4Then I saw some thrones and people sitting on them. These were the people who had been given the power to judge. And I saw the souls of those people who had been killed because ˻they were faithful to˼ the truth of Jesus and the message from God. Those people did not worship the animal or his idol. They did not receive the mark of the animal on their foreheads or on their hands. Those people became alive again and ruled with Christ for 1,000 years.
