The Reapers

14 Then I looked, and behold, a (A)white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one (B)like [a]a son of man, having a golden (C)crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15 And another angel (D)came out of the [b]temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “[c](E)Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the (F)harvest of the earth [d]is ripe.” 16 Then He who sat on the cloud [e]swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.

17 And another angel (G)came out of the [f]temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel, (H)the one who has power over fire, came out from (I)the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “[g](J)Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters [h]from the vine of the earth, (K)because her grapes are ripe.” 19 So the angel [i]swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into (L)the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And (M)the wine press was trodden (N)outside the city, and (O)blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, [j]for a distance of [k]two hundred miles.

And I saw something like a (A)sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had (B)been victorious [a]over the (C)beast and (D)his image and the (E)number of his name, standing on the (F)sea of glass, holding (G)harps of God. And they *sang the (H)song of Moses, (I)the bond-servant of God, and the (J)song of the Lamb, saying,

(K)Great and marvelous are Your works,
(L)O Lord God, the Almighty;
Righteous and true are Your ways,

For Your [c](P)righteous acts have been revealed.”
