Rev 1:1: THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST, which God gave to Him, to show to His servants what things must needs come to pass with speed, and He signified it sending by His angel to His servant John,

Rev 1:2: who testified of (or, as to) the Word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, what things soever he saw

Rev 1:3: Blessed (or, happy) be he that readeth, and they who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep in mind the things which stand written therein: for the season is near.

Rev 1:4: John to the seven assemblies which are in Asia: Grace to you, and peace, from Him that is, and that was, and that is coming; and from the seven spirits which are before His throne,

Rev 1:5: and from Jesus Christ, the Faithful witness, the First-born of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him that loveth us, and washed (or loosed*) us from our sins by His blood,

Rev 1:6: and He made us to be a kingdom and priests to His God and Father, to Him be the glory and the dominion for ever and ever (Lit., unto the ages of the ages.). Amen.

Rev 1:7: Behold, He cometh with (or, amid the) clouds, and every eye shall see Him, even those very ones who pierced Him, and all the tribes of the Land, will wail because of Him. Yea: Amen.

Rev 1:8: I am Alpha and Omega,* saith the LORD God* that is, and that was, and that is coming, the Almighty.

Rev 1:9: I John even (or, both) your brother, and partaker with you in the tribulation and kingdom and patience which are in* Jesus, (I) came to be in the isle that is called Patmos, because of the Word of God, and* the testimony of Jesus.**

Rev 1:10: I came to be (or, found myself), by the Spirit in the day of the Lord, and I heard behind me a great (i.e., loud) voice, of a trumpet,

Rev 1:11: saying :* What thou seest, write in a book, and send it to (or, for, i.e., for their use) the seven* assemblies** unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Rev 1:12: And I turned to see the Voice which was speaking with me, and, on turning, I saw seven lamp-stands of gold,

Rev 1:13: and in the midst of the seven* lamp-stands One like a son of man, clothed with a robe reaching to the feet, and girt about the breasts with a girdle of gold;

Rev 1:14: His head and hair white, as white wool—as snow (Dan. 7. 9.), and His eyes as a flame of fire;

Rev 1:15: and His feet like unto polished brass (Ezek. 1. 7) glowing as in a furnace; and His voice as the voice of many waters.

Rev 1:16: And having seven stars in His right hand; and out of His mouth a sharp two-edged sword going forth; and His countenance was as when the sun shineth in his strength.

Rev 1:17: And, when I had seen Him, I fell at His feet as dead: and He laid His right hand upon me, saying,*


“Fear not. I am the First and the Last,”


Rev 1:18:


and the Living One, I was dead, indeed, yet behold!, I am living for ever and ever,* and I have the keys of Death and the Grave.” *


Rev 1:19:


“Write therefore* what things thou sawest and what they are, even what things are about to happen hereafter.”


Rev 1:20:


The mystery (i.e., the secret symbol) of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand; and the seven golden lamp-stands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven Assemblies; and the seven lamp-stands* are (i.e., signify) the seven Assemblies.”


Chapter 2 with Greek text and notes linked


Rev 2:1: To the angel of the Assembly in* Ephesus, write; These things saith He that holdeth the seven stars in His right hand (1. 16), He that walketh in the midst of the seven lamp-stands of gold (1. 13);

Rev 2:2: I know thy works, and* labour, and thy endurance (or patience (2. 3)), and that thou canst not bear wicked (or, evil) men; and thou didst try those who call themselves apostles, and are not, and didst find them liars:

Rev 2:3: And thou hast endurance, and didst bear* for the sake of my name, and hast not wearied.**

Rev 2:4: Nevertheless I have this against thee, that thou hast left thy first love.

Rev 2:5: Remember therefore whence thou hast fallen, and repent, and do the first works; otherwise (Lit., but if not) I am coming to thee,* and will remove thy lamp-stand out of its place, except thou repent.

Rev 2:6: But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

Rev 2:7: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith (or is saying) to the Assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life which is in the* Paradise of God.

Rev 2:8: And unto the angel of the Assembly in Smyrna write; These things saith the First and the Last, who was (lit., became) dead, and returned to life (1. 17, 18);

Rev 2:9: I know* thy tribulation, and thy poverty, nevertheless thou art rich, and I know the blasphemy coming from those who say that they themselves are Jews, and they are not, but are Satan's synagogue.

Rev 2:10: Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: lo, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be (lit., become) thou faithful unto death, and I will give to thee the crown of life.

Rev 2:11: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Assemblies.  He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Rev 2:12: And unto the angel of the Assembly in Pergamos, write; These things saith he who hath the sharp two-edged sword:

Rev 2:13: I know* where thou dwellest, even where Satan's throne is: and thou holdest fast my name, and didst not deny my faith, [even]* in the days** of Antipas, my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Rev 2:14: Nevertheless I have against thee a few things, that thou hast there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Rev 2:15: So hast thou also those that hold fast the teaching of the Nicolaitanes (2. 6) in like manner.*

Rev 2:16: Repent therefore*; otherwise I will come unto thee speedily, and will fight against them with the sword (2. 12) of my mouth.

Rev 2:17: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give* of the hidden manna, and I will give unto him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which none knoweth save he that receiveth it.

Rev 2:18: And unto the angel of the Assembly in Thyatira, write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like unto polished brass.

Rev 2:19: I know thy works, and thy love, and thy service, and thy faith,* and thy patient-endurance, and thy last works to be more than the first.

Rev 2:20: Nevertheless I have this against thee,* that thou lettest alone** the***  woman Jezebel, she herself a prophetess, and she teacheth and deceiveth my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.

Rev 2:21: And I gave her space in order that she might repent* and she willeth not to repent of her fornication.

Rev 2:22: Lo! I cast her into a bed, and those who are committing adultery with her (18. 8-10) into great tribulation (Rom. 2. 8, 9, 16), except they repent of her* works,

Rev 2:23: and her children (Ps. 137. 9) will I kill with death (i.e., with pestilence); and all the assemblies shall know (or, get to know) that I am He that searcheth reins and hearts: and will give unto you, each one, according to your works.

Rev 2:24: But, unto you, I say, —the rest* that are in Thyatira, as many as hold not this doctrine, who have not known (or, come to know) the depths of Satan, (as they say); I do not* lay upon you any other burden.

Rev 2:25: Nevertheless, what ye have, hold fast till I come (lit., shall have come).

Rev 2:26: And he that overcometh and keepeth my works (i.e., keepeth in mind, as to ponder over, and understand my judgments) unto the end, —I will give him authority over the nations;

Rev 2:27: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: as vessels of pottery are dashed in pieces: even as I also have received of my Father.

