启示录 19

天上的赞美

1这事以后,我听见天上好像有一大群人在呼喊:“哈利路亚[a]!救赎、荣耀和权能都归于我们的上帝! 因为祂的审判真实公义,祂惩罚了那用淫乱败坏世界的大淫妇,为那些被她杀害的奴仆申冤。” 他们又欢呼说:“哈利路亚!焚烧大淫妇的烟不断上腾,直到永永远远。” 那二十四位长老和四个活物也俯伏敬拜坐在宝座上的上帝,说:“阿们!哈利路亚!”

这时从宝座那里发出声音,说:“上帝所有的奴仆和一切敬畏祂的人,无论尊卑老少,都要赞美我们的上帝!” 我听见有声音好像一大群人的呼喊声,又像洪涛,也像雷鸣,说:“哈利路亚!因为我们的主——全能的上帝已经执掌王权了。 我们应当欢喜快乐,归荣耀给祂,因为羔羊的婚期到了,祂的新娘已预备妥当, 获准穿上光亮洁白的细麻衣。”这细麻衣代表圣徒的义行。

天使吩咐我说:“你要写下来,被邀请参加羔羊婚宴的人有福了!”他又说:“这是上帝亲口说的,千真万确。” 10 我俯伏在他脚前要拜他,他却说:“千万不可!我和你并那些为耶稣做见证的弟兄姊妹同是上帝的奴仆。你要敬拜上帝,因为预言的真谛就是为耶稣做见证。”

白马骑士

11 我看见天开了,有一匹白马出来,马上的骑士名叫“诚信真实”,祂凭公义审判、作战。 12 祂的双目如火焰,头上戴了许多冠冕,写着一个只有祂自己才明白的名字。 13 祂穿着被鲜血浸透的衣服,祂的名字是“上帝的道”。 14 众天军穿着洁白的细麻衣,骑着白马跟随祂。 15 祂口中吐出一把利剑,可以攻击列国。祂必用铁杖统治他们,踩踏盛满全能上帝之烈怒的榨酒池。 16 祂的衣服和大腿上都写着祂的名号:“万王之王,万主之主。”

17 我又看见一位天使站在太阳里,对空中飞翔的鸟大声呼唤: 18 “来吧!一起来参加上帝的盛宴,一同享用君王、将军、勇士、马匹、骑士、自由人、奴隶和尊卑老少的肉吧!”

19 我看见那怪兽、地上的众王及其军队聚集起来,要与白马骑士和祂的军队作战。 20 后来,怪兽被俘虏了,在怪兽面前行奇迹的假先知也一同被擒了。这假先知曾用奇迹欺骗那些盖了兽印、敬拜兽像的人。他和怪兽一同被活活地扔进硫磺火湖里。 21 怪兽的残兵纷纷被白马骑士口中的利剑所杀,飞鸟饱餐了他们的肉。

Revelation 19

Threefold Hallelujah Over Babylon’s Fall

1After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:

“Hallelujah!
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
    for true and just are his judgments.
He has condemned the great prostitute
    who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”

And again they shouted:

“Hallelujah!
The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”

The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:

“Amen, Hallelujah!”

Then a voice came from the throne, saying:

“Praise our God,
    all you his servants,
you who fear him,
    both great and small!”

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

“Hallelujah!
    For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
    was given her to wear.”

(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)

Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

10 At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”

The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast

11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”[a] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

king of kings and lord of lords.

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.”

19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
