receive his Mark in his forehead, or in his hand; the same mall drink of the wine of the Wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture, into the cup of his Indignation, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy Angels, and in the presence of the Lambt And the smoke of their torment afcended up for ever and ever; and they have no reft day nor night, who worship the Beast and his Image,
