DASV: Revelation 9
1 Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to the earth and it was given the key to the bottomless pit.
2 It opened the bottomless pit and smoke rose out of the pit, like the smoke from a great furnace. The sun and air were darkened by the smoke from the pit.
3 Then out of the smoke came locusts onto the earth; and they were given power like scorpions of the earth.
4 They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, anything green, or any tree, but only the people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 They were permitted to torture them for five months but not to kill them, and their torture was like the pain of a scorpion when it stings someone.
6 In those days people will seek death, but will be unable to find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.
7 The appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were what looked like gold crowns, and their faces were like human faces.
8 They had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9 They had breastplates like iron breastplates; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots drawn by horses rushing into battle.
10 They had tails and stingers like scorpions, and in their tails was their power to harm people for five months.
11 The king over them was the angel of the Abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon [meaning, the Destroyer].
12 The first woe has past. Look there are still two more woes to come.
13 The sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar that is before God.
14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates."
15 So the four angels were released, who prepared for this hour, day, month, and year, so that they could kill a third of humankind.
16 I heard the number of troops mounted on horseback was 200 million.
17 Now this is what the horses I saw in the vision looked like. The riders wore breastplates that were fiery red, hyacinth blue and sulfur yellow. The horses' heads looked like lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and sulfur.
18 By these three plagues a third of humankind was killed--by the fire, smoke, and sulfur that came out of their mouths.
19 For the power of the horses was in their mouth and tails. Their tails are like snakes that have heads by which they inflict damage.
20 The rest of humankind, who were not killed with these plagues, refused to repent of the works of their hands or to give up worshipping demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood; which cannot see, hear, or walk.
DASV: Revelation 10
1 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down out of heaven, wrapped with a cloud; and a rainbow was over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.
2 He had a little scroll open in his hand. He set his right foot on the sea and his left on the land.
3 Then he shouted out with a loud voice, like a lion roaring. When he shouted out, the seven thunders rang out their sound.
4 When the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven say, "Seal up the things that the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them down."
5 Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven,
6 and swore by the one who lives forever and ever, who created the heaven and what is in it, and the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it, saying, "There will be no further delay.
7 But in the days when the seventh angel is about to blow his trumpet, then the mystery of God will be completed, just as he declared to his servants the prophets."
8 Then the voice I heard from heaven, spoke again to me, saying, "Go, take the open scroll that is in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."
9 So I went to the angel, and asked him to give me the little scroll. He told me, "Take and eat it. It will make your stomach bitter, but it will be sweet as honey in your mouth."
10 So I took the little scroll out of the angel's hand and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.
11 Then they said to me, "You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings."
DASV: Revelation 11
1 Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff and I was told, "Get up and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship in it.
2 But do not measure the outer courtyard of the temple, for it has been given to the nations, and they will trample on the holy city for forty-two months.
3 I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth."
4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the Lord of the earth.
5 If anyone tries to hurt them, fire comes out of their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone tries to hurt them this is how they will die.
6 These two have the power to shut heaven, so that it does not rain during the days of their prophecy. They have power over the waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with every kind of plague, as often as they wish.
7 When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, conquer and kill them.
8 Their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which symbolically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
9 For three and a half days those from various peoples, tribes, languages and nations will stare at their dead bodies refusing to bury them.
10 The inhabitants of the earth will rejoice over them, and celebrate and send gifts to each other, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
11 But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet. Those who saw it were terrified.
12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven telling them, "Come up here." So they went up into heaven in the cloud while their enemies watched them.
13 At that very hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past. Look, the third woe is coming quickly.
15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ,
and he will reign forever and ever."
16 Then the twenty-four elders, who sit before God on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshipped God,
and the time for the dead to be judged has arrived,
as well as the time to reward your servants
the prophets and the saints,
and those who fear your name,
both the small and the great
and to destroy those who destroy the earth."
19 Then the temple of God that is in heaven was opened; and the ark of the covenant was seen in his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, rumblings and crashes of thunder, and an earthquake, along with a great hailstorm.
