Rev. 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having
 the key of the bottomless pit [the abyss] and
 a great chain in his hand.
 he laid hold on the dragon,
[a.] that old serpent [the serpent of old],
[b.] which is the Devil, and
[c.] Satan, and
[11.] bound him a thousand years,
 [he] cast him into the bottomless pit [the abyss], and
[a.] shut him up, and
[b.] set a seal upon him, that
[11.] he should deceive the nations no more,
[aa.] till [until] the thousand years should be fulfilled: and
[bb.] after that [literally, after these things] he must be loosed a little season.
20:4 And I saw
 thrones, and
 they sat upon them, and
[a.] judgment was given unto them: and
 the souls of them that were beheaded
[a.] for the witness of Jesus, and
[b.] for the word of God, and
[c.] which had not
[11.] worshipped the beast,
[12.] neither [worshipped] his image,
[13.] neither had received [his] mark
[aa.] upon their foreheads, or
[bb.] in their hands; and
[d.] they lived and
[e.] [they] reigned
[11.] with Christ [the Anointed One]
[12.] a thousand years.
20:5 But the rest of the dead [the unsaved dead]
 lived not again [outside of hell]
[a.] until the thousand years were finished.
[11.] This [is] the first resurrection (vs. 4).
 holy [is]
[a.] he that hath part in the first resurrection:
[11.] on such the second death hath no power, but
[b.] they shall be priests
[11.] of God and
[12.] of Christ [the Anointed One], and
[c.] [they] shall reign with him a thousand years.