Rev 2:28: And I will give unto him the morning star.

Rev 2:29: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Assemblies.

Rev 3:1: And unto the Angel of the Assembly 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.

Rev 3:2: Be (lit., become) watchful, and strengthen the things that remain, that were* about to die: for I have not found thy works fulfilled (or performed) before my* God.

Rev 3:3: Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and keep it in mind, and repent. If, therefore, thou shalt not watch, I will come* as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Rev 3:4: Nevertheless thou hast a few names* in Sardis, which defiled not their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: because they are worthy.

Rev 3:11: "*I come quickly:  Hold fast that which thou hast, that none take thy crown.

Rev 3:12: Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of my God, and he shall in no wise go forth any more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the New Jerusalem (21. 2, 10), which descendeth out of heaven from my God (21. 10) and [I will write upon him] my new name.

Rev 3:16: Thus, because thou art luke-warm, and neither hot nor cold,* I am about to spue thee out of my mouth.

Rev 3:17: Because thou sayest, I am rich and have become enriched (Hos. 12. 8), And have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched one (Hos. 2. 11; 5. 15), and the miserable (Hag. 1. 6), and poor, and blind, and naked (Hos. 2. 3-10).

Rev 3:18: I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined in the fire (Mal. 3. 3; Hos. 2. 8; Hag. 2. 8), that thou mayest be enriched; and white garments, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness may not be made manifest, and eye-salve to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see.

Rev 3:19: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Rev 3:20: Behold, I am standing (lit., "I have taken my station") at the door, and am knocking: if any one hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Rev 3:21: To him that overcometh will I give to take his seat with me on my throne, even as I also overcame and took my seat with my Father on His throne.

Rev 4:1: After these things, I looked, and, behold a door set open IN HEAVEN: And the former voice which I heard (at the beginning, 1. 10) was as it were of a trumpet speaking with me (1. 10), saying, "Come up hither, and I will show thee what things must come to pass hereafter".

Rev 4:2: *Immediately I came to be in Spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and upon the throne was One sitting.

Rev 4:3: And He that sat was, in appearance like to a jasper stone and a sardius; and there was a rainbow round about the throne, — like, in appearance, to an emerald.

Rev 4:4: And round about the throne (behold) four and twenty thrones; and upon the four and twenty thrones* elders sitting, arrayed in white garments; and on their heads* crowns of gold,

Rev 4:5: and out of the throne go forth lightnings and voices and thunders*; and seven torches of fire are burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God,

Rev 4:6: and (behold) before the throne, like* a glassy sea, like crystal: And in the midst of the throne and around the throne, four Zoa, full of eyes before and behind,

Rev 4:7: and the first Zoon was like a lion, and the second Zoon like an ox, and the third Zoon having the face as a man, and the fourth Zoon like a flying eagle,

Rev 4:8: and the four Zoa had each of them respectively, six wings; around and within they are full of eyes: And they have no cessation day and night, saying,

Lord God Almighty
Who was, and who is, and who is coming.”

        “Worthy art thou, O Lord and our God,
        To receive glory, and honour, and power;
        Because Thou didst create all things,
        And for thy pleasure they were,
*** and are created.”

Rev 5:1: And I saw on the right hand of Him that sitteth upon the throne, a Book (or Roll), written within and on the back, having been sealed with seven seals.

Rev 5:2: And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice —


“Who is worthy to open the Book, and to loose the seals thereof?,”


Rev 5:3: and no one was able, in the heaven nor upon the earth, neither under the earth, to open the Book, or to look at it:

Rev 5:4: and I was weeping much because no one worthy was found to open* the Book or to look at it.

Rev 5:5: And one of the elders saith to me


“Weep not! Behold the Lion which is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, prevailed* so as to open the Book, and shall loose the seven seals of it.”


Rev 5:6: And I saw* in the midst of the throne and of the four Zoa, and in the midst of the Elders — a Lamb, standing as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God, having been sent** into the whole earth.

Rev 5:7: And He came and took it* out of the right hand of Him who sitteth upon the throne.

Rev 5:8: And when He took the Book the four Zoa and the four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb having each a harp*, and golden bowls full of incenses which are the prayers of the Saints;

Rev 5:9: and they sing a New Song, saying;


“Worthy art thou
To take the Book,
And to open the seals thereof,
Because thou wast slain
And didst purchase
* a people for God by thy blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation

Rev 5:10:                                         


And didst make them** to our God” ***

A kingdom*| and priests,
And they reign
|| over the earth.”


Rev 5:11: And I saw and heard* the voice of many angels around the throne, and of the Zoa, and of the elders, and the number of them was myriads of myriads**

Rev 5:12: 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.”


Rev 5:13: And every creature which is in heaven and on* the earth and beneath the earth and such as are in the sea and all that are in them heard I saying;

    “To Him that sitteth upon the throne
    And to the Lamb
        and honour
        and glory
        and might
        For ever and ever.”


Rev 5:14: And the four Zoa said “Amen” and the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped*.


Rev 6:1: And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven* seals, and I heard one of the four Zoa saying, as with a voice of thunder — Go!**

Rev 6:2: And I saw and lo! a white horse, and he that was sitting upon it, having a bow, and there was given unto him a crown ((στεφανος) (stephanos), a triumphal crown), and he went forth conquering, and in order that he might conquer or overcome.

Rev 6:3: And when He opened the second seal I heard the second Zoon saying, Go!*

Rev 6:4: And there went forth another horse, fiery coloured; and to him who sat upon it was given power to take away peace from the earth, and that men should slay one another: and there was given to him a great sword.

Rev 6:5: And when he opened the third seal I heard the third Zoon saying, Go!* And I beheld, and lo! a black horse, and he who was sitting upon it having a pair of balances in his hand.

Rev 6:6: And I heard as** it were a voice in the midst of the four Zoa, saying,

        “A choenix of wheat for a denarius,
        and three choenixes of barley for a
        denarius: and see, thou mayest not
        injure the oil and the wine.”


Rev 6:7: And when he opened the fourth seal I heard the voice of the fourth Zoon, saying Go!*

Rev 6:8: And I saw, and behold, a livid horse, and he who was sitting upon it, his name was Death; and the Grave (Gr. Hades) followed after him: And authority was given to them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword, and with famine and with pestilence, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Rev 6:9: And when he opened the fifth seal I saw under the altar the persons (souls being put by Synecdoche for persons) of those who had been slain on account of the word of God, and on account of the testimony which they held:

Rev 6:10: And they cried with a loud voice (as Abel's blood was said to cry — Gen. 4. 10), saying,

        “How long, O Sovereign-Lord, —
        The Holy and True dost thou not judge and exact vengeance
            for our blood from
* them that dwell upon the earth?”


