8 Each of the four living creatures has six wings. They are full of eyes around and within. »Never resting day or night, they say: Holy, holy, holy, Jehovah God the Almighty, who was, and who is, and who is to come.«
Bible verses about "revelations" | NSB
1 I saw the Lamb open one of the seven seals. And I heard one of the living creatures speak with a voice like thunder. He said: »Come!« 2 I saw a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him and he conquered. 3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say: »Come!« 4 Another horse that was red went out: and power was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth. He was given a great sword so that men could kill one another. 5 When he opened the third seal I heard the third beast say: »Come!« I saw a black horse; and he who sat on him had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures say: »A measure (quart: U.S. dry). of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see that you do not hurt the oil and the wine.« 7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say: »Come!« 8 I looked, and there was a pale horse. The name of the one who sat on him was Death. The grave followed him. Power was given to them over a fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with pestilence, and with the beasts of the earth. 9 When the Lamb opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the persons who were slaughtered because of the word of God, and for the witness they gave. 10 They cried with a loud voice, saying: »How long, O Lord, holy and true, before you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?« 11 Each of them was given a white robe. They were told that they should rest for a little while. [They were to wait] until the [number] of their fellow servants and their brothers, who would be killed, as they were, should be fulfilled. 12 When he opened the sixth seal I saw a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood. 13 The stars of the sky fell to the earth, even as a fig tree drops her unripe figs when she is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled together. Every mountain and island was moved from their places. 15 The kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the military commanders, and the mighty men, and every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains. 16 They said to the mountains and rocks: »Fall on us, and hide us from the presence of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 »For the great day of his wrath has come; and who will be able to stand?«
1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. There was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 Then I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying: »Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men. He will dwell with them and they will be his people! God will be with them, and be their God. 4 »God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. There will be no more death. There will be no more sorrow nor crying. There will be no more pain! The former things have passed away.« 5 He who sat on the throne said: »Behold, I make all things new. Then he told me to write: for these words are faithful and true.« 6 And he said to me: »It is done! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him who thirsts from the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 »He who overcomes will inherit all things. I will be his God, and he will be my son. 8 »But the fearful and unbelieving, abominable and murderers, fornicators and those practicing spiritism, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur: which is the second death.« 9 One of the seven angels came to me. He had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues. He said: »Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.« 10 He carried me away in spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy city Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. 11 She had the glory of God. Her light was like a very precious stone, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 The city had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written on each gate, the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 He who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city and the gates and the wall. 16 And the city lies foursquare. The length is as large as the width. He measured the city with the reed, fourteen hundred miles. The length and the width and the height of it are equal. 17 He measured the wall, two hundred feet, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 The structure of the wall was jasper: and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, hyacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each individual gate was one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass. 22 I saw no temple there: for the Jehovah God the Almighty and the Lamb are the temple. 23 The city did not need the sun or the moon to shine on it. For the glory of God and of the Lamb was its light. 24 The nations will walk by means of its light. The kings of the earth bring their glory into it. 25 Its gates will not close in the daytime and there will be no night there. 26 They will bring the glory of the nations into it. 27 Nothing impure will ever enter it. The shameful and deceitful will not enter. Only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life will enter.
