20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven,
having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in
20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand
20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up,
and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations
no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and
after that he must be loosed a little season.
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them
that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the
word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither
his image, neither had received his mark upon their
foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned
with Christ a thousand years.
20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the
thousand years were finished. This is the first
20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first
resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but
they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign
with him a thousand years.
The Judgment of Satan
20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall
be loosed out of his prison,
20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in
the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather
them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand
of the sea.
20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and
compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved
city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and
20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false
prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever
The Judgment of the Dead
20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on
it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and
there was found no place for them.
20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of
those things which were written in the books, according to
20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and
death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and
they were judged every man according to their works.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.
