CLV(i) 1 And I perceived another strong messenger descending out of heaven, clothed with a cloud, and the rainbow on his head, and his face as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire, 2 and having in his hand a tiny open scroll. And he places his right foot on the sea, yet the left on the land." 3 And he cries with a loud voice, even as a lion is bellowing. And when he cries, the seven thunders speak with their own voices." 4 And when the seven thunders speak, I was about to be writing. And I hear a voice out of heaven saying, "Seal what things the seven thunders speak,and "Them you should not be writing." 5 And the messenger whom I perceived standing on the sea and on the land lifts his right hand to heaven 6 and swears by Him Who is living for the eons of the eons, Who creates heaven and that which is in it, and the earth and that which is in it, and the sea and that which is in it, that there will be no longer a time of delay, 7 but in the days of the seventh messenger's voice, whenever he may be about to be trumpeting, the secret of God is consummated also, as He evangelizes to His own slaves and the prophets." 8 And the voice which I hear out of heaven speaks again with me, and is saying, "Go, get the tiny scroll open in the hand of the messenger standing on the sea and on the land." 9 And I came away to the messenger, saying to him to give me the tiny scroll. And he is saying to me, "Take it and devour it; and it will be making your bowels bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey." 10 And I got the tiny scroll out of the hand of the messenger, and devoured it. And in my mouth it was sweet as honey. And when I ate it, my bowels were made bitter." 11 And they are saying to me, "You must prophesy again over peoples and nations and languages and many kings."
