The Revelation to Yahchanan



     

The Revelation to Yahchanan [John]

Chapter 1

1 The Revelation which Yahwah [YHWH] gave to show His servants, things which must shortly take place. He sent and signified it by His malak [messenger, angel] to His servant Yahuchanan [John],

2 who bore witness to the word of Yahwah, and to all things that he saw.

3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

4 Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne.

8 I am the Aleph [first Hebrew letter] and the Tau [last letter]: says Yahwah; who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty [Shaddai].

9 I, Yahuchanan, your brother and fellow-partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and patience, was on the island called Patmos [prison] because of the word of Yahwah.

10 I heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet,

11 saying: Write what you see in a book.

12 Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me.

Chapter 4

1 Having turned I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the voice, saying: Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place.

2 Immediately I was in the Spirit. Behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.

3 He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones. On the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes, and they had crowns of gold on their heads.

5 From the throne proceeded lightning, thundering, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of Yahwah.

6 Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.

8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: Sacred, sacred, sacred, Yahwah Almighty, who was and is and is to come!

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever,

10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

11 You are worthy, O Yahwah, to receive glory, honor, and power. For you created all things. By your will they exist, and were created.

Chapter 5

1 I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.

2 Then I saw a strong malak proclaiming with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the scroll, and to loose its seals?

3 No one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.

4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.

5 One of the elders said to me: Do not weep. Behold! The Lion which is out of the tribe of Yahudah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals. 6 I looked, and behold! In the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes.

7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

9 And they sing a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the book, and to open its seals; because you were slain, and have redeemed to Yahwah, by your blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.

10 You made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve Yahwah, and they will reign on the earth.

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many malaks around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders. The number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing!

13 Every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: Blessing, honor, glory, and power, are to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!

14 Then the four living creatures said: Amein! The twenty-four elders fell down and worshipped Him who lives forever and ever.

Chapter 6

1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals. I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder: Come and see.

2 I looked, and behold! A white horse. He who sat on it had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying: Come and see.

4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. It was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, that people should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.

5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say: Come and see. So I looked, and behold! A black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.

6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying: A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and the wine.

7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying: Come and see.

8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. The name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. Power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.

9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the Word of Yahwah, and for the testimony which they held.

10 They cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Yahwah, sacred and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?

11 Then a white robe was given to each of them, and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer.

12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold! There was a great earthquake, the sun became black as [if looking through a] sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.

14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

15 The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,

16 and said to the mountains and rocks: Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne!

17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?

Chapter 7

1 After these things I saw four malaks standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.

2 Then I saw another malak ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Yahwah. He cried with a loud voice to the four malaks to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,

3 saying: Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of Yahwah on their foreheads.

4 I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed.

5 Of the tribe of Yahudah [Judah] twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed.

6 Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed.

7 Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed.

8 Of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Yahusef [Ephrayim] twelve thousand were sealed. Of the tribe of Benyamin twelve thousand were sealed. [where is the tribe of Dan?]

9 After these things I saw, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, arrayed in white robes, and palms in their hands.

10 They cry with a great voice, saying: Salvation to our Father who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.

11 All the malaks were standing round about the throne, and about the elders and the four living creatures. They fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped Yahweh, saying:

12 Amein. Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our Father for ever and ever. Amein. 13 One of the elders answered, saying to me: These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and where did they come from?

14 I said to him: My master, you know. He said to me: These are those who come of the great tribulation, they washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 Therefore are they before the throne of Yahweh, they serve Him day and night in His temple, and He who sits on the throne spreads His tabernacle over them.

16 They will not hunger nor thirst any more. Neither will the sun strike upon them, nor any heat,

17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne is their shepherd, and guides them to fountains of waters of life. Yahweh wipes away every tear from their eyes.

Chapter 8

1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2 I saw the seven malaks who stand before Yahwah, and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 Then another malak, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before Yahwah from the malak's hand.

5 Then the malak took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. There were noises, thundering, lightning, and an earthquake.

6 So the seven malaks who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 The first malak sounded. Hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. A third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

8 Then the second malak sounded. Something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.

9 A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 Then the third malak sounded. A great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers.

11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood [poison], and many men died from the water, because they were made bitter.

12 Then the fourth malak sounded. A third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

13 I looked, and I heard a malak flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpets of the three malaks who are about to sound!

