Day 81

 

John 13

 

13:1 Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his time had come that he would depart from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

 

13:2 After supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him,

 

13:3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came forth from God, and was going to God,

 

13:4 arose from supper, and laid aside his outer garments. He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist.

 

13:5 Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

 

13:6 Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?"

 

13:7 Jesus answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later."

 

13:8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I don't wash you, you have no part with me."

 

13:9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"

 

13:10 Jesus said to him, "Someone who has bathed only needs to have his feet washed, but is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you."

 

13:11 For he knew him who would betray him, therefore he said, "You are not all clean."

 

13:12 So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and sat down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?

 

13:13 You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord.' You say so correctly, for so I am.

 

13:14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.

 

13:15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

 

13:16 Most certainly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his lord, neither one who is sent greater than he who sent him.

 

13:17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

 

13:18 I don't speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen. But that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.'

 

13:19 From now on, I tell you before it happens, that when it happens, you may believe that I am he.

 

13:20 Most certainly I tell you, he who receives whomever I send, receives me; and he who receives me, receives him who sent me."

 

13:21 When Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, "Most certainly I tell you that one of you will betray me."

 

13:22 The disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom he spoke.

 

13:23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was at the table, leaning against Jesus' breast.

 

13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, and said to him, "Tell us who it is of whom he speaks."

 

13:25 He, leaning back, as he was, on Jesus' breast, asked him, "Lord, who is it?"

 

13:26 Jesus therefore answered, "It is he to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it." So when he had dipped the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

 

13:27 After the piece of bread, then Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."

 

13:28 Now no man at the table knew why he said this to him.

 

13:29 For some thought, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus said to him, "Buy what things we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor.

 

13:30 Therefore, having received that morsel, he went out immediately. It was night.

 

13:31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.

 

13:32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him immediately.

 

13:33 Little children, I will be with you a little while longer. You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I am going, you can't come,' so now I tell you.

 

13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another.

 

13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

 

13:36 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus answered, "Where I am going, you can't follow now, but you will follow afterwards."

 

13:37 Peter said to him, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."

 

13:38 Jesus answered him, "Will you lay down your life for me? Most certainly I tell you, the rooster won't crow until you have denied me three times.

 

Revelation 5

 

5:1 I saw, in the right hand of him who sat on the throne, a book written inside and outside, sealed shut with seven seals.

 

5:2 I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?"

 

5:3 No one in heaven above, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look in it.

 

5:4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look in it.

 

5:5 One of the elders said to me, "Don't weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome; he who opens the book and its seven seals."

 

5:6 I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.

 

5:7 Then he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne.

 

5:8 Now when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

 

5:9 They sang a new song, saying, "You are worthy to take the book, and to open its seals: for you were killed, and bought us for God with your blood, out of every tribe, language, people, and nation,

 

5:10 and made us kings and priests to our God, and we will reign on earth."

 

5:11 I saw, and I heard something like a voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands;

 

5:12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who has been killed to receive the power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing!"

 

5:13 I heard every created thing which is in heaven, on the earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them, saying, "To him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb be the blessing, the honor, the glory, and the dominion, forever and ever! Amen!

 

5:14 The four living creatures said, "Amen!" The elders fell down and worshiped.

 

Revelation 6

 

6:1 I saw that the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come and see!"

 

6:2 And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.

 

6:3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come!"

 

6:4 Another came forth, a red horse. To him who sat on it was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.

 

6:5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come and see!" And behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand.

 

6:6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart  of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius! Don't damage the oil and the wine!"

 

6:7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see!"

 

6:8 And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death.  Hell followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.

 

6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the Word of God, and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had.

 

6:10 They cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, Master, the holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"

 

6:11 A long white robe was given to each of them. They were told that they should rest yet for a while, until their fellow servants and their brothers,  who would also be killed even as they were, should complete their course.

 

6:12 I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood.

 

6:13 The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind.

 

6:14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

 

6:15 The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.

 

6:16 They told the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,


6:17 for the great day of his wrath has come; and who is able to stand?"

Day 82

John 14

 

14:1 "Don't let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me.

 

14:2 In my Father's house are many homes. If it weren't so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.

 

14:3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also.

 

14:4 Where I go, you know, and you know the way."

 

14:5 Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going. How can we know the way?"

 

14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.

 

14:7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on, you know him, and have seen him."

 

14:8 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us."

 

14:9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you such a long time, and do you not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. How do you say, 'Show us the Father?'

 

14:10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I tell you, I speak not from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works.

 

14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or else believe me for the very works' sake.

 

14:12 Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.

 

14:13 Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 

14:14 If you will ask anything in my name, I will do it.

