The Revelation of St John the Divine

Chapter 11

In the last days, two prophets will be slain in Jerusalem—After 3½ days, they will be resurrected—Christ will reign over all the earth.

 And there was given me a areed like unto a rod: band the angel stood, saying, Rise, and cmeasure the temple of God, and the daltar, and them that worship therein.

 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the aholy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

 And I will give apower unto my two bwitnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to aturn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all bplagues, as often as they will.

 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall aovercome them, and bkill them.

 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was acrucified.

 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

 10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

 11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

 13 And the same hour was there a great aearthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

 15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The akingdoms of this world are become the bkingdoms of our Lord, and of his cChrist; and he shall dreign for ever and ever.

 16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God aAlmighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be ajudged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which bdestroy the earth.

 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the aark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great bhail.
