1 And I saw another messenger strong coming down from the heaven, having been clothed with a cloud, and the rainbow on the head of him, and the face of him as the sun, and the feet of him as pillars of fire;
2 and having in the hand of himself a little scroll having been opened; and he placed the foot of himself the right on the sea, the and left on the land;
3 and he cried with a voice great even as a lion roars. And when he cried, spoke the seven thunders the of themselves voices.
4 And when spoke the seven thunders, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from the heaven saying: Seal thou up what spoke the seven thunders, and not these things thou mayest write.
5 And the messenger, whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land, lifted up the hand of himself the right towards the heaven,
6 and he swore by the one living for the ages of the ages, who created the heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in her, and the sea and the things in her, because time not yet shall be;
7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh messenger, when he may be about to sound, and be finished the secret of the God, as he announced glad tidings the of himself bondservants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from the heaven, again speaking with me, and saying: Go thou, take thou the little scroll that having been opened in the hand of the messenger of the one standing on the sea and on the land.
9 And I went to the messenger, saying to him, to give to me the little scroll. And he says to me: Take thou and eat thou it; and it will embitter to thee the belly, but in the mouth of thee it will be sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little scroll out of the hand of the messenger, and ate it; and it was in the mouth of me as honey, sweet; and when I ate it, was made bitter the belly of me.
11 And he says to me: It behooves thee again to prophesy to peoples and nations and tongues and kings many.
