THE MYSTERIE OF THE TWO WITNESSES UNVAILED.
And there was given me a reed like unto a rod, and the Angel stood, saying, Arise, and measure the Temple of God, and the Altar, and them that worship there∣in.
VERS. 2. But the Court which is without the Temple, leave out, and measure it not: for it is given unto the Gen∣tiles, and the holy Citie shall they tread underfoot fortie and two moneths.
Vers. 3. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesie a thousand two hundred and threescore dayes, clothed in sackcloth.
VERS. 4. Those are the two Olive trees, and the two Candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
VERS. 5. And if any man hurt them, fire pro∣ceedeth out of their mouth, and de∣voureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
VERS. 6. These have power to shut Heaven, that it raine not in the dayes of their Prophesie: and have power over the waters, to turne them into blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues as often as they will.
VERS. 7. And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomlesse pit, shall make warre against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
VERS. 8. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great Citie, which spi∣ritually is called Sodome and E∣gypt, where also our Lord was cru∣cified.
VERS. 9. And they of the people, & kindreds, and tongues, and nations, shall see their dead bodies three dayes and a halfe, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
VERS. 10. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoyce over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another, because these two Pro∣phets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
VERS. 11. And after three dayes and a halfe, the spirit of life from God entred into them: and they stood upon their feet, and great feare fell up∣on them that saw them.
VERS. 12. And they heard a great voyce from heaven, saying unto them, come up hither, and they ascended up to heaven in a cloud, and their ene∣mies beheld.
VERS. 13. And the same hour was there a great earth-quake, and the tenth part of the Citie fell, and in the Earth∣quake were slaine of men seven thousand, and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heave.
VERS. 14. The second woe is past, and behold the third woe cometh quickly.
VERS. 15. And the seventh Angell sounded, and there were great voyces in heaven, saying, the kingdomes of this world are become the king∣domes of our Lord, and of his Christ, and hee shall raigne for ever and ever.
VERS. 16. And the foure and twenty Elders which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God.
VERS. 17.—We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty: which art, and wast, and art to come, because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
VERS. 18. And the Nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give re∣ward unto thy servants the Pro∣phets, and to the Saints, and them that feare thy Name, small and great, and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
VERS. 19. And the Temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in the Temple the Arke of his Testament, and there was lightnings, and voy∣ces, and thunderings, & an earth∣quake, and great hail.
