JOHN THE DIVINE*
Revelation 20 ©
1 An angel comes down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and binds Satan there a thousand years. 4 The holy martyrs and they who did not worship the beast, sit upon thrones, and reign with Christ a thousand years. 5 But others remain in death. 6 They are all pronounced blessed who have part in the first resurrection. 7 After the end of a thousand years Satan is loosed. 8 And deceives the nations again, and stirs up Gog and Magog to the war. 9 Who compass about the beloved city, but are devoured by fire. 10 And the devil is cast into the lake of fire. 11 A white throne is seen, with One sitting thereon, before Whom heaven and earth flee away. 12 The dead both small and great appear before God, and the books are opened, and every man is judged according to his works. 14 Death and hell are cast into the like of fire, with all those who are not written in the book of life.
AND1 I saw 2an angel come down from heaven, havinga3the key of the bottomless pit and 4a great chain in his hand.
Andb he laid hold on 5the dragon,c that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and 6shut him up, and set a seal upon him, thatd he should deceive 7the nations no more, 8till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and 9after that he must be loosed 10a little season.
11And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, ande judgment was given unto them: and I saw thef souls of them that were 12beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped theg beast, neither hish image, neither had received his marki upon their foreheads, or in their hands; andj they lived and reigned with Christ 13a thousand years.
But the 14rest of the dead 15lived not again 16until the thousand years were finished. 17This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he 18that hath part in the first resurrection: on such 19the second death hath no power, but they shall be 20priestsk of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are 21expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his 22prison,
And shall 23go out to deceive 24the nations 25which are in the four quarters of the earth, 26Gogl and Magog, tom gather them together to battle: 27the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed 28the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: 29and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
And the devil that deceived them wasn cast 30into the lake of fire and brimstone, where theo beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormentedp day and night for ever and ever.
31And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose 32face the earth and the heaven 33fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, 34small and great, 35stand before God; and 36the books were opened: and another book was opened, whichq is the book 37of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, 38accordingr to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and 39death and 40hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And 41death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is 42the second death.
And whosoever was 43not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
