After this I saw a great multitude, which no one could number, of all nations, and tribes, and people, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in presence of the lamb, clothed in white robes, and with palms in their hands : and they cried out with a loud voice, saying: Salvation to our God that sitteth on the throne, and to the lamb. And all the Angels stood round about the throne, and about the Elders and the four living creatures, and they fell before the throne on their faces, and adored God, saying : Amen. Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, honor, power, and strength be to our God, for ever and

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible body must put on incorruption, and this mortal body put on immortality. And when this mortal body shaji have put on immortality, then shall the saying be fulfilled, that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory? O grave, where is thy victory? Where is thy sting, O death? Now the sting of death is sin : and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

to have life in himself; and he hath given him power to execute judgment, because he is the son of man. Wonder not at this; for the hour cometh, when all that are in their graves, shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and shall come forth, they that have done good, to the resurrection of life : and they that have done evil, to the resurrection of damnation.
