1 And a reed like a rod was given unto me: saying, Arise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and those worshiping in it. 2 And the outer court of the temple leave out, and measure it not; because it is given to the Gentiles: and they will tread down the holy city forty-two months. 3 And I will give to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive-trees, and the two candlesticks which are standing before the Lord of the earth. 5 And if any one wishes to hurt them, fire goes forth out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any one wishes to hurt them, thus it behooves him to be killed. 6 They have power to shut up the heaven, that the rain may not fall during the days of their prophecy: and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, so often as they may wish.
7 And when they may finish their testimony, the beast which ascends up out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, and conquer them, and slay them. 8 And their dead body will lie in the street of the great city, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where the Lord also was crucified. 9 And those of the peoples and of tribes and of the tongues and of the nations see their dead body three days and a half, and do not suffer their bodies to be put in a sepulchre. 10 And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them, and make merry, and send gifts to one another; because these prophets tormented those dwelling upon the earth.
11 And after three and a half days the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell on those seeing them. 12 And they heard a great voice out of the heaven saying to them, Come up hither; and they ascended up into the heaven in a cloud; and their enemies saw them. 13 And at that hour there was a great earthquake, and the tenth of the city fell, and there were killed by the earthquake seven thousand persons: and the rest were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of the heaven. 14 The second Woe is passed; behold, the third woe comes quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in the heaven, saying, The kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and his Christ; and he will reign until the ages of the ages.
16 And the twenty-four elders, who are before God, who sit upon their thrones, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God, 17 saying, We praise thee, O Lord God Omnipotent who is, and who was; and that thou hast received thy great power, and reigned. 18 And the nations were wroth, and thy wrath has come, and the time of the dead to be judged, and to give reward to thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to those who fear thy name, to the small and to the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.