Chapter 9

1 Then the fifth malak sounded. I saw a star fall from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

2 He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.

3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

4 They were commanded to not harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Yahwah on their foreheads.

5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.

6 In those days men will seek death, and will not find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

7 The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.

8 They had hair like womens hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.

9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle.

10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months.

11 They had as king over them the malak of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon [possibly Azazel from Enoch 10:4-9].

12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.

13 Then the sixth malak sounded. I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Yahwah,

14 saying to the sixth malak who had the trumpet: Release the four malaks who are bound at the great river Euphrates.

15 So the four malaks, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million, I heard the number of them.

17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.

18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.

19 For their power is in their mouth and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, having heads, and with them they do harm.

20 But the rest of mankind (who were not killed by these plagues) did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.

21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Chapter 10

1 I saw still another mighty malak coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. A rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.

2 He had a little book open in his hand. He set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,

3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write. But I heard a voice from heaven saying to me: Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them [possibly a warning to mankind].

5 The malak whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven

6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever (who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it) that there should be delay no longer.

7 In the days of the sounding of the seventh angel (and he is about to sound) the mystery of Yahwah will be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said: Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the malak who stands on the sea and on the earth.

9 So I went to the malak and said to him: Give me the little book. He said to me: Take and eat it. It will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.

10 Then I took the little book out of the malak's hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.

11 They said to me: You must prophesy over many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.

Chapter 11

1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. The malak stood, saying: Rise, measure the temple of Yahwah, the altar, and those who worship there.

2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. They will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.

3 I will give power to my two witnesses [Enoch and Eliyah, Acts Of Pilate XXV:1], and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before Yahwah of the earth.

5 If anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner.

6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy. They have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

7 When they finish their testimony, the beast who ascended out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.

8 Their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also Yahshua was crucified.

9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.

10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from Yahwah entered them. They stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.

12 They heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them: Come up here. They ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.

13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed. The rest were afraid, and gave glory to Yahwah of heaven.

14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.

15 Then the seventh malak sounded. There were loud voices in heaven, saying: The kingdoms of this world have become [the kingdoms] of Yahwah, and He shall reign forever and ever!

16 The twenty-four elders who sat before Yahwah on their thrones fell on their faces and worshipped Yahwah,

17 saying: We give you thanks, O Yahwah Almighty (the One who is and who was and who is to come), because you have taken your great power and reigned.

18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should reward your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear your name, small and great, and should destroy those who destroy the earth.

19 Then the temple of Yahwah was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. There were lightning, noises, thundering, an earthquake, and great hail.

Chapter 12

1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

2 Then being with child, she [Yisrayah] cried out in labor, in pain to give birth [Micah 4:9-5:3].

3 Another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon [Satan] having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

4 His tail drew a third of the stars [malaks] of heaven and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 She bore a male child [Yahshua] who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to Yahwah and His throne.

7 War broke out in heaven. Michayah and his malaks fought with the dragon.

8 The dragon and his malaks fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast to the earth, and his malaks were cast out with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven: Now salvation, strength, and the kingdom of Yahwah has come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before Yahwah day and night, has been cast down.

12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has a short time.

13 Now when the dragon saw he had been cast 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 [Exodus 19:4], that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time from the presence of the serpent.

15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

17 The dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of Yahwah.

Chapter 13

1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name [Jesus].

2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard [Greece], his feet were like the feet of a bear [Persia], and his mouth like the mouth of a lion [Babylon]. The dragon [Satan] gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

3 I saw one of his heads [pope] as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. All the world marveled, and followed the beast.

4 So they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying: Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?

5 He was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.

6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against Yahwah, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. Authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.

10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity. He who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a ram, and spoke like a dragon.

12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

14 He deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.

17 No man should be able to buy or to sell, save he who has the symbol, even the name of the beast or the symbol of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him reckon the symbol of the beast. It is the symbol of a man, and his symbol is χξς [Greek, meaning: Iesous Horus Krishna. Now called: Jesus H. Christ].

Chapter 14

1 I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty and four thousand, having His Name, and the Name of His Father, written on their foreheads.

2 I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.

3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.

4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to Yahwah.

5 No lie was found in their mouths, they are blameless.

6 Then I saw another malak flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth (to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people)

7 saying with a loud voice: Fear Yahwah. Give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him who made heaven and earth and the sea.