Rev 6:11: And there was* given to each a white robe. And it was said to them that they should rest (not merely desist from their cry; but wait) yet a little while (i.e., for a short delay, as in 10. 6 and 20. 3) until both their fellow-servants (here we have the correlative of Despotes, as well as their own standing as "servants") and their brethren that were about to be killed, as they also had been, should fill up* the appointed number.

Rev 6:12: And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and* a great convulsion took place, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the full** moon became as blood;

Rev 6:13: and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, as the fig tree casteth her untimely (or winter) figs when shaken by a mighty wind.

Rev 6:14: And the* heaven parted asunder as a scroll rolling itself up;** and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Rev 6:15: And the kings of the earth, and the great men (the civil officers of State), and the chief captains (the military officers), and the rich men,* and the mighty** men, and every bondman and*** free man, hid themselves (running for shelter) into the caves and into the rocks of the mountains.

Rev 6:16: And they say to the mountains and to the rocks,


“Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.”


Rev 6:17: Because the day — the great day of His wrath is come, and who is able to stand?


Rev 7:1: [and]* after this** I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding (or, controlling) the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the land, or on the sea, or upon any tree.

Rev 7:2: And I saw another angel ascending* from the rising of the sun (i.e., 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 injure the land and the sea:

Rev 7:3: saying, "Injure not the earth, or the sea, or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads".

Rev 7:4: And I heard the number of the sealed: an hundred and forty four thousand (144,000) sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel.

Rev 7:5: Of the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand sealed; Of the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand;* Of the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand;*

Rev 7:6: Of the tribe of Aser, twelve thousand;* Of the tribe of Nepthalim, twelve thousand;* Of the tribe of Manasses, twelve thousand;*

Rev 7:8: Of the tribe of Zabulon, twelve thousand;* Of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand;* Of the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand sealed.

Rev 7:9: After these things I saw, and lo, a great multitude, which no one was able to number, out of every nation, and of all tribes and peoples, and tongues (Gen. 10. 5, 20, 31. Dan. 3. 4, 5; 4. 1; 6. 25), standing before the throne, and before the Lamb, arrayed with white robes, and palm branches in their hands;

Rev 7:10: And they cry* with a loud voice, saying,


“Salvation to our God
That sitteth upon the Throne,
And to the Lamb.”


Rev 7:11: And all the angels were standing* around the throne, and around the Elders and the four Zoa, and they fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

Rev 7:12: saying,

    Blessing, and glory, and wisdom,
    and thanksgiving, and honour, and
    power, and might, be unto our
    God, for ever and ever.


Rev 7:13: And one of the Elders answered saying (i.e., by the Figure, Idiom "asked me, saying") unto me,

            “These who are arrayed in white
robes, Who are they? and Whence came they?”

Rev 7:14: and I said,


“my* lord, thou knowest.”


And he said to me,

            “These are they who come out of the Great Tribulation, and they
washed their robes, and made them white through the blood of the Lamb”


Rev 7:15:


“For this cause are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he who sitteth upon the throne shall spread his tabernacle over them.”


Rev 7:16:


“They shall not hunger any more, nor yet thirst any more; neither shall the sun in any wise fall upon them; no, nor any burning heat.”


Rev 7:17:


Because the Lamb that is in the midst of the Throne shall tend them (as a shepherd), and shall lead them unto the fountains of the waters of life:* and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”


Rev 8:1: And when he opened the seventh seal, there was (i.e., became, came on, or followed) silence in heaven about half an hour.

Rev 8:2: and I saw the seven angels who stand in the presence of God; and there was given unto them seven trumpets.

Rev 8:3: And another angel came and took his stand 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 the saints upon the golden altar that was before the throne.

Rev 8:4: And the smoke of the incense went up before God, with the prayers of the saints, out of the hand of the angel.

Rev 8:5: And the angel took the censer, and filled it from the fire of the altar (Lev. 16. 12), and he cast the fire unto the earth: and there were thunderings, and voices, and lightnings,* and an earthquake.

Rev 8:6: And the seven angels who had the seven Trumpets made themselves ready that they might sound them.

Rev 8:7: And the first* sounded his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third of the earth was burned up,* and the third of the trees was burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

Rev 8:8: And the second angel sounded his trumpet, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third of the sea became blood;

Rev 8:9: and there died the third of the creatures which were in the sea, which had life; and the third of the ships were destroyed.

Rev 8:10: And the third angel sounded his trumpet, and there fell from heaven a great star, burning as it were a torch ((λαμπας) (lampas) a torch; not (λυχνος) (luchnos) a lamp. 18. 23; 21. 23), and it fell upon the third of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

Rev 8:11: and the name of the star is called Wormwood ((αψινθος) (apsinthos) Absinthe): and the third of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Rev 8:12: And the fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and the third of the moon, and the third of the stars; in order that the third part of them might be darkened, and the day might not shine for a third of it, and the night in like manner.

Rev 8:13: And I looked, and I heard an (Greek, one, single, or solitary) eagle* flying in mid-heaven, saying with a loud voice,


“Woe, woe, woe, to those that dwell upon the earth by reason of the remaining voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are about to sound!”


Rev 9:1: And the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star from heaven fallen (So RV. Not "fall" as in AV.) to earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss.

Rev 9:2: And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up smoke out of the abyss, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.

Rev 9:3: And out of the smoke there came forth locusts into the earth: and there was given to them power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

Rev 9:4: And it was said to them that they should not injure the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; but should injure the men* who have not the seal of God on their foreheads.

Rev 9:5: And it was given to them 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 it striketh a man.

Rev 9:6: And in those days shall men seek death and shall in no wise* find it; and shall desire to die, and death fleeth**, from them.

Rev 9:7: And the likenesses of the locusts were like to horses prepared for war: and there were upon their heads as it were crowns like unto gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

Rev 9:8: And they had hair, like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth,

Rev 9:9: and they had breastplates like iron breastplates; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses rushing into battle.

Rev 9:10: And they have tails like scorpions, and stings were in their tails: and their power (or license) is to injure men five months.

Rev 9:11: And they have over them a king, the angel of the abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he hath his name Apollyon.

Rev 9:12: The first woe is past; behold, there are coming yet two woes after these things.

Rev 9:13: And the sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Rev 9:14: Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet,


“Loose the four angels which are bound at the river Euphrates.” 

Rev 9:15: And the four angels were loosed, who had been prepared for the hour, and day, and month, and year, that they should kill the third part of men.

