Revelation 7

1 After this I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, seizing the four winds of the earth, in order that a wind might not blow upon the earth nor upon the sea nor upon every tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending away from the sunrise, having a seal of the living God, and cried out with a great voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea,

3 saying: Do might not harm the earth nor the sea nor the trees, until we might seal the bondservants of our God upon their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of the ones sealed, a hundred forty-four thousand sealed out from every tribe of the sons of Israel:

5 Out from the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand sealed, out from the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand,

6 out from the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Manasseh, twelve thousand,

7 out from the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand,

8 out from the tribe of Zebulun, twelve thousand, out from the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand, out from the tribe Benjamin, twelve thousand sealed.

9 After these things I saw, and behold, a numerous crowd which no one was able to number it, out from every nation and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, wrapped in white robes and palms in their hands.

10 And they cry out with a great voice saying: Salvation to our God, the One sitting upon the throne, and to the Lamb.

11 And all the angels had stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell before the throne upon their faces and worshiped God,

12 saying: Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and force to our God, into the ages of the ages. Amen.

13 And one out from the elders answered, saying to me: These, the ones wrapped in the white robes, who are they and from where did they come?

14 And I have said to him: My lord, you yourself know. And he said to me: These are the ones coming out from the great oppression, and they washed their robes and whitened them in the blood of the Lamb.

15 On account of this they are before the throne of God and they serve Him day and night in His temple, and the One sitting upon the throne will tabernacle upon them.

16 They will not hunger still, nor thirst, nor might the sun nor any heat fall upon them.

17 Because the Lamb, the One above in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and will lead them upon springs of water of life, and God will wipe every tear out from their eyes.
