1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God-The Father: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God-The Father in their foreheads.
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God].
5Of the tribe of Y’hudah [praised] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Re’uven [Behold a Son] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] [were] sealed twelve thousand.
6Of the tribe of Asher [Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous)] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Naftali [wrestling] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of M’nasheh [forgetting] [were] sealed twelve thousand.
7Of the tribe of Shim’on [he who hears] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Yissakhar [There Is Recompense, reward] [were] sealed twelve thousand.
8Of the tribe of Zvulun [a habitation] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Yosef [God will add] [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength] [were] sealed twelve thousand.
9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues (foreign languages), stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God-The Father which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and [about] the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God-The Father,
12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, [be] unto our God-The Father forever and ever. Amen.
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and from what place came they?
14And I said unto him, Sir, youi know. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15Therefore are they before the throne of God-The Father, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them.
16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God-The Father shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
