The Bowls of God's Wrath
Righteous art thou, who art and who wast, thou Holy One,
because thou didst thus judge:
16:6for they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets,
and blood hast thou given them to drink:
they are worthy.
16:7And I heard the altar saying,
16:8And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given unto it to scorch men with fire. 16:9And men were scorched men with great heat: and they blasphemed the name of God who hath the power over these plagues; and they repented not to give him glory.
16:10And the fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was darkened; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 16:11and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they repented not of their works.
16:12And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river, the river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way might by made ready for the kings that come from the sunrising. 16:13And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, as it were frogs: 16:14for they are spirits of demons, working signs; which go forth unto the kings of the whole world, to gather them together unto the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. 16:15(Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walked naked, and they see his shame.) 16:16And they gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew Har-magedon.
16:17And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air; and there came forth a great voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It is done: 16:18and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men upon the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty. 16:19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 16:20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 16:21And great hail, every stone about the weight of a talent, cometh down out of heaven upon men: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof is exceeding great.
