CHAPTER 16

The seven vials of God's wrath
16:1-21

1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

I heard a loud voice coming from the temple

that said to the seven angels,

Pour out the vials of God's wrath on the earth.

2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

The first angel poured his vial on the earth.

And ugly and painful sores

plagued those with the mark of the beast.

3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

The second angel poured his vial on the sea.

And it became the blood of a dead man,

killing everything in the sea.

4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

The third angel poured his vial on the rivers.

And they too became blood.

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

I heard the angel say,

You are righteous, Lord, for doing this.

6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

They shed the blood of saints and prophets,

so you gave them blood to drink.

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

And I heard someone else say,

You are righteous and your judgments are true.

8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

The fourth angel poured out his vial on the sun

to give it power to burn people with fire.

9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

The sun burned the people, and they blasphemed God,

but they didn't repent or give God glory.

10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

The fifth angel poured out his vial,

and the people gnawed their tongues in pain.

11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

And they blasphemed God, because of their pain.

But they didn't repent.

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

The sixth angel poured out his vial,

and the Euphrates River dried up.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

I saw three frog-like unclean spirits

come out of the mouths

of a dragon, beast, and false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

They are the spirits of miracle-working devils,

who gather kings to fight on God's great day.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

I will come like a thief.

Keep your clothes on,

or you might have to walk naked

and everyone will see your shame. [1]

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

He gathered the armies together at a place called Armageddon.

17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

The seventh angel poured out his vial,

and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven,

saying, "It is done."

18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

There were voices, thunder, lightning, and an earthquake.

20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

All the islands ran away,

and the mountains couldn't be found.

21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Hailstones that weighed a talent fell on people. [2]

And they blasphemed God for sending the hail.
