A B C D THE REV­E­LA­TION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE - CHAP­TER ELEVEN3 And then was given me a reed like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and mete the tem­ple of God, and the al­tar, and them that worship therein and the choir which is within the tem­ple cast out and mete it not: for it is given unto the gen­tiles and the holy city shall they tread un­der foot forty-two months. And I will give power unto my two wit­nesses, and they shall proph­esy one thou­sand three hun­dred and sixty days, clothed in sack­cloth. Th­ese are two olive trees, and two can­dle­sticks, stand­ing be­fore the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire shall pro­ceed out of their mouths, and con­sume their en­e­mies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. Th­ese have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their proph­esy­ing: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all man­ner plagues, as of­ten as they will.

And when they have fin­ished their tes­ti­mony, the beast that came out of the bot­tom­less pit shall make war against them and shall over­come them, and kill them. And their bod­ies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spir­i­tu­ally is called Sodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was cru­ci­fied. And they of the peo­ple and kin­dreds, and tongues, and they of the na­tions, shall see their bod­ies three days and an half, and shall not suf­fer their bod­ies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall re­joice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to an­other for th­ese two prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.

And af­ter three days and an half the spirit of life from God, en­tered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, say­ing unto them. Come up hither. And they as­cended up into heaven in a cloud, and their en­e­mies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earth­quake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earth­quake were slain names of men seven thou­sand and the rem­nant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The sec­ond woe is past, and be­hold the third woe will come anon.

And the seventh an­gel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, say­ing: the king­doms of this world are our Lord’s and his Christ’s, and he shall reign for ever­more. And the twenty-four elders, which sit be­fore God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and wor­shipped God say­ing: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast re­ceived thy great might, and hast reigned. 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 saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest de­stroy them, which de­stroy the earth. And the tem­ple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his tem­ple, the ark of his tes­ta­ment: and there fol­lowed light­nings, and voices, and thun­der­ings and earth­quake, and much hail.
