Revelation 20:4

4 And I saw thrones – and they sit (or: sat; are seated) upon them, and judgment-effects (decision-results; judicial process and verdict) is given by them (or: authority to judge was given to them; decisions and separations are made by them) – and souls (inner lives) of those being ones having been cut with an axe (= beheaded) because of the testimony (witness) of (or: pertaining to; from) Jesus, and because of the Word of and from God – even those (or: also the ones) who do not (or: did not) worship the little wild animal (or: beast), nor its image, and do not (or: did not) take (or: receive) the imprinted mark (engraving; carve-effect; result of sculpting) upon their forehead and upon their right hand – and they live and reign (or: lived and reigned) with the Christ (the Anointed One) one thousand [other MSS: the thousand] years.

Revelation 12:1-17

1 Next a great sign was seen within the atmosphere (or: sky; or: heaven): a Woman having been clothed (cast around) with the sun, and the moon down under her feet, and a wreath of twelve stars upon her head. 2 And being pregnant (continuously having or holding within the womb), she is constantly crying (or: repeatedly uttering a cry), travailing with birth-pangs, and being progressively tested and tried in the labor pains (or: experiencing the touchstone) to bring forth (= to bear a child). 3 Then another sign was seen within the atmosphere (or: sky; heaven): and consider this!, a great fiery-colored dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven bands (diadems; kingly ornaments) upon its seven heads. 4 And its tail is progressively dragging the third of the stars of the sky (or: heaven), and casts (or: it cast; it threw) them into the earth (or: onto the Land, or, ground). And the dragon stood (had made a stand) before (or: in the presence of) the Woman – the one being about to bring forth (= to give birth) – to the end that whenever she may bring forth, it may devour (eat down; consume) her child. 5 And so she brought forth a Son – an adult man (or: male; masculine one) Who is about to continuously shepherd all the multitudes (ethnic groups; nations) in the sphere of and with relying on the use of an iron staff (or: rod). Later, her child was snatched away (seized and carried off by force) toward God and to His throne. 6 Then the Woman fled (or: takes flight) into the wilderness (or: desert; desolate place) where she continuously has there a prepared place from God (or: a place having been made ready, from God), to the end that THEY may continuously nourish her there one thousand two hundred sixty days. 7 Next a war (or: battle) was birthed (broke out; came to be; arose) within the atmosphere (or: sky; or: heaven): the One, Michael [the One in God's likeness], and His agents [went] to war (or: to battle) with the dragon. And the dragon did battle (or: at once battles; = fought back), as well as his agents, 8 and yet they were not strong (or: had no strength), neither was their place (or: position) any longer found within the atmosphere (or: heaven; [comment: a symbol of a position of authority, control and dominion]). 9 And so thrown (or: hurled; cast; tossed) is (or: was) the great dragon, the serpent from the very beginning (or: the original, or ancient, serpent) – the one being continuously called "slanderer" (one who thrusts something through [folks]; false accuser; separator; a "devil;" one who casts something throughout the midst [to cause division]) and the adversary (the opponent; the satan; [p47 and other MSS: one who stands in opposition; a counter-worker]), the one continuously causing the whole inhabited area of the earth to wander (or: that which causes straying; the one continually deceiving). It was (or: is) hurled (thrown; cast; tossed) into the earth (or: Land), and its agents were (or: are) thrown (cast; tossed) with it. 10 Then I heard a great (or: loud) voice within the atmosphere (or: sky; or: heaven) repeatedly saying, "At the present moment (or: Just now) the deliverance (the return to the original state and condition; the rescue; the health and wholeness; salvation), and the authority, and the kingdom (or: reign) of our God was (or: is) birthed (comes into existence; came to be), also the authority of His Anointed (or: His Christ; His anointed one), because our brothers' accuser (the accuser of our fellow believers) was cast down (and: is hurled down) – the one that was or is by habit repeatedly accusing them before (or: in the sight and presence of) our God, day and night." [comment: this phrase logically indicates that the location is on earth, where there is day and night] 11 And they at once overcame (or: at some point overcome; conquer) him because of the blood of the little Lamb, and (or: even) because of the word (or: message; Word; Logos) of their witness (evidence; testimony) – and they love not (or: did not love) their soul (soul-life; inner self; personhood) even to (or: until) death. 12 Because of this, you atmospheres (or: heavens) – and the folks continuously tabernacling (or: normally living in a tent; presently encamping) within the midst of them – must continuously make yourselves glad (keep or develop a good frame of mind; rejoice). Woe to (or: Alas for; A tragedy into) the Land (or: earth) and the sea, because the slanderer (separator; opposer; "devil;" the one who thrusts-through) is (or: was) cast down to you, having great anger (violent breathing; rushing passion), knowing that he continues having a little season (a small suitable place; a limited circumstance; a brief fitting situation). 13 And when (at the time that) the dragon suddenly saw (or: sees; perceived; observes) that it is thrown (was cast, thrust) into the earth (or: Land), it pursued (pursues, presses forward, runs swiftly to catch) the woman who brought forth (= gave birth to) the Man (or: male). 14 Then two wings of the Great Eagle (or: Vulture) were given to the Woman (or: are given for the Woman), to the end that she may progressively fly into the wilderness (desert; uninhabited region) – into her place – where (in which place) she is there continuously nourished a season, and seasons, and half a season [Dan. 7:25; 12:7], away from the serpent's face (= its presence and ability to observe). 15 Next the serpent cast (or: spews) water, as a river (or: stream), from out of its mouth, behind the Woman (at the Woman's back; after the Woman) to the end that it may cause her to be carried away by the river (i.e., by its current). 16 So then the Land (or: ground; earth) ran to the aid of (or: runs and helps) the Woman, and the Land (ground; earth) at once opened (or: opens) up her mouth and swallowed (or: swallows; gulps down) the river which the dragon cast (or: casts) out of its mouth. 17 And so the dragon was enraged (is angered; swells with agitation of soul) upon the Woman and went away (or: goes off) to make war (do battle) with the remaining ones (the rest; those left) of her seed (= offspring) – those continuously keeping (guarding; observing) God's implanted goals (impartations of the finished product within; inward directives) and continuously holding the testimony of Jesus (or: having the evidence about and having the character of Jesus).

