Revelation 6:9-11

The 144,000 Killed

Revelation 6:10: “And they" [Those of the 144,000 slain for the word of God] "cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”

Revelation 6:11: “And white robes were given unto every one of them;" [Those of the 144,000 slain for the word of God] "and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren," [The rest of the 144,000] "that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”
