Old Testament

Revelation 20
The Binding of Satan
201Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven. He had the key to the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, bound him for a thousand years, 3threw him into the abyss, locked it, and set a seal on it, so that he could no longer deceive the nations until the thousand years come to an end. After this he must be released for a short time.
The Saints Live and Reign With Christ
4Then I saw thrones, and those who were sitting on them were given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast and his image, and they did not receive his mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5(The rest of the dead did not live until the thousand years came to an end.) This is the first resurrection.
6Blessed and holy is the one who has a share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them. Instead they will be priests of God and of Christ. And they will reign with him for a thousand years.
The Loosing of Satan
And His Final Defeat
7When the thousand years come to an end, Satan will be released from his prison. 8He will go out to deceive the nations that are in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. They are as numerous as the sand of the sea.
9They came up over the broad expanse of the earth, and they surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of[] heaven and devoured them. 10And the Devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are. There they will be tormented day and night, forever and ever.
The Final Judgment
11Then I saw a great white throne and the one who sat on it. The earth and the sky fled from his presence, and no place was found for them. 12I also saw the dead, great and small, standing in front of the throne, and books were opened. Another book was also opened, which is the Book of Life. The dead were judged by the things written in the books, according to what they had done. 13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and the Grave[] gave up the dead that were in them, and they were judged, each one according to what he had done.
14Death and the Grave[] were thrown into the Lake of Fire. The Lake of Fire is the second death. 15If anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the Lake of Fire.
