Αποκαλύψεις 20

1

Καὶ εἶδον ἄγγελον καταβαίνοντα ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ὅστις εἶχε τὸ κλειδίον τῆς ἀβύσσου καὶ ἅλυσιν μεγάλην ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὑτοῦ.

2

Καὶ ἐπίασε τὸν δράκοντα, τὸν ὄφιν τὸν ἀρχαῖον, ὅστις εἶναι Διάβολος καὶ Σατανᾶς, καὶ ἔδεσεν αὐτὸν χίλια ἔτη,

3

καὶ ἔρριψεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον καὶ ἔκλεισεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐσφράγισεν ἐπάνω αὐτοῦ, διὰ νὰ μή πλανήσῃ τὰ ἔθνη πλέον, ἑωσοῦ πληρωθῶσι τὰ χίλια ἔτη· καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα πρέπει νὰ λυθῇ ὀλίγον καιρόν.

4

Καὶ εἶδον θρόνους, καὶ ἐκάθησαν ἐπ᾿αὐτῶν, καὶ κρίσις ἐδόθη εἰς αὐτοὺς καὶ εἶδον τὰς ψυχὰς τῶν πεπελεκισμένων διὰ τὴν μαρτυρίαν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ καὶ διὰ τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ οἵτινες δὲν προσεκύνησαν τὸ θηρίον οὔτε τὴν εἰκόνα αὐτοῦ, καὶ δὲν ἔλαβον τὸ χάραγμα ἐπὶ τὸ μέτωπον αὑτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν χεῖρα αὑτῶν· καὶ ἔζησαν καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν μετὰ τοῦ Χριστοῦ τὰ χίλια ἔτη.

5

Οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ τῶν νεκρῶν δὲν ἀνέζησαν, ἑωσοῦ πληρωθῶσι τὰ χίλια ἔτη. Αὕτη εἶναι ἡ ἀνάστασις ἡ πρώτη.

6

Μακάριος καὶ ἅγιος, ὅστις ἔχει μέρος εἰς τὴν πρώτην ἀνάστασιν· ἐπὶ τούτων ὁ θάνατος ὁ δεύτερος δὲν ἔχει ἐξουσίαν, ἀλλὰ θέλουσιν εἶσθαι ἱερεῖς τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θέλουσι βασιλεύσει μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ χίλια ἔτη.

7

Καὶ ὅταν πληρωθῶσι τὰ χίλια ἔτη, θέλει λυθῆ ὁ Σατανᾶς ἐκ τῆς φυλακῆς αὑτοῦ,

8

καὶ θέλει ἐξέλθει, διὰ νὰ πλανήσῃ τὰ ἔθνη τὰ εἰς τὰς τέσσαρας γωνίας τῆς γῆς, τὸν Γὼγ καὶ τὸν Μαγώγ, διὰ νὰ συνάξῃ αὐτοὺς εἰς πόλεμον, τῶν ὁποίων ὁ ἀριθμὸς εἶναι ὡς ἡ ἄμμος τῆς θαλάσσης.

9

Καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐπὶ τὸ πλάτος τῆς γῆς καὶ περιεκύκλωσαν τὸ στρατόπεδον τῶν ἁγίων καὶ τὴν πόλιν τὴν ἠγαπημένην· καὶ κατέβη πῦρ ἀπὸ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ κατέφαγεν αὐτούς·

10

καὶ ὁ διάβολος ὁ πλανῶν αὐτοὺς ἐρρίφθη εἰς τὴν λίμνην τοῦ πυρὸς καὶ τοῦ θείου, ὅπου εἶναι τὸ θηρίον καὶ ὁ ψευδοπροφήτης, καὶ θέλουσι βασανίζεσθαι ἡμέραν καὶ νύκτα εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων.

11

Καὶ εἶδον θρόνον λευκὸν μέγαν καὶ τὸν καθήμενον ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῦ, ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ ὁποίου ἔφυγεν ἡ γῆ καὶ ὁ οὐρανός, καὶ δὲν εὑρέθη τόπος δι᾿ αὐτά.

12

Καὶ εἶδον τοὺς νεκρούς, μικροὺς καὶ μεγάλους, ἱσταμένους ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ τὰ βιβλία ἠνοίχθησαν· καὶ βιβλίον ἄλλο ἠνοίχθη, τὸ ὁποῖον εἶναι τῆς ζωῆς· καὶ ἐκρίθησαν οἱ νεκροὶ ἐκ τῶν γεγραμμένων ἐν τοῖς βιβλίοις κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὑτῶν.

13

Καὶ ἔδωκεν ἡ θάλασσα τοὺς ἐν αὐτῇ νεκρούς, καὶ ὁ θάνατος καὶ ὁ δης ἔδωκαν τοὺς ἐν αὑτοῖς νεκρούς, καὶ ἐκρίθησαν ἕκαστος κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὑτῶν.

14

Καὶ ὁ θάνατος καὶ ὁ δης ἐρρίφθησαν εἰς τὴν λίμνην τοῦ πυρός· οὗτος εἶναι ὁ δεύτερος θάνατος.

15

Καὶ ὅστις δὲν εὑρέθη γεγραμμένος ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τῆς ζωῆς, ἐρρίφθη εἰς τὴν λίμνην τοῦ πυρός.