DASV: Revelation 12
1 Now a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
2 She was pregnant and cried out in labor pains in the anguish of giving birth.
3 Another sign appeared in heaven: a great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.
4 His tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that as soon as she delivered he might devour her child.
5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
7 Now there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back.
8 But the dragon was not strong enough to win, and there was no longer found any place in heaven for them.
9 So the great dragon was thrown down, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one deceiving the whole world. He was thrown down to the earth and his angels were thrown down with him.
"Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Christ have come,
for the accuser of our brothers is thrown down,
the one who accused them before our God day and night.
11 They conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb,
and because of the word of their testimony;
and they did not love their own lives even at the point of death.
12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you that inhabit them.
But woe to the earth and sea,
because the devil is come down to you.
He is furious because he knows that his time is short."
13 When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly away into the wilderness to a place prepared for her. There she would be taken care of for a time, times, and half a time, away from the face of the serpent.
15 So the serpent spewed out of his mouth water like a river after the woman, attempting to sweep her away with a flood.
16 But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.
17 Then the dragon became furious with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus.
DASV: Revelation 13
1 Then the dragon stood on the sand of the sea. I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads and on his horns were ten diadems, and on its heads were blasphemous names.
2 The beast that I saw was like a leopard, and its feet were like a bear's, and its mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave it his power and his throne and great authority.
3 One of its heads seemed to have a fatal wound and its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast.
4 They worshipped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast and they also worshipped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast?" And "Who is able to wage war against it?"
5 Now the beast was given a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies. It was granted authority for forty-two months.
6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, to blaspheme his name, his dwelling which is those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was also permitted to make war against the saints and to conquer them. It was given authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation.
8 All who live on the earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the Book of Life of the Lamb who was slain.
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast in its presence. It made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.
13 It performed great signs, even making fire come down out of heaven on the earth in the sight of humankind.
14 It deceived those who live on the earth by the signs that it was given to perform on behalf of the beast; telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had been wounded by the sword and lived.
15 It was empowered to give breath to this image of the first beast, so that the image of the first beast could speak, and cause anyone who would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
16 It also forced all, both great and small, rich and poor, bond and free, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead.
17 This was so that no one would be able to buy or sell, unless he had the mark of the beast, that is his name or number.
18 This calls for wisdom. Let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man. Its number is 666.
DASV: Revelation 14
1 Then I looked, and there was the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 having his name and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads.
2 I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The sound I heard was like many harpists playing their harps.
3 They were singing a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been purchased from the earth.
4 These are the ones who had not defiled themselves with women; for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were purchased from among humankind to be the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
5 No lie was found in their mouths. They are blameless.
6 Then I saw another angel flying overhead, having the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth, and to every nation, tribe, language and people.
7 He called out with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give him glory; for the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters."
8 Then a second angel followed, saying, "Fallen, Babylon the great is fallen. She made all the nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality."
9 Then a third angel, followed them, calling out with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead, or on his hand,
10 he will also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured full strength into the cup of his anger. He will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
11 The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. Those who worship the beast and his image and whoever receives the mark of his name will have no rest day and night."
12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13 Then I heard the voice from heaven saying, "Write this: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them."
14 Then I looked, and there was a white cloud, and on the cloud I saw one sitting like the Son of Man, having on his head a golden crown, and a sharp sickle in his hand.
15 Another angel came out from the temple, calling with a loud voice to the one who sat on the cloud, "Swing your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe."
16 So the one who sat on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth and the earth was reaped.
17 Then another angel came out from the temple in heaven; he also had a sharp sickle.
18 Another angel who was in charge of the fire came from the altar, and called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, "Swing your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine from the earth; for its grapes are fully ripe."
19 So the angel swung his sickle over the earth, and gathered the grapes from the earth, and threw them into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 Then the winepress was stomped outside the city. Blood flowed out of the winepress, as high as the horses bridles and as far as 180 miles.
