2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are*, and the earth, and the things that therein are*, and the sea, and the things which are therein*, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound*, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
