Revelation 11:15-17

Context
The Seventh Trumpet

11:15 Then 1  the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying:

“The kingdom of the world

has become the kingdom of our Lord

and of his Christ, 2 

and he will reign for ever and ever.”

11:16 Then 3  the twenty-four elders who are seated on their thrones before God threw themselves down with their faces to the ground 4  and worshiped God 11:17 with these words: 5 

“We give you thanks, Lord God, the All-Powerful, 6 

the one who is and who was,

because you have taken your great power

and begun to reign. 7
