The structure of Revelation 14:1–5

Revelation 14:1–5 (ESV)

1 Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

This brief paragraph can be divided into two sections, with the first section describing what John saw ( Revelation 14:1) and the second part describing what John heard (vv. Revelation 14:2–5). Within the section on what John heard there are again two parts: first the singers of heaven (Revelation 14:2–3), then the singers on earth (Revelation 14:3, Revelation 14:4–5).
