1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan [the adversary], and bound him a thousand years,
3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Yeshua [God is Salvation], and for the word of God-The Father, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] Mark [a defense] upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Moshiach [Messiah] a thousand years.
5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This [is] the first resurrection [see Rev 20.4].
6Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) and holy [is] he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God-The Father and of Moshiach [Messiah], and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan [the adversary] shall be loosed out of his prison,
8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog [mountain] and Magog [land of God], to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea.
9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God-The Father out of heaven, and devoured them.
10And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet [were cast], and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God-The Father; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
