After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree.
“Then he said to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, son of man, and tell the wind, Thus says the Lord HaShem: Come from the four winds, breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”
I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise, having the seal of the living God. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea,
saying, Do not harm the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants of our God on their foreheads!
I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel:
of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand, of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.
“Many nations shall join themselves to HaShem in that day, and shall be my people, and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that HaShem of Hosts has sent me to you.”
You shall take on the first day the fruit of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.
They cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!
All the angels were standing around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne, and worshiped God,
saying, Amen! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our God forever and ever! Amen.
One of the elders answered, saying to me, These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?
I told him, My lord, you know. He said to me, These are those who came out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes, and made them white in the Lamb’s blood.
Therefore they are before the throne of God, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tabernacle over them.
“HaShem will create over the whole habitation of Mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy.”
They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat,
“There will be a pavilion for a shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a refuge and for a shelter from storm and from rain.”
for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
“HaShem is my shepherd, I shall lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.”
“He has swallowed up death forever! The Lord HaShem will wipe away tears from off all faces. He will take the reproach of his people away from off all the earth, for HaShem has spoken it.”
