1And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:2For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.3And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.4And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.5And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.6And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.9And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.21And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Rejoicing in Heaven
1After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, (Re 4:11; Re 7:10; Re 11:15; Re 12:10)2for his judgments are true and just; for he has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality, and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” (De 32:43; 2Ki 9:7; Re 6:10; Re 15:3; Re 16:6; Re 16:7; Re 17:1)3Once more they cried out, “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.” (Isa 34:10; Re 14:11; Re 18:9; Re 18:18)4And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” (Re 4:4; Re 4:6; Re 4:10; Re 5:14)5And from the throne came a voice saying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great.” (Ps 22:23; Ps 113:1; Ps 134:1; Ps 135:1; Re 11:18)
11Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. (Ps 96:13; Isa 11:4; Eze 1:1; Re 3:7; Re 3:14; Re 6:2)12His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. (Pr 30:4; Re 1:14; Re 2:17; Re 2:18; Re 12:3; Re 19:16)13He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. (Isa 63:2; Joh 1:1)14And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. (Re 3:4; Re 7:9; Re 14:20)15From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. (Isa 11:4; Isa 63:3; 2Th 2:8; Re 1:16; Re 2:27; Re 12:5; Re 14:20; Re 19:21)16On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. (Re 17:14; Re 19:12)17Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God, (Isa 34:6; Jer 12:9; Jer 46:10; Eze 39:17; Eze 39:19; Re 19:21)18to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.” (Eze 39:18; Eze 39:20)19And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who was sitting on the horse and against his army. (Re 11:7; Re 13:1; Re 16:16)20And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. (Da 7:11; 2Th 1:8; Re 13:11; Re 13:15; Re 14:10; Re 16:13; Re 20:10; Re 20:14; Re 21:8)21And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh. (Re 19:15; Re 19:17)
