1I SAW another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was wrapped in cloud, with a rainbow over his head; his face shone like the sun and his legs were like pillars of fire. 2In his hand he held a little scroll which had been opened. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left on the land, 3and gave a great shout like the roar of a lion; when he shouted, the seven thunders spoke. 4I was about to write down what the seven thunders had said, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, ‘Put under seal what the seven thunders have said; do not write it down.’ 5Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and the land raised his right hand towards heaven 6and swore by him who lives for ever, who created heaven and earth and the sea and everything in them: ‘There shall be no more delay; 7when the time comes for the seventh angel to sound his trumpet, the hidden purpose of God will have been fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets.’

8The voice which I had heard from heaven began speaking to me again; it said, ‘Go and take the scroll which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and the land.’ 9I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He answered, ‘Take it, and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will taste as sweet as honey.’ 10I took the scroll from the angel's hand and ate it, and in my mouth it did taste as sweet as honey, but when I swallowed it my stomach turned sour.

11Then I was told, ‘Once again you must utter prophecies over many nations, races, languages, and kings.’
