And he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as though it had been struck to death; and his death-stroke was healed: and the whole earth wondered after the beast; 4 and they worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? And who is able to war with him? 5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty-two months. 6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against Yahweh, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, even them that dwell in the heaven. 7 And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, every one whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that has been killed. 9 If any man has an ear, let him hear. 10 If any man is for captivity, into captivity he goes: if any man shall kill with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he makes the earth and them that dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed. 13 And he does great signs, that he should even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who has the stroke of the sword and lived. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to it, even to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given to them a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead; 17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, except he that has the mark, even the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. He that has understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of man; and his number is Six hundred, Sixty, Six.
And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and the voice I heard was as the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3 and they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn the song except the hundred forty-four thousand, even they that had been purchased out of the earth. 4 These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they that follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were purchased from among men, to be the firstfruits to Yahweh and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.
6 And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having eternal good tidings to proclaim to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 and he says with a great voice, Fear Yahweh, and give him glory; for the hour of his judgment has come: and worship him that made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters.
8 And another, a second angel, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, that has made all the nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead, or on his hand, 10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahweh, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 and the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, they that worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints; They that keep the commandments of Yahweh, and the faith of Yahshua.
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in Yahshua from now on: yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them.
14 And I saw, and behold, a white cloud; and on the cloud I saw one sitting like the son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out from the temple, crying with a great voice to him that sat on the cloud, Send forth your sickle, and reap: for the hour to reap has come; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud cast his sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, he that has power over fire; and he called with a great voice to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel cast his sickle into the earth and gathered the vintage of the earth, and cast it into the winepress, the great winepress, of the wrath of Elohim. 20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and there came out blood from the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, as far as a thousand six hundred furlongs.
And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having seven plagues, which are the last, for in them is finished the wrath of Elohim.
2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and them that come off victorious from the beast, and from his image, and from the number of his name, standing by the sea of glass, having harps of Yahweh. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of Yahweh, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvelous are your works, Oh Yahweh El Shaddai;
righteous and true are your ways, you King of the ages.
4 Who shall not fear, Oh Yahweh, and glorify your name?
For you only are holy; for all the nations shall come and worship before you;
for your righteous acts have been made manifest.
5 And after these things I saw, and the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6 and there came out from the temple the seven angels that had the seven plagues, arrayed with precious stone, pure and bright, and girded about their breasts with golden girdles. 7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of Yahweh, who lives forever and ever. 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of Yahweh, and from his power; and none was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished.