 

14:15 If you love me, keep my commandments.

 

14:16 I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever,--

 

14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

 

14:18 I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

 

14:19 Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more; but you will see me. Because I live, you will live also.

 

14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.

 

14:21 One who has my commandments, and keeps them, that person is one who loves me. One who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will reveal myself to him."

 

14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, what has happened that you are about to reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?"

 

14:23 Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him.

 

14:24 He who doesn't love me doesn't keep my words. The word which you hear isn't mine, but the Father's who sent me.

 

14:25 I have said these things to you, while still living with you.

 

14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

 

14:27 Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Don't let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.

 

14:28 You heard how I told you, 'I go away, and I come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I said 'I am going to my Father;' for the Father is greater than I.

 

14:29 Now I have told you before it happens so that, when it happens, you may believe.

 

14:30 I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world comes, and he has nothing in me.

 

14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father commanded me, even so I do. Arise, let us go from here.

 

Revelation 7

 

7:1 After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree.

 

7:2 I saw another angel ascending from the sunrise, having the seal of the living God. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea,

 

7:3 saying, "Don't harm the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants of our God on their foreheads!"

 

7:4 I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel:

 

7:5 of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand, of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,

 

7:6 of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand,

 

7:7 of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand,

 

7:8 of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

 

7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.

 

7:10 They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

 

7:11 All the angels were standing around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne, and worshiped God,

 

7:12 saying, "Amen! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our God forever and ever! Amen."

 

7:13 One of the elders answered, saying to me, "These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?"

 

7:14 I told him, "My lord, you know." He said to me, "These are those who came out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes, and made them white in the Lamb's blood.

 

7:15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tabernacle over them.

 

7:16 They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat;

 

7:17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

 

Revelation 8

 

8:1 When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

 

8:2 I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

 

8:3 Another angel came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer. Much incense was given to him, that he should add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.

 

8:4 The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand.

 

8:5 The angel took the censer, and he filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it on the earth. There followed thunders, sounds, lightnings, and an earthquake.

 

8:6 The seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

 

8:7 The first sounded, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. One third of the earth was burnt up, and one third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

 

8:8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great burning mountain was thrown into the sea. One third of the sea became blood,

 

8:9 and one third of the living creatures which were in the sea died. One third of the ships were destroyed.

 

8:10 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch, and it fell on one third of the rivers, and on the springs of the waters.

 

8:11 The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood. Many people died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

 

8:12 The fourth angel sounded, and one third of the sun was struck, and one third of the moon, and one third of the stars; so that one third of them would be darkened, and the day wouldn't shine for one third of it, and the night in the same way.


8:13 I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe for those who dwell on the earth, because of the other voices of the trumpets of the three angels, who are yet to sound!"

Day 83

John 15

 

15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.

 

15:2 Every branch in me that doesn't bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

 

15:3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

 

15:4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.

 

15:5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

 

15:6 If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

 

15:7 If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.

 

15:8 "In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples.

 

15:9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love.

 

15:10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and remain in his love.

 

15:11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full.

 

15:12 "This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.

 

15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

 

15:14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.

 

15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant doesn't know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, for everything that I heard from my Father, I have made known to you.

 

15:16 You didn't choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you will ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

 

15:17 "I command these things to you, that you may love one another.

 

15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you.

 

15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

 

15:20 Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his lord.'  If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also.

 

15:21 But all these things will they do to you for my name's sake, because they don't know him who sent me.

 

15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.

 

15:23 He who hates me, hates my Father also.

 

15:24 If I hadn't done among them the works which no one else did, they wouldn't have had sin. But now have they seen and also hated both me and my Father.

 

15:25 But this happened so that the word may be fulfilled which was written in their law, 'They hated me without a cause.'

 

15:26 "When the Counselor has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.

 

15:27 You will also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.

 

Revelation 9

 

9:1 The fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the earth. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him.

 

9:2 He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit.

 

9:3 Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

 

9:4 They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those people who don't have God's seal on their foreheads.

 

9:5 They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a person.

 

9:6 In those days people will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

 

9:7 The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war. On their heads were something like golden crowns, and their faces were like people's faces.

 

9:8 They had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like those of lions.

 

9:9 They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron. The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war.

 

9:10 They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails they have power to harm men for five months.

 

9:11 They have over them as king the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is "Abaddon,"

 

9:12 The first woe is past. Behold, there are still two woes coming after this.

 

9:13 The sixth angel sounded. I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before God,

 

9:14 saying to the sixth angel who had one trumpet, "Free the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates!"

 

9:15 The four angels were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year, so that they might kill one third of mankind.

