And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God (El Chai); and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, “Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God (Elohim) in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them who were sealed; and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Yisrael.
5 Of the tribe of A19Judah (Yehudah) were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A16Reuven were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A22Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
6 Of the tribe of A23Asher were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A21Nepthalim (Naftali) were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A28Manasseh (Menashsheh) were sealed twelve thousand.
7 Of the tribe of A17Shimon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A18Lewi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A24Issachar (Yissaskhar) were sealed twelve thousand.
8 Of the tribe of A25Zabulon (Zevulun) were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A26Joseph (Yosef) were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of A27Benjamin (Binyamin) were sealed twelve thousand.
9 After this I beheld, and, behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God (Elohim) who sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.”
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)),
12 Saying, “So be it (Amen)! Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God (Elohim) forever and ever. So be it (Amen).”
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, “Who are these who are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they?”
14 And I said unto him, “Sir, you knowest.” And he said to me, “These are they who came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and serve Him day and night in His temple; and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. – Isa. 49:10
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” – Isa.49:10; Jer. 2:13; Eze. 34:23; Psa. 23:1–2
