|<< Revelation 7 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And after this, I saw four Angels standing over the four corners of The Earth and holding the four winds, that the winds would not blow on The Earth, neither on the Sea, neither on any tree.
And I saw another Angel ascending from the dawning of the Sun and having the seal of THE LIVING GOD, and he cried with a loud voice to the four Angels to whom it was given to harm The Earth and the Sea,
And he said, “Do not harm the land, neither the Sea, nor the trees, until we seal the Servants of God on their foreheads.”
4And I heard the number who were sealed - 144,000, from all the tribes of Israel:
5From the tribe of Yehudah, 12,000; from the tribe of Reuben, 12,000; from the tribe of Gad, 12,000;
6From the tribe of Asher, 12,000; from the tribe of Naphtali, 12,000; from the tribe of Menashe, 12,000;
7From the tribe of Shimeon, 12,000; from the tribe of Issachar, 12,000; from the tribe of Levi, 12,000;
8From the tribe of Zebulon, 12,000; from the tribe of Joseph, 12,000; from the tribe of Benjamin, 12,000 sealed.
9After this I saw many multitudes which were impossible to count, which were of all people, generations, nations and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, and wearing white garments and with palms in their hands.
10And they shouted with a great voice, and they were saying, “Salvation to our God, and to him Who sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb!”
11And all of the Angels were standing around the throne and The Elders and The Four Beasts, and they fell before the throne on their faces,
12Saying, “Amen! Glory and blessing and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength to our God for the eternity of eternities! Amen!
13And one of The Elders responded and he said to me, “Who are these wearing white garments and from where have they come?”
14And I said to him, “My Lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are those who came from great suffering and they have purified their garments and whitened them in the blood of The Lamb.”
15“Because of this, they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in the Temple and he who sits on the throne will dwell with them.”
16“They will not hunger, neither will they thirst, and the Sun will not assail them, neither any heat.”
17Because The Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and will lead them unto Life and beside fountains of water, and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
