Revelation 14:1

The Lamb (to arnion). See Revelation 5:6; Revelation 7:17; Revelation 12:11; Revelation 13:8 and is in contrast with the anarthrous arnion in Revelation 13:11. This proleptic vision of the Lamb "standing on the mount Zion" (estov epi to orov Siwn, second perfect active participle neuter of isthmi with epi and accusative) is reasoning after the visions of the two beasts. Mount Zion is the site of the new city of God (Hebrews 12:22), the Jerusalem above (Galatians 4:26), the seat of the Messianic Kingdom whether heaven or the new earth (Rev. 21; 22). These victors have the name of the Lamb and God upon their foreheads as in Revelation 3:12; Revelation 22:4, in place of the mark of the beast above (Revelation 13:16; Revelation 14:11). This seal protects them (Revelation 9:4).

A hundred and forty and four thousand (ekaton tesserakonta tessarev xiliadev). "Thousands" literally (xiliav feminine word for a thousand and so exousai feminine plural). For the 144,000 see Revelation 7:5, Revelation 7:8, though some scholars seek a distinction somehow.
