The First Six Bowls of Wrath

1And I heard a great voice from the temple, saying to the seven Angels: “Go forth and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God upon the earth.”

2And the first Angel went forth and poured out his bowl upon the earth. And a severe and most grievous wound occurred upon the men who had the character of the beast, and upon those who adored the beast or its image.

3And the second Angel poured out his bowl upon the sea. And it became like the blood of the dead, and every living creature in the sea died.

4And the third Angel poured out his bowl upon the rivers and the sources of water, and these became blood. 5And I heard the Angel of the waters saying: “You are just, O Lord, who is and who was: the Holy One who has judged these things. 6For they have shed the blood of the Saints and the Prophets, and so you have given them blood to drink. For they deserve this.” 7And from the altar, I heard another one, saying, “Even now, O Lord God Almighty, your judgments are true and just.”

8And the fourth Angel poured out his bowl upon the sun. And it was given to him to afflict men with heat and fire. 9And men were scorched by the great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God, who holds power over these afflictions, but they did not repent, so as to give him glory.

10And the fifth Angel poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast. And his kingdom became darkened, and they gnawed at their tongues out of anguish. 11And they blasphemed the God of heaven, because of their anguish and wounds, but they did not repent from their works.

12And the sixth Angel poured out his bowl upon that great river Euphrates. And its water dried up, so that a way might be prepared for the kings from the rising of the sun.

13And I saw, from the mouth of the dragon, and from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophetess, three unclean spirits go out in the manner of frogs. 14For these are the spirits of the demons that were causing the signs. And they advance to the kings of the entire earth, to gather them for battle on the great day of Almighty God. 15“Behold, I arrive like a thief. Blessed is he who is vigilant and who preserves his vestment, lest he walk naked and they see his disgrace.” 16And he shall gather them together at a place which is called, in Hebrew, Armageddon.

The Seventh Bowl of Wrath

17And the seventh Angel poured out his bowl upon the air. And a great voice went out of the temple from the throne, saying: “It is done.” 18And there were lightnings and voices and thunders. And a great earthquake occurred, of a kind such as has never happened since men have been upon the earth, so great was this kind of earthquake. 19And the Great City became divided into three parts. And the cities of the Gentiles fell. And Babylon the great came to mind before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the indignation of his wrath. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And hail as heavy as a talent descended from the sky upon men. And men blasphemed God, because of the affliction of the hail, for it was exceedingly great.
