The Lamb and the 144,000

14

1 Then I looked, and behold, 1a aLamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him bone hundred and forty-four thousand, 2having His Father’s name cwritten on their foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, alike the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of bharpists playing their harps.
3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song aexcept the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, afor they are virgins. These are the ones bwho follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These cwere 1redeemed from among men, dbeing firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
5 And ain their mouth was found no 1deceit, for bthey are without fault 2before the throne of God.

The Proclamations of Three Angels

6 Then I saw another angel aflying in the midst of heaven, bhaving the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—cto every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—
7 saying with a loud voice, a“Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; band worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
8 And another angel followed, saying, aBabylon1 is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because bshe has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, a“If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his bmark on his forehead or on his hand,
10 “he himself ashall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is bpoured out full strength into cthe cup of His indignation. dHe shall be tormented with efire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
11 “And athe smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
12 aHere is the 1patience of the saints; bhere2 are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying 1to me, “Write: a‘Blessed are the dead bwho die in the Lord from now on.’ ” “Yes,” says the Spirit, c“that they may rest from

20 And athe winepress was trampled boutside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, cup to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred 1furlongs.

2 And I saw something like aa sea of glass bmingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, cover his image and 1over his mark and over the dnumber of his name, standing on the sea of glass, ehaving harps of God.
3 They sing athe song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the bLamb, saying:

c“Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! dJust and true are Your ways, O King of the 1saints!
4 aWho shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are bholy. For call nations shall come and worship before You,
