Revelation 19:11–21 ESV “19:11 ¶ Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.
19:12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself.
19:13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.
19:14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.
19:15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.
19:16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
19:17 ¶ Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God,
19:18 to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.”
19:19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who was sitting on the horse and against his army.
19:20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
19:21 And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.”

7:14 I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men,
7:15 but my steadfast love will not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you.
7:16 And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.’””
