Revelation 16

<< Revelation 16 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth; and an evil and grievous sore fell upon the men who had the mark of the beast and upon those who worshipped its image. 3And the second angel poured out his vial into the sea; and it became blood as of a dead man, and every living soul died in the sea. 4And the third angel poured out his vial into the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, who art and wast the Holy one because thou hast judged these things; 6for they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they deserve it. 7And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

8And the fourth angel poured out his vial against the sun; and it was given unto it to scorch men with fire. 9And men were scorched with great heat, and 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 out his vial upon the throne of the beast; and its kingdom was filled with darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11and blasphemed the God of the heaven because of their pains and their sores and did not repent of their deeds.

12And the sixth angel poured out his vial into the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way of the kings from the rising of the sun might be prepared. 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches and keeps his garments lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16And he gathered them together into the place which in Hebrew is called, Armageddon.

17And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of the heaven from the throne, saying, It is done. 18Then there were voices and thunders and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as has never been since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the Gentiles fell; and Babylon the great came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
