Modern Literal Version
[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 arehis 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, PraiseĎ 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, whiteand 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 a name which has been written as, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, both upon his garment and upon his thigh.

     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-hereĎ. BeĎ gathered together to the great supper of God;19:18 in order that youĎ 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.
