Revelation 16:1-21, NLT
1Then I heard a mighty voice from the Temple say to the seven angels, “Go your ways and pour out on the earth the seven bowls containing God’s wrath.”
2So the first angel left the Temple and poured out his bowl on the earth, and horrible, malignant sores broke out on everyone who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue.
3Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse. And everything in the sea died.
4Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs, and they became blood.
“You are just, O Holy One, who is and who always was,
because you have sent these judgments.
6Since they shed the blood
of your holy people and your prophets,
you have given them blood to drink.
It is their just reward.”
7And I heard a voice from the altar,*16:7 Greek I heard the altar. saying,
“Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty,
your judgments are true and just.”
8Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, causing it to scorch everyone with its fire.
10Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. His subjects ground their teeth*16:10 Greek gnawed their tongues. in anguish,
12Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great Euphrates River, and it dried up so that the kings from the east could march their armies toward the west without hindrance.
15“Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.”
16And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.*16:16 Or Harmagedon.
17Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And a mighty shout came from the throne in the Temple, saying, “It is finished!”
