Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I heard a great voice from heaven, saying to the seven angels, Go ye, and shed out the seven vials of God's wrath into the earth. 1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go, pour out the seven bowls of God's wrath on the earth."
2 And the first angel went, and shedded out his vial into the earth; and a wound fierce and worst was made on all that had the character of the beast [and a wound fierce and worst was made on all that had the character, or mark, of the beast], and on them that worshipped the beast, and his image. 2 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.
3 And the second angel shedded out his vial into the sea, and the blood was made, as of a dead thing; and each man living [and each soul living] was dead in the sea. 3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.
4 And the third angel shedded out his vial on the rivers, and on the wells of waters, [and blood is made]. [And the third angel shedded out his vial upon the floods, and upon the wells of waters, and blood is made.] 4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
5 and said [And I heard the angel of waters, saying], Just art thou, Lord, that art, and that were holy [and that wast holy], that deemest these things; 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: "You are just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you have so judged;
6 for they shedded out the blood of hallows and prophets, and thou hast given to them blood to drink [and thou hast given them blood to drink]; for they be worthy. 6 for they have shed the blood of your saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve."
7 And I heard another [angel] saying, Yea! Lord God almighty, true and just be thy dooms. 7 And I heard the altar respond: "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments."
8 And the fourth angel shedded out his vial into the sun, and it was given to him to torment men with heat and fire. 8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire.
9 And men parched with great heat [And men sweltered with great heat], and blasphemed the name of God having power on [upon] these plagues, neither they did penance, that they should give glory to him. 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
10 And the fifth angel shedded out his vial on the seat of the beast [And the fifth angel shedded out his vial upon the seat of the beast], and his kingdom was made dark; and they ate together their tongues for sorrow, 10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony
11 and they blasphemed God of heaven, for sorrows of their wounds [and they blasphemed God of heaven, for sorrows and their wounds]; and they did not penance of their works. 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
12 And the sixth angel shedded out his vial into that great river Euphrates [into that great flood Euphrates], and dried the water of it, that [the] way were made ready [that the way were readied] to kings from the sun rising. 12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits by the manner of frogs go out of the mouth of the dragon, and of the mouth of the beast, and of the mouth of the false prophet. 13 Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they be spirits of devils, making signs [making signs, or wonders], and they go forth to kings of all earth, to gather them into [a] battle, to the great day of almighty God. 14 They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
15 Lo! I come, as a night thief. Blessed is he that waketh, and keepeth his clothes, that he wander not naked, and that they see not the filthhood of him [and they see his filthhood]. 15 "Behold, I come like a thief ! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed."
16 And he shall gather them into a place [And he gathered them into a place], that is called in Hebrew Armageddon. 16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel shedded out his vial into the air, and a great voice went out of heaven from the throne, and said, It is done [saying, It is done]. 17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
18 And lightnings were made, and voices, and thunders; and a great earth-moving was made, which manner never was, since men were on earth [since men were upon earth], such earth-moving so great. 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.
19 And the great city was made into three parts, and the cities of heathen men felled down [And the great city is broken into three parts, and the cities of heathen men fell down]; and great Babylon came into mind before God, to give to it the cup of wine of the indignation of his wrath. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath.

And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
