Revelation 14 New American Standard Bible

The Song of the 144,000

14 Then I looked , and behold , the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion , and with Him one hundred and forty-four e thousand , having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads . 2  And I heard a voice from heaven , like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder , and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps . 3  And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders ; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four e thousand who had been purchased from the earth . 4  These are the ones who have not been defiled with women , for they have kept themselves chaste . These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever e He goes . These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb . 5  And no lie was found in their mouth ; they are blameless .

The Messages of the Three Angels

6  And I saw another angel flying in midheaven , having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth , and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people ; 7  and he said with a loud voice , " Fear God , and give Him glory , because the hour of His judgment has come ; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters." 8  And another angel , a second one , followed , saying , " Fallen , fallen is Babylon the great , she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality ." 9  Then another angel , a third one , followed them, saying 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 also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God , which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger ; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb . 11  "And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever ; they have no rest day and night , those who worship the beast and his image , and whoever e receives the mark of his name ." 12  Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus .

13  And I heard a voice from heaven , saying , "Write , ' 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 with them."

The Harvest of the Earth

14  Then I looked , and behold , a white cloud , and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man , having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand . 15  And another angel came out of the temple , crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud , " Put in your sickle and reap , for the hour to reap has come , because the harvest of the earth is ripe ." 16  Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth , and the earth was reaped . 17  And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven , and he also had a sharp sickle . 18  Then another angel , the one who has power over fire , came out from the altar ; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle , saying , " Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth , because her grapes are ripe ." 19  So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth , and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God . 20  And the wine press was trodden outside the city , and blood came out from the wine press , up to the horses' bridles , for a distance of two hundred miles .
