An Interlude

1 After this I saw four R341 angels standing at the four R342 corners of the earth, holding back the R343 four winds of the earth, so R344 that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. 2 And I saw another angel ascending from R345 the rising of the sun, having the seal R346 of the R347 living God; and he cried out with a loud voice to the four R348 angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, "Do R349 not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed R350 the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads." R351

The 144,000

4 And I heard the number R352 of those who were sealed, one R353 hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel: 5from the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad twelve thousand, 6from the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, from the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand, 7from the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, from the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, from the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand, 8from the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, from the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand were sealed.

A Multitude from the Tribulation

9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every R354 nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before R355 the throne and before R356 the Lamb, clothed in white R357 robes, and palm R358 branches were in their hands; 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying,

"Salvation R359 to our God who R360 sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." 11 And all the angels were standing around R361 the throne and around the R361 elders and the four R362 living creatures; and they fell R363 on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying,

"Amen, R364 blessing R365 and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen." R364

13 Then one of the elders answered, R366 saying to me, "These who are clothed in the white R367 robes, who are they, and where have they come from?" 14 I said F69 to him, "My lord, you know." And he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great R368 tribulation, and they have washed R369 their robes and made them white R370 in the blood R371 of the Lamb. 15 "For this reason, they are before R372 the throne of God; and they serve R373 Him day and night in His temple; R374 F70 and He R375 who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle R376 over them. 16 "They R377 will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat F71 down on them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, R378 and will guide them to springs of the water R379 F72 of life; and God R380 will wipe every tear from their eyes."
