King James VersionRevelation10


1 And I saw an­oth­er mighty an­gel come down from heav­en, clothed with a cloud: and a rain­bow was upon his head, and his face was as it were 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 his left foot on the earth, 3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, sev­en thun­ders ut­tered their voic­es. 4 And when the sev­en thun­ders had ut­tered their voic­es, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heav­en say­ing unto me, Seal up those things which the sev­en thun­ders ut­tered, and write them not. 5 And the an­gel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lift­ed up his hand to heav­en, 6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ev­er, who cre­at­ed heav­en, and the things that there­in are, and the earth, and the things that there­in are, and the sea, and the things which are there­in, that there should be time no longer: 7 But in the days of the voice of the sev­enth an­gel, when he shall be­gin to sound, the mys­tery of God should be fin­ished, as he hath de­clared to his ser­vants the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from heav­en spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the lit­tle book which is open in the hand of the an­gel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 9 And I went unto the an­gel, and said unto him, Give me the lit­tle book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy bel­ly bit­ter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as hon­ey. 10 And I took the lit­tle book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as hon­ey: and as soon as I had eat­en it, my bel­ly was bit­ter. 11 And he said unto me, Thou must proph­esy again be­fore many peo­ples, and na­tions, and tongues, and kings.
