A Great Multitude from Every Nation
After these things I looked, and behold, h a great multitude which no one could number, i of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, j clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
and crying out with a loud voice, saying, k "Salvation belongs to our God l who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"
m All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and n worshiped God,
"Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in p white robes, and where did they come from?"
And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, q "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and r washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
"Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will s dwell among them.
t "They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; u the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;
"for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne v will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. w And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
