1 And I saw another strong angel coming down out of :heaven, arrayed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his :head, and his :face as the sun, and his :feet as pillars of fire; 2 and he had in his :hand a little book open: and he set his :right :foot upon the sea, and the left upon the earth; 3 and he cried with a great voice, just as a lion roareth: and when he cried, the seven thunders spake their :voices. 4 And when the seven thunders spake, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from :heaven saying, Seal what things the seven thunders spake, and write them not. 5 And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the earth lifted up his :right :hand to :heaven, 6 and sware by him that liveth unto the ages of the ages, who created the heaven and the things therein, and the earth and those therein, and the sea and those therein, that there shall not be a time anymore: 7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to trump, then is also finished the mystery of :God, according to the good tidings which he declared to his :bondmen the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from :heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, Go, take the booklet which is open in the hand of the angel that standeth on the sea and on the earth. 9 And I went unto the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he saith to me, Take, and eat it up; and it shall make thy :belly bitter, but in thy :mouth it shall be sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the hand of the angel, and ate it up; and it was in my :mouth as sweet as honey: and when I had eaten it, my: belly was made bitter. 11 And they say to me, Thou must prophesy again over many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.
