CHAPTER SEVEN
7:1After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the eretz, holding the four winds of the eretz, so that no wind would blow on the eretz, or on the sea, or on any tree. 7:2I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise, having the seal of the living God. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the eretz and the sea, 7:3saying, "Don't harm the eretz, neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants of our God on their foreheads!"
Then the LORD called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, "Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it." As I listened, he said to the others, "Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter old men, young men and maidens, women and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary."
Ezekiel 9:3-6
7:4I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Yisra'el:
7:5Of the tribe of Yehudah were sealed twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Re'uven twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,

7:6Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Naftali twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Menashsheh twelve thousand,

7:7Of the tribe of Shim`on twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Yissakhar twelve thousand,

7:8Of the tribe of Zevulun twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Yosef twelve thousand,

 Of the tribe of Binyamin were sealed twelve thousand.

7:9After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.
Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no  rain. If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot. This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot.
Zechariah 14:16-19
7:10They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"
For in those days the Elect One shall arise,
And he shall choose the righteous and holy from among them:
For the day has drawn nigh that they should be saved.

And the Elect One shall in those days sit on My throne,
And his mouth shall pour forth all the secrets of wisdom and counsel:
For the Lord of Spirits hath given (them) to him and hath glorified him.
1 Enoch 52:2-3, Ethiopic Apocalypse

7:11All the angels were standing around the throne, the Zakenim, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne, and worshiped God, 7:12saying, "Ameyn! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our God forever and ever! Ameyn."

7:13One of the Zakenim answered, saying to me, "These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?"

7:14I told him, "My lord, you know."

He said to me, "These are those who came out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes, and made them white in the Lamb's blood. 7:15Therefore they are before the throne of God, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. 7:16They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat; 7:17for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
