1. The End of the World; the Resurrection; the Judgment

11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on [the one sitting upon] it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away [om. away]; and there was found no place [place was not found] for them. 12And I saw the dead, small and great [the great and the small], stand [standing] before God [om. God—ins. the throne]; and the [om. the] books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those [the] things which were [om. which were] written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up [forth] the dead which were in it; and death and hell [hades] delivered up [gave forth] the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man [each] according to their works. 14And death and hell [hades] were cast into the lake of [ins. the] fire. This is the second death [ins., the lake of the fire]. 15And whosoever [if any one] was not found written in the book of life [ins. he] was cast into the lake of [ins. the] fire.
