A And af­ter that I saw four an­gels stand on the four cor­ners of the earth, hold­ing the four winds of the earth, that the winds should not blow on the earth, nei­ther on the sea, nei­ther on any tree. + And I saw another an­gel as­cend from the ris­ing of the sun: which had the seal of the liv­ing God, and he cried with a loud voice to the four an­gels (to whom power was given to hurt the earth and the sea) say­ing: Hurt not the earth nei­ther the sea, nei­ther the trees, till we have sealed the ser­vants of our God in their fore­heads.

B And I heard the num­ber of them which were sealed, and there were sealed an hun­dred and forty-four thou­sand of all the tribes of the chil­dren of Is­rael. 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. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thou­sand. Of the tribe of Neph­talim were sealed twelve thou­sand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thou­sand. 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. 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.

C Af­ter this I be­held, and lo a great mul­ti­tude (which no man could num­ber) of all na­tions and peo­ple, and tongues, stood be­fore the seat, and be­fore the lamb, clothed with long white gar­ments, and palms in their hands, and cried with a loud voice, say­ing: sal­va­tion be as­cribed to him that sit­teth upon the seat of our God, and unto the lamb. And all the an­gels stood in the com­pass of the seat, and of the el­ders and of the four beasts, and fell be­fore the seat on their faces, and wor­shipped God, say­ing, amen: Bless­ing and glory, wis­dom and thanks, and hon­our, and power and might, be unto our God for ev­er­more, Amen.

D And one of the el­ders an­swered, say­ing unto me: what are these which are ar­rayed in long white gar­ments, and whence came they? And I said unto him: Lord thou wottest. And he said unto me: these are they which came out of great tribulation and made their gar­ments large and made them white in the blood of the lamb: there­fore are they in the pres­ence of the seat of God and serve him day and night in his tem­ple, and he that sit­teth in the seat will dwell among them. They shall hunger no more nei­ther thirst, nei­ther shall the sun light on them, nei­ther any heat: For the lamb which is in the midst of the seat shall feed them, and shall lead them unto foun­tains of liv­ing wa­ter, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
