1Then I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds so they did not blow on the earth or the sea, or even on any tree.1After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back its four winds so that no wind would blow on land or sea or on any tree.
2And I saw another angel coming up from the east, carrying the seal of the living God. And he shouted to those four angels, who had been given power to harm land and sea,2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, with the seal of the living God. And he called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
3“Wait! Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have placed the seal of God on the foreheads of his servants.”3“Do not harm the land or sea or trees until we have sealed the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
4And I heard how many were marked with the seal of God—144,000 were sealed from all the tribes of Israel:4And I heard the number of those who were sealed, 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel:
5from Judah 12,000 from Reuben 12,000 from Gad 12,0005From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
6from Asher 12,000 from Naphtali 12,000 from Manasseh 12,0006from the tribe of Asher 12,000, from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000, from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
7from Simeon 12,000 from Levi 12,000 from Issachar 12,0007from the tribe of Simeon 12,000, from the tribe of Levi 12,000, from the tribe of Isaachar 12,000,
8from Zebulun 12,000 from Joseph 12,000 from Benjamin 12,000 Praise from the Great Crowd8from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000, from the tribe of Joseph 12,000, and from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.
9After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands.9After this I looked and saw a multitude too large to count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
10And they were shouting with a great roar, “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!”10And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
11And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living beings. And they fell before the throne with their faces to the ground and worshiped God.11And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. And they fell facedown before the throne and worshiped God,
12They sang, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.”12saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13Then one of the twenty-four elders asked me, “Who are these who are clothed in white? Where did they come from?”13Then one of the elders addressed me: “These in white robes,” he asked, “who are they, and where have they come from?”
14And I said to him, “Sir, you are the one who knows.” Then he said to me, “These are the ones who died in the great tribulation. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and made them white.14“Sir,” I answered, “you know.” So he replied, “These are the ones who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15“That is why they stand in front of God’s throne and serve him day and night in his Temple. And he who sits on the throne will give them shelter.15For this reason, ’They are before the throne of God and serve Him day and night in His temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them.
16They will never again be hungry or thirsty; they will never be scorched by the heat of the sun.16Never again will they hunger, and never will they thirst; nor will the sun beat down upon them, nor any scorching heat.
17For the Lamb on the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”17For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”
