15 - A Scene of Heaven
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven
angels who had seven plagues, which are the last, because in them
the wrath of God is finished.
2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and
those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and
the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding
harps of God.
3 And they sang the song of Moses, the bond-servant of God, and
the song of the Lamb, saying,
"Great and marvelous are Your works,
O Lord God, the Almighty;
Righteous and true are Your ways,
King of the nations!
4 "Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are holy;
For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU,
FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED."
5 After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle
of testimony in heaven was opened,
6 and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the
temple, clothed in linen, clean and bright, and girded around
their chests with golden sashes.
7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels
seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and
from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until
the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
16 - Six Bowls of Wrath
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven
angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of
the wrath of God."
2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth;
and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who
had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
3 The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became
blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea
4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and
the springs of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying, "Righteous
are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged
for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You
have given them blood to drink. They deserve it."
7 And I heard the altar saying, "Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty,
true and righteous are Your judgments."
8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was
given to it to scorch men with fire.
Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the
name of God who has the power over these plagues, and they did
not repent so as to give Him glory.
10 Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of
the beast, and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed
their tongues because of pain,
11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains
and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the
Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would
be prepared for the kings from the east.
And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the
mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet,
three unclean spirits like frogs;
14 for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go
out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together
for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
15 ("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one
who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk
about naked and men will not see his shame.")
16 And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew
is called Har-Magedon.
Seventh Bowl of Wrath
Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and
a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying,
"It is done."
18 And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals
of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there
had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an
earthquake was it, and so mighty.
19 The great city was split into three parts, and the cities
of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before
God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came
down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of
the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.
