondservants to fornicate and to eat idol-sacrifices. 2:21 And I gave some time to her, in order that she might repent, and she is not willing to repent from her fornication. 2:22 Behold, I cast her onto a bed and those who are committing adultery with her into great affliction, if they do not repent from her works. 2:23 And I will be killing her children with* death, and all the congregations* will know that I am he who is searching the kidneys {i.e. thoughts; see heart*} and hearts and I will be giving to you°, each one according to your° works. 2:24 But I am saying to you° and to the rest who are in Thyatira, as many as are not holding to this teaching, who did not know the deep things of the Adversary, as they are saying, I am not putting upon you° another burden. 2:25 However hold-fast° to what you° have, till whenever I have come.


     2:26 And he who overcomes and he who is keeping my works to the end, to him I will be giving authority over the nations. 2:27 And he will shepherd them with* an iron rod, as the vessels of the potter will be crushed; as I have also received from my Father; 2:28 and I will be giving to him the morning star.


     2:29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*.



[Revelation 3]



     3:1 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Sardis:


     He who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars says these things: I know your works, that you have a name, that you live; and you are dead. 3:2 Become watchful and establish the rest of the things, which were about to be cast away; for* I have not found your works having been fulfilled in the sight of my God. 3:3 Therefore remember how you have received and heard, and keep it and repent. Therefore if you do not watch, I will be coming upon you like a thief and you may never* know what hour I will be coming upon you. 3:4 But you have a few names in Sardis who did not defile their garments and they will be walking with me in white, because they are worthy. 3:5 He who overcomes this, he will be dressed in white garments, and I will never* wipe-away his name out of the Book of Life and I will confess his name in the sight of my Father and in the sight of his messengers.


     3:6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*.



     3:7 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Philadelphia:


     He (the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will lock, except he who opens and no one will open) says these things: 3:8 I know your works (behold, I have given you an opened door which is in your sight, which no one is able to lock it), that you have little power and kept my word and did not deny my name. 3:9 Behold, I give those from the synagogue of the Adversary, those who say they are themselves Jews and they are not, but are lying, behold, I will make* them in order that they should come and should worship in the sight of your feet and should know that I have loved* you. 3:10 Because you kept the word of my endurance, I also will be keeping you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole inhabited-earth, to test those who are dwelling upon the earth. 3:11 I am coming shortly. Hold-fast what you have, in order that no one may take your crown. 3:12 He who overcomes, I will be making* him a pillar in the temple of my God and he may never* go outside anymore and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God and my own new name.


     3:13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*.



     3:14 And write to the messenger of the congregation* in Laodicea:


     The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the one in the beginning {or originator, Joh 1:2} from the creation of God, says these things: 3:15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish-that you might be cold or hot. 3:16 So because you are lukewarm and not hot nor cold, I am about to puke you out of my mouth. 3:17 Because you say, I am rich and have enriched ourselves and have need of nothing, and do not know that you are the miserable and the pitiful and are poor and blind and naked. 3:18 I am counseling together with you to buy gold from me, having been refined out of fire, in order that you may be enriched, and in order that you should dress yourself with white garments and in order that the shame of your nakedness should not be manifested to all, and in order that you may anoint your eyes with eye-salve, in order that you may see. 3:19 As many as I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. 3:20 Behold, I am standing at the door and knocking; if anyone hears my voice and if he opens the door, I will enter to him and will dine with him and he with me. 3:21 He who overcomes, I will be giving to him to sit with me at my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father at his throne.


     3:22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the congregations*.



[Revelation 4]



     4:1 I saw after these things, and behold, a door has been opened in heaven and the first voice which I heard speaking with me, a voice like that of a trumpet, saying, Come up here and I will be showing you what things are essential to happen after these things. 4:2 And immediately I became in the spirit and behold, a throne was placed in heaven, and sitting upon the throne 4:3 was one similar in appearance to a jasper stone and a carnelian and there was a rainbow surrounding the throne, similar in appearance to an emerald. 4:4 And twenty-four thrones were surrounding the throne and twenty-four elders sitting upon the thrones, having been dressed in white garments, and upon their heads golden crowns. 4:5 And lightnings and voices and thunders traveled out from the throne. And there were seven torches of fire burning in the sight of the throne, which are the seven spirits of God; 4:6 and in the sight of his throne, like a glassy sea similar to crystal, and in the middle of the throne and in a circle of the throne, four living creatures full of eyes before and behind. 4:7 And the first living creature was similar to a lion and the second living creature was similar to a calf and the third living creature having a face like that of a man and the fourth living creature was similar to a flying eagle. 4:8 And the four living creatures, one by one, having six wings apiece, are full of eyes inside and surrounding, and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming. 4:9 And whenever the living creatures gave glory and honor and thanks to the one who is sitting upon the throne, to the one who lives forevermore, 4:10 the twenty-four elders will fall down in his sight who is sitting upon the throne and will be worshiping the one who lives forevermore and will put their crowns in the sight of the throne, saying, 4:11 Worthy are you, our Lord and our God, the holy one, to receive the glory and the honor and the power because you created all things and because they are your will and they were created.