DASV: Revelation 15
1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and astonishing: seven angels having seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished.
2 I saw something likes a glass sea mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and the number of his name, standing by the glass sea, holding harps given to them by God.
3 They sang the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and awesome are your works, O Lord God Almighty,
righteous and true are your ways, King of the ages.
4 Who will not fear you, O Lord, and glorify your name?
for you alone are holy;
for all the nations will come and worship before you;
for your righteous acts have been revealed."
5 After these things I looked, and the temple in heaven, that is, the tabernacle of the testimony, was opened.
6 The seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in clean bright linen with gold sashes wrapped around their chests.
7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever.
8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory and power of God; and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
DASV: Revelation 16
1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, telling the seven angels, "Go, and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the earth."
2 The first went and poured out his bowl on the earth. It became a terrible and painful sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshipped his image.
3 The second poured out his bowl on the sea. It became blood like that of a corpse and everything living in the sea died.
4 The third poured out his bowl on the rivers and the springs of the waters and they became blood.
5 Then I heard the angel of the waters saying,
"You are just, O Holy One,
you who are and was,
because you have made these judgments.
6 Because they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets,
and you have given them blood to drink,
they got what they deserved."
7 Then I heard the altar reply,
"Yes, Lord God Almighty,
true and just are your judgments."
8 Then the fourth poured out his bowl on the sun. It was given the ability to scorch people with fire.
9 So people were scorched with fierce heat and they blasphemed the name of God who had authority over these plagues, but they did not repent and give him glory.
10 Then the fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. His kingdom was darkened and they gnawed their tongues in pain.
11 They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; but they did not repent of their deeds.
12 The sixth poured out his bowl on the great Euphrates River. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the east.
13 Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, who go out to the kings of the whole world to gather them together for the battle of the great day of God, the Almighty.
15 (Look, I will come like a thief. Blessed is the one who expectantly watches and keeps his clothes ready, so he does not have to walk around naked and expose his shame.)
16 So they gathered the kings together to the place which is called in Hebrew Armageddon.
17 Then the seventh poured out his bowl on the air. A loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, "It is done."
18 There were flashes of lightning, rumblings and thundering, and a great earthquake, such as has not been since there were humans on the earth, so great was this mighty earthquake.
19 The great city was split into three sections and the cities of the nations fell. Then God remembered Babylon the great giving her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.
20 Every island fled away and the mountains were nowhere to be found.
21 Huge hail, with each one weighing about 100 pounds, fell from the sky on humans. But the people blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for the plague was so disastrous.
DASV: Revelation 17
1 Then one of the seven angels that had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who sits on many waters,
2 with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and those who live on the earth were made drunk by the wine of her immorality."
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy and having seven heads and ten horns.
4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, decked with gold, precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and unclean things of her immorality.
5 A mysterious name was written on her forehead: "Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes and the abominations of the earth."
6 Then I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I was absolutely amazed.
7 So the angel said to me, "Why are you so amazed? I will tell you about the mystery of the woman, and about the beast with the seven heads and the ten horns that carry her.
8The beast you saw was, and is not; but is about to come up out of the bottomless pit and go to destruction. Those who live on the earth whose names have not been written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world will be amazed when they see the beast, how it was, and is not, but will come again.
9 This calls for a mind that has wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
10 They are also seven kings--five have fallen, the one is, the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain just a little while.
11 Now the beast that was and is not, is itself also an eighth king. It belongs with the seven and it too is going to destruction.
12 The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom. But they will receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.
13 These have a single purpose, that they might give their power and authority to the beast.
14 These will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and those who are with him are called and chosen and faithful."
15 Then he said to me, "The waters that you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.
16 The ten horns you saw and the beast hate the prostitute. They will lay her waste and strip her naked. They will eat her flesh and burn her up with fire.
17 For God has put into their hearts to do his plan, by deciding together to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are accomplished.
18 The woman whom you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth."