Revelation 13:17

17 even to the end that a certain one would continually be unable (or: not anyone would be continually able) to buy or to sell if [he or she is] not the one continuously having the imprinted mark-effect (engraving; carve-effect) or the name of the little animal, or the number of its name.

Revelation 14:1-20

1 Later I saw this – so consider! The little Lamb [is; was] standing (or: having made a stand) upon Mount Zion (or: the mountain, Zion), and with Him [are] one hundred forty-four thousand: folks continuously having His Name, and (or: even) His Father's Name, having been written upon their foreheads. 2 Then I heard a voice (or: sound) out of the atmosphere (or: sky; heaven), as a voice (or: sound) of many waters, and as a voice (or: sound) of a great thunder. And the voice (sound) which I heard [was] as lyre-singers, continuously playing their lyres (or: harps). 3 And they repeatedly sing a new song (or: ode) before the throne, and in the presence of the four living ones and the old folks (or: elders). And no one was able to learn the song (or: ode) except the one hundred forty-four thousand – those having been bought from the Land (or: earth). 4 These are those who were (or: are) not stained (polluted, contaminated) with women, for they are (or: exist being) virgins. These are the folks continuously following The little Lamb wherever He progressively leads [other MSS: wherever He may habitually depart]. These were (or: are) bought from humanity, a first-fruit in God (for God; to God; by God), even in (for; to; by) the little Lamb. 5 And falsehood was (or: is) not found within their mouth, for they are (or: exist being) without blemish (are flawless, blameless and without defect). 6 Next I saw an agent (or: messenger; [other MSS: another agent/messenger]) continuously flying within mid-heaven, having eonian good news (or: a message of goodness and well-being pertaining to the ages and having the character and quality of the Age), to proclaim the good news upon those situated (or: habitually sitting down) upon the Land (or: earth), and upon every multitude (nation; ethnic group), tribe, tongue, and people, 7 repeatedly saying in a great (loud) voice, "You people should reverence (or: Be respecting and fearing) God, and give glory to Him (or: grant Him a reputation; give a good opinion in Him), because the hour of His deciding (judging; judicial process; making-distinction-between) came (or: went; comes), and you must worship the One making (the Maker; the One constructing and forming) the atmosphere (or: sky; heaven) and the earth (or: land; ground) and the sea and springs of water." 8 And then another, a second agent (or: messenger), followed, repeatedly saying, "It fell (or: It falls)! Babylon the Great fell (or: falls), because it has caused all nations (all ethnic groups and multitudes) to drink out of the wine of the strong passion (violent breathing) of her prostitution (or: = idolatry; or: sexual acts contrary to the Mosaic Law)." 9 And another, a third agent (or: messenger), followed them, repeatedly saying in a great voice, "If any one is continuously worshiping the little wild animal, and its image, and is continuously receiving an imprinted mark upon his forehead or upon his hand, 10 "he or she will also proceed drinking out of the wine of God's rushing emotion (strong passion; anger) – of the one having been mixed undiluted within the cup of His inherent fervor (natural bent; impulse; indignation; wrath). And he will proceed being examined (scrutinized with the touchstone to test his "mettle") within Fire and Deity (or: in union with Fire, even Divine qualities) in the presence of (before; in the sight of) the set-apart agents, and in the presence of (before) the little Lamb." 11 And so the smoke of their examination and testing by the touchstone continually ascends on into ages of the ages. And those continually worshiping the little animal and its image – and if any one continually receives the imprinted mark (carve-effect) of its name – they, continually, are not having rest day and night [comment: day and night are representations of time elapsing on earth]. 