Then I looked, and on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him were 144,000 who had his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.
I heard a sound from Heaven like the noise of running water and the deep roar of thunder; it was the sound of harpers playing on their harps. There before the throne, and the four living creatures and the elders, they were singing a new song.
That song no one could learn except the 144,000, who alone from the whole world had been ransomed.
These are men who did not defile themselves with women, for they are chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They have been ransomed as the firstfruits of humanity for God and the Lamb. No lie was found on their lips; they are faultless.
