King James Version

Revelation 19

1And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have 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 he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

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

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Nádej pre kazdého

Zjavenie Apoštola Jána 19

Pieseň víťazstva

1 Potom som počul mocný hlas akoby obrovského zástupu na nebi:

Haleluja!

Spasenie, sláva i moc patria nášmu Bohu,

lebo správne a spravodlivé sú jeho súdy!

Veď odsúdil tú veľkú neviestku,

ktorá priviedla zem do záhuby svojím smilstvom,

spravodlivo ju potrestal

za krv svojich služobníkov,

ktorá lipne na jej rukách!"

A znova spievali:

Haleluja!

Na večné veky bude stúpať dym

z tohto horiaceho mesta."

Tu tých dvadsaťštyri starcov spolu so štyrmi bytosťami padlo na kolená; klaňali sa Bohu, ktorý sedí na tróne, a volali: Amen! Haleluja!"

A od trónu zaznel hlas:

Chváľte nášho Boha

všetci, čo mu slúžite

a čo sa ho bojíte,

či veľkí alebo malí!"

Pozvanie na Baránkovu svadbu

A počul som spev akoby obrovského zástupu, mohutný ako hukot vôd alebo ako dunenie hromu:

Haleluja!

Ujal sa vlády Pán, Boh náš všemohúci!

Radujme sa, jasajme a vzdávajme mu slávu,

lebo nadišla svadba Baránkova

a jeho nevesta sa pripravila.

Dostala bieloskvúce šaty zo žiarivého kmentu,

aby sa nimi odiala."

Týmto kmentom sú spravodlivé skutky veriacich.

Tu mi povedal anjel: Napíš to: Šťastní sú tí, čo sú pozvaní na Baránkovu svadbu." A potom ešte doložil: Toto sú slová samého Boha."

10 Padol som mu k nohám, aby som sa mu hlboko poklonil. Ale on mi povedal: Nerob to! Som predsa služobník ako ty a tvoji bratia, ktorí majú Ježišovo svedectvo. Bohu sa klaňaj!"

Víťaz na bielom koni

11 Vtedy sa pred mojimi očami otvorili nebesia a videl som bieleho koňa. Sedel na ňom ten, ktorý sa volá Verný a Pravdivý. To je ten, ktorý vynáša spravodlivé rozsudky a spravodlivo aj bojuje.

12 Oči mu žiarili ako plameň ohňa a na hlave sa mu skvelo množstvo kráľovských diadémov. Má napísané meno a len on sám vie, čo znamená.

13 Jeho odev bol postriekaný krvou a jeho meno je Božie slovo.

14 Za ním išlo nebeské vojsko na bielych koňoch. Všetci boli oblečení do čistého bieloskvúceho kmentu.

15 Z úst mu vychádza ostrý meč, aby ním bil národy. Bude nad nimi vládnuť železnou rukou. On sám bude šliapať lis trestajúceho hnevu všemohúceho Boha.

16 Na plášti a na boku má napísané meno: Kráľ kráľov a Pán pánov.

Víťazstvo nad šelmou a Antikristom

17 Tu som videl anjela ožiareného slnečným jasom. Mocným hlasom volal na všetky vtáky letiace prostriedkom neba: Poďte, zlietnite sa na veľkú Božiu hostinu!

18 Budete sa sýtiť telami kráľov a vojvodcov, bojovníkov, koní i jazdcov, telami všetkých, slobodných aj otrokov, slabých aj mocných."

19 Potom som videl dravú šelmu i kráľov zeme a ich zhromaždené vojská, aby vyrazili do boja proti jazdcovi a jeho vojsku.

20 Ale šelmu zajali a s ňou aj falošného proroka, ktorý z jej poverenia robil veľké zázraky. Nimi zvádzal všetkých, čo prijali znamenie šelmy a klaňali sa jej soche. Oboch hodili za živa do ohnivého jazera horiacej síry.

21 Ostatní boli pobití mečom vychádzajúcim z úst jazdca. A všetky vtáky sa dosýta nažrali ich mäsa.
