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 20:13 The 5 sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death 6 and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was judged according to his deeds.
