66:001:001 The 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
66:001:002 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of
Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
66:001:003 Blessed 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.
66:001:004 John 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
66:001:005 And 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,
66:001:006 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to
him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
66:001:007 Behold, 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, Amen.
66:001:008 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the
Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the
66:001:009 I 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.
66:001:010 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a
great voice, as of a trumpet,
66:001:011 Saying, 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.
66:001:012 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being
turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
66:001:013 And 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.
66:001:014 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;
and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
66:001:015 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
66:001:016 And 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.
66:001:017 And 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:
66:001:018 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.
66:001:019 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which
are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
66:001:020 The 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 seven churches.
66:002:001 Unto 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;
66:002:002 I 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
66:002:003 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast
laboured, and hast not fainted.
66:002:004 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast
left thy first love.
66:002:005 Remember 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
66:002:006 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the
Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
66:002:007 He 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.
66:002:008 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things
saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
66:002:009 I 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.
66:002:010 Fear 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.
66:002:011 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the
66:002:012 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things
saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
66:002:013 I 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.
66:002:014 But 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.
66:002:015 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
66:002:016 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight
against them with the sword of my mouth.
66:002:017 He 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
66:002:018 And 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;
66:002:019 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy
patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the
66:002:020 Notwithstanding 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.
66:002:021 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she
66:002:022 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit
adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent
of their deeds.
66:002:023 And 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.
66:002:024 But 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.
66:002:025 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
66:002:026 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to
him will I give power over the nations:
66:002:027 And 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
66:002:028 And I will give him the morning star.
66:002:029 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:001 And 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.
66:003:002 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are
ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before
66:003:003 Remember 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.
66:003:004 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled
their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they
66:003:005 He 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
66:003:006 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:007 And 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 man openeth;
66:003:008 I 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.
66:003:009 Behold, 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.
66:003:010 Because 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.
66:003:011 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that
no man take thy crown.
66:003:012 Him 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.
66:003:013 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:003:014 And 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;
66:003:015 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot.
66:003:016 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I
will spue thee out of my mouth.
66:003:017 Because 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:
66:003:018 I 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.
66:003:019 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore,
66:003:020 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.
66:003:021 To 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.
66:003:022 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto
66:004:001 After 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.
66:004:002 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was
set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
66:004:003 And 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.
66:004:004 And 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.
66:004:005 And 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.
66:004:006 And 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.
66:004:007 And 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.
66:004:008 And 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.
66:004:009 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him
that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
66:004:010 The 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,
66:004:011 Thou 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.
66:005:001 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a
book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven
66:005:002 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is
worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
66:005:003 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
66:005:004 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and
to read the book, neither to look thereon.
66:005:005 And 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.
66:005:006 And 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.
66:005:007 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
that sat upon the throne.
66:005:008 And 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.
66:005:009 And 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;
66:005:010 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall
reign on the earth.
66:005:011 And 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
66:005:012 Saying 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.
66:005:013 And 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.
66:005:014 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders
fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
66:006:001 And 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.
66:006:002 And 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 conquer.
66:006:003 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second
beast say, Come and see.
66:006:004 And 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 great sword.
66:006:005 And 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.
66:006:006 And 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.
66:006:007 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of
the fourth beast say, Come and see.
66:006:008 And 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.
66:006:009 And 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:
66:006:010 And 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?
66:006:011 And 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.
66:006:012 And 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;
66:006:013 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig
tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty
66:006:014 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
66:006:015 And 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;
66:006:016 And 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:
66:006:017 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able
66:007:001 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four
corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth,
that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea,
nor on any tree.
66:007:002 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the
seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the
four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the
66:007:003 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their
66:007:004 And 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.
66:007:005 Of 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.
66:007:006 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
66:007:007 Of 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.
66:007:008 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
66:007:009 After 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;
66:007:010 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God
which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
66:007:011 And 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,
66:007:012 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our
God for ever and ever. Amen.
66:007:013 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these
which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
66:007:014 And 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
66:007:015 Therefore 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.
66:007:016 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither
shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
66:007:017 For 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.
66:008:001 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in
heaven about the space of half an hour.
66:008:002 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them
were given seven trumpets.
66:008:003 And 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.
66:008:004 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of
the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
66:008:005 And 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.
66:008:006 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared
themselves to sound.
66:008:007 The 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
66:008:008 And 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;
66:008:009 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and
had life, died; and the third part of the ships were
66:008:010 And 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;
66:008:011 And 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.
66:008:012 And 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
66:008:013 And 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!
66:009:001 And 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
66:009:002 And 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.
66:009:003 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and
unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have
66:009:004 And 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
66:009:005 And 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.
66:009:006 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it;
and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
66:009:007 And 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.
66:009:008 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were
as the teeth of lions.
66:009:009 And 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.
66:009:010 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings
in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
66:009:011 And 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.
66:009:012 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more
66:009:013 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four
horns of the golden altar which is before God,
66:009:014 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the
four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
66:009:015 And 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.
66:009:016 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred
thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
66:009:017 And 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
66:009:018 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire,
and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of
66:009:019 For 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.
66:009:020 And 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
66:009:021 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their
sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
66:010:001 And 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:
66:010:002 And 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,
66:010:003 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when
he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
66:010:004 And 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.
66:010:005 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the
earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
66:010:006 And 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:
66:010:007 But 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.
66:010:008 And 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
66:010:009 And 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.
66:010:010 And 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.
66:010:011 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many
peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
