Modern Literal Version
[Revelation 10]

     10:1 And I saw a strong messenger descending from heaven, having been dressed with a cloud, and the rainbow is upon his head and his face is like the sun and his feet like pillars of fire; 10:2and holding a book in his hand, which has been opened and he placed his right foot upon the sea and his left upon the earth; 10:3 and he cried out with a loud voice, just-like a lion roars and when he cried out, the seven thunders spoke their own voices.

     10:4 And when the seven thunders spoke their voices, I was about to write and I heard a voice from heaven saying, Seal up the things which the seven thunders spoke and do not write them. 10:5And the messenger whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his right hand to the heaven, 10:6 and had sworn by the one who lives forevermore, who created the heaven and the things in it and the earth and the things in it and the sea and the things in itС that time will be no longer delay. 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh messenger, whenever he is about to sound, and the mystery of God was completed, as he proclaimed the good-news to his bondservants, the prophets. 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard it again speaking with me and saying, Proceed away, take the book which has been opened in the hand of the messenger who is standing upon the sea and upon the earth. 10:9 And I went away to the messenger, saying to him to give me the book.

     And he says to me, Take it and devour it, and it will make your belly bitter, but it will be sweet like honey in your mouth. 10:10 And I took the book out of the messenger's hand and devoured it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth and when I ate it, my belly was made bitter.

     10:11 And they are saying to me, It is essential for you to prophesy again over many peoples and nations and languages and many kings.