 

9:16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million. I heard the number of them.

 

9:17 Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of lions. Out of their mouths proceed fire, smoke, and sulfur.

 

9:18 By these three plagues were one third of mankind killed: by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur, which proceeded out of their mouths.

 

9:19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they harm.

 

9:20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues, didn't repent of the works of their hands, that they wouldn't worship demons, and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk.

 

9:21 They didn't repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries,  nor of their sexual immorality, nor of their thefts.

 

Revelation 10

 

10:1 I saw a mighty angel coming down out of the sky, clothed with a cloud. A rainbow was on his head. His face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.

 

10:2 He had in his hand a little open book. He set his right foot on the sea, and his left on the land.

 

10:3 He cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars. When he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.

 

10:4 When the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from the sky saying, "Seal up the things which the seven thunders said, and don't write them."

 

10:5 The angel who I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to the sky,

 

10:6 and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there will no longer be delay,

 

10:7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as he declared to his servants, the prophets.

 

10:8 The voice which I heard from heaven, again speaking with me, said, "Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land."

 

10:9 I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. He said to me, "Take it, and eat it up. It will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey."

 

10:10 I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth. When I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.


10:11 They told me, "You must prophesy again over many peoples, nations, languages, and kings."

Day 84

John 16

 

16:1 "These things have I spoken to you, so that you wouldn't be caused to stumble.

 

16:2 They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time comes that whoever kills you will think that he offers service to God.

 

16:3 They will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.

 

16:4 But I have told you these things, so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them. I didn't tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you.

 

16:5 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'

 

16:6 But because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.

 

16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don't go away, the Counselor won't come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.

 

16:8 When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment;

 

16:9 about sin, because they don't believe in me;

 

16:10 about righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you won't see me any more;

 

16:11 about judgment, because the prince of this world has been judged.

 

16:12 "I have yet many things to tell you, but you can't bear them now.

 

16:13 However when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever he hears, he will speak. He will declare to you things that are coming.

 

16:14 He will glorify me, for he will take from what is mine, and will declare it to you.

 

16:15 All things whatever the Father has are mine; therefore I said that he takes of mine, and will declare it to you.

 

16:16 A little while, and you will not see me. Again a little while, and you will see me."

 

16:17 Some of his disciples therefore said to one another, "What is this that he says to us, 'A little while, and you won't see me, and again a little while, and you will see me;' and, 'Because I go to the Father?'"

 

16:18 They said therefore, "What is this that he says, 'A little while?' We don't know what he is saying."

 

16:19 Therefore Jesus perceived that they wanted to ask him, and he said to them, "Do you inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said, 'A little while, and you won't see me, and again a little while, and you will see me?'

 

16:20 Most certainly I tell you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

 

16:21 A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow, because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she doesn't remember the anguish any more, for the joy that a human being is born into the world.

 

16:22 Therefore you now have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.

 

16:23 "In that day you will ask me no questions. Most certainly I tell you, whatever you may ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.

 

16:24 Until now, you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.

 

16:25 I have spoken these things to you in figures of speech. But the time is coming when I will no more speak to you in figures of speech, but will tell you plainly about the Father.

 

16:26 In that day you will ask in my name; and I don't say to you, that I will pray to the Father for you,

 

16:27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from God.

 

16:28 I came out from the Father, and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world, and go to the Father."

 

16:29 His disciples said to him, "Behold, now you speak plainly, and speak no figures of speech.

 

16:30 Now we know that you know all things, and don't need for anyone to question you. By this we believe that you came forth from God."

 

16:31 Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe?

 

16:32 Behold, the time is coming, yes, and has now come, that you will be scattered, everyone to his own place, and you will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

 

16:33 I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have oppression; but cheer up! I have overcome the world."

 

Revelation 11

 

11:1 A reed like a rod was given to me. Someone said, "Rise, and measure God's temple, and the altar, and those who worship in it.

 

11:2 Leave out the court which is outside of the temple, and don't measure it, for it has been given to the nations. They will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.

 

11:3 I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."

 

11:4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands, standing before the Lord of the earth.

 

11:5 If anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone desires to harm them, he must be killed in this way.

 

11:6 These have the power to shut up the sky, that it may not rain during the days of their prophecy. They have power over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.

 

11:7 When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them.

 

11:8 Their dead bodies will be in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.

 

11:9 From among the peoples, tribes, languages, and nations people will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.

 

11:10 Those who dwell on the earth rejoice over them, and they will be glad. They will give gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

 

11:11 After the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet. Great fear fell on those who saw them.

 

11:12 I heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here!" They went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies saw them.

 

11:13 In that day there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

 

11:14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe comes quickly.

