Chapter 16
001
I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the earth!"
002
The first went, and poured out her bowl into the earth, and it became a harmful and evil sore on the people who had the mark of the beast, and who worshiped her image.
003
The second angel poured out her bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead woman. Every living thing in the sea died.
004
The third poured out her bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
005
I heard the angel of the waters saying, "You are righteous, who are and who were, you Holy One, because you have judged these things.
006
For they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve this."
007
I heard the altar saying, "Yes, Domina God, the Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments."
008
The fourth poured out her bowl on the sun, and it was given to her to scorch women with fire.
009
People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn't repent and give her glory.
010
The fifth poured out her bowl on the throne of the beast, and her kingdom was darkened. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain,
011
and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn't repent of their works.
012
The sixth poured out her bowl on the great river, the Euphrates. Its water was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the queens that come from the sunrise.
013
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 prophetess, three unclean spirits, something like frogs;
014
for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the queens of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty.
015
"Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is she who watches, and keeps her clothes, so that she doesn't walk naked, and they see her shame."
016
She gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.
017
The seventh poured out her bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
018
There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were women on the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty.
019
The great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to him the cup of the wine of the fierceness of her wrath.
020
Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
021
Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.
