1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one
hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.
2 And I heard a sound from Heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound
of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
3 And they sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures,
and the elders; and no one was able to learn that song except the hundred and forty-four
thousand who were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are
the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He leads. These were redeemed from among
men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without blemish before the throne
6 And I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the eternal gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth; to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people;
7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; also, do homage to Him who made the heavens and the earth, the sea and springs of water.
8 And another angel followed, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city,
because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her sexual perversion.
9 And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If anyone does homage to the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,
10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full

God and the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me, Write: Blessed are the dead who die
in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and
their works follow with them.
14 And I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of
Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came forth out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who
sat on the cloud, Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap,
for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and
