Revelation 7

Revelation 7

1John seeth four angels holding the four winds; 2and another angel coming to seal the servants of God in their foreheads. 4The number of them that were sealed out of each of the tribes of Israel. 9An innumerable multitude out of all other nations stand before the throne in white robes, with palms in their hands, praising God and the Lamb. 11The angels, elders, and beasts, worship and glorify God. 13One of the elders sheweth John who they are that are clad in white robes, and what is their blessedness for ever.

1 And after 1these things I saw 2four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding 3the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, 1having the seal of 2the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, 3to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, 1Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have 2sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

4 1And I heard the number of them which were sealed: 2and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

9 After this I beheld, and, lo, 1a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, 2clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

10 1And cried with a loud voice, saying, 2Salvation to our God 3which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11 1And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

12 Saying, 1Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13 And 1one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they 1which came out of great tribulation, and 2have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 Therefore are they 1before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

16 1They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne 1shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: 2and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
