Unchecked Copy BoxRev 11:11 - But after the three and a half days the breath[fn] of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 11:12 - Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
