Revelation 14:3-5 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste;[a][b] it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are spotless.

  1. Revelation 14:4 Greek virgins
  2. 14.4 Although tradition tends to take this literally, the context and Old Testament metaphor suggest that it means they have kept free from idolatry.