[Revelation 5]



     5:1 And I saw upon the right hand of the one who sits upon the throne a book having been written inside and on the back, having been sealed with seven seals. 5:2 And I saw a strong messenger preaching with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loose its seals? 5:3 And no one in the heaven or upon the earth or underneath the earth, was able to open the book or to look in it. 5:4 And I was weeping much, because no one was found worthy to open and to read the book or to look in it. 5:5 And one out of the elders says to me, Do not weep; behold, the Lion who is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome, so as to open the book and its seven seals. 5:6 And I saw in the middle of the throne and the four living creatures and in the middle of the elders, a Lamb standing, as one having been slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God, being sent into all the earth. 5:7 And he came and has taken it out of the right hand of the one who sits upon the throne. 5:8 And when he took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down in the Lamb's sight, each one having a harp and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of the holy-ones. 5:9 And they are singing a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals, because you were slaughtered and bought us in your blood for God out of every tribe and language and people and nation.


     5:10 And you made* them kings and priests to our God, and they will be reigning over the earth. {Rev 20:6}


     5:11 And I saw and I heard a voice like that of many messengers in circle of the throne and the living creatures and the elders, tens of thousands of tens of thousands; 5:12 saying in a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb who has been slaughtered to receive the power and the riches, and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and thanks. 5:13 And every created thing which is in the heaven and upon the earth and underneath the earth and upon the sea and all things in them, I heard saying, To the one who is sitting upon the throne and to the Lamb, is the thanks and the honor and the glory and the dominion, forevermore. Amen.


     5:14 And the four living creatures are saying the amen; and the elders fell down and worshiped him.



[Revelation 6]



     6:1 And I saw that the Lamb opened one out of the seven seals and I heard one out of the four living creatures saying like a voice of thunder, Come and behold! 6:2 And behold a white horse and he who sits upon it holding a bow, and a crown was given to him and he came forth overcoming and in order that he might overcome.



     6:3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. 6:4 And there came forth, another horse of fire, and to the one who sits upon it was given to take peace from the earth, in order that they should slaughter one another and a great sword was given to him.



     6:5 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come and behold. And behold, I saw a black horse and he who sits upon it had a balance in his hand. 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, Liter containers of grain for a denarius and three liter containers of barley for a denarius, and do not hurt the oil and the wine.



     6:7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come and behold. 6:8 And behold, a pale-green horse and he who sits upon him, his name was Death, and Hades was following with him. And there was given to him authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with* a long-sword and with* famine and with* death and by the beasts of the earth.



     6:9 And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who have been slaughtered because of the word of God and because of the testimony of the lamb which they were holding to. 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Until when, O holy and true Master, do you not judge and avenge our blood from those who dwell upon the earth? 6:11 And a white robe was given to each, and it was said to them, in order that they should still rest themselves for a time, until both their fellow bondservants and those who are about to be killed as they were also, should be fulfilled.



     6:12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal and a great earthquake happened, and the sun became black like hairy sackcloth and the whole moon became like blood; 6:13 and the stars of the heaven fell to the earth, like a fig tree, having cast its unripe figs when being shaken by a great wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed like a scroll being coiled up, and every mountain and every island were moved out of their places. 6:15 And the kings of the earth and the great-men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every bondservant and free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall° upon us and hide° us from the face of the one who is sitting upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb; 6:17 for* the great day of his wrath has come, and who is able to stand?



[Revelation 7]



     7:1 I saw after this thing, four messengers standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding-fast the four winds of the earth, in order that no wind should blow upon the earth nor upon the sea nor upon any tree. 7:2 And I saw another messenger ascending from the rising of the sun, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 7:3 saying, Do° not hurt the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, till we might seal the bondservants of our God upon their foreheads.


     7:4 And I heard the number of those who have been sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, having been sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel: 7:5 twelve thousand out of the tribe of Judah having been sealed; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Reuben; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Gad; 7:6 twelve thousand out of the tribe of Asher; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Naphtali; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Manasseh; 7:7 twelve thousand out of the tribe of Simeon; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Levi; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Issachar; 7:8 twelve thousand out of the tribe of Zebulun; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Joseph; twelve thousand out of the tribe of Benjamin having been sealed.



     7:9 I saw and behold after these things, a large crowd, which no one was able to number, out of every nation and tribes and peoples and languages, standing in the sight of the throne and in the sight of the Lamb, having been dressed in white robes and palm trees in their hands; 7:10 and they are crying with a loud voice, saying, The salvation is in our God who is sitting upon the throne and in the Lamb.


     7:11 And all the messengers and the elders and the four living creatures stood in a circle of the throne, and they fell upon their faces in the sight of the throne and worshiped God, 7:12 saying, Assuredly, the thanks and the glory and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the honor and the power and the strength is to our God, forevermore. Amen.


     7:13 And one out of the elders answered, saying to me, These who have been dressed in white robes, who are they and from where did they come?


     7:14 And I said to him, My lord, you know.


     And he said to me, These are those who are coming out of the great affliction and they have rinsed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 7:15 Because of this, they are in the sight of the throne of God, and they give-divine service to him day and night in his temple and he who sits upon the throne will be residing over them. 7:16 They will not be hungry anymore, nor thirsty anymore; nor should the heat of the sun fall upon them, nor any heat, 7:17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, is shepherding them and is guiding them to the springs of waters of life and God will be wiping-away every tear from their eyes.



