[Revelation 16]

     16:1 And I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven messengers, Proceed* away and pour* out the seven bowls of the fury of God into the earth.

     16:2 And the first went and poured out his bowl into the earth, and it became an evil sore and wicked upon the men who have the mark of the beast and who are worshiping his image.

     16:3 And the second messenger poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like thatof the dead, and every living soul died in the sea.

     16:4 And the third messenger poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of the waters, and it became blood. 16:5 And I heard the messenger of the waters saying, You are righteous, who is and who was, the Holy One, because you judged these things; 16:6 because they poured out theblood of holy-ones and prophets and you gave blood to them to drink because they are worthy.16:7 And I heard from the altar saying, Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, your judgments are true and righteous.

     16:8 And the fourth messenger poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to burn men in fire. 16:9 And men were burnt with great heat and the men blasphemed the name of God who has the authority over these wounds, and they did not repent to give him glory.

     16:10 And the fifth messenger poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened, and they were gnawing their tongues out of pain, 16:11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven out of their pains and out of their sores, and they did not repent from their works.

     16:12 And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, in order that the way of the kings who come from the rising of the sun might be prepared. 16:13And I saw 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 like frogs; 16:14 for* they are spirits of demons, doing*signs; which travel out to the kings of the whole inhabited-earth, to gather them together to the war of that great day of God the Almighty. 16:15 (Behold, I am coming like a thief. The fortunate one is watching and keeping his garments, in order that he may not walk naked and in order thatthey may see his indecency.) 16:16 And they gathered them together into the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.

     16:17 And the seventh poured out his bowl upon the air, and there came forth a loud voice from the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It has happened. 16:18 And there became lightnings and thunders and voices, and there became a great earthquake, such-as did not happen from which time men were born upon the earth, so-great an earthquakeС so great! 16:19 And the great city became divided into three parts and the cities of the nations fell and Babylon the great was remembered in God's sight, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. 16:20 And every island fled away and the mountains were not found. 16:21 And great hail, approximately a talant's poundage, {i.e. 58-80 lbs.} descends from heaven upon men and men blasphemed God from the wound of the hail, because its wound is extremely great.
