Revelation 19:1-21

1 After these things I heard something like the loud sound of a great crowd in heaven saying, 2 because his judgments are true and righteous, because he has passed judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and has avenged the blood of his slaves shed by* her hand!" 3 And a second time they said, 4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who is seated on the throne, saying, 5 And a voice came out from the throne, saying, 6 And I heard something like the sound of a great crowd and something like the sound of many waters and something like the sound of powerful thunder, saying, 7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him the glory, because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come, and his bride has prepared herself. 8 And it has been granted to her that she be dressed in bright, clean fine linen (for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints). 9 And he said to me, "Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the banquet of the wedding celebration of the Lamb!" And he said to me, "These are the true words of God." 10 And I fell down before his feet to worship him, and he said to me, "Do not do that!* I am a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and the one seated on it was called "Faithful" and "True," and with justice* he judges and makes war. 12 Now his eyes were a flame of fire, and on his head were many royal headbands having a name written that no one except he himself knows. 13 And he was dressed in an outer garment dipped in blood, and his name is called the Word of God. 14 And the armies that are in heaven, dressed in clean, white fine linen, were following him on white horses. 15 And out of his mouth came a sharp sword, so that with it he could strike the nations. And he will shepherd them with an iron rod,* and he stomps the winepress of the wine of the furious wrath of God, the All-Powerful. 16 And he has a name written on his outer garment and on his thigh: "King of kings and Lord of lords." 17 And I saw one angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly directly overhead*, 18 in order that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of military tribunes, and the flesh of the powerful, and the flesh of horses and those seated on them, and the flesh of all people, both free and slave, and small and great!" 19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war with the one who is seated on the horse and with his army. 20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs before him, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who had worshiped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur. 21 And the rest were killed by the sword of the one who is seated on the horse—the sword that comes out of his mouth—and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

Ezekiel 38:1-23

1 And the word of Yahweh came* to me, saying,* 2 "Son of man,* set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the head* leader of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. 3 And you must say, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Look! I am against you, Gog, the head* leader of Meshach and Tubal, 4 and I will turn you around, and I will place* hooks in your cheeks, and I will bring you out and all of your horses and horsemen fully armed,* all of them, a great crowd, holding a shield,* and small shield, and holding* swords, all of them. 5 Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them, with a small shield and helmet. 6 Gomer and all of its troops, Beth Togarmah, the remote areas of the north, and with all of its troops and many peoples with them. 7 Be ready, and prepare yourselves,* you and all of your assembly,* the assembling* around you, and you must be* for them as a guard. 8 After many days you will be mustered; in the last years* you will come to a restored land from the sword, gathered from many peoples on the mountains of Israel which were as permanent ruins* but from peoples it was brought out, and they will dwell in safety,* all of them. 9 And you will advance like a storm; you will come, and you will be like a cloud covering* the land, and all of your troops and many nations along with you." 10 " 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "And then* on that day, things* will come up on* your mind, and you will devise evil plans. 11 And you will say, 'I will go up against a land of open country; I will come* to the people being at rest in safety,* all of them dwelling without a wall* and crossbars* and without doors,* 12 to* loot loot,* and to plunder* plunder, to assail* inhabited ruins and a people gathered together from various peoples and who are acquiring livestock and goods and dwelling at the center of the world. 13 Sheba and Dedan and traders of Tarshish and all its strong lions,* they will ask you, 'To* loot loot* are you coming? To plunder* plunder have you summoned your assembly, to take away silver and gold, to take livestock and goods, to loot great amounts* of loot?" ' 14 "Therefore prophesy, son of man,* and you must say to Gog, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Will you not realize* on that day when my people Israel are dwelling in safety,* 15 and so you will come from your place, from the remote areas of the north, you and many people with you, horsemen* all of them, a great crowd and a vast army, 16 and you will advance against my people Israel like a cloud covering* the land; it will be* in the last days, and I will bring you against my land, so that the nations know me, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes, O Gog!" ' 17 "Thus says the Lord Yahweh, 'Are you he of whom I spoke in former days by the hand of my servants the prophets of Israel who were prophesying in those days for years that I would bring you against them? 18 And so then in that day, on the day of the coming of God against the land of Israel,' declares* the Lord Yahweh, 'my rage will come up in my anger. 19 And in my passion, in the fire of my wrath, I spoke* that certainly* on that day a great earthquake will be on the land of Israel. 20 And the fish of the sea and the birds* of the heaven* and the animals* of the field and all of the creeping things that creep on the earth and all of the humans* who are on the surface of the earth will shake at my presence;* and the mountains will be demolished, and the steep mountain sides will fall, and every wall on* the earth will fall. 21 And I will call against him* in all of my mountains a sword,' declares* the Lord Yahweh, 'And the sword of each person will be against his brother. 22 And I will execute justice with* him with a plague and with blood and torrents of rain,* and hailstones; fire and sulfur I will cause to fall on him and on his troops and on many peoples who are with him. 23 And so I will exalt myself, and I will show myself holy, and I will make myself known before the eyes of many nations, and they will know that I am Yahweh.'"
