Then 1 I saw something like a sea of glass 2 mixed with fire, and those who had conquered 3 the beast and his image and the number of his name. They were standing 4 by 5 the sea of glass, holding harps given to them by God. 6
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Then 1 books were opened, and another book was opened – the book of life. 2 So 3 the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds. 4
Then 1 I saw thrones and seated on them were those who had been given authority to judge. 2 I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. These 3 had not worshiped the beast or his image and had refused to receive his mark on their forehead or hand. They 4 came to life 5 and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
