Rev 7, Aramaic in Plain English
1And after this, I saw four Angels standing over the four corners of The Earth and holding the four winds, that the winds would not blow on The Earth, neither on the Sea, neither on any tree. 2And I saw another Angel ascending from the dawning of the Sun and having the seal of THE LIVING GOD, and he cried with a loud voice to the four Angels to whom it was given to harm The Earth and the Sea, 3And he said, “Do not harm the land, neither the Sea, nor the trees, until we seal the Servants of God on their foreheads.”
4And I heard the number who were sealed – one hundred and forty four thousand, from all the tribes of Israel:
5From the tribe of Yehuda, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Reuben*, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Gad, twelve thousand; 6From the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Menashe, twelve thousand; 7From the tribe of Shimeon, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Issachar, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand; 8From the tribe of Zebulon, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand; from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand sealed.
9After this I saw many multitudes which were impossible to count, which were of all people, generations, nations* and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, and wearing white garments and with palms in their hands. 10And they shouted with a great voice, and they were saying, “Salvation to our God, and to him Who sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb!”* 11And all of the Angels were standing around the throne and The Elders and The Four Beasts, and they fell before the throne on their faces, 12Saying, “Amen! Glory and blessing and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength to our God for the eternity of eternities! Amen!”
13And one of The Elders responded and he said to me, “Who are these wearing white garments and from where have they come?” 14And I said to him, “My Lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are those who came from great suffering and they have purified their garments and whitened them in the blood of The Lamb.” 15“Because of this, they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in the Temple and he who sits on the throne will dwell with them.” 16“They will not hunger, neither will they thirst, and the Sun will not assail them, neither any heat.” 17“Because The Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and will lead them unto Life* and beside fountains of water, and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
1“Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God and believe in me.” * 2“There are many lodgings in my Father’s house, and if not, I would have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you.” 3“And if I go prepare a place for you, I shall come again and bring you to join me, that where I am you shall be also.” 4“And where I am going, you know, and you know the way.”
5Thoma said to him, “Our Lord, we do not know where you are going and how can we know the way?” 6Yeshua said to him, “I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Way and The Truth and The Life; no man comes to my Father but by me alone.”
7“If you had known me, you also would have known my Father, and from this hour you do know him and you have seen him.”
8Philippus said to him, “Our Lord, show us The Father, and it is sufficient for us.” 9Yeshua said to him, “All this time I am with you and you have not known me Phillip? Whoever has seen me has seen The Father, and how do you say, ‘Show us The Father’?” 10* “Do you not believe that I am in my Father and my Father in me? The words which I am speaking, I am not speaking from myself, but my Father who dwells within me, he does these works.”11“Believe that I am in my Father and my Father in me, otherwise believe because of the works.” 12“Timeless truth, I tell you: ‘whoever believes in me, those works which I have done he will also do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the presence of my Father.’ ” 13“And anything that you will ask in my name I shall do for you, that The Father may be glorified in his Son.” 14“And if you will ask me in my name, I shall do this.”
15“If you love me, keep my commandments.”
16“And I shall request from my Father and he will give you another Redeemer of the accursed*, that he will be with you for eternity.” 17“He is The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it has neither seen him nor known him; but you know him, for he dwells with you and he is in you.”
18“I shall not leave you as orphans, for I shall come to you in a little while.” 19“And the world will not see me, but you shall see me; because I live, you also shall live.” 20At that day, you will know that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you.” 21“Whoever has my commands and keeps them, he does love me, but he who loves me shall be loved from my Father and I shall love him, and I shall show myself to him.” 22Yehuda said to him (he was not Scariota), “My Lord, how is it you are going to show yourself to us and not the same to the world?” 23Yeshua answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me keeps my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and we will make our lodging with him.” 24“But he who does not love me does not keep my word, and this word which you are hearing is not mine, but The Father’s who has sent me.”
25“I have spoken these things with you while I am with you.” 26“But he, The Redeemer of the accursed, The Spirit of Holiness, whom my Father sends in my name, he will teach you all things and he will remind you of everything whatsoever I have told you.”
27“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. It is not as the world gives that I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not let it be afraid.” 28“You have heard that I said to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you’; if you had loved me, you would have rejoiced that I am going to join my Father, for my Father is greater than I.” 29“And now, behold, I have told you before it happens, that when it has happened, you may believe.”30“After this I will not be speaking much with you, for The Prince of the world is coming and he has nothing to use against me*. 31But that the world may know that I love my Father, and just as my Father has taught me, so I have done. Rise up, let us depart from here.”
Father and son are one, and by believing in the son, the disciples become as one substance with the father.
