What are these that are arrayed in white robes?
and whence come they?
These are they which come out of great tribulation,
and have washed their robes,
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Therefore are they before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in His temple:
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them
unto living fountains of waters:
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
