Revelation of John 10

Furthermore, they did not repent of their murder, sorcery, sexual immorality, [and] theft.

The Angel and the Small Scroll

Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, [with] a rainbow above his head. His face [was] like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. He held in his hand a small scroll, which lay open. He placed his right foot on the sea and [his] left [foot] on the land. Then he cried out in a loud voice like the roar of a lion. And when he cried out, the seven thunders sounded their voices. When the seven thunders had spoken, I was about to put it in writing. But I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and {do} not write it {down} .” Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven. And he swore by Him who lives forever [and] ever, who created heaven and [everything] in it, the earth and [everything] in it, and the sea and [everything] in it: “There will be no more delay! But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound [his] trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, just as He proclaimed to His servants, the prophets.” Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the small scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel standing on the sea and on the land.” 10  And I went to the angel [and] said, “Give me the small scroll.” “Take [it] and eat it,” he said. “ - It will make your stomach {bitter} , but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.”
Numbers 5:24; Ezekiel 3:3
11  [So] I took the small scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it; and it was sweet as honey in my mouth, [but] when I had eaten it, my stomach turned bitter.
