Revelation

CHAPTER 14

Only 144,000 will be saved
(and they'll all be male virgins)
14:1-5

1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

I saw a lamb standing on mount Zion,

with 144,000 who had his father's name

written on their foreheads.

3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

They sang a new song,

which no one could learn,

but the 144,000 who were redeemed from the earth. [1]

4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

They were those who were not defiled with women,

because they were virgins.

Three angels fly by with dark messages
14:6-13

6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

I saw an angel fly by, saying,

7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Fear God. [2]

It's time for God's judgment.

8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

I saw another angel say,

Babylon the great has fallen,

because she made all the nations drink

the wine of her fornication.

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Another angel said with a loud voice,

Whoever worships the beast and receives

his mark on his forehead or on his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

will drink the wine of God's wrath,

and be tormented with fire and brimstone

in the presence of the lamb and angels.

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

The smoke of their torment will ascend up forever. [3]

12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

The saints obey God's commandments. [4]

Jesus and an angel kill trillions with their sickles
14:14-20

14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

I saw someone who looked like the Son of man

sitting on a white cloud,

with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.

15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

An angel came by and said,

Thrust in your sickle,

because the harvest on earth is ripe.

16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

And he thrust in his sickle on the earth.

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

Another angel with a sickle came out of the temple in heaven.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

Another angel came by and said to the one with the sharp sickle,

Thrust in your sharp sickle,

because the grapes are ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth,

and gathered the vine of the earth

into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

And blood came out of the winepress as high as the horse bridles

into a pool that was a 1600 furlongs wide. [5]