[Revelation 8]



     8:1 And when he opened the seventh seal, there became a silence in heaven for approximately a half hour. 8:2 And I saw the seven messengers who are standing in God's sight, and seven trumpets were given to them.


     8:3 And another messenger came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer, and many incenses were given to him in order that he should give it to the prayers of all the holy-ones upon the golden altar which is in the sight of the throne. 8:4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the holy-ones, went up in God's sight out of the messenger's hand. 8:5 And the messenger has taken the censer, and he filled it from the fire of the altar and cast it to the earth and there became thunders and voices and lightnings and an earthquake.



     8:6 And the seven messengers who have the seven trumpets prepared themselves in order they might sound them.



     8:7 And the first trumpet sounded and there became hail and fire, having been mixed in blood and they were cast to the earth and the third of the earth was burnt up and the third of the trees was burnt up and all the pale-green grass was burnt up.



     8:8 And the second messenger sounded and something like a great mountain burning was cast into the sea and the third of the sea became blood; 8:9 and the third of the created things, (those who have life), died which were in the sea, and the third of the ships decayed.



     8:10 And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch and it fell upon the third of the rivers and upon the springs of the waters; 8:11 and the name of the star is called* the wormwood and the third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.



     8:12 And the fourth messenger sounded and the third of the sun was pounded and the third of the moon and the third of the stars; in order that the third of them should be darkened and the day might not appear for the third of it and the night likewise.



     8:13 And I saw and I heard one eagle, flying in mid-heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to those who are dwelling upon the earth, from the rest of the voices of the trumpet of the three messengers, who are about to sound.



[Revelation 9]



     9:1 And the fifth messenger sounded and I saw a star from heaven has fallen to the earth and the key of the pit of the abyss was given to him. 9:2 And he opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a burning furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened from the smoke of the pit. 9:3 And locusts came forth out of the smoke upon the earth, and authority was given to them, like the scorpions of the earth have authority. 9:4 And it was said to them in order that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any pale-green thing, nor any tree, except only men who do not have the seal of God upon their foreheads. 9:5 And it was given to them in order that they should not kill them, but in order that they should be tormented five months and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, whenever it strikes a man. 9:6 And men will seek death in those days and they will never* be finding it, and they will desire to die and death will be fleeing from them. 9:7 And the likenesses of the locusts were similar to horses, having been prepared *for war, and upon their heads like golden crowns and their faces are like men's faces. 9:8 And they had hair like the hair of women and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9:9 And they had breastplates, like iron breastplates, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses running to war. 9:10 And they have tails similar to scorpions and stings, and they have their authority in their tails to hurt the men for five months. 9:11 They have the messenger of the abyss as king over them. His name in Hebrew is Abbadon but in the Greek language he has the name Apollyon.



     9:12 The first Woe has gone away. Behold, two Woes still are coming after these things.



     9:13 And the sixth messenger sounded and I heard one voice out of the four horns of the golden altar which is in God's sight, 9:14 someone saying to the sixth messenger who has the trumpet, Loose the four messengers that have been bound upon the great river Euphrates. 9:15 And the four messengers were loosed, who have been prepared *for the hour and the day, and month and year, in order that they should kill the third of men. 9:16 And the number of the armies of the horsemen was twice tens of thousands of tens of thousands {i.e. an infinite number}. I heard the number of them. 9:17 And so I saw the horses in the vision and those who sits upon them, having fiery breastplates of hyacinth and of brimstone and the heads of the horses like the heads of lions; and fire and smoke and brimstone is traveling out of their mouths. 9:18 From these three wounds, the third of men was killed from the fire and the smoke and the brimstone, which traveled out of their mouths. 9:19 For* the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails; for* their tails are similar of serpents and they have heads, and they hurt men with* them. 9:20 And the rest of mankind, who were not killed with* these wounds, did not repent of the works of their hands, in order that they should not worship the demons and the golden and silver and the brass and the stone and the wooden idols; which are not able to see, nor hear, nor walk. 9:21 And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their stealing.



[Revelation 10]



     10:1 And I saw a strong messenger coming down from heaven, having been dressed with a cloud, and the rainbow is upon his head and his face is like the sun and his feet like pillars of fire; 10:2 and having, a book in his hand, which has been opened and he placed his right foot upon the sea and his left upon the earth; 10:3 and he cried out with a loud voice, just-like a lion roars and when he cried out, the seven thunders spoke their voices.


     10:4 And when the seven thunders spoke their voices, I was about to write and I heard a voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the seven thunders spoke and do not write them. 10:5 And the messenger whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his right hand to the heaven, 10:6 and swore by the one who lives forevermore, who created the heaven and the things in it and the earth and the things in it and the sea and the things in it– that time will be no longer delay. 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh messenger, whenever he is about to sound, and the mystery of God had completed, as he proclaimed the good-news to his bondservants, the prophets. 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard it again speaking with me and saying, Go, take the book which has been opened in the hand of the messenger who is standing upon the sea and upon the earth. 10:9 And I went to the messenger, saying to him that he should give me the book.


