1 AND I saw another mighty angel descending from heaven, clothed (with a) cloud, and the bow of the cloud (was) upon his head; and his countenance was as the sun, and his feet as columns of fire.
2 And he had in his hand an open book; and he set his right foot upon the sea, but the left upon the land,
3 and cried with a great voice, as the roar of a lion. And when he had cried, seven thunders spoke their voices.
4 And when those seven thunders had spoken, I was about to write. And I heard a voice from heaven, which said, Seal those (things) which the seven thunders have spoken, and write them not.
5 And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the land, lifted his right hand to heaven,
6 and sware by Him who liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and those who are in it, and the earth and those that are in it, and the sea and those that are in it, That time no more shall be;
7 but (that) in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of Aloha shall be completed, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake with me again, and said, Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who standeth upon the sea and upon the land.
9 And I went to the angel, and said to him, Give me the book. And he said to me, Take, and eat it; and it will embitter thee thy belly, but in thy mouth it will be sweet as honey.
10 And I took the book from the hand of the angel, and ate it. And it was in my mouth as sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it my belly was made bitter.
11 And he said to me, It behoves thee yet to prophesy concerning many nations, and concerning peoples and princes and kings.
