Revelation 11:2

11:2 But 1  do not measure the outer courtyard 2  of the temple; leave it out, 3  because it has been given to the Gentiles, 4  and they will trample on the holy city 5  for forty-two months.

Revelation 11:6

11:6 These two have the power 6  to close up the sky so that it does not rain during the time 7  they are prophesying. They 8  have power 9  to turn the waters to blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague whenever they want.
