Revelation 7:13-17 CEV
(13) One of the elders asked me, "Do you know who these people are that are dressed in white robes? Do you know where they come from?" (14) "Sir," I answered, "you must know." Then he told me: "These are the ones who have gone through the great suffering. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and have made them white. (15) And so they stand before the throne of God and worship him in his temple day and night. The one who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. (16) They will never hunger or thirst again, and they won't be troubled by the sun or any scorching heat. (17) The Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to streams of life-giving water, and God will wipe all tears from their eyes."

(15) "For this reason they are before the throne of God, and they sacredly serve Him day and night in His Temple. And the One sitting on the throne will spread [His] tabernacle over [fig., will shelter] them. (16) "They will not hunger [any] longer, nor by any means will they thirst [any] longer, nor will the sun fall [fig., beat down] on them, nor any heat.

(13) And one of the rulers made answer, saying to me, These who have on white robes, who are they, and where did they come from? (14) And I said to him, My lord, you have knowledge. And he said to me, These are they who came through the great testing, and their robes have been washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb. (15) This is why they are before the high seat of God; and they are his servants day and night in his house: and he who is seated on the high seat will be a tent over them. (16) They will never be in need of food or drink: and they will never again be troubled by the burning heat of the sun: (17) For the Lamb who is on the high seat will be their keeper and their guide to fountains of living water: and God will make glad their eyes for ever.
