Then the voice that I had heard from heaven1 spoke to me once more: "Go, take the scroll2 that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."
So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, "Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey."310
I took the little scroll from the angel's hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth,4 but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.
Then I was told, "You must prophesy5 again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings."6
