Revelation of John 10


The Strong Angel with the Small Scroll

1And I saw [2angel 1a strong] coming down from the heaven, wearing a cloud and the rainbow upon his head. And his face was as the sun, and his feet as columns of fire. 2And he had in his hand a small scroll being opened. And he put [3foot 1his 2right] upon the sea, and the left upon the land.

The Seven Thunders

3And he cried out [2voice 1with a great], as a lion roars. And when he cried out, [4spoke 1the 2seven 3thunders] the things of their own voices. 4And when [4spoke 1the 2seven 3thunders], I was about to write; and I heard a voice out of the heaven saying to me, Set a seal upon what [4spoke 1the 2seven 3thunders], and do not write these things. 5And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea, and upon the earth, lifted his hand, the right one, to the heaven. 6And he swore by an oath, by the one living into the eons of the eons, who created the heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it; for delay will not any longer be; 7but in the days of the sound of the seventh angel, whenever he is about to trump, and [4should be initiated 1the 2mystery 3of God], which good news was announced by his bondmen the prophets.

The Small Scroll Is Eaten

8And the voice which I heard from out of the heaven, again spoke with me, and saying, Go, take the small scroll, the one being open in the hand of the angel standing upon the sea, and upon the land! 9And I went forth to the angel, saying to him, Give to me the small scroll! And he says to me, Take and devour it! and it shall embitter your belly, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey. 10And I took the small scroll from out of the hand of the angel, and devoured it; and it was in my mouth as [2honey 1sweet]; and when I ate it [2was made bitter 1my belly]. 11And he says to me, It is necessary for you again to prophesy over peoples, and over nations, and languages, and kings -- many.
