1 And after these things I heard a great voice of a numerous multitude in heaven, saying, "alleluia; salvation, glory, honour, and power unto the Lord our God: 2 for just and right are his judgments; for he hath condemned the grand prostitute, who corrupted the earth with her licentiousness, and hath avenged the blood of his servants that were shed by her hand."
4 Then the four and twenty elders, and the four animals fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, "amen; alleluia."
5 and a voice came out of the throne, saying, "praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great."
6 and I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, which was like the sound of many waters, or like a volley of thunder, saying, "alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent does reign." 7 let us rejoyce, and triumph, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the lamb is come, and his spouse is already adorn'd. 8 for she was permitted to be arrayed in fine linnen, clean and white: for the fine linnen represents the virtues of the saints."
9 and he said unto me, "write, happy are they who are invited to the marriage-supper of the lamb." and he said to me, "thus I have delivered the real oracles of God." 10 then I fell at his seet to worship him: but he said to me, "forbear: I am the servant of God, as you and your brethren are, that bear testimony to Jesus: worship God: for to give testimony to Jesus, is the very design of prophecy."
11 Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse appear'd; and he that sat upon him was called the faithful and the true: in righteousness he judges and makes war: 12 his eyes were as a flame of fire, on his head were many crowns: and a name inscrib'd which no one comprehended, but himself: 13 he had a vesture dipt in blood: and his name is called, the logos of God. 14 and the armies of heaven followed him upon white horses, cloathed in fine linnen, white and clean. 15 out of his mouth went a sharp sword, in order to smite the nations: for he shall rule them with an iron sceptre: and tread the wine-press of the fierce vengeance of almighty God. 16 on the mantle about his thigh was this inscription, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 I saw likewise an angel standing upon the sun; and he cryed with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, "come and gather your selves together to the supper of the great God; 18 that ye may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses, and of those that ride on them, the flesh of all that are free, and all that are slaves, both small and great."
19 Then I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, with their armies assembled, to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 and the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles in his favour, by which he seduc'd those that had received the mark of the beast, and those that worshipped his image. these were both cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 all the rest were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were satiated with their flesh.
