[Revelation 11]

     {Rev 11:1, 3, 9, 11:11, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5; AD 70}

     11:1 And a reed similar to a rod was given to me and one says, Lift yourself up and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who are worshiping in it. 11:2 And the courtyard outside the temple cast away outside {i.e. leave it out} and do not measure it, because it was given to the nations and they will be trampling on the holy city forty-two months.

     11:3 And I will be giving to my two witnesses and they will be prophesying one thousand two hundred and sixty days, having been dressed in sackcloths. {Rev 11:9, 11:11, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5}11:4 These are the two olive-trees and the two lamp-stands, standing in the sight of the Lord of the earth. 11:5 And if anyone wishes to hurt them, fire travels out from their mouth and devours their enemies, and if anyone wishes to hurt them, it is essential for him to thus be killed. 11:6 These have the authority to lock the heaven, in order that no rainfall may rain on the days of their prophecy and they have authority over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of wound, whenever they might will it.

     11:7 And whenever they complete their testimony, the beast which is ascending out of the abyss, will make* war with them and overcome them and kill them. 11:8 And the corpses of themlay in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. 11:9 And some from among the peoples and tribes and languages and nations look upon their corpse three and a half days and they will not allow their corpses to be laid in a tomb. 11:10 And those who are dwelling upon the earth rejoice over them and will be joyous, and they will be giving gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell upon the earth. 11:11 And after the three and a half days the spirit of life from God entered into them and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those who view them. 11:12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven saying to them, Come-up* here. And they went-up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies viewed them. 11:13 And there became a great earthquake in that day and the tenth part of the city fell, and the names of seven thousand men were killed in the earthquake and the rest became fearful and gave glory to the God of heaven.

     11:14 The second woe has gone away. Behold, the third woe is coming shortly.

     11:15 And the seventh messenger sounded, and there became loud voices in heaven saying, The kingdom of the world became the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and he will be reigning forevermore.

     11:16 And the twenty-four elders, who are sitting upon their thrones in the sight of the throne of God, fell upon their faces and worshiped God, 11:17 saying, We give-thanks to you, O Lord God, the Almighty, who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and reigned. 11:18And the nations were angry and your wrath has come and the time of the dead to be judged andthe time to give the reward to your bondservants, the prophets, and to the holy-ones, and to those who fear your name, to the little and to the great, and to have decay for those who are corrupting the earth.

     11:19 And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened, and the ark of the covenant* of the Lord was seen in his temple, and there became lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail.
