11:1 And there was given me a reed like a rod: and the angel
stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the
altar, and them that worship in it.
11:2 But the court which is without the temple, leave out, and
measure it not; for it is given to the Gentiles: and the holy
city shall they tread under foot forty [and] two months.
11:3 And I will give [power] to my two witnesses, and they shall
prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] sixty days, clothed in
11:4 These are the two olive-trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their
mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt
them, he must in this manner be killed.
11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the
days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them
to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as
11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the
beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war
against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
11:8 And their dead bodies [shall lie] in the street of the
great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where
also our Lord was crucified.
11:9 And they of the people, and kindreds, and languages, and
nations, shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and
shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over
them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another;
because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the
11:11 And after three days and a half the Spirit of life from
God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and
great fear fell upon them who saw them.
11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying to them,
Come up hither. And they ascended to heaven in a cloud; and
their enemies beheld them.
11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the
tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were killed
of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and
gave glory to the God of heaven.
11:14 The second woe is past; [and] behold, the third woe cometh
11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices
in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the
kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he will reign for
ever and ever.
11:16 And the four and twenty elders, who sat before God on
their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God,
11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who art,
and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy
