Reaping the Earth’s Harvest

14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel (A)came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, (B)“Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come [a]for You to reap, for the harvest (C)of the earth is ripe.” 16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

Reaping the Grapes of Wrath

17 Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, (D)who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, (E)“Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.” 19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into (F)the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20 And (G)the winepress was trampled (H)outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, (I)up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred [b]furlongs.