12 Here (or: In this place) exists (or: is) the persistent and patient endurance (the steadfast, humble remaining-under for support) of the set-apart folks (or: from the saints) – the people continually keeping watch upon (guarding, observing, having custody over) God's implanted goals (impartations of the finished product within; inward purposed directives) and the faith of Jesus (or: the trust pertaining to Jesus; the loyalty belonging to Jesus; the faith which belongs to and comes from Jesus; the conviction which is Jesus; the reliability of and from Jesus). 13 Next I heard a voice out of the atmosphere (or: sky; heaven), saying, "Write: 'From the present moment (from this time; from now; henceforth) the dead ones [are] blessed (happy) folks – those continuously dying within the Lord!'" "Yes, indeed, " the Spirit continues saying, "to the end that they may rest themselves from out of their wearisome labor (travail; toilsome exhaustion), for their works (actions; deeds) are continually following together with them." [Sinaiticus & p47 omit nai, "yes, indeed, " so an alternate rendering would be: "Happy {are} the dead ones – those continuously dying in the Lord! Henceforth, the Spirit says that they may rest, for their actions follow with them.”] 14 And I saw, and look: a bright, white cloud. And upon the cloud One like a son of man (= a human; or: = the eschatological Messiah figure) continually sitting, having a golden wreath upon His head and a sharp sickle (instrument for cutting off, cropping and harvesting) in his hand. 15 Then another agent (or: messenger) came forth out of the Temple, repeatedly crying out in a great voice to the One sitting upon the cloud, "You must send Your sickle and You must reap (gather in the harvest), because the hour to reap comes (or: came), because the harvest of the Land (or: earth) is dried (parched; withered; thus: = ripened)." 16 And the One continuously sitting upon the cloud cast (or: thrusts) His sickle upon the Land (or: earth) – and the Land (or: earth) was reaped! 17 Next another agent came out of the Temple [which is] resident within the atmosphere (or: within the midst of the heaven), he, too, having a sharp sickle. 18 Then another agent, having authority upon the Fire, came forth out of the altar and uttered (or: utters) a sound by a great outcry to the one continuously holding the sharp sickle, "You must send your sharp sickle and you must gather (pick) the clusters of the Land's (or: earth's) vineyard (grapevine), because her grapes are in their prime (are at the peak of ripeness)." 19 And so the agent cast (or: thrusts) his sickle into the Land (or: earth), and picks (gathers) the vineyard of the Land and he casts [it; them] into the great wine-press (trough; tub) of God's strong passion (rushing emotion; or: anger). 20 Then the wine-press (or: trough) was trodden (or: is trod as a path) outside of the City, and blood came (or: comes; goes) forth from out of the trough (or: wine-press) up to the horses' bridle – from a thousand six hundred stadia (a fixed standard of measure; a racecourse; a stadium).

Revelation 13:16-18

16 And so it is continually making (causing; forming) all (everyone) – the little (small; = insignificant) ones and the great ones, the rich ones and the poor ones, the free ones and the slaves – to the end that they could (would; may; [some MSS: it will] give to them an imprinted mark-effect (an engraved work; emblem; result of sculpting; carve-effect [note: same root from which we get the word "character"]) upon their right hand, or upon their foreheads, 17 even to the end that a certain one would continually be unable (or: not anyone would be continually able) to buy or to sell if [he or she is] not the one continuously having the imprinted mark-effect (engraving; carve-effect) or the name of the little animal, or the number of its name. 18 Here is Wisdom! The one having a mind must calculate (compute by pebbles) the number of the little animal, for it is man's number (or: [the] number of mankind; a number pertaining to humanity; a man's number): his number [is] 666.

