Murdock(i) 1 And I saw another mighty angel, that descended from heaven, clothed with a cloud; and a cloud-bow was over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. 2 And he had in his hand an open little book: and he placed his right foot upon the sea, and his left upon the land: 3 and he cried with a loud voice, as a lion roareth: and when he had cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders had spoken, I was about to write. And I heard a voice from heaven, saying: Seal up the things which the seven thunders have uttered, and write them not. 5 And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea and the land, raised his right hand to heaven, 6 and swore, by him who liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that the time should be no longer; 7 but, in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall sound, and the mystery of God shall be consummated; as he announced to his servants the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from heaven, spoke to me again, and said: Go, take the little open book in the hand of the angel that standeth on the sea and on the land. 9 And I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, Take, and eat it: and it will make thy bowels bitter, but in thy mouth it will be sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book from the hand of the angel, and ate it: and it was in my mouth sweet like honey: and when I had eaten it, my bowels were bitter. 11 And be said to me, Thou must again prophesy upon many nations, and peoples, and princes, and kings.