Rev 9:16: And the number of the* armies of the horsemen was two myriads of myriads: **(I heard the number of them).

Rev 9:17: And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those sitting on them having breastplates fiery, and hyacinthine, and sulphureous: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths goeth forth fire, and smoke, and brimstone.

Rev 9:18: By these three plagues*** were the third part of men killed, by the fire, and the smoke, and the brimstone, which goeth forth out of their mouths,

Rev 9:19: for the power of the horses is in their mouth, and in their tails*|: for their tails are like serpents, having heads, and with them they do injure.

Rev 9:20: And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues neither repented of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons, nor the* idols which are golden, and silver, and brazen, and stone, and wooden: which are neither able to see, nor to hear, nor to walk:

Rev 9:21: And they repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries (or spiritualism), nor of their fornication (which will be a great feature of the coming religious apostasy), nor of their thefts.


Rev 10:1: And I saw another mighty angel coming down out of heaven, arrayed with a cloud: and the* rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Rev 10:2: and he was holding** in his hand a little scroll opened***: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left upon the earth,

Rev 10:3: And he cried with a loud voice, even as when a lion roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.

Rev 10:4: And when the seven thunders had *spoken, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven, saying**,


“Seal up the things which the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them.”


Rev 10:5: And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea and on the earth lifted up his right hand towards heaven,

Rev 10:6: and sware by Him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heaven, and the things that are therein, and the earth, and the things that are therein, and the sea, and the things that are therein,* that,


“there shall be no longer delay:”


Rev 10:7: But, in the days of the sound of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound his trumpet, then shall have been completed also the secret of God, as he announced the good news to His servants the prophets.

Rev 10:8: And the voice which I heard out of heaven I heard again speaking with me, and saying,


"Go, take the scroll* which lieth open in the hand of the angel that standeth upon the sea and upon the earth."


Rev 10:9: And I went up to the angel, saying unto him,


“Give me the little scroll.”


And he saith unto me,


“Take, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but in thy mouth shall be sweet as honey.”


Rev 10:10: And I took the little scroll out of the hand of the angel, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and when I had eaten it my belly was made bitter.

Rev 10:11: And they say** to me,


“Thou must again prophesy against peoples, and nations, and tongues, and many kings.”


Rev 11:1: And there was given to me a reed like a measuring rod: and he* (i.e., the angel who continued speaking with him) said,


“Rise, and measure the Naos (or Temple) of God, and the altar, and take account of those who worship therein.”


Rev 11:2:


“But the court that is without the Naos (or Temple) cast without, and measure it not; because it is given up to the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”



Rev 11:3:


“And I will endow my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”


Rev 11:4: These are (or represent) the two olive trees, and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord* of the earth.

Rev 11:5: And if any one desireth to injure them, fire goeth forth out of their mouth (2 Kings 1. 10; Jer. 5. 14), and devoureth their enemies: and if anyone desireth to injure them, thus must he be killed.

Rev 11:6: These have authority to shut the heaven (1 Kings 17. 1), so that no rain may fall during the days (the 1260 days) of their prophecy: and they have authority over the waters to turn them into blood, (Ex. 7. 19) and to smite (19. 15) the earth with every plague, as often as they will.

Rev 11:7: And when they shall have finished their testimony, the Beast that cometh up out of the abyss shall make war upon them (12. 17; 13. 7; 19. 19. Dan. 7. 21), and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Rev 11:8: And their dead body* (or corpse) shall lie on the street of the great city, which is called spiritually Sodom, and Egypt, where their* Lord also, was crucified.

Rev 11:9: And the peoples (lit., by Hebrew idiom, "some of the peoples") and tribes and tongues and nations, look upon their corpse* three days and a half, and do not suffer their** corpses to be put into a tomb.***

Rev 11:10: And they that dwell on the earth (the earth-dwellers) rejoice* over them, and make merry,** and shall send*** gifts one to another: because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on the earth.

Rev 11:11: And after three days and a half the breath of life (or life-spirit) from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon those who beheld them.

Rev 11:12: And they heard a loud voice out of heaven, saying to them,


“Come up hither.”


And they ascended up to heaven in the cloud (Acts 1. 9); and their enemies beheld them.

Rev 11:13: And in that same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth part of the city fell, and there were killed in the earthquake seven thousand men: and the rest became affrighted and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Rev 11:14: The second woe is past: behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Rev 11:15: And the seventh angel sounded his trumpet; and there were loud voices in heaven; saying,


“The sovereignty* of the world is become the sovereignty** of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.” (Ex. 15. 18. Ps. 10. 16. Dan. 2. 44; 7. 14).


Rev 11:16: And the twenty-four elders, who, in the presence of God sit upon their thrones, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

Rev 11:17: saying,


“We give thanks to thee, O Lord God, the Almighty, who art, and who wast,* because thou hast taken thy great power and hast reigned.”


Rev 11:18:


And the nations were wroth (Ps. 2. 1; 46. 6), and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, to be judged, and to give the reward to thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to those who fear thy name (i.e., Thee), the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”


Rev 11:19 a: And the temple (Naos) of God which is in heaven was opened,* and there was seen the ark of his covenant in his temple:


Rev 11:19 b:


And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and earthquake, and great hail.


Rev 12:1: And a great sign was seen in heaven: A woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:     

Rev 12:2: And being with child she crieth out,* being in travail, and being in pain to bring forth.

Rev 12:3: And another sign was seen in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems.

Rev 12:4: And his tail draggeth down the third part of the stars of heaven, and he cast them to the earth: And the dragon standeth before the woman that is about to bring forth, that when she should bring forth he might devour her child.

Rev 12:5: And she brought forth a son, a male (i.e., a man-child), who is about to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: And her child was caught away to God, and to* his throne.

Rev 12:6: And the woman fled into the wilderness where she hath a place prepared* there** by God, that there they should nourish her a thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Rev 12:7: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with* the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels,  

Rev 12:8: And they prevailed not; nor was even their place found any more in heaven.

Rev 12:9: And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent; who is called the Devil, and Satan, he who deceiveth the whole world: he was cast down unto the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.

Rev 12:10: And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,* 

“Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ: because the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.”


Rev 12:11:


And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.”


Rev 12:12:


“Therefore Rejoice, ye heavens, and ye who dwell in them. Woe to** the earth and to the sea! because the devil is come down to you, having great fury, knowing that he hath but a short season.”


Rev 12:13: And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he pursued (or persecuted) the woman which brought forth the man-child*.

