New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, surrounded by a cloud, with a rainbow over his head. His face shone like the sun, and his feet were like pillars of fire. 1 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars.
2 And in his hand was a small scroll, which he had unrolled. He stood with his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land. 2 He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,
3 And he gave a great shout, like the roar of a lion. And when he shouted, the seven thunders answered. 3 and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke.
4 When the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write. But a voice from heaven called to me: "Keep secret what the seven thunders said. Do not write it down." 4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down."
5 Then the mighty angel standing on the sea and on the land lifted his right hand to heaven. 5 Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven.
6 And he swore an oath in the name of the one who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and everything in it, the earth and everything in it, and the sea and everything in it. He said, "God will wait no longer. 6 And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, "There will be no more delay!
7 But when the seventh angel blows his trumpet, God's mysterious plan will be fulfilled. It will happen just as he announced it to his servants the prophets." 7 But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets."
8 Then the voice from heaven called to me again: "Go and take the unrolled scroll from the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land." 8 Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: "Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."
9 So I approached him and asked him to give me the little scroll. "Yes, take it and eat it," he said. "At first it will taste like honey, but when you swallow it, it will make your stomach sour!" 9 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."
10 So I took the little scroll from the hands of the angel, and I ate it! It was sweet in my mouth, but it made my stomach sour. 10 I took the little scroll from the angel's hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.
11 Then he said to me, "You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings." 11 Then I was told, "You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings."
