It is the bridegroom, who possesses the bride: and the friend of the bridegroom, standing by and hearing him, rejoiceth exceedingly at the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must grow great, but I diminutive. He that cometh from above is above all: he whose origin is from earth is of the earth, and speaketh of the earth: he who cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; though no man receiveth his testimony. He that receiveth his testimony hath avouched that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God hath not given the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath life eternal: and he that believeth not on the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth upon him.

Ye sent to John, and he bore testimony to the truth.



These are they who have not defiled themselves with women; for they are virgins: these are they who follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth: these have been redeemed among men, as first-fruits to God, and to the Lamb.






And there came to me one of the seven angels who held the seven vases full of the seven last plagues, and he talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

Because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will feed them, as a shepherd, and lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.

And they sung the sacred ode of Moses the servant of the Lord, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, O Lord God Almighty; righteous and true are thy ways, O King of saints.

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

AND he shewed me a clear river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

and said to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:


And no accursed thing is there any more; and the throne of God and of the Lamb are in it, and his servants will pay divine worship to him.

And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls which fly in the midst of heaven, Come hither and flock together unto the supper of the great God:

After these things I looked, and beheld a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation, and tribe, and people, and tongue, standing before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches in their hands and crying with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God that sitteth on the throne, and to the Lamb.

And I saw no temple therein; for the Lord God Almighty is the temple thereof, even the Lamb. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine upon it: for the glory of God illuminates it, and the Lamb is the lamp thereof.



And I beheld, and lo! in the midst of the throne, and of the four living beings, and in the midst of the presbyters, stood a lamb as just slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God that are sent forth into all the world:









NOW the law, having a shadow of the good things which were to come, not the very substance of the things, cannot possibly, by the same sacrifices which they offer year by year continually, make those perfect who approach [God];

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new mass, as ye are unleavened. For our passover hath been sacrificed for us, even Christ.

For the bodies of those beasts are burnt without the camp, whose blood for a sin offering is brought into the holy of holies by the high-priest. Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Therefore let us go forth to him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

And every priest standeth indeed daily performing the divine service, and frequently offering the same sacrifices, which cannot possibly take away sins: but this person, having offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever hath seated himself at the right hand of God;

And I beheld, and lo! in the midst of the throne, and of the four living beings, and in the midst of the presbyters, stood a lamb as just slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God that are sent forth into all the world:

NOW the law, having a shadow of the good things which were to come, not the very substance of the things, cannot possibly, by the same sacrifices which they offer year by year continually, make those perfect who approach [God]; else they would have discontinued to make the offering, because they who performed the service being once made clean, would have had no more sense of sins on their conscience. But in these [sacrifices] there is a commemoration of sins every year. read more.
For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sin. Wherefore, coming into the world, he saith, "Sacrifice and oblation thou hast not chosen, but thou hast exactly fashioned a body for me: thou hast had no delight in whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin: then I said, Here am I; (in the volume of the book it is written of me) I come to do thy will, O God." Having said before that sacrifice, and oblation, and whole burnt-offerings and sin-offerings thou hast not chosen, nor takest pleasure in, (which are offered according to the law,) he then added, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He abolishes the first that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the oblation of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all. And every priest standeth indeed daily performing the divine service, and frequently offering the same sacrifices, which cannot possibly take away sins: but this person, having offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever hath seated himself at the right hand of God; henceforth waiting till his enemies be put as a footstool for his feet. For by one oblation he hath made those perfect for ever who are sanctified.


For when every command according to the law had been spoken by Moses to all the people, taking the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, he sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. And the tabernacle also, and all the vessels employed in the divine service, he in like manner sprinkled with blood. read more.
And almost all things are purified by blood according to the law, and without effusion of blood there is no remission of sin. There was a necessity therefore that the representations of the things in heaven should be purified by these; but the celestial things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holies made with hands, the antitypes of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear before the presence of God for us: and not that he should often offer up himself in sacrifice, as the high-priest enters every year into the holies with blood not his own, (for in that case he must have suffered often since the foundation of the world:) but now once for all at the consummation of the ages hath he been manifested for the abolishing sin by the sacrifice of himself. And forasmuch as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment, so Christ having been once offered in sacrifice to bear the sins of men, will appear the second time without sin, to those who expect him, for their salvation.



And I beheld, and lo! in the midst of the throne, and of the four living beings, and in the midst of the presbyters, stood a lamb as just slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God that are sent forth into all the world: and he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that was seated upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four living beings and the four and twenty presbyters prostrated themselves before the lamb, having each harps, and vases of gold, full of perfumes smoaking, which are the prayers of the saints. read more.
And they sung a new song, saying, Worthy art thou to take the book, and to open the seals thereon; because thou hast been slaughtered, and hast redeemed us for God by thy blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation; and hast made us for our God kings and priests, and we shall reign upon the earth. And I looked, and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and the living beings, and the presbyters, and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, crying with a loud voice, Worthy is the slaughtered lamb to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and those who are on the sea, and all things which are therein, heard I, saying, To him who is seated on the throne, and to the lamb, be blessing, and honour, and glory, and might for ever and ever.