Rev 12:14: And there was given to the woman the** two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, unto her place, where she is nourished there a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Rev 12:15: And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Rev 12:16: And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Rev 12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have (or keep) the testimony of Jesus.* And he stood upon the sand of the sea.


Rev 13:1: And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads,* and upon his horns (gen.) ten diadems, and upon his heads (acc.) blasphemous names.

Rev 13:2: And the Beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet 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.

Rev 13:3: And I saw* one of (lit., from among) his heads as it were slain to death; and his death-wound was healed: and the whole earth wondered and followed after the Beast.

Rev 13:4: And they worshipped the dragon because* he gave the** (i.e., his) authority to the Beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, 

“Who is like unto the Beast? 
And*** who is able to make war with him?”


Rev 13:5: And there was given to him a mouth speaking great blasphemous things (lit., "great things and blasphemies." The Figure is Hendiadys; for the great things are his blasphemies); and authority was given to him to act thus forty and two months.

Rev 13:6: And he opened his mouth in blasphemies* against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

Rev 13:7: And it was given to him to make war with the saints (Dan. 7. 21; 8. 12, 24; 11. 31. Rev. 11. 7), and overcome them: and there was given unto him authority over every tribe, and people,* and tongue, and nation.

Rev 13:8: And all who dwell upon the earth will worship him, each one whose* name** hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb slain.

Rev 13:9: If any one hath an ear let him hear.

Rev 13:10: If any one is for the captivity,* into captivity he goeth: if any one is to be killed with the sword with the sword he is killed. Here is the patience (i.e., patient endurance) and the faith of the saints.

Rev 13:11: And I saw another Beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Rev 13:12: And he exerciseth all the authority of the first Beast before him (i.e., in his presence), causeth the earth and those who dwell therein that they shall worship* the first Beast, who was healed of his deadly wound.

Rev 13:13: And he worketh great signs (i.e., miracles), so that he causeth even fire to come down out of heaven to the earth before men,

Rev 13:14: And he deceiveth those who dwell on the earth by reason of the signs (miracles) which it was given him to work before the Beast: Ordering those who dwell on the earth, to make an image to the Beast, who hath the sword-wound, and lived.

Rev 13:15: And it was given to him to give breathe to the image of the Beast, that the image of the Beast should speak, and cause also that as many as would not worship the image of the Beast should be killed.

Rev 13:16: And he (i.e., the Second Beast) causeth all, even the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, to receive* a mark on their right hands, or upon their foreheads:

Rev 13:17: **That no one should be able to buy or sell, except he who has the mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name.

Rev 13:18: Here is wisdom. He who hath understanding let him calculate the number of the Beast: for it is man's number; and its number is Six hundred and sixty-six.


Rev 14:1: And I saw, and behold the* Lamb standing upon Mount Zion, and with him an hundred and forty-four thousand, having his name and His Father's name** written upon their foreheads.

Rev 14:2: And I heard a voice out of heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as a voice of great thunder: and the voice which* I heard was as that of harpers, harping with their harps:

Rev 14:3: And they sung, as it were, a new song before the Throne, and before the four Zoa, and the Elders: and no one was able to learn the song except the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been purchased from the earth.

Rev 14:4: These are they who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are they who follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, a first-fruit to God and to the Lamb.

Rev 14:5: And in their mouth was not found the lie,* for** they are blameless.***

Rev 14:6: And I saw another* angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel to announce unto those that dwell on the earth, and unto** every nation and tribe, and tongue, and people,

Rev 14:7: saying with a loud voice,


“Fear God, and give glory to Him; because the hour of His judgment is come: and worship him that made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of water.”

Rev 14:8: And another, a second* angel followed, saying, 

“Fallen, fallen, is Babylon the great,** which*** hath given all the nations to drink of the exciting wine of her fornication.”


Rev 14:9: And another,* a third Angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: 

“If anyone worshippeth the Beast and his image, and receiveth his mark on his forehead, or on his hand,”


Rev 14:10:


“even he shall drink of the wine of God's fury, which is mingled undiluted in the cup of his wrath; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the angels, and in the presence of the Lamb;”


Rev 14:11:


“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day and night, who worship the Beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark (or brand) of his name.”


Rev 14:12: Here is the patient endurance of the saints: who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.


Rev 14:13: And I heard a voice from heaven saying:*


“Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth:”


“Yea”, saith the Spirit, “that they may rest from their troubles, for* their works follow them.”


Rev 14:14: And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud I saw one sitting like unto the Son of Man, having upon His head a golden crown (stephanos), and in His hand a sharp sickle.

Rev 14:15: And another Angel came out of the Temple (Naos), crying with a loud voice to Him that sat on the cloud, 

“Put in Thy sickle, and reap: because the hour is come *to reap; because the harvest of the earth is ripe.”


Rev 14:16: And He that sat upon the cloud put forth His sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Rev 14:17: And another angel came out of the Temple (Naos) which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

Rev 14:18: And another angel came out of the altar who* hath authority over its fire: and he cried with a loud voice to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, 

“Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripened.” 

Rev 14:19: And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Rev 14:20: And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even up to the bits of the horses, to the distance of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.


Rev 15:1: And I saw another sign in Heaven, great and marvellous: seven angels having the last seven plagues (or, seven plagues, which are the last); because in them was completed the wrath (or fury) of God:

Rev 15:2: And I saw, as it were, a glassy sea mingled with fire: and those that had gotten the victory from the Beast, and from his image, and from* the number of his name, standing upon the glassy sea, having harps of God (i.e., Divine or Sacred harps).

Rev 15:3: And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, 

“Great and marvellous are Thy works, O Lord God, the Almighty: Righteous and true are Thy ways, Thou King of the nations.” *

Rev 15:4:

“Who should not fear,** O Lord, And glorify Thy name? Because thou only are holy: Because all the nations shall come and worship before Thee: Because Thy righteous judgments were manifested.”

Rev 15:5: And after these things I looked, and* the Temple (Naos) of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in heaven:

Rev 15:6: and the seven angels who** had the seven plagues, came forth out of the temple (Naos), arrayed with precious*** brilliant stone,|| and girt about their breasts with golden girdles.

Rev 15:7: And one of the four Zoa gave to the seven angels seven golden Vials (or Bowls) full of the fury of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

Rev 15:8: And the Naos (or Holiest) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the Naos, until the seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished.


Rev 16:1: And I heard a loud voice out of the Temple (Naos), saying to the Seven Angels, 

“Go forth, and pour out the seven* Vials of the fury of God into the earth.”

