The Lamb standing on mount Sion with his company.
Revelation 14:1 And I loked, and lo, a lambe stoode on the mount Sion, and with hym an hundreth fourtie and foure thousande, hauyng his fathers name written in their foreheades. Revelation 14:2 And I hearde a voyce from heauen, as the sounde of many waters, and as the voyce of a great thunder: And I hearde the voyce of harpers harpyng with their harpes: Revelation 14:3 And they song as it were a newe song before the throne, and before the foure beastes, & the elders, and no man coulde learne that song, but the hundreth and fourtie & foure thousande, which were redeemed from the earth. Revelation 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with wome, for they are virgins: These folowe the lambe whither soeuer he goeth: These were redeemed fro men, beyng the first fruites vnto God, and to the lambe. Revelation 14:5 And in their mouthes was founde no guile: For they are without spot before the throne of God.
An angel preacheth the Gospel.
Revelation 14:6 And I sawe another angell flee in the middes of heauen, hauyng the euerlastyng Gospell, to preache vnto them that sit and dwel on the earth, and to all nations, and kinredes, and tongues, and people, Revelation 14:7 Saying with a loude voyce: Feare God, and geue honour to hym, for the houre of his iudgement is come: and worshippe hym that made heauen and earth, and the sea, and fountaynes of water.

Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth vp euermore: And they haue no rest day nor nyght which worship the beast and his image, and whosoeuer receaueth the prynt of his name. Revelation 14:12 Here is the pacience of the saintes: Here are they that kepe the commaundementes of God, and the fayth of Iesus.

Euen so sayth the spirite, that they rest from their laboures, and their workes folowe them. Revelation 14:14 And I loked, and beholde a whyte cloude, and vpon the cloude one sittyng lyke vnto the sonne of man, hauyng on his head a golden crowne, and in his hande a sharpe sickle.

Revelation 14:15 And another angell came out of the temple, crying with a loude voyce to hym that sate on the cloude: Thrust in thy sickle & reape, for the time is come to reape: for the haruest of ye earth is ripe. Revelation 14:16 And he that sate on the cloude thrust in his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. Revelation 14:17 And another angell came out of the temple which is in heauen, hauyng also a sharpe sickle. Revelation 14:18 And I sawe another angell came out from the aulter, which had power ouer fyre, and cryed with a loude crye to hym that had the sharpe sickle, and sayde: Thrust in thy sharpe sickle, and gather the clusters of the vineyarde of ye earth, for her grapes are ripe. Revelation 14:19 And the angell thrust in his sharpe sickle on the earth, and cut downe the grapes of the vineyarde of the earth, and cast them into the great wynefat of the wrath of God.
