1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 Then he hurled him into the abyss, closed it, and sealed it over him, to keep him from leading the nations astray anymore, until the thousand years are at an end; after that he must be let loose a little while.
4 Then I saw thrones and those who were seated on them, and permission was granted them to pass judgment, even those who had been beheaded for bearing testimony to Jesus and for preaching the word of God, who refused to worship the wild beast and his statue, and would not let his mark be stamped upon their foreheads and upon their hands. They lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years had ended. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is the man who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death will have no power, but they will be priests of God and Christ, and reign with Him the thousand years.
7 When the thousand years have ended, Satan will be let loose from his prison. 8 He will go forth to lead astray the nations that are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, and to muster them for battle, and their number will be like the sands of the seashore. 9 They came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, and the beloved city. Then fire came down from heaven and consumed them. 10 Then the devil who led them astray was hurled into the fiery lake of burning brimstone, where the wild beast and false prophet were, and there they are to be tortured day and night forever and ever.
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who was seated on it, from whose presence earth and sky fled away, no more to be found. 12 I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened; it was the book of life, And the dead were judged by what was written in the books in accordance with what they had done.
13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and the underworld gave up the dead that were in them, and they were all judged in accordance with what they had done. 14 Then death and the underworld were hurled into the fiery lake, This is the second death -- the fiery lake. 15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was hurled into the fiery lake.
