9 After this I beheld, and, lo, ma great multitude, which no man could number, nof all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with owhite robes, and ppalms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, qSalvation to our God rwhich sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood sround about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, tAmen: uBlessing, and uglory, and uwisdom, and vthanksgiving, and uhonour, and upower, and umight, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders wanswered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in owhite robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, xSir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of ygreat tribulation, and have zwashed their robes, and omade them white ain the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him bday and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne cshall dwell among them. 16 dThey shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; deneither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne fshall feed them, and gshall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and hGod shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
