Preparation for the Bowl Judgments

1Then I saw another great and awe-inspiring signa in heaven:b seven angels with the seven last plagues, for with them, God’s wrath will be completed.c 2I also saw something like a sea of glassd mixed with fire, and those who had won the victory over the beast, his image,e and the number of his name, were standing on the sea of glass with harps from God.f, g 3They sang the song of God’s servant Mosesh and the song of the Lamb:

Great and awe-inspiring are Your works,

Lord God, the Almighty;

righteous and truei are Your ways,

King of the Nations.jk

4Lord, who will not fear

and glorify Your name?

Because You alone are holy,l

for all the nations will come

and worship before Youm

because Your righteous acts

have been revealed.

5After this I looked, and the heavenly sanctuary — the tabernacle of testimonyn — was opened.o 6Out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues, dressed in clean, bright linen, with gold sashes wrapped around their chests. 7One of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.p 8Then the sanctuary was filled with smoke from God’s glory and from His power,q and no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
