9: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

14: And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
 
15: And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
 
16: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
 
17: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

1:And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
 
2: And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
 
3: Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
 
4: And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

10: And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
 
11: And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
 
12: Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
 
13: And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
 
14: And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
 
15: Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
 
16: They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
 
17: For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Proverbs Chapter Twenty Six

1:As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.
 
2: As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
 
3: A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.
 
4: Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
 
5: Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
 
6: He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.
 
7: The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
 
8: As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.
 
9: As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
 
10: The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
 
11: As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
 
12: Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
 
13: The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.
 
14: As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.
 
15: The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
 
16: The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
 
17: He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
 
18: As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
 
19: So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
 
20: Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
 
21: As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.
 
22: The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
 
23: Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross.
 
24: He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
 
25: When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
 
26: Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.
 
27: Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
 
28: A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
