New American Standard Bible
3 And I will grant authority to my two (A)witnesses, and they will prophesy for (B)1,260 days, clothed in (C)sackcloth.” 4 These are the (D)two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, (E)fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; and so if anyone wants to harm them, (F)he must be killed in this way. 6 These have the power to (G)shut up the sky, so that rain will not fall during (H)the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to (I)turn them into blood, and (J)to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.
7 When they have finished their testimony, (K)the beast that comes up out of the (L)abyss will (M)make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie on the street of the (N)great city which [a]spiritually is called (O)Sodom and (P)Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. 9 Those from (Q)the peoples, tribes, languages, and nations will look at their dead [b]bodies for three and a half days, and [c](R)will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. 10 And (S)those who live on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will (T)send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented (U)those who live on the earth.
11 And after the three and a half days, (V)the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “(W)Come up here.” And they (X)went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them. 13 And [d]at that time there was a great (Y)earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; [e]seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and (Z)gave glory to the (AA)God of heaven.Read full chapter