8 Another malak followed, saying: Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

9 Then a third malak followed them, saying with a loud voice: If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,

10 he himself will also drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahwah, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His anger.

11 The smoke of their torment ascends up into all the ages. There is no rest day nor night for those who worship the wild beast or his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name.

12 Here is the patience of the saints, those who keep the commandments of Yahwah.

13 Then I heard a voice from heaven, saying: Write this, Blessed are the dead from now on who die in Yahwah! Yes, blessed, says the Spirit, [in] that they may rest from their labors, for their works do follow them.

14 Then I looked, and behold! A white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.

15 Another malak came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud: Thrust in your sickle and reap, for the time has come for you to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

17 Then another malak came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

18 Another malak came out from the altar, who had power over fire. He cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying: Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 So the malak thrust his sickle into the earth, gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahwah.

20 The winepress was trampled outside the city. Blood came out of the winepress up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

Chapter 15

1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven malaks having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of Yahwah is complete.

2 I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of Yahwah.

3 They sing the song of Moshe, the servant of Yahwah, saying: Great and marvelous are your works, Yahwah Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations!

4 Who shall not fear you, O Yahwah, and glorify your name? For you alone are sacred. All nations shall come and worship before you, for your judgments have been manifested.

5 After these things I looked, and behold! The temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.

6 Out of the temple came the seven malaks having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.

7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven malaks seven golden bowls full of the wrath of Yahwah who lives forever and ever.

8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of Yahwah and from His power. No one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven malaks were completed.

Chapter 16

1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels: Go, pour out the bowls of the wrath of Yahwah on the earth.

2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth. A foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast, and those who worshipped his image.

3 Then the second malak poured out his bowl on the sea. It became blood as of a dead man, and every living creature in the sea died.

4 Then the third malak poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

5 I heard the malak of the waters saying: You are righteous, O Yahwah, The One who is and who was and who is to be, because you have judged these things.

6 For they shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you gave them blood to drink. For it is their just due.

7 I heard another from the altar saying: Even so, Yahwah Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

8 Then the fourth malak poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.

9 Men were scorched with great heat. They blasphemed the name of Yahwah who has power over these plagues, yet they did not repent, and give Him glory.

10 Then the fifth malak poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. His kingdom became full of darkness, and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain.

11 They blasphemed Yahwah of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.

12 Then the sixth malak poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.

13 I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon.

14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of Yahwah Almighty.

16 They gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew: HarMagedon [Armeggedon].

17 Then the seventh malak poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying: It is done!

18 There were noises, thundering, and lightning. There was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.

19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Great Babylon [Rome] was remembered before Yahwah, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 A great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent [94 pounds]. Men blasphemed Yahwah because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.

Chapter 17

1 Then one of the seven malaks who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me: Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,

2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, and the filthiness of her fornication.

5 On her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints. When I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

7 But the malak said to me: Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her (which has the seven heads and the ten horns).

8 The beast that you saw was, is not, is about to come up out of the abyss, and to go into perdition [Azazel]. Those who dwell on the earth will wonder (those whose name was not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world) when they behold the beast, how he was, and is not, and will come [Enoch 10:4-9].

9 Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.

10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. When he comes, he must continue a short time.

11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven. He goes into perdition.

12 The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.

13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

15 Then he said to me: The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.

16 The ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For Yahwah has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of Yahwah are fulfilled.

18 The woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.

Chapter 18

1 After these things I saw another malak coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.

2 He cried mightily with a loud voice, saying: Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!

3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.

4 I heard another voice from heaven saying: Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and Yahwah has remembered her iniquities.

6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works. In the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.

7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow. For she says in her heart: I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.

8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day, death, mourning, and famine. She will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is Yahwah who judges her.

9 The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,

10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying: Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.

11 The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore

12 (merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble,

13 cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men).

14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

16 and saying: Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!

17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing. Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance,

18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying: What is like this great city?

19 They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying: Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.

20 Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy ones and prophets, for Yahwah has avenged you on her!

21 Then a mighty malak took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying: Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.

22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore.

23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore. The voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth. For by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.

24 In her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.

Chapter 19

1 After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying: Alleluyah! Salvation, glory, honor, and power belong to Yahwah.