     And he says to me, Take it and devour it, and it will make your belly bitter, but it will be sweet like honey in your mouth. 10:10 And I took the book out of the messenger's hand and devoured it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth and when I ate it, my belly was made bitter.


     10:11 And they are saying to me, It is essential for you to prophesy again over many peoples and nations and languages and many kings.



[Revelation 11]



     11:1 And a reed similar to a rod was given to me and one says, Arise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who are worshiping in it. 11:2 And the courtyard outside the temple cast away outside {i.e. leave it out} and do not measure it, because it has been given to the nations and they will be trampling on the holy city forty-two months.


     11:3 And I will be giving to my two witnesses and they will be prophesying one thousand two hundred and sixty days, having been dressed in sackcloth. {Rev 11:9, 11:11, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5} 11:4 These are the two olive trees and the two lamp-stands, standing in the sight of the Lord of the earth. 11:5 And if anyone wishes to hurt them, fire travels out from their mouth and devours their enemies, and if anyone wishes to hurt them, it is essential for him to thus be killed. 11:6 These have the authority to lock the heaven, in order that no rainfall may rain on the days of their prophecy and they have authority over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of wound, whenever they will it.


     11:7 And whenever they completed their testimony, the beast which is ascending out of the abyss, will make* war with them and overcome them and kill them. 11:8 And the corpses of them lay in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. 11:9 And some from among the peoples and tribes and languages and nations look upon their corpses three and a half days and they will not allow their corpses to be laid in a tomb. {Rev 11:3, 11:11, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5} 11:10 And those who are dwelling upon the earth rejoice over them and will be joyous, and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell upon the earth. 11:11 And after the three and a half days the spirit of life from God entered into them and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those who view them. {Rev 11:3, 11:9, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5} 11:12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven saying to them, Come° up here. And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies viewed them. 11:13 And in that day there became a great earthquake and the tenth part of the city fell, and the names of seven thousand men were killed in the earthquake and the rest became fearful and gave glory to the God of heaven.



     11:14 The second Woe has gone away. Behold, the third Woe is coming shortly.



     11:15 And the seventh messenger sounded, and there became loud voices in heaven saying, The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and he will be reigning forevermore.


     11:16 And the twenty-four elders, who sit in God's sight upon their thrones, fell upon their faces and worshiped God, 11:17 saying, We give-thanks to you, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who was, because you have taken your great power and reigned. 11:18 And the nations were angry and your wrath came and the time of the dead to be judged and the time to give the reward to your bondservants, the prophets, and to the holy-ones, and to those who fear your name, to the little and to the great, and to have decay for those who are corrupting the earth.



     11:19 And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant* was seen in his temple, and there became lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail.



[Revelation 12]



     12:1 And a great sign was seen in heaven, a woman having been dressed with the sun and the moon underneath her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; 12:2 and she was pregnant, and was crying, being in travail and in torment to bear forth. 12:3 And another sign was seen in heaven and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven diadems upon his heads. 12:4 And his tail drags the third of the stars of heaven and he cast them to the earth and the dragon is standing in the sight of the woman who is about to bear, in order that whenever she has bore, he may devour her child. 12:5 And she bore a son, a male child, who is about to shepherd all the nations with* an iron rod and her child was taken away to God and to his throne. 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in order that they may nourish her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. {Rev 11:3, 11:9, 11:11, 12:14, 13:5}



     12:7 And there became a war in heaven. Michael and his messengers made war with the dragon, and the dragon and his messengers made war. 12:8 And they did not prevail, neither was a place found for him anymore in heaven. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast down, the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and the Adversary, the one who is misleading the whole inhabited-earth; he was cast down to the earth and his messengers were cast down with him. 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ has become, because the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them in the sight of our God day and night. 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love* their life even to death. 12:12 Because of this, O heavens and you° who are dwelling in them be° joyous! Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil has gone down to you°, having great fury, knowing that he has a small time.



     12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who bore the male child. 12:14 And the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, in order that she may fly into the wilderness to her place, *that she may be nourished there for a time and times and half a time, from the face of the serpent. {Rev 11:3, 11:9, 11:11, 12:6, 13:5} 12:15 And the serpent cast water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, in order that he might make* the river whisk her away. 12:16 And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 12:17 And the dragon was angry against the woman and went away to make* war with the rest of her seed, who are keeping the commandments of God and holding the testimony of Jesus.



[Revelation 13]



     13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and I saw a beast ascending out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads and upon his horns ten diadems and names of blasphemy upon his heads. 13:2 And the beast which I saw was similar to a leopard and his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. 13:3 And I saw one of his heads, like what has been slaughtered to death, and his deadly wound was healed and the whole earth marveled after the beast; 13:4 and they worshiped the dragon who has given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is similar to the beast? And who is mighty to make war with him? 13:5 And a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies was given to him, and authority to make* war forty-two months was given to him. {Rev 11:3, 11:9, 11:11, 12:6, 12:14} 13:6 And he opened his mouth to blaspheme toward God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and blaspheme those who are residing in the heaven. 13:7 And it was given to him to make* a war with the holy-ones and to overcome them and authority over every tribe and people and language and nation was given to him. 13:8 And all who are dwelling upon the earth will be worshiping him, everyone whose name has not been written in the Book of Life of the lamb, who has been slaughtered from the conception of the world. 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 13:10 If anyone holds those in captivity, he is going into captivity; if anyone kills with* the sword, it is essential for him to be killed with* the sword. Here is the endurance and the faith of the holy-ones.



