Revelation 11:5-10

Context
11:5 If 1  anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths 2  and completely consumes 3  their enemies. If 4  anyone wants to harm them, they must be killed this way. 11:6 These two have the power 5  to close up the sky so that it does not rain during the time 6  they are prophesying. They 7  have power 8  to turn the waters to blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague whenever they want. 11:7 When 9  they have completed their testimony, the beast that comes up from the abyss will make war on them and conquer 10  them and kill them. 11:8 Their 11  corpses will lie in the street 12  of the great city that is symbolically 13  called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also crucified. 11:9 For three and a half days those from every 14  people, tribe, 15  nation, and language will look at their corpses, because they will not permit them to be placed in a tomb. 16  11:10 And those who live on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate, even sending gifts to each other, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
