The Sealed of Israel
1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, aholding the four winds of the earth, bthat the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
2 Then 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 granted to harm the earth and the sea,
3 saying, a“Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God bon their foreheads.”
4 aAnd I heard the number of those who were sealed. bOne hundred and forty-four thousand cof all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
5 of the tribe of
6 of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;
7 of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi
twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;
8 of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
A Multitude from the Great Tribulation
9 After these things I looked, and behold, aa great multitude which no one could number, bof all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, cclothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, a“Salvation belongs to our God bwho sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
11 aAll the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and bworshiped God,
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in awhite robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, 1“Sir, you know.” So he said to me, a“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and bwashed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will adwell among them.
16 a“They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; bthe sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;
17 “for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne awill shepherd them and lead them to 1living fountains of waters. bAnd God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

athe prayers of all the saints upon bthe golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And athe smoke of the , with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.
5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And athere were noises, thunderings, blightnings, cand an earthquake.
6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck
7 The first angel sounded: aAnd hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown bto the 1earth. And a third cof the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck
8 Then the second angel sounded: aAnd something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, band a third of the sea cbecame blood.
9 aAnd a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck
10 Then the third angel sounded: aAnd a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, band it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.
11 aThe name of the star is Wormwood. bA third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.
Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck
12 aThen the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day 1did not shine, and likewise the night.
13 And I looked, aand I heard an 1angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, b“Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
Fifth Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit
1 Then the fifth angel sounded: aAnd I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to bthe 1bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the asun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.
3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, aas the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 They were commanded anot to harm bthe grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have cthe seal of God on their foreheads.
5 And 1they were not given authority to kill them, abut to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 In those days amen will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
7 aThe shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. bOn their heads were crowns of something like gold, cand their faces were like the faces of men.
8 They had hair like women’s hair, and atheir teeth were like lions’ teeth.
9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was alike the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle.
10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had as king over them athe angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is 1Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name 2Apollyon.
12 aOne woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
Sixth Trumpet: The Angels from the Euphrates
13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the agolden altar which is before God,
14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound aat the great river Euphrates.”
15 So the four angels,who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year,were released to kill a athird of mankind.
16 Now athe number of the army bof the horsemen was two hundred million; cI heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; aand the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.
18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.

19 For 1their power is in their mouth and in their tails; afor their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.
20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, adid not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship bdemons, cand idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.
21 And they did not repent of their murders aor their 1sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