Rev 16:2: And the first went forth, and poured out his Vial into* the earth; and there broke out a noisome and grievous sore upon** the men who had the mark (or brand) of the Beast, and upon those who were worshipping his image.

Rev 16:3: And the second* poured out his Vial into the sea: and it became blood, as of one dead; and every living soul died that was in the sea.

Rev 16:4: And the third* poured out his Vial into the rivers, and** the fountains of waters; and they became blood.

Rev 16:5: and I heard the angel of the waters saying, 

"Righteous art Thou***, who art and wast,|| Holy ||* art Thou, because thou didst judge these things.”

Rev 16:6:

“For they shed the blood of saints and prophets, And thou hast given them blood to drink; — ||**They deserve it!”

Rev 16:7: And I heard (the angel of)||*** the altar saying, 

“Even so, Lord God, the Almighty, True and righteous are Thy judgments.”

Rev 16:8: And the fourth [angel*] poured out his Vial upon the Sun; and it was given to him to scorch men with fire.

Rev 16:9: And men were scorched with vehement heat, and they blasphemed the name of God (i.e., God Himself), who hath authority over these plagues: and they repented not, to give Him glory.

Rev 16:10: And the fifth [angel*] poured out his Vial upon the throne of the Beast: and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues from their pain,

Rev 16:11: and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores (16. 2), and repented not and turned not from their works.

Rev 16:12: And the sixth [angel*] poured out his Vial upon the great river the** Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings that come from the East might be prepared.

Rev 16:13: And I saw going forth out of the mouth of the Dragon, and out of the mouth of the Beast, and out of the mouth of the False Prophet, three unclean spirits, as it were* frogs.

Rev 16:14: (For they are demon spirits working miracles), which go forth to the kings** of the whole world to gather them together to the*** battle of that great day of God, the Almighty.

Rev 16:15:

[“Behold I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”]

Rev 16:16: And they (i.e., the demon spirits of verse 14) gathered them (i.e., the kings and their armies) together unto the place which is called in Hebrew Har-mageddon.*

Rev 16:17: And the seventh [angel*] poured his Vial upon** the air; and there came forth a loud voice out of*** the Temple (Naos),|| from the throne, saying, "It is done."

Rev 16:18: And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders;* and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since man was on the earth, so mighty an earthquake, or so great.

Rev 16:19: And the great city became divided (or split) into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell; and great Babylon came into remembrance before God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Rev 16:20: And every island fled away, and certain mountains were not found.

Rev 16:21: And a great hail, as of a talent's weight, falleth out of heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; because the plague thereof is exceedingly great.


Rev 17:1: And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven Vials, and talked with me, saying,* 

“Come hither; I will show to thee the judgment of the great harlot [of that great City], that sitteth upon many waters: [that reigneth over the kings of the earth (17. 18), and over peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues (17. 15)]

Rev 17:2:

“With whom the kings of the earth committed fornication [have practised idolatry,*] , and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication. [and the inhabitants of the earth have been made to partake of HER idolatrous worship.]

Rev 17:3: And he (i.e., the angel) carried me away by the spirit into the* wilderness; and I saw a woman [that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth (17. 18)] sitting upon [supported by] a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, [which was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (17. 8), even he who is the eighth king, and is of the seven (17. 11),] having seven heads [kings (17. 10), which support that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth (17. 9, 18)] and ten horns [kings which are contemporaneous and which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings at one and the same time with the Beast (17. 12), who is the eighth king (17. 11), that was, and is not, and shall be present (17. 8).]

Rev 17:4: And the woman (i.e., the great city, 17. 18 [that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth (17. 18)]) was arrayed (or beautified) in (with) purple (Judg. 8. 26. Est. 1. 6), and scarlet, and bedecked (adorned) with gold and precious stone and pearls, having a golden cup (Jer. 51. 7) in her hand [a wondrous and attractive idolatrous system] full of abominations and having the unclean things of her fornication: [provisions for her idolatrous practices.]

Rev 17:5: And upon her forehead a name written, — a secret sign. "BABYLON THE GREAT," the mother of the harlots and of the abominations of the earth.

Rev 17:6: And I saw the woman (i.e., the great city, 17. 18 [that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth (17. 18)]) drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Jesus: and I wondered when I saw her [the city], with great wonder.

Rev 17:7: And the angel said to me,

“Wherefore didst thou wonder? I will tell thee the secret (i.e., the meaning of the secret sign) of the woman, and of the Beast that carrieth her, that hath the seven heads and the ten horns.”

Rev 17:8:

The Beast which thou sawest was, and is not; and is about to ascend out of the Abyss, and to go* into perdition: and those who dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose name** is not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the Beast; because he was, and is not, and shall be present.” ***”

Rev 17:9: Here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are (or represent) seven mountains [and they are (or represent) seven kings. 17. 10] on which the woman sitteth,

Rev 17:10: and they are (or represent) seven kings: Five are fallen, the* one (the sixth) is (at this stage of the Vision), the other (the seventh), is not yet come, and when he shall have come, he must remain a short time.

Rev 17:11: And the beast that was, and is not, even he himself is an eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Rev 17:12: And the ten horns which thou sawest are (i.e., represent) ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom; but they receive authority as kings at one and the same hour (i.e., at the same time or season) with the Beast.

Rev 17:13: These have one mind (i.e., the same view, intent, and consent), and give up their power and authority unto the beast.

Rev 17:14: These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them: because he is Lord of lords and King of kings; and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Rev 17:15: And he saith to me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot (i.e., "the great city") sitteth, are (i.e., represent) peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Rev 17:16: And the ten horns which thou sawest, and* the beast, these shall hate the harlot (i.e., that great city), and shall make her desolate and naked (i.e., shall loot the city and strip it), and shall eat her flesh (i.e., take possession of her treasures), and shall burn (i.e., the city) with fire.

Rev 17:17: For God put it (lit., gave it) into their hearts to carry out (lit., to do) His mind, and to carry out their own mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God shall be accomplished.

Rev 17:18: And the woman whom thou sawest is that great city, which exerciseth sovereignty over the kings of the earth.


Rev 18:1: *After these things I saw another** angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lighted up with his glory.

Rev 18:2: And he cried with a mighty voice,* saying, 

“Fallen, fallen** is Babylon the great, and is become a habitation of demons (see Isa. 47. 11; 21. 9), and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird.”

Rev 18:3:

“Because all the nations have drunk of the exciting wine* of her fornication and he kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth waxed rich through the power (or abundance) of her luxury."

Rev 18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 

"Come out of her, My people, That ye may not partake of her sins, And that ye receive not of her plagues.”

