1 And there was given to me a reed, like a staff, one Saying, "Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and those worshipping therein. 2 And the court which is without the temple leave without, and measure it not; because it was 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, that stand before the Lord of the earth. 5 And, if anyone wishes to injure them, fire issues out of their mouth, and devours their enemies; and, if anyone wishes to injure them, he must in this manner be slain. 6 These have authority to shut the heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy; and they have authority over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they may wish.
7 And when they finish their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their corpses will lie on the street of the great city, which, spiritually, is called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord also was crucified. 9 And some of the peoples, and tribes, and tongues, and nations, look upon their corpses three days and a half; and they suffer not their corpses to be put into a tomb. 10 And those who dwell on the earth rejoice over them, and make merry, and they will send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented those dwelling on the earth.
11 And, after the three days and a half, the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell on those who beheld them. 12 And they heard a great voice out of Heaven, saying to them, "Come up hither." And they went up into Heaven, in the cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell; and there were killed in the earthquake seven thousand persons; and the rest became terrified, and gave glory to the God of Heaven. 14 The second woe departed; behold, the third woe comes quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there followed great voices in Heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world became our Lord's and His Christ's; and He will reign forever and ever."
16 And the twenty-four elders who sit before God on their thrones fell on their faces, and worshiped God, 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 didst reign. 18 And the nations were angered, and Thy anger came, 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, the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth."
19 And the Temple of God that is in Heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His Temple; and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail.
