King James VersionRevelation11


1 And there was giv­en me a reed like unto a rod: and the an­gel stood, say­ing, Rise, and mea­sure the tem­ple of God, and the al­tar, and them that wor­ship there­in. 2 But the court which is with­out the tem­ple leave out, and mea­sure it not; for it is giv­en unto the Gen­tiles: and the holy city shall they tread un­der foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two wit­ness­es, and they shall proph­esy a thou­sand two hun­dred and three­score days, clothed in sack­cloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two can­dle­sticks stand­ing be­fore the God of the earth. 5 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. 6 These have pow­er to shut heav­en, that it rain not in the days of their prophe­cy: and have pow­er over wa­ters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as of­ten as they will. 7 And when they shall have fin­ished their tes­ti­mo­ny, the beast that as­cen­deth out of the bot­tom­less pit shall make war against them, and shall over­come them, and kill them. 8 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 cru­ci­fied. 9 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 earth­quake, 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 king­doms of this world are be­come the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign 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 Almighty, 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 judged, 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 de­stroy the earth. 19 And the tem­ple of God was opened in heav­en, and there was seen in his tem­ple the ark of his tes­ta­ment: and there were light­nings, and voic­es, and thun­der­ings, and an earth­quake, and great hail.