     13:11 And I saw another beast ascending out of the earth, and he was holding two horns similar to a lamb and he was speaking like a dragon. 13:12 And he practiced all the authority of the first beast in his sight and was making* the earth and those who are dwelling in it in order that they should worship the first beast, whose wound of death was healed. 13:13 And he does great signs, even makes* fire in order that it might come down from heaven upon the earth in the sight of men. 13:14 And the one who is misleading those of mine who are dwelling upon the earth because of the signs which was given to him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwell upon the earth to make* an image to the beast, who was holding the wound of death from the sword and lived. 13:15 And it was given to it to give breath to the image of the beast, in order that the image of the beast should speak and in order that it should make* as many as would not worship the image of the beast in order that they should be killed. 13:16 And he makes* all, the little and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, in order that there may be marks given to them upon their right hand or upon their foreheads; 13:17 and in order that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except he who has the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 13:18 Here is wisdom. He who has perception, let him calculate the number of the beast; for* it is the number of man and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. {i.e. Nero; reigned 54-68 AD}



[Revelation 14]



     14:1 And I saw and behold, the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion and with him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having his name and the name of his Father written upon their foreheads. 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters and like the voice of great thunder. And the voice which I heard was like that of harpists harping with* their harps. 14:3 And they are singing a new song in the sight of the throne and in the sight the four living creatures and the elders and no one was able to learn the song except the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been bought out of the earth. 14:4 These are those who were not defiled with women; for* they are virgins. These are those who are following the Lamb wherever he goes. These were bought by Jesus from mankind, as the first-fruit to God and to the Lamb, 14:5 and no lie was found in their mouth. They are unblemished.



     14:6 And I saw a messenger flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting good-news to proclaim to those who sit upon the earth and to every nation and tribe and language and people; 14:7 and he says in a loud voice, Fear° the Lord and give° glory to him, because the hour of his judgment has come and worship° the one who made* the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.



     14:8 And another, a second messenger, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, who has given all the nations to drink out of the wine of the fury of her fornication.


     14:9 And another, a third messenger followed them, saying in a loud voice, If anyone is worshiping the beast and his image and receives a mark upon his forehead or upon his hand, 14:10 he will also be drinking out of the wine of the fury of God of which has been mingled undiluted in the cup of his wrath, and he will be tormented in fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy messengers and in the sight of the Lamb; 14:11 and the smoke of their torment is going up forevermore, and they have no rest day and night, who are worshiping the beast and his image and if anyone receives the mark of his name. 14:12 Here is the endurance of the holy-ones, those who are keeping the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.



     14:13 And I heard the voice from heaven saying to me, Write, the dead ones who die in the Lord are fortunate from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, in order that they should rest themselves from their labors, and their works follow after them.



     14:14 And I saw and behold, a white cloud, and upon the cloud I saw one sitting similar to a son of man, having upon his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle. 14:15 And another messenger came out from the temple, crying in a loud voice to the one who sits upon the cloud, Send forth your sickle and reap, because the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe. 14:16 And he who sits upon the cloud cast his sickle upon the earth, and the earth was reaped.



     14:17 Another messenger came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 14:18 And another messenger came out from the altar, he who has authority over the fire, and he shouted to the one who had the sharp sickle with a loud outcry, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle and pick the clusters from the earth, because her grape-clusters were prime. 14:19 And the messenger cast his sickle into the earth and picked the clusters of the vine of the earth and cast it into the winepress, the great winepress of the fury of God. 14:20 And the winepress was trampled on outside the city and there came out blood from the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, up to one thousand six hundred furlongs.



[Revelation 15]



     15:1 And I saw another great and marvelous sign in heaven, seven messengers having seven wounds, which are the last, because the fury of God was completed in them.



     15:2 And I saw like a sea of glass having been mingled with fire, and those who are overcoming from the beast and from his image and from the number of his name, standing upon the glassy sea, having harps of God. 15:3 And they are singing the song of Moses the bondservant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; your ways are righteous and true, the King of the nations. 15:4 Who should never* fear you, Lord, and should glorify your name? Because only you are holy, because all the nations will be coming and will be worshiping in your sight, because your righteousnesses were manifested.



     15:5 And after I saw these things and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in heaven; 15:6 and there came out from the temple the seven messengers who had the seven wounds, they were clothing themselves with clean bright flax-linen and golden belts had been girded around their chests. 15:7 And one out of the four living creatures gave to the seven messengers seven golden bowls full of the fury of God, who lives forevermore. 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power and no one was able to enter into the temple, till the seven wounds of the seven messengers should be completed.



[Revelation 16]



     16:1 And I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven messengers, Go° and pour° out the seven bowls of the fury of God into the earth.



     16:2 And the first went and poured out his bowl into the earth, and it became an evil sore and wicked upon the men who had the mark of the beast and who are worshiping his image.



     16:3 And the second poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of the dead, and every living soul died in the sea.



