1 And was given to me a reed like to a rod, saying: Rise thou, and measure thou the temple of the God, and the altar, and those worshipping in it;
2 and the court that outside of the temple do thou cast out and not her thou mayest measure, because it was given to the nations; and the city the holy shall they tread months forty two.
3 And I will give to the two witnesses of me, and they shall prophesy days a thousand two hundred sixty, having been clothed with sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands those in presence of the Lord of the earth standing.
5 And if any one them wills to injure, fire proceeds out of the mouth of them, and eats up the enemies of them; and if any one them wills to injure, thus it behooves him to be killed.
6 These have the heaven authority to shut, so that not rain it may rain the days of the prophesy of them; and authority they have over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth, as often as if they should will, with every plague.
7 And when they may finish the testimony of themselves, the wildbeast that rising up out of the deep will make with them war, and will conquer them, and will kill them.
8 And the dead body of them into the street city of the great, which is called spiritually Sodom and Egypt, where also the Lord of them was crucified.
9 And they took of the peoples and of the tribes and of tongues and of nations the dead body of them days three and a half, and the dead bodies of them not will suffer, to be put into a tomb.
10 And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them, and will be glad, and gifts will send to each other, because these the two prophets tormented those dwelling on the earth.
11 And after the three days and a half, breath of life from the God entered in them; and they stood on the feet of themselves, and fear great fell on those beholding them.
12 And they heard a voice great from the heaven, saying to them: Come up hither. And they went up to the heaven in the cloud; and beheld them the enemies of themselves.
13 And in that the hour was an earthquake great, and the tenth of the city fell, and were killed in the earthquake names of men thousands seven; and the remaining ones afraid became, and they gave glory to the God of the heaven.
14 The woe the second passed away; lo, the woe the third comes speedily.
15 And the seventh messenger sounded, and were voices great in the heaven, saying: Became the kingdom of the world, of the Lord of us and of the Anointed of him, and he will reign for the age of the ages.
16 And the twentyfour elders those in presence of the God sitting on the thrones of themselves, fell on the faces of themselves, and worshipped the God,
17 saying: We give thanks to thee, O Lord the God the almighty, the one existing and who was, because thou hast taken the power of thee the great, and reigned.
18 And the nations were angry, and came the wrath of thee, and the season of the dead ones, to be judged and to give the reward to the bondservants of thee the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing the name of thee the small ones and the great ones, and to destroy those destroying the earth.
19 And was opened the temple of the God in the heaven, and was seen the ark of the covenant of the Lord in the temple of him; and were lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and hail great.