Revelation 13:1-18

1 and then I saw (or: perceived) a little animal (a little creature or beast) progressively climbing up (or: repeatedly ascending) from out of the midst of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and ten bands (diadems; kingly ornaments) upon its horns, and blasphemous names (or, names [other MSS: a name] of slander, abusive speech and light-hindering injury) upon its heads. 2 Then the little animal (little creature or beast) which I saw was and continued to exist like a leopard, and yet its feet [were] as a bear's, and its mouth as a lion's mouth. Next the dragon gave its ability and power, its throne, and great authority (or: license) to it [i.e., to the little animal]. 3 And one of its heads was as having been slaughtered unto death, and yet the blow of its death (or: its death-blow) was cured (or: tended; treated), and the whole Land (or: earth) followed after the little animal with fascinated wonder and admiration. 4 And so people worshiped (or: worship) the dragon because it gave (or: gives) authority to the little animal; and they worship the little animal, saying, "Who (or: What) [is] like the little animal (the little creature or beast)? And who (or: what) is able (continuously has power) to do battle (or: wage war) with it?" 5 Then a mouth, continuously speaking great things and blasphemies (things that obscure the light; abusive slander; harm-avering misrepresentations) was given to it. Authority to act (or: to make or do) [for] forty-two months [other MSS read: to make war 42 months; another early MS reads: to do what it wills 42 months] was also given to it (or: And so, a right from out of Being was allowed for it to suddenly form, construct and create [over a period of] forty-two months). 6 So it opened (or: at once opens) its mouth unto blasphemies (injurious slander) toward God, to blaspheme (misrepresent and hinder the light of) His Name and His Tabernacle: those continuously tabernacling (or: camping in tents; living in the Tabernacle) within the atmosphere (or: heaven). 7 Next it was (or: is) given to it to wage war (or: was allowed to do battle) with the set-apart folks (holy people) and to overcome them. And authority was given (or: Then right and privilege from out of its being was allowed) to it upon every tribe and people and tongue and multitude (nation; ethnic group). 8 And all those continually dwelling upon the earth (or: Land) will proceed worshiping it – concerning which folks, their name has not been written within the scroll of (or: which is) "The Life of the little Lamb" – the One having been slaughtered from a casting-down of [the] ordered arrangement (world of culture, religion, government and economics; or: from [the] world's founding). 9 If anyone continues having an ear, let him hear. 10 If anyone (or: a certain one) [is; is destined] into captivity, into captivity he is repeatedly (continuously; presently) departing [Griesbach's text adds sunagei, so would read: If anyone is continuously gathering (bringing together) a captive host, into captivity he is proceeding to undergo]. If anyone (or: a certain one) is continually killing with a sword, it is necessary for him to be killed with a sword. The patient and persistent endurance (or: the steadfast, humble and supportive remaining-under) and the reliability and faith of the set-apart ones (or: trust and loyal confidence of the holy folks) continually exists here. 11 Next I saw another little animal (little creature or beast), progressively stepping up out of the midst of the Land (or: earth), and it had two horns like a little lamb, yet it was, and continued, speaking as [the] dragon, 12 and it is continually exercising (doing, performing, executing) all the authority of the first little animal (or: little wild beast) within its presence (before it; in its sight), and it repeatedly makes the Land (or: forms the earth) and those dwelling in her, to the end that they would (or: may) worship the first little animal (little creature or wild beast) whose death blow was cured (or: treated). 13 And it is continually making (doing; constructing; performing; producing) great signs (wonders; miracles; marks; inscriptions), to the end that it may even repeatedly make (a) fire to continuously (or: repeatedly) descend from out of the atmosphere (or: sky; or: heaven) into the Land (or: earth) within the presence of (in sight of) the people (or: humans). 14 It also continually leads astray (causes to wander; deceives) those [other MSS read: Mine] who are continuously dwelling upon the Land (or: earth), because of the signs which it was (or: is) given to it to perform (or: allowed to do, make or construct) in the presence of (before; in sight of) the [first] little animal (little creature or wild beast). [It is] constantly saying – to those habitually dwelling upon the Land (or: earth) – to make (or: construct) an image (likeness; resemblance; an icon) to (or: for) the little animal (little wild beast) which continuously has the blow (wound; stripe) of the sword, yet lives. 15 And it was given to it (or: allowed for her) to give spirit (breath; a spirit) to the image (or: icon) of the [first] little animal (little wild beast) so that the image (or: icon) of the little animal can both speak and can cause (or: make it; arrange) that whoever would not worship the image of the [first] little animal would (or: should) be killed. 16 And so it is continually making (causing; forming) all (everyone) – the little (small; = insignificant) ones and the great ones, the rich ones and the poor ones, the free ones and the slaves – to the end that they could (would; may; [some MSS: it will] give to them an imprinted mark-effect (an engraved work; emblem; result of sculpting; carve-effect [note: same root from which we get the word "character"]) upon their right hand, or upon their foreheads, 17 even to the end that a certain one would continually be unable (or: not anyone would be continually able) to buy or to sell if [he or she is] not the one continuously having the imprinted mark-effect (engraving; carve-effect) or the name of the little animal, or the number of its name. 18 Here is Wisdom! The one having a mind must calculate (compute by pebbles) the number of the little animal, for it is man's number (or: [the] number of mankind; a number pertaining to humanity; a man's number): his number [is] 666.

Revelation 13:18

18 Here is Wisdom! The one having a mind must calculate (compute by pebbles) the number of the little animal, for it is man's number (or: [the] number of mankind; a number pertaining to humanity; a man's number): his number [is] 666.
