The two witnesses prophesy.
Revelation 11:3 But I wil giue power vnto my two witnesses, and they shall prophecie a thousande two hundreth and threescore dayes, clothed in sackcloth. Revelation 11:4 These are two oliue trees, and two candlestickes, standing before the God of the earth.

The beast shall fight against them, and kill them.
Revelation 11:7 And when they haue finished their testimonie, the beast that commeth out of the bottomlesse pit, shall make warre against them, and shall ouercome them, and kill them.
They lie unburied,
Revelation 11:8 And their corpses shall lie in the streetes of the great citie, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord also was crucified. Revelation 11:9 And they of the people and kinreds, and tongues, and Gentiles shall see their corpses three dayes and an halfe, and shall not suffer their carkeises to be put in graues. Revelation 11:10 And they that dwell vpon the earth, shall reioyce ouer them and be glad, and shall sende giftes one to an other: for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
and after three days and an half rise again.
Revelation 11:11 But after three dayes and an halfe, the spirit of life comming from God, shall enter into them, and they shall stande vp vpon their feete: and great feare shall come vpon them which sawe them. Revelation 11:12 And they shall heare a great voyce from heauen, saying vnto them, Come vp hither; they shall ascend vp to heauen in a cloude, and their enemies shall see them. Revelation 11:13 And the same houre shall there bee a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the citie shall fall, and in the earthquake shalbe slaine in nomber seuen thousande: and the remnant were sore feared, and gaue glorie to the God of heauen.

Revelation 11:16 Then the foure and twentie Elders, which sate before God on their seates, fell vpon their faces, and worshipped God, Revelation 11:17 Saying, We giue thee thankes, Lorde God almightie, Which art, and Which wast, and Which art to come: for thou hast receiued thy great might, and hast obteined thy kingdome. Revelation 11:18 And the Gentiles were angrie, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they shoulde be iudged, and that thou shouldest giue reward vnto thy seruants the Prophets, and to the Saintes, and to them that feare thy Name, to small and great, and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. Revelation 11:19 Then the Temple of God was opened in heauen, and there was seene in his Temple the Arke of his couenant: and there were lightnings, and voyces, and thundrings, and earthquake, and much haile.
