Then I saw t thrones, and u seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw v the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those w who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. x They came to life and y reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
