Then I saw aan angel coming down from heaven, holding the bkey of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
And he laid hold of the adragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bbound him for a thousand years;
and he threw him into the aabyss, and shut it and bsealed it over him, so that he would cnot deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.
Then I saw athrones, and bthey sat on them, and cjudgment was given to them. And I saw dthe souls of those who had been beheaded because of their etestimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not fworshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. aThis is the first resurrection.
aBlessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the bsecond death has no power, but they will be cpriests of God and of Christ and will dreign with Him for a thousand years.
When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be areleased from his prison,
and will come out to adeceive the nations which are in the bfour corners of the earth, cGog and Magog, to dgather them together for the war; the number of them is like the esand of the seashore.
And they acame up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the bcamp of the saints and the cbeloved city, and dfire came down from heaven and devoured them.
And athe devil who adeceived them was thrown into the blake of fire and brimstone, where the cbeast and the cfalse prophet are also; and they will be dtormented day and night forever and ever.
Then I saw a great white athrone and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence bearth and heaven fled away, and cno place was found for them.
And I saw the dead, the agreat and the small, standing before the throne, and bbooks were opened; and another book was opened, which is cthe book of life; and the dead awere judged from the things which were written in the books, daccording to their deeds.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and adeath and Hades bgave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them caccording to their deeds.
Then adeath and Hades were thrown into bthe lake of fire. This is the csecond death, the lake of fire.
And if anyone's name was not found written in athe book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
