Bible: Rev 19:1-8

19:1 After these things I heard what sounded like the loud voice of a vast throng in heaven, saying,

Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,

19:2 because his judgments are true and just. 1 

For he has judged 2  the great prostitute

who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality,

and has avenged the blood of his servants 3  poured out by her own hands! 4 

19:3 Then 5  a second time the crowd shouted, “Hallelujah!” The smoke rises from her forever and ever. 6  19:4 The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures threw themselves to the ground 7  and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne, saying: “Amen! Hallelujah!

19:5 Then 8  a voice came from the throne, saying:

“Praise our God

all you his servants,

and all you who fear Him,

both the small and the great!

The Wedding Celebration of the Lamb

19:6 Then 9  I heard what sounded like the voice of a vast throng, like the roar of many waters and like loud crashes of thunder. They were shouting: 10 

“Hallelujah!

For the Lord our God, 11  the All-Powerful, 12  reigns!

19:7 Let us rejoice 13  and exult

and give him glory,

because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come,

and his bride has made herself ready.

19:8 She was permitted to be dressed in bright, clean, fine linen 14  (for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints). 15