 

11:15 The seventh angel sounded, and great voices in heaven followed, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of his Christ. He will reign forever and ever!"

 

11:16 The twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God's throne, fell on their faces and worshiped God,

 

11:17 saying: "We give you thanks, Lord God, the Almighty, the one who is and who was; because you have taken your great power, and reigned.

 

11:18 The nations were angry, and your wrath came, as did the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your bondservants the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints, and those who fear your name, to the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth."

 

11:19 God's temple that is in heaven was opened, and the ark of the Lord's covenant was seen in his temple. Lightnings, sounds, thunders, an earthquake, and great hail followed.

 

Revelation 12

 

12:1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

 

12:2 She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.

 

12:3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns.

 

12:4 His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.

 

12:5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne.

 

12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days.

 

12:7 There was war in the sky. Michael and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war.

 

12:8 They didn't prevail, neither was a place found for him any more in heaven.

 

12:9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

 

12:10 I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now is come the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.

 

12:11 They overcame him because of the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death.

 

12:12 Therefore rejoice, heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil has gone down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time."

 

12:13 When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.

 

12:14 Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

 

12:15 The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.

 

12:16 The earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.


12:17 The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's commandments and hold Jesus' testimony.

Day 85

John 17

 

17:1 Jesus said these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you;

 

17:2 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him.

 

17:3 This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ.

 

17:4 I glorified you on the earth. I have accomplished the work which you have given me to do.

 

17:5 Now, Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world existed.

 

17:6 I revealed your name to the people whom you have given me out of the world. They were yours, and you have given them to me. They have kept your word.

 

17:7 Now they have known that all things whatever you have given me are from you,

 

17:8 for the words which you have given me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew for sure that I came forth from you, and they have believed that you sent me.

 

17:9 I pray for them. I don't pray for the world, but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.

 

17:10 All things that are mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.

 

17:11 I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them through your name which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are.

 

17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom you have given me I have kept. None of them is lost, except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

 

17:13 But now I come to you, and I say these things in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves.

 

17:14 I have given them your word. The world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 

17:15 I pray not that you would take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one.

 

17:16 They are not of the world even as I am not of the world.

 

17:17 Sanctify them in your truth. Your word is truth.

 

17:18 As you sent me into the world, even so I have sent them into the world.

 

17:19 For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

 

17:20 Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word,

 

17:21 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me.

 

17:22 The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one;

 

17:23 I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me.

 

17:24 Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

 

17:25 Righteous Father, the world hasn't known you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me.

 

17:26 I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them."

 

Revelation 13

 

13:1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads. On his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads, blasphemous names.

 

13:2 The beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

 

13:3 One of his heads looked like it had been wounded fatally. His fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled at the beast.

 

13:4 They worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

 

13:5 A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him.

 

13:6 He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven.

 

13:7 It was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him.

 

13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed.

 

13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

 

13:10 If anyone has captivity, he will go into captivity. If anyone is with the sword, he must be killed.  Here is the endurance and the faith of the saints.

 

13:11 I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon.

 

13:12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.

 

13:13 He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the sight of people.

 

13:14 He deceives my own people who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived.

 

13:15 It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn't worship the image of the beast to be killed.

 

13:16 He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads;

 

13:17 and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.

 

13:18 Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six.

 

Revelation 14

 

14:1 I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him a number, one hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads.

 

14:2 I heard a sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of a great thunder. The sound which I heard was like that of harpists playing on their harps.

 

14:3 They sing a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the one hundred forty-four thousand, those who had been redeemed out of the earth.

 

14:4 These are those who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed by Jesus from among men, the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.

 

14:5 In their mouth was found no lie, for they are blameless.

 

14:6 I saw an angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal Good News to proclaim to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation, tribe, language, and people.

 

14:7 He said with a loud voice, "Fear the Lord, and give him glory; for the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and the springs of waters!"

 

14:8 Another, a second angel, followed, saying, "Babylon the great has fallen, which has made all the nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality."

 

14:9 Another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead, or on his hand,

 

14:10 he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger. He will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.

 

14:11 The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. They have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.

 

14:12 Here is the patience of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."

 

14:13 I heard the voice from heaven saying, "Write, 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them."

 

14:14 I looked, and behold, a white cloud; and on the cloud one sitting like a son of man,  having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

 

14:15 Another angel came out from the temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, "Send forth your sickle, and reap; for the hour to reap has come; for the harvest of the earth is ripe!"

 

14:16 He who sat on the cloud thrust his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

 

14:17 Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven. He also had a sharp sickle.

