Revelation 14:4
Revelation 14:4 (KJV):
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

Revelation 14:4 (RSV):
It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb,

Revelation 14:4 (NIV):
These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb.




NOTES: The purpose of this word study is to determine the meaning of fruitfruits as used for offerings. In the New Testament, the word firstfruits has a different meaning and will not be expanded upon in this study. New Testament verses are included, however, to complete the study.