     16:4 And the third messenger poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of the waters, and it became blood. 16:5 And I heard the messenger of the waters saying, You are righteous, who is and who was, the Holy One, because you judged these things; 16:6 because they poured out the blood of holy-ones and prophets and you gave blood to them to drink because they are worthy. 16:7 And I heard from the altar saying, Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, your judgments are true and righteous.



     16:8 And the fourth messenger poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to burn men in fire. 16:9 And men were burnt with great heat and the men blasphemed the name of God who has the authority over these wounds, and they did not repent to give him glory.



     16:10 And the fifth messenger poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened, and they were gnawing their tongues out of pain, 16:11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven out of their pains and out of their sores, and they did not repent from their works.



     16:12 And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, in order that the way of the kings who come from the rising of the sun might be prepared. 16:13 And I saw out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; 16:14 for* they are spirits of demons, doing signs; which travel out to the kings of the whole inhabited-earth, to gather them together to the war of that great day of God the Almighty. 16:15 (Behold, I am coming like a thief. The fortunate one is watching and keeping his garments, in order that he may not walk naked and in order that they may see his indecency.) 16:16 And they gathered them together into the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.



     16:17 And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air, and there came forth a loud voice from the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It has happened. 16:18 And there became lightnings and thunders and voices, and there became a great earthquake, such-as has not happened from which time men were born upon the earth, so-great an earthquake– so great! 16:19 And the great city became divided into three parts and the cities of the nations fell and Babylon the great was remembered in God's sight, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. 16:20 And every island fled away and the mountains were not found. 16:21 And great hail, approximately a talant's poundage, {i.e. 58-80 lbs.} comes down from heaven upon men and men blasphemed God from the wound of the hail, because its wound is extremely great.



[Revelation 17]



     17:1 And one out of the seven messengers who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, Come-here. I will be showing you the judgment of the great prostitute who is sitting upon many waters; 17:2 with whom the kings of the earth fornicated and those who are dwelling in the earth were made drunken from the wine of her fornication. 17:3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast, being full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 17:4 And the woman having been dressed in purple and scarlet arrayed with gold and precious stone and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup being full of abominations and the unclean things of her fornication of the earth, 17:5 and a name has been written upon her forehead, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Prostitutes and of the Abominations of the Earth. 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken from the blood of the holy-ones and from the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And I marveled when* I saw her– with great marvel! 17:7 And the messenger said to me, Why did you marvel? I will be telling you the mystery of the woman and of the beast bearing her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast which you saw was and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into destruction. 17:8 And those who are dwelling upon the earth will be marveling, those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life from the conception of the world, when* they see the beast, how that he was and is not and will be present*.


     17:9 Here is the mind that has wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains, where the woman is sitting; 17:10 and they are seven kings; the five have fallen, the one is, the other has not yet come, and whenever he comes, it is essential for him to remain a few. 17:11 And the beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is out of the seven, and he is going into destruction. 17:12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings, who did not yet receive a kingdom, but they receive authority like kings, with the beast, for one hour. 17:13 These have one intention and they are giving their power and authority to the beast. 17:14 These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those called and chosen and faithful with him. 17:15 And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, are peoples and crowds and nations and languages. 17:16 And the ten horns which you saw and the beast, these will hate the prostitute and will make her desolate and will make her naked and will eat her flesh and will be burning her up in fire. 17:17 For* God gave to their hearts to do his intention and to do it with one intention and to give their kingdom to the beast, till the words of God should be completed. 17:18 And the woman whom you saw is the great city, which has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.



[Revelation 18]



     18:1 I saw after these things, another messenger coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated from his glory. 18:2 And he cried in a mighty voice, saying, Babylon the great has fallen and it has become a residence of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit and a prison of every unclean and having been hated bird. 18:3 Because out of the wine of the fury of her fornication all the nations have fallen, and the kings of the earth fornicated with her and the merchants of the earth were enriched from the power of her promiscuity.



     18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people, out of her, in order that you° might not have fellowship together in her sins and in order that you° might not receive out of her wounds, 18:5 because her sins were joined to her even up to heaven and God has remembered her wrongdoing. 18:6 Repay° to her as she has also given to you° and you° do this double to her– double° again according to her works; in the cup which she mingled, mingle° to her double again. 18:7 In how-much she glorified herself and was promiscuous, give° to her so-much more torment and mourning, because she says in her heart, I am sitting as a queen and I am no widow and may never* see mourning. 18:8 Because of this, in one day her wounds will come– death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned in fire, because strong is the Lord God who judged her. 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who fornicated and were promiscuous with her, will weep and will grieve over her, whenever they look upon the smoke of her fire, 18:10 standing from afar because of their fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! Because in one hour your judgment has come. 18:11 And the merchants of the earth will weep and will mourn over her, because no one is buying their cargo anymore; 18:12 cargo of {F} gold, silver, precious stone, pearl, fine-linen, purple, silk, scarlet, every citron wood thing, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made out of the most precious wood and from brass, iron and marble; 18:13 and cinnamon, spice, incenses, perfume, frankincense, wine, oil, fine-flour, grain, sheep, other animals, and of horses and of chariots and of bodies and souls of men. 18:14 And the autumn-fruits of lust of your soul have gone away from you and all things which were luxurious and bright have perished from you and you may never* find them anymore. 18:15 The merchants of these things, who were enriched from her, will be standing from afar because of the fear of her torment, while weeping and mourning. 18:16 And they are saying, Woe, woe, the great city, she who has been dressed in fine-linen, and purple and scarlet and has been arrayed in gold, precious stone and pearls! 18:17 Because in an hour so-many riches was made desolate. And every helmsman and everyone who sails any place and sailors and as many as are working from the sea, stood from afar, 18:18 and were crying out, seeing the smoke of her fire, saying, What city is similar to the great city? 18:19 And they cast dirt upon their heads and were crying, weeping and mourning and saying, Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had their ships in the sea were enriched out of her costliness! Because in one hour she was made desolate. 18:20 Be joyous over her: heaven and the holy-ones and the apostles and the prophets, because God has judged your° condemnation from her {Or: on her.}.



