启示录 7:1-17

为上帝的仆人盖印

1这些事情之后,我看见四位天使分别站在地的四个角落控制着四面的风,使风不再吹向地面、海洋和树木。 2我又看见一位天使从东方日出之地上来,手里拿着永活上帝的印。他对那领受权柄能伤害地和海的四位天使大声说: 3“我们还没在上帝的奴仆额上盖印之前,你们不可伤害地、海和树木。” 4我听见以色列各支派中盖了印的共有十四万四千人: 5犹大支派有一万二千,吕便支派有一万二千,迦得支派有一万二千, 6亚设支派有一万二千,拿弗他利支派有一万二千,玛拿西支派有一万二千, 7西缅支派有一万二千,利未支派有一万二千,以萨迦支派有一万二千, 8西布伦支派有一万二千,约瑟支派有一万二千,便雅悯支派有一万二千。

劫后余生的上帝子民

9后来我又看见一大群人,多得不可胜数。他们来自各国家、各部落、各民族、各语言族群,身穿白袍,手拿棕树枝,站在宝座和羔羊面前, 10大声呼喊说:“救恩来自我们坐在宝座上的上帝,也来自羔羊!” 11众天使都站在宝座、众长老和四个活物的周围,在宝座前俯伏敬拜上帝,说: 12“阿们!愿颂赞、荣耀、智慧、感谢、尊贵、权柄、能力都归给我们的上帝,直到永永远远。阿们!”

13长老中有一位问我:“这些身穿白袍的人是谁?他们从哪里来?”

14我回答说:“先生,你知道答案。”

他便说:“这些都是经过大灾难的人,他们用羔羊的血将衣裳洗得纯净洁白。 15因此,他们在宝座前,在圣殿中不分昼夜地事奉上帝。坐在宝座上的那位要庇护他们。 16他们不会再受饥饿和干渴的折磨,也不会再受太阳和酷热的煎熬, 17因为在宝座中央的羔羊要做他们的牧人,引导他们到生命之泉那里,上帝要擦干他们所有的眼泪。”

Revelation 7:1-17

1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand. 9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
