1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, "Go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on earth." 2 So the first went off and poured his bowl upon the land; and noisome, painful ulcers broke out on those who bore the mark of the Beast and worshipped his statue.
3 The second poured out his bowl upon the sea; it turned blood like the blood of a corpse, and every living thing within the sea perished.
4 The third poured out his bowl upon the rivers and fountains of water, and they turned blood. 5 Then I heard the angel of the waters cry, "O holy One, who art and wast, just art thou in this thy sentence. 6 They poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink! They deserve it!"
7 And I heard the altar cry, "Even so, Lord God almighty: true and just are thy sentences of doom."
8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and the sun was allowed to scorch men with fire, 9 till men, scorched by the fierce heat, blasphemed the name of the God who had control of these plagues; yet they would not repent and give him glory.
10 The fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the Beast; his realm was darkened, and men gnawed their tongues in anguish, 11 blaspheming the God of heaven for their pains and their ulcers, but refusing to repent of their doings.
12 The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its waters were dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13 Then I saw issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the Beast and from the mouth of the false Prophet, three foul spirits like frogs ??14 demon-spirits performing miracles, who come out to muster the kings of the whole world for battle on the great Day of almighty God.
15 (Lo, I am coming like a thief; blessed be he who keeps awake and holds his raiment fast, not to go naked and have the shame of exposure!)
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl in the air; then came a loud voice out of the temple of heaven from the throne, crying, "All is over!" 18 followed by flashes of lightning, loud blasts, peals of thunder, and a mighty earthquake, the like of which never was since man lived on earth, such a mighty earthquake it was; 19 the great City was shattered in three parts, the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered to give Babylon the great the cup of the wine of the passion of his anger. 20 Every island fled away, the mountains disappeared, 21 and huge hailstones fell from heaven on men, till men blasphemed God for the plague of the hail ??for the plague of it was fearful.