     18:21 And a strong messenger took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, So Babylon, the great city, will be cast down, with a violent-impulse, and may never* be found anymore. 18:22 And the voice of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters may never* be heard in you anymore, and every craftsman of every craft may never* be found in you anymore, and the voice of a millstone may never* be heard in you anymore; 18:23 and the light of a lamp may never* appear in you anymore, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride may never* be heard in you anymore. Your merchants were the great-men of the earth, because all the nations were misled in your sorcery. 18:24 And the bloods of prophets and of holy-ones and of all who have been slaughtered upon the earth was found in her. {Mat 23:30-31}



     {Footnotes: Rev 18:12,13, in the list of merchandise 'and' was removed between many of the words and replaced with a comma.}



[Revelation 19]



     19:1 I heard after these things, as it was a large voice of a large crowd in heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation and power and glory, is from our God: 19:2 because true and righteous are his judgments, because he has judged the great prostitute, she who was corrupting the earth in her fornication and he has avenged the blood of his bondservants from her hand.


     19:3 And they have said a second-time, Hallelujah. And her smoke goes up forevermore.


     19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who is sitting upon the throne, saying, Amen. Hallelujah.


     19:5 And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Praise° our God, all his bondservants, and those who fear him, the little and the great.


     19:6 And I heard as it was the voice of a large crowd and like the voice of many waters and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah, because the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns. 19:7 We should rejoice and should be glad and should give the glory to him, because the marriage of the Lamb has come and his wife has prepared herself. 19:8 And it was given to her in order that she might dress herself in fine-linen, bright and clean; for* the fine-linen is the righteousnesses of the holy-ones.


     19:9 And he says to me, Write, the fortunate ones have been invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he says to me, These are true words of God. 19:10 And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he says to me, See that you do not do that. I am a fellow bondservant of you and of your brethren who are holding the testimony of Jesus. Worship God; for* the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.



     19:11 And I saw the heaven has been opened, and behold, a white horse and he who sits upon it being called Faithful and True, and he is judging in righteousness and is making war. 19:12 Now his eyes are a flame of fire and upon his head are many diadems, and he has names written which no one knows except he himself. 19:13 And he has been dressed in a garment, having been dipped in blood and his name is called The Word of God. 19:14 And the armies which are in heaven were following him upon white horses, having clothed themselves in fine-linen, white and clean. 19:15 And a sharp two edged long-sword travels out from his mouth, in order that he might strike the nations with* it and he will shepherd them with* an iron rod and he tramples on the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God, the Almighty. 19:16 And he has upon his garment and upon his thigh a name has been written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.



     19:17 And I saw a messenger standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, Come-here°. Be° gathered together to the great supper of God; 19:18 in order that you° may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit upon them and the flesh of all men, both free men and bondservants and both the little and the great.



     19:19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, have been gathered together to make* a war with the one who sits upon the horse and with his army. 19:20 And the beast was clutched and with him the false prophet who made* the signs in his sight, in which he misled those who had received the mark of the beast and those who are worshiping his image. The two were cast while living into the lake of fire which is burning in brimstone. 19:21 And the rest were killed with* the long-sword of the one who sits upon the horse, which came forth out of his mouth and all the birds were fed from their flesh.



[Revelation 20]



     20:1 And I saw a messenger coming down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 20:2 And he took-hold of the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and the Adversary, the one who is misleading the whole inhabited-earth and bound him a thousand years, 20:3 and cast him into the abyss and locked it and sealed it above him, in order that he may not mislead the nations anymore, till the thousand years might be completed. It is essential for him to be loosed for a little time after these things.



     20:4 And I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given to them and I saw the souls of those who have been decapitated because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God and those who did not worship the beast, nor his image and did not receive the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand, and they lived and reigned with Christ the thousand years. 20:5 And the rest of the dead did not live till the thousand years might be completed. This is the first resurrection. 20:6 The fortunate and holy one is the one who has part in the first resurrection; the second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ and will be reigning with him a thousand years. {Rev 1:6, 5:10}



     20:7 And whenever the thousand years might be completed, the Adversary will be loosed out of his prison, 20:8 and will be going out to mislead the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together into the war. The number of whom is like the sand of the sea. 20:9 And they went up over the width of the earth and surrounded the encampment of the holy-ones and the beloved city and fire from God came down out of heaven and devoured them. 20:10 And the devil who is misleading them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also, and they will be tormented day and night forevermore.



