I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil,
and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till
the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of
them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither
his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a
5But the rest of the dead
lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no
power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of
8And shall go out to deceive the
nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom
is as the sand of the sea.
9And they went
up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from
God out of heaven, and devoured them.
the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and
shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found
no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, small
and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead
were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were
in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into
the lake of fire.
