1 Then I looked, and behold, athe Lamb was standing on bMount Zion, and with Him cone hundred and forty-four thousand, having dHis name and the dname of His Father written eon their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like athe sound of many waters and like the bsound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of charpists playing on their harps. 3 And they sang aa new song before the throne and before the bfour living creatures and the celders; and dno one could learn the song except the eone hundred and forty-four thousand who had been apurchased from the earth. 4 aThese are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who bfollow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been cpurchased from among men das first fruits to God and to the Lamb. 5 And ano lie was found in their mouth; they are bblameless. 6 And I saw another angel flying in amidheaven, having ban eternal gospel to preach to cthose who live on the earth, and to devery nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 and he said with a loud voice, "aFear God, and bgive Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who cmade the heaven and the earth and sea and dsprings of waters." 8 And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, "aFallen, fallen is bBabylon the great, she who has cmade all the nations drink of the dwine of the passion of her immorality." 9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone aworships the beast and his bimage, and receives a cmark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the awine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength bin the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with cfire and brimstone in the presence of the dholy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 "And the asmoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; bthey have no rest day and night, those who cworship the beast and his cimage, and whoever receives the dmark of his name." 12 Here is athe perseverance of the saints who bkeep the commandments of God and ctheir faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, "Write, 'aBlessed are the dead who bdie in the Lord from now on!'" "Yes," csays the Spirit, "so that they may drest from their labors, for their edeeds follow with them." 14 Then I looked, and behold, a awhite cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one blike a son of man, having a golden ccrown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15 And another angel acame out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "bPut in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the charvest of the earth is ripe." 16 Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel acame out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel, athe one who has power over fire, came out from bthe altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "cPut in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, dbecause her grapes are ripe." 19 So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into athe great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And athe wine press was trodden boutside the city, and cblood came out from the wine press, up to the horses' bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles.
