1 And I saw an angel descending from heaven, who had the key of the abyss, and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
3 and he cast him into the abyss, and shut him down, and set a seal upon him, that he might not deceive the nations any more, till the thousand years were accomplished; and then he must be loosed again for a little time.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them-even the souls of them who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast, nor his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads, and upon their hands; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years:
5 but the rest of the dead revived not till the thousand years were accomplished: this is the first resurrection.
6 Happy and holy is he who has a part in the first resurrection! on such, the second death shall have no power; but they shall be the priests of God, and of Christ: and they shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years shall be accomplished, Satan shall be loosed from his confinement;
8 and he shall go forth to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth. Gog and Magog, to gather them together for war; whose number is like the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil, who had deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were: and they shall be tormented day and night for ages and ages.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face earth and heaven fled away, and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing 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 the things written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and hades gave up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every one according to his works.
14 And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire: this is the second death.
15 And if any one was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