 

14:18 Another angel came out from the altar, he who has power over fire, and he called with a great voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for the earth's grapes are fully ripe!"

 

14:19 The angel thrust his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.


14:20 The winepress was trodden outside of the city, and blood came out from the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, as far as 156 miles.

Day 86

John 18

 

18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples over the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, into which he and his disciples entered.

 

18:2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples.

 

18:3 Judas then, having taken a detachment of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.

 

18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all the things that were happening to him, went forth, and said to them, "Who are you looking for?"

 

18:5 They answered him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am he." Judas also, who betrayed him, was standing with them.

 

18:6 When therefore he said to them, "I am he," they went backward, and fell to the ground.

 

18:7 Again therefore he asked them, "Who are you looking for?" They said, "Jesus of Nazareth."

 

18:8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way,"

 

18:9 that the word might be fulfilled which he spoke, "Of those whom you have given me, I have lost none."

 

18:10 Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

 

18:11 Jesus therefore said to Peter, "Put the sword into its sheath. The cup which the Father has given me, shall I not surely drink it?"

 

18:12 So the detachment, the commanding officer, and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him,

 

18:13 and led him to Annas first, for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.

 

18:14 Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient that one man should perish for the people.

 

18:15 Simon Peter followed Jesus, as did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered in with Jesus into the court of the high priest;

 

18:16 but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought in Peter.

 

18:17 Then the maid who kept the door said to Peter, "Are you also one of this man's disciples?" He said, "I am not."

 

18:18 Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold. They were warming themselves. Peter was with them, standing and warming himself.

 

18:19 The high priest therefore asked Jesus about his disciples, and about his teaching.

 

18:20 Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where the Jews always meet. I said nothing in secret.

 

18:21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me what I said to them. Behold, these know the things which I said."

 

18:22 When he had said this, one of the officers standing by slapped Jesus with his hand, saying, "Do you answer the high priest like that?"

 

18:23 Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, testify of the evil; but if well, why do you beat me?"

 

18:24 Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas, the high priest.

 

18:25 Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said therefore to him, "You aren't also one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it, and said, "I am not."

 

18:26 One of the servants of the high priest, being a relative of him whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Didn't I see you in the garden with him?"

 

18:27 Peter therefore denied it again, and immediately the rooster crowed.

 

18:28 They led Jesus therefore from Caiaphas into the Praetorium. It was early, and they themselves didn't enter into the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the Passover.

 

18:29 Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, "What accusation do you bring against this man?"

 

18:30 They answered him, "If this man weren't an evildoer, we wouldn't have delivered him up to you."

 

18:31 Pilate therefore said to them, "Take him yourselves, and judge him according to your law." Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,"

 

18:32 that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying by what kind of death he should die.

 

18:33 Pilate therefore entered again into the Praetorium, called Jesus, and said to him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"

 

18:34 Jesus answered him, "Do you say this by yourself, or did others tell you about me?"

 

18:35 Pilate answered, "I'm not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered you to me. What have you done?"

 

18:36 Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I wouldn't be delivered to the Jews. But now my Kingdom is not from here."

 

18:37 Pilate therefore said to him, "Are you a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this reason I have been born, and for this reason I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice."

 

18:38 Pilate said to him, "What is truth?" When he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, "I find no basis for a charge against him.

 

18:39 But you have a custom, that I should release someone to you at the Passover. Therefore do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"

 

18:40 Then they all shouted again, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.

 

Revelation 15

 

15:1 I saw another great and marvelous sign in the sky: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them God's wrath is finished.

 

15:2 I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who overcame the beast, his image,  and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

 

15:3 They sang the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God, the Almighty! Righteous and true are your ways, you King of the nations.

 

15:4 Who wouldn't fear you, Lord, and glorify your name? For you only are holy. For all the nations will come and worship before you. For your righteous acts have been revealed."

 

15:5 After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.

 

15:6 The seven angels who had the seven plagues came out, clothed with pure, bright linen, and wearing golden sashes around their breasts.

 

15:7 One of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever.

 

15:8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power. No one was able to enter into the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels would be finished.

 

Revelation 16

 

16:1 I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the earth!"

 

16:2 The first went, and poured out his bowl into the earth, and it became a harmful and evil sore on the people who had the mark of the beast, and who worshiped his image.

 

16:3 The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man. Every living thing in the sea died.

 

16:4 The third poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

 

16:5 I heard the angel of the waters saying, "You are righteous, who are and who were, you Holy One, because you have judged these things.

 

16:6 For they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve this."

 

16:7 I heard the altar saying, "Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments."

 

16:8 The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire.

 

16:9 People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn't repent and give him glory.

 

16:10 The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was darkened. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain,

 

16:11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn't repent of their works.

