(A)And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For (B)the[a] Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for (C)the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And (D)to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, (E)for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

Then he said to me, “Write: (F)‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, (G)“These are the true sayings of God.” 10 And (H)I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, (I)“See that you do not do that! I am your (J)fellow servant, and of your brethren (K)who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the (L)testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Christ on a White Horse

11 (M)Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, (N)a white horse. And He who sat on him was called (O)Faithful and True, and (P)in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 (Q)His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. (R)He [b]had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 (S)He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called (T)The Word of God. 14 (U)And the armies in heaven, (V)clothed in [c]fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now (W)out of His mouth goes a [d]sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And (X)He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. (Y)He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And (Z)He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:


The Beast and His Armies Defeated

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, (AB)“Come and gather together for the [e]supper of the great God, 18 (AC)that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, [f]free and slave, both small and great.”
