The number of them that were marked with the seal of the living God and clothed in white robes.
1 After these things, I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that they should not blow upon the earth, nor upon the sea, nor on any tree.
Post haec vidi quatuor angelos stantes super quatuor angulos terrae, tenentes quatuor ventos terrae, ne flarent super terram, neque super mare, neque in ullam arborem.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the sign of the living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Et vidi alterum angelum ascendentem ab ortu solis, habentem signum Dei vivi : et clamavit voce magna quatuor angelis, quibus datum est nocere terrae et mari,
3 Saying: Hurt not the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads.
dicens : Nolite nocere terrae, et mari, neque arboribus, quoadusque signemus servos Dei nostri in frontibus eorum.
4 And I heard the number of them that were signed, an hundred forty-four thousand were signed, of every tribe of the children of Israel.
Et audivi numerum signatorum, centum quadraginta quatuor millia signati, ex omni tribu filiorum Israel.
5 Of the tribe of Juda, were twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Ruben, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand signed:
Ex tribu Juda duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Ruben duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Gad duodecim millia signati :
6 Of the tribe of Aser, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Nephthali, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Manasses, twelve thousand signed:
ex tribu Aser duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Nephthali duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Manasse duodecim millia signati :
7 Of the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand signed:
ex tribu Simeon duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Levi duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Issachar duodecim millia signati :
8 Of the tribe of Zabulon, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand signed: Of the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand signed.
ex tribu Zabulon duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Joseph duodecim millia signati : ex tribu Benjamin duodecim millia signati.
9 After this I saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands:
Post haec vidi turbam magnam, quam dinumerare nemo poterat, ex omnibus gentibus, et tribubus, et populis, et linguis : stantes ante thronum, et in conspectu Agni, amicti stolis albis, et palmae in manibus eorum :
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying: Salvation to our God, who sitteth upon the throne, and to the Lamb.
et clamabant voce magna, dicentes : Salus Deo nostro, qui sedet super thronum, et Agno.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and the ancients, and the four living creatures; and they fell down before the throne upon their faces, and adored God,
Et omnes angeli stabant in circuitu throni, et seniorum, et quatuor animalium : et ceciderunt in conspectu throni in facies suas, et adoraverunt Deum,
12 Saying: Amen. Benediction, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, honour, and power, and strength to our God for ever and ever. Amen.
dicentes : Amen. Benedictio, et claritas, et sapientia, et gratiarum actio, honor, et virtus, et fortitudo Deo nostro in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
13 And one of the ancients answered, and said to me: These that are clothed in white robes, who are they? and whence came they?
Et respondit unus de senioribus et dixit mihi : Hi, qui amicti sunt stolis albis, qui sunt? et unde venerunt?
14 And I said to him: My Lord, thou knowest. And he said to me: These are they who are come out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Et dixi illi : Domine mi, tu scis. Et dixit mihi : Hi sunt, qui venerunt de tribulatione magna, et laverunt stolas suas, et dealbaverunt eas in sanguine Agni.
15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in his temple: and he, that sitteth on the throne, shall dwell over them.
Ideo sunt ante thronum Dei, et serviunt ei die ac nocte in templo ejus : et qui sedet in throno, habitabit super illos :
16 They shall no more hunger nor thirst, neither shall the sun fall on them, nor any heat.
non esurient, neque sitient amplius, nec cadet super illos sol, neque ullus aestus :
17 For the Lamb, which is in the midst of the throne, shall rule them, and shall lead them to the fountains of the waters of life, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
quoniam Agnus, qui in medio throni est, reget illos et deducet eos ad vitae fontes aquarum, et absterget Deus omnem lacrimam ab oculis eorum.
