Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, [and] which has been withheld by you, cries out [against you]; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.

6
You have condemned and put to death the righteous [man]; he does not resist you.

13
[He is] clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14
And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white [and] clean, were following Him on white horses.
15
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.

And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."