Rev 18:5:

"Because her sins reached* up to heaven, and God remembered her iniquities.”

Rev 18:6:

“Render to her 
As she also rendered
* to others, 
And render double punishment
According to her works: 
In the cup which she mixed, 
Mix for her double.”

Rev 18:7:

“In proportion as she glorified herself, 
and waxed wanton, 
So much torment and mourning 
give to her: Because in her heart, she saith,

‘I sit a Queen, and a widow I am not; and mourning I shall in no wise see’ ”

Rev 18:8:

“for this cause, in one day, shall come her plagues—death, and mourning, and famine (Isa. 47. 9); and with fire shall she be utterly burned up; because strong is the Lord God who judged* her.”

Rev 18:9:

“And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and waxed wanton with her, shall weep, and wail over her, as soon as they see the smoke of her burning,”

Rev 18:10:

“tanding afar off on account of the fear of her torment, saying,

‘Alas, alas, the great city Babylon, the mighty city! for in one hour has thy judgment come.’ ”

Rev 18:11:

“And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her; because no one any longer buyeth their cargo (Acts 21. 3. Ex. 23. 5):”

Rev 18:12:

“the cargo of gold, and of silver, and of precious stones, and of pearls, and of fine linen, and of purple, and of silk, and of scarlet, and all thyine wood, and every article of ivory, and every article of most costly wood, and of brass, and of iron and of marble,”

Rev 18:13:

“and cinnamon, and spice,* and odours (for incense), and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and finest flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and of horses, and of chariots, and of slaves** and men.” ***

Rev 18:14:

“And the harvest of thy soul's desire departed from thee, and all the things that were dainty and brilliant have perished|| from thee, and they (men) shall never more at all find them.”

Rev 18:15:

The merchants of these things (viz., in verses 12, 13), who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off on account of the fear of her torment, wailing and mourning,”

Rev 18:16:

“* saying,

‘Alas! alas! the great city, which was arrayed in fine linens, and purple, and scarlet, and bedecked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!’ ”

Rev 18:17:

“for in one hour is so great riches come to naught.”

“And every shipmaster, and everyone that saileth any whither,* and mariners, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,”

Rev 18:18:

and cried out as they looked upon the smoke of her burning, saying, 

‘What city is like unto this great city?’ ”

Rev 18:19:

And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, wailing and mourning, saying, 

‘Alas! alas! the great city, wherein were made rich all that had their ships in the sea, by reason of her costliness!** for in one hour is she made desolate.’ ”

Rev 18:20:

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye saints,* and ye apostles, and ye prophets: for God hath executed your judgment (or avenged** you) upon her.”

Rev 18:21: And a mighty angel took up a stone as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, 

“Thus, with violence (or, with a rush) shall Babylon, that great city, be cast down, and Shall be found no more at all (Jer. 51. 63. Ezek. 26. 21).”

Rev 18:22:

“And sound of harpers, and musicians, and flute players, and trumpeters, 
Shall never be heard in thee anymore; 
And no craftsman, of any craft 
Shall ever be found in thee anymore; 
And sound of millstone 
Shall ever be heard in thee anymore;” 

Rev 18:23:

“And the light of a lamp 
Shall never shine in thee anymore: 
And the voice of the bridegroom or bride 
Shall never be heard in thee anymore: 
Because thy merchants were the great ones of the earth: because by thy sorcery were all the nations deceived.
(Is. 47. 8, 9).”

Rev 18:24: And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all the slain upon the earth.


Rev 19:1: *After these things I heard as it were** a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying,

“Hallelujah! the Salvation, and* the glory, and the power of** our God are come”

Rev 19:2:

“for true and righteous are His judgments; for He hath judged the great harlot, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and He hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand.”

Rev 19:3: And a second time they say (Greek, have said)


And her smoke goeth up for ever and ever.

Rev 19:4: And the four and twenty elders and the four Zoa fell down and worshipped God, who sitteth upon the throne, saying, 

“Amen: Hallelujah!”

Rev 19:5: And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, 

“Give praise to our God, all ye His servants (Ps. 134. 1)
And ye that fear Him, both small and great
(Ps. 115. 13).”

Rev 19:6: And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as it were the voice of many waters, and as it were the voice of many thunders, saying, 

“Hallelujah! For the Lord our* God, the omnipotent, reigneth.” 

Rev 19:7:

“Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, 
And give the glory unto Him: 
For the marriage of the Lamb is come. 
And his wife hath made herself ready.”

Rev 19:8: And it was given to her that she should be arrayed in fine linen raiment, bright and pure: for the fine linen raiment is the righteous awards of the saints.

Rev 19:9: And he saith to me, Write,

“Blessed are they that are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

And he saith to me,

“These are the true words of God.”

Rev 19:10: And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith to me,

“See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee, and with thy brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: Worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Rev 19:11: And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat thereon was called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.

Rev 19:12: And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and upon His head were many diadems: and He had a name written, that no one knew, but He Himself.

Rev 19:13: And He was arrayed with a garment dyed* (or stained) with blood; and his name is called,

"The Word of God"

Rev 19:14: And the armies which* are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure.

Rev 19:15: And out of His mouth proceedeth a sharp sword (see 1. 16; 2. 12, 16), that with it (as invested with it) He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness* of the wrath of God the Almighty.

Rev 19:16: And He hath upon His vesture and on His thigh a name written,


Rev 19:17: And I saw one—an angel— standing in the Sun; And he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in mid-heaven, 

"Come, be gathered* together unto God's great supper;” **

Rev 19:18:

that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of chief-captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit thereon, and the flesh of all, both free and bond, both small and great.”

Rev 19:19: And I saw the Beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war with Him that sitteth on the horse, and with His army.

Rev 19:20: And the Beast was taken, and with him the False Prophet who wrought the miracles before him (13. 11-17), with which he deceived those that had received the mark of the Beast, and those who worshipped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire which burneth with brimstone.

Rev 19:21: And the rest were killed with the sword of him that sitteth upon the horse, which sword proceedeth out of his mouth: And all the birds were satiated with their flesh.


Rev 20:1: And I saw an angel descending out of heaven, having the key of the Abyss, and a great chain in his hand.

Rev 20:2: And he laid hold of the dragon,— the old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Rev 20:3: and cast him into the Abyss, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years be completed: Afterward he must be loosed a little season.

Rev 20:4: And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [they judged, i.e., vindicated, 18. 20] those that were beheaded (lit., the souls of those who were beheaded, but see below) on account of the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and whosoever* did not worship (i.e., had not worshipped) the Beast, nor yet his image, and did not receive the (his) mark (13. 16) on their foreheads, and on their hands, both lived again and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Rev 20:5: *The rest of the dead lived not again until* the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection.