2 For true and righteous are His judgments, because He judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication. He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her.

3 Again they said: Alleluyah! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!

4 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped Yahwah who sat on the throne, saying: Amein! Alleluyah!

5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying: Praise Yahwah, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!

6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters, like the sound of mighty thundering, saying: Alleluyah! For Yahwah Almighty reigns!

7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.

8 To her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

9 Then he said to me: Write; Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! And he said to me: These are the true sayings of Yahwah.

11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold! A white horse, and He [Yahshua] who sat on him in righteousness. He judges and makes war.

12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

14 The armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.

15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahwah.

16 On His garment and on His thigh He has a title inscribed: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

17 Then I saw a malak standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven: Come, gather together for the supper of the great Yahwah.

18 You may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses, of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.

19 I saw the beast, the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse, and against His army.

20 Then the beast was captured, and cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21 The rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse [2Ezra 13:9-11]. All the birds were filled with their flesh.

Chapter 20

1 Then I saw a malak coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand.

2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan.

3 He cast him into the bottomless pit, shut him up, and set a seal on him so that he should not deceive the nations.

4 I saw thrones, and those who sat upon them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for the testimony of Yahushua, and for the Word of Yahweh, and such as did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive the symbol upon their forehead and upon their hand. They lived, and reigned with Messiyah a thousand years.

5 The rest of the dead did not live until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection.

6 Blessed and set-apart is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power. They will be priests of Yahweh and of Messiyah, and will reign with him a thousand years.

7 When the thousand years are finished, Satan will be loosed out of his prison,

8 and will come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war (the number of whom is as the sand of the sea).

9 They went up over the breadth of the earth, compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city. Fire came down out of heaven, and devoured them.

10 The devil who deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet, and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them.

12 I saw the dead, small and great, standing before Yahwah. Books were opened. Another book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life. The dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

15 If any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire [gehenna].

Chapter 21

1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.

2 Then I, Yahchanan, saw the holy city, New Yahrusalem [Yahwah is peace], coming down out of heaven from Yahwah, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 I heard a loud voice from heaven saying: Behold! The tabernacle of Yahwah is with men. He will dwell with them, and they will be His people. Yahwah Himself will be with them, and be their Father.

4 Yahwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.

5 Then He who sat on the throne said: Behold, I make all things new. He said to me: Write, for these words are true and faithful.

6 He said to me: It is done! I am the Aleph and the Tau, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

7 He who overcomes will inherit all things. I will be his Father, and he will be My son.

8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers [drug addicts], idolaters, and all liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

9 Then one of the seven malaks who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying: Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.

10 He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Yahusalem, descending out of heaven from Yahwah, having the glory of Yahwah.

11 Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

12 It has a great and high wall, having twelve gates. At the gates twelve malaks, and names inscribed, which are those of the twelve tribes of [the] sons of Yisrayah.

13 Three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.

14 The wall of the city had twelve foundation [stones], and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 He who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.

16 The city is laid out as a square, its length is as great as its breadth. He measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.

17 Then he measured its wall, one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man (that is, of a malak).

18 The construction of its wall was of jasper, and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,

20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.

21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each individual gate was of one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

22 But I saw no temple in it, for Yahwah Almighty is its temple.

23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of Yahwah illuminated it.

24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.

25 Its gates will not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there).

26 They will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.

Chapter 22

1 He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of Yahwah.

2 On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

3 There shall be no more curse, but the throne of Yahwah will be in it, and His servants will serve Him.

4 They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.

5 There will be no night there. They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for Yahwah gives them light. And they will reign forever and ever.

6 Then he said to me: These words are faithful and true. Yahwah of the holy prophets sent His malak to show His servant the things which must shortly take place.

8 Now I, Yahuchanan, saw and heard these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the malak who showed me these things.

9 Then he said to me: See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship Yahwah!

10 He said to me: Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.

11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still. He who is sacred, let him be sacred still.

12 Behold! I am coming quickly. My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

13 I am the Aleph and the Tau, the Beginning and the End.

14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

15 But outside are dogs, sorcerers, sexually immoral, murderers, idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

17 The Spirit and the bride say: Come! And let him who hears say: Come! And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book. If anyone adds to these things, Yahwah will add to him the plagues that are written in this book.

19 If anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, Yahwah will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
