Revelation 11:3–14 follows on the heels of a brief assertion that the Gentiles will possess the temple’s outer court and trample Jerusalem for forty-two months. We learn also that God will authorize two witnesses to prophesy during those forty-two months. Here we gain information about the two witnesses’ ministry, what happens to them, and God’s immediate response. The passage ends by alerting us to the fact that the second woe has ended, but the third woe is coming soon.
