Revelation 7:5-8
 
Revelation 7:5-8
Rev 7:5 (KJV)
Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
Rev 7:6 (KJV)
Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
Rev 7:7 (KJV)
Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
Rev 7:8 (KJV)
Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
 
The same word is omitted completely in some of the modern versions. That word is “sealed” which is used twelve times in this listing. It is used once before the “twelve thousand” in all four verses, three times in each verse. I am going to list the versions and next to the name of the version, I will list which ones are included with their corresponding tribe and which ones are missing.