 

16:12 The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates. Its water was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the kings that come from the sunrise.

 

16:13 I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs;

 

16:14 for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty.

 

16:15 "Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn't walk naked, and they see his shame."

 

16:16 He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.

 

16:17 The seventh poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"

 

16:18 There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men on the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty.

 

16:19 The great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

 

16:20 Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.


16:21 Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.

Day 87

John 19

 

19:1 So Pilate then took Jesus, and flogged him.

 

19:2 The soldiers twisted thorns into a crown, and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple garment.

 

19:3 They kept saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" and they kept slapping him.

 

19:4 Then Pilate went out again, and said to them, "Behold, I bring him out to you, that you may know that I find no basis for a charge against him."

 

19:5 Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. Pilate said to them, "Behold, the man!"

 

19:6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they shouted, saying, "Crucify! Crucify!" Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves, and crucify him, for I find no basis for a charge against him."

 

19:7 The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God."

 

19:8 When therefore Pilate heard this saying, he was more afraid.

 

19:9 He entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Jesus, "Where are you from?" But Jesus gave him no answer.

 

19:10 Pilate therefore said to him, "Aren't you speaking to me? Don't you know that I have power to release you, and have power to crucify you?"

 

19:11 Jesus answered, "You would have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above. Therefore he who delivered me to you has greater sin."

 

19:12 At this, Pilate was seeking to release him, but the Jews cried out, saying, "If you release this man, you aren't Caesar's friend! Everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar!"

 

19:13 When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called "The Pavement," but in Hebrew, "Gabbatha."

 

19:14 Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, at about noon.  He said to the Jews, "Behold, your King!"

 

19:15 They cried out, "Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!" Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar!"

 

19:16 So then he delivered him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led him away.

 

19:17 He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called "The Place of a Skull," which is called in Hebrew, "Golgotha,"

 

19:18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.

 

19:19 Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, "JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS."

 

19:20 Therefore many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.

 

19:21 The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, "Don't write, 'The King of the Jews,' but, 'he said, I am King of the Jews.'"

 

19:22 Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."

 

19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also the coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

 

19:24 Then they said to one another, "Let's not tear it, but cast lots for it to decide whose it will be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which says, "They parted my garments among them. For my cloak they cast lots."  Therefore the soldiers did these things.

 

19:25 But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

 

19:26 Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold your son!"

 

19:27 Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" From that hour, the disciple took her to his own home.

 

19:28 After this, Jesus, seeing  that all things were now finished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I am thirsty."

 

19:29 Now a vessel full of vinegar was set there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop, and held it at his mouth.

 

19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished." He bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.

 

19:31 Therefore the Jews, because it was the Preparation Day, so that the bodies wouldn't remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special one), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

 

19:32 Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him;

 

19:33 but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they didn't break his legs.

 

19:34 However one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.

 

19:35 He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, that you may believe.

 

19:36 For these things happened, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "A bone of him will not be broken."

 

19:37 Again another Scripture says, "They will look on him whom they pierced."

 

19:38 After these things, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away Jesus' body. Pilate gave him permission. He came therefore and took away his body.

 

19:39 Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.

 

19:40 So they took Jesus' body, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.

 

19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden. In the garden was a new tomb in which no man had ever yet been laid.

 

19:42 Then because of the Jews' Preparation Day (for the tomb was near at hand) they laid Jesus there.

 

Revelation 17

 

17:1 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, "Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who sits on many waters,

 

17:2 with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and those who dwell in the earth were made drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality."

 

17:3 He carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored animal, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.

 

17:4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of the sexual immorality of the earth.

 

17:5 And on her forehead a name was written, "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

 

17:6 I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered with great amazement.

 

17:7 The angel said to me, "Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

 

17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on the earth and whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see that the beast was, and is not, and shall be present.

 

17:9 Here is the mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.

 

17:10 They are seven kings. Five have fallen, the one is, the other has not yet come. When he comes, he must continue a little while.

 

17:11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goes to destruction.

 

17:12 The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour.

 

17:13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast.

 

17:14 These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful."

 

17:15 He said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.

 

17:16 The ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the prostitute, and will make her desolate, and will make her naked, and will eat her flesh, and will burn her utterly with fire.

 

17:17 For God has put in their hearts to do what he has in mind, and to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God should be accomplished.

 

17:18 The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth."

 

Revelation 18

 

18:1 After these things, I saw another angel coming down out of the sky, having great authority. The earth was illuminated with his glory.

 

18:2 He cried with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and she has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird!

 

18:3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality, the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from the abundance of her luxury."

