Revelation 7:9-17 CEV
(9) After this, I saw a large crowd with more people than could be counted. They were from every race, tribe, nation, and language, and they stood before the throne and before the Lamb. They wore white robes and held palm branches in their hands, (10) as they shouted, "Our God, who sits upon the throne, has the power to save his people, and so does the Lamb." (11) The angels who stood around the throne knelt in front of it with their faces to the ground. The elders and the four living creatures knelt there with them. Then they all worshiped God (12) and said, "Amen! Praise, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power, and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen!" (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."

Revelation 7:9-17 NWT
9 After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes; and there were palm branches in their hands. 10 And they keep on crying with a loud voice, saying: "Salvation [we owe] to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb." 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell upon their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying: "Amen! The blessing and the glory and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the honor and the power and the strength [be] to our God forever and ever. Amen." 13 And in response one of the elders said to me: "These who are dressed in the white robes, who are they and where did they come from?" 14 So right away I said to him: "My lord, you are the one that knows." And he said to me: "These are the ones that come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16 They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down upon them nor any scorching heat, 17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes."

(9) After these [things] I saw. And look! A large crowd, which no one was being able to number, out of every nation and [from] tribes and people and tongues, having stood before the throne and before the Lamb having been clothed in long, white robes and palm branches in their hands. (10) And they cry out with a loud voice, saying, "The salvation [belongs] to our God, the One sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb!" (11) And all the angels had stood around the throne, and the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell down on their face[s] before throne and prostrated themselves in worship before God, (12) saying, "Amen! The blessing and the glory and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the honor and the power and the strength [belong] to our God into the ages of the ages [fig., forever and ever]! So be it!" (13) And one of the elders answered, saying to me, "These, the ones having been clothed with the long, white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?" (14) And I said to him, "My Lord, _you_ know." And he said to me, "These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation, and they washed their long robes and made white in the blood of the Lamb. (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.
