1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, »Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.«
2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and foul and loathsome sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshipped his image.
3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.
4 The third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water, and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, »Righteous are you, who are and who were, O Holy One,because you judged these things;
6 for they shed the blood of saints and prophets,and you have given them blood to drink.They deserve it.«
7 And I heard the altar saying, »Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty,true and just are your judgments.«
8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to it to scorch men with fire.
9 Men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory.
10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness; men gnawed their tongues in agony
11 and they cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and they did not repent of their deeds.
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the East.
13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs;
14 for they are spirits of demons, performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
15 (»Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.«)
16 And they gathered them together at the place which in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, »It is done!«
18 And there were flashes of lightning and voices and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be on the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.
19 The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 Huge hailstones, about a hundred pounds each, fell from heaven upon men. And men cursed God for the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
