Revelation Chapter 11

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 11

1-3 And there was given me a reed like a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and those who worship therein. But the court outside the temple leave out, and do not measure it, for it is given to the Gentiles: and they shall tread on the holy city for foot forty-two months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

4-6 These are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man tries to hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. And if any man tries to hurt them, he must be killed in this manner. These have the power to shut heaven so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they want.

7-10 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, and will overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord was also crucified. Then they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three and a half days, and will not allow their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another; because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

11-13 And after three and a half days, the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake, seven thousand people were killed: and those remaining were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past. And, behold, the third woe is coming quickly.

15-18 And the seventh angel sounded, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders, who sat before God on their seats, fell on their faces and worshiped God, Saying, We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which are, which was, and which is to come; because you have taken your great power and have reigned. The nations were angry, and your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should reward your servants the prophets, and the saints, and those who fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them who destroy the earth.

19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of his covenant was seen in the temple. And there was lightning and noises and thunderings and an earthquake and great hail.
