Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling 1the seven angels, "Go and 2pour out on the earth 3the seven bowls of the wrath of God."
So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful 4sores came upon the people who bore 5the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and 6it became like the blood of a corpse, and 7every living thing died that was in the sea.
The third angel poured out his bowl into 8the rivers and the springs of water, and 9they became blood.
And I heard the angel in charge of the waters say, 10"Just are you, 11O Holy One, 12who is and who was, for you brought these judgments.
For 13they have shed the blood of 14saints and prophets, and 15you have given them blood to drink. It is what they deserve!"
And I heard 16the altar saying, "Yes, Lord God the Almighty, 17true and just are your judgments!"
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people 18with fire.
They were scorched by the fierce heat, and 19they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. 20They did not repent 21and give him glory.
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on 22the throne of the beast, and 23its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in anguish
and cursed 24the God of heaven for their pain and 25sores. 26They did not repent of their deeds.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on 27the great river Euphrates, and 28its water was dried up, 29to prepare the way for the kings 30from the east.
And I saw, coming out of the mouth of 31the dragon and out of the mouth of 32the beast and out of the mouth of 33the false prophet, three 34unclean spirits like 35frogs.
For they are 36demonic spirits, 37performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, 38to assemble them for battle on 39the great day of God the Almighty.
("Behold, 40I am coming like a thief! 41Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, 42that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!")
And 43they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called 44Armageddon.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into 45the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, 46"It is done!"
And there were 47flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and 48a great earthquake 49such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake.
50The great city 51was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God 52remembered 53Babylon the great, 54to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.
And 55every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.
And 56great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and 57they cursed God for 58the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.
