“And one of the Elders answered, saying vnto mee, What are these which are arayed in white robes? and whence came they?”
King James Version (KJV)
10. And cryed with a loude voice, saying, Saluation to our God, which sitteth vpon the Throne, and vnto the Lambe. 11. And all the Angels stood round about the Throne, and about the Elders, and the foure beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glorie, and wisedome, and thankesgiuing, and honour, & power, and might be vnto our God for euer & euer, Amen. 13. And one of the Elders answered, saying vnto mee, What are these which are arayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14. And I said vnto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and haue washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lambe. 15. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serue him day and night in his Temple: and hee that sitteth on the Throne shal dwell among them. 16. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the Sunne light on them, nor any heate.