     20:11 And I saw a great white throne and the one who sits upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. 20:12 And I saw the dead, the greatest and the least, standing in the sight of the throne, and books were opened and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life and the dead were judged out of the things which have been written in the books, according to their works. 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them and they were judged each one according to their works. 20:14 And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, which is the lake of fire. 20:15 And if anyone was not found, having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the lake of fire.



[Revelation 21]



     21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for* the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and there is no sea anymore. 21:2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from heaven of God, having been prepared as a bride adorned for* her husband. 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and he will be residing with them and they will be his people and God will be with them. 21:4 And he will be wiping-away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no death anymore. There will be no mourning, no crying, no pain anymore because the first things have passed away.


     21:5 And he who sits upon the throne said, Behold, I am making* all things new. And he says to me, Write, because these are the faithful and true words. 21:6 And he said to me, I have become the Alpha and the Omega, I am the beginning and the end. I will be giving freely to the one who is thirsty out of the spring of the water of life. 21:7 He who overcomes will be inheriting these things, and I will be his God and he will be a son to me.


     21:8 But to the cowardly and unbelieving and sinners and detestable and murderers and fornicators and sorcerers and idolaters and to all the false witnesses, their part will be in the lake which is burning with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.



     21:9 And one out of the seven messengers who had the seven bowls being full of the last seven wounds came and spoke with me, saying, Come-here. I will be showing you the bride, the wife of the Lamb. 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a mountain great and high and showed me the great holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, 21:11 having the glory of God. Her illumination was similar to a precious stone, like a crystal-like jasper stone, 21:12 having a great and high wall, having twelve gates and twelve messengers upon the gates, and names have been written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. 21:13 Three gates were on the east and three gates were on the north, and three gates were on the south, and three gates were on the west. 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 21:15 And he, speaking with me, was holding a measure, a golden reed, in order that he might measure the city and its gates and its wall. 21:16 And the four cornered city is laid, and the length is as the width and he measured the city with the reed in furlongs, {F} twelve thousand and twelve furlongs, the length and the width and its height are equal. 21:17 And he measured its wall, a hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, which is, of a messenger. 21:18 And the structure of its wall was jasper and the city was purest gold, similar to purest glass. 21:19 The foundations of the wall of the city have been adorned with every precious stone. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; 21:20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, carnelian; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, hyacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls apiece; each one of the gates was from one pearl, respectively and the street of the city was purest gold like transparent glass. 21:22 And I saw no temple in it; for* the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 21:23 And the city has no need of the sun, neither of the moon, in order that they should appear in it; for* the glory of God illuminated it and its lamp is the Lamb. 21:24 And the nations will be walking in its light and the kings of the earth bring glory to him and the honor of the nations into it. 21:25 And its gates may never* be locked by day (for* there will be no night there). 21:26 And they will be bringing the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 21:27 And any desecrated thing or anyone practicing an abomination and a lie may never* enter into it; except those who have been written in the Lamb's Book of Life may enter into it.

[Revelation 22]



     22:1 And he showed me a river of the clean water of life, bright like crystal, traveling out from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 22:2 in the middle of its street. And the Tree of Life was on this side and on that side of the river, producing twelve fruits, giving its fruit every month and the leaves of the tree were *for the healing of the nations. 22:3 And every curse will be not be there anymore and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it. And his bondservants will be giving-divine service to him; 22:4 and they will see his face, and his name will be upon their foreheads. 22:5 And there will be no night there, and they do not need a lamp or a light, because the Lord God will be illuminating them and they will be reigning forevermore.



     22:6 And he says to me, These are the faithful and true words and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his messenger to show to his bondservants what things are essential to happen shortly.


     22:7 And behold, I am coming shortly. The fortunate one is keeping the words of the prophecy of this book.



     22:8 And I, John, am the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger who shows these things to me. 22:9 And he says to me, See that you do not do that. I am your fellow bondservant and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who are keeping the words of this book. Worship God.



     22:10 And he says to me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. 22:11 He who is doing wrong, let him still do wrong and the filthy, let him still be filthy and the righteous, let him still practice righteousness and the holy one, let him still be holy.


     22:12 Behold, I am coming shortly, and my reward is with me, to give to each one as his work will be. 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.


     22:14 The fortunate ones are practicing his commandments, in order that their authority will be in the Tree of Life and they may enter in by the gates into the city.


     22:15 The dogs and the sorcerers and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices a lie are outside.



     22:16 I, Jesus, have sent my messenger to testify to you° these things in the congregations*. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.



     22:17 And the Spirit and the bride are saying, Come. And he who hears, let him say, Come. And he who is thirsty, let him come. He who wills, let him take the water of life freely.



     22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone should add onto them, God might add onto him the wounds which have been written in this book. {Deu 4:2?} 22:19 And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God takes away his part from the Tree of Life and out of the holy city, which have been written in this book.



     22:20 He who is testifying of these things says, Yes, I am coming shortly. Amen.



     Yes come, Lord Jesus.



     22:21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with all the holy-ones. Amen.



     {End of the Holy New Covenant: Modern Literal Version. The glory is God's. Amen}
