Prelude to the Bowl Judgments
1Then ⚓I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: ⚓seven angels having the seven last plagues, ⚓for in them the wrath of God is complete.
2And I saw something like ⚓a sea of glass ⚓mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, ⚓over his image and over his mark and over the ⚓number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, ⚓having harps of God.
3They sing ⚓the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the ⚓Lamb, saying:
⚓“Great and marvelous are Your works,
Lord God Almighty!
⚓Just and true are Your ways,
O King of the saints!
4⚓Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are⚓holy.
For ⚓all nations shall come and worship before You,
For Your judgments have been manifested.”
5After these things I looked, and behold, ⚓the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.
6And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, ⚓clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.
7⚓Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God ⚓who lives forever and ever.
8⚓The temple was filled with smoke ⚓from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