Rev 20:6: Blessed and holy is he who hath part in the first resurrection; over these the second death hath not power (or authority), but they shall be (and continue) priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a* thousand years.

Rev 20:7: And when the thousand years are completed, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Rev 20:8: And will go out to deceive the Nations which are in the four corners of the earth, God and Magog, to gather them together to the (predicted) war: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Rev 20:9: And they went up upon the breadth of the Land, and encompassed the citadel of the saints, and the beloved city: and there came down fire out of heaven,* and devoured them.

Rev 20:10: And the Devil that deceived them was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where both* the Beast and the False Prophet are, and they shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev 20:11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat thereon, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and no place was found for them.

Rev 20:12: And I saw the dead, the great and small, standing before the throne;* and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life: And the dead were judged out of the things written in the books, according to their works.

Rev 20:13: And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and Death and the Grave (Hades, 1. 18; 6. 8) gave up the dead that were in them: And they were judged, each one, according to their works.

Rev 20:14: And Death and the Grave were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, even the lake of fire.*

Rev 20:15: And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.


Rev 21:1: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the former heaven and the former earth were passed away, and there was no more sea.

Rev 21:2: And I* saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev 21:3: And I heard a loud voice out of the throne* saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell (or tabernacle) with them, and they shall be His People, and God Himself shall be with them,** and be their God.

Rev 21:4: And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither sorrow nor mourning, nor crying; neither shall there be any more pain: because the former things are passed away.

Rev 21:5: And He that sitteth upon the throne said,

“Behold, I make all Things new.”

And He saith,*

“Write: because these words are faithful and true.”

Rev 21:6: And He said to me, 

“They** are accomplished. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that thirsteth of the fountain of the water of life, freely.”

Rev 21:7:

He that overcometh shall inherit these things***; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

Rev 21:8:

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Rev 21:9: And there came* one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the last seven plagues, and talked with me, saying, 

“Come hither, I will show thee the Bride, the Lamb's wife.”

Rev 21:10: And he carried me away by (the) spirit (or in spirit) to a mountain great and high, and showed me the holy* city Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

Rev 21:11: having the glory of God: her radiance was like a stone most precious, even as a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Rev 21:12: And it had a wall great and high, and twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are (the names*) of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel:

Rev 21:13: On the east three gates; and** on the north three gates; and** on the south three gates; and** on the west three gates.

Rev 21:14: And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on*** them twelve*| names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Rev 21:15: And he that talked with me had a measuring-rod of gold to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

Rev 21:16: And the city lieth four square, and its length is as great as its breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, 12,000 stadia (Eng., furlongs). The length and the breadth, and the height of it are equal.

Rev 21:17: And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Rev 21:18: And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

Rev 21:19: And the foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was a jasper (dark green, and transparent, with red veins): the second, a sapphire (azure blue, almost transparent): the third, a chalcedony (a kind of agate or onyx, probably bluish-white, and semi-transparent): the fourth, an emerald (a vivid green):

Rev 21:20: the fifth, a sardonyx (a mixture of chalcedony and cornelian, a flesh colour): the sixth, a sardius (probably the cornelian, the red being sometimes vivid): the seventh, a chrysolite (yellow or gold in colour, and transparent): the eighth, a beryl (of a sea-green colour): the ninth, a topaz (to-day a yellow, but among the ancients it was a pale green): the tenth, a chrysoprasus (pale yellow and green, classed by moderns under topaz): the eleventh, a jacinth (a deep red flame colour or violet colour): the twelfth, an amethyst (a violet colour).

Rev 21:21: And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates respectively was of one pearl: and the street (or street material) of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Rev 21:22: And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb, are the Temple of it.

Rev 21:23: And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon, that they should shine on her:* for the glory of God illumined her, and the Lamb is her light.

Rev 21:24: And the nations* shall walk (or travel) by means of her light: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory** into her.

Rev 21:25: And her gates shall never be shut at all by day: for night shall not exist there (it will be always day).

Rev 21:26: And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations unto it.

Rev 21:27: And there shall never enter into her anything unclean, or whosoever worketh abomination, and a lie (or a lying abomination): but only (lit., except) those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.


Rev 22:1: And he showed me a* river of living water, clear as crystal, going forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Rev 22:2: In the midst of the street of (the city) and of the river, on this side and on that side, was there the tree of life (i.e., trees of that kind), producing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit according to each month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations (which are thus distinguished from the Citizens of the Holy City).

Rev 22:3: And there shall be no longer any curse: and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in her: and His servants shall serve Him;

Rev 22:4: and they shall see His face: and His name shall be on their foreheads.

Rev 22:5: And there shall be no longer** any night: and they have no need of a lamp or (lit., and) light of the sun; because the Lord God will give them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev 22:6: And he said unto me,

“These words are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the spirits* of the prophets sent his angel to show unto His servants things which must come to pass speedily.”

Rev 22:7:

“And* behold, I come quickly: Blessed is he that keepeth the words of the prophecy of this book.”

Rev 22:8: And I John was he who heard and saw these things.* And when I heard and saw them I feel down to worship before the feet of the angel who was showing me these things.

Rev 22:9: And he saith to me,

“Beware; do it not: **I am a fellow-servant of thine, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book: Worship God.”

Rev 22:10: And he saith unto me,

“Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.”

Rev 22:11:

“He that is unjust (pres. part. of condition), let him act unjustly still (aor., relating to acts, not to condition): and he that is defiled (morally polluted), let him defile himself still: and he that is righteous, let him work* righteousness still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”

Rev 22:12:

“*Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man as his work is.” **

Rev 22:13:

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

Rev 22:14: Blessed are they that do His commandments (or wash their robes*), that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Rev 22:15: Without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolators, and whosoever loveth and practiseth a lie

Rev 22:16:

“I Jesus sent mine angel (1. 1) to testify unto you these things in the assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright, the Morning Star."

Rev 22:17: And the Spirit and the Bride say,

“Come thou, ”

And let him that heareth (these things) say,

“Come thou.”

And he that thirsteth, let him come. And he who willeth (or desireth to enter), let him take of the living water freely.

Rev 22:18: I *testify unto everyone that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If anyone add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book:

Rev 22:19: And if anyone take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree* of life, and [out of] the holy city, which are written in this book.

Rev 22:20: He who testifieth these things saith,

“Surely I come quickly. Amen.”

Rev 22:21: The grace of* the Lord Jesus Christ** be with all the Saints. Amen.***
