Revelation 14:4 (ESV)

4 It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb,

John gives us four descriptive phrases that show us characteristics of these learners. They

Each descriptor has an additional phrase to clarify: regarding 1., they are virgins; 2., where he goes; 3., firstfruits; 4., they are blameless.