 

18:4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, that you have no participation in her sins, and that you don't receive of her plagues,

 

18:5 for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities.

 

18:6 Return to her just as she returned, and repay her double as she did, and according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix to her double.

 

18:7 However much she glorified herself, and grew wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning. For she says in her heart, 'I sit a queen, and am no widow, and will in no way see mourning.'

 

18:8 Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire; for the Lord God who has judged her is strong.

 

18:9 The kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived wantonly with her, will weep and wail over her, when they look at the smoke of her burning,

 

18:10 standing far away for the fear of her torment, saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For your judgment has come in one hour.'

 

18:11 The merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise any more;

 

18:12 merchandise of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, all expensive wood, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble;

 

18:13 and cinnamon, incense, perfume, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, sheep, horses, chariots, and people's bodies and souls.

 

18:14 The fruits which your soul lusted after have been lost to you, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous have perished from you, and you will find them no more at all.

 

18:15 The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, will stand far away for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;

 

18:16 saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, she who was dressed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls!

 

18:17 For in an hour such great riches are made desolate.' Every shipmaster, and everyone who sails anywhere, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by sea, stood far away,

 

18:18 and cried out as they looked at the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like the great city?'

 

18:19 They cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had their ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her great wealth!' For in one hour is she made desolate.

 

18:20 "Rejoice over her, O heaven, you saints, apostles, and prophets; for God has judged your judgment on her."

 

18:21 A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all.

 

18:22 The voice of harpists, minstrels, flute players, and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatsoever craft, will be found anymore at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you.

 

18:23 The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived.


18:24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on the earth."

Day 88

John 20

 

20:1 Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.

 

20:2 Therefore she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have laid him!"

 

20:3 Therefore Peter and the other disciple went out, and they went toward the tomb.

 

20:4 They both ran together. The other disciple outran Peter, and came to the tomb first.

 

20:5 Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he didn't enter in.

 

20:6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and entered into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying,

 

20:7 and the cloth that had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself.

 

20:8 So then the other disciple who came first to the tomb also entered in, and he saw and believed.

 

20:9 For as yet they didn't know the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

 

20:10 So the disciples went away again to their own homes.

 

20:11 But Mary was standing outside at the tomb weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb,

 

20:12 and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

 

20:13 They told her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don't know where they have laid him."

 

20:14 When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and didn't know that it was Jesus.

 

20:15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?" She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."

 

20:16 Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him, "Rabbouni!" which is to say, "Teacher!"

 

20:17 Jesus said to her, "Don't touch me, for I haven't yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brothers, and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'"

 

20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had said these things to her.

 

20:19 When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were locked where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be to you."

 

20:20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad when they saw the Lord.

 

20:21 Jesus therefore said to them again, "Peace be to you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you."

 

20:22 When he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit!

 

20:23 Whoever's sins you forgive, they are forgiven them. Whoever's sins you retain, they have been retained."

 

20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, wasn't with them when Jesus came.

 

20:25 The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."

 

20:26 After eight days again his disciples were inside, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, the doors being locked, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be to you."

 

20:27 Then he said to Thomas, "Reach here your finger, and see my hands. Reach here your hand, and put it into my side. Don't be unbelieving, but believing."

 

20:28 Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!"

 

20:29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed."

 

20:30 Therefore Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book;

 

20:31 but these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.

 

Revelation 19

 

19:1 After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, "Hallelujah! Salvation, power, and glory belong to our God:

 

19:2 for true and righteous are his judgments. For he has judged the great prostitute, who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and he has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand."

 

19:3 A second said, "Hallelujah! Her smoke goes up forever and ever."

 

19:4 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne, saying, "Amen! Hallelujah!"

 

19:5 A voice came forth from the throne, saying, "Give praise to our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, the small and the great!"

 

19:6 I heard something like the voice of a great multitude, and like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!

 

19:7 Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready."

 

19:8 It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

 

19:9 He said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" He said to me, "These are true words of God."

 

19:10 I fell down before his feet to worship him. He said to me, "Look! Don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy."

 

19:11 I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war.

 

19:12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself.

 

19:13 He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called "The Word of God."

 

19:14 The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen.

 

19:15 Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod.  He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.

 

19:16 He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

 

19:17 I saw an angel standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, "Come! Be gathered together to the great supper of God,

 

19:18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great."

 

19:19 I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army.

 

19:20 The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.

 

19:21 The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth. All the birds were filled with their flesh.

 

Revelation 20

 

20:1 I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.

 

20:2 He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole inhabited earth, and bound him for a thousand years,

 

20:3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were finished. After this, he must be freed for a short time.

 

20:4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

 

20:5 The rest of the dead didn't live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

 

20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him one thousand years.

