11 And there was given unto me a reed like unto a staff, saying—Rise and measure the Sanctuary of God, and the altar, and them who are doing homage therein;
2 and the court that is outside the Sanctuary cast thou outside and do not measure it, because it hath been given unto the nations, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give unto my two witnesses, that they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, arrayed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive-trees and the two lamps which before the Lord of the earth do stand.
5 And if any one upon them chooseth to inflict injury fire cometh forth out of their mouth and devoureth their enemies; and if anyone shall choose upon them to inflict injury thus must he be slain.
6 These have authority to shut heaven, in order that no rain be moistening in the days of their prophesying; and authority have they over the waters, to be turning them into blood, and to smite the land with any manner of plague as often as they will.
7 And as soon as they have completed their witnessing the wild-beast that is to come up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and slay them.
8 And their dead bodies [lie] upon the broadway of the great city, the which is called spiritually Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord also was crucified.
9 And [some] of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their dead bodies three days and a half, and their dead bodies do they not suffer to be put into a tomb.
10 And they who are dwelling upon the earth rejoice over them and make merry, and gifts will they send one to another,—because these two prophets tormented them that were dwelling upon the earth.
11 And after [the] three days and a half a spirit of life from God entered within them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them who were beholding them.
12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven, saying unto them—Come up hither! And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them.
13 And in that hour there came to be a great earthquake; and the tenth of the city fell, and there were slain in the earthquake names of men—seven thousand. And the rest became greatly afraid, and gave glory unto the God of heaven.
14 The second Woe hath passed away,—lo! the third Woe cometh speedily.
15 And the seventh messenger sounded; and there came to be loud voices in heaven, saying—The kingdom of the world hath become [the kingdom] of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign unto the ages of ages.
16 And the twenty-four elders who before God do sit upon their thrones fell down upon their faces, and rendered homage unto God,
17 saying—We give thanks unto thee, O Lord God, the Almighty, Who is and Who was; because thou hast taken thy great power, and hast become king.
18 And the nations were angered; and thine anger came, and the fit time of the dead to be vindicated, and to give their reward unto thy servants the prophets and unto the saints and unto them who revere thy name—the small and the great, and to despoil them who were despoiling the earth.
19 And the sanctuary of God which is in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant in his sanctuary appeared, and there came to be lightnings and voices and thunderings and an earthquake and great hail.
