26. Here is the standard understanding of the verse, encompasing both 144 and 1000

http://www.usccb.org/bible/revelation/7/

* One hundred and forty-four thousand: the square of twelve (the number of Israel’s tribes) multiplied by a thousand, symbolic of the new Israel (cf. Rev 14:1–5; Gal 6:16; Jas 1:1) that embraces people from every nation, race, people, and tongue (Rev 7).