 

20:7 And after the thousand years, Satan will be released from his prison,

 

20:8 and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

 

20:9 They went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. Fire came down out of heaven from God, and devoured them.

 

20:10 The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

20:11 I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them.

 

20:12 I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.

 

20:13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works.

 

20:14 Death and hell were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.


20:15 If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

Day 89

John 21

 

21:1 After these things, Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself this way.

 

21:2 Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together.

 

21:3 Simon Peter said to them, "I'm going fishing." They told him, "We are also coming with you." They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing.

 

21:4 But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus.

 

21:5 Jesus therefore said to them, "Children, have you anything to eat?" They answered him, "No."

 

21:6 He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." They cast it therefore, and now they weren't able to draw it in for the multitude of fish.

 

21:7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It's the Lord!" So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around him (for he was naked), and threw himself into the sea.

 

21:8 But the other disciples came in the little boat for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.

 

21:9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread.

 

21:10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have just caught."

 

21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fish, one hundred fifty-three; and even though there were so many, the net wasn't torn.

 

21:12 Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." None of the disciples dared inquire of him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord.

 

21:13 Then Jesus came and took the bread, gave it to them, and the fish likewise.

 

21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus was revealed to his disciples, after he had risen from the dead.

 

21:15 So when they had eaten their breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."

 

21:16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep."

 

21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you have affection for me?" Peter was grieved because he asked him the third time, "Do you have affection for me?" He said to him, "Lord, you know everything. You know that I have affection for you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.

 

21:18 Most certainly I tell you, when you were young, you dressed yourself, and walked where you wanted to. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you, and carry you where you don't want to go."

 

21:19 Now he said this, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. When he had said this, he said to him, "Follow me."

 

21:20 Then Peter, turning around, saw a disciple following. This was the disciple whom Jesus sincerely loved, the one who had also leaned on Jesus' breast at the supper and asked, "Lord, who is going to betray You?"

 

21:21 Peter seeing him, said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?"

 

21:22 Jesus said to him, "If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you? You follow me."

 

21:23 This saying therefore went out among the brothers, that this disciple wouldn't die. Yet Jesus didn't say to him that he wouldn't die, but, "If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you?"

 

21:24 This is the disciple who testifies about these things, and wrote these things. We know that his witness is true.

 

21:25 There are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they would all be written, I suppose that even the world itself wouldn't have room for the books that would be written.

 

Revelation 21

 

21:1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.

 

21:2 I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.

 

21:3 I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, God's dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

 

21:4 He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away."

 

21:5 He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." He said, "Write, for these words of God are faithful and true."

 

21:6 He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life.

 

21:7 He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son.

 

21:8 But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."

 

21:9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were loaded with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, "Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb's bride."

 

21:10 He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,

 

21:11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it was a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

 

21:12 having a great and high wall; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

 

21:13 On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

 

21:14 The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

 

21:15 He who spoke with me had for a measure, a golden reed, to measure the city, its gates, and its walls.

 

21:16 The city lies foursquare, and its length is as great as its breadth. He measured the city with the reed, Twelve thousand twelve stadia. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.

 

21:17 Its wall is one hundred forty-four cubits, by the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.

 

21:18 The construction of its wall was jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass.

 

21:19 The foundations of the city's wall were adorned with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;

 

21:20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, jacinth; and the twelfth, amethyst.

 

21:21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each one of the gates was made of one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

 

21:22 I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple.

 

21:23 The city has no need for the sun, neither of the moon, to shine, for the very glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

 

21:24 The nations will walk in its light. The kings of the earth bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

 

21:25 Its gates will in no way be shut by day (for there will be no night there),

 

21:26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it so that they may enter.

 

21:27 There will in no way enter into it anything profane, or one who causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.

 

Revelation 22

 

22:1 He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,

 

22:2 in the middle of its street. On this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

 

22:3 There will be no curse any more. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants serve him.

 

22:4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.

 

22:5 There will be no night, and they need no lamp light; for the Lord God will illuminate them. They will reign forever and ever.

 

22:6 He said to me, "These words are faithful and true. The Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon."

 

22:7 "Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

 

22:8 Now I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things.

 

22:9 He said to me, "See you don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."

 

22:10 He said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.

 

22:11 He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still."

 

22:12 "Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work.

 

22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

 

22:14 Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.

 

22:15 Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

 

22:16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star."

 

22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely.

 

22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, may God add to him the plagues which are written in this book.

 

22:19 If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, may God take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.

 

22:20 He who testifies these things says, "Yes, I come quickly." Amen! Yes, come, Lord Jesus.


22:21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints. Amen.
