DASV: Revelation 18
1 After these things I saw another angel coming down out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth was brightened by his glory.
2 He shouted out with a mighty voice:
"Fallen, Babylon the great is fallen,
and is become a dwelling place for demons,
and a haunt for every unclean spirit
and every unclean and disgusting beast.
3 All the nations have fallen
because of the wine of the passion of her immorality.
The kings of the earth have had sex with her,
and the merchants of the earth have grown rich
from her extravagant luxury."
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
"Come out of her, my people,
so that you have no share in her sins,
and so that you do not receive her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached as high as heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
6 Pay her back just as she has repaid others.
Repay her double for her deeds.
In the cup she mixed for others,
mix double for her.
7 However much she glorified herself and lived in luxury,
give that much torment and grief to her.
Since she tells herself, 'I rule as a queen.
I am no widow.
I will never have to grieve.'
8 Therefore in just one day plagues will overcome her--
death, mourning, and famine.
She will be totally burned down;
for the Lord God who judges her is mighty."
9 Then the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they look on the smoke of her being burnt up.
10 They will stand at a distance because they are afraid of her torment, saying,
"Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the mighty city!
For in just one hour your judgment has come."
11 Then the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one will buy their merchandise anymore--
12merchandise of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet; all types of citron wood, all kinds of ivory objects, and all kinds of objects made of expensive wood, bronze, iron, marble;
13 and cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle, sheep, horses and chariots and slaves, that is, human beings.
14 The fruits you desired are gone from you, and all luxury and splendor are lost from you, never ever to be found.
15 The merchants selling these things, who got rich from her, will stand at a distance for the fear of her torment. They will weep and mourn,
"Woe, woe, the great city,
the one dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet clothes,
and decked out with gold, precious stones and pearls!
17 For in just an hour so much wealth was destroyed."
Every ship captain, and all sailors and as many as earn their living from sea, stood at a distance,
18 and cried out as they looked at the smoke of her burning, "What city is like the great city?"
19 Then they threw dust on their heads, and crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, "Woe, woe, the great city,
in which all who had their ships in the sea
had become rich from her wealth!
For in just one hour she has been laid waste.
20 Rejoice over her, O heaven,
and you saints, apostles, and prophets;
for God has rendered judgment on her on your behalf."
21 Then a mighty angel picked up a stone like a large millstone and threw it into the sea, saying,
"This is how Babylon, the great city will violently be thrown down,
and will never be found again.
22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flute players and trumpeters
will never again be heard in you.
No craftsman, of any kind of trade, will ever be found in you.
The sound of the mill will never again be heard in you.
23 The light of a lamp will never again shine in you.
The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will never again be heard in you.
For your merchants were the greatest on the earth;
and all the nations were deceived by your magic.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints,
along with all who had been slain on the earth."
DASV: Revelation 19
1 After these things I heard what sounded like a loud clamor of a great multitude in heaven, saying,
"Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
2 for his judgments are true and just.
For he has judged the great prostitute,
who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality,
and he has avenged on her the blood of his servants."
3 A second time they exclaimed,
"Hallelujah! Her smoke goes up forever and ever."
4 Then the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying,
6 Then I heard what sounded like a loud clamor of a great multitude, and like the roar of many waters, and like the rumblings of mighty thunder, saying,
"Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and be happy,
and let us give the glory to him,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
8 She was allowed to clothe herself in fine linen,
bright and pure."
For the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 Then he said to me, "Write this: Blessed are they who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." He said to me, "These are true words of God."
10 I fell down before his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "Don't do that. I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
11 Then I saw the heaven open and there was white horse. He who rode on it was called Faithful and True, and he judges and makes war with righteousness.
12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems. He has a name written which no one knows except himself.
13 He is dressed in a garment sprinkled with blood, and his name is called, The Word of God.
14 The armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses.
15 Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it he might strike the nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron, and he treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.
16 He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written:
King of kings, and Lord of lords.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice telling all the birds that fly high overhead, "Come and be gathered together to the great supper of God,
18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of generals, and the flesh of the mighty, and the flesh of horses and those who ride on them, and the flesh of everyone, both slave and free, and both small and great.
19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth along with their armies, gathered together to make war against him who rode on the horse and against his army.
20 But the beast was caught along with the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
21 The rest were killed with the sword of him who rode on the horse, by the sword that came out of his mouth. All the birds gorged themselves with their flesh.
DASV: Revelation 20
1 Then I saw an angel coming down out of heaven having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 He seized the dragon, the old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
3 He threw him into the bottomless pit, then shut and locked it up over him, so that he could not deceive the nations anymore until the thousand years were finished. After that he must be released for a little while.
4 Then I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony for Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast, or his image, or received the mark on their forehead or on their hand. They lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
5 The rest of the dead did not live until the thousand years was finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is anyone who has part in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him for a thousand years.
7 When the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison.
8 He will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for battle. Their number was like the sand of the sea.
9 They marched up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. Then fire came down out of heaven and devoured them.
10 The devil, who had deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet were too. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it, from whose presence the earth and heaven fled away and there was no place found for them.
12 I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before the throne. The books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life and the dead were judged according to their works from the things written in the books.
13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them. They too were judged, each person according to their works.
14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15 If anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
DASV: Revelation 21
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.
3 Then I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look, the dwelling place of God is among humankind. He will live with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them.
4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, nor will there be any more mourning, crying, or pain. The former things have passed away."
6 Then he said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give free water to the one who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life.
7 The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be my son.
8 But to the cowardly, unbelieving, corrupt, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their fate will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who had the seven last plagues came and told me, "Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
10 So he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
11 It has the glory of God, her brilliance was like a rare jewel, like jasper, clear as crystal.
12 It had a thick and high wall with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.
13 There were three gates on the east, and three gates on the north, and three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
15 The angel who spoke with me had a golden measuring rod to measure the city, and its gates and the walls.
16 The city was a square, with its length the same as its width. He measured the city with the rod. It was 1400 miles with the length and width and the height all being equal.
17 He also measured its wall, which was 216 feet thick by human measurement, which was also the angel's standard.
18 The wall was built of jasper, and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city was embedded with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21 The twelve gates were made of twelve pearls. Each gate was a single pearl. The street of the city was pure gold as transparent as glass.
22 Now I saw no temple there, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 The city has no need of the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God illuminates it and the Lamb is its lamp.
24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.
25 Its gates will never be closed during day (and there will be no night there).
26 They will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
27 But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is abominable or tells lies; but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
DASV: Revelation 22
1 Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life, crystal clear, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb,
2 flowing down the middle of its street. On both sides of the river was the tree of life, with twelve types of fruit, producing its fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 There will no longer be any curse and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.
4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
5 There will be no more night. They will not need any light from a lamp, nor light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. They will reign forever and ever.
6 Then he said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true, for the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angels to show to his servants the things that must soon take place.
7 Look, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
9 Then he said to me, "Don't do it. I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."
10 Then he told me, "Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near.
11 Let the evildoer continue to do evil, and the filthy continue to be filthy and the righteous continue to be righteous and the holy continue to be holy.
12 Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me, to repay to each person according to what he has done.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
15 Outside are the dogs, sorcerers, sexually immoral, murderers, idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices deception.
16 "I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star."
17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let anyone who hears say, "Come." Let anyone who is thirsty come, anyone who wants, let him take the water of life freely.
18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book.
19 If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life, and in the holy city, which are recorded in this book.
20 He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen! Come, Lord Jesus.
