Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth. They held back the earth's four winds so that no wind would blow against the earth, the sea, or any tree. 1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
2 I saw another angel coming up from the east, holding the seal of the living God. He cried out with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given the power to damage the earth and sea. 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
3 He said, "Don't damage the earth, the sea, or the trees until we have put a seal on the foreheads of those who serve our God." 3 "Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God."
