3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living things and the elders.[a] The only ones who could learn the new song were the 144,000 who had been saved from the earth. No one else could learn the song. 4 These 144,000 are the ones who did not do sinful things with women. They kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb every place he goes.

They are without fault.Read full chapter
