|<< Revelation 16 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And I heard a great voice from the Temple that said to the seven Angels: “Go and pour out the seven vessels of the passion of God on The Earth.”

3And the second Angel poured his vessel into The Sea and The Sea became as dead, and every living animal in the sea died.
4And the third Angel poured his vessel into the rivers and into the springs of water, and they became blood.
5And I heard the Angel of the waters saying, “You are righteous, who are and have been, and you are holy, who have decreed these things,
6Because they have shed the blood of the Prophets and of The Holy Ones, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve it.”
7And I heard the altar saying: “Yes, LORD JEHOVAH God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.”
8And the fourth Angel poured his vessel over the Sun, and it was given him to scorch people with fire.
9And the children of men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has authority over these plagues, and they did not repent to give him glory.
10And the fifth Angel poured his vessel over the throne of The Beast, and its Kingdom became darkness, and they were gnawing their tongues from the pain.
11And they blasphemed the name of The God of Heaven due to their pains and due to their sores, and they did not repent of their works.
12And the sixth Angel poured his vessel over the great river Euphrates, and its waters dried up that the way of the Kings from the East may be prepared.
13And I saw from the mouth of The Dragon and from the mouth of The Beast and from the mouth of The False Prophet, three foul spirits like frogs,
14For they are the spirits of Demons who performs signs, which go into the Kings of the habitable Earth, to gather them to the war of that great day of God Almighty.
15“Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

20And every island fled and the mountains were not found.
21And great hailstones, about a talent, fell from the sky on the children of men, and the children of men cursed God because of the plague of hail, because his plague was very great.
