Revelations 14: 1-5

14:1And I saw, and behold, the Lamb was standing above mount Zion, and with him were one hundred and forty-four thousand, having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.
14:2And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of a great thunder. And the voice that I heard was like that of singers, while playing on their stringed instruments.
14:3And they were singing what seemed like a new canticle before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one was able to recite the canticle, except those one hundred and forty-four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth.
14:4These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are Virgins. These follow the Lamb wherever he will go. These were redeemed from men as the first-fruits for God and for the Lamb.
14:5And in their mouth, no lie was found, for they are without flaw before the throne of God.

Luke 21: 1- 4

21:1And looking around, he saw the wealthy putting their donations into the offertory.
21:2Then he also saw a certain widow, a pauper, putting in two small brass coins.
21:3And he said: “Truly, I say to you, that this poor widow has put in more than all the others.
21:4For all these, out of their abundance, have added to the gifts for God. But she, out of what she needed, has put in all that she had to live on.”
